What is the Universe?

What is the Universe? Is the Universe everything there was, is and will be? Is the Universe everything we can observe and things we know exist but haven't been observed yet?

What Chair?

The other day, I ran across this little story online. So in the spirit of a little philosophy, I thought I’d share it with you: An eccentric philosophy professor gave a one question final exam after a semester dealing with a broad array of topics. The class was already seated and ready to go when the professor picked up his chair, plopped [...]

Commencement speeches

Regrets of the dying

Floating around on the internet one night, I found a list of the biggest regrets of the dying, made by a palliative care nurse called Bronnie Ware. Searching for and following the connections of this interesting subject, I also stumbled upon some similar artwork, made by Alice Lee. In her Tumblr-blog, she posted some desktop wallpapers, inspired by Paul Grahams’ inversions of the 5 regrets, yielding a list of 5 commands:  Don’t ignore your dreams; [...]
