, I wholeheartedly agree with your point and with the staff decision, and hope I'm not misrepresenting myself. You guys kick some major
buttocks, and run one of the best sites going.
Perhaps my musings are nothing more than a projection of my own confusion about the matter.
It is vital and necessary on a huge site like this to classify and organize information to make it useful. Without it, ATS would be a hopeless mess,
and probably not very popular at all. So I am definitely on board with the excellent work of the staff in organizing it!
But my "Confessions" thread seemed somehow out of place the whole time I was posting to it. Was it really a "paranormal study"?
As for my prophecies, yes they are predictions, but they are presented based on the hypothesis that they are actually memories
, not views of
the future. I don't know for sure, but I don't think anyone can actually see the future. So the "Yoshiel" stuff also seems out of place.
I'm not offering any of this as criticism, because I really am not sure if there is a better way to handle this than the way the ATS staff is
Maybe it's just me feeling a little angst about the whole thing.
I can tell you, in all sincerity, that two months ago I most definitely could never have predicted that I would even be all that interested in any of
these topics, let alone spouting the huge volumes of diary-like stuff I ended up posting.
Now I am experiencing things that are well beyond anything I have posted here, and don't know where I should post them, or if I should post them at
all. There just doesn't seem to be a suitable category for them.
That's not the fault of the ATS staff, but a consequence of the ambiguity of classifications for such things, or a symptom of my own shortcomings.
I'm just not sure where the fallout from my meditations fits here. I have a love/hate relationship with my prophecies/memories. Dreams & Predictions?
Paranormal Studies, maybe? It doesn't seem to fit to me. Where should my Cycles of Creation theory go?
The confusion is mine, because what I see within my memories covers so many different topics. Creation, reality, cognition, epistemology, the meaning
of life, physics, past lives, God, prophecies, the future, destiny, freewill.
All interesting topics, but what forum could possibly be classified such that all these things can be presented together? The problem I am faced with
is that in my mind, they are all inextricably linked. This puts my views on them in direct opposition to rigorous classification.
A tough nut to crack in my poor, muddled mind.
I suppose ruminating about it in this thread probably doesn't really help anything, but it is nice at least to talk about it, even if to do so is --
ironically enough -- off-topic in itself.
