Wow, so much to respond to in that!
First let me thank you for taking the time to be thoughtful and articulate. Many have lost the courage to step forward and speak their mind of the
truth they know. And it's the truth that I think many of us come to sites like this to seek.
In a word, that is my "agenda". Truth. There is nothing hidden in my intentions, I simply am observing this stuff and this forum gives me a place to
vent what I'm seeing. The value in that comes from the catharsis achieved from sharing "secrets" at a group level, something that is not done
regularly enough I think.
Jung said that all neurosis stem from our efforts to hide our secrets and suppress our emotions, whether consciously or not. I agree with that, as
its been my experience. I think our governments and institutions are merely comprised of individuals just like you and me, and thus exhibit similar
group patterns and dynamics as the individuals that comprise them. There is not enough truth telling at the individual level or group level of our
society, and that's what I stand for - telling the truth.
One of the most valuable sources for truth I've found is from skepticism. Skeptics bring things to light that would not normally come to my mind. I
value the skepticism of this forum, as it challenges me to think more clearly about truth.
I value your skepticism.
I hope to challenge others with my own.
In the end, I hope we both walk away more educated and perhaps with more truth, which usually involves some ego deflation along the way. I can handle
that. I embrace it. Its what keeps life interesting, and to me, different than what the scientific community offers - which gets stale and clinical
and misses the forest through the trees. I seek the forest.
I was trained as a strategist and performed that role for nearly 20 years, working on wall street. I had offices in midtown (45th and Lex) and in
lower Manhattan (2 World Financial Center) on 9/11. It changed my life and I still grapple with the realities of that truth. It's haunting and this
forum helps me vent subconscious, suppressed emotion.
That's whats going on as best as I know. I retired at 41 after a disabling event took part of my cognitive abilities away. I enjoy conspiracy stuff
because it challenges my cognitive skills in novel ways that help me heal from multiple brain surgeries. This is why I put so much into these posts,
not because of some secret agenda, quite the opposite , in truth.
My bent towards most conspiracy is skepticism - from every angle. Mostly of myself, as I can make myself believe all kinds of crazy things, and I
seek truth. That comes from within and from without.
Challenge everything. This world is not what I think it is. In the end, come away with respect for others and myself. And ultimately, love more.
Love more humanity and myself. In an odd way, that's what conspiracy means to me, and represents the agenda of my conscious mind. Reality exists
