About Me

I would describe myself as low-maintenance and polite, especially when I am a guest. I am always clean I swear! I like to have long and deep discussions and actively socialize, but sometimes I need to "recharge the batteries" and need silent time and quiet talk.

I am peaceful and avoid stupid people and dangerous situations, but I am not afraid of anything. I shun large congregations and big parties with noise and loud drunken mob, although I sometimes go to festivals. Prefer indoor dinner, walk in a park, watch a movie, bonfire party with a few people etc..

In respect to my worldview, I am political nothing but I have many convictions. I am a dissident. I have dramatically changed my outlook on some things. My convictions are however not strict. For example although I have a strong conviction that industrial animal farming is entirely wrong, I will have milk in my coffee and eat a cheese sandwich if nothing else is available. But most of the time I am vegan.

Another example is my conviction on religions. Although I believe that monotheistic religions like Islam and Christianity are delusive and should not be taken seriously, I do practice some religions sometimes because it is nice. I can sing Knight Templars songs such as "Da Pacem Domine" as well as Sahasranamam to Lord Vishnu - because it's beautiful in sound and meaning.

My favorite food is jalfrezi, madras, vindaloo, vegan spaghetti bolognese (with soya mince), mexican potato-bean semi-mash (I invented this dish) and margherita ciabatta or panini. I can cook all of them!

My favorite plants are Crataegus laevigata, Atropa belladonna, Entada rhedii, Nuphar lutea, Ricinus communis, Mimosa pudica, but all plants are wonderful.

My favorite drinks are lager beer, full bodied dry wine, whiskey, mead, matcha tea, chai tea.

The most fascinating objects in astrophysics: black holes and pulsars (that's why my nickname is "Magnetar").

Interests

I have many interests but most serious are: science, wildlife (ecosystems), muay thai (fighting arts), yoga, remedies (especially making my own essential oil blend), music, cosmos (astrophysics), playing an electric guitar. I recently started longboard skating and I love it! Also, I have an account on researchgate and hitchwiki, where I edit stuff.

Spiritually -wise I believe in the healing and mind-expanding power of natural psychedelics. My favorite deities are Shiva, Krishna (Vishnu) and Brahma.

Music, Movies, and Books

Music: Rosa Crux, Egorythmia, Fear Factory, Marduk, Antonio Vivaldi, Summoning, Children of Bodom, Samael, Vanessa Mae, especially her Toccatta Fugue videoclip ;)

Film: All with Clint Eastwood, Tony Jaa, Jet Li; The Simpsons; thriller and crime films.

Books: I rarely read books, because I get frustrated with all these introductions and lengthy but a bit pointless deductions and the worst is when they repeat in the book! That's why I prefer to search for specific and well-defined information. Those books I read from beginning to end I could count on the fingers of my hands! That's also kind of an achievement. I get my knowledge mostly from peer-reviewed articles, encyclopedias or just read the chapter of interest in a book. The books I have read fully are: Light on yoga (BKS Iyengar), Liber Null and Psychonaut (Peter Carroll), Secrets of the Ninja (Ashida Kim)... and a couple of compulsory books for the primary school lol My favorite books are the ones that are very thin.
