To find myself in the people and places of the world
I am an easy going guy. I can get along with mostly anyone. I prefer to be around people that are willing to try new things and are critical thinkers. I like cynical humor and randomness. I like computers, alternative and progressive thinking, and am especially interested in cognitive science and the missing connection between human thought and computer thought. But I usually spend my time lounging around unless otherwise motivated by the great magnet.
I believe life is similar to a river. Some people struggle their whole lives swimming upstream attempting to stay within the familiar portion of the river where there is no danger. Others swim haphazardly down stream often encountering unexpected rapids or waterfalls. I try to swim as little as possible allowing the currents of the Earth to do what they will with me and trusting the path of least resistance. I have combined eastern religions with personal philosophies and experiences to create this semi Taoist philosophy.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I am currently traveling and do not have my own place. My CS address is my parents house which isnt really near anything interesting but they do have a seperate house that is often available for couch surfers. I am also there between travels.
I have not yet couch surfed but I have heard many good things from other travelers I have met and am excited to try it soon
IE the process of thought as created by everything from neurons and chemicals to culture and region
