OK, folks. I see you overwhelmingly prefer the compressed version. Thank you for all your comments.
Now let me take it a step further.
My worry is that people will not recognize that the compressed list of pages IS a list. (By “pages” I mean “posts” that have been turned into non-chronologically-arranged or permanently-located articles.) For instance, I notice that one reader may not have been aware that below the banner there is also a compressed list of pages. Is that so for any other readers? Have you recognized that there is a compressed list of pages under the banner?
The advantage of having a list on the righthand side is that no one can fail to see that the pages exist.
Another reader, who had been coming to the site for some time, said she did not even know that pages were listed in the righthand column so my concern is for new readers who want background on what’s happening. I don’t want them too not to be aware that pages exist.
Any comments on that? It would be helpful for instance to hear from anyone who actually did not recognize that pages exist on the site or that the sub-banner list referred to nested pages, etc.
Thank you. This is very helpful to me. I also welcome any other comments on how the site can be improved.
Ryan is working to clear up the clutter in the “Pages” column, on the righthand side of the site.
What he proposes is compressing the many pages listed for the site into a shorter list of parent pages. These parent pages then break out into subpages when clicked on.
That approach is similar to the parent pages listed in the banner, at the top of the site.
Now I should mention at the outset that I’ve come across readers who actually don’t know that there is a long list of articles appended to the righthand column of the site. Boy, was that a shock to me!
But leaving that aside, I need to know from you whether you prefer to have all the subpages broken out and listed, as they are at present in the section of the righthand column that starts with:
2012 Scenario Pages Start Here
or whether you’d be happier having simple parent pages without a visible list of subpages (i.e., the list of subpages would be hidden).
Let me see if I can suggest the difference in appearance between the two:

(2) The Way It Would Be
THE MECHANICS OF ASCENSION
THE 2012 SCENARIO
Yes, that’s the general idea.
The second list shows parent pages only and would open up when you click on them.
The advantage of the change is that it takes a long list of pages and reduces it to a list of parent pages only so the site looks cleaner. The disadvantage is that you won’t be able to read at a glance all the titles of the articles.
I’ll open this particular page for comments and if you could append your preference here I’d appreciate it. Please don’t send me an email on the subject, thanks. You can indicate your choice if you wish by a simp0le 1 or 2.
I also want to append this really sweet collection of statements of the purpose of life, which readers have added to the parent page for “The Purpose of Life.” I had not seen it up till now and very much enjoyed reading your comments on the subject. Thank you for that.

It takes a long time for us, mankind, to realize who we are and what our purpose is here on earth. But slowly we are coming to an awareness that we are spirit beings, and that our true selves are spirit. It is the natural man the ego that gives us all of the negative fields that we either choose to believe, or we stop them in the subconscious mind, through the belief of our spiritual connection with our creator.

Life transformation only occours from within. It is this shift in conscious awareness on a spiritual level of wisdom and purpose that will make the difference to mankind.

The Purpose of life?
It’s my understanding that it is to have Right Human Relations.Those five words sum up the purpose of life. In other words, the purpose of life is for us to have correct, fair, just, honest, respectful relationships with everyone, regardless of race, gender, and other differences. We have to eventually (in this or a future lifetime) grasp that we’re all members of one huge family and to see that it is very important for us to treat everyone with respect. When we are doing that, we are maturing (evolving) as a group, and as individuals. It can be done with or without religion.
There are karmic laws that say that the truth must be shared and spread around
when feasible, for the good of the human family. According to the Ageless Wisdom Teachings – service to humanity is what turns the evolutionary lever. IOW- If we want to really move forward we have to do things that help the human family.

The purpose of “life” is to live and beget “life”. That and no other.

To Communicate with your TRUE SELF which is a part of LOVE or GOD or LIGHT or CREATOR or BUDDA or JESUS or WHATEVER YOU WANT…..is the beginning of your own ENLIGHTENMENT/ASCENTION/CONVERGENCE.

The Purpose of Life is knowing we are part of the Human Family all of us six Billion Human beings and growing on Plant Earth, we are all Love and Light and are apart of the new millennium energy that started in 2000 the begining of the 21 Century.
People are waking up all over the planet and saying we know Love is the purpose of Life for us all to give our fellow man and woman as we near 2012 and on; and believe it or not our family is on the other side of the veil as well.

I don’t know about you guys, but the purpose of my life is life itself. Not living to achieve something or worst – to survive, but simply to live. To be.
There is no destination, just the road. The purpose of my life is to live every moment, co-creating the next one.
So what can one do in the moment? One can experience with form. Energy creating energy. Consciouness becoming conscious of itself. A piece of consciouness that has been given the greatest gift: free choice – looking all around, wondering about the big infinity, looking inside, wondering about the small infinity… A small piece realising it is not “a piece” but part of something great, part of everything…

The purpose of life is self-discovery and actualization of that self. That is what Joseph Campbell referred to as “follow your bliss”. What you love in the deepest part of your heart is what you are here to express. Nothing more, nothing less. Creativity is the only reason to be alive, in a body, so that one can see the results of their creations. Being connected to your heart means being connected to your soul and therefore knowing you are Divine. As a Divine being you get on with the business of expressing those Divine gifts you came here to deliver. As you do what you came here to do you express love and help the Creator, of which you are a part, to grow. There is only one reason for life and that is to grow! What else is there to do on such a fine planet that offers so many opportunities for creative expression. Each act of creativity is both a prayer and a gift to the One who sent us.
Let us celebrate that.

How many times have I just sat and looked at my hand, being amazed at all the many lines, indentations, in short it’s tactile and physical existance? The wonderment in the simple fact that although a person next to me may also have a hand, sharing similar appearance of lines and indentations ~ his or her fingerprint is ultimately unique, and to my knowledge can never be traced over by mine.
