But here's a catch: you can shut the fuck up and not reply to this. If you manage to do this, you will somewhat prove you're changed or something and I will edit my post
thats a bit full on. so you can say what u want to teotz..but hes unable to express his opinion. thats a little ill.
i believe treating people like a bitch will yield a negative result.
i really dont see why teotz needs to 'change' to fit in line with peoples perception of acceptable behaviour or personality. asides from forum rules of course, which he rarely crosses, sometimes he crosses into the grey area, as alot of us do, but i really think torsten and he have a good relationship, like alot of us do with t, where it is managed, and is one of the reasons why i still respect the shit out of torsten, a man who ive learned SO MUCH from. on many different levels.
im not ass kissing im just trying to speak my perceived truth right now. well actually i should. I know i said some bad things at t in this unfortunate (or fortunate?) forum section, and id just like to yeah man up and publicly apologise.
t has done alot for me. and i can only ever be thankful, if i where to ever live as a decent human being, which is what i want to be.
teotz is a member of this community, who i believe shows a passion and commitment to ethnobotany that many of us overlook, or perhaps are envious of. From my perceived observation of teotz forum interactions as well as interaction with teotz on a more private level,ive come to believe that teotz has a conection with plants and the plants 'spirits' that many of us could only ever dream to possess.
if u ask me teotz IS a plant spirit. i myself have learned alot from him about plants and about myself as well as other human beings, from his passion, and the way that people react to him. The ugly side of human nature does seem to appear often when confronted with teotz. whats most interesting is the most violent, and i mean violent, whether its masked with humour-sarcasm or not, come from people who more often than not, have the same, if not more apparent and hideous, qualities about themselves, concious or not. thats what i find interesting, and worthy of self reflection, if i personally find teotz posts annoying (well i think thats just rude) or stupid (even ruder.) i find it stands out like dogs balls when someone bags the shit out teotz. That the same if not worse qalities are there in themselves. Not that im exempt from these unfortunate qualities as well, which i must own up to. i think its a great method for personal growth. if u find someone who does ting the shit outta you, a bit of self reflection usually indicates that you do it to, but maybee not concious of the behaviour and its effects. Then u become conscious of it, and are able to make changes and choices. Then u start to think, "well maybee that person is not concious it either"
i think toby said it best "everyone is doing the best they can, at that time" i loved that.
.thats empathy. empathy is key i think, to an evolving conciousness.
jeez, im far from perfect. very far. but really, who is??
i think teotz IS a valuable member of this community. I know that im not the only person who shares this opinion here of teotz.
teotz doesnt like the nook.. who cares????? its just a FUCKING FORUM. maybee some self-reflection on why a forum is so important to your identity that u need to go spaz. ur critisisng teotz for eliciting emotion you spew forth quite often mutant. dont get me wrong man i love you to. seriously,and by god ive learned as much about myself and others from you as well. I think thats the key and if theres something ive learned in the time that the plant kingdom has reached out to me, to well, help me become more conciouss of myslf and the universe around me is that, there is wisdom hidden in what EVERYONE is trying to express, that can contribute to your own concious (i cant spell it lol) growth. well thats what ive come to believe anyways, which is forming my truth. i hope its true anyways lol
gez if someobne bags this forum, which happens often that ive seen, well on AE anyways, why would i give a fuck?
why would that change my concept of this forum? it changes often. some days i hate it, somedays i love it, somedays i just couldnt be arsed. ive leaned alot from it. from all the characters and knowledge. But to take offence to someone who hates it would just be the biggest waste of my morning milo. im sure torsten wouldnt give a hoop-la, and what i find an admirable quality in teotz is that he doesnt seem to give a fuck either what people say about or to him. He keeps posting. that is an blessing and more than admirable quality in my books.
edit. forgive me for spelling and punctation errors, elocution etc. i can actually spell and punctuate but im so freaking lazy.
