My name is Alec Chapa. I'm a Senior in high school and spend my days thinking, writing, reading and generally learning. I'm a conceptual thinker and love to spread my ideas as well as hear other people ideas. I believe we can learn from each others differences, successes and failures as well as everyone else can learn from mine. I discovered TED through a book by the name of DRIVE by Daniel Pink. I joined because this is the type of place I want to be involved in and I look forward to learning and opening my mind with time spent on the site.
Reaching my highest potential which includes helping others to do the same.
Perspective is an evolutionary adaptation allowing us to see the world not the way it is but rather the way it is useful specifically to us as individuals, thus our different perspectives. I believe these differences provide insight but only in one direction-we can help each other to light the world but first we must get past our differences. A phone, as I see it, is a manifestation of a persons, or groups, perspective. Yet in manifesting it, we don't all need to be this person or group to enjoy a product of his/her/their perspectives. We can help each other by virtue of our differences.... to keep it simple.
Your ideas. My ideas. Philosophy. Mathematics. Psychology. Sociology. Wisdom. Physics. Taoism (Daoism). Political philosophy. Anything!
