MB Type: INTJ; reason, science, art; atheist; poet; philosopher; 3 citizenships; love to learn and learn to love; 4 wives; 2 children; many lives, many deaths, many selves. I enjoy thinking and discussing ideas. It is important to make and maintain enduring friendships with intelligent, emotionally mature persons of all ages, male or female. I like being useful to others by which I mean providing sensitive support for the individual's unique growth. I am responsible for my freedom which is total.
Epicurus puts it well in four lines:
Nothing to fear in Gods.
Nothing to feel in Death.
The Good can be achieved.
Evil can be endured.
I write, teach, love, care and otherwise cultivate and deliver my experiences and understandings of the "Human Condition" which I hope furthers freedom as both means and end for at least a few individuals. I value consistently applied reason, acknowledged feelings, earned respect, self-and-other responsibility, moral integrity, passion, courage, commitment, competency, beauty, wisdom, serenity, elegance, autonomy, truthfulness, science, technology, Western and Eastern classics in all areas of human endeavor, the complementarity of sexual and other opposites and Aristotelian logic, making mistakes and meaning, atheism, the free market, trustworthiness and love.
Physically: 5' 9'/175cm, 155lbs/70 kgs, a mostly healthy body (sagging--will tone for you!) and youthful face a decade younger than my age through regular exercise and keen genes.
Emotionally: Above average EQ. As Mark says in the novel A Many-Splendoured Thing by Han Suyin: "The only tragedy in the world is never having loved." I agree; I am no longer tragic. I have learned to value and be responsible for intimate relationships.
Intellectually: Above average IQ. Skeptic, atheist, humanist, libertarian (as Hans Selyes coined: egotistic altruist), rational thinker, valuer of objective truth via the scientific method. I am avowedly against postmodern sophism, left wing collectivism, and misanthropic Greenies & Goreies, so rampant in Western academia/media where too often learned ignorance leads to earned helplessness.
Lifestyle: I have been constantly reading in ideas and writing prose and poetry since my early 20s for my own self-motivated ends and practice at the art of learning and loving. I value the creation of responsible character oriented beyond convention to beauty, elegance, and passion without stuffy formalities, conspicuous consumer-driven show of wealth/status, or infantile bohemianism.
Oh, and least I forget, I can, with Steve Martin's help, be a wild and crazy guy with a can of opened tuna fish behind each ear, and able to get down on all fours and play with the kids.
OK, GET OVER IT!
Just look at my photo: it is taken today (Sept 11, 2014) by my iMac. You decide. I certainly have more energy than most of my colleagues, clients, and students even to age 3! (I recently taught 3 to 5YO's and research methods of educating the very young including the Montessori approach.)
So overcome your understandable reluctance to get to know a man of 70...I am a very unique individual and have never entertained the thought of retirement...when I die I retire, until then my work is play and my play work. I plan on another active 20 to 30 years. Join me for a few of them?
I live a passionate, rational, romantic life and am seeking that person who is my equal to adventure with.
(P.S. My Penis still works very nicely thank you, AND I can laugh at it!)
