Mouse is now hovering over space
landscape. I hope it doesn't die of asphyxiation!

13.7 billion years ago, an ear-shatteringly gargantuan bang forced an entire universe into being. After a series of complex reactions, we find ourselves contemplating this occurrence on a small blue-green body, orbiting a giant nuclear furnace about 150 million kilometres away. How did this happen? Why do we find ourselves in such an arguably odd situation?

Hello. I am the two-hundred and thirty-four thousand six-hundred and third researcher1. I am interested in most of science and science fiction, mathematics, humour, lexicology, lexicography, thermodynamics, computing [quantum and classical], neurobiology and in cogitating over mysterious aspects of philosophy, astrophysics and nuclear physics, and where these topics collide; in particular, quantum theory (did you know, for example, that it is within the laws of physics for things to be in two places at once?)

I also enjoy paradoxes, especially to do with time travel, infinity or recursiveness. They really are rather fun. I highly recommend the work of Clifford Pickover (go to www.pickover.com for more information) for its mind-bending power.

As to details about my other personal attributes, I come from the Milky Way galaxy, I live in a home, I am younger than four-hundred and fifty-three and my ancestors were apes. I have never played a banjo, and I use an optical mouse. There could be a mirror version of me... see Mirror Matter for more details...
