All questions that interest me have something to do with the human mind and human interactions – more technically, something along the lines of psychology, cognitive science, sociology, anthropology, law, politology, cultural studies etc. Why do we think, feel and act the way we do? How should we change personally and as the whole humankind?
I enjoy thinking about positive development trajectories for humankind. I think cyncysim is counter-productive. I am excited when I meet people who want to make something in the world at least a little bit better, who believe they are capable of doing it, and who actually do it. For me, the definition of a better world is one in which there is more and more of 1) truth (knowledge, understanding, integrity); 2)kindness (not at the expense of anybody, but as positive-sum-games), 3) bliss. The more any future trajectory includes ALL three of these, the better this trajectory is.
I strongly believe that that which can be destroyed by the truth should be. Only rarely do I meet people who require from themselves and offer to other people a similar level of extreme honesty. These meetings I truly cherish.
If you write to me, please don't tell me where you are from or that you would like to see Tallinn and meet some local people. This all is unimportant/ obvious. Please write to me, what exact topics would you like have conversations on, and how they tie to what I have written here.
