It seems that I joined this site almost a year ago (2 months shy). This is my first post, appropriately enough it’s an introduction. There’s been a lot I’ve seen here at ATS that has gotten me to think more about the way the world truly is. There’s been a lot of trying to find myself in the last year and half.

Around August to December of 2011, I literally thought I was going insane. Reality started blurring for me, I begin to see myself, friends and family like we were being controlled like if one were to play a game called the “Sims”. It was especially weird when I felt it personally, It wasn’t scary, it was just different. I had knowledge that even though my physical form was being controlled from outside, that what I identify with as myself (perhaps my soul) was still the one controlling me. It was me, but through the new connection, I could feel that it was a better version of me; one containing more knowledge. Several other things that I cannot explain begin to happen to me around this time as well. I’ve since come to find out most of these can be explained by the concept of ascension, which I find an interesting prospect, but one I need more knowledge about to completely accept.

Anyway, the above mentioned incidents inspired me to revaluate my life and actually take an interest in my purpose and in the purpose of everyone here on this earth, living and sharing this world. I want to know all the why’s and how’s now. ATS has been a continuing source of inspiration and I figure it’s about time to join in the conversation.

AboveTopSecret is much like a theme park with a bunch of rides, so with that said...

Here's a few thoughts before getting onto any one of the 1000's of topical rides at Above Top Secret (ATS), the world's largest Civil & Unique Discussion Community.

* Please check out those links posted above before getting on one of the rides. This will save you a lot of future stress, frustration and possible action by one of your friendly neighborhood Mods!

* Please be sure that you act like an 'civil' adult and are at least this tall to get on any of the rides, (Johnny stretches his arm outward).

* Please remember that some members are very passionate and vocal depending on what ride your all on. You should be mentally fit, stable and have a strong stomach for theories, conjecture, research and evidence presented.

* Please be "open-minded" enough to understand that sometimes the ride isn't always what you might expect. Be aware you also might end up learning something new and 'out-of-the-box' before you get off the ride.

* Please note that at times the ride gets overly-heated and "it's strongly suggested" to get off the ride to regroup one's thoughts before continuing. This will also help guarantee that the ride will move forward without getting derailed or explode into a fiery trashbin.

* Please have fun! But be aware that if you act in an uncivil-like manner, use profanity, intentially spread a hoax and/or get verbally abusive, you will be removed off the ride by a Moderator. This is not only for your safety, but also for those both young and old on the ride with you.

So buckle up, keep your arms within the ride's comfort zone, have fun and "Deny Ignorance"...!
