Please, read the following questions and feel free about answering them or skipping them.

What is your main interest about knowing things?

I'm interested in the sciences and mathematics. I don't know why I have such a strong curiosity in understanding the physical world, it's just how I am.

Would you prefer to email me confidentially about any ideas for discussion so I can ask those questions without others knowing about you?

No. I'm happy to raise ideas and ask questions in public. Public discussion and the opportunity for ideas to be shared is key to creating understanding.

What is your understanding about philosophy in general? Please, provide an explanation of what it means to you, no need to look it up in the dictionary, understanding is personal and what you think is very valuable.

Philosophy is thinking about thinking. It pursuit of truth about existence through logical examination of evidence and causality. Of course, existence itself also needs logical examination. Philosophy builds upon itself by adding layers of logical argument using axiomatic precepts.

Is there anything that you would prefer not to discuss in public because of your principles, religion or simply not feeling like talking in public?

No, none. I'm pretty open to any idea, thought or conclusion. I'm also not backward in coming forward if I disagree with, or can't understand, something.

Introduction

I am a student of Tibor Molnar's Philosophy for Science lectures and very much enjoying them. I have a Science degree ex Syd Uni and currently work as a Manager in the IT industry and have an interest in physics in general and QM in particular.

What Steven A. is saying about this Meetup Group

An excellent forum for like minded people to air their thoughts. I was impressed by the diversity of attendees and their obvious interest and knowledge of the subject matter. I wanted to make a comment but couldn't get an opening between the participants because some of them got too much air time.
