The only "raw nerve" here is you man.
What upsets me is surely not the values you try to impose, it is your onset that makes me tick.
You might have your "crap-o-meter" but my "troll-o-meter" is burning a hole in my pocket!
You have an arrogant attitude, use a quoting and posting technique that works as to "flood" the thread with your posts, you are even so full of
yourself that you answer replies to other users than yourself (giving me the suspicion that you hold multiple accounts), you stick to the same board,
you keep the same attitude in thread after thread and your whole approach with your avatar and your signature just reeks of troll all the way!
And here I am feeding you. Why?
Maybe because I haven't been nearly as active on ATS as I used to be. Reason for that: increased trolling
. I don't care what others say, the
gotten worse here lately (come with increased number of members I reckon). This time, I wanted to return here to spread some
inspiration and what did I get? Exactly what I could have expected really... However, I feel obliged to take a stand for this thread because I just
had it with this ignorance and nonsense! Just because you put someone down doesn't make you bigger than them- they are just as equal. I tried to be
diplomatic and makes this atmosphere breathable again but to no avail.
fascinate me, however, is the lack of understanding along the concept of objectivity.
Take it like this:
You've just bought your favorite soda. I ask you why you love that particular mix. You say "because it tastes good". You let me have a sip of your
soda and I come to the conclusion that it tastes like crap.
Our different perception of the soda comes from our background, culture, needs and expectations. Those be our "lenses" through which we experience
So what did the soda really taste like? Probably nothing at all. It is all in our minds. There is no objective taste, there is no objective reality.
How does this reasoning come on-topic then? Here is why:
quantum physics has taught just what I described above but in some sort of "objective" way; everything is a product of our perception; a proven fact
that reveals what I recognize as the divinity of all minds- we are all creators of the universe, we are all part of "God".
This new science comes very timely also, it is a huge part of the convergence. When this stuff is becoming part of what the kids learn in school we
will foster new generations with a holistic view of the world. The end of the positivist era for good. Dualism and dichotomies- the "old way" of
thinking is obsolete. It is yesterdays news.
I think that is also why our interaction here seems to go nowhere. We attack this subject with totally different onset.
Returning to the previous part of the discussion, I can't help but wonder why you are so obsessed with slandering this topic. Where you afraid at
some point, deep down inside, that the world would
come to an end? Or maybe someone close to you thought that? Was loss of money involved? If
that is the case, it is totally understandable. What is not very constructive, on the other hand, is to overcompensate for that by making
"in-your-face" threads, over and over again.
My concept is to bring light and motivation into ATS as good as I can. You seem to have a totally different agenda. All that negativity and hostility
might (or probably will) come back to you. What station you tune in to is what signals you will receive. I give that as an advice- one fellow human
being to another. Let go of the anger, it will not serve you any good in the long run.
