    Hey guys,
    37, American male (of English and Russian descent). I think Western Civilization, so called, is a catastrophe. I wish I was born to the Hopi, or the Sioux, or the Ashaninka, long before they encountered Europeans.
    Book: The Brothers Karamazov
    Film: The Elephant Man
    Music: Roky Erickson
    I'd call my thinking a blend of the Apophatic, Shamanic, and Archetypal. 
     In my 20's, I thought I must be some odd species of genius, visionary, or savant. More recently, I've largely let go of any notions of being special. I have self-published two books; one of aphorisms, another of homilies and fragments. You can read excerpts here:
    Pleased to meechas!

    I was Googling about Empedocles (I'm a fan of Holderlin, who wrote The Death of Empedocles) and found a summary on here of Gore Vidal's Creation. Site looks interesting.
