It is always fascinating to see how one foundation of a person’s understanding, whether in science or any other field, can so drastically experience a paradigm shift with a new perspective. I personally began this paradigm shift through an article in the Journal of Neuroscience (Vol. 41, Issue 5) published on February 3rd, 2021.

A bond with a robot would be nonjudgmental, objective, and data-driven.

Generally speaking, most people do not know what another person’s needs are without dedicating extensive time and energy to figure them out.

Then, there are particular demographics of people such as the ageing population, people with Autism Spectrum Disorder, victims of disasters or trauma, and so many others. These people are particularly vulnerable without a solid social network to fall back on when situations are too complex or intense for one person to handle by themselves.

It seems that time is simply a thing clocks measure but for a biologist, its most profound value is in the observations of sequentially occurring events. On microscopic scales, the timing of events directs all of animal (including human) behavior.

By looking at the relationships of massive things we understand gravity. The Sun pulls the Earth.

By evaluating the reactions of tiny molecules to an electrical current, we can understand something noteworthy about timing.

We have to change the assumptions about female competence.

Most people have figured out that rape is wrong.

But it seems to be difficult for people to grasp these 3 fundamentally sexist behaviors:

  1. The existence of the wage gap: the average difference in the amount that men and women are paid.
  2. Mansplaining: typically defined as explanations in a condescending manner, but usually encountered as explanations coming from an assumption that the party being explained to does not already have the information being provided with. …

My story is that I was born in 1991 in Zaporozhye, Ukraine, the same year that the Soviet Union fell apart.

My mother is Ukrainian and my father is Pakistani. They met in the medical institute in the Soviet Ukraine, fell in love, and started a family. By the time I was born they also had another baby, my older brother. Things were looking and feeling comfortable.

In the 80’s the Soviet Union had many programs for enhancing the world’s perception of it. That is how my father ended up in…

Since the beginning of this year I have been walking down the road of personal development. I did over 200 hours of research into this topic by reading about it, talking to people, and generally observing the behaviors of others on similar paths.

I now realize that what people are often talking about when it comes to personal development is actually just healthcare.

I switched up my diet, I trained to wake up early in the morning and…
