This is a publicly visible forum for fans of the Seth material as dictated by Jane Roberts and transcribed by Robert F. Butts, and for constructive discourse on the ideas presented therein.
Facebook has our largest community
Head over to Fans of the Seth Material for thriving discussion.
Seth Talks is our most discoverable community
Every post here will appear in search engines, making it even more public and visible than Facebook will ever be.
Although Seth Talks participation is small in comparison to Fans, we receive constant traffic from readers who would have never found us otherwise.
If Facebook isn’t your thing, and you don’t mind our smaller numbers, stick around. Maybe one day we’ll eclipse Fans. Since I manage both, perhaps some technology driven cross-over is possible.
Many. The forum will guide you as you go, but here’s a list.
You are welcome to go by your first, full, or a nickname. Your forum profile will not link to your Facebook, Twitter, or similar, regardless of how you login.
Less, but the prominence of search encourages centralized conversation, unlike Facebook where the same topic is often repeated with no reference to its predecessors.
Facebook is geared toward a long initial post followed by shorter comments that quickly become lost. Here it’s not uncommon for a reply to be longer than the initial post, and it’s easy to quote multiple people (select their text) for improved readability.

In early 2008 I created the Fans of the Seth Material Facebook group, setting it “Public” from the beginning.
In 2014, growth and management of the group became difficult due to Facebook’s lack of adequate tools, so I created Seth Talks, which is ripe with features.
In 2015 Facebook drastically improved their tools, and the driving force for migration vanished. Now they occupy separate but important purposes.
