What The Hell Is This?

I guess this is where I’m supposed to pitch something. Well, I really don’t have the energy for that, but I will tell you about my interests and then you can see whether they align in any way with yours.

The thing that interests me most of all is the nature of our existence. That doesn’t mean endless navel-gazing, but just the statement of obvious facts like: our main driver is concerned with survival and procreation, we can’t step outside our senses, and life seems to have no meaning. There are also many questions: is there any such thing as absolute morality, does the word “truth” really mean anything, how does the structure of our mind impact the way we understand the world? - and so on.

The answers to some of these questions can be quite alarming, but I’ve found that the more alarming the answer the more freeing it is too. So, maybe by now, you have some notion as to whether this content will appeal to you. The standard blurb is below:
