Hi, everyone and anyone who reads this. I want you to do something for me.

Ever since I've been a itty bitty human, I've been interested in all things science, so now that I can make conscious decision without the need of supervision, I choose to be a physicist.

I want you to tell me what subjects I should take to be one, what degrees I should have, what to do when I am, what no to do. If you happen to be a physicist yourself, what did you do? Do you have regrets? How would you do it over again?

Any input is greatly appreciated.

+Kurukx Human consciousness is occluded but programming isn't. You can get robots to do very human things today with display programs but nobody really thinks they're conscious. If you wanna do math on consciousness, you have to consider these uncertainties beyond just humans IMO.

I can see the difference between my left and right eye, when I looked at the small point of light while defocusing my eyes, and even the mini-rainbows! :)

Thank you for these consistently entertaining AND educational videos!
As I learned 50 years ago, only those who really UNDERSTAND can really teach.

Tagline
Minutephysics: cool physics and other sweet science. On Youtube.
Introduction
I'm constantly in awe at the world. Isn't it spectacular? I like physics (and science in general) because the rules of physics, chemistry and biology apply regardless of opinion polls of scientists or the public. The goal of science is to find out how the world (universe, nature, etc) works by careful observation. It doesn't matter at all if you believe in a theory or not - what matters is whether nature works that way. A lot of popular ideas (for example, "the earth is flat") turned out to be wrong, and a lot of uncomfortable ideas (like quantum mechanics and plate tectonics) turned out to be right. It's a dictatorship – nature decides how nature works, and you get no vote! But you get to decide which questions to ask - and that's what makes science fun.
