My name is Frank. I was born in Tallinn, Estonia and ever since I was a kid, I have had way too much free time on my hands.
Over the course of a decade I have stumbled upon a couple of lucky opportunities which have enabled me to work from home part-time. And that’s what I’ve been doing for the better part of my adult-life.
Of course this type of experimental living is not ideal for most because there have been times of uncertainty in my life where I have had to collect bottles from trash-bins in order to buy food. I’ve definitely not lived a life of luxury, but that’s to be expected when you live “off the grid” and by your own rules.
In the beginning of my “career” I used to work in a government city hall because I had connections, but I grew so sick and tired of the dull and mind numbing office-life that I quit merely a year later because I felt like I would blow up something otherwise (disclaimer: I don’t know how to build a bomb and I don’t really care). I couldn’t handle the mental strain and the people.
Yeah, I’m not really a people’s person at all. I don’t have a lot of friends, I never go out to party and sometimes I can go for days without talking to anyone.
Instead I spend my time reading articles and tutorials on topics that interest me the most. I can’t get enough of things like web-development, music theory, Ethereum based smart contracts, game development, virtual reality, software development, photography and artificial intelligence.
Of course there are a lot more that I’m passionate about, but these are some of the top choices that came to mind.
One of the things that really bring me down almost every day is the fact that I’m human. I’m so limited in terms of processing speed and it literally eats me up inside. There is so much that I want to do and learn, but as a human there’s just not enough time.
I dream about downloading new information directly into my brain instead of having to spend hours on figuring out things through trial and error.
Don’t get me wrong, I love the challenge and it’s part of what drives me, but sometimes I get stuck behind simple logic errors and spend hours trying to find the solution that’s right in front of me. And that’s hours lost due to the inefficiency of the human brain. It’s really annoying.
Another really troublesome aspect of life for me is death. A mere thought of dying can bring on a full-blown panic attack for me. The concept of death fascinates and terrifies me both at the same time. How is it possible that there exists something in the universe that is constant and cannot be changed? I thought change was the only constant. So is death change? A change to what?
I don’t believe in life after death because it makes absolutely no sense. Sure, we still don’t understand what consciousness is and how it operates, but makes sense to assume that consciousness exists only because our bodies exist. It’s nothing more than an operating system and when the machine is destroyed, unless you make a copy, the operating system along with all the data will be gone for good.
Which brings me to my final thought of the day. I need to have my head cut off and put into deep freeze when I die. Please anyone! If you are reading this and have the financial capabilities to help me out please contact me immediately.
I want to explore the universe and help build the Mars colony but I can’t do this when I’m dead.
