I like to capture moments - just moments to share because it makes me feel something. Moments are fleeting, time passes quickly before your eyes and places and people are changing. Moments are everywhere. There are moments that can transport you to a different time and place. May this site inspire all of you towards greatness. We've only got one life. Never submit to ideologies, gods, prophets or other hypocrites. The time is running. There's so much information out there, so you feel that you're researching (sure, very time consuming) but not actually absorbing? So here are some recommendations for reading:

"The Universe Next Door", by New Scientist, 

"We Have No Idea: A Guide to the Unknown Universe", by Jorge Cham & Daniel Whiteson

"Know This: Today's Most Interesting and Important Scientific Ideas, Discoveries, and Developments", by John Brockman

"What If?" by Randall Patrick Munroe

"The Origin of (almost) Everything", by New Scientist

"Unweaving the Rainbow: Science, Delusion and the Appetite for Wonder", by Richard Dawkins

Make a contribution to society, nature and humanity. So use the time wisely. Look back and laugh.

“What we call the present is given shape by an accumulation of the past.” (by Haruki Murakami, 1Q84) “Even if we could turn back, we’d probably never end up back where we started.” (by Haruki Murakami, 1Q84)

“Listen, every object’s in flux… they don’t stay in one form or another or in one place forever.” (by Haruki Murakami, Kafka on the Shore)

“Ultimately, though, it's living people that frighten me the most. It's always seemed to me that nothing could be scarier than a person, because as dreadful places can be, they're still just places; and no matter how awful ghosts might seem, they're just dead people. I always thought that the most terrifying things anyone could ever think up were the things living people came up with.” (by Banana Yoshimoto, Hardboiled & Hard Luck)

“Time expands and contracts. When it expands, it’s like pitch: it folds people in its arms and holds them forever in its embrace. It doesn’t let us go so easily. Sometimes you go back again to the place you’ve just come from, stop and close your eyes, and realize that not a second has passed, and time just leaves you there, stranded, in the darkness.” (by Banana Yoshimoto, Hardboiled & Hard Luck)

“Every one of us is losing something precious to us. Lost opportunities, lost possibilities, feelings we can never get back again. That’s part of what it means to be alive.” (by Haruki Murakami, Kafka on the Shore)

“As we go through life we gradually discover who we are, but the more we discover, the more we lose ourselves.”  (by Haruki Murakami, Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage)

“But the absence of fighting or hatred or desire also means the opposites do not exist either. No joy, no communion, no love. Only where there is disillusionment and depression and sorrow does happiness arise; without the despair of loss, there is no hope.” (by Haruki Murakami, Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World)

I’m free, I think. I shut my eyes and think hard and deep about how free I am, but I can’t really understand what it means. All I know is I’m totally alone. All alone in an unfamiliar place, like some solitary explorer who’s lost his compass and his map. Is this what it means to be free? I don’t know, and I give up thinking about it. (by Haruki Murakami, Kafka on the Shore)
