I believe this is in the correct forum... if not - you know what to do


Anyway, this is a quick one.

Has anyone ever experienced those moments where you see/hear/read something/someone that you either haven't seen before or at least not for a very long time. After seeing whatever it is it starts to appear EVERYWHERE. For no apparent reason.

It's almost as if seeing/reading/hearing something has triggered it to pop-up constantly in your reality. I'll try give an example.

I had the TV on mute and noticed 2 people from some reality show - I didn't care to know who they were - just that they were dancers. Next thing I know I click on a YouTube video that has nothing to do with that show/those people and they were there - hosting/taking part. I ask myself.. If I hadn't seen that show on TV would i have clicked on that video and seen them?

Another - I was talking with my friend about Pokemon (to reminisce) and we somehow came on to Evie's evolutions (a Pokemon for those who don't know) I hadn't thought about it in a very long time before this moment. Next thing i know, I see Evie's evolutionary chart on the back of a freaking NEWS PAPER. What? Why it was there - I can't fully remember I just remember thinking HUH!?

Anyone else experience this? I've wondered if seeing something heightens our awareness to it. But the 2 examples I gave were 2 off the top of my head - It happens fairly often. I can't think it's just a coincidence, though it might be, It just seems too weird for me..

Anyone? Hahaha

Often it's because some aspect of the subject is being promoted in some form of media.

The word for it is 'trending'.

the matrix or universe or whatever you may call it makes use of intelligent caching by stacking similar "events" together for optimization

It's called the law of attraction. Sounds like it's especially strong for you. Try to attract positive things, don't think too negatively. I've once attracted a $100 bonus merely by thinking about that exact amount a lot over a couple of weeks, my sister attracted more than an $800 bonus, but her attractions get "rectified" and she ends up with unexpected expenses if she gets too much money.


Speaking of which, I need to start using it again... It's not as easy as it sounds to stay completely focused on a positive idea.

Ever since my longboard accident, I've been seeing and hearing the phrase "Wake Up." It's almost to the point where I'm going insane.

Maybe its because you start to pay more attention to this ''new'' word or phrase, so you see it everywhere (・∪・)

From Wikipedia...




Synchronicity is the experience of two or more events as meaningfully related, where they are unlikely to be causally related. The subject sees it as a meaningful coincidence. The concept of synchronicity was first described by Carl Jung, a Swiss psychologist, in the 1920s.[1]

The concept does not question, or compete with, the notion of causality (however critics state that the causality, statistics and probability theorems, is enough for explaining cases of "synchronicity"[2], which are in fact "normal events of low probability"[3]). It maintains that just as events may be connected by a causal line, they may also be connected by meaning. A grouping of events by meaning need not have an explanation in terms of a concrete sense of cause and effect.

In addition to Jung, Arthur Koestler wrote extensively on synchronicity in The Roots of Coincidence

i think its just to do with the fact that u just dont notice things unless u have been recently disgussing/seeing it. for example i never noticed many rovers driving arouns but now i own one i see them everywhere. its simply a matter of the brain seeking out the familiar

Similar sense here.

About six months ago I started noticing people prefacing answers and explanations with the word "So".

Drives me nutz.

YES!!!!

If I think about a specific episode of a sitcom it will be aired on tv within a few days.

Not sure why it happens. I'm not psychic but it happens all the time!

We're in the Matrix!

Thats almost like when you think of a person you havn't seen in a few years and later that day you see them. that has happened to me to many times to be a coincidence. It makes you say "WTF!" out loud.

Right but was it a 'coincidence'?

Yeah its happened to me too! I recently saw a letter in a friends van from a water treatment company I had never heard of or seen. The following three days I saw 4 of their vehicles and a small ad in a newspaper.

Brain: melted.

Serious question: Did you suffer a head injury in the accident?
Weird things happen with head injuries.

Thankfully never! I mean, i've bumped my head but who hasn't..... I have suffered with Depersonalization... but this has happened to people I know who haven't experienced this.

I'd say it's more than just "brain looking for what's familiar" although, as i originally mentioned, it idea has crossed my mind.

It's just TOO bizarre... it's not things that i would just be "attracted" to its things i wouldn't normally see. A pokemon evolution chart in a NEWS PAPER? I mean... i wasn't looking for it... hahaha

I've had that kind of experience!

In my job I go to lots of places daily and some I'd be lucky to go to once every couple of years BUT.. On my way to work I could think "Oh, I haven't been to such and such place for years" and yes.. Believe it or not, I'd be sent there that very day.

It really does feel like that if you think about it, it manifests into reality.

There is a gas station here that sells really good biscuits and has a wide selection of porn, and they have t shirts that say "biscuits and porn". I was waiting in line for a biscuit with my cousin and looking at the t shirt thinking "what would my (very religious) boss think if he saw me in that shirt?" I turned around and he was walking through the door. My cousin turned to me and said "I'm guessing he's not here for the porn!"
