About Me


planning a software to change the world


I am calm, I like science. My main interest is to develop better explanations of the foundations of mathematics and physics. I also wrote on philosophy (metaphysics, science, religion, morality) and economics (with the concept of a very important software project for which I need programmers). So I like to share my ideas, which I can do by my web sites but I also wish to meet more people with common intellectual interests, in the form of either discussions or presentations (occasional teaching, in particular relativity theory - in the past I presented my economics ideas).


I dedicate myself to my projects to make the world better. This is something essential to me (I see so many things going wrong, this is somehow desperating).
As for metaphysical beliefs, I have spiritual concepts in theory, but scientism in practice: we should spread virtue in the hearts of computers (by new software) to let them distribute love to mankind (for example through optimised online dating) ;)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I sometimes used it for finding hosts but I more often just stay in hostels. But it is rather a chance to meet new people.


travelling, going to concerts, trying to meet new people ; maths, physics, economics, internet, philosophy; sometimes swimming (especially in aquaparks)
