My self-summary
List of interests:
feminism, polyamory, brains, ai, physics, disrupting aging, post scarcity society, language, frisbee, cards, board games, open relationships, dividing by zero, reading every day📚, math, jetfuelcantmeltsteelbeams, cuddling, climbing, karaoke

I get along very well with people who are technically minded (physics math chemistry engineering types). People who want to fix problems. And people who live to wax philosophic.

I'm in an ethically open relationship and am looking for new partners who are okay with that. I am also super interested in finding new platonic friends on here.

I don't drink, and derive more enjoyment from hanging with people who do same, but this is totally not a requirement. I also have great times with ravers and anyone who loves to cuddle.

I like talking with people in technical, political, and philosophical realms. Let's talk about books you've read on queer theory, or economics, or non-pop-sci science. Anything really. I love to read.

I like riding bikes at night.
I like playing games of the board and card varieties.

I am inquisitive, bodacious, and happy-go-lucky
I am also vegan, sex positive, and feminist.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a tutor. I teach people how to think more clearly. I love watching people's faces as they dunk their head in the bucket of revelation.

I'm a life long learner, currently learning data science, West coast swing, and some chemistry. Please tell me about something cool I don't know I wanna learn about yet!

I'm doing stuff. I'm going to the bouldering gym or going backpacking or hiking or contra dancing.

Also I don't drink or do drugs. It's fine if you do, but it's extra points if you don't. I'm very interested in trying hallucinogenics at some point.
I’m really good at
Being open to where you are emotionally, and adjusting the actions I take accordingly.

Having a reliably good temperament. Ameliorating bad situations.
I strive to be a clear communicator.

I strongly seek people who can help me become more than I currently am; those who can offer insights and help me expand.

I do outdoor things occasionally, and have done more than 40 hours of each of the following: skiing, skating, biking, bike repairs, rock climbing, fixing bikes, hiking, kayaking, and canoeing.

I tend to catch on quick to new activities.
The first things people usually notice about me
I get a lot of confused looks at first. I don't like rules I find unimportant. I do like openness, communication, and trust.

I'm pun friendly.

I am a touch slut and a cuddle monkey. I like hugs and head rubs and the like. It's really exciting to be cuddly with new people. It's really comforting to be cuddly with friends.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
A friend once told me "the purpose of art is to shed light the human plight." But from my interpretation of this, I feel like some pretty technical books meet the art requirements. Anyways, here's some buzzword soup:

infinite Jest, Daniel Kahneman, Steven Pinker, Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality, A People's History of the United States, Noam Chomsky, Naomi Klein, Nonviolent Communication.

These probably fit the definition of art much less, yet I still found meaning in these authors and works:
Philip K Dick, Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell, Asimov's Foundation Trilogy, Neal Stephenson, Jonathan Safran Foer, Ben Goldacre's Bad Science.

When I watch movies (not often) or TV (a rarity), I most look for new ideas and connections between ideas. Miyazaki's The Wind Rises fit me, likewise the TV show Black Mirror.
The six things I could never do without
- Understanding intent versus literalness
- Other great minds around me
- Learning more, from you, from books, and from my mistakes
- A smile that says, 'I see what you did there'
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Recently I've spent tons of time thinking about how the future looks, and what I can do to help it become the best future it can be. I am excited about the end of aging. The end of tedium. A dawn of creativity.

A sample of things I think about might be:
gender issues, societal roles, veganism, physics, philosophy, math, language, function of governance and government, the role of schooling vs learning, finding meaning.

I'm interested in all manner of life's puzzling questions, and can sometimes find answers.

What generic systems of thought let people find self-consistent truth without being stuck in logical fallacy? How can we help ourselves and one another escape our fallacies?

Below isn't something i think on often, but it's interesting and also the kind of thing I'd like people to show me if they come across. Here are the sounds of the Southern Ocean. I think they're glorious.
On a typical Friday night I am
Boring question. New question:
What's your favorite piece of internet?

Long term favorites have been
Tim Minchin's Storm 10 mins
The Greatest Speech Ever Made 3.5 mins
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
My phone has about 3 days of audiobooks/podcasts on it and about an hour of music.
