I'm afraid I don't have any... It's simply not the kind of thing you'd photograph. And besides, I don't think a photo would do it justice. =/

Do _not_ tell me what purpose is. Anyone claiming to know it is but a FOOL!
104  Magic / Welcome to Magic! / Which Witch is Which? on: November 13, 2003, 13:07:37
"Purpose"... I just noticed I get a twitch when I read that word.
Prolly comes from searching for it for 7 years and finding out it doesn't exist. =/

Novice, would the explanation "The all is an extension of ourselves" suit your preference?

I'm talking in the sense of academic value. No matter how real a certain fact is, unless you can point at its source you have got nothing. The logic is something you don't need to prove since it should be self-evident (objective), but facts are subjective, so they need to be accounted for. Best thing would be facilitating a method for people to get this subjective experience for themselves, but that is not always plausible. Therefore one refers to sources, the existence of which can be verified.

Doing this, which only requires a little _effort_, would be enough to give sceptics a very hard time and convince the general public.

I think it's damn annoying. I shut my alarm clock off 3 or 4 times before I finally wake up and do it physically. Other times I make a couple of trips to the bathroom before I wake up and do it. Once I had eaten breakfast before I woke up... =/

Anyway, as far as visualization goes, practice makes perfect. Meditation and concentration might be good to practice too.
Oh yes, the looong and tedious way. I'm aware of no shortcuts.
110  Magic / Welcome to Magic! / I would like a teacher on: November 10, 2003, 19:08:24
In reply to the topic; so would I.

In reply to the part about martial arts; it depends on your teacher. Do you practice Ju-do as an external or internal martial art?
Tai Chi is strictly internal, and if you wish you can learn the combat-form of Tai Chi Chuan. It is said to be the most effective form of combat in existence.
Or you might want to combine both martial arts and magic, and learn Chi Kung?
111  Spiritual Evolution / Welcome to Spiritual Evolution! / What really is Divine Life Purpose? on: November 10, 2003, 13:25:07
I realized the answer to this question late yesterday night. I had been moping all day because of something that I 'saw' that morning and didn't really realize the connection at that time.

If you want purpose you'll give up free will, and it seems will is free.

When I understood this I laughed out loud. Divine Purpose was replaced by Divine Comedy. =)

Not really important, but I'm faily sure you mean 180. 360 is a full circle.
Good luck. [Smiley]
113  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Astral Projection Experiences! / Somethin VERY different !!!!!!! on: November 10, 2003, 06:09:51
This argument's weakest point seems to be the lack of quoted sources, but if we were to have a source itself speak out, then we would indeed have something that could be worked with.

("David & Stein Reich" returns no direct hits on Google.)

I still can not figure out what those people wanted with world-dominance. Who could possibly want the sum of the troubles of Earth on their hands?

And Utopia, by the way, is anarcho-socialist. Authoritarian capitalism is the dystopia.

Artificial Intelligence.
But I don't have enough insight about awareness to say if it is needed, if it is possibe, or will simply come naturally.
Anyway, you'd need a super-computer running at 10 times the top speed of the day to mimic a human brain, and if they build one of those anytime soon, I don't think they'll use it to play games. =/
Coding the AI would also be a major task, and you'd probably have to fight religious fanatics to pull it off.

Virtual reality would be easier, and if you're thinking of The Matrix; that.

I'm not sure if you could implement your own set of rules onto the astral plane, and if you could you'd be talking of efforts that would push the topic towards Spiritual Development.

In all honesty, I think the effort required to do this would push it away from 'entertianment' and onto 'work', because it would be a helluva lot of work.

Well, unless of course you're Buddha.

I am Buddha. You are Buddha. Everybody is Buddha.

(I am not making this up.)

You would not need the net for that, as the net essentially would only function as a focal point. I think the most effective focal point would be a single image created for the purpose as everybody would then share the visual impression. The image should probably be representative of the game, like what you'd imagine a 'screenshot' would be.
Given enough concentration in both time and effort, imagined things should become independent, so that would be how you add things to it. It would not require a person to function as 'server' and the game would evolve on its own. I however do not feel very comfortable with the thought that constructs created for this purpose be given vast amount of energy. - Could have less than desirable side-effects.
119  Magic / Welcome to Magic! / Who's more powerful: Men or Women? on: November 08, 2003, 20:47:15
Not to drift too far from the topic, I just had a thought: Now when the sun, AFAIK a masculine symbol, is highly active, and this night's (Night here.) lunar eclipse coincidence, it surely allows for some symbolical interpritation. During lunar eclipses the moon becomes red, so could one interprit this as an enforcement of the feminine aspect?
And what a wonderful thing to remember the claim of 'strange' things starting to happen now in November, wouldn't you say?
- Is this the night our most important celestials bodies become one?

Only one thing is for sure for me and that is that I am going to stay up and watch the event. (I like to watch.) [Wink]

It had been the most beatiful day,
and when I stepped out, 1:30AM, clouds covered the sky. =(

A friend of mine that I have known through most of school asked me one day about a year ago if I wasn't high all the time. - I grinned at him.

Spirituality and philosophy are to me two different genres, the second one I have almost completed and the first one something that I have recently embareked upon. Both are important. I could tell you how to be proficient in philosophy, but hen I'd have to account for 6, 7 years of thought for you. Philosophy, in the end, is logic.


The only purpose alcohol serves in this area is to test your self-control.

The people to blame are those holding the strings on the American puppet of a president, and the hate-mongrers on the other side of the conflict.
If they would disappear, so would the conflict.

In my opinion it's an act of selfishness beyond forgiving what the people in control of this are doing. I just hope it can be blamed on ignorance, otherwise I might lose all hope I have in our human race.

Same old story, new words. The message, easy to tell harder to live.

The problem is Economy. -  The math of limited resources. People want not what they need, but what they think they need, and that is what advertisement exists for.
Maya, illusion, is deep-rooted.

Astral version of a calling-card, eh? Everybody has them these days...

I actually played with the thought that either "Taal" or "Moss" were important since "Johan" is rather generic and planned to focus on these as keywords, so I greately appreciate your input.
I think "Johan" has good intentions since that's the impression I got, so I'm not very worried about getting double-crossed.
125  Psychic and Paranormal / Welcome to Psychic and Paranormal! / prefer death over this on: November 06, 2003, 14:21:18
Age 12 I suffered from a strange combination of fear of death and thoughts of suicide. Eventually I was too tired to run and saw that my only choice was to be brave and face my fears. After doing so I did not have to be brave again, since all my fears faded away. My thoughts of suicide did not go away, but rather became a stranger yet ally that I denied out of hope for tomorrow being a better day. Over time I confronted my problems one by one, mostly an unfounded worrying, through simply rationalising.
Worry, you see, is irrational. There is no point in worrying about things you can not change, and things you _can_ change you will do your best to change anyway. There simply is no reason one should worry about anything.

In short my suggestion is that, if all else fails, confront your fears before you take self-destructive action. Confronted they _will_ fall to ashes.
