What makes it even better is that you guys rock!
Community is dependent on communication. Maybe there was a time in the past when we could easily trust the devices streaming noise at us to tell us
things we would not otherwise know... but that time has long past.
Now the community must work together to make information meaningful to us (as opposed to expedient to the 'seller').
ATS is so much more than a place to discuss matters that are 'alternative' to the commercially-driven norm. Our community seems to have a knack for
being alert, well-informed, and sincerely driven to remain well aware of our world, its condition, her people, and it's entire lifespan, both from
and to the infinite.
The drive, for some of us, ranges from lighthearted curiosity all the way to the deepest hallowed human condition and our consciousness itself.
Because of the natural demand of any forming community to share common wisdom, and the unique venue our enterprising hosts have cultivated, a nexus of
opportunity has blossomed. Here, those who seek information about our world, are well aware that we must keep a constant eye on the present, it's
too important not to take an active approach to steward current events into our discussion, and we cannot suffer the repugnant practices of
entertainment business models or vainglorious political theater to 'mold' the news for us. We have already seen what they have done, can do, and
are still doing.
If there's one thing that our community can guarantee to any casual observer, it is the unstoppable force of many voices in earnest dialog. We need
not agree ... as we direct ourselves to a code of respect; ... we need not posture ... since we are not sellers of ideas, merchants of dreams, or
traffickers in ideologies. We are free to offer the thrill of the chase... the actual search for what is and what isn't relevant to our our own
minds, spread across our global membership... That pond is deep. In a world which often challenges us to remain shallow.... 'deep' is very
Did I mention how you guys rock?
