Evolve into "homines ludentes"!
"That which is above is from that which is below, and that which is below is from that which is above, working the miracles of one". Hermes the trismegistus
We came from a black womb, we'll end up in a black tomb. The small part in the middle is called life and it's inner form is binary. There's an eternal dialectic in everything. We never go somewhere, we just try to return to our own somewhere in a purposeless road that nothing can be re-obtained. The last and only thing we have to do is to play, to love and fool around. If you read any book of Vilem Flusser you will be able to see whom I consider as my mental father.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Trying to formulate the im-possible. One man's waste is another man's soap. Having spare space, information and time (well, i'm not sure for the last one!) means that i can give it to the people!
My previous couchsurfing experience can be found at www.couchsurfing.org/nasta. Nasta was my lovely roomate and we shared the same profile for three or four years so you can check her profile to see what is my cs experience! Seen everything. People biking, driving, walking, doing nothing, loving, exploring, touring, travelling and staying settled even if they are many kilometers away from their hometown. If you show respect you 're gonna get respect.
Finding greatness in small things. Extracting new out of old. Considering everything as one. Considering all the possible and impossible aspects of one. Fantastic realism. Information theory. Photography. Rap based poetry. 1914 style dadaism. 1924 style surrealism. 1957 style situationism. Throat singing. Sampling. Lo-fi music editing. Alchemy. Hermetism. Shamanism. Practically, I am doing a master on Information Philosophy and Cultural Dissemination, have a home recording studio where I make sound experiments with my voice, mouth harps and little intruments, I sample from old vinyls, field recordings with an eccentric taste and I go out photographing strangers and then spend two hours working on photoshop collages.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Ate a vegetarian chimichanga and re-ontologised myself thru it.
Teach, Learn, Share
Expect the unexpected, give form to the impossible. Love and play!
I can teach how to play the mouth harp and how to rap, photoshop, use nikon cameras, mix with fruity loops, trigger your philosophical instincts, and how to make creative use of a very short attention span! Eager to share ideas on veggie cooking and wicked and weird stories from my life and to learn from the others' life.
