Wild Fact About Me
My Philosophy The Golden Rule
What Gives Me Hope As far as the outlook of the universe is concerned, I have a perspective that Baruch Spinoza came up with a long time ago: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spinoza. Basically, the only god(dess) that exists is the entire universe as a whole. This includes from all forms of pure energy and the smallest subparticles to the largest galaxies and the most powerful black holes and everything else in between (such as humanity).

From this standpoint, we are only dictated by the laws of physics and since we are a part of this universe (i.e. god/goddess), any form of scientific inquiry and discovery is a form of self realization.

With this in mind, the purpose of humanity is to better understand ourselves, our universe, and to honor the fact that we as individuals are all together equally a part of it.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by Make use of all public transit for free. Convert all interstates and major highways into toll roads to encourage the use of mass transit.

Provide single payer health care for all.

Make all education free and universal, from preschool to post graduate university.

Abolish nuclear weapons from all nations, including the United States.

    According to one of my books, the birthday cake's candles should be lighted by a dragon, so that one's good wishes could become true... Hope my greeting card (with the 3 dragons among my photos) will save you the trouble to look for such a dangerous creature... HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Wish you all the best!LET THE WONDERFUL NOISE OF THE SEA ALWAYS SOUNDS IN YOUR EARS! (a greeting of my water dragons' hunters).
