User:Sunrise

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Sunrise is a symbol of optimism and hope for the future. I consider myself an altruist, and I edit Wikipedia to contribute to public education. I am a graduate student in the biological sciences at an American university.

I strongly recommend that everybody read LessWrong (about), a website that teaches you how to improve your logic and reasoning (from the link, scroll down and start at "Core Sequences"). There is a lot of content, but even small parts are worth it: humans are prone to a lot of biases and fallacies, and your thought processes make many more errors than you think, but in many cases you can learn to minimize or avoid them.
