Five words that describe you:

Intellectual, Curious, Open-Minded, Tolerant, Patient

Hobbies and Interests?

Reading non-fiction, listening to music, running

Something random:

I think like an atheist, but I believe in God. The problem is religion. My beliefs can be described as Seldonism, which I define as a variant of my Hindu faith influenced by the science fiction of Isaac Asimov.

What is the meaning of life?

The meaning and purpose of life is to make a difference in the world before we leave it forever. Heaven is leaving behind positive memories of our time on this planet. Hell would be being remembered for making things worse.

Introduction

I am a 40-year-old graduate of MIT who moved to the Baltimore area at the beginning of 2011. I work for The MITRE Corporation. My interest in philosophy ranges from Hindu Vedanta to Kant, Hegel, Nietzsche, Aquinas, Popper, and Political Philosophy.
