  1. I love Octavia Butler's Mind of My Mind because her characters use telepathy in an interesting way. I have believed for some time that it was possible we once only used telepathy, and verbal language has been a degeneration away from our purer state of communicating. Basically, something ruined us. Maybe processed food, bad air, bad water, or a disaster on Earth, dunno. Just some thoughts/ideas I play with. @Cynique I learned not too long ago that effect is the proper word when writing effect change. I went through several grammar websites. Effect change means to "bring about" chan

  2. There is an old saying. "Words don't have meaning; people do." I don't know where is comes from, but it is true IMHO. I don't even think telepathy would be any better. How people perceive is a function of the individual. The only way to truly communicate the pain of childbirth is to experience it. However, I doubt every woman experiences childbirth the same exact way. If sharing the same exact experience in not perceived the same universally, had can anything be community universally through the written word -- or even telepathy? I think getting rid of television i

  3. I knew a wizard that used to read people's minds. And talk as if the were speaking. As you can imagine a lot of people didn't like it.

  4. Clairesentience would work better than telepathy. Perhaps it should have regulations akin to alcohol. Since it appears to alter the emotional state.

  5. The bad news is that knowing someone can read your mind, would inhibit your thoughts. Me, i wouldn't want others to be aware of what i'm thinking, especially if it was unflattering to them. This is a natural reaction and if taken to the next level, mental telepathy could be stifling. The "good" news would be that telepathy could lead to training ourselves to only think good things which could lead to a silent Utopian world inhabited by people, all of one mind, on their way to returning to the supreme intelligence from which we originated... Our facades are the cos

  6. Words can get in the way. Thoughts can be things, and maybe at some day in the distant future, we will have evolved to the point where we be able to read other's minds and not have to verbally communicate. @zaji i would be interested to hear if you deliberately used the noun "effect" instead of "affect" which is a verb?

  7. No problem, twin. It is not odd to me. I got into the occult because I was looking for some keys. After a while I realised that was pointless. Or wasn't the purpose of the occult for me. Which radically changed me and my relationship with the occult.

  8. As I writer, I use words to effect change. Yes. Interestingly, it has been this writing life that has led me to see words as a hinderance. Odd, I know. But it is what it is. From what I have observed, the more words we create, it seems there are more problems in the world. The dictionary got bigger and wars increased. But, that's just how I see it. Others may see something else.

  9. @Delano I just finished writing something similar to someone! I was sharing with him how the words will help people make the change. Or as I said, "people will get used to the concept if they see the words as I've written them. " Thank you for co-sign. even if you didn't know it

  12. @Mel Hopkins It is interesting that you posted this. I just responded to something stating that we shouldn't get hung up on the words when it comes to certain things. I have had long discussions with folks on the difference between definition and meaning. This culture is focused on the words in a dictionary and keeping us trapped in that. When in many old world cultures, meaning was what was primary. I try to think in terms of meaning, rather than merely words. Words sometimes confine us, cage us, and keep us unable to see beyond the word itself. We tend not look with

  14. I can't entertain stereotypes -- indeed they are racist. Hey @Mel Hopkins, can you make a graphic of a bald headed brown skinned man lying prostrate from exasperation. Like the woman you posted recently?
