I am, fundamentally, a builder. I solve problems and mysteries by deconstructing them, because I achieve new things by building them, and I need to learn the parts and understand the math and architecture of the construct. To learn to make buildings, you must first explore a lot of them, and meticulously. But really, you need to take them apart, a piece at a time. In this way, building begins with demolition and a builder is at root, a hacker of constructed things.
