I'm a guy full of contrasts. I love nature, and all the wonderous things she can do, but I also like big ole heavy machinery and the thought that humans (derived from nature) can make what we do with what we have been given (material and our minds)
I am a rather spiritual guy (reading up on different religions and eastern and western thought, mostly eastern though) But I love the philosophy of Ayn Rand and the thought that nothing is higher than your own mind.
I'm have very heavy hippie tendencies, but love to go to work in the morning and meet my aspirations (not to say that hippies don't)
I can appreciate the form of another guy's motorcycle, but do not care to hear it over the crickets at night
I like to eat healthy, usually mostly raw fruits and veggies (YUM) but have been know to enjoy a nice burger from time to time.
But because of these internal contrasts/ conflicts within me, I think it allows to me see and understand all sides of the story around me. Therefore, I don't get to angry or easily offended by others people's actions or thoughts. And I like that about me. Don't get me wrong, I definitely know how and when to stand up for myself, but also know when to let things float on by.
