A Rose by any other Name

My name derives from a period in my life, as a child, where I was deeply into an anime titled "Shin Sekei Evangelion". Watching that show fueled my passion for ascertaining information on science and philosophy. During that time, I found that my life style most fittingly resembled an Essene... or some one of a ascetic nature. That is, one who denies the self pleasures of life whether they be emotional, sexual, physical, etc. I would also practice pain tolerance as a child. I would submerge my hands and arms into increasingly hot water in hopes to gain a higher threshold for pain. It worked marvelously. I abandoned it once the training showed positive results of working. I like a challenge.
