Greetings fellow thinkers, I've only been a member of two or three forums in my life, and I found them to be filled with heirarchies that I did not understand, and served mostly only to confuse me. In fact, I am not even sure that I am doing this right, so if I offend with my lack of forum knowledge please forgive me, I am still in the learning process.

I never considered becoming a part of a forum, as I felt I had enough distractions from what I have been calling "my work" for some time now, but after being without sleep for a few days now, I thought that perhaps I could use a medium such as this to put some of my little thoughts and insights I've come up with on my own out into the world for others to compare with theirs, to make sure that I'm not crazy, as the television would have me believe. I am confident that other people transcend the constant process of youtube video searching and history channel watching, and do a little real "self-discovery." Don't ask me to elaborate, because I will admit I don't know what the new paradigm of research entails, and that is another reason I am here.

Looking back on what I've written so far I am thinking to myself, "isn't this why everyone is here?" I would think so, and on that note I guess it would be more beneficial for me to be a little less vague in my description of myself and my thought process. I am very excited to meet other people like myself, I hope you are here.

I'm 18 and I live about twenty minutes away from Detroit, MI. I just graduated high school a couple of months ago on what many people refer to as the "five year plan." I devoted most of my time in high school to resisting oppressive thought patterns I noticed were becoming increasingly present there, and just avoiding the place at all costs, finding more interest in my own personal education. If this gives you the pre-conceived notion that I am probably just a spoiled suburban kid who has never worked a day in his life and likes to complain a lot, you would only be half right. I won't bother proving myself, as like the video said, we ought to be focused on the issues. I believe that I am interested in every conspiracy topic hosted on this forum, except maybe cryptozoology (I've never heard of it, but if it's got to do with people who dress up like animals, not my thing, although if you like it, by all means have a blast).

I've been very heavily involved in trying to uncloak the truth since I was thrust into a high school with a giant population and found myself to be what seemed like one very dim light of free thought among a great heard of sheep. I still remember fondly the first lie I ever exposed, one that many people still find taboo (even among this board I am sure, and because of this, I'll never mention it) due to a lifetime of indoctrination. I don't mean to sound so dramatic, or give you the impression that I am anti-social, quite the opposite. I enjoyed the people around me, but saw them as copies of one another, and as characitures of TV personalities. But I digress, please respond to my post, as I have a few thread ideas very fresh in my mind and would like to get to work immediately.

Welcome to ATS!

I am in the same boat as you; although my story is a little different:
17 years old, dropped out of high school a few weeks ago to focus on finding out the Truth about myself and the World.

One tip for you on ATS:
Be very wary of what you post; you will get ridiculed, criticized, and in some cases banned for "outrageous" behavior, beliefs, and posts.

Once again, Welcome to ATS and be Wary.

The bold capitalized words warn me to make every post count, so I will thank you all individually and then use my better judgement to take a vow of silence until the morning.

To my fellow Michigander Darrman I send my regards, my goal is to move somewhere below the southern hemisphere sometime this year, even if I'll show up in south america broke and dirty as my ancestors did to this country only sixty years ago after the second world war displaced them from southern germany. I'm out of Northville myself, I look forward to the collaboration of conciousness.

To my friend in Washington, I admire your decision to withdraw from the control system's clutches. It's a very very brave decision, as I'm sure the majority of everyone around is pointing you in the other direction, telling you that this is all there is and you must consume and be taxed and have toys to find happiness. You are too wise to subscribe to such a rediculous idea of success, as I was. I stood up in the balcony and shouted at the presenter in the school auditorium when they had an assembly in my school regarding this idea of "success." How simple are the lives of the little brainwashed public. I pray for them daily.

And to the moderator, I will be sure to go over all the links and dot the t's and cross the i's so to speak. Thank you for doing what you do, because without you, the online experience would not be quite the same.

Yes, I am new here too and do not know what I am doing. I have always been looking for the truth behind the scenery. I started wastching History Channel's Ancient Aliens and loved it. Who could refute some of the evidence? It's just being kept from us. I have been 'a little different than the other kids ' my whole life. I am VERY interested about 2012 phenomena/prophecy/evidence. Well, forgive me if I am doing this wroung. -Splangey
