**All I want to do is explore stuff, make comic books, read science articles, and bankroll a technocratic revolution. If you're down with that, get in here.**
***I just recently realized that I might actually be a grandmother trapped in a young bear man's body. All the signs are there: bosomy hugs, baking, spoiling children, watching shitty soaps. Werewolves have the moon. I have the smell of freshly baked apples.***
I prefer people with open minds and burning convictions. I thrive on intellectual stimulation and debate, always seeking new things to inspire growth. I look for knowledge and find it in challenge.
It would be excellent to find a mind similarly aspected, also with a philosophical bent. Plato's 'The Republic', 'Nicomachean Ethics' by Aristotle, with a healthy dose of that Le Bon guy's 'The Crowd'. Also, if you can find strong symmetry between Rumi, Frank O'Hara, and Louis CK, you and I will get along famously.
My sense of justice and politics are important to me, but I'm not the zealous firebrand I used to be. I probably identify best as a democratic socialist libertarian eco-feminist wookie love muffin. I lean Left quite hard on most things, but I've found it more important in the past few years to pull myself into understanding and companionship with people who hold perspectives opposite mine. Since I finally broke down and bought a new pair of glasses, I very much prefer doddering around the old dusty rooms and dark corners of the mind (any mind), and happily sharing that space and a coffee with any other brain that's as interested in poking bears as I am.
I'm quite a relaxed person, but I do not believe in going with the flow. "Going with the flow" all the time only ensures that your life will be dictated by the world around you. So, even if relaxed, whatever your path, be conscious and proactive about it!
If just seeing me on a typical day, what I am is a simple man with a big mind. I enjoy a relatively geeky lifestyle: comics, video games, mathematics for fun, etc. I have new ideas and inventions every day and seek out how to implement them or people who can make it happen. I am hopelessly attracted to innovation and deep conversation, and I am raw in my approach to others. So let's dispense with the being guarded and talk about ideas and invention!
I'm super down with Food Not Bombs and I do view poverty as a form of violence. I support capitalism insofar as it can get us to the next level of technological development in order to operate our basic human needs through a post-scarce model, but I'm largely socialistic through a technocratic lens. I'm pro-nuclear and pro-gmo, so I often run afoul of even my own allies. Anyway, if you hate poor people and you think their plight is all their fault, we probably will have a rough time maintaining common ground, but I'm not exclusionary, so have at!
