"Nobody goes there anymore. It's too crowded."
I recently visited Paul Kimball,s website, "The Other Side of Truth" and perhaps not surprisingly, he was moving beyond the constrictions of blogging on the subject of the paranormal spectrum, in order to explore the other contingencies of life in general, to pursue other interests.
For some time I have been following a parallel path to Paul's diminishing interest in focusing all the energy and effort to what is a liminal subject in relation to experiential reality, which was evidenced by my own increasing ambivalence to sending material to other venues, posting comments on other blogs. Some of this was due to others who I felt had interesting perspectives dropping out, such as Eric Quinlett's still commanding and under appreciated "Parasociology " . The death of Mac Tonnies was a harbinger of my own narrowing set of choices to enjoy challenging, interesting and more artful perspectives on the subject.
The lack of feedback was another arbiter in recent months, whether it was good bad and or indifferent, it's absence diminished my impetus to send more material that simply became fodder for image searches on Goggle. Another reason is that I had said what I had to say, and the writing of this blog and the material I sent out in the internet did not match popular or peer produced material that tended to be a continual rehash of old subjects, some of which extended back more than a half century as a nearly obsessive compulsion to publish for the sake of publishing.
I still remain convinced as in the beginning that there is a commonality in all paranormal activity albeit a complex one, that I hinted at on my last post on the role of the atmosphere in being a medium of energetic exchanges between the mind and it's host the physical brain. I am considering writing a book that jells all of this into a coherent theory.
This blog will remain as long as it is hosted and one interesting aspect that was rewarding that a consistent 8% of the readership spent more than an hour here, so at least what I have written was expressed in other's interests.
This was never a commercial venture and I may look for another venue to express myself should one turn up, but I am not holding my breath. The blog will turn into a self published book simply because I would desire a hard copy of my own efforts as a record. There are many folks to thank and I will leave this for the last post, which will serve as the preface for the hard copy. I will be doing some editing here in preperation for the hard copy and that will be the extent of my activity here henceforth.
Best Wishes As Always
