I my self am just somebody, that by Intuition or some innate knowing ,from a early age has known,being in tune with- Nature -is of most importance,I know Mankind has not been lead by The Wise for such a Long,Long time. By the simply fact that any one that was Wise would have known- We all are a Living Entity of Nature-, may sound simply,yet it is,we all just complicated things by dogmas,all these crazy "Social Constructs" And the Human Ego,is the greatest thing to overcome,or to control.and by each individual

About Me


What I have found:
how we have evolved: I think ,yes we have live in the Present,yet never forget the Past in terms of Truths,as simply of a truth as "how to build a fire" if we find ourselves,alone,without modern conveniences,we must be able to survive,continue on.
Example: Currently very few people could Survive if they found themselves alone in say a environment in Nature, say along the Upper Mississippi river,in summer,naked,no tools,nothing yet their body and nature,yet they lived their entire life (say you are 30 years old,thus mature age)..You truthly now see the hold "be part of a tribe / society is",inter-dependent, how tools where formed,thus technologies,thus comforts.
Reading the Above,how we have evolved: I think ,yes we have live in the Present,yet never forget the Past in terms of Truths,as simply of a truth as "how to build a fire" if we find ourselves,alone,without modern conveniences,we must be able to survive,continue on.
Example: Currently very few people could Survive if they found themselves alone in say a environment in Nature, say along the Upper Mississippi river,in summer,naked,no tools,nothing yet their body and nature,yet they lived their entire life (say you are 30 years old,thus mature age)..You truthly now see the hold "be part of a tribe / society is",inter-dependent, how tools where formed,thus technologies,thus comforts.Here one can see clearly the Power of the self/ego,how it regulates us to be part of the pack,the tribe,how important it is to be accepted.
Yet,how equally important it is that if we wish to be accepted,we must accept others " Idiosyncrasy", (as long as not harmful to whole of tribe)
........The term "idiosyncrasy" originates from Greek "a peculiar temperament, habit of body"

Eccentricity (behavior)

Eccentricity (also called quirkiness) is unusual or odd behavior on the part of an individual. This behavior would typically be perceived as unusual or unnecessary, without being demonstrably maladaptive. Eccentricity is contrasted with "normal" behavior, the nearly universal means by which individuals in society solve given problems and pursue certain priorities in everyday life. People who consistently display benignly eccentric behavior are labeled as "eccentrics".
(from Greek ekkentros, "out of the center", from ek-, ex- "out of" + kentron, "center". Eccentric first appeared in English essays as a neologism in 1551 as an astronomical term meaning "a circle in which the earth, sun, etc. deviates from its center." Five years later, in 1556, an adjective form of the word was used. In 1685, the definition evolved from the literal to the figurative, and eccentric is noted to have begun being used to describe unconventional or odd behavior. A noun form of the word – a person who possesses and exhibits these unconventional or odd qualities and behaviors – appeared by 1832.)

According to Weeks' study, there are several distinctive characteristics that often differentiate a healthy eccentric person from a regular person or someone who has a mental illness. The first five characteristics on Weeks' list are found in most people regarded as eccentric:[7]
1. Enduring non-conformity
2.Creative
3.Strongly motivated by an exceedingly powerful curiosity and related exploratory behaviour
4.An enduring and distinct feeling of differentness from others
5.Idealism in the sense of wanting to make the world a better place and the people in it happier[9]

More Clearly one Understands how damaging .Preventing someone not be accepted into the Tribe/Society,due to the societies belief systems,such as Racism,religion,gender,sexual-orientation → the "This is My Reality,so everybody else's Reality should be as mine",
doesn't work,if one needs a tribe,and as Human being,we need the Tribe!

I believe that only when Humanity accepts "Nature" is the Ultimate Force,the Ultimate and only Religion.Belief system,that all human formed belief systems,are full of
" Pre-conceived Notions"

First let me say "One needs to look at this as a Novel(non-fiction)..thus I have placed pages in a learning order,example if you don't understand,my meaning or view on Truth, then jump to "Liberation from Self ",you'll be hinder just as though ,starting to read any book,,by starting at the middle

Word of warning: If nudity offends you,I recommend leaving my site

I am a 55 year old male(at least currently)

I make my living as a carpenter(at least currently)..and have full time since 1990

My best friend is my dog George...has stuck with me through thick and thin last 12 years

My Interests/Studies

I see myself as:.. a Little bit of Einstein,little bit of Carl Jung, little bit of Simone Weil, little bit of Robert Henri, a lot of Hermaphrodite,some of Thoreau I now many..juxtaposed of course!

Nature thus True

Art-I have come to believe through my studies,that this statement is True! "The true Artist is the Vanguard of any great Society"(vanguard...the forefront of an action or movement)

Virtues I consider myself to have or strive for the highest degree: Honesty,open-mindedness,empathy,seeing world objectively as I can,Loyal,hard working..very spiritual in my own way(I hope to improve on these..and add to)

..very non-materialistic

My number one Passion is Art and it's meaning and purpose to the world and myself

..Yet I have spent nearly a life-time trying to overcome society's "Pre-Concieved Notions of Reality"(what I believe is essential to great Art and True Creativity)

I have been a Artist's model since 1998,posing nude for many different art schools,colleges,individuals:

(I believe I have such a great passion for "Life Drawing",posing for artists due to my own love for sketching/creating.Posing allow me to be with others with same type interest,being with others as " Direct-experience",being accepted by them,..and for myself being "effeminate",as I consider myself as a "Two-Spirit" type (male-bodied individuals described by those in their communities as "effeminate male", or as "half woman, half man".[ Berdache type

Logocentric, speaking " I am a heterosexual lady ,in a man's body non-op " Like a lady that is like a "Tom-boy"or I like to view myself simply as "Fem-male" or "Third gender"-Androgyny-

A tomboy is a girl who exhibits characteristics or behaviors considered typical of a boy ,yet ideally I desire body like Hermaphroditus
Hermaphroditus

Urning: A person assigned male at birth with a female psyche, whose main sexual attraction is to men.(heterosexual men over 21, personally,that is my own ethic's

Homosexuality is a person who is sexual desire for others of one's own sex.

2. Sexual activity with another of the same sex

Here is tricky, and reality part,,and very much relates to Plato's Forms and my idea of "Pre- Concieved Notions"

Reality includes everything that is and has been, whether or not it is observable or comprehensible. A still broader definition includes that which has existed, exists, or will exist

              Plato's Forms deals with the fact that the physical characteristics is simply, the basic observable form of reality,yet is far from what is the "True nature of a things reality" or what Plato see as anythings Pure,absolute true Form,  Plato clearly states only anythings absolute true form can only be known through deep empathic study,and comprehension, and only the basic form of anything can only be comprehended through a short visual study.

For, instance Parmenides taught that reality was a single unchanging Being, whereas Heraclitus wrote that all things flow,,I follow Heraclitus's view, from human beings are ,or should be ever changing,evolving" psychologically",and this is the big fact that sets us apart from the rest of the animal kingdom,at least in the much higher degree we can evolve through learning.

My "Pre-Concieved Notions", deals with how our minds or psychologically", we are held by,or minds are Literally polluted by old beliefs,dogmas,bias's,stereotyping(a widely held but fixed and oversimplified image or idea of a particular type of person or thing:),how unless we don't stop and take the time to truly ,deeply show Attention to our World,there is no way to see it or anything, in it's true-absolute Form.  there is no way we can  only through Attention,and the Desire for to have the Attention!

I found this writing on a website just a second ago,felt on topic here:
                                                                                                               "Let's start from the beginning, with a layman's explanation of psychology. A person's mind is composed of subconscious structures of beleifs. This could be termed as it's operating system, as a person's structures do dictate a way a person thinks. Some of these beliefs include "There is a god", "Justice prevails in the end", and "Miracles cannot happen." More beliefs will arise out of a person's choices in life, which are in turn influenced by previous beliefs. Things like, "I am a terrible mother" or "I will always have my husband" or "That was a worthwhile choice.". Challenging and replacing these beliefs is the natural state of mental growth of human beings. But this replacement of ideas is a gradual thing, and if too many structures are being tested too quickly, then a person suffers breakdown. Some beliefs and idea structures are more important than others, and these form the "skeleton" of a person's idea and belief "body". Damage to these ideas may never be repaired, and if healed, that structure will never work as it once did. Finally, our physical state also influences our mental structures. When one becomes too stressed or exhausted, one may find that their mental structures are lacking, and may grasp at new ideas to justify or keep them going. Ideas such as "I hate Etheopeans", "I am a worthless sack of figs", or "I won't take this anymore; I don't deserve it." In conclusion, to subtly break someone's sanity, you must systematically attack what they hold dear, exhaust them mentally and physically, and destroy that which they think to be true."   "Drive theory", ego and homeostasis  (In psychology, a drive theory or drive doctrine[1] is a theory that attempts to define, analyze, or classify the psychological drives. A drive is an "excitatory state produced by a homeostatic disturbance",[2] an instinctual need that has the power of driving the behaviour of an individual)
