    I have a homosexual friend in the UK who told me that he only fucks heterosexuals.

    Yes, because they rarely complain about this:

    I dunno how difficult it is to see from someone else's perspective. We just need to try. We have this really certain impression of ourselves, our individuality, and our humanity, but really it is a fragile and precarious illusion.
    There was a cool video I watched but I can't seem to find it now.

    OH, BTW, watching some videos related to the above posts, I have just now discovered that James Randy publicly came out as gay at age 81!

    Never too late! Go Randy!

    I wonder if anyone has ever "came in". You know after 20 years they go "no it is not my thing, I am actually straight".

    I know two women who did such thing. One of them was 26 when she did it, the other was 35.
    Though in both cases it was because they fell in love with a man and established a long term relationship with him.
    None of them said something along the lines of "being a lesbian was not my thing, I am straight".
    It was more like: "O.K... I want to be with this person now, I didn't expect such thing, it's weird, but that's how I feel now".

    Though going back to the original subject of the thread, I do not really see a strong link between sexual orientation and alchemy.

    I would just like to apologize for my previous behaviour. Raised in a very bigoted country; with a delusional christian perspective; being manipulated into a 'this is how it is' reality, has lead me to say things and make claims against certain people's way of Life.

    I just want to say Andro that after studying a decent portion of your works on this site, I would have to say that I don't know anyone who has taught me more about life, myself, and the universe at large.

    My comments about homosexuality damaging spiritual progress is obviously completely flawed. Im very sorry for the offensive things I said and I hope you forgive my naive behaviour.

    Before I found this website I walked around with a sense of intellectual superiority over others. I could smash anyone in a debate; considered myself the smartest person I knew, and felt sorry for everyone else and tried my hardest to impress as much knowlege on others as I could.

    Now I realise "You know nothing John Snow" (my wife thinks I look like him lol)

    I have learnt more from you Andro about spirituality than anyone I've ever had the pleasure of encountering, all the while basically being a smart ass in return.

    Im sorry. And part of humility is to give credit where credit is due, so this is not an ass kissing; its just what I feel is deserved. Thank you for all you've done for me. You and Dev single handedly ripped me out of the Mormon brainwashing; which I can see very clearly now is another form of Demiurge.

    If I do find God it will be because of the good people of Alchemyforums.com; Franz Bardon; and thats about it since everything else wants to see me in the mud. I love you guys.

    If you ever need anything....

    I know how you feel regarding brainwashing. And just when I think I have washed my brain clean... I see even more stains... that is how it is for me. LOL.

    The great thing with new perspectives is that it is very liberating. Enjoy and love...

    And to keep with the thread, yes Vader is gay..



    ...and if you think about it "his" story arc in Star Wars is - in spiritual terms - the perfect metaphor for the alchemical transmutation, IMO (child, rebel, downward spiral, evil, redemption and ascension).
