I'm an introvert and an intellectual, interested in everything my
life depends on and in explaining and understanding every part of
my experience, at my own pace. I spend most of the time in a world
of ideas to great extent shielded from raw experience. I'm also a
loner because I live in a world of different values and meanings
than most of the members of genus homo. I'm certainly not a sponge
full of what's and who's around me. Is this a value judgment? You
bet it is... But it doesn't preclude respect... of some kind...
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to find meaning and depth, trying to find someone who needs
them as badly as I do. Accumulating knowledge and wisdom. Trying to
recover from childhood trauma or at least find some comfortable
space, do some good and be important to someone.
I’m really good at
Reading books in English, allegedly writing prose, sucking
information relevant to my purposes, who knows what else. I'm
rather a military adviser than a foot-soldier :) - I have a vision
and I'm assembling a working model of reality in my head but I'm
not good at dealing with minutiae.
The first things people usually notice about me
A lot of gray hair; unusually big backpack - some say that I carry
explosives inside of it ;); I really don't know.

The six things I could never do without
Head full of good ideas, glasses, a good book, my backpack, plants,
nation of two
I spend a lot of time thinking about
what it's all about, nature, plants, history, hunter-gatherers,
utopia, rise and fall of civilizations, nation of two; it's hard to
On a typical Friday night I am
sleeping as God commanded.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have avoidant personality disorder, so what? It made me who I am
- a restless seeker of truth ;). It may be metaphorically called a
shamanic illness, a spiritual crisis leading to growth.
