And you will see a few of these beings crop up on here shortly, i admire your courage in making this thread, as i have long felt the need for it.
Those who are out to serve themselves, are controlled to seep your energy, to draw negativity out from you. they do exist, and they abound, yet they serve us as well, as a means to overcome ones own negativity.

My own pet theory is that a certain "shamanic mentality" is actually a genetic part of humanity... To me, the fact that this is so common is strong evidence that a shamanic strain of mysticism runs through a certain percentage of our population even today, although society no longer recognizes it or gives it the value it once had.

Sorry, mate, you're just another ape like the rest of us, so don't go giving yourself airs. Not having enough common sense to see that you're just like everyone else is not a qualification for thinking yourself special.

Just useless labels, there have aalways been those types about, maybe because of the net people are picking up on it more now.

There's nothing wrong in being an Ape if that's what we are.
But I have to disagree that you and me are exactly like eveyone else or each other for that matter.
You are special at what ever it is that makes you special but judging by your answer it certainly isn't being supportive or indeed positive.
What I was wondering was actually why are some of us aware of certain things whilst others are not.
Could there be a genetic memory of some sort that is active in some of us.
Add something that makes me believe that you and I are the same in this and we'll have a constructive conversation about it.

Correct me if Im wrong

I disagree with this. I believe we are all the same kind of human not Ape. If we were Apes in the true sense then we would walk on all four, hang in trees and live in flocks somewhere on a mountainside or in the jungle somewhere. We would not have the type of speach we posses and certainly not have this conversation that we're havning. But other than that I agree that we are of the same genetic material and therefor belong to the same 'lable' of animal.
Why shouldn't it be? Because I choose not to believe in pseudoscience and self-serving delusion? When something is good, true and worthwhile I am extremely 'supportive and positive', especially if it's a project begun by someone I know and care for. Helping the world along isn't easy, and people who go about spreading error and falsehood don't help.
No simply because of the short snappy way you expressed your opinion. You could have chosen so many ways to say the same thing but you didn't. I agree that there is alot of falsehood but to say that the opinion I expressed was selfserving is plain wrong. Did you read the whole thread I was talknig about the oposit of that. I was talking about including everyone to join together and to serve eachother. Why does support only have to extend to people you know and care for why not everyone? Firend or foe. Especially when it is free to give like in these forums?
Some people are naturally intelligent and perceptive. It is because they have been born that way, or because they have received some life experience or training that makes them that way, or both.
No. At least not the kind you mean when you say 'genetic memory'. Genetic memory is, at best, a metaphor for your genes' expressive potential inside a human body - their ability to code for proteins and whatnot
Yes and it is this natural inteligence that was at least in my mind under discussion. I don't see how we are saying different things here. I believe there are some affinities one are born with and others that you learn. Those that you are born with could they be due to a 'genetic memory' that everyone carries but only some access? Why not? Everything else in life and genetics is like that. So no I was not refering to a metaphorical 'genetic memory' but an actual genetic memory. And what makes you think I do not know about genetics at least enough to have this conversation?
I don't think there is a basis for any kind of constructive conversation here. My post was an attempt to make some foolish or miserable teenager think twice before embracing the stupid, Fascistic proposition that all their troubles are due to the fact that they are somehow different - not in degree but in kind - from the rest of the human race. That is a very dangerous idea indeed.
There is always room for constructive conversation like the one we (IMO) are having right now. One of my points is that in order to excercise free will we must see the whole story. (IMO) So in order for you to help someone you must let them make their own mind up by providing your proof for them to scrutinise. I love that we are disagreeing on this because that breeds ground for growth and exchange of ideas. Some of which are readily acepted and some which are at their infancy.
Love and light. Thank you for explaining yourself further so that your ideas and your voice could be heard. Now it is up to each and everyone who reads this to agree disagree or be unmoved by it all.

Ha ha I was wondering when one of YOU (haha) 'possitive' types where gonna join the conversation.
You are going on about how people shouldn't be labeled.
Than you instantly label someone in the next post.
You seem to be one of those attempted gift of the gab speaking people, who talk so much rubbish you end up going around in circles and contradicting yourself.
Please for the dealers sake, do not take up used car sales.
Perhaps consider philosophy, or fiction writing.
