You have arrived at a garden of art, science, poetry, music and ideas, and landed on a platform that serves to connect diverse domains and to collect various strands of the interests and workings of SoundEagle🦅. The garden has gradually become a reasonably fertile and multidisciplinary playground. Hopefully, it will always remain varied but consistent enough to entice and satisfy those who are artful and perceptive, those who delight in detail and texture, and those who resonate with the philosophical underpinnings and aesthetic approaches being featured on this website.
📑Posts and Pages📃 will sprout from time to time in the garden. It is SoundEagle🦅’s goal and pleasure that you find ample enjoyment and meanings in perusing those 📑Posts and Pages📃, which, as you might have observed, tend to be polysemic, pluralistic and multifaceted, given that they often contain complementary prose, poetry, art, graphics, cartoons, animations, games, puzzles, music and video, sewn and strewn together synergistically as well as aesthetically, but whose denotations and connotations are left in your hands, in your eyes as a beholder, in your ears as an audience, in your mind as an interpreter, in your heart as a connoisseur, in your patronage as a reader, in your discretion as a fellow blogger, and in your whim as a freethinker.
Please feel free to leave plenty of your footprints, to bare your soles and souls, to share your thoughts and feelings, to join SoundEagle🦅 on a special quest of empathy and consilience, via wisdom and understanding, through discovery and appreciation, all of which are further bolstered by the liberal provision of creative and bespoke integration of multimodal affordances and multimedia presentations. For those who have a playful or adventurous streak, your patience with wading through 📑Posts and Pages📃 will be rewarded by music and video as well as interactive games, puzzles and animations, all of which await your discovery and enjoyment whilst imparting to you a wonderful sense of creative agency as you explore this many-splendoured website whose multifarious contents are eclectically created or curated with a prominent emphasis on the winsome meshing of both functionalism and aestheticism.
One of the ongoing goals of SoundEagle🦅 is the nuanced conveyance and stylized rendition of various messages and ideas through certain thematic threads and inventive interfaces whilst connecting, organizing and bolstering a variety of textual, visual and aural elements, which are intended to be mutually enhanced by their multiplicity and facilitated by their multisensory contexts, interactive potentials and synergetic significance, irrespective of their degree of confluence and interdependency. With respect to the style, design and content, SoundEagle🦅 hopes that you will find something to your liking, to jolt your memory, to pique your interest, to linger in your mind, to provoke a discussion, to question a paradigm, to gain new insights, to see from multiple perspectives, to become more holistic — something that provides the extra spark for you to be more enriched and consilient — something born of, or connected to, the interests of SoundEagle🦅, which include the following domains:
You are welcome to taste the fruits of SoundEagle🦅’s labour, which are meant to be delivered in all their bespoke glories to your satisfaction so as to fulfil your high expectation with flying colours whilst offering you engaging experience of SoundEagle🦅’s intellectual home, sonic nest, musical den and artistic eyrie via the synergy of excogitation, cerebration and intellection.

SoundEagle🦅 added a quote:
Designed and administered by SoundEagle🦅, this website has served as a multimedia playground to investigate the polyphonic dance of ideas, to consider their manifold eddies, their unexpected simultaneities or juxtapositions, as well as their multiple embodiments and modes of expressions, as they unfurl through the lenses of plurality, the faces of diversity, and the facets of multidisciplinarity, intermingling from time to time, and topic to topic, with the semantic fields of culture, the speculative realms of philosophy, the aesthetic worlds of art, and the analytic spheres of science.
Given that some of SoundEagle🦅’s 📑Posts and Pages📃 are fairly lengthy and laden with multimedia, attempts have been made to reorganize and tighten the structures and presentations in the hope that the website can load and display its contents faster. Should you like music accompaniment whilst browsing, you are free to enjoy listening to music composed and recorded by SoundEagle🦅, on demand and to your heart’s content, insofar as the music will play continuously once it is manually started, until paused or stopped.

Also contributing to the contents of this website is the scientist, naturalist, writer, biologist, entomologist, environmentalist, vegan and bush walker, Dr Craig Eisemann.
The contemporary tertiary education system and some of the intramural politics and bottom-line approaches operating at universities can be detrimental and even hostile to academic research, especially multidisciplinary undertakings. There are both limits and segregations imposed on intellectual liberty with respect to research territories and knowledge demarcations, beyond which there are barely scant platforms and rare opportunities to generate some debates, discussions or studies on issues never, seldom or inadequately debated or contested before. Since demonstrating a substantial engagement with existing literature and critiquing contested areas of thought are enshrined and mandatory, those areas that have not been researched or contested would tend to be much less favoured or noticed, if not automatically consigned to or considered as non-academic or second-rate materials. In other words, there are significant barriers to becoming maverick and holistic in one’s academic life, and to functioning as an exemplary liberal scholar, in addition to the added risk of being ignored, abandoned, consigned or ostracised as anachronistic proponents or promulgators of erudition and education. It is unfortunate that those who conduct research at colleges, universities or other tertiary institutions face constant pressure to have clearly defined research topics and agendas, which are supposed or expected to be concentrated on and shaped by the most contested, recognized or commensurable areas that comply or align well with the prevailing paradigm, academic climate and intellectual zeitgeist, in which ideas, data, models, methodologies and theories are created, examined, refined and fought over and over again by peers and rivals, and repeatedly quoted with zest by fellow scholars and aspiring students to show that they are up there with the most consequential leaders. Contests are usually fought contiguously, with rivals coming from within a discipline and focussing on specialism and micro-topics. At the multidisciplinary level, the dins and roars of such contests are few and far between, as fault lines seldom straddle continents of knowledge. Even when they do, they are often dismissed, misunderstood or ignored rather than examined or contested. The upshot is that academic research is increasingly reduced to playing an intramural game for “points” that earn coterie repute and disputable expectation, where conditions conducive to unbridled, exploratory or revolutionary ways of conducting research or investigation have become very illusive, even more so as colleges and universities opt to operate under the model of mass education and customer satisfaction, all too often underfunded, overburdened, vocationalized and instrumentalized, becoming more performance-managed, metricized, casualized and marketized under the pervasive influence of privatisation, consumerism, audit culture, managerialism and neoliberal orthodoxy.[❆]
The rich affordances and features available on this website constitute a multipronged approach for circumventing the many restrictions and conventions imposed by academic journals whose contents are often hidden behind paywalls, insofar as self-publishing certainly presents numerous advantages, which, when combined with the dynamic nature of webpages offering contents that can be freely viewed and shared by visitors and commenters, are attractive to the likes of SoundEagle🦅 who has been an inveterate freethinker, teacher and communicator.
Apart from the accessibility of academic works as mentioned earlier, this website and its 📑Posts and Pages📃 have also been meticulously invested with tools and presentational details to mitigate other extant issues that remain to be addressed by scholarly publications. Academic papers published in most if not all conventional journals tend to be highly limited in scope, format and feature, mostly presented in monochrome or greyscale and rarely in colour; cannot include large or complicated illustrations, maps, charts, schematics and/or statistics; unable to incorporate audiovisual contents, videos, animations, pop-ups, hyperlinks, comments, revisions, extensions, user interfaces and other real-time, dynamic or interactive components, let alone social media integration; and ill-suited or ill-prepared to deal with highly innovative, interdisciplinary and/or multidisciplinary works, not to mention that there continue to be few or no referees and reviewers qualified or knowledgeable enough to evaluate them properly and cogently without intellectual oversight and bias.
The longest 📑Posts and Pages📃 are effectively multimedia publications meant for serving users as versatile and comprehensive enchiridions or reference books. Well-formatted and in-depth discussions, analyses and conclusions aside, they contain plenty of hyperlinks, tooltips, quotations, charts, tables, illustrations, animations, infographics and bullet-point summaries as well as navigational menus. Each book-length 📑Post or Page📃 simultaneously exhibits the features and combines the functions of a long-form essay, investigative research, academic dissertation, scholarly monograph and dynamic web document.
The pluralistic experiences offered to you in some highly entertaining multimedia 📑Posts and Pages📃 comprise beautiful and stylistic presentations of Text Art, Photos, Videos, Music, Illustrations, Computer and Web Graphics as well as Games and Animations, many instances of which exemplify the malleability, permeability and cross-fertilization of ideas and cultures, whose fecundity, fluidity and visibility are often facilitated and enhanced by potent rendering tools, social media and emerging technologies, which have various implications for the modulation, transformation and documentation of procedures or practices, including blurring the boundaries of design, creation, interface and workflow, as well as facilitating the understanding of artistry through form, invention, interaction and information.
Under these scenarios, this website has increasingly become a creative, thematic conduit through which fusion, experimentation, appropriation and transformation flow, and where reinterpreting, repurposing, recycling and reinventing can freely combine contrasting or opposing elements from the real and the imaginative, the mundane and the exotic, the popular and the esoteric, as well as the secular and the religious, the artistic and the scientific, whilst embracing the richly textured terrains and novel landscapes of the bespoke, unique, controversial or idiosyncratic. Not surprisingly, many traditionally straightforward hobbies and hitherto simple pastimes, including art, craft, gardening and photography, have taken on more heterogeneous characteristics as they intermingle with other domains and interests, becoming more infused with the purviews of other fields and disciplines.
It is hoped that some of the offerings on this website can also serve as a bridge, conduit or crossing between the East and the West, between the laypersons and the experts, between the proven and the experimental, between the old data and the new findings, between the documented and the anecdotal, by way of judicious translation, edification, promotion and dissemination of information pertaining to the long cultures and traditions that have accompanied certain fields and disciplines and their ardent champions through the dynamic synergy of various pursuits and domains, including prose, poetry, art, graphics, cartoons, animations, games, puzzles, music and video.
In turn, these fields and disciplines can become both catalysts and arenas for recognizing, (re)creating and (re)contextualizing various pursuits and domains with multiple reference points as a means of reflecting and communicating the current state of community and society, and as a way of fostering mutuality, reciprocity and complementarity.
Understood in these terms, the value of certain fields and disciplines can truly begin to be appreciated and defined beyond the straightforward results and immediate implications of admiring, studying, developing and improving them, to the extent that partaking in these fields and disciplines becomes not just an attempt at, or a process of, accruing and capturing knowledge, but also a fruitful endeavour to use certain pursuits and domains and their myriad embodiments and representations as a means of expressing ideas, which are themselves products of instinct (nature), experience (nurture) and technology (tools), guided and shaped by principles and forms of knowledge.
