Science is just interesting, how could it not be interesting? Science deals with the nature of reality although according to science, reality itself may be suspect. This is even more fascinating, realizing that my reality is dependent upon my perceptions, as translated from my past experiences and genetic inheritance. My favorite classes were in various areas of scientific study; biology, anatomy, geology, astronomy, the human body, the current trend in Regenerative Medicine and other developments that will change how medicine is practiced.
To meet like minded people who accept the scientific method over blind faith, and to keep up to date in the scientific areas in a group where rational discussion is possible. I subscribe to Science News, Scientific American Mind, National Geographic, and watch specials on the TV. I couldn't put 'The Holographic Universe' down; now there are so many books out on the rather trendy subject of brain plasticity, with maybe too many 'neuro-scientists' jumping on that bandwagon. Still, I just read an article that reviewed a number of these books in the New Yorker, and the author felt that none of the current theories explain what consciousness is and how our brains can produce a 'memory' from a bunch of neurons. What's next? Maybe Regenerative Medicine, as the conference held here in SD attracted numerous companies, the first two days cost $1000/day and dealt purely with business/financial matter, while the 3rd day cost $200 and presented the research part of the equation. Hmmmmmm
By accident when I received an email from the SciFi Meetup about the MARs movies.
This is super! I enjoy anything involved with science and the scientific method. I am looking for like minded people. To my surprise, others don't see eye to eye with me.
