    Default Strange happenings?

    Hi, you guys. I thought we should start a thread about strange happenings. For example, I have never met anyone (other than myself) who affects lights.
    Let me explain. Sometimes I am thinking about something really heavy, or philosophical, and my whole mind is engaged in it. If I am walking, a lamp post or light bulb will just turn off. Coincidence, you will say? I'm posting here because it has happened for YEARS, and not all the time, but often enough to give me pause.
    I have no idea what this is (I no longer think it's coincidence). There must be a scientific explanation, but I am wondering if strange happenings (such as the lights turning off when you are thinking about something deeply, but not necessarily just that) happen to you, too. It just happened to me now, at work, as I was crossing the hallway. I came back around and walked past the same light, and the second time, it didn't turn off. The first time it did, and I was, at the moment, contemplating how time affects people and how I feel about being a year older, and what it will feel like when a milestone birthday comes around (Shrug).

    Sounds like you have a demon admirer who's in love with your intellect. That's probably just his way of "liking" your ideas. Nothing harmful in that.

    Swift steeds, dreary nights, and the desolate wasteland, all know me full well
    As do the sword, the spear, the paper and the pen.

    This is more of a proof that your place has somewhat dysfunctional public light system. Which btw. brake all the time, sometimes someone is near and sometimes it isn't.

    It’s probably just the chip the government implanted in you when you were immunized against measles. I’ve heard some of them can bleed energy from their nano-fusion reactors at times and that can disrupt electrical devices.

    Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to rip out my fingernails as I know they’re really just alien solar panels that help power the salad bar on their mothership.

    A number of strange happenings have occurred in my life. The one I'm thinking about right now took place about 4 years ago. At that time, I had been experiencing a number of deeply troubling thoughts about what I referred to as the Shadow. I will not attempt to describe the Shadow here in any detail except to say that its existence has frightening and solipsistic implications. Due in no small part to my considerations on the matter of the Shadow, I went insane and wound up in a mental hospital. This hospital proved to be a hot spot for profoundly strange happenings. The one that I'm going to detail in this post concerns a little slip of paper that some patient unknown to me had posted on the wall at some point prior to my discovering it. It read, "There isn't anybody here but you and your Shadow"--exactly the thought that had been plaguing me during the few days leading up to that moment. Some will say it was a coincidence, but I know better.

    I wish that was the case. However, this has happened numerous times in different countries, from North America to South America and Europe (never been to Asia yet)....different states within those different countries as well. I know it sounds crazy, but I wouldn't be posting it here if it was just a little thing.

    I know. I know. It sounds absolutely crazy. Which is why I am posting here and not telling anyone in real life. I knew, too, that this would come with an endangering to my reputation ...but, I don't lie, so...wo tf knows? Maybe science will be able to prove it's just a natural happening in due time....

    I sometimes fail to explain my posts (hell probably quite often). It wasn’t meant to mock you. Sometimes the goofy creative side of me just hijacks my brain and I just roll with whatever nonsense pours out.

    Really I have seen some bizarre shit in almost a half century of life and I’m certain it can be explained in a logical scientific manner. We just haven’t reached a level of scientific understanding to explain how wonderfully weird and complex the universe is.

    You are simply searching for patterns in wrong places. How often do you think all kinds of things and pass next to a lamp and nothing happens ? I am pretty sure the number counts in tens of thousands at least over the years, however if 10 of those lamps go off you will surely notice that.

    Thought about that, too. Millions of times. It's just weird, though. Makes me want to study static, etc, just so I can explain it in a way that doesn't sound crazy. once or twice, sure, it's a coincidence. A hundred times in a lifetime (at least?) ....it makes me wonder....
