Well, fringe in the sense that not that many have experienced it here, and that there appears insuffcient information to make a judgement about what it means. Fringe as in... who really knows why it happens?

I am simply pointing out that I think it firmly lies in area that we can explore, but only speculate about.

One was a Hero dream of my own, where there was this guy that sought to kill a girl. I had to escort her to this place, but had to stop her death from happening. The guy would ambush us each and every time and kill her. It would repeat in an exact loop. But I would retain all knowledge beforehand. So After like the tenth loop, I had all of this information that ended up me surprising the guy at the end and killing him!

LOL. Something tells me that might not have been the intended solution, if there was such a solution.. but then who really knows. This is on the fringe, even for what we do here.
103  Dreams / Welcome to Dreams! / Re: Hero Dreams on: October 25, 2013, 10:37:00
I have never experienced the looping situation, but I recall from Monroe's books he went through it. He went through a battery of tests with a certain entity to see what sort of mind he had and if he was compatible with certain tasks.  I believe there were times where he was given impromptu situations in the form of replayed life-experiences, and he had to come up with a reaction or response to the situation that was what the testor was looking for; there were a few he had to replay a number of times.

This sounds eerily similar, but I don't know what it means.

What is the best kind of fruit would you say?

Best how, and for what? Feeding people in a tropical climate? Curing Diabetes? Flavoring a smoothie?

I suspect the people who are among the most skilled in the world probably speak about it very little... at the end of the day they are probably mystics and monks who spend all of their time in meditative pursuits. Along those lines, those on this site that are among the more skilled may also speak about what they do quite infrequently.

So to me, there is no meaningful way to answer the question. It assumes a way to quantify and compare, and it assumes the data is there and collected.

It is indeed filters based, but the problem is they are on by default, and people aren't told directly about them. So the thing is that you need to both know you are being filtered, and already know about the thing you want to visit existing. If a person knew they were being filtered and knew there was something they wanted to see, they could call their provider and request an exception.

In my opinion this is a lot of work, and it very effectively keeps most people from viewing whatever the government has de-facto censored.

Hi Sadie,

What do you mean precisely that people will hear about you when they die?

I guess I don't have any particular questions, but it might be useful for you to share some experiences!

Yeah I have seen this. I mentioned it a few months back in "news" section, we have a decent discussion on it:

Haha, yeah, he does that. I agree with his ideas maybe 70% of the time. He is a very strong proponent of capitalism, and I do not fully follow him there either though. I think he is someone who very much believes in "transhumanism", and he views the tech world as the way to achieving it.

Remember, when you are a materialist, you have to be pretty damn creative if you want more life, lol.

I do also tend to think that while he has a strong grasp that our 2-party politics here in the states are a sham, he gives the democrats too much credit sometimes. Both parties are a crying shame today.

For me though I do like to listen to his news analyses, because he gives very strong background from a perspective I don't get much outside of speakers such as he.
111  Astral Chat / Welcome to News and Media! / Re: Coast to Coast AM Radio on: October 08, 2013, 23:12:00
Howard bloom is an interesting guy, to the extreme. I have followed his ideas and media for a while.

On the one hand he is a major leader in the field of "New-Atheism", and mind-body materialism in general, so you would think that he was some sort of rabid Richard Dawkin's type with nothing but bile, and nothing interesting to say. Withstanding all of that, he is an incredible social commentarist. He has a mind that has great talent for looking at current events, and tying them together with historical precedents and filling in the relavent background information. More or less, he excells at making the news make sense and have perspective.

Here is his channel, where he posts regular news meta-commentary:

His books... I think most people would pass on here, because the materialist ideology is quite different than what we practice, lol.

Yeah, and Akhenaten brought on the Tel-Armana period, an Egyptian renaissance...

If anything, Bush and Obama have given us a renaissance of stupid, and corporate pillaging of society's resources.

114  Astral Chat / Welcome to Astral Chat! / Re: why is techno/trance music so uplifting? on: September 18, 2013, 03:16:33
It actually has alot to do with the way our brains relate tension to emotions and voices.

Believe it or not the basis of music is empathy, as touchy-feely as that sounds. Here is why:

When we use tones in our speech to express our emotions, we speak in "intervals"; an interval is a set of tones with a mathematical relationship between them. The distance between the tones expresses concepts like tension, seriousness, pain, lightness, frivolity, etc. Using these intervals in speech is a way for us to share emotions by comparing them to the tensions between sounds. Music does exactly the same thing, on a much grander scale- it uses the same intervals we do to express emotions. Sensitivity to music is thus extremely related to how sensitive we are to other's emotions in speech, because it uses exactly the same neural circuitry.

As an example, imagine the vocal interval at the end of the question, "I don't look fat in this dress, do I?"

Pretty much all English speakers would say "do" and "I" with the same tone intervals which univsersally suggests a question. That interval tends to always be a perfect fifth, which is used in music to demand another response in the same way.

So music is pleasureable because it uses the same concepts we are built with for speech to grand scale.

To guarantee means that you are placing something on the line in exchange, in the case of failure.

What is he guaranteeing this with? Do we get our money back if he is wrong?
116  Astral Chat / Welcome to News and Media! / Re: Ancient Pyramid Destruction on: September 14, 2013, 05:12:52
Thanks for the link.

I wasn't aware the Bosnian Pyramids had been excavated to that extent already- they certainly are remarkable, and give great proof that many kinds of subtle technologies were understood at least well enough to be utilized to great human profit.

I am not really surpirsed that the ancients filled their time with pursuits like this if they didn't have other arts of sciences. I am in complete agreement that history seems to have an embargo on accepting the brilliance of people like that. The fact that so many volunteers are rabid to be involved in this project should be evidence that there is a powerful pull from the other end to know the full truth.
117  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Re: Questions about gifts given in the Astral Plane? on: September 12, 2013, 01:22:37
Maybe it is people's minds struggling to describe a non-physical object to themselves.

Or maybe they are just blobs.

Gifts as in sharing experiences? Sure.

Gifts as in other consciousnesses passing on their own memories to you for you to experience and learn from? Sure.

Gifts as in... things you get to take "back" with you to your everyday life, and put on your desk? Never heard of that actually happening, and I wager strongly against it ever happening.

Anyhoo, things change, members come and go so there's nothing wrong with asking the same old question if you're interested in what the current members think and not the junior high kids that ruled this forum 8-9 years ago.

Personally, I would delete all those old threads that were talking about dragon ball z silliness. Utter nonsense. grin

Lol you get frustrated reading it? I was here for all of that, haha.

I remember there was a poster named "KiBeginnersNightmare" or something very close to that, who would post every week looking for ways to shoot energy balls so he could conquer his enemies... in the physical world, haha. And then next week we would get the update about exactly how big the energy balls he was tossing were just then, or that he was now interested in shooting balls while levitating.

121  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Astral Projection Experiences! / Re: Drinking/smoking weed/other substances on: August 29, 2013, 06:32:28
Yes, there are 120 topics in the archives where this question is asked, maybe twice that even.

Short answer... it depends very much on the substance in question. People tend to lump them all into one giant category called "drugs" and want a blanket answer for all of them. Would you do this with other nouns? For instance, would you ask if "animals" are dangerous? Depends very much on the animal, and in what circumstances and context.

You don't need them to project. A small number of herbs may assist slightly, but none of them is the magic bullet. Anything like alcohol or other depressants will generally work against you, because you are seeking an alert frame of mind, and those substances run counter to that goal. Some of the hallucinogens get you to a similar place as a projection (albeit with far less control), but their safe use is another topic completely.
122  Magic / Welcome to Magic! / Re: Kuman thong - Real or folk belief? on: August 21, 2013, 17:15:15
Yes, I think that goes without saying even.
123  Magic / Welcome to Magic! / Re: Kuman thong - Real or folk belief? on: August 21, 2013, 15:22:56
Nothing I have ever encountered in my life here or there has suggested to me that this should be possible. I just can't think of a mechanism that would explain this ability.
124  Astral Chat / Welcome to Astral Chat! / Re: What will be left of the "self" ? on: August 21, 2013, 11:34:01
I think that they are asking which parts of us are ultimately tied to the physical body, and which are unchanging parts of ourselves that we will retain when we die.

For me, I would say most of us is physical (at least what you think of as you), and will be left behind when you die. We will retain a perspective, and somewhere in our being we will have the memories of our past selves, but the being you were will have ceased to exist. You will of course continue to exist, but you, and all the people you know can only be "themselves" once. Your life here and now has great value, and contains things you will never have access to ever again. 

At least that is what I surmise.
125  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Re: Difference between AProjection, LDreaming and OBE? on: August 20, 2013, 23:26:07
Yes, to the model I probably subscribe best to, dreams and projections don't take place in separate places.

It isn't like... "Now I am dreaming, and I am in 'dreamland' ", and, "Ok, now I am having a projection, and I am in spiritual-land, not at all like fake 'dreamland' "

I tend to think it is a continium of consciousness. We are more awake and aware at some times, and less at others, just like in waking life. For instance, you can be awake and alert at noonday, and that is one mental state, and then maybe go to a pub at 8 and have a pint or two, and be a little woozy- you aren't in a different reality, very few people would say that- the quality of your consciousness has changed, that is all.

So too with lucid dreams or projections. You are not going to a different place, you are rather in a different state of mind, with differing quality of consciousness. Both experiences can end up in the same way, and teach similar lessons.

(And you made me read my post in a Thomas Campell voice, lol)
