No not at all but pointing out the possibility of it. It would be a great weapon and would be certain that its all been tried before. There a bit of info around the net about military use of mind control and a lot of research done before so its really an old idea. It could be easily done with implants and this has been already experimented with so again old news.

They would have no idea if the ideas were implanted into a mind at the SC level. What do you think drives terrorists now, rational thought. 40 virgins - really, one experienced loving willing partner is a much better option but that's not in their wish list

I don't know if the mind reading through the dreams is an old idea or not, however I think the government would attempt to do something like that, just because they have invaded our privacy in the real world numerous times before (I really believe they look at me in the shower).


its all been tried before and will be again no doubt as it interests a lot of people for a lot of reasons.
In the shower, not much that I can say about that - they either do or dont and I can know. Hope not and hope you find a way to change your view of this and it would not put you in a good space.


There is love in many forms, not for you that is fine but for others yes. On their own terms and in ways they understand. I will say the the first love should be of yourself and with that acceptance then the world is easy

They used to have conscripts high on hashish and then put the girls around them. They were in a constant state of euphoria and a part dream world and thought that heaven and virgins would be the same and so went out and did their deeds with some pre understanding of what they thought would be in store for them.


Your version of love is always aimed at the physical? theres a lot more than that I hope

Water molecules are not wet but the illusion of wetness is well conveyed by the lack of viscosity as one of water's properties. Wetness is very real nonetheless. When we say something is wet, we feel that something to be wet. It is real to us. An illusion is not something that doesn't exist, it is something which isn't really what it seems. Like the self, for instance. I would contend that it is an impressive illusion, but real as a sense in its own right.

Love is no different, nesgirl. It is real. It does exist. There are many types and definitions. But it is felt. Even if at the roots it is just the product of electrochemical activity in living brains, the conscious experience of the loving feeling cannot be denied and is no less worthy for its nature.

Summerlander wrote:Yeah, but, Snaggle, you also told me Hitler was an atheist ("Religion & Politics: Iraqi Crisis"). Anyway, yes, there is a difference between lucid dreaming and astral projection. In the latter, the individual doesn't know he's dreaming. :-D

Summerland this is your characteristic accuracy. I stated that Nazism and Marxism were examples of secular ideologies every bit as bad as any religion had ever been. You countered this by claiming that Marxism was not Atheistic because some Soviets lit candles to Stalin and that Hitler was really a devout Catholic :lol:

Was Hitler even a Christian? My opinion is absolutely not!

Reasons:
1. He was a member of the Thule society before he ever joined the National Socialists. No Christian can be a member of a secret occult society.

2. He was a Marxist before he was a National Socialist, sort of implying he was an Atheist - he was filmed with them, of course he was more likely an agent of German Intelligence - thus explaining both why he was with both groups (to use Churchill's term he was a "guttersnipe" who had infiltrated both groups for German Intelligence. It also explains the slap on the wrist sentence after the Beerhall Putsch conviction for treason and why a convicted traitor was allowed to write an awful political book while in prison.

3. Hitler was treacherous and a two-faced hypocrite - one can't believe anything he says, as he normally sucked up to his enemies and became their friends to back stab them. I doubt that you've actually read Mein Kampf, so I'll tell you something he said in it. he stated that he was against the past persecutions of the Jews and wanted to avoid any repetitions of them :lol: Excursus: in fairness to him he died try to get the Brits to let his Jews into Palestine and did offer to trade all the Jews for 10,000 trucks to be used only on the Eastern front to FDR and was refused by both the Limeys and the Yanks before he proceeded with the final Solution.

It took you a while to come up with this babble and misrepresentation as a reply to my e cellent points, Snaggle. No-one has ever established a political system in the name of atheism. It makes no sense and it is plain to see why. (Already spelled it out for you countless times.) As for communism as a method to sustain the world? Only Trotsky was worthy of having properly interpreted the Marxism (which was originally open to revision and not much of a doctrine). Already started a new topic sbout Trotskyism. Read! :-D

i personally think astral projection is just lucid dreaming. ive had many lucid dreams using the OBE exit. the first time i did it i thought it was astral projection and since i believed it was at first it was just like everyone described it. it was dark, i could see my body still sleeping, i could walk through walls, but after awhile it just turned into a regular lucid dream. i'm open to believe anything though, and i'm very interested on the subject.

I agree, degausser44. I find it very interesting, but I also think that real discussion about the spiritual metaphysics of astral projection is instantaneously vaporized with a single swipe of Newton's flaming laser sword.
Well said.
