This is a blog about doubt and faith. In fact, it is a blog about faith in doubt.
Many different ideas are presented here, but whether I think they are right is irrelevant. I think they are worth discussing and that is why I present them.
You see, I am not writing this blog to unleash my opinions into the world. The world has enough opinions as it is. I am writing this blog to send thoughts into the world, thoughts that will maybe take root in people’s head and spread, expand and be modified. These thoughts are just possibilities, not definite truths. It is because they are just possibilities that they are worth spreading. This blog is about the joy of thinking and challenging your own views. It is not about what people should believe. It is not about how people should think or live their lives. It is a vehicle to create thought, not to determine it.
This doesn’t mean I won’t write as if I believed what I’m saying. Far from it. The only way to take an idea to its final consequences is to act as if you embraced it wholeheartedly. What it means is that I welcome and in fact foster dissent. Dissent is why I write.
That said, a lot of the ideas presented here are related to each other in such a way that understanding may be compromised without a foundation. The articles I link to below are this foundation: they represent my obsessions, which appear recurrently in most of my writings. The fact that they are my obsessions does not mean I believe them to be true: it just means I think about them often and that I would like it if other people did the same.
So, without further ado, here they are:
First, you need to know I believe in the Many-Worlds Interpretation of quantum mechanics.
I am also really obsessed with immortality. I have argued that:
3. You are already immortal, believe it or not. In order to argue that, I use the Many-Worlds Interpretation above.
The future is also a common trend in my blog. In this post, I argue that only nice things are going to happen. Some day I will write a post defending exactly the opposite.
Finally, if there is an article that defines this blog, it’s probably this one. It puts all my obsessions together, hoping to create a world-view. Just like the rest, it is far-fetched and probably wrong.
Just like the rest, it is probably an entertaining read.
