I only felt really happy once I think. That's maybe part of the problem, I felt true bliss. Like heroine. If I would want to pursuit that then... I don't know, maybe I should. Face your fears...biggest risk greatest reward...
So many room for consideration marks "...". I'm thinking today. Lots of thinking pauses.
I know it's time for another ATS break, but I will miss you. Just if I don't write a while, you know it's planned.
Starting Urch...tomorrow maybe. I don't know what the result will be so it's a bit tough to find motivation. A best case scenario is bound to be destroyed but it helps, I don't have any scenarios that makes it hard.
Wtf do I want? What am I doing? I always postpone it I don't even know anymore what it is.
Now I get comfy with cookies...one last time.

Peeps,

It's OK to take a break. We'll be here arguing about Trump or Obama or anti-gravity just like always!


Pondering and thinking to/for oneself is a blessing. We all need to recharge. That is one reason I'm not here every day. I would be too but I take time. You should too.


As a mathematician, Pólya worked on a wide range of problems, including the study of heuristics, or how to solve problems. When you read "How to Solve It," it feels like you're taking a guided tour of Pólya's mind. This is because his writing is metacognitive – he writes about how he thinks about thinking. And metacognition is often the heart of problem solving.

Pólya's problem solving plan breaks down to four simple steps:

1.Make sure you understand the problem.
2.Make a plan to solve the problem.
3.Carry out the plan.
4.Check your work to test your answer.

phys.org, Sept. 12, 2017 - These four easy steps can make you a math whiz.

I really can't make this stuff up! I really think phys.org is pulling the biggest troll on me of all time! Seems like what I'm thinking ends up on their site in a day or two. Then there are things that I'm *not* thinking about that end up pulling me off onto a tangent line of thinking which ends up in one big Meta Café line of thought one way or another. From slinkys to Neanderthals, dinosaurs to graphene, music and math, superconducting magnets and supercritical CO2 energy production, ancient text to the Larsen ice shelf, I swear they are scanning my mind! I just chuckle about it now.

Anyway, Peeps, don't lose heart! Take your time. Sip the wine, don't chug it! Say "hi" to your room mates!

As Teddy Savalas says, "Who love you, baby?"

How are you always so helpful? That plan could work for more than just maths.
I still have the feeling I miss something important, if I don't check here what's up. Stupid, I know.
1 understand the problem
2 make a plan
3 solve
4 test results
Well I will leave 4 to the ...imaginary audience

It is not me! The Meta Cafe provides. The dude abides! We are being "spoken" to and we all are "in tune" with the broadcast. Like I said, I can't make this up; I just notice the message.

And share. Because we're all in this together. I like our tribe! I will always share. So go ahead, take a break. The crumbs will be here when you come back! It is OK to step back. We can fight wheneverz. Lurk if you have to! Don't feel the need to respond to everything... it'll do you good! Promise!!

What they don't show in Harry Potter is how much sacrifices it takes to make magic... well they kind of do. I'm ashamed that I like it.
Sorry I keep rambling after you showed me the door, but I am not ready yet.
Have you ever been abducted?
How did you make the BT appear? Or was that Reverbs?

I might repeat myself but it would be so fantastic if we could at least put the question "do they exist" to grave. We might not instantly know who, what, how, but if we could cut the crap. That would be so amazing.
People died for this. And I understand why. Some are knee-deep in sh1t if the truth comes out it would really be a new world. But brave? Might be the opposite happens and people cuddle up to their "leaders"?

a reply to: Peeple

Abducted? Yeah, I know of at least two periods of missing time. One was like a trance when I got back home. I must have been gone over an hour or so. I walked behind my friend's house to investigate a really bright light. Next thing I know, I am in my back yard, locking the gate, then going inside. I got a, "Where have you been?!!" and all I could do was say, "I'm tired. I'm going to bed."

The second time I've posted here on ATS somewhere. Basically, left at home during a family outing. I had to beg to be left behind. Anyway, after my day, I was lying on the floor in the living room starting to fall asleep. I snap awake as I "feel" a presence looking for me in the my downstairs basement. When the presence locates me (it seemed... bemused?), I can feel it walking out of my room and splitting into 3 distinct individuals. I tell myself, "You can move. Just do it slowly." And get my shoulder off the floor but there is no way to get up before they climb the stairs--I then jerk like trying to get up fast only to fall back on my back. They are opening the door between the downstairs and living room where I was lying in front of the TV. I know that there is no escape. I tell myself, "Don't look at them! They freak you out. They remind you of bugs." I shut me eyes as I hear them encircle my head (one on each shoulder, one standing over me). Then a thing, like a wand!... really!!... comes down and touches my forehead. There is a loud crunch. Then I am lying on the couch (had been on the floor), getting up, in a full sweat, running around the house closing all the curtains, windows, and doors! The adrenalin rush was genuine--I was in full "flight" mode. Tears streaming down my face; hyperventilating; d@mn near a full on freak out. I refuse to look outside.

Then a voice inside my head said, "Turn on the TV. There is some music that you like on." And I did. David Bowie, Changes; Quiet Riot, Mental Health; commercials; U2, Gloria. All back to back. I start to calm down. I fall asleep with the lights on after checking all the doors were locked, again.

By my reaction alone, They are real. They have spaceships. They seem to have an agenda with you as a tool to be put to some purpose. I remember once screaming at them to leave me alone and that I was not going to do anything they asked me to. They regretfully obeyed my wishes. I have not had contact with them since. It is kind of sad. But I got my life back to waste as I see fit. Oh boy, did I ever waste a bunch of it! Which is why I only drink beer now.

My math thing happened 25 years later so I think that is all my doing. Anything up to then was always a question. So I used alcohol to keep from doing anything except going to jail and rehab. Nearly died a couple times. Somehow managed to keep a job. Then one last stint in rehab which I took seriously. No jail; No problems; No visitors, ever since.

The BBT was a sighting I had after talking with a random dude at the bar about nuclear fusion. Then on the walk back home from the bar I saw the craft. Well, I saw through it! I think Reverbs kept them from "erasing" the experience while it happened which is one of the BBT tricks they do. I don't know why I got to see one.

Having had an experience with The Other, the BBT seemed truly "human" in everything it did.

... Continued

[Speaking of rambling, hehehe]

The period of "not doing anything" was all the things you are supposed to do as an adult. Marriage, kids, house, etc. I spent that time mountain biking, snowboarding, wakeboarding, playing guitar, wacky tabacy, met some fun guys that blew my mind, and avoided anything being respectable. I did not feel it was a good thing to pass on the strangeness to a next generation.

Which is kind of strange, huh? Here you are looking for strangeness and woo in the MetaCafe and I'm feeling I've finally "gotten over it"! Life is strange because in a way the woo has yet to begin! A tale from TEOT is one thing but the entire world... well, you now have my attention!

The old manners of dealing The Other does not work in Modern Society. There is too much instant interconnectedness that happens so if World Wide Woo were to happen, then it would be trending somewhere. I think that is why there are BBT sightings around the world. You can almost call it a pre-cognitive event is being sensed right now. Which is a form of woo.

Great. Now I'm sounding like Soren Kierkegaard talking about the self! Too many words for a concept does not a clear description make!

Keep watching the skis!!

Thanks for sharing. Much appreciated.
And in a weird way it gave me...hope I guess. Hard to describe. Maybe it will be okay. I wouldn't be scared I would probably want to sniff their arses. Full examination & three hours interview, plus then of course I would want to see the ship.
And make one of the other guys (they're always three, yours, mine were also three, Romanek's, ...
F*ck I just checked if I spelled his name right and he was charged with childporn?) film the whole thing.

Entirely unrelated, you know "The Mist"?

The Mist? I never heard of them. Techno? Dance? I know they are not punk!

Oh, that horrible Stephan King "book"? They've tried to remake that thing like three times. *Points* "Look! They're over there beating that dead horse!!"

I read the "book" and more of King's stuff up until It then stopped. Had enough. Went the other direction and delved into Literature. Much more rewarding! Makes all those d@mn books I lug around with me worthwhile. I tend give the other stuff a read every now and then but "pay it forward" by leaving them at lending libraries for others to read.

Anyhoo, yeah, I grew up in the 80s so I've heard of The Mist a few times. 'Sup?

 


(Ramble Warning)

Day is half over and been in meetings all morning figuring out what work I have to do while 2 of my team members (there are 4 of us) head out on vacation. GAH! I want to hang out, read xkcd comics, and bad ATS threads (really, like 3 lines is all anybody can do now? I remember pages from Slayer with multiple links. There was one yesterday with a link, "Hey look what they found... sad!" but no quote from the story, no real set up, no indication why the tread was important, sad, sort of). Oh no, I actually have to work?! Work!! I think I will pull the ultimate and write down all my job duties and weekly/monthly procedures, then when the time comes, 2-week warning! Time to fly! You are on your own, suckas! Sayonara! Konichiwa, noon time beer and your other buddies!

Ah drink. The solution to, and the cause of, many of life's problems!

You're talking to a guy who wears a watch!

Netflix? I don't even have a cable modem at home! Well, I'll admit, I do have a fancy LGE 4G wireless thingy but I killed my computer on accident and have not fixed it so I just use bandwidth on my mobile.

Yeah to Frida and her day! Even the Swedish ex-pop singer get a YAY! We all know, "There's something going on"!

Made it through the week without attacking somebody. Like the U25 mice, just being all edgy and strange not making contact with people then snapping at the oddest sh#. Like "chewing with your mouth open", or "whistling a tune--badly". Real psycho killer reasons. I think having 4 days off did not do me good; just more critical of people around me; like, sneezing and not covering your mouth; or taking a pee and not washing your hands. GAH! Just wall me up in my apartment, leave me alone, and give me a hamster tube to the bar so I do not have to interact with others. I guess an internet connection too!

Yeah to Friday! I like where this heading! (Maybe I should cut down on my caffeine intake! Or get some nutrients or something). Back to the bar to stop thinking of this place [work] for a couple of days.

I'm so proud of you! People, right? Horrible sneezing, dirty nuisances.

I just watched the entire season and have to say it's good. "They're feeding it"

It's 1:17am and my neighbour plays piano. An instrument I really used to love, but he sucks so much... it's just a crazy "ding di-di-di ding" he has zero talent that's a fact. And doesn't know what he's doing, probably drunk.
I wonder if it's above, or left, or, right, or further away and just really loud? I also wondering someone will give him sh1t for that, calling the cops or something? Do people do that? Get him he raped that poor piano!

Had the cops called on me for playing a Marshall amp at 2'oclock (they go to ten), for like two minutes! The band Cracker used it when they toured AK!

Do you know him?? One up and play guitar real loud and sloppy! I did that once to my college dorm mate and he smoked me out on weekends afterwards!

Zero talent lets you know that you have talent!!

-Peace

Loved your comment in the abduction thread of muzzleflash. But oh boy did he go hysterical quickly and what I always love the most about self proclaimed sceptics is how they invent these details which make it impossible to discuss the reality behind the experience.
"Technology that distorts reality to make it appear dreamlike..." sure, sure....he is sleeping sees two lights after waking up from a weird dream and immediately knows what race they are and what technological capabilities they have? How?
After my possible abduction at least I had marks in a string around my wrist, but that also doesn't prompt me to say they're using magnetised iron to bind you on a 360° turntable... it's so sad we can't talk about the interesting aspects of it because every rational approach and question is immediately trolling.
And the three again.

The other dude said he gets abducted tomorrow. I would be so royaly pissed if that would actually happen. Then if the aliens would try to contact me again: "why don't you play with your friend in Orleans, pricks?"
I'm super serious about that, it's not jealousy or anything, I'm the Queen of the milkyway if they want to make any disclosure/invasion whatever happen on my turf, bitches gotta show me respect first....

It's all good I guess I mean it's exactly what I said will happen: people go crazy, more and more have their own encounters, that's okay so far. The thing is I still am pretty sure these beings aren't from outer space. And we need to address the problem that they have their biggest impression and impact on us in our weakest states, sleep, intoxicated, close to death....
That's what the old mystics were contacting through fasting, meditation etc, they're not new to our ecosystem. Shamans as you pointed out too.
So solve the mystery of three and we might actually have a lead to... something.

Hehehe. That is a question: how Nordics? If I saw something with blue skin the last thing going through my mind is, "Gee, they look like they're from Belgium!" LOL! But yeah, what a reaction to woo! I think I would have been calm... mostly calm... as I have had some encounters with the wide world of woo. But you never know until.

The Orleans... sigh. If only, right? That was about as good as the "Here is my u-tube vid"!

I was trying to keep Muzzle a little focused. He was lashing out and wanted to remind him that the forums are open and there are going to be those that will not agree with you. That is why I believe his story! You really can't fake the adrenalin. I really like what Reverbs said. It was a nice summary of Meta Thread 1. Once that threshold is crossed how can you be certain of what happened?

The three is interesting. I had an encounter with three of them. Like said, they were one being (mentally linked?) that split into three. I have a flash (dream? memory? IDK), I'm in the woods, turn a corner and see two of them. Later, I remember saying "I saw two owls" but even as I said it, I knew it was not true. Maybe they need the extra one to triangulate or add more engram writing power to make the new memory stick? Just a couple of thoughts about it in general.

What about your September Ends thread? It is right around the corner. Man, I never even go to see Wonder Woman! That would be my luck!

Speaking of woo and such. It seems like everything got turned up! Just looking over ATS: fake sky, abductions (like no less than 3!), Mother Earth in fury (EQs, volcanoes), somebody found the Berenstein ME. The woo is climbing. Maybe the 23rd is going to be something after all!

I'm tagging this here.

It is a very interesting idea and I want to track it

arxiv.org - Linear Algebraic Number Theory, Part 1: Foundations.

German guy, takes the Fundamental Theorem of Algebra (primorial prime function), and converts integers to reals by taking the natural log on both sides! Really cool trick! Calls LANT. Wonder where he is going. He stopped his intro at Riemann. Duh, duh, DUHN!

Well in German you call someone blau (=blue) if their drunk, mead nordics, make sense, right? Then they're all blue from vitamin d deficiency due to the small number of sun hours during the winter... it's kind of logical.

You know the star trek episode with those binary beings, which are two working as one entity? Maybe that's similiar? I actually like the thought that maybe it's for triangulation in our 3d world, I can totally see how I could make a story out of it.

Don't pressure me with that stupid prediction I made, if I learned one thing from the nine and everybody who ever made similiar claims it never works. Yet I try it over and over again, maybe if we just get enough people to believe hard enough... But, I think I kept it so vague I'll just pull a few things on their hairs into a circle and tie 'em up and say: there.
Gosh how I wish it would be spaceships and ET and new technology and cargo culture social stuff and... *sigh

Sorry this if off topic. But figure you could use a good laugh at my expense.

I went to my bank to check my balance before heading out to the bier-haus. There was construction going on so after I got passed that was two blocks away and my mind started to wander. I was thinking about the LANT paper I posted and thinking how I would use it. Mind drifting over math, half-way there, some people walk towards me. I move over a step. And just like the fool in the Tarot deck, tumbled off the sidewalk! I actually fell completely down. I was completely embarrassed as the lady I was walking towards seconds earlier asked, "Are you OK?" I think I got back to feet with a WTH?!! face on. I thought my glasses went flying off but they were on my face!

Not just playing the fool. But being one too!! Truly, head in the clouds and oblivious of the edge I fell off! Hehehe. All before even drinking a single beer!
