Which is why philosophy, history, economics, politics, religion and all that kind of goodness tickles my fancy. I need to know what makes the world run.
Music is my second passion. I can play a little, dance a little, and sing a lot, which is what I often do in my spare time.
My third love is video games. I just like them, ok?
You also might want to know that I'm usually chill and reserved. My life has its own particular rhythm, which I'm loath to disturb. I'm open to compromise, as long as I'm not the only one doing the compromising.
MBTI: infj / intp
Enneagram: 5w4 / 9w1
Politics: neoliberal, socially progressive
Religion: I'm an atheist, I also believe in God(s), and I think They neither exist nor don't exist: this is less paradoxical than it sounds, once you disentangle the possible meanings.
I've met God(s) and They gave me their commandments: Blake's Messiah told me: do what thou wilt; and Blake's Newton told me: reduce transaction costs. I'm a disappointment of a prophet on both accounts by speaking this cryptically, but damn, isn't this fun? ;)
- Slogging through my backlogs of computer games to complete (NP: Witcher 3)
- Slogging through my backlog of books to read (NR: Wittgenstein 'Philosophical Investigations', Rorty 'Philosophy and the Mirror of Nature', Ostrom 'Governing the Commons')
- Enlarging both the aforementioned backlogs
- Practising the piano and the djembe
- Coming to terms with the whole 'being an independent, responsible adult' thing
Combining facts and conjectures into my Grand Theory of Everything
Not getting in other people's way
I also love computer games of all stripes, especially RPGs (Fallout, Planescape:Torment, TES) and point-n'-click adventure games.
I read mostly non-fiction books, about the topics I mentioned earlier.
Like for most mammals, there are tv shows and movies I like, mostly not very demanding. I'm not allergic to anime, board games, or comics either.
- The Sublime
- what I should've said back then
- how much cooler this TV show would be if I was a character
I sleep with plushie carrot.
I sometimes pretend I can dance like Justin Timberlake...
...and I nail it!
...You believe morality should be based on empathy, virtue and reason and not bad ancient literature.
...You love music in some form, especially if it's unusual.
...You know what it's like to be embarrassed of telling a joke so ridiculously convoluted that no one understands why it's funny.
...You're an interesting person who has something different and contrarian to say :).
