Okay so here is what happened. Moments ago I was taking my lunch break, and I was relaxing in a chair, leaned back. I was sort of staring off into space when my eyes fell upon the empty chair across from me. Suddenly I noticed a matrix of flashing numbers. All over the backrest of the chair. They appeared to be in numerical order quickly counting from 0 to 9 indefinitely. Each individual gridspace of the matrix was counting at a slightly different rate. Most appeared to be counting at approximately 8 counts per second, others slower and some a little faster. The color of the numbers was a shadowed color of the chair: a dull gray-blue. I could not believe my eyes and at first I thought I was hallucinating.

Only I couldn't have been. I have hallucinated before due to fevers, and it always involves bizarre tunnel-vision and is accompanied by audible hallucinations as well. Nothing about the number matrix was anything like a hallucination. It was a plain, vivid display. What could this possibly mean??

You think that's air you're breathing now?

I kinda hope so, otherwise we really are in a "simulated reality".

This is the first time this has ever happened to me... if it ever happens again, I am going to question everything I know about "reality"...

It may be true that reality is not what most people perceive it to be but I think you are watching too many movies my friend.

While I agree that "watching too many movies" contributes to overuse of the imagination, this was not my imagination. I know enough about myself to realize what I am seeing and what I want to see. I had no control over this strange phenomenon I was witnessing. I appreciate the opinion, though.

Edit:
I haven't watched a lot of movies lately. Been too busy

Another One..

C'mon, this must be some sort of record for ATS.

In the last couple of weeks, I have seen so many Nutty Threads started, it's not funny anymore..

You saw the Matrix?

I did too, it was on DVD..

Could you only see numbers on the chair?

I think this thread is a few years to late. Just when i thought ATS was finnaly breaking free of matrix/red pill/blue pill threads WHAM this one comes. At least x-files is gone and we do not have 20 threads for each episode.

Only numbers.

I'm not making a nutty thread and I don't have a history of making random crap up. I only posted this on ATS because it is the only place I feel comfortable discussing this "crazy" subject. I think you will find that I am quite sane and normal. Which is why this strikes me as incredibly odd and frankly, disturbing.

I didn't mean to sound condescending, but have you ever hallucinated before? You can see things that aren't there and yes you really see them. So just because you really see something doesn't mean it is actually there. If you had said you saw the chair shift or move or something like that I would not have been surprised but to see vertical stacks of numbers just like the Matrix, that's just an overactive imagination. As I said before I am not saying that human prime reality is what they think it is I am saying the Matrix was just a movie.

Often when people are traumatised they can hallucinate ways to comfort themselves.

Theres no point or reason to there being flashing countdown animation numbers on a chair. If your fantasy did exist then it would only serve as a message that the world is not real..... and that in and of itself may be a metaphor and not a litteral computer program.

It wasn't really like the crytograph from the Matrix movies. I never said it was. What I said was that I saw a (matrix) of numbers. It was really nothing like from that movie. And yes, if you read my OP, I have hallucinated. I remember the feeling very well, and it was nothing like this. In fact, this was more like an optical illusion. Have you ever seen one of those optical illusions that appear to be a moving spiral, but it really isn't? That's kind of the effect I was getting, only it was very vivid and I could easily make out the numbers 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8 & 9 rapidly repeating in each little spot. I hope this clarifies a little that it couldn't have been a hallucination.

Maybe it was in fact an optical illusion, somehow stemming from the rough texture of the chair and the lighting, and my mind "created" recognizable figures in the "griddy" texture which I interpreted as vivid numerical values. Why they counted numerically from 0-9 at steady paces? I don't know.

I guess everyone thinks I'm a nut now... sigh...

What other numbers could you possibly see?
You have said yourself that you have hallucinated so it looks like you answered your own question. What do you want to hear? Do you want someone to tell you you are special and have some special light ascention abilities that will help you in 2012 with your spirit light or some crap like that?

Or, maybe you have just been working too hard...isn't that what they always say in the movies when someone sees something they weren't supposed too!!!!!!!!!!

I know from repeated experience that when I relax my eyes that I will see patterns and movement where there normally isn't. I can see the ground wave, I notice patterns start to slowly twist and churn and there are even times when I look at the sky I see bubbles popping in and out of existence but all that's normal as far as I'm concerned and that's sorta what I expected to read before I opened this thread but you surprised me.

I have never heard of or seen what you describe but you did mention you were relaxed and staring. So try it again, do what I do and see what pops up. Sit comfortably and relax, let your eyes open and not focus and just observe the room without really looking at it. Just gaze off in the distance.

Maybe it just another part of a different reality bleeding through or something like that? Who really knows?

I think Morpheus tried to sit in the chair but the connection was bad, are there any wifi connections close? shut em off.

on a serious note, we can see strange things when tired, almost to hallucinating proportions.

For what it is worth I believe you saw something but numbers as in a holographic representation of this world is a huge stretch and see it from another’s point of view if you would? You are asking us to believe that what you have seen is akin to what millions saw in a science fiction movie from years ago.

Like I say I think you might have seen something strange because I see strange things too and I do not know what they are so perhaps you did see this cloud of numbers and this world is really just a part of a true fractal universe created in some cosmic supercomputer? I hope not though because I would have no choice but take up a new hobby that involves sitting in a dark corner, drooling to myself and gibbering in tongues as I waited for the end as I am not one for being a character in a game or simulation.

Anyway an example of something I see at night in darkness are black moving shapes moving around in the darkness. They are misty shapes swirling with what seems to be intelligence but it cannot be intelligence as they have no form and are as wraithlike as the vaguest of all wraiths and gravity does not seem to matter to them. I have never told anyone this and why should but I am telling you because you are going to get slammed and I am in my own way taking up a stance beside you because others (myself included) are seeing thing too.

Perhaps you did actually see something that your mind had to turn into something you could recognise – like a structure consisting of numbers because you had no frame of reference and therefore your mind filled in the vast blanks in what was actually presented to you.

In my own case I have objectified what I see as figments of imagination because I can engage with my chakras and manipulate my energies – it would seem. Therefore when I watch these black misty things I sometimes raise a hand and beacon them closer and they seem to respond, coming closer, swirling up above me near the ceiling and is it my mind playing tricks when I sense a presence/s?

I never wake my wife as I assume she will not see them and I will pay the toll for waking her for nothing but I am happy to watch them swirling around in silence, my ears ringing as I do the “relaxation from my feet to my head” stuff before I drift off to sleep.

I am very keen and adept at meditation you see so this habit I have taken to over many years may well be related to the wraiths I see in darkness or I am simply hallucinating and you are also simply hallucinating?

I am not meaning to offend you by the way I am not the offending type but I have to put this to you so you can think on this from both sides of the coin.

I close my eyes and the blackness that comes from closed eyelids in a dark room is at hand, no movement other than the silent visual hiss of white noise. I open them again and the swirling black on black shapes are there again, I close them again and silent visual hiss of white noise again and no wraiths.

I think you saw something because I am seeing some “things” – what did you see though that is the big question.

Did I mention that I have seen several UFO’s too (with witnesses)? We are all nuts in our own way so do not worry

I'm not seeking attention. What am I supposed to do when I experience something as bizarre as this? Keep it to myself? I wanted to share this in case someone might know what could cause it.

I should point out that the sequence was only visible on the chair, and nowhere else. Unless I begin seeing it elsewhere, I am going to attribute it to an optical illusion caused by the texture of the chair and the lighting in the room. My mind may have just filled in the gaps, you might say.

I would like to point out that some people have synethesia (sp?) that causes them to see sound. Certain vibrations and frequencies are visible as colors in the air to them. Also some people see different numbers and letters as certain colors. It is not universal among those who have this condition (i.e. some people see 7 as red, but others may see it as green).

I know it is difficult to believe, but if you know me, you know I don't just make crap up.

Also, I do not buy into that 2012 bullcrap. I'm not superstitious. I don't think we are in a simulated reality (although it could be possible, and if we were, we would never know it). I do believe that our brains are capable of much, much more than we know.

Thanks everyone for the replies, even the sarcastic ones.

Thank you for having the courage to post what you saw and I do not think you are an attention seeker any more than any other human is an attention seeker so I hope you are not in any way put off from posting in future.

Us wackos have to stick together (joke)

Hi there

I'm new as a member, but I can see a pattern emerging already in many threads. Often debunked or insulted! Not exactly the ATS I have been looking at for a couple of years.

Back to your topic...

It is well known in many areas of psychology that children, especially amongst those who experienced more than one episode of severe fever, (as this is usually accompanied with hallucinations) at some point continue to have episodes of acute awareness, beyond the scope of other humans, who will unfortunately dismiss the 'sensitive' under many labels of convenience and of course usually get them medicated asap. T

This is due to ignorance and arrogance in the main. Many great sensitives have been almost destroyed by their abilities that do not sit well or at all with mainstream quacks use to dealing with bog standard conditions.

I would advise you to encourage your visions (find info on self protection and projection) and if you're lucky enough to get more(?) record everything for your own and others benefit.

Extraordinary incidents of shifts of consciousness and reality are now increasing for many reasons. Affecting Planetary influences both internal and external are the reason.

Go with it and see!
