Philosophy/Physics 
This page contains ideas and informations about general philosophy, psycology, considerations about the Universe, existential questions, etc., partly taken from my books, all in plain understandable language with a minimum of scientific terms or references.
I am a citizen of the world (one of my hobbies is languages), but as such I started having identity troubles. I passed through various psychoanalytical therapies and started or better continued with new understanding thinking about myself, people, the world, the universe, interactions.........

Sailing
This was and still is my hobby number one. Have a look on the specific page and see how it started and how it developped till today. It started with dinghies on the Zurique lake, grew up to ocean racing in Brazil and went back, today, to dinghy sailing. It fits very well my aerodynamic and hydrodynamic interests and my open-air necessities, the feeling of the infinity of the sea, the greatness of the horizon line......

Master Swimming
I have been a little bit of a snorkeling diver, scraping off barnacles from the bottom of my boats or admiring fish in their habitat. My wife brought me to the new world of Master Swimming some years ago and I became a fanatic, participating in local, state, south-american, latin-american/caribbian and even world championships with reasonable success.

Airplane modelling
This is a very old hobby of mine which started shortly after WW II. As a future physicist I liked very much aerodynamics and started to project my own "super-airplanes". Some of them flew quite well, others went into the scrap box shortly after the first trials. For professional reasons I had to abandon this hobby because it takes a lot of time, but came back to it about four years ago and today I am the proud owner of a fleet of nearly fourty airplanes, both electric and combustion types, as well as pure sailplanes.
