POLL: Is "something" happening?
    #2159900 - 12/05/03 01:02 AM (13 years, 1 day ago)

Inspired by my very high mind and something I just read that salviadog said (thanks man!).

Ok, first thing's first: we have to get as specific as possible here...

Unfortunately it's rather impossible to get very specific due to the nature of the question :smirk:

So: what is meant here by "something" is some change which will be much "more" of a change than usual. Something that is going to happen (let's say within 10 years) that will change the fabric of human civilization. I think most of you should know what I'm getting at here: that big "something" a lot of us think is comming.

You can post your idea of what the "something" is, if you think something is happening, but please refrain from posting anything other than your theory :wink:

------------


Is "something big" on the horizon?
Yes
No

--------------------
You're here because you know something.
What you know you can't explain,
But you feel it;
You've felt it your entire life.
That there's something wrong with the world.
You don't know what it is, but it's there....
Like a splinter in your mind...
Driving you mad.

The feeling I get is that we are long overdue for a happening of this sort. I cannot look 20 or even 10 years into the future and imagine things going on harmoniously in the context they are now.

Our parents are born to their parents, sent to school to get a good job to send their children to a good school, so that they can be parents of children who attend a good school, so that they can get jobs to fund the education of their children, so that they can have jobs which fund the education of...

This is just nonsense. Too long has the real meaning of our human life been ignored, or lost in our frightened, insane amnesia. Our governmental institutions are poisoned with corruption without exception. The social phenomenon of our self-focus is more intense than ever before, and our insecurity is directly proportionate. It is the unnoticed but complete stagnation of the human spirit, the murky undercurrents of this fetid swamp turning a clunky wheel of large-scale dissatisfaction and apathy which can only foster the extremely rapid degeneration of social orders.

In short, something's gotta give.

Let's not forget about good old McKenna, either. Terence was such a sweetheart.

Yes, something is going to happen.

My 'theory' is found in the thread I just, coincidentally, created called, "Epiphany!".

A bell, collectively, will ring.

I think it might mean, "School's over".

Then, the real beginning begins.

oh, this is sooo why I like the shroomery. only here... this is like an onion spoof, it sounds so stereotypically tripperish, but at the same time, yeah, I feel like a new plateau if some sort of cosmic significance is on the way. 

oddly, virtually everyone who doesn't take mushrooms doesn't see this coming, and warn that many other era's have thought they were the last before a new thing- and we know how that's turned out.

oh, and I think it's great that thusfar everyone has voted "yes".  :lol:

And something like this: "Old men will have visions..." or something like that.

Not the saint, but the sinner that repenteth, is he to whom the full length and breadth, and height and depth, of life's meaning is revealed. Good and evil loose all objective meaning and are seen as equally necessary and contrasting elements in the masterpiece that is the universe.

Something will happen because atomics are everywhere, nature isn't anywhere, and people are all fucking assholes. Yes, people are going towards their karmic destiny where the killers will be killed. I hate to say it, but we're a foul species and deserve to cease. Something new needs to take over. We're dinosaurs, and living on their remains.

It is interesting to note; in the histroy of mankind there have been only a few who have, by there own intellect and discovery changed the nature of life for everyone. Some feel there may be as many as three of these individuals alive today--simply as a matter of genetic chance.

I think that in times of political unrest, people tend to start believing something "mystical" is happening. Think back to the sixties, when everyone talked about how the planet was going to change because the age of aquarius was beginning and everyone was going to start living in peaceful enlightened harmony.

Didn't happen, of course, but lots of people thought they were in the middle of it.

Now, again, people are saying we're at the dawn of a magical and wonderful new age.

What we need is a medium that exposes the fact that there are so many other consciounesses other than the one the machine has forced apon us. I can certainly see more and more young people opening their eyes.

I have thought a lot about that.

However I would not apply the word "mysticism" to what I am speaking of. There is a rational explanation for this, although to make any specifics at this point is probably useless.

It's all about patterns, if you ask me :wink:

I'm not saying I don't have ideas, if I didn't I wouldn't be talking about this, but I don't always like expressing ideas I'm not very sure of yet :wink:

It would be useless because I think the event is either (a) still too far off to have a clear picture of, or (b) the event by nature is not comprehensible to me.
