    "They" are weak and fragile and I pity them. On the "big" stage they will eventually need our compassion like toddlers who take each others toys and have tantrums... these are the "they".

    This is easy IMO. If someones does not want to help, save or provide compassion to humanity/humans then why should you do any of that to yourself?

    To be fair your past is the reason you are where you are now. Without suffering there cannot be any healing, nor can you heal anyone else. Everyone will suffer eventually, and suffering is the great medicine as it provides perspectives. Terence McKenna once said "no one goes through life without suffering tragedy" and I believe that... and if you manage to avoid tragedy in your life - on the bigger stage/perspective - it will make you poor in spirit.

    Donít let the delusion of reality confuse you regarding the reality of the illusion.

    This is not a hypothetical or philosophical question. Someday you may get this far, and truly be asked this question.

    The answer is simple, although it's a long twisting journey to get there. It's a four letter word. You won't find it in your left brain.

    Try looking into the eyes of your children.

    Who would help you ?. Someone has before. You are humanity, help yourself.

    The thing about you Andro, is that you're the only person I have ever felt envy for. I had never even know the feeling until I met you actually. You're the person, who's attributes I aspire to have (at least some of them).... no body else. Never in my whole life....

    And even from my lowly status, i would take that as a serious compliment.

    There's nothing to be envious about. Besides, envy is a pretty useless emotion, come to think of it... Unless it inspires you in some way...

    I certainly don't regard you as being of a "lowly status". I don't think you should regard yourself as such either. We all have our issues

    I'll reply to your PM some time during the weekend.

    I agree with this.

    Aww you guys are sweet...

    Im not so much down on myself, im just very worried about what the future holds for humanity and here in Australia i think its not going to be long until we have the 'chipping' begin. The elites are getting restless and laws are getting passed what seems like every other day and i hear whispers of the government taking back ownership of every ones land properties under the illusion that they are 'stopping foreign ownership' And i do feel like i need to man up a bit, get in better health and shape physically and spiritually and do what I can to prepare for the worst.

    Im not going full hog with any cazy Alchemy anymore. Im back to the bare bones, deliquescing salts in the night air repeatedly and observing the changes. That's it.

    In fact im feeling kind of good with my achievements of late, i went from having absolutely zero 3D modelling experience to creating some very awesome looking stuff, and ive just made a cave filled with crystals and glowing mushrooms, lava, waterfall and fern that could easily be put in a game scene, im pretty proud of it really, surprised myself. All round the Uni is going well, struggling bit with maths due to the corona thing taking me away from campus but ill still get a reasonable grade. Sitting on A's for everything esle which is good. Ive been working my ass of for a change.
