My self-summary
If you send me a message that says "Hi, how are you?" etc, you will be ignored, blocked or shouted at. Also please don't message me if you are into full-blown monogamy - I am not.

I don't see "likes" so message me if you want an interaction.

Lookin to make friends and see where it goes.

Anarchically minded. Cynic of epic proportions. Highly intelligent and self-aware. Liberated nihilist with a mood disorder. Rational, logical and procedural thinker. Honest to the point of self-destruction. Hippy existentialist. Lover of nature, saviour of drowning bugs. Ukuleleist and singer. Writer of poetry and sci-fi. Straightforward and blunt; and expect the same from others.

I value self-awareness and an ability to rationalise emotion.

I am very interested in - Psychology, philosophy, evolution and behavioural biology.

But also have strong interests in - Language and literature, art, music, astrophysics, zoology, geology, geography, biology, horticulture, meteorology.

I have special fascination with moral philosophy and human behaviour from a zoological perspective, empathy vs compassion.

Contemplating the future in relation to science, technology, environmentalism and sustainable food production systems. sustainable communal systems and whether they could work.

AI and it's further reaching possibilities - what it means in regards to the concept of "the self" and moral philosophical questions.
What I’m doing with my life
Figuring a lot of stuff out.. I hope.

Trying to be more in control of my mind and pain.

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,GTA Online and have a Minecraft Sever so if you wanna play, let me know!), watching cartoons, reading, watching academic lectures, sitting in quiet contemplation and trying to work everything out from an objective rational standpoint. Just started a Python course.

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, playing the Ukulele or PC games
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 cause me a lot 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 can cope with being around someone in chronic pain.

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.

You don't think I'm a cunt already - of if you do, you like it.
