Why does The Shroomery need this forum?
    #4545108 - 08/17/05 03:01 AM (11 years, 3 months ago)

What do S&P and mushrooms have to do with each other?

Why can't we just drop this forum from the list?

Is it really worth the drama?

Maybe just split it up into 2 forums:

Willing to learn [open and beyond] (S&P)
and
Nailed it supremecy [dry and closed] (S&P)

Although everybody loves a drama and the seemingly opposing forces are healing as we continually realise that we are infact very similar and desire the same thing. Eventually our forces will merge as we realise the shields no longer serving any of us and we unite in a higher cause.

If you used that logic, then you really don't need half of the forums. OTD, the Pub, PAL, Culinary, Science&Technology, look down the list and you'll see the Shroomery has expanded to much more than a cultivation website.

The Shroomery doesn't need this forum, or in fact any other forums besides the Mush Cultivation ones to serve its stated purpose. However, if you want the Shroomery to expand into a thriving community, then you need forums for people to simply talk and put their thoughts in, which is what the entire community section is about. S&P is simply the thoughts too philosophical for a light-hearted place like the Pub, or too serious to throw to the hello.jpgs in OTD.

I don't think many of the Shroomery members even grow mushrooms, and many people don't stay here for mushroom cultivation information. People might come here to get the information, but they often stay because of the community, and this community has grown enough to sponsor gatherings, friendships, even marriage among its members.

mushroom are known to sometimes produce the tendancy toward philosophical and spiritual discussions in their users. it's one of the side affects. hopefully having this forum helps to keep the other forums more organized.

p.s I would post in both :wink:

Well, technically we don't even need the cultivation forum or this website altogether. Mushrooms grow naturally.

I say keep it all and continue expanding. This place is awesome. Its like a religion without walls. The one thing that should unite all people in this forum is the willingness to grow. The knowledge base here is huge.

Infinity in all directions.  :dj:

Seeing as its a mushroom cultivation forum, growing comes naturally to many people here.

Funny, you all have focused on my second and least serious and/or interesting question.

How 'bout my first and third?

What do S&P and mushrooms have to do with each other?

and

Is it really worth the drama?

:wink:

Not much. Philosophy is in the human mind, not in the mushrooms.

Probably not, but neither are most of the other drama-producing forums.

Not that you're even the mod of this forum anyway. :wink:

The spirit falls under the category of spiritual delusions, perhaps the spiritual delusion of all time. There is no spirit or soul, simply the human brain.

It's too late at night... and I'm in no mood for fancy philosophical discussions

There is a spirit, and soul.

There... that ought to be the end of that :grin:

/me washes hands of the whole thing

I disagree. I reached in for my soul, and only came out with some sticky brain tissue.

Seeing as we evolved from primitive bacteria, did the soul evolve with us? Do bacteria have souls? Or did they just magically possess us, like Scientology states?
