Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am therefore I think.
In a universe tending towards a chaotic uniformity I am an island
of ordered complexity, a bastion against entropy though as a part
of the system I increase it. I am a machine made of flesh driven by
electrochemical will. I am an infinitesimally small bundle of
material capable of creating a structure inside itself that
reflects an understanding of the workings of my environment. I am
how the universe comes to know itself. I am energy coalesced into
matter created by nuclear fusion in the heart of at least two
stars, that died in fiery conflagration and spread that matter over
lightyears thus enabling me to sit here, now, and reflect on this.
I am the culmination of my life, of the lives of my millions of
ancestors and every thought, feeling, action and event that has
come before this moment. And so are you.
There is nothing more beautiful and majestic than these simple
Every time I hear the words 'Humans are the only species that...' I
know what will follow will be blatantly untrue. Kill for sport? Sex
for fun? Dont reach an equilibrium with their enviroment? Take care
of young not genetically their own? There is always another species
that does it! Here, just to prove myself wrong: Humans are the only
species that build rocketships. Now THAT is true.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Too many things and not enough of any one of them.
At the moment, I am studying Geography and History and Philosophy
of Science as a part of a BA at Melbourne University. I also make
an open source computer game called Zero-k (zero-k.info).
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Humility. Im so good at it, it will blow your mind. It's an
artform, a skill, a talent- I guess some people are just born with
gifts like these. I wish I could share it with you, but true
genuine humility at the grade at which I possess it is not
something that you can teach, it's just innate. You wish you were

is the best part though.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Enough to feed the body and enough to feed the mind. That leaves me
with 4 more, so: Self-powered flight, non-Euclidean geometry,
star-flavoured blue speckled apples, impossible vehicular
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Everything, and too much. I like to think about things from oblique
angles and break even the simplest thing down until it reveals
itself to be more complex. If you can offer me a new way of looking
at something, I'll love you forever. I like to be challenged and
Intellect excites me. So does creativity.
The evolution of ideas within our culture FASCINATES me. Where
things come from and where they go, cultural misappropriation,
emergent tribalism and all the funny and totally arbitrary
distinctions people make between one another, how this relates to
identity. The root of social ideas, their context.
The whole body of science, religion, art, history. It's all
intensely interesting, in one way or another.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?

Bonus points if you understood all the jokes.
