I decided I wanted to become a theoretical physicist at the

age of 12, ever since, I've realized that my true passion is answering

the question: why do the mathematics of physics, over other, similar

mathematics, work so well as an analytic description of Nature? As a

result of this philosophical interest, and after my formal training as a

physicist, I am trying to become proficient in as many branches of pure

mathematics as possible. This interest of mine, however, does not focus

on the validity or accuracy of existing successful physical theories or

the possibility of developing new ones, instead, it focuses on the very

nature of the physical theory itself. Therefore, my goal of

understanding what is essential in the mathematical structure of a

physical theory lies neither in the field of pure mathematics nor in the

field of theoretical or mathematical physics; it does not belong to any

of the existing big academic "industries" and so it is doomed to become

a mere side pastime. The BRCP is the most natural environment I have

found to date where I could pursue such endeavours and be supported and

constructively criticised, the corroboration of this fact being my

experience in the Rethinking Workshop 2016. I also happen to be the

chair of the Spanish society SEMF (Society for the Study of Mathematics

and Physics) which has very similar goals to those described in the BRCP

constitution, and I intend to bridge the distance between the two

communities as much as possible and intertwine "live" events so that the

network of people connected by SEMF become aware of the goals and

intentions of the BRCP. In short, I feel like this community, the BRCP,

can be a central part of my academic activity in terms of interest and

willingness to collaborate, participate and organize. I am indeed

willing to get as deeply involved as possible.
