Definitely not the shallow end of the pool


Conversant in at least three languages, as well as several cetacean dialects, Fred the fish was reportedly able to explain the philosophers Kant, Hegel and Kierkegaard in a way that the rest of us could easily understand. 

Having undergone transactional analysis while in school and with an extensive background in Jungian therapy, Fred is as comfortable discussing his early childhood trauma as he would be swallowing a stray guppy.

He listens to both 17th century baroque chamber and atonal serial music for relaxation, preferring the scores written for clavichord, oboe, bassoon and typewriters. He has recently taken up painting, mostly moody, twisted portraiture in the manner of Lucien Freud.

Now that is deep.

You should hear how clearly and simply he explains the obtuse aspects of quantum mechanics.
