A human being is a part of the whole, called by us "Universe," a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation and a foundation for inner security.

The ISSN is 1941-9198.
Loci continues three earlier online publications in MathDL: The Journal of Online Mathematics and its Applications, Digital Classroom Resources, and Convergence. All materials that appeared in these earlier publications may be accessed through Loci, either from Loci: Archives or by using the Loci Search from the Loci homepage.
All articles and other materials submitted to Loci are peer-reviewed. Loci publishes continuously as accepted materials are ready to be posted. Each volume represents a calendar year without subdivision into issues.
Loci takes advantage of the World Wide Web as a publication medium for materials containing dynamic, full-color graphics; internal and external hyperlinks to related resources; applets in Java, Flash, Shockwave, or other languages; MathML, SVG, and other XML markups; audio and video clips; and other Web-based features.
The following types of materials will appear in Loci
