Well hi there Sinny, thanks for the warm welcome.
Firstly I didn't say I didn't have an opinion on the human mind. I'm not sure if you perhaps misinterpreted something I said, but I can't see where
you might have got that from. I'm not sure one could have a view on 'the human mind' as such. It's a massively complex thing and covers so many
different facets. If you'd like to narrow the question down to something more specific I'd be happy to give my opinion on thh particular subject
(assuming I know anything about it. There's a lot I don't know about the brain and about people of course. Ten years isn't long enough to learn
EVERYTHING, I would suggest ten lifetimes would be insufficient. However, I'll try my best
In regards to the banking 'cartel', I'm not sure what you mean. The financial system is just that, a system. It is corrupt of course, no doubt, we're
seeing more and more evidence of that all the time (rate fixing being the most recent I think) and one could fairly call certain acts committed within
that system a conspiracy (thē Oxford English dictionary describes a conspiracy as " a secret plan by a group to do something unlawful or harmful) but
I'm not sure a corrupt system in itself can be called a conspiracy. Individuals may conspire to commit unlawful acts but I'm not sure a system can. I
hope that addresses your question and doesn't come off as arguing semantics, that's certainly not my intention.
The study you partook in sounds very interesting, I would like to see the results published and peer reviewed. Is there any chance you can point me in
the direction of where I can find the study?. I don't feel comfortable commenting on something I haven't seen or read for myself. I will have a look
As for my interest in ATS... Well, like I said, I want to believe, just because I don't hold extra-normal beliefs (I like the phrase) doesn't mean
that I close my mind and assert that I will NEVER hold those beliefs. I would love to find that this universe is full of gods and aliens and all kinds
of things. I just haven't seen any actual evidence yet. I hope to perhaps find some here, or at the very least, have an intelligent discussion with a
wide variety of people from all over thē world and aim new insight and perspective.
As for favourite topics, that's a toughie.... I'm quite interested in UFO phenomena as there seems to be some indication that something is happening.
What it is isn't clear but the sightings are widespread and persistent (many, MANY years, as I'm sure you know). I'm also interested in the way
governments manipulate data, media and individuals. I am interested in the discussions around govt. so called 'black' programmes... I suppose you
could say though that I'm interested in everything. The universe is a fascinating place and people even more so. I am always keen to learn something
new, I don't believe in good or bad experience really, only experience... It all comes down to the lessons we learn....
Thanks again to all who greeted me. I appreoate it. Thanks for your time
Edit: I looked for the study you mentioned but couldn't find anything on it. I will keep looking.
Also, in relation to bias, there is an interesting concept called 'confirmation bias' (sorry of you've heard this). It states that people tend to
favor information that confirms their beliefs or hypotheses. It's an area I'm particularly interested in as I see this in action on a daily basis and
it is fundamental to how we develop our view of the world. It's a massive cognitive mistake because it limits our ability to learn, addressing
cognitive bias is essential if one is to continue to grow and to develop.
