Yeah, and she looks and ACTS like my sister in law.
For whatever reason, many of these same TV moments have affected others who grew up around the same time as I did. They too were haunted or moved by a particular scene that has stuck with them. While each of our lists are unique, I find that certain show memories are shared among those whose lives run along similar paths—with the show being a common link.
I can only imagine what a film about helpless humans treated like pests or pets by a race of intelligent giant aliens, does to a developing mind. Perhaps this movie stimulated some kind of empathetic pathway in our psyches, teaching us to be more understanding of those who are different than us—physically or philosophically.
If we all do live in a computer simulation—or something similar—as I’ve come to believe, what better way to manipulate populations and individuals than with the combination of movies and shows that they bombard our brains with? Our unique combination of media experiences could easily be used to influence our thoughts and actions. The stories alone could have an effect. In addition, these movies could have codes that connect with our brains, which can begin or complete a download we are meant to receive at a certain time.
Just as our digital world is coded, our reality can be broken down to mathematics as well. So it’s likely very possible for us to receive uploads and downloads and upgrades from various sources directly to our minds. And it just makes sense to me that things we scan with our eyes or experience with our senses would be among them. In fact, much like a video game, you may not meet a certain character, get a certain task, or receive a certain clue until you’ve seen, heard, or done something that is coded to unlock this programming. Perhaps that’s why our life at times seems to go in circles—same jobs, same kind of dates, some old issues—because we haven’t done the task required to send in the new program. For the record, I did not originate the belief of brain or visual scan uploads. It’s been the stuff of sci-fi for decades and a major concept of kabbalah for centuries. According to kabbalah, the combination of Hebrew letters acts like a code, that when scanned with our eyes release certain energies.
And now, all these years later, when we hear 'that theme song' or see a moment from 'that show' - if the conditions are just right - the memory and the feeling, returned, are so powerful we, if only for a few fleeting moments, time travel.
In addition, there is something McLuhan named 'amputations' which he believes .. Every extension of mankind, especially technological extensions, have the effect of amputating
Amputation is the removal of an injured or diseased body part. An amputation may be the result of a traumatic injury, or it may be a planned operation to prevent the spread of the disease
