Platonic also in the sense of admiring the ideas of Plato.
I love the deep things in life, the kinds of things that open themselves to you after a lot of study and contemplation.
I will pick up any book and read it, just to try it. My favorites books tend to be either fantasy, sci fi, or dystopian (like 1984 or A Brave New World)
Here are a few of my guidelines for myself: Keep an open mind, pay attention, remain skeptical, ask questions, and experiment.
I'll try almost anything twice! I enjoy discussing philosophy, music, art, science, history, and politics. I would never push my beliefs on anyone, although I do enjoy a friendly battle of wits. I'm originally from Southern California. I enjoy traveling very much. I'm interested in making friends as well as anything romantic. I'm an ENTP, if you are familiar with Myers-Briggs.
I used to be in the Army National Guard, but I don't think most people understand how messed up the military can be. I'm antiwar, precisely because I saw what the military was.
I'm rather political, but don't worry, it's under control. I'm very anti-establishment. I occasionally volunteer.
I'm a practicing magician. Not the top hat bunny cutting women in half kind, the attainment of mystical states of consciousness kind. Just exploring the Mystery. The oldest, greatest Mystery of all.

I mainly listen to rock and metal, and sometimes electronica.
