Hi everyone, first time poster. I have just started scouring through the ATS site here and I am somewhat amazed at everything that I have seen
written Some of it almost too outrageous for words, but some that really make you think. For most of my life, I have had a feeling of being
disconnected. I have remained more observant than I have been interactive. One big example is this post, which is very out of character for me, but
I felt the need to do it. I would agree that October does seem to be a crux in time. It almost feels like it is turning into a changing of the guard
if you will. I think the reason why so many people have been posting on various topics, not just here on ATS, but on other sites as well, is that an
awakening of sorts is beginning to take place. Of course, not everyone gets it, but I think as time marches on, more and more people will begin to
escape their narrow view of the world and open up the the different possibilities that exist. Having said that, I think it's also important to
remember that keeping an open mind is good, but don't leave it so open that your brains fall out, and I have been seeing a lot of this happening as
well. I tend to believe that almost anything is possible, however, I have to think logically as well, so I weigh the possibility of something
happening against the probability of it happening. I think this is necessary in most cases. It's this capacity for rational thought that separates
us from the rest of the animals in this world. I think more of us should keep that in mind when posting with complete conviction about anything.
There is nothing wrong with entertaining the fact that you could be wrong, while still holding onto your belief that you are not. But I digress, I do
believe that we are about to see a shift in not only the social climate of the world, but the political, economical and religious aspects as well, and
October may very well be that tipping point, so I appreciate the OP bringing this point up.
