More learning, more experiences, I am a sponge (except with a central nervous system).
Most of my CS experience has been based in Sofia, Bulgaria, the best CS community. I've since moved to Rochester, NY (2012) to complete a PhD in neuroscience.
Let's talk about it in person! I feel like I've already lived a dozen lives. I am learning to take the best from all of them.
CS is a huge part of my life, hosting more than 100 members in Sofia and surfing quite a lot, too.
I'm a researcher and focus on neuro-physiology in the frame of perception and cognition. I'm a thinker but at the same time believe that actions are more important than thoughts so I admire what people *do*, not what they think. Woolgathering is a rarity for me.
Some of my older work
I like traveling around Bulgaria and taking photographs.
Here is a map of the towns and villages I've shot.
Since 2012 I've taken a break from CS and in that time, it has changed a lot. But it was a very big part of my days and has left uncountable memories.
Know where your target is.
Then aim unflinchingly.

I'm not as active as I used to be, primarily because I am dedicated to my studies. I do, however, still enjoy hosting and surfing. I planned a lot of events in Europe when I lived there.

Music, Movies, and Books
Most read and re-read books:
Well, actually I mostly read journal articles. But this is a secret. Currently reading a book on Neurology and Philosophy and a book about Bulgarian History. Also, I've read and enjoyed most of Khalil Gibran's works.
Most watched movies:
I don't watch many movies. But I'd like to. :)
Hmmm... I'm a big collector of music...
Tough to choose. I don't like music that is not made my musical instruments and musicians who play them. Bring me some music from your country!!

If an Atom were enlarged to the size of a football stadium the nucleus would only be the size of a pea while the first electron cloud would circle the stadium. This means that more than 99% of an atom is empty space. It's nothing. Everything is made up of atoms. So everything is more than 99% nothing. That's right folks, everything is mostly nothing (or at least non-physical). So what's the big deal in allowing yourself to talk about "mind" being a non-physical part of the brain? Are not the holes in swiss cheese separate but connected to the cheese itself? Chew on that! (the cheese).
