About
After several years of careful thought and honest questioning about myself and the world around me, I think I finally discovered what I want to do.
And now I'm doing it.

I am currently attempting to establish a non-profit I founded, the Altruism Research Foundation. It's first project is a website: I'm not ignorant. I believe the primary root cause of suffering is mis-understanding, and this website aims to address that.

But, it's now clear. I can't make the world a better place alone. I need help. This is me... asking for help (just don't tell anybody).

About Me When deciding what to do with my life, I had the choice of the following problems to solve: how to save the earth from an asteroid/meteor collision, how to save life on earth from our sun dieing, find out how the universe could end (and how to stop it from ending, of course), or how to keep humans from destroying themselves.

I chose the last one.

My Goal in life is to find the answer to the question "why can't the world be a better place?" and helping as many people as possible on the way to finding the truth.

The best way I figure to do that would be to gather/join a bunch of people with diverse backgrounds and skills to come together as a company/non-profit/fellowship to brainstorm and complete one project or several to achieve maximum positive impact (Hooya!).

Turns out, there are more people caught up in living their lives then I thought (not that I'm complaining, that's exactly what I want :), and they don't want to undertake projects of that magnitude.

So now, I either go around subtly planting ideas into people's heads in attempts to woo them into joining forces (which I don't like, cause that's kinda rude IMO) or attempting to diversify my skills to make up for the co-people I lack (which I don't like, cause it wastes time and I don't like the idea of becoming someone that can't be easily replaced)

I'm currently trying to be the best person I could be, cause I figure it would also improve my worldly betterment skills. And... here are some of the results of that mentality:

I don't drink
I don't do drugs
I don't eat meat or animal products
I'm a raw vegan
I took a vow of chastity
I don't intend to get married
I took a vow of poverty
I'm trying really hard
I think your awesome
fun is fun

I have several project who's primary objective is to make the world a better place. I plan to put everything I got, and then some, into them.

I also took a vow of poverty (ask me what that entails) because I would always feel guilty for people not as well off as me. Also, people in poor communities have loads of friends and find loads of fun stuff to do with them without spending money... why can't that work out here?

Wild Fact About Me I'm working on a grand unified theory of suffering: Suffering is present when A.Freak accidents happen B. there is at least one individual that thinks their train of thought should be adopted by at least one other.
My Philosophy Life is a serious game. You should ask for help and take feedback and try to be the best at it, like any outer serious game.
