I HAVE RECENTLY DISCARDED THE EVIL AND DELLUSIONAL WORLD SO GRACIOUSLY SHOWN TO ME BY MISS METHAMPHETAMINE. IN THE THROES OF MY DRUG INDUCED PSYCOSIS, I WAS CONVINCED THAT 'THEY,' WHOEVER THEY ARE, WERE TRYING TO GET ME TO KILL MYSELF THROUGH AN ARRAY OF SOPHISTICATED AND EXTREMELY INVOLVED METHODS; IE; BRAIN WAVE TRANSFERENCE, MANIPULATION OF ELECTRICAL DEVICES, FAR-BEYOND-PUBLIC TECHNOLOGY ....BLA, BLA, BLA. I KNEW NOT WHAT WAS REAL, AND WHAT WAS ONLY IN ME HEAD, LAD. I HAD NO ONE TO TALK TO, AND WAS DAYS AWAY FROM A PERMANENT PLACE IN THE GAP. I WANTED DEATH TO EMBRACE ME WITH ALL IT'S INDIFFERENCE AND DELETION.
THEN I REALLY STARTED IN ON LATERALUS, AND THE LYRICS IN PARABOL\PARABOLA ROSE TO MY MIND LIKE FOG UNDER THE SPRING SUN. HOLD ON, STAY-INSIDE-THIS-BODY!!! ILLUSITORY PAIN CAN BE AS CONVINCING AS THE LIES WE ARE FED DAY IN AND DAY OUT BY "THEM".......OOOOOHH........HOW DELIGHTFULLY TERRIFYING, EH? BUT THANKS TO THE FOUR FUCKERS IN TOOL, I KEPT ON KEEPIN' ON, AND THINGS ARE TURNING AROUND. THIS IS NOT TO SAY THAT I HAVE FORGOTTEN NOR DISMISSED ANYTHING THAT I EXPERIENCED, I JUST DON'T LET IT DERAIL ME FROM THE LIFE THAT WE ALL SO DESERVE.
I WISH I COULD TELL THE FOUR FUCKERS JUST HOW MUCH THEY HELPED ME, (IF THEY ARE EVEN CONCERNED WITH SUCH A THING). IF ANYONE COMMENTS ON THE EVIL INDISCRETION OF T-O-O-L..........YOU CAN TELL THEM TO EAT A DICK, BECAUSE YOU KNOW OF AT LEAST ONE DUDE WHO IS ALIVE TODAY BECAUSE OF THEM........

I REALLY LIKE YOUR POST, YOU KIND OF SOUND CRAZY YET IT SEEMS INTENTIONAL. IS THIS PIECE A COMMENTARY ON THE REGULAR NEWCOMERS THAT JOIN THIS FORUM AND MAKE A LUDICROUS FIRST POST? IF NOT, I DEFINITELY THINK YOU ARE CRAZY AND I'D LIKE TO RETRACT MY COMMENT WHERE I SAID THAT I ENJOYED YOUR POST. CAUSE TO BE HONEST, I DIDN'T READ MOST OF IT BECAUSE OF THE CAPS LOCK. NEXT TIME CHECK YOUR KEYBOARD BEFORE TYPING A CRAZY MESSAGE. I THINK IT'D HELP YOUR REPUTATION AS A MORE SANE INDIVIDUAL.

I think the same thing every time I come here, and I've got your answer. This site has become infested with computer nerds. There's really hardly any Tool fans I see on here these days. Everybody here just wants to type big, write stupid one-liners, and tell people to go kill themselves at the end of every post.

I really feel for the original poster here. My apologies man, maybe if you would have come here a couple of years ago you would have gotten some worth-while feedback. One by one the real Tool fans have left this site or post very rarely. The ones who are left are people that will post on ANY website. They're lonely and bored, and lack real-world social skills. They get online, adopt a different persona (which happens to be like all the other web-personas), and treat everyone like shit because they know they'll never 'really' encounter the people they flame online. If you met a lot of these people in real life you'd pity them.

You have to remember there are a LOT of people on this website that post ALL day long. This means they're either high schoolers living with their parents, or have no job or family to keep them participating in the real world. This is why I usually only post about twice a month.

To the OP: I found your post very inspiring, and I think what you felt is the very heart of what Tool is trying to do. I'm sure those four fuckers would be glad to hear they've helped you. So what, you typed in all caps. At the very worst its mildly annoying, not anything that would deter your message.

Or do we require a minimal fee.

Or a complimentary night with a quadrapelegic whore....
Maybe to prove that we have no life,
No brains, no style, no job and no wife.

We require the sarcasm of some dumb stranger's guff.

Your caps are slightly mind-boggling, make my eyes hurt...

But TOOL songs have definitely saved me. I'm glad to hear your story, though my eyes have been blinded further than they are now.

As for me, a song has definitely saved me as well. I owe a lot to Undertow.
To make things short, I'll just say that it saved me twice.

TOOL songs have that effect.
Amazing, really.

Well, this isn't very Parabol-related at all (though that song is downright beautiful), but the first time it saved me on a term paper.

The second time was described on my blog, but since it's private unless you add, I'll just put it here:

Technically it just changed my perspective. A LOT.
----------

The Undertow


Today, I saw someone. I don't know if it should have been pity or relief...or some sort of contempt.

I only feared that someday I would become them. It's thwarting us. It's thwarting our world. We slowly diminish---with every passing day, we die.

And I saw this person mere moments ago. Pain following their every step. They would not get the affection of anyone---of any male, female, or anything in between.

And that saddened me. Extremely.

These are moments in which I really can't help but want to reach out. I don't lie when I say that this person is destined to die. This person will die.

And they will die in within a decade if they don't get help. If anything, why not try to assist them?

Because we do not know them. And in this fear, we choose not to speak with them. This is what makes us an antisocial kind of society. We claim to help; we claim to reach out.

But we are too afraid. We are too afraid to even release our own emotions---in fear of their reaction.

Can we change this? Will you change this? Will I change this?

And most of all---

Will we become this? Or are we already pulled in by the undertow?

It's your decision.
----------

Mm.

Rolo
05-29-2008, 12:27 PM
Nice philosophy...

But do you mean that we choose not to help because we don't care for those we don't know? Or to protect yourselves from those who might take disadvantage of our attempt to help?

Very well put, it's human nature to shy away from situations like these because of the uncertainty but it makes you such a stronger person to set aside that unknowning fear act on it for the better.

I reckon' we humans invest anything in anyone for this one reason; Personal Gain, albeit sometimes, the gain is simply protection of self. They tell women to yell "fire" instead of "rape" or "help" whilst getting attacked. I heard that in a movie, so it has GOT to be true (anyone name it?) Anyway, is this because they fear injury? A fire could bring on some fuckin pain, I'd think! Maybe the chivalry within drives them to feats of miraculous courage, but there could always be a cheerleader squad on fire; ya never know. Or...Maybe because most folks have no greater fear than the one for aggressive conflict. Sure, we all have an old brodie from school that, to this day, is still walkin' around, knockin' teeth out because it's fun (and he may or may not be in the clink). But there are also those few of us that will truly sacrifice self for stranger. Omittiing these exceptions, would you not agree? Like in Fight Club, when the "homework assignment" is to go pick a fight, and most find it difficult if not impossible. People run like the sheep when something threatens to break up their little collective serenity they got goin'. I wonder if we harbor a similar fear of compassion and pity, and ultimately intervention, (which kinda goes back towards aggression). Don't most cringe at the thought of drug addicts, or obeise people, or colostomy bags? I feel a little uncomfortable trying to be curteous through my embarassment when meeting a deaf person that talks like a mummy. I see a large woman walking down the street, feel sorrow for her because she probably has not now, and never will, a man to love her. (please don't take that wrong; especially if you are a quiet, undersexed, fat crack whore that can't hear the gastro doctor calling on the phone so she can come get her shit sack swapped out)...........My point is that even though the compassion is there, an underlying element lurks in wait, ready to derail us back to our safe, comfortable lives so we can produce more like us, and less like the aforementioned lady, that is no doubt a wonderful woman with galaxies of beautiful in her heart (so what if she moans to music she can't hear?) ....This world, this society especially, likes to either lock the struggling up, send them to some "hospital" where sedation is easilly administered, or simply keep them outta sight, outta mind. Wieght-loss commercials don't show really fat people, they show the "slightly over the optmal body wieght" chick (that looks great to me), giving the youth of america a parameter in which to reside in, and become what is comfortable; not for themselves, but for the majority......... Sorry about rambling.........It saddens me greatly, man. All we can do is continue on our journey. loving, laughing, enjoying, fucking, singing and trying to help each other out, no matter what happens. A thousand people may have screwed me over, but that doesn't mean that number one thousand one doesn't deserve a little assistance............"undertow" is groovy, but sad, and I agree with everything you guys said. I am loving this site......

dxs
05-31-2008, 09:32 AM
I really understand what you're saying.
That's sort of what I was trying to say.

The person I saw that day was this woman that was...how do I put it...fat.
No, wait, she was a young girl.

I saw her, and I felt immense pity for her, for the same reason that you felt bad for that old woman you saw.
No one would love her. Well, sappy, I know, but it's fairly lonely for everyone to just look over and think "what a fatass" and then leave, you know? It's depressing, and if you put yourself in their shoes for just one minute...not only will you feel the weight of the person, but you'll feel the weight of their pain.

And sometimes we don't think about that because we've never been through it.

You know, sometimes you want to reach out and help and all, but you can't. Not because you don't want to (well, some might...) but mostly because you don't know the person, and because that person probably won't even trust you at first.

And yes, it's sad, and we have no choice to move on...makes me wonder if that's what humans are for. To try and try incessantly and fall. It's an epic made for tragedy.

dxs
05-31-2008, 09:35 AM
Or to protect yourselves from those who might take disadvantage of our attempt to help?

That one.
Also, the fact that we do not know this person.
Yes, technically the second.
We have no idea of the person's background history, and with all that we see around, be it from life's experiences or television...we grow wary of everyone, kin or not.

Yeah but if that fatass had any willpower she'd be working out everyday. People do it all the time. It's like the fat chick that's depressed and sits there complaining about their weight, crying while eating some fucking McDonalds double cheesburgers. Fuck that, it's one thing to cry about something you have no control over but if you have the ability to change something and you just don't do it., I don't want to hear you fucking cry about it.

06-03-2008, 08:36 AM
Good point.
Wasn't a point I had in consideration, but it would eventually come up in conversation.

The girl I saw was disabled, however, which is why I didn't really think of that at the time.
Unless it can't be helped, the only pity that most would give out is spite, for feigning helplessness.

Then we become MORE wary, and alongside that, we shun everyone.
Leaving us where we started.

Leaving me to think a little more. :)

What did you eat 9 days ago?
Don't lie.

Haha, I can't even remember what I DID 9 days ago...hopefully you'll fare better.

9 days ago I ate a peanut butter sandwich, a fruit cup (peaches) and a chewy granola bar (s'mores flavor). But that was easy, cause i eat that every day xD

Sounds like some sort of school breakfast or meal.
Do you still go to school?

I like peanut butter sandwiches, peach fruit cups (yesss), and chewy granola bars (smores).

Haha, after this, i think we should get back on topic, though.
it's swaying terribly.

Awright.
So what song do you know has somehow altered your life?
Or whatever you'd like to say on the matter, rather than using skepticism, please.

Many songs have altered my life, none that are noteworthy, though. Just the basic "the lyrics have inspired me to do better with my life" kinda thing.

Hmm, well let's see. The doors song/poem "Celebration of the Lizard" inspired me to look into deeper meanings of simplistic things. And I had my first and only OBE to it. (That can be pretty amazing)

As for me, a song has definitely saved me as well. I owe a lot to Undertow.
To make things short, I'll just say that it saved me twice.

TOOL songs have that effect.
Amazing, really.

Undertow is a great album to listen when things in your life don't go so well. I remember to listen to it when i was really messed up, and helped me a lot, (but Pushit did the most part), you just have to focus on the lyrics, find the right space and push all the anger out of you! I owe a lot to Undertow too!

Haha, yes.
Undertow is amazing.
Though everyone thought I was referring to the album...I meant the song, subjectively.
Regardless, Undertow's good stuff.

At first it took some time to warm up to, but then I really liked it.

Yes, that CAN be pretty amazing.
The Doors is some good stuff.

not saying that TooL songs haven't given me deeper insight or anything, I just haven't had a groundbreaking spiritual experience to their music...yet

I did that too, a while back I tried mescaline and watched it....the goddamn main screen is full of crazy visions that you just don't normally notice in a normal state of mind.

It WAS pretty nice---ironically, Adam is the director and they don't interview him once. Instead, everyone from Alex Grey to the CGI animators talk about him. But I liked it. And "Net of Being" looked even more amazing when the picture was showed completely.

As for the Vicarious vid and such, I copied it out of the dvd and just let it sit in my hard drive so I dont have to pop the dvd in I feel like watching.
cd-dvd-like things are really easy to take stuff out of. :)
