My thoughts & beliefs are closely related to monotheism but my faith is weak & this is making me confused and depressed at times. I don’t know whether I am a believer or disbeliever.

Anonymous asked: Hey Dean, I heard a while back scientists from all around the world are in the process of creating a hard drive that can function in your brain/store things that you remember so people can access it when you die. I'm not sure if this is an accurate description of the thing, but I'm sure that it's pretty close. What do you think about this? What are your views on it? I know it...
Anonymous asked: Considering neurons die off a lot, I don't think the brain actually does store everything it comes in contact with, it just has the potential to. But I'm not a scientist, I'm just throwing stuff out there.

Anonymous asked: Hi Dean, ever since I started high school, I became friends with people. I've had some close friends, and being me, I would often introduce them and at least get them to know each other. The problem, and I've notice that this is the third time it's happened, is that they become close. Then we would hang out in a group. But then, eventually, they would slowly break away from me and...
Anonymous asked: "Your brain can store literally everything you have ever experienced." I noticed in both this and the video you made, you used the word "can". This really interests me (along with the other 9 facts, love that kind of stuff) and I just want to clarify: are you saying our brain does have everything we've ever experienced stored somewhere, or it simply can/has the ability to?

Anonymous asked: What's up Dean, I want to know your opinion on whether or not humans are truly good or evil. I've been giving this some thought recently, and I'm having trouble choosing either side. Some things I came up with for evil are the fact that when someone makes us angry, we tend to have sadistic thoughts, about snapping, violence, or hurting that person, but most of us don't act on...
Anonymous asked: I have Trypanophobia. And whenever someone mentions being injected, I actually feel physical pain in my right arm (the same area where I usually get injected).

Anonymous asked: The earth turns around the sun, right ? And we usually laugh thinking about these dumb people in the middle age who thought that the reality was the opposite. Maybe it's not as simple as it seems. It's just a matter of point of view. If we decide our point of view is the earth, yes we can say the sun turns around the earth (general theory of relativity?). When we approve the vision of...
