LAYMN is about improving quality of life through evidence-based science.
We exists for a single and timeless purpose – to reveal your innate abilities and hone them to the highest degree. Now, what you do with it after that is entirely up to you. If you want to take over the world, we don’t teach that, but give it a go.*
We start from the principle that absolute truths are rare. As the philosopher once said:
However, some things are more certain than others. At LAYMN we focus on the basics. Science that has over many years proven to be impactful but more importantly reliable.
This means that we test our assumptions and that we seek to falsify our positive results. We will follow cautious interpretations of the data.
Instead of popular science books, that might not stand the test of time, you will find references to robust volumes of scientific research in our articles. Knowledge, that if applied, will shape you into a stronger, wiser and more resilient version of yourself.
Furthermore, it means that we hold out judgement until we see additional proof from replications, while still actively keeping an eye out for contradictory evidence.
About Siim Andres
I had a happy childhood. I spent a lot of time outside studying and collecting bugs, climbings trees and trying to take care of injured animals. As a child I also watched a lot of television. I learned German and English that way enough to impress my teachers and classmates.
In my early 20s I did a stint studying chemistry and computer science. I liked both and found them interesting but I realised that my passions lay elsewhere. When I dropped out of computer science a professor asked me if I had a plan. I said I did.
At 25 years old, my plan was to start a company in digital media publishing. At 28 I sold my first website. In those 3 years I realised that I cared deeply about the scientific process, human well being and the lifestyle of an entrepreneur. So I decided that I needed take a step back and go back to school.
I am now 29 years old and in my third year of studying psychology in the University of Tartu in Estonia.
My friends describe me as: “friendly, warm, funny, chaotic (but in a good way), weird ( but also in a good way), an out of the box thinker who brings people closer together “.
