Alot of these observances sound like glitches in "the Matrix," to use a rather worn out metaphor (and one which, since based on a movie, tends to
eliminate its own credibility...though I still think it is appropriate.) I've often felt like I'm living in a Philip K. Dick novel myself (yes, I
know he didn't write the Matrix.) I've also been thinking alot lately about the fact that we are moving into the "dog days" of summer,
historically associated with the dog star Sirius which Robert Anton Wilson and other have believed to have sent them telepathic
and/or synchronicities in the past (similar to the
which Phil Dick wrote about in some of his work.)
Gordo from the synchro-mystic websites Etemenanki/SuperTorchRitual has pointed heavily towards July 11-12 as being significant (moreso than I can
summarize here.) On a closer note, a recent ATS thread predicts a "worse than 911" disaster for Southern California...tomorrow! (maybe that will get
me out of work!)
I've personally felt "off" for awhile, physically and mentally. Most of it I have blamed on anxiety over finances and an unhealthy lifestyle - not
enough exercise, too much smoking and drinking, poor eating habits, etc. - but I feel that there is more to it.
Aside from all that's going on in the world (earthquakes, floods, LHC, Iran, etc.) I've noticed some oddities in my personal life.
A coworker's was out most of last week because her 29 y/o boyfriend was experiencing heart problems of a sort unusual for his age. His symptoms were
similar to those of an anxiety attack and he was placed in the hospital.
We had to put my dog down on Sunday. This was not unexpected...she was old and in failing health...but we had all expected a few more months with her.
My sister (whose religion does not believe in dream prophecies) had two dreams of the dog's death in the past week. My dad, a rather stoic man when
it comes to pets, was more upset by the death than I had expected; Mom tells me he was in a very 'strange' mood yesterday, grumpy and depressed and
even tearing up ... understandable but still seems uncharacteristic, as if he had become more 'sensitive.' (Oddly enough, as Mom was taking the dog
to the emergency vet, my uncle called to tell us that his first grandson had just been born.)
The sensitivity issue is one I can relate to, as I've felt more aware of my body and mind lately...which has actually led to some anxiety for reasons
mentioned above. I've also felt a certain sort of 'disconnect' in my mind...like I'm "high" when I am most definitely not, or like I'm just
waking up even though its ten am and I've had my morning pot of coffee.
My mom told me today that my aunt called hysterically worried about my uncle. She said he was getting lost, confused, had glassy eyes, was exhibiting
all kinds of odd symptoms she thought might be dementia. Now I just spent a week with him not two months ago and he was as sharp and on the ball as
ever. He is maybe in his late 60s, only slightly overweight, and has generally been healthy, no smoking or drinking or drugs. I cannot believe he
would become 'demented' so quickly without showing earlier signs.
Three of the eight people in my department were out sick today. Two of them complained of food poisioning, and another who did come in claimed to have
had the same poisoning sickness over the weekend (they blame it on the donuts someone brought in Thurs morning...for once I'm glad I stopped at BK on
my way to work!)
Now I know that "life happens" and its not always pleasant and none of these things are too 'out there' on their own...but it seems like so many
things happening at once, I do feel that "something" is approaching a sort of critical mass.
Would love to hear more oddities, sychronicities, "glitches", etc...
