I'm hoping that's not the one you named yourself after.

Satyr is Greek so has obviously named himself after the half man half goat character of Greek mythology. He is associated
with Dionysus the Greek goddess of wine. Also often portrayed with a huge phallus. And so the Satyr of antiquity had very
basic primal desires entirely unrelated to the modern day Satyr who is by comparison less hedonistic and more intellectual
A MIND IS LIKE A PARACHUTE : IT DOES NOT WORK UNLESS IT IS OPEN

Excellent.
Do we not all idealize what we are least like?
It is what is least like us, as we know ourselves to be, and understand ourselves as, that intrigues us.
It's why opposites attract, and why when self-love has been cultivated we find those most like how we know ourselves to be, the ideal, what we are attracted to.
For a chaotic mind, like Turd, seeking order in information, in google data, absolute order, in the form of a God, is fascinating, is seductive. 
Google is like a hive mind, the divine consciousness, a fingertip away...like on the Sistine Chapel.
Some event, in his life, exposing him to the uncertainty of Flux, made him flee into the comforting embrace of a christian metaphor for absolute order - peace, certainty, predictability, comfort, the idea that even the worse is to be suffered for a reason.
He reaches up to touch the hand of god, and hopes God is reaching down to him.
Humanity being the Modern's name for God.
We see in that why he is a christian, or why many like him are so.
This is, also, why he fascinates me....being so base, ridiculous, intuitive, superficial, and obvious in every other way.
His posturing, his cultivation of a desirable identity, is predicable and the least like me, and therefore strange and interesting.

An explanation of why ILP intrigues me.
Madness, or any kind of intuitive, automatic, instinctual, reactivity, is what I am least like - and so it is of great interest to me.
Manimals are fascinating - behavior based on nothing but vague sensations, intrigues me.
Orgasm, erotic ecstasy, thymotic rage, is of great interest to me....because it is the least like me.
It is the unknown alien.
Not that it is absent in me, only that it is a part of me I have not explored, nor experienced, other than through proxies.

The ideal becomes a representation of what we feel, or judge, as being what we lack.
In Nietzschean terms, the Dionysian idealizes Apollo, and the Apollonian idealize Dionysus, Nietzsche, himself, being a perfect example, as are most philosophers because philosophy is the extreme of ordering - consciousness being an ordering, in a fluctuating cosmos.
