I've noticed several glitches on ATS. Many people apparently can't see my posts. This is either from the ignore button or I'm being filtered out from being seen by nearly everyone.......Can you see me now?

When I was in the hospital I saw a fly stationary in mid air. I went to take it into the washroom an it disappeared in one area of the room, but then saw it again when I moved from that spot. I then tossed it into the toilet and put toilet paper over it and then flushed it.

I don't suppose it was a crack fly?

Ok your visible now, I read your post


In hospital you say, was there any medication involved ?

Actually the fly thing reminded me that the other night there was a spider in my bedroom up on the architrave and since I don't like sleeping with spiders, as they tend to have a habit of walking across my face when I am asleep which tends to result in a rather rapid awakening, I went and fetched a glass and piece of card to capture it and rehome it outside.

Having stood on the edge of the bed to coax it into the glass with the card it just dissapeared, now the glass was directly beneath it and yet it was not in there.

Fair enough I thought than it must of somehow avoided the glass and dropped to the floor so I proceede to move the wardrobe the bed the chair and anything else I could move but to no avail it was nowhere to be seen.

What happened to that spider ?

Is our brain the matrix, and if so are we networked into everyone elses brain ?


To me, there is no question whatsoever that each living organism is indeed wired to everything else, on the consciousness level.
I think the "holographic" theories of the universe, their unavoidable flaws notwithstanding, may be the closest approximation to what the universe "really" is.

I would hate to apply the name of "matrix", however (or any name at all) because, the human mind being what it is, any such image (not to mention specific film fiction associations!) entails the danger of petrifying any particular view of the universe into a "dogma" of sorts, hence closing the mind for other possibilities. Which is important because - in my opinion - one's own mind (= in its totality, not just the rational part) is, ideally, the appropriate instrument to perceive the essence of "reality".

Then do you think Time could be male


I wish!


Because if it were, it would be all too easy to coax him and persuade him to give up its secrets... :-)

Nah, Time is a lady - and a mean one at that!

I can only guess in the natural world that spiders use air or some other static type of energy movement from you and it probably was able to drop before the glass was under it. I hate it when I wake up and there's some spider dropping down from the ceiling above my face. They probably feed off of our own bugs and sweat anyway?

The hospital thing was bizarre. I had been homeless and finally got some sleep in the hospital after I admitted myself. I had taser prongs burned off in my gut and a hole in the right side of my head when they admitted me and even took pictures. I recalled a nurse coming in and pulling out the taser prongs and putting them in a glass dish and also doing something with my head wound as well. A short while later another nurse came in and the wounds were both healed or gone but the dish and some type of pen like instrument was still there. She was even more confused than I was and asked: "what nurse?"

The whole ordeal was a mind glitch game of some sort and have since been labeled as delusional anyway. I wonder how that nurse is doing though?

The crack fly was a bad joke. People who are crack addicts apparently will halucinate that they can see them. It's bizarre and sad and shouldn't really be considered as funny. That part of the Matrix movie and the cat glitch does make me wonder if we are in some type of matrix. Alien abductors supposedly know how to mimic these affects on us in some way.

I suppose that some alien UFOs will be able to make you think what you're seeing and hearing are just planes also?

This happened to me recently.

I was in a Wal-Mart parking lot at the front of the store. I was turning down one of the aisles of parking spaces to travel down to the end of the lot to leave. As I got to the end of the aisle a red car was turning in the opposite lane to enter the lot. They would have passed me going the opposite way. I'm not sure where I looked but I looked away for less than a second and when my attention was back on the road ahead, the car (90's ford taurus) was no longer in the aisle or anywhere in my line of vision. There is no way the car could have left my sight as I only looked away for less than one second.

But that's not all. No sooner than I realized this car had mysteriously disappeared, two identical sport motorcycles with two identical riders came in the lot where the car had been. They were going the same speed on the same line one after the other. They then drove down the aisle and passed me in the oncoming lane. This all occured in a period of about four seconds. I immediately felt something strange had happened, sort of like deja vu. My first thought was "a glitch in the matrix"

So could you say reality is rational and irrational like a reflection of our own minds ?

To identical vehicles again like my experience today.

And if we had not seen that film would we just use the term deja vue because it was not really deja vue when something happens in such a short time frame.

Did the film makes us look for these events or were they happening and we did not have a practical frame of reference before ?

(I am in terrible thinking/wording shape today, so I wonder if I shouldn't perhaps just leave this for another day. But I have no guarantees that my "form" will return any time soon, so...)

What I wanted to say was really just that I suspect one's Mind is enough to access the "mysteries" of the Universe. (Ideally, of course.)

But since you mention it... yes, I think it could be argued that the universe as each one of us observes it may be, at least partly, shaped by the perception and beliefs of the one who is observing it.

For example - and it's just that, a theoretical example - it is conceivable that in a world inhabited by someone who believes in, say, UFOs (as coming from different plants or dimensions, that is) such UFO really do "objectively" exist - while in the world inhabited by someone who does not believe in their existence, such UFO "objectively" do not exist.

So... both are right. It's the apparent "consensus" of what the World looks like and IS what's misleading everyone...


As I said, it's just an example, and I wouldn't really be writing this if I had any guarantee that tomorrow my eloquence will be any better. :-)

Your doing just fine vanitas


I think I could precis this for you, let me know if I am wrong.

Our personal worlds are shaped by our preconceptions.

Well, yes - but radically so.
To the point where one can really speak of "objective" realities.
(The quotation marks may seem an oxymoron in this case, but the following plural explains it :-)) In my earlier example, the UFO objectively exist in the world of the one who believes in them; and objectively do NOT exist in the world of the one who does not believe in them.

What's bugging me is, IF that is so... when does it begin, this process of "objective individualisation" of the World?

And where does it feed from?

I think people are often all too quick in condemning the supposed perceptual and conceptual "indoctrination" - by the parents, the society and what-not... But the reality - as I observe it - is that even the smallest of babies anywhere in the world react in the same way to certain basic realities (like a hand approaching them, the sun shining in their eyes etc.)

And so, IF the world is what we choose (in a way) to see... when and how does this process take place?

(Nah - it's no use. I am really terrible today.
And YOU are just being all too kind...
)

I believe we are shaped not only by our genetic connections but also by the experiences we have, the people we meet and the environment we grow up and live in.

But it's ok we can talk another day

I guess for some cops, the use of a taser when they find you sleeping on private property is just another form of a wake-up call? No snooze button for me that night. (Uh, we thought he was dead and needed a jump start.)

Darn nasty.

So did the tazar prongs break off in you gut or did they just create holes ?

Well, of course we are - but to what degree?
And the usual sources of influence surely wouldn't account for perceptual differences?

As I said, babies, for example, react pretty much the same all over the world, regardless of the culture. How and when are then people shaped into "seeing" the world one way and not the other - which is the usual argument of quantum-freaks? (I am not being rude, it's a term of endearment - in fact, I am one myself. :-))


P.S. It's already "another day" here, and my eloquence hasn't improved...

As soon as the accelerator is fired up next month, I believe you will have the answer to your question but only and I repeat only if you allow yourself to comprehend what you do not allow on a daily basis. Do not second guess yourselves. In the instant you allow that thought of falsehood you have lost the moment of truth.

Could you not ask yourself if there was any one pivotal point were your perspective changed or do you think it may have slid past unnoticed ?

Ah..I think I know what you are talking about.

The Hadron Accelerator

en.wikipedia.org...

So do you mean the scientific results will answer the question or do you think there is going to be some cataclysmic event that will change our world forever ?
