This place intrigues me. I have nothing to hide but teeth marks on certain areas of my body. I will no longer speak about these. Promise.
I enjoy the exploration of ideas. So much that in college I failed to pass philosophy twice for failure to memorize the names times and places, so much would I loose myself in considering of the thoughts I found in the texts.
As a teenager, against the advice of a mentor, I headed of into a journey of discovery in a deeply existentialist manner. I may never emerge. But for that matter will any of us?
In the mid 60's I experienced numerous psychic events and witnessed several UFOs.
In the late 60's I came upon the teachings of Sun Myung Moon. Four years later I found my way out and have managed to shake off enough of that programing to function effectively. One thing though that has remained with me is the meme that we are living through eschatological times. This has flavored most of my thinking for the last thirty five years .
In the early ninties I collaborated with a radical Marxist group for several years but left that persuasion after enough study to understand that the perspectives I found there were not enough to bring about the social changes they struggled to correct.
In the mid 90's I spent three years in an online chat room catering to Wanderers and Walkins.
Throughout it all I have read science fiction. Steering away from the robot, laser firing,bang bang shoot-em-up I have concentrated on finding those authors who offer at least nuggets of serious speculation. Three years ago I traded away my collection of 4000 paperbacks.
My favorite quote?
"What was that about hats?"
I am looking forward to interacting with you all at ATS. At least until some other fancy tickles my synapsis.

Most excellent introduction. Welcome to tha' big show.

Sounds like you are not only a living, breathing sociological experiment, but from that viewpoint will have much to bring to the table.

Flagging this because I know the other members will dig your intro too.

I realize your introduction thread is likely dated by this point in time. Yet, after reading it I felt the need to share one of my favorite quotes.

"Genius is self bestowed, mediocrity is self inflicted."
-Walter Russell

Thank you for welcoming me to the ATS forum.

I was really surprised that nobody was wondering where the sympathy was!

"Without adversity, there would be no growth, and without growth, there would be no lesson to be learned."

-Michelle D. Rosado

Sympathy may be defined as: an affinity, association, or relationship between persons or things wherein whatever affects one similarly affects the other

I'll give the accuser the same I would give the defendant. Otherwise I'm partial before considering the whole.

It's an awesome song. I will also stop here because I don't want to hijack TerryMcGuire's introduction thread. Even though it's about 5 years old and Terry probably had forgotten about it years back.

Oh no, please keep on. How a five year old intro has become a nesting place for new conversation is different. I even got a new welcome to ATS out of it.
