Opening Statement

Greetings. My name is Ardis and this is my blog ‘In Xeno Veritas.’ That would be (probably badly flawed) Latin for “There is truth in the alien.” That's​ not to say that I am proclaiming my opinions on the veracity of extraterrestrials, rather that I feel my viewpoint is skewed enough from the norm to give me an outsider's more objective viewpoint on a large part of my society. Granted I am aware that I do have biases, I just feel that I spend enough time in self-reflection to account for them and prevent them from leading me astray. Of course, I could be wrong about that, or I could have massive blind spots in my POV that I am unaware of. I am but mortal, I can do only what I can.

Mainly this blog will be focused on three things. Explaining me and how I view things, talking about my views on things going on in the world, and sharing stuff I like. There is no set percentage of how much I'll talk about each and I will be updating on an irregular schedule. If I tried a consistent schedule and outline I'm sure I would fail and stop writing. So to try and keep this going, I will commit only to posting when I have written something to post, whatever it is, however long that may take.

You may notice that comments have been disabled. That's because I have no interest in moderating a comment section. Odds are very good that if you are reading this, then you know me and can get in touch to respond to whatever horribly misguided thing I've said. If you don't know me... why are you reading this? Also I'm not hard to find online. Hunt me up somewhere that a third party can deal with the mod work.

That should be enough for the intro. Hopefully I'll be back soon.
