My self-summary
Kierkegaard's got me thinking this website is a bad idea.

I'm torn between worlds, pivoting between them in perpetuity.

I love academia, absurdity, art, culture, and all kinds of great and strange things. Say hi. I'm much goofier than the tone this dry profile takes on. Proximity and similarity are what make websites like this worthwhille. It's an empirical fact about "liking"!
What I’m doing with my life
I am a cognitive science major, an eternal student, a morally sound deviant, an abyss-starer, an explorer painting with strange colors and singing in alien tones.
I’m really good at
my art imitates crime.

Lawrence, Carl Sagan, Baudrillard, Luis Borges, Immanuel Kant, Derrida, Foucault, Kafka, Orwell, and plenty more i can't think of.
The six things I could never do without
Music
Kindness
Kids in the Hall

Friendship
Liberty
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Property was thus appall’d,
That the self was not the same;
Single nature’s double name
Neither two nor one was call’d.
Reason, in itself confounded,
Saw division grow together

"Better hang your dead palace than have a living home to lose"
On a typical Friday night I am
Socializing or spending time at home researching/reading for fun.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
“The secret, shameful things are most terribly beautiful.”

Once in an social/academic/experimental/mythopoetic adventure, I was initiated into a strange occult "secret society", and stayed for a while because it was interesting to explore [post]modern disenchantment and mind-muck in general and had fun, so I kicked it for a while. You'd be surprised how disenchanted people really are and how far mental gymnastics go. I wouldn't lie to you.
You should message me if
you can aptly walk between worlds or have something interesting to talk about.

you will also suffer for authenticity; especially to the point that:

"[You]...dare somehow to back away from ironic watching, [you] have the childish gall actually to endorse and instantiate single-entendre principles. [You] treat of plain old untrendy human troubles and emotions in U.S. life with reverence and conviction. [You] eschew self-consciousness and hip fatigue...[and are willing] to risk accusations of sentimentality, melodrama. Of overcredulity. Of softness. Of willingness to be suckered by a world of lurkers and starers who fear gaze and ridicule above imprisonment without law."

I like kind eyes. If you are flaunting your breasts or ass, please do not bother. Also if you are steeped in juvenalia, do not message me.

If you have disintegrated and reconstructed yourself.

If you like masturbatory Ivy league crap.
If you hate masturbatory Ivy League crap.
