I teach for the money. I write for the malcontents. I do music to feel. Guess which one I'm doing now. Just kidding, you don't have to be a malcontent. I'll match whatever energy you bring to the table, but I would prefer someone who's not afraid of trouble. If modern society collapsed tomorrow, I'm irrationally sure I would be ok, maybe even better than I am with society. I'm mathematical and skeptical and I still believe that people are mostly good or at least want to be good. (I define good as wanting to make life better for oneself and others.)

I spend a lot of time thinking about
How photons can be massless, but electrons have mass.
How impossible it is for my brain to listen to music passively and how that might be wonderful. What makes my creative projects relevant to a more self-absorbed culture. If I'm too self-absorbed.
