An Omen
    #936272 - 10/06/02 12:39 PM (18 years, 11 months ago)

Just moved to another state and saw this from my house after a long and arduous journey. This MUST be an omen of good fortune. Pardon me while I go search for my Pot o' Gold.

You've really gotta stop mocking people for seeing the interrelation between the beings of the earth. We all have different beliefs and perceptions, stop being an ass. You don't have to share beliefs with anyone, but making fun of them is ignorant.

Taking the time to recognize the beauty of nature and sharing it with my friends is being an ass? Whom am I mocking by taking a photograph?

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.

My friend.

With all due respect. Other people(not me), might see that comment as sarcastic mockery of many people's beliefs here. Other people(not me, mind you) might be getting frustrated by what they perceive as you "playing dumb" when confronted about it.

But hey, that's them.

And when the pot of gold appears will you mark that down as synchronicity?

Thank you for sharing that photograph. It makes me hope for you. If the transition went smoothly I am pleased.

There have been three times in my life where rainbows marked a transition and each one is remembered although some are nearly twenty years old.

1. While near the end of my stay in Long Island I drove home from work just after a torrential downpour. The cars in front of me where throwing the water up off the road creating rainbows behind each tire of every car. It was magical.

2. Upon arriving in Colorado a huge rainbow appeared in the sky just days after I settled in my condo. Shortly after that I was inviting to watch a sunrise over the plains in Boulder. My life has never been the same.

3. Just a few weeks ago I was fishing on a charter boat in Lake Erie. The water from the wake behind the boat caused a rainbow to follow us in all the way to the dock. That fishing trip was a first in many ways and the rainbow amplified the special significance.

While I do not think that rainbow are strictly omens I do think that they can sometimes be markers to certain changes in our lives. My empirical reasoning says that when I am about to do something, or have done something, that alters the major components of my life I am more aware of my surroundings so I am more apt to see certain phenomenon, i.e. rainbows, etc.

My intuition tells me that this explanation is incomplete.

Cheers,

The pressure is enormous. A good explanation or exhile? Before I answer know that you have opened a can of worms with your directive. To be a fair and honest moderator and not just targeting people that you don't care for, you must remove the "I am Drunk" thread (and believe me I will find many others that are not even remotely spiritual by any stretch of the imagination.) I don't mind playing hardball if you want to go after this innocuous thread. Make sure that everyone in the future justifies their thread as well so as not to show bias.

I find that appreciating the beauty of nature through photography to be one few avenues that bring me closest to the divine (however you want to describe it). As synchronicity has been a major topic of late, maybe, just maybe, it portends a positive change in my life.

Now I patiently await your wise and benevolent ruling.

Dunno. As I said in another thread, there are no "rules" for synchronicity or omens. How many hours, days, years does the omen have before it hits the expiration date? What exactly is good fortune, finding a penny or hitting the MegaBucks for $12 million? Without a yardstick it is extremely hard to measure success or accuracy or any other quality.

So if I believe in the things that you do, then will I get a Gold Star and be on your list of acceptable posters and you see no bias in that?

I consider many posts here that continue repeating falsehoods and erroneous information to be much more of an affront and dangerous than attitude or presentation.

No one said you have to believe the same things as them, but not mocking us would be nice. You are free to believe whatever you like, but it isn't acceptable to blatantly put down and scoff at others because you can't and won't take a second to try and understand where they are coming from.

*Sigh* I should post a biography here so I wouldn't have to constantly repeat myself. I have done more real-world research than any 10 random shroomerites - from visiting India to Area 51 to Gulf Breeze to Sedona to haunted houses to mediums and psychics to peyote ceremonies to exorcisms to ashrams to studying yoga, fasting, mediation, vegetariansim, martial arts to...

Not merely as a dabbler, but as a participant.

My observations are flawed, but your assumptions are dead accurate, eh?

what niamhnyx said...

it's not about "falsehoods" ... every one has the right to believe something false, or true... right or wrong... the difference of these beliefs is what makes this forum so beautiful... and users that make a mock and behave like they know everything "oh so better" than the rest instead of giving constructive thoughts about the subject at hand are what destroy beautiful conversations... you figure out to which of these groups you belong

your observations are YOUR observations and don't give you the right to judge over us and put our beliefs down... they don't give you the right to behave like you do...

and if you observe that your past gives you the right to present this behaviour, then your observations are flawed indeed...

I agree with Lozt Soul.

Swami, you may have a lot of experience participating in certain things but that doesn't mean that your perceptions and interpretations are more right than any one else's. You bring your own preconcieved notions into anything you experience and that will effect the outcome. Thats a fact.

I really think this is the biggest lesson you need to learn, or maybe not, I dont' know you.... but realizing that perceptions are just individual interpretations of information no one can really understand will make you see how stupid it is to mock and judge others for what they believe.

won't take a second to try and understand where they are coming from.

This statement is a false assumption. Period. I have made many attempts to understand. When I respond DIRECTLY to this point, you go off on a tangent.

I notice that you overlook my point that lovingly presented erroneous information is more damaging than satirically presented facts.

This IS a discussion forum. As I have previously suggested, create a separate "loving support and agreement and encouragement" or "Koombayah" forum for those fragile (yet enlightened!) egos that cannot stand scrutiny.

OK, so I was wrong when i thought you'd never bothered to experience the things you were mocking. I apologize... but there is still no need to mock and put down the rest of us.

I can take just about as much scutiny as you can pull out of your ass, it's simply irritating. There's a difference between simply offering a different explanation for things and putting people down for believing what they percieve. I would have absolutely no problem if you were to come in here and say "hey guys, maybe there really is no such thing as synchronicity- studies show that the brain looks for patterns in the things around it, do you think its possible that maybe nothing is connected like you think it is? Maybe all our beliefs are based upon misperceptions our brains are coming up with to make life make sense." or however else you'd wanna word that.

There's nothing wrong with disagreeing or pointing out the weakness in someone's argument, but to blantantly demean someone who's perceptions are easily as valid as your own isn't ok.

this is how i see it, anyone is allowed to post what they want if it is relavent to s&p.  if someone wants to add enuendos to the post , they should have every right to do it.  mocking someone for their belief isnt cool, but telling them that you think their beliefs are false is ok.  remember, we all have something to learn from everything :wink:

I post a beautiful picture and am attacked, but that is OK because I am a much-maligned skeptic and ASSUMPTIONS were made as to why I posted. Yes it is OK to prejudge the Swami because of who I am (erroneously) perceived to be.

Come off it, if you were posting that to show us something pretty you wouldn't have made the pot'o'gold comment. That was obviously intended to incite something. It *is* a beautiful picture but the comment was very much full of sarcasm.

how many times have individuals given "constructive thoughts about the topic at hand" only to be answered by narrowmindedness and criticism not of the ideas, but for merely posting criticism? or to be told that they're coldhearted, inhuman bastards because they share their skeptical POV or don't blindly accept things that there is no evidence in favor of, and much evidence against?
the intolerance and closed-mindedness on the other side of things is just astounding.

I think that you, Shroomism, and myself need a meeting of the minds in the Moderator forum so we can best moderate this forum. Why don't you start a thread and lay out what's on your mind. Issues such as these can lower the quality of the forum in general when they are discussed in here.

Thanks,

In reply to:

how many times have individuals given "constructive thoughts about the topic at hand" only to be answered by narrowmindedness and criticism not of the ideas, but for merely posting criticism? or to be told that they're coldhearted, inhuman bastards because they share their skeptical POV or don't blindly accept things that there is no evidence in favor of, and much evidence against?
the intolerance and closed-mindedness on the other side of things is just astounding.



Hey, it's just the more 'enlightened' exhibiting 'tough love' to the ignorant unwashed skeptics. It's all part of peace, love and understanding (from an elitist, enlightened point of view).


--------------------
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.

When you presume to understand the motivation of my post(s) without the proper information you make yourself in the camp that you are tired of.

I was merely extending a hand of friendship and trying to lighten the mood of the thread. I'll be more careful when and if I approach you again.

The fact is that all of us are ignorant in some respect, some more than others depending on the subject material. Arguing and fighting over the words posted here accomplishs very little. If it is our intent to learn rather than merely defend our own egoistic presumptions we evidence that by listening to other side's viewpoint and offering reasons why we disagree. Other than that we look like fools. I try to steer clear of such behavior whenever I can.

Cheers,

ok?
you're in your late 40's and I'm 18. rather than assume you're some whacked pervert or that you don't know that saying I'm "cute" and asking for "a bite of my candy bar" can come off as inappropriate flirting, I assumed you were just being a bitch and implying that my comment was childish.
either way, your comment was pretty retarded.

Either assumption is/was invalid.

1. I do not know how old you are. How could I unless I looked in your profile or on the Shroomery census? I have done neither. Your posts and your knowledge of science make you appear much older than you are.

2. I saw a photo of you with a Chewy bar. Hence, the comment was about it.

Now I understand why you made the assumption but remember that assumptions are tricky things particularly when they contain a high degree of subjective interpretation.

Thank you.

Just one question Swami:

Were you being sarcastic in the original post?

let me refresh your memory:
This MUST be an omen of good fortune. Pardon me while I go search for my Pot o' Gold

sarcastic or no? tell me honestly because I don't want to make any assmptions.

In reply to:

I find that appreciating the beauty of nature through photography to be one few avenues that bring me closest to the divine (however you want to describe it). As synchronicity has been a major topic of late, maybe, just maybe, it portends a positive change in my life.




Swami, thank you for sharing your rainbow with this forum. I too enjoy nature
photography and feel the same as you have stated in the above quotation. I
really can't understand why so many people are getting bent out of shape with
your sharing.

Perhaps they were expecting sarcasm and interpreted your post with such
prefabricated expectations. I understood your "pot of gold" comment to
be genuine and not of a sarcastic nature.

It is obvious the rainbow touched you in such a way that words cannot bring
justice to the photo. The pot of gold is INSIDE you. The end of the rainbow
found a home within your soul. Now do what you can to protect the illuminated
treasure that others are attempting to criticize.

Best of luck to you in your new home.



Peace to Everyone,

Peaceful Nomad

As I have previously suggested, create a separate "loving support and agreement and encouragement" or "Koombayah" forum for those fragile (yet enlightened!) egos that cannot stand scrutiny.

*snicker*    :smile:  hehehe    I love it!!!  I wanna post here so no one hurts my lil feelings.  And yes I am being facetious.  And you are correct, My reply has absolutely no amount of S&P in it.  But they are allowed because I am not on  THE LIST .  But I think I might be after this post.  :smile:  This is not aimed specifically at anyone, more at people in general. 
  When people are insecure in their ideas and beliefs, then they assume that people are always attacking their beliefs, even when no affront is meant.  This kind of mentality runs rampant in this forum.  Swami or Schlorch could come on here and say "Hi" and someone would cry because "they meant it as an insult."  Maybe we  should  have a forum for the weakminded/hearted.  Then those of us scarred by life could test our thick skins against non-blunted weapons.  Just my 5 bucks worth.  Have a NICE DAY!!!

Holy crap......what in the hell happened to this forum? I leave for a couple days and all hell breaks loose over one of the softest threads I have seen.

Anyone who has read the numerous threads in here knows that Swami and I love to disagree but I have to say that I "got his back" on this. How sensitive and immature are you people? Yes this is a S & P forum but it is mostly a "DEBATE" forum. So long as the threads are intelligently written then they should be accepted. Even intelligent sarcasm is a wonderful tool in debate (I'm not implying you were sarcastic Swami).

Why are you here if you're not here to learn? I don't just mean learning about other belief systems but about other people and their personalities.

Swami....don't change in the least. If I lose you then no one will properly shun me and stir up good ol' fashioned "intelligent debate".

P.S. The rainbow was awesome folks so get over yourselves.

is it me or did this formum turn into a bitch and cry fest??? Hey mods, get over your illusion of having authority on this board and let people post what they like. You know as well as I do that reading words off a screen doesn't carry the same tone/meaning as hearing them. If people wanna post pics of rainbows and then try to mess with your head (and it obviously worked) let them. take it in good heart and move on to the next topic. And one more thing, if newbies wanna swear and act like total idiots, let them. It's not like they're gonna make friends here anyway. They will run their course and eventually leave cause their childish reponses won't have any effect on you. oh would you look at that, I just lost a mushroom for stating my humble opinion that someone took to heart.... :frown:

we need people with strong opinions on this board. Swami and Scrolch are among the best shroomites here. end of story. 

oh yea, i almost forgot -->  :grin:

I LUV the "I'm offended" card!  Most times when I see it I hit the person so hard in the face they drop it as I procede to pummel them into the ground with quick as lightening punches until they are a bloody pulp.

Then I stand over them and place my size 13 Army boot in the middle of their chest, peer down at them and ask in a really loud voice, "HOW DO YOU LIKE ME NOW????!!!"

Gawd, it feels good to be a Mod!  I am compiling a list of rules that will make the tax code look short and sweet.  I can't wait to post them!

I have seen this before. I also remember Swami being irritated at a friend for not appreciating a wilderness area he took the guy to. He was appalled that the individual merely wanted to get back on concrete and would not look or appreciate the surroundings.

We assemble our own perceptions to meet with our needs. Inspiration from beauty can help us do this in an aesthetically pleasing fashion. That is a powerful tool.

It is reassuring to see beautiful things in nature....

I recall the Chinese used to put people to death for the "uninformed appreciation of art"....  Rainbows are beautiful so I guess that would fall under the "safe art appreciation category"!


The other two capital punishment offenses involved the improper education of youth and incorrect usage of tea....

What does Swami stand for ?

... and being that you have bumped this not too long after decypher has resigned... another question comes to my mind if you wont be offended by it, that is..

when.. and if you decide to leave us (which would actually make me kinda sad) .. will you admit that you were simply trying to irritate and mock the people ?

and i dont mean just this one thread..

i just want to know.. will you be like the serial killers that  intentionally get caught in the end ?
will you ever plead guilty and take the credit for mind fucking all these ppl ?

or.. do you actually ,  REALLY believe what you are/were saying ?

:peace:

Wow.


I find it pretty amazing all the hostility vented at swami in this thread.


What is entirely unacceptable, however; is the fact that everyone is fuckign with swami, and yet the mods are bitching at swami for a nice post.  Throughout, they never once identify a rule he is breaking, and yet it continues.  Talk about bias and transparent power mongering.



I like how indigo feels that somehow the subjective motivations (that he divines with ESP?) of the poster of a perfectly acceptable post somehow changes the meaning of the objective content.  He further goes on to say that as a mod he'd interpret the rules and posts differently if the person had different beliefs than swami.


So two people post the same post.  Both posts are objectively fine.  But a moderator would decide that based on one person's prior statements that his post is violative of the rules.  WTF.  And the other person's post isn't?


I'm glad we seem to have moved on from this ugly period.  Thankfully, the mods we've had recently seem to be superb and fair individuals, neither power hungry  nor obviously biased.

Hopefully it stays that way.  When two people can post the same thing and one found to be breaking the rules and the other not, I don't know how much clearer evidence of bias needs to be (nor what more needs to be investigated before the mod is suspected of simply wielding power for inappropriate reasons).

Gee whiz.


(BTW, all those deleted posts are Mr. Mushrooms, right?  I've seen that before where some guy is talking about being a mod... That's Mr. Mushrooms hiding, correct?  BTW, where did MM go?  )

MM? I think he ruptured a spleen and sent his blood pressure through the roof with all the vitriol in this rating:


Yeah, you're a troll.  But worse you're a very sick man that needs help.

But narcissists usually cannot be helped.  What a pity.

Am I helping your adrenaline rush?

Oh oh Mr. Mushrooms, flame me, flame me.  I need your interaction SO bad.  :whacker:

Ah AHHHHHHHHHHH I'm coming, I'm coming......

Here's my Swami-esque prediction:

You will die friendless and loveless.



Notice the lack of projection; and you can almost feel the genuine spiritual love and oneness shining through.

You'd like to think so, wouldn't you?  And I suppose this post has nothing to do with desiring interaction with me or baiting.  Haven’t we been through this before?  If you have a problem with my rate, contact the administration.  It’s not a topic for public discussion, especially in this forum.  Otherwise, your comments seem to fall as a violation themselves, re:

4) Avoid malicious personalisms. We're all human and nobody expects a completely sterile discussion, but please try to keep to the topic, and leave the folks you're talking to personally out of things if you can't say anything nice about them.

However I did find the cause for your misbehavior.

(A)  Projection is seeing something that isn't there; observation is seeing something that is there.
(B)  I don't remember proclaiming I had any kind of love for you, nor do I believe in some hocus-pocus "oneness."
(C)  How, exactly, is my rate of you a philosophical, sociological or psychological topic?

Nice to know I was "gone but not forgotten."

:kiss:

If you have a beef with me, feel free to leave it in a rate.  And leave the malicious sniping behind my back to private messages.

Thanks.
