You're here because you wanted to know who I am. However, I won't tell you what you want to know and instead I would tell you what you need to know.
My name, my age, where I'm from - Those things do not define who I am. What I look like? One's face is as irrelevant as a book cover. Its only purpose is to fool you but in some cases, it surprises you with the brilliance behind it.
I do enjoy talking about movies, music, anime, and games. But I'd enjoy more hearing ideas. I'd rather know your perspectives about different things. And I could listen to them nonstop if I know it is coming from someone who isn't a sheep.
I am the type that do not believe in something just because someone says "It is believed by many, therefore it is true". A logical fallacy known as argumentum ad populum. The next time you do something, such as knocking on wood, saying bless you, or even praying to a god. Ask yourself first - "Why do I do this? How would it even work? Am I doing something that makes sense or am I just keeping a false belief and unciviliced people's tradition alive?"
I do not believe in fate. I do not think someone or something is in control of the things that have and would occur in my life. Things happen because of the choices and actions made by everyone. Not because they were weaved with an invisible thread of destiny.
I do not believe in karma as well. Good and bad things happen whether you've done something good or bad. It's like saying that if I danced for rain, and it actually rained, then the dance works. Some may say that the dance probably did work and that I can't prove that it didn't. Another logical fallacy known as argumentum ad ignorantium. Believing that something is true, because it has not, and cannot be, proven false.
I do not believe in luck. Even when you win a coin toss. It's not because of luck. But it is because of the position, the velocity, the angular momentum, the wind, the distance of where it would land, and the softness of the area where it would land, as that would determine its bounce. If the coin toss was repeated with the same properties, the result would be the same. Would you still say it's because of luck? No.
I do not fear death. If anything, I fear the physical pain before it. When I die I won't feel regret. I won't miss anyone. I won't feel anything because I'll be dead. I'll just be on the similar state before I was born. I'll be unconscious and nonexistent. The only thing I hope for is for no one to shed a tear. Why cry over someone's death, if that someone never even feared death to begin with?
