I like to observe the details in surrounding . Human mind is an amazing thing, it can perceive its own reality ( quantum mechanically ) . It is worth of spending time to retrain the brain and look at the world with new lenses.
A discussion on anthropology, ethics, philosophy, politics over a glass of wine ( okay , may be two ) is a desirable social life for me. It also helps to keep the separation between my job and other pursuits.
I don't watch (or own) television or play video games. There are far more interesting objects in this world and beyond to talk about. However, if you are into television and movies that is perfectly fine. I do believe everyone finds their own 'mojo' and others ( responsible adults ;) ) are not allowed to be judgemental.
Paying attention to details ( macro photography , latest interest )
Hiking, camping, reading, photography, cooking, wine tasting - stuffs to take control over my Telomeres ;)
I probably belong to Existentialism school. Living with free will ( while fully aware of Kierkegaard and Sartre ).
( existentialism thought again)
Godel, Escher, Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid
Thinking Fast and Slow - Daniel Kahnman
Music - classic rock
world music ( i lived in multiple continents so 'world' is a geographical concept unlike Football /Hockey/Poker world series ;) )
what happens when one is no longer 'living' but the the digital profile is still active in social sites like okc , facebook ete. Someone is 'liking' that profile or sending a msg. How the real/unreal semantics works in that situation.
the other type of thinking is from blue cheese ( penicillium infested ;) )
the other thing i think a lot is about what is my food ( trying to eliminate any kind of additives / flavonoids in any quantity ). that means, i am a believer in farm-to-table with no man-in-the-middle meddling in the business.
And of course , drink wine ( non negotiable ).
