1 - I'm Dimitri Pike, French DJ/Producer actually in Belgium and soon in Germany.

2 - A lot. My behaviors are directly influenced by my identity. Or it is the opposite ? Strange great question.

3 - On a human calendar I'll say 2010 but I could as well situate myself between reality and dream.

4 - From my personal life experience.

5 - We're all different because we're all the same.

6 - We're all the same because we're all different.

7 - Depends but I tend to valuate things that are true, made with/from passion, I appreciate usable and not too crazy originality.

8 - The fact that we all have a different path, a different background, different hopes, etc...

9 - An illusion.

10 - Something more peoples should have.

11 - Something you need to manage well.

12 - To realize with success a couple of projects.

13 - Question of mentality maybe.

1. A framework of possible vectors. Revealing the ideology of the concealed behind the fa├žade of the hegemony of pseudo-objectivity.

2. This is unclear, due to the complementarily dialecticism of Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle.

3. Transversing the differential topology.

4. The space-time manifold that ceases to exist as an objective physical stricture.

5. I am a complete elucidation of one, the same and the differentiated and variegated object. A constant that is not a constant. I am the very concept of non-heterodox fluid dynamical become contingent.

6. The periodicity of the syncresis exheridate of all metacritical sense.

7. A decentralised epistemology based on the transformative hermeneutics of quantum gravity. Whilst retaining the biomorphoigenicphysics of self-organising systems as the fulcrum of my ethical-relative-centrality.

8. Perturbative nonrenormalizable.

9. The self-consistent nonlinear theory of a symmetric second-rank tensor field

10. The first homology of the sphere is trivial, while those of the other surfaces are profound.

11. Differential topology of manifolds without boundaries.

12. The struggle for the transformation of implicated order within parsimonious ideology. To transgress the boundaries.

13. Equations are the only means possible to describe the complex, chaotic, and non-deterministic reality. And thus the phenomena and the embeddedness of individuals and societies in the cyclical patterns of nature overthrow the static ontological categories and hierarchies characteristics and fades away into mere shadows.

1. Carbon biped with an inflated sense of self-importance
2. Sometimes surprisingly little!
3. Traveling at the mind-boggling speed of 30,000 meters/sec through space on a round ball. Feelin' fine.
4. Sleepiness, sexiness, hungryness. And a small ball of black matter inside my right cochlear shell.
5. I'm wearing functional, but stylish boots that I haven't seen on anyone else yet. That and I love (to eat) pineapple to a clinical degree.
6. I too often find solace in books and music.
7. Family, my fucked up town (provided valuable antithesis of some of my values), books, John Coltrane.
8. Physics, sexy physics!
9. The ultimate answer.
10. Knowing when to keep one's trap shut (which, for me, from previous experience, is 90% of the times I think I should say something).
11. A volleyball game with a Faberge egg.
12. So very prosaic - legal status in the country I live in for some of my family members. It'd alleviate a lot of unnecessary stress...
13. Usually optimists... the ones who are unselfish and considerate of others'.

logie said...

Me

Definitely some, but it is one of many self forces that do.

Depends on what theory you conform to, everywhere and in the only one moment, or not even at all, or Glasgow, 2010. Probably depends on what I've smoked haha

Electronic patterns multiplied by whatever x is.

Who knows.

We can't be that different.

Anything I have learned, family.

What they are exposed to.

The next 3 are too much to think about, take me ages.

To be able to experience a utopian lifestyle in an a sci-fi-esque far future haha

Choice. Maybe a conditioned or genetic disposition towards.

1. In all honesty, I have absolutely no idea.

2. I think a huge amount. The idea I have of who I am makes me act the way I do.

3. It changes. Sometimes in a big place, sometimes in a small place.

4. A swirling vortex at the centre of my being.

5. Certain constructions of personality and value make me different, but they're not to be taken too seriously!

6. The inside of my body is the same. The swirling vortex that generates my thoughts is the same. Strange thought: why don't the insides of our bodies look different from each other, just like our faces do?

7. Equality, acceptance, love, fairness and compassion.

8.The illusion of the ego.

9. Love is something that feels so incredibly good it has the power to make real-life things happen in the world, just like an 'engine' - it makes our hearts beat and flowers open, things like that. Love is a bridge between spirit and world.

10. Wisdom is the knowledge that wells up from within and that needs no external verification or approval.

11. Trust is feeling really safe and knowing who in the world loves and accepts me unconditionally.

12. All beings to be happy and free.

13. They are struggling less with their internal worlds at that point in time.
