Wow, this thread kind of blew up, pardon my participatory absence folks. It seems there are two lines of thought going on, one sees this as bs or
ignorance and the other is of possibility and positivity. I put this in the metaphysics forum because I feel that is where it belongs. I realize it
qualifies as new age-ish utilizing energy concepts, and I have reservations about that kind of stuff, but at the same time I am open to such
possibilities,in a speculative optimist fashion, because I feel we have power to shape our realities as they manifest sometimes,. I guess faith or
hope has it's place here and if people use crystals as a source of happiness, then that is the bottom line for me. Sure it could be considered
pseudoscience and I respect people's defining this as so, I just thought the novelty was more interesting/inspiring than scientific.
I am one, like RealTruth that wonders about innate intuitiveness amongst children and what, if any value is lost to society from children's minds that
conform to status quo as they grow. I can see how some view this as harmful, but I do not see it as so because I believe imagination is one of our
greatest attributes and should be encouraged. Sometimes
wisdom of the ages comes to light under scientific investigation, so I am still open to crystal power and hope maybe quantum physics or another field
may revel any importance beyond belief about crystals. A part of me thinks that beleif
itself is the power. That is highly speculative yes,
but still I wonder. I would like to see some kirlian photo shots of the grid just out of curiosity.
Thanks for all the comments and may this kid find his own place in his beliefs and practices, one way or another.
ETA: Just wanted to add that new age stuff could be compared to religion, as in it has value for some, providing hope and positivity and as long as
they aren't pushing it in others face, let them be, for it takes all kinds to make our world go round.
