If you're like me, you came to ATS, not to talk politics, but in search of things mysterious. Strange things. Unusual, even fantastical! Things that
are outside the mainstream that are considered "out there" on the fringes of human thought and inquiry. Your heart was quickened in the pursuit, your
curiosity was peaked and your mind, tweaked, as your whole paradigm and worldview hovered like a butterfly the edges of an epiphany even if it only on
the basis of a mere inkling... and then it went away, the heightened sense of drama and imminent discovery, over, as you yawn and think to yourself,
maybe there is no final ah ha moment and no great dramatic resolution when all the pieces of the puzzle come together.
It wasn't something that you already knew, but something that you knew you didn't and needed to know, very urgently.
Curiosity and the quest for new discovery drove us here, but what astounds me is the general malaise and lack of drama or that nothing much is really
happening, nothing truly earth shaking and world changing as we yawn and go back to our old way of being all safe and sound in our own reality tunnel,
worldview, paradigm, prison.
That is one strange concept idea, that IT hasn't happened yet, while we remain, imminently and urgency, at the very leading edge of a complete
transformation in every area of life on Earth and in the way we see the world, ourselves and those around us, while the unwashed masses (in ever
shrinking number) continue to consume celebrity culture and mainstream media and walk around, however blind and ignorant, as entitled know-nothing
millennial Gods, in their youth and vitality and sense of immortality. lol
I am very interested in my fellow man's "out of the box" thinking and ideas and pieces of knowledge and discovery, and when you go out of the box or
outside the "norm" at the same time, in order to check your own sanity, it's important to subject these news maps of reality and understanding to our
That's where all the fun is, and that's the purpose of this thread.
My own strange concept idea, or one of many, which I'd like to share with you in this thread while hearing yours, is this.
I believe that we are already entering the omegapoint of the cosmogenesis of the noosphere (because of the internet and because the world is round),
where it's not a piece of technology or hardware, even biological, that will save the world from ourselves, but a great joke of some kind, that we
will all marvel at, because of its capacity to bring us to tears, first of sorrow and regret, and then in the hand that wipes away the tears from our
eyes, tears of absolute and utterly hilarity, almost to the point of madness, while leading us into sanity and the restoration and recovery of the
very best of the best that makes us human and, both human and divine even in spite of ourselves in our own prior stupidity and ignorance.
It will come in many forms, this eschaton of mirthful awareness and understanding, but it's of a very playful, loving and charming disposition which
delights in irony and paradigm-shifting thoughtforms and conceptions which can be expressed in language and transmitted at the speed of light to minds
and hearts all over the globe.
Waiting for us, undiscovered, is an idea that by it's very nature is an idea whose time has come.
But it cannot be only my idea or your idea alone, uncommunicated, unannounced. And if we cannot share it, then of what use is it? That's like hiding
your light under a bushel basket instead of placing it out on the lampstand so that all in the house may be given the light by which to see.
No doubt we're in strange times, both at the end and the beginning of history and on the very cusp of novelty.
Therefore, maybe it time for our tribe of sorts to regroup around the firelight and share what we know and have learned and to discuss what we do not
know but very much need to know if we are to survive, or even retain our own sanity in the face of it all, only the very thinnest slice of which we
remain hidden in, if only as a defense against the domain of all possible knowledge, outside the box.
What have you come up with in your own pursuit and quest regarding things that the rest of us might not have previously considered or if we did, were
unaware of it's farthest reaching implications and significance because sometimes the sacred lives in the apparently mundane.
It could be about absolutely anything, life, ET life, reality.
What do you think you know that most other people if not the rest of us, do not know or might not have previously considered?
Thank you for being you and for being here with me, with us. What do you got?
..... the fire crackles and sparks as if in anticipation, as everyone's glowing face looks to you in the dark.
