dukkha Posted March 19, 2011 Report Share Posted March 19, 2011 Hey all, I just got back from a wonderful trip in Europe - so I haven't been around on the forums for a while. I had a rather novel experience while abroad that I will share in a moment. However first, I would like to encourage people to visit this forum more often. We seem to be slowly picking up speed again. The old days of the old forum were pretty great. You could post a topic and expect a thread full of responses to accumulate rather quickly. It was a sport where you could always log into and feel like there was a supportive (although, not to romanticize the old days, there was a fair share of negativity and idiocy) community. So, I would like to see if we can't recreate not only something similar but something even better than before. I myself will be around more often, actively commenting and contributing to discussion where appropriate. I would strongly encourage everyone else to do the same. We are part of a rather peculiar group bound together by a pretty damn incredibly bizarre and terrifying disorder. We can use all the support and help that we are able to offer up to each other. Please let me know what you think about this. On a slightly lighter note, I had a very unusual dining experience in Europe. I ate a three course meal in complete darkness - you couldn't see your hand an inch from your face. All the waitresses were blind. It was quite interesting. My girlfriend was able to, perhaps, understand what my vision is actually like. I asked her to stare into the darkness and tell me if she actually did see only black like she thought she was seeing. Upon inspection, she realized that there was in fact something else there - colors etc. What we REALLY see. Also, it was interesting to see how my mind created an image of the table, the food, the waitress, the layout of the room, the people eating next to us etc. when it didn't have any thing (at least anything visual) to base it off of. Just wanted to share this experience with you all. I think you might be slightly interested. Peace! Dukkha Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
