    So many ways to answer... astronomy (together with physics) tells the tale of our beginning, shows us our ends, tells us how we came to be, and helps us know our place in this grand universe.

    Would you consider pursuing it as a career?
    Nah. I'll let the astronomers do the work and theorize for myself while they do what they do. I'm admittedly not fit for it.
    What do you think about the idea that universum was first only 1d(before big bang), then after big parabum it went to 2d(every particle exactly the same distance from each others) and then formed 3rd dimension from tyese particles starting to attract each other and created mass, energy and this place we see around us in the collision. Black holes being holes in the system, which are in some "zero" dimension, where even the time is absent in our current understanding of it, because its away from the dimensions that we live in. And quantum mechanics being the 4th dimension(if you dont count time as an dimension)? And about the possibility of universum developing new dimensions inside ours(something like quantum physics, but more deeper)?

    Virtually all psychology (though, more specifically, but not limited to, Developmental Psychology, Experimental Psychology, Physiological Psychology, Psychometrics, Social psychology, Cognitive Psychology/Personality Psychology/Typology, Biological Psychology, Neuroscience) followed closely by biology (more specifically, Ecology, Evolutionary Biology, and Anatomy/Physiology).

    Interestingly, it seems that I did not answer this myself.

    Which one is it?

    Right now, biophysics (or biological physics, because some make the distinction that biophysics is the use of tools that physics created to study biology, while biological physics is the study of the actual physics of biology). The physics of biology.

    Why are you fascinated by it?
    Because, in life, I see the most amazing spontaneous processes that exists in the universe. I would like to understand how it is that the processes in life can be spontaneous, and perhaps even how they came to be.

    Yeah, I know in very general terms we know the free energy of the reactions/processes have to add up to be negative.

    But I would like to delve a level deeper--into the fluid-dynamics of the cells, tissues, organs, and systems, into the normal modes/general dynamics of molecular machines that carry out the processes of life, into the energetics of biological processes (like respiration), and even into the quantum mechanics that makes electron transport in mitochondria and chloroplasts possible.

    Also, I believe biotechnology is poised to transform society as much as semiconductor/integrated-circuits did in the last half-century (my former career was as a circuit designer for a maker of CPUs/chipsets).

    Would you consider pursuing it as a career?

    I am pursing it now. I am currently a biophysics PhD student (working for the chemistry department of my school).

    Once I graduate, I will have degrees in Mathematics, Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, and Biophysics. If I cannot come up with something for society after that much education, I will consider it a failure of my notion of the value of education.

    This is quite interesting subject, human body is quite amazing thing, all the things going on when action potential travels through axons etc.

    And here is an interesting video, but you propably know this stuff

    Whichever science did this.

    This is pretty excellent, I dont know what science contributed to it, but I like it.

    Sociology or psychology. At a stretch anthropology.

    Astronomy or psychology
    Masquerading as a normal person day after day is exhausting.

    Which one is it? Sociology is my favorite by far. Astronomy and geology are close second and third.

    Why are you fascinated by it? I've always been fascinated by the way people act in groups...and how the group acts as a whole.

    Would you consider pursuing it as a career? Working on it now actually!
