Greetings, This evening as I write this post, I can not be more humble of a person. I am writing because I am on a quest for more knowledge. Early in the middle of 2009 I stumbled across a documentary with a couple well known physicists that peaked an old, long-let-go dream. What started out as entertaining the thought of space and time quickly went into a rather odd perhaps obsessive direction. It has carried me a little over a year and a half to where I am now. When I was younger, I never did well in school because it took me too much time to learn something. If I had the time, I could learn something and learn it well. But, Time is and will always be a premium. So in customary fashion I fell through the cracks. After the past year and a half I have progressed from walking around with blindfolds on to what I think or atleast feel as having them partially removed. This feeling is intense and I must keep learning. My fundamental problem. I will never survive College unless I atleast obtain a strong working knowledge BEFORE I approach a class in any Given subject. I want to seek a degree in this field with the ultimate goal of being able to understand and hopefully develop a true intimate understanding of everything. I want to eventually be able to wrap my head around all the competing theories. I want to ultimately strive for a higher consciousness. I do not know quite where I am going with this post. All I know is I cannot stop thinking about physics and everything around us. It has poisoned my mind, but for the first time in my life I feel as though I have purpose and I must not give up on this. I guess so this post is not a complete waste. Given my clearly stated learning issues... What would you suggest I do to prep myself to be ready to enter a college learning environment and keep up learning what might be considered one of the hardest subjects? Thanks.
