[You just wanted it to be true, eschewing logical analysis in favour of flat-out belief.
You dont know me very well so I will tell you that I do not have the least interest in creating fantasy based assumptions.
[ Probably because his views lined up with yours, and in accepting him as true validated your beliefs
You could not be more off base, first of all I am a Sannyasin, I need no outside validation of my existence and have no belief system in the general sense as you know it. Furthermore I would not assume from the little I know of JT to 'lineup' as you said.
[ - you found a kindred spirit, a kind of survivalist messiah, sent from the future to justify your fringe beliefs.
Hardly a kindred spirit, as he is still from a future which has yet to reach a Level one Society. As for need of a messiah, as I said I am a Sannyasin and take full responsibility for myself. Perhaps it is you that lives in a world of what 'I' consider to be fringe beliefs...
