Unexpected Contact Guidelines

2021.09.25 02:59 think_and_chitter Unexpected Contact Guidelines

TL:DR; Please offer your opinions on any/all of the questions below. I will go over them and attempt to make a future post summarizing the combined suggested guidelines for you to approve. Inspired by u/HBF0422's post "I was visited" and others, I've decided to enlist your help in order to come up with suggested guidelines on how to interact with unidentified beings when contact is unexpected, communication is lacking, and intentions may not be clear. In this situation, feelings of fear, anxiety, and resistance are natural, but may also negatively influence the experience for everyone involved. Below I am going to ask a few questions that I think best summarize the dilemmas initiated by unexpected and opaque contact. Hopefully, if we put our heads together and come up with good guidelines, they will help anyone who remembers them in a real life situation. We can do our planning and rationalizing now, so that we aren't caught unprepared when the paranormal activity begins. The process of attempting to answer the questions may also help you further develop your own personal opinions on the topic, as well as hearing other's views.
Please note that these questions are regarding unexpected and opaque contact, not contact initiated by you or someone else present (e.g. CE5).
The Questions

  1. Consent: As far as I can tell, the primary source of fear, anxiety, and panic is the lack of formalized consent. Most, if not all of us, would be more than happy to speak with and assist unidentified beings if they contacted us in a safe, transparent, respectful manner. For example, a telepathic "Hello there, I'd like to get to you better. Would you be comfortable if I de-cloaked and introduced myself? I promise I intend you no harm." Unfortunately, many encounters are frightening and confusing. Sometimes people wake up already being touched, or feel threatened by unexplained and unannounced movements in the dark. There are many possible reasons for this. Communication might be impossible at times. We may have already agreed to their terms, but simply forgot. The very nature of what we're witnessing might be projected onto them from our subconscious, meaning they might not be intentionally scaring us, but we are scaring ourselves by how we interpret their essence. Either way, it's natural to be cautious when something approaches you, touches you, enters your thoughts, or your home, without formal consent. The question is: should we react defensively until consent is requested/provided, or should we assume that their intentions are good and formal consent is not necessary or possible?
  2. Evidence: This one is a little more straight forward. Is gathering evidence a priority, or should we focus mostly on having the experience without distractions or skepticism? This may depend on the type of experience, such as UFOs vs. conscious contact vs. physical beings in your presence. Other people who can't be there will certainly appreciate the evidence, but the attempt to gather evidence may discourage the unidentified beings from continuing contact. Some believe that evidence will only be possible if permitted, given the advanced technology of unidentified beings. The question is: Should we attempt to gather evidence, or does that add unnecessary complication and distraction to an already chaotic situation?
  3. Communication: Once you are in contact, what is the best manner of attempting to communicate? It seems some form of telepathic communication is preferred by many unidentified beings, according to a large quantity of contactees, but many of us are not confident in our mental abilities, and the unidentified beings may not respond to internal thought in every situation. Perhaps there should be a hierarchy of what methods to try first, second, third, etc. What is the best and most efficient phrase to start with in order to initiate diplomacy and stabilize the situation with positive intentions? For example "I mean you no harm, would you like to communicate with me?" The question is: Should we attempt to initiate communication, and if so, what is the best method and the best opening phrase?
  4. Reality check: I hear people questioning their own mental capacity after having these experiences. Some may not even be certain if they were awake, or in an alternate dimension rather than this one. Is there a good way to perform a sort of reality check to quickly and reliable assess if we are awake, sober, and perceiving reality accurately? Something that would not only help us process what happened, but also lend credibility to our story when we share it with others later. The question is: Should we attempt to perform a reality check, and if so, what is the most efficient and reliable?
I hope these questions are helpful in sparking internal and external conversations about the nature of the phenomena and how we should approach these experiences. Personally, I have been wrestling with the question of consent since I first began researching this topic. I look forward to hearing your intelligent thoughts and feelings. I'll post some of my own brief answers in the comments below soon.

2021.09.25 02:59 meatballsandwish 29 [F4M] manila, philippines - looking for older men for casual dating

Hello! Long time bf broke up with me a while back and I would like to try out dating again.
I’m the shy, awkward, introverted, and quiet type.. lol. A little tomboyish. I like reading books, hiking, bike rides. I keep exotic pets, just small reptiles, insects, and amphibians, nothing too crazy. I have too many cats, all rescued, not planning to add more. I also have a dog, if you're a dog person, I wouldn't mind bringing her along on the first date.
Very into DIY projects, would love to learn carpentry someday if you're into that. I'm open to trying out new hobbies like cooking and sports. I paint for a living, also currently working on my second degree in the medical field.
5.2, morena. ideal date during the pandemic might be a day spent at a park, we could have coffee at one of the cafes near by to meet, chat and see if there’s chemistry..
More of a listener than a talker, I'm always open to hear what's on your mind. Would love to learn more about you.
Chat with me if interested, although I really prefer telegram, discord, or viber.

2021.09.25 02:59 ko-kurotsuki mind blown

seeing ina's collab announcement made me realize something. "Ninomae" translates to 1 in Japanese (technically, the number before 2 according to her wiki), and "Ina'nis" translates to empty or void in Latin. 0 is the mathematical representation of nothing or emptiness. this means that ina's name could technically be translated to "1 0"

May not be an official version, but that doesn't mean it's illegal, right? Must be like a fangame, which uses characters from x company but is creating its own super similar game with them.

Any advice to improve my accuracy. The last few weeks I’ve been shooting inconsistent. Some groups are within an inch at 45 yards. Then next thing I know I’ve lost an arrow in the grass. Thanks in advance.

2021.09.25 02:59 jbisenberg Verdant Wind Draft Run

Three Houses - Verdant Wind Draft
If you are interested in participating, please comment below. Participation is on a first come, first serve basis.
This draft is for up to four (4) players to be played on Verdant Wind: Maddening/Classic. (If all participants universally agree, the difficulty may be lowered to Hard/Classic). Byleth and Claude are free for all players. Players may freely elect to use F! or M!Byleth. The run may not be played on a New Game+ (NG+) file.
Draft Style: The draft will be conducted in snake style order (1-2-3-4-4-3-2-1...). Players take turns drafting units in this order until no units remain. The draft order will be randomized before the draft begins. A player may only make use of the units that player drafts (or for whom the rules otherwise allow).
Undrafted Units: Undrafted units may not be recruited, see combat, use spells, use gambits, rally, provide on-map linked attack or linked gambit bonuses, use combat arts (including movement combat arts such as shove or smite), open doors or chests, trade or be traded with, fight in the arena, steal, serve as mission assistants, or enter the sauna. Undrafted units may be deployed as adjutants.
Notwithstanding this, the following exceptions apply: Prologue: Dimitri and Edelgard may be freely used. Chapter 13: Undrafted units may be freely used. Paralouges: Undrafted, mandatorily deployed units may be used (i.e. An Ocean View mandatorily deploys Seteth and Flayn, thus Seteth and/or Flayn may be used in this paralouge even if not drafted).
Additional Restrictions: Online bonuses may not be used. Amiibo bonuses may not be used. Use of the groundhog day glitch is prohibited. DLC stat boosters/items found under the bed in Byleth's room may not be used.
Note: While this is not a low turn count race, players are encouraged to keep track of their turn count as a general metric by which to gauge their performance against other participants and compare strategies. Players are also encouraged to comment with updates on their runs - and the participants should collaborate on through what medium they would prefer to do so. How different team compositions and styles tackle identical maps is often interesting to compare and may spark engaging discussion.
Available Units - as there are 32 available units, each player will draft a total of eight (8) units:
Alois; Anna; Annette; Ashe; Balthus; Bernadetta; Caspar; Catherine; Constance; Cyril; Dorothea; Felix; Ferdinand; Flayn; Hanneman; Hapi; Hilda; Ignatz; Ingrid; Leonie; Linhart; Lorenz; Lysithea; Manuela; Marianne; Mercedes; Petra; Raphael; Seteth; Shamir; Sylvain; Yuri.
Players: 1. jbisenberg 2. 3. 4.

2021.09.25 02:59 BidZealousideal1081 Scared it wont get better in college

The people at my highschool suck. I've come to peace with the fact that I'm just gonna be alone for the rest of the year. I'm hoping it will get better in college, but what if it doesn't? What if they're the exact same and I end up being alone for another 4 years? And what will I do after college? I just don't like talking to the people here, I have nothing in common with them. What if it's the same in college? I thought it would get better in high school when I had no friends in middle school, and as you can see that didn't really work out. Am I screwed? I'm scared I'll choose the wrong college, and it's not like there is a site to find colleges with people most like you.
