Hello, This isn't exactly related to the topic of this forum, but I guess I'll ask anyways: I'm currently doing my 2nd year of a 1st degree in math\physics\CS and I don't have time for anything (I'm also a full-time mom to a 4 month old, but that's a subject for a different thread). I enjoy the intellectual stimulation of science (when I don't feel pressured), and I think I have a pretty good potential for the kind of stuff I'm learning (although I'm having a hard time implementing it at this stage in life). The other reason I'm learning physics (and the rest) is that I hope to make some sort of contribution to the world (hopefully in climate physics or some sort of cleantech). However, I feel that because my head is so full of equations and deadlines all the time, I don't have time to pause and develop the more spiritual sides of my life. I barely have time to read books that you don't need a pencil and paper and table to get through. (Right now I'm reading Prigogine's "Order Out of Chaos" at nursing breaks and the universe will probably collapse into a wormhole before I finish it). I'm interested in a lot of other subjects in the humanities and social sciences, and like writing, music and yoga, but can't find time for those hobbies. So I was wondering: A) Is there a point in life (after finishing a Bsc\Masters\Phd\after coming home from work) when there's actually time for more than just physics and family? B) Has anyone else felt spiritually "parched" while studying physics or working in the field, and how have you solved it? Thanks!
