I know you didn't. I said it wasn't undestood, same as all paranormal things. Hence why it has always been discussed about here in the paranmormal
"Paranormal" means out of the ordinary, and consciousness is an everyday event.
Two topics you mentioned in your original post were: alternative healing (reiki, prayer, etc), out of body experiences. These are very much out of the
ordinary and not every day events. If they were everyday events, everybody would be witness to this or experience it daily. That isn't the case is
it, so it remains paranormal.
Right now you are using your consciousness to read what I am typing, I am in using it to type...
Yes, but I'm not having an out of body experience am I? I'm simply reading a post on the internet. Don't get carried away mate.
The topics generally covered here include ghosts, demons, and other out of the ordinary subjects.
Yes! Like out of body experiences, psychic healing and meditation.
I do not feel that consciousness gets the attention it deserves, and as SkyFloating mentioned, all discussion about it gets sent to
That's blatantly wrong. Rivergoddess' thread covering Oobe's has 1618 replies and is stickied in the Paranormal section. It's one of the most
popular threads in here. That hasn't been moved to the BTS section.
This topic needs serious discussion, and I do not feel the paranormal forum does it justice.
You can scan through the first page of this forum to find out what I'm talking about...
That's a fair point and everybody is entitled to his or her opinion.
I'm all for it, as are many others. Why stand in the way?
I'm not standing in the way. You don't seem to understand. You made a post suggesting another thread/section be created and for people to voice
their opinions. You said: "What does everyone think?" I did just that. I replied with my opinion. The fact that I disagree with you WHEN YOU ASKED A
QUESTION, seems to have gotten to you. Sorry about that
At the end of the day I don't care if 1 new section gets created or 100! It doesn't bother me one bit. All I did was say what I thought about your
idea. I feel it gets enough coverage in the paranormal section. BUT THAT'S MY OPINION ONLY!
Hope you get your way as you seem 'all for it.'
Have a good day.
