Some people blog about their pets and yet others blog about deep and meaningful thoughts, science, and other things that are important to the world. I probably won’t do any of that here. I’m an anti-theist and I think I see life a little bit differently than many atheists. Sometimes I think the way I see the world is perhaps worth writing down. I have no clue who would want to read it, but here it will be.
Just some mental meanderings. The information age equivalent of talking to myself, I suspect. There is probably nothing wrong with that unless I start leaving comments to myself as well.
I have a profound interest in how we think and remember; how we make decisions and why. I intend to explore that curiosity here. I have a hypothesis that the processes of the human brain are much simpler than has yet been proposed, and it is the complexity of many interlinked processes that has hidden the simple beauty of making decisions within the human mind.
Some fun facts about my life:
- First born to a Pentecostal Evangelical preacher
- I was born with the space race
- When JFK talked about ‘our children’ or future generations, he was talking about me
- My mother first experienced air conditioning in the hospital at my birth – she didn’t like it, it was too cold
- My parents were the first in their families to get a college degree, I don’t have one
- I’ve travelled many places in the world for various reasons, no single place changed my world view
- There is no best place to live, that is something you create where you are, not where you want to go
- My parents taught me to think for myself and look things up, but still handed my religious beliefs to me as a child
- Science has been a constant influence in my life but I am not a scientist by profession
- Every culture has some food dish that equates to Shepherds Pie – they are all safe to eat
- Egyptians had more than 26 flavors of beer. I think this something worth having as a tradition
- I think that a bad day is one where you learn nothing new
