Greetings, fellow forum members! I am excited to begin participating on this website as it seems like a good place to voice my thoughts and opinions on a plethora of topics. My most frequent topics are bound to be religion, philosophy, and politics although I might get into others including supernatural topics and conspiracies from time to time, depending on my ability to contribute.

My frame of mind is to be central in many ways, and to make every attempt possible to view a topic from all points of view, and only after learning all I can, to apply what I've learned and form my own hypothesis on the matter. I have chosen this way of life after seeing so much unnecessary contention and division on so many issues.

I began this thought process with religion. I was conflicted on which one to join, which one to follow. I read about different religions and their beliefs, even atheistic groups such as the temple of set, and satanism. After studying and contemplating, after pondering for a time, I wondered why I was seeking to follow anyone at all. I didn't feel a need to declare my beliefs or worship any person, or a God. I didn't feel a need to be on "the left hand path" nor "the right hand path" - identifying with any specific cult, sect, or religion only seemed to shut down an open mind, and an open life.

After, I applied this thought process to all other areas. I keep an open mind on all topics until I am well versed in said topic.

With that being said, I look forward to exchanging thoughts and ideas with all of you on this forum, thanks for reading and I hope to see you around here!

May all our hypothesizing be sprinkled with a little direct experience along the way. Remembering, the middle of the road can be a dangerous place to walk…

I do not intend to be taoist, or to simply sit on a fence, but rather to observe until more things become apparent. I seek to understand, I desire to find any amount of truth I can, and while I tend to lean towards observing beyond what many would deem a necessary amount of time, I do not always take a neutral position, I do have strong opinions and ideas, I simply took a while to get there

Thanks!

I guess this water by me will have to do for the moment.

Well, I'm patient, I'll take my time and wait my turn.
