My self-summary
Philosoph. Lover of wisdom.
I love the deep things in life, the kinds of things that open 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, dystopian, or metaphysical. (Here, metaphysical merely refers things beyond the physical world of the senses. It doesn't imply a belief in a personal God that judges all of our thoughts, desires, and actions)
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, politics, and the meaning of life. 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.
What I’m doing with my life
I work as an apprentice auto mechanic. No, I won't fix your car for free.
I was against the government since before it was cool to oppose the government.
Secret societies: I'm in one. Yes, I know how ridiculous that sounds. Don't knock it till you've tried it.
I could elaborate, but if you want to know more, you'll have to ask.
I’m really good at
Reading, writing, analyzing movies and tv shows, looking up things to research just because I can, board games (my favorites are cards against humanity and settlers of catan), and I'm a casual gamer. I'm learning quite a bit about the different mechanical systems that make your car run.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm tall, dark, and have a large vocabulary. I've been told that I can be unintentionally intimidating. I will ask you questions about yourself, so bee prepared to answer them. This is what one does on a dating site, no?

Six things I could never do without
Good food, good reads, good movies, good music, the love of friends and family, the internet, and intelligent conversation. And breaking arbitrary rules like only being able to choose six things I could never live without. I'm such a rebel.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Reality and perception. Magick and mysticism. Our society and our culture. Love and Sex. How to live life as freely as possible. Creativity, and where it comes from. Why history remembers some people, but not others. How to transcend restrictions. The way our government works, and if it's even possible to change it. The way that bureaucracy is the polar opposite of creativity. Why some organizations are more adaptable and creative than others. How we can transform ourselves, transcend our limits, and become more than human.
On a typical Friday night I am
It's a secret. It may or may not involve portals to other worlds.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I once danced off a cliff by accident.
You should message me if
You enjoy reading and talking about ideas. I just want to make friends and meet some new people, so don't be shy!
The two of us
