I won't bore anyone with a lengthy explanation of why this place is so important to me. But I do remember a day when people were constantly posting, learning, sharing experiences, and establishing a kind of camaraderie that was so characteristic of old forums from the late 90s and early 2000s (except on a much larger scale here).

For my part, I have rededicated myself to studying the Occult and learning the ways in which I can apply it to the world. I'd like to start contributing more to the Magic section again, and perhaps the Body Energy section as well. I haven't been very active on here (I lurk every now and then but that's it), but I'd like to change that.

I saw this was in the cafeteria so I thought you were going to go on about building a wall to keep the Psipoggers out >_>

But yeah, if you want to discuss things, then let's start simply: What kinds of new experiences have you gained in the past however-long since you last felt you were an active poster? :)

Mastery does not occur when you've performed a feat once or twice. Instead, it comes after years of training, when you realize that you no longer notice when you're performing a feat which used to require so much effort. Even walking takes years of training for a human: why not everything else?

What do you mean by "keeping Psipoggers out"? I have yet to see anyone from Psipog.net (if thats what you are talking about) here with confirmation they are from there. Also were/are they doing something bad to Veritas? Just curious...

If slogans by Donald Trump become the catalyst to revive activity on this forum... I honestly don't know how to feel about that.

Exactly, Vivi.

Xenophon: Waaay back when, when PsiPog was apparently popular, there were quite a few people who went back and forth between here and there. There were some people who thought ill of them, and some of their people thought ill of us, but there was at most a surface level tension between us. So yeah, as Merlin said, just a joke :)
