Title: Plans for Ancient Mysteries
Post by: Dawn Moline on December 12, 2007, 10:19:58 pm
The forum is doing great, and I would like to congratulate everyone for it's success, everyone of you has played a part.

I admit that I do grow sentimental about our set up at the Ancient Mysteries forum and, being a sentimental person, here is what I intend to do:  take this particular forum and recreate it with all the posts we had in our earlier version of it (with the original author of the old topic starting these copies anew). 

That shall mean a lot of copying of past words, from old friends, and yet, what can I say?  I do not wish to lose any of it. It will be a lot of work, might take years, and I have asked others to help me with it.

There will be new versions started of each topic I shall be creating elsewhere in the forum.  Feel free to express thoughts in those as well as these shall be simple remembrances of the past, of times long since gone, old friends, perhaps forgotten by all but me.

Cheers,

Dawn

The original "Meaning of Existence" has been copied, in it's entirety, 306 posts. 

It's interesting how the names of the posters change over the span of it's two years, from the past posters who have dropped out of sight, to the more current ones.

I drew the "Morality" topic.  I wonder why somebody thought of that one for me?  :D

Yes, you wonder.   ::)

Inner Harmony & the Pathway to Spiritual Peace completed - 90 posts!

I intend to copy some of my favorites of mine, too.

Some of these do bring back the memories!  Wonder what Vlad is up to these days?   :D

Great work, everyone, and yes, some of it does tend to stir some memories.

The only one I won't help with is Origins of Love, that one hits a bit too close to home.

Good job on everything so far, Dania & Chelsea.

Peace,

Veronica

I think it's great to see this group effort.

As many of you all know already, this is one of my favorite groups of people anywhere on the internet.
Collectively, you have all done a wonderful job with this forum and I hope to see more from all of you.
Admin., kudos to my sisters... LOL

What are some of your fonder memories?
We've all had some serious discussions and I for one am always up for that.
However, I am also open to how many of these discussions have stirred real emotion.
Let's take the origions of love for example.
I actually bared my soul at a very personal level to help others understand a few different things I was trying to express.

What was the one time you were actually taken in by something someone posted? Something that really touched you, or caused you to feel what they were saying.
This question is for everyone too by the way so if you have one such moment you would like to share. I'm all ears!
 ;D

I guess the point of doing this is because, I like getting deep.
Not everyone is up for expressing themselves in open book form because they aren't comfortable doing that.
However, I have found that sharing my thoughts with strangers is easier and more enlightening then sharing these things with local personal associations. I'm curious about everyone, and their worlds, feelings, experiences. 
I consider many of you friends and I guess I'd like to know you all better.
That's all. I would love to talk to many of you here in the forum like you would talk to a friend on a phone or in a letter.

In any case, I'm here and ready when you are....

If I may Veronica, in what way does this one subject affect you?
If you don't wish to say then I can respect that. I'm just asking because I could feel a kind of repelling from what you posted.
It caught my eye so I thught I'd ask.  :)

Question:

What is the most interesting topics of then vs. Now?

I ask because this is more a matter of opinion vs. stats.
For me, it's the Origions Of Love (origional), and Future Science.

Merlin's thread in Supressed Knowledge (don't remember the name of it) at Atlantis Rising and the Ley Line thread here.

Post by: Bianca on February 16, 2008, 06:21:00 pm





Ah, the Ley Lines, Unk. 

Mdsungate is amazed that it hasn't been touched since he had to leave.

He can't wait to get back to it with you, so get ready.....

Speaking of ley lines..

I can also remember bits and peices of mercury driven air vehicals.
And then the subject of the LC!?.

 ::) Hmmm
Now is there any connections between these things?


Title: Re: Plans for Ancient Mysteries
Post by: HereForNow on March 22, 2008, 10:08:45 am
I'm not sure if everyone will agree with me about this, however I was thinking.
(Can hear everyone saying uh-oh)

Anyhow, we have a ton of great subjects. Yet we have a ton of sub-catagories that have these sujects widely dispersed. My suggestion is; Consolidate! Within ancient mysteries, Thing like Egypt, Atlantis, Mu and other ancient places could be consolided into one sub-catagory. Many other subjects kinda fall into the same subcatagories much the same.

I guess the idea is to simplify.


Title: Re: Plans for Ancient Mysteries
Post by: Europa on March 22, 2008, 03:13:39 pm
I totally agree with the idea to simplify, Herefornow, but the question has always been, just how to do that?  All the categories here have been requested by one person or other, are usually pretty active, and there are a lot of students and researchers here that contribute to them regularly.

So, we've been resistant to be too radical with redoing the design because of those kinds of considerations.  I totally see where you're coming from, though.  Maybe just stick to a few categories and ignore the rest if that's what works best for you?

All the best,

Europa

I would like to thank everyone for contributing to carrying the old posts over to here, our new home.  Didn't I mention that it would take years?

I have more ideas. Let us make this Ancient Mysteries forum as much like the old one as we can, meaning that we also carry all the old topics from that forum, in chronological order, into here.  I know it is a big job, but I have a feeling that they will be lost in time after the old forum does it's next "purge."

Cheers,

Dawn

Dawn, is there anything you would like to see happen above and beyond?
 :) I like to shoot big because then even half way gets alot done.


Title: Re: Plans for Ancient Mysteries
Post by: mdsungate on January 08, 2009, 07:35:00 pm
              :)Did I hear “Ley Lines” and “Merlin?” Unknown?  LOL.
HereForNow remembers “bits and pieces of mercury driven air vehicles”
Yes Dawn, I’m back.  And “Ancient Mysteries” is probably what draws a lot of us here.  The desire to know the unknown, or perhaps better put, to relearn what has been lost to time.
   And the unknown is a very controversial thing, isn’t it? (No pun intended Unknown).  It draws in the cynics and the believers alike.  Naming something as broad a title as “Ancient Mysteries” is like throwing a hook into the water.  We don’t know what we’re going to catch.  Like the series “In Search of Ancient Mysteries” it can cover everything from Noah’s Ark to the Great Seal on the Dollar bill.  
   So how would you organize something this diverse?  It becomes by its very essence the branches of a great oak tree.  I know I always find myself jumping back and forth between threads because the topics seem to cross over and pertain to one another.  For instance, take Bianca’s new thread on the 13th power point in the Atlantis Power Grid.  We have Ley Lines, Tesla, Atlantis (of course), and a myriad of other topics that can pertain like archeology and geological explanations of the location.  
            My favorite technique is to first look at replies to my own posts.  When that hasn’t happened I scroll down the list of topics on the main page and look for the friends I know and where they’re posting things.  I can't count Bianca there, there are too many to choose from, LOL.
            Maybe an easier technique than rewriting all the old posts would be to do what Google and other web sites do.  Which is to place links at the bottom which say something like: “If you like this topic, perhaps you would enjoy this similar topic”, or something along that order. ;)

I do that with my own posts sometimes, only I am always afraid of being 'pushy'......

But if others start doing it, it will become the norm.

I think you got a great idea there, Sungate!!!

But what do the mods think?   :)

Hey MDsun, is there any way I could order an 41A313778AEP1? (Consumables)
 ;)
I'm also going to need an 84A523567G1......(Eng Consul.)

I checked the database.  Those drawing numbers aren’t in the system, LOL.  But we’re not allowed to upload the classified designs.  I have to admit, when I look at these designs, I’m lost, LOL.  But when it calls for Cadmium, I know it’s nuclear. 

So what do you plan to do with it?  Power your spacestation? LOL.  I’ll get back to the private enterprise to Mars shortly.  “B” has me reading about as much information as can handle, just to catch up on what I’ve missed!   ;)
