Moderator introduction:

Josh Ren

When I was a child, I was in New York, Xianyang, 15 years old. Graduated from Stony Brook University, doing actuarial work at a French insurance company. From 2007 to 2012, he was sent to Paris, Hong Kong and Jakarta. Returned to the US branch at the end of 12th. Like self-challenge, new things, documentaries, self-driving brigades. I have traveled to 31 countries. Personally think that Jordan's self-driving tour is the most interesting.

Share the bibliographic introduction:

Selfish gene

This is a detective reasoning of the meaning of life, a mathematical proof of fate and love, a literary deconstruction of mathematics and truth, a complete liberation and return, and forgetting all the awakening and happiness.

This sharing method is not a book, but combines some of the most representative viewpoints in the book with the dimensions of physics, history and literature, and explores a new perspective of understanding life, combing memories, gaining freedom, and finding happiness. The way to survive.

New conclusions are often inspired by dimensional mashups, and at the same time recommend: "The Strings of the Universe" B. Green (string theory), "A Brief History of Time", Hawking (Time Theory), "Global History" Dr. Rianos (Production of Productivity and Civilization), "Philosophy Research" Wittgenstein (Language Philosophy), and other related books, recommend the documentary "The Elegant Universe." There are Chinese e-books on the books online. It is not necessary to look at the original English. The documentary YouTube directly searches for Chinese, a total of three episodes.
