  1. I mean, are there that many middle schoolers here? Maybe you can get away with it describing females under 18 (if you of course are also), but if you are older than that the proper term is "women". You're welcome.
  2. Wait, this isn't the Elton bio film?
  3. Are they anything like the Ministry of Silly Walks?
  4. WI they came in corrupted? [FTR I pity the poor fool]
  5. Do you have anything to back up the above speculations?
  6. What If "developing" yourself arises organically, without any effort required, at all? WI it thus doesn't require anything more than just letting go of attachments to things that ultimately never mattered/that you never actually cared about to begin with? WI It [Stage X] is your natural State, and you just Flow right towards it? In which case you aren't "developing" anything at all, just becoming your most Essential Self? Seems like the most natural thing in the world, does it not? "The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man." ---George Bernard Shaw
  7. LOL. Wilber had the basic 3 tiers/~9 levels framework in place by the late 70's. Beck ripped KW off, not the other way around; very rich and ironic for him to claim the opposite. Proof that apes can try to read philosophy, but typically can't understand it.
  8. You mean in addition to all of the crap that's come down the pike since just the first of the year? I don't think I can handle any more Truth.
  9. Do we really need THREE threads on the same topic in one week?
  10. I had a friend who underwent this kind of change--much more radical than what has been described so far. When I met him he was an environmental activist, part of a campus group who fought the administration's attempts to expand the campus into some sensitive areas [the entire campus is built on wooded marshland]. I recall reading a book on Christianity once [note: I am basically a hybrid pagan/Taoist/Buddhist, but was just trying to expand my horizons a bit]. He took one look at it, then looked at me like I was utterly crazy. But something happened when I left town for graduate school. As he tells it, he got into a wreck [him driving] which killed his girlfriend. His grief & guilt almost got him to pull the trigger on the firearm he had, but then he says she came into his mind in the form of a bright white light and got him to not do the deed, telling him that it wasn't his time yet. When I came back to town about a year later, he had gone full right wing fundie, spouting Dominionist rhetoric and listening to Limbaugh and Hannity the entire time. That of course would be going not one but two levels down [Green to Blue] I suppose he was a closet Blue the entire time, not an authentic Green, but damn this remains deeply puzzling to me. Esp. since I had a similar experience (also ostensibly involving an old girlfriend yes), but whose effect on me was 180 degrees removed from his.
  11. It may not be you. It is quite likely in these communities (having hung out in one which was pretty materialistic and atheistic) have endured a lot of JAQing off concern trolls (said forum had a regular parade of such coming and going), and when you sound just like one they will jump your behind, even if you are sincere. We also do have, as you intimated, the cemented mindsets in question from the regulars that you dealt with there. I say let them find out for themselves.
  12. I have. Risking drifting into New Age mumbo jumbo, it apparently was what they call a soul exchange. One soul left, another entered (tho in this specific case I have strong evidence that they coexisted for a number of years). Original personality markers became much more extreme and dysfunctional (where there was once insecure shyness, we now have paranoid secretiveness, for example).
  13. But in practical 3D terms it becomes very hard to find someone else. Someone else on your own wavelength, who has fully owned her own path, and who can thus handle the powerful energies which are typically engendered. I've only had one woman who made it to that point, and said energies as she told me herself started to threaten to upend her entire world and tear her psyche apart. Most sense the danger and end up bailing on me long before then. But that's ok, I now make love to the entire universe, in a sense.
