I am a fantasy and science fiction fan and writer who also has an interest in a range of various technologies and science fields. I've written technical articles for many years, and have degrees in computer science and nanotechnology. I also enjoy the fields of psychology, the paranormal, spirituality, nature, cooking, pets, fitness and art such as abstract painting and mosaics.

The Ultimate Doomsday Weapon

We often think about bombs that can destroy large parts of civilization or the planet itself as "doomsday weapons." But isn't the real nature of a doomsday weapon one that has a much broader reach, one that can wipe out not only our existence, but our place in time itself?

Large Scale Wind Mill Farms: A Viable Alternate Energy Strategy?

Wind mills, solar cells and other forms of alternate energy are often dismissed as viable energy sources because they aren't as cost effective as petroleum currently is. Research shows however that they could generate all the electrical energy we need if scaled up, and they would do so with endless efficiency. Shouldn't we get our energy from sources that will never run out?

Do You Have Enemies?

We are cultured by society to be nice, respectable, easy going human beings. We are told that teamwork and compromise, getting along with everyone, all the time, is the ideal. But does such behavior just rob you of your individuality and birthright to stand out in the world for the unique person that you are?

Are Humans The Ultimate Cure For Cosmic Entropy?

Entropy seems like an ultimate death sentence for the entire universe. No matter how intelligent or powerful a species may become, it seems impossible that it would possess the ability to reverse entropy. But we already do this on Earth, and perhaps simply an increase in the population would allow us to do it throughout space as well...

Are Actors Interdimensional Beings?

We find actors universally strange in their behavior and write it off to the inordinate amounts of attention they get and often wealth as well. But perhaps their peculiarities are attributable to something more fundamental, a different outlook on reality...

Do You Sleep On The Couch, On Purpose?

Does pursuing modern creature comforts tend to make people more risk averse? It seems that when you are young, the tendency to forgo such things as a nice, warm bed helps to motivate you to be more proactive in your life...

Are Stars Generally All the Same Size?

We generally accept the idea that space is big, really big. But along with that, human beings tend to assume that most of the stuff in space is relatively speaking, fairly close in size. Stars are stars, planets are planets, all about the same general size... Same for galaxies etc. How true is this?

Do You Buy Into the Grand Cosmic Egg Theory?

Scientists can be fairly inflexible when they get a good theory that seems to hold up to preliminary testing. The Big Bang Theory is an example of this. Initially it seemed promising, but increasing research has shown it has major issues that aren't easily accounted for.

How Man Learned to Walk

Do you believe that changes in climate are responsible for evolutionary development in man and other species? Many researchers believe such stimuli have led to developments in animals that they needed to survive. One zoologist even suggests that man may have learned to walk upright this way.

If You Can Dream It You Can Live It

Living our dreams usually centers around our careers and choice of work, because dreams cost a lot of money. How do you obtain that money, when you want to be a stunt devil but your boss keeps yelling at you to speed up your production of paper clips?

How Does Grocery Shopping Contribute to Being Overweight?

We love our modern grocery stores, with the thousands of different food choices to pick from. But is this availability of a diverse range of affordable foods a hidden factor that contributes to weight gain?

Everything is Going Too Fast

Do you ever get the sense that life has speeded up just a little too bit for your comfort, and that you'd be much better off, maybe, living in the Middle Ages, or the 1950s? Technology tends to feed the development of even better technology, that makes things faster and faster. But do we really have any illusions about keeping pace with the processing speed of the modern transistor?

Does Clutter Fill a Need, Or Stifle One?

The older we get and the more money we have the more stuff we tend to accumulate. That's a given. Yet most of this stuff often is related to social interests or hobbies we've long since abandoned. Why do we still keep the stuff, when we know we'll never go back to the pass times we bought it for?

Do You Travel Light?

When taking a trip, near or far, we are often admonished to "travel light." Few of us seem truly capable of doing this however. Why is that?

Do You Participate in Take Your Child to Work Day?

During Take Your Child To Work Day we are encouraged to show our offspring what we do for a living. But what if what you do for a living is a miserable job that you hate, and can't wait to get out of? How many people truly love their jobs? Should we be encouraging our kids to set their sights low on getting jobs they evenutally hate; "settling" for a mediocre existence?

What Do Ghosts, Alien Abductions and Jinni's Have In Common?

Differing human cultures in differing time periods of history have all had experiences with ethereal beings. These beings are given many names, and many different descriptions based on the mindset of the time period, but could they all be a common experience? Perhaps one type of creature has been visiting humanity over and over for centuries, with a sinister, hidden agenda...that we have yet to truly fathom

How Does Your Mind Function?

Are the talents and skills we hold dear just affectations of our upbringing? We are told we are each unique individuals from birth, but what if your uniqueness is largely an arbitrary byproduct of childhood conditioning? This would allow you to change your life dramatically, by changing how you think about it...

How Did The Division Between Plants and Animals Arise?

We often think plants are not much more than very basic, organic machines. They take in sunlight, grow and produce oxygen for all the animal life on the planet. But what if plants are the very reason that animals exist at all?

Do You Need Your Pain?

Pain is often underrated. The human mind seems to have a negative bias towards focusing on pain and bad situations that might happen, and it turns out this is an optimal way to grow.

Life Is Short, Live It Up.

We're always taught from childhood that we should be well rounded individuals. Our schools promote this with a general curriculum and with social events where we are encouraged to mix with many types of different people. Yet life seems to be most fulfilling when we instead focus on those things we like most and are best at, and leave all the rest to someone else...
