Track Name: Platonic Solids (Theology)
I wanted to become a theologian, but I realized God can be explained through astronomy.

(Johannes Kepler)
Track Name: The last scientist astrologer was the first astrophysicist (Astronomy)
We do not ask for what useful purpose the birds do sing, for song is their pleasure since they’re created for singing. Similarly, we ought not to ask why the mind troubles to fathom the secrets of the heavens. Nature uses as little as possible of anything.

(Johannes Kepler)
Track Name: All that we lack at birth (Antropology)
Man was born free, and he is everywhere in chains. Helpless, we need aid. We are born weak, we need strength. Helpless, we need aid. All that we lack at birth, all that we need when we come to man's estate, is the gift of education. Gratitude is a duty which ought to be paid, but which none have a right to expect. Our will is always for our own good, but we do not always see through. I may be no better, but at least I am different.

(Jean-Jacques Rousseau)
Track Name: The key is in your hand (Personality)
If we can really understand the problem, the answer will come out of it. You must understand the whole of life, not just one little part of it. That is why you must read, that is why you must look at the skies, that is why you must sing and you must dance, write poems and suffer and must understand, for all that is life. In oneself lies the whole world and if you know how to look and learn, the door is there and the key is in your hand. Nobody on earth can give you either the key or the door to open, except yourself.

(Jiddu Krishnamurti)
Track Name: A dream within a dream (Chemistry)
Take this kiss upon the brow!
And, in parting from you now,
Thus much let me avow
You are not wrong, who deem
That my days have been a dream;
Yet if hope has flown away
In a night, or in a day,
In a vision, or in none,
Is it therefore the less gone?
All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream.

I stand amid the roar
Of a surf-tormented shore,
And I hold within my hand
Grains of the golden sand
How few! yet how they creep
Through my fingers to the deep,
While I weep- while I weep!
O God! can I not grasp
Them with a tighter clasp?
O God! can I not save
One from the pitiless wave?
Is all that we see or seem
But a dream within a dream?

(Edgar Allan Poe)
