Agreed, were about to say the same thing but you beat me to it.
I usually don't see 11:11, mostly 2's and 3's for me. These days I don't feel much of anything, I make a quick mental note and then I go on with my
day. 3333 again? Huh, ok.
Numbers of course is just a subset of synchronicities, others can seem to imply things, seemingly answer questions or otherwise just mirror thoughts,
I don't get too excited about these either. But if I for example am thinking about some goal that I'd like to reach, and at the same time I happen to
see something correlating with that goal on the computer while someone on the TV says "it will work out for the best in due time", I would of course
hope that it is true, that it really is a message, but I will most often remain skeptical yet casually optimistic at the same time. Because, the thing
is, and this goes for occultism in general, if you're not highly advanced you most often do not know what you're dealing with and deception is
They're experiencing their inner state mirroring their outer state, mind over matter, they're experiencing the empty verse: As above, so below, as
within so without. Sure the first times most everybody will remain a skeptic, but then it keeps happening in greater frequency and it keeps chipping
away at that skepticism. Of course, if you've already experienced blatant paranormal phenomena it might not be that impressive at all and the
skepticism probably won't be that rigid in the first place.
But the question is: if these billions of people that don't feel that this is a "thing" are experiencing it frequently enough or even at all? I posit
that they're not since they don't seem to, they don't talk about it, they don't talk about seeing 333 7 times every other day. Sure everybody sees
11:11 now and then, but how often?
Yeah, I'd think that is valid, but I don't think it accounts for the change in perception, or rather experience, of going from almost never seeing
such things to seeing such things daily, nightly and ever so rightly.
Privilege is just a word, some would call it a curse. I'd call it a double-edged sword.
Science deals with the physical world and it is a very good system, the best we have, though I'd be lying if I said I didn't think it could undergo
Mysticism or spirituality doesn't deal exclusively with the physical world, its aims are altogether different, though many have used the scientific
method in exploring these mysteries, you probably already know that alchemists were proto-scientists, from Francis Bacon to Newton, mystics were
involved in early science, but I digress.
Because the nature of these inquiries and what they seek to explore often transcends the physical and the instruments of science itself being physical
the fruits of these labors haven't had the same impact that science has. Unless one counts spiritual cultivation in isolated individuals as progress,
as you said esoteric traditions have always been maligned by society in favour of exoteric religion which prefers faith and belief over practicality
and exploration, so perhaps it is no wonder that its effects on the world pales in comparison to science which is for the most part accepted and
welcomed by the world.
I wouldn't exactly say that science is wrong, rather that some assumptions of science may be wrong and that other explanations or foundations may fit
the same mold and criteria that the evidence suggests.
Meditation for one has been proven to alter the brain, I find that pretty impressive and I'd find these practices worthwhile if that was all there
was. The rabbit hole is deep, and ever deeper it gets. No need to talk about other things, people don't believe unless they see and scoffing is the
You think I talk about these things in my real life? Silence is golden, talk is cheap, pushing just embolden.
As for my experience or experiences that would defy modern science, no need to mention it, you still wouldn't see it or experience it. Suffice to say
that I've experienced many things that are supposed to be impossible, some of them could have other plausible explanations, some of them not. However,
this does not mean that I know everything about what I experienced, and it does not mean that I know exactly how it is wrong since I'm not a
scientist. All I know is, things that are supposed to be impossible do in fact happen, to a lot of people even.
As I always say, there's no need to engage this subject without actually engaging it, the only way is to find out for oneself.
No one can prove any of this for you and that's that.
