What I mean is people who you felt were really positive energies in the world. By modern I mean in the past 30 years they passed on.

Man that thing gave me nightmares as a child and I think I am still a bit traumatized from it.

I'm listening to the audio book of 'Surely you're joking, Mr. Feynman' and it's brilliant. He's such a cheeky bugger.

Seems like many natural scientists has positive and optimistic disposition, therefore many people find them delighting.

When thinking of modern thinkers and philosophers, that I would have felt emitting positive energy, not many comes to my mind since almost every modern - if we consider it as the era of modernism and postmodernism - thinkers are critical and pessimistic by definition.

However, there is one I felted enchanting:

Jiddu Krishnamurti

Do you have any other in mind? I would love to hear... Could be nice alternatives to postmodernist, existentialist, critical theorists, nihilists etc. (whom I love to read though...)

Jacques Cousteau "le Commandant Cousteau" was a French naval officer, explorer, ecologist, filmmaker, innovator, scientist, photographer, author and researcher who studied the sea and all forms of life in water. His ship's name was Calypso.

"If we were logical, the future would be bleak, indeed. But we are more than logical. We are human beings, and we have faith, and we have hope, and we can work."

"What is a scientist after all? It is a curious man looking through a keyhole, the keyhole of nature, trying to know what's going on."
