Be like water making its way through cracks. Do not be assertive, but adjust to the object, and you shall find a way round or through it. If nothing within you stays rigid, outward things will disclose themselves.
Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water my friend.

Thank you for providing them...
I don't know about the whole 'Illuminati' thing. I'm more interested in the geometry behind the scenes.
I'm planning on creating a design for a city that uses fractals and tiling, among other things... these are perfect for drawing inspiration from!!!
Ok, back to your conspiracies!
BTW, if you have no idea what I'm talking about:
Amazing website for inspiration!! People bitch and cry about the prospects of population control, well... I say, lets design our way out of this predicament!edit on 11-7-2012 by FractalChaos13242017 because: additional statement
I don't agree with just about any currently proposed means of helping address the real implications of our current population growth, infrastructures and consumption rates. Yet, this is a very serious matter, and not to be thought of as just an 'elitist agenda'. Once people understand this, we will be better for it and can allow for this issue to being put to rest.
That's all I really have to contribute for the ATS community, this horse has been beaten long after it was pronounced dead. It's impossible to have a real conversation about this on ATS, the distraction faction loves to interject with fear mongering rhetoric suggesting that 'Someone wants to kill them'... that gets so old!

I'm no shining star, but I aspire to be... as should you. This is the information age, and we need well informed people to break the mold of the old age as we emerge from the cusp between.(sounds like fantasy, but it's true)
All in all... tell the truth as you know it, for every problem... present a solution, or at least provide inspiration that is conducive towards optimism. It's that simple... well, that... and redirecting incentives. That will come naturally though.

Self imposed isolation is something I struggle with myself. Not all people are total crap. I know at times it is difficult to believe but it is true. It is easy to forget the world is amazing, anything is possible, and that there are good people out there. Sending good thoughts and well wishes your way.
"Nike Athena: Alternatively [she stands] allegorically for the notion that even winning is completely dependent on thought; for thought contributes to victory, but being thoughtless and impetuous while fighting leads to defeat.
A consistent observation that I've had over the last ten years online, has been that whenever someone tries to suggest any form of solution, for any of society's problems, this is inevitably the result. Someone who claims to be more "rational," or "practical," or "mature," will respond, often with a barrage of pure hate masquerading as reason. You can literally suggest anything deviating from the status quo; it will get the same response
I've seen it on this forum, as well. People don't want change. They really don't. They might say that they do, but try and suggest anything to them, and the one thing they will devote creativity to, is coming up with reasons why it won't work.

With your hatred of atheists and claims of atheists controlling science, you are no different than that person is.
You can make all the claims you want to, you can make all the argumentation and maybe be able to fool some of the other people, but you hate atheists just as much as they do, so I really see no difference.

Okay, I'm not sure how long you've been in the CT world. I'm about to be 30 in a few months, and have been in it pretty much all throughout my 20's. I struggle with the same as you. Trying to realize the ideal in reality.
This is ultimately human nature at play. The majority are "sensors" from an MBTI standpoint. Roughly 80%..only ~20% show up as intuitive. We each play our part. If you have too many idealistic dreamers, then the day to day tasks and a stable foundation of society can't be had. Too many realistic day to day people, and innovation is stifled.
I think the best you can do is pick and choose your battles wisely. Neither I, nor you can change the world alone. A man alone is incapable of genius. Genius is more about the ability of the collective to accept and realize the exceptional feats of the individual. So all we can do is gather what we believe is ideal, and apply as can be.
Basically, the problem is spiritual more than anything. You are losing "hope" or "faith" in the species. It means, at a deeper level, you are losing hope with your ability to cope with this stage of a great cycle. So be it. I have faith that you will come out of this in time, upon deep reflection, and choose to focus on what you can tackle within your abilities.
