Some people would say I'm a Mad Scientist, I would agree.
I am a transhumanist extropian utheist, and a staunch supporter of the proactionary principle. (Why sit around waiting for bad things to happen?)
I try to maintain a balance between mind & body .
I enjoy contemplation while out on walks or climbing everything from rocks to buildings.
Tae Kwon Do & Parkour interest me and let me burn off my extra energy.
I am equally likely to be found driving my body to its limits or devouring a torrent of data.
I am driven to grow, though I have no clue what will eventually become of me cognitively or physically.
Willful ignorance is my enemy, this impulse has led to travesty compounded upon travesty throughout history.
There is no excuse for the harm people do by following this course of action, so I don't tolerate this in myself.
My view is that most religions are memetic diseases that result in delusional behavior. If you're about to think to yourself "why aren't you tolerant of my religious beliefs?" Think of how dangerous it would be if all the buildings you work in and use were designed haphazardly and crushed millions of people over and over again... and no one ever tried to improve building design, and those who wanted to were shot... Now replace "building" with "society"... ya, that sucks don't it?
I deeply value my friends and loved ones, as well as the all strange things I've lived through. Life has done a damn fine job at giving me a vast array of ways to view life. Not everything was pleasant but I still wouldn't trade what I've gained from my life.
I have a personal sense of justice and honor, though it may not be what you think, but they're a facet of my personality I find important.
- study everything, and I mean everything – it is sheer pleasure to dive through the ocean of data available in the modern world.
- love ergonomically elegant solutions
- have been described as a dragon with a hoard of data instead of gold and shiny things, though shiny things are nice too.
- enjoy playing because it's one of the best traits of humanity to tinker and poke at life.
My favorite nick names have been Ifreet, & DataJunkie (I figure if I'm going to have a vice/addiction I might as well make it a useful one)
I have synesthesia between auditory & tactile sensations.
I am complex, primal, and contemplative
Plotting world take over
Researching clinical immortality, (why think small? even living to be 300 would suit me fine)
using my imagination
Dreaming up solutions to problems
Thinking about the Big Picture, & then working on the details
Helping my friends when they've got a crazy idea
well some day... more likely that I think/daydream a lot. Also, I'm short, though I say I'm about cuddle sized.
