Ok, I know I am not tired and wasn't "drifting". However my focus was really intense on reading an ebook on my computer that I read a long while ago. However all of a sudden I noticed that I was at my old desk staring at the computer then my new setup, when things blurred as I drew back. Odd thing was, I was looking at the time on my computer. Instead of being today it was on 11/09/2010.
Now my old desk is across the room and totally different style. I have my computer on basically a coffee/bedside table since I wanted to make my actual deskspace into an art desk. So this and the date thing tweaked me out.

I'm trying to figure out the explanation. How I could've suddenly been back at my desk with my whole computer setup and then shift right back to my new desk. Best I could describe the transference is like when you realize you're in a dream and suddenly you wake up cause you realized you were dreaming.

again I'm confused by this. I've been trying harder to astral travel more lately and I'm so far thinking it's a side effect. I've also been praying to be able to do this (timeslip) but more controlled or in one incident going back and being able to change things (butterfly effect basically). so I'm wondering if I've wished it enough to have it granted? Something worth actually trying to pursue or a dangerous path?

As opposed to "odd" what is a normal time shift...? I would think that any type of slip in time would be "odd", unless these this type of thing is throughly and officially documented, your entire post based on your title is....well debunked.

For as long as I can recall, I've been interested in the nature of consciousness and how it fits in with the brain.

My opinion after all this is that the conscious part of your brain has no memory at all, and simply accepts what the brain is telling it. The brain takes the information from the senses, creates a completely fictitious back story to explain how things are currently at, and feeds it to the conscious 'you'.
Most of the time, this fictitious story is quite good and matches well with reality. Sometimes it isnt perfect.
Thats why optical illusions and Tactile illusions work. Because the brain gets it wrong and your consciousness has no way of knowing it is wrong.

My favorite is the Cutaneous Rabbit illusion, wherein your brain goes 'back in time' to wipe out the story it just told you, and updates it with a new one (which is actually wrong).

SENSES --> BRAIN (with memory) --> creates backstory --> Consciousness.

It also explains 'change blindness', because your consciousness doesnt have a real memory of the old image, and also explains various overheard conversation phenomenon wherein you 'remember' things that you didnt pay attention to.

My feeling here in your case is that the brain took the ebook reading, added some old memories which 'fit' the scenario at hand, then changed its mind and put in the new information.

Are you still seeing your dog while in sleep paralysis? Is your room still haunted? Are you still seeing shadow people? And now you are having time slips? It would be my guess that you are just having sleep paralysis and dreaming these "odd" occurrences.

Well that does make scientific sense at least in identifying the surrounding desk. But why would I specifically notice a date change. If it was "at a glance" I wouldn't remember it.

Oh and the guys that say I'm high/coc ained/on drugs in general, for one, accusations without evidence is fail. Secondly, I don't do drugs, haven't had any alcohol tonight, and had one malburo three hours ago.

Also the guy disproving based on my title. Oooo, so I said Odd instead of normal or whatever. Big flip. Mainly meant that I had a timeslip without trying to write the whole story in the title bar.

Yes, yes, yes, and unknown. Actually I'd be required to be asleep if it was "sleep paralysis" even if I woke up and still had sleep paralysis. And there would be paralysis in it. So both those were nixed for this event. I was (during said event) awake reading an ebook at my computer, and I could move my body when I noticed that I was at the wrong desk and the computer had wrong date. After shifting focus away from computer screen to look at my surroundings everythings back to normal.

I highly doubt anyone thinks you are on drugs, I believe he was just making a friendly joke with no harm intended. You must admit your claimed experiences are quite fantastic and difficult to believe or understand without going through them ourselves.

Its still possible. False memory syndrome and all that. Even if you saw the correct date theres no way of knowing if your brain stopped you 'knowing', and inserted the wrong one instead.

RETCONNING
Thats the word I'm looking for. The brain has no problem doing that.
Retcon

Example - many years back I walked up to a collegues desk to give them a bit of paperwork. I saw the person I expected to see.
Then I realised, no, it was actually somebody else sitting at the desk.
I dont think these sales reps were doing any weird teleportation tricks. Its just a brain thing. Cant trust it.

Well true that, probably just spoiled having a friend a drive away I can usually talk to about this stuff. I mainly come onto this section in hopes of finding other people with experiences similar and may shed different perspectives on it.
Will apologize if that seemed purely retort. I also meant it as an extra facts for people to analyse this by.

It sounds to me like a visual image from the past inserted itself in the present without any conscious recall on your part, a past experience spontaneously appearing in awareness.

The brain often reveals snippets from the past, especially when they have some association with present experinces, but most of the time these memories are somewhat hazy, and we know that they are simply memories. In your case, the memory flash was very realistic, and I would say your awareness was fully engaged processing something else, so the memory failed to register as a memory.

Does that make sense?

Last night i saw a BLOOD RED Moon (Located in Sydney, Australia) but only one hour later it was no longer a blood moon...

Is that even possible?? Did i experience a time slip too?

Interesting. Although, giving the state of my brain at times I would say that you felt as though thats where you were, as in you expected to be in your old setting and then realsiing you weren't you felt odd. Then once looking back your mind made it more visual than sensory.

If you did have a time slip I envy/feel for you I can imagine they can be both amazing and terrifying.

Sorry if that makes no sense its quite early in the UK and i'm at work avoiding doing any.

It does. Just hope that if it is that I don't do something like "remember" my house while I'm standing over the grand canyon or something of that sort.
Although I will admit, the experience did excite me a little cause I've always wanted the "butterfly effect" movie ability since I saw the first movie.

Kinda sorta does. Would make more sense if I got up and walked into my dresser rather then my bed


Well as I said in an above post, it probably is a coincidental accident going with a small wish I've had of having a "butterfly effect" power like in the movie. Basically a guy could use a journal, movie, etc. and jump back into his past to change things.

Morning work sucks, I work security and hate morning work. Best to have a good coffee and do a run to get things going.

Well if you flip the 9 upside down it would be the day the world ended.

Proof right here:

I'm pretty sure everything since that date has been a dream, and we're all dead.


Have a great day
