Kashai: Life is the opportunity to relate. Meaning constitutes how important relating is. Being afraid of nothing is meaningless.
science to it.
there's a psychology to it
But when there's an explosion of stars, flags, and responses going on, I won't deny it... it makes me feel good and giddy inside like I just said something really, really important! And all that reinforcement isn't for naught, no! The little rush inside gives me all the more incentive to shoot for the stars again (quite literally in this case with ATS's starring system) and it's what really keeps me around. So the starring and flagging system? I'd say it's pretty efficient in terms of producing emotional incentive to stick around. I know it's silly, but tbh, if all of you ignored me all of the time then I'd feel less and less inclined to participate and come back.

For me there are two angles.
One is the moment.
The other is what is possible as an individual within a moment.
Between these two angles there is something in between as well as the time it takes.
Not just within the past and present but also within the moment.
We are an expression of a moment that goes beyond 2 angles.
I do however star everyones responses
I have all those feelings and till maybe ten posts ago even apologized at the end of each post for if I sounded dumb,
Could the Ancient Gnostic writings be right about the Archons?
I think you're underplaying your hand, if that's really you in your profile pic, but ok
The members of ATS are far from complete strangers to me.

That doesn't mean that I'd gladly get naked to gain attention
And there you have it. My deepest thoughts about participating on ATS.
