I’m most attracted to ideas and theories. All film, literature, life pursuits are only interesting if dealing with philosophical ideas(the matrix, blade runner, do androids dream of electric sheep, stranger in a strange land). I want to figure out what I should do. I’m interested in novel sciences that deal with ‘big ideas’ AI, complexity, theoretical cs, logic. I also have an aesthetic sensitivity... I play piano and would like to compose music and sometimes I feel even more sensitive to the human condition and want to write/make films. I'm 20 and feel like I need to decide soon on what I want to do but I just can’t make my mind up. If I am to pick anything I’m sure I will remain interested in the rest. The possible paths I’ve considered are…. Majoring in philosophy and figuring it out after that, majoring in computer science with a minor in philosophy and mathematics and going into AI research and becoming an AI scientist. With studying only philosophy I could go on to writing, film, entrepreneurship. The AI route I could do something meaningful and deal with the concepts I enjoy thinking about most. Anyway, I feel very lost maybe someone has some insight.
