When we are unable to look upon the world without considering a particular set of ideas we may call that view a "religion." In this sense, science is a religion.
In our experience "Intension," what Benjamin Peirce (1809-1880) would have called "our Will," has a direct effect on our motion. This idea led the Harvard astronomer and mathematician (in 1855) to say that the base of all force is "spiritual." It would be a mistake to dismiss this idea out of hand because it is indeed the case that our sense and thoughts change how we move, they affect our motion.
My research focuses on the foundations of logic and apprehension at the intersection of computation and biophysics. I am a mathematician, a biophysical theorist, a computational scientist and engineer and, more recently, I have become a cosmologist.
It is my goal to place biophysics, including an account of sensation and mind, in the physical sciences.
I treat logic and epistemology as a natural science, rejecting logicism, with the goal of building the bridge between pure mathematics and the physical sciences. To my surprise, this work now extends into theoretical physics, astrophysics, and cosmology more generally.
I am also an accomplished engineer and hacker, and I will ultimately return to building machines.
