My self-summary
Warm robot, searching for the elusive rationalist hippie.

One of my primary goals is learning to be more rational, despite my tapestry-heavy interior decorating and penchant for incense.

I'm cripplingly absentminded. I once accidentally melted salad into my bed. Had to throw both of them out.

I am libertarian, poly, a hermit, and skeptical of feminism. I am a vegetarian except when I'm not, to remind me morality isn't real.

I will go to great lengths to avoid having to interact with other humans.

I am exceedingly optimistic and I have done way, way more acid than is probably a good idea. I don't know if these two things are related.

I used to be devoutly, protest-abortion-clinicy religious and am resisting the urge to write my entire profile in Bible verses.

If you are a 98-99% match with me, I'm happy to throw you on my FB so we can keep an eye on each other until we're in the same town.
What I’m doing with my life
I do comedy and/or porn and I want to help people find peace.
I also have ended up traveling the world somehow, probably because I think about dying a lot and am not looking forward to it.

I'm luxuriously homeless.

I'm in Seattle now, with Copenhagen by mid July and then Berlin for a while, and then St. Louis by September and LA by October. I am originally from Idaho, though, where I used to frequent Walmart in my pajamas every other 3AM.
I’m really good at
my job
miming
sweating
doing acid
photoshop
simple words
growing body hair
leaving the country
typing very, very fast
dressing like I'm Amish
The first things people usually notice about me
I walk really straight because I took walking lessons.

Edit: Maybe not, I think it's wearing off

The six things I could never do without
Social dancing (ballroom/blues/fusion). I've had sex less enjoyable than a slow dance with excellent connection.

a minimal government that doesn't forcibly regulate nonharmful behavior or take my money-OH WAIT I GUESS I DO HAVE TO DO WITHOUT THIS

The internet, because I think my brain in its formative stages has grown into a tightly woven symbiotic relationship with it, and if it is removed I may die.

Soylent, the universe's breast milk.

Financial independence

Your mother's sweet nether embrace
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Everybody naked.

What it will feel like to die

How to more effectively demonstrate compassion and understanding to both myself and others. How to ask the right questions.

how to quit being hyper aware of the way the world reacts to me, which is probably self defeating

wtf does it mean to know something, wtf is meaning

wtf consciousness, how did you get all up inside me

Can you have experience without interpretation?

The neolithic period

Narrative

Also how to rob places and assassinate people. But for fun. Like recreational creative assassination.

How and why my thoughts just formed. Where did they come from? Can you feel it? And how to identify and correct irrational thought patterns.

Nonviolent Communication.

Why I don't have sex with everyone. I like sex. Not having sex with everyone makes zero sense and I feel weird and guilty about it.

about gender and the survival purposes of traditional gender roles

"objective truth". i can't put that thing in enough quotes.

The black plague
On a typical Friday night I am
plucking flowers, strings, or hair
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I love you

(this is a culturally unacceptable thing to say on a first date, however)
You should message me if
you're into rough conversation and choking out bias
