Our brains have always kept us ahead of the animals even if we didn't have weapons. Today we have the best technology and still accidentts in nature happen. People get killed by a dog or a bear or a shark. Or fall down and break their neck. That doesn't take us off the top of the heap. We were never anything but top banana. Weapons or not. reply to: Vroomfondel

So you are saying that even though we have the technology some real predators manage to take a few of us down but if we get rid of the technology...that wont happen? Without technology we would be lunch. A couple hungry dogs could rip a mensa member apart before he could calculate the number of fang marks per second he was receiving.

There is a point to being smart. But, typically its the pointy teeth that are smart, not the flat ones. Pointy teeth eat other animals. You have to be smart to do that. Flat teeth eat grass. You don't have to be very smart to hunt grass. The real predators are not only smart, but they are designed for a single purpose and they have mastered it.

Those feelings can sometimes be triggered by deja vu .


We are all connected via empathy. When something horrible happens to large groups of people, it can send a "dread" wave through our collective consciousness. That is purely my own opinion in the matter.
(Its like when people make the joke.. The jedi's are going to feel this! *blows up a planet or two*)

The only reason I'm replying is because you stated that this purely your own opinion on the matter. In my opinion, I think your genuinely onto something and I believe we're going to see more and more about this in coming years. It may well the case that we'll start to see empath training to heighten the power of the collective consciousness.

You should, if your really interested, pursue this line of thought with as much research and learning you can.

Watch Iceland. It's a possible slow motion doom porn in action that the press ignores because it doesn't look like the catastrophe it could become.

Kind of like the movie "Speed 2"... though slow moving, that was a much bigger disaster than it first appeared to be...

Do you ever get an overwhelming feeling of something bad is about to happen?

I do, sometimes.

Its not like a prediction of a specific event.

Just a feeling.

When you get that feeling, post about it here.

Thursday night, 9/11/14, my hometown Steelers at Baltimore Ravens, beautiful accessible Inner Harbor nearby, nationally televised game near DC with millions watching, starts at 8:30 PM....just when most of that anniversary day goes by without any problems....

NOT A PREDICTION....for I consider Doom Porn "for entertainment purposes only"....but as you requested, just a strange feeling that played out in my mind when I first saw the NFL schedule, even before your thread today

I just wish the Steelers weren't in that "Black Sunday" movie from years back....maybe that's what triggered that thought?

I have a feeling that the east coast will experience a hurricane three weeks from now. Just a feeling. Mid Atlantic region.

Most of my bad feelings DON'T come true. But the one I had recently was that traffic and air travel would be stopped for a number of weeks on the east coast of the US and part of Europe. A hurricane would explain both or possibly Bardabungo blowing its lid in Iceland. If its going to happen, it'll be this month or the beginning of October.

Nice to know if something bad does happen that you'll find it entertaining. You may want to reconsider what you think of as entertainment.

No all I said was as the smartest lifeforms on the planet we have always been at the top of the food chain. What I didn't say, and gosh you read an awfully lot into a simple statement , is that being smarter will stop a bad dog from biting but being smart we usually know to keep away from bad dogs that bite. We invent things like fences and muzzels and strong leashes. reply to: Vroomfondel

I hope to find the game itself entertaining - I don't hope or expect anything bad to happen, other than a Steeler's loss.

I respect your opinion but I must disagree. At least to a point. In his own environment modern man is top of the food chain. Put him in the water, or in a jungle, different story. And yes we are smart enough to know it may be necessary to avoid a certain animal, but we weren't always so smart. I honestly think there was a time, possibly not too long ago, when we weren't at the top of the chain. Just my opinion... )

I've got a bad feeling...

It could be because of the anxiety from the 6.0 South Napa Quake I just experienced, all up close and personal.

A few weeks before that quake I told my husband that I thought we were going to have an earthquake and had put most of my antiques in a nice safe soft spot. The night before the quake my husband told me I was being paranoid, so almost everything was put back up. Less than 12 hours later we had the quake and almost all of my antiques broke.

Anxiety has led me to checking all kinds of earthquake and disaster sites multiple times per day, it's a problem but the doctor says it's normal.

So, I'm freaking out about this:

Here we have several earthquakes along the San Andreas Fault System south of San Francisco closer to San Jose, near the epicenter of the 1989 6.8 Loma Prieta Earthquake (The World Series Quake.)

M2.9 Ridgemark, Ca 9/4/14
M2.9 Ladera, Ca 9/4/14
M3.4 Gilroy, Ca 9/1/2014
M2.7 Gonzales, Ca 8/31/14
M3.0 Ridgemark, California 8/29/14
M3.4 Ridgemark, Ca 8/29/14

I've got a bad feeling there will be another big earthquake, at least a 6.0 somewhere near this area.

But don't you understand those are circumstances. Yes there are dangerous environments. Who's denying that? The fact still remains that we are and always have been the top of the food chain. None of those scenarios you've presented changes that fact. I'm getting the idea that you're just not understanding what it means or you're not able to accept another's thoughts. Sorry for that but look it up if you really doubt me. Man is the smartest therefore the top. Yeah a shark can kill us. So can a knife or fire or electricity but you don't put those things ahead of us. We use knives and fire and electricity as tools. Even though they're deadly. Circumstances. Electricity from an outlet lights my lamp. Electricity from the sky kills. That doesn't mean that in that circumstance electricity is smarter than us. See?
And man does have instincts that can warn about impending danger or threats to our existence. On top of everything else we have that though we've been indoctrinated to believe we don't or told by our respective religious leaders that it's evil to acknowledge it.

It's understandable that you're anxious. But California gets those little shakes almost daily. You're just more in tune with them right now. Sorry about your antiques. I'm a collector too. Antique and vintage dinnerware and porcelains. I can set a real pretty table. E bay has a lot to offer if your looking to replace stuff. The good will too. You'd be surprised what people give them. One man's junk is another man's treasure as they say.
Hope you can find some inner peace and return to normal very soon.

I'm calling this on September 11, 2014

Cumbre Vieja on La Palma Island in the Canaries will be hit by stolen Libyan airliners creating a landslide into the Atlantic which in turn will create a tsunami that will cover Florida and devestate up to 20 miles inland on the east coast of America.

Or, not.

Thank you! eBay is such a good idea, didn't even think about it! Thanks for the tip! Most of the antiques we lost, I'm ok with it, 4 items though...don't know that I'll ever be able to replace those. I saw a doctor yesterday about the earthquake anxiety and she said it takes about 6-8 weeks to get back to normal, there is a light at the end of the tunnel!

Paranoia, anxiety and fear are what's giving me a bad feeling, mixed in with all these small quakes. California does get a lot of small quakes, the last month seems more than usual. Maybe because I'm checking so many times per day since the Napa quake, before that I checked earthquake apps once a day. It's a good thing to be aware of them.

The other reason for my bad feeling is in May there was an article about cluster quakes. Per the USGS California is more likely to see clusters of these "smaller" quakes rather than The Big One like the Great 1906 San Francisco Earthquake:

A flurry of mid-sized quakes is more likely to strike the Bay Area rather than a giant 1906-esque rupture, said David Schwartz, a paleoseismologist at the USGS's Menlo Park office and the lead author of the study, which appeared in June's Bulletin of the Seismological Society of America.
The study marks the first comprehensive history of the Bay Area's seismicity dating to 1600.

Earthquake cluster likely to strike Bay Area, scientists say

I do understand what it means and I do accept others thoughts. I am starting to wonder about you though...

I did look it up. In fact, the first thing I saw said, "Technology put man at the top of the food chain".

The core of your position is that since man is the smartest he is at the top of the food chain. Man's ingenuity and creativity allowed him to invent, build, and employ tools, thus cementing his position at the top of the food chain.

If that is a fair assessment of your position, let me suggest this: In its purest simplest form a food chain is a diagram of what eats what. Plants are forever at the bottom of the food chain because technically they don't 'eat' anything. They use water and sunlight as catalysts to produce the nutrients they require. Thusly they are classified as producers. Herbivores do not produce plants, but they consume them. Thusly, they are classified as consumers and are above plants on the food chain. Omnivores eat both plants and herbivores placing them even higher on the food chain. That leaves only one group left, the carnivores. Carnivores eat other carnivores and herbivores. On this scale, the biggest badass carnivore is top of the list.

I agree that taking technology out of the equation isn't fair to man. Its the equivalent of putting a shark on dry land. Its out of its element. Denying man the right to use the tools he designed and created is preventing man from being man.

Our views diverge here. You insist that, "...we are and always have been the top of the food chain." I am not so sure about that. There was a time when homo-sapiens had to learn to create and use tools. At that time, even though our collective potential may have been great, our actual skills were limited. There must have been a time when we were no safer than any other creature who had yet to figure out the secret is to bang the rocks together.

Man has, for a very long time, sought to define his position as superior over beast. To that end we first stated that man was superior because we developed sophisticated communication. In subsequent years we discovered that many life forms communicate with each other and some in ways more sophisticated than our own. More elegant at the very least. So man, in his desire to remain top of the heap decided, it was the ability to make and use tools that set us apart from the animal kingdom. It wasn't all that long ago that we discovered that many species use tools every day. Gulls will drop mollusks onto rocks from high altitude to break them open. Otters will use stones to break open mollusks. Birds will use a blade of grass to fish for insects in tree branches. But man was quick to point out that these animals were not making tools, just using natural elements as they exist in nature. But primates took it a step further. Gorilla, urangutan, and chimpanzee all make tools by modifying elements from their surroundings and use them for the purpose of acquiring food. They have been filmed selecting a tree branch, trimming the smaller branches and leaves off, and shaping the end to work more efficiently at removing termites from a mound. That is making and using tools. But it doesn't stop there. It has been proven that these primates also teach each other these skills. So man decided it wasn't just the use of tools, it was the ability to reason, complex thought, that separated us from the animals. Then along came the border collie. There is a bc in Scotland with a vocabulary of well over a thousand words. This dog is so smart he learns new commands the first time he hears them. In a documentary about his amazing skills a couple hundred of his toys, all of which he knows the names of, were placed in a room. In a separate room sat the dogs owner and the film crew. The owner would call out a name for the dog. The dog would go into the other room and search for the associated object. If it wasn't visible, he would dig through piles and keep looking until he found it. He never missed. Then a new test was set up. Five toys were placed in the other room. Four the dog already knew, one was new. The owner called out the name of the new toy. The dog went into the other room and looked at his options. He deduced that since he knew the names of the other four it couldn't be one of those so it must be the only one left. He selected the toy he had never seen before. That is inference. Complex thought. Genius. I have seen five year olds who couldn't do that.

So it makes we wonder... have we always been at the top of the list? Will we always be? Or is it possible that some other creature whose natural abilities already exceed ours at some point becomes superior in intellect as well?

Douglas Adams said, “For instance, on the planet Earth, man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much—the wheel, New York, wars and so on—whilst all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time. But conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they were far more intelligent than man—for precisely the same reasons.”

I do respect your opinion and your right to have it. I do consider the thoughts of others. But I reserve the right to respectfully disagree when necessary.

Now we're getting into silliness aren't we? How does anyone know what dolphins think ? I give. This discussion is causing enough thread drift.
