Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
"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
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I moved back to the east coast to be closer to my family after
living in Washington for five years and Seattle for three. it will
probably take me a bit to readjust to both the culture and my
family but it felt like it needed to be done.
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
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Laughing, especially when it's not appropriate.
Explaining things in an alternative manner or rewording a statement
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
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
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
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
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
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
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
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.
