This video, which looks slick, but ridiculous, is probably a viral promo for some Pacific Rim version of an X-Men flick. It reminds me of some family
lore from a close friend.
The story goes their family, mom, dad, 3 little girls, were driving late night through an intersection and a car came blasting through the red light
right at them, and they braced for destruction and death ...and the next instant they were across the intersection a hundred feet from where they were
and even heard the squeal of brakes and tires as the other car tried to avoid where they had just been.
After the adrenaline went away , they continued on... with a story. The father spent time trying to work out the physics of the occasion, taking
factors like max acceleration for their old Datsun, adrenal perception distortions and the like, and gave up.
Now, they are science based folk who don't believe in fairy tales, but they were at a loss.
Now it seems miraculous things happen, but I'd ask why only rarely? I suppose the answer might be anything, but perhaps there is a narrative to this
thing "life" and perhaps there are script editors busily working to keep things going correctly. Maybe some terrible things are "written." I dislike
destiny and being a puppet, though, if true, though it absolves one from personal responsibility.
Or the majority of supernatural do-gooders are drunken, lazy angels who only show up sometimes.
But then I've had a weird sense of danger at an intersection, hesitated and a car blew through a stop sign at 70+... so who knows, I don't want to
tick off any guardians out there... but why didn't I rate a cool teleportation? Not to be entitled, just asking...
And the OP story is weird... I'd really like to know what goes on behind the scenes of this world as the normal stuff blows my mind.
