Did you even read my post or are your reading skills just bad? You didn't answer my questions. But whatever. Storytime.
When I say I read Plato, Kant and Heidegger I actually read them, not just saying that to mock you. I didn't give a fuck about "STEM" until I turned 20 or 21. I speak German and Schooln fluently and learned Latin for 9 years and English for 7 years (yes, I learned English as my 4th language). I majored in English and had to read and write about Macbeth, it was rather boring because the old Greeks already wrote about that son-kills-father-and-fucks-mother type of stuff, the shit that got Jung and Freud so hard. Some people of whom I have works on the bookshelf beside my desk: Nietzsche, Thoreau, Rosseau, Kierkegaard, Tolstoi, Sophokles, Aristoteles, Wittgenstein, Foucault, Derrida, Heisenberg, Russell, Sartre, Camus, Benjamin, Kripke, Rilke, Adorno, Benn, Schopenhauer, Goethe. This is a small selection, just so you get the gist. But wait, one funny thing: Asimov. Apart from his great fiction, I got 'Chronology of the World' by him. From wikipedia: "Asimov's Chronology of the World is a 1991 book by Isaac Asimov, in which the author explains in chronological order important events that happened from the Big Bang until the end of World War II. Each chapter covers a certain time period. The chapter is then broken down into headings for each important empire or country of the time and describes the events that happened there during that chapter's time period."
Motherfucker do you even know what the fuck you started when you made your post? What the fuck you got yourself into when you came to this board and started to type away? I have the history of the world on my desk. At my fingertips. And you are lecturing me about "YoU DoNT KNoW hiStOry?!?". FUCK. YOU.
Another funny thing: I actually started studying philosphy. I was bored out of my mind, wrote papers about Derrida and Foucault in my first semester, getting top grades, but BORED. AS. FUCK. Everybody was stupid as fuck, wannabe-philosopher-hipster-hehehuhu while they mostly just read Harry Potter before starting to study. The only thing you could talk about with these people is what their favorite coffee shop is or where to find a good thrift shop. My interest for "STEM" was awakened by what philosophers had to say about nature and consciousness, because that was what I was interested in: TRUTH. But to actually understand that stuff, you have to study "STEM", not works of fiction or the ramblings of a philosopher. And I started to study CS with a minor in Mathematics. At one of the best institutes in the world, there is cutting edge research in robotics and AI here. Shit that actually boggles your mind when you start to get involved and get to talk to the people in charge. We got 2 Fields Medalists at the Math institute across the street. I'm a mere peasant to these gods, I'm nothing, I'm a piece of shit compared to them, you know, a 50 IQ retard, fucking illiterate. I'm willing to go on stage with any of your important philosophers still living, who do you got? Chomsky, Chalmers maybe? Dennett? Habermas? Judith FUCKING BUTLER? HAHA. FUCK. I will debate them on any topic of their choosing and I could hold my ground. Yes, I'm not going overboard, "HURDUR I WOULD DESTROY THEM", because I would not. But I could hold my ground, 100%. But I'm scared to even stand near a Fields Medalist. I AM SHITTING MY PANTS WHEN THESE GUYS WALK DOWN THE HALLWAY, SON.
I can talk about anything with my class mates, because they are FUCKING SMART. I'm an idiot compared to some of them. And we build cool stuff. For free. We contribute to the open source community, software that people actually use, millions of them. You too, OP, just in this moment, it is very likely that you use software which contains a couple of lines of code written by me. It's a pleasure, no need to thank me.
Fuck man, you are not even worth it. But between reading papers and solving problems, it is always good to take a time out and rant away. I would prefer meditation and LSD with weeklong solo retreats in nature, but there is no time for that in everyday life, obviously. Summer is near though, I can't wait. In the meantime a good rant is always welcome. Thank you, sir, for the opportunity. Now I'm going back to work (I'm working on motion and path planning algorithms and their implementation, so robots and cars and all kinds of machines can learn to fucking move and be useful to all human beings, even you, OP).
