    I've only ever met anyone with synesthesia in recent years, and suddenly it's been a few. The numbers thing is really cool, Wind.

    I was fascinated by a woman who would paint the music she heard. She was always pleased when she heard yellow, because she usually heard blue or maybe green.

    Synesthesia goes a lot farther than merely associating colors with numbers or with music. It also combines other senses, and sometimes in not very pleasant ways.

    Sammy came back and yet didn't post about synchronicity or gnosticism or even his own research about climate.

    Another bemoaned a 'lack of creative posts' while not posting anything themself and instead glomming onto the Q threads.

    And those who have posted about science, dreams, magic, gnosticism, foreign travel, podcasts and more get called drunks.

    Personally, I think it's sad that people can come here and then decide to just complain.

    Very Sad.

    Yikes. Did Sammy ask to retire his account both here and over at PA? What a pity...

    No he has a special member status over there at PA - Retired/Active ...

    Recently i've come to understand that donate button has its benefits ...

    Which now explains an awful lot to me.

    To be fair, Sammy asked me via email for the retirement of his account because ─ and in his own words ─ he was afraid he'd be posting something that would get him banned here. I told him we don't ban people that easily, but he hasn't replied so far.

    That's too bad, i was hoping his presence here might encourage others to migrate back.

    That would have been a nice bonus, but personally, I was already glad to see Sam himself returning to us after his ~18-month hiatus. I've always appreciated his big heart and his inclination toward spiritual exploration.

    Post update:

    I want to apologize to Sammy, for perhaps giving the impression that his new
    PA status is because of donating to the forum ... Which is not true ...

    But it is no secret that in the past members there who donated regularly got
    easy access to Mr Ryan, and i guess some could say there's nothing really
    wrong with that ... Though i understand now why he never responded to
    my PM's ... giggle

    I was reflecting on this post yesterday and today and I realized that I am not being fair to Sammy. He has posted with substance and care, and had even expressed that he'd like to post more when able.

    I know he is now retired, but I feel I need to apologize to him for my carelessness.

    In fact, if not for Sammy, I likely would not have looked into gnosticism with the depth that I have. And I appreciate that very much.

    I was going to edit said post, but decided to make a new post as that would be more noticeable.


    Thanks for the advice, Aianawa. Complaining is the first step, followed by discussion and then action. Just don't get stuck at the complaint level. Keep going towards action. That's how I see it.
