    Nah, it's gotta rhyme with digital lynching. How about digital pinching?

    I'm still a bit clueless about why multiple people are citing the "summer of '19" as a really bad time on here. I really didn't notice it being any better or worse than it normally is. The dogpilings (such as they are) and misrepresentations have always been a thing haven't they?

    Weren't you persuaded to quit the forum at least once in that time frame?

    Yeah, I honestly think the idea is there - I believe that body is a self-regulating system that you can communicate to. So if it allowed anything like cancer in it, then well - try to understand the reason why.

    Don't think so. Unless we're talking about southern hemisphere summer.

    What if your body is allowing things like kidneys to happen. Can you will those away too?

    That does shine some light on how it keeps happening.

    I am quite convinced that it is cognitive dissonance and popular triggers causing this, not knowing intent... most of the time.

    Well tumours are formed from our own cells growing. So are kidneys. What's the difference? Could we stop our hair and nails growing by sheer willpower too?

    We could, but how would that benefit us? Body wants to survive. That's the program.
