I suppose it's also worth mentioning that I am part Mestizo ("Hispanic" mixed with "Native American" blood), so it is probably prudent to let racists (as well as sexists and homophobes) know that while they are free to believe as they want, I will not respond to messages from them. Actually, scratch that, if you are a racist, sexist, or homophobe, please DO message me and we can have a discussion about it. With that being said, I don't wish to be mistaken for a politically correct, easily offended prude. In fact, nothing could be further from the truth.
As for my interests, it would take an entire book to discuss them all in depth, but I do enjoy learning about music, history, politics, certain areas of science; namely biology, astronomy, neurology, and psychology. Among the numerous people who have influenced me are (in no particular order): Socrates, Buddha, Voltaire, Thomas Jefferson, Sigmund Freud, Carl Jung, Karl Marx, Friedrich Engels, Frederick Douglass, Arthur Rimbaud, Virginia Woolf, Martin Luther King, Jr., John Lennon, Kurt Cobain, Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, Bertrand Russell, Carl Sagan, Noam Chomsky, Richard Dawkins, Christopher Hitchens, Sam Harris, Harry Partch and George Carlin. The list is so long that I've obviously overlooked some, haha.
Oh, and I suppose I should add that I do take care of my physical health via exercise and watching what I eat. I guess it really matters to some people lol.
