That's no big deal. I mean, so what. So what if everything I ever thought I knew is a lie and nothing has any meaning anymore? It's par for the course in this decade.

Honestly I don't know what to make of the Mandela Effect. I can see how some details can be easily overlooked and filled in by the human brain with what seems like logical stuff. I'm sure that most of it is the result of our ability to fill in the gaps in perception automatically, combined with generally fuzzy memories and some bandwagon-itis. But sometimes a bit of it, or a similar phenomenon, will strike me as a little too weird or on-the-nose. I usually ignore that though because as I've said before, the central tenet of my cosmological system is that the universe is boring and nothing exciting ever happens.

I'm 100% on board with the lost civilization thing, though. Even if it's BS, it doesn't hurt anything to believe it. We are postmodern after all, and reality is helpless to define itself without us. Might as well make it interesting.

See that's what I'm saying!

A LOT of stuff chalked up to the so called Mandela Effect is fluff and head tricks. It's the little things like Sicily being much closer to Italy on a map or whether it was "Jiffy" or "Jif" peanut butter that I can shuck off as mis-remembering. But I've seen old school preachers truly unnerved by some of the bible stuff. It's stuff that they taught from their whole lives now saying something different, and apparently having always been so. :fnord:

Discordia isn't about cool, son.
The sooner you learn that the happier you'll be.

You’re right. I see it now. This is definitely not the cool kids’ table. The jocks and the greasers wouldn’t sit here either. This is more like the table where the ‘detention after school yardbirds’ hang out.

A lot of it is little things like "bottles" being in place of the word "wineskins" in a certain teaching about new doctrines being incompatible with old methods. I can do my homework and get a list together have it in a day or so with references by book and number. The big things are things like a different "Lord's Prayer" and changes in one of the major prophets... forget which off the top of my head, but "and the lion shall lay down with the lamb" now talks about a wolf or something which has a VERY different symbolic meaning.

New thread seemed appropriate to begin the new project. Here's 5 of the bigger ones. More later as I can.

So this past birthday, one of my awesome coworkers got me a wand and i've been looking up cool stuff to carve into it. I'very been looking at norse runes, but i've also got a Star of Chaos carved into it as well. Pics:

I like to think that Peter  Wellers characters are all in the same continuity, that robocop led to naked lunch, which led to Buckaroo Banzia

Fun fact: In a movie called The New Age, Peter Weller plays a character who pretends to be a sweepstakes administrator named "Bob Dobbs" in order to scam gullible people into paying "shipping costs" for a shittier consolation prize.

Who was it that said they believe in synchronicity?

Here's my anti-Woo: I firmly believe that because all things are fundamentally interconnected (existing in the same universe, all coming from the same point of origin), any exhaustive analysis of apparently unrelated phenomena will inevitably yield seemingly meaningful coincidences. ("What the thinker thinks, the prover proves.") This plane can be navigated only at the cost of one's sanity.

If synchronicity is the road trip, a firm grip on reality is your gas, and you will find few, if any, stations at which to refuel.

I'm an existentialist. I do not believe that life has no meaning, merely that if it does have one then it is neither obvious nor can we all ever hope to agree on what it might be. Nihilism is a naive and intellectually dishonest inversion of this epistemological problem; the only pragmatic and worthwhile alternative is to imbue one's own life with one's own meaning and to live passionately towards that end. The journey is its own destination.

Pineapple is awful.  But it is good on pizza.

And kiwifruit is life and you should shut your big gob about them, before you piss God off.
