If you're actually blackmailing them...I don't know. If the person is truly evil then they probably deserve it.
I believe you though, at this point I'll almost believe anyone someone tells me just because of everything I've experienced in the past year.
I personally believe human conciousness is "expanding" at the same rate that technology is. Think about how today is different than 100 years
There were no televisions, internet, etc 100 years ago. Think about how our culture of language and emotions have evolved with instant messenger. We
send a complete thought, and wait for a response, "lol" or something. We don't read emotions like our ancestors did. We read the words, "lol"
is something like a nod, while ROFL is a literal that made me smile and maybe laugh. The person that was originally sending the message feels more
emotion when the recieve replies with ROFL instead of lol.
Dunno what that really has to do with anything, just something I thought was not possible 100 years ago.
A couple examples of synchronicites that were beyond explainable for myself:
Two days ago, I was over at my buddy's place and Cash Cab came on the television, and they show the map of NYC, with the blocks and it looks like a
giant grid. I thought to myself, "this is how reality is, it's a giant grid, we live in a universe which is just a giant grid." I get home and
look at my IMs and there's one from my friend who says: "WE'RE ALL LIVING IN A GIANT GRID. IT'S COMPLETELY CONTROLLING US." Blah blah, he's a
big conspiracy nut, I thought it was hilarious though. These kinds of synchronicities don't even surprise me anymore.
The most unexplainable one for me was this though:
I was sitting at my computer, sort of mumbling to myself and I got this strange sensation on the very top of my head where your hair starts to come
out, it felt like a rush of electricity from my cheeks up to that point and I said softly "wowwwwwww", the very same time my roommate yells out
"WOWWWWWW, COME HERE"
To me, it felt like I sensed his emotion the same time he experienced it. He was watching something on TV btw. What made me unconciously say
"wowwww" was that I had never experienced any sort of feeling like that before. I have experienced the need to scratch the very top of your head,
but I never felt the tingling completely up my entire face and across my cranium, all coming together at that one point. It was quite amazing
