Hey. Same dude here who suggested making this thread on /vx/ a while ago. I've been coming to check out what's going on here periodically. This is the point I feel I should jump in, as I think there are things here you failed to notice. But before that, some backstory to put what I'm about to post into context:
I'm a skeptic, and tend to not believe in gods and supernatural things. Well, more accurately, I don't believe stuff just because people said so. The more complex one's claim is, the more proof it needs, the more ready they need to be to answer any follow-up questions. As our time is finite, the inverse tends to be the case. The more complex your claim is, the less you are able to sufficiently demonstrate that everything it encompasses is the actual truth. Hence people rejecting stuff like holy books and complex ideologies right from the start. They are skeptics, critical thinkers, and I am among them.
That said, I have learnt long ago to be respectful towards you wizard types. Just because I don't take someone's word for something, that alone doesn't mean it can't be the case, it just means I personally don't take it for granted.
So, onward to the point: The burgerbro you are replying to is a skeptic, but an especially retarded one. His stance is that your divination method straight up doesn't work, not because your method is flawed, but because he believes divination itself is just fiction.
First he tried larping a bit with>Make no mistake, I'm not offering a counterparty method of metaphysics (numerological or otherwise) because your method is not credible enough to warrant it.
letting the reader believe he's just saying your methods are shit, but doesn't outright claim he rejects the whole concept.
I started typing out this reply, but then he posted this, stepping out of the facade >>134939
(And the post ended in a 9. Make of that what you will.)
So, just to clear things up, know all of this and treat his posts accordingly:
-He rejects the whole notion of divination. In fact, he conflates number-based divination with numerology.
-He doesn't know this whole random number divination shit is pretty old and an integral part of chan-type imageboard culture.
-He also doesn't know that it is in essence an Internet-age rebirth of Jungian synchronicity, stepped up to turbo-speed.
-He probably doesn't know what half of these words even mean.
-Him using the term "mentalism" is meant to drive home the point that what you are doing is akin to what a magicians do. He's calling you a magician. A prestidigitator. He's also kind of implying you're tricking yourself too, and not just the audience.
And considering all of the above, I think it is worth to ask:>>134943
What the actual fuck are you doing on /vx/, lad? This is the home of video games and the paranormal.
This thread fits the latter, and it is clearly addressed to people who either have an interest in this type of "random number divination" / synchronicity interpretation / whatever you want to call it. It isn't about discussing whether divination itself is valid or not, it is literally just about Bong Anon reporting his findings he achieved through a method he believes to work. So, again, what the fuck are you doing here? If you feel like venting about how this shit so fake, then go write a blog post about it or something, because nobody here cares. Not even the lurkers. You think it's not real? Okay. Read it as fiction and move on. OP was sensible enough to not shit up other threads with his posts related to this when pointed out he's being off-topic. So kindly don't shit up this thread with trying to convince the self-proclaimed divination wizard that he's actually a magician. Thank you.
