Hello, I'm interested in political philosophy. However, I very strongly respect rationality and the scientific method, and want my impact on the world to be maximizing its application to society in order to optimize our civilization. In order to do this, I am completing a bioengineering undergrad. Unfortunately, quite a lot is going on in the world, and it's very easy to procrastinate by datamining various extremist sites. My gpa suffers for this. I know I need a logical path to redirect myself when procrasinating, but I am trying to record my philosophy's applications in a cohesive structure at the same time. For instance, I am currently studying sound waves in physics, but my mind constantly wanders to comparing the core assumptions of various political extremes in the US from a neuropsychological perspective. Arguments I have: - I need to learn to think rationally while my brain is still maleable - I am limited by time when it comes to science- getting a good GPA However, something is missing, and having just started a new semester, the fact that I wander so easily is quite terrifying. How can I focus?
