Dear Mr. Scrooge,
That was not an admonition or insult. It was a caring head's up, a thoughtful tug of the coattails, a friendly warning.

As for your threatening orders, it sounds like you are reliving your domineering criticism of the defenseless at your old school.

There is a good person here, not your servant.

THERE ARE NO ANSWERS or conclusions for everything but instead everything is a kind of continuum. Whether we look out into space or deep into consciousness we are sometimes tempted to make a theory of everything or find the answer for the beauty of the universe but we probably will not solve the mystery. We have unraveled some of the ingredients and laws of how they fit together but there is no one overarching truth. We can make inroads into the mystery of Gravity but it may be possible to get closer however some people will give up and just blame/praise God.
I can view our lifetime as brief as the appearance of virtual particles popping into existence within the fullness of cosmological time. I can almost conceive of infinity. It is up to your POV to view demonstrable but hidden fields in our universe. The LHC is looking for extra dimensions. Dimensions we do not see is not a strange idea.
The confluence of the obvious nature of time and then knowing what time actually is , is a mystery. We know what time does but not
what it is. Perhaps you thought we should know more than we do. Cosmology is the science of speculation. Even Astrophysics has to leap to assumptions.

But this is about consciousness. Actually, panpsychism is the more boring straight forward of the possibilities. Other more rarified notions are often religious concepts of consciousness fields.

The Magic Of Reality is one of my favourite Richard Dawkins books. The title alone is a great way of putting the wonderful diversity of beauty of the natural world, but he doesn't diss fantastical myths and stories out of hand. There's plenty of room for flights of imagination, but real science supported by real evidence is beautiful in itself. What isn't beautiful is when flights of imagination solidify into repressive forces such as religion and political dogma, in the words of Brian McNeill using the Power and the Glory to keep us all in line...

I am a fan of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. I had a short fantasy story published. I believe in the everyday magic, like sunsets,children and laughter, that occurs around us all the time. So not quite as you put it. Which brings me back to the point I keep making. We are on different levels. Neither are any better or worse, just different. It makes sensible communication impossible so I will just go back to letting it flow over me.

It's ironic that you should say that when that last post of yours, along with many others, is so suffused with the lamentations of your own victimhood. Because your input is frequently so error-strewn, unfocused and often downright risible, I'm tempted to think that I shouldn't keep on at you. After all, the others here don't need any of the others among us to see what you're really about, sadly.

While the Donuel Steve feud is microscopic and childish I see the larger issue of dehumanization and toxic tactics of right-wing Republicans, whose aim is to own the left, in my country. When I say right-wing I mean fascist propaganda.

As of late, I can not make a comment without an automatic condemning Steve response. This is his unedited behavior for years. His disinformation is but temporary.      
I did not know I was so dangerous to his mindset or paradigms.
Attacks even on Senofou turned out to be a third rail Steve could not touch. I on the other hand am accused of a BS lifetime and prevarication of all that is sacred to science.

His pendulum swing between victimization and dehumanization is indicative of authoritarian techniques. Polemics aside people will decide to believe as they will. I choose to unravel controversial subjects and am accustomed to such heckling. Thank goodness scientists have prevailed over such robomatic nay sayers.

The only thing that can limit a person in life is their own vision.
People can rise from the lowest positions of life to great heights depending on their vision, not the distractors

With my experience in hypnosis, I have warned about the susceptibility of the human mind to misinformation and conspiracy theories. If you do not remember this over the decades there is something wrong with the usual suspects with no cure.

The question was raised regarding if I believe I am special, which I can not know since I will never know the complete consciousness of others however if you ask if I have had special experiences, the answer is absolutely yes. I have witnessed incidents that defy current physics. I have met and conferred with scientists and astrophysicists
at their homes and establishments. I have been exposed to documents by Bigalo Aerospace. I have reviewed thousands of examples of evidence and hypnotized hundreds of experiencers on video which failed to provide any tangible proof. I have had more experience regarding the ufo phenomenon than the rest of you put together.
Apparently, I have had other experiences others have not had. Experiences make us all different and unique.
If I had a Fritz Zwicky personality it would not have resulted in meeting some great composers and conductors as well as fabulous musicians. I suspect Steve is a bevy short of meeting some great mentors.

Don'l belongs here as much as anyone else. I do not mean to sound condescending, I simply don't care that I do. There's a great internetty word for Don'ls favorite type of subject:

"Deepity"

It can be fun, it can be interesting. Like "Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy" rating of Earth, it is "mostly harmless".

Just remember it's relationship to reality, or topical information may be tenuous, such as when Don'l tries to explain something technical or warn you of current events at the same time as accurately warn you of current events and, of course, correct any inaccuracies.

I long ago left Don'l to his own personal Snopes, whoever that may be. It is not me.

the controversial area of whether human pheromones still work after all these millions of years.

In the science world the only controversy is the word pheromone as a single synthesise-able entity.

There have been many experiments and statistical surveys that point to a combination of nebulous scents that make sense (pun intended). eg

the amount of bare flesh that women might wear at estrous
and the contention that women are more receptive at that time (& more fertile)
Surveys that show women (without knowledge) will favour the part of a park bench that men have sat on previously. & vice cersa.
There was a website that sold womens' underpants (worn for 1 day), and it proved popular.
Experiments with T-shirts worn for a day and presented to the opposite sex with telling questionairs following.

the amygdala/olfactory system often works at the unconscious level.

Completely mad, poor chap. Anyway, there's a nice comet to see with the unromantic name C/2022 E3, currently passing by and just above the handle of the Plough towards the Pole Star. It's green and fuzzy and might brighten up enough by the turn of the month to be a decent naked eye object. My brain didn't really work to find it tonight, which is clear and starry and away from light pollution where we live. Wrap up warm. I have a pair of Carl Zeiss Jena 8x30 binoculars that I bought new 45 years ago for £30. They are the real deal, not one of those thousands of fake CZJs that infest the market. They are absolutely top dog for a bit of casual astronomy. I hadn't a clue how good they were when I bought them. You can't beat naked eyes for meteor showers but the bins are brilliant for comets and for Jupiter's moons. You just need to know exactly where to look, that's all. Grr.

Before the (pre trial) Grand Jury concludes I will bring to evidence how Steve strongly objects when I am civil, friendly, or respectful to acquaintances of his. That he finds this irksome goes to prove his desire to Troll and acquire a consensus of his hate.
My belief is that there has always been a greater consensus for simple civility however, hate seems to make stronger bonds than love among certain conspiracy theory groups.
