Sorry people but I have come to realize that this forum is useless
    #3541999 - 12/25/04 01:40 PM (11 years, 11 months ago)

None of you remember me but I used to post a lot here. None of us have the answers and I am done waisting my time trying to figure them out. All I know is I have to find some way to get more power than George Soros, Bill Gates, and Pablo Escobar combined. Then spend all that power on manipulating land to end world hunger, monopolize the construction industry to provide shelter, provide free education, and provide necessary hygiene necessity, and ultimately unite the world so we can harness the one aspect of our species that separates us from every other; our level of communication.

I don't think the purpose of this forum is to find any answers for much except shroom questions.

I remember you, Philanthropist.  I have enjoyed your posts.  You haven't been here in a while. 

There's always shit going on somewhere, whether in our lives or out in the big, wide world.  Christmas is a nice time to take a break from the shit and just be happy with our family and friends and being grateful for what we have. 

Of course, you don't have to be happy about anything.  I realize we all have the right to be pissed off about our lives or the world at any given time. 

But I just read this in my email before I came to the Shroomery.  I don't know if it is apropos, but here it is:

I Am Thankful

FOR THE WIFE WHO SAYS IT'S HOT DOGS TONIGHT BECAUSE SHE IS HOME, NOT WITH SOMEONE ELSE.

FOR THE HUSBAND WHO IS ON THE SOFA BEING A COUCH POTATO BECAUSE HE IS HOME  AND NOT OUT WITH SOMEONE ELSE.

FOR THE TEENAGER WHO IS COMPLAINING ABOUT DOING DISHES, BECAUSE THAT MEANS SHE IS AT HOME, NOT ON THE STREETS.

FOR THE MESS TO CLEAN AFTER A PARTY, BECAUSE IT MEANS THAT I HAVE BEEN SURROUNDED BY FRIENDS.

FOR THE CLOTHES THAT FIT A LITTLE TOO TIGHT, BECAUSE IT MEANS I HAVE ENOUGH TO EAT. FOR MY SHADOW THAT WATCHES ME WORK, BECAUSE IT MEANS I AM OUT IN THE SUNSHINE.

FOR A LAWN THAT NEEDS MOWING, WINDOWS THAT NEED CLEANING, AND GUTTERS THAT NEED FIXING, BECAUSE IT MEANS I HAVE A HOME.

FOR ALL THE COMPLAINING I HEAR ABOUT THE GOVERNMENT, BECAUSE IT MEANS THAT WE HAVE FREEDOM OF SPEECH.

FOR THE PARKING SPOT I FIND AT THE FAR END OF THE PARKING LOT, BECAUSE IT MEANS I AM CAPABLE OF WALKING AND THAT I HAVE BEEN BLESSED WITH TRANSPORTATION.

FOR MY HUGE HEATING BILL, BECAUSE IT MEANS I AM WARM.

FOR THE LADY BEHIND ME IN CHURCH THAT SINGS OFF KEY, BECAUSE IT MEANS THAT I CAN HEAR.

FOR THE PILE OF LAUNDRY AND IRONING, BECAUSE IT MEANS I HAVE CLOTHES TO WEAR.

FOR WEARINESS AND ACHING MUSCLES AT THE END OF THE DAY, BECAUSE IT MEANS THAT I HAVE BEEN CAPABLE OF WORKING HARD.

FOR THE ALARM THAT GOES OFF IN THE EARLY MORNING HOURS, BECAUSE IT MEANS THAT I AM ALIVE.

AND FINALLY...FOR TOO MUCH E-MAIL, BECAUSE IT MEANS I HAVE FRIENDS WHO ARE THINKING OF ME.

_______________________________________________________

Well, Merry Christmas, Philanthropist.  Go get drunk.  A good hangover always takes one's minds off one's troubles.  :grin:

The day will come when, after harnessing the ether, the winds, the tides, gravitation, we shall harness for God the energies of love. And, on that day, for the second time in the history of the world, man will have discovered fire.  -Teilard

I Am Thankful...for that "roach joint" i keep. reminds me of the freedom (well..not total freedom) to toke up, and that when i ran out of weed and fiend, its there to be found and smoked. But, what im really thankful for this year is the gift of knowing that Cannabis is indeed a gift from God for all of us to enjoy but respect.

Merry Christmas Shroomery and smoke on.

Hi Philanthropist and merry Christmas, I remember you.


The reason why you are not happy with your life is because you have over-inflated ambition. You desire that which is not achievable. Basically what you said in your post is that you want to rule the world. If only you were in control of everything, then you could make it better for everybody. This is a very common delusion. Check out spacedragon's thread; he also has been called to rule the world. My own brother has been telling me for years that God wants him to unite all the people of the world under his leadership so that he can build cities in space, because we have to get off this planet before we annihilate ourselves. It sounds to me like your aspirations are a little saner than spacedragon's or my brother's, but it's really all the same. If we really knew what people were thinking, we would probably find that one in ten have similar messiah complexes.

I'm not trying to pick on you man, really. :heart: 

What I'm attempting here is a reality check. Like the rest of us, you are one man who was born into a good and beautiful, yet broken world. You will be here for a little while, and then you will die. Do little good things to affect those around you, that's how you make the world a better place.

I don't expect you to listen to me; my brother never does, but maybe just reading this will help. My brother is thirty two years old, broke, ready to leave his wife for the third time, and his teeth are rotting out of his head. It's OK though because his time has almost come, and when the time is right, he will ascend to greatness and lead the people of the world to salvation in cities in space. This has been his fantasy since we were kids, meanwhile he has accomplished nothing. He has never held a job for more than six months, has ruined his credit by defaulting on loans and not paying his bills, dropped out of college in the middle of his first semester... I could go on. Despite all this he truly has convinced himself that he will be the savior of humanity. It reminds me of that Grateful Dead song "Estimated Prophet."

I don't know your situation, maybe you are stable and productive, but I do know that there are way to many people out there doing nothing to make the world a better place NOW, because they are planning to 'save' the whole world in the future; these people are a dime a dozen.

Let go of the grandiose escapist fantasy and start living. Then you will find contentment.

Wow, some pretty good posts.

However I must contend. This place is anything but useless. Long time lurker, just started posting occaisionally and I think that I've much to learn. The thing about it is that things are always changing... I may not be the brightest cookie, but I know enough to take advantage of this great forum.
Dunno where I was going with the whole shpiel, but yeah... definitely not useless. However, good luck with your future endeavours! :smirk:

I hear that, but unfortunately, if someone has Paranoid Personality Disorder, of Schizophrenia, Paranoid Type, or is on a hypermanic phase of Bipolar Disorder, then such a person will not be able to "let go," and a reality check will have to be introduced from outside of the person. That outside frame of reference would have to be accepted over the individual's own cherished delusion, and internalized as true. That would mean deflating the powerful-feeling delusional ego and ceasing to be the 'savior,' while giving someone else 'control' over his/her life.

The real 'saviors' of humanity demonstrate profound humility. They 'realize' that they are but fleeting 'servants' of the Absolute - NOT the Absolute personified. This is the predicament of this type of mental dis-ease. The 'saviors' who are put on pedestals, are put there by others, not by themselves. Everyone in the world can see this fact except the delusional.
