Welcome to Brainstorm!

Aloha and welcome,

In this tiny space of the web called Brainstorm, you will find articles on general topics like science, math, fantasy, you know, the average brainiac stuff. And yes, I said aloha. I was born and raised in Hawaii, I have a Filipino father and Hawaiian-Chinese mother. I’m local to da max (with Kaima`aina discount and everyting bu!). But anyway, these topics are what I seriously like to think about.

You can use the overhead menu to browse the categories or the side menu to quickly get to recent posts or comments. Feel free to comment on posts. I usually write something at least once every two weeks, maybe more or less (I do get busy though, so that might go down, especially since I’m still a college student) but never below once a month. If there are spelling mistakes or grammar mistakes, feel free to send me an email at atutorinhawaii@gmail.com.

I hope you find the articles interesting and insightful. There are serious posts, more relaxed posts, but all posts are just something to think about.

The Matter of Thought

“Cogito ergo sum.” (Latin meaning ‘I think therefore I am’) -Rene Descartes

Have you ever wondered what thoughts are?

nd things like that. Continue reading
