Ages lol. The last time I saw you around, Robert Bruce was still affiliated with the forum. That must be what, 2003?

Welcome back!

Thanks Stillwater. Robert Bruce - yes he was. I think I was active here until 2006, then I drifted away.

Got to say, it's a lot quieter these days. I guess that's to do with the popularity of social media.

I think it is sort of part of a cycle.

There are peaks when the public is more interested in this stuff. For instance, in the early days of the public internet boom (1997 or so) there was a large uptick in the interest in consciousness studies / metaphysical ideas that happened naturally due to the availability of the material to a new audience, around sites like "Spiritweb". The Pulse sort of sprang up riding that wave.

And then of course there was the 2012 nonsense that got people thinking about metaphysical ideas again, but in sort of a fad mentality, so small uptick again there. There hasn't really been anything since then.

I think the Pulse' membership is falling off a bit due to the manual account registration now, as we do accidentally reject many actual people (as opposed to bots). The ones that are interested despite the difficulty will email me to help them (because I am the first name in the mods list lol); I bet you will now be the first name, since you have the oldest account!

I see you are still first in the list Stillwater - that's fine by me.  :lol:

As for the 2012 nonsense, perhaps we should start a rumour for a new 'end date' sometimes soon. That might bring more people to the site.

Whaddyathink?  :-D

Hmm... looks like my account predated yours by a bit  :lol:

It is the only account of any kind from that far back I still use, lol.

And yeah... that is sort of how you start a religion. Maybe though... we don't prophesy an end date, but... a start date? That might get people thinking...

Start of what? Well that is part of the mystery. It will be partially revealed when you reach Metan level 7, at least...

Welcome back Selski. I obviously wasn't here back then so am pretty new here. The last week or so I've been rather busy offline but I'm always around.

Wait, what? Metan 7? But I'm only a 6, LOL.

LOL Stillwater. I love the idea of a start date, rather than an end date.

Thank you Nameless. I shall look forward to getting to know you in time.  :-)
