Projection / An unusual recurring experience
« on: February 19, 2006, 12:20:08 AM »
Long-time-no-post. I need to get back to contributing here more, but real life is sucking the time away.

Anyway, I've been having some strange OBE-ish sensations. I know astral projection, I know trance, I know awareness bridging, and I know when I'm dreaming. This is none of these, and I'm trying to figure it out.

What happens is, there's an intense 'fuzz' throughout my body (It's sort of an audible static roar), I lose feeling and movement all over, and if I focus in a direction, I feel my body move that way and the 'fuzz' intensifies. If I focus on the sensation, any sound becomes unbearably loud; I keep a fan on in my room to give a bit of white noise, and this becomes almost a shriek. I get a terrifying feeling that if I continue focusing on it, it'll continue getting louder until I short out, even though I know that's not possible. It took a while to get over my fear of the basic rush, and I wonder if I should look at this more closely as well.

This happens in place of astral projection, sometimes, but more often when I'm near to sleep.

The strangest thing is that if I force my eyes open, I still feel myself move in a direction, but my vision remains the same. If I stop concentrating on a direction, I sort of meld back to where my body is. I've pretty much chalked it up to a neat pre-sleep hallucination, but who knows? Maybe someone here knows what this is?

I'd send Kakkarot a moose with a camera on its head. The camera would be filled with gold. Just because.

Questions & Suggestions / Re: Read this

A Cafepress site would be good. *nods* I've bought from them using my own design, and my mom has her own site. (It has way too many repeats, but she has fun with it. :)) I'm donating the $25 I have left direct (that way the site gets all of it), but I'd definately buy a shirt as well.

Like Creature said, it's free. There's really no reason -not- to put up a few designs, even if you set it at the minimum price with no profit.

Edit: Damn you, TYA, distorting my MIND! *peers*

Learn that you can learn. Learn things which help you learn (your language and the languages it's based on are excellent places to focus on). Then find out for yourself if it's important for you to learn, because no one can do this for you.

Other / Re: Seeing in complete Darkness and Extremely low light conditions

I do this too. When you're in a specific state and there aren't any visual distractions (I usually blindfold myself), the effect becomes much stronger. The biggest problem is that it's extremely hard if not impossible to see surface details and small objects that are against others. I haven't tried something like dropping something and seeing which way it lands, but that's a good idea. Assuming it isn't caused by input from other normal senses, which would be sort of neat in itself, my best guess is that it's either memory or remote viewing.

The Cafeteria / Spore

Might not be an immediately exciting or profound thread, but I am literally drooling, this game sounds so awesome. Ignore if you wish. :smilie:

A brief description: http://www.gamespot.com/news/2005/03/11/news_6120274.html

More info (screens, an interview, etc., plus an active forum) http://www.gamingsteve.com/archives/spore/index.php

Will Wright's speech, including a great demonstration of the game. http://www.pqhp.com/cmp/gdctv/ (scroll down to "Will Wright discusses his new game creation called "Spore"")

There isn't much info out there, but I'm definately watching this one closely. I've already sketched out a few creatures I'd like to make. :biggrin:

I object to killing without immediate reason, which is giving in to fear based upon assumptions. This includes almost every kind of war. That doesn't mean I object to death. Everything dies, and even if you want to assume that life is the most precious thing in the universe, a function of continuing life is death. To avoid death simply because you don't think it's good is ignoring the reality of life.

I believe that we should maintain our animal bodies as best we can through their natural processes (eating, sleeping, etc.) until such a time comes that we can remove them through technology. It isn't that these things are bad, it's that they invariably cause fear if we can't obtain them, and if we can, there's no reason not to eliminate them. We must be forced to confront our single core fear directly, and it's difficult to do that if there are many reasons it can throw at you to justify its control of your actions.

I'm decent with Wings3d. Mind you, not decent enough to make a character model which could be animated, but... I could make all sorts of furniture and giant mallets 'n stuff -very- quickly, and then texture them poorly! Hurrah! :D

Arena? Is this some sort of server-engine thing for custom games? :confused:

Maybe I dislike people using gay as an insult because I'm bi? Maybe if people started calling everyone 'bi', I'd be okay with it? Or maybe it's their way of fighting it while still trying to not look like a jackass? Regardless, I still think it's disgusting - if you don't care about people being gay, don't act like you hate them. It's not cute.

I went to a Waldorf elementry school, although unlike most out there it was public. I'd definately vouch that it didn't make me stupid. ;)

I like his emphasis on not falling into preconceptions based on language. Too many people do that. It bugs me. I also like his architecture. And social philosophies always feel kind of hazy to me, but anthroposophy seems like a decent way to live.

There really isn't much to object to, as far as I can see, although the not-reading-till-6 thing did surprise me. *shrugs*

The Seatbelts. <3 And perhaps KiloWatts, although he does electronic stuff so you couldn't really call him a 'band'.
