My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Self-realization means stripping away all the extraneous layers to reveal the essential reality. Dating, on the other hand, tends to involve putting on layers in order to impress potential romantic interests.

So, here I am: Limbo. Stuck between two worlds.

What can I say about myself? I'm more of a thinker than a sports type of guy. I'd like to say that I'm the artistic type, but I think that's just in my head. I definitely have a growing appreciation for art, and I have this crazy idea about going to film school.

I figure if my artistic aspirations don't pan out, I could always kill 6 million Jews instead. *ba dum, tss* ...Sorry, bad joke. :P

Now where was I... Oh, I aspire toward the Gaudiya Vaisnava lifestyle. You might not know what that is or what it entails. The best thing we can do is to let it reveal itself organically in your time. We don't usually see God all at once, after all.

Religion is a subject that piques my intrigue. I would like to meet someone who at least finds it to be an interesting conversation topic, even if she doesn't consider herself particularly religious. Hell, I've had wonderfully engaging back-and-forths with self-proclaimed atheists in my time. For some people, "spiritual" is a better word to use. I am fine with whichever. The difference between the terms is imaginary anyway.

When I am not engaging in philosophical discourse on topics such as the theological problem of evil, the euthyphro dilemma, the existence of an immaterial soul and the nature of free will, I am often joking around with my brother and dad, confusing my mom, sharpening the sword of knowledge for myself or others by playing devil's advocate, watching or discussing movies, actors or filmmakers, or just being a silly, silly bastard (my last name should be "Snow" [thanks, Game of Thrones!])
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
(AKA "Everything You Need to Know About Time Travel")

It is accurate to call me a space traveler, as it is the case that the earth upon which I dwell is moving through space. I can not, however, be properly identified as a time traveler on the basis that my body moves through time. That's because my body DOESN'T move through time. You read that correctly. My body, like all bodies in this world, does not move through time. What my body actually does is change, and change is what defines time itself. Hence, my ever-changing physical form constitutes a reference of time unfolding as its atoms travel in relation to each other as well as in relation to other physical bodies.

Put another way, to state that a body travels through time is to commit a category mistake. It is akin to saying that some trees exist within these things called forests. The fact of the matter, rather, is that trees themselves (in some aggregate) constitute what we call a forest. Similarly, traveling bodies are not moving through some separate sphere called time. Their travel constitutes what we refer to as time.

I AM A TIME TRAVELER but only on the basis that my consciousness is perpetually moving through future bodies. Even if I were to move in the other direction, the same method would apply. This is the only coherent time travel model. When fiction depicts time travel as bodies being hurled backward or forward through time at the risk of running into their past or future selves, this conveys an absurdity in terms and logic. All paradoxes dissipate in the ether of rational thought once we adopt the proper understanding of self, the absolute, the material nature, time and action. These five items are the subject matter of the Bhagavad-gita, without which I would have nothing worth calling knowledge; without which I would have nothing worth calling peace; and without which I would have nothing worth calling love.

Oh, I also work and own a house... but who really cares about that stuff, right?
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
...having a useless talent in which I can talk in one of those computerized voices (sort of like the Stephen Hawking or a generic, default answering machine voice.) The accuracy is uncanny. The secret to it is learning how to vocalize and enunciate while inhaling.

What else? I feel I am apt at holding philosophical conversations.

Oh yeah, I am often told that I look younger than my age. So, I guess I am good at that.

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Bhagavad-Gita As It Is, Srimad Bhagavatam, The Nectar of Devotion, and other related Vaisnava texts.

Movies: All sorts. From family-friendly stuff (e.g. Taare Zameen Par ["Like Stars on Earth"]) to the darkly humorous, infinitely strange and taboo bashing (e.g. Miike Takashi's Visitor Q.) From old silent movies (e.g. Carl Dreyer's La Passion de Jeanne D'Arc) to modern day attacks on the senses (e.g. Gaspar Noe's ENTER THE VOID.)

TV: When they're on, I watch Louie (FX series), Breaking Bad, Hannibal, Community, Dexter, Boardwalk Empire, True Detective, Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, House of Cards, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia and the mindchildren of meta-avant-garde group PFFR (i.e. Wonder Showzen, Xavier: Renegade Angel, The Heart She Holler, et al.)

Food: Indian is the best vegetarian food in the world. I also like Thai if they make it right. Italian can be great as well.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. A list of six things I could never do without.
2. A random selection of six things.
3. Steve Martin's SNL Christmas wishlist.
4. A number 4 bullet point on an arbitrary list containing a total of six things.
5.
6. Yeah. I just blew your mind.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
1. Philosophy and culture as it pertains to spirituality/religion.

2. The type of filmmaker I'd like to be/whether I am creative enough.

3. How I might be able to turn symbolic logic proofs into a fun and relatively easy game. I'm sort of a nerd for it ever since I took a class. I think it would be cool to have software on a touch screen device that could identify when justifications are valid or not.

4. Buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo.

5. How the above entry is in fact a grammatically correct English sentence.

6. For the last couple of years, I've taken an interest in gender issues, especially pertaining to men's rights versus feminist theory topics. I highly recommend the works of Alison Tieman (Typhonblue) and Karen Straughan (girlwriteswhat) among many others.
On a typical Friday night I am

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
A collection of random and not-so-random thoughts:

7/31/12: "According to OKC, 13% of users believe that trees have souls. For the sake of consistency, I hope that that means that 13% of users believe in the existence of the soul."

8/29/13: "It's been far too long since I've updated this profile."

5/24/14: "Epic status profile activated."

6/1/14: "Alright. I understand that it is sometimes difficult to gauge a person's intent through text. I also understand that the average woman on a dating site like this receives sexual offers from men on a daily basis. However, it isn't necessarily the case that if a man is talking to you at length for quite a few days or weeks, and somewhere down the line he asks a question that pertains to sexuality, and he asks it using technical terms (e.g. penis, vagina, oral sex, etc.,) that he is trying to indulge a conversation wherein you're talking dirty to each other.

"This leads me to my second point. Rather than shutting down from having the knee-jerk reaction of being offended by something you're not even sure actually happened, how about people explore WHY they feel that way instead of making the other person feel bad for being open about the topic of sexuality? I know that, for myself, I don't wish to make anyone feel uncomfortable. So, if I say or ask something that offends you, simply let me know that you're not comfortable talking about it, and we'll move on to something else. I try to always preface a personal question with a concern for the other person's comfort level. Sure, we might not know each other except on here through 50 or 100 messages, but this is all part of the process of getting to know each other, isn't it?

"At the end of the day, the overly sensitive that aren't willing to have an open and honest dialogue will fall by the wayside. No man ought to be expected by any woman to walk on egg shells around her. We're all adults. If any of what I've written here offends you, then maybe it's time to put on those big girl pants. Do you want a man who will placate you or respect you? Yeah, that's what I thought."

6/3/14: "I might be in the theistic minority here, but I think that if God has a plan, it was written up long ago and tossed in the back of a rusty, old celestial filing cabinet, figuratively speaking.

"These talks I encounter from theists about God having a special purpose for each little human boy and girl just sound like ego-making nonsense to me. It's not even that the statement is necessarily untrue on its face. After all, one could say that God has a plan for each blade of grass, but we don't find that knowledge to be particularly significant, do we?

"So, how about we operate under the assumption that the details of our mundane lives are meaningless and worthless in the grand scope? In fact, the more inclined we are to identify our actions and choices as divinely significant, the further from God we are."

6/6/14: "A gay man discusses gender relations among heterosexuals and the folly of feminism, and he gets it completely right." (p.s. this update is a clickable link to a YouTube video if you're viewing OKC on a normal computer browser. On the OKC app, http apparently doesn't register.)

9/23/14: "God allowing us free will is precluded by God's having created us.

"The above statement, while containing implications devastating to the average theist (generally of the Abrahamic variety,) is easy to overcome once God as creator is properly deemphasized.

"The creator God is inferior to Krishna. Krishna does not create directly but instead expands into particular forms with the unique purpose of entertaining an inferior desire held by lesser beings. In this sense, Krishna is neutral to creation, in and of itself. He desires neither to create nor destroy and simply maintains the universe as He sees fit in order that the living entities can try and fulfill their desires to enjoy independently. Brahma and Shiva (the creator and destroyer, respectively) function at the direction of Krishna. In this way, Krishna is free in ways that creators and destroyers are not.

"This brings us full circle to the original statement in this post.
In summation, freedom is possible for us because we are not created just as Krishna is free because there is nothing that necessitates Him as a creator."
