My name is Austin Grady Jones, I'm twenty years old, a father, futurist activist, and amateur researcher who aspires to one day be a professional one. I haven't always lived the life I do now. Growing up with drug addicted parents I was abused, molested, and neglected. This environment didn't cause but did have an impact on my drug addiction in my teen years. I've sobered up since then and learned from my experiences. Even though my life wasn't easy in the early parts it still was easier than most on this planet. I've come to terms with everything that has happened and if anything, It's given me the perspective I have today. I wouldn't change anything. My mostly highly regarded aims in life are as followed. Number one priority, give my son the childhood I didn't have and show him the world then watch him choose what he wants with everything at his disposal. Number two, I want to reform the American public educational system. I have a mapped out curriculum that entails practices of bio/neurofeedback into elementary schools. Basically just emotional therapy, cognitive exercises, abstract thought building, and individual analysis. All of this without changing the system too much, that's my goal for an easy and agreeable transition. I can't leave out my other goals in life which are related to physics and what we know about gravity. Otherworldly views and how science is a religion all in of itself. Peace outside of war and why ending lives is a cruel and inefficient way of solving conflict. One of my most important wants in life is that I want to see our species make it off this planet and one day able to sustain life without celestial bodies.
