Greetings brothers, sisters
It didn't occur to me the ATS-Family expected a decent introduction from its members... until now that is. So I guess the moment has come to
enlighten you all about (this forum-member-part-of-) me
I've been reading the boards for a couple of years now and signed up somewhere along the way, but hardly ever interfered in your conversations -
although there were some rare moments I couldn't resist the urge to reply (and that appears more often, these days).. Part of this absence is due to
a lack of time to spend here - I do have a life to live on this globe :-) And ATS, as you all know, swallows time - even when not contributing .
Besides, I always used to be more of a booklover (real books: paper, ink, author, publisher – if existing...) a tendency that slowly but surely
changed, along with the Zeitgeist and my internet connection.
Nevertheless, I'd like to grab this moment to thank all of you for the tremendous amount of information - discussions, theories, ideas, lessons,
thoughts, facts, contemplations, refusals, reflections, hypotheses, views ... In one way or another, they all contributed in my strive to sustain a
clear and optimal conscience - a Large Thank You for that.
The moments I had to ‘deny annoyance’ I’m gladly willing to take with it ;-) At last, being able to understand why peoples truths and opinions
differ only brings more wisdom and insight. As there is: knowing when not to react
Regarding my reasons for being here, I guess my presence at ATS an sich can explane, not? I mean, look at the content of this fora and you see (part
of) my interests. Let’s say I tend to approach life and its phenomena from a critical point of view, although I don’t consider myself a skeptic
being. Meaning, I don’t just buy everything – that also counts for my attitude towards modern western science. Although I do acknowledge its
importance, I’m convinced you can’t prove every aspect of life purely with empirical evidence (science doesn’t pretend this either, but
sometimes its dogmas can be blinding). So I expand my amount of factors that influence my beliefs with less provable ones… But you’ll find out, in
I’m, as most of you I guess, mainly interested in filling the gaps and repairing the misbeliefs of our contemporary overall knowledge: errors and
questionmarks in science, history, archaeology, astronomy, (meta)physics, astronomy, cultural oriëntated world views … I think, hope and believe
mankind is heading towards a global paradigm shift – at least the world seems to need it.
Anyway, I’ll end this first little monologue by declaring myself an optimistic figure, who’s interested in bringing more harmony and understanding
in every aspect of life. Oneness above strive.
We might meet again somewhere on the boards, until then: enjoy life & prosperity for all.
