Well what if people join a forum like this to improve themselves?
I’m assuming here, hopefully correctly, that you are referring to the “Ones”?
I don’t believe they are here to improve themselves, as they very vocally come pre-equipped with an attitude of already having been enhanced by
spiritual revelation/alien contact/knowledge of pre-existence. How can an “enlightened” “One” improve their lot by arguing as to who and what
they are to ATS members? And if they weren’t
expecting that sort of response, well, they aren’t that “enlightened” are they?
You have access to more emotional and mostly illogical material than could be found anywhere else. On the internet people act like they
"feel" that feel is important to me because you get a more intimite look into somones mind...that you would get no where else.
And I agree with that statement. In any (relatively) unregulated forum (as in anyone with an opinion can add to the discussion, no matter what their
understanding of the subject matter) the reader will find logical, balanced replies mixed with emotional, heartfelt responses. Not to mention a
sprinkling of needy souls looking for confirmation of deeply held beliefs, no matter what the level or reasoning behind, or manner of corroboration,
that may be.
How often have we read member’s replies to “enlightening message” threads that just dive in at the deep end and agree completely with the
poster’s points and ideas?
OP: “I am a Pleidian. I have known this since leaving my employ at KFC!”
Reply: “OMG! Like that’s totally what I thought about myself, too! My lower astrals are strong in the Force. What about yours?”
That example is a little flippant maybe. But you see the fundamental route these threads take, and are designed
to take either consciously or
not, wherein they pull in unquestioning believers by the droves.
There is an underlying need for certain people to have their fears of living in an extraordinary, but as yet unexplained, life answered instantly. The
“Ones” are not the answer to this problem. Well, as yet they haven’t been.
Some people have suicidal parents, drug addicted siblings, and phobia ridden friends.
This backs up my examples of how the human psyche responds to emotional or psychological trauma, or how various psychoses are manifest by those who
suffer under them. As I said before, they are to be pitied, though the pity will not be accepted easily.
Sometimes keys are found in places like these "The dimonds in the rough"
Again, true. This thread:
to me, and many others, is an excellent example of how to approach the subject of enlightenment. The author, citizenc
, in my opinion, is
relating very real experiences. They are related in a rational and coherent manner, and though dealing with subjects that many will find extreme, the
tone of the thread never becomes sensationalistic.
In this thread, and certain others, we could well be reading of the expansion of the human experience.
If anyone is gonna help delusional people... you have to get your hands dirty.
Whilst I suggested that ATS, as a sounding board for radical ideas, may well assist those who are burdened with an imaginary responsibility to declare
their specialness to the world via an internet forum, ATS is not a self-help group. Think of more as a conspiratorial gladiatorial area. Some are
gonna end up as meat.
