Over the last couple years i have noticed with an uncanny accuracy i am always happening to look at a clock when it is 1:11 11:11 2:22 9:11 etc..
Now being what i consider a very skeptical person i am looking at this with the information i know and to not attribute it to anything paranormal.
Now heres my theory and feel free to disagree with me and share your own opinion in an adult fashion and try to stay on topic with the posts please.
I am convinced that the only reason this occurs is cause we are subconsciously training our brains to look at the clock without even realizing it. My theory comes from watching my dogs behavior bare with me lol.
Now i am sure most would agree with me that dogs probably do not have a conception of time as this is a human attribute. Yet without failure my dogs internal clock will always tell them when it is either there dinner time 6:30 or the usual times they would go outside etc. my point is without them knowing what time is they have a timed schedule.
So my best guess is without us realizing we are training our own internal clocks to notice these certain times 1:11 11:11 by something in our brain telling us hey look at the clock lol. In the same way my dogs internal clocks say hey its 6:30 i should be eating. The more we notice the more we are training our brains subconsciously to look at the clock at these time then we start seeing it much more frequently cause we are looking for it without realizing. Just my own personal theory and look forward to others opinions on my thoughts thanks for your time ats.

MY theory is that we look at the clock many times but when it is a number that means nothing but the time
like 2:00 we just say "it's two o'clock" or 3:15 "it's three fifteen.
But when the number is something of significance like 9:11 or 12:34 then we stop and say "wow, that's weird".
