Hey guys, GradualDIME here. It's been a while since I've reported from the Worlds front (or any of our other archival side projects, for that matter), but I was feeling very nostalgic today and it's been a while since I've seen a Worlds thread. I'm here to answer questions and just share a bunch of stuff I have collected. Feel free to join in on the discussion and see what it's all about.
What Worlds Is: An early virtual chat from the late 90's/early 00's. Although the site and official servers are up and running, nothing has been updated in a long while. A relatively small group of regulars still log on quite often. They are all fairly old, from 30 on up. Many of the user-created rooms are creepy or generally full of WTF. Even the official rooms (the ones found on the universe map) have a strangeness about them, however unintentional that may be. Perhaps the age of the client and its graphics create a sort of uncanny valley effect? Who knows.
What Worlds Isn't: A cult, viral advertising for anything, an ARG, etc. It's simply a very early model of virtual chat that has been online for a decade or so. The various worlds created by users are just very creepy. There is nothing paranormal about Worlds nor is there any kind of conspiracy. It's just creepy and fun to explore.
If you are totally lost, here is a link to my research collection from our first month of exploration: www.gradualdime.com/docs/Worlds_Research_Papers_GradualDIME.pdf
Stick around for a dump of screenshots.

Don't make my mistake /x/. Also, this is probably a farewell.
As a 19to virgin all i wanted from this world was to find the perfect girlfriend and lose my virginity! Long story short: I tried everything but the direct approach. One night i found a thread on the Ars Goethia and it peaked my interest. I read online everything i could about it, and eventually obtained it (not the Crowley version, though I got that as well). While reading it (on my own) i was drawn to Asmoday or Asmodeus as he is sometimes called (mainly because i liked the name). He promises women, love and pleasure to those who evoke him (colloquially speaking), and punishes men who are unfaithful to their wives/women.
Some time later i met a guy who claimed to be a Thelemite (but in fact was a gimmick humper) he introduced me to a member who claimed he was an Adamanteus Theon (i still have no idea what it means). One night, while drinking at a gathering, i asked him to help me with Asmodeus' evocations. He got a little ticked off because he thought i was an edgy teen. After some persuasion, and several days later, he gave me some written and drawn evocations. At first i was hesitant, but eventually i performed it.
Like i expected, nothing happend... or so i thought.

Okay, so recently I have watched a video about the creation of the human race and it talks about different levels of consciousness, Lymeria, and Atlantes. Well any way in the video it talks about how with higher level of consciousnesses you can do things with your thoughts. Now im more of a scientific guy and mainly try and look for explanations with science, well some weird shit has been happening to me for the past couple of years. Whats been happening is that ive noticed that sometime i think of things happening, just quick flash thoughts in my head that don't stay long and then go away; then have what i thought happen. For example ill be watching football (American football) and a team will be lining up for an easy field goal, a thought like "hes going to miss it" will quickly pop in my head and then go away, what happens next? he will miss the field goal. Now another thing that i have noticed is that if that happens and then i think in my head "i thought about it now its going to happen" it will not happen. Its weird and happens to me A LOT, some might say im just guessing but reoccurring thoughts that seem absolutely wont happen will some how happen. Maybe im tapping into my high consciousness or something, i don't know guys but maybe something like this has happen to you guys, any ideas whats going on?

I want to sell my soul to the devil /x/.
Or a demon or something i don't know, look, im bored, im just bored with life, i mean its not like im doing bad, im pretty ok actually, but everyday is the same and i just don't have energy to do anything.
Im not really a believer in the paranormal, ive never seen a ghost and im an atheist, but an open minded one, the reason im atheist is because ive never seen evidence of god, if i saw or felt one i would be all over it.
So yeah, i dont care about the concequences, at least it would be interesting, and its halloween what other perfect time to do this, and maybe not sell maybe just summon something or just make something interesting happen with my life.
What do you say /x/? Any ideas?
