I ask this in the general conspiracy board because I know that's what I originally wanted when I first was unaware and I first was researching
conspiracies. It's taken me a long time to admit this but after watching Full Metal Alchemist again it got me thinking. Why does human kind want to
participate in experiments?
Can people honestly think they just want pure knowledge? Or would they do anything to try to gain power over others and to try to seek control
through the most ruthless means imaginable? The enemies in the series suggested that humans were not so different from them. They had their own
ambitions. So did the humans. They later on in the series said that they were trying to stop humans from using those devices among themselves from
unleashing unspeakable evil using the philosopher stone for themselves.
Sorry if I spoiled the original series but it isn't like it mattered since the Brotherhood series is more true to the original manga and the original
FMA diverged from it so it's not completely cannon (though it is important). But back to the point... aren't most of you here just seeking for
knowledge for the sake of acquiring more power for your political ends or goals?
I know that's what I was doing. That's all I cared about at first. I only did it for myself. I didn't care about the truth until I realized that
this world is being ran full of bastards who care nothing more but their own views and don't realize what problems would result if they would enforce
their views on everyone else and the consequences of their action (which would lead to complete domination of humanity by a series of appointed elite
officials over the masses who have some mantle of "legitimacy" to carry out their actions).
I wanted power to control others. Why was I interested in magic for so long and in spells and in stuff like that? Trying to see if things were real
or not? No real reason... other for the fact that I wanted people to like me. I wanted people to love me so at the time I was researching in NLP and
voodoo stuff so that I could get people to. Fortunately, I realized the errors of my ways, and I realized that you can't really manipulate the ways
of the universe in any ways that you want it to, unless you really need something to change. But, for something like love, or something like
friendship, that is something in itself which only you have power over and no one can control that for you.
I am now interested in magic more from an academic standpoint and knowing how different it is from prayer. It's the same thing with psychic
abilities. I used to only be interested in psychic abilities because I wanted to control people's minds. I used to be a huge control freak and I
wanted to control how people thought and what people's actions were. I wanted to be able to dive into people's minds or visit places where I
couldn't be so I was researching remote viewing.
I initially was interested in propaganda only so that I could use it for myself. I had no intention of sharing my knowledge. It wasn't only till I
realized that everyone else was thinking these same things and they had some of the same knowledge that I did about these subjects and about power and
control. The only problem was that everyone else was seeking power and they only wanted to just "get ahead" in life while cutting out the little
man that got the butt end of the problems. The big boys who call themselves Capitalists are just fakers who will go to the state and ask them to buy
the population off while they maintain their power. We were lucky to get a victory against the establishment with SOPA and PIPA. But pretty soon
they'll go back to their old control freak ways and they'll propose something just as dangerous. You can count on that.
Why was I interested in alien tech before? I was only interested in alien tech because I wanted people to be able to be mobilized against something
greater than ourselves. I also wanted to be able to know about the mind control experiments to see just how easy it was to manipulate people and
change them so they act something that they wouldn't be doing. My goal in life was initially to become a journalist in life who appeared to be
interested in politics and liberty so I could persuade people to come to my interests. I was really only interested in control back then... back then
I was still a control freak. I knew about media biases. I just simply didn't care. I just said they existed but I didn't realize why they
I really believe that things do need to change and that power can be used for good and for evil. I still seek power. So do many people. But power
is not the only thing that I care about anymore. I care deeply about other people and I am really concerned about the way things are going. Life's
like one gigantic party for the elites and we're not invited.
I guess what I'm saying... is think about your motivations for acquiring this knowledge. Are you only interested in it for yourself? If so... then
perhaps you're one of them. Power influences people. It is not wrong to seek power in itself. But just be cautious about how you use it and why.
I used to be a control freak and now I'm a radical anti-statist libertarian and I see the errors in my previous ways of wanting a completely rule
bound society where my rules would bound other people and regulate their behavior and their economic actions.
Not saying you all should become libertarians... but that you should just be careful what you wish for. You might just get it.
