My self-summary
I'm Anish. I'm a tech entrepreneur based in LA.

I believe that the universe itself is conscious in a way we can never truly understand. It is engaged in a search for meaning, so it breaks itself apart, investing its own consciousness in every form of life. We are the universe, trying to understand itself.
What I’m doing with my life
Accumulating tokens and cornering various markets. But this is just on the outside. On the inside I am different (as I suspect all insides are).

In my spare time I enjoy tugging my beard and pondering the thingness of things. Sometimes I will write manifestos on the implications of thinginess, and consider turning those implications into an avant-garde reality tv show. I sometimes get drunk and demand money from the homeless to make my dream a reality. I'm tired of everyone shooting down my dreams!

Needless to say, my insides have other hobbies.
I’m really good at
Surrealist zoology, capoeira*, word play, super smash bros 64, juggling a soccer ball, being best friends with other peoples' cats, catching absurdities, wrestling them to the ground, acquiring their secrets. Oh! I am also adept at not talking about myself. Also really good at handstands, ice cream, and watching adventure time.

*Capoeira: Afro-brazilian martial art featuring dancing music and acrobatics. (Widely regarded as the sexiest martial art.)
The first things people usually notice about me
I guess I get a lot of compliments about how many teeth I have. I'm not proud of it.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
No time for any of this. I wake up in the morning and eat a breakfast of contracts, followed by paperwork* and invoices for lunch, and bic pens and pleated slacks** for dinner. Thank God for "coffee" to support my fast-paced modern lifestyle!***

(I could do without arbitrary lists)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
-myth, narrative, and metaphor
-the world as external will
-movement and cognitive frames
-natural rhythms
-rad ecology
-monism vs. mechanism, mechanization, brand-worship, levels of being, luddites, transcendant experience, etc
-spin kicks
-blah blah blah
On a typical Friday night I am
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm an adult. I make my own airplane noises when I eat with a spoon.
You should message me if
you are a practicing radical,
you know how to talk good,
this section of your profile isn't full of negativity


if you want to help me with my reality tv show, starting with its title. the theme of the first episode will be "what constitutes 'thinginess?" in other words, "what makes a thing different from a non-thing, or no-thing?" furthermore, how can things perform verbs? This is important!
