Where did all the Open Minds Forum members go?

Fri Oct 19, 2012 12:29 pm by Admin

With Open Minds Forum restored now for almost half a year at it's new location with forumotion.com we can now turn to look at reaching out to OMF's original members who have not yet returned home. OMF's original membership was over 6,000 members strong, prior to the proboards suspension, according to the rolls of the time. We can probably safely assume that some of those accounts were unidentified socks. If we were to assume a reasonable guess of maybe as many as 30% possible sock accounts then that would leave potentially somewhere between 4800 to 4900 possible real members to locate. That is still a substantial number of people.

Who were all these people? Some were average individuals with common interests in ufology, exopolitics, globalism, corruption, earthchanges, science and technology, and a variety of other interests. Some just enjoyed being part of a vibrant and unusually interesting community. Others were representative of various insider groups participating in observation and outreach projects, while still others were bonafide intelligence community personnel. All with stake in the hunt for truth in one fashion or another. Some in support of truth, and communication. Others seeking real disclosure and forms of proof. And others highly skeptical of anything or limited subjects. The smallest division of membership being wholly anti-disclosure oriented.

So where did these members vanish to? They had many options. There are almost innumerable other forums out there on the topics of UFO's or Exopolitics, the Unexplained, and Conspiracy Theory. Did they disappear into the world-wide network of forum inhabitants? Did some go find new homes on chatrooms or individual blogs? Did they participate in ufo conventions or other public events and gatherings? How about those who represented groups in special access? Or IC and military observers? Those with academic affiliations? Where did they all go and what would be the best way to reach out and extend an invitation to return?

And what constitutes a situation deserving of their time and participation? Is the archive enough? How exactly do people within the paradigm most desire to define a community? Is it amenities, humanity or simply population size for exposure? Most of the special guests have been emailed and have expressed that population size for exposure is what most motivates them. But not all. Long-time member Dan Smith has other priorities and values motivating his participation. Should this open opportunities for unattached junior guests who have experience and dialog to contribute to the world? How best to make use of OMF's time, experience and resources?

Many skeptics would like to see the historical guardian of discourse opportunity to just up and disappear; go into permanent stasis. They think that not everyone has a right to speak about their experiences and if there is no proof involved then there can philosophically be no value to discourse. I personally would respectfully disagree with them. Discourse has always been the prelude to meaningful relationships and meaningful mutual relationships have always been the prelude to exchanges of proof. In a contentious social environment with regards to communication vs disclosure how do we best re-establish a haven for those preludes? Is it only the "if we build it they will come" answer? Well considering OMF has been largely fully functional over the last four or five months this line of reasoning is not necessarily true. So what would be the best way re-establish this? Your suggestions are sought. Please comment.

Concerns of a Contactee

Post by myalienshadow on Thu May 09, 2013 12:30 am

i have plenty of concerns, talking to abductees. theres one thing they all say in common to me. "they always return". so, i have every reason to be concerned.
there are just some days where i might see a funny star, or few stars shining multicolored. maybe theyre just stars.
i was lucky enough to catch a shooting star with my ex/bf, it was amazing. we just happened to be looking up that very moment, and both got to see it. i hope to never forget it. i knew it was good luck somehow. i know we were super lucky to see it.
when it comes to unknown living entities, i know damn well we shouldve been taught about beings outside of our perception of "reality".

That's an excellent point to mention about them always returning.

Wrt concerns of Contactees, I have a question for you which I've posed to others but have had limited success getting non-Contactees to respond to.

That question is, "what responsibilities do we have for the welfare of ETs if the paradigm evolves into unambiguous contact which involves ETs integrating into our society rather than us integrating into theirs?"

An example I've used is what sounds like a possible Charles Hall type Tall White being walking into a sporting goods store and looking around, dressed in human clothing. The witness who seen it noted that the being was not human and rather than walk up and greet it in usual human fashion because the witness thought that might intimidate it, instead psychically outreached to it. The being exhibited being startled and fled the scene out the door.

In Conspiracy Theory one of the subjects of discussion is how a corrupt system hostile to unambiguous contact would react and treat attempts at integrating ETs. Do we the general population have an obligation to protect these beings from what we believe to be criminal elements within human society?

i know for sure theres a lot of bullshit propaganda going on still to this day, about how malevolent they are. so were freightened into a corner.
there are ppl who hang with lions, wolves, bears. ppl tend to run, and in the process are then chased and devoured. maybe natures concept is, dont behave like prey and you wont become prey. ive thought about this.
but you also dont want to be a predator to them. maybe we need to sit down, let them approach us, not say a word. maybe we just need to listen. maybe theyve been trying to reach out, but like a ghost is screamed at their face and ran from, maybe its why they dont bother with us so much. its like we just cant deal with it. i guess some of us can. some of us can not go crazy. some ppl can literally just stand and stare, with no thought, except..WtF?!
i guess i did go crazy. because i couldnt even go to the br by myself in my own home after the alien shadow.
its hard for me to trust my ears and eyes, when they have these technologies and beyond belief capabilities, to transmit waves, and mess with your perception. to fuck with you. they can microwave a person within their home, so i dont know if it was real "contact". but i was followed out my apartment walking to the er. so i believe it couldve been something real maybe.
no one wants these beings to take over them. they can possess you. but why would they feel, what would make them feel they youre useless enough to just use this way?
do we need to protect them? from us? most ppl are defending themselves, the first error these beings make is trespassing. in our minds it is our home. we have loved ones we protect. when something strange is found in your home, something that doesnt belong, something that is a potential threat to your family, you protect your family and fight. its only natural.

Fear prevents learning and discovery.

Those who study bears, wolves, lions, etc - would they have been able to learn about them if possessed by fear or would the fear always overpower higher thought?

Fear is healthy in many regards, but it also has the capacity to restrict us obtaining a greater awareness to the nature of other things.

Recognize it, but do not empower it.

Keep safe, Shadow
