PostSubject: Indigo Children   Sun Aug 03, 2008 2:56 pm

So i was visiting my mom yesterday, and she had a friend of hers over; somehow it came out that i was an anarchist and we started debating over a few things related to politics, like capitalism, why i don't vote (i almost got her to do the same), and heirarchy; after a while she ended up calling me an indigo child, and it piqued my interest. So i did some investigating and came up with this:

The term was coined by some psychic gal, and the color refers to that of the person's aura. Indigo children are those kids born after the mid seventies whose awareness is beyond that of society as it is. The psychic claims that people with indigo auras are sensitive to the feelings of others (i believe that is a common reason for choosing socialism), self-aware, and want to make a difference with their life. The psychic claims indigo children are more susceptible to disorders like OCD (i might have that to a slight degree), ADD, autism, and may become introverted if they are not around other indigo children (I can vouch for that; I never met anyone who thought the way i did until i discovered socialism). And apparently the indigo children are supposed to lead some social revolution, or some bullshit like that.

The book is called "Understanding Your Life Through Color", by Nancy Tappe if anyone wanted to read more (it's some weird shit). So if anyone wants to defend the merits of this book , feel free, but this doesn't seem anything more than a religion to me; somethin to help people dream well.

I just thought there were some interesting connections, for me at least, between indigo children and revolutionary leftists. While i don't think there is some evolutionary phenomenon occuring, i do believe people are finally coming to an understanding that change is possible, as well as necessary. I think people are beginning to realize (maybe not in these terms) that as the synthesis of then and now, we have more options available to us than past generations; we don't have to live life according to some pre-set rules that our fore-fathers established. And i think it is because youth is revolutionary. As years go by, and people are becoming less backwards and more accepting, the revolutionary ideas of the youth are less inhibited by reaction, thus allowing these ideas more room to expand. Well that's the impression i get anyway.

dude don't worry he isn't talking about iq ^_^ awareness of your surroundings and your position in the world (and wanting to change the system of the world...), knowing WHERE you are, and WHAT you want to do....that's different than iq. =D

Um, no? I don't remember saying or implying that this was the case at all. You have a real knack for distorting the words of others, you know?

Also, being aware of your environment is a form of intelligence, but it is not the only contributing factor.
