What we're about

Utra-specific niche market, if your brand of being in the Anthropocene age is transpersonal, just kidding I don't know what that means, but I just googled it, and, okay, sure, and also, you think a lot, enough to know that thinking lives in conjunction with feeling dynamics because people aren't rational, we're relational! Just kidding again, but again, yeah, sure... pretty relevant jingo, interrelational! I'm not real good with words as you can see/read.

Anyway, I did meet one person this way, so now I am trying for two! (Especially since it turns out she lives in a nordic country and way different timezone). I'm the kind of person who would have no friends because of a lack of common ground, but it turns out I have known a few people who fit a set of ultra-specific characteristics that aren't common currently, but I expect will be more so potentially in the future.

Not like I'm so smart or anything, I have areas of quick intelligence and areas of slow intelligence (ie. I can be a very slow learner and not very quick on the uptake in many instances!). I kinda feel like a conceptual artist type minus the artist; I'm branding myself as a conceptual perceiver, mi amigo. Just kidding again. I have a slightly better sense of humor irl, but humor is secondary to my main interest, and mostly just a carrier for information, but also a great emotional-release too. I tend to laugh my head off at a certain british brand of humor around awkwardly failing social convention.

Anyway, I basically know how to navigate the world, not well and usually not for an extended length of time, but in theory i could come to your party and not stick out like a sore thumb and in rare instances even make it more better. I'm also fine with people who do stick out negatively, I basically assume (extremely visibly aspergy? np) . My main issue is boredom which makes me sound like a dumb jerk, but I can't help liking what I like, and not liking what I don't like. I like what I like, y'know? And if I thought there was something bad about that, I'd work on it, and I have worked on being a lot more friendly and less uptight, y'know "accepting people" and the like. But it's like if you were really interested in a programming language that wasn't widely used... you just kind of like finding people who also really dig that language, cuz that's your thing, y'know?

Sorry for all the y'knows, I'm not actually 11 years old, although I will say I'm a big fan of kids and I find all that brain plasticity a super fun concept.

Anyways, there's tons of really cool amazing fun and interesting people in this city, but I'm looking for folks (a folk?) who likes that very specific programming language, or that ultra-narrow sub-sliver of botany (the study of the Northern Muriqu! i know, that's an animal not a plant so I guess that's Zoology, is jane goodall a zoologist? somehow that doesn't sound fancy enough).

And that field of interest is... like, well, i stay way far away from any new age type ppl (bless their hearts), and the humanities is a great field especially when cross-bred with the arts, and, I wish philosophy wasn't such a grimy (and often dry) word, but basically like the brain mixed with the emotions and maybe some body awareness thrown in; the main thing that distinguishes the characteristic that I find I'm most appreciative of is experientiality, a very first-person appreciation of relationship with ideas/concepts.
Musicians often connect with that quality, and that would be a distant second choice of social engagement and interaction of mine, except that if feels too confined coralled to just that one model of expression/being but I appreciate the level of personal engagement that can be a part of playing music and that's a/the quality that's very compelling for me. Obviously a basic foundation grounding in kindness to self and others is an important quality, and while it's maybe a key ingredient I'm not sure it's the key ingredient so much as an inevitable offshoot.

Anyway, it would be cool to meet someone or a couple of someones who were fun to talk to.

cheers,

futuristic démodé groks for fun and amusement

Needs a location

Yeah, I tried writing a bunch of words but I'm not a wordsmith. There's a certain kind of person I like, it's an uncommon type of person, why I don't know, people are embarrassed mostly or something (or just unfamiliar), we're social animals, shaped by our culture. Which is pretty amazing! Anyway, I have these little niche interests of ways of being, that are most habitat-friendly for me, or whatever. I'm mostly outside of every in-group, which at least puts me on equal footing in relation to people, hello ppl who's ways and cultures I do not grok! :-) but there is certain little sliver of people who i'm more in-group-y of-a-kind with... or at least, relate to a little better in ways that are more comfy for me. Sometimes it's just some old dude doing beadwork on a blanket alone somewhere. I mean, not exactly, but, sort of similar...? I'm a lot more, "ideas, what do they mean?" kind of thing, but it's basically beadwork on a blanket somewhere (atm nyc), alone or with others... being a social creature myself, I enjoy and learn from and am enriched by the company of other ppl... sometimes a whole lot!
