After meeting people these days, they generally appear to come away with the impression that I am a walking contradiction that somehow manages to makes sense. I think they just convince themselves of the latter part so their heads don't explode.
I've worked in science (as a researcher) and business (as an owner/manager) my entire adult life, but I may be moving in a new direction altogether right now. Perspective and all that.
I've been working specifically in the field of cryonics since 2006. If you're really bored you can watch and listen to me on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=chana+de+wolf
I am separated from my husband, but we will continue to work together for the foreseeable future.
I take great pride in having nearly limitless patience, but people who test it too often get relegated to the shit list. I am extremely level-headed (my best friends describe me as "grounded") and adept at seeing both the big and little pictures. I strive to be multidisciplinary. In my opinion, genius is the ability to make (hitherto unseen) connections between ideas, often from separate fields. I know that I am smart, but so far I have yet to prove myself any sort of genius.
I am interested in improving humanity and the human body through innovative research and technology. If you have ever wondered if it is possible to become more human (more evolved) in a directed sense, you are my kind of thinker. If you are actively involved in this process you are my kind of doer, as well.
I particularly care about: science and science education; cryonics and the naturalistic worldview; writin' confusing metaphors and makin' beautiful music; and, perhaps most importantly, boundary-pushing.
What can I say, I'm a strange bird.
I am adaptable, incredulous, and independent
