Randonauts

My brother send me a link to a subreddit called reddit.com/r/randonauts with a few instructions on how to install the mobile app Telegram and commands to send to a Fatum-Bot to receive a location to visit.

The Fatum project bot uses a quantum random number generator to find areas on a map nearby with a high concentration of randomly generated points. People use this to create a mental intention while generating a location, then head out and explore taking note of any interesting objects, people or occurrences at the location.

I have only run this once and didn’t read the instructions fully before hand so I didn’t set an intention. The location landed at a nearby park to I took my dogs and I ran into a past work college and caught up.

There have been some remarkable stories posted on reddit of other odd finds on their walk. It’s worth checking out and I still have lots to read on the topic.

This did remind me of a story of a guy who would go on inspired walks though his city. The idea was to follow signs and synchronicities as they play out during the walk and refrain from planning any part of the route. If a buss pulls up, get on, etc. The similarity being that your intuition is pulling from the same source as the random number generator and or the same source acts through both methods. The supposition that something is orchestrating strange occurrences is subjective and only persists because of the craziness that sometimes happens.

I also suspect that something like the factum project might be going on with my dog Noah. When we go for a walk he is always dead set on a particular route, usually different every time we go out. He refuses to change his course and the only option I have to get home is to pick him up and turn around. Sometimes he does get too tired and gives up though.

I have tried tricking him by picking him up spinning him around to disorient him then starting on a new path and putting him down but after a few seconds he stops and turns back to his original route.

The first time I let him lead after noticing he is adamant about where he is going we got to a shopping mall. He wanted in but i’m pretty sure pets aren’t allowed so I picked him up and went home. The next time he wanted to go into a shop for baby supplies, I should have checked it out as my daughter is expecting in January. Yesterday we went for a morning walk he led for a couple hours and we ended up at a bright coloured house he insisted on going to but it’s not my house so I picked him up and started heading home. I noticed that the address was 3009 and my condo unit number is 309.

When I bought the condo the first time I walked in the unit number on the door jumped out at me as is if the number was significant. My feeling is that every number has meaning and the combination of them makes a story. Myself I notice 11:11 and 12:34 all the time for example. I think I have a basic guess of the numbers but i’m not certain at this point. Also three is a number that occurs most frequently for me. I’m not sure if the numbers are universal and apply equally to others or if they hold meaning different for each individual.

Interesting to think about and experiment with. I will probably write more on this over time.
