It sounds like you have not fully let him go yet. Part of you is still connecting him with you, whether it be consciously which you would be aware of or subconsciously. I suggest focusing on the qualities you want in a partner or for that matter anyone you want to be associated with your life, as well; stay open to those vibrations while simultaneously focusing on doing things that make you happy. Good luck and stay strong. Miss this has nothing to do with the subject at hand which is synchronicity, nothing.

I read your comment in its entirety waiting for a synchronistic punch and found none but instead encountered typically what every woman goes through, mostly teenagers when they find someone they might be interested in. They already know the answer to their question but seek to find an outside opinion that would give them a reason not to listen to their brutally honest conscience.

Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds LSD

The reason your conscience is stopping you in your tracks is that he did something very filthy and disgusting — trafficking and the fact that you are still in his range speaks volume about where your priorities are in dating. Now if you will accept this as ok, that same conscience will allow dating someone you know killed someone and say its ok. That is scary. I feel that the universe is trying to tell you to watch out for yourself. You are not obligated to be there for that man, and I think the best thing for you to do is focus your attention on the beautiful things about yourself.

You would be amazed that once you believe how beautiful you are, lovely people will sense your aura. Beware of him. Not new to seeing signs and not believing in coincidences. I came across this page because I keep seeing accidents around me. Bad ones. About two weeks ago a woman was hit by a car in front of my home, and I tried to save her, but there was too much blood to give her mouth to mouth. She died, and I know there is a message for me there. This morning I saw a horrific car accident.

They keep happening around me. The focus on death may in itself be bringing more death into your life. Do not worry. Do not be afraid. And most importantly, do not believe it is coming for you now.

EVERYTHING You Missed in US + TWIST Ending Explained

I will keep you in my thoughts to be happy and whole and most importantly healthy and safe. The blood in the mouth of the person who passed away could be symbolic of words you are not speaking? If family members are passing away is there someone or some people you have had a rift with or are not speaking your truths too in your family? Have there been any fallouts? I have found that the Universe always gives us signs and warnings before really awful things happen. To me, it sounds as if you may be in danger of hitting somebody and killing them.

I would read it as being very very careful over the next few months whenever I got behind the wheel of a car, or whenever I walked or drove through a parking lot or an area with a lot of pedestrians.

The craziest Game of Thrones theories that we're STILL wondering about after season 8

Keep it always at the forefront of your mind that you in a situation where you could hurt someone badly or be hurt yourself. My girlfriend of seven years and I broke up a year ago. I still love her with all my heart and I miss her so. I feel as though she is my true soul mate. Recently I keep seeing the number 24 in many different places. The exciting thing is, both of our birthdays are on the 24th. And, her birth month is Feb 2 , and mine is April 4. I feel like this has to mean something! I hope it is a good sign that we are meant for each other and will be together again.

Can anyone tell me what this could mean? Or, am I just reaching for something out of desperation? Please Help. In my opinion yes that means a lot. I think you both were meant to be. Tell her how you feel inside and listen to her. Wish you the best. It haunts me. I see it everywhere. I was born on the 24th, and there are many other factors. For the past seven months, I have been having a large number of coincidences. Many of them come from the Internet or television. I have been going through a bad time in my life and hope that it will be resolved.

Two years ago, I injured the right side of my lower back—this is on top of being a low-level quadriplegic. Coincidentally, it was on , which I realized I was thinking about it three months ago. She starts talking about having an exorcism, just like the ones I saw on the videos. My uncle is visiting.

He brought a couple of music DVDs to watch. I turn on the TV as he is heading to the bathroom. Big Mama is on. I yelled to him and said. In one scene, she is sitting on a hotel bed, and on the TV is Big Momma. She says something to the effect of. I am not sure if any of these coincidences mean anything. I have about 50 more than I have written down. I just hope that I can find a positive resolution for my physical pain and move on with life again. Oh my god! There are so so many of these examples, and some of them happen to my friend as well. I came here looking for some answers; there must be something right?

One time my friend and I went and got an ice cream. It was brilliant. We walk to the park. Sit on the bench to enjoy our ice cream. I drop the ice cream. As I stand up, I say great I bet a bird is going to poop on me too, and a bird pooped on me! I never had a bird poop on me, ever.

I came across this site randomly when searching for answers of course! I had a partner 15 years ago. We both moved on. I met someone a year or so after and we had a son four years ago. After 13 years with this person, I left him. Turns out the night I saw him he got back from being out of the country the day before.

That was odd as it seemed like weird timing to me. It turns out he also lives in the street behind my new house, added to that he and my son share the same birthday and his sister has a child with the same name as my child. I found this site because I have been looking for an answer to what the meaning of seeing gloves a lot was? Does anyone know what the meaning is?

My dad is called Gualter. My daughter was introduced to her boyfriend through my new partner. His baptism name is Gulthiere. A form of, wait for it, Walter!!!! Can anybody shed any light on what that could mean? I have always relied heavily on chance. Something that takes incredibly hard work and yet is great is in store, and I can feel it. You described the exact feeling. A strange thing happened in My father drove a taxi. My son was born on the 26 October Many years later I was working at a company with a girl called Dimitri.

After a few questions, I also checked her birth date which happened to be the same day as my son; I established the chain was, in fact, hers and returned it. What is the likelihood of that ever happening? Fantastic topic and a beautiful explanation. Now I am beginning to understand some of my psi-accidents, there is no chance; there is only consciousness in every action. After an incredible spooky experience on Saturday, I searched for the word coincidence and came across your website.

On Friday, the day before, I suddenly thought of an ex-boyfriend, even though I am in a fantastic relationship with someone else now. The feeling was overpowering, so I started to write a letter to him. On Saturday, I drove up to see my boyfriend. On the freeway, I thought I was going mad. I saw this ex-boyfriend, in his pick up truck, towing a car similar to mine I drive the newer version.

It went to voicemail, but I left a message. It was too much for me; I ran away to be by myself. In some cases, events were happening to me on a daily basis, and at first, I had no understanding as to why these things were happening. It soon became clear to me that there was a significant pattern to all of the events. That, in some way or another I was either thinking about them or had something related, on my mind. It was freaking me out at first, and now after many years, it comes as no surprise when crazy things happen. Anyway, I will share one of my most recent events.

I was collected by a colleague from the station, and we walked by foot to the campus some 15 minutes away. This was 15 years ago. As the day passed and I had finished my talk, I made my way back to the station some 4 hours later. As I went the way towards my platform, I had been told by the ticket man that I had just missed my train back to Nottingham and that the next train was in 40 mins. As I waited on the platform for the train to arrive it was signaled to be further delayed.

I shifted from my spot and went to get a coffee. As the train approached and started to slow down in front of me, I slightly adjusted myself to where the exit door for the train would be so I could get on. At the point, the carriage I was going to board was going past me very slowly, and I was looking into the carriage.

I guess my mind was playing up, haha. As I stood by the door, the passengers were getting off. But you know what, it was because it happened to me. Now because events like this have been happening to me for the last ten years or so, they continue to happen to that degree. They become more and crazier, but I believe in the fact that if you attune your thoughts all is possible!

The people around me who see this happen to me have now realized that I am different to them and can now understand why. I was reminiscing about happy days when I was younger, and I knew a lot of American airmen and their partners. It was on my mind for a day, or so then I was talking to a guy on a forum online. I knew what his name was before he told me, weird, but I wrote it off. He has visited the same place in Spain as I have.

We fell out sadly, and although we talk now and again the coincidences surrounding him keep popping up. Someone I met came back from Mexico yesterday; he is of Mexican heritage. Then today I was watching a random film, his hometown was the city featured, and then a police officer in the movie had the same name. His surname although very common in Spain and Mexico, it is not common here in the UK and twice in one month, I met two separate people with it.

What is this? He appeared from nowhere and disappeared as quickly. Am I going crazy?

This man has taught me compassion, not to judge others and to be grateful for the things I have. He called me disgusting names, was always paranoid I was doing something to hurt him and sometimes physically abusive, I still loved him though. Well, this year in March drugs got involved, things got way to abusive, and I had to leave.

I have spirituality awoken since seeing how it feels to be free but still love him very much. Well, I have noticed I see his birthday everywhere. I see it in the am, the pm, sports scores, on my slips at work, on license plates, on tv. Something inside me gets my attention, and I see it. What does this mean? I am going crazy; I just do not understand why or what it can mean!

Please, someone, help me understand. I suggest you read something about narcissism because it looks to me like your ex-has a personality disorder. When you accept that truth, it will clear your mind and give you peace. My advice is just to let go of him and move somewhere else far away, ignore him and live for the moment, enjoy life and your two beautiful kids.

Stay positive, be happy with what you have. Follow your passion and dreams and accept the way it is. Ruben, the problem with labeling people, is that it tends to de-humanize. We are all situated on a scale of Narcissism, and a little bit of psychology knowledge can be very damaging to another and somewhat unhelpful. Want to know a funny story? The thing is, she has a boyfriend. When he confessed to me, I did not like him as much as I used to.

I liked a boy who we shall call K. K has a girlfriend. S likes her, and I like K. Months after, I realized that I like S and not K anymore. And at the time of the realization, the girl happened to have broken up with her boyfriend. It hurt, of course, it did. It hurt because one: S and her are so close. Just like K and I.

Two: now he knows that he has a chance with the girl he likes more. I was expecting the worsed. Yesterday, as I was walking to my next class with K, he told me that he broke up with his girlfriend. At first I thought that maybe we were never supposed to meet. After reading this, it gave me some hope. I have been chatting to a guy on Tinder for the last week. On Thursday my friend and I decided at the last minute to go out in Central London. I went an odd way to meet her and got a message from the guy from Tinder saying he thinks he had just seen me at the tube station.

Was it me? It seemed to be the case as the timings matched and then at about midnight when we were going home we walked into each other. Very odd. Kind of freaking me out a bit. I believe in synchronicity. I started a new job about six months ago and the moment I walked in the door, my eyes instantly connected with a coworker.

The funny thing is, during that same day, I caught him staring at me as well. Can anyone explain this to me? My synchronicity is not typical; there is a person I know, his name keeps appearing everywhere? Maybe I have a problem with him? My partner of 11 years lost his mum a year before we meet. I also lost my granddad. This happened on the same date. Here are the spooky numbers. The house number is 39, and the phone number is How strange seeing as she was 39 when she died, and she was born in Now forgive me if this seems weird, but no way would I live down that same road.

His dad still lives there, and his granddad of 90 still lives there. Years ago I was trying to better understand myself after the end of a long-term relationship marriage. One day I called an old co-worker friend for lunch, and we met at a restaurant across the street from where I formally worked — he still worked there at the time. We both look up startled from eating our lunch. Standing in the doorway were two women that I also knew from that same company.

The woman who spoke was at the same time pointing at a poster that was hanging behind our booth, a picture of two dolphins; one pointed up, one pointed down. She always hated the food there, but her friend just did not give up on convincing her. Anyway, when leaving the restaurant, it got even stranger.

One of the main reasons that I wanted to meet my friend that day was to loan him my Carl Jung Synchronicity book. I proceeded to take it out of my car and handed it over to him. My old friend returned to work that day and then called me a few hours later on the phone. I believe four people were significantly affected on that particular day. The best understanding I have so far is that:.

Long story short my partner gets feelings and says he sees signs. My boyfriend is very spiritual, and every time he feels something about my ex within two days my ex-has either called or written a letter, or someone tells us something about him. Any advice? I dreamed of my girlfriend with another man at a beach. I told her about it, and she told me of a time when all of my dreams happened.

It was in the past, and she was dating another person. He may have insecurities. Just because he is spiritual and has some insight, does not mean he knows it all. His fear of losing you may manifest in his dreams. I have misinterpreted many dreams that I have had, only to realize that our subconsciousness is our energy and we can manifest into anything. I had the most surreal experience of my entire life today.

I was driving along with my girlfriend in London, outskirts in an area called Hatch End. You would never expect to see this around here. G: What supercar would you choose if you could get anything you wanted? Me: Definitely a Lamborghini Aventador. A Lamborghini Aventador speeds past me on the opposite side of the road, color orange! My heart was shaking; my hands were shaking. I could not believe my eyes. I wonder what the odds of that are?

Specific model and the particular color is chosen, in an area of London not even central that you would not expect a person to be driving around in that sort of car. This is the first time I have ever heard of someone experiencing roughly corresponding synchronicities. Just as I finish describing a car, it drives either next to me or passes in front of me, not 10 seconds later in an intersection.

Just a few days ago her and I were talking about possibly starting a YouTube channel about cars. Not only does he currently do everything that I had just mentioned that same day, but his taste in cars was also identical to mine. The first time I experienced an explosion of synchronicities I thought I was brain implanted or something since I saw my thoughts everywhere and people saying them out loud, the most surreal moment in my life.

Now I experience a few smaller ones. I have been experiencing synchronicity for many years of my life. At first, I found it very frightening and unbelievable. Now it is a part of my life, and I get excited for the next connection to occur. Some of the most influential events in my life have happened with profound connections as spoken about in this article! Love this article. Amazed by this site. My happening upon it at a time I needed a certain reminder that I am going in the right direction is synchronicity.

I genuinely believe in synchronicities that is why I was searching for an explanation of this one. I was sleeping, awoke and saw the clock at am. I thought I had gone back to sleep but awoke and the clock was at am. My first thought was no way and that I was dreaming. I was awakened and saw the clock, and then I later saw it at am. But I woke up and went to do an errand and I had looked down at my phone clock it said am. Went to the store came back and it was both in the car and my phone am. Now the first time I can see I was asleep, but this time I was fully awake. Later that day another incredible thing happened.

I was in my house and wanted to check on the two stray cats we somewhat adopted for their was a storm coming. So I sat outside, and the cat was staring up at the tall sunflower nearest to our patio. I ran into the house praying it would still be there and it was. I took the photos and soon as I was done it took off. It looks fake! It is so surreal looking that someone did not believe it was real. Now I have no idea about enhancing anything let alone the gadgets on my phone to do so. I did crop it that was it. It was, however, my deceased Fathers birthday, the only significance of the day.

Thanks for any feedback. I was seeing a girl for three years. For the last year or so wherever I look, I see her name. In newspapers, hotels, on tv, mobiles, etc. I have never felt in love with her, but over time we got used to one another. As time passed, she talked about marriage and babies.

I am 29 years old. What bothers me is that I see her name all the time. I am scared; maybe I am making a mistake. Perhaps I should get married. Please help. I believe your thinking to much about it.

Makeup and breakups take much of your energy. If you want her out of your life, stop seeing, calling, texting, emailing her and it will go away, and no more seeing her name. Unless you do like her in which case, go for it. Either way stop decking around, your 29 now, 40 comes in a heartbeat. That was a very sensible answer. If I am thinking of Anna, every time that word is detected even in the corner of my eye, the brain will be conscious of it.

But it always makes for an interesting thought — the idea of hidden meaning. Or that your subconscious is obsessing about her and you are tuned into her name. It tough to know. That makes those explanations one step more complicated than just using the tested workings of our brain to explain.

We merely tend to notice more what we are more aware of, or what we are expecting to see. My mother passed five months ago, and every time I think of her I find her letters telling me something. Can anyone tell me more about synchronicity, please? I guess it is something real. I see the emergency exit window in trains all the time. All my seats coincidently are beside the emergency windows. Many times when I drop friends and family members even they have a seat where it is written emergency window.

Other times it so happened that I did not get a seat near the emergency window, but when I have exchanged it for some reason with someone else, the exchanged place had an emergency window. This has been happening with me for years. Dear Ankita, I see the emergency signs you say keep showing up. It is a state of over alertness you may have inside yourself. Do you have an anxiety of any sort? Always see how the signs may reflect your inner state of being. My brothers and I were all born on the same day, different months June, March, and August 19th.

Any help or idea of what this ultimately signifies or means? Hi, after I posted my first reply I followed the advice given by the article and started to keep a timeline of each time I ran into the same guy. Unfortunately, there is no correlation or any sort significance. If this is a clear sign that the higher power is knocking at my door or trying to deliver a message, I have to say it might have knocked on the wrong door or the message is not meant for me.

I never met the person in my life, and we have nothing in common except we take the same bus about 30 people are taking the same bus every day and we work in the same area in the city the majority of the people on the bus work within the same proximity. So again, I tried hard not to bring science into this, but I hate to say this, but probability and statistics can explain my experience. However, my only question to self-doubt the scientist in me is saying how come I only run into him but not other people on the same bus who also work in the close area?

I have no answer for that. This really bugs me. Now this is just a big old obsolete and has left a void in my head. Thank you to everyone who has read my grump, and If I had to conclude this myself, I would have to say the recent events are trying to show me that science can explain not everything. I will leave it at that.

I have to admit that I never believed in synchronicity or energy or intuition or anything of that nature. I used to make fun of my best friend whenever she bought up spirituality. I would tell her that she reads too much into this. She needs to come back to reality. Well, something recently happened to me that changed the way I think about the whole synchronicity thing and how sometimes science cannot answer everything. Long story short, I ran into the same guy three times in the last three months who is also taking the same bus as I am in the morning.

I figured ok so what. We run into people all the time, and then I ran into him at the bank, at the restaurant, at a different bus stop, then I found out that we work in the same area. One day as we were both getting off the bus, our eyes locked, and it was nothing romantic I am married and very much in love with my husband.

Lindsey Graham Called Trump ‘Race-Baiting, Xenophobic Bigot’ in 2015?

I felt like he just looked through me and all of a sudden I had powerful feelings of being overwhelmed as if I knew him. We even dressed the same a couple of times. Do you think he noticed me as well? I never had this feeling before, and I cannot find any scientific explanation to back up my feelings. What does this all mean? I am very confused. Can someone please help me to understand?

Thank you so much! I saw her a few days later at another organised event and we again exchanged glances and said hello. But then, and this is the freaky part, today I was driving in a completely different town to where we both live and I was just thinking about her, wondering what she does, etc. What are the chances of that, me thinking of her and then us both happening to be in the same place at the same time in a town 10 miles from where we live?

It has just spooked me so completely. I cannot understand why it happened or what it means if anything. I just wanted to let you know that it happened to me too so maybe there is more to it than coincidence. It just seems too unlikely to be chance. I came to this website, because; at least 3 to 6 times a day when I mention a word or sentence someone says the word at the same time. It happens so often that other people notice. This also happens to me a lot! What's more, while Drogon is male, there's an ancient myth in Westeros that dragons are able to change their sex, meaning there's still a possibility that Drogon isn't the last of his kind just yet, but could lay eggs to even more winged reptiles in, say, the next ten thousands years or so.

Perhaps the Game of Thrones prequel TV show will reveal more about the nature of these majestic winged beasts, and whether there's still a future for Drogon and his species in Westeros just yet. Jon might not be the only secret Targaryen. Tyrion Lannister is also believed to be one of the prophesied heads of the dragon along with Dany and Jon. It comes from the theory that mad King Aerys Targaryen had an affair with Tywin Lannister's wife, Joanna, the mother of Tyrion, which might explain why Tywin hated him so much. And despite what happens in the books, the TV show is pointing in that direction, with Tywin saying "you're no son of mine" just before Tyrion shoots him with an arrow.

Although this could just be part of Tywin's constant rejection of Tyrion's suitability as a Lannister, it's something that's alluded to again and again throughout the first four seasons. This is likely to be Tyrion showing loyalty to Dany loyalty is a genuinely new thing for Tyrion, given his rather selfish nature and vice versa, but some corners of the internet think it goes deeper than respect and friendship Here's the facts about Azor Ahai. More interestingly, there's an alternative theory that Dany was the metaphorical darkness threatening the world, and the thing that Jon had to kill to save it.

Yes, there's also a compelling case to be made that Arya emerged as the prin cess who was promised when she killed the Night King, but the truth is we'll probably never know for sure. Some believe that our Bran and the former Bran are one and the same person because of his ability to influence the past. We already know Bran can see into the past and future, and he can influence events and 'warg' into people. Seeing as he's aware of the White Walkers in the present day, maybe it's his responsibility to travel into the past and raise The Wall to keep them out.

Also, in the books Old Nan mentions — on several occasions — that Bran's favourite stories are the ones about Is that an echo of the young Stark's future? Especially after he died so mysteriously, why shouldn't we believe the late CIA Director William Colby, who bragged about how the CIA "owns everyone of any major significance in the major media? Prescott Bush, the late, aristocratic senator from Connecticut, and grandfather of George W Bush, was not only a good friend of Allen Dulles, CIA director, president of the Council on Foreign Relations, and international business lawyer.

He was also a client of Dulles' law firm. As such, he was the beneficiary of Dulles' miraculous ability to scrub the story of Bush's treasonous investments in the Third Reich out of the news media, where it might have interfered with Bush's political career. Recently declassified US government documents, unearthed last October by investigative journalist John Buchanan at the New Hampshire Gazette, reveal that Prescott Bush's involvement in financing and arming the Nazis was more extensive than previously known.

Not only was Bush managing director of the Union Banking Corporation, the American branch of Hitler's chief financier's banking network; but among the other companies where Bush was a director--and which were seized by the American government in , under the Trading With the Enemy Act--were a shipping line which imported German spies; an energy company that supplied the Luftwaffe with high-ethyl fuel; and a steel company that employed Jewish slave labor from the Auschwitz concentration camp.

Like all the other Bush scandals that have been swept under the rug in the privatized censorship of the corporate media, these revelations have been largely ignored, with the exception of a single article in the Associated Press. And there are those, even on the left, who question the current relevance of this information.

But Prescott Bush's dealings with the Nazis do more than illustrate a family pattern of genteel treason and war profiteering—from George Senior's sale of TOW missiles to Iran at the same time he was selling biological and chemical weapons to Saddam Hussein, to Junior's zany misadventures in crony capitalism in present-day Iraq. More disturbing by far are the many eerie parallels between Adolph Hitler and George W.

Bush: A conservative, authoritarian style, with public appearances in military uniform which no previous American president has ever done while in office. Government by secrecy, propaganda and deception. Open assaults on labor unions and workers' rights. Preemptive war and militant nationalism. Contempt for international law and treaties. Suspiciously convenient "terrorist" attacks, to justify a police state and the suspension of liberties.

A carefully manufactured image of "The Leader," who's still just a "regular guy" and a "moderate. Fantasy economic growth, based on unprecedented budget deficits and massive military spending. And a cold, pragmatic ideology of fascism--including the violent suppression of dissent and other human rights; the use of torture, assassination and concentration camps; and most important, Benito Mussolini's preferred definition of "fascism" as "corporatism, because it binds together the interests of corporations and the state.

What perplexes me most is probably the same question that plagues most paranoiacs: why don't other people see these connections? But we know we are only a furtive minority, the human remnant among the pod people in the live-action, 21st-century version of "Invasion of the Body Snatchers. Fortunately, there are a number of possible explanations. First on the list would have to be what Marshal McLuhan called the "cave art of the electronic age:" advertising. Joseph Goebbels, Hitler's Karl Rove, gave credit for most of his ideas on how to manipulate mass opinion to American commercial advertising, and to the then-new science of "public relations.

The precision of communications technology and graphics; the century of research on human psychology and emotion; and the uniquely centralized control of triumphant post-Cold War monopoly capitalism, have combined to the point where "the manufacture of consent" can be set on automatic pilot. A second major reason people won't make the paranoid shift is that they are too fundamentally decent.

They can't believe that the elected leaders of our country, the people they've been taught through 12 years of public school to admire and trust, are capable of sending young American soldiers to their deaths and slaughtering tens of thousands of innocent civilians, just to satisfy their greed—especially when they're so rich in the first place. Besides, America is good, and the media are liberal andoverly critical.

Third, people don't want to look like fools. If we acknowledge that an inner circle of ruling elites controls the world's most powerful military and intelligence system; controls the international banking system; controls the most effective and far-reaching propaganda network in history; controls all three branches of government in the world's only superpower; and controls the technology that counts the people's votes, we might be then forced to conclude that we don't live in a particularly democratic system.

And then voting and making contributions and trying to stay informed wouldn't be enough. Because then the duty of citizenship would go beyond serving as a loyal opposition, to serving as a "loyal resistance"—like the Republicans in the Spanish Civil War, except that in this case the resistance to fascism would be on the side of the national ideals, rather than the government; and a violent insurgency would not only play into the empire's hands, it would be doomed from the start. Forming a nonviolent resistance movement, on the other hand, might mean forsaking some middle class comfort, and it would doubtless require a lot of work.

It would mean educating ourselves and others about the nature of the truly apocalyptic beast we face. It would mean organizing at the most basic neighborhood level, face to face. We cannot put our trust in the empire's technology. It would mean reaching across turf lines and transcending single-issue politics, forming coalitions and sharing data and names and strategies, and applying energy at every level of government, local to global. It would also probably mean civil disobedience, at a time when the Bush regime is starting to classify that action as "terrorism.

It would mean being wise as serpents, and gentle as doves. It would be a lot of work. It would also require critical mass. A paradigm shift. But as a paranoid, I'm ready to join the resistance. And the main reason is I no longer think that the "conspiracy" is much of a "theory.
