Long story short

This is a living collection of ramblings, sketches, thought experiments, and ideas about the Fabric of the Universe.

Undated sketch about reality and observation - Rome, Italy (Circa 1999)

Do not take this too seriously! Here you'll find plenty of stuff that is absurd, meaningless, or just plain wrong.

Yet, I like to go down the unbeaten path and see where it gets me!

Having a brain entails the moral obligation to explore and entertain even the most absurd ideas.

If you have an idea, no matter how absurd, meaningless, or wrong it may sound, it will find, by definition, a point in time when it is true! And that point, that single point, is truly amazing!

Long story... long

Many years ago, between February 4th, 1999 and January 13th, 2003 I started filling pages over pages of ideas and thought experiments about the brain, the mind, and life in general.

I remember that as a pleasant and intellectually stimulating time.

Sitting at my desk in company of my own mind, jotting down ideas. Sketching thoughts and rambling about the nature of "reality". How does the brain comprehend all of that, despite being itself included in "reality"?

Reality

But then, the "REAL" reality kicked in: I was in the middle of my PhD, I needed a more pragmatic approach than entertaining these mind-bending thoughts.

Somehow, some people (including myself) managed to convince me that I was wasting time. All that really "mattered" was running experiments and publishing results! ... And so I did: I got my PhD and a decent record of publications.

But the truth is that I got lost... I lost contact with that part of me that really cared about what he was doing: thinking, inventing, discovering the Fabric of the Universe.

This website collects some of those thoughts and adds some more new ideas. After all, 20 years have elapsed since I first put the pen on the paper to rumble about "Things". I've changed quite a bit since then .. or maybe not :-)
