Deschele Schilder

When she returned to her bomb-struck house, my granny sighed: "Shhhit... I just cleaned the stairs"

I like Nature and it makes me sad to see Her disappear.

Hey! don't drink from that bottle! It contains a poisonous drink...costs 60 bucks...

I like the sciences and art (all forms of it, including non-western art which has much more meaning; this art represents a world-view, just as the sciences do, so you can call the sciences an art; this is made clear by Paul Feyerabend in his little book "Wissenschaft als Kunst").

I like the writings of Paul Feyerabend. As another philosopher of the sciences (Herr Feyerabend didn't like this qualification, as he didn't like being put in any category) once said:

I know no other person who has written one book ("Against Method") in three different editions with different content.

His most cited and most misinterpreted one-liner: "Anything goes".

People like Richard Dawkins have written many books, with many different covers. But with the same content, over and over again.

I'm particularly interested in physics, which strangely enough in the Netherlands is called "Natuurkunde"="knowledge of Nature", while everywhere else it's called something like it's called in English. But over here you can call it "fysica" too. Just so, mathematics is called "wiskunde"="knowledge of erasing". And just like "fysica" and "wiskunde" in Dutch there is the strange word "magnetron" which stands for "microwave oven".

I like every field. From the small(est) to the big(est). From classical to modern. I'm very interested in, even a fan, of the Rishon Model.

I think everybody should see this tear-jerking documentary. Or this one. Or this beautiful movie. Or this one.

Why so much tax money is spent on the biggest constructions to find the smallest?

Longfellow:

If thou art worn and hard beset
By troubles that thou wouldst forget
If thou wouldst read a lesson that would keep
Thy heart from fainting and thy soul from sleep

Go to the woods and hills
No tears
Can dim the sweet look
That Nature wears

What I also know, is that if the economical train ain't slowed down, and if productivity isn't made to be constant, products aren't made to be recyclable, and energy to produce goods doesn't come from clean sources and made transportable by hydrogen, Nature will cease. Birds will fall out of the sky one day. Seas will rise. Thunder and lighting will be omnipresent. I will be somewhere underground, together with my love.
