My self-summary
"Zen has no goal; it is a travelling without point, with nowhere to go. To travel is to be alive, but to get somewhere is to be dead, for as our proverb says, 'To Travel well is better than to arrive.'", They Way of Zen by Alan Watts

In this way, I am totally Zen and my natures are akin to the solitude ways of the elephant in the forest, though always hoping to just be a social butterfly.

I am an adventurer, a psychonaut, and a mad scientist.
What I’m doing with my life
I moved back to the east coast to be closer to my family after living in Washington for five years with three of them in Seattle.

I have a background in computer science, mathematics, physics, and religion/philosophy. I moved to Washington to work in bioinformatics which also took me to Seattle. While in Seattle, I also worked as a software developer for awhile and for an even shorter period, doing work-trade in a small community where we had gardens, a nursery, and some different crafting/arts.

I love Kundalini yoga and hope to develop more depth there in the longer term, maybe teaching one day.
I’m really good at
Laughing, especially when it's not appropriate.
Climbing trees.
Taking risks.
Making self-sacrifices.
Explaining things in an alternative manner or rewording a statement for clarity.
Driving for long periods with few breaks and little sleep.
The first things people usually notice about me
More recently, it's my addiction with inversions (yoga). Normally it's my long hair or my silly laughs.

The six things I could never do without
1) Boundless wander.
2) Perceptual freedom.
3) The yin and yang of science and faith.
4) The beauty and humor behind finding truth in absurdity.
5) The ineffable beauty that any communication between you and me has something "lost in translation".
6) Numbers... how else would I have made this excellent list.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I like to think about the evolution of complexity from the mandelbrot set to developmental psychology. About the fact that the same laws that formed the stars are the same laws that evolved all the species and some how created a beautiful creature that when it finds itself has the propensity to change the world through love. Even more so, that the only lasting reforms come through this love and even deeper, how does one find this love and embrace it.

On a less positive note, how modern dating is a complete debacle where most people are evermore self-defeating in their attempts to build lasting and meaningful relationship. This has nothing to do with dating being online or offline, either way, people become far too persnickety.

On a more fascinating note, how there is nothing in the world that is ever complete. I could argue this with mathematical theorems, or through historical or scientific examples, or even with the concept of "mastery". But in the end, I think it's best said by the reflection that no matter how you think you have encapsulated a space as "nothing", there is always something still happening there and you are just missing it, at least at that moment. This is why there is always more to explore, or even the potential to re-explore, or in the Taoist perspective, yin and yang.
On a typical Friday night I am
"I did absolutely nothing all day and it was everything I thought it could be"
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am sincere but I try to avoid being serious.

I am poly-curious -- specifically I feel passionate about "free love" and would like to know if I could be a compersionate lover.
You should message me if
Just friends? Just enemies? Starstruck lovers?

Only one way to know, if you take the time -- I will too.
