I have this, so does my mother and my daughter. It does make you accident prone, but more so clumsy rather than major accidents. I've also noticed a correlation with attracting people that can be aggressive towards you, as it would be opposite the descendant/your 7th house most of the time.

I know have numerous friends and family married to a man named, Tom. Fact is, if I forget your husband's name, I could go with, Tom, and have decent odds of getting it right.

Gemini factoid.

I find people jumping in to finish my sentence if a pause to search for word or consider within the train of thought . It feels presumptive and I feel annoyed. I'm not having a senior moment, I have Mercury conjunct Saturn dammit lol

@warped I can't say. Sorry. You know how some people put titles of their books on display? I'm the opposite, especially now.

We're in a situation where you "follow" something or someone,  people tag you with whatever they think the thing is, when you may be following for entirely different reason.

I just don't want to get in any skirmishes (or worse).  There is just way too much going on here at this time.

I probably shouldn't have posted this but it just shocked me. I had mentioned the book to a friend and she saw the news... I was literally reading it the night before...

See, the are very, very quickly eradicating information / cutting us off from actual wisdom experience. So this is like the story shutting down while I'm still in it. It SHOCKED me; rapidly advancing crushing..

It's like it slow slow slow but then it's fast. We very near the fast part so if you want to learn anything, make haste, and that's a fact.

That's okay, I totally agree.  Glad I took the time to look into who's banning what -- it's astounding.  

Just heard that 51 new "news outlets" have recently been created by one group in US, all spreading identical propaganda now disseminated as factual journalism by the beneficiaries of this "reportage."

@warped image search tells all. But you have to think.

@elsa About three years ago I was following someone and they had a book coming out. I put it on my Amazon list to sort of bookmark it so I would know when it came out. Well, all the publishers ended the deal. I feel like the decision for me to read the book was taken away from me.

@allie120 Well, this is a very special book and I've had it for awhile but it's hard to read.  It's hard for a lot of reasons but it's mostly because every paragraph is totally engrossing and worthy of discussion. Like I highlight every paragraph, or copy and send to friends and then sit and ponder.  Like I am trying to get it... into my head.

It's written by an older man (dead now); it took him 50+ years to get it together. He's not American. It's his life's work.

So I read a paragraph and I'm just stunned at how clear his thinking.  He's so far beyond his modern peers, it's as if he's another species.

The book begins with the man in college.  He notices something about one of his professors... some of his peers notice the same thing but most students do not.  This small group winds up digging into this material for their entire lives but they die and such. 

As an example, I read a single paragraph and start swearing about it. Because how can he know things and state them as if the knowledge is common? I know he's right, just by personal experience, but when I try to present something to... anyone, they look at me like a hog looking at a wristwatch.   I want to talk to this guy!!!!  Or someone like him!

But there may not be someone like him anymore so people like me have to read and absorb his work so the knowledge isn't lost.

It's a bit more complicated. The guy was dying and trying to get the work out there. The person he gave it to was successful in publishing it but this person is annoying as fuk and triggering to people. 

I really do have an open mind. I don't care where I get my information, provided it's correct.  This guy caught on  to something young and stuck with it his whole life.  I know what that's like.

Anyway, I would like to retire and just read this book. I can't do that but I can't do that and so far... well I crack it open and read the same paragraph I closed it on and have the same reaction... I put it down to think! This has been going on a long while. 

I guess I will get it eventually.  When I had a person who likes to think and enjoys sociology and psychology, visiting, I read his random paragraphs... he had the same reaction.

Bottom line, it's a unique book and should not be banned... they just don't want anyone to read anything that might clarify things or actually help a person to understand something. All crap, all the time. Pop culture... veneer. No need to lift the doily. Sounds dangerous.

Since this came up, I'm thinking about a book club.  Not sure I can read this book in a timely fashion but at least there could be a conversation.  Right now, I just get pissed. And I have a reason...

I have been trying to inform people (this is real life, personal) about something so damned important for YEARS. They cannot hear me.  So then I pick up this book and the man writes about how everyone in his field (psychology) is well acquainted with my situation,,, he goes on to explain MY situation, which I have explained to fifty people at least. ONE person has understood me and they're not a professional. 

So I put the book down and just try to grasp the situation.  They all understood this forty years ago but now no one knows anything. WTF happened to the knowledge? The competence? Chunks of common knowledge has passed away!

So you can see how this is a big question.  If I was in my situation in 1960, it would have taken me ten minutes to explain.  Now 700,000 hours won't do the trick.

You see how I write about problem solving all the time. I'm sorry but it's a lost skill and this man knows why this happened and how to stop it.  I can learn about it if I can get past these paragraphs.  My God, he just lays it out.

We really live in such a hazy fog. I have a decent understanding of how it got this way and why but I don't know what he does. because of this time and his age and also because his experience is so unique.

I think you just wrote about your husband getting on to something when he was young. Same thing. Same thing with me as well. 

If you're like this, there's nothing you can do. You're designed for something and you've just got to do it.  And if you find someone who has invested their entire life on something, they are definitely going to be a source.

@elsa I see exactly what you’re saying…I mean, this resonates as an undercurrent. Simply from how you’ve described it and your feelings about it, I’m so intrigued. It’s like a piece of a puzzle.

It also makes me think of all the other voices silenced. 😒

I am very intrigued. Thanks for sharing even though it’s a limited topic now.

@allie120 Well, I think the banning may create "the Streisand Effect"... or not.  So much is up in the air as far as how things will play out.

Regarding being silenced, I just heard the phrase, "participated in a vile conversation".  You can get in trouble for this...

I don't know if people realize the definition of "vile" can change overnight.

@elsa Hey, the Streisand Effect certainly got me. 

My ears have been perked in changing words’ definitions game when I first noticed it maybe 20 years ago but it’s only escalated in the last 10 maybe and it’s on turbo in the past 3 years. 

I keep hard copies of dictionaries. I encourage others to give any children in their lives hardcopy dictionaries, particularly ones that are not new new if possible.

I think I found it (J.N.), but not sure since it was banned three years ago?  If it is, fortunately it's still obtainable elsewhere though not easy to find.  Needs more publicity, but sounds like a solid approach addressing a primary cause which is the common backstory in examples I've known.  Hope it covers other damaging manifestations stemming from such causes also.
