Greetings ATS, I have finally decided to speak. I hail from Australia, not quite outback but isolated enough. And before anyone takes offence at my
name, yes I do have bipolar disorder, and I have to swallow the blue pill every day or I will disappear from this world back into the matrix. I guess
one of the primary reasons I enjoy this site is the number of "like minded" individuals who frequent these pages, with well researched and
referenced arguements. Although some users seem to be entangled in the mainstream perceptions, there are so many original and thought provoking
arguements - something I miss from my days debating literary themes at university. Anyway, just glad to be on the team.
I've been more into books in the past - Velikovski, Lyall Watson, Hancock, Cremo and Thompson to name a few...I have also studied
philosophy/history/literature...but now I find the internet essential, the lag between events and their appearing in print is just too great. My pet
interest is the schism between religion and science that has dominated scientific views in the West since the 1800's. That is the arguement between
uniformitarians and catastrophists, between evolution ex nilho and the divine spark-( and no, I am not religious, I just dont have a problem with
"the unknown" ) I believe that at least in the West, politics/religion/science have this bombastic need to ignore truth in order to obey partisan
Overall I am just interested in the truth, plain and simple. Being bipolar is in no way a hinderance to my quest, infact being "mentally ill" has
its upside too. The downside is having to deal with ignorance and prejudice on a regular basis, the upside being I am free to experience life without
the philosophical inhibitions most seem to be burdened with.
Thanks for reading, I have to go back to the mothership now. Live long and prosper
