Aug-2013 update. If I click on your profile, it is likely through a keyword search and because there is something you have said that I find interesting. If there's a 10 year age difference, please don't be creeped out. I'm interested in your words and what you said, not you. It's just some interests and qualities seem to be more in supply in younger profiles. No surprises there.
I'm not likely to message you, even if I have clicked on your profile and like what you have written. That's one part introversion and two parts pragmatism based on experience, and even general complaints levied against such types of site which have about a 20 to 1 M-F ratio. I admit my initiating messages of late have really just be cattle prod testing messages.
Please message me if you think there is something uncanny about what we have in common, or some cosmic concordance, or if you simply have something to discuss or disagree about (otherwise I am just left to argue with myself).
I will put full effort and sincerity into into a reply if you contact me, but as same hardly ever seems to result in replies on here please don't be shy and message me first. I may, however, not respond to the "Hi" type messages, or profiles which are virtually empty or do not reflect some compatibility (of personality types).
I'll admit, I have probably read 5000+ profiles on here and other sites and still seem to be searching, despite only trying to match on about four or five objective aspects of compatibility.
Is there anyone out there any more who would travel to the ends of the earth to meet the right person? I know you are out there somewhere. I know what potential technology has in this age to create possibilities till now not achievable.
It's funny that one could journey to the end of the earth for the real journey to begin there.
Self-conceited, self-asorbed, self-ish, self-serving, self-aggrandizing, self-centred. self-defeating.
It is clear. It is time to create some distance from my-self.
Me, me me. Meme, just an idea.
Perhaps move a few steps closer to true-self. One-self.
A few steps on a long journey.
On a collision course with destiny.
Like a fly on a windscreen.
Disclaimer: The silly parts of this profile were written long ago when I first set this profile up just for the quizzes and blogs.
I'll begin with a few short summaries that may just save you a crook neck, a build up of lactic acid in your joints and precious time out of your life you'll never get back. Once I start writing it is difficult to put stop to it (quantity over quality worked fairly well as my high school strategy and beyond).
In a Hare Version:
I am Satcitananda (knowledge, eternity, bliss) albeit dressed in a few extra layers and coverings. I find a strong resonance and attraction towards the Vedic conception of reality and philosophy but at the same time see the underlying truths that weave through all the world religions.
To list a few TV fictional characters/archtypes I strongly identify with (I have never read much fiction) - Neo from The Matrix, any of the good guys in Heroes, Clark from Smallville, and lastly Paddington Bear and Pooh Bear.
I don't know what it is, but I feel driven by sense of purpose and duty to save the world or change it in some way. Maybe we all are, but some do and some don't.
Paddington Bear is a favourite of mine. I mean well and am polite, likeable, find fresh adventure in every activity and situation, and for whatever mishaps I find all is always well in the resolution. Like Pooh Bear, I have a very calm and steady disposition, although I am really not that perfect. People will find me quite unphaseable but I am just good at internalising.

Well, sometimes words are just words. Definitions and understanding of terms such as religion, materialism, philosophy and truth vary so wildly between people to be of limited worth and even a disservice on a dating profile. The real value of words are in their meaning and as they say about actions speaking...
(deep breath) Extra-Version:
Actually I'm pretty introverted. I am an ideas person. You know that web site that's worth billions now? I thought of it first. The many scrap pieces of paper, computer files, and a couple of diaries full of scribbled thoughts and ideas are filled by but the odd occasion where I chose to record them. By far the majority evaporate into the moment to be replaced with the next great (money making) idea. Please contrast ideas person with action person.
I have an over-active imagination which continuously seeks to see the world for all its possibilities and potential, all its connections and relationships, and to appreciate the beauty in our endeavours of creativity and achievement. I respect and appreciate those who are passionate or excellent in what they do and are not driven by monetary gain or status, but by love and purpose. Money gain for the purpose of bettering society is of course the exception.
I find myself the very epitome of any INTP profile description you might find on the interweb. The descriptions are so good most people on dating profiles seem to copy & paste them verbatim, which is kind of ironic since INTPs are also suppose to be the creative and original types. Then again, efficiency (or laziness, how ever you call it) dictates there's no point reinventing the wheel. I have been somewhat lonely in the association of people in a similar space (INTPs, INTJs, INFJs etc) since I left my professional job several years ago where the whole team were INTPs and INTJs.
As an information scientist (well, my degree was in Information Science) I can't help but see all that is around me in terms of information or bits of data that can be organised and arranged in some way to be more useful and improved. Most of my ideas tend to be web centric. Part of my theory of everything involves the construction of a data model of everything. It is rather vexing that I have never had many to share or develop my ideas with.
I have a very strong sense of right and wrong in any situation which is instantaneous. This I inherited from my father. As a deep thinker the articulation of it is often can be disconnected from the moment appropriate to its explanation when in the company of people, but generally by later in the day, or the next day or the next week the words and reasoning to the bottom of the logic chain will have come to me.
You won't have much fun talking about sports with me. I enjoy the type of conversations with open-minded people which are about understanding the world or the human condition and solving the bigger problems. I read a number of online forums and discussion boards but do not post. I am ever filtering for ego and relativism in conversations as shortcuts to avoid becoming overly involved. I am very at odds with fallacious reasoning and rhetoric where truth and objectivity are secondary to personalities, egos, politics, authorities or purposeful ignorance.
I do have profiles all over the show and they're all quite differently expressed and of different ages. As match own okc, it's probably reasonable to give my handle soulbind on there. It was probably written 15 or so years ago though but is much more succinct.
