Default What's Your Attitude When You Have PAD or PAE?

So what's your attitude when you have PAD or PAE?

I thought of this this morning, when I was taking a shower before going to church. I watched Avatar last night and it was mind blowing and incredibly moving. I didn't want to leave the adventure, I didn't want to leave Pandora or Jake or the Omaticaya or Neytiri. It was a story that should never end. But this morning I just felt like being to myself, just me and my thoughts, talk to you guys and girls, but just stay home. I was glad I went to church because I started talking again and was feeling better, but PAD I feel is important to me.

That was just my example, what about you brothers and sisters?

Clinging onto the memories of the movie, but it seeps in the gaps between my fingers like i'm escaping from a dream. Expressing my emotions by sketching neytiri and writing out stories helps me get over it, maily being on here. Is is acceptance for my pad i want, or help in dealing with it? Either way, i have that urge to cuddle up against a fern, and breathe in the perfumes of the plants everyday.

I also find that PAD is important to me, it's kind of like a teaching method. When I have PAD i tend to think a lot about important things and important questions in my life, and i almost always find answers to those questions. When ever i have PAD i learn a lot about myself. that is why i PAD is important to me i really learn a lot whenever i have it

PAE stands for Post Avatar Euphoria.

When I have this, it's the single greatest feeling in the entire world. Colours are so vivid, every texture I touch feels so good and I just feel totally invincible, like nothing can knock me down. Every single little thing makes you smile, even the supposedly bad things. It is amazing.

I love that feeling... something that would normally make me upset I just look at it and laugh. Like said, one of the single greatest feeling in the world

Whenever I have PAD, I immedietly watch Fight Club, and I tend to have a seething anger at modern society, about just how perverted the world has become. I swear, it makes me want to scream. I hate seeing people waste their entire lives doing 9-5 jobs that, deep down, they hate, but aren't willing to admit. I hate seeing people believe that the sum of their lives lies in material possessions. I hate seeing people oblivious or nonchalant about the destruction of the natural environment. We are slowly creeping toward the world of 2154, but no one seems to care. Sure, we care here, but the average person is more concerned with what the economy is doing, or the latest mischief that celebrities are getting themselves into.

I want to firebomb ever Wal-Mart and every office building. I want to see corrupt politicians suffer at the hands of the same people whom they've pledged to represent. I want to see every business CEO hanged with their own ties. I want to see this world purged of the filth that infests it.

Sometimes I wonder though, is this anger from legitimate concern (though I AM very concerned about the sustainability of Earth), or am I simply being bitter about not being a Na'vi on Pandora?

On the other hand, when I have PAE, I feel on top of the world.

When I have PAD, I just sit and think for hours, and if anyone interrupts me I get mad. As far as PAE, I've never had it, so I couldn't tell you.

I've had P.A.D. once, and it lasted about 5 minutes. Every other time it's P.A.E., so when I read about all this sadness I think, "Why so glum? Be hopeful! Excited! Joyful!"

My attitude during P.A.D.: N/A. Never fully discovered.

My attitude during P.A.E.: I love everyone at this point. I want to hug my sister (though, I usually have that urge anyway without Avatar), I want to sit down and think; close my eyes... Sometimes I look at the sky for a while. Then there's this urge to eat a ton of food. (?) At the end of every viewing I've had I've clapped, but everytime I exited the theater I slipped back into the real world. It's not a bad thing for me, though. I'm glad I live in this world. I don't have a dying love for Neytiri, either, just because I know she isn't real. I wish she was, but I don't let it get to me. I still prefer earth girls (though I've never had a girlfriend ).

PAD makes you able to self-reflect I guess , which is an important gift that most people have lost , it makes you ask questions , my way to deal with what I conclude through Avatar is thinking , since I know I probably won't be able to change things alone since the problems mankind is facing are simply gigantic , if I would think about it all the time ,and seriously tried to fix things , I bet I'd go mental after some time .

I don't know if I can say I had/have "PAD" , but Avatar made me think alot , maybe depressive too sometimes , but I'm thankful for that since it's another thing that keeps me going , and doesn't make me want to stand still and give up on myself .

Im not sure ive ever had PAE.

When I have PAD, I get the urge to paint or write. Before I watched Avatar I was in a huuuge art block, so im grateful for PAD, lol. Hooray, I can draw again!

Otherwise, its not really a BAD feeling, but not a "euphoric" one either. I dont know.

For me it's the opposite. Never experience PAE always PAD.
My attitude is exactly the same as what the other member write about the PAD. I don't know why, but even if I depress I still want the strange feeling it give me.

It also sometimes kind of gives you a longing, and blows a void into you , which you just can't fill , you know ,what you need to fill it is out there , but you just can't reach it , the void stays empty and leaves you with a hunger .

Yeah it's something like, I can't describe my feeling better then that, but it's more then void. It's like a void, who have already been filled and I constantly looking for what filled that void.
Pandora seem to be what I am looking for, but it's unreachable.

Same here. I haven't experienced PAE, but I think I've experienced PAD (is there a thread somewhere where people have described PAD? I'm not sure whether what I'm feeling counts as PAD -- but whatever it is it's pretty strong...). When I don't have PAD, I feel empty inside; when I do, I feel like part of me is missing and I'm desperately longing for ... something, I'm not sure what. I can't describe it, but I do know that it's a feeling that somehow makes me feel more ... I don't know what word to use, maybe "complete," but that's not quite it.

When I've got PAD, I just want to sit down and think (and listen to the OST -- it keeps the longing feeling somewhat at bay). Things are too busy right now to do that, but I may find myself just sitting and thinking for hours on end after my finals are over.
