1. What is beauty? What is love?
Beauty is subjective for everyone. Though objective standards of beauty also exists, like the golden ratio, and the waist hip ratio, in large part I think it is very subjective. What someone finds beautiful may be repulsive for another.
Personally, I find these images beautiful:
Seeing the question "What is love" I am almost tempted to say "baby don't hurt me" lol. I guess I could explain love intellectually to be a product of chemicals in your brain, fleeting and meaningless, apart from your instincts trying to make you reproduce and pair bond for enough time to raise your offspring. I accept that as the reality deep inside. However, I try not to think about this in my everyday life. I don't think this attitude is productive or beneficial if I'm going to live in this world and be in relationships. In everyday life, I try not to think about this and other similar truths.
If we are going by the emotional definition, love to me is when I feel happy for their success, worry when they are facing difficulties, and miss them when they're gone.
2. What are your most important values?
If we are going by personal values, as in the qualities I think are important for me:
self-control, patience, restrain, fairness, honesty, kindness, respect, willpower, decisiveness, persistence
Most of the above are due to practicality. I consider them important qualities to have in order to succeed. Some are also out of emotional reasons, for example, I like to be kind and nice to people because it makes me happy.
As for the things I value in society, I don't really have much to say about it. The only things I can think of right now are indivdualism and scientific progress. People should have the freedom to pursue their own paths and do whatever they want, as long as it doesn't affect others. We should focus on scientific progress because it improves our future.
3. Do you have any sort of spiritual/religious beliefs, and why do you hold (or don't) those beliefs in the first place?
I am into Taoism and Buddhist philosophy. I don't believe in gods and deities, and I am not sure why I have to explain NOT having religious beliefs. There is no reason for it really, you can't force yourself into believing something that you don't believe in.
I was in a strict Christian middle school, and there was a lot of social and peer pressure to be Christians. Every faculty member is a Christian and they would preach every morning. A lot of what they said made no sense to me. Initially I tried to keep this quiet, but somehow word got out that I was the only non-Christian in the class, and every week I got summoned to the principal's office to have a friendly chat about my "religion problem". The more they pressured me, the more I resisted. People kept coming up to me, incredulous and confused, "why don't you believe in god?" I tried to evade the questions because I didn't want to be ostracized, but eventually I ran out of patience and answered: "I don't need a reason. The burden of proof lies on the preachers not me."
I knew things could have been much easier if I just lie about it, but I didn't want to lie about my beliefs. There were some people who were not true believers and just went along with it, while not doing what they preach. I used to find them hypocritical/weak, but now I find it understandable, we were young after all.
4. Opinion on war and militaries? What is power to you?
I don't really have a lot of experience with war and militaries, since I live in a pretty peaceful corner of the world. As a concept I think they are the means to get what you want.
I'm not sure if it is appropriate to talk about games in response to a serious question, but here it goes. In RTS/TBS games I generally focus on developing my own cities and rarely attack others, unless there is a reason for it (I want their resources/land). I think it works the same way in real life. Not much else to talk about it.
Power to me is the ability to influence people and make them do what I say. I used to be into politics a few years ago, tried to fight for democracy in my country by going to demonstrations, debating, voting, etc. But now, I think all of that is pretty pointless, because my one vote doesn't change anything after all. I am too weak and powerless. Now, I'm apathetic to politics and don't even read about it anymore. Occasionally, I dream of being this famous and respected figure that leads people into fighting for what we want, or even having some sort of super power/atomic bomb to threaten the enemy into giving me what I want. Ridiculous, I know.
