I will be reading

Godel Escher Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid

Probably for several months

Other philosophical books on my reading list. The Grand Design by S Hawking and Leonard Mlodinow and an apologist reply to this book."God and Stephen Hawking" by John Lennox; Decoding Reality by Vlatko Vedral and the Koran. So for future votes any of the above I would be interested in joining in discussions although I am sure some of these have alredy been discussed.

I've all Nietzsches books and understand none of them. He is a puzzle and one liners just don't make philosophy to me. I'm not a philosopher, I think of myself as an imagineer. All thought comes first from imagining something better than what we have. Rational thought and logic step in and lay out the foundation (this is the part I missed when I slept in class)
