About Me


My main mission so far is educating myself as much as i can concerning the widest range of subjects possible, while trying to improve the world in direct and indirect ways. I'm also striving for conquering my instincts and for overcoming my flaws.


I'm a 26 years-old man living with my mom in the very same apartment that i've been living since my very first days of life. Despite every classification being limitating by nature and representing only a shadow of the broader and bigger self, i could say that i'm a self-centered-out-of-the-box-idealist-male-monogamic-thinker who's trying to prevail in a lazy, ignorant and apathic, but beaultiful world.

Other than this, i also sing Opera and Rock and Roll, paint, play video-games, read when i feel up to it, write poetry and prose and play baseball at Natal Solaris!

Not to mention the daily battles against my flaws, which are many!


What i'm practicing and thinking mostly about nowadays:

There is no need for the existence of a God in order for mankind to behave in colectivist, harmonious way. Despite being a species that is not particulary interested in the truth per se nor in achieving higher grounds in most things, mankind itself has a lot of space for improvement.

Unfortunately, this will take a lot of time, self-sacrifice and effort. 92% of the people you ever met in your life don't even take those questions into account, while being mostly worried about being happy and enjoying life. Nobody wants to see being alive as a job, to be frank.

Not to mention the delusions we live during life: believing we have some kind of special mission, believing we are more important in the grand scale of happenings than we are, believing that our problems are always somebody else's fault, believing that we may not give 100% of ourselves because God or destiny will make everything be allright.

Nobody said it was easy, actually.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Ah, life itself can be amazing. Being alive can be something so important and lucky with so much randomness!

Teach, Learn, Share

My commitment is to learn about all things and aspire for greatness and self-overcoming. I shall learn all things while maintaining the most skeptic and critical view possible.

I shall teach what i can in the best way to make the other understand the message. Subjects will vary.

The rest is vaudeville.
