My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
passionate non-materialistic polymath and researcher seeks woman whose passions are intellectual, emotional, and physical

OKCupid seems to think that I'm a certain percentage "enemy" to most people here. I don't agree! I don't feel like an enemy to any woman here, even when I disagree with her on this or that--even when she would probably hate me for my unusual views and lifestyle.

I wish everyone here wisdom and luck in this difficult and confusing search to find agreeable company--and in trying to decide on which of the marvelous people here to focus.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
The scholarly life of study and research, together with exercise.
I'm a learning-junkie. You too?
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
*Making my own choices independently of the crowd.
*Knowing that I don't know.
*Knowing that others whose ways of looking at the world I've long passed may still as human beings be worthy of respect.
*Member of Mensa and the Triple Nine Society. So I seem to do well at highly g-loaded tests, especially when untimed.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Bipedal primate, opposable thumbs. More rational than most other mammals, but unable to adequately analyse the complex web of causation in this world. Loves to laugh. Glows when kissed passionately. This latter quality is very handy when you have to get up in the night to get something from the refrigerator and can't find the light switch.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Besides the usual survival items (food & clean water, nutritional supplements, shelter, medical care when needed (luckily rarely), enough money to survive, and health):
Library & Internet services
...
There's a lot more I love whose loss I could, though grieving, survive.
In this life, one loses very deep friends, one loses misplaced hopes, one loses even sometimes a sense of where one's true home is. One may feel in constant exile. But one can survive even these things if one still has some things left to do with one's life.
I have a surfeit of things left to do, to learn, to experience--much too much for one life! I shall surely die unsatisfied--but that is no reason to stop now!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Attic Greek, ancient history, and scientific and mathematical research problems. I spend a lot of time also wondering rather vainly how we might design a better society.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Wondering how I'll ever find you!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Is that I have private things I'm not willing to admit publicly.
And so do you--and there's nothing wrong with that nor anything to be afraid of--in my case anyway!
OH OK--how about this:
I usually don't even know what SPORT competitive teams play. I try not to annoy others by pointing this out...
