I've had various special interests over the years.

My current special interest is the autistic community (in the sense of subculture).

autism in seniors, especially promoting and supporting elders to get diagnosis and sort out life from the new perspective or autism. I have more than one passionate interest.
I also love learning about rocks and fossils and have had a life long passion for horses and other animals, and nature in general. I love to learn about any of these subjects, search for info, and share info regarding them.

I guess; Media. (the entire electronic sphere of music, movies, tv, pop culture, technology) Marshall McLuhan was one the first to put a spotlight on all this.

Yes i have a taste for that. (occult, mythology,...ect) Have looked into that. Occult = hidden. Mythology = ancient symbolism hidden in plain sight to be decoded. I have looked into Buddhism also. (zen.)

Most often my primary interest falls somewhere in the category of body horror and/or cosmic horror. The weirder/less conventional, the better.

For a while I've had an interest in animal social structures. It's just fascinating to me to think about how there are so many differing social structures co-existing in the world. This interest also extends into physical traits of an animal and why they developed. I also find learning about genetics and brain structures to be of interest. Especially discussions of nature vs nurture.
