My self-summary
Just Platonic Stuff here, move along you wild sex fiends.
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.
What I’m doing with my life
I work for Solar City, and its the best job I've ever had.
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’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 gamer, although I sick at most video games.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm tall and I'm well-read and I have a mad case of RBF plus I'm into scary woo woo stuff so I'm not very approachable. This I regret.

The 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 how to bring it down. The way that bureaucracy is like 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
Chilling at your mom's house. She makes a great meat loaf. Don't mind me, I'm just getting the recipe.
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! Shyness seems to be a kind of social illness that feeds off of anxiety and self absorption. Just relax and stop being selfish by constantly wondering if people like you. People are silly stupid, they don't know you. Plus, who cares what they think? Your opinion of yourself is the only one that matters.
