I kno, I still hear "We are Wal-Mart" in my head every now and then.


Stop it. I 'm feeling a strange pull, I think I'll go to Wal Mart, just to check it out.

Honey I can only go by what you type.

"I never use the word sheep-like"


we are in sleep-like states



"Nor do I feel the external data is useless"


trivial external data



She didn't say, "sheep-like", she said "sleep-like", as in 'sleep-walking' thru life...


And my guess is that the difference between saying "trivial external data", and "external data [not being] useless"...

...is in the sense that although the "data" which distracts us from 'ourselves' is "trivial" -

- it isn't necessarily "useless", because even 'trivia' can serve a purpose as long as we are 'awake' enough to utilize the information represented in it...

Dear god, I hope this actually wasn't Wal-Mart tactics infiltrating my mind... there's no escape!


You'll be alright. If you ever do go back though, bring a tin foil hat.

You know,


Wal-Mart is the place of pool noodles and free major epiphanies.

that could make one heck of a marketing campaign. Call your agent !! I get 10 percent.

Wal-Mart has too vacant a sense of humor to utilize something like that. They took down Walmart.horse, afterall. What a bunch of Scrooges!

That wouldn't be an uncommon sight in Wal-Mart.

Lol well, like someone else said earlier, I think this sort of thing can happen anywhere and be triggered by anything. Somehow the depressing atmosphere of Wal-Mart jolted me into another state of thinking. I think the fact that I've felt very depressed and anxious lately has contributed. Like the frivolity of consumerist society reached some sort of overload in me.


It can happen anywhere any time, but just as you shouldn't trust all you feel when in a moment of depression perhaps look moderately upon your experience triggered in an anxious moment. There is some beauty to what you said, but there is also feelings and thoughts I would say people have intensified in reaction to a state of mind.

Best of luck with the job hunting

Thank you. Lately I feel like I've been somewhat of a rollercoaster. I sure hope I get something soon and life smooths out a bit! I love experiences like this but I don't think I could do them all the time.

You realize we're inevitably headed towards WalMart surgery centers, right?



At least we can hope they don't have a drive-up window for that service

That realization that everyone is stuck Matrix like, you won't get many of those. They are awakenings, very good for the soul. Remember them, enjoy them.

From now on thats how you will see people doing the things that no longer give you the same joy. You've been shown whats behind the veil.

Although its harder that way sometimes, mostly you'll be glad to see the truth.

We could put you back in the Matrix… if you could go back, would you want to?

The only thing I ever experience at Walmart is a panic attack. I avoid that place like the plague. But it occurs to me that it's the perfect place for an epiphany such as yours; where better than right smack in the middle of the Evil Empire itself, with its rollback prices and impulse aisles...the mother of all materialism, the place where anyone can go get trampled on Black Friday and verbally abused by the pharmacists all year round...I would imagine that made it even more profound than say, a quiet book store or something.

All joking aside, I'm happy for you and wish you all the best of luck in finding employment. It is always so awesome to find these positive, uplifting posts nestled like little hidden jewels amongst the mayhem that has become our world. Bright Blessings to you and Blessed Be.

Perhaps you were waking up. Maybe the pressure on your head and the following euphoria was the result of some kind of shot. They juiced you up. Just brains in jars.

With such potent visual stimuli many I know have come to an epiphany visiting Walmart.





However I think your Spiritual enlightenment is a rather rare occurrence.

What a strange place to have an awakening of any kind: Walmart! When I go there all I ever experience is stuff like this:

You created an equal epiphany in myself with those pics ... one that wasn't quite so rosy as to the quality of the eternal spirits of light and their encasing shells... shells dribbling poop, sweat, disease and stupid.

Back to years of self searching to overcome my new thoughts of 'deservable genocide.'

Sorry, there is a yin and yang in everything.

Just trying to bring a little balance.

I see Skid Mark did the same

I do not think it matters where you were when this happened, the important aspect is what I would focus on. You could have been sitting on the potty and had the same epiphany, more than likely it occurred while you were in a trance state during your REM and it took time for you to see it in this reality.

The good news is, that is awesome to understand and it certainly makes the reality you are in more bearable, does it not?

Good for you!


I had to stop reading here and reply. You should take it as a challenge to have exactly this experience everywhere you go. Garage, shower, in line at Wendy's... I bet if you learn to make that mental tweak. You will see even deeper complex connections between every single experience you have, and every place you visit. Slight changes in the data can be huge changes in experience.

This sounds like an intense experience!

I actually feel a little deprived after watching that video. We have a TON of Indians at our local walmart and it smells like curry. Nobody looks all too weird, it's just 70% or so Indians walking around an otherwise white neighborhood. I don't know how that works out. Wasn't so a few years ago, then one day I look around and notice they're everywhere. Now it's the same every time I go in. I'd trade out the Indians for some of these freaks.
