it gives me great pleasure to critize the rationalists whose primary view on the world is based on science and the new_age culture whose primary view is based on pseudoscience. these criticisms i transform into literature. i also like to conduct interviews to theoretical physicists about their views on the workings of the universe. i find this interesting since one is trying to understand physical reality exactly at the limit of our knowledge.
