About Saeed


I strongly believe that the only way for humanity to survive on this planet lies purely in engineering a better, more sustainable future for ALL humanity. This requires us to think more creatively and, more, in terms of exploiting the earth's resources intelligently to make sure that the next and the following generations are going to enjoy a vast variety of resources, not fewer than the ones we are enjoying today.

I am constantly trying to bite a big chunk of the cake of my life which means keeping an open mind and heart and experiencing whatever I can with my limited resources.

And the last thing I feel like saying is that there is probably no hereafter--so live a human life and do not die before having done a thing or two for humanity.
