Some of us believe that understanding can empower us all, bringing freedom ...and joy. The Internet can provide us the education to make that happen. The free public information available by the Internet, if appropriately organized and presented, can provide us core understanding of our world and ourselves, the ability to mold ourselves to find pleasure and true freedom of thought and action.
Ancient peoples had to wait to see a rainbow! Now the Internet can provide
on demand experiences, often virtual, not available to more primitive peoples, including long distance communication, a global perspective, pornography and much more. But we must ask if we are better for this? Just seeing a rainbow doesn't automatically bring understanding, wisdom, or the joy of experiencing beauty. For many people the thrill of an experience may be sufficient. But in the past a few did gain understanding, wisdom, or appreciation from their experiences. Modern culture is the product of those people. This site is devoted to assisting us all gain understanding, wisdom, joy, ...and other useful skills.
Physicists have been described as people who are interested in everything. But here the Physics emphasizes the most valuable core ideas. And the Chemistry presents that different perspective spawned from one of the ancient mystical arts. Along the way you should gather insights how our minds work. (For those details, wander over to the Biochemistry section to find more about our nervous system, senses, and mind.) Here we share the joy and beauty, understanding and freedom often experienced by scientists. Enjoy!
