Thank you very much darkbake. Your assessment is crystal-clear to me. I, as well, appreciate the time some put into forging thought provoking threads. It pains me to see their efforts often rolled downhill, into the bin of jaded potential.

I love your avatar pic. Havent seen that before, but I picture a renegade ex-illum (noticed both a.s.e.s) using his knowledge to take them down from the shadows raking such a dark organization. What is it from?

Banality. Thats a new word for me; thanks for the brain candy, x. More of your type are crossing the scope of my vision, promoting a sense of acceptance to me. I was hesitant to say 'your type' at first; you clearly embody individuality.

Your words are encouraging, instilling the drive to post some things I had originally intended. Ill be sure to U2u u when i do, when i get the ropes learned a little better. From where does that hail, I wonder: "show him the ropes". Id make a witch hunt joke but that part of history was one of the worst, for Christian and pagan alike. I wouldnt even call it Christian. Or pagan, I guess, and that generalization was designed to save the time i spent typing this.

Thank you for the post. Is the apple in the yang of your avatar to represent knowledge? What is the other symbol?

Ha ha noted. I can tell by your frank, yet empathic response that we'll get along great. I had a couple of cold silences upon my jaded arrival to the sparkling shores of ATS, but see now the real people are worth waiting to meet.
Seriously, thank you.

P.S. to those who greeted me in my intro post, i didnt mean you by cold silences.
P.p.s. by real people, i meant people like you, mr.force

Yeah i WAS being a little sensitive, save the little part. Im new to forums, other than glp, which made my bat# crazy view of the world look like the perception of reason's adjuticator. I know that now, and thanks for the warranted slap. Im awake now.

Certainly. Concerning msm, I dont view them as terrible liars witholding some great secret. Its that if a field reporter WERE to stumble across something incredible, our govt dictates (Nice choice of word huh
)wether or how we receive the news. That, and they clearly have favourites. I expect to read about a potential cataclsym here, before Fox news is kind enough to indulge us.

Im not at the tinfoil hat level concerning msm, and still watch the news daily, but i dont expect anything to be as raw and uncut as what people themselves say. Obviously, i need to remain vigilant either way...

Thanks for your input, curious7. Love the triforce. You should slap an eye in the middle of it.

Not sure when, but yes. My TSSCI is orange. Like I mentioned to someone, I THINK its a way to prevent blatantly exposing who has sensitive information. Another new thing, unless you knew this, is they discharge you for somnambulism.

Aah ok. Dont know much on that angle. Although I have heard from multiple sources that colour codes are used in ATS clearances.

On a side note to do with the military: Will be interesting to see how many show up for the presidents day march ^.^

Exactly, you went from a K of 37 to a K of 22 in that barrage of posts. Quantity over quality, not fun for other people to read a full page of your individual replies to posts they already forgot about. You just did basically exactly the opposite of what i advised you.


Try make it count.

I really like your comments about how your profound statements are ignored.

First maybe they were only profound to you, which is fine we all have high opinions of ourselves.

If your posts really were profound you wouldn't care if they are ignored.
The fact that you posted them should be enough, if we miss them it's our fault.
You care more about recognition than anything which makes you just an attention seeker.
Profound statements should be transcendent and whether they are ever fully grasped or not doesn't matter because they don't become any less profound just because they are ignored.

Scattering it randomly make your post look like junk and hard to read.

Gotcha. Thanks, i was already down the line when it occured to me. Im not concerned with the score, but Im really embarrassed now to see all my posts like that.

I was afraid I would appear rude for not responding to everyone, and excacerbated things by filling the wall. Live and learn, right? Thanks for th3 heads up.
And my apologies to those who made it to this point, I get it now.

Okay bud so I read your thread and im just going to respond with the knowledge I have and my beliefs not saying its right just trying to help. And this is by phone so bare with me. Okay so as far as peoples profiles And how many points they have...that's not true because im brand new and if you say something with wisdom im response to something that you have knowledge on not just as a response to to argue or disagree with a comment then if its in the right area people wont judge. Yes mist people will say not true without a picture but that's because of all the stuff posted on line, if people believed every story (true or not) that would be all bad. Now as far as some people making rude comments ..no one is mean they just act based on their perspective. Instead of taking it offensively just akmowledge it and don't respond maybe try to see their side. All os good im the world some people voice their opinions harshly but its okay. If I disagree with someone I don't respond. Just let it be. Complaining about people and ranting makes you a part of it.

Instead grow past it allow people to voice there opinion see it from a higher perspectiv. No idea, religion, belief, spirituality, idea, political view, anything, is higher or lower better or worse than any other. They are all just other perspective, regardless of who thinks there's is "right ". Now people are welcome to voice their opinion in any way. Don't let it effect you. Don't respond with "im right " but also don't respond with judgements, or "that's wrong" every way is another way no point in responding in anger just find the post that fits you. There's nothing but love and good people in this world. All with different perspectives and opinions. From what I believe all I can say is love. Ill end it there for now cause this is difficult on my phone. Use your experiences with the knowledge world and the people to create yourself in the next grandest version of the greatest vision you ever held about about who you are. Love is all there is. Have a good night bud

From where does that hail, I wonder: "show him the ropes".





Like many other phrases, this expression has its origins in the world of sailing. Many of the sailing ships that plied the oceans of the world before the age of the steamship had complex systems of masts and sails that were controlled by ropes. Senior members of the crews of these ships were the ones who knew the ropes and understood how to use them to control the sails. The ambition of any sailor was to know the ropes as quickly as possible.

Is the apple in the yang of your avatar to represent knowledge? What is the other symbol?


It is the Sacred Chao of Discordianism, which is a very, very secret cult with handshakes and ninja moves.

Instead of the Yin and Yang of Taoism, the Chao represents the Hodge Podge of Discordianism. In it you see the Golden Apple of our patron goddess, Eris. In it also is the pentagon which symbolizes the Aneristic Principle which is the belief held by all Discordians that All Is Chaos, and if one sees it otherwise than they have just gone and talked themselves in to it, and will likely recover.

I had the same situation for TEN YEARS on alt.religion.angels. These newsgroups can be very disturbing. You just have to understand that is because certain people attracted to groups like this are themselves, disturbed. Really. Psychopaths who have no feelings of humanity. They cannot commiserate, sympathize or empathize with any living human. Inside they are empty husk filled with rage, and they choose to vent this by pretending to wit on NGs or sites like this. If you can, ignore them completely. If not, you could wake up with ten years of you life wasted when you could have been doing ANYTHING else but arguing with knotheads in this Lewsi Carrol world.

Ah, one of the bright ones I mentioned. Cute. You're the type to cherry pick what you'll bother trying to comprehend gwhen reading.

You missed my point, in a fashion suitable to redefine the ignorance we're here to deny.

Ack. Im feeding a troll. They warned me about your type. I never said that 'I' was making profound statements. In a hypoth- Im stopping there; probably wont understand this, either.

Ive stated twice that Im using a tablet, which randomly sets '3' for 'e', among other typos. Again, Ive c9vered this twice. Didnt feel like policing them all. This isn't an apology; Im not sorry.

L33t? Ahem, no, Im over 30 years old. Ive heard thats how the cool kids stand out, however. Luckily for me, I can rely 8n the actual substance of my message. Provided the reader compreh3nds it. If we end up on a sinking ship, allow me to read the life raft instructions for us. Good day.

Thats excellent advice; thank you. Already bit the hook, ha ha, as I just 'had' to explain something obvious to the troll a couple posts up. I knew better. Sadly, Im expecting venom in return. Im taking your advice though.

Its really depressing, what you said about the emptiness, and their using anon boards as a conduit for releasing all that negative juju. I feel bad for people like that, but the best thing I can do is lead by example, I suppose.

Thanks for stopping in an sharing insight.
