About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Write a book

ABOUT ME

I'm close-minded and hardgoing. And I really hate to travel.

PHILOSOPHY

I like the ideas behind the American Transcendentalism movement, Determinism, Neo-Marxism and political realism. But I wouldn't go all inn with any of them.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

When I was fifteen I swam in the ocean at night with a girl I had a crush on, and that summer the ocean was filled with bioluminescence. It felt like swimming with the cosmos, in both senses of the word.
