Hello everyone, my name is anon29.
The first part of this post is going to be a short introduction, followed by some pictures of an old book I have come across that I would like some
help identifying. If introduction posts bore you, skip to the second half.
I have decided to create an account here at ATS after lurking these forums for some years. It has taken me quite some time to justify this move, as
ATS is a very unique place with an intimidating depth. I finally feel that I may have some ideas and opinions that are worth adding to the various
discussions that take place here. You may or may not feel the same after my thoughts start manifesting into posts here, but I’ve decided I need an
outlet for these abstractions that roll around in my head, as I’ve abandoned social networking sites, and my more intellectual friends are not
always readily available to converse with.
As this is an introduction post, I thought it would be appropriate to cover some of the most frequented topics, and give a short, personal-opinion
response to each of them. Obviously I will not be able to cover all of them here (nor would I want to), but there are a few that I feel especially
Before I cover the few topics I have thought about I would like to offer a small disclaimer. I don’t believe that any of my thoughts on these
matters are original or exclusive to myself, so please do not respond pretentiously. I am simply trying to convey insight into my worldview; and hope
that I can do so without arrogance.
-- I will begin with the most inconsequential, but always sensationalized topic of politics. I believe that there are certain entities which control
American, and transitively, world politics. I believe these entities are not concerned with voting or the average American’s sentiment towards
politics, and thus make decisions according to their own agendas. This may be nefarious, it may not be. A new world order could be a good thing, and
it could very well be a bad thing. But I have not seen enough evidence from either side of the argument tosolidified my opinion. All in all, I think
there are much more important things going on in the multiverse, so I will be glad when the imminent presidential elections are over.
-- Aliens. They’re out there. I think we’ve (and by we I mostly mean the government, or the entities that control the government) had brief
contact. And I think that this contact is the origin of much of our modern technology. However, I do not understand why they would refuse to make
themselves known to the general populace. I believe that the secret relationship between certain humans and alien beings is one of the main
stagnations holding the human race from advancement and inevitable evolution. Hopefully disclosure will come soon. I am infinitely curious about the
possibility of other life forms.
-- ATS threads seem to constantly pop up in the recent section about existence, life, and what happens when we die. I often think about these things,
and very much enjoying reading the opinions of posters here, and of more prominent minds like Terrence McKenna. Whether the discussion is about
reincarnation, simulation theory, fundamental religious views, or new aged abstractions I take all things in and try to discover the intent behind
them. I have had a few (naturally induced) psychedelic experiences that I believe have revealed slivers of the truth of the nature of reality, and am
thirsty to uncover our purpose on this planet in this dimension, and ultimately cure our collective amnesia. Lofty goals, I know. But there is
something to be said for noble and altruistic curiosity.
Well, that was a brief overview of my thoughts on the physical, inter-galactic, and metaphysical topics that are most frequently discussed here. I
hope this introduction is well received and that I am able to actively participate in this community after only lurking for far too long.
This is going to be short and heavily dependant upon pictures, because I have no idea what exactly I have here. If you have any idea as to what you
think it might be please leave a reply. And better yet, if you know somewhere you think I could take it (or ship it) to learn more about it from a
knowledgeable expert, please speak up.
Hopefully it’s a necrocomicon
...but I sort of doubt it with the pictures of jesus(?) and all.
Those are the pictures I took. Found it in my grandmother's basement. Let me know if you think it's something cool. or just an old book.
