Definitely. I've mostly noticed it here at ATS, with the recent creation of this forum and the amount of people posting about various
Many of my friends "in real life" are also interested in this stuff, but I think that's mostly my fault, because they are open-minded,
anti-authority and don't like organized religion (like myself), but they also don't actively pursue esoteric knowledge. So often times we have a
lot of conversation about things mostly that I read or study, and so many times I almost act like a channel or proxy in that way. I've been

In traditional psychology, it's very likely that the season in which you are born has early imprinting effects as to subtly mold certain traits, or
emphasize certain ones over others, etc. It's known that the release of various chemicals and hormones in your body are related to the amount of
