Focus of Edits on Wikipedia[edit]

I want to spend time on Buddhist topics, especially rounding out articles about Japanese lineages.

More generally, religion, philosophy, Latin American topics, hard sciences, and social anthropology are areas of interest.

Origin of name[edit]

The word defenestrate means "to throw out the window," from French/Latin "de-" + "fenestra," window. Perhaps this is like a gangster, who throws his traitor cousin from the 32nd floor, or, even better, like a psychedelic mushroom that forces the violent abandonment of self.
