I find it strange that we have to label everything we don't understand.

Starpeople... Indigo whatevers...

Personally, all of this is generally made up. I do NOT deny that people are special and have longings and could be different.

Isn't it enough to accept that you are special and not have to put a label on it?

These ideas might actually be fairly mainstreamed and allow people to advance if we didn't try to build a mythology around it.

Sorry if this offends, it was not intended to do so. I don't doubt that some people are very special. However, I doubt the elaborate theories.

Wow, this must be an important thread to both sides - look how its exploded in the last 24 hours.

The question has answered itself just by the shear volume of responses.

I don't believe there are any artifacts (other than simple tools) made by Homo sapiens sapiens that don't have some spiritual/religious signifigance. All one needs do is investigate early cave paintings like that in Altamira, Spain or Lascaux in France. Even older are the markings the San people (Bushmen) left all over South Africa.

I think religion is a clue to finding some conclusions to our discussion.

Religion is based on the idea of help from elsewhere than here

Simplistic, but that's me.

Prove to me the Eiffel Tower exists. Show me pictures or bring me witnesses and I can claim them fakes and liars.

Either take me to it or bring it to me. That is the only way to prove without a doubt that it exists. That I can experience it with my own senses.

Now, if you can figure out a way to step inside my mind (or any other here), to see the world as I see it, to experience what I have, you simply won't ever have the proof you want so badly.

Honestly, it's really that simple. And I'm not claiming that I believe every idea put forth in this thread. But some are relevant to my experience. Which is to say I don't believe you need to be an "alien" to experience things I've experienced or to see the world as I see it.

Which is why earlier I suggested you take the journey yourself. It's the only proof you'll ever find or need.

It's amazing to me how popular a topic like this is. Are many of you really so paranoid that you're not human?


It's not paranoia, it's just a different way of looking at things. Instead of ETs it could be angels or even "God," it really makes no difference.

The question is, What is "You"? If you find a good enough answer for that then you would probably come to much more bizarre truths than the fact than you are an inter-dimensional being, which you are.


Of course we want to know where we come from, so lets focus on trying to find out where we as humans come from instead of confusing ourselves with false truths.


Where the elements themselves came from, how our bodies evolved, or from where our sensation of being conscious arises? A lot of different kinds of ingredients go into making a "human being."

If I may? The world is not sucking nor is it dying nor will it cease providing what we as living beings need to survive in the foreseeable future (Barring the ever-present, looming of chance meeting with interplanetary objects and such
)

Society on the other hand is crumbling. But not for the first time or the last. And it is painful as it is the cradle of our culture and identity. But it isn't the end of us as a species. It's only change.

As I see it, the transition need be no more difficult than growing from a child into an adult. Difficult, trying and strenuous, but most of us here survived that just fine. I think the changes in the world we be much the same on a much larger scale.

Wow man, I feel just like you do. You actually took everything I was going to write, and wrote it yourself... This is weird... but I like it... and my whole life is starting to make sense to me now...

This is Freudian, psychology, sense of purpose etc. etc. Feeling your alien or more special somehow then everyone else and having powers is pretty much telling me you have a healthy ego, maybe to healthy. The purpose part goes into religion of sorts. The need to feel have a reason to be alien, was left here by the whatever race to do something special. This is a religious zealot of sorts. Its ok.. Its fine. I would just think many people here would be intelligent enough to identify this state of mind..

not gonna read through this whole thread!

my two cents, if that;

I'm starting to notice a pattern with people that if they do not feel special, they need to manufacture something special about themselves. It seems quite possible to me that all people have these moments/qualities throughout their entire lives, but take them for granted OR, they just don't see said qualities in the op as exceptionally, um, exceptional.
allow myself to introduce...myself


That being said, none of my outlooks on life are written in stone except for one, so there may be something to this. It correlates with so many different aspects of so many different spiritual/religious groups, be it in a negative or positive way, it can't be discounted. sigh.

1) You always had a feeling that you don't belong here on this planet.
I remember thinking there was a place where others knew the secrets. Had the answers. I wanted to find that place. But I didn't feel I was an alien. Or that I didn't belong on the planet. I wondered where I was before this. But I didn't feel like I was a tourist or visitor
2) You've always felt being very different from humans.
I felt very different from my family. But I never felt like I was different from most people. Actually I felt quite average, but misunderstood

3) You have a strong longing to "go home", although you don't know where home is (but its' not on this planet). I have been obsessed with the entire concept of home. All my life

4) You often tend to watch humans and think "Why are they making things so complicated? It's really not that complicated."

I find people extremely fascinating.. wanted to understand the psychology of behavior from the moment I understood what it is. First came watching, then Astrology, then majored and graduated in Psychology. Art was also a focus.

5) You have a strong sense of purpose - that you are on this planet for a reason. I remember saying to myself at a young age "I am special"... but over the course of my life, have realized I am not.

6) You may posses supernatural abilities: telepathy, clairvoyance, clairsentience, super empathy, etc. yes.
but after all that I still feel quite human.
Why is addiction part of the equation? I missed the reasoning behind that.

now that makes me mad.. I edit and it goes back to the original unedited version. Why is that?

I gotta say, I dug on the "You are all Human" thread a lot more, purely from what it had to say. It was far less alienating, that's for sure, no pun intended.

Especially since I fit most, or all, of the things listed in this OP. I've always been proud to say that those things are what make me human.

I like being human, I like setting myself apart from other humans and coming together with other humans.

I think I'll keep being human, thank you.

Use this information at your own risk! I accept no liability if your ideology comes crashing down around you with accompanying consequences!

Explanation: You ask and I quote "Here's some pertinent questions:


* What was it that made us so radically 'different' from all other species on earth?

* What caused us to think not only of our own personal needs, but of others as well?

* What made us so adept at tool-making?

* How did we manage to create religions so early in our history that they date back tens of thousands of years?

* Why are we all so inventive (creative)?

* Why do we insist on competing with each other in all facets of our society as a means to better our lives?"

And so....."Here are some pertinent answers!:....

RE:* What was it that made us so radically 'different' from all other species on earth?

Answer: Evolutionary forces over massive time period in various environments.

RE: * What caused us to think not only of our own personal needs, but of others as well?

Answer: Self awareness and the ability of mirror neurons.

RE:* What made us so adept at tool-making?

Answer: dexterous hands and good eye hand coordination all working for a large hominid brain.

RE: * How did we manage to create religions so early in our history that they date back tens of thousands of years?

Answer: Culture which transcends time via outliving those that originated,nurtured and fostered it.

RE:* Why are we all so inventive (creative)?

Answer: Necessity is the mother of all invention.

Re:* Why do we insist on competing with each other in all facets of our society as a means to better our lives?

Answer: Limited resources vs overpopulation.

Personal Disclosure: Hope that helps clear that up.

souls / spirits are a religious concept.
its a big ask / stretch to imply that they are alien, which is what you seem to be doing.
where do you make the connection between the two??? why does your source seem to believe that they are the same thing???

How many times have you posted now to stop this thread?

Consider it a Faith based thread/topic.

This is my Faith - my belief - it has as much right to be discussed as any other Faith belief.

There is definitely something to this line of thought. At the very least a spiritual belief helped our chances of survival somehow. It must be more than that though.

I've always equated Aliens, Angels, Demons and the like as being the same thing, just a different time in history and a different terminology. It just makes sense.

I started looking into "Indigo Children" after I watched your videos. I must say that I have lots of characteristics that she mentioned. And I see my child having characteristics of being a Crystal Child. I have to say that it is all exciting....I always knew I was different.

My favourite part about being a human is seeing other people, like me, but lonely, sad, or dilluted enough to believe they're in some way "Special" or more "unique" than the next guy/gal.

My favourite part about being human is that sometimes people cling to the worst ideas or notions, because in some way or another something in their life was lacking or did not meet their expectations- Or continues to do so.

My favourite part about being human is that I know there will always be someone to exploit those vulnerable, or damaged, or ill, or out of mind, or eccentric, or simply suffering from illusions of grandeur.

My favourite part about being human is that, no matter what anyone may say that rationally counters arguments that "Feelings" are proof- They're ignored.

My favourite part about being human, is my inability to escape how little I can respect my fellow man who may follow fairy tales, preach lies, or accept them as truths.
