Member Questionnaire 1 (Wallon)What is beauty? What is love?
-What are your most important values?
In order of importance descending:Do you have any sort of spiritual/religious beliefs, and why do you hold (or don't) those beliefs in the first place?
1. The prevention of negative experiences
2. The facilitation of positive experiences
If there was a species of intelligent life where one demographic ruled in pure autocracy over another demographic, based on an arbitrary factor (race, gender, etc.) and it caused none of them involved any negative experiences, and never will, the situation would make me feel uncomfortable. But who am I to ruin their oppressive utopia? I could not empathize with the subordinate demographic, but as long as all of them will always be happy about their situation, their circumstances are inconsequential.
I would like to have spiritual or religious beliefs, but all the popular religions seem kinda boring or disciplinarian, and I'd have no community if I tried to make my own argument-positive religion of civility. Them's the breaks. For now, I'm just an absurdist.Opinion on war and militaries? What is power to you?
It's a means to an end. Just don't act like you deserve all the power and victory that the universe predetermined you to have.What have you had long conversations about? What are your interests? Why?
Long conversation topics: Interested in health/medicine as a conversation topic? Are you focused on your body?
What can we know? (My thesis: "Nothing.")
What can we justify? (My thesis: "Nothing.")
What do people deserve? (My thesis: "Nothing.")
What is natural? (My thesis: "Everything.")
Interests: philosophy, argument, social justice, personality theory, narrative tropes, geometry and optics.
Those are my interests because my brain releases happy chemicals when I do them.
-What do you think of daily chores?
-Books or films you liked? Recently read/watched or otherwise. Examples welcome.
-What has made you cry? What has made you smile? Why?
-Where do you feel: at one with the environment/a sense of belonging?
In buildings with a bizarre geometries, usually inhabited by equally strange, sapient creatures with varying personalities; only found in dreams.What have people seen as your weaknesses? What do you dislike about yourself?
People think I like to argue too much. What have people seen as your strengths? What do you like about yourself?
I don't like that doing important things does not excite me, and thus my lack of motivation.
People think I am very smart and articulate. In what areas of your life would you like help?
I like that I question things that others don't. I just wish I could see all the challenging questions I haven't thought of.
Being productive.Ever feel stuck in a rut? If yes, describe the causes and your reaction to it.
-What qualities do you most like and dislike in other people? What types do you get along with?
I don't like aggressive people who like to get what they want by fighting and hurting others. I like friendly people who get what they want by civilly reasoning with others, like me. I tend to get along with people who are humble about their intelligence; they show interest in the things I talk about and tolerate foreign ideas as long as I am patient in explaining them, and we would exchange compliments. I would dismiss their compliments as unimportant and they would dismiss my compliments as untrue.How do you feel about romance/sex? What qualities do you want in a partner?
I have a femdom fetish, so um... I'd love to meet a 'top lass,' if you know what I mean.If you were to raise a child, what would be your main concerns, what measures would you take, and why?
I would try and teach them about everything as soon as they could understand it so that they could prudently and autonomously overcome life's challenges without my direct guidance. I would tell them the circumstances, risks and opportunities of certain decisions and let them decide what to do based on what they trust and value. I would try and convince them to do certain things as I would with anyone else, but I will not give any imperatives.A friend makes a claim that clashes with your current beliefs. What is your inward and outward reaction?
Inward: "Hey look, a more interesting topic."Describe your relationship to society. How do you see people as a whole? What do you consider a prevalent social problem? Name one.
Outward: "Wait wait wait. Just to clarify, do you believe that [rephrases what they said so that it is coherent]?"
People think that the things they do can be justified, or that some people deserve things, which makes them not only incorrect, but also malevolent to those who do not satisfy their arbitrary standard of justification.How do you choose your friends and how do you behave around them?
-How do you behave around strangers?
I tend to go on long night walks; sometimes, in very dark areas, as I approach very closely to a person, I would try to creep them out by quickly changing my blank expression to something more jolly, raising my arm and waving hello.
