Whoami Within following figurative nutshell

Whoami? Within following figurative nutshell: Yours truly just a fluke of the universe worming his way hook, line and sinker thru the meandering time stream, which current speeds up the older I get. A garden variety (generic) agrarian wannabe antiauthoritarian, bookish antiquarian bloke, antitotalitarian, well mannered barbarian disestablishmentarian, egalitarian, futilitarian, grammarian, quasi hereditarian, latitudinarian, libertarian, majoritarian, nonsectarian, nonvegetarian, proletarian, sexagenarian, Unitarian. Yours truly amazingly chronologically, enigmatically, gracefully, interminably weathered despite malevolent mental maelstrom, linkedin with extinction of *****sapiens in tandem with many flora and fauna populating planet Earth courtesy Manhattan Project when Ernest Rutherford split the atom. Fiendish and gruesome phantasmagoric denizens dwell deep inside subterranean vault perform an evil dance haunt psychic landscape with imaginary (yet realistic) gargoyle visitations cast macabre trance nocturnal unconscious invaders cavort and gallivant disturb quiescent sleep with devilish and sinister prance. Apparitions crept stealthily into peaceful slumber receptacle repository whence illusory landscape of dreams take place to rejuvenate exhausted body, mind and spirit triage rent asunder blissful sleep with a startled fright cold sweat drenched nighttime garments and bedding teeth chattered uncontrollably heart pounded loudly inside chest nightmarish phantoms wrought an awful ghoulish sight.
