Re: The VOID
A friend was telling me about that game. I admit that I'm slightly jealous because literally all I get to play are shitty cash grab mobile games. I guess some of them are okay.
 Quoting: Light of my Little Left Eye


I forgot to ask or forgot what you said..is your internship paid? If offered a full-time position, does it pay enough that you could get an apartment?

Seems it would have to pay BIG, to even rent an apartment without 3+ roommates crowding up your space..

1 roommate can be hard enough. 3 roommates is a recipe for future disaster.
 Quoting: Seer777


Yeah I don't know if the full time position would play enough to get my own apartment. Likely not, but the experience is still quite valuable for future jobs. It is a paid internship, but a very small amount. Enough to buy myself some nice things while I'm here but not really enough to save up for the future.
 Quoting: Light of my Little Left Eye


How many hours a week is it?

How's the opportunity for networking?
 Quoting: Seer777


Around 10 hours a week. I did get to wait in the staff line for the salad bar today. Yay.
There's certainly opportunity for networking, and it's a big resume bonus that may get me in the door somewhere

Perhaps inquire if you can earn college credit to get you closer to completing your degree?

You can't be that many credit out?

2 terms right?

Re: The VOID
Here we'll just do it this way.

Cult of the blind eye

Slogans:
"Scene of the unseen"
“Seeing inside > seeing outside”
“As above, so below”

Rituals:
-congregating while sporting an eyepatch to symbolize loyalty to Odin
-blinking coded messages
-meditating while blindfolded to remove distractions of the outside world

Mission statement:
We aim to serve and bring glory to Odin, the one-eyed father of the Nordic people. Odin offered an eye in order to see into forgotten realms, gaining untold wisdom. The blind eye symbolizes the eye which sees into the world of the spirit, while one eye remains to see the material world before us.


Unilluminai

Slogans:
"Friends of the 99%"
“We know that they know that we know...y’know?”

Rituals:
-blacking out the pyramid on the dollar bill
-analyzing popular music videos to determine the subliminal messages the illuminati are embedding in the public mind

Mission statement:
The Illuminati are out there. They control the federal reserve, they discuss matters of global governance at the Bilderberg Meeting, and they use celebrities to send subliminal messages to the public. Those of us enlightened enough to know the truth about the Illuminati have formed an organization dedicated to exposing it and returning power to the people. Because of the vast surveillance system operated by our Illuminati overlords, we are forced to operate in strict secrecy and maintain anonymity at all times.

Flat earth foundation

Slogans:
"conspiracy of Christopher columbis"
“We think for ourselves...do you?”

Rituals:
-smashing of the globe
-spreading the word on social media

Mission statement:
Everybody assumes that they know the truth about the world, but what if they’re wrong? We take the word of scientists who tell us what is real, but we make no attempts to verify their assertions. How many people have really been to space to see the shape of the earth? Most of us have never felt the earth physically moving around the sun, so how do we know it really does? The flat earth foundation denies the belief in any fact that we cannot personally verify. We are a radical truth movement united against the monopolization of science by academic authorities.

Church of Cosmic Chaos

Slogans:
“Ushering armageddon”
“The codeword is chaos”
“That is not dead which can eternal lie. And with strange aeons even death may die.”

Rituals:
-theatrical reenactments of H.P Lovecraft’s “The Call of Cthulhu”
-divining messages from the sacred octopus, envoy of the God Cthulhu

Mission Statement:
Our order’s mantra is "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh C'thulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn": Cthulhu waits dreaming. Cthulhu represents the embodiment of chaos, which exists everywhere order can be found. Unlike order, chaos is poorly understood. All living organisms, in the process of maintaining internal balance, create entropy in the universe. The total entropy in the universe is always increasing. To the members of our order, this means that chaos is the ultimate state of reality, and thus we embrace and worship it. We do not fear chaos, but rather see it as the ultimate creative nexus: when no pattern exists, any pattern becomes possible.

Any time I go lucid in a dream, I often take off flying. Looks/feels just like that.

Re: The VOID
Why even call it a cult?

It automatically has negative connotations right out the gate.

Why not, design your own card game, or something like that?

Not that, that would be easy. But you played games enough, I bet you could do it.

I was doing some research last night looking for different card and board games for my niece and nephew. Stuff like this:

Say that yes, it is in your capacity, you are the only one who can, you would go through a great deal of suffering to do so, and if you do not, they will either die or something worse than death would happen.
 Quoting: Light of my Little Left Eye


What kind of suffering are you talking about exactly?

Suffering has both a ceiling and a floor. Finding one or the other, fades the middle.


There are too, many unknown factors to say for sure. There are countless things worse than death. Suffered by the most vulnerable and innocent among us.

I saw an image yesterday of children being burned white phosphorus..while still alive running with their burns. Recalls the iconic Vietnam era image of the naked girl running having her clothes burned off..

Re: The VOID
I was kinda leaning on the 'helping a caterpillar get out of its cocoon' analogy.

Sometimes what seems like a case where one needs saving, is really only one's ego attempting to relieve their own discomfort watching someone suffer.

For an example..parents whose children end up getting cancer and have to watch them suffer for months, sometimes years. Sometimes they still die. Point is, I think most would tear their heart from their chest and give it willingly in the place of watching their child suffer like that..but there is nothing you can do. You just have to keep hoping and praying.

Of course I have faith in you.

 Quoting: Seer777


Ah, yes. I see what you mean. We were just talking about that very thing in family therapy yesterday. How parents in addict families are desperate to save their children and in that desperation tend to enable them. That is a thing that must be considered.

My question was more of a hypothetical, though. I mean, if you were literally the only one who could help. In a case where a person inostensibly did need saving.
 Quoting: Light of my Little Left Eye


One the greatest quotes I ever read about parenthood mentioned how 'having a child, is like having your heart walking around outside your body..'

I thought that very keen.

It is my capacity to do the saving and what would be the consequence?

Panpsychism avoids both of these extremes, and this is why some of our leading neuroscientists are now embracing it as the best framework for building a science of consciousness.

I am optimistic that we will one day have a science of consciousness, but it won’t be science as we know it today. Nothing less than a revolution is called for, and it’s already on its way.
