Imaginative Worlds Vision
Imaginativeworlds.com is a community centered on The Paranormal, The Metaphysical, The Conspiratorial, The Human Condition/Psychology/Sociology. This includes all related venues, interests, media/media sources, news etc.
Along with the above, this also includes current political situations on a national and global scale relative to the above topics; it does *not include partisan politics which we define as promoting a specific political party or candidate vs. another, my party/candidate is better than yours, degrading political debate, specific faction, cause etc.
*partisan - definition from Merriam Webster
1 : a firm adherent to a party , faction, cause, or person; especially : one exhibiting blind, prejudiced, and unreasoning allegiance
We are also about a sense of community, camaraderie, friendship, fun while on the quest to seek the truth of what is, what isn't and how to figure all that out…the things that go bump in the night and the unexplained….the Mysteries of the Universe, the Cosmos and our place within.
We are a Discussion Forum and a Community, however most importantly we hope to become a Repository and Knowledge Center for all who are interested in these topics, regardless of their knowledge level, expertise, stage of their journey etc. All are welcome from newbies to seasoned veterans in these areas!!
The environment we foster here at Imaginative Worlds is one of learning, sharing, question, debate, where all ideas, opinions, points of view questions etc., are welcome, provided they are posted and discussed in a respectful and civil manner.
