Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Rodin's "Thinker" could be a self-portrait by me. Except that I
more habitually sit in the lotus position.

I am from a working-class background, which is not OK. Under
certain circumstances, working-class values can destroy the
personal qualities that would enable a person to climb out of that
I'm not really sure to what degree I think independently, but I do
think I have a pretty unique insight into human psychology.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I've never had any specific answer to this particular question. I
suspect that the secret to success is to inherit a very large sum
of money, so as to have the time and financial resources to pursue
varied interests in depth. Barring that, it helps if you're a
People Person and have some single overriding interest that you
pursue to the extent that you land yourself in the Hospitalized for
Exhaustion club. But I'm about as far as you can get from having
any of these particular operational parameters.
When I'm not tied up in my servitude to the Man I play the guitar,

these things, I can say that I've been complimented on my

Human habits of mind, and the hold they have over me and over
others, and whether I or we could ever get free of them.
Back in the 90's I worked out the nature of the fundamental
impulses that drive human thought and behavior. The consequences of
having worked this out are fairly extensive in terms of the insight
it gives one into the human soap opera. Just a snippet of this
would be to observe that religion is not a special case of human
consciousness, it's just a fabric woven from various threads,
preexisting in the human mind. I have also observed that social
justice is essentially the new religion of the left. There's really
no distinction at all between it and ordinary religions, in the the
patterns of thought and emotion that are prevalent among the true
believers. What I don't know is what proportion of people for whom
this observation would be as plain as day, and what proportion
would find this to be completely out of left field. But I don't
think humans very commonly see thought their own psychology. I know
I wrestle with my own mental blocks, things that other people see
through much more clearly or just handle much better than I do.
