About Us

NPJ was initially imagined from the publisher’s global treks, voyages and wayfaring.

Vision evolves: Our primary aim is developing an accessible journal, touching upon differing and alternative philosophies and ideas in varied fields of human interest – an evolving architecture of the human voice.

We are a group of individuals at global locations from diverse backgrounds and orientations with a shared interest in collaborating and inspiring each other while exploring ideas that are both intuitive and counterintuitive.
