I discovered this site a few months ago while googling god knows what and after reading a number of the topics and posts I felt I just had to join. Finally I’d found a group of people nearly as strange as me lol. My main interests probably lie in the Paranormal and Metaphysical Forums although I do have an opinion on just about anything. I'm also beginning to get very fascinated by the whole alien, shadow government, conspiracy type talk which I'd never really paid much attention to. Actually, to be truthful, apart from downloading porn off 4chan and trolling Yahoo Answers this is the first forum I have ever taken part in with the intention of writing ‘serious’ answers.

I live in Australia and work as a geologist in an isolated mine in the Pilabara region (aka middle of nowhere). I also have a degree in anthropology/archaeology. Don’t worry I’m not super smart, I just wanted the government to pay for my hedonistic lifestyle for an extra couple of years while. (I do have to pay them back sometime however unless I fake my own death or move to Nepal) But all this does give me a bit of ammo when people want to play their scientist card. I’m also in my mid 20’s and have 2 kids as well.

I guess I'm a spiritualist and have been since I was a small kid. My ex-step dad was a wiccan high priest so I've seen and practised many amazing things. I also have a scholarly interest in medieval magical systems. I do consider myself to be ‘awakened’, but then again I’m sure everybody else here does as well so.....yeah....

One of my pet annoyances is everybody’s rush to become ‘enlightened’. Any obsession is unhealthy, be it in materialism, enlightenment, conspiracies, chocolate, or cats; and more often than not ends up being counterproductive to your overall life. In my view there’s no point rushing to become the next guru of whatever the f*^ck. Enlightenment should never be an effort or hard work. Everything you do takes you closer to the source whether you actively seek it or not. We’re all travelling down the same river and I’d much rather enjoy the journey with a fishing rod and a beer. My only peeve is the fact that in my next life I will forget how cool my last one was.

Essentially I classify my self as a realistic optimist. I don’t think the world will end next year. I don’t think things are getting any worse. I disagree with the general pessimism that seems to pervade a lot of people’s answers when they talk about the present or future state of the world. I believe humanity as an entity is moving towards something amazing. The world is more connected than ever, the rate of technological innovation is growing faster and faster and I personally consider myself very fortunate to live during this period where global consciousness has begun en masse to shift.

Amor et lux.

Ye I can believe it.

Actually due to the 'university lifestyle' I managed to graduate with little or no memory of what I actually studied. However if someone starts an iron ore geology conspiracy thread or wants to know how living in an isolated desert for 2/3s of the year affects their 3rd eye chakra, then I'll be there with all guns blazing.

Welcome to ATS!

Since you have that background with spiritualism I recommend you to read the book Zhuan Falun in my signature below. It explains things like the third eye structure, supernormal(inborn) powers and how to becom a good person. It was printed in more than 100 million copies during 7 years before Falun Dafa was banned in China by the Communists. I can tell you the book is unique and it explains mind and body cultivation at the highest level.

I agree that a part of the human world is moving towards something amazing and the world will never end, it will just become different - I believe.

Just my two cents, no truth offered whatsoever.

/Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good, Falun Dafa is good
