I recently went back to Goro's site to see what was new. I read his latest port and I must say I really dont get it any longer.
I felt bad - like maybe I am just too out of touch, but he had this article: http://www.goroadachi.com/etemenanki/ge … lation.htm
I really didnt see the significance? Can any of you help me here - this really looked like randoms connecting with an occasional peice of continuity. I just dont see how this is significant.
I had read Goro for some time, and really felt like all his connections were after the fact, as opposed to seeing anything groundbreaking. I wish this werent the case though....
It's not just you...I realized recently that I don't even go to the Goro site anymore, versus how I used to go there on a regular basis and had all his major articles and good blog entries printed out in a 3 ring binder. I realized I can't follow along anymore or keep up. At first I thought maybe I was just dumb, or lazy or something, maybe I wasn't trying hard enough. But when I looked closer I realized it's all a bit convoluted. Not everybody will agree with me - and I don't offer my opinion up as a point of debate - but as a long time Goro reader I can say with certainty that there is a big difference in his material now, versus even a year ago. Some of the changes imo are good - he's got more graphics capabilities now, more tools at his disposal to seek out patterns in the chaos and "stuff lining up." But at the same time something is missing. There’s all these charts and graphs, but not enough substance filling it in or something. I look at the Stargate 2012 3-part article and the Lucifer Timecode piece, and there was so much meaty information to be found in those pieces, he really packed it all in there, and it was the kind of stuff that kept making you have to sit back in your chair and go "whoa.......!" It was just that good. Now, I'm not seeing that sort of thing on there anymore. The other possibility might have to do with the fact that he's now funneling a lot of his good information and discoveries over into his "Super Torch Ritual Underground (STRUG)" section........which is a paid subscription-only section. I signed up and paid the $13 when STRUG first started, and considered my $13 to be a contribution to Goro, and wasn't worried whether STRUG was going to be worthwhile or not. I've gotten enough good stuff out of Goro's site since 2002 that the donation was worth it either way, imo. The subscription lasts for 3 months, but I didn't get around to renewing it. So maybe that's where all the meaty information is now. I know that Goro's material was blatantly being stolen by somebody and passed off as their own, which necessitated having to start a paid subscription section in order for readers to get the best information. So who knows.
And as an aside, I can't help but mentioning how every time I see the title
"Damage Plan 2:
Hidden Path of Thor's Hammer"
...I just crack up. When I read that I always imagine the voice of that dude who narrates all the movie trailers. You guys know who I'm talking about, I'm sure! I read it in my mind in a deep, overly dramatic voice. That title just takes itself WAY too seriously!
On a side note, it's funny to note that I also no longer visit the Ellie Crystal site or keep up with the Stuart Wilde site either, and those were also sites I'd always check out regularly. Stuie stopped writing stuff for the longest time anyway, which partially explains it. But his last A-list write up that went out......I didn't understand it at all. I couldn't even finish reading it. ! And I'm someone who has his writings printed out in a binder too, and own four of his books. So who knows, maybe it's me, or maybe it's not. Then with regards to Ellie Crystal, her blog seems to have run out of steam, and even she's admitted that all the stuff she used to write about is tired now, that it's time to move forward. Like how much can you keep writing about the same metaphysical stuff, 365 days a year, year in and year out, you know?
So it is a little weird when one starts dropping all their favorite websites one by one. !
