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.

Synchronicity

I have been noticing a series of interesting synchronicities lately. They were happening several times a day and each one I found surprising. Often times they match pares of two items, for example I would be making some food with two ingredients and as i’m about to pick it up and eat it a YouTube or podcast playing in the background will mention these two ingredients.

I’m getting back into a book on astral projection I made it half way through years ago. I will write a review on the book later, there are some interesting points made in it. In some ways I feel like this one particular synchronicity occurrence that follows is related in some way but I’m not sure how yet.

I went to the movie theatre with a friend last week we saw the latest Avengers End Game movie. It’s in 3D and as we walked in we both forgot to grab the 3D glasses. I looked at the ticket before hand and remember seeing that it was in 3D, I have never before in my life gone into a theatre without grabbing the glasses, I remember thinking when the movie started that’s weird, why did I do that, no big deal though the glasses are just at the door.

I think I enjoyed the movie more than my friend who had to think about it. When I got home I put on my apple TV to listen to music as I work on my laptop. At this point the apple TV is seven years old and i’m expecting it to kick the bucket any day now. The picture looked like it was bifurcating as if it was rendering the image interlaced in two locations just as a 3D movie in the theatre plays. This however is not intentional and a glitch. Special glasses won’t fix this. I thought well the Apple TV gave me a good run, at least if I buy a new one it will be a better model. I unplugged the power a few times to restart, replaced the HDMI cable, no change. Bummer, but oh well.

This is what it looked like.

The next day though it was back to normal.

I have a feeling that this means something but i’m not clear on what. The book i’m reading is describing the nature of the human mind and body complex being a set of physical, energy, astral and other bodies. Normally we are only aware of the physical body but the others are there and available if we look for them. I would guess that the symbology of 3D as it relates to viewing the world is significant? Or rather the normal world we see is like a picture on the screen but the nature of it behind the presentation is a structure or system. If this occurrence was a metaphor the theatre shows two images aided by glasses to present a 3D scene and the Apple TV was duplicating the same mechanism, being two offset images, in a way that made me take note.

As more context I have noticed that the universe often reflects back on us what we are thinking or answers questions and intentions, that is why i’m holding this weird 3D vision incident as somehow symbolic of some concept.

If you have any thoughts or impressions on this or have stories similar leave them in a comment, I’d love to hear from you.

What was that sound? Astral Projection

For many years I had a strong interest and spent a significant amount of time exploring practices to achieve astral projection. I read many books on the subject, tried exercises over a few years and had some interesting experiences as a result but definitely not as amazing as others. It took a lot of effort and as a result of some roadblocks I put the whole thing on hold for many years. Recently my interest has started to return and I have started exploring again these other worldly experiences.

This morning when I woke up I found myself laying in my bed in this state that I recognize must be as others have described, mind awake body asleep. I knew my body was sleeping in bed and I could tell it was there and I know how to wake it up when I want to. I could hear from the hallway a repeating popping sound. It was super loud and I was aware that it was not coming from the waking world.

The best thing that I could compare the sound to is a kids ball popping toy that pops as it is rolled. Only the sound did not include balls bouncing around just the clicking. I thought it was so loud that if it was from the waking world I would expect a noise complaint as a building council member.

The sound didn’t appear to be moving, it wasn’t someone walking down the hallway. It seemed to be about fifteen feet away. I could feel the sound resonance of it in the space.

I have had this scenario happen before but not in the condo I live now. In the past I have heard things like footsteps on the roof above my room but the only thing I have ever seen with my eyes are an astral version of my dog and bed and room. I haven’t ever seen any person or creature that doesn’t belong. It’s usually very peaceful and quiet.

During this experience I was struck with an unbelievable sense of amazement that there is another world right here and that we can touch it if we really want to.

For anyone that hasn’t experienced this before, I have to say these are not dreams. The sensory input while in this state is far more clear and vibrant than waking life. Dreams are foggy and transient or constantly changing. Waking life has ha heavier, physically more limited feeling. There is a familiar sense of recognition and comfort in this space. There is no physical discomfort from the body, vision is exceptionally clear as with sounds.

The experience this morning only lasted about ten seconds and I felt myself fade out back to my physical body and the natural pain from a twisted neck from sleeping badly. I tried to hold on as long as I can. Some literature describes getting up and walking around to explore. When I try this it just breaks the connection and I wake up. The only way, so far, that I have been able to walk around is to find myself already out of body.

I wonder what the sound was. Maybe tomorrow I can go find out.

 

Meditation

Years ago I was reading an interview of a guy named David Wilcock. David is an author and has a cool website at https://divinecosmos.com. When he was younger he worked in a mental health institution providing care to people with various types of handicaps. I gather is was a stressful environment for everyone involved.

One takeaway from the interview was about how the behaviour of the people at the hospital changed simply by him holding an idea of love and forgiveness in his mind. David would think about and repeat the two part phrase ‘I love you, I forgive you’ internally in his mind. He Just put his attention on the idea of love and forgiveness and the level of anxiety and stress the patients exhibited in the hospital dropped.

I thought that would be really interesting if a mental activity or state that you hold inside your mind could have a noticeable affect on others around you. So I tried it.

On the first occasion I laid down on my bed and relaxed for a few minutes and begun with a low level of effort or intensity the phrase ‘I love you, I forgive you.’ with a pause over and over. On each iteration I put my focus on my solar plexus / abdomen to represent myself and I would visualize virtual hands to point. Almost immediately I felt what I would describe as a trance like state that was calming relaxing and left open a space for me to continue with the process.

After about thirty minutes within the trance state I started to feel really good almost euphoric. I continued this for about two hours over the next few days and I got to a point where I had to stop because the feeling of trance and euphoria were so strong that it was making me nauseous like I had been riding a rollercoaster for an extended period of time.

During the process something interesting came up while repeating the ‘I forgive you.’ portion. Memories from my past all the way back to my childhood of either things that I had done that were embarrassing or hurtful to others. Because I was in a trance state they played like in a dream and popped up in front of me from nothing. Most of these issues that came up I was able to reconcile them and appreciate why I did them and how they changed me in a way that I can let go of. But there were a few in particular that were not easy to actually forgive myself for so I just accepted that I can’t address it right away and then let all thoughts go for a while and came back to it later. I feel like I am ok with all of the issues that came up previously and I haven’t had any new ones show up for a while now.

One effect that I noticed as a result of this right away is that when I am sick with a cold or other illness this will reduce the recovery time by about four times easily. I now often do this through the day for five minutes in addition to longer times when I can lay down.

I have tried other forms of meditation with other very unique experiences in the past but this one has been the most consistent in terms of effects. I wanted to share this and see if anyone else has the same experience.

This is more of a how to based on my experience. Additionally I believe this has had a lot of interesting results magically manifest themselves in my life that I will continue to experiment with and write about later.

Game Night

0fc16fd16c0d0590ef41ba4a44816455

Many years ago I worked at an internet geography company as a software developer. There was a woman there who said to me in conversation something to the effect that if you intend for things to happen to you, they will. This was about eleven years ago and while people do on occasion mention things like the law of attraction now in my recollection this was very rare back then. It would have been a few years after the book ‘the secret’ came out. The woman left her position later that week.

Several years later I had reached out to a friend of mine that I worked with at a job even previous to the geography company. I received an invitation to a game night hosted by an investment company and asked my friend if he wanted to go, and he joined me. The game was like monopoly with a board where players would roll dice to move positions with the goal of earning enough game money to retire and win the game. This was supposed to be a metaphor for win the game of life. The distinction in this game from monopoly was that all of the money earning activities were very specific deals and they required each player to keep a ledger to balance cash flow and expenses. Mid way though the game I apologized for bringing him to what felt to me like a math party. It was just hours of number crunching and weighing strategy for buying and selling assets and business as we each took turns moving our player pieces around the board. He seemed to accept it for what it was and didn’t show any sign of regret.

All in all it was a really meh evening from my point of view however at the end of the game the results surprised me. My friend who was suffering from pretty high student loans, a separation from his girlfriend and a drastic drop in the value of their condo they could not sell, coincidently suffered the worst luck in the game. Every turn he would get a bad roll or a bad deal and for the several hours we played he never had a chance to accumulate enough capital to really participate. It was a really crappy game for him, and I recall him saying, “story of my life” and laughed it off.

Then I noticed that same woman I used to work with at the geography company there at another table with her husband. She was so pleased by the results she told the hosts and said ‘I had a baby in the game and I’m having a baby in real life!’. She then showed off her belly to prove it. It was clear to me how everyone was seeing game results that reflected their lives. My game bothered me though. Unlike my friend I didn’t have bad luck, I did earn enough to play the game but I was too conservative and before I knew it the evening was over and I missed my chance to win it all. For me at the time this was also true in my real life. I was doing ok, working hard at work and side businesses but not winning it all.

This observation I had that night seems to be what the opposite side of law of attraction looks like. Where one side is pushing outwardly a desired idea or feeling and seeing it come back the other is simply observing all of the different parts of your experience as they reflect back to you what you have been thinking and to some degree who you are as a person.

Looking back now I am ok with the way I played the game of life. While I didn’t win it all in the short timeframe the game took place it certainly paid off in the end. I will write more about that another day.
