About the author
Q. How do you justify your existence?
A. I do not think that there is an answer that I can provide. In order to justify my existence I must feel like I have accomplished something important, something that I would be glad to share with others. I have yet to do that.
Q. Then why do you write? Why bother to maintain a blog at all?
A. I do it for for my own good. Although I write publicly, I will not feel in any way deterred not to continue writing if there is no audience. Maintaining a blog is an experiment in writing, and it helps me collect and summarize whatever is of my interest.
Q. Why write about science?
A. Scientists and philosophers have a different understanding of criticism. They are not ashamed to speak their mind. I do not seek congratulations and undeserved praise for what I write. I evaluate and accept everything I get in response, unless what I get clearly does not make any sense.
Q. Who are you?
A. I will tell you only the basics. I was born in Moldova, in Eastern Europe, that by all accounts is the poorest country in Europe. I recently got my undergraduate diploma. I am 22. I spend most of my time reading. I am particularly fond of analytical philosophy, which provides me questions to answer. Psychology just helps me find those answers. That’s it. I will say no more.
