"Does it not seem a vast waste of valuable human material that the pioneers of thought, those who by their genius dare to clear unknown paths in the arts and sciences and in government, should have to conform to the dictates of that non-creative, slow-moving mass, the majority? An appeal to the majority is a resort to force and not an appeal to intelligence; the majority is always ignorant, and by increasing the majority we multiply ignorance. The majority is incapable of initiative, its attitude being one of opposition toward everything that is new. If it had been left to the majority, the world would never have had the steamboat, the railroad, the telegraph, or any of the conveniences of modern life." ~ Charles Sprading
My name’s Michael Fielding, I’ve lived on the Earth through 22 orbits and recently graduated from the University of Texas with a BS in Computer Science. I’ve begun my big adventure, currently living in the Caribbean aboard my boat, Sovereignty. Right now I’m in San Juan, Puerto Rico, and I plan to stay for a few months to really explore the island and the culture.
I’m a full-time thinker and adventurer. I love experiencing new things and new places. I try to see the world as objectively as possible and enjoy writing out my ideas. I also love learning, my interests include economics, philosophy, physics, space, technology and more.
