    AF Code of Conduct: An Attempt to Refine, Clarify & Rectify

    Note: This is a Spin-Off Topic, relocated from HERE.
    --------------------------------------------------------------

    The various "claims" in and of themselves are not the issue here.

    What's "problematic" is not the sharing of your own Alchemical journey (which I'd like to believe you're doing in an honest manner, at least from your POV), but the incessant need and compulsion to pontificate and to jump in on various threads and "correct" other people and "grade their performance" based on aforementioned "claims". We all have our own journeys.

    For example, posting and using in debates things such as:

    is not the most constructive M.O. to put it mildly. It's one of the most common Logical Fallacies: Appeal to Authority. Such fallacies are ultimately fatally toxic to any debate or exchange, online or IRL.

    Please avoid this as best you can, for more harmonious and coherent exchanges in the future.

    Only after dropping the needless and unsolicited "corrections", pontifications and general grandstanding, we may all be able to realize we likely have more in common than not.

    Thank you.

    I'm ordering all of you to back the **** off @Black.

    Stop ganging up on him

    hahaha im kidding im not mad hehehe but yeah, why are you all huddling up around him?

    You think you are more right because you have the numbers? You want to know the ratio between an occultist and the masses that say occult is superstitious hocus pocus and not real? We must assume the masses are more wise than the scientist if we are to consider these numbers!

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Remember what I said in one of my other posts when responding to @Seth-Ra?

    If you don't like what someone is saying/asserting you can turn a blind eye and ignore it!

    @Seth-Ra argued that myself and @Black could do the same. However, recognize the spirit that is driving both of us which may or may not be the same. Are we being unfriendly? Disrespectful? Maybe some of us are in the mood to debate, argue, challenge others but in good spirits!!!! please let us love each other please

    No one is "ganging up" on anyone. We are having discussions with him. Some are questioning and critiquing his claims. I specifically am rebutting his authoritarianism that he's spread all over the forum like a crusader on a rampage over the last few months (in a civil manner, on both our parts, as far as I can tell.)

    The above is nonsensical.
    There is not a mob-rule or numbers game at play here. Andro and I, for example, have many disagreements, and have over the years, but are friends and agree on much of the Arcanum itself, despite difference of lenses through which we view it or paths we tread to approach it. If anything, such is my point to Black; there is more than one way to reach the Stone.
    Likewise, the views of the ignorant masses, who believe MSM and spend their days chasing soap operas and gossip, are of worthless weight. Besides, even in your analogy, you're wrong. Only is the relatively recent West full of atheists in any large numbers. The rest of the world, and that of humanity throughout the ages, has believed in the supernatural and the role of priests/occultists/magi/alchemists.

    If you read what I last said in my above post to Black, I am not at all trying to fight with him, but we are in a discussion and banter on the nature of things. By all means, turn the blind eye if you want. We clearly are not, and since you post as well, neither are you.
    So if you're not gonna swallow your own medicine - why expect us to?
    Discussion and/or debate is my medicine, so let's get to it.

    Have you anything constructive to offer to the discussion beyond distraction and calls to silence it?

    My dear friend Andro has said more without a word than I should dare to refute with them.
    I agree with the art, and will resume silence.

    Thank you for these most special quotes tAlchemist, it is music to my soul that some members actually go to the trouble of reading Alchemic texts.

    On the other hand I am appalled at the extremely high level of Alchemic illiteracy on this forum.

    The meaning of illiteracy = lack of knowledge in a particular subject; ignorance.

    One of the forums long term members commented to me recently that he felt a number of the members "just wanted it all handed to them on a plate".

    He may well be correct.
    There's nothing really alchemical about this forum to be honest, a whole lot of seekers but not many I can see who are necessarily ''worthy'' and I've expressed my opinion on what unworthiness means, which is people who have as you say ''alchemic illiteracy'' which is why I was seeking an in-depth and open discussion with you where all can see. If we understand the philosophy then our discussion should harmonize with each other.

    Chasm369, Pneumatician, Schmuldvich are banned, and Kriztian, you and myself seem to be the only ones I can recognize to be the ones left that can show congruent alchemical understanding. I'm sure others are around but they seem silent. I think Andro understands some of the philosophy but I can't quite tell if he's able to translate the philosophy into the authentic practical lab work and not the random mish mashing that some members are so very much into.

    You mentioned music to your soul, it's music to my soul when you talk about alchemy. I read a lot of your posts and appreciate them.

    Isn't it also interesting that the people claimed to be skilled in alchemy (according to you) are also unable to follow simple "rules & guidelines"? Seems to me Master Alchemists are also illiterate.

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

    I don't think @Black's Ego is at play and mine is definitely not! Being open and sharing our truths seems to trigger you right now Awani. You tell us to check our Egos because we personally don't find any congruence with what other members are doing and their connections to the texts? It seems presumptuous.

    Right. ''Seems''. Not everything is what it seems. Is the idea totally lost on you that some people just don't care to follow your rules and guidelines any longer rather than being unable to do so? I think one of the members I listed said himself that he read the rules and decided he didn't want to follow them. Where is the illiteracy? lol
