"Heaven is not a place, it's being with people who love you."
I believe in family and friends. If you don't have family and friends you can trust and rely on, you're a nobody. No one knows this better than me, because for the longest time, I didn't have either. My father is in prison for molesting me, my mother abandoned me, twice. I was lucky enough to be adopted by a father as an adult, but for the longest time, I didn't really have parents. My siblings are awesome, and we're getting to know each other, now.
I live for my friends, and the only reason I find any reason to bother enduring existence. The other reason is hatred and spite, and I'd live only for revenge if I lost all of my friends.
Though most people are unsatisfied with their lives but do nothing beyond whining about their misery, I work hard to define myself by doing the impossible, seeing the invisible, touching the untouchable and breaking the unbreakable.
Basic information is as follows
I am Coyo, legal name Alex J. Maurin, though I plan on changing that name.
I am 26 years old. I was born in Medical City, Dallas, Texas, United States.
I was born at 4:44 PM in the afternoon on Friday the 13th of November.
I am a chemist, mathematician, physicist, computer scientist and novelist by trade.
I am usually either hated or loved by people who know me. I'm dynamic and polarizing.
I like yellow custard-filled eclairs, portobello mushroom and cheddar-stuffed jalapenos, and yogurt berry granola parfaits.
I want to be a vegetarian, and although I love ranching, livestock are responsibilities every bit as important as pet dogs and cats and babies. You do not kill babies and eat them. Unless you do, in which case shame on you. Shaaaaame!.
I am a dog and cat owner, and take BDSM dominance very seriously.
I am an idealist who prefers a local-scale feudal model for society, but anarchy above anything more than 300-500 individuals. Human brains can't handle tribes larger than 300-500.
I am an architect and architectural engineer. Most of the time, when asked, "What do you do for a living?" I answer "I'm an Engineer," despite being unemployed in that field. The true answer is too complex an answer for most people. Most people are dumb. Any answer more complex than "I work for X, " where X is the name of a mega-corporation, is too complex and incomprehensible for most people, who simply assume you are unemployed and therefore a homeless bum who will mooch on anyone if given an opportunity. I hate people. Animals make sense, people don't. That's why I like animals more than people. Non-human animals are the real people, humans are monsters.
I like experimental architecture. I'm developing blueprints and designs for high density neo-tribal intentional communities and blurring the distinction between work and play. My designs are inherently pet-proofed and pet-friendly, including sally ports for pets, safe and comfortable enclosures, isolated suites, plenty of soundproofing and integrated baby monitors so you can supervise one's animals from anywhere in the building.
"Friends are family you choose, family are friends you are stuck with."
Family is everything to me. Even if Democratic ideals are nice in theory, it almost always devolves into mob rule in practice. Socialism and Communism are even more so. As a result, my political orientation is Anarchist, so that the many has no inherent right to that which the few has made. However, Anarchy is best at a global and regional scale. For local scale, I prefer a modern Feudal society. I call this Anarcho-Feudalism. It's not a common position.
As for religion, I feel people are free to be as insane and stupid as they want to be. I am just as free to slap the crap out of stupid people if they endanger others. I think that the only true justice is that of Vigilante Justice. The only true defense is your personal defense with military firearms and martial arts. The only true environmentalism is Green Insurrectionism.
I have little patience for norms and conventions of a people that do not respect me. I have little patience for silly things like "jobs" that involve wasting valuable time being humiliated from so-called employers who pay me almost nothing for permission to commit crimes against me, and assert his meaningless petty dominance over me for nothing in return. I have little patience for such worthless scum.
I have little patience for an education system that fails the students who trust it and rely on it for careers and futures. I have little patience for universities and colleges who take their students' money like mafia protection money, then use that money to conduct research the public will never see, research that the students and their families and friends will never benefit from. I have little patience for organizations that use the students' money to insult them, spit upon them, cripple their lives and careers, do everything they can legally get away with, every dirty trick and deception, to wiggle out of giving you the degree you are paying them to give you. I have little patience for such worthless scum.
I have little patience for a job market that fails to solve the problems that have existed for the hiring process and job-hunting process, which are really two sides of the same coin, for over four decades. I have little patience for so-called policymakers and so-called employers who are unwilling to take leadership in the job market and change norms and conventions when they so obviously fail to work. I have little patience for such worthless scum.
I have little patience for people who insinuate that I have little to no worth because I refuse on moral ground to contribute to a broken system, when I am beyond intelligent and capable enough to build an entirely new system by myself, successfully launch it, market it, and defeat the old corrupted and broken system in fair competition, sneering at my critics the entire time. I have little patience for such worthless scum.
“Do not let your weaknesses and flaws define you. Do what you love the most, and your strengths will define you.”
They say I'm exceedingly difficult to ignore if I am in my element, as I radiate enthusiasm like a corona of iridescent light. I tend to glow excitedly when at my best, and everyone feels it, whether they like it or not.
I'm doing fine. My family situation has been corrected, and I've been promised a house in exchange for putting up with the less-than-ideal living situation awhile longer.
I can't wait to have lots of space to build a workshop and laboratory to experiment and toy with new ideas and devices.
My friends say I am a turbulent firestorm of emotion and ideas, and I draw people to me with an irresistible compelling will. My passion, empathy, joy and suffering affect everyone around me.
When excited, I have a habit of literally bouncing on my toes, grinning from ear to ear. My enthusiasm is infectious, billowing from me like a thrumming ripple, pounding into the bones of any individual who happens to be within range of my area of effect.
You can usually get me in this mode by prompting me for some of my better ideas and inventions, such as my international high speed subway ideas, my ultra-fast international broadband network ideas, my experimental international smart power grid ideas, or my ideas on high-density intentional communities.
My friends say that I am "bouncy, cute, charismatic, overwhelming, charming, funny, beautiful, interesting, entertaining, expressive, dramatic, silly, smart, gifted, intelligent, and outspoken."
My enemies say that I am "stubborn, idealistic, unrealistic, unstable, flighty, shallow, irresponsible, insecure, manipulative, arrogant, melodramatic and slutty."
On top of that, with the litigious culture and threat from the law and industry, and with the ridiculous cost of formal education, and with the economy steadily deteriorating, I find it unlikely I'll get into a stupid med school. Who needs med schools anyway? Screw formal education, especially public formal education.
In terms of foods, I love egg nog, stuffed jalapenos, chips and queso, and eclairs!
I really need a diet of rich cream, fresh berries, extra virgin olive oil, fresh pure berry juice, dark leafy greens such as baby spinach, golden honey, and all of this must be ultra-high-quality 100% organic-grade produce, all preserved by canning and jarring ONLY, preferably produced and immediately consumed rather than stored at all, and prepared only with very light steam-cooking or any other means which preserves as much nutritive value as possible.
For those of you who were curious, the rumor that vegetarians taste better is 100% true.
I love textual role-play, and take it very seriously. My online persona I use as my default character is a quadrupedal digitigrade canine-like beast the size of a city bus.
His eyes are an icy dramatic silver, shifting and hypnotic, and he has gleaming silver markings that are only revealed as a specular pattern, meaning only when light reflects off of them. He is a shapeshifter, but shapeshifting is an energy-expensive special ability so he doesn't always do it. He can teleport for low cost since he's a hyperspace beast, or hyperbeast. He can "warp" without much effort without an external FTL warp drive.
He is not cyberized, because cyberization requires external implants. Rather than implants, his brain is specifically designed to interface with a collar-shaped computer with diamond semiconductors. His throat bares gleaming bioluminescent whiskers which interface with the computer optically. By this special animal design, he is capable of directly controlling drones and robotics via brain-computer interface, therefore not needing hands that can manipulate small objects with fine control. His paws are for combat and aesthetics, not manipulating fine tools. He has drones with robotic appendages for that.
