Hey there. My name is Sofo Archon and I feel grateful for all that existence has open-handedly offered me. I enjoy reading, writing, painting, traveling, eating vegan food, and meeting awesome people from around the globe.
The Unbounded Spirit is my one-man labor of love, through which I am sharing part of my being with millions of readers. Created in 2012 with the aim to spread awareness about things that matter, it has helped form a community of over 400,000 like-minded individuals (feel free to join them on facebook or via my newsletter).
The articles you’ll find here touch on a wide range of disciplines, including spirituality, philosophy, psychology, sociology, and economics, but all of them, though different in topic, share something in common: they point to a better way of living.
My intention is not to turn readers into believers, so please don’t read anything you find here without a dose of critical thinking. Just take from my writings what you find personally enlightening and helpful, and discard what doesn’t contribute to your understanding and well-being.
May you learn and enjoy.
Frequently Asked Questions
Here are some frequent (and a few infrequent) questions that I’m being asked by readers who want to know more about me and my work:
Who are you and why do you write here?
I’m a human being, like you, with interests and passions. My most passionate interest has always been to better understand myself and the world, and here I share my experiences and realizations with fellow travelers in this journey called Life.
What are your credentials?
I hold a BSc in Psychology and an MA in Philosophy, but 99,9% of what you’ll read here wasn’t taught to me at university. It is the School of Hard Knocks that taught me most of what I know.
How would you summarize your philosophy?
My philosophy is that one should not live by a philosophy. Life is filled with contradictions, and being attached to any particular philosophical worldview can only prevent one from developing a spherical understanding of the multi-sided reality of existence.
Do you have a religious or political ideology?
No. I prefer to be a freethinker.
Where are you from?
From the country where the idea of democracy is said to have been born yet was never fully put into practice, as in no other country on our small, divided by nations (and other stupid notions) planet.
How do you spend your time when you are not writing?
I love doing plenty of things on a regular basis, such as creating emotionally-stirring paintings, producing thought-provoking videos, taking long walks in nature, reading mind-expanding books, and cooking delicious vegan dishes.
Do you have a favorite quote?
“Don’t believe every quote you read online.”
I’m kidding. Here it is:
“Of all that is written I love only what a man has written with his blood.”
How can I support your work?
You can do so by making a donation — it helps me a lot and I appreciate it deeply.
How can I contact you?
Feel free to send me an email at [email protected]. I love meeting people from around the world, so please introduce yourself and share your thoughts. Just keep in mind that due to a large number of emails I receive each day, I don’t have the time to respond to all of them. I do, however, read each and every email that you send me.
