My self-summary
If an oyster was to write an autobiography, you will solely hear about the pearl. I would not be able to do that, since I don't usually talk about my pearls.
I don't play pokemon, but don't mind if you do for I judge people by the content of their character, not the size of their pokeballs.
What I’m doing with my life
Working on my PhD thesis and drinking to cope with my PhD thesis.
Update: Just finished my PhD, so you are welcome to enthusiastically claim "I'm dating a Doctor"
I’m really good at
I'm a jack of all trades, master of some. My hobbies include; photography, paddle boarding, plays, symphonies, opera, podasts, wall climbing, biking with my pooch, badmington, chess, museums, zoo, soccer, guitar, concerts, sketching, reading, pool, vinyls, astronomy, Rubik's cube etc etc etc.

I have a novelty seeking mind and I am looking for a curious soul to explore the cosmos of consciousness and self consciousness
The first things people usually notice about me
How cute my pooch is. I go where he goes and viceversa.
Update: my pooch passed away with a whimper in the middle of the night. He is missed daily.

The six things I could never do without
Consciousness:
Cogito ergo sum, sums my view on consciousness and purpose. The meaning of life is what your mind means it to be.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
People watching sheds a bright light on the very random evolutionary engrained behaviors that undermine our free will; which desceptively makes us feel unique amidst beasts.
On a typical Friday night I am
I escape reality through art; my weekends encompass a wide range of artsy activities.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I think I'm special, just like everyone else.... also once I bought "The Freewheeling Bob Dylan" vinyl solely because the cover read "360 sound", now I have two "and can't tell the difference in sound between them.
You should message me if
Message me if you feel like you don't belong. Ideally this would qualify every person, since nobody should feel at ease in an existence devoid of coherent purpose. However we lead complacent lives in a chaotic, random, artificial society and not even yours truly is immune to this compliance. In that case, message me if you want to do purposeless activities in a purposeless existence.
