Logic, as opposed to arguments made on the basis of emotion, which often lead to worse, less-compassionate, outcomes.
I think our ultimate drive as a species is rooted in curiosity. It is almost as if curiosity is *our* purpose.
I got a masters degree from NYU in Music Technology, but I am most proud of my latest music album, which might be the first all-microtonal space rock opera. :) http://ziaspace.com/_music/drumnspace/
I'm finishing up a physics/philosophy book and would love the opportunity to do some presentations and discussions of different chapters. It has to do with chaos dynamics and fractal geometry vs. euclidean geometry. Human-made objects and our most common ways of thinking and organizing our selves, are all best described with squares, circles, smooth curves, static charts and graphs, etc., whereas everything else in "nature" is best described with chaos dynamics. I think humans are just in some awkward phase of evolution, where we are self aware (which goes hand in hand with intelligence and simplistic abstract thinking) but not yet able to grasp Nature's well-developed and robust methods. The different chapters that I apply these ideas to are about space, society, morality, consciousness, politics, longevity.. to name a few. :)
I'm an electronic musician, part time college teacher, vegetarian, and fiscally-conservative Libertarian. I'm also a single mom of a 10 month old, very curious baby.
