My self-summary
I am only looking for friendship on here as I am long-term relationship.. if you might wana be my buddy then please read on - I'm always in need of more intellectual stimulation.

If you send me a message that says "Hi, how are you?" or any other trite crap that leaves me to make the effort, I will either ignore you or have a go at you. You get what you give; you have been warned.

"I could never trust anyone who's well adjusted to a sick society.” Andrea Gibson

I love gardening (permaculture) and am looking for like-minded people to talk to about such exploits and possibly join me too.. Hoping to buy some land in the next few years and get a permaculture/sustainable farm going.. looking for others to join the community.

Okay.. let's start with the labeling (which I actually hate but it seems necessary) as that seems to give people an idea of who I am pretty quick.

I often class myself as an "anarchist" (I am anti-rules and rulers in short, but when it comes down to it I am somewhat of nihilist, and don't believe in anything whatsoever) total fuckin hippy, absurdist, existentialist, stoner, gamer and want to find like-minded folk.

I'm straight forward and honest, I expect the same from others.

I am interested in discussing the universe (quantum mechanics, astrophysics, spacetime etc) massively interested in psychology, behavioural biology, philosophy especially concepts such as morality (and the way it has evolved in conscious beings) the detached nature of modern western society, human behaviour from a zoological perspective, empathy vs compassion (big Paul Bloom fan) I also love contemplating the future in relation to science fiction - sustainable communal systems and whether they could work, artificial intelligence and what that means for deeper concepts that we hold close, like the idea of 'the self', consciousness etc) and dystopian ideas.
What I’m doing with my life
Right now struggling to know which direction to go, I would like to do a psychology degree but I also want to live sustainably/holistically/simply (partly because I am quite the eco-lover but also partly because I believe it frees the mind to ponder more worthwhile things) and get out of the city - this place is a prison - but I am chronically ill which makes everything I try to do massively complicated, expensive and painful.

Trying to be more in control of my mind.

Constantly contemplating the absurdity of the universe, of morality, existence - the inevitable and constant frustration of dealing with other human beings.

Playing PC games (I play ESO so if you want a questing buddy let me know), watching cartoons, reading, watching academic lectures, sitting in quiet contemplation and trying to work everything out from an objective rational standpoint.

Painting, drawing, singing, laughing, playing the Ukulele.. trying to find people to jam, play games and hang with! :D

Food

Wholefoods ftw! Carrot and other veggie cake, tomatoes, Mediterranean food, almost all raw vegetables, beanmix, cheese (though this has to stop -_-) I do not buy meat and refrain from eating it in most circumstances. This is due to my ethical problem with the way animals are treated as commodities and products.
The six things I could never do without
Assuming that this isn't literal - Fresh food, cold water, fresh air, somewhere cosy, art, marijuana.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The absurd nature of the universe; from a limited subjective Human standpoint ofc ;) The cultural rituals of the human species. Patterns... so many patterns. Psychology, human behaviour. How Devo everyone is -_-
On a typical Friday night I am
Getting stoned in bed watching Cartoons, Sci Fi shows, movies, painting or playing the Ukulele or...PC games like Elder Scrolls Online, Skyrim, Portal/2, Half Life/2.. varying puzzle games etc. :) Chillin' with my best buddy and sweet lover TheFirstDreamer
Nowadays mostly reading/gaming (Sci-Fi/Psychology and ESO)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I suffer with depression and anxiety, the latter more than the former..and I am in full body chronic pain 24/7 which makes me pretty moody. I am far more hostile with people than I really would like to be.

I switch between being a very cheerful, sociable and patient person to one who feels the urge to isolate themselves and has to work extremely hard an not being an asshole, to myself and to others.

I suffer with several illnesses that causes me huge amounts of pain every day and affects my eating, sleeping and many other basic functions which I would be happy to explain in detail to anyone whom I felt I could trust. I have trust issues, mostly based on the fact that a great deal of people I meet are too stupid and reactive to bother even trying to trust.
You should message me if
You are capable of differentiating between the shadows you see on the walls and the dazzling world outside the cave. I'd be possibly impressed if you got the reference, even more so if you can see beyond it.
