I am an ex-scientist, a wannabe philosopher and a Special Operations police officer in a violent Latin-American metropolis.

After meeting my nemesis in the field of battle, I have chosen to foster my own character by studying the Great Books of the Western World — not simply studying, but actually remembering them through the Art of Memory.

All we know, think, eventually do and become, is based on whatever we can inculcate in our minds as memories. My theory is that if I deliberately fill mine with the right stock of thoughts, what will grow from there will be better. I will have wiser words for my beloved ones and I’ll make wiser decisions, even when staring Death in her face.

I might even be able to save my soul…
