Looking for like minded individuals around Philadelphia and the surrounding area particularly in my age group. (18-35) If you are out there and interested in meaningful conversation let me know. Thank you.

@dreamer01,
Like minded existentialist?
Oh, hold on. . .
I have a message from the nether matrix.
Back soon.

Oh. And welcome to a2k.
A few of us here seem to be like minded, albeit argumentative.
Some claim existential leanings, though few are understood.
Unless they talk about beer.

I'll shut up now

With many thanx

@dalehileman,
Existentialism can be boiled down to low level of dopamine, anxiety disorders, misanthropy, love of nature and green spaces, sight seeing, poetry, philosophy, mysticism, inner search of meaning, lack of girlfriend or boyfriend, free time, laziness...


...or perhaps there is more to it...I am pretty much an existentialist trapped in a cage of flesh and proud about it...I am not a classic groupie that likes to smoke some dope and have meaningless pseudo intellectual conversations about life.

Yeah, when one smokes dope even Scooby Doo can seem profound.

@layman,
I am a senseless Zombie...

Fresco will be forgiving I am sure.
Old man's rococo wisdom must count for something when it comes to forgiving foolish young man like me from their intellectual appetites...

I am so much Zombie I can "eat up" indulgence all day and feel nothin...

It's the insight you get after your 2nd, maybe 3rd pint.

Neo you've made my day. Can hardly wait till No. 2 Son and other brew-loving friends come visit next weekend, when I allow myself more than two 12-oz'ers on a single day
