I am a scientist with a doctorate in mathematics and trainings in fields ranging from psychology to nutrition to Ayurveda. I explore the mind with scientific meticulousness and write and speak about my findings.
As part of this research, I lived without social interaction and media consumption for 3.5 years. In the process, I developed a Theory of Mind (ToM) and expanded it into a Theory of Everything (ToE). Both theories are described in my book on consciousness.
One of my research focuses is on the programs that control us and how we can free ourselves from them so that we can develop our full potential and fulfill our purpose as part of the whole. Another focus is a scientific basis for spiritual phenomena and thus the connection between science and spirituality.

The Necessity and Magic of Asking ‘What Am I?’
The story of the eagle in the chicken coop shows why we need to ask this question and how to find an answer
In 2005, my life felt thoroughly boring — despite a successful international career as a scientist and entrepreneur. I longed to do something new, but I was at the forefront of an international movement. If I stopped what I was doing, many people would be affected. So, I did not have the courage to do what I knew I should do. But things turned out so favorably for me that I could end my career in 2009 gently. I started a new career as a mindset coach. But that didn’t really satisfy me either, and I was quickly bored again. Providence struck once more, and in 2011 I heard a woman talk about her experience exploring the question ‘What am I?‘. I was electrified — and hooked. From that day on, I wanted to find out what I am.
The question ‘Who am I?’ is about finding out what kind of human I am among all humans. The question ‘What am I?’ goes much deeper. It is about finding out what it means to be a human; what the full potential of a human is. With this question, I am not only questioning myself, but all of humankind. The following story illustrates what I mean.
