Learn, evolve, meet people, discover
I find it hard to describe myself because I'm in a continual change and I don't want or can pin down my personality. There are to much interest, sometimes to much to cope with them all. I like to think about most things and I have a strong philosophy about life, I know where I want to go and what I want to do. I am a free spirit and intent to stay that way while traveling throughout this life and the world.
Also I don't drink, smoke anymore and I prefer not to eat meat but if there is no other option I would not make a big deal of it.
I think all of us should be doing what we really want to be doing, following your uttermost excitement. It would be a pity if you don't because those things are the only things you should be doing and bring you the most success in life.
Nothing is fixed or static, everything is an continual change, so there is no use for radicalism. I think everyone creates their own reality and view it from a different side, which should be a good thing. We should embrace individualism and individuation, it's a creative manifestation of your true self. There is never one way or one solution, it's always "and" and never "or". For that reason I can say I believe in something because I believe in it and not necessary because it "is" that way, fixed in an external reality.
I'm living a life of travel and going with the natural flow, I trust in Carl Jung and Synchronicity (it proved itself to me). If you listen to your heart (sub-conscious, deeper self...) things will come to you at the right moment in your life, don't work against yourself and what you want, but go with it.

I can go on forever. But my main interest would be "spiritual" development and expressing yourself creatively.
I was in art school and I like to make a lot digital things: http://pieterjossa.tumblr.com/ but I also make non digital stuff like paintings and statues. I'm mostly concerned in making kitsch and assimilating the time I feel we live in. Digital is just a medium of expressing, like painting or writing, which for me fit these times, I can express myself in another reality/dimension which tends to replace the current reality we live in, that does not mean that I support it, I'm just here to point my own experiences out.
I grew up and worked in the kitchen for most of my life so I like to cook also. I've also done some graphic/programming/web/3d design.
Again I like a lot of things, I'll list some of them:
Movies: Holy mountain, Underground 1995, Blow up, David Linch, Lars von trier: favorite movie: Idiots, Zardoz, Wings of desire, El topo, Festen, Upstream color, Holy motors, Groundhog day, Tree of life, American born killers, Paprika, Akira, Dogtooth, El topo, Bjork movies, Under the skin (to sad but good), Nymphomaniac, Dogville, The grand Budapest hotel, Bananas, Vertigo, Dead poet society (oh man)...
Music: Elliot Smith, Ricardo Villalobos, Minilogue, Nirvana, Richi Hawtin, Andy Stott, Mozart, Forest Swords, Ohm, Ravi Shankar, Caribou, Immortal technique, Ravi Shankar, Joy Division, Sonic Youth, Lou reed, MGMT, Lebanon Hanover, Blaze, Linea Aspera - Malarone (such a good song), Lusine - By this sound, Connan Mockasin - Forever dolphin love...
Books: Hermann Hesse, Robert Anton Wilson, Bhagavad Gita, The art of memetics, Occult books, Esoteric books, Quantum Physics, Programming the humand computer (what a book), A lot of Carl Jung, Mantak Chia, The magus of java, NLP, Transformational Psychology, Tony buzan, Nietsche, Carl Saga, Amit Goswami, George Orwell, Timothy Leary, Terence Mckenna, Allan Watts, Osho, Einstein, Nikola Tesla...
Synchronicity and synchronized with other people. Made some really good friends in a short amount of time.Had some lucid dreams, and talked with some people in it. Surprised myself with the idea that i was alive, the most obvious and the biggest surprise of them all. Felt the very deep emotions. Had the most crazy parties with the most crazy people, dancing until sunset with strangers. Spoken to death relatives in a lucid dream. Been saved by a street dog from other hostile dogs. Being lost in Bangkok.
I would really like to learn from people who are still close to nature and go with the natural flow. There are lot's of things i would like to learn and hope I'll find people who can use me and i can learn from them. I think these kind of exchanges should be the new model for school and life, I never liked traditional schools very much. I learn a lot more and a lot faster in a positive environment where I'm working for a cause that feels beneficial and actually goes somewhere by seeing results.
Love, peace and manifestation
