You have to put it in context, is all (OP).

Every day I say, to Whom It May Concern, "Thank you for my role in this AMAZING GAME."

Every time I wake up here, it seems so real!! Wow. It is SO cool.

The game's a trip. Like most virtual realities, it's filled with the craziest bunch of nutcases who need to get real lives, better nutrition, and seriously laid, than can be believed from the outside. They run amuck like moths bouncing off the walls, and make all kinds of pronouncements and organize themselves in scales of power/control. Hysteria is fun for them. They love this game too. They just forget it's a game is all.

You can feed or poison yourself. It is still a stunningly beautiful world, filled with beautiful creatures and nature. The simplest things can be wonderful. Every day is another chance to run through it all, and you choose your game experience by what you focus on, filter out. You "pay" attention. Give those virtual coins to people, issues and things that deserve the support.

To those lost in the VR, it's crazy and chaotic and downright frightening.
To the rest, it's just another day.
Make of it what you will. :-)

Yes the world seems to have gone insane .... although NOT over night or in just a couple of months.

The way I see it is, that people are generally bussy with themselves instead of others / the world.

Chaos will come and go, that's an Universal Law, one cannot do anything about that but trying to keep your act together.

Seeds of Chaos or Hate will grow into monsters. Seeds of Structure or Love will grow to be Wonderful Creations.

It's all up to each individual to focus (and thus create that) on positive outcomes. Fear will eventually eat you away from the inside out .....

You write: "It will happen again if you do not listen....... " People tend to listen to no one but themselves (look at the history of mankind) and not always for the best of reasons ......

Let's hope the 'mindset' of the majority on this planet will change from 'ego' into 'collective oneness' ..... THAT would give some suprising outcome!

Peace!

Dear Gorman91,

You have been in isolation for so long you have forgotten what the world was like. Welcome back to reality. There has always been this crap everywhere around the world. It was less televised in the past because of Paris Hilton, but since she was replaced with a clone the world has fell into darkness. You must bring Paris Hilton back in order for everyone to gaze upon her stupidity and do the opposite.

I wish you the best of luck on your quest.

You are way over opinionated. Instead of taking the great message out of his "rant" you turned it into something bad. Way to go for focusing on all the negative. Your life must be pretty crap to come on here and spread hate.

You mean just as you have done?

I don't think it is ok, for a thread to appear every other day by somebody who is showing disregard towards other members who participate here.

Obviously we have different opinions, and I'm sticking to mine.

I feel where you are coming from bro, I have to pause too sometimes and quit immersing myself in doom and gloom. When I first joined ATS I was going to use WE'RE ALL GONNA DIE for my member name as both a humorous and accurate representation of how I feel these days. I have wondered if these were truly historic tribulations, especially in terms of frequency and ubiquitousness, or is our continued increasing connection to each other and events via technology, brought us more "in your face" reality than we are accustomed to. I have pulled back to examine this objectionably and it is in my opinion that there truly is more going on AND we all see it happening faster thru our technological senses. Given this, you are still right in that we can't all freak out. Survivors of tragedy are usually the ones that can remain calm, collected and sensible.
The notion of spreading this vibe is unsettling too. Not that I don't appreciate/desire being informed, but keeping the awareness in check within myself, and not letting it be the beginning of every conversation I have, is important too.
I find it strange, and I guess somewhat human, that there is a part of me that subtly cheers inside, for catastrophe(excluding loss of lives), so that a new paradigm may arise, unite us, and put us on a better path. Hmmmm, does that sound a bit Zebrinski or neoconish? I did say catastrophe EXCLUDING loss of life. But hopefully you know what I mean. Anyway, I think this internal desire for drastic change sometimes fuels the frustration and conveyance thereof.
Additionally, I believe there is the angle of vicariousness with people too, as spoken by Mahnard of Tool:

"Killed by the husband" ...
"Drowned by the ocean" ...
"Shot by his own son" ...
"She used a poison in his tea,
Then (she) kissed him goodbye"
That's my kind of story
It's no fun til someone dies.

Don't look me at like I am a monster
Frown out your one face, but with the other (you)
Stare like a junkie into the TV
Stare like a zombie while the mother holds her child,
Watches him die,
Hands to the sky cryin "why, oh why?"

Cause I need to watch things die from a distance
Vicariously, I live while the whole world dies
You all need it too - don't lie.

Why can't we just admit it?
Why can't we just admit it?
We won't give pause until the blood is flowin'
Neither the brave nor bold
Nor brightest of stories told
We won't give pause until the blood is flowin'

I need to watch things die from a good safe distance
Vicariously, I live while the whole world dies
You all feel the same so why can't we just admit it?

Blood like rain fallin' down
Drum on grave and ground

Part vampire, part warrior,
Carnivore and voyeur
Stare at the transmittal.
Sing to the death rattle.

La, la, la, la, la, la, la-lie (x4)

Credulous at best
Your desire to believe in
Angels in the hearts of men.
But pull your head on out (of) your hippie haze
And give a listen
Shouldn't have to say it all again

The universe is hostile
So impersonal
Devour to survive
So it is, so it's always been ...

We all feed on tragedy.
It's like blood to a vampire.

Vicariously, I live while the whole world dies
Much better you than I.

Peace

A very large percentage of the population is either narcissistic, masochistic or has a subconscious death wish. How do you stem a tide that gains an inherant pleasure from hurting others, getting hurt themselves or secretly hopeing that they would die? Only a small portion of people truelly love life and humanity and will act rationally to protcet the before mentioned.

I know that most people don't believe in psycho-babble, however there are emotions that run deep inside everyone one of us that are extremely difficult to not only identify, but also to cope with, understand and become better persons for putting in the work of self made evolution.

If people can't understand what's happening with their own biology they will never make heads or tails of the events that occur around them. I think that may be the largest problem in the world today. When people allow others to dictate the terms and conditions of their lives then they will never truelly understand what motivates and drives their lives.

They will become lost in an unraveling cycle that they have no understanding of or the skills to handle the situation themselves. They look to the very same people who helped create the mess in the first place, never realizing how fundamentaly wrong their approach to life is.

Did you not see where I put "excluding loss of life", twice?
I understand though, maybe I was naive to mention catastrophe without harm to people, because I am sure any catastrophe is going to do harm to others. For clarification , no I do not wish harm to others at all. I guess I just want to start over sometimes....
And the Tool song, I presented as another reason for this "madness" and fixation on tragedy, not that this is how I feel. Just want to clarify.

The world has gone insane. And people are talking about the insanity. While others (you) are pointing out that people are talking about the insanity. So you ALSO are TALKING ABOUT THE INSANITY. SO we are all on the same page that INSANITY is happening all around us.

Problem is, nothing is being DONE about the insanity. It still persists. There are little victories against it...not enough.

The Powers That Be want it this way. They created it to be this way. The take the good of humanity and twist it on us until we are all insane and living outside of our conscious nature.

It won't stop until the consciousness is returned, or ACTION is taken to bring down their house of cards. All of them, down to every last one.

The world is an idea, and is as insane as the insanity that views that world. Certainly, the world, in terms of this planet we inhabit, is not insane. Earth is sane, many people residing on earth are insane. Sanity is rooted in the Latin word sanitas, or health. Those who are sane, are of healthy mind. Those insane, have lost their health. We can punish the insane, or we can find ways to heal them, or better yet faciliate their journey back towards health.

It is no accident that with the rise of psychiatry, insanity rose as well. Psychiatry does not offer healing of the mind, but instead offers either therapy or drugs to handle the symptoms of insanity. Sort of like taking aspirin for a head ache. Surely one does not have a head ache because of some sort of aspirin deficiency. The aspirin is taken to reduce the pain, but the pain exists to make the person aware of a health problem. Insanity, often times, becomes an escape valve for pain not confronted, and not being confronted the pain continued to hurt to the point it becomes so overwhelming the mind must find some sort of release.

There is a fine line between confronting a problem and dissolving into confrontation. Confrontations never accomplish confronting the problems, and confronting a problem takes hard work, and a sound and sane mind. It seems to be a sort of Catch 22, but only for the insane. The sane will continue to confront until the problems are solved.

I wasn't mentioning you specifically, I apologize if it came off that way. I was hopeing that my reply may give you insight into the ways of (wo)mankind. You seem to have a firm grasp on your emotions and it wasn't my intent to question that.

Also, to the OP, insanity is trying the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. In my opinion what we are seeing is many people being forced to change their approach to life and not haveing the necessary skills to accomplish what they desire. They can see what's wrong, possibly see a solution but can't get from point A to point B. They are being challenged on a level possibly never felt by the affected.

Loss is extremely difficult to cope with and I believe people are suffering losses that they shuddered to imagine to before. It may seem like insanity, but the world is in turmoil as it has been since it's birth. The only difference now is the level of awareness and urgency that many people are beginning to feel.

I like quoting Gerald Celente on this topic..."when people lose everything and they have nothing to lose, they lose it." Kind of sums it up perfectly. Trapped in a cycle of loss. That cycle then mostly becomes a way of lashing out at others/blameing themselves, a combination of the two or leaving it up to God. Either way it plays into narcissism, masochism or a secret death wish where they hope God will someday take them and make it all better.

Very few are in a position to see the forest for the trees, help themselves, help others and make life a more fullfilling experience.

Today: the fart that caused an oil rig to gush 210,000 gallons of crude into the gulfs waters was unable to be condom'ed.
Anyone notice all the Volcanic activity still happening? she is still ashing up.

Tonight: at least I got my headlights on the deer.

Tomorrow: Tuning the synth to 432hz and will ride whichever wave it takes me on.

It's nice to have choices.

Thanks RLT, and pardon MY narcissism in thinking your comment was all towards me.

What you said was insightful and I agree the Biological perspective should be a fundamental consideration in change and health. What you speak of requires some self reflection, which seems harder to attain these days either by disinterest or distractive circumstances, but it is essential to contemplate and process our experiences in a more healthy fashion. I know that tuning into what drives us, and making the changes within is a good start.
