We should start a club; I grew up in SoCal with ADHD as well, but in my day it was called 'hyperkinesis'.
So, I read through all of your posts, I have to admit that I normally would not, but the membership's interest caught my attention.
interesting times that we live in, especially on the internet where the battle for hearts and minds is so intense. Heck, never mind
that, just the battle for stars, flags and 'likes', right?
In fact, it's so
interesting, the power of stories and narrative, that the subject has been the primary focus of DARPA for the last several
years. I would link you but I think I have worn out all my StoryNet-diatribe tokens around here.
Anyway, I can only imagine that this is a really busy time for their database analyst(s). Gotta strike while the metal is hot, I suppose.
As you can imagine, given our similar backgrounds, I also have had an almost obsessive interest in witchcraft and the occult for nigh on 31 years now.
I have pretty much read all of the stories, in other words, from multiple cultures, like yourself, I am sure.
I'm going to have to admit that since I have been experimenting with a computational/biological model of god and conciousness, that I really liked
your electrical system and radio analogies.
Otherwise, it seems that you have left out the part where the menu is not the meal and the map is not the territory; the Ego is not the soul. I get
the impression that what your story is offering is an updated post-2012 version of 'If it feels good do it", which was disastrous for an entire
generation in the 1970s.
My version of the story comes out a little more like this...
There is no God here
. We are alone. There are no 'beneficial entities', or what have you. There is no help for us here.
We are going to figure it out with what we come equipped with. We need no help from the outside. We are going to do it in these bodies.
Also, your stuff smacks of Gnosticism. I have a special hammer for Gnosticism. I have you wrong there, right?
Have a nice evening.
