...we\'re all deluded, fakers/roleplayers, and liars.
Okay, that statement might seem a little harsh, but I\'m just saying it from looking out at the OEC (OEC = Online Energy Community). Almost everyone that\'s active is in their teens (with the exception of a few), and those that have been around for a while tend to lose interest in practice and/or leave. Real life seems to always catch up with people as soon as they\'re done highschool (again, with the exception of a few).
We attempt to include scientific theories on how this stuff works, but we really have no clue. At best, many of our attempts can be called pseudoscience.
Everyone and their sister writes articles (how many psiball how-to\'s have you seen out there?), or has a theory on how x works. All the same topics, no matter where you look pop up.
\"Did I create a psiball?\"
\"Was this ?\"
\"PK Help -- I can\'t move the psiwheel!\"
\"I think this is how \"
\"Random what if?\"
I\'m pretty disappointed with the quality of forum discussions, overall. And then you get the bizarre posts like:
\"If we all concentrated really hard, do you think we could make the moon pop out of existence?\"
-- Okay, I haven\'t seen this one, but posts like this are out there. You know what I mean, a question that\'s so bizarre and weird that it somehow obtains pages of responses. (I particularly remember a post about making a \"The Matrix\"-like virtual world for psychics to connect to through a giant construct over on psionline)
And then there\'s real time chat on IRC, which you\'d think would allow us to be more productive...
No. Noone practices on IRC anymore, people just seem to hang out and talk about random stuff -- which I\'m all for, but why is there no practice? It seems to me that clan communities are actually more efficient then we are when it comes to video games -- they actually do what their community is there for, you know, play video games.
Alright, so I don\'t actually think we\'re all deluded, fakers/roleplayers, or liars. I\'m just saddened by the state of our community and had to have a small rant somewhere. I\'m actually surprised I hit the \"submit\" button.
I guess what I\'m really posting about is...what do you guys think about our psionic community these days?
By the way, excuse the quality of this post please. It\'s 2:15 in the morning...and I\'m off to bed.
