    What Makes Us Tick?

    I've always wanted to know.  When I was 17 I worked as an Incinerator Operator.  I walked around a big complex of buildings emptying bins into bigger bins, then into bigger bins until finally I'd have to drag a huge trolley of it across the site to the incinerator.  It was...

    It's love. I can only tell

    that I would be lost without them. It's not because I understand every single subject, but I'm very much happy to be confused by reading both topic. Currently I'm reading (trying) Consciousness (A very short introduction) by Susan Blackmore.
