“Science knows no country, because knowledge belongs to humanity, and is the torch which illuminates the world.” – Louis Pasteur
Let me introduce myself. I am just an anonymous member of the internet. I am interested in science, technology, and making the world a better place. I am young, naive, and hopefully by the end of my journey I will be at least one step above that. I hope I can enlighten you and I hope you can enlighten me.
Let me start off with an analogy. The world is a supernova. It is exploding. It is constantly colliding, changing, evolving, expanding. It is the rage, the heat, the stress, the fire, the change, and the everything. Molecules are whizzing in the wind. Light is reflecting, refracting, and beaming past us and in us. Terabytes of data fly by us in the wires around us, the clouds above us, and the brains within us. Small electromagnetic fields in electronics, in people, and in everything are constantly changing. Our hearts are beating, our stomach is churning, our neurons are firing. And above us in the sky, million year old stars are forming, dying, and evolving.
Just stop for a second. Think about it. So much changing and evolving. We live in an infinite fractal, from the universe, to the Earth, to the nations, to we humans, to the organs, to the cells, to the molecules, to the unknown. We live in a world of infinite complexity and to understand all of the logic, chaos, and complexity would be the greatest privilege imaginable.
We could spend a million lifetimes understanding every inch our universe. We have over seven billion people, and yet we are so unproductive. Why are we not enlightening each other? Why are we not leaving the darkness and walking into the light? Why is war and politics and religion and everything else intermingling into hell? None of it has to. War and hell have no place in society as long as knowledge – religious knowledge, scientific knowledge, or just plain knowledge become what we strive for.
I want equality and brilliance in the world. Every day I explore more of the world we live in. From nature, to the inner workings of the electronics I use on a daily basis. From the galaxies in space to the billions of wonders everywhere in the world. Here I will post my reflections, my thoughts, and my ideas, and here, I hope you will reflect on my thoughts. And maybe then, someone out there can bring me into the light as I try to push others out of the darkness.
I am not Lux Ferous. I am another person fighting the war of words for knowledge, equality, and brilliance. I will speak little of religion, as I think Lux can cover it much better than I could. But I will speak about many things.
