Hey all,

I'm from South Texas and stumbled across some posts from this site that really spoke to the aimless rambling of my mind. I enjoy learning about various religions from the well read and open minded. Mostly, I'm interested in metaphysics, astrophysics, and good books. There are some really interesting posts around here and I look forward to being a part of some great conversations.

I'll read just about anything when I have time. Lately though everything I've read has been about programming or math. Godel, Escher, Bach would be my favorite overall. 1984 was good. I thought it was a bit far fetched until I read Treblinka, by Steiner (reality was even worse). I used to read a lot of Sci-Fi when I was a kid. Mythology is also appealing to me.

I know the title is cheesy but Jim Holt's "why does the universe exist?" is actually pretty good. I read it this summer and it has alot of math in it. He calls it an "existential detective story" but what it really has is a bunch of great interviews with some of today's top brainiacs in the field of science and math about the physics and purpose of the how the universe works. There are several chapters on the ideas of great mathematicians that i struggled with truth be told ha ha. It sounds like you'd fare better. Jim Holt is the guy that writes science for the new york times ( he's readable). Anyways, if you do read it tell me what you think or maybe you can even help me out with the stuff i dont understand lol.

Great book. I enjoyed that one.

I am also a fan of Brian Greene's books as they are not as math-heavy and he explains physics that even a person with no grounding in the subject can comprehend.

Cool. I am a bit of a physics buff so I enjoy reading books on theoretical and quantum physics.

For just an overall literature pick I would say read House of Leaves which is possibly one of the most interesting and challenging books you can read. It is a total mind eff.

Sounds like you are a serious reader. I may have to work overtime to recommend something you have not gotten to already.

Ha ha. I am an avid reader it is true. But there really is so so much I haven't read so it won't be that hard. I wanted to be a writer when I was growing up so I really put great writers up on a pedestal. It seems like you have good taste!
