Why do we do this?
    #1154667 - 12/19/02 10:54 AM (14 years, 7 months ago)

Why do we gather here in this forum?

What are we doing here and why? Why does it seem so important, yet so useless at the same time?

Any thoughts, forum-heads?

Insert an "I think" mentally in front of eveything I say that seems sketchy, because I certainly don't KNOW much. Also; feel free to yell at me.

So we can rediscover communication... You know, that thing that people born into modern-day America lack?

maybe we are all suppose to meet up in real life eventually... and this is just our way of coming to get to know eachother :smile: . we are all like minded individuals i think when it comes to the rest of the world. we are the shroomerites  :laugh: . ive heard some people saying that they had visions of a whole bunch of people in the future coming together , (dont know if they are from the shroomery) but this is what i would gather from what they said. that would be sweet if all the people from the shroomery were in one  place....

I cannot speak for anyone else, but I can tell you why I come here.

I love learning.  I have a passion for seeking knowledge, for gaining wisdom, for expanding my mind.  And the best way to do these things is through communication with others.  Through exchange of ideas and sharing of thoughts.  Afterall, humans would still be simple, hunter/gatherer animals if we had not developed language and communication.
 
This "place" in cyberspace is the best place I have found that allows me to do the things I mentioned above.  Here there is a variety of different people from different places with different backgrounds and viewpoints and thoughts and ideas, and we can all share these things freely without fear of what we say because, hell, it's just an internet message board! :smile:

I feel like I can learn more here than I can from watching TV, reading a book, or even sitting in class and listening to a lecture.  I love learning, and thus I love this place because I feel it is the best type of learning environment there is.

That's why I come here! :smile:

Namaste.

i come here to learn, and discuss shit.
but i think one majour thing that makes me want to come back. is the people. i have been to a lot of forums, as i'm sure most of you have. and i have to say, that this is the nicest place to be, i haven't been here that long, but in anyother place, i would have gotten 100000 nasty comments and attacks.
and so far i haven't had one. and this means a lot.
i feel i can express my true opinion here, and not have to worry about someone putting me down. i'm sure a couple people will eventully. but overall, it's a nice place to be, with nice people.
:smile:

To make it even a nicer place, you might want to remove the "motherfucker" from your signature. :tongue:

My answers aren't so different from the others but there are a few differences.

I come to the Shroomery because I love mushrooms and science.

The three topics we discuss here have been my passion for many many years.

My love of loves is Philosophy. It was my friend and helped me make sense of a world gone insane. A world that I could not understand.

Now, after many years of hard work I think I have a few answers to some of life's most perplexing riddles. But I do not come here to teach what I have learned. I come here to be with people like me and people that I genuinely care for.

I have been to many forums as soylent green said but I have never been to one as cool as this or as cool as the Shroomery. If this place were filled with a bunch of arrogant assholes who KNEW everything I wouldn't be around. We are all just learning and hopefully learning to love one another.

Peace,

What if everything around you
Isn't quite as it seems?
What if all the world you think you know,
Is an elaborate dream?
And if you look at your reflection,
Is it all you want it to be?
