Philia

When compatible minds meet, a connection forms that transcends the merely conceptual — scans of the human brain during stimulating conversation show neural activity physically synchronizing in glowing, interlaced formations. Through the mind of another, we may expand infinitely. In the spirit of the LOVE OF THE MIND, presenting a gift guide of intellectual gravity.

As a gesture of giving back, special gift packaging designed in collaboration with Software Studios is available for purchase. 100% of proceeds will benefit the nonprofit organization, Housing Works, whose outstanding work in the New York City community and beyond has fought against the dual crises of homelessness and HIV/AIDS since its founding in 1992.
