One of my many passions

Science is a deep passion of mine, one among many. I am a student of all sciences, but I focus more on Cosmology, Physics, Biology, Evolutionary Biology, Astronomy, Geology, Climate Science, Chaos Theory. The Scientific Method is a great philosophical tool. Die Wissenschaft ist bei mir eine ersnte Leidenschaft, eine unter vielen. Ich bin Student aller Wissenschaften, aber ich konzentriere mich gern auf Kosmologie, Physik, Biologie, Entwicklungsbiologie, Astronomie, Geologie, Klimawissenschaft und Chaostheorie. Die wissenschaftliche Methode ist ein großes philosophisches Werkzeug.

Wild Fact About Me That I love German so much I use it everyday, and even try to interject it into conversations to confuse, befuddle, but also enlighten and hopefully inspire people to learn a foreign language.
My Philosophy Live a simple life with a focus on your true passions and abilities. Be considerate of the feelings and interests of other people, and encourage such behavior. I have to be engaged with the world: I cannot be a passive spectator, a couch-potato citizen. I have a strong opinion about the basic necessities and networks of life: the biosphere and our role in it, food and agriculture, politics, business and industry, social behavior, science.
What Gives Me Hope The human mind and our collective ability to recognize long-term, large-scale problems, to see their consequences, and to act on them. Der menschliche Verstand und unsere kollektive Fähigkeit, langfristig und Massenprobleme zu erkennen, ihre Folge zu sehen und darauf zu wirken.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by Relocalize our society, minimize long-distance and global networks, refocus citizens on what is really important, emphasize biocentrism. Unsere Gesellschaft neu lokalisieren, Fern- und globale Netze minimieren, Bürger sich neu konzentrieren, auf was wirklich wichtig ist und Biozentrismus betonen.
What/who changed my life and why Always asking questions, seeking to find the true reason(s) for things, thinking for myself. Sometimes there is only one right answer, sometimes there are many. Ich stelle immer Fragen, ich suche, der treue Grund für Sachen zu finden, ich bilde mich meine eigene Meinung.
