How did you become interested in philosophy?

I have taken three courses in philosophy in college, and I recently listened to some lectures on philosophy of the mind.

Can you summarize your philosophical outlook in 50 words or less?

I found that much of what philosophers have said in the past is equivalent to the musings of an adolescent. I don't have a clear philosophy, but whatever it is, people don't want to hear about it. Essentially, I think that we are all in an accidental universe that is going to do some pretty uncontrollable things.

What topics interest you the most?

Consciousness and the courage to live with no purpose.

Introduction

I have a B.S. in psychology and an M.S. in computer science. I am interested in the nature of consciousness and the possibility that machines may become conscious.
