I like to observe the details in surroundings . Human mind is amazing, it can perceives its own reality and its limit thereof ( Bekenstein bound , anyone ? ) . It is worth of spending time to retrain the brain.
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 'stuff' in this world 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 ( for example - macro photography, micro expression )
Hiking, Camping, X-cty, Kayaking, Reading, Photography, Cooking, Wine tasting - typical stuffs to take control over my Telomeres ;)
I belong to Existentialism school of thought (think of Kierkegaard, Sartre)
Type III on Fitzpatrick scale.
( existential 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 ;) )
the other type of thinking is from blue cheese ( penicillium infested ;) )
but seriously, i think a lot is about what is in 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. i think there is a clinical diagnosis called Orthorexia for my type :D
And of course , drink wine ( non negotiable ).
