Sorry, just a humorous attempt to lead the conversation away from the last argument. I think I may have misunderstood you somewhere.


And btw I'm not sure what you mean by "misquoting". All I did was take your response and crop out the part leading to the "mental stimulating" without any further edit. If by any way this is "misquoting" by your definition, then you have my sincere apology.

And do you use music to aid your creativity like many artists do?" you would see something like this from him "Yes. No". IDK if he was being lazy or not. The point is that he didn't read between the line and he didn't bother to separate two answers. This threw me off the first time I saw it because I couldn't understand what he was saying. It became a big pattern in his writing and at one point people questioned him if he was intentionally ignoring fans. He started to add more "emotion" in his later mails, and most of the time it was because he was arguing about women, homosexuality and video games.



The most interesting conversation so far is between him and a fan called "Jeffrey Dahmer". Jef wanted some help with his messy house. At one point he said his fridge was so stuffed he was afraid to open it. Pretty sure this was a bait for reaction because everyone knows what's in the real Dahmer's fridge. The autistic guy then told Jef to overcome his fear and open the fridge. The autistic guy didn't usually show concern for people like that, but at the same time he could be oblivious to the fridge hint (he's pretty sheltered as far as I know). So I'm really confused right now, I don't know if I should classify this as the guy failing to read between the line, or a step up from his usual speech pattern

I'm tuning into Jupiter in Capricorn, with implications derived from the 12/12 pattern. It's a type of "mental magic", meaning creating good results without determining what it is you want them to be, specifically.

One thing that really strays me away from this board is that while in theory it should be a refuge from pop astrology and astrological idealizations and generalizations, it really isn't. People still tout around the same ******** you'll read on twitter or tumblr. I wonder if there is any way to truly escape that **** so people can get to the core without muddied waters of baseless nonfacts

That denial/disease is from my perspective not just destructive for the holder of the denial and a recipe for failure, it is also from my understanding this inferiority complex combined with destructive free will choices that are some of the driving factors behind all wars and evil as we know of.

I don't know if it makes me feel sick, but in many ways, I can feel that the core of it is from insecurity. I've been there. I've participated. I understand that insecurity so I can feel it. People really want to feel and think they're geniuses on the internet when they're truly insecure about their intellectual capabilities

I'll do so. I've found so much relevance in astrology before and it's helped me gain insight into myself. I can't deny those distractions surely detract from the experience, but that's just something I have to work through with myself

Gem, that all sounds so multi-layered and confusing. My goodness, it would be challenging for a person to sort through even if s/he wasn’t autistic - involves constant reality-testing! Do you get to talk about any of that when classifying speech? What if a person makes objective progress in speech during an interaction and then realizes they were being trolled, do they regress?
I just felt very old and plodding, reading what you described through my outdated lens of sincerity - Ha

Just for fun, some word-play:

"Oughtistic"--always preoccupied with what you think you SHOULD be doing, instead of enjoying what you ARE doing.

It is supposed to be a refuge for pop astrology.

Well if you have a trained eye you can spot the syndrome in people quite rapidly if they haven't dealt with this issue as it without fail will show up sooner or later in their behavior. It is my understanding that the absolute majority of people have the syndrome which also is one of the major reasons why the majority fail and the few succeed because the majority dont seem have the guts to face the truth, heal and move forward, in my opinion.

The men who are choosing to hold on to it instead in many ways get stucked/ move backwards in life and become feminized wimps who can't move forward in constructive directions and are in many ways useless to themselves and everyone around them from what I have seen. Because thats what choosing to have the syndrome does to men based on what I have seen, it blocks the from my perspective fundamental masculine principle of Moving Forward in my view.

Any man who emphasizes principles of masculinity and uses the term 'feminized' is incredibly insecure. I know you'll debate that, that's ok. But it's quite obvious


Aside from that, none of what you're saying is actually pertinent to my original post

A key here is that you seem to be very very focused on diagnosing others, so much so that you've ticked it down to 'syndromes'. You need to look at yourself more, not others

The horizon and the southern culminating degree are not visible to the naked eye, according to modern astrologers. It is interesting how ancient astrologers managed to find and calculate them unlike outer planets.

If they were visible, no calculating necessary.

What are they calculating? They observed the constellations and planets at the horizon rising at different rates in order to calculate the Ascendant at any point. The Babylonians knew the rising times of the signs with decent precision in this way.

I don't disagree, but as a female who isn't the most feminine woman in the world, it doesn't cause any chronic symptoms of any sort because I'm not overly concerned with societal standards which are largely ********


Granted, I cannot tap into the experience of people who are transgender or transexual

People are people. To be so overly concerned with gender expression forgoes any spiritual truth. Those issues are yours, not anyone else's. If you see some men as "feminized wimps", look into your own personal insecurities with your self expression

People are Both people and their gender from my perspective, not just one or the other which is what some of the radical feminists wants it to be in my opinion.

Why you seem to have the need to attach you and your worldview on my words is your own choice, I would however choose another way of dealing with it if I were in your shoes.
