finally i can make a thread!!
so i was just thinking about how since ive found this website, my thoughts on life and consciousness(thats its subjective and we share this
oneness.....all the stuff ive seen posted and talked about here as well) have been more stable, yes ive had these thoughts before and got to them
through my own path of study(brain and philosophy) but the fact that ive met other people with the same thoughts has solidified it in my mind, so its
not just a fleeting theory, or its not something that makes me feel like im weird or crazy anymore.....the internet and forums like this are
significant in creating/ maintaining these conscious states in us......think about it......your consciousness is influenced by what is directly around
you, before we had the internet, phones, anything to communicate long distances, we were stuck to our town and the people around us, its not a secret
that well traveled people who went outside the normal scope most humans see, are the ones who made discoveries and realizations......maybe we feel a
unification now because we simply have these technologies that make physical space irrelevant, we can talk to each other and influence each other from
far away places, we can meet here and stabilize our thoughts, i for one must admit, writing and reading posts here has helped me say what ive always
wanted to say, like its coming out of me piece by piece, its like physically having you guys around me...
once you meet similar minded people through the internet, it does not matter what people think around you, so where before meeting you may feel very
alone on a path that is difficult and not find much help from around you, in fact whats around you will detract from your path, but once you DO
communicate with other people and they have similar thoughts or opinions, your mind is like a rocket that blasts off and quickly goes down that road
you want to explore.....every moment is truly unique and life is never the present moment, because that moment has passed and its on to the next
one.....we have to consider how technology and social structure is changing us and our consciousness, we have to be diligent in seeking truth and
debunking bull#, sure we could feel unified now and all these feelings could be surging through us and we can talk about the oneness and all that, but
it could be an expression of the times, how can we go back and say this is how its always been or how its going to be......? its like achieving a
state because of what is currently around you and then extrapolating it to the future or going back....can we really do this?
im not sure exactly where im going with this, im just trying to think about how we get to our positions and our thoughts....i have no clear position
on anything, i want to explore all angles.....
