If you've been paying attention and kept a lively mind, you may remember how I brushed past you on the street or in the woods the other day...

I am a disciple of Jesus and hold to an eclectic blend of missional restorationism, neocharismatic mysticism, Christian anarchism, liberation theology, and Oneness doctrine drawing from the rich revelation of early Discipleship and the later Mystics and passed down to the Radical Reformation and from there to the Jesus Movement and now spread through many emerging churches. My view of the universe is Holographic. My view of history is of the conspiracist school. Politically, I am an anarchist, realizing that all political systems are historically built from, whether implicit or explicit, a desire to dominate and exploit.

I am fascinated by Jesus, history, fringe science and other people, especially those of the opposite sex. I enjoy hiking, skateboarding through traffic, worshiping God, resisting tyranny, challenging tradition, breaking stereotypes (especially concerning "supposed" masculinity and christianity), reading, lucid dreaming, rocking out, hugging, sleeping in piles, growing "stuff", philosophizing for real life, and listening to the sitar (among other things).
