Are you kidding? I had trouble coming up with the cash for the gas for my VW bus and to get through the gate. Not to mention the Frosty Malts.

Predicted or inspired?

The mad box is upon us and will make us made just like its creators. A vicious cycle or what caused what disguises the true nature of the beast.

TV, media, facebook and crap alike are a serious mental health issue these days. Turn them off.

Stephen King loved the 'Paranormal', Books like "The Shining" and "The Stand" were exceptional for their day.

He gave a lot of thought to some aspects, borrowing from other beliefs, like this scene from the film, The Shining..

I think what's happening here is something catastrophic happened and people from the future figured out how to time travel and are using it to communicate messages to the past in order to prevent the catastrophe.

I don't believe in coincidence. These "predictions" are purposeful.

I think it would be an effective way to prosper above and beyond the common man. I'd be looking at people like the Rockefellers and the Rothschilds, and organizations like the alphabets, who would be manipulating regimes.

It's an interesting if frustrating exercise. Our reality is very complex. I doubt we'll figure it out in our lifetimes.

More "coincidences":

Might want to look up Greg Bear's "Blood Music" and consider the possibility that, at least for our current circumstances, the perception of the prevalence and/or frequency of so-called "paranormal" events may be tied to the heightened level of observation endured by our reality.

An alternate way of interpreting the old saying "God works in mysterious ways " would be to acknowledge that what we recognize as reality works best, and most "seamlessly" when it is allowed to work unobserved.

The story of "The Sorcerer's Apprentice" springs to mind.

"It " was not specifically 27 years, it was 25 to 30 years.
And Haven isn't written by King it's based ( very loosely)on the Colorado kid written by King. That is about a murder that took place twenty five years in the past but is not about repeat behavior or repeating or recurring themes.
Just as an aside...
The Colorado Kid was a crime novel not a horror novel.
There were no "troubles" in that book.

No he's just a man gifted with a dark and wonderful imagination.
Oh and if we're looking for recurring themes in King stories ...he's obviously afraid of spiders.
I can't remember which ones off the top of my head but they're mentioned in a few. "It" being one of them.
The Dark Tower had repeating spiders. I think needful things did too..
I'm a fan and I picked up on the spider thing a long time ago.

Good book. A collaboration with Peter Straub writer of Ghost Story another thriller.
It related very closely to Roland and the dark tower.

I loved going to the drive in. But they kind of disappeared before I could go with anyone but my parents and a backseat full of kids who played through the whole movie. No drive in make out sessions for me.

Dude are you actually serious??
This is a perfectly fine question that delves into theories that I know I haven't thought much about of, as of yet.

Seriously, are you on the wrong website?????????????????????????????????????????????


I am on the correct website. I just clearly need to drink more...


Might help flush out that bee that has clearly crawled up your butt.

I am one of ATS's most notorious thread killers and that is why I rarely post in a thread.
