I'm a 29-year-old guy living in the UK.
I love the natural world, especially the beauty of the sky and the universe. I love playing the piano and acoustic guitar. I love reading about the scientific explanations of our everyday experiences (eg. chaos theory). I love reading sci-fi and fantasy fiction, especially by Arthur C Clarke, H G Wells, Isaac Asimov and J R R Tolkien. I love thinking philosophically about mind, consciousness, dreams, reality and spirituality.
I'm interested in the psychology of our everyday behaviour, and philosophical discussions about morality. I'm very interested in the latest discoveries in physics and astronomy, and I watch every single episode of The Sky at Night. The image at the top of my blog is a photo of the Antennae Galaxies.
