Musings and Dissertations

You've probably noticed I've been dishing out a lot more of the philosophical rants and dissertations as late. I had always meant to do this here, as a lot of what this blog deals with is exactly that. You know, Jung wrote about it often, as to how our sociology - our mores, norms, values, and ideals - lend to our current beliefs and interests. To those ends, the state of the world today definitely has to do with our current interest in the Occult and Unknown, and it's interesting to me to pontificate on where the two meet and diverge.

How much of all this paranormal reality TV and entertainment is driving our desire to learn more, and how much is our desire for knowledge on these subjects driving the entertainment industry to dole-out more?

Even further, current religious debates, while they haven't changed much (if at all), have once again come to the forefront and I think part of that has to do with my own Generation X, who were largely void of religion, if not downright anti-religious. This was a logical extension of rebellion from previous generations' norms, mores, and values, and it is just as logical that it has since turned to the other end of the spectrum. This is also part of what is fueling the renewed interest in the Unknown and paranormal.

So, that's why I have been doing more of this lately. It is all meant to dovetail with the scientific reports and ideas we cover here; all of these disparate sciences, ideas, teachings, and studies work in tandem and in contrast to shape the whole of the paranormal today - what we think of it, whether or not we believe it (may) exists, the theories we forward to explain that which we cannot - all of it is important to the study of this phenomena as a whole, and why I like to muse on it when I can.

And I am clearly in love with the sound of my own voice.
