have you come up with a unified field theory through introspective meditation yet?

I post things for conversation and novel ideas.

But I can imagine how awesome it would be if everyone in OT only talked about NFL, video games, fapping and chrome m3s.

Of course electricity is real. I imagine you experience it every day.

Perhaps. And even if I have I would never expect anyone to believe my own subjective experience via meditation. Not everything you experience or learn while meditating can be put into words or shown materially

ah hah. So maybe with some formal education, you'd understand how to describe it in a way that would be comprehensible to others.

Or maybe you can meditate/do some coke with some of your stock broker buddies and come up with the answer together.

until then, though, the scientific community will just have to wait until they can intuit the answers on their own.

Then why should you believe anything even remotely science-related that you found on a trading blog?

have you ever played the 'telephone game'? Written language > spoken word when it comes to accuracy. Also, we're at a point now where fact trumps faith, so no matter how hard you feel or want something to be true, chances are if it's not in the math then it isn't true.

So you would rather believe that one man with a YouTube account has more validity than a peer-reviewed journal consisted of empirical evidence gathered by men and women with about 7 years of college education and decades of research experience each, because it's thinking out of the box?

I never said I believed everything this man is talking about. I always keep my mind open to all possibilities and I let personal experience decide what I am going to believe in, not some textbook or scientist or colorful glowing tube in the living room.

I find it quite amusing how badly some people like to attack ideas outside the norm. Gotta keep the mind in that cozy box you built yourself...

That is exactly what scientists do. They think outside of the box about an idea, test their theory, and when they think they may have found something, they don't personally advocate for it until it has been studied by many other scientists. You're just not smart enough to have an exact theory to test. You just follow the sheep of trying to be different, that in turn makes you a sheep. You make yourself believe you're different by believing in things no one else believes in, and proclaim yourself as smarter than everyone else because YOU believe it. When in actuality you weren't smart enough to believe what is true, and distinguish what isn't.

You attack ideas in the norm, because you're afraid to accept things that are true, because the truth can often be worse for you than believing something that isn't.

Collins you are whack bro. I did not come in here proclaiming anything or attacking anything. I posted a video on an interesting, controversial topic. I never said I was smarter than anyone else, I actually think we are all quite ignorant

Wait till December. You'll get tired of hearing about it.

I just hope that there are no mass suicides with Doomsday cults.

It wouldn't be a doomsday cult without a mass suicide or two

Yes you did, subconsciously. When you challenged every single person saying what you posted was dumb, with emotion. This isn't your first post like this, and we see a pattern of bullsh1t that you must believe in. When people refute your posts, you claim to not ever say you believed it, just posted it. If someone semi-agrees with you, you start a conversation. Pick a side.
