psychology... then physics.
"He who does not know how to put his will into things at least puts a meaning into them: that is, he believes there is a will in them already."

Metaphysics:
"The science.. which deals with the fundamental errors of mankind - but as if they were the fundamental truths."

I like psychology too, particularly Behaviorism, Cognativism and Social Psychology. I dabble in all those to improve my misdirection while performing magic.

Yeah... I'm more interested in the Physiological side of psych... and trying to guess the actual functions of the mechanisms by which we think...

anyone can be a Freud... lol 8)

Why psychology? I'd say cognitive neuroscience is far more interesting as it often contains psychology's explanations. I'm also a fan of astrophysics, physics, cosmology and physiology.

lol, Why?

I mean it cool at first with the nicely named topics, reasoning, object recognition and things then it's just looooong, the countless modals for neuron activity, the cortexes, the synonyms for different parts of the brain. It ends up like a really bad biology lesson and you know the worst abit about it you may be all wrong and simply wasting your time because the other pragmatic theory for deductive reasoning was right.

Each to her own I guess.

Love it. It's even better when one considers some of the theories in cosmology. The odds of it all leading to us having this very discussion...

I know exactly what you mean.
It adds to the overwhelming feeling of insignificance.

Astrology, scientology, and conspiracy theories.

Specifically, the study of why on earth people believe these crazy things.

In all seriousness, chem, phys, and psych are my favs.
"We are half-hearted creatures,
fooling about with drink and sex and
ambition when infinite joy is offered us,
like an ignorant child who wants to go on
making mud pies in a slum because he
cannot imagine what is meant by the offer
of a holiday at the sea. We are far too easily
pleased."—C.S. Lewis, "The Weight of Glory"

For me Quantum Physics because 2+2=5

In quantum physics everything is a probability you could say 100+100= 2 in quantum physics. And Electron exists for 1000th part of a second and then it comes to life then again it ceases to exist then again it exists. WOW

Anything is possible in atomic world

Understanding quantum physics FAIL. What you said is completely false.

I know this probably doesn't count, or maybe it does. I don't know, but I say anthropology. If that doesn't count I'll say probably astronomy and biology(genetics is the coolest).

I don't really understand it myself. Some matter effects other kinds of matter when there is no connection between said matter. Is that close?

i'd say psychology would interest me. anyone have a good place to start for me actually? from what i've looked at so far, physics is fairly interesting, but biology takes it.
