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.

Masks are your own creation. They have a power behind them. Use them and ride them. The only one on this forum who has no mask is Dan it seems. At least he bears himself clearly for us. And we sit here and take potshots at him for being real.

Oh that one got us Wink

Another clueless muppet for the pile.

I love fresh meat.

Ignorance gives it a certain earthy flavor.

Good. I hope it hit you where it hurts.
Your perspective is skewed. Your reality is distorted. You understanding corrupted. You repeat enlightened messages from those more authentic than you. You are as authentic as a happy birthday card mass produced by Hallmark. Continue to barf up bullshit that by repeating proves you don't get it.

I love this moron muppet.

My new fav.

Bahahahahahaha

We will excitedly be awaiting your authentic enlightened words.

Bout time one of you authentic types really showed up.

I can’t wait.

How lucky for Dan.

OPPOSITION

If you haven’t
attained the Way,
don’t admonish others.
Don’t waste time blaming
yourself, either. Just
attain the Way.

We understand your plight RB, give it time, been there Wink

Thanks for the laugh, I laughed so hard, I’m crying and making smelly goat farts.

Fair enough. You should probably switch up your diet. Your dung is too runny and you could probably use a bit of fiber.

Dan's blog is 90% Aaron and Smelly circlejerking about some nonsense they learned from Alan Watts. I hope some more rigor could be attached to this unholy creation. I'll be peacing out until another thousand posts have been made. Adieu gentlefolk.

Naaa

I only eat ignorant muppets, I like the flavor, you will do fine.

You stop by and grace us with your enlightened authentic light anytime, you hear.

God knows we need some real enlightened types around here.

RB is obviously having a hard time.

But us ignorant types are here for you anytime.

I hope you detest us.

We love you though.

You unzipped your fly and that’s all you had?!

Bahahahahaha

...

We aren’t as sophisticated as you are RB, forgive us pagan heathens.

Relax and chill dude, no need to white knuckle this shit here.

One day we hope to reach your great heights.

Until then we will enjoy the green clouds...

smelly and Aaron,

RB is one of my muppets, who is trying to do some homework.  Without another muppet or two, OMF would have to fold.  

We don’t want that, do we?  Or do you........?  
.......

The other day, Aliyah and I were having lunch, and she said something like........ why me, Lord?....... both statement and question.......

I was surprised to hear that coming from her. I thought only humans could ask.

But, then, she is a person. Would the j-man be allowed to wonder. What about Mohammed?

Bull does have the same taste as you Dan, like cold shoe leather aged in a pirate chest for a 100 years.

He needs some more simmering though until he is done to my taste.

Perhaps one day you guys will buy a vowel or two.

Until then we shall bear with your hobbled language and you can enjoy our green smoke.

When the goat devours the grass it is taking the consciousness contained in the memory called grass to boost the goats consciousness field.

Anyone sitting around a fire burning wood is been warmed by the release of consciousness from the burning wood which in turn creates what is termed as heat.


The descriptive words are flawed and create a false impression of what is at play.


This release of consciousness was known by Indians with their fire pits built to Fibonacci sequencing.

Can either of you imagine being a companion of Mohammed?  

What would you have said to him?

If we are either lucky or unlucky, outside the ‘norm’, there may be cause to ask.

When we pass the beggar in the street, some are wont to observe...... there, but by the grace, go I.

Exactly what I say to you.

I really crack him up.

I am god’s smelly companion.

You guys aren’t in on the joke yet.

You know you are inside the jar if you aren’t laughing.

It only took a smelly goat to show you Wink

One day when you lower yourself to our low position from your great height, we can have a real conversation.

Until then, goat farts by the fire.

Please, smelly, be just a little bit patient with us...... just for a minute......

What do you think when you pass the beggar?  Do you toss a coin in the hat?

Perhaps that’s what you’re doing at OMF....... tossing coins in our hats.

I think, I am the smelly beggar, so you will have to be the one to answer your own question.

We know RB would turn his back for his mountain heights.

Goats were often sacrificed in the fire rituals.
http://sanskrit.org/the-fire-ritual-havanhoma/

The bricks comprising the fire base were built to fibonacci sequencing ( and this is where fibonacci origonates)

The counter rotating fields of consciousness were called male and female.
The male imploding ( penetrating)


Agni was the god of fire.

I’m doing not doing.

I have no idea why I am on OMF.

I am simply here being smelly.

If a muppet came into a bar and said anything, I would fart on him, my greeting and great blessing.

You would argue over the texture and ecumenical and chemical make up of said fart.

You would have to grok the apocalyptic nature of said fart.

My Wu Wei is to be smelly.

Straight on.

Shut up, hobbit, enough of your Fibonacci crap, even if he was your uncle.  

Would your god damned uncle stop to render assistance?

smelly is unable to answer, so maybe hobbit will.

Anyone out there in muppet land have an answer?
