My name is Thomas; I am an expatriate living in Thailand since 1993. A lifelong interest in philosophy and psychology brought me to study the Theravada school of Buddhism shortly after moving here. I found it very profound and it has an enduring effect on my life. In addition to Buddhism, I have studied other things such as Taoism, consciousness research, psychotherapy, ancient Greek and Indian philosophy, formal logic, cosmology, 20th century physics, though I am not an expert in any of these. Professionally, I am a software engineer.
I stumbled across this forum yesterday and I am looking forward to an inspiring exchange. Thanks to the site owner and the administrators for creating this opportunity.
