At times I may seem contradicting, ambiguous and vague. Ask me what I mean, I will provide a defense/explanation for anything unclear.
A self proclaimed Zennist
Stresses pragmatic and existential positions in argument
Stresses the importance of psychology, and related fields, in the naturalizing of philosophy

23 years old from New Jersey (Just outside of Newark).

My goal in life is to simplify various multidimensional concepts so anyone can understand and find use with them. These concepts include but are not limited to true globalization (singularity), politics/corporation partnership, religious belief, philosophy (psychology), group dynamics in thought, and of course education. All in the pursuit of creating revolutionary education lessons and theories (paradigms) that can allow students (and my readers) to adapt to their environment and the ever changing future while maintaining critical thought values.
My extreme passion is the cognitive understanding of the human mind-brain.
"Artist, poet, physicist, astronomer, dancer, musician, mathematician are captives from an older time, a different kind of society, in which, ultimately, they were the creators of all primary values."
- Kenneth Rexroth (San Francisco Letter)
The above Beatnik is responding to the notion of how we should look collectively at the way information is centralized. To not just let academics and private communities dictate values of what we know, learn and study. But determine that for oneself on one's own terms, freely. How this is done is by constant concern of where the values of society come from and are formed; questioning the foundation in which culture is molded.
". . . We should be on our guard not to overestimate science and scientific methods when it is a question of human problems; and we should not assume that experts are the only ones who have a right to express themselves on questions affecting the organization of society."
- Albert Einstein (Why Socialism?)
An idea worth spreading
Talk to strangers,
do not fear anything,
and never be afraid to say "I don't know,"
Don't judge people on how they look,
or anything else tangible,
judge people on what they preach and question.
