My self-summary
I think that one of my major character traits is my thirst for knowledge. I'm a voracious reader, in a wide variety of subjects: math,science, history, politics, philosophy, law, etc. My username is reference to my appetite for ideas: I'm continually seeking out different ways of looking at the world and trying to understand them, even if I don't agree with them. I'm a big fan of science fiction, because at its best, that genre is about stepping outside of all the assumptions and things taken for granted and imagining a radically different world; it's about examining what's truly real about the world, and what is simply particular to the circumstances that we find ourselves in. Seeing the world clearly and without intellectual blinders is very important to me, and if I think that someone is presenting arguments that are flawed, I will point that out, even if I agree with their position. I am a big fan of math, because I think that it is the purest expression of truth; it's not just arithmetic, it's the formalization of knowledge in general.

I also think of myself as intelligent and considerate with a strong moral center and a good sense of humor, but then, who doesn't?

You should message me if
Good reasons to message me:
-You find me interesting
-You've spotted a typo in my profile
-You have a comment

Bad reasons to message me:
-You wish to discuss the sale of male enhancement pills
-You represent a recently deceased wealthy individual who left me a large sum of money, and you can get it to me once you have my bank account information and perhaps a small fee
-You'd like me to cash a check for you, and wire the proceeds, minus a reasonable fee for my troubles, to your account
The two of us
