Re: They Sold Their Soul To Rock And Roll: Aleister Crowley
i can't believe i'm hearing fact-checking deprecated here.
Who cares. It's an argument about Aleister Crowley. If fact checking is what's irking you then why not save the energy for people who don't fact check the big things that actually matter. Let's get some perspective here. Aleister Crowley isn't important. Not when big things are happening in this world. I've developed a bit of a love/hate relationship with message boards for the exact sort of thing that's going on in this thread, people arguing round and round and round and getting pissy with each other over things that don't matter, and it's why I've curtailed my posting time and no longer post the way I used to. I've talked about this in an email with somebody from NR, and they were in agreement with me that message boards encourage a dream state of mind. People lose themselves and go off into this other realm via the link with their minds. I don't understand the logistics of it, maybe it's the astral, I don't know, but people lose themselves. They forget who they are, and they lose perspective on things and what really and truly matters and what's worth putting our energy into. They're off someplace else, clacking away at their computers, irritated, fighting. I've gotten sucked into it too, that's how I know what it's like, and it's also why I don't post much anymore. It's creepy when you think about it. It also seems no coincidence that threads that are about "negative" people seem to develop into arguments and people getting pissy, like the Virginia Tech shooter, or Aleister Crowley, to cite two examples. It's like the icky energy of the person is drawn into the thread itself, and infiltrates, steering the direction things are going to go.
Anyway, not trying to personally attack anybody here, these are just the thoughts I'm having as I've looked over this thread, and I felt maybe it could benefit somebody to put this perspective out there. If you truly don't see any problem with what's happening here though then carry on, don't mind me. It's just my perspective and two cents. Stepping aside now.....
