  1. I'm still wondering if John is the cause or the effect. Part of me thinks it's like a self fulfilling prophecy. I'm patiently waiting to see how this all pans out.
  2. The problem is not materials or invention. Its the energy required
  3. I'm not sure if you took offense to that or what, but you quoted me and then rambled off about yourself, boasting, then started talking about stupid people... which has nothing to do with the left/right, as both sides have idiots taking up the cause.
  4. So the only thing I have for now, is that the psychological profiling could also be used to say that the far right also display childish behaviours such as greed, violence, and tribalism.
  5. It depends on your view of how timelines work.
  6. It starts with education. We are not giving ourselves the tools to understand these complex issues, and risk being the next civilisation to crumble under its own weight.
  7. Side note; Do Jojoba's Witnesses claim to accept and use any Bible version in the states? Your comment reminded me that this was about the state of America... (<is that a pun?) America is in a hard place. There are many problems. But your fighters! You'll stand tall, proud of your convictions and push back against those intent on corroding your basic rights. My country could do with some fighting spirit. Disclaimer: I do not condone violence unless to defend. I am referring to emotional or spiritual fighting I.e. debate. Put the safety on. Our people should talk.
  8. I am an atheist. However, I will agree that the ten commandments are a solid moral foundation for anyone to use for guidance. How do you feel about religious leaders that maintain the idea that homosexuality is wrong, or that use their position to divide people rather than accepting and embracing differences?
  9. Do real Christians follow the Bible to the word? Or Catholics? Religion again is not cut and dry. It's how we interpret the stories. These topics are basically tripping up our culture and distracting us from the real problems. We are divided, and we could fall. I may have jumped the gun on my community comment. Long day, plus reading percentages instead of true numbers equals an apology from me. Personally I believe that that a person's spirituality, sexuality and heritage have no bearing on the morality of a person, and to define larges groups of people with sweeping labels does us all a disfavour. I couldn't agree more. The only thing I might add though is that sometimes it comes down to how informed a person is. If I hadn't gained the experience that I have, my view would not be the same. Travel and visiting other cultures dispels the cultural hangups you gain from your own.
  10. This poll is very telling of the community here. I couldn't agree with any of your statements. The wording you used doesn't take into account any of the complexities of the topics you mentioned. Racism is real even if you don't participate. Gender inequality isn't a black and white kinda deal. Gender and sexuality are hard topics to understand. And as for your Muslim comments... yes there are cultural differences that may seem hard to overcome, but it simply cannot be true that all Muslim people are morally bad. How about looking for the similarities we have with each other, i.e. how our governments are slowly leading us to ruin.
  11. Your acting like its big news. We already knew most of the big conflicts since WWII have been directly caused by the U.S. governments poor judgement and inability to keep its agenda within its own borders. The United States polices the world like it polices it own people. With prejudice. With ignorant belief. And with violence. We don't need RV to see these truths.
  12. So it's a bit of both for me. It's a great freedom to realise that nearly everything in modern life is a human construct, and therefore can be made more or less important by perspective alone. However, being in society means that it's not just my own views that I have to take into account. This is the sobering part. Real change in my existence relies on my ability to navigate the social landscape, and things like income, housing or living costs won't change just because I want them to.
  13. We predict the future all the time. Whenever we are presented with a challenge we know the impossibilities and most often create plans that will complete the task to a high degree of accuracy. We take it for granted, but problem solving is not easy.
  14. There's plenty of phenomena that have been dismissed as fantasy, but what separates remote viewing from lucid dreaming, or imagination. How would you yourself know, that what you experienced wasn't some mad daydream. Can different results arise from different techniques?
  15. The Brain and nervous system could be considered a biological computer of sorts, capable of complex forward predictions about circumstances and outcomes, before it interacts with its environment. Discuss.
  16. John, having spent some time apart, is there anything you would like to discuss with us now, that you may have been hesitant to discuss last time.
  17. I have had experiences like this. Dreams of insignificant events that later come true, knowing that an outcome was certain before the event occurs, almost to the the point of prophetic wisdom. These are never within my control, and never give me any direction in life. Perhaps the mind is a better predictive system than we give it credit, or perhaps reality has hidden qualities that we're not aware of yet. Time will tell.

    There's so much going on you can just post about random stuff and end up true to a degree. It's the details that matter.
  19. As I grow, I'm finding these kinds of conversation very important. I have dabbled with various spiritual ideas. Most religions I find quite distasteful. Buddhism for me is not in this category (for lack of an iconic god figure). The experiences that you describe here do strike a chord with me, and I find that long held ideas or beliefs have a certain sway upon the order of things. Influence on others factors in, but to me, even thoughts and dreams that you keep secret or don't discuss openly can have a real impact on your path. Trying to keep an open mind while living in this time, seeing the opportunities for a better and more wholesome experience. Too many only see and imagine what there is, and not the potential.
  20. Well here in England, we have social health care for all, and many people in power have been slowly privatising areas of our NHS. This has pushed the cost higher and higher, and soon, we may not have it any more. It startles me that we want to be a united civilisation, yet can't put the well being of our population at the front of all we do. Education is another area. If people are not sound of mind and body, then they are not productive to society. Capitalism truly sucks as a social model.
  21. Can anybody enhance the first picture so we can read the detail in the background, the posters and shelves for instance.
  22. He claims his math model can do these things with research, the coil is a mechanism for manipulating the resulting magnetic fields. My quest for knowledge is not helped when you rush a reply and muddle his varied claims. I am very interested in the coil and any electrical engineer's with real knowledge, I would love your input.
