This has been a frequent topic of discussion among ATS members for a year or so, and it seems to be increasingly prevalent. Those who notice this tend to remark that either strangers seem glossy-eyed and lifeless, as if in a daze, or that people seem to have a subdued panic in their eyes--a stifled fear. I notice both, though more of the lifeless look. I like to aimlessly explore cities by foot, and passersby seem increasingly...unhealthy...as time goes on. There is often something off about their faces, whether it be a presence of fear or emptiness. This is not particular to any area of the world.

Now, the real test would be whether or not this same phenomenon can be noted among individuals who lack daily or frequent access to media. If it can, then something bizarre is indeed occurring. *This is, of course, assuming the subject of our collective foreboding will be global in its reach, rather than isolated to cities or developed regions.

As it stands, I'm not sure that this is anything other than human reaction to ceaseless bombardment by negative material (via TV, the web, newspapers, etc.).

Eery thread. For years I was a volunteer EMT saw plenty. One thing I will keep with me though is the look people got right before they died. Their injuries could be light, you could have been saying the nicest, most inocuous statements, but they knew something was up.
It's JUST like the looks we're getting now. From the reflection in my mirror to people on the street.

OK, I'm seriously ooked right now.


Are you being serious? You see it in your own face?

I think the most telling things are what is being experienced on a personal level. Never mind the MSM and such. I'll just focus on signs for the moment.

The smallest things like people suddendly and inexplicably ordering cheese-only pizzas, running the local store dry of premade ones, while the manager is confused, says something important (yes, it really happened). The premade pepperoni+cheese are the same price, so it wasn't the cost. I had to wait for my premade cheese pizza though.

Does anyone know one or more individuals that lived during the Great Depression that has had anything to say about this? Something comparative might help to shed light on things. What is different with people in contrast to other trying times? I haven't lived long enough myself to have extensive experience, not in this life anyway.

I also wonder about this. I suspect any pervasive feeling of "the end is nigh!" would be magnified today to a far greater degree than at any other time in known history, due to the inescapable fact that we are all connected. Your worry is my worry in a few clicks of a button; a laborer in Belgium can share sorrows and fears with, say, a lawyer in India in mere moments. Factors like geography and social status are no longer the great dividers. We can freely communicate with so many people around the globe, a luxury that past generations have not known. Fear belonged to those who directly experienced it or, to a lesser degree, those who were able to catch word of it over time. That is no longer the case.

An explanation could be everyone soaks up all of the doom and gloom that the media presents them. This could easily give any impressionable though that there's no future left for this world.

It's not only in the states people are getting like this.

I had a big shock here the other day. A good friend of mine told me he's stocking up on supplies should "DTV" (Dritten treffe vifta aka SHTF). I couldn't believe it so I took a trip on over.

Sure enough he's started building up meager supplies for him and the misses. We sat for at least three hours discussing the future, the future of Norway and the future of man kind. My friend had a bleak outlook on everything.

And this is in Norway.

He's never been the kind of guy to think farther then the next day. But since the financial crisis, he's been more and more keen on the idea of surviving should something happen. (Food shortages, the flu, running out of porn etc.)

I'm happy he's changed though.


Peace,
FK

I was not going to reply to this thread until I saw this post.

I remember my EMT instructor telling the class that if your patient says "I don't know why but I feel like I am going to die" he said get ready to lose your patient.

People feel certain vibrations that are hard to explain. Whether these are internal are external we have senses beyond the mundane five we all know and love.

Just like the people that feel they are about to die and then do die. People who feel like something bad is about to happen, know something bad is about to happen.

I personally have the ability if psychic vision...to see with the third eye...we all do. Some just know how to uses it and some dont. Just like we are naturally able to swim.....some fear it so much they cannot do it.

Yes something bad is about to happen.

Something wonderful will follow it though. You have to open your self to your inner being and tune to the earth. If you sync yourself back to the earth rhythms you will get to be there for the wonderful portion.

If you do not do this though, you will just be following the rest of the sleepwalkers.

Godspeed and good luck.


that's all fine and dandy if you are one of the lucky ones to survive the storm.

It's beginning to sound like "Invasion of the Body Snatchers"!

It's a loss of conscious awareness - their reality tunnels have shrunk right down to the point that they physically have blinders on.

When Bush Cheney and crew started talking about controlling history, after the global 911 psy-op, and you could see how they were using context and framing to hijack the psyche, to evoke the fight or flight response and harden the will within a pure black and white framework - all based on a lie and a fake reality - I knew there would be a terrible impact from all of that.

Looks like the Obama feel good solution has been too little too late, the damage was done, brain damage via a type of mass hypnotic conditioning, but intuitively, everyone KNOWS, so the incongruity has generated a mass cognitive dissonance.

If there were a devil, he'd be pleased with the results.

But the good will triumph, I'm convinced of that, and can see evidence of it all the time.

The references to people of the depression era are interesting. My mother is 79, and was a child of the depression. her father always had a job, and a car. But times were tough. My mothers father worked as a saw mill man, and they allways lived out of town. many times, supper would be what they could catch in the local waters, or kill. people must remember that during these times, people were very self sufficient. 40% of the population were living on farms and agricultural related livings. These people knew how to get buy. Today, most people aren't self reliant in any way. The depression era folks handeled hardship much better. There was no welfare check. They had to make it on their own.

The fear you see in people faces is also a dejected look that will get worse. everyone needs to listen to their gut. it's trying to tell you something. It knows something is coming. Don't you think animals know when something is about to happen?? it's already been proven. We have the same ability. Man's collective conscious is working, and warnng him. Trouble IS coming folks, ---you gut feeling is right.--believe it!!!

Remember too that too MUCH caring is not helpful, since it's generative of suffering through attachment.

To actually be able to care with authenticity, you must also not care.

Therefore get present to your repressed voice which states "I don't care" or "I don't give a shiit".

Then move up to the higher level which contains and integrates both those voices, viewpoints or ways of being.

You can't help make things better if you are overwhelmed with concern.

This does not mean that you won't be compassionate. just the opposite, you'll be more compassionate by beginning in a state of loving acceptance, and then in that space, something new can be born anew, through you.

So repeat after me "I don't give a shiit"..

b.s.


it's all in how you see it. maybe you quit your job and your new job is not as great. whatever

me I want less city, less gasoline wars, free clean energy for cars, and stuff like that, plug my car into a wall socket and drive it out.

who killed the electric car? money and power, not new innovation.

so for me its a paranoia that I dont like the city, and i want to see places with no indutrsialism, no nothing, just rivers and trees, and build a homestead.

thats just me. probably also other ats' people here may share the same idea. some already know what that is. just been such a long time since I been to actual nature, and I never have really been able to live off the land, dont know if thats even possible



alos, i bet if you say you see people happy go lucky , and going crazy people will admit to that too. anyway, you do have a point. me i want nature and no more city

I have been sensing what you have described for quite some time now. In fact, it goes before 9/11. I had brought this up with many people even 15 years ago, people just laughed then told me to lay off the grass for awhile. It's like a storm cloud rolling in, it started off small, but it's getting darker, and bigger all the time. There is a storm coming, that's for sure. It's not going to be pretty. I do hope all the time that I'm just paranoid, and that it'll won't happen, but for some reason it feels like wishful thinking.

I really hope something does happen. Well, a part of me does and a part of me is afraid. If something bad does go down I don't want animals to be involved at all, because they're all innocent. As for us though, I feel it's necessary. Collectively, we could get rid of the subtle oppression of everyday life.

I live in Rural Alberta and I can honestly say I hear it in the voices of my family still in the US. I have noticed at last weeks community pot luck supper that everyone was discussing the implosion of society, how poorly the crops are doing and how much ammo they had... very weird

ROFLMAO asking if people are feeling paranoid about the future on a conspiracy site


Now who would have guessed ....

Sorry I must be the only one to see the comedy in this.

lol yes i use to have that face on alot. a few weeks ago, a mason told me some wise, but disturbing words. he said "yes, the world is a greed infested plauge land, and the leaders intentions are the furthest from right. billions of us will die within 10 years time, just grasp the time now, and enjoy the last moments of it. 10 years is a blinker of light, just forget and live until it happens."

i took into account to enjoy my life while I'm still being fed and have a shelter everyday, and wont have to worry about my family being killed the next day. although i know this will be my worries in the future, im thankful they are not now.

please take these words and use it to benefit your life.

Good analogy. I can smell the ozone right before a big storm. I guess having a wife and kids makes me more hyper-aware of what kind of storm is coming.

-paranoid thoughts. . . but is it paranoia if they really are after you?-

Wow, I'm really surprised, I thought this would be a 'failed' thread on here, imagine my surprise when I saw it like this.

I'll try and comment on everyones post....this may take some time!

Since around September of last year, I have had strong feelings of uncertainty. It feels as if something is going to happen in the relative future, something that will affect everything. It could be tomorrow or possibly even in fifteen years. I cannot even say if this is a good or bad perception of reality.

But I will admit this is a rather ambiguous observation that can be taken in any number of ways.

And as a naturally open minded, but equally skeptical, individual, I have been thinking of this more and more frequently with mixed convictions.

One thing I will say is that this is not a prediction. This is not a "beware of Aug, 30...." type comment. Instead, it is a scientifically unprovable and unsupportable personal conjecture.

It is only an intangible "feeling" that something is on the precipice of action, whether or not it falls up or down I cannot predicate.

However, I am very curious about what you have to say on this matter, especially those of you who read ATS but never post, much like myself.

Maybe as parts of a whole, we shall see our world unfold.

Impending Doom!

This thread is proof that we all fear it, some look forward to it, others are wary of it.

I think it is in the DNA, it is coded in the human.

It is even in my signature line. My signature is a line from a Killers song. I thought that it was appropriate to share the song!

Enjoying the thread Republican08, keep up the good work.
