Have you ever considered you are just becoming psychic? Perhaps your recollection of future events is not a time slip at all; rather, you have become
more intuitive and can see things before they occur.
Ah, closer to what is happening.
I've read all the comments on this thread and realized that the account of the op is not an isolated experience, which is a good sign. If it was
isolated, it might be dismissed as simply a lapse in mental attention or some other such excuse. Clearly, it is not - more people are experiencing
If I may provide another analogy to my earlier post - imagine a particular time-line like a strip of film. The film moves through the projector at a
certain speed and due to light passing through individual frames, one at a time, an image appears on a screen. The mind is like a screen on which the
perception of time passes as events seem to occur. The frames which have preceeded that moment seem to have passed from existence, the frames yet to
come seem to be unknown. Only this moment exists. Or does it?
Obviously, the film strip exists in it's entirety, but to the observer it exists only in fleeting moments of time on the 'screen' of their mind.
The light illuminating each individual frame could be compared to consciousness or awareness if you prefer.
What do you think 12/21/2012 or to some people 10/28/2011 really signifies? It is not the "end of the world", but it is a definite change to the
way time is perceived and experienced. For some, this may mean that more frames of the film are illuminated at any given point in time than just the
individual frame most people are accustomed to experiencing, for others, the frames will appear 'out of sync'. The word "recollection" used in
your post is perfect for describing this effect. You see, the film already exists, some may even have seen the film before, but in either case,
people are 'recollecting' the scenes in the film in a way never before experienced. Now, throw into this analysis the existence of alternate time
lines and you become aware of the inter-meshing or over-lapping of events that were, are, and are yet to come. The possibilities are endless and the
effect very disconcerting unless an understanding of what 'time' is, becomes understood.
For the poster that claims an individual appeared on an album cover that they never before had noticed being there, perhaps this will help in
understanding. Alternate time lines allow for different outcomes and as these lines begin to merge many 'strange' things will occur. People that
were once dead will be alive, events that were remembered as once occurring will occur again, etc.
As you stated in your post, some people will consider this an increase in psychic abilities or a blossoming of intuition, sadly some will simply think
they are 'losing their minds'.
Hopefully, this post will help to make sense about what is happening. One thing is certain - this awareness will only increase in the time to come.
