My self-summary
A poet-engineer.

An idealist realist, a pragmatic dreamer, I'm always looking for ways to improve myself and the world, always looking for the perfect experience.

Secular Humanist: https://soundcloud.com/raymond-arnold/brighter-than-today

Somewhere between ENTP and ENFP.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm finishing a degree in General Engineering, I intend to work with railway systems. It's not easy, but I'm living out my dream of helping with sustainable development. I'm also in the process of learning to be a decent writer, poet, swimmer, mechanic, dancer, and, above all, human being.
I’m really good at
I'm good at pouring my soul into stuff I like; usually, this involves learning or solving something interesting, or reifying a dream. I am especially fond of finding surprising connections between things (for instance, puns!).
The first things people usually notice about me
That I'm 'intense' and 'goofy in a good way', a 'renaissance man', a 'gentleman', I 'dance well' and can be 'very silly'--or so I'm told.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Music: Parov Stelar, C2C, Daft Punk, The Beatles, DIO, REO Speedwagon, Journey, Yes, Queen, Dire Straits, King Crimson, Star Platinum, THE WORLD... :P

I also really like listening to covers of songs by 'Youtube artists', like so: http://youtu.be/5QWBLVhql1w or so http://youtu.be/eaDS3yktLlY

And the album for "The Great Gatsby" is one of my favourites ever.

Literature:
Isaac Asimov: "violence is the last resort of the incompetent."

Terry Pratchett: all irredeemable, expendable bad guys are obvious sociopaths — the rest are just misguided or scared or stupid but never outright evil, and get some chance of redemption. The gods are there to be mocked, not venerated; truly benevolent higher powers (like Death) don't care what people believe. And basic human (dwarvish/trollish/undead/etc.) kindness and decency always, always wins the day in the end. Also, he's funny as hell.

Walt Whitman: open greatness.

Philosophy: Look, it is possible to like philosophy without being a haughty snob about it. Kant blew my mind, Nietzsche inflamed me, Eliezer Yudkowsky made sense of stuff.

Video Games: I play games for the story or for the aesthetics. Anything by Bio-Ware and Obsidian. Portal's lots of fun. Proteus is a wonderful trip.

Films:
Blue is the Warmest Colour, because *spoilers.*

Pacific Rim: it's not the lone hero that wins the day, but teamwork, friendship, honesty, and trust.

Into The Wild: magnificent piece of humanity, up until the "adventure in Alaska" bit, which really wasn't the smartest move.

Anime: FLCL, Eva, Bebop, Attack On Titan, Madoka, Ouran, Psycho-Pass, Gankutsuou (dem fabrics!), Kill La Kill, Vinland Saga... ultimately, they're all about understanding and accepting oneself and one's world as they are, to throw away one's very self for the sake of that which is truly precious. And then there's Jojo's Bizarre Adventure, which is pure fun.

Comic books: Alan Moore, Neil Gaiman, Animal Man, Jodorowsky, Métal Hurlant: strange, shocking, mesmerizing.

General: John Green. He is awesome.

Relationship stuff: The Ethical Slut. A solid reference book.

Food: I like strong, complex tastes.
The six things I could never do without
Once we've covered food, clothing and shelter, just find me a library, good company, and fun challenges.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
In general, I spend time with my own thoughts, feelings, and consider morality and what-to-do quite a lot--for now, tomorrow, in ten years. I think a lot about ways to improve myself and the world around me.

I also spend a lot of time thinking about languages, the etymology of words and genealogy of ideas, and about tropes, stories, potentials and possibilities.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm really turned on by displays of great humour, virtue, passion, or skill. I guess you could call me an aretéphile?
I’m looking for
  • Everybody
  • Ages 18–28
  • Near me
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
For anything beyond the short term: You have intellectual integrity, the curiosity to seek the truth above what is convenient, and the courage to admit to being wrong in the face of sound evidence and arguments, and, conversely, to uphold what you think is true and just in the face of peer pressure.

For those of you who live close to me, I suggest that we make meeting in person our priority, and keep messaging to the strict minimum necessary to both make sure we're people that we'd actually enjoy meeting. Otherwise, we may run afoul of what I call "Movie Adaptation Danger"; "Harry Potter didn't sound like *that* in my head! And weren't his eyes *bottle green*?"
