I also know from reading the posts that Greg hated every minute in the seed and has alot of pent up anger still from his time there and I respect that....but when someone comes along with wonderful carefree memories of love and peace from the seed....Greg comes down on them with Cult this and Cult that.

This forum should be a place that we can say what we want to without the shit hitting the fan and offending someone.



Man, somehow I missed this and never addressed it.

Anon, you are just wrong about your perceptions. While I did resent being put in the seed, there was a period of time while I was there that I bought into the whole seedling thing.  That passed quickly once I graduated.

I am not angry at my seed experience. Hell, it was over 30 years ago.  I moderate this forum for the sole purpose of discussion because I think for a lot of people it is important to confront what happened to them, and it is fun discussing issues with people with a common background.

Anon, this is a place where you can say whatever you want, but all forums, and this one included, have people that don't agree.  Expect that on a forum.  All I ask is we all respect each other and avoid personal attacks.

I do have strong opinions on this type of "treatment" for juveniles, but my opinion is just that, no more or less valid than yours or anyone else's here.  I will continue to express my opinion when the mood moves me.

 I wish you knew how hard I have worked to foster an environment of inclusion of everybody that went to the Seed on all sides of the issue and not just make this a soapbox for one side or the other. But that vision of the SDF requires participation and understanding of the goal of this website, and forums in general require tough skin sometimes because people openly express various opinions and even get testy with each other, and not everybody is able to carry on that type of conversation.

That being said, I am proud of the way the people in this forum have kind of become a community of people, not divided along pro-seed or anti-seed sentiments.

I hope you are also enjoying this forum and hope you participate often regardless of how you view your time spent in your childhood warehouse.

Not at all.

How many forums have you been around?

This is more peacefull than say, the St Pete times forum or just about any political forum in the entire cyberworld.


It is a devisive issue and I think many people (but not all) have been able to breach their differences here. I correspond with people on all sides of the issue.

Either Pompano Jr. High, or Fort Lauderdale Christian, depending on the year.

Most of you probably remember when lots of people used to claim to hear all sorts of hidden messages in popular music...backward masking,etc. I was just sitting here listening to "Creque Alley" by the mamas and papas and remembered something just as weird that originated from seedlings. When I was a newcomer several oldcomers were talking about this song (creque alley). Some were suggesting that the song has a line that says; "Mitchie wants to go to the Seed." This was even brought up in a rap once. There was also the suggestion (delusion) that the peter frampton song 'Show me the way' refered to the seed.

This all seems so weird and funny now. Creque alley was written in 1967...several years before art started the seed. Peter Frampton writing songs about the seed? :lol: A bunch of silly kids. I suppose it isn't that surprising given the seedling delusion that we were so special and chosen...surely the world must revolve around us. Manson thought the beatles were sending messages to him in their songs too.  BTW, that line from Creque Alley is "Mitchie wants to go to the sea." Duh.

Truth, being limitless, unconditioned, unapproachable by any path whatsoever, cannot be organized; nor should any organization be formed to lead or to coerce people along any particular path. You must climb towards the Truth. It cannot be \'stepped down\'

Remember when Chris Farley did a mock interview on SNL with Paul McCartney, and he asked if that stuff about him being dead was a hoax, and Paul said, "well, I'm not dead"?.....that was awesome!
