Christmas SheepOh, I decided on something I care about since I posted here, oh so long ago (almost a month, iirc). Knowledge. I really wish I was born like 500 years ago so I could be a polymath, but by this point there's just too much knowledge in the world. Also, there's essentially no such thing as scholars anymore, which would be my second choice. So, now my life's ambition is to be a polyconversationalist; that is, to be able to have intelligent conversation in every field of knowledge, so whenever I have a question about something, I'll know exactly how to ask it. But yeah, knowing things is cool.

Public ServantHumanity. I'll echo the Patrick Stewart speech from Star Trek TNG: "Oh, I know Hamlet. And what he might say with irony, I say with conviction: 'What a piece of work is man! How noble in reason! How infinite in faculty! In form, in moving, how express and admirable! In action, how like an angel! In apprehension, how like a god!"
"Progress lies not in enhancing what is, but in advancing toward what will be."
Free time Some of our rights My belief that free will does not exist Knowledge The law (I started studying it, and I must say, I'm in positive awe at the way it works) And of course, all the actual things I care about, the things I like doing.
Uh, what?I don't care.*

I care about being able to live my life without sadness or worry, but basic contentment. I am quite neurotic and I deeply fear things such as death and pain because I don't know what happens afterwards. Part of the reason I'm so critical of some religions such as Christianity is because the potential for abuse is very likely and it often generalizes people's personal problems onto abstract things like sin and the devil (which are just as likely to be due to accidents, random events, and psychological and physical abnormalities). My greatest fear is that something negative in my life, such as the death of a loved one or personal major illness and injury, will change me into something I don't want to be.
I also deeply care about passing on knowledge to future generations so they may learn about the world around them and decrease potential mistakes. This is regardless of the material (stories, people, scientific articles, etc).
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
