About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To have fun and enjoy the Human Experience while learning about this wonderful Universe :)

ABOUT ME

NOT FOR SALE: the reason for having 'ruined' my main picture is so you can hear about the last changes in CS. You can read below on my 'Opinion on the CouchSurfing.org Project'. Please, give it a look ;)

And relevant discussions here: http://www.couchsurfing.org/group_read.html?gid=45507&post=10039182

I have always been, still am, and forever will be an eternal lover and wonderer of Nature in its so many beautiful forms, shapes and settings. I think I've always had an enormous curiosity about a very wide spectrum of things in general, particularly about the functioning of systems of any kind, especially those of Nature (and so I'm really into natural sciences, strongly interested and attracted to most of them), or to study about anything at all. Would I appear as a serious person though, I guess that would totally be overbalanced or undermined by my total crazyness! They mix reaaally well anyway ;) (Muahahaha, I juuuust love that fact!!)

I love to start up new things from zero!! Many times I find myself following some direction and then abruptly getting interested, in addition, in some other one which I never fixed my eyes into before, and diving into it till getting into deep waters. That happened with arts (particularly music), physics, maths, and now I've started becoming pretty interested in languages as well!

Certainly, I love meeting and being with people, either stranger or familiar, but it's also accurate to add that I am a person who has always been comfortable with being in solitude (not for a long time though :P)

And about travelling: I was never really interested in it, but that has changed dramatically now, undoubtedly thanks to all of you people!! Soooo, hope to hear from you too!

PHILOSOPHY

To try as much as possible not to dismiss ANY sort of thing/being/experience/etc. as non interesting, by means of eliminating, whenever possible, mental prejudices.

I love to think of metaphysics issues (though still not systematically, first I wanna learn more maths, logic and physics, etc.) and I tend to believe there's a higher Intelligence inherent in the whole Universe, or Nature if you want, which should be related to God if such entity exists, and that we can learn more about it by the study of Science. I just made up this sentence as a starting point for my fuzzy thoughts on this fuzzy issue heh...

AND ALSO: Teamwork is essential - it allows you to blame someone else!

BUT: butt.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I very much enjoy meeting travellers passing by, or meeting new people in general. If you come to Rosario I'll be glad to host you (feel free to ask anytime!) and/or show you around some places of my city whenever time allows; the best ice creams, etc. ;)

On the other hand, I'll be very happy also to meet locals when I get my chance to travel!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've been using HC and had this account since many years ago but never used it until this year (2010). I was able to meet through them many interesting people visiting my country, as well as in HC/CS meetings; I also had the pleasure of hosting many people, and being hosted as well!

All of these were very happy and memorable experiences and I'm looking forward to continue having these kind of meetings in the future! And I strongly recommend you to experience it too!!

Interests

I LOOOOVE MUSIC (both composing/playing it and listening to it)! CINEMA!! Taking photos, drawing, writing, arts in general, lately been really interested and been studying about LANGUAGES (and also started with my German). SCIENCES: earth sciences, neuroscience, psychology, philosophy, mathematics, physics, astronomy: to see magic within reality...

SPORTS!! Athletics, CYCLING, HIKING, walking, jogging, to OBSERVE the birds and the rest of Nature's creatures (including humans!) Reading, whistling and making other weird sounds with my voice :P, having fun...

Meeting new people, learning new things, studying new areas of knowledge, to wonder about Existence and the ultimate reality beneath all things...

That and many other things for sure; I'm interested in meeting YOU as well! (Even if you're an Alien, with or without a human suit ;))

Music, Movies & Books

MOVIES: Traffic, Rabbit-proof fence, Getting home, Ulzhan, Gattaca, Das experiment, The ninth gate, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Goodbye Lenin, Underground, Twelve Monkeys,Dead Poets Society, En la ciudad sin límites, Breaking and Entering, Land and Freedom, The Shawshank Redemption, Erik the Viking, Woody Allen's, and European films mostly, among many others I wouldn't remember now hehe...

MUSIC: Medieval music, classical music, Bach, Contemporary music: Debussy, Ravel, Satie, Villa-Lobos, Bartok, Prokofiev, John Cage, Leo Brouwer, Kapustin, Roland Dyens. Jazz, Pat Metheny, Bossanova, film soundtracks, world music, popular music, and many other kinds of music surely!

BOOKS: The Lord of the Rings volumes, The Silmarillion, Cosmos (from Sagan!), 1984, Animal Farm, science books and some others I guess...

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Hmmm, watching the sky and clouds from a plane! I always love to watch them from the ground, but this takes a dramatically different perspective (a tridimensional one yeaaah.)

Having had lucid dreams, experiencing unprecedented mental states or feelings as well as "paranormal" events in dreams, and some less intense in actual life. (But I never used any substances for that, just for the record hehe...)

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you some Physics and lots of Mathematics, Spanish (we can exchange languages for sure, add me through any of my IM usernames! I'm looking for people speaking German now :)), or help you out with your computer (unless you know much more than people know by average heh).

It'd be great to cook with you (me doing mostly the learning part hehe), as I still have lots of things to learn! Anything at all you can share from your experiences, which allowed you to embrace that knowledge, will glady be listened by me ears and mind; I always want to learn, learn, learn and learn, new and old things too (there are always different ways of seeing old things, many times at least), I want to lead a life of learning!

I can share you all my music collection!! And I can also show you some of my own music. I can also share the air in the room with you, hehe. See, I'm not selfish :P
