[quote:ArmchairObserver:MV85NjMyNjNfMzQ2NDQ3MTFfNkM5QTJDNjA=] [quote:NikkiK:MV85NjMyNjNfMzQ2NDM5NzlfQTM1MjE2Njc=] Okay maybe this is just me rambling but I feel a desperate need to respond. I have been following this thread for a while now and it is frightening how many things I am reading on here that stir something up in me. I was in a gifted program in my state in the midwest. I don't remember anything unusual about that so much but I do have some disconnected memories from child hood that make no sense. I sometimes wonder if I didn't just make them up in my own mind. I think there are people in this world who are so extremely gifted, not just intelligent, but capable of changing the world. Have you ever felt like you could influence everything around you just using your thoughts? Have you ever experienced so many episodes of sychronicity that you think this isn't just random deja vu but something strange is going on? I just randomly remembered my dad telling me a story one day about how he used to be in the Rosecrucians, when I was very small. He told me how they practiced perfecting the ability of moving things with their mind. I've never been able to do that, that I know of. But he has never brought it up again. He said he started to get freaked out about what they were doing and quit. Maybe some of us have natural abilities we don't have to perfect and those are either interesting enough to study, or threatening enough to be watched very closely. Who knows. Like I said, I am probably just rambling. [/quote] I think that part of that sense of being able to change the world might be due to the program itself. The attitude stuff that I read seemed to have a consistent theme of assuring that we would become beneficial contributors to society. I still struggle with that every day because I got it "at home", too. This idea that whatever I do must be noble and beneficial to society was ground in hard with me by my grandfather as well. If you haven't read Gowan, you'd probably be interested in it. Whoa, just realized that it's all gone now. The CSUN link is now removed from their database. That's disturbing. [/quote]
Were you ever removed, many times, from your regular class for "testing"?
Were you shown a series of high speed images on a television, not once, but many times?
Was the school psychologist selectively interested in you?
