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.
