Currently M.Sc. student for both maths and physics. Interested in topology, category theory, quantum field theory as well as gravity. Grandmaster Liu Cixin (刘慈欣) turned my life around with his mind-bending science-fiction trilogy (or holy scriptures) consisting of:
"The Three-Body Problem" (三体): Book which is the shit and absoutly lit.
"The Dark Forest" (黑暗森林): Book which you write when your penis is long enough.
"Death's End" (死神永生): Book which is a sixteen hour long orgasm.
A powerful alien civilization has launched a massive invasion fleet towards the solar system, that will arrive in four centuries. While preparing for the impending assault, humanity gets already torn apart in own conflicts. In desperate attempts to turn the upcoming interstellar war not with weapons and technology, but only the power of the human mind, some dark and sinister secrets about the universe will be uncovered.
After reading the trilogy, my brain was open like never before. Shortly after, I officially added "Adrian" as my second surname after noticing countless connections, like the canonical short form appearing in many mathematical terms like "Quadric" or "Quadrillion" as well as that it is contained as an anagram in "Mandarin" and translated on Mandarin, which is Ādéliān (阿德里安), is also an angram of the second surname of my little sister Sarah Adelina.
