Welcome to “My Brain & I” (AKA my blog).

Why “My Brain and I”?

I read a thought-provoking book a while back entitled, “Solve For Happiness”. In it the author puts forth the idea that your thoughts are not really you. How’s that you ask? The logic is if you can be aware of your thoughts how can they be you? Well, where do your thoughts come from. I have come to the conclusion and subscribe to the idea that they come from my brain. Therefore, my brain cannot be me.  Of course, I’m very attached to my brain, I love him dearly and I see him as my best friend, my life-long companion.

You could be saying, “Rudy, you’re nuts.” (Like my wife does.) I hear you so allow me to explain. Have you ever been lying in bed and you want desperately to go to sleep but your brain says no. Your brain is insistent on keeping you awake with endless thoughts, ideas, worries, etc.? Exactly. I knew it. Point made. Proof positive your brain, like mine, is not you.

So I decided to run with that. I’m going to take my brain with me and explore the world. We’re going to share all that we learn as we dive into the subject of longevity (my brain and I are working hard to increase our health span), all things future and whatever else we decide to be curious about. We’re going to read books, watch films, shoot video interviews with smart, cool people and share with you all the interesting stuff we uncover. Feel free to think of us as kooky research scientists; we run experiments on ourselves using our time and money, find out what happens and is notable, and then provide you with the results in the form of text, images, audio and video.

Sound fun? Let’s do it.
