My name is Michael Collins - I am from and reside in Los Angeles California. I would like to first lay out a little about myself to fully put forth my intentions of being here. I have spent the majority of my life challenging the status quo set forth first by Catholicism then by nationalism, constantly seeking truth in it’s naked non-human contrivance. Leaving the church willingly at the age of twelve I set myself, knowingly, on a path towards philosophical discovery against the infinite unknown. Now, happily married and at the age of thirty-two, I have developed an understanding of the universe that has served me in not only navigating the modern world but also to aid me in my further understanding of morality, virtue, consequences, and revelations of truth. I learned a long time ago that answers are only as good as your questions and have thus put the furtherance of developing better questions to the highest order as well as the methodologies of doing so. As a result of my choices, I find myself label-less and a free agent - what good this brings I believe I understand, however, it does come with consequences in that building relations with people based upon morale conviction and/or philosophical/spiritual discovery has become tenuous. Indeed, it is easy to find groups who share in political ideologies or prefers a sports team over another, however, finding those who genuinely seek to make the world a better place through investing time to develop both the modes and ideas that foster actual change has proven to be challenging. The trepidation and delicacy required for positive and healthy transformation on a global level are not virtues commonly found in average people.
Why than am I here writing this?
During my investigations of ancient cultures, histories both oral and written, had led me to the Kolbrin - mainly the story of Atlantis and the aftermath of the great floods caused by asteroidal impacts, now being proven throughout the scientific community. Needless to say I was intrigued and later discovered the Kolbrin printed by the Culdian Trust out of New Zealand. I purchased it and read through it. I was, at first, taken back by the messages conveyed in these books. I had not quite experienced, save for some eastern philosophies, ideals that so closely aligned with my general world view. This is not to say that I seek what I consider to be my attributes in other things, I was/am quite content with living my life as a loaner serving the betterment of life, but to see them so plainly laid out and so eloquently spoken… I was given hope that there are people in this world who do adhere to logic and reason and do not allow imaginary lines and taboos to impede further investigations into the mysteries. I am someone who sees boarders as new horizons to be transcended and most definitely seek others of similar dispositions to share and exchange ideas with it in the hopes to elicit positive and lasting change to our world for future generations.
I am new to these forums as well as the people here - I consider myself a highly skeptical person since I believe Catholicism was/is a cult of perverted power (as well as many other institutions both known and unknown), so I am not the kind of person who would place a label on himself or ‘join’ a group (perhaps to a fault); however, if there are others who read the words in the Kolbrin and saw in it the intentions of the authors as being those who also struggled through a world of deception and empty novelty and held fast to the goodness inherent in mankind then I must know if those people do exist and see for myself their quality.
I am here for self discovery and, most hopefully, to find lasting friendship. Please, feel free to ask me anything - my life is an open book and I most definitely like to hear any and all thoughts on what I have put forth. Thank you for your time in reading my words.
