    “All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.” (Spoken by Gandalf - J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring.)
  1. I've noticed this trend for a while now, so I wouldn't conclude it has anything to do with the update (specifically). It's either personal blogs, the election, or lounge posting, as you've said. I'm taking a break now myself, simply because there doesn't seem to be anyone around anymore. I'll tune in from time to time, surely.
  2. Maybe someday. I'm still playing the on the Wii and Xbox 360 (maybe once or twice a month). I haven't even looked at current gen yet. It will probably be "last gen" by the time I get to it. Lol.
  3. Never played any of them, but they looked good. I guess it's one of those things where you have to be at the right place at the right time, to catch the bus while it's there. By the time I realized what was, most had moved onto new things. It's still possible for me to give it a spin, but I've been out of the loop in terms of gaming for a while now. I don't really want to get invested into anything. Edit: The last I've played that I really enjoyed were the Tomb Raider Reboot and Bioshock Infinite. Maybe one day, I'll play the second instalment in the Tomb Raider reboot.
  4. I've read some of the the Robot Series stories. Asimov is one of my key reference points when it comes to sci-fi.
  5. Agreed. Those who can truly appreciate that, are the ones that have sat on either side of the coin. It's something I realize I may be lacking, perspective wise. I want a good match, if any. I realize that analysis alone may not be the answer to deciphering exactly what that may comprise, I don't know how to get away from that powerful tendency, however, to just "jump in" and not think about it. Confidence, in the now, is something that is built through a body of past experiences and acquired skill. My lack thereof has not permitted me to acquire any confidence in this arena, and my withholding of such won't make things any easier in the future. My natural tendency is to tinker and experiment. I will only do so (freely) if I feel safe enough to do so, without reprisal. I think that, somewhere in the back of my mind, I calculated that the risks (in this arena) were too cumbersome to deal with. But I understand that there is no such thing as risk free, just comfortable risk taking.
  6. Nope. Never had one. I used to role-play a lot, however. This goes without mentioning that I did create a lot of fictional characters, in my head, which I grew to be very fond of. Identification, projection, and all that jazz.
  7. Asked a question this time (about love, meaning and fulfillment in life) and this is what it gave me. Somewhat less pessimistic than the first time over. Both had their applicable and non applicable parts.
  8. "Transracial" can be understood in the sense of "transcending race," and to consequently define yourself outside of such constructs. Essentially, you stop referring to yourself and others in terms of that specific social construct.
  9. You're supposed to ask a question?
  10. ENTJ. Clearly extroverted. Caleb was likely INTJ. ---------- Post added 10-10-2016 at 05:41 PM ---------- Just watched it again, a couple of nights ago. The movie is rich for food for thought.
  11. I'm much the same. If given the proper "playground," I can get a kick out of experimenting, to find out what works and what doesn't. I'm a natural experimenter, and in many ways, it's how I learn best. But I will only experiment if I feel safe. If not, I turtle up. That's a good point, worth underlining. I probably just need to try more things, at this stage. New things, that I actually feel inspired enough to try. It takes a lot to get me going, but when I get some momentum, I tend to do well for myself. ---------- Post added 10-10-2016 at 05:26 PM ---------- Edit: On Inspiration and Drive: Nearly every day, I am reminded of life by a burning urge--an urge to create and define realities. To build worlds, and interact with them. I deeply desire to fully become a part of them, to live within them. It's something that compels me, to get out of bed every day. It's not a want, it's a need. It's an instinct. I do it automatically, even when I'm not paying attention. I get a sense that, I'm holding a torrent back, a firestorm, waiting to be unleashed...if only given the chance, the opportunity, the means to exert it in the way that it asks to be exerted. So I know I need to catapult off that, somehow.
  12. The assumption is understandable, coming from the outside, but it is false. It's not apathy, nor is it indifference. I'll tell you and the forumites what it is: it's faith and confidence. I lack confidence, I lack faith. That's all it is. Well, I appreciate the honesty, Carnal. Trust me, I'm aware of my problems. I know that I am my own worst enemy at times. Most of the time. Try to understand that when I make these threads, it's not to frustrate the community, but it's an active manifestation of that inner duel. Typing it out allows me to understand myself better, from the outside in. Through that understanding, I strive to gain to tools that I need to overcome my inner shackles. I hope you understand now. Edit: So even when you see we lock-up and reject a proposal, that's just a part of me testing the other part. I'm testing myself. I'm trying to identify those tender spots, and then, only then, can I see what I can do about them.
  13. Understanding is the first step towards action, Carnal. I'm sure you know this. I sure others do, as well. Again, I'm quite aware of you and your technique, and that it works for you. Good. That's good. I'm glad to hear it. But understand this: the difference we have, manifested in thinking (and therefore action), implies the necessity of a tweaked model, for it to work on my end. If I was like you, I'd have done it your way, a long time ago. It may have worked, but that's irrelevant now, because I'm not you. I need to find out what works for me, and only me. Certainly it will require changes on my end, maybe less premeditation, and certainly more risk taking leading to more action. But how I get there, and how I make it work, that's my journey (not yours). It's something that I will figure out and decide, on my own terms. I'm gonna do it my way, because that's the only way it will ever work.
