Welcome to MATTER on Medium

Wait, what am I doing here?

You’re here because, much as we love the old MATTER website, it’s time for us to move forward, and into our new home here on Medium. Fear not: everything you loved at the old site is coming here, plus a whole lot more.

  • Our latest story is about the extraordinary phenomenon of lucid dreaming. It’s called The Dream Catcher, and you can read it here.
  • All of our stories are now going to be free. That means it’s easier than ever to read the stories we craft, and to share the ones that are important to you.
  • For more about our move to Medium, take a read about our plans for MATTER’s second year.
  • Our entire archive of award-winning journalism is transitioning to Medium. Some stories have already made the journey; others are en route. They’ll all be here soon, and they’ll all be free to read.
  • And if we’re new to you, then you might be interested in the story of how we got started.
