Bedeekin made this hilarious post on the forums a bit ago, and I really wanted to share it with everyone!

So far… this is a great collection of peeps on here Xanth. You seem to have brought a balance to the force. It’s made me see more clearly the different views of individuals that can be placed within specific groups… just like physical reality. Here is my list of ‘Types’.
The Lucid Dreamers… These generally stick to the idea that all nonphysical experiences are Lucid Dreams. Whether it be from Sleep Paralysis or through a dream. They tend not to theorise too much and it seems to be a 50/50 on whether there is more to it than a chemical reaction of a meat based brain. They usually do it to do cool stuff like fly and be superhuman. It’s cool to control your dreams right?
The OOBErs (Out of Body Experiencers)… these tend to stick to the idea of a RTZ projection being the only true one. They relate ‘Astral Projection’ as a different animal more closely related to dreams and stick to their guns that they actually externalise a type of second (ethereal) body or soul. OOBEs rule!! This group gets upset quickly… generally by the APers.
The APers (Astral Projectors) … These class themselves as spiritual generally speaking. They use a system that relies on an esoteric view originally defined by the theosophical movement that combined many eastern philosophies into one big westernised mass. They categorise different types of projection into specific subtle body types. This is a popular view with lots of props and metaphors… like crystals, energy work and chakras etc. Usually taken on board by the modern newbie.
The love and lightworkers. These are more closely related to the APers but go that one step further by fully embracing the cosmic super-galactic oneness attitude.. they tend to wear dream catchers around their neck and are a modern version of the hippie… they are generally vegan and sign off a post with ‘namaste’ or ‘Love and light to you and yours’.
The Magicians. These embrace the black magic or Wiccan view. Will use spells to ward off demons.. or incantations to manifest them. Horoscopes and tarot cards are essential accessories. Prone to write long posts with symbols and diagrams of sacred geometry. Usually have a poster or avatar of a pentagram or Aleister Crowley holding his fists to his face.
The Hardcore Materialists These are of Russian origin and flatly point to it all being nothing but ‘meat brain’ materialism. They will announce how amazingly mind expanding it is, but ‘meat based’. How you can use it to learn new things, but ‘meat based’. How you can find lost objects, but still ‘meat based’. Will produce very dodgy documentaries and try everything in their power to promote it as ‘meat based’. Everything is ‘phase’… apart form the ‘meat based’ bit. Will use pretty ‘meat’ to promote their materialism.
The phaser A relatively new and balanced group of individuals that use meditation to project. Prone to being a bit too vague for the newbie with words such as ‘passively observe’ and ‘surrender’. Previous to learning about phasing, they will have tried every other method in the past but failed. Because of this it’s the best method for everyone.
The My Big Toeists Devout followers of Thomas Campbell. Usually over the age of 40. They use very frustrating circular argument for those who dare to contradict Tom Campbell and his theories. Can be seen in Campbell lectures throughout the world. Can be misconstrued as a cult to the outsider. Would happily have a copy of MBT in every hotel room in every country. Everything is DATA.
The armchair APer They will have read EVERYTHING… but just don’t seem to project. However. This doesn’t dissuade them from telling actual projectors what it is and the best way to do it. Prone to YoYo thinking due to their noncommittal attitude and whatever book/website they are reading at the time.
The Newbie aaaah… the newbie. Has also read everything they think they need to know before they attempt projecting only to realise it’s not as easy as getting a phone app. Will vehemently try every binaural beat there is and will say ‘almost there’ frequently. Will have success and want to know if they succeeded. It’s all open ground… demons, silver chords and possession is entirely possible.
I will say.. it takes one to know one… I have been a few of these in the past.. and I hope it made you smile a little.
There are probably a few ‘groupings’ I missed.
If anyone has any other groupings they want to add, please feel free to leave a comment or join in the thread on the forums! 🙂
