Foolishness has a logarithmic relationship to the number of people who espouse it.


Unfortunately the purpose has been lost. There used to be a time when the most ignorant humans could not pass on their DNA.
The mechanism still draws them together, we just don't see the culling that used to ensue.

I have enough peace of mind telling my experience without having to investigate every contingency of proof to convince total strangers on the web.

Any explanation why a number of people seem compelled to do so? That's what intrigues me.



Some people can't admit they might be wrong?

I find some are just too prideful to admit that they aren't the center of creation.

I am very interested in the topic, and am entertained with my own experiences with it. I'm not going to hit anybody over the head and pretend to have all the answers.

I feel it's one of those things there just isn't any solid proof for. It can only be a feeling, an intuition--you can't really prove either of these--so just leave it at that.

But I do have confidence in my intuition.

I have a hypothesis that it has something to do with feeling a lack of control over one's life. Seems to relate to your OP in that regard.

If its important get an x ray. It will still show the repaired break.

It wasn't an issue with bone. There was no break. It was an issue with muscle and ligaments.

A psychological twist, interesting!

It does seem to be like an extreme form of deja vu. But it doesn't seem limited at the individual level. If it was just one person making the claim, it would be dismissed. If it's multiple people sharing the claim, then it's easier to jump on the bandwagon.

Your hypothesis is control and mine is that they want to feel connected with something greater.

A combination of both maybe.

It doesn't take much to fool a human, and with 6+ billion of them, it doesn't take much to find a group of fooled ones.

Strength in numbers does not apply here.


I think it goes a little beyond 'fooling' anybody. Even when people know they're correct, they will fain ignorance to fall in line with the group. There are very strong social cues in place here as well.

Indeed. And there is, thanks to this medium, a global bandwagon. Though the ME seems to have originated more regionally. That's that "viral" effect, I suppose.

a reply to: NarcolepticBuddha I dont know. Mom did x rays and she is gone now. I cant ask. I would yjink you may see tissue abnormalities, but I may be wrong.
The doctor is the one who came to me and asked me about the wire in my foot, and no one ever put it there. Maybe I should start a thread? Im sure I could go and get copies of x rays. Its still in there. The doctor was concerned and didnt want to remove it. I work in a steel mill, so I wrote it off as something I dont remember


Of course It may have been an alien or an implant

The Ego can be disruptive. I don't want to admit I'm wrong or fallible and this group of people allow me the luxury of not having to.

And I will disprove your hypothesis right now. It's not akin to a lack of control. It's due to getting older and drinking excessive quantities of alcohol.

I deal with my lack of control in other ways


Please don't start the psychobabble like old Druscilla

I've considered that possibility. But, while it is true that alcohol does kill brain cells, it only kills the weak ones.

So all the ATS pundits can agree on the fallibility and fluidity of memory...

So where does confidence in being correct come from? Especially when it comes to these un-measurable events?

Yeah, definitely a lot of contempt being bred. Your post, here, seems to exemplify contempt. However you are honest enough to admit later that you don't like to admit you're wrong, and you are in a group of people that doesn't demand that of you. Who, exactly, in your estimation, are the "ignorant humans?"

LOL.

I remember a good thread on here a while ago about the trends and hype regarding theories like this. I wish I could remember the name. Give it a year or and everyone will forget about this theory and jump onto the next bandwagon.
Flying cities, trumpets of the end times (sky farts), slenderman... The list goes on, 2012 was a good one too. I'm hard-pressed to find people admit to believing in the 2012 apocolypse/awakening.

It's dangerous really, not everyone is so fickle or trolling. Some people genuinely believe and lives are ruined.

I have no idea. I know my memory is a flukey thing. That's why I don't even put much stock in it when it comes to things that matter (much less song lyrics). That's why people figured out that writing things down is a good idea. That's one reason I have a computer on my desk.
