This is my very first thread, so please bear with me. I would like to discuss a strange personal phenomenon I have keenly began to notice about ATS
and pretty much the entire world.
I am a longtime lurker of ATS. Well, since last year, before I even became a member of ATS, I noticed that certain thoughts I have, or even
'visions', pertaining to the nature of the Universe, and life in general, somehow manifest their way onto threads posted by members. What I mean is
that ill think about something, or ask a question to myself, and the answer just somehow comes to me, in the form of media, even television shows. For
example, i had questioned to myself subjectively of course, whether or not I should join the Army Reserves. Well as soon as i went on ATS, i
discovered a thread where an individual declared that they are going into the ArmyReserves in June.
It used to blow my mind when this happened, and for awhile i thought maybe im just 'trippin'. But the happenings are so frequent and too
coincidental, that i decided something is going on...
I've been fascinated by synchronicity ever since i first read about it in The Holographic Universe, and the works of Carl Jung. I believe it could be
the culprit, but I feel there is something much more deeper going on than just simple synchronicity.
My question is, has any other members noticed this? Is anybody else also aware of this strange fact? I do believe in the Collective Unconscious, as
well as the We are all one philosophy...but this seems different for some reason. For awhile I even thought way left, and started thinking there is
something going on against me, as though my thoughts are being projected and seen, and some kind of force is letting me figure out that they can read
my subconscious mind...although I know this is very unlikely, though not implausible. What are ya'lls thoughts on this? Am I tripping? Or are there
other keen observers of these strange coincidental happenings? And no I am not schizophrenic, I know ppl cannot read or physically see my thoughts,
contrary to what a schizo believes. It was just a theory nothing else.
Anyways, sorry for my articulation
