My self-summary
Although I love my friends & family dearly, I've come to realize that they don't seem to enjoy having the meaning of their lives, or the essence of the objects around them, subjected to rigorous and logical questioning over a quiet pint in the pub! I'd like to tell you that I've read such and such a book, or met so and so, and it dawned on me that there is more to life than meets the eye...

The habit of looking to the future and thinking that the whole meaning of the present lies in what it will bring forth is a pernicious one. There can be no value in the whole unless there is value in the parts. Life is not to be conceived on the analogy of a melodrama in which the hero and heroine go through incredible misfortunes for which they are compensated by a happy ending. I live and have my day, my son/daughter succeeds me and has his/her day, his/her son/daughter in turn succeeds them... What is there in all this to make a tragedy about?

Anyhow, I find the golf channel comforting. It's green. People are whispering.
What I’m doing with my life
Living it with lots of love. Remember the love bit, also.
I’m really good at
Parsing out cogent ideas from (seemingly) complex topics, hypotheses, theories, etc.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I speak with eloquence, & articulateness.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I don't have cable, or watch television programs often. I'd much rather enjoy great works of literature & studying thinkers from the past.
Six things I could never do without
1. Logic
2. Science
3. Epistemology
4. Altruism
5. Literature
6. Happiness

On a typical Friday night I am
Reading whilst simultaneously enjoying my furry little feline companion. Maybe join a philosophy discussion on G+.

You feel resonance.
