My self-summary
Short and sweet: Either you like documentaries, thought experiments, causing a little trouble, going to a college lecture, watching Rick and Morty and then taking over the world, or you don't like me. :P

Longer: Ohhhh don't read this part, just skip to the oh-so-interesting sex questions in the question/answer section! :D Just kidding. My Briggs-Meyers is INTJ. I work hard to keep myself young at heart. Sort of a "schemer" for the most part. I am a humanist, and part time nerd. I feel that the best part of my life is yet to come. I am much more of a giver than a taker. A philanthropist. Truthfully, it can really be a curse. Most of all, I am a person who loves change. My whole life's philosophy is centered around change. I have to take the chances, and try the things I've never tried before.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm very busy these days, trying to get ahead and get to my real dreams, and I have to say they are closer now than they have ever been. "The future is coming on".

There is so much to do. I have to make it to Burning Man, have to make the 2 or 3 apps up that are on my mind, have to get my consciousness uploaded, and a million other things. So many ideas, I can't indulge myself in them or else I get frustrated.
I’m really good at
As a mechanic, fixing things.

Thinking things. -Prone to delving into ridiculous thought experiments.

Listening to people - I am pretty good at getting people to talk about themselves; and I believe it's because it's easy to tell that I'm pretty genuine.

Also, let me just say that I love the outdoors, and I am pretty big fan of outdoor activities. Running, hiking, canoeing, fishing. I'm up for it.
The first things people usually notice about me
I can be pretty nervous when meeting people from this site at first.

Other than that, I think that people notice that I am a positive person, and am good to have conversation with, especially if its about the deep stuff.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I am usually reading something that is useful for whatever endeavor I am currently pursuing, but 90% of the time it's something in the category of either science or philosophy. I usually "read" my books by audiobook. It keeps me awake.

Lord of the Flies
Brave New World
Enders Game
Speaker for the Dead (From Ender's series)
Catch 22 (Minus a few chapters :/ )
A Brief History of Time
(Some Shakespeare)

Some Favorite Movies:

Rick and Morty!!! (T.V. Show)

Princess Mononoke

Hero (Jet Li. Possibly my fav movie ever)

The Sandlot!
What Dreams May Come

Phoenix
And plenty others. I grew up with the oldies though like Sanatra, Beatles, Simon and Garfunkel, Lionel Richie and all that. The 60's and 70's had some great music for sure.
The six things I could never do without
1. Transhumanist hopes
2. Change
3. Imagination
4. A holy moment, here and there
5. Someone willing to listen to all my nonsense. :P
6. An opposing opinion
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Everything. All the time. Physics, morality, economics, psychology, history, social trends... Thinking is fun.

Even more fun, is to find another person like me who doesn't get tired of analyzing the details. Even if the conversation ends up at a huuuge point of contentment, I still leave with a smile on my face. I don't argue to win, I just argue to think.
On a typical Friday night I am
Pretty random. Might be fishing or biking or working at home (bleh.)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I want to go frolic in a field of lilies.

No but really, the most private thing that I am willing to admit is that I have realized that I am really not the kind of person that can feel fulfilled alone. They say that a person should be able to achieve a state of self-fulfillment/wholeness as an isolated individual; but I have realized that I just cannot do that. And I am finished pretending that it's some kind of ideal state. I'm just done with all forms of self-denial/asceticism. And I am kind of tired of dating around too, truthfully. I know I need to share life with another special person, it's not that complicated. It's just natural.
You should message me if
You can be practical, but you still have your dreams.
You can be cynical, but you still have your hopes.

And most important, you still believe in love.
