I love browsing this site :D. I’ll mostly be posting videos of anything interesting I find.

I’m just a high school student rigorously independently researching/studying Astronomy. However I’m planning to get a degree in Game Design/Digital Art first before I delve into Astronomy, as I’ve always loved concept art as well.

Aside from my other interests and hobbies, as a person, I like finding and making connections between many things. I’m very interested in Science, however, I also make room for other concepts such as spirituality and I think the two are very connected. Instead of only trusting Science, I look to all different types of beliefs, information, and systems and realizing that they are also important and connected instead of seeing them as “just another silly belief.” I believe that maybe there is an underlying consciousness and connection in all of life, nature, and the Universe.

The most incomprehensible thing about the world is that it is comprehensible.

I think that this is not the time for philosophy and Science to be fixated, I want to help introduce new thoughts and ways of thinking if I can. We are always surprised by each new breakthrough we discover. People back then couldn’t even comprehend that the Earth revolved around the Sun, and that there were galaxies in the billions instead of our galaxy being perceived as the whole Universe. Now we all know these things we once couldn’t accept or understand to be a common truth. What new things will we find out once we open our minds in ways we haven’t before?

I spend a lot of my time independently researching all I can about all branches of Astronomy and major general Science concepts. It is something I have always been passionate about. I consider this to be my main interest. I don’t usually share openly about my findings and thoughts in this, but if you ask I wouldn’t mind ^_^.
