I am very enthusiastic about electronic music. I have been a DJ for about three years now, focusing on downtempo, psychedelic, chillout, and ambient music.
I have been involved in the burner community for a few years, and its neighboring social circles, such as the ecstatic dance community, the rave scene, psytrance enthusiasts, various kinds of hippies, other circus types like hoopers and fire spinners, and more.
I play the native american flute. I dabble in yoga. I do not practice regular meditation, but I do focus on mindfulness in my daily life. I love to dance, especially to electronic music, though I haven't ever studied dance formally.
I have experimented with various diets, including 3-4 years as a vegetarian and about a year as a vegan. For the time being, I've settled on pescotarian. In the process I've developed a lot of camaraderie with people who follow unusual or restrictive diets.
I absorb information like a sponge, especially general surface-level information and random scientific tidbits. I read wikipedia compulsively; whenever I encounter a subject that I don't know enough about, I pull it up on wikipedia and learn about it.
I love humans. I love learning about anything that has to do with humans. Psychology, anatomy and physiology, anthropology, endocrinology, interpersonal communication, you name it.
Sometimes I like to go out wandering at night, to clear my head. On rare occasions I'll go out in the dead of night and just sit on a highway median, watching the headlights zooming in on one side and the taillights zooming away on the other.
Complex systems in general, really.
Being a general-purpose nerd. I develop spontaneous -- though usually short-lived -- fascinations with various topics. Even if I don't reach a deep understanding, I learn enough to keep up a conversation. All of that wikipedia reading comes in handy.
Taking care of people. I have a lot of experience listening and being a confidant. I have played the role of emotional support or caregiver many times.
Minimalism. I like to do more with less, and I have put more effort into getting rid of things than I have into acquiring them over the past few years.
Making and keeping friends. I have been told that I have a reassuring presence and I set people at ease. I seem to earn trust quickly. I invest a lot of energy in maintaining good friendships.
My hair. I have decided never to be humble about my hair.
My nose, I guess. People don't really comment on it, but it kinda sticks out, so I can't imagine they wouldn't notice.
A generally positive vibe. People have commented on this over and over again. Even when I'm depressed, I still seem to put out a good vibe.

Food: I like to eat brownie sundaes and unagi and avocado and breakfast tacos and blueberries and bagels with cream cheese and steamed broccoli and pancakes and peanut butter and smoothies and lemon meringue pie and cheddar so sharp that it bites back and anything with chocolate chips and breakfast for dinner and kale and tuna salad and black beans and sticky rice and mussamun curry. But usually not all at the same time. Oh, and I like peppermint tea.
Quiet, personal, intense conversations in the middle of the night
Where my life is going.
Whether I am good enough.
What I believe in, and how to practice it.
How to bend societal rules.
How to change a person's perspective.
Polyamory and open relationships. I am very poly-friendly. I think a lot about how to pursue and improve communication in relationships in order to make open relationships work better.
Psychopharmacology. Pharmacodynamics, pharmacokinetics, changes in receptor expression, changes in gene expression, categorization of psychotropics, polydrug use and interactions, cultural perceptions, ethical issues, the works.
The relationship between science, Buddhism, and unconditional love.
The relationship between hippie-speak and science-speak. I don't believe in the metaphysics but I think of it as a potential vocabulary for a systems theory that's beyond the reach of current reductionist approaches but still fits into a scientifically founded world.

If you have read any of this and thought "oh yeah, I'm exactly like that".
If you wander the streets at night, mostly to clear your head, but maybe, just maybe, to chance upon someone who hears the same song you hear, feels the same energy you feel.
