|Why are you here?|
The same reason everybody else is here, I suppose... I want to live a life free of stress like our long gone ancestors (well, almost free of stress, I guess).
Also, I don't want my kids (or my grandkids) to have to return to cannibalism when we destroy all other resources that all that will be left to eat is ourselves. Because that's the future (as I see it) if we continue in this direction...
|Any other personal information/resources/advice/ideas to share?|
Well, it's been 4 years since I wrote the reasons why I'm here, so it's time for a little update. First things first, I was able to distance myself from the 'taker economic system' by becoming a freelancer-designer and so far, so good - decent money and six months a year of free time to pursue other matters of my interest (anything from evolutionary psychology, philosophy to etology and quantum mechanics, basketball and climbing mountains, writing screenplays). Also, not getting up early in the morning EVERY morning is a BIG plus of this lifestyle.
As for the advice... BE SKEPTICAL! Don't take anyone's word for granted. Check the evidence for every claim and remember that extraordinary claims (like UFOs, ghosts, ressurection and so on...) require extraordinary evidence.
So far, scientific method gives the best results when establishing the truth and scientific skepticism suits my worldview and the facts and events during my life until this moment.
