biography
Reading, music, art, philosophy, science, Nature, and Chinese food are pretty much my favorite things.










"If you need something to worship, then worship life — all life, every last crawling bit of it! We're all in this beauty together!"
-Paul Muad'Dib Atreides, Dune Messiah

"There are problems in this universe for which there are no answers. Nothing. Nothing can be done.
-Paul Muad'dib, Dune Messiah

"Atrocity is recognized as such by victim and predator alike, by all who learn about it at whatever remove. Atrocity has no excuses, no mitigating argument. Atrocity never balances or rectifies the past. Atrocity merely arms the future for more atrocity. It is self-perpetuating upon itself — a barbarous form of incest. Whoever commits atrocity also commits those future atrocities thus bred."
-The Apocrypha of Muad'Dib

"This is the fallacy of power: ultimately it is effective only in an absolute, a limited universe. But the basic lesson of our relativistic universe is that things change. Any power must always meet a greater power."
-The Preacher at Arakeen

"To stay awake all night adds another day to your life."
-Stilgar, Children of Dune

"We've lost something vital, I tell you. When we lost it, we lost the ability to make good decisions. We fall upon decisions these days the way we fall upon an enemy — or wait and wait, which is a form of giving up, and we allow the decisions of others to move us. Have we forgotten that we were the ones who set this current flowing?"
-Irulan to Alia, Children of Dune

"Paradox is a pointer telling you to look beyond it. If paradoxes bother you, that betrays your deep desire for absolutes. The relativist treats a paradox merely as interesting, perhaps amusing or even, dreadful thought, educational."
-Leto, God Emperor of Dune

"My own mind is my own Church."
-Thomas Paine

"Faith is the great cop-out, the great excuse to evade the need to think and evaluate evidence. Faith is belief in spite of, even perhaps because of, the lack of evidence."
-Richard Dawkins

"For the first half of geological time our ancestors were bacteria. Most creatures still are bacteria, and each one of our trillions of cells is a colony of bacteria."
-Richard Dawkins

"God exists, if only in the form of a meme with high survival value, or infective power, in the environment provided by human culture."
-Richard Dawkins

"I am against religion because it teaches us to be satisfied with not understanding the world."
-Richard Dawkins

"We are all atheists about most of the gods that societies have ever believed in. Some of us just go one god further."
-Richard Dawkins

"For me, it is far better to grasp the Universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring."
-Carl Sagan

"For small creatures such as we the vastness is bearable only through love."
-Carl Sagan

"Our species needs, and deserves, a citizenry with minds wide awake and a basic understanding of how the world works."
-Carl Sagan

"Who are we? We find that we live on an insignificant planet of a humdrum star lost in a galaxy tucked away in some forgotten corner of a universe in which there are far more galaxies than people."
-Carl Sagan

"We live in a society exquisitely dependent on science and technology, in which hardly anyone knows anything about science and technology."
-Carl Sagan

"The universe is not required to be in perfect harmony with human ambition."
-Carl Sagan

"The question isn't who is going to let me; it's who is going to stop me."
Ayn Rand

"Man's unique reward, however, is that while animals survive by adjusting themselves to their background, man survives by adjusting his background to himself."
-Ayn Rand

"Reason is not automatic. Those who deny it cannot be conquered by it. Do not count on them. Leave them alone."
-Ayn Rand

"The man who lets a leader prescribe his course is a wreck being towed to the scrap heap."
-Ayn Rand

"If any civilization is to survive, it is the morality of altruism that men have to reject."
-Ayn Rand

"I don't build in order to have clients. I have clients in order to build."
-Ayn Rand

"He hoped and prayed that there wasn't an afterlife. Then he realized there was a contradiction involved here and merely hoped that there wasn't an afterlife."
-Douglas Adams

"Human beings, who are almost unique in having the ability to learn from the experience of others, are also remarkable for their apparent disinclination to do so."
-Douglas Adams

"In the beginning the Universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move."
-Douglas Adams

"Isn't it enough to see that a garden is beautiful without having to believe that there are fairies at the bottom of it too?"
-Douglas Adams

"Space is big. You just won't believe how vastly, hugely, mind-bogglingly big it is. I mean, you may think it's a long way down the road to the drug store, but that's just peanuts to space."
-Douglas Adams

"There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable.There is another theory which states that this has already happened."
-Douglas Adams

"Time is an illusion. Lunchtime doubly so."
-Douglas Adams

"Creationists make it sound as though a 'theory' is something you dreamt up after being drunk all night."
-Isaac Asimov

"Dalton's records, carefully preserved for a century, were destroyed during the World War II bombing of Manchester. It is not only the living who are killed in war."
-Isaac Asimov

"Humanity has the stars in its future, and that future is too important to be lost under the burden of juvenile folly and ignorant superstition."
-Isaac Asimov

"If knowledge can create problems, it is not through ignorance that we can solve them."
-Isaac Asimov

"It is change, continuing change, inevitable change, that is the dominant factor in society today. No sensible decision can be made any longer without taking into account not only the world as it is, but the world as it will be."
-Isaac Asimov
