What philosophy guides your education: “This is one corner of one country, in one continent, on one planet that’s a corner of a galaxy that’s a corner of a universe that is forever growing and shrinking and creating and destroying and never remaining the same for a single millisecond. And there is so much, so much to see” – The Doctor. This is what guides my study, because there is always something new to learn.
