Vidya is the glue and the duct tape that holds TNS together. It started as just a few sheets of paper mailed to members in 1978. This mailing was the only practical means for members to exchange thoughts and to communicate in those first decades.
Today’s Vidya is a formal journal published six times per year. It often exceeds 50 pages in length and features well written articles, photographs, stories, poems, puzzles and announcements. Content may range from PhD level academic summaries, to high IQ lifestyle. All seem to include interesting and eclectic musings.
Most members access Vidya online as a PDF. For historical reasons, each bi-monthly publication counts as a double issue with two issue numbers. Vidya in 2015 is well beyond 300 issue numbers.
For an extra-cost, you can have a nicely printed version arrive in your mailbox. The extra cost is $20 per year, which about covers the cost of printing and mailing.
