Hello my name is Foxstriker, been a member since 03, and earlier, but under another name.
I guess I should get back to my ramblings.
I used to come to ATS back in the day because I felt like my opinion mattered, and in some instances it probably did, but a while ago I came to the
realization that maybe it was a waste of time. Not because of the worth while discussions and the posts of information, but because of the flaws in
the very people that I had come to admire that had the capability of saving the world from ignorance.
I came to this conclusion not very easily, but through research of posts and what have you, It always came down to sadly enough *the very area I'm
posting on* the gray area. No matter what answer I came up with or they did, there was never any comprisises never an answer, it was a sad truth that
we are the bi product of the machine that intend us to be such a bi product. We are suppost to be the voice of reason, understanding and logic, but in
retrospect if we do have such talents, it means we also have the qualities of the opposite, strong beliefs in logic equate to being hard headed, and
denying truth when it hits us in the face because the answer is not logical. An outstanding talent for understanding of what it is to reason with our
fellow man means nothing if the other person can't be reasoned with.
I found that what really controls the world is not what can be seen but what only an epiphany can bring, for a small moment in time like an opening in
the very fabric of space can this truth be seen, then it closes on us before we even have a chance to react to it.
I saw during this small truth that government although run by many a human, is a living organism, it breaths the very essence of what it is to be
human, and although we are a species based on individual thinking, we trully are a hive mind, we are all connected to each other through communication
and sub communication, the many people we talk to for different opinions are the very same thoughts of this symbiotic hive mind.
I guess what I'm trying to ask is, are we actually such a hive mind in which we are all connected yet deny such things do the fact that we have logic
and reason capable of different thought at the same time *just like our brain* or is it that we are self destructive individuals in which although we
have people we can talk, we really are trully alone.
I ask this question more for the fact that I have not come up with a strong viable answer
