The guy on the phone was so dumb I managed to get him to spend 15 minutes teaching me how to type my name! Can you believe that?! 15 minutes! I even convinced him I didn't know how keyboards or mice (mouses?) work! It was so funny I actually think he started punching his wall! Ah I love Americans!

but then again he lists his city as Shambhala what a joke....you have to check that ego first before thinking you are ready to go there, Ego poisons Karma and we all know how much of a wonderful Ego this poor delusional lad has....


It's sad to see that you've devoted so much of your time in trying to figure me out while the rest of the world is going to hell in a handbasket while you sit by idly.

It's much easier to attack the messenger than it is the message and you definitely appear to prefer taking the easier way out rather than questioning the perceived reality which has been painted for you by a vast network of spin artists.

BTW - Shambhala is Sanskrit for "a place of peace/tranquility/happiness." One quick glance at it's Wikipedia page could have told you that but of course that little nugget of information wouldn't fit in with your agenda here

In Tibetan lore, Shambhala is a hidden place where both perfect and imperfect beings (i.e. - those who are still striving for perfection) live and who are diligently guiding the evolution of humanity (with the keyword being EVOLUTION.)

Anyway, my ego is minuscule when compared to those of the so called 'enlightened ones' of Freemasonry who claim themselves to be the guardians of a vast repository of both material and spiritual knowledge; knowledge which could be used to benefit not only themselves in their material endeavors but also the rest of humanity as a whole, but that's a whole different topic altogether and it would take a lot of time to get into it.

I'm kind of curious, do you know any masons in person? I know/have come across a few, the ones a willing to be a little more forthcoming about it (obviously they're going to be silent on several issue and you can only push the envelope so far with them). As to be expected, they're fairly intelligent people and interesting to make conversation with. Some of them (like first 3 degrees) are actually pretty likeable people. An aquaintance of mine has been through the Golden Dawn order (he talked about it a bit more once I spotted his x degree certificate in his room). I haven't really spoken to any higher degree masons (say 31st to 33rd degree, depending on which branch of masonry they're affiliated with ofcourse, in the south you're going to find mosty Scottish Rite, very few exceptions) for obvious reasons. Just stay the fuck away from OTO people, no good. Some of them actually don't have such big egos, but they do once you prod further into masonry and the more secretive aspects of masonry as opposed the the basic esoteric concepts. I was invited to take an interest (to say the least) in the Golden Dawn... but if I really had a deep interest in the esoteric, and was naive about the nature of most organized societies, I'd probably be a mason.

My great-grandfather was a Freemason but I'm not sure what degree.

I have several friends who are as well but I don't think that any of them have ventured past the Blue Lodge and I don't really want to intrude so I seldom bring it up unless I'm telling them about something that I've learned about on my own.

One of them just bought a copy of Manly P. Hall's The Secret Teachings of All Ages: An Encyclopedic Outline of Masonic, Hermetic, Qabbalistic and Rosicrucian Symbolical Philosophy and I'm looking forward to reading it once he's finished but I doubt that we'll be discussing it too much.

I'm sorry, is this a public forum, or am I to understand that Trancer-X is the only person reading posts here?

Furthermore, putting someone on ignore simply because you fail to convince them of anything is pretty childish. But I would expect nothing more from someone who touts their own "independent thought" as the sole purveyor of truth. If you actually understood what it means to think independently, you would not quote wikipedia and youtube articles from unknown sources ad infinitum, and you would not go around criticizing everyone and anyone's argument that disagrees with yourself because the basic assumption belying independent thought is that everyone will reach their own conclusions when it is applied. If you have an independent argument to make, let's hear it, because I'm tired of watching videos that stand in as proxies for your so-called "independent thought." If it's so independent and original, why don't you let it stand for itself instead of posting wiki links that basically do nothing more than say "I don't really understand what's in this link but I'm going to disguise that by posting a link instead of my own independent summary of it" every single time you have some "point" to make? I'm sorry if my own independent conclusions don't align with yours, but frankly, I don't know why you come to a discussion board if you're just looking for people to blindly parrot your own ideas. Isn't that precisely what you criticize other people of doing? Pretty pointless if you ask me.

You remind me of Bill O'Reilly. You're not looking for a debate; you're looking for a choir to preach to. So keep me on ignore, at least I won't have to waste my time responding to your pithy youtube comebacks.

Talking Speaking of YouTube


Pig punch videos. ha ha ha

The Apple iPhone has made a few appearances on Saturday Night Live, and this is one of the sketches that didn't quite make the final cut.
