Saw a post elsewhere about what was the best decade for horror movies.

For myself I can't decide between the 70's and 80's. Guessing everyone has a favourite period, possibly connected to when they were growing up.
Dam. That is hard. On a personal, gut level-the 1970's, because, like you said.

My godson is spending the night here tonight after going downtown with us to an event, and compared to his former ways he is refreshingly less timid. He's no longer afraid to go into rooms alone and he doesn't give off a Cole Sear vibe. Either he's matured and gained confidence, or (and I am keeping an open mind) has been replaced by a body snatcher.

Pondering the redundancy of days & weeks, I'm left to conclude reincarnation must suck....

It might be necessary for full growth as a person to experience various lives. Only after experiencing multiple lives would someone be ready to move to a higher plane altogether. 

Plus it makes more sense that one life followed by eternal hell/heaven.

Reincarnation makes a lot of sense and I spent years trying to accept its reality and sometimes coming close. In fact it makes more sense when it comes to explaining inequality and tragedy than any system except the one that says we're all biological beasts that die with our bodies and brain waves and end.

It'd be downright depressing to think that after I die I would have to come back as the life I saw the one and only time I tried hypnotic progression (taking you into future lives) when I was eighteen.

I can tell you this, I do not want to come back as the scared little kid I saw from a first-person perspective, hiding behind burning machinery in a village full of screaming people, ultimately getting gunned down during a war in a dusty African town seventy-whatever years from now, which is what I saw waiting for me next time around in the weirdest, most stressful hypnosis session I ever undertook.

I'd rather burn out into nothingness, nirvana in one lifetime, and be just plain dead than go through that.

I came home that day afterward all freaked out as I had never been with hypnotic regression and told the man I was living with all about it, and because he didn't believe in reincarnation or hypnosis, only in a vague, almost Protestant version of Jesus for someone with a Jesuit education, he said I had such an over-developed imagination I could scare myself with it.

I said I guess, and we left it there.

Shrug. And now he knows what it's like to be dead. Assuming the dead can know anything. His dad was terrified he went to Hell because he died so suddenly, and that fear....drove him half insane for months, and in the middle of the night he used to call me sometimes and ask me to tell him again what his son said about his belief in Jesus, looking for some hope that some spark of faith within his son might have made a difference.

And THAT is the cruel dark side of Catholicism, friends and neighbors, the terror that those you loved might have died out of grace. I think if you can believe in Heaven and believe your loved ones are there, you'll be happiest. (Not to open a debate, just saying.)

Like I said in another post tonight, enjoy life while you have it, that's about the best you can do. (And dear God, don't let violent death in the Horn of Africa someday await me, lol.)

I just hope my shrink really looks into that EMDR therapy I've been asking about...........

If you can't get EMDR from this therapist, it might be worth going elsewhere, because EMDR has worked well for people I know who are seeking treatment for PTSD.

I don't know if you are familiar with the tapping aspects of EMDR that accompany or supplant the REM segments but they're similar to Chinese tap shua exercises and there are instructional videos for self-treatment available online, with the goal of the exercises to re-route the energy of memory.

It might be worth looking into.

If BMDO'ers were to get together and make a (bad) movie I wonder what the plot would be.

The reason I reject most abrahamic religions, especially the various strains of christianity and islam, is that the idea of hell is just impossible to accept. If a dog bit a man and that man poured gasoling on that dog and set it on fire we'd call him evil, sadistic, scum, etc. But god condemns everyone to suffer eternal agony in hell forever and that's a "perfect" plan. No, jut no.

If some god exists,and as an agnostic i can't say either way, he has to be held to a higher standard than man, not a lower one.

Honestly the whole concept of hell as  a lake of fire evolved as a way of justifying whatever it took to push christianity, as it was "saving people" from the boogey man it created.

The christian/mulsim concept of god makes him worse than many humans, not better.

This video kinda sums up some of the ways I see things. Basically a Christian, a muslim and an atheist die and meet god. No one gets what they were expecting.
