" wrote:A pleasant surprise, as normally you are labelled by those without critical thinking as a conspiracy theorist.... the term that is used as a tool to stiffle debate, and deter those from research.
You will always find the extremes of opinions here and sometimes the balance. But that is all relative and subjective to each person and cannot be totally weighed or measured accurately as the subject is VAST- as you already know
I like you already, you seem calm and not too keen on exposing everything you believe because of how hostile people are of their opinions.
In particular those who think they got it all figured out. It's all just crazy paranoid delusional schizofrenic conspiracy theory with little to no relevance of the world we live in! That's what most will tell you anyways.
The conspiracy is closely linked with the spiritual from my experience. And it is hidden behind layer upon layers of "truth." It's really not so bad when you uncover some of the layers. It's people's perception of what is happening and the sheer monstrosity of white lies both on the surface and behind it that scares the crap out of people. Most of this whole thing is a product of our own minds, our own power given away to external illusions- and our simultaneous ignorance of that which is right in front of us.
Then there are conspiracy theorists (of whom I might be clumped with) who might think we got it all figured out because of some clever intuition to allow us to see beyond the status quo. To me, it's obvious when someone is in denial when they abdicate all thoughts to extremes- disagreeing with a paranoid conspiracy nut who might of made shit up, or written a book to make money- and thus in their minds, all "conspiracy theory" is the same set of nonsense. Never investing the time or even the simple thought that there might be a truth to a hidden reality behind our own- not anywhere near as hogwash as that which is mainstream or popular.
It's like the 2012 and new age market. Rational minded people completely stay away from such topics because of the internet hoopla and BS that's focused around it. Niburu ? Reptilian aliens? I mean come on where does the insanity end? Yet this comes from the judgment of other people's lackluster belief systems and not from actual research or inquiry. There are efforts to confuse the reality with fantasy. And in some ways, what is considered fantasy can be a form of reality.
I have learned, in my search for occult truths- that the symbolic is a mirror of the literal. And thus as the Mystery Sciences hide truths behind symbols so does the universe hide it's nature from you. All across the multi-verse, one will find entities who prefer to hide the truths from others- and use the truth for personal gain. And others, who would want you to know it, because "the truth shall set you free."
What I'm saying is this place is awesome because it's got all shares of personalities. If there weren't the ultra skeptics and the ultra paranoid crazies (I'm using labels, of which I don't adhere to, but others do), there would be no balance in the sheer craziness of these topics haha.
" wrote:Genuine Indigo people are natural bullshit detectors so having a section where they can do a sniff test is just perfect.
For instance while doing some research on alien encounters I came across and self proclaimed Hybrid named Eddy Page. He claims that he was the child of an alien father and human mother. My BS detector went off the charts. Anyone else had the same reaction?
Unusual, because most of the time when I read or see and account of an encounter I feel that the person is honesty relaying a true experience.
I agree. Yet I always look at my own opinions and that of which I am watching from multiple angles. In this case, I don't think he's right about what he's saying, but there is something genuine in what he believes (at least to himself). And it is that little smidge of his "truth" or idea of what that is, that contains something greater than the words he has uttered.
Such things have happened in this world, but I don't think it's what people make it out to be. When we think with our three-dimensional perceptions we tend to imagine things "literally" and they set of BS detectors of anyone. It does with me too.
Many people in these circuits are individuals who want attention or seek some sort of catharsis from perhaps other wise boring/miserable life. Some of them have truth, as if in real experiences, or at least, what they perceive to be real knowledge- and seek some way to communicate. Often times, or not- they become big figures within the "conspiracy/spiritual" markets and in order to maintain their appeal or attention, or perhaps even continuously make money from such things they tend to start "making shit up."
Yet- It is easy for me to tell when something is bullshit or not. And sometimes, every once in a while the "crazy" stuff resonates in a way that is not physically tangible. As if I know there is "truth" to what is being disclosed, but not in a literal way. Almost as a metaphor, or a symbol of things happening beyond our perception.
As soon as you start posting on this site, the Illuminati starts following your activities.
Haha...oddly enough- there is truth in this statement. There are many people on this site, who usually rarely post or have been "pushed away" by those who judge them- that will agree with you. Of course, the "label" Illuminati is incorrect, but it seems to be the scapegoat to blame for the "hidden consciousness" behind the veil of ordinary life.
As for people who are mis-interpreting things, and self-confirmation bias: That also includes the "super rational skeptics" on the other side of the fence. In fact, there is not a single person on this planet who doesn't do this. Even teachers. Some might make the effort to expand themselves to the point where there is more wisdom than knowledge- as if in applicable knowledge. But no matter how enlightened there will always be self-confirmation bias. It's how we work. It's how we misguide ourselves, and how we figure shit out.
We all "Read too much into shit." But if we didn't, we also wouldn't discover anything. Lo and behold people thought Newton was crazy for realizing the significance of an apple that fell from a tree. There as a perfect "explanation" at the time and anything else was insane. Turns out he was right. We all have something to share- and yea, lots of people when dealing with subjects this compelx- and massive in scope fall short in their perception. But even that in itself will have something to teach you
