Yesterday, I was all warm and zoney after a great workout at the gym. You know how you feel like you are kind of liquid and calm after a work out? Almost like you could just curl up for a nice nap…. you are that relaxed? No? Ok, fine! That’s how I feel. It’s almost the same feeling I get after having great sex. I feel like I’ve been turned into a puddle.
Enough about that! (ahem.. ‘s’cuse me!) Anyway, I was sitting in the passenger seat of the car with this nice warm and fuzzy feeling, waiting for the traffic to clear so we could make a right turn onto the road to go home. It was rush hour, so we sat there for a good long while. It had been warm out, near to 50 degrees and a cold front was starting to blow through. While I was listening to an astronomer talk about the reclassification of Pluto as a dwarf planet, I was zoning unfocused, but intently on the fluttering foil-looking decorations that were strung in 4 rows between two poles at the used car lot across the road. They were blowing towards me and were furiously flapping in the stiff breeze.
I thought, “Gee, they are just foil, and in the weather constantly, I wonder what it would actually take for one of those to start coming off.” I watched a few more seconds, staring at the same point and then.. omg… that part peeled away from the wire!!! FREEAKY!! I watched a bit longer, thinking maybe it had already been off and I hadn’t realized it, but then it just kept coming off, more and more until about a 5 foot piece of it was flapping around, the weight pulling more and more off the wire.
I said to hubby, “I was just thinking what it would take to get one of those banners to start to come apart!”
He said, “Yeah, I was just watching that one and it started peeling off the wire.”
I was glad I wasn’t the only one to see it, because it validated that we saw it happen, not that it had already been peeling and then we noticed it.
So which one was it? Was it premonition? Was it simple coincidence? Or was is quantum manifesting?
Did I know it was going to come off just before it did? (premonition)
Did I factor in the logic of how the thing could deteriorate and then figure a stiff breeze would pull it off and just happen to be there when it did? (coincidence)
Did I think about the piece pulling away from the wire with that focused thought process and make my own reality occur? (quantum manifesting)
I like this example because there aren’t very many complex variables to it.
Hubby says there has been research into how we actually see things. He says there is science to support the thought that we actually are conscious of things with our mind before we actually see them with our eyes. Since the time between our seeing an image and the time it takes for our minds to make sense of what we are seeing is brief, but there, we naturally fill in the missing time with what we EXPECT to see and thus we are always looking a tiny bit into the future.
Dunno. Anyone have any ideas?
