Philosophical Queries of a Nerd: Dreams, Robots, and Other Mysteries of the Mind
Too Long; Didn't ReadMany may think that nerds and geeks have a singular focus. They may believe that our intellectual prowess can only be contained within one topic of our interest. While this may be true sometimes, it doesn’t mean our thoughts always align with these interests. Oftentimes, like most people, our minds wander. We wonder what we would do in certain situations, what would happen if the world were a certain way, and ask ourselves questions that probably have no concrete answers (yet).
In the distant future, I wouldn’t be surprised if we were counted among the philosophers of our time. In any case, we’re always asking questions. If not to others, then to ourselves.
Below are some of the questions I’ve pondered, along with my thoughts on them. I hope they spark some imagination in your own mind.
