    I learnt that the purpose of church is to put us into a trance, so that our critical minds will go to sleep and we will believe whatever they tell us.

    People are self-righteous hypocrites.

    Oh wait, I only had to come to Type C to learn that.

    Gish my judgments of humanity all extend to myself, I think the problem here is that you may be having issues with coping with yourself or something morally, since you always feel a need to criticize me. I've long been aware that all people are self-righteous hypocrites, so why don't you go look in the mirror and stop your shit with trolling me around the forum again.

    My claim can be substantiated with evidence, yours is just a blatant attempt at an insult. Stop trolling me or i'll report you.
    Whoops.

    More on topic, I have a recurring location in my dreams that is some kind of a mix of a church, an airport, and a university. Every time I have one of those dreams I seem to experience the most vividly. Last night I had one and as I was praying I started getting approached by representatives from various schools telling me I had been accepted, then my cat woke me up. Personally churches have always been a place of thinking for me, outside of dreams I like to go to churches just to sit and think. It's a nice calm atmospheric place.
    Whoops.

    Extreme Church Going

    It's a challenge.

    In church I meet trance meisters who have been honing their practices for millennia.

    So my challenge is to remain the captain of my soul in the face of profound group trance.

    It's an extreme sport like white water rafting, where the white water is the group trance, and I have to keep my head above water, and pointed in the direction I choose.

    And as you note, I find it hard to resist the challenge of extreme church going.

    i actually kind of like this. almost as if no matter what you do or how hard you try life will always have its bad moments, and it's better to view happenings as just that--happenings--with no judgment passed upon them... detached. in this frame of mind it can allow one person to back away from that initial negative feeling and instead shift themselves to a different perspective, altering their view and reshaping their own life instead of allowing life to reshape them.
