Before I start remember that when I post here I'm often typing as I'm thinking, I may go a bit off topic and sometimes my replies might end up seeming to have nothing at all to do with the original topic. I don't claim to be sane or have my feet firmly planted in the ground, although sane and feet planted on the ground I would say are good.
I've said it before here that I consider myself to be what I call 'anti-intuitive', I could take a test for psychic ability and it would say, "You have below average pshycic ability, totally average people have much greater psychic ability that you. Mud has greater psychic intuitive ability that you." To me personally it's like music. I know chords and scales and things, and my fingers can do the things I want them to on a guitar, but I can just sit down and say "I'll compose a brilliant melody now." The inspiration doesn't come to me when I want it to, rather it comes to me when it decides for itself, "Look, Tracy's playing his guitar. He's trying so hard, should I inspire him at this moment?" (Muse flips a coin, it comes up tails) "Why yes, I think I shall inspire him right at this very instant."
And don't even get me started on the coincidental thing again. Or how sometimes the media with radio, television, internet and all can be part of it.
Or dreams, whenever I have a really memorable dream that stays in my head. Crazy stuff that.
Just today I had to attend a funeral. Now in recent months I've been obsessed with writing stuff down. Philisophical thoughts, the kind of stuff Jim and alot of others would write books about, the kind of stuff people like yourself would post about on this forum. Crazy stuff that I think at times must only make sense to me. Anyways, at this funeral I'm talking to my sister and a cousin of mine. I find out in recent weeks they've been writing things, their own experiences, stories, thoughts. For posterity. It's just a little thing, but in my own experience it seems a crazy coincidence.
I guess it just figures, we were all there for an Uncles funeral and he was a big part of my childhood growing up. A major influence on me to be sure. It seems normal that some odd coincidental things should occur at his funeral. Normal, and a good thing.
And don't even mention current world events or politics these days. If coincidence in my own experience a 'little things' then coincidence in world current events and politics are on a scale of that times 1,000,000. If I look at the news here in the US, and in the world, and look at these politicians, coincidence is even more frequent and of much greater magnitude. Unfortunately this isn't good. What did Qui-Gon Jinn tell Obi-Wan? "They're politicians, never trust politicians."
Enough of my ranting, I hope some of it was actually relevant. If not, maybe it'll be entertaining I hope.
When I'm thinking too much smoke comes out my ears.
