We are all omnipotent and gnostic, we just forgot :smile:

To completely remember, one would no longer exist as an entity outside of the whole

MarkostheGnostic said:
Perhaps the intention of expressing yourself such that everyone can think "that's Greek to me" makes YOU feel superior. Meanwhile, you and I are not communicating, and while it is not true that my reponse is "stupid," your response is revealing of your own disturbance. As I said, I am not here to address your 'issues,' I'm here recreationally to discuss ideas. I hope things improve for you. Adios.




I think you understood what I said very well. No I don't feel the list bit superior and the only reason that I wrote that is because you first said that you doubt I know the meaning of the word. It isn't me who feel superior. Nor do I put tags on people even myself, gnostic...Disturbance? But ofcourse I'm disturbed. You are breaking my balls because not only my first post was not commented by you but furthermore you went to start a race of who and what to prove yourself and every time I said something you always had these stupid answers like a 10 year old. And you are not here to discuss ideas you fuck because if you were you would have answered my first post and any of this would never had to happen. I am sure that the people who read all these understand. Adios amigo.

That answer just confirmed everything I said. Thank you for that, you made it a lot easier.

I love the implications this thread has. The first post, I seriously love it. Seldom do you see people bring this up. I think one of the reasons for that is because so many would hate to have their quite possibly psychotic delusions of mind-easing religion challenged, by thinker-inspired and questioning thoughts like this.

Threadstarter, we're on the same page.

Interesting thread bump.  But there actually is a good answer to this, and that is that schizophrenics have a great deal of trouble adjusting to society and will sometimes have psychotic fits.  People who have mystical experiences, on the other hand, tend to be more well-adjusted afterward.  So whatever the legitimacy of the things they experience, it most certainly is not a pathology.
