23-year-old tall brown-haired guy. Was in Applied Physics at Cornell for three years, but dropped out ("got a leave of absence") for "psychological reasons," whatever those are. I dunno; I just stopped having fun with the physics somewhere in there. I'm very interested in the philosophy that underlies physics; in particular, in different conceptions of time. Time is difficult because, if you're honest with yourself, you'll notice that you only perceive time as a consequence of your perceptions of change and memory -- but you can only conceptualize change and memory with respect to a certain theory of time. So, the way you perceive is opposite from the way you conceptualize.

I think that's, frankly, bizarre; and it makes it hard to explain ideas about time to other people.
