I take a lot of photographs, run a half-dozen websites, write a lot, read a lot, and think too much. I like things that are beautiful. Actually, I can't do without them.

Oh, by the way...
For some reason, we have developed five senses, through which we can perceive an entirely arbitrary spectrum of information we erroneously believe to represent "everything there is". We invented language so we could share the random fluctuations of our brains' electrical fields with each other. We can create half-altered copies of ourselves, and enjoy doing this to such an extent that practicing it or thinking about it consumes the majority of our lifespan. We're on a giant rock, surrounded by other living things that can't talk to us, and are being flung around at speeds we can't even comprehend, while immersed in an internal world of symbols that have no natural correlates. And we have no idea why any of this is happening or what it means.

Doesn't that blow your mind?

If not, I'll talk to you when it does.
