About MeanGene


62 year old male. Curious. Intelligent. I'm the thinking type but have been known to act on the thinking I've done. Married to a woman who is smarter than I am which leaves me befuddled that she chose me. I love her a great deal. We're both atheists. Liberal views and we get pretty kinky from time to time. I've had some poems published and I'm sort of working on a novel but that's been the case for some time.

My overriding interest, and has been for decades, is understanding the implications of the problems Hume pointed in relation to inductive reasoning. Oh, and sex! We're both straight but have a live and let live attitude toward life. Not much shocks us!
Favorite Books:
Any thing by Neal Stephenson but I particularly liked Anathem. I'm a big sci-fi fan (it's often a guilty pleasure) and in particular a fan of Ursula Le Guin. Others include Grow or Die - The Unifying Principle of Transformation by George T Lock Land. Daniel Dennet, Stephen Pinker, and so many more. My mom taught me to read when I was 3 and I haven't stopped since. If it's worth reading, it's 50/50 that I've read it. Which means I'll never run out of good things to read.
Favorite Authors:
Neal Stephenson, Daniel Dennet, Stephen Pinker. Ursula Le Guin, Markus Sakey, Asimiov, James Lee Burke and many many others but that's probably enough to give you the general drift of my interests.
Favorite Movies:
Braveheart, Field of Dreams, Star Trek, The Dreamers (Eva Green is just SOOOO hot!), too many others to list
Favorite Music:
What my wife is playing on her Steinway right now, some Rachmaninoff. Piano Concerto #2. Leonard Cohen, Tom Waites, Miles Davis (Kinda Blue and Sketches of Spain in particular). Many others but my wife's the true music lover / musician. I can't carry a tune in a bucket.

Descended From These Fathers

I am left here descended from these fathers Caught in the glare of sudden Illumination. Oh, you know the fathers I mean The ones who chant In the catacombs of heart Giving voice to low murmurs That hold time together With wattle, And daub, And spittle, And hopes. Dwellers where dreams Get laid to rest prematurely They sang of you in low tones That rumbled up faintly Through limestone...

The Middle of Her Youth

Four stools down One of those elemental issues Mushrooms and spores out bitter. That DNA thing, reptile baggage,  Still lies between them Coiled up tight Afraid to look scaly But prepared to slither. Her incisors jaw-clack Then close to break crust As an old dynamic of bit bread And missed meat recurs To stare her down again. She cries While he explains he didn't...

The bed a wreck of first coupling, And morning shadow Slipped dishabille around you. You would sleep, Eyes tracing some trigonometry of dreams, I suppose Surveying distances. What nervous sculptures Would we chisel With bare hands from flesh? What equations of synaptic import Would we resolve With tangled tongues and skin? What middle kingdom of the heart Would...
