Default I felt that feeling again!

I felt it again. Just all of a sudden a picture of Neytiri flashed in my head, and I felt that desire to be back on Pandora. Just that over whelming desire to be back there. And I felt like I needed to watch the movie again, even though I haven't seen it since it was in theaters. It was kinda nice, but kinda depressing. I just felt that need, and still feel it now, to go back to Pandora, and run through the trees, and bee a blue Na'vi on Pandora.

Awesome! I've made Avatar such a big part of my life lately, with ToS and all, that those short bursts of feeling I used to have now constantly run through every aspect of my life They aren't moments anymore, they're everything.

I mean it's depressing that I can get to Pandora. But it's great to see it again in my mind. And it's great to want to run through the forests of Pandora with that burning desire.

I feel that too. Though I'm just as likely to want to run through the woods here on Earth as well.

I haven't, in a while and this fact as such is already making me sad I almost miss PAD cos I was so close to everything Avatar is, all this "multifaceted diamond" as someone here put it - but the feeling was so acute that it was painful.

But I also know I must give this feeling, this "call of Pandora" its time, it comes when the moment is right. Like a sudden flash vision if I am listening to an Avatar CD - and I am suddenly there. It can wake up any moment. Recently, Earth & Pandora were getting closer in my mind, mostly thanks to ToS; I guess it must be something like a qualitative leap: when "the critical mass" is reached - then it will strike again. This is what it was like until now.

I don't know. I only know I must trust it. i can never be prepared for it but it is always welcome .

Actually, i'll join you in having these feelings again... I know for a fact that over the past few days i've been feeing the connection with the world of Avatar and the need to feel like i've been there again, even if it is just through the medium of imagination and thoughts that I have. I've also been feeling the need to watch the film again, but as i'm unable to get hold of a copy at the moment, that will be impossible for at least the next few months.

I think it's safe to say i've been suffering with some bad PAD myself, as you say, wanting to be a part of the world physically... It's getting me down somewhat, too - knowing that it isn't possible.

Good to hear Fkeu'itan

I feel like im getting less and less connected to this physical world as I imagine more and more pandora. It's a trade off because I want to be connected to this world, but also Pandors.

And Pali last time I tried that I pooped my pants.... 3times

I never stopped. Pandora is beautiful, and it's somewhere where the problems of Earth no longer apply.

Ahem. That's pretty bad Theorist.
Maybe you could try running early in the morning?

As for the feeling with Pandora, I always had it but I'm just as likely to see the beauty in Earth as well..We have to try to protect and sustain her.

Yeah, I've had that feeling lately as well. It's almost refreshing in a way but also, like you said, a bit depressing. I guess it's better than feeling nothing, half the time I feel like I'm on autopilot.

I dunno though, wouldn't that be leaving the problems of earth to everyone else? I'd rather try to fix the problems with like minded people.

I want to fix the problems on Earth too. But the hardest part for me is realizing how little people care. It's hard when you try to show someone you care about how beautiful nature is, but they don't see it, and they just shoot it down. Sometimes the cause feels lost to me, because people have the knowledge of what is happening to the Earth. One can't say we aren't destroying nature. (In a first world country I'm speaking, mostly U.S., as it's my only experience.) People here know what we're doing to Earth, and they just don't care. That's the frustrating part.

I sometimes don't know if it's possible to change other people. If I just gotta help the earth how I can personally, or if people actually can be "made aware." Because people are aware, it's no secret of what's happening, I don't know if one actually can raise awareness much more, because people know what's going on, they just don't seem to care.

I think half the problem is that people offload the problem onto others, or won't accept their part in destroying the earth because they say it's the companies/governments and organisations fault. I think that people can change their ways, well most anyway. Though they need to see the problem with their own eyes, see how they are contributing to it and make pragmatic solutions to the problem. Look at the success with volunteer cleanup groups ect.

I have to agree with Theorist, I think this is why I long for a place like Pandora to live in, as well... It seems like we've already gone far past the ideas of smaller-scale sustainable living, and the 'system' we all live by is too far dug in to ever change. That the only way we can go from here is to use technology to keep us alive, once the biosphere enevitably collapses, and we end up in a 2154 world, or something akin to Blade Runner. No green, no nature, only humans, machines and their buildings. Kind of like we're on a one-way ticket.

Pandora's not necessarily about forgetting everything about Earth, rather, it's a place that Earth used to be, but an Earth (and actually, a way of life) we can never get back to.

Blaming governments is scapegoating. You can't say 'it's everyone's responsibility' and 'lol governments' at the same time. Yes, it needs a greater level of cooperation, but that means EVERYONE - not jus governments. A great example is the world's general failure ti implement population control.
