Hmmm...believe me you cannot.


Why? Are you immortal?

My dark side would be that I pretty much hate every person I meet after listening to them for 30 seconds. There are exceptions that make a fool of me, though they are few and far between, nothing like being happy about being wrong.

My darkside is my rage. It comes out very rarely and only for good reason, When I see someone being pushed around or hurt by someone else I lose control. You might say "Leaf, thats a good thing" But it isnt for instance I had a classmate who abused his puppy. I saw him kick the tiny puppy really hard like 6 times so I hit him with a bit of metal pipe in the end I broke his molar and made him blind in his left eye. Then I stole the dog I got a fine but the cops were easy on me because he was a known druggie scumbag. That was 13 years ago, and I still have the dog

I used to work as a fitter-machinist metalworker for a military aircraft company and realized that I was building components of nuclear cruise missiles, amongst other reprehensible weapons tech.

I didn't quit right away when I should have. Everyone I spoke to denied that the components were for missiles, but none were particularly qualified or particularly savvy.

In a jungle of the senses
Where Tinkerbell meets Jack the ripper
Life has no meaning, not where we come from
But we know pleasure is not that simple
Very little fruit is forbidden
Sometimes we wallow, sometimes we're strong
But you know evil is an exact science
Being carefully correctly wrong

Chorus
Priests and cannibals, prehistoric animals
Everybody happy as the dead come home
Big Black Nemesis, parthenogenesis
No one move a muscle as the dead come home

We feel like Greeks, we feel like Romans
Centaurs and monkeys just cluster round us
We drink elixirs that we refine
From the juices of the dying
We are not monsters, we're moral people
And so we have the strength to do this
This is the splendour of our achievement
Call in the airstrike with a poison gas.

Chorus

How bad it gets, you can't imagine
The burning wax, the breath of reptiles
God is not mocked, he knows our business
Karma could take us at any moment
Cover him up.....I think we're finished
You know it's never been so exotic
But I don't know, my dreams are visions
We could still end up with the great big fishes

Chorus

(misquoted from Nemesis by Shriekback).

My dark side is that I can turn off my emotions completely. And I mean COMPLETELY, in a "do what needs to be done" kind of way.
When I turn them back on, I do not feel anything about any actions I performed while emotionless. I creep myself out sometimes.

Sure, everyone has a dark side, some more than others.
I have one myself, I am afraid I wont tell you what it is however. Even though I am pretty sure, telling people here on ATS about it, wont ruin my personal life. It is still something that deeply shames me. Lets just say my dark side, is something everyone here would kill me for, with pleasure.

For the sake of this thread, lets call it my darkness.
All my life I have had urges to give into my darkness, but I never have. I have fought this darkness and the thoughts I have of it almost everyday, ever since I was 10-12 years old.
This have given me an immense amount of selfrestraint and taught me to think my actions through, with a set of logical ground rules.

But then again, I have lost most of my ability to act on emotion and I can not allow myself to just act on a whim.
I need to constantly be mindful of what I do, if its okay, if its legal, just so that I force myself and my mind to think like that in everything I do. This is simply for the sake of being in control.
This has helped me fool myself, into thinking that this darkness is not a part of me, but more something that has been forced onto me and something that I need to fight. Which is the only way I can live with it. I need it to not define me. Because if I let it define me, it would make me an evil person. Which I do not want to be.

I also have an emergency "kit" where I live. It consists of a tank of helium, a mask and some tubing. I keep this around so that I always have the possibility of making an "exit bag" I believe some call it. Strap on the mask, attach it to the helium tank, breath untill you fall asleep, die in your sleep. So yes, I always have the ability to take my own life.
Why I have this? In case I ever lose control. Should I ever feel that I am starting to lose control of this darkness, I will take my own life. Yes, I am very ashamed, I am very sorry and I live my life like that and I will do so for as long as possible.


So now that I have come across here as a total psycho, or a big fat dramatic liar, you are of course free to ask questions, but dont ask me what the "darkness" is, cause I would rather not tell anyone.

currently my dark side is assuming that a 10 year old troll is dribbling at the keyboard. "Troll!!" troll!" my darkside keeps yelling at me, yet i read 4 pages expecting said troll to poly-morph into something intelligent. "why are you ignoring me?" my darkside says. "go to a sensible thread where people don't waste time" I sigh.... "Ok dark side, you win this battle."

You post some really good threads Diamond. Usually philosophical and thought-experiment types, & I always enjoy reading through them.

As for my dark side...I can't quite pinpoint. It usually only reveals itself when I'm extremely angry with someone; and that doesn't happen very often. ;]

I consider my Dark Side a necessity....and so do many others. My Dark side is also my Side of Light as one cannot have one without the other.

I have listen to conversations of people talking of this topic and the one standard statement from all is...I am s fairly peaceful person but if someone messes with me...watch out! Most of these statements maybe real to the person saying them but without propper training....undirected unleashed violence is very ineffectual.

When I am in an unfamiliar place with unfamiliar people...I watch, listen and learn and try to commit to memory every little detail as this can be useful if something were to happen...and it usually does.

I also have a problem with people who say they are students of the Martial Arts yet even if they do train...they behave contrary to these arts teaching such as displaying agressive tendencies or use others knowledge of their abilities to sway an action in their favor.

My sometimes job is in the problem solving aspect of actions. I try to solve issues in the least of violent ways as this is good for everyone. Sometimes...things don't go to plan and conflict becomes inevitable. When this happens....the most dangerous one of a group is the one who is quietly thinking and reacting to others. Don't get me wrong...channeled agression works....but it is the quiet guy that worries me the most. He knows something....it is my job to figuer out what that is. Split Infinity

Our Dark Passengers - This video explains them beautifully. Taken from a scene from the show Dexter on Showtime.

My darkside is wanting to confront one of our corrupt elected officials and videotape his punishment which would be a not too severe, but quite painful caning, like a whippin' with moral narratives so the viewers on a pirated signal nationwide wide cablevision platform, would have the full benefit of all the pertinent lessons being shown...

Of course there are so many of them that need it, it would become a huge undertaking... even the women like barbara boxer and that crazy lady, former speaker pelosi would also be in line for a public paddling...

They would be left with the warning not to re offend, or face even more @ss whippin's, each one televised of course... it would be a new, non sanctioned reality show that no one had the power to stop....except for the offenders, by simply respecting true American values and have respect for the American people, for once in their lives..

Can you imagine what people would be saying after even the first one?



I bet it would be a most effective program...

diamondsmith did mention twice his dark side, you just missed it :
first in the op


Maybe where we are now,here, is for some of us the Dark Side of our lives.

then


This place is my dark side!~!


further i conclude that diamond doesn’t know what sleep is



What is sleep?


and he replied



to post by hadriana ‘I don't fear my light side at all’
with
‘That is the one you should fear most!’


diamondsmith’s last post was – what – 8 hrs ago or so. and we know diamond is not sleeping.
I bet diamondsmith must have a secret life on the light side, probably with the spouse, then diamond comes back here to the dark side where diamondsmith fears the light.

but I dare say it’s more likely the spouse diamondsmith fears, when the spouse finds out that diamondsmith spends the rest of the day/night here on ats !

diamond, what’s so dark about ats ?

my terrifying dark side is
that i prefer to be on the dark side

when i’m on the dark side
only light can follow
and that is a wonderful feeling

but when i’m on the light side
inevitably the dark follows

Thank you Raelsatu,they are not that,simple human feelings are not experiments,but sometimes we forget to think to simple things,and that is very sad for all of us.
