What is the one thing that we all look to find in life?
Fullfillment, Happiness, Accomplishments One of my goals is to change some aspect of human life, because I'm an artist I decided at a young age that the Mens Suit is getting so freaking old, brand to brand it's all exactly the same. I want to bring something radical to the stage. Above all I just want to be happy. But I have a feeling I'm going to have to move around a lot to figure that part out. By the time it's my turn to die, situation depending, I hope that I'll be able to let everything I ever cared about in this world go, so I can focus my mind on, situation depending, whatever I find relevant at the time.

Is there a natural way to balance the chemicals in a chemically unbalanced brain?
Thank you all for you insight and knowledge, I feel as though I have a direction I can start heading. I've been evaluating aspects of my current situation and have determined that some things have to change. I made a booboo in my Question, as Jean T. mentioned, Psychologist, not Psychiatrist. I saw a Psychiatrist when I was younger and without a moments hesitation whipped out the prescription pad. On the other hand, the Psychologist I saw seemed to me at the time, a complete moron. I spent many hours answering true or false, multiple choice questions that if he had asked directly, gotten to know me a bit I could have, would have answered. ANY WAY, I will take your knowledge to heart as I make my future decisions.

Storing nuclear waste containers in missile silos.
I think that would be a question for a missile silo architect/engineer. I have no idea if a missile silo would be considered safe enough to contain that material. My gut tells me that silos probably wouldn't be adequate by themselves, but with planning and work I bet they would make a fantastic foundation. Any nuclear physicists around here have some science to bring to the table?

Lottery vs. "The Lottery"
The old line "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder" comes to mind. By beautiful I assume you mean what we see in ads because that seems to be a social standard for "what beauty is". Genetically I think it depends on where you've come from. The odds of having certain features is kind of hit of miss when it comes to humans. A mans eye color or nose shape isn't guaranteed to show up in it's offspring. Unlike breeding animals where people have selected only certain features and exploited them, people don't. In that sense, yes genetic features are like a lottery though what the odds are is anyone's guess.

Life's purpose is to serve humanity.
I'm not entirely sure how you mean "to serve humanity". There are so many ways one could serve others. I think one of the best ways I could serve humanity would be to separate myself from the physical world, to take a step back away from the role of Leader and Follower and become a third option, an Observer. To see things as they are without opinion or emotion To think about the universe and our place in it, contemplation on "the questions" to invent new questions and put them into the world. Above all, to give people purpose. Purpose can be a large part to the key of happiness and empowerment. However this is a vast topic, as vast as vast could be, to expect the answers to come from one person would be inconceivable, it's something everyone has to do for everyone.

Are TED Talks considered "news"?
When I watch a TED Talk the information is news to me probably because following research projects closely all over the world can be difficult or impossible without connections. If I wanted to know about the current status of a newly discovered deadly strain of flu then I'll go elsewhere.

What is your definition of 'freedom'?
The ability to make a decision and execute it at any time on any subject, anywhere. This definition is flawed however, because the only way it could work would be if a singular person without influence from others was not inhibited from making those decisions e.g. socially, obligatory.

Should immigration laws be stricter to prevent terrorism?
I take everything with a grain of salt, mentioning the recent events in Boston I really don't know what to expect, I haven't gathered facts or heard from other people. But as one who is ignorant to those things looking at the very basic view, I have to say that a marathon seems like a... (not sure what proper word to use) silly? Ill advised? Inappropriate? place for a terrorist group to target (not there there is ever an appropriate place). The bottom line is that it was populated and in a major US city and caused terror among the citizens. I am ignorant to the specifics of immigration laws so anything I say below my be totally wrong. People who have a drive for a cause, any cause be it right or wrong on any and all levels, will do everything they can to follow through with what they believe in. That includes people within the country already. I think that at least 1 in 314,000,000 people will share the views of those considered terrorists. Those who would wish to enter the country with intent to harm it would do so by some successful means. I think what most people expect to see is the Black Pearl sailing in through the fog carrying a hold full of explosives and waving AK-47's intent on killing everything moving. The reality is that the intentions of a man can be hidden and they could legally enter the country. When it comes to immigrants coming in to "steal our work", I don't believe that for a second, what the issue should be is "*GM just laid off 20,000 employees". I mean the words barely give the action justice, but if we put 20,000 people in one place people would understand the magnitude of that action. If jobs weren't dwindling the story would be different. But this brings us to another entirely new debate. *I just use GM as an example for no specific reason, I'm willing to bet that with a little research I could big up at least a hundred companies with huge lay offs.

Should athletes be role models?
I think that it depends on the sport. I find it hard to focus on any particular player in a team based game, Olympic runners, speedskaters, etc are different, I can respect a man who has the drive to become the best. That said, I rarely give anyone respect without good cause. Good cause does not include scores, records or sponsorship's to me, the persons background, ideas and attitude reflect a lot more. I suppose saying that, athletes don't really constitute very good role models.

When to write a book?
I have every intention of writing a book. I had an overwhelming idea one day and I began to write a plan, idea's and characters. Development is very important. I would have to witness a truly incredible event to have the inspiration and will to write a book or any length. As it has been said in Ted Talks, A reason, a purpose, a Why? is an incredibly powerful thing in all aspects or life. If your book explores ideas or perspectives then with proper distribution of the idea people will come to you. If you write a book based on What, a book that is simply a book for the sake of writing with much embellishment and good use of words then you will have to rely on a lot more on other aspects and help.
