What’s the greatest lesson life has taught you?
Don’t look at faces; look inside.

What’s the most important?
To have a family.

What advice would you give the younger generations?
Be yourself and get a good job.

Are you worried about dying?
No. My parents are Christian and I am an atheist, but I am happy about it. Knowing there is nothing afterwards is a relief for me.

When was the happiest time of your life?
When I was 57 and I retired.

And the worst?
The last year I was working; it was very stressful.

What’s humanity all about?
Being kind to each other.

Why are there so many conflicts in the world?
Because of religion.

Is a peaceful world possible?

Maybe it would be without religion.

How old do you feel?
Younger than 60.

Is one lifetime enough?
Yes, I think so. I don’t believe in reincarnation anyway.

How has Bali changed?
I first came three years ago, and nothing has changed. The beaches are a little bit cleaner, but that’s all.

Has tourism been good for Bali?
Yes, because the money people can get from tourism is higher than any other average profession.

What’s the major difference between the East and the West?
In the West, people work harder, so they make more money, which boosts the economy.

Have you ever doubted your religion?
Yes, and couple of years ago, I stopped believing.

People believe because it helps them, but in the end, religion only creates wars.
