David Shane is a professor of Physics in Lansing, Michigan. On this Substack he writes about whatever he wants, but as a sort of scientifically-informed and precise-thinking person with a philosophical bent, he often sees connections between one idea and another or one cultural movement and another that go uncommented upon by most… hence the name, Connecting Thoughts.

Aside from his writing here (where he can escape editors that want to truncate his overlong sentences), David is also active on social media (especially, at least until they ban him and everyone else who occasionally has an independent thought, Twitter), and has also been published in The Chalkboard Review, The Detroit News, The Federalist, The Physics Teacher, and Physics World. (He also wrote the textbook for an integrated science class he teaches!)
