Interesting so far.
Sorry, I typed this out originally on a PS3, so I'll explain myself a little bit better now that I am on a keyboard.
For years I had read about a lot of things. Ghosts, poltergeists, aliens, UFO sightings, 2012, Nostradamus, Atlantis, Mars, the Moon, the apocalypse,
9/11, shadow government type things, and various political scandals and ploys.
I was young then, and a lot of all of that didn't mean much more to me than a cool read about alien invasions and end of the world scenarios. It was
more like a video game to me then.
I grew up quite a bit in a short amount of time for various reasons, and of course that caused me to take a more serious look at everything I had ever
researched, even passingly. I kind of threw aside less serious subjects (like atlantis, etc.) realizing that the stories were a bit too fantastical,
even if they were still possible, and there were more important things to concentrate on.
I am 22 now. One day, about two years ago, after taking a serious look at the media, the internet, movies, politicians, and so forth, I felt like I
could see this big plan in action and everything made sense for a half an hour or so. At that point, I became very scared and paranoid because I
thought I could see this big plan playing out for the worse. The kind of plan where you realize that your life and the life of your friends, family,
and the people who knew what you knew could be in danger (although a less in your face danger in most ways). After that 30 minutes my clarity kind of
faded, and I realized I needed to look at all possibilities of situations so that I can be as equipped with as much knowledge, however insane at
times, as possible to try and fight against whatever it was my mind saw that day.
I wanted to know more about your experiences with any kind of situation like this and find out if this is common amongst people studying in these
One thing I can say is this- I watched V for Vendetta again after that point, and it made much more of an impact that time
