    Has anyone noticed an increase in weird behavior lately? Maybe friends or family members who were normal starting to act weird and say weird things?

    I have noticed some small things with a couple family members, mentioning things like an increase in weird dreams, but nothing major.

    I've noticed it on the internet though.

    However, that may just be because I have become increasingly interested in strange things myself, and am thus drawn to these things. (I'm talking about things like parallel universes, unusual religious ideas, etc, and new agey stuff) So it could appear to me that there is an increase, simply because I am reading about it more. Like how when you buy a new car, you seem to notice more of them.

      Im glad I came across your question. I do believe you are noticing something very subtle that is taking place in or world at this time. I began to notice strange things about the end of 2011 and beginning of 2012.
      If I hear back from you I will share more.

      I have been dreaming a lot more than usual lately, like 300% more, and it's ironic that you use new cars as am example because I have been seeing a lot of new cars with papaer tags.  Every car in front of me has paper tags it seems.

      Happy I saw your post because I personally think people are acting different and changing everyday , also depending on where you live or how you are raised that makes you who you are. In todays society people are so glued to there phones which makes them too focused and not able to communicate and lack on social skills, i've noticed it in friends and family. People are starting to get worse mental health which also has a great impact on social media because someone might see a photo of a model who is so skinny not healthy looking and that person finds the need to look like them and they starve themselves. People need to stop caring so much about others and accept their bodies and mind for who they are but unfortunately it's hard.

      Only if Scotty beamed it down to you. Otherwise, I don't think it counts as too weird.

    No - my circle of family and friends has always been pretty weird (I prefer them that way).

    And you can't get much weirder than a group of writers moaning about religion and politics on internet forums. smile

    So, no - nothing new I can see.

    Sounds like something I would like to hear about…what are your friends saying and talking about that seems so weird, exactly?
    I mentioned to my mother in law who is 83 that angels from heaven must have mated with the women of men, otherwise how did the Cro-Magnon or Neanderthals ( those ugly cave men in general) evolve into such beautiful Homo sapiens etc. and that it says so in the OT (doesn't it?)
    ...and she came unglued!

      I never mention my weird stuff to my family anymore. It just upsets them and makes them uncomfortable around me. HOWEVER, occasionally a couple of my older nephews will come to ME with their weird stuff. Like, "that's so weird! Let's go see what crazy Aunt Jane thinks about this!"

      Their stuff isn't usually that weird, though, just things like cymatics videos from Youtube and things like that.

        "Cymatics (from Greek: κῦμα "wave") is the study of visible sound and vibration, a subset of modal phenomena. Typically the surface of a plate, diaphragm, or membrane is vibrated, and regions of maximum and minimum displacement are made visible in a thin coating of particles, paste, or liquid. Different patterns emerge in the excitatory medium depending on the geometry of the plate and the driving frequency."
        No, not weird at all.

          Have you ever seen any of the videos? It's pretty weird. Especially the ones that look like living animals crawling around.

                "These original films of Cymatics experiments were made in the 1960's by Swiss scientist, Dr. Hans Jenny.  Did we see these in music videos in the 70's?"
                I was surprised by the old-fashioned gentleman explaining it… Its really ancient stuff, (from the 60's!)  Not new-agey at all!

                    Thats true. And its very amazing. It leads to new age thinking, for sure. New age thinking is based on amazing (true) science, isn't it? What gets me is that this whole ocean of information is now so available thanks to the miracle of the internet and everybody is just putting their big (or little) toe into it.  Well, I suppose the young kids are plunging right in. Good for them.

    Knowledge of science/ physical laws of nature will save us and help us become aware of God. In my opinion, nature is God manifesting on the physical plane! Some say only the fact that we have souls is proof that we are part of God. This may be true, but we are also part of nature. We can overcome nature, however. How? How can we overcome nature?
    "Heaven is within…"  beyond nature…
    Thanks for your weird ideas. Thanks for letting me share mine.

            - the seat of the soul is right behind the forehead, at a point between and slightly above the eyebrows. Go there, focus and when you sense yourself... Bingo!

              Kathryn, I am also glad I came across your response about the seat of our souls. The link Im sharing with you is a video I made. Its not a hiax or fabricated. It is a technique I learned through ancient scriptures.
              What you say about the seat of the soul is quite possibly a confirmation to questions Iv had about what Iv stumbled upon or have been guided to.

              Please let me know your thoughts on this if you watch this

              So you know Im not making this up I will gladly give you a link to this unaltered photo and you can try the process yourself if you wish.

                In my opinion, the image of the alien or soul results from the curious effect of the mirroring. Your voice sounds very sincere and you seem to want higher knowledge. Continue searching. You will find the answers to the science behind all religion.

                  Its funny you say 'Mirror' because thats exactly what scriptures refer to in this process. Mirror or reflection of our souls.

                  Im definitely not looking for anything in regards to the science of religion. Searching more for truth. This all started with me after my miracle healing and through synchronicity.

                  My life has been pretty interesting since this all began. Thank you for your response.

          Or, arguably, vice versa.

      I agree with that. I did actually think scientific learning here was a waste of time. Kind of like analyzing the prison cage you're stuck in instead of trying to find your way out. There is only one way out, but there are many ways of finding it. God (or the Universe) seems to like to study itself in all kinds of ways. You can 'sort of' understand things through different ways of knowing, but in order to fully understand, you need the skill of rational thinking, and being able to deduce things logically.

    Hmmm.  Interesting initial question.  Varying comments are mostly nothing new.  A study of the medications that people so commonly take these days could give much insight into weird behaviors.  Not just meds for depression, but all the meds…  What the side effects do to people is very often overlooked and/or dismissed.
