Hi Ray - yes, many people think/live this way intuitively but are often marginalised by a merciless education and employment system which is designed to place people in boxes for as long as possible.

I'm glad you have found a learning environment and social circle that fosters multidisciplinary thinking.

I'm not fond of the term 'renaissance man' because firstly it assumes that polymaths are or ought to be exclusively men. This couldn't be further from the truth. Moreover, it assumes that such polymaths were exemplified during the European Renaissance, which is also inaccurate. Whilst that time and place did produce many impressive polymaths, there have been many other eras, civilisations and cultures which produced equally, if not more, impressive polymaths. In Europe we are taught about Leonardo, Raleigh, Leibniz and others; but what of the likes of Nezahualcoyotl, Shen Kuo, Ibn Khaldun and Maya Angelou? Polymaths are a timeless people.

I wish you continued success on your own polymathic journey!
