Reopening the Forum
After giving it a lot of thought I’ve decided it’s for the best that the old forum reopen. I’ve received many emails since its closure saying it was the one place where people felt they could shout out whatever they needed to — and get a reply filled with understanding.
Firstly I will need to upgrade the software and cleanse the bot accounts. Once this is taken care of, the forum will be exactly as it was — you will have the same login details, post counts, private messages and everything. However the following conditions must be met before I will reopen the forum.
- 10 guys who can reliably hit jhana. I don’t care which method you use — in fact, the more diverse, the better, as we will be able to cater to different “hardware types”. You need to get in touch with me in the comments section of this post, or via private email, if you think you qualify for this. The new forum is going to be more like a “Sangha” — which was the Buddha’s name for his little gang of helpers. If someone can’t hit jhana via my method, *BOOM* they ask someone who has a mind method and they hit the next level under that guidance which is correct FOR THEM.
- 2 “suicide guys”. I will be around to help on this new forum as much as my schedule allows. However, I am not going to force myself at gunpoint to log in every day and reply compassionately to every single post. Once again, I will do my best with what my time allows. But the purpose of this condition is to have one or two guys who have teetered on the edge of suicide in the past, and have all the insight gained from that tightrope walk act. I’ve been there more times than you can shake a shitty stick at, but I won’t always be “on call”. I need a couple of guys who check the forum regularly and who can chime in with their own experiences regarding this very specific moment within the Dark Night. In my experience, most people just want to be heard at this time. It’s an invaluable compassionate service you can provide.
- 1 magick guy. I personally have two siddhis: intention-manifestation developed to a moderate level, particularly regarding gambling whence I can reliably pluck money out of thin air. I have done this publicly, and have had a PPM member over at my house and shown him it first-hand by performing joint jhanas — an incredibly fun and bonding experience! I also have a poorly-developed mind-control siddhi which, while it works, never fails to create absolute chaos each time I use it. I’ve done some wacky stuff with that one. I won’t be teaching it because it’s Illuminati stuff and some arseholes will use it to control you primitive primates — which they already do anyway. I guarantee that these Freemason organizations exist and that they use ritual to prop up their group intentions. To get back to my point, I want at least one other guy who can talk about siddhis from a place of personal mastery and train others if he sees potential in a pupil and if that is what he desires at the time. I don’t want to have to be the only one talking about siddhis on the new forum.
- 1 moderator. One of the worst things about running a forum was waking up to 30 spam posts a day which I had to disapprove (followed by deleting them from the database). Problem is, deleting them still leaves their record in the database, so we ended up with a bloated database of 15,000 members, 5,000+ of which were spammers. Now, these guys get past the security systems because they’re not actually bots — they’re real humans, usually living in Pakistan, India and Russia. Poor fucks. Their job consists of messing up my day. I cannot think of anything less compassionate. I try to remember their fundamental hardware flaw as I’m deleting them and sending them abusive messages about their whole existence revolving around the worthless goal of posting links to Paul Oakley sunglasses which nobody in their right mind will ever click, yet for which their cocaine-addled paylords will give them a shiny rupee for every shitty account generated. They are the all-singing, all-dancing crap of the world and I am in awe that their limbic system is so easily compromised. DO JHANA. The neocortex is the greatest gift to any organism in our current epoch and as much time as possible should be spent cultivating the tits off it. I will provide moderator training to crush the weevils and eat the shitty biscuit whence they wriggle forth. I’ll also provide an abusive email template listing each way in which that user is fucking up his or her own existence, upon request. 🙂
- 1 “psychology guy”. This individual will be wrapped up in primitive human left-brain models of psychology, better known as the current state of affairs in mental health medicine. They will have some experience of meditation so their advice can extend beyond putting the target on a thorazine drip. Hopefully, they will have used their scientific knowledge to combine Eastern spiritual practice with Western shortsighted gobbledegook and therefore provide some bastard hybrid which nevertheless soothes and progresses those of us inclined toward requiring a higher moral authority under which to make life-altering decisions, even if that authority is the DSM which I believe was literally typed up under the “thousand monkeys with typewriters” experiment. Hey, they also came up with the screenplay for Armageddon, so it’s not all bad! Except that it is, because every Michael Bay film is worse than Hitler.
- 2 “insight guys”. These guys will have knowledge of at least one path, from any Buddhist or yoga school, and be able to help steer the lost members of our flock back toward Nirvana. (The state of mental extinguishment, not the shitty rock band — although “Rape Me” is pretty good if you’re in the mood, which I always am.)
- 1 Mother Hen. This will be a female that, no matter what the poster writes, will always return some soothing words which baseline the reader immediately. These words will involve strong, stable messages invoking love and acceptance, which will not be compromised by other events. Think about the Oracle in The Matrix. I warn you: in a forum filled with lonely twenty-something men, guys WILL fall in love with you. They will end up writing to you just to hear you soothe them. This is true Mother energy. It was always like this, and always SHOULD be like this. Feminists need not apply. We want women in touch with woman-nature, not high-testosterone lesbians spewing man-crap.
- 2 “drug guys”. These people have seen it all — and injected it all, too. They know exactly what to take and when, and what to avoid, especially regarding certain combinations. To this end they need to have a rudimentary knowledge of neuropharmacology. If I see someone writing drug stuff without have looked up the facts or interpreting them usefully to provide solid advice, I WILL put a curse on you. Only joking. Except I can actually do that.
If these criteria are filled — and I really hope they are — we can be a forum again. 🙂
