My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I've lived a number of places, some places for school, others for work, and a handful because I wanted to check out something new. I must admit, I miss the sky in New Mexico. Paintings and photos do it little justice. Right now I am out in New Orleans, I plan on moving out to Anderson/Belton sometime around the new year. I left New Mexico to help my family move from Ohio down to Belton last year(2014) so they could try out something new from the corporate lives they have lived for the past 20 some odd years. After staying for a month or so I moved down to New Orleans. I had visited here once before just a few days after Hurricane Katrina hit in 2005. I was part of the Federal Response known as JTFK(joint task force katrina). At the time I was an active duty combat medic with the 82nd Airborne. The tenacity and love of the town by the locals was one of the most moving things I had seen. Its a neat city but I grew accustomed to the slower pace of things back in New Mexico. NOLA is not overly fulfilling though it can be entertaining. I'm currently working as a line cook, they pay really well but its a constant cycle of running in circles all day every day.

I would say I'm far more spiritual than religious though I do practice a small handful of dogmatic traditions relating to buddhism. I view the Dalai Lama and Karmapa as some of the most driven and spiritually sound people in the world since Gandhi or Sai-Baba. I was raised openly towards religion though I went to church summer schools, and attended various christian churches when I was young, usually with my grandmother. As an adult I randomly go to mass(I prefer latin masses typically). I do believe Jesus Christ was one of the few truly divine to have ever walked upon this earth. I'll attend Buddhist Temple(I tend to end up here more often than any of the others) for meditation times and occasionally for practices or teachings. One time I even attended a revival. It was a really happy experience though at times a little oppressive. I've even attended a series of full and new moon coven gatherings out in the mountains of the high desert. I've also attended Mosque several times and have celebrated Hanukkah ceremonies at a Synagogue. I've found one common thread in all of these places and with all of these events. They all, at their core intent, is to alleviate the suffering of those around them and for the world. Ideology and emotion get in the way of that intent, and so is the way of the world.

I'm a rather mmmm... nerdy person may be the word? I play some video games but most of my time at the computer is spent either programming or looking up things, either the news or relating to something I'm tinkering with. I own a drone and am working on building a larger design for possible agricultural use. I do spend a fair amount of time outside but no where near as much as I did while in New Mexico or during my short stay in SC. Its just oppressively humid being in the middle of a swamp but just outside the reach of the ocean winds.

I follow the news, politics, and international news daily. You need to know about the world you live in if you hope to effect a change.

How to improve the lot of human civilization as a whole and for the individual
Philosophy of Atheism
Spiritual concepts such as how ones consciousness changes after death. Heaven, hell purgatory, the bardo, nothingness, do we come back to eath as someone else or something else. I personally think its a little bit of all of them but its dependant on the individual. The many different religions are so similar to eachother in thier ideals of an afterlife and morality. So I'm choosing to explore the one that looks at the individual and thier emotional/psychological responses to everyday events in a rather scientific and systematic approach
How to blend science and faith without sounding like a nutcase. I have yet to figure that one out so I usually refrain lol(Nye and Tyson are my heros!)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Usually working. I'm a line cook and somebody has to feed the tourists. On the rare event I'm not working on a friday night I will be working the morning shift lol. After that though I usually go out for dinner and a drink of two at one of the new restaurants that seem to open monthly. I've been known to go to city park or canal place and catch a movie after eating. I know, what shockingly normal thing to do...
