Introduction from a Liberal Arts Type

  1. Feb 22, 2015 #1
    Good morning,

    My name is sbogucki (Steve B). I am a 31 year old dude with a blossoming interest in conceptual physics.

    My undergraduate degree is in religious studies and international studies. However, I work in an aviation engineering office and from that experience, have been exposed to some STEM principles that I have found fascinating. I recently picked up a layman's physics anthology sort of book, and now I find myself considering the scientific basis for all things in every day life. I am obsessive by nature, (i.e., the type who doesn't just run, but has to be a competitive, victorious runner) and I want to tackle this nascent passion with the same vigor.

    I feel like I have an aptitude for the basic concepts. It's almost as if I sense that there is little I am simply incapable of understanding, just a lot that I simply do not know yet. At least as far as concepts go. I am wholly unsure of my mathematic capabilities, mostly because I have never rigorously tested them.

    I've become convinced that the many many people with greater science knowledge than me are in on some secret. I want in on this esoteric world knowledge!

    Anyway, thanks for this resource. I look forward to be a long time follower. Certainly via reading more than posting.

    Thanks again.

    Psst. The Moon. It's not made of cheese. Don't tell anyone.
    If you stay around long enough, you may learn exactly what kind of cheese. :wink:

    I feel a step closer to initiation into the community already! :)
