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.

"Missing Time"

Post by RandomSample

SmokeHigh56,

Well I started a new topic for us here. I would really like to hear your story, if you still feel like talking about it.

@Smoke high56,

Getting use to this system. I thought as long as I was here I would tell
you about my missing time at work once. This would of been '92 or '93. I was getting use to the notion that I was an experiencer. Was working midnights, (11:30 p.m. to 07:30 a.m.) I was caught up, went to take a smoke break. Next thing I know a friend comes running up to me saying, "Where the "f" have you been? _They_ have been looking all over for you!" (They being the Big Wheels, management. Caught me flat footed, I start running back to my work station, right into my foreman. He was a good guy, we were friends. He asks me "What's going on?" The only thing I could think to say was, "I was taking a break and must of lost track of time." They had been looking for me for at least an hour. Of course they checked the break area. I was lying, he knew I was lying and I knew
that he knew I was lying. I wanted the ground to open up and sallow me. He wasn't mad, he was disappointed. He didn't write me up, but he could have. That didn't stop the rumor mill from running. He never trusted me after that. And up until that point he was a good friend.
As far as where i went, if indeed I went anywhere, I have never been able to get past remembering the look on his face far enough to do any recovery work...
Thanks for listening...

Hello my friend. ....for me was between 88.89..friend an I were in a city called winnepeg Manitoba. ..we were at a bar .having few drinks.it was getting late. So we decided to level for home which is about a hr an half away straight north highway #8...have a look. .that road is not straight at all. .well we left the bar I turn left on city streets heading to get on #8 highway north barely made it past over pass. That is the last thing we remember. .next thing we remember is turning right onto the road that turns of highway #8 into our town of Riverton. .we both looked at each other and said what the fuck happen. .any feeling of booze effects was gone.just like we never drank a thing. .i asked him about this over the years he won't discuss this at all.

@SmokeHigh56, on the car trip, Sometimes I love this tech stuff. Was able to look up the map. Maybe we can come back to this later. It's interesting. Same with things in the sky. Right now I keep wondering about the dreams. Do you remember any details you want to talk about. When you realized they were coming true, how did it make you feel. (Always kind of freaked me a little.

(I'm trying to get a feeling from you. I don't want to draw you out into talking about anything you don't want to talk about.)

Post on Thu Jan 11, 2018 11:18 am by Smokehigh 56

Dreams of being at places. Waking up and saying to myself ok fine that was interesting. Few days later. I'm with the friends in dream. An it happens. It is freaking wild

SmokeHigh56,

  I just wanted to let anyone reading these posts they can jump in anytime. Smile

Twins, Doppelgangers! Got to love them.  What the heck is that all about? I use to work for Pizza Hut,
this was mid to late '70's. Guy comes in, day shift, to pick up his order. He's all like, "Hey man! I know
you! You are an animal! That party last night was insane. I was sure the cops were going to show up!"

   Smoke High 56, at that time I was and still am a committed Christian. I was young then still in my teens, believe I am more easy going now. But at that time drinking and drugs were not for me. I save that for college. I kept trying to tell him it wasn't me, but he started talking about some of the things "my twin" went on about. My twin claimed to be a sailplane (glider pilot) and a single engin plane pilot, who love white water canoeing. All of that was me, check my avatar. I really didn't know what to make of it all. There was _nobody_ to talk to about that sort of thing. Small southern _Very_ Christian town,
what maybe, demonic possession? I know this sounds funny but I was so happy to find out about doppelgangers. Not because I go with all the stuff written about them, but it gave me time to find out other people have at least heard of that sort of thing. I believe you are the first one I have met who had something like that happen.

   Just let me throw something in here. I am not trying to "One Up You" on these stories. I an not trying to say, "My Phenomena its bigger than yours!" I have seen people get into that. When it comes to this sort of stuff, "What you got is what you got." How can it be a competition? What would the prize be? I have a muddled collection of strange memories, that's it. I guess my story has a beginning, sort of a confused middle, but that's about it. I have no big answers, no grand story, just some strange stuff, hence the name Random Sample. I think most people are, I don't know "Experiencers of anomalous or paranormal stuff.
 Weekend coming, Granddaughter is here, won't have much time till Monday. Take care!

SmokeHigh 56,

I was certain I had written about doubles before. So, went looking on the internet
and found this. It’s from over 20 years ago.
RS> The perception of being in more than one place at one                                                                    
RS> time.
        This one I have talked about before so can give a little more detail.
I was sitting in my chair in the living room when I "realized" that I was
also sitting on the right side of the sofa and the left side of the sofa,
all the same time. I had my eyes closed at the time. It was strange. By
just focusing I could "be" in any one of those three positions.
Or by focusing a different way I could somehow be in all three places
at the same time. My one concern was trying to figure out just which of
the three was the real me. Finally, I just picked the "me" in the chair
and stayed there.
PG> You mean meeting your double?
        This was one of the few memories I brought back with me at the end
of the Prism flashback. I don't recall where the meeting took place. Some
room somewhere. It was your basic, "I'm Random Sample!" And him smiling and
saying, "No, I'm Random." All in all, I liked the guy.
(Edited for spelling and grammar. I also used my avatar name.)

Hi Guys, you have a fascinating discussion going here!  I'm curious what Random Sample thinks about the prism experience in relation to remove viewing that you mentioned Smokinghigh56?  

I have a little something that might shed some light on RS's prism experience but it is distinctly different from remote viewing and far closer to what RS is describing...

We Old Irish have a game we played as kids which is a variation on hide and seek.  When hiding you do what's called 'thinking yourself'.  You essentially hide in the open but 'think yourself' the same as whatever you are next to, or sitting on, etc.  Like thinking yourself a tree while sitting on a moss covered log or thinking yourself a rock if next to a boulder.  The others have to find you.  The technique uses the mental faculties to take the known 'pattern' or 'imprint' of what the chosen object is and 'becoming it' which is not so much literal as it is 'putting out' the 'awareness of the imprint' into the collective environ essentially registering it as that...It's kind of like the 'glamour' (non-mechanical version) that some of the non-humans use to hide from humans in the vicinity, except instead of there being nothing there, in this case 'thinking yourself' puts the imprint or perception of the chosen object in your space masking your presence.  The trick to this is you have to nullify your own broadcast of 'pattern' temporarily in the collective consciousness landscape.  So while a machine might notice you if using a camera, a living being which picks up the broadcast of other living beings present is only going to 'notice' the log or the boulder pattern you are broadcasting.  If you get really good at this, the hide and seek game can go on for hours.  We used to limit the space you could do this in so that the hunters weren't seeking over an enormous space.  The idea is to be adept at the technique.

I was wondering if the missing time and even the prism experience might be some sort of malfunctioning proverbial 'off switch' that essentially jumps you in either more than one location or in a different time point?

"Malfunctioning" might not be the best word for this as I know there are people who accidentally at first teach themselves things like lucid dreaming or out of body experiences. Could this be part of the combined human ability and malleable environment that is naturally possible but that most people never stumble across?

Thanks . Cy is does shed light on things. .

This missed time. Was a portal u think my friends. Or just a wrinkle in time warp.????

Post on Wed Jan 17, 2018 1:38 am by hobbit

I would recommend researching TT Brown.
Look into the so called Philadelphia incident.

During the war they desired radar invisibility, a method of not letting the radar pings reflect back.
look into the sub S48, and how they had to degauss the metal of ships after they cross the equator.
Then try to consider what memory is, and if You trip into an alternate time, what memory of that will be here in the present time relative to this planets time?

@ hobbit, ok, jealous now.

While we are here, "what are the odds?" I wonder how many people reading this have even heard of her? Her career was so short. Yet here you are, and here am I.

My best guess is maybe all of the above and more, I tend to look for similar stories, in folklore, of shamanic studies, or mystic lit. They can be found. Seems to mean to me that people have been reporting this for a long, long time. It almost always makes me feel better to find other accounts, and for me the older the better.

To be honest I am no longer I am sure of what anyone means by "Portal". Could be a wrinkle, it would help to have more details. If you wanted to you could go into more detail. More about yourself, maybe a guess at the year, what was going on in your life at that time.

I do not think anything is by chance.

How I come to live here in the shires in Cropredy was not by chance.
how I come to sleep directly in line with the centre aisle of this church is not by chance.

Before Cropredy was called such it was called ringstonewells.

stone rings around the well.

All I needed to learn about time is here, or better...to remember as it is all about memory.

Wow, that's really cool. How do you go about broadcasting? Is it a form of meditation?
