Counter: As of 03/31/17, my articles published here have been viewed 592,637 times.
To get an initial sense of me, refer to the six pieces of writing in the "In the Spotlight" slideshow directly below. Three of these are articles. The other three are poems: Reverse Cosmogony, Ta Panta, and Death Calls (listed just now in order of shortest to lengthiest).
Please Note: I published most of these articles and poems years ago, and I haven't really been on HubPages much since then. I realized recently that I have a lot of fan mail, and my Hubs have a lot of comments, that I had never seen before. I apologize for not responding to these sooner, but I really stopped checking up on my Hubs for years. I will try to respond to comments and fan mail as soon as possible over the next few months. THANK YOU to everyone who left me fan mail and comments. It is greatly appreciated!
I graduated from the University of Tennessee with a major in psychology and a minor in Religious Studies. My profile name is a combination of my first initial and last name (Justin Aptaker).
My main interests are philosophy, religious studies, psychology, sociology, anthropology, history, classical Greek language, mythology, etymology/philology/linguistics, poetry, and film.
My alter-ego on Hubpages is Kerux (a name under which I mostly publish more poetry).
