about me:


just a host for a mere hundred trillion bacteria so they can fulfill their function in the biosphere...
this, in turn, is nothing but one small planet in a fifth category solar system of a mediocre galaxy, lost within the outskirts of the universe...
anthropocentric thinking is almost as preposterous as imagining a three-dimensional universe...
to think that I have any greater importance than any of the bacteria that inhabit my body, or the neighbor's puppy, or even the lab mice, is the height of existential myopia...
my importance for the planet, is in what my body does with the food that goes through me...
with regard to what I think of my greatness in this scenario, I leave my favorite quote as reply...

less than a black dot in the universe...

now I'll point out a few things about me in a nutshell:
I was born in the capital of the Republic of the United States of Brazil, but I don't consider myself a "carioca" [a person who's born in Rio de Janeiro]...
I'm close to 60...
I have lived in several cities, now live in Floripa...
I live with my best friend, who is a wife body-double...
I have a son who lives far away and I have not seen for many years...
I have a grand-daughter that also lives far away and I have never met...
my parents raised me according to their ideals, despite my attempts to be different...
I'm an ethnic mutt...
I speak Portuguese and Spanish as well...
I don't talk about religion and have no interest in what people believe in...
my political views are simple: "if it's related to politics, it's not worth it!"...
my sense of humor usually goes over almost everyone's head...
I maintain a minimalist style even for color, only black...
I don't smoke cigarettes but I have nothing against people smoking near me...
although I drink a little, I have nothing against drinking too much either, but I have everything against annoying drunken people trying to talk to me...
I don't agree that humans make pets out of any animal, even another human being...
I love the internet and the possibility of over-information...
I love suicide with intent, not the intent of suicide...
I'm not a sports fan and I don't think the World Cup or the Olympics are the pinnacle of humanity...
I only read books in digital format, and the existence of the universe is my main focus...
when I listen to music, it's either electronic or in languages I don't understand...
I barely watch television, most of the time it's connected to a computer that plays movies...
I love movies, I have many, many have been watched several times and my preferences are scy-fi and anti-social [bizarre]...
I have no preference for any cuisine... food is only fuel, and unfortunately necessary... although I have been known for loving sushi and french bread...
I'm 5' 8" tall, I have few very long gray hair, brown eyes, medium type, tattoos on arms and back, piercings on the ears and nipples...
what attracts me to someone are their neurons...
I'm not a romantic and I have nothing against them, provided they do not try to convince me that romance is useful for something...
I would love to have no economic activity, preferably not even relate to humans...

I think humans only work in two modes, hormonal or animal...
I'm still waiting for humanity's extinction so the planet and other earthlings can live in peace!
