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 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.

Feb.15th Goto-Session

Post by 99 on Fri Feb 16, 2018 11:52 am

I keep wondering why Ron was interested in your (Dan's) interest in the Eschaton when you guys first met. Then he put you in charge of developing that for him. You mentioned that yesterday at that goto-session.

So based on that information, at least on the surface, we can surmise that whatever he knows about the UFO/ET phenomenon, he was leaning towards the viewpoint that it goes beyond the ETH and Ultraterrestrial Hypothesis and into the demonic; hence why he was interested in eschatology.

On the other hand, and this is the most likely scenario, it would be conducive for the gov't to know how to predict how that demographic that already believes that the phenomenon is demonic and how they believe it fits into their biblical end-world theories, would react and behave should UFO Disclosure occur (or for that matter, some big UFO event).

So logically, we can surmise from this, that the gov't takes the UFO phenomenon very seriously ... and that they are not ruling out that some big UFO event will occur that will eradicate any notions that UFOs are not real. If that were not the case, then they wouldn't be scrambling about looking for information on how to contain mass hysteria should an event like that happen. In fact, it seems to me like they expect that something like that WILL happen sometime in the foreseeable future and they want to be prepared for it.

Then, of course, they could be evaluating something like this (a false flag event):

I think you could use a refresher course on eschatology.

I guess there are good eschatons and bad eschatons.

You have not yet met a good one.
