Shoot. Now it looks like we won't be going because of conflicting commitments. Something about feeding dogs and running out of time.

I missed it. But I have been to many of these affairs and this would have been just a flavor of the year expedition. Almost just printing the list of exhibitors tells me what to expect from them in the coming year. Intentionality is the big thing now, along with a boat load of quack healing methods that are always a mainstay at these events.

Being there matters though, because you can't get quite get a grasp on how big this movement is until you view it up close. It's the anti TAM in a way, only the new age expo draws many more people to it...

I'm probably being generous, there. Hey, let's get rid of the folks who simply moved a bit of their storefront to the Expo, as well as the tarot readers, mediums and aura seers, too:

Now this is a lot more managable, in terms of trying to figure out just what the Expo is all about.

And apparently something weird is gonna happen in four years.

I noticed that. But apparently many of these people already have a good head-start on the weirdness business.

Some people take Skepticism is a religion. It isn't its to question everything till ultimately finding the truth. If that is your case then we are on the same path then.

Cool?

It sounds like a giant retard fest. The average IQ of the nation would go up by a couple points if the place had been firebombed.

Quite possibly, but the smell of the burning bodies, mixed with incense and other herbal props would be truly horrible.

Extreme aromatherapy.
