I have a great buddy that I've featured here in these pages before under the `rantology' tag - and from whom I received another of his famous E-mails in response to `links' I send to him. So, the other day I send to him a `fortean' link about the number 23 which contained itself - many more links. http://blogs.forteana.org/node/119
To which he sends me:
How can I even begin to comment on this link?
The past hour has gone by clicking into more absurd depth...
Yet finally getting a real look into the condition(ing) I have:
APOPHENIA: unmotivated seeing of connections
specific experience of abnormal meaningfulness
Holy shit, this hits the nail on the head
Thus I sit here shaking my head
Good thing the delete button is handy......
You see, my friend - definitely has this condition - defined by a term he was unaware of. (BTW, this friend and I have had TWO high strangeness events occur to us together.)
But, his sharing of his digging deep for knowledge - which yielded this term/concept - Apophenia - struck me as a term that ALL folks interested in the paranormal might have an interest in knowing more information about. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apophenia
Perhaps most important Apophenia is - "defined it as the "unmotivated seeing of connections" accompanied by a "specific experience of an abnormal meaningfulness". And, it is also defined as - "is the experience of seeing patterns or connections in random or meaningless data."
Indeed, the Wiki article in mentioning other related conditions/phenomena included - Pareidolia, Autistic Savants, and Asperger Syndrome (Bruce Duensing's condition).
To me, all of these `conditions' involves focusing in on `the actualization process of being'. Which, IMO, can trigger `special consensus events' subjectively and objectively. And, which, would include nearly all `paranormal' types of experiences outside of the common consensus.
The Complete Guide to Asperger's Syndrome
In other abnormal mind news - an incredible article from the MSM - Jani's at the mercy of her mind - http://www.latimes.com/features/health/la-he-schizophrenia29-2009jun29,0,5289139,full.story about a six year old whose mind has totally tripped out - fascinating stewy read.
Not far out enough for you today yet? - Try this then - New Psychedelic Root Discovered - http://www.realitysandwich.com/new_psychedelic_root_discovered
Quoting from the story: The brave psychonaught reportedly drank 5 table spoons of root made into a light tea by itself, no betacarbolines added. He was then thrust into a very difficult and high dosage DMT journey. The roots of the plant are active and very powerful. Remarkably Acacia Confusa has one of the highest yeilds of DMT discovered in nature. That it is active with out the addition of a harmala alkaloid is amazing, and reminiscent of reports of cold water extracted Jurema or mimosa hostilus root bark, which has been a real hit or miss in bioassays.
Barf Stew this - then get back to the link below.
Here's another from the link above - sounds like Apophenia Barf to me - http://www.realitysandwich.com/911_cube but - Stewable. Again, quoting - "The communication is written in a symbolic language utilising words, numbers and geometric figures and is translated by means of an esoteric science known as gematria" - oKKKK.
