why, Why, WHY ???
ummm...
well, i dunno... always been interested in "the big questions" (heh)... certainly since before i needed to shave (& that was sometime during LBJ's white house trip...)
the big questions --- y'know, like:
whence?
whither?
wherefore?
&c

~
but, having been around this spinning ball for a few decades (like mr mushroom :wink: ), i have COME TO THE REALIZATION that, ok, i don't know it all (no, seriously, folks, i am not omniscient, in spite of what you may have heard...)
however... i do seem to know (if that is not too strong a word) a few things...
and it is possible that some of the little that i do know may be, well, transmissible somehow...
so

Hell's Bells man! If it weren't for my Lady who is a veritable gift from GOD - who says that she finds me "fascinating" - there would be no other human beings in the corner of the Bermuda Triangle in which I reside with whom I could even begin to bore with extended, un-asked-for explanations of arcane subjects.

I have never been interested in sports. I am ignorant of politics (to me, it's all the same power-motive filtered through transparent ideologies). I'm not a 'family-man' and have never had a desire for fathering or raising children. I don't gamble at the tracks or drink in bars. I'm not a workaholic. I watch one TV show a week with m'Lady - 'Enterprise.' I haven't used cannabis for many years, except on the rarest of occasions, so there are no longer long listless hours of non-doing. I am not a member of an organized religious congregation.

I have worked as a clinical counselor at middle schools for the past 18 years, (and occasionally do private practice of hypnotherapy). I work 37.5 hours per week, 190 days of the year. Great insight and remarkable clinical skills are not all that necessary to grok the workings of the average 11-14 year old mind, so I have need to express more sophisticated psychological and psychospiritual notions with others, and I have time to do so. Now since the preponderance of our American society is preoccupied with many of the above-mentioned things, and I am not connected with a university with a staff of philosophers, theologians or psychologists, there is literally no one that I've met in years (besides my last Jungian analyst) who has any interest in the things that I AM interested in.

So, while I am always open to learning, I am here primarily to help and to teach. I prefer the S&P because it oftentimes opens out into the Transpersonal domain, and it is the Transpersonal, the Transcendental, around which my life has been centered since my first Psychedelic Experiences over 30 years ago. My lifestyle has been an illustration and an articulation of The Experience which led me through several academic disciplines and degrees and now, decades of life. I am fulfilled for the most part in all domains of life but for the social domain. My Lady and I are on parallel paths, but I have the greater need to reach out and share with others. So here we are. Truth, Light and Peace be unto all of you.

Lucky you (for the most part...from my perspective)

I read a draft of a family auto-biography of a US agricultural representitive to Egypt , that I discovered in the attic...and I read an account of a couple circumnavigating the globe, and each narrative contained only the male perspective.

Why didn't the women contribute their own views and chapters?

It's not about luck, it's about 'following one's bliss,' as mythologist Joseph Campbell put it. I put in my dues for years before I found my niche in life.

My Lady registered here once upon a time, but never actually posted because she just couldn't take late male adolescent mentality that she encountered. (I don't know how she's agonna teach high school like she plans). This is too bad for all of us because a female, INTP, Entheogenic Explorer would be most welcome here.
Sometimes I've posted her input, or let her get on with my screen name. Like the Yin in the Yang - not immediately apparent, but very much part of the whole.

LMAO
That's so ridiculous. I'll listen to anybody's bullshit...
I don't know about INTP and all that label hoohah, but there is a shortage in the female perspective department.

Well, she's not interested in "bullshit," and has zero tolerance. She WILL discuss philosophy and religion for hours at a time, like we used to at our home with 'enter' (remember him?) before he flaked on us, or with 'flyguy,' (who doesn't much post here anymore) when he flies down here. Life is too short for nonsense.

Zero tolerance for bulls**t, which she can simply ignore, and respond to what she wants to respond to.

kind of ironic. Life is too short so I'm going to judge and hold myself higher than these adolescence males. No offense though, just my male adolescent gut reaction.

She can borrow my avatar,


--------------------
To call humans 'rational beings' does injustice to the term, 'rational.'  Humans are capable of rational thought, but it is not their essence.  Humans are animals, beasts with complex brains.  Humans, more often than not, utilize their cerebrum to rationalize what their primal instincts, their preconceived notions, and their emotional desires have presented as goals - humans are rationalizing beings.

Hey umm.....:rolleyes: i havent read the replys or the post at that but im going to reply to the title for the hell of it.... Well, i post here because writing is a great way to get shit off your chest and im to lazy to write stupid shit down so i just type em up in here. But at the root of the uncontrolable desire to post here is.. the replys. I either learn something new from every discussion i have here or it just sparks my desire to research something further. We have some pretty intelectual people in here('some..') All with diffrent ideas about the world they live in. And when these minds clash it's a fun explosion of ideas and thats how we further open our minds. It's fun chaos to see people arguee on this forum. This is the longest time ive been posting on a forum. I usually get tired of forums but there is always something to talk about in here because the world keeps changing.

No problem in being adolescent - it's the stage connecting late childhood to early adulthood. The problem is being a 'bulls**t' kind of person which means being a fabricator of false information during a debate in order to appear more knowledgeable, and hence superior or the 'winner.' Another meaning of bulls**t is someone who is an outright liar. Neither of us has ever been 'bulls**t artists' (as if it's an art).

Also, if "higher" means (as it does for Ken Wilber) having a more inclusive or a more comprehensive perspective (like being on a 'high' mountain peak and therefore seeing further in every direction than those with a 'lower' vantage point), then we DO have such a perspective inasmuch as we are twice the age of the average Shroomerite, have experienced life for twice as long, and more importantly, have been doing the kind of exploring that Shroomerites do since before they were born. This isn't bragging, it's stating a fact about how one acquires experience - namely, duration in time. An evaluation is not necessarily a judgement in a perjorative sense. I, for one, would rather have an experienced surgeon address my problem than a surgeon just out of school. If that is a "judgement," to you, than so be it.
