Has the machine swallowed you, lamplighters? Are you still around?
I hope you're OK.
There seems to be no way of telling so far whether your machine is (or was - set up in the past and left without being monitored) being controlled by
humans, or there is supernatural activity.
Both technological and paranormal explanations here can happen, and are well documented. Or at least, in the case of remote computer control or
hacking, it is known about privately by some experts. The real abilities of the latest hackers are rarelt if ever admitted by computer professionals
or authorities in order not to scare the populous. Certainly nowadays, you shouldn't believe that either your average well trained and up-to-date
computer repairer OR even many very experienced, specialist machine, IT & network communications consultants will have much of a clue about the latest
hacking / remote manipulation possibilities. They simply won't.
Hacking possibilities usually remain secret, unknown in how they work to the big experts before they happen (possibly even afterward also), and,
mentioned in this thread before, increasingly baffle the biggest corporations. These companies not only work in conjunction with the biggest network
security companies, but also often have sizable departments of their own full time network & data security specialists.
There is much a local computer shop will never pick up, and hacking is evolving all the time, every single week. Adapting, increasing in complexity,
using new, old and combined entrance routes etc etc. You must have read reports that huge numbers of people were thought to have their pc cams used to
take photos and videos of themselves, some even when they believed their machines were off. BBC, UK TV just last week gave an interview with Ed
Snowden in Russia who made clear British, American etc authorities can and do turn on people's smartphone when in their pockets and use the phone
microphone to listen & record your conversation. The computer phone can seem not to have been turned on, but has been "possessed" by officials. If
they can use the microphone, they (and hackers who have figures out similar "opportunities") can use any other element, such as playing a short audio
file, or streaming audio to it. A smartphone is just a small sized, often quite large capacity, personal computer with a cellphone element. So this
kind of thing, thankfully leaked by Snowden, can happen to any networked machine, desktop PC included of course.
There are many reports that governments have added their own hardware to consumer network electronics. This can include secret mobile networking
hardware, so that machines may be able to be accessed without owners even thinking there is any network connection made - no WiFi, no network cable,
no mobile operator connection. I know for a fact that this has happened, and I know for a fact that - this is important - computer repairers etc have
been legally threatened by the authorities that they must not touch the added hardware if found in a client's machine. Further, I know for a fact that
repairers have been directed that repairers have been ordered to deny to clients any knowledge of the extra hardware by use of the most serious laws.
(Official Secrets etc. where you are "tried" in court without being allowed to have your side heard and where the judge can be directed in advance to
make a particular decision because the jurisdiction is beyond the judiciary, by law of statute.)
The other possibility is so-called "black ops". You could be a "test" subject for secret government operations (origin anywhere, from USA to China to
some small country doing its own network infiltration testings), rather than a test subject or victim of hackers.
You don't have an unfortunate past with where you were "involved" by the CIA or more secret government operations, do you - Project Monarch, MK
Alternatively (after all that - just to put you in the picture that there's no way to tell from the info supplied so far), this could easily just be
what people call the supernatural. There are countless documented incidents of so-called ghost and poltergeist activity, things which can't be
explained by the "norms" of society. (Many are reported to have involved machines.)
As a younger person I learned it's probably much more accurate, and helpful to yourself, to disbelieve the "norms" of modern society rather than
possibilities of what people call supernatural. Then I dropped the probably - inevitable. I've had so many experiences, while with rather severe
neurological memory problems now, I can barely remember the tiniest fraction of them.
One thing, ghosts, poltergeist activity need not necessarily have to involve spirits of the dead. I used to see people who weren't even born then as
yet. Later it can be very confusing indeed. Basically I slowly learned that the only helpful position is that there's probably no explanation to be
found at least, and maybe no explanation finally anyway even if you were to know what's going on, for anything. It just happens - just experiences.
Who knows what it is or if it's the stupidest thing in the world to waste your time wondering whether there even is a "why" behind it or not? It just
is - in subjective experience terms.
A year or so before Whitney Houston died, I had such a strange and so real seeming dream showing me the death - that is how WH was later then
reported to have died in the news nearly exactly (with a few exceptions in what happened). The dream went on to show me something very minor which
then later happened in my life, related to WH's death.
What did this mean and why? I've no idea - it seems pointless to dwell on those questions with no direction. I'd no idea it was a future vision, I
woke up wondering actually why I was dreaming about WH's past
death. Not being a follower then (or a fan since about 20 years before then), I
assumed after the dream she had died previously, but wasn't sure. I went to Google when WH had died and then learned that she was still alive and
singing and acting. I thought about it for a while, then just thought "how weird" and forgot it.
Long post, I started rambling as I do, sorry if too much.
I hope you're OK though. If you decide your experiences are more likely to be poltergeist kind of activity - for some this has become serious, and you
should get help from family, friends or professionals if it seems too threatening.
When this has happened to me in the past I made sure to quickly improve my diet a lot - fresh, healthy foods, and take good exercise out in the fresh
air, amongst lovely greenery in parks etc. It may help, but also it can become of the first things a psychologist will ask and advise you about. So if
it comes down to either someone you know (against your own opinion or with it) or yourself suggesting a psychologist, you know and can say you've
spent some time already on this area and will maintain it. I seem to remember it helped state of mind too. You could get away for a few days to
somewhere nice, also - hotel or B&B near some natural attraction or country walks etc.
