Hello, never really did this on my last account, and life was more....fluid then. So this time lets try for longevity, and to that end I shall introduce me! I chose the name I did because the lantern of Diogenes shined during the day, I find that imagery wonderful in it's concept, that being a lie can be told during the day as easily as night, a light to seek them out
I admire Diogenes because he actively poked the social norm with a stick, he commanded his own reality and let no one tell him any different, invited an emperor into his barrel and found a student in the same man.

I read between 4 and 5 books a week, I enjoy Scifi, History, Martial arts, puzzles, problems, I find the act of searching for new information relaxing, I try to keep my ducks in a row, however i am only human, so if I make a mistake please point it out. If what follows is a discussion of your opinion and mine, I will always admit when i am wrong, apologize if I offend, and help dig up knowledge or bring new facts to the table where I can.

I have a deep love for philosophy, it allows us to throw darts at the universe, Paranormal activity interests me, my first spirit encounter was when I was a 6, a shadow person was projecting itself in my room, my mother was a nurse my father a police officer, my grandfather a minister and mortician, even at this early age I went through a mental checklist to make sure I wasn't dreaming or having an "episode"
Ever since then I have sought out the paranormal and continue to do so to this day. Technology, medicine, space, politics, financial futures, all interest me because they affect us all both with benefits and troubles.
I have a deep respect love and relationship with nature, I would never be called religious, however "You have been given a garden treat it well and be fruitful" seems pretty straight forward, Animals are our cousins, argue it all you want but DNA tells everything on this planet shares common DNA codices, I "listen" to my pets I have 4 cats and a Tibetan Mastiff named "Mouse", they are all very much their own "people" each with different personalities and skills, I grow many different kinds of planets from Orchids to Giant Pumpkins. I live in Northern Ca and enjoy the smell of redwoods and rain. Pleased to meet you. And may we find the truths with everyone else.

lol yup you are gritty but without sandpaper there can be no exposure of the true grain of the matter. not getting emotimole just saying. a little abrasive never hurt anyone.
