<big>BODHIDHARMA</big>
<big><big>Who are you?</big></big> (name, age, and claim to fame)
Bodhidharma, 40ish, the transmitter of Chan Buddhism to China and regarded as its first Chinese patriarch, began the physical training of the monks of Shaolin Monastery that led to the creation of Shaolin Kung Fu

<big><big>What are you?</big></big> (gender, ethnicity, profession)
Man, "Yi" (ancient Chinese concept for "barbarian" or "non-Chinese", specifically from Central Asia or India, lived most of his life in China), first Chinese patriarch of Chan Buddhism, first teacher of Shaolin Kung Fu

<big><big>When are you from?</big></big> (what year you were pulled out of)
500

<big><big>What were you doing before you woke up here?</big></big> (background and recent activities)
An exercise in wall-gazing, rumor has it I did this for 9 years straight, but that would be impossible for a mortal to do. Nevertheless, it is a form of meditation I perfected, for "Those who turn from delusion back to reality, who meditate on walls, the absence of self and other, the oneness of mortal and sage, and who remain unmoved even by scriptures are in complete and unspoken agreement with reason".

<big><big>How can we expect you to behave?</big></big> (personality, likes and dislikes)
As a true Chan Buddhist, arguably better known for its Japanese equivalent Zen Buddhism, Zen emphasizes rigorous self-control, meditation-practice, insight into Buddha-nature, and the personal expression of this insight in daily life, especially for the benefit of others.

<big><big>How can we expect you to behave?</big></big> (personality, likes and dislikes)
I am an absurdist. In philosophy, "the Absurd" refers to the conflict between the human tendency to seek inherent value and meaning in life and the human inability to find any. In this context absurd does not mean "logically impossible", but rather "humanly impossible". The universe and the human mind do not each separately cause the Absurd, but rather, the Absurd arises by the contradictory nature of the two existing simultaneously.
