A Scientific Mind

I have never considered myself much of a scientific or mathematical person. I always did decent in these subjects by doing the work, turning it in, and getting by. I never did enjoy what I was learning much. I have always excelled in writing, reading, history and other right brained subjects. 

One of the things I loved most about being finished with college and formal education as a whole was that now I could spend my time learning exactly what it is I wanted to learn. In college, yes we do have some control over what we are learning, but even within our choices specific books and topics are chosen for us. Since finishing college I have been able to choose what subjects interested me and began learning for the sake of personal growth.

With that long introduction behind us I will now get to my point and literally it is a very small one. It has to do with the quantum world-the smallest amount of a form of energy. One evening when I was feeling a little blue I began a text conversation with a friend. Eventually our conversation led him to suggesting I watch a documentary called What the Bleep Do We Know.  The documentary introduced me to the world of quantum mechanics and additionally helped me grow my spiritual views at the same time. If you are wondering what the heck I could be talking about, watch the documentary online and see for yourself. As I made clear before I've never cared much for science, except possibly a bit of human physiology. This documentary awoke a passion for science in me and now I continue to seek out more documentaries to learn more. I'm not assuming I will comprehend certain concepts like a person dedicated to learning a subject like this, but what I take away most is a thirst for knowledge in things that never interested be before. By growing my knowledge base I just become a more stable human being and am living a more fulfilled life. Stay tuned, perhaps soon I'll even treat you to a mini quantum mechanics lesson. Boy won't this be hilarious.
