Hey fellow humans, I would like to share a little bit about how it feels to not absorb mainstream "news" at all. It feels great!
About 20 years ago I stopped watching "news" on TV, stopped reading "news"papers, and took the extra final step: stopped going to "news" sites on the Internet.
Meaning, I stopped even looking at those internet pages containing a bunch of "news" summaries which try to entice people to read this "news" article, or that "news" editorial. For example, when I used to use hotmail or yahoo, I would only go straight to mail, without allowing any "news" summaries to be included in my e-mail checking experience, and closing the window when done, instead of logging out the normal way in which those mail sites try to automatically forward folks to some unrequested "news" summary page, as mentioned above. And now I simply use Thunderbird, so there is zero chance of "news" being flashed in my face when checking for e-mails from friends.
So what have I been enjoying instead for the past 20 years? Well, before finding the treasure chest of reading material here, I was reading on the internet each night as much as possible close-but-no-cigar sites: various far out, alternative, non-mainstream, non-approved, forbidden, hidden, contrarian (it's interesting that contrarian is not an official word, haha) contrarian information+opinions, taking in the sacred herb daily (man I gotta' start growing so that it becomes free), occasionally listening to Bob Marley, and for a while there, watching Japanese TV shows (but comedies only, no "news".)
Actually, I watched those Japanese comedy shows for only 7 years, and during those 7 years I played only with non-English-speaking Japanese friends, and that is how I became fluent in Japanese by around 2003.
Then, in 2003, since I had become satisfied with my level of Japanese speaking ability (I can speak quite fluently, faster than the average Japanese person's processor can keep up with, so I have to purposely slow it down for them, haha) from that point I stopped watching TV altogether.
Then, I re-opened myself back up to having English-speaking friends, and I began downloading English-language shows+movies, again mainly comedies. So does that mean I was back to "watching TV"? Well, it's a whole different experience, in my opinion, because actively downloading means only seeing the images I choose to see, WITHOUT the big minus of actually "watching TV".
The big minus of "watching TV" of course, is that people passively sit and allow themselves to absorb ANY images which the channels decide to throw at you from moment to moment suddenly: commercials for products, commercials for other shows, commercials for upcoming "news", sudden "news" breaking into the show you were watching, etc., when all you really wanted was to watch the specific show/movie you had set out to watch in the first place, with your favorite actors/comedians making some jokes to help you laugh.
So when you instead just actively download the specific show/movie you want to watch, that's exactly what you get, just that show/movie, nothing else, so this active selection feels to me totally different from that old awful experience of passively "watching TV".
So for a long time now, the only "news" that has entered my eyes has been when I would go to my old favorite contrarian sites and see folks pointing out all of the fraudulent-sentences which THEY had found (because they still watch mainstream "news", either on TV or on the Internet, although they hate it)...
...and now here at my new most-loved contrarian site, seeing folks reporting about all of the forged-images which YOU folks have found (because you lovely folks still watch mainstream "news", either on TV or on the Internet, although you hate it.) :-)
So, I no longer have a desire to go to those old sites, because those people stupidly assume that the "events" they discuss are actual events, and because those people stupidly assume that the "photos/videos" they discuss are actual photos/videos.
Nowadays, I only want to hear the opinions of humans who have enough honesty and intelligence to be able to admit that most(close to all) of the "photos/videos" in the "news" are forged. The only place with this level of honesty and intelligence is here at CluesForum in my opinion.
So, I want to thank you all, for the fact that you folks continue to watch the "news" so that you can continue to report here the "news" frauds+forgeries which you notice and prove daily.
And now, I would like to suggest that sometimes one might want to take a day off, or a week off, or maybe even a month off, from watching any "news" programs.
I hear warning bells going off now, "Hey wait a second, this guy is suggesting we stop watching the 'news', well if we do that, how are any discoveries going to be made here and presented to help wake up humanity to the fact that 'news' media owners are releasing fraudulent-sentences and forged-images? Are you trying to REDUCE the CluesForum's future daily discovery rate?"
No, not at all, I don't want to see any slow down in new discoveries, far from it, I love all the new discoveries, I'm thankful for every one! What I mean is, I'm hoping to slightly increase your level of happiness, be sharing the fact that one can live very happily without watching the "news" everyday.
I'm not suggesting everyone stop watching the "news" at the same time, because that would definitely slow down the CluesForum daily discovery rate to zero.
I'm simply suggesting you guys give your eyes a rest every now and then, from the barrage of bullshit which you know all of those "news" programs on TV and on the Internet are pumping out.
Perhaps a person might occasionally post, "I'm taking a break from news watching this week, keep up the good work everyone!" and then when that person returns to the work of "news" watching, then perhaps a different person might post, "Alright, I'm gonna' take MY one week break now." Basically a rotation of the guards, occasionally allowing a few guards to rest their weary eyes, while the other guards keep the vigilant watch.
I guess I'm kinda' sounding egotistically high and mighty, "Hey, look at me, I don't watch 'news' anymore, I'm no longer addicted, you guys are still kinda' addicted, you should cut back a little. Be more like me, a person who doesn't watch, and hasn't watched, a 'TV news' or 'Internet news' program, for about 20 years."
I could go even further, bragging about my simple life which is different from most people, by mentioning the other unhealthy actions which I don't do: I have never smoked tobacco, haven't eaten animals in the past 34 years, haven't drunk alcohol or coffee or cola in the past 14 years, haven't owned a car in the past 8 years (electric-bicycle works just fine), haven't owned a pocket-radio-frequency-transmitter-brain-cancer-causing-cellphone in the past 7 years (just leave a message on my land-line-phone, I'll call you back when I arrive home from work), etc. So yeah, there are lots of unhealthy addictions which I recommend people let go of. I'm just saying that folks might also want to consider reducing the amount of "news" watching.
Just an idea.
By the way, each time I finish reading the newest discoveries in the most recent posts, I then go diving back into the older 900 threads already existing here (http://cluesforum.info/search.php?st=0& ... &start=900
). For example, on page 8 of that link (a link which could be entitled "Show, just the title, of every thread ever, in chronological order, based on each thread's most recent post time") on page 8 I recently found this gem, in which Brian casually dropped a little link, like it was no big deal, which when Simon went and checked it out, it became instantly clear that Brian had already realized there the "9-11 victims" were in fact simulated vicsims way back in March of 2005!
It is totally thanks to Brian's post there, in March 2005, at Phil'sLongTimePlaneHugging site, that someone became inspired to actually send the FOIA request, which provided the proof that the twin towers were basically 75% barren from 1973 to 1998 (and even then, from 1998 to 2001, the only increase in tenants was obviously merely on paper.)
To summarize it better, Brian posted evidence of vicsims in early 2005, which then led to the FOIA request, which proved that the twin towers were in fact the world's largest atriums ever built, which led to helping previous-believers-of-building-victims (like I once was) to realize that there where no building victims, which led to helping previous-believers-of-dustification (like I once was) to realize that the 75% lack of steel beams in the rubble can be explained WITHOUT any dustification justification, which led to me coming back to see how far Simon and his crew had progressed in their research, which led to me realizing that the bottom line is that the "rubble images" and the "exploding from the top like a volcano and dustifying on the way down videos" are ALL completely 101 minutes of a CGI movie played on the "news" while the normal bottom-up safe controlled-demolition occurred. So thanks to Brain *
and Simon and Hoi for really waking us all up, I mean REALLY waking us up, more fully than ever, and helping us let go of so many unneeded old incorrect beliefs.
I guess my goal, when I started writing this post, was simply to say: now that everyone here has woken up to the fact that mainstream media is all forged CGI images, perhaps you folks might want to let go (a little) of the old habit of watching mainstream media so much.
But please don't all stop watching at the same time, because then we won't have any new discoveries!
So take an occasional break, but keep the discoveries coming in please. I'm totally grateful for the fact that you folks are doing the work, of watching so much programming, so that armchair readers like me can come and enjoy the gems you keep finding!
That is all.
Love & Gratitude -
Just an observer :-)
