I am looking forward to joining discussions here. My Backgroud is 2 years "applied physics", 5 years education for teaching in visual communication (art), 15 years experience as a database software developer. Now I am looking for a job as a software tester. Software Testing is similar to being a scientist to me (o: I am especially interested in understanding nature and communicate about it with others. (and less in showing my knowledge to others to become an authority (o: ) Last years I read about redshift (Doppler, SRT, ART, Hafele/Keating and Pound/Rebka) and the difference between mainstream theory and new ideas like those from H.C. Arp and P.LaViolette. Why are some new ideas too scary to be taken seriously ? When we are good scientists, it should not be a threat to us. My point is that too often people think dogmatic and reject new ideas before really trying to understand them. I try to be openminded towards the most crazy crackpots, because I think we need to understand more of nature than we do now. I can become enthousiastic when I am doing the dishes and see a galaxy-shape appear in a stirred pan with water and some bean-residue. It is a serious observation to me, like the Hubble deep space pictures or CERN data.
