Finished two articles. I also launched another site at https://cottagewitch.neocities.org/.
I respect and agree with a number of the points you've made, although I cannot see any robotic or AI animal, no matter how complicated, ever replacing real animals for me. Cats are divine, and divinity is not something that some scientist or programmer can conjure in a laboratory. Nonetheless, many people use fictional worlds and daydreaming to escape from the pains of reality and to create that which they cannot
find in the real world, and AI and robotic companions would be a more complicated and vivid version of that same mechanism. On another note, I just want to say that I adore all of these different gorgeous and creative designs you make for your various pages!
Understandable! Like I said, robots will be supplements for most people, not replacements. :) I used to believe that magic and gods and whatnot are simply unexplained science, but science is a highly empirical system that relies heavily on the five senses and expects results that can be repeated. I don't think recreating divinity in a lab within such a limited framework is possible, either.
Beautifully designed page, and a very riveting read. I was surprised by how many of the things you said that I relate to. As a Kemetic, I also don't believe in a divine plan or there being one entity in charge, because there are too many Gods with their own agendas, on top of spirits and other lesser entities. I've had a number of blatant paranormal experiences myself, and have been undeniably helped by Bast many
times. I think people don't see paranormal events because most of them shut their minds off to anything outside of their comfort zone to the point where they can't see what's under their own nose. There was an interesting study done that showed that non-autistic children, for example, will believe authority figures when they contradict things that they saw with their own eyes!
I've had many of my own long-term battles with suicidal depression and living in my imagination to survive, so I know what that struggle is like. I am very happy to hear that you are doing better now. A quiet little cottage by the lake sounds heavenly! One last thing, I think you may have forgotten to link to your new page on your Writing page.
Thank you! Glad to know someone can relate and shares my non-fluffy views. Feeling alone gets awfully tiring. :P That study doesn't surprise me! Kids can be so intuitive. Two of my younger cousins had some interesting experiences. It's a real shame how society beats the spiritual wonder out of us, whether it's with fear of hellfire, militant atheism, or capitalism.
I'm happy that Bast helped you and that you're doing better as well! I did forget to update my Writing page, but it was too late to do anything since I didn't want that page to show up first, so I have to wait. Thanks for the reminder, though!
Some years ago I got quite fascinated by the whole Mary Rodwell and Starseed discussions on Youtube, but then I think I felt somewhat dishearted considering I wasn't being contacted or visited by aliens... I thought I was a prime candidate, not fitting in and feeling different to everyone else.
@cyberwitch Yes I know how alienating it can be. Thankfully the Internet has allowed like-minded people such as us to find each other. I think most people's just prioritise their feelings over what's actually true. They'd rather believe in nonsense than believe the truth if the latter makes them feel bad.
@bmh I knew starseeds who hadn't witnessed a single UFO, either. One in particular didn't even seem to have otherworldly contact, but they still felt alien and could recall their previous form and home. It's all so strange.
