/x/ i just want honest opinions from people who don't give a shit a bout me.
I'm insane and probably edgy as fuck, i'll just say that now.
I learned how to write out my past lives subconsciously in short story form and they all share the same theme. A dark female spirit resides inside me causing me to be depressed and stagnant. I remove her and no longer suppressed by her, I'm overcome by my uncontrollable rage and become an evil, cold-hearted monster.
It all makes sense looking at my life. As early as 2 years old i remember vivid nightmares of a little girl shrouded in shadow that would torment me and pull me under my bed. These have persisted to this day, she's always my same age, so she's grown up with me so to speak.
When i did lsd for the first time on a camping trip, i saw her vividly in real life. All night she was walking through the woods crying and screaming. I've done lsd several times after that, it's always nice in the day, but once it hits night she appears and the screaming starts.
I've also had anger issues my entire life. They only come about when i'm very active. The episodes get so unbearable that i often have to remove myself from social situations to weather the storm. Sourceless, directionless rage is terrifying; it makes my whole body shake with the need to break something or hurt myself.
So i was already at the point in my life where i decided to rid myself of her before i learned of my past lives. Now i'm torn between being a melancholic shutin, or a monster.
I whole heartedly believe everything i've told you, take it from there and give me an opinion.

So, I've just seen Blair Witch for the first time, which is weird because I'm really into found footage movies. Strange that I haven't seen THE found footage movie until now (also there's cannibal holocaust before you yell at me).
Anyways, I know this is one of those things that will be ambiguous forever and no amount of explanation or shitty sequels will fix it. I just wanted to ask what your interpretations of the movie are, because that's just fun. This movie and others like it are arguably the reason shit like /x/ even exists, and the fact that after 10+ years, people still discuss it surely means something. So let's get down to it!
My best take, is that the witch could shape shift. Some people think that Josh was alive and brought them both to the house, but by the end, I saw Josh's calling out as the Witch mimicking him. (Assuming that audio could be heard from the 16mm,) That's why Heather was in the basement and next to Mike in the attic simultaneously, and that's why there's no footstep noise while "Heather" descends the staircase (they mention that the witch floats to avoid being heard). This would also explain why Heather repeatedly calls out for Mike despite being still relatively close to him. Mike is possessed and told to stand in the corner, and Heather wanders in right after, screaming for his attention. Heather will be murdered shortly by the witch. As the fable is told, Mike will follow.
The other theory that I like, is that the only sound coming from the video was Mike's cam, and Heather walks down the stairs to be attacked by Josh. Which holds water with any "Josh was possessed" theories. My problem with that, is there is no way Heather would have got down those stairs so steadily and quietly. Even if the only audio in the movie after Mike drops is coming from Mike's camera, there isn't really an explanation as to why the only noises that are heard are Heather screaming.
>tl;dr: just saw Blair Witch, tell me your ending theories

I tend to have precognitive dreams that range in predicting events such as the plane being shot down in ukraine, to a specific non interesting event in my own life.
These happened naturally at first, but as I've been experimenting with astral projecting for over 2 years, its seemed to increase dramatically.
I just feel that predicting if someone you see across the street is going to trip over, or if a certain song is going to play on the radio isn't normal especially if its happening extremely frequently.
Am I alone in this or is this just some bizarre coincidental experience that happens to everyone, constantly?

I've never posted here, but I've lurked for some time.
I never had a reason to post, until now.
Of all the outlets there are on the internet, I believe this to be the most random selection of open minded individuals that will truly take away from this discussion; a discussion that will be created and destroyed today, the way it is intended.
Simply put, I've been visited.
There's a lot that was discussed: the who, what, where, when, and why, but I really can't even fathom where to begin.
So please, ask away.
Kybalion and demiurge thread

I'm a recent lurker on here, and I've been seeing "The Kybalion" and "the demiurge" mentioned quite a bit. I'm interested, and would like to know if there are any books or articles to read on these (or related) topics. I'm not an occultist, I'm not a witch or whatever, I don't do anything esoteric. Only loosely /x/ related thing I'm involved in is that I'm a tulpa, but that isn't all too relevant to this thread.
Really, I just want to learn about this. So far, what I've gathered is that the demiurge created this reality and is trying to bind us to it by use of illusions. I noticed that nobody who believes in it likes it, and that they want to "break free of it" through meditation and whatnot. I've also gathered that the demiurge isn't exactly conscious, and that it takes shape as the world around us, meaning that we practically live inside of it, and it feeds off of our consciousness.
Regarding the Kybalion, I've only gathered that it's an enlightening book. I have the .pdf open in my browser, but I guess I'd like some introduction/initiation into these topics so that I know what I'm getting into. I'm very interested. I'm not asking for whether this material is true or not, I'm just asking for the material itself, and I'll decide whether I believe in it or not after I've read enough about it.
So, if you're coming here to say that all of this is bullshit, please leave. You can discuss the Bible without believing in it, so it should be fine to discuss this independent of beliefs, and simply looking at the material itself.
I'll also appreciate any kind of personal knowledge or experiences that are unrelated to any articles or books, but I value sourcework more than anecdotal experiences.
