I offer people knowledge in the form of disabusing them of their illusions about the world - and am shunned for it. I'm also fascinated by the number nine and multiples thereof.

I was curious because, even before I came to Wrong Planet, I had come to see the Prometheus myths as a metaphor for the more highly talented autistic people generally: able to give a lot of new knowledge to the world, but, all too often, prevented from doing so by living in a world that is not autistic-friendly.

You sound like a legitimately cool guy. 8)

I don't believe in the notion of absolute truth, though. I believe in absolute truth and sew with notions. :D
