There seem to be no trolls in Romania, only creatures called, "Revenir" -- "Those who return" -- similar to "Revenant", which is a mythical creature that comes back after death to seek revenge. This is somewhat applicable, since this thread seems to keep coming back to life long after this thread's effective death -- that point in time when it became obvious that the OP was more interested in selling his worthless books than in being informative.

Alfa1 I have some bad news for you. The Nihilists are right your life has no external meaning. You (and the rest of us) simply exist. There is no point in wasting two of the precious few years you have to exist on this nonsense. The answer to the question of who am I (which is really the same question as why am I here) is something you're just going to have to sort out on your own. You do this by deciding for yourself what gives your life meaning. There is no religion of belief in myth (like chakras) that's going to answer that for you. You're wasting your life and what's sad about that is that it's the only life you get.

My answer is in my books.
If you do not like my books buy this book:

Dalai Lama and the scientists
To understand how important is my wave function: Dalai Lama with a lot of physicists are trying hard to link spirituality with science without success

I am also an electrical engineer. His "formula" makes no sense. Instead of offering evidence for the existence of chakrae and the rest of his esoteric nonsense, he tries to sell his books.

Woo.

No job between 2001 and 2005 not a good time in Toronto after I came from USA(Boston not Alabama) I could not find a job. In that time I developed my Evolution theory:

I am the first in the world who calculated: 98% of people are at animal level(maybe that is why I did not find a job).

Well that is possible. Not many employers want to hear that they are at animal levels.

Seriously though your problem is that you have settled for a false enlightenment purchased to cheaply. To really get the kind of understanding you want takes years of disciplined study and research. You've simply cobbled together silly "wisdom of the ancients" nonsense and settled for a bad copy of understanding. You don't have the understanding you think you do.

Or it's possible you don't care about that and you're just shilling a really awful book.

You can read about the experience on my blog, or buy the book and the t-shirt.

My ego swells with every moment I revel in this achievement, yet I remain humble and accessible.

How cool is that?
A few years ago I was struck by an astonishingly violent bout of food poisoning. At one point in the middle of the night I was perched on the throne with stuff coming out front and back down below, while I was also twisting around and being copiously sick into the shower. This was so vigorous an exertion that my eyes were streaming and my nose was running in sympathy. All I needed was for my ears to bleed to have the whole set of emissions from orifices .

Ok, let's reign this in a bit.

alfa1, we are not interested in buying your book. This forum is an optional class, you do not get to assign homework or additional reading until you have given us something interesting enough to justify such action.

So, let's start simple. Many people have very different views of what a chakra is and what it does. Could you please give us your definition of chakras in 100 words or less?

Your little idea is not even remotely similar to Darwin's Theory of Evolution. You're not even close to having a theory yet. Let's try to keep a sense of perspective shall we.

Vague, lacking meaning of any sort. You clearly don't think very well if at all. So I guess you are saying that Obama is biting on Merkel to get her to do what he wants.

Your ideas are idiotic and halfbaked, you could not define what 'animal' is to save your non-existant soul. And how Mr. Obama is just some visceral person shows you are shallow and muddled in your thinking.

And yes Mr silly man, humans are apes, duh.

I wonder if the OP really thinks that we're a bunch of gullible, ignorant fools, or if he just anjoys provoking abuse. Either way, he should stick to gypsy fortune-telling.

Einstein did not calculate how many idiots, rotten people are...

I think you forgot to carry the two. It's an easy mistake to make, I suspect you need to realign your maths chakra.

What is it with engineering and crazy?

No offense intended to the many fine engineers here on need, but do you find an excessive number of woo coming out of the field? It may be an illusion of some sort, but it seems that engineers more prone to nutbar ideas about physics and biology and religion...

Oh and any proof of chakras yet?

Actually, no. You're not the first one to answer the question "who am I" using science.

Carl Sagan

Any child knows it!!!
I grew up believing I was made of snips, snails and puppy-dog tails.

Apparently, I'm really nothing but waves and chakras

People "at animal level”, apparently.

So how many ‘levels’ does your “Evolution theory on people” have? Where do you place yourself in those ‘levels’?

I must say both you and your “Evolution theory on people” seem rather denigrating.

Oh and any proof of chakras yet?
It’s all the stress and strain, elongated working hours and compressed schedules. Leading to a distortion under the applied loads and a Poisson distribution of crazy. So most engineers are only average crazy (for engineers that is), a few to the one end are practically sane (and often pass as such) and few to the other end are, well, I think ‘bat crap crazy’ is the technical engineering term.

Everything is in my book Who am I?
I defined 7 levels...

Live the engineers alone they are not capable to do such things...
