Very interesting thread.
In response to the celebrity point:
As much as I'd love to believe in tampering with the time-line, I'd have to say this is not the case.
Many psychologists would be able to explain this. If there's anyone with any knowledge on this, it would be greatly appreciated. I'd have to go with
something related to deja vu or with the way the brain holds memories. Which brings me onto my remembering something about this in class when studying
Psychology, (I dropped out before anyone asks).
I myself have often thought of someone as dead only to realise some time later they are alive and kickin and not only with celebrities may I add.
Ok, taken that it has been put forward by members that many people think the same thing of the same celebrities doesn't mean anything too outlandish
without even considering applying a psychological explanation.
Why is it everytime I leave the house I always think I forget something?
Why is it anytime I put something down, it's never in the place I thought I'd left it?
Ever get the feeling you've been somewhere before but you know you haven't?
Ever been singing a song to yourself then it's come on the radio? Not current up-to-date music either.
Ever thought of someone you've not spoken to in ages and next thing, they call?
I also remember in that Psychology class, very good answers to these types of questions. (perhaps not the last two)
Alas my memory isn't what it used to be and how ironic I speak about memory and can't remember what it is I was trying to remember.
"Your love of the halfings' leaf has clearly slowed your mind."
The matter of possibly millions of people disappearing every year is quite astonishing.
Some may disappear and not want to be found.
Many, unfortunately, will want to be found and aren't. So we can account for murderers, serial killers etc etc, although to be fair we would only be
Then there are the darker sides. Organisations, and I'm choosing my words carefully, who may need people for whatever reasons - medical experiments
or the likes, organs/human parts, slavery, dark porn industries, human conditioning.
Now the human conditioning is one thought that just popped into mind there as I wrote this. Cults may be able to explain a fair amount of
dissappearances I suppose. Satanic or Occultist human sacrifices need a steady supply of humans. How about black-op governmental organisations and
There's also the jump through space and time of which again I would love to believe or even onto a higher existence. I just can't though. What would
trigger this? Could perhaps experiments happening on sites like CERN be the cause? Or an increase in our use of technologies?
I ask only for you people to answer these questions for me. I know nothing about Quantum Physics apart from what LaForge and Data used to tell Picard.
It made sense at the time
As for the higher existence transgression would 2 people reach that at the same time? I refer to the older couple who vanished from their car. Did
their clothes disappear with them and if so, why didn't the car? There's also the case of the Mary Celeste. If none of you have heard then google
I believe that many of the people who do vanish will not go counted in that tally ie homeless. Indigenous peoples and displaced peoples.
Just for the record I do believe in a higher spiritual being whether it be described as a new world or a new dimension or multiverse. I know I
probably won't get the answers I seek in my lifetime but hey, I'll get all the answers when I get there.
