My wife and I were discussing this very thing a few days ago. Everything looks the same yet different. The trees in my yard seem to have the same qualities as a movie set. I feel what seems to be an energy trying to burst forth from my core...almost like there is too much energy passing through me. I have experienced this sensation before, but I cannot discuss what made me feel this way (T&C). All I will say is that it feels like the ride up.
Perhaps everything has changed, and we are the first to notice. Perhaps it is only those of us who actually take the time to stop and smell the roses who have noticed this change.
We are living in an insane time. Maybe, 100 years from now, historians will refer to this time period as "the Age of Insanity"...

I agree - absolutely - there is something in the air. It is also within us or we would not be acknowledging it.

People are waking up, rousing out of a slumber, a mind numbing slumber. What do we do when we wake up? Everybody may be a little different but we usually stretch our body out and open our eyes and start thinking....

As long as everyone who is in tune is not afraid and is ready for change - then anything is possible. A time of reorganising the way we live so that no one is hungry - homeless - uneducated - alone or ill. Wouldn't that be fabulous - everyone at the same time wanting what was best for everyone.

Much Peace...

interesting thread Op

makes me think of this dialogue:

Morpheus: I imagine that right now, you're feeling a bit like Alice. Hm? Tumbling down the rabbit hole?
Neo: You could say that.
Morpheus: I see it in your eyes. You have the look of a man who accepts what he sees because he is expecting to wake up. Ironically, that's not far from the truth. Do you believe in fate, Neo?
Neo: No.
Morpheus: Why not?
Neo: Because I don't like the idea that I'm not in control of my life.
Morpheus: I know exactly what you mean. Let me tell you why you're here. You're here because you know something. What you know you can't explain, but you feel it. You've felt it your entire life, that there's something wrong with the world. You don't know what it is, but it's there, like a splinter in your mind, driving you mad. It is this feeling that has brought you to me. Do you know what I'm talking about?
Neo: The Matrix.
Morpheus: Do you want to know what it is?
Neo: Yes.
Morpheus: The Matrix is everywhere. It is all around us. Even now, in this very room. You can see it when you look out your window, or when you turn on your television. You can feel it when you go to work, when you go to church, when you pay your taxes. It is the world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth.
Neo: What truth?
Morpheus: That you are a slave, Neo. Like everyone else, you were born into bondage, born into a prison that you cannot smell or taste or touch. A prison for your mind. Unfortunately, no one can be told what the Matrix is. You have to see it for yourself. This is your last chance. After this, there is no turning back. You take the blue pill, the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill, you stay in Wonderland, and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes. Remember: all I'm offering is the truth. Nothing more.

Morpheus: The Matrix is a system, Neo. That system is our enemy. But when you're inside, you look around, what do you see? Business men, teachers, lawyers, carpenters. The very minds of the people we are trying to save. But until we do, these people are still a part of that system, and that makes them our enemy. You have to understand, most of these people are not ready to be unplugged. And many of them are so inured, so hopelessly dependent on the system, that they will fight to protect it.

I must think this like once a day - it seems this way anyhow

Dear shansen

Good thread thank you.

I think many people who actually think can feel the same sort of thing, I have myself for sometime now.

Change is coming no matter what, as I look around I know that things have to change but it will be hard. However with out that change we will not survive.

Those that rule in the most part need to rule in hell.

As for the matrix analogy, "Welcome to the desert of the real."

posted on Oct, 20 2011 @ 11:39 PM
Well, if you believe some people are putting symbols in movies, perhaps that part of the matrix was some sort of symbol, for those watching, to catch. And perhaps that is what is coming about, we do not face waking up to being human batteries.

But we are slaves to a matrix. Not a digital one, but a tightly woven machine of corruption and slavery. To suck the wealth and resources out of a planet. Makes you wonder where its going.

Good post. My father was born on the Serbian / Romanian border, and yes they are more pessimistic in their views on life. He has been telling me my whole life that something dreadful, a nasty civil war and the death of America, was coming. He passed in 1995 but I can still hear his words in his own brand of English, warning me of devastating earthquakes and people fighting each other in America. I used to ignore it like most teenagers would.

Now I feel the tension, the subtle fear, and the feeling like I'm waiting for the other shoe to drop. I would have thought that my upbringing was part of it, but everybody I talk to: From my children, to their friends, to neighbors, to the elderly, to people I meet in the grocery store, even my doctor, EVERYBODY feels it.

Modern psychology might chalk this phenomenon up to some kind of "mass hypnosis", due to all the shows on about 2012, the apocalypse, Nostradamus and Edgar Cayce, etc., but it goes deeper than that.

I cannot help but wonder if the Schumann Resonance has anything to do with it. The Schumann Resonance is the planetary vibration, measured in Hertz. From 1899, when it was first discovered by Nicola Tesla, until the mid 1980s, it remained at a stable 7.8 Hz. From the mid to late 80s onward to 2011, it has gone up to 12 Hz. Supposedly, the faster the earth vibrates, the slower it rotates.

It's as if the very heartbeat of the earth is pounding faster and faster. No wonder so many of us are having panic attacks for no reason! Collectively our consciousness may be going up to a higher level, but perhaps there is a physical reason for it.

I am impatient, too.

And - No, you're not nuts.

A little boy dreams of the day he can drive a car. He works for his dream. And then one day, he IS driving a car.

A company dreams that one day its products will be known and loved in every corner of the world. It works for its dream. Then one day, its products ARE known and loved across the planet.

A race dreams that one day it will be recognized as equal under the law. It works for decades for that dream. Then one day, it IS so recognized.

A nation dreams of becoming competitive with the largest nations on the planet. It works for that dream, and one day, it IS competitive with the largest nations on the planet.

A people, made aware of its brotherhood via communication systems created by its inventors, dreams of elevating itself above the criminality of its degraded "leaders." Individuals amongst it learn from the visionaries of past times, and work to spread the idea that it could be done. Groups push forward, and they are pushed back. Movements arise with star-high goals, then become co-opted, and fall into the decadence they once resisted. But the dream never dies, and new movements arise, and try again. And they learn not to resist the bad but instead to embrace the good. Some advance, while others falter. Will the dream ever be realized?

Yes, I am impatient, too.

But this time it is an entire planet. The grass, the butterflies, even the rocks seem to all somehow be working together for the same dream. Reaching, pulling that postulated future into our reality.

And if you believe some stories, it is even more than just our planet working on this.

What are we waiting for? For the hopeless and degraded ones to agree with us? No: We are waiting for enough individuals on this planet to agree that this new reality can work for them. When enough of us agree, it will be so. We are witnessing an entire planet attempting to change its mind!

I'm impatient. I can't wait to see if something will happen and what. Are we on the verge of fundamental changes? I don't know.

I just want to say that Im not waiting for it... Im changing radically, fundamentally... now!. If i (we) can´t do it now... i (we)´ll be waiting days, weeks, years, or maybe hundreds, or thousands of years (as humanity). This is not an evolutionary process per se. We can´t rely on evolution, which is time. Time never will solve fundamental problems, as historically has been proved. You can rely on time to acquire skills on something specific, or technical, or external goals, but time will never solve pain, suffering, anxiety, loneliness, aggression and so on.There is no process for this. Just change now... or else, any tomorrow, no matter how many tomorrows you want to count, will be exactly as now.

First off,
I would like to add, I definitely feel it too.
I have been very vocal about this recently.
I feel it in the center of my chest like a giant weight that is just sitting on me.
It is so thick in the air you could almost cut it with a knife.

I know 'I' am changing for many reaasons, too long to go into in one post but for example,

Am I the only one who can hardly bear to sit thru a T.V. commercial anymore?
I watch very little T.V. anyway and I have always loathed commercials but lately, I find myself getting angry
just having to sit thru ONE commercial. Something about the phonyness of it all.
It is sooo 'fake', if that is the right word I am looking for.
It is so blatantly obvious and unapologetically false that it makes my stomach turn.
Being marketed to really really REALY PISSES ME OFF to no end!!!!
It makes me feel like I am less than human. Like I am just a number who has the ONE thing they want....PAPER!!!

PAPER with numbers printed on it!!!!
That's all they really want!!!
MY PAPER with numbers printed on it.
Then why can't they just come the 'F' out and say it already?!?!?

"We want your paper with numbers printed on it. Preferrably the papers with higher numbers"

I find myself shouting explitives at my T.V. when it IS on!
I have 5 kids and they watch t.v. too. so even when 'I' am not watching it, there's a good chance it is ON anyway.

"dads yelling at the T.V. again mom".

edit on 20-10-2011 by Screwed because: (no reason given)

Lol, I'm with ya on that!

I've actually become quite adept at yelling at/making fun of commercials. I HATE COMMERCIALS WITH A PASSION that I see in none of the other people I know. It's gotten to the point where MUTING commercials brings an inner-peace I might find from meditation. Perhaps I should actually meditate more...

But either way, commercialism is filth and pollution dressed up in a pretty bow.

I've been feeling like that for a couple of years now, and I honestly don't know how much more I can stand. Prices are going up, political unrest is spreading, rumors of war are everywhere. It has to stop or the whole world will go insane.

This is very interesting.. Interesting that you bring this up, and the responses of some are interesting.

It seems as though you are very on to something. I don't think it's a coincidence, but many out there believe there is some sort of spiritual transformation brewing as we speak, and will officially begin on 11-11-11? Some believe Earth is about to transform in vibrational frequency from its current 3-D solid matter form existence in the 3rd dimension, into the 4th dimension/density reality. Something about "4th dimensional energy". Is anybody familiar with what I'm talking about?

You are close....

The Schumann Resonance is increasing, so time is 'changing' The US NAVY has used the resonance to set their clocks (they don't use atomic clocks) But now with the change, time (as in the length of the day) is actually only 16 hours right now, not 24 hours. You can google that...

Have you felt that there is never enough time anymore to do things? THIS is why. But our clocks still show 24 hours, the rotation of Earth and the orbits all appear the same...

In fact, the ONLY reason we even notice this is because part of our makeup exists outside of time, (the spirit is you wish) If it wasn't for that, you wouldn't 'feel' anything was wrong

Now ask yourself the frequency increases and the length of the day shortens... what happens when the frequency is high enough, that a day is ZERO hrs?

I have to wonder what the frequency was in the days of Noah, because life spans in those days were approaching 1000 years....

I generally don't "star" opinion pieces, but do star replies. I give you a star if only for the reason it made me think of what it must have felt like to live through the horrific regime change You experienced and how that would affect ones view of the world as it is today; economic ruin, supposed desires of governments to free countries of supposed insane rulers, war for oil, out-of-control fundamentalist religion, financial problems in major capitalistic countries, wikileaks (which has been very, very quiet of late), the "occupy wall street" movement and its spread to major cities around the planet, December 21st, 2012, blah, blah, blah......

Something will or is happening. What?...... we will soon find out !

I've been feeling similarly for a while now and the reasons change as my perspectives change...its settling and unsettling...its disturbing and calming, exciting and terrifying.

Sometimes I think the "feeling" is the desperation of man to be saved from himself, savior from something...anything...looking out his window every day waiting, hoping for SOMETHING to disrupt and disturb the world he is constantly seeing as less and less relevant and less and less important.

Sometimes I think the "feeling" is the inevitable tipping point, the release of pressure that over generations human kind has failed to relieve...

Sometimes I hope the "feeling" is an enlightenment, great awakening, a time of "sense" where people finally evolve to a live and let live status and suddenly for the first time in our known history we can experience and share true unhindered freedom of self and freedom of consciousness...

Sometimes I hope the "feeling" is the revealing of age old questions that keep us guessing and keep us all unsure of where we are in the universe and what role we have if any.

I've felt something in the air for a while, so has my wife and several friends of mine. What fuels that "feeling" for each of us may be different and the general feeling is one of a culmination of everything. From the weather, to economics, to government and wars and politics, spirituality and information, the whole spectrum of human life seems to be ripe for evolution...

The conversations I have with family and friends feel more important and deep, they feel less superficial and materialistic. I've noticed a change in view points with co-workers, friends, family. To me (maybe out of desperation) it truly does feel like people slowly but surely are coming alive and taking a stand.

Even this post seems important and part of whats going on. I'm finding certain specific aspects of my life being heightened with passion and others dying and fading away, it truly is a sense of out with the old and in with the new.

Maybe were all just bat-s*** crazy who knows...

I believe for a lot of people though, they have finally got tired of living the lives they have been living...I know I have been for a while and I've been waiting, begging people to change the way they see the world and realize were all just stuck in one huge meaningless, pointless rut...

just some of my thoughts on it.

nice post OP!

I'm feeling it, too, as are ALL of my friends. Admittedly, I don't have tons of friends, 10-12 counting some friendly acquaintances, and birds of a feather flock together.

I think it's the bump up to the next evolutionary experiment. This is all pretend-play. We are tired of pretending that we are not God. We're going to remember soon and in a satisfying way. Notice I didn't say big. The bigness of the change depends on how hard you hold on to the old ways. If you hold on hard, for instance, the Change looks unbearably vast. But surrender, just once, and you become enlightened. But this is the kind of surrender that comes at the right time, not through effort. There will be events, ripples that foretell its coming, and for a while it might look like you won't ever step-up. That is a lie that some of us still cling to, or stumble into, as I did today.

The simple, beautiful fact is, we can't screw this up. We maximize opportunity.

Wow, man. Wow. Thanks for sharing and you aren't alone in the sensation you are talking about. My wife and I are stunned daily at how old friends and relatives who have always been a bit backwards and simple are suddenly blossoming and becoming aware.

I suppose it could be as direct as a revolution as you think it might be but I think it's more than that even. I think it's an evolution we are witnessing.

Here at ATS you'll of course get most people agreeing with you and saying they "feel it". Having been here lurking many years though, I can tell you, this thread would have gotten the same response anytime in ATS's history and before that, if ATS had been around. I've seen many threads just like it, many ones even claiming "something" was "imminent" with many people (and sometimes their pets
) agreeing, and yet years went by with no giant doom or massive change. People have been "feeling something coming" for many years, but not just recently, throughout history. How many people felt it before 2000? A lot. How many felt it shortly after 9/11? A lot. Dozens of dates come to mind. 2012 is another date many are being influenced by. But it's certainly not just those dates either, it can be literally any time when this "feeling" arises for different people and the feeling may never go away after many many years have passed.

People ALWAYS think their time on earth is special, think the times they are living in are special and different and this is the time when something massively world ending/changing happens. Unfortunately, history and the fact that the world is still intact, and humanity hasn't changed much for the better, shows us this belief is just part of human nature. Confirmation bias, the natural tendency for self importance, information overload, religious/conspiratorial indoctrination, incredible human imagination, being surrounded by predictions and forecasts, the desire for a "greater meaning" to life and the universe, the desire for change, and many other factors all build upon one another to make this "feeling".

I've struggled with this "feeling" in the last few 7 or so years myself. It has taken me a lot of willpower, logical thinking, studying of history and predictions, a lot of seeing more predictions fail, remembering I'm not special I'm just an ordinary person and removing my ego from the equation, many years of seeing people "feeling" the same thing without major change or doom in the world, and a lot of courage to beat this "feeling" down and recognize it for what it is, a weakness of humanity, a weakness of the ego, a genetic defect laying dormant in all of mankind.

It's very hard to realize this "feeling" is not unique to us or our times, a thorough and unbias study of history shows us people have been having this "feeling" throughout time. People have been predicting the end of the world, the coming of gods/prophets, major shifts in humanity and so on literally throughout history without exception. Every generation, without fail, has had many people feeling that they are living in the "end times" or something similar. People have been feeling this same way and in many cases even dedicating their life to this feeling throughout history. We are just another victim of this phenomena.

But perhaps it's not really all a bad thing, perhaps it serves some purpose yet to be discovered. However, I'm confident it does not actually mean any doom or change is any more imminent now than the thousands of years people have had this "feeling" before.

If anyone reads this long post, I'm sure it will not be popular and just brushed aside. But I hope at least one person can consider what I said and perhaps at least consider the possibility that this "feeling" they have may have no basis in any reality of any sort of incoming doom or incredible change in mankind anytime in the near future and just be a symptom of a dark and troubling defect hidden deep with all of us that humanity has been suffering from for a long, long time. Perhaps even that possibility in itself is worthy of fascination and exploration? Like I said perhaps we can one day utilize the power of this feeling, defect or not, for a better cause than just hoping/fearing/thinking something big is coming. If not, good luck to all anyway.
