Failure of Science: Circle’s worth of Blame

So they say that the world is ending and that we are to blame. Majority of the scientists have been telling the world of the perils in climate change yet we often turn a blind eye on the data we've been given. Who do you think should we point fingers at? Perhaps you as a... Continue Reading →

Starting Fresh

For over a year, I went on a hiatus for two reasons - finishing my Ph.D. thesis, and facing my demons. Some of us know that doing a doctorate is the real deal. It feels as though you're a monk who deserved to be whipped several times because penitence will ever be granted according to... Continue Reading →

Finding strength from my passion

It has been three days since I got eliminated from the semi-final round of Famelab Torino. It was a good fight even if it was something that I was still unfamiliar with.

In my opinion, they sometimes force us to stay down on our knees and let the cycles continue. All throughout history, we have abolished some actions, and created new... Continue Reading →

Why I Travel

I have never felt so alive in my entire life had I not begin to travel by myself or a few people. Travelling is not really an excuse to escape the normal life. It is in travelling that I completely immerse myself to new places and be able to construct a better reflection of myself... Continue Reading →

Dreaming yet not Listening

Human progress has been a misconstrued project developed by our supposed perfect ideologies. We have always tried to simplify our lives in many ways. They range from the solving the smallest problems to managing gigantic feats. Our human curiosity has enabled us to expand our horizons from the nanoscopic to the largest scale we can...
