As with many others here, I see patterns everywhere that reveal the truth about the world. The patterns are really there and just ignored by 99% of the population apparently due to something called latent inhibition. So the fact that 99% of the earth’s population is ignorant makes us delusional? That’s crazy talk. Lol.
Some times when I think about something, learn something, read about something or see it on TV, it becomes ‘popular’ for the next few days. By this I mean after the topic comes up once it will come up in future completely unrelated topics over the next few days/weeks/months. This phenomenon happens all the time and is very much real. The question is why? Simple chance is out the window because it happens so damn often and doesn’t have a randomness to it; it elegantly sets itself up like a hand full of aces. So I’m stuck with the ‘delusional’ explanations of my mind being read or that reality is a setup. Both are ‘impossible’ in reality yet “Eliminate all other factors, and the one which remains must be the truth.” -Sherlock Holmes. So…yea…
Related to the above topic is a strange happening with numbers. The numbers 1, 4, and 7 keep appearing everywhere. Most of the time when I look at the time, it’s 7:11, 11:11, 7:17…etc. The number 4 doesn’t seem to appear as often as 1 or 7, but it does more than any other numbers. The other day I ordered pizza at Dominos and when I placed my order online, it said my order was placed on 11:17:22 (2+2 from the seconds is where the less common number 4 was hiding), the Dominos store number was 7717, and the description they put under their address was “Next to 7eleven”. My stepfather’s phone number consists of only 7s and 1s (not including the area code). These are only the examples that come to mind, there are many more. 1 and 7 and sometimes 4 should not hold any more significance than the rest of the numbers, so WTF?
The interesting thing is that all this seems to happen in spurts. For a month or 2 I’ll see these patterns everywhere, then they’ll stop for a month or two, then they repeat. Kinda like ‘episodes’, which people will argue that ‘episodes’ are how SZ manifests itself. I look at it and see how it is less like episodes and more like constructive and destructive interference of a wave function (think quantum mechanics: double slit experiment).
Makes me wonder. What if we’re the ones who see the truth and everyone else is actually delusional? And a big reason why our experiences are dismissed is because majority rules. After all most of our isolated experiences have too many uncanny similarities to be simply made up by an overactive mind.
