I’m drawn towards philosophical questions about the nature of life and its relationship to the physical world. Yet while it is clear to me that empiricism and the scientific method are much more powerful tools than pure philosophy for the exploration of such questions, I continue to believe that the most luminary scientists are those who are also philosophers at heart. They challenge paradigms, abhor dogma, and are habitually aware and skeptical of the assumptions that form the basis of their beliefs.
Also, I have a cat - his name is Erwin Schrodinger.
