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.

See, now you have done it, I have to accept you were supposed to butt in.

It was rude to just cut off our convo a few weeks ago.

You can say, hey dude, taking a break.

Don’t be a rude boy, because you force me to accept it, which is rude.

I make myself available, don’t abuse the access.

It can be a little challenging to live in a divide house with a wife who is is Mormon and wants to raise the kids Mormon and then me a Goat who knows it's just a ride

On top of that the neighborhood I live in is 95% Mormon and they come to my house to teach my wife and kids and make sure my wife and kids are protected from me, who they have decided is an anti-christ.

Then my sister called me balling a couple days ago telling me she wants her old brother back who used to go to the temple with her each week and wondering what went wrong....

We have a church congregation facebook page for our neighborhood. I posted some Jesus quotes from the book of John on Sunday where Jesus talks to Nicodemus about being born of the spirit and just enjoying the ride here and now and being like the wind not knowing where we came from or where we are going and how he calls himself The Son of Man living in heaven on earth.

They didn't like that at all. I was promptly removed and blocked from the neighborhood facebook page and then the Bishop on Sunday stopped me at church in the hall and lectured me and tried to correct my false doctrines.

Anyway, who cares really.

What did I expect.

I'm learning to not engage at all and just placate but it is a challenge to abide sometimes.

I'm getting over it.

If it's just a ride then I should just let the wife do what she wants with the kiddos and do the whole church thing if she wants and instead of fight it just lead by example and stay chill.

I would stop going to church if the wifey didn't want to go but that would create contention and I could just as easily go so I just tag along.

Enough about me, just releasing some pent up things.

Been struck by lightning 7 times, but the Universe keeps reminding me I'm lucky to be alive.

You can be as mad as a mad dog at the way things went....you can swear and curse the fates...but when it comes to the end...you have to let it go

Smelly has also been dealt a bit of a crazy hand, who hasn't, I have no excuses.

The Dude Abides

Going up on the roof to take a break.

When I come back I will sync up as a fellow reborn Dudeist Priest.

I also might have posted this video with my little "we are already home/nicodemus" facebook rant on my Church's facebook page. I guess I was asking to be kicked out. Razz



No I don't think I'm special, I was just messing with them.

It was a little bit fun, but it wasn't very Dude like.

Hehehe

Also, the actor who plays Jesus in all those LDS bible videos is my cousin.

Haha!

I'll tell you what else, my wetikos love the fact that all of this waking up happened in my 33rd year of life, the same age Jesus was.

Sorry wetikos, The Princess and the Smelly Goat got to me before you had a chance to sink your claws in.

This is one hell of a funny ride.

When you embarked on the path of self realization, you put all things, including your physical life, at risk.

There is no guarantee anything will ever work out.

As a matter of fact, it could all end now.

Now, the one thing we can share observing is a Human Being may live to 120.

How long does one need to be alive or married or a brother or father, as long as is needed.

So then there is only being the best you can be now.

Then there isn’t anything to wait for, is there?

What is there to do, what needs to be done.

Aspirations will keep you alive longer.

What do you aspire to and why?

Are you maximizing your peace and tranquility?

You can live 200% balls out too.

Too many things to think about.

So you can be still and move when you need to.

Now it’s all done.

So why are you breathing?

What is that?

You know you are doing something we call breathing.

You can deconstruct anything, that’s my way, maybe not your way, so what is THE way?

You will know when you should or not.

You met Dan and Ron and UFO people, so what?

You got yourself involved.

You didn’t have to.

You are looking for answers?

I have none.

I only know a little about how to avoid being fooled by illusions, the rest is beyond my conscious care.

Thanks Smelly.

I can always count on you to use your bibliomancy from the void to keep proper perspective.

LOL yes, I do have a phone #, but I don't see that you could say anything to me in private that you couldn't here.

"Pay attention...... know where you are."

Yes I do. What exactly does that mean. And yes i do pay attention.

You know, you can be really rude at times Dan, and that is one reason I wouldn't speak to you over the phone you need this public platform to keep you on the rails.

wk,

Have you done your homework on immaterialism, personalism and the best possible world?  

This is the immaterialism thread.  I am frequently admonished for not being able to maintain Coherence on my own thread, in my own section.  

(Oops, wrong thread...... but, even so, you are too close to home for me to ignore.)

You, sir, are not helping.

wk, you need remedial work on the Coherence theory of Truth, CohTT.


(cont......)

Dan, the Love I know tells me the my presence here causes you far to much perturbation.

So, in and for your own long term well being I will not post on this board any longer.

I hope this will coincide with your apparent wishes.

No sweat for me man.

wk,

Before you go about perturbing the cosmic Coherence, be aware of what your agenda is, and how you cohere with others.
