What is it that makes you need to search for the unknown?
God? Aliens? Micro-organisms? MACRO-ORGANISMS?
What is it that just makes you need to learn more and more? Even beyond that, what is it that drives you to believe in what you believe. If you are
so firm in your beliefs as you claim, then why do you come to AboveTopSecret.com? What is that ONE thing that you need clarified?
So, here's a template to go by. Take it or leave it.
State your beliefs without backing them up with evidence.
Here, evidence is defined as an outside source of information; meaning, whatever you know now without any sources or tags or anything.
Answer the question, "What makes you search?" Feel free to be as vague or as specific as you will.
Allow me to be your role model.
I believe in a single and static universe with two* layers. I believe in God, a god beyond all reality, physical and spiritual. I believe in Truth
and Loyalty over Success and Wealth. I believe in directness over politics - meaning you won't see me be nice or butter-up my words. I believe in a
happy heart but a mind of sorrow. I believe in 10% of what society tells me. I believe "taking offense" is a natural human thing. That being
said, I think "taking offense" is boring and a sign of dull-mindedness. Yes, I get offended sometimes. I get over it quick. Sometimes quicker
than I can get offended. I'm well trained.
I believe in tangents. They're everywhere. So are circles. They have to be, or else where would tangents be?
I believe in thinking above reading. I believe in imagination above reading. Having said that, reading is an excellent way to use up life points.
Once you use up all your life points, you are dead. Hence the term, "Zero."
I believe in believing in everything. Nothing cannot be believed. That having been said, there is a whole lotta "Nothing" out there.
Knowing that I am going to die is what makes me search. I am no longer afraid of death as I was. Now I am curious. I've replayed thousands of ways
to die in my mind. I feel as though I've felt the transition to death hundreds of times. I would go on to explain these things, but if you're
anything like I was a few years ago, you would have daymares. But, because I am going to die, I feel it is my obligation to earn as many Truth points
as possible. That being said, I've used backspace as an honesty-check many times during this process.
All in all and without joking, I believe in love. And I found love. My wife and my soon to be born child. I want them to know that I am the master
of my domain and that whatever I choose to be my domain, it simply is. I want them to know that I am a fair and honest and good master of my domain.
I want them to know that I know that I can make mistakes like anyone else and not have to hide them. I want them to know that they don't have to be
afraid of life or death. I want them to know that God loves them. I want them to know that whatever other life there is out there, the peons of that
civilization love them, too. Maybe even the elites. There could be a civilization out there beyond the class system! Who knows. Regardless, I want
them to know these things. I want them to be full of love and intelligence and wit and yet at the same time, seeming as masters of their domains, be
able to humble when it is time to humble and bow when it is time to bow.
And because I love them so much, I am even more connected to the world. I recognize my own humility, but also expect the same from everyone else.
Humility and honor. NOT FALSE HUMILITY which makes me want to gag about as bad as a soap opera and fake honor which makes me want to break someone's
So, I search for intelligence. I search for heart. I search for love. I search for true knowledge and true wisdom. I search for true wit. I
search for those who can realize that the border's society has placed on us, be it by the government, or through knowledge, or through spirituality,
or what have you - these borders are only as a guide.
In conclusion, I ask "What makes you search?"
*two, not as in "two fingers" but more like "this finger is split into two".
I edited because I talk like a redneck sometimes. I also edited to clarify on the handy-dandy asterisk.
