Ales Kot writes because nothing else makes sense. He's responsible for screenplays, video games, graphic novels and products/experiences which do not even have their names assigned as of yet. His portfolio includes Disney, Warner Brothers, Image Comics, Marvel Entertainment, DC Entertainment, Dark Horse Comics and more.

If you want to contact him, his email is aleskotsays at gmail and his cell phone is 310-259-7803. If you want to talk with his manager, contact Ari Lubet at 3 Arts Entertainment. If you want to talk with his agents, contact Roger Green and Phil d'Amecourt at WME Entertainment. If you want to talk with his lawyer, contact Caitlin DiMotta at Impact Law Group. If you want to talk with his imaginary platypus, you better imagine it.

"I know people say I write a lot about myself. To that I sometimes I feel like responding ‘Look at the Ongoing Moment and But Beautiful – there’s nothing of me in those books.’ And it’s certainly not the case that I’m any more self-absorbed than the average writer. Probably if you did some sort of test you’d find that my levels of self-absorption are absolutely average or maybe below average. But I really do have absolute faith in myself as a researcher, I can find exactly what the author wants. I’m the canary in the coal mine of whatever it is I happen to be writing about. Let’s say the First World War – I’ll write about my own very peculiar take on it, this idea that the thing about the First World War is that it happened in the past: a stupid thought. Except that it’s such an obvious thought that nobody has had it. And I elaborate on that, and it turns out that by being very faithful to the vagaries of my own perception of things, it strikes a chord with other people whose circumstances are very different to mine. I have that faith in the fact that by being very particular and very personal, then it’ll have some sort of general resonance."

Epigenetic tie to neuropsychiatric disorders found
Dysfunction in dopamine signaling profoundly changes the activity level of about 2,000 genes in the brain’s prefrontal cortex and may be an underlying cause of certain complex neuropsychiatric disorders, such as schizophrenia, according to UC Irvine scientists.



This epigenetic alteration of gene activity in brain cells that receive this neurotransmitter showed for the first time that dopamine deficiencies can affect a variety of behavioral and physiological functions regulated in the prefrontal cortex.
The study, led by Emiliana Borrelli, a UCI professor of microbiology & molecular genetics, appears online in the journal Molecular Psychiatry.

Oh wow… this is amazing… 
This means that so many things that we’ve been looking for pure genetic causes for clearly aren’t, and yet at the same time they are environmentally inherited!
