For now, this is an informal End-User License Agreement, as this is not an institutional web site or a web site in some manner of professional practice.
By using this site you agree and acknowledge that this site is in no way a source of professional advice, and the author cannot be held responsible for any misinterpretation of the content—particularly with regard to what would constitute advice.
This is a personal web site brought to you by the pseudonym John Æonid (A.K.A. John Aeonid) and is for entertainment and informational purposes only. Any and all users, viewers, and readers assume all risk of any use or application of the content provided under the domain aeonid.info. In no event shall the writer represented by John Æonid or aeonid.info, as owned by, John Æonid, or related affiliates be liable to any party for any direct, indirect, implied, punitive, special, incidental or other consequential damages arising directly or indirectly from any use or misuse of the information contained herein, which is provided “as is” with no express or implied warranty of any kind.
For any matter in which advice might be sought, the user agrees to accept the burden and risk of knowing when a matter warrants professional advice and to seek that advice and/or council from a qualified professional, of which no hint, implication, or suggestion of qualifications, license, certification or such is provided here.
If you have any doubts about what that means or how you would know if something warrants professional advice, THEN YOU MUST SEEK PROFESSIONAL ADVICE.
THIS IS A PERSONAL WEB SITE—to express a personal viewpoint—not a professional web site, with no intent to regard what is written here as advice. Also, this is a place for RECREATIONAL DISCUSSION of philosophic, poetic, and spiritual ideas, as well as the culture around them. It is a given that those who participate in such culture often become habituated to self-help practices, as well as complimentary medicine (the latter of which I do not intend to cover in depth on this site), and as much as there are those who are already habituated as such, they are likely to visit this web site—and quite possibly often. The best I can hope to do is to encourage the idea that professional advice and conventional medicine should always be used in conjunction with anything regarded as “alternative”. (Note also that my use of the word "alternative" is according to the cultural norm, and I prefer to see it as a misnomer that seriously needs to be corrected, which is why I would rather see it called "complimentary", because those who have endured college, medical school, and residency deserve to be complimented and bowed to for their superior and exemplary efforts in insuring that they “do no harm”.) Indeed, professional advice and conventional medical advice should be considered primary for serious situations and conditions.
And, do not say that I am only writing this to cover my tail. I MEAN IT. I would seriously be saddened if you used only alternative or self-help approaches—when a combination is always better—simply because the results will be better and really bad things might be avoided. Note that we cannot have only one perspective; there is no healing or expansion on such a narrow and adversarial path. And, if the situation is serious, get it addressed right away by all of the relevant professionals—TODAY.
So, my only advice is to seek conventional professional advice—in combination with and in addition to anything else you may be exploring. What I offer here is an an alternative view point—but not one that should deliberately ignore the conventional wisdom. If you are one to explore without the safety line of the conventional viewpoint, then I cannot be responsible for the result. I would much rather that we explore the contrast between these realms by exploring both in parallel than be locked into a narrow alternative view. And you cannot do that if you are so oppositional that you close your eyes to the possibility that the conventional wisdom may still hold some valuable perspectives. I am adamant that the two must go together. And, in reading anything on this site, aeonid.info and anything from the pseudonym John Æonid and any affiliates, you agree to seek conventional advice as described here. Do not limit yourself to only a single perspective.
This place is only for the discussion of ideas, and I want the ideas to liberate. But, it takes conventional professionals to determine whether that liberation is sane or whether it is a fluffy prison—in which a fluffy, alternative prison might be choking the life out of you. If the conventional professionals say you are healthy enough to use this site, then you are welcome here. Otherwise, I must welcome you to seek professional help elsewhere and forego any further reading here.
If you are a skeptic, atheist, philosopher, or are otherwise in a position requiring or otherwise aspiring to a rational perspective, you accept responsibility for your own reasoning and that you will not project any implication of an attempt to imply that the writings of this web site constitute advice or fail to warn of the risks for treating these writings as such—when clearly the previous section shows otherwise. If you fail to exhibit rational reasoning skills, then you are hereby obligated—by way of the code of ethics associated with your claimed label or the one to which you aspire, as evidenced by you reading this section—to voluntarily forfeit any honorable label of rationality and go back to the PREVIOUS SECTION and read it, fully accepting that the whole of it fully and completely applies to you.

I've replaced the home page, though the old is retained, and I'm going deeper into shining light on the shadow, taking more risks..
