When I was going for my undergrad degree in engineering I remember a quad conversation with a peer that opened my mind in the early 1990s. Like many conversations started in those days, we were discussing majors as one does.
At the time, I was enamored with the possibilities of materials science and engineering such as room temperature superconductors. My perspectives were quite limited.
My infectious enthusiasm aide, my peer indicated a deeper desire to be one of the problem solvers of the next generation. So, I asked what that meant.
What that meant was a dual major. The dual majors would be physics and philosophy.
When this combination was explained to me, my mind was altered.
Emoji didn’t exist then but I probably looked like this: 🤔🤯
