The Mind & ToE
See these sections:
Aspergers / Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD): my thoughts on the condition, which I have.
My Theory of Everything (ToE): linking my thoughts about the science of our minds (including free-will, emotions, belief in love & God / 'The Force') to magnetism, quantum physics, gravity, space & time etc.
"Everlasting life in heaven": a further article, which - like my "ToE" - is also about spreading love through humanity, also with vague links to religion, but - despite the title - with a more realistic & practical conclusion for where we should focus our loving efforts (the answer being - collectively on our children).
Is she/he "the one"? - some dodgy statistics on the chances of finding your one, ideal partner in a world of 7.7 billion people.
and, in due course:
Love Actually: my story (when I eventually write it) of strange "coincidences" (or otherwise?) that led to quite a bit of what I've written on this site.
For more stuff on the mind, here's a few things I've found interesting or useful:
- I highly recommend this course to anyone / everyone (if you can manage to overlook the American buzzwords & marketing), except probably those with "Dark Triad"/"Cluster B" personality disorders (for which there needs to be screening).
Actually they ought to do it in all high schools. It applies fairly standard psychology in an intense environment that helps you challenge your limiting self-beliefs.
You will learn many things, but not least how to truly love others, starting with yourself. And they can help you to free your life from the constraints & misguided "lessons" of the past, or goals that are forever in the future, and instead decide what sort of person you want to BE, so you can then simply start being that authentic person, living a life of passion and integrity.
Also based on similar principles, try the book, Reinventing Your Life about "lifetraps" & "schemas".
The power of belief
I saw a TV program about this on Netflix (on 8 July 2016), and it turns out to be very similar to my ToE!
So there you go - without being religious or naturally inclined to the mystic, through logical thinking, science & imagination I seem to have independently reached broadly the same conclusions as every other religion and new age philosophy
- so I must be right!
Apparently The Secret is based on this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Master_Key_System
Intimate relationships & love

- not sure about how they achieve the stated objectives, but highly recommended at least for relaxing & refreshing you with energy (they ought to do this &/or mindfulness or similar in all schools).
http://passionatemarriage.com/ - difficult reading but insightful use of sex as a window on wider relationship issues & marital conflict as a driver of personal growth.
Yes, I know it's a short reading list above - I don't read many books as my mind wanders off too much (maybe because of my aphantasia).
Anyway, you should beware of too much reading (TV of the early 20th Century):
Here's some more Einstein quotes, much of them in common with my view on life:
Talking of change, attached here for your amusement (and my embarrassment) is something of a contrast on my more recent writings on God - my student magazine rant showing "Blatant Contempt for God" (& hypocritical elements of the church).
But I still think the messages of how to live a good life are more important than the messenger / "Him", and it turns out I actually share the religions of past teachers:
