Please explain this reasoning.
Makes conversation a little akward if you mention Nelson Mandella walking out of prison and everyone else says, "He is dead, ya know?

Keep in mind that not every flitter or flutter of thought in your head will instantly manifest anything. The more concentrated and sustaned the mode of thinking the more it will be manifest. To illustrate: sadness is but an absense of happiness so to rid yourself of the negative "polarize" yourself to the opposite condition by focusing on the other extreme. It's analogous to cold not being a thing but rather an absense of heat so to get rid of cold add heat.
One can just as easily get what the don't want by concentrating on what they don't want (ie. "I don't want to be sick"). Concentrate on what you do want (ie. "I want to be healthy"). Why? Because the image of "sick" is what's in the mind if using the negative.
Perhaps it all sounds utterly ludicrous at first but there is everything to gain by it and at the minimum your mood will be improved. It can take some practice to make a habit out of it especially if you've been living on one "pole" for awhile - there is mental intertia so to speak.
I hope that what I said is in some small way helpful in relieving the mental distress some have reported. To work, it must be DONE and not simply considered.
If this were a normal circumstance than I would say you are absolutely correct. In the current situation it may not hold true because science does not know how strong gravity fields interact with consciousness. Certain scientific principles do not seem to be holding true anymore so philosophical ideas are more apt to not hold true either.
The last time this part of our spiral galaxy transited through the galactic plane was approximately 11,000 to 12,000 years ago. No one alive then is alive now to let us know how consciousness interacts with this event.
There may be no interaction at all but I and others (offline people I am working with on this problem) have noticed that when we think of something, even just a transient thought, some thing happens to cause what we thought to manifest. Now I do not mean that if I think of a hamburger one magically appears on the table; I'm referring to syncronicities of information exchange, meetings with people, suddenly having access to tangible items that one needs to complete a task.
Just be careful what thoughts enter into conscious awareness. Remember this is a shared reality and at the quantum level everything is interconnected and it theoretically could/will effect us all in this world-line and others.

And what would the great thing be?
i myself am only getting more confused by day.
Today it happend again, watching a concert of a dutch dead singer on DVD and noticing how the voice-over in the stadium spoke completely different words than before!! ON A DVD!!!
So that great thing you think we are being prepared for might not be as great, i have a very bad feeling about this.

Why am I me and not someone else. I've wondered that since I was 5 years old.

I had a conversation once with someone who said that when we go out of sight to one another we could go into a different reality. The world he was in was different to the one I was in. With whats happening now he could have been right and we are all moving into one timeline.

I have this urge to watch my copy of "The Elegant Universe" tonight. It's parallel universes and string theory explained. I am feeling the need to brush up on all this because of this thread. Here is the description of the DVD from Amazon:
"One of the most ambitious and exciting scientific theories over posed one that may be the long-south Theory of everything gets a masterful and lavishly animated explanation that will excite scientists and non-scientists alike.
Beginning with simple and clear explanations of major concepts of physics, including gravity electromagnetism and relativity, the Elegant Universe illuminates one of the most revolutionary theories in physics today, known as string theory or superstring theory, this startling idea proposes that the fundamental ingredients of nature are inconceivably tiny strands of energy whose different modes of vibration underlie everything that happens in the universe. The theory attempts to unite the laws of the large general relativity and the laws of the small quantum mechanics breaking a conceptual logjam that has frustrated scientists for nearly a century.
If string theory proves correct, the universe we see obscures a reality that is for richer and more complex than anyone ever imagined a universe with numerous hidden dimensions; a universe in which the fabric of space can rip and tear; a universe that may be but one of many parallel universes."
Parallel time lines, parallel lives, parallel worlds... and parallel universes.

Okay, bear with me as I am not the first with an ´is he dead´reply...
Does anyone else remember media magnate RUPERT MURDOCH dying years ago? As I recall he went missing under mysterious circumstances while on a sailing trip. His assumed death was covered massively by the national and international media for days - close to Diana-level coverage.
Now it seems he is alive and well....
Is he dead?
PLEASE let me know I´m not going crazy!?

Picking up other people's thoughts as if they were somehow transplanted into my head - or even hearing them - has happened to me, too, on many occasions. (Although I would by no means characterise it as an common occurrence in my life.)
But the fact that you are experiencing it NOW might be significant.
And I for one have no idea of what could be causing it...
