Hello from Canada

Post by X. Troy Dinaire on Fri Jul 08, 2016 11:52 am

I'm a baby boomer who is half-French, half-Italian, and half-Canadian, and as you can see, not a mathematician. I have always been interested in the paranormal, and I have about 60 books on UFOs alone. I was always interested in music, too (and am an amateur musician). And I have certificates and diplomas in art, psychology, metaphysics, botany, astronomy, etc.

By the way, both a's in Laval are pronounced short as in the English ''pan'' in the N. Am. accent, as are many a's in French, especially in the beginning and middle of a word, in Europe as well as Canada, contrary to the bizarre view of orthodoxers, in fact, a view so bizarre, it is down there with slopism (as I call it, the view that there are no other minds) and psychic projection, which are even more bizarre than dogmatic skepticism, if that's possible.

Welcome to OMF Troy. I have enjoyed your first posts. You seem like a philosopher at heart. You might enjoy Dan Smiths thread in respect to that. It can run a bit thick there but his writings also have many appealing points too.

My friends and close associates call me Cy. I'm the Admin here as you know. I'm not always here on a daily basis like Dan Smith is but if you pm me as you did earlier or leave a message for me on my blog I get a note in my email to respond in a timely fashion. Lots of irons in the fire for me this year!

So you are Canadian? Are you french or Scot Canadian or something else? I'm south of you in Montana and we have many Canadian visitors here. I've only visited Canada once and it was a wonderful experience. The people I met up there were incredibly friendly and helpful. Took the kids to the Calgary Zoo. Unfortunately the US now requires us all to have passports to go visiting over the border and since we're a large family it simply makes that too expensive to do now.

Cy

''You seem like a philosopher at heart. You might enjoy Dan Smiths thread in respect to that. It can run a bit thick there but his writings also have many appealing points too.''

I'm a lifetime member of the Intl. Soc. for Philosophers. I have an above average IQ but not enough to be in Mensa. I read some of Dan Smith's thread, and there are some things I agree with and some not. Like him I'm a fan of Leibniz but not all the way thru. What I especially like about Leibniz is his necessary truths, something irrationalists (most scientists) don't recognize, which is 1 reason they are usually wrong.

I'm of French and Italian descent and was born in Montreal. I'm glad you visited Calgary and liked it. It's only a hop, skip, and a jump from Montana as you know.

Nice. Yes Dan runs with a 'cutting-edge' type crowd. Most of the whirlwind occurs via their email threads but Dan sometimes posts some of that to his board at OMF. When left to his own devices his work is a combination of philosophy and deep intelligence back-channeling involving certain quarters. You'll learn that if you plow through enough of his content. He and I sometimes flip things back and forth. My specialty is communication, the deep state, and the paradigm. Runs from conspiracy theory to extraterrestrial contact in relation to the current corruption and police state in the U.S. Dan and I differ on many things but at the end of the day both of us truly care about how events pan out. I've rocked the boat in his email lists a few times about the 'depopulation agenda' so I tend to get added and booted off on a semi-regular basis. Mostly my circles of associates are very different than his.

I have a semi-neglected disorganized blog here called: Uncommon Thoughts On Common Things. It's mostly a dumping ground (when I have time) for things of interest in my own sphere. This year I've had so much radio and Manticore Group stuff, there's not alot of posts. I've been revamping my social networking and routine to be able to spend more time here and produce more coherency. It's a work in progress.

If you'd like you're own space you are welcome to set one up. Anyone who does so I give them moderation powers so they can keep house in it as they see fit. There's plenty of room here for anyone who needs to run a little separate from you or vice versa. That's one of the benefits of not being one of the 'big boys' in the world of forums. We do, fyi, get a fairly high traffic of intelligence community employed characters, but they usually are strictly readers. They haven't caused any problems for us here so I don't use them for target practice, and they're welcome to come and go same as anyone else.

Cy
