Synchronicity log for 2018

7/1/18

Today was even quieter than yesterday, without a single standout incident to cite. Really, all I saw today were these brief little clusters of very very subtle activity of the usual kinds I've been seeing predominantly lately, just very scattered fast/fleeting/"in-the-moment" one-word echoes here and there, plus a couple stray, equally subtle/subtively-notable-only parallels and recurrences (and zero personal-thematics too, it bears mentioning). Saw this exact same "extremely brief, non-starter-like clusters" at church, when I saw, for maybe 2-3 seconds, a distinct onset of those church/sermin-specific little stream-of-consciousness echoes, but today just there and gone as fast, like whatever cognitive dysfunction was so active would somehow derail the process of fully entering the synchronistic state in any capacity. Numbers were equally sparse, "quiet," and scattered, these too the lowest overall amount I've seen in maybe weeks, just the slightest few low-key traffic-plate 37s after lunch, plus a handful of everywhere-type of 37s. It's another "negatively notable" day, since all of this has corresponded with yet another onset of nightmarish/mind-deadening headsickness and toxicity, today the worse in some time, mentally speaking.

7/2/18

Big uptick over yesterday, but otherwise the same basic pattern/"chapter" of the phenomenon from the last week or so.

Morning started off totally silent, then entered a slow progression into extremely subtle echoes + some parallels/recurrences during after-chore reading, with more of this type of activity during the drive to lunch (and some of it bordering on that "ridiculously profound, but extremely subtle and completely personal/subjective"-type of thematic stuff). Then at one point during the drive, began have slightly less subtle/incoherent smaller echoes here and there, including one almost 100% identical to that which I had the other day when I thought about stopping at the dumpster but decided I didn't have the time, precisely as "can't stop" or something sang from the radio, which is *exactly* what happened today, except it was about stopping at the actual dump rather than a dumpster, and also with the exact same "can't stop now" or something like that singing perfectly synchronistic with my absent thought of this -- all sort of an echo/recurrence of that first incident, coming back way of a separate, identical echo of another, ha ha. Just damn weird and surreal there ...

Then, as a fully patternistic "semi-climactic cluster-ender," another "greeter"-type of 37-plate in my random/objective parking space selection at the coffee shop, exactly like so many others of this kind ...

Lunchtime reading: this was where the activity really kicked off as far as volume and intensity, though not really cohering much, really that same exact mix of "inclusive/salad"-type of super-subtle activity I've come to know so well lately, the parallels/recurrences/thematics/very subtle "reading what I was just absently thinking"-type of echoes (such as randomly/singularly coming to "risen" in the 'Circle' book, precisely as I straightened in my car and visibly/conspicuously "rose up," to correct the slump that I'd realized just before, again as to coincide objectively yet perfectly/intertwined -- many of these, individually dismissible, etc), starting slowly, as to be more of a carryover of morning's activity, and by lunch's end up to moderate intensity/"background static" regularity.

One reasonably coherent little recurrence: the Millennium Tower hotel, which I'd just learned about for the first time recently, in this super-random spam email I'd gotten advertising it, and then, today in the equally super-random/patternistically random 'Circle' book, it had mentioned it offhand, just like so many of these.

Afternoon went on to see that same thought-type of inclusive, super-subtle, almost fully subjective/"can't be conveyed" type of background static, again waxing and waning to various degrees but always present for the most part, and of course corresponding with another, identical shift into different health/consciousness/state as in the past (and fully reflective of such, qualitively, exactly as I've observed so many times now, and made even more apparent now after yesterday's total silence, again as to grant some real perspective on it all).

At one point, had a couple of slightly more-coherent echoes like during the morning drive, but only very briefly. Best example: it came right as I was turning into the gas station and absently thought about/visualized the bathroom there and how I planned to go in -- precisely as "smokin' in the boys' room!" sang randomly from the radio, another of those "fuzzy" but still reasonably precise echoes, now of the "male bathroom" sentiment.

Numbers, on the other hand, were a bit more coherent and present today, if not hugely so. Still enough to be a big uptick over even the days leading up to yesterday, mostly. It was an odd mix: only a scattered few, token low-key-type of 37-plates in traffic and parking lots and the like, though a relatively high amount of more-conspicuous/"active" standouts, the most I've seen for upwards of a week or so now. Ones I got down:

> Had several of those explicitly patternistic "being driven to park in a single, specific space due to some fully objective circumstance, only to find myself directly beside a 37-plate car." The first came this morning at the coffee shop with the "greeter" there, and then at the mall later, a "7/31/18" temp tag-car when I parked in the only shady spot in the parking lot. And then, later on at the rental place, a really cool one when the man there told me I had to move my car to the other side of the parking lot from where I'd parked, and then, upon moving to the area he'd indicated, I found myself directly beside a 73-plate car there, ha ha. Had one, non-circumstantial/simply super-random one at the shopping center later, when I simply let myself be guided to one of the many available spaces and, upon pulling in, found myself directly beside another 37-plate car (and thereafter went on to encounter a big, "quietly conspicuous" string of parking-lot 37-plates while on the way in, probably 6-8 just on the initial approach alone, not counting several upon coming back out by a different route). The best one was at the market on the way home, which happened when I passed the dumpster with all the trash spilling out of it and was instantly Compelled to pull off and stop nearby and go clean it up, and then, upon pulling in the first nearby, convenient space, I found myself directly behind not only another 37-plate, but another date-based temp tag like that one at the mall, this time reading "7/30/18," ha ha.

> Also, had good handful of those "active"/conspicuous traffic-type ones, including at least one, maybe more, of the "conspicuously slow-moving car forcing me to notice it and get close enough for its 37-plate to resolve"-type ones, plus a damn cool "intelligently orchestrated"/"logistically flawless" one just after leaving the rental place, when I stopped at the curb before pulling into traffic, at the precise instant this van pulled to a stop in the middle turn lane and thus "flashed"/"invaded" vision with its 1137 plate, again with it pulling up and coming to a hard, dynamic stop *just when I got there,* and it coming to a stop *just so* that its plate would enter the exact space I was absently looking at at that exact instant -- so patternistic and surreal and notable.

> And just before heading home, a classical "cashier quoting a 37-containing price" one, this one of the less-notable, more one-dimensional flavor, where, maybe 3-4 seconds after I went into the gas station and got in line, the cashier there said to the customer she was waiting on, "That'll be $3.76," almost immediately after I'd arrived but not perfectly synchronistic/"striking" or otherwise circumstantially notable, just a highly patternistic incident in this case

Had some "late" dinnertime-reading activity, and it too was another exact carryover from the same variety of lunchtime incidents, right down to their precise, subtle, subjective "feel"/quality/behavior/"texture." Best standout example (of the maybe ~4-5 total incidents):

A really coherent "reading what I was just thinking" one, and this one of that bizarre "random song looping through my head"-type of sub-type I've seen before, where the head-music seems to play the exact same objective/externally-echoing role as a radio. This time it happened when the song in my head (which had been looping constantly through my head for the last 45 minutes or so as I showered and made dinner -- long before I started reading/was exposed to the text, in other words) came to "I get peace of mind from a bottle of wine" precisely as I randomly/singularly came to "a bottle of Riesling" in the text, an identical, precise echo given that Riesling is a wine, ha ha. Had a couple others in this same pattern/type, but they were of the super-subtle one-word/absent-thought variety.

Also tonight, an extremely notable "37-covered receipt picked up as trash"-type one, except with some really notable circumstances. This one, despite being exactly like other 37-receipts befitting the pattern, wasn't picked up off the street or anything, or really picked up by me at all. Instead, I found it in the middle of a newspaper that I'd fished out of the recycling bin today for the cartoons in it, taking it out whole and immediately putting it away, without opening it up -- until tonight, when I found, buried in the middle of it, a couple pieces of junk mail, presumably put there by whoever had thrown it away, along with a single receipt, this folded *just so* that the line "INSTANT SAVINGS   $3.70" was directly in the middle of it and directly in my line of sight, as to be the very first thing to automatically "strike" me upon my registering the receipt, etc (and with a couple other scattered "$3.70"s printed over the rest, too) -- another one that, though 100% patternistic and individually notable, came in such a manner that I couldn't possibly have subconsciously orchestrated it, or shown selective perception, or any element that would've resulted in some sort of bias on my part -- as objective and random as could possibly be ...

7/3/18

Morning was totally silent, this corresponding with more mind-deadening headsickness, and this was again “negatively notable,” in that I could see the distinct difference in my being so totally removed from the synchronistic state to where there weren't even any subtles and the like, in a totally un-surreal, un-living-dream state, as to so strongly contrast that which I'm usually in at least to some degree.

First activity came immediately after the appointment, in a 237-plate “greeter” car that had parked directly next to mine while I was inside, and was also the first plate I was exposed to after coming out. And, interestingly, this one seemed to me another of those emerging-patternistic “synchronicity repeating itself/echoing in another synchronicity” as I've seen several times lately where some identical incident seems to recur nearly identically not just in pattern/form but in the actual manifest, place, etc. Same for this one, since it's happened three times now in the same place and the same car, presumably due to it belonging to an employee at the clinic but, all the same, still a bit extra-notable to some degree.

From there, actually saw some moderate activity on the drive from the clinic to the gym and then lunch, in the form of a reasonable amount of 37-plates in traffic and in parking lots, all of them low-key/passive but steady/regular for the most part, as to eventually hit that background static plateau of there just being one every minute or less, that quiet-but-steady/very-present level that I've not been seeing very often lately but was seeing about every day there for a while.

Lunchtime reading saw only the slightest activity, now in the form of those inclusive “salad mixes” of super-subtle parallels/recurrences/thematics/very small echoes, exactly like yesterday and others but today so scattered, subdued, and fuzzy/delayed, etc, it was again very nearly undetectable only to me, really only seen due to the contrast gained from being so completely un-synchronistic through the morning. Once again, I can't think of a single incident coherent enough to serve as an example.

The same would go for the entire rest of the afternoon, thought-wise, with it being either completely silent or only with more of those extremely subtle threshold-type levels of activity like lunch. Did, however, have one exception, something of a standout but not hugely notable beyond its patternistic element and timing: when I was at the market and, precisely as I passed some random ice-barrel of drinks reading “SHINE” in big letters, the overhead radio randomly sang out “shine!,” in classical intertwined/coresponding precisely with my registering the word-fashion. But other than that one, single incident, pretty much nothing, and again totally reflective of my “internally deadened” state through all of the afternoon due to this latest bought of headsickness/toxicity.

Numbers, on the other hand, stayed reasonably highly active all through afternoon, especially during highway driving, getting to that point where the background static of low-keys combined with semi-regular conspicuous/classically “active” ones to get to that point of there just being, ultimately, several dozen or more incidents, that point of just overwhelming my memory and hitting that point of “critical mass” where I just couldn't register them all – again to a degree not seen for a while now, and pretty damn surreal, as well as a stark contrast to the thought/perceptual silence at the time. Few standouts I got down:

> Had a strong cluster at one point, beginning with a classical “slowly gaining on a 703-plate car” one, 100% patternistic and notable, and then, just after, a succession of three more, not quite sequential but I think separated only by a couple other cars, as I slowly passed a whole line in the right lane that was moving just a little slower than I was

> Had several of those “animated”/”reveal”-style plates through the drive, of that distinctly “active”/”intelligent” kind, where a car would, say, pull up just so that its 37-plate would “peek” into my vision, just long enough for me to register it, before the car fell back and behind me, etc, etc – probably a dozen or so of these alone

> A cool one at that one market I stopped at for the comb, when I came out and was “greeted” with no one, but two 713-plates, side by side, not an “immediately as I walked out” one but close, after I'd taken just a few steps into the parking lot

> A similar parking-lot-type one at the other market I stopped at later, with a couple semi-conspicuous 37-plate cars side by side, along with a big, 7-8-strong cluster in the rest of the lot, again to that point where it was just one after another

Had a “late,” classical reading recurrence during dinnertime reading, this time with the 'Circle' book randomly/offhand mentioning how the word “community” is rooted in “communication,” and a paragraph or so other, related sentiment – when I'd just a couple days ago thought, more than once, about just that specifically, super-randomly and right down to that same exact terms of “community is rooted in communication,” following that classical pattern exactly

7/4/18

Morning was another “headsick-silent” one, with lunchtime reading being near-silent as well except for some very brief and very scattered “everyday little thing” parallels plus some equally sparse and super-low-key environmental echoes (and these only, rather than that “inclusive” mix with thematics and other, subtler sorts). One standoutish classical reading/word synchro: “baba,” beginning this morning during after-chore reading of the day's super-random freebie magazine, this time a regional-Indian-community mag in which I randomly came across a listing for a “Sri Baba” event, which I noticed specifically because I at first thought it was about Maiher Baba but then realized it wasn't, thus causing me to thinks specifically/patternistically about how “baba” is a common word in India and surrounding areas, and of course this was the first I'd encountered that word in some time – and then in the 'Circle' book at lunch, probably a little over an hour later and completely offhand/super-random, an Indian character in the book mentioned a “baba,” this too befitting both the classical word-recurrence pattern and that of the “everyday little thing” one exactly.

For afternoon, this was for the most part totally silent, without exception for the entire time except for a similarly “low-key/little-thing but 100% patternistic” recurrence, this time beginning last night in the Indian magazine when I read, again totally offhand, in an article about “Carvel cakes,” which I again absently-but-specifically noticed, if only because it was either the first time ever or the first in a long time I'd ever encountered this – and then today, in that super-random market I'd been Compelled to go to after lunch, another where I had absolutely zero plans to be there, I happened across a cold case with Carvel cakes in it, and this happening due to a similarly random/absent wandering about in the deli/bakery area of the store, despite needing absolutely nothing along those lines from there – again fully patternistic, however “small” and common.

Numbers were very different than yesterday, both in types and volume, back to being only the slightest little scattering of exclusively low-key, passive, 37-plates in traffic and a few parking lots, a total 180 about from yesterday. Had a few “everywhere” 37s too, but these equally quiet and few. Closest things to standouts:

> A classical “buying several totally random, unplanned things in the market, only to have them produce a 37-containing total,” this time at that same ridiculously random market as the Carvel cakes, where I picked up four random things that, with tax, came to exactly $7.30, ha ha

> On the way home, amidst another of those sudden, conspicuous uptick in numbers (which often seems to happen on the way home, as if this triggers either an uptick or a total silence, always seeming to correspond with one of those extremes), had a series of three of those “small,” one-dimensional, patternistically-notable-only 37-plate alignments, all three of them being logistically and patternistically precise but still “passive”/quiet in nature, simply two 37-plate cars in traffic aligning just so that the plates equalized perfectly in height/spacing, etc, and again for just long enough for me to register it as such. The one exception here was their occurring so tightly together, notable in itself but even moreso given how I'd not seeing any of these alignments for days now at least, and then would suddenly have three coming all together, and of the exact same pattern/behavior/nature/”feel,” within the space of maybe 2-3 minutes

7/5/18

Morning: totally silent again, not even super-subtles from what I remember.

First activity came during drive to the clinic, with another of those “feeling that universal joy suddenly, then seeing a 37-plate”-type incidents, but this one different than others, with the plate appearing with one of those very slight delays that prevented it from being perfectly synchronistic, yet remained tight enough to be notable. The feeling itself was fully patternistic, coming on suddenly and spontaneously and for the first time today after not feeling it at all all through the headsick morning, and then, about one second afterward, as the light changed at the intersection and traffic moved, a truck at the front of the line pulled forward and into my view from behind the car that had been obscuring it, thus “revealing” its 379-plate in patternistic “animated” fashion. And then, also, this seemed to signal a commencement of 37-plates, with there being about 3-4 semi-conspicuous/similarly “animated”/”revealed” ones almost immediately after the truck, and then a few more plates after the clinic too.

Lunchtime reading: this was another of those that was active, but with exclusively super-subtle, fuzzy, fully subjectively notable incidents, and not very many of these either, as to be another of these patternistically “quiet” lunchtime-reading sessions that I've been seeing. Examples:

> Had several of those delayed, loose, very subtle, “fuzzy”/indirect reading/event echoes that often occur during super-subtle periods of activity, maybe 5-6 total over the course of the meal. Best example: when a woman pushing a strolller with a child in it approached the row of seats where I was in the coffee shop, pausing and looking at me before sitting down, in a way that I interpreted as her uncomfortable with leaving her child near me, and then, some seconds later, I came to a random passage in the book that mentioned, singularly/patternistically, something about “child safety,” also involving a small child approximately like that in the woman's stroller – another that was easily dismissible on its own, but, when taken collectively with the rest of the incidents and their identical “feel”/behavior/patterning, it was pretty notable

> Lunch today also saw personal thematics in the mix, and these of that extremely subtle but highly profound and surreal kind that I've seen here and there, so ridiculously complex and specific yet indirectly so, and purely in 100% subjective/personal terms that I couldn't even begin to convey. And, from a more objective standpoint, these were again somewhat notable in the fact that they were there at all, when so conspicuously absent other times (but conspicuously present at others, which, for all their subtley and fuzziness, these indeed were).

> Today also saw a bunch of those sound-echo reading/environmental echoes, and these of that non-specific kind that I've seen before, where some conspicuous, random, singular sound would coincide perfectly synchronistically with my simply reading of a sound in the book, and happening enough that it established a pattern. Best example, and one that was the closest to a coherent/specific one: when I came to a random/singular mention of a “tri-tone beeping” in the book, precisely as an equally random and singular (never heard it again before or afterward) “beep-beep-beep-beep” sounded from the kitchen in the coffee shop, four beeps instead of three, but perfectly synchronistic, plus echoing the general idea of “repeating beep,” if with a different count.

After lunch: had a neat little subtle, general echo just after leaving the coffee shop, when I went to turn left toward my next stop, but was suddenly and spontaneously and urgently Compelled to turn right instead, which I did, marveling at it afterward, how spontaneously and thoughtlessly I'd just gone this other, illogical direction, thus causing me to think something like “sudden change/another of these Compelled, random, spontaneous intuitive adventures” – precisely as I stopped at an intersection and found myself behind a Caprice car, with a “CAPRICE” emblem on its hood, “staring” back at me, as to echo my general sentiment in patternistic fashion (albeit still with a slight delay/loosely/”fuzzily”).

Thought-wise, the rest of the afternoon was more or less silent, even of super-subtle activity, though there were some scattered and brief “resuscitations” from time to time:

> Had another of those single, stray, coherent echoes, this time a radio/”writing a note”-type one. It started when I went to write “hope” on a note I was about to leave, and then, precisely as I started the “h,” the radio randomly/singularly/patternistically sang out “I hope,” with the “hope” corresponding perfectly both with my starting the “h” and with my random/absent thought of “hope”

> Had several of those daylong, longwinded thematic/parallel/”everyday little thing” sort of hybrid echoes as I've been seeing here and there, these of a newish sort of multi-day kind, where I'll keep encountering the most random and subtle and common things a conspicuous number of times over a series of days, most coherently the “Tahoe” and “Colorado” and several other ones that I've noted before, and today along with a handful of “normal,” “within the day” little-thing-type of parallels and the like

> A radio/number-repeat hybrid soon after lunch, when I heard “twenty-two” on the radio, which I noticed absently since I've been seing a slight uptick in “everywhere”/super-random “quiet” 22-repeats here and there the last few days, thus causing me to absently-but-distinctly/patternistically think “twenty-two” – precisely as I passed a random house with the number “220” by the door, which was another that was easily dismissible on its own except that this is the exact same “fuzzy” pattern/same “feel” of many of these super-subtle number/thought/echo hybrid incidents I've been seeing the last few days or so. Saw several 1212s and variants in this fashion today, too, as I've also been seeing the last couple days in particular.

> The last of the day's thought-type activity came during the evening visit to the gym sauna, and this was another of those “repeating geographical/situational”-type of incidents, just like another time when I was in this exact same sauna in the exact same circumstances (4 or 5 other men in there, all having a big animated conversation of similar energy and “feel,” etc), and again with the same results: very very subtle/indirect/fuzzy but definitely present echoes of the super-random newspaper I was reading throughout, along with several daylong/everyday-little-thing parallels/recurrences, all stemming from the equally super-random bits and pieces of the men's rambling conversation (and fully objective, without my even being engaged in the conversation period, just a passive observer with absolutely no influence on anything, and with my newspaper totally out of view to the other men). Another that was mildly notable on its own, but a bit moreso given that “repeating environmental/geographical/situational incident” patternistic element of it all.

> Also in the sauna, a few “involuntary bodily function”-type of reading incidents, and these too of nearly the exact same kind that I've seen before, being more of those where, precisely as I hit that point of critical mass and began to sweat, after being in the sauna for ~10 minutes before, I immediately encountered several vague-but-notable references to “heat” and “hot” and “overheating,” when I'm 100% sure I'd seen none before then

Traffic plates today were very much like several other afternoons I've seen lately, with just scattered low-key passive plates interspersed with a few semi-standouts and classically patternistic active ones, probably a dozen or so total 37-plates throughout the entire afternoon despite my being out an abnormally long time today (and, I noticed, another of those days where the ride home saw a total *end* of activity, rather than the sudden uptick/intensifying that has happened some other days). Couple standouts:

> A classical “parking in the only available shady spot in a big parking lot, only to find myself directly beside a 37-plate” one, this time at the market before going home

> Then, when coming out of the market, an equally patternistic “immediately upon coming out”-type one, when I went to step from the curb into the parking lot and suddenly saw a car coming for me that I'd missed, thus causing me to urgently/distinctly/patternistically notice it and thus see its “3702” front-mounted plate, and this with that “animated”/”HERE I COME” type of quality to it, ha ha

> A little trend that I noticed today, I think mostly just after the appointment during the morning, on the way to the coffee shop: several of those “coming to a stop at a random intersection, only to find myself directly behind a 37-plate car, such that its plate was 'staring' at me for the duration of the light,” I think about 3-4 within the course of just that brief drive, though I can't remember how many 100%

7/6/18

Still following that recent "quiet" period for the most part.

Morning and lunch both were completely silent today, not so much as a super-subtle that I can recall, and this again "negatively notable" in that it corresponded so explicitly with that same extreme, "interally deadened" level of headsickness and depersonalization, etc. Definitely a correlation there much of the time.

Did see a little number activity on the way to lunch, but even this was pretty subtle:

> First, another of those "first plates of the day being a 37" one, and this time it was one of those "distinctly noticing a car without seeing its plate, only to look closer at it and discover its 37-plate," this time a nice, tricked-out pickup truck parked along the curb that I noticed from far away and studied the whole time I approached it, only to discover it to have a 703-plate.

> Then once on the road, a loose pair, beginning with a classical "reckless driver"-type one when a van suddenly cut recklessly and dramatically/"animatedly" from a line of cars, precisely as I passed, and thus "revealed" its 739 plate, and directly in my line of sight/fully patternistic, etc. And then, a minute or so down the road, an equally patternistic "letting out someone into traffic, only to be 'treated' to their 37-plate"-type one, this one a big truck that I let out that didn't have a 37-plate on it, but instead just a random, slightly conspicuous and patternistic 37 printed on it.

Afternoon saw not much more number-type activity again, just like last couple days but even less and subtler, despite highway driving, etc, just another of those loose, scattered, exclusively low-key 37-plates in traffic and a couple parking lots, and not even these by the time I got near home.

Did have a period of thought-type activity, about an hour or thereabouts mid-afternoon where there suddenly occurred several of those "small but striking" one-word thought/radio/event-type ones, and erring towards that "fuzzy" quality/precision, with most of them of that "collectively notable only" level of notability. Few examples I got down:

> Coming to a roundabout and absently thinking "traffic circle," precisely as "circle" came randomly/singularly over the radio

> Another "hearing a word on the radio precisely as I read/registered it on a passing sign," this time simply "know" coming over the radio precisely as I read "know" on a passing sign, but again with that extremely precise and patternistic "striking"/intertwined timing, and of course following the pattern of this sub-type perfectly

> A slightly more notable pair during the rainstorm later, where both times I entered one of the on-again-off-again downpours and had to quickly slow way down due to drastically reduced visibility/standing water, etc, the radio randomly sang out "slow it down" or something like that, both times perfectly synchronistic with my hitting the brains as well as absently thinking/registering the event with a thought of something like "slow down"

> One of the fuzzier ones: hearing "lights are low" randomly over the radio precisely as a car with a bumper sticker reading "LIGHTS OUT" passed me and I registered it specifically with a thought of something like "no lights," again easily dismissible if not for the explicitly patternistic feel and timing, and with it occurring in the midst of several other, fundamentally identical ones

> Same for "out your window" singing from the radio precisely as I watched as, from the car directly in front of me, the driver put an arm out the window a tamped a cigarette, which I registered with the thought of something like "out the window," and again perfectly patternistic/precise in timing

7/7/18

Same prevailing pattern of lately today pretty much, with variation.

Morning was like yesterday in being totally silent until the drive to lunch, during which I saw some scattered, moderately coherent radio echoes:

> The first was a slight-but-negligible-delayed one, coming literally immediately as I got in the car and began backing out. It started when I looked around before backing from the driveway, which I did in a weird, exaggerated way, sort of erratically swinging around in a way that surprised me, thus causing me to absently think "weird movement looking around like that/erratic looking-around" -- just before the first words over the radio sang out "look around you," less than a second later, as to not be perfectly synchronistic but to still echo the thought as it was crossing my mind, 100% patternistic of these as it were. There was actually another, very similar one just after this, but I can't remember what it was.

> The next came a few minutes later, a little different, when I was thinking about where to go for lunch, and then, deciding on the place in Little River, I distinctly thought "Little River" and the quickest way there, etc -- a split second before I glanced absently at the radio's song-title display while waiting for the gate to open, only to see it reading "LITTLE RIVER BAND," this too echoing perfectly the absent thought of "Little River" as it crossed my mind, though now tighter in timing, as to be perfectly synchronistic

> And then, once at the coffee shop (which, interestingly, turned out to be a totally different one than that in Little River that I'd planned to go to, since the draw bridge was out when I started to go that way), another classically patternistic "end-of-drive greeter"-type of plate, a 5337 on a truck directly across from me as to be "staring" at me/directly in my line of sight in that patternistic and quietly surreal way. And also, it was another where I was Compelled to park in some awkward, out of the way, illogical, backward-facing space, which thus brought me *perfectly* in line with that truck's plate (it was literally just cresting a parked car between it and my view, in that logistically perfect "peeking" fashion)

Lunchtime reading saw activity, and in a way I've seen before, patternistically, with a sort of downturn/shift into those extremely subtle background-static-type of incidents, that extremely subtle variant of the "all-inclusive salad" kind of activity, mostly echoes of various things I was thinking/doing/feeling/observing, where it's so fast and small and fuzzy and vague that I could easily miss it even myself. This would again, patternistically, continue off and on through much of the afternoon, as to be the only activity much of the time, and this too following the same pattern of these extremely-subtle-only periods.

Did see 37-plates in traffic after lunch, and again in that recent trend/pattern/sub-type of low-key, scattered, passive plates here and there in traffic and parking lots, with a couple of more-active/conspicuous ones intermixed but these not quite of objectively coherent standout quality (best example were I think 3-4 of those classical "cars turning/pulling in front of me in a logistically perfect way as to 'flash' their 37-plates directly/patternistically into my line of sight). Did have a couple standouts:

> A classical "greeter" plate, and this one identical in pattern to the one at lunch and others, where I was Compelled, against all reason and convenience, to park in a certain space, this one too an angled space going the wrong way, and at the fringe of the lot despite there being closer spaces -- and today even with it raining like crazy and with my having to go all the way to the other end of the shopping place before going into the market, thus forcing me to double back. But of course, there was a 7137-plate waiting for me, both 100% invisible prior to my actually parking, as well as *just visible* over the parked car between it and me, another that was "peeking" just so it was visible and directly in my line of sight when I parked, ha ha. And then, just after when I got out, there was an equally patternistic/classical "previously invisible 37-plate directly in my line of sight upon my getting out of the car and turning around," a 637-plate, and this one another with that passively conspicuous "THERE" quality, not only directly in my line of sight but the very first, immediate thing I saw upon leaving the car, just like so many others of this kind.

> Had a noticeable but brief uptick in plates mid-afternoon, just before coming home, not so much in traffic but in a big, "quietly conspicuous" cluster of them at the second market parking lot, not only in volume but again in the sheer randomness of them and my route into and out of the store, where I kept having to zig and zag and wend around due to obstacles or oncoming cars or too many people, but always ending up coming into directly contact with a previously invisible 37-plate "staring" right at me, and so close together as to produce that 1-2-3/wham-bam effect. Was damn hilarious.

> As far as "everywhere" numbers today, they were definitely there albeit very subdued and scattered and passive, mostly in those "randomly quoted offhand figures/mentions in random reading material"-type ones, and these including not only 37s and variants but a conspicuous about of 22s and 44s, which, notably, corresponds with a general spike in these particular repeats over the last couple days. Best example I can think of: when I went into that one market just after lunch, totally randomly/unplanned (since I'd ended up in this part of town rather than Little River where I'd planned), and was "greeted," directly in the little foyer past the sliding doors, by a big sign saying something about how this market has better prices than another, by "3.07%" or something like that -- whatever it was, the sign had a great big, boxed-in "3.07" smack dab in the middle of it, as to "hit" me as I went in, ha ha. And, many of these followed that same semi-conspicuous/"animated" pattern today.

On the way home, had one of those sudden, standout, reasonably coherent incidents, and this time another of those now-patternistic "thought/perceptual echo followed immediately by a 37-plate" combo-type ones. It started when the radio randomly/singularly and loudly/conspicuously sang out "The sun!," at the precise instant I passed that great big "EVERYTHING UNDER THE SUN" roadside sign with the gigantic, caracatured sun atop it -- and then, a split second after, a drifter-type of 4730-plate car appeared from my left, perfectly synchronistic with my registering the "sun" echo, and again fully patternistic with this particular kind

7/8/18

Another day in that exact same pattern and level/types of activity, more or less, especially morning, right down to there being a radio/thought echo exactly in pattern to that of yesterday. It happened at the exact same time, when I began backing from the driveway, this time beginning with my then being faced with deciding where to go to church since I had time to go to either one, thus causing me to think about the two and something like "got to choose now, since I'm leaving" -- precisely as "time has come to make a choice" sang randomly/singularly from the radio, with the only difference from yesterday's incident being that, first, this one was perfectly synchronistic rather than slightly delayed, and, second, the lyrics weren't quite the first over the radio, preceded by another, brief stanza. Damn surreal, and another of those sort of "synchronistic echo of a synchronistic echo" and/or "geographical/place/circumstance-oriented"-type incidents I seem to be seeing more and more of lately (symptomatic of something?).

The drive to church was totally silent thereafter, and church itself again saw some very very brief and super-subtle activity just like last week, where I sensed those "church-specific"/stream-of-consciousness-type echoes and such beginning a couple times, but they never really went anywhere, always seeming to fizzle after just a few seconds.

Did have one classically patternistic incident at church, yet another of those "randomly opening the hymnal in search of a numbered hymn, only to land directly on a 37-variant page," this time 337 exactly, ha ha.

Lunchtime reading was back to being totally, fully silent today, even of the slightest, subtlest activity, and this corresponding both with headsickness and toxicity, etc, as well as just a generally empty, depersonalized conscious state to begin with, all of which seems to result in such non-activity/"totally out of the synchronistic state"-type periods, in "reflective" fashion.

Afternoon did see some slight-to-moderate activity in the same basic vein as last week or so, seen first in yet another identical series of scatterd, low-key, mostly passive 37-plates in traffic and parking lots, plus a few equally scattered active/conspicuous ones (but few to no "everywhere" 37s and such today, I noticed, excepting maybe a couple more offhand-figure-type mentions in the book and other reading material, and, interestingly, I remember at least two being 22s, as I've been seeing lately). Thought-wise, it was also like yesterday, largely silent but for a couple standouts and several brief periods of that super-super-subtle, all-inclusive-type of background static activity. Standouts/examples I got down:

> Two classical traffic incidents, first another of those "random speeding car coming up behind me and forcing me to turn off and let them pass and thus gain my attention, only to reveal its 37-plate upon passing," this time on the highway, a 731-plate car coming up really fast and semi-tailgating me until I changed lanes (and, interestingly and patternistically of some of these, once I finally stopped at an intersection later on and got a chance to write a note about this incident, I found myself directly behind that exact same car, its plate "staring" at me, just like many other times, ha ha). The second happened on the way home, also on the highway, another classical "conspicuously/dangerously slow-moving car forcing me to get close enough for its 37-plate to resolve," this time a 337-plate SUV going probably 10 miles under the speed limit, and with other cars in the next lane over, such that I had to slow down and get near the SUV and thus come face-to-face with its plate rather than just turning and overtaking it, ha ha.

> Good example of those "fast, fleeting, striking, and quiet"-type of super-subtle background static echoes: it happened in the department store when I randomly/obliquely thought of how the cashier at the coffee shop had said "That's okay" when I told her I didn't have a loyalty card -- precisely as, from across the store, someone dramatically/loudly/conspicuously cried out "Okay!," another that wasn't quite perfectly synchronstic but was still just a split second apart from my thought, such that it was still crossing my mind as I heard the shout.

> Another good example of these echoes, a passing-sign/radio-type one on the way home, when I passed this random sign for "Eagles Sportswear" and conspicuously Noticed the "Eagles" portion, as to make it stand out in that patternistic and conspicuous yet fully illogical and baseless way -- precisely as the radio scanned to the station 92.9, "the Eagle," after I'd just pressed the scan button immediately before encountering the sign, ha ha.

> Among the handful of passive/low-key parking-lot 37-plates today, had a single active one that I remember, another of those classical "drawn to a particular parking space due to completely objective/traceable circumstances, only to find myself directly beside a previously invisible 37-plate car"-type ones, this time at the market when I saw a shopping cart left flagrantly/dangerously right in the middle of a parking space and was Compelled to park there and then return the cart -- this happening a split second before I got closer and thus came into view of the car parked just beside it, with its 379-plate "staring" directly at me as it was "revealed" from behind the previously obscuring car I'd cleared

> Also saw another little cluster of those same, somewhat rare "random, non-repeat number being echoed in a subtle but patternistic/repeating way"-type incidents, on the way home, this time with the number 9, where, at least 3 times but I want to say 4 or more (in any case, enough times and all identical in nature/behavior for me to note them as patternistic/notable), I saw some random 9, maybe on a license plate or a passing sign or whatever, at the precisely instant the radio randomly said "9," this too coming in various contexts and stuff but also the same basic underlying, "intertwined" echo of the number 9

Had some "late" activity tonight, a little cluster of a handful of super-subtle reading-type echoes during dinnertime reading, all of the exact same pattern/feel/behavior of those I've been seeing lately. Did actually have two standout-level ones, both classical "having some random, distinct, objective thought while taking a break from the book, then resuming reading in a way that echoed that thought exactly," and though these were in that same fuzzy/indirect fashion as most echoes lately, the correlation and pattern and timing were very distinct, "upgraded" from the usual lot of super-subtles, for all their subjective/too-complex-to-describe nature.

7/9/18

Morning was totally silent, with the exception of a brief little cluster of reading echoes during after-chore reading, about three or four within the span of a couple minutes, arriving after a total silence and then lapsing as fast right back into it. Best example: a classical "having a random, objective thought, then turning the magazine to a new leaf/previously invisible page and having it echo that thought exactly," this time beginning when I randomly thought about giving up the latest supplement regime/sickness-fighting regimen due to the side effects and toxicity and the like, then subsequently thinking of how I wasn't going to give up so easily, I was going to stick it out as long as I can this time, that it's basically unquestioned at this point -- and then, less than a second later when I turned the page, there was a great big, conspicuous quote dominating the page, smack in the middle, "I have it in my head that quitting just isn't an option," ha ha.

Also, a standoutish "longwinded/multi-day thematic"-type one as I've seen here and there before, this time involving the specific theme of "being candid/real/unfiltered on social media," along with the general sentiment of truth and appearances and social posturing, etc, that would accompany such. It started a few days ago with a super-random Compelled trash-find magazine, in which the theme of it was about being "real" on social media and the like -- and then, in an equally super-random freebie magazine I started reading yesterday, it was themed exactly the same, despite being a totally different magazine/subject matter/year and date/audience, and neither of them advertising this on the cover or any other logical correlation. And then, this was also the exact, specific, book-spanning theme of the 'Circle' book I'd begun reading at approximately the exact same time I read that first magazine, and just finished today, as to just have this overarcing, thematic sentimental air of "real/fake social media" threading through my last few days, in the same basic manner of the "everyday little thing" parallels/recurrences.

The drive to lunch and lunchtime reading both were fully silent today, with I think maybe the slightest little scatterings of super-subtle activity here and there through lunch, but so few and low-key that I honestly can't say they weren't just coincidence or in my head, etc.

Afternoon did see some mild-to-moderate activity, and this very much in the same pattern of late (though no super-subtle "inclusive" background static today, I noticed, just scattered "normal" incidents -- which seemed to correspond with less of that particularly nasty and compromising/distorting headsickness, as it were). First I saw were another of those sudden, reasonable notable, but brief clusters of low-key 37-plates in traffic and parking lots immediately after lunch, lasting only minutes before shifting back into just scattered plates or silence, as has happened before. Most standoutish of this time period were a handful of those quiet-but-active classical traffic types, such as cars pulling out/turning at *just the right* angle and time and other logistics so that its 37-plate would "flash" conspicuously/patternistically in the exact space I was absently looking at.

Noticed only a handful of "everywhere" 37s and minority repeats today, again just enough to be there but far from the abundance of many other days. Best example: when I got the package and, right on top, the label was ripped off *just so* that the 2317 in a big string of numbers of left intact, the rest of it taken off, in quietly conspicuous fashion, as is the case with so many of these, easily dismissible on their own but always following this same pattern more or less.

Had a few more of those "random, non-repeat number"-involving incidents too, just like those from yesterday, the exact same pattern/feel/behavior. Of the handful, all but one were too subtle to convey specifically, but the other was a pretty cool standout. It started when I made to turn off the radio in the car, but then decided I liked the music and left it on, but not before I absently noticed that the station was "102.7," thus causing me to absently register those three numbers specifically, and then, a split second later when I looked up, I realized I was stopped behind a car with a 271-ending plate, as to vaguely-but-patternistically echo the "127" in my head (I've come to automatically omit 0s, as it were). At that point it only "felt" like a synchronicity, subjectively, and I didn't really note it, and I actually had the absent thought of, "I'd only note that if there was something more objectively notable about it" -- and no sooner had that thought crossed my mind, also patternistic of so many of these, than a truck, previously invisible behind the 271-car in front of me, spontaneously pulled up and turned right, thus dramatically/animatedly "revealing" its 271-ending plate, as to be both a third, instant echo of the numbers as well as a patternistic "answer" to my thought, ha ha.

Thought-wise: another of those days that were totally silent save for a few brief clusters and single echoes and the like, a couple of them with that super-subtle "inclusive"-type activity, none of them lasting more than a couple minutes. Couple standouts/examples I got:

> Best/"biggest" of the day was another of those combo thought/number incidents, beginning with a very notable radio/thought/feeling echo when I got into the car after being outside in the heat and letting it idle with the A/C on, and upon getting hit with the drastically colder, contrasting air upon getting inside, I had the automatic/absent/registering thought of something like "Wow that's cold/I'm so suddenly cold" -- precisely as the very first words to come over the radio as I got in were "I feel so cold," another classical echo. And then, seconds later when I got back out, I was immediately "greeted" with another of those "staring"/quietly conspicuous 37-plates, a 3701 on a truck directly across from me, and this coming so close that it again had that "one-two"/clustered effect. And then, seconds later and also soon enough to maintain the "clustery" feel, another parked 37-plate, a 3171 also "staring" from a quietly conspicuously parked car, ha ha.

> Had a sudden cluster at the chiropractor's office, probably 5-6 of varying degrees of notability, and all of that exact same super-subtle/fuzzy/indirect nature/behavior, and again pretty notable collectively given how they all came within a short timeframe and followed the same pattern and followed a total silence otherwise. Example of the super-subtle/fuzziest/most-indirect kind: a reading/radio one, when I randomly came to a passage in a magazine article about "keeping xxx alive," precisely as the song "Stayin' Alive" started on the radio, not the lyrics themselves but just the song, which I instantly recognized, such that it could've been either an echo of the song as a whole/its title or my automatic/registering thought of "'Stayin' Alive' on the radio" upon hearing it, or both, who knows. Example of the more-coherents: when the lady sitting next to me in the massage room said into her phone, "I'm in the doctor's office," perfectly synchronistic with the overhead radio randomly saying "Doctor, doctor," and again pretty easy to dismiss on its own but fitting perfectly the others in this timeframe in pattern/feel.

7/10/18

Morning was totally silent even of super-subtles, etc. The drive to lunch, however, saw a sudden, probably dozen-strong cluster of semi-conspicuous low-key 37-plates in traffic, not quite with any singularly notable/standout-quality ones but still some of those more-active-leaning kind, including some classical "cars turning/pulling up at the perfect time/angle/other logistics to 'flash' a 37-plate directly where I was looking"-type ones. Ultimately ended up pretty surreal, in that "quiet" fashion.

Lunchtime reading was at first totally silent still, but by the end of the meal some super-super-subtle activity did start up, with the best/most-coherent of it being only some scattered "everyday little thing" parallels and recurrences extending from morning and the like, with only some "so small and subtle and fleeting and fuzzy/indirect that I could barely detect them myself"-type of reading echoes and such.

One decent, semi-coherent example: in the super-random book I started reading at lunch today, it randomly mentioned, in that low-key/offhand/byplay manner in which so many of these parallels occur, how we live in a culture that constantly craves sugary treats and eats them recklessly/with abandon, specifically "brownies," which, also patternistically, I noticed this one distinctly in the list of several, and even thought of it randomly but distinctly a couple times after, still following the pattern. And then over the course of the afternoon, I encountered two partially eaten brownies discarded in a couple of separate, different parking lots, when, first, I can't remember when, if ever, I've come across specifically a brownie tossed out/thrown away on the ground like that, and then, second, these not only echoed the general "brownie-eating" sentiment, but also the negative context/connations it was presented with in the book, since it was describing how unhealthy such foods are and how so recklessly/heedlessly eating them is symptomatic of the present sick cultural condition/psychology, all of which vaguely but definitely jibed with how I'd found the brownies tossed out as litter in parking lots where they'd be walked in/not only wasted but left to rot with no effort to even put them in the trash, etc. And again, so easy to dismiss on its own, but explicitly, 100% in line with the distinct pattern of the dozens of other such incidents of late.

As for the rest of the afternoon, it was largely quiet, with periods of silence as well. The 37-plates in traffic did keep up, more or less, and even at their lowest ebb still disproportionately more active than thought-type incidents, which today were very very low, with only a couple brief and scattered little clusters of only super-subtle activity (and this again correlating explicitly with another spell of mentally deadening headsickness and the like that characterized the day). Did two standouts amid it all, these both of that "sudden and singular and far more coherent than most other activity of the day":

> One was a fully, explicitly classical "being conspicuously alerted/attention drawn to a car while traversing a parking lot, only to have it draw my attention to its 37-plate," this time a car that beeped precisely as I exited the store and stepped from the curb, perhaps from its alarm/locks being set, thus instantly demanding my attention, only to be "smacked" with its 738-plate, and this also coming in that "immediately after leaving a store" pattern that I've been seeing so much of lately.

> The other was the day's lone, highly notable thought/perceptual echo. It happened as a work truck pulling a long two-wheel trailer pulled out in front of me, first demanding my attention since I had to slow down for it, etc, and then, precisely as the truck completed its turn-out and its trailer hit a pothole, thus causing it to bounce conspicuously and thus causing me to absently/automatically register this with a thought of something like "bouncing," the ad on the radio randomly said "bouncing houses," and again such that the "bouncing" and my instantaneous, heat-of-the-moment thought coincided in that perfect, intertwined fashion, also 100% patternistic of these.

7/11/18

Big uptick today, and more general kinds of incidents, though all still in the same basic underlying pattern/behavior/feel of this latest "chapter" of the phenomenon.

Morning was totally silent again, and also again followed by a slight and scattered but definitely "there" series of low-key 37-plates in traffic on the way to the appointment. Then, just after leaving there later on, had another of those "first plates encountered after being a semi-conspicuous 37," this time not immediately after leaving, but a minute or so down the road when I came to the first intersection, where a 37-plate car was at the end of the line of traffic waiting there, as to "greet" me/its plate "staring" at me in that patternistic way.

Next, about 10-15 minutes later on the drive to lunch, had a really cool standout. It happened while stopped at an intersection, when, after seeing more low-key traffic plates, I watched as a truck pulled up alongside me such that its 236 plate "arrived" directly/patternistically into my line of sight, thus causing me to absently think, also patternistically, something like "Well, that felt/behaved like a traffic-type incident, so why wasn't that a 237 plate?" -- and then, precisely as this thought occurred/patternistically, a second truck pulled up, also such that its plate arrived/"invaded" the exact space I was looking at then, this one with a 307-plate, not only notable and 100% patternistic in its own right, but also such in that "challenge-thought"/"question-and-answer" fashion. And just damn surreal too.

Went on to have a relatively high amount of traffic-plate 37s throughout the day, resuming with the scattered low-key plates just after lunch and then lasting pretty much through the rest of the afternoon's driving in a quiet plateau as has been common recently. Not many (if any, if I remember right) parking-lot plates today, oddly. Had a moderate amount of "everywhere" 37s today too, these too eventually plateauing into a semi-constant background static for the most part. Had many semi-conspicuous/"active"-type ones by mid-afternoon, and actually even got to that point of being collectively so many that I couldn't keep track. Few standouts I got down:

> A cool combo, and a good example of the many which occur quietly/passively during the background-static periods. It started when I stopped at an intersection and was "hit" with a quietly conspicuous/"staring" 732-plate on a car parked *just so* that its plate would be quietly conspicuous, patternistically. And then, as I sat waiting at the intersection, I noticed that, in a parking lot directly across the street from the 732-plate car, was a dumpster with a big "373" stenciled on the side, and placed such that it was visible in the scene just above the car's plate, ha ha.

> A few examples of the many more-active, classical standoutish traffic plates: another "having attention drawn to a random car in traffic, only to have it reveal its 37-plate after," this time a car drifting up alongside me slowly on the highway, thus causing me to slow and let it pass, only to have it "smack" me with its 317-plate as it did so; yet another of those "slowly creeping up/gaining on a over miles and miles of highway, only to get close enough for its 37-plate to resolve just before turning off or something," this time a 376-plate SUV I followed distantly all the way along the highway drive home, only to catch up to it once it slowed to turn off on the same turn I was taking, with my getting *just close enough,* for *just long enough,* for its plate to resolve; a classical "going to a super-random, unplanned stop, only to be greeted with a conspicuous 37-plate upon arrival," this time a 7333-plate truck with a patternistically/logistically perfect *staring* plate when I pulled into the thrift store parking lot (when I'd actually planned, first, to stop a store down the beach, and then, not finding one there, planned to stop at another, different one on the way home, only to, at the last moment, be Compelled to turn off and stop at this one ...).

Lunchtime reading was another day with one of those patternistic "one single, isolated kind of activity at the exclusion of others"-type periods, this time with a moderate amount of "little thing" subtle/fuzzy recurrences/parallels, extending mainly from the morning's experiences and reading material. They were again pretty much too subtle/complicated/subjective/fuzzy/indirect to be conveyed to any real degree, but there were a couple coherent-ish examples, such as reading in the diet book about how you should "drink green tea morning and afternoon," when I Just Happened to have had matcha green tea this morning and then in my lunch, which was not only infrequent of me, but also was another of those "recurrence of a recurrence"-type incidents, since I've had several others exactly the same involving an identically subtle echo of green tea mentions on a day when I randomly happened to have tried some matcha again. Or, a bit more notably: this morning when I'd randomly browsed through the Kurig teas and coffees at the clinic, despite having zero intention of actually having any, and Noticing one in particular, a "Sleepy Time" herbal tea, the first I've encountered such in probably months or longer -- and then, in the book at lunch, it super-randomly/offhand mentioned this exact tea, and of course for the first time in the book, Just Happening to coincide hours after the first encounter as is 100% patternistic of these ...

Towards the end of lunch, started to have a few super-super-subtle-type of those same extremely fuzzy and indirect/fleeting echoes as I've been having, and then, just before I was done, had a cool standout. It started when I randomly came to "two to two" in the book, and Noticed this in particular, patternistically and illogically and subtly but distinctly -- a split second before a man sitting nearby randomly said, "two point two," another of those with a slight delay but less than a second, just long enough for me to distinctly Notice the "two to two" and register it, then get "smacked" with the man's reasonably precise echo of the "two twos" underlying sentiment (which also jibes with the general uptick of 22s I've still been seeing off and on the last couple weeks or so, which would continue on today here and there as well).

From there, afternoon went on to see another of those same, now-patternistic on again, off again/periodic clusters of super-subtle echoes and parallels and recurrences (no thematics today, I noticed) plus a few standouts intermixed, and these ultimately also reached that saturation point of overwhelming my memory/attention by the day's end, just like numbers, and both of these for the first time in several days or so. Standouts/examples I got down:

> Good example of the super-subtle/fuzzy/individually dismissible echoes: just after lunch, when I was about to back from the parking lot, a woman came out of the door directly in front of me, thus causing me to register her with a patternistically absent/automatic thought of "a woman there" -- perfectly synchronistic with the radio randomly/singularly singing out "what a lady," with the "a lady" coinciding perfectly both with the woman's sudden appearance and my instantaneous registering thought of her. Many like this time, most subtler/more subjective but all of course following the same pattern.

> Another standoutish example of these. It started when I thought about going to the gym since I was in that part of town, then checked the time and decided against it since it was too soon after lunch, thus causing me to distinctly think "I need to rest before working out" -- perfectly synchronistic with the radio randomly/singularly saying "rest," intertwined, etc

> Another example of these, but also somewhat more coherent and with an additional, combo-type dimension. It started as another "little thing" recurrence, at the market, when I randomly encountered a container of honey butter, for the first time that I can remember for a long time if ever, etc, when, just this morning at the clinic in a super-random magazine I'd read for just seconds, it had mentioned how you can mix butter with honey and spread it on bread, which I'd again patternistically Noticed distinctly as to thing "honey butter" and have it stick with me as so many of these do. But then, as I saw it in the market and registered the recurrence, it caused me to think of another, almost identical one I'd had recently, where I'd read the random article about the Carvell cakes and so distinctly-but-illogically Noticed it, only to super-randomly encounter such a cake later that day -- just before I stepped past the honey butter display and came directly into contact with a cold case with a Carvell cake sitting directly in front and directly in my line of sight as I cleared the butter display, as to again echo either the thought of the Carvell incident or the incident itself or both, absolutely damn surreal.

7/12/18

A totally silent, totally headsick morning, followed by some slight but notable activity at lunch, mostly super-super-subtle-type stuff, that pretty much inclusive background static of slight reading echoes and some parallels and recurrences, though cohering slightly towards the end of the meal. Few standouts and examples:

> Had one of those instant, "immediately upon sitting down to read/eat and having an echo on the very first page"-type ones as I haven't had in some time it seems. It happened when I started the 'Desert' book that I'd bought super-randomly at the library yesterday, when I flipped past the publication-info pages and then stopped and read the first page of the actual text, the acknowledgements, which said something like "To my brother and sister and father" or something, listing family members, thus causing me to absently register it with a thought of something like "family members" rather than their actual names -- precisely as "family" sang randomly and conspicuously/emphatically from the market's overhead radio, another of those very and one-word but highly "striking"/intertwined-types.

> A little later, had another of those now-patternistic "involved conversation from two nearby strangers resulting in a succession of perfectly synchronistic one-word reading echoes," these again all common, singular words but each one a dead-on, intertwined hit, and all of course 100% objective, the two men totally disengaged from me and out of sight of my book and the like anyhow, probably 3-4 only but still enough to be notable and surreal all the same

> Had a few of those now-patternistic "morning crossword" word recurrences too, several of them very vague and indirect but patternistic, along with one semi-standout one, "about face," which first occurred during the crossword, for the first I'd encountered it/thought of it in some time, as to again make me absently but distinctly notice it as I do so many of these, and then it recurred not only once, just after during after-chore reading in the day's super-random freebie magazine, but then in the book at lunch today too.

> Had several of those "non-specific noises corresponding with reading of a random noise in the book"-type ones here and there, followed by a slightly more notable "exact noise"-type one towards the end of the meal, and with a cool twist too. It started when I came to "the rattle 2003" in the book and had the absent "challenge"-type thought of, "Well, why didn't hear a sound when I read that one?" -- and then, a split second after in "slight delay" fashion, a singular/random bottle rattled from somewhere across the market, not only an exact "rattle"-type noise but in that exact same "challenge-thought/answer" fashion, as to just make it that much more notable.

> And then, a similar plain echo just after, when I came to "the day" in the book precisely as some random, unseen person from somewhere in the market called out conspicuously/loudly "the day"

As for the rest of the day, thought-type activity again ceased as if on a switch immediately after lunch, without so much as some super-subtles afterward. Did have 37s in traffic plates (but again few to no parking-lots, if I remember right, just like yesterday -- why?), but only a few, and about all of them coming in another of those now-patternistic "biggish cluster just after lunch, followed by a big drop-off soon after"-type of clusters, pretty much keeping with the reflectively quiet/subdued tone of the day. Few standouts I got down:

> At the market at lunch, had, first, a sort of delayed "greeter"-type one, right as I was getting out of the car to go inside, when, at the last possible second, a car approached from my left, forcing me to wait for it to pass, which thus caused me to get "flashed" by its 37-plate as it did so, the first of the day. And then, a nearly identical one happened just *after* lunch, when I'd gone back to the car and put my bag inside before walking over to the other place in the plaza, when, just as I put away my bag and began to close the door, a car passed by from the left again and "flashed" its 773-plate identically, and this one with that physically logistically perfect element, where I was *just able* to see the plate through the windshield, at *just the angle* I was standing at, and *just before* I backed off and closed the door and began walking off. And then, immediately after that: I was suddenly Compelled to walk a different, patternistically illogical/inconvenient/awkward route to where I was going, and upon doing so, sure enough, it "led" me directly into contact with a 370-plate car, which was also in that quietly conspicuous "staring plate" configuration, ha ha.

> Next up, another, similar cluster after leaving the appointment about an hour later, when I had I think 3-4 semi-conspicuous "flashed"/"arrived directly in my line of sight"-type of 37-plates as I got back on the road, followed by another "climactic" sort of "finisher" when I parked at that super-random car place to get the oil changed and, upon getting out, found myself directly beside a truck with a trailer, which I thought was parked but then it moved slightly as I got out, thus demanding my attention in that patternistic way, and thus causing me to stop and look at it and see its 62317-plate, ha ha.

> Another classical "car coming to a sudden turn on a fast road, forcing me to slow down and take notice of it, only to have it 'flash' its 37-plate as it turned," and this one with that logistically perfectly timed/*just visible for a split second*-type of quality, just so surreal ...

> Also, a "passing random roadside sign clicking to a 37-variant number"-type one, though this one with that same slight delay seen in some echoes, where an electronic bank sign reading "3:17 PM" emerged from behind a stand of trees just as I passed, and then, probably 1-1.5 seconds after, ticked to 3:18 -- still patternistic enough to be notable, but that delay just always seems so odd, ha ha

Had a handful of semi-conspicuous "everywhere" 37s today too, again just enough to be "present." One I remember: when I scrolled down a random webpage and thus came to a random sidebar ad dominated with a big "$7.13 COUPON" or something like that (7.13 *exactly,* despite the odd figure ...). Also, a receipt-type one, from the oil-change place, when my order # started with 37, printed in big bold type at the top, followed by the total at $37.89, this printed twice.

7/13/18

Today saw an uptick of parallels/recurrences/"little thing"-type activity, after a noticeable lull/deficiency of these the last couple days. It started with a single, reasonably notable and coherent standout during after-chore reading, beginning yesterday when I read in the 'Desert' book about hops fields and alfalfa fields, both of which was the first I'd ever really learned of/thought of these plants being farmed as crops, as obvious/logical as it was, just another of those things that I'd never specifically, consciously thought of specifically/conceptualized until reading of them in the book, as is the case with so many of these "learning/conceptualizing a new-but-common thing" originating thoughts -- and then this morning, during after-chore reading in that super-random National Geographic I pulled out of the recycling bin a couple days ago and then was Compelled to begin reading last night, I came to an article about Latinos in America, in which it mentioned, offhand, a town in Idaho that farms hops and alfalfa predominantly, ha ha.

And then at lunch, an even more notable one. This one started, rather than ended, with that same magazine and that same article about the American Latinos, in which it talked about a man who, first, had become a city council member at notably young age (19), and then, second, was a minority at that (Latino), and then, third, the article also mentioned offhand how the man wanted to be president someday. Then, at lunch in the book, I came to a chapter that introduced a character that was a minority (black) who'd become a city council member at a notably young age (23) and had aspirations of becoming president someday, and was even in a club called The Future Presidents of America or something like that -- all totally objective, totally random and unconnected and unadvertised/impossible that I'd previously been cued or subconsciously informed of these things, etc, etc.

And another, reasonably notable and coherent recurrence, at lunch, beginning when I randomly held the door for a woman coming into the coffee shop when I was, whom I absently-but-distinctly noticed was overweight, young, and had braces. Then, later on, the same woman came and sat next to me on the patio, such that I noticed her again, as to cement her in my mind, especially her traits of "overweight, younger, braces" -- and then, maybe 10 minutes later in the 'Desert' book, it randomly introduced another new character, a young overweight woman with braces -- not specific beyond that, but notable considering, first, the tight timing and super-random nature of it all, but also the patternistic element, which is the case with so many of these, having some random event/encounter/thing stick out to me absently and illogically but distinctly before recurring.

And another somewhat notable detail of the day's parallel-type activity: there were only scattered, singular, more-coherent recurrences, rather than that running background static of many subtler, less-coherent ones (and, interestingly, all of this seeming to reflect my much clearer/less-headsick state of mind today).

Lunchtime reading saw two other standouts, both of them resumed-reading-type echoes (and, if I remember right, these were the only other incidents during lunch period, here also without any subtler activity mixed in -- a definite trend/newish sort of underlying pattern, it seems):

> The first one started with another fully objective, random, externally-induced event, when the ripped knee of my jeans caught uncomfortably on my knee when I bent it, thus causing me to interrupt my reading and conspicuously kick my leg out to resituate my pants leg -- and then, as I simultaneously raised my book up while kicking out my leg, the very first words of the text to fall under my eyes, again in that automatic, super-random, "no time to even subconsciously seek out any specific word"-type fashion, were "legs out," thus echoing perfectly my leg kicking out, singular of course but the underlying sentiment was certainly there, and again with that ridiculously surreal, intertwined timing.

> And then, probably two minutes later and identical in nature/feel/other mechanics and behavior, a second resumed-reading, when I raised the book up and the first word to fall under my eyes was "love," at the precise instant a woman at a nearby table said into her phone, "Love ya'," again with the "love" portion of it coinciding perfectly/intertwined with my registering the word in the book.

From there, the day sort of shifted back to the same basic format I've been seeing lately, with all thought-type activity ceasing, to be replaced by traffic-plate 37s as has been the MO lately (and, interestingly: I had a resurgence of yesterday's headsickness and the like just after eating, such that the yesterday version of synchronistic activity seems to return with my brief return to yesterday's health/consciousness state, 100% in line with this "reflective" aspect of the phenomenon). Didn't see too much number activity today, much like yesterday, just another of those brief-but-moderately-intense "immediately after lunch" clusters of low-key 37-plates after a total silence, followed by a handful of more-coherent/standoutish ones scattered through the rest of the afternoon. Standouts:

> Another of those "immediately upon getting back on the road 37-plates," before I'd even left the coffee shop parking lot, when I got behind a truck waiting to turn, with a 376-plate, sitting directly/quietly conspicuously in my line of sight as I sat behind it, and this too the very first plate I'd encountered upon driving, as well.

> Another "randomly parking in a lot, only to have a semi-conspicuous, previously invisible 37-plate 'staring' directly at me as I finished parking, 'greeter'-style," this time at the market on the way home, and again where the plate was not just only visible to me once I'd turned fully into the space, but this one was "revealed" from behind the parked car that had been obscuring it, in "animated" fashion.

> A cool, loose little cluster at the other market, mid-afternoon, beginning when I went to throw away the littered I'd accumulated on the way in and, upon absently looking into the bin, a bag in there had caught my eye and I'd been illogically and patternistically Compelled to take it out and look inside, in which the first thing I saw was a receipt, and, subsequently, the exposed portion of it read "7/13/18" with "7:30 PM" directly below it. And then, in the checkout, two much more notable ones, "cashier randomly quoting a 37-figure when I was in earshot"-type ones: first, when the customer two up ahead of me was quoted "$3.71," and then, immediately after, when the next in line was quoted "$13.37." And also a notable contextual detail: I'd been offered the chance to skip the line when another checkout opened, but I'd declined and let the folks behind me go instead, thus causing me to stay in that line and Just Happen to be present/within earshot of the two 37-quotes ...

7/14/18

A quiet day overall, something of a downturn from yesterday but still in the same basic vein of type/feel/pattern.

Morning was totally silent from what I remember, and the drive to lunch too, and again corresponding with a similarly "silent"/mentally dead/headsick state.

Lunchtime reading: did see some activity, and it was another of those "almost exclusively super-subtle"-type periods I've had before, where I could sense the phenomenon's onset and felt to be in the "synchronistic state," but only right at threshold levels, with just the barest, slightest, subtlest little fleeting one-word reading echoes and the like, of that exact same "so subtle I could easily miss it myself unless I observed so many within the same timeframe and could identify their pattern/behavior/feel," etc. These lastest through the first half of lunch, and then climaxed right around that time, with a moderately noteable standout one:

It was a classical resumed-reading/"random objective thought being echoed by first words to fall automatically/involuntarily under my eyes when resuming book after taking a brea"-type echo, and exactly the same in feel/circumstances/underlying behavior as those two yesterday, it bears mentioning. Today it started when I'd interrupted my reading to get up and walk to the nearby patch of shrubs to spit, which sent me out into the ridiculously hot sun, such that when I returned to under the table's umbrella on the patio and thus the shade, I involuntarily/automatically registered it with another of those patternistically absent thoughts of something like "back under the umbrella in cool shade" -- and then, once again as this thought was crossing my mind in that infinitestimal window of time that these things unfold, I resumed the book and the very first words to "hit" me were "umbrella-covered," ha ha. And a neat little footnote to this one: right as this happened, I noticed that the song "Shelter from the Storm" was playing on the overhead radio, which was really low and inaudible to me when I'd walked off, and only became audible again once I'd gone back under the umbrella and had that thought, etc -- only a vague echo of the "shelter/under the umbrella/shaded from sun" sentiment, and possibly just coincidence, but it didn't "feel" that way, and, also, it actually fit pretty well with that now-patternistic "longwinded super-subtle and vague thematics coming over radio songs and the like"-type of incident I've seen several times now.

From there, did have a few more of those same extremely subtle/fuzzy/indirect and/or delayed-type of echoes and the like as I'd been seeing prior to the "umbrella" one, and still only a scattered few here and there, before they again ceased completely immediately upon my finishing the meal. The best example of these: It started after I'd gone inside for the A/C, when the little boy sitting next to me on the bench seat with his mother suddenly and conspicuously slid down the seat and began to stand, which I absently but distinctly registered with an automatic thought of something like "sliding boy/scooching boy" -- precisely as I came to this sentence in the book, "I was one of the students -- three boys and two girls -- to scoot out the back of the van," which echoed the basic sentiment of "boy scooting from seat," in the same context of movement and such, and in a vague, "scattered"/"piecemeal" sort of way, though this really just made it more notable in the sense that this sort of behavior/mechanic was the exact same featured predominantly in the others' "fuzzy"/indirect correlation and precision.

The only other thought-type activity of the day came in the form of more of those extremely subtle/loose/indirect/easily missed echoes and recurrences and thematics and the like, scattered here and there through the rest of the day, sort of an even subtler version of that "super-subtle inclusive background static"-type activity I've been seeing to some degree regularly for weeks now. Once again, 99.9% of these were just far too subtle and subjective and complicated and "in the moment" to be conveyed, but they were no less present or notable for it all. Did have one standout, more-coherent example that retained the same basic behavior of these, as to illustrate it pretty well:

It was a classical "page-turn"/"objective thought echoed a split second later on a previously invisible turned-to magazine page"-type one, this one starting when I had this big long random chain of thought that ended with what I might have for lunch tomorrow, thus causing me to think that I had to have that sweet potato I'd pureed for lunch due to it needing refrigeration and my having to travel tomorrow afternoon, etc, thus causing me to automatically/absently/patternistically visualize the puree in its jar, which, when I'd poured it in that morning, had sort of mounded up into a taper rather than filling the jar from side to side, due to its richness and creaminess, and also I remembered absently how brightly orange it was, coming from that particularly orange breed of potato -- and then, once again at the precise instant that this visualization unfolded in my mind and "crossed" my mind, I turned the page and was immediately struck by a big, detailed picture of a Halloween cupcake with bright-orange icing -- the *exact* same, specific, conspicuous shade of orange that my potato puree had shown in my mind, and, even more incredible, it was *mounded up atop the cupcake,* in the exact same tapered/pyramid shape that the puree had formed in the jar. And, yet again, the page had been 100% invisible to me when I'd had this thought, and with nothing foreshadowing it on the previous page/nothing even about sweet potatoes or puree or any possible subconscious cue however slight or subtle, just a perfect-yet-100%-random/object and perfectly synchronistic/intertwined echo of my exact thought more or less.

Numbers: these were equally few, low-key, and "quiet," in the seemingly rare day where both thought- and number-type phenomena was proportionately similar, both in volume and feel/"amplitude"/"intensity," etc. All numbers were 37-plates in traffic and a few in parking lots, if I remember right, probably less than a dozen total spread out over several hours, and with maybe two or three slightly more coherent/notable "active" ones here and there, before going totally silent by the time I headed home. Did have one classical, coherent standout amidst it all: another of those "having attention drawn conspicuously/patternistically to a specific car while crossing a parking lot, thus demanding that I look at it and thus discover its 37-plate when I probably wouldn't have seen it otherwise," this time the one lone running car in a big long line, which I heard only as I cleared the car directly beside it and came directly upon it, thus causing me to startle slightly and then stop in my tracks and take a step back so that I wouldn't be standing in front of a running car that might be about to shoot forward -- thus causing me to look down and see its front-mounted 7306-plate.

7/15-16/18

These two days are essentially one great big super-cluster/”meta-incident,” comprised of an enormous, sprawling, record-setting series of a whole bunch of all-inclusive super-subtle activity, probably the biggest and longest running and just damn weirdest/most collectively surreal that I've ever seen.

Morning of the 15th was totally silent except for a single “greeter” 37-plate upon my arrival at church, which fits a pattern I've seen several times now, where morning with be absolutely silent due to bad headsickness or whatever, and then, after a big long struggle/rigmarole through the morning and then driving to the first stop of the day (usually a health appointment or something of that nature), I'll be greeted by a patternistic 37-plate either upon arrival or leaving. This one was at church was on arrival, and it was another that, besides being patternistically notable from the get-go, was even moreso contextually/circumstantially, due to yet another “Compelled against all reason and habit to park in a certain space, only to thus bring about a 37-plate greeting,” this time when I was Compelled to park at the front, side lot at the church, despite always having parked in the back lot every past time I've been there – only to be greeted by a 237-plate on the parked car directly across from that specific space, and again not only invisible until only after I'd pulled in, but with it emerging, “animated”/”revealing”-style, from behind the shrub that had been obscuring it, as if saying “Peekaboo,” ha ha.

Church was silent still for the most part, though I did notice some more of those little “false-start stutters,” where I sensed the beginnings of activity but it never went anywhere. Then, finally, at lunch, the super-cluster began, with yet another of those patternistic “nearby strangers' conversation having a high number of subtle, perfectly timed/or delayed/loose/fuzzy one-word echoes,” at the coffee shop when some women sitting right in front of me talking amongst themselves and “hitting” super-random words I came across patternistically in the book, one saying “obsessed” about a half second before I came to “obsessed” in the book, and then, fuzzy-style, one saying “frozen” just before I came to “freeze,” and then, another half second or so later, I came to “frozen,” and this sort of echoed the automatic absent thought I'd had after the “frozen”/”freeze” one, of something like “Why was that echo a fuzzy-style 'freeze' instead of a direct/clear 'frozen,'” such that the book's “frozen,” just after, seemed to again patternistically echo my immediate, reactionary absent thought with the underlying sentiment of “frozen,” which is a pattern/behavior I've observed in many of these super-subtle and loose-type of echoes, both before this and also in many of those to follow over the forthcoming two-day cluster.

And from there it was like a starting gun went off, with there being many more through lunch alone, again gradually increasing in number and cohering a little, until there were probably over a dozen at least just by the end of lunch, plus some various thematics and parallels/recurrences and even subtler kinds that I can't even remember, being overwhelmed just by the end of lunch on the 15th. If I remember right, there was only the slightest silence after lunch, coming in that patternistic “immediate cessation of activity upon finishing lunch, as if on a switch,” but then very soon resuming, especially once I got on the highway and began picking up speed, with another of those patternistic, reflective sort of “more intense activity corresponding with faster/longer movement/driving/distance,” and all of it again by and large semi-coherent and individually notable but just surpassing my ability to keep track of it, much less log it, and considerably so. A couple standoutish examples, instead, of the probably two or three dozen+ patternistically/behaviorally similar ones in this timeframe and later:

> Having a long, random, but fully objective and distinct chain of thought end with my thinking about the skin inflammation and that general hellish super-high/uncomfortable body-heat condition I was having particularly bad at the time, thus causing me to think about my dependence on air-conditioning despite my best efforts to tolerate the inflammation and react well, ending with a vague thought of something like “I'll just have to be dependant on air-conditioning until I can react better or something changes, as imperfect and unsustainable as that is” – just before “You need coolin'!” sang from the radio, and this coming in that loose, ~1-second-delay fashion but still close enough, and literally/non-contextually precise enough, not to matter

> Good example of the many, many, many “fast/fleeting/instantaneous/striking” one-word-type echoes I would experience all throughout this two-day cluster, often to times of just outright ridiculously surreal “living-dream” levels: another random, objective chain of thought, now about the two little packets of nuts I'd found in the trash at the coffee shop, and specifically about how there were some very-thin-sliced almonds in one packet, which I absently but distinctly visualized in particular – precisely as “thin” came randomly over the radio, again a common word and I think even out of context/a literal echo only, but so perfectly timed and patternistic of all the others in this time frame/collectively notable, it was impossible for me to dismiss as coincidence

At the same time, number-type activity was coming in, as well as undergoing the same, corresponding, proportionate gradual uptick/intensification of the thought-type activity, and with the same sort of underlying “fuzziness”/fleetingness/looseness of the thought-type stuff, which were both in turn reflective of the similarly “loose/fuzzy” mental state I was in due to intense sickness. From what I remember: another slow onset of low-key traffic 37-plate plates and a few in parking lots, eventually plateauing in a background static of these with varying abouts of more-coherent/standoutish/”active” classical-type ones interspersed, and again these running the gamut of the classicals: “reckless drivers demanding my attention only to reveal a 37-plate upon passing,” “turn-in-fronts flashing their plates with logistical perfection,” pretty much all of them I think.

And then, towards evening I think it was, the first of several “alignment”-style incidents began, after not seeing any for the last couple days or so I think (maybe longer), beginning with a very cool and standout three-way one, which I can't remember in total detail other than that it involved two (maybe three?) separate 37-plate vehicles of various kinds, all not only aligning perfectly between three lanes of traffic, but doing so beneath a bridge with a conspicuous-37-containing sign overhead of them of some matter (which, similarly, I only remember was not one of those less-conspicuous/subtler “17 ft 3 in clearance”-type signs or something similar, but instead something containing just a big, single “37” of some kind, as to be just that much more coherent and “loud”).

I want to say there were more, very similarly notable alignments on the 15th, but I can't remember exactly, just too much. I am sure of two that happened during highway driving on the 16th, however, during the latter portion of the cluster:

> Probably the “biggest,” most coherent and complex/standout alignement incident to date, surpassing even the bridge-one noted above, this time involving, first, three separate 37-plate cars again, but these were all more-conspicuous/active in themselves, but then went on to super-randomly align (despite this occurring at a hugely busy 6-lane convergence right at the state line with the amusement park and several on-off-ramps and stuff, cars just everywhere/incredibly dense and chaotic, yet these three random, separate cars managed to align their plates so perfectly and patternistically …), and all of this again happening beneath a big overhead sign for “EXIT 37,” and this time there was even an 1111-plate car tossed into the mix, as perfectly and “intelligently” and conspicuously, sort of like the cherry on top of a big ridiculously surreal living-dream sundae, just absolutely crazy, especially in the midst of the simultaneous thought-echo/thematic crush, just no words …

> The other one I remember, from maybe an hour or so after the “exit 37” one, was another three-way/”two cars and a sign”-type one, this time with two 37-plate cars aligning patternistically/perfectly with both themselves and their conjoined passing of an exit sign for highway 237, so ridiculously surreal, ha ha

Also on the 16th, number-wise, was another of those “first plate coming into contact immediately after lunch being a 37,” this time much like many others, when I got in the car and left the coffee shop parking lot (or, rather, the lot behind it, where I'd been Compelled to park despite there being spots at the shop's proper lot …) and, upon stopping at the curb, found a 730-plate on a parked car “staring” directly at me where I'd stopped, ha ha. And this was another of those patternistic “signaling the start of continued activity,” this time the resuming of the crush of traffic-plate/sign numbers from yesterday's highway driving, which would continue with nearly the exact same intensity/volume/coherence/underlying pattern and feel and nature and behavior as yesterday's, same as for the thought-type activity that resumed at the same time.

From there, the afternoon of the 16th followed that distinct sort of “uninterrupted seamless carryover” pattern I've seen several times lately, where it just picked up from yesterday's highway driving as if it had never stopped (and with this corresponding with my literally immediately returning to the highway, right from the coffee shop, with it being literally right by the on-ramp, about as “seamless” as you could get). Few standouts/examples/notes I got down this time (amidst the equally disorienting/overwhelming onslaught):

> Many many many of those ridiculously surreal, small, fleeting, perfectly timed “random thought/feeling/experience/event”-type echoes, for example: when I came across the sign for the Dos Amigos Mexican restaurant and registered it with an absent thought of “'amigo' is 'friend' in Spanish,” about a half-second before “a friend” came as singularly and randomly over the radio, and this, also like many others, coming just after other, subtler echoes, back-to-back (and then preceeding more of same, in this nearly constant little narrative of thought kinds of echoes and thematics and such at the time)

> Another more-coherent/standoutish example of these echoes: when I was in the little rainstorm and then suddenly came into a clearing and looked in the distance as was surprised to see blue sky in the distance and extending onward, made all the more conspicuous and notable due to its stark contast to the dark clouds directly overhead and the rain they were pouring down, thus causing me to absently/automaticaly/distinctly register it with a thought of something like “Wow, I see blue sky up there” – precisely as “blue skies smiling at me” sang singularly/randomly from the CD playing, and this another of those that echoed not only the general sentiment of “blue sky” but also the more-specific sentiment of the distant blue sky “smiling” at me, which is exactly what it felt to be doing when I saw it in the context of the contrasting rain/dark overhead immediate clouds, etc – SO DAMN SURREAL!!!

> One sort of little mini-trend/”texture” I noticed yesterday and today distinctly, throughout the collective cluster: several distinct, unique, patternistically/behaviorally/”feeling”-identical instances of deja vu, which had that distinct, well-known feel of classical deja vu, but these with something else, some subtle-but-pronounced, and indescribable, texture to them, what I might best describe as something like a super-subtle synchronistic echo crossed with classical deja vu (and maybe that's just what they were, instances of deja vu synchronistically “echoing” by whatever as-yet-unknown mechanism that these manifest by?)

> And another little mini-trend that was just prominent enough for me to identify through the onslaught of other activity: a newish sort of “instant/fleeting/fuzzy/loose” thought/event echo, a sort of more-coherent, multidimensional version of these, as opposed to the simpler, one-dimensional, one-word/thought-type variant, all very hard to describe but very apparent over this cluster. Best example was right before finishing the drive north on the evening of the 16th, beginning when I was coming upon that house where the old man had died and left behind his green Subaru car without anyone to deal with it, thus causing me to think of it and whether it was still there/if anyone had ever dealt with it – precisely as I rounded the last bend before the house and thus came into view of an identical Subaru, previously invisible until just that very precise instant I'd had the fully objective thought of “Buster's green Subaru.* But there's more to this, again in the circumstances/contextual details: mainly, this wasn't the man's Subaru, even though it was passing directly in front of his house, the one I'd been thinking of, which, as it were, still had the other, identical Subaru in front of it, such that, as I rounded the bend and saw the one on the road, it was passing the other one, in the driveway of the dead man's house, again with my Just Happening to arrive at that precise instant that the one identical-but-unrelated Subaru (same exact forest-green color/year/model – everything!) was passing the one I'd been thinking of. And, even more notable: this is, again, patternistically/behaviorally identical to probably a dozen or more other incidents I'd observed over the course of just these last two days alone. Again: utterly, damn, surreal …

Couple other random incidents I noted:

> First, another of those “Just Happening to wrap up a reading session on page #37 of a new book, all contingent fully on how long it took me to eat/take a break, etc” this time at dinnertime reading with the 'Dark Net' book

> Another of those “randomly encountering a random place I had traveled through/was about to travel though in an offhand mention in a super-random piece of reading material,” this time the town of Blowing Rock, NC, in that super-random library-freebie running magazine I'd picked up recently and Just Happened to read this morning, when I would Just Happen to be passing through there a couple hours later during the drive, after not seeing this little town mentioned in such a broad, national publication … ever?

Dinnertime reading too saw a slight resurgence of this same activity, a handful of parallels/thematics/”random thoughts being echoed by random reading”-type stuff, after a lull towards evening. Again there were standouts but I was just too burned out to get them down/even register some of them after the whirlwind day.

7/17/18

Today saw more of that exact same variety/feel kind of activity as the two-day cluster, but significantly less of it, another very quiet day today actually. Had only several brief clusters of the all-inclusive super-subtle-type of activity interspersed with periods of total silence, and all of these less coherent/one-dimensional/a lesser “order” of the gist of the two-day cluster, as to have no coherent standouts (but, again, what activity there was remained highly notable, if only subjectively, and even had some of that extremely profound and complex-type stuff, the kind that would take a book to convey even partially).

Numbers were there today, but exclusively after-lunch and not that many overall, just probably a dozen or so scattered, low-key, “passive” 37-plates in traffic and parking lots, plus about as many similarly passive “everywhere” 37s and such, with some minority repeats in there too. Noticed another marked and patternistic reappearance of the 777 variant of the 37s today as I've noted before, including even a “131777” plate in a parking lot, ha ha.

Had one standout that I remember, a classical “randomly buying unplanned stuff at the market and thus bringing about a 37-containing total,” this time when I went in to get the flowers but was Compelled to get the little packet of bath salts, thus bringing the total to exactly $7.03. But then came another twist, when I paid with the two $5 bills I had plus the dime that I'd founded just an hour or so earlier during lunch at the coffee shop, which thus brought my total change to exactly $3.07 …

7/18-19/18

These two days ended up being pretty much an identical repeat of that enormous two-day cluster from the 15th to 16th, both in terms of the extreme volume and intensity as well as the basic, fundamental feel/pattern/nature/behavior/varieties of the incidents, and also corresponding with the return of that exact same cyclical headsickness I've been having off and on lately – once again highly notable simply in the collective cohesion of it all/general repetition of the exact same overall activity, however subjective it all was.

The morning of the 18th was totally silent from what I remember, but lunchtime reading saw the return of the same subtle echoes and “all-inclusive”/”salad”-type of super-subtle craziness starting back up, and again reaching that point of simply overwhelming me in every way by mid-afternoon, such that I again only got some standouts and a few examples at best, with probably several dozen reasonably notable/coherent incidents just slipping past either barely registered by me or just overwhelming my ability to write them down. The same went for the 19th, after a silent evening (though it did seem like I saw another brief resurgence of those same “randomly reading exactly what I was just randomly thinking”-type of echoes and thematics and such during dinnertime reading) on the 18th, with a mostly silent morning followed by the seamless/”carryover” resuming of activity just after lunch and through the day's drive before again silencing mostly by evening.

Standouts/examples I got down:

> Another classical “greeter” 37-plate upon arriving at the coffee shop on the 18th for lunch, and 100% patternistic with that “randomly turning in, only to be 'struck' by a perfectly/logistically precise 37-plate on the very first car I passed upon pulling in, with the plate 'staring' at me in that conspicuous way, etc,” and all of this following that now-established pattern of seeming to mark a shift from the silent morning into the day's collectively crazy activity like other days

> Another big batch/cluster of those exact same loose/fuzzy/thematic/delayed reading/”nearby strangers' random conversation”-type echoes on the 18th through the first half of lunch, now between the 'Dark Net' book and my thoughts and the big group of kids that sat down around me at the picnic tables, such as my super-randomly thinking about how I had that other half of the coffee still inside from where they'd poured me extra and thus was thinking of who I could give it to since I wasn't going to drink it, thus bringing about another absent thought of something like “a free coffee for someone,” about a second or two before one of the nearby kids yelled out something about “free coffee,” and the same for my randomly thinking of the $50 bill I'd gotten in the birthday card from the parents, with another 1-2 second echo of one of the kids talking about how “he'd received a $50 Lego set even though it wasn't his birthday,” as to echo the general sentiment of “$50/birthday,” plus probably 5-6 others of this exact same behavior and the like, very notable collectively

> Pretty coherent/standout echo while I was messing with the TV box for Mom, when someone called and triggered the pop-up message on the screen with “GO BACK” in the middle of it, precisely as either Mom said “go back” or the TV show in the background did, I can't remember – a perfectly synchronistic echo of “go back” anyhow, coinciding perfectly with my registering the “go back” text just like so many of this type

> Good example of the several dozen+ “small/fleeting/one-dimensional/striking”-type of “stream of consciousness” echoes that came in earnest/onslaught-level by mid-afternoon: when the radio randomly sang out “mountains” precisely as I rounded a bend and thus came into contact with some roadside sign where the first word on it at the top/first to be registered was something about “mountain,” and again not only perfectly/patternistically timed with my registering the text, but with that 100% objective/”invisible until that precise very instant”/”revealed/animated” quality of so many of these, just so utterly surreal in itself but a million times moreso given that it happened in the midst of so damn many other, identical ones (plus the same semi-steady background static of 37-plates and other activity at the time, just leaving my head spinning)

> Again after a silent early morning on the 19th, a very coherent and notable standout radio/100% objective event-type echo just after I left the hotel room  and got in the car and started to the office to checkout, beginning when I shot my wrist and checked the time on my watch to see if I'd make the 12:00 PM checkout, and then, seeing I'd be getting there probably exactly at 12, I registered the time with something like “have time/perfect timing/just enough time to get there exactly” – precisely as “right on time sang” randomly/singularly from the radio, and this again seeming to signal and onset of the day's activity, etc, with the super-subtle stuff coming on at lunch soon after and again creeping up through lunch and then the day's drive until hitting that same plateau of near-constant super-subtle activity/traffic plates, etc – more collectively patternistic notability

> Another really good example of the day's endless thought/radio/reading/whatever echoes: when I was on the way to the gym and I had the thought of whether I'd be okay wearing my jeans there or if they'd require me to wear some gym-type clothes, thus causing me to automatically/absently/patternistically visualize my black jeans specifically – perfectly synchronistic with the radio randomly/singularly singing out “dark jeans,” again not only perfectly timed and patternistically consistent with the day's specific kind of these sort of echoes, but echoing the “dark” jeans specifically, not only the “jeans” sentiment but the charcoal-colored ones that I was wearing and visualizing at that precise instant, ha ha

> Another standout fuzzy/loose/indirect/slightly delayed nearby stranger/reading echo at lunch, when a woman came to the counter just next to me and said randomly to the person there, “That peanut butter smoothie is to die for,” about .5-1 second before I came to the sentence, “The other day, I binged on spoonfuls of peanut butter,” and this one not only echoing the general “peanut butter” sentiment but also the vague additional sentiment of it being luxurious/desirous/an indulgence, also 100% consistent with so many of these that I've been seeing in this latest “chapter” of the super-subtle-onslaught-type activity

7/20-21/18

Another of those exact same two-day super-clusters of the exact same activity, right down to the volume/feel/cycles/ebb-and-flow, etc, and once again just so profound and notable in the coherence of these things collectively, just speaking so much about the nature of the phenomenon.

New list of the standouts/examples/ones I managed to get down amidst the overwhelming crush of numbers and echoes and everything else:

> Activity on the 20th began late morning after total silence again, and this time with some scattered standouts/coherent ones with the same trademark feel/behavior of the others in these clusters, really about the same just slow and spaced well enough for me to observe them and write them down. First was a thought/event echo in the market, I was called over to the next line unexpectedly by the cashier opening there, thus causing me to give this delayed/soupy/"wha?"-type response that I automatically registered as something like "dopey/odd response/you sounded weird," precisely as, upon turning to go to the register, I came face to face with a Snickers bar with "AWKWARD" written across it as some of these do, and directly in my line of sight/perfectly synchronistically "there," etc.

> Then, minutes later in the parking lot, another "Compelled to go the wrong/illogical/inconvenient way, only to come face-to-face with a 37-plate" one, when I suddenly and about involuntarily found myself turning into the parking lot, away from my car, etc, but directly into the path of a 5073-plate truck, and again totally invisible to me until I'd made the turn, etc

> Next, another minute or so later when picking up trash in the parking lot, another of those super-subtle "random number"-type echoes, beginning when I picked up this key fob with "117171717" or a bunch of 1s and 7s written on it like that, thus causing me to register it as something like "bunch of 17s there," and then, seconds later when I picked up the next piece of trash, a flattened drink can, the first thing I saw was a nearly identical string of 1s and 7s, which I again registered as a bunch of 17s -- a good example of the many many super-sublte, instant, "fuzzy"/"indirect"-type of echoes that come in rapid-fire during the peak of these recent mega-clusters of activity

> Next, another few minutes later after I pulled across the street to the coffee shop, another good example of the super-subtle "fast/small/fuzzy/striking"-type of echoes, when I got out of the car with the car running and heard over the radio, at the last possible moment before I shut the door, the lyric "spill," precisely as the door closed and thus "revealed" a previously invisible stain on the pavement, a big star-shaped drink-spill stain, unmistakably so, and conspicuous/directly where I was looking absently when the door closed, etc

> Also, a minute or two earlier when I'd been parking: I originally parked in one spot, but was suddenly Compelled to back up and park in one behind me, again illogically/inconveniently, etc, and of course when I parked there and got out, I was face-to-face with a 7735 plate (or something like that -- me coming directly/patternistically into contact with this plate as a direct result of my equally patternistic Compelled move, in any case)

> Another good, coherent example of the many "instant-thought/event" echoes, this one coming during the afternoon drive on the highway, beginning when the radio randomly sang out about someone who "went off to fight for Uncle Sam," thus causing me to automatically/absently think "military" and "army" and related sentiment, with this coming simultaneously with my changing lanes in order to let a conspicuous tail-gating car pass -- and then, a split second after the lyric and as the military thoughts were still patternistically crossing my mind, the car passed fully and thus "revealed" an "ARMY" bumper sticker directly in the upper-right-hand corner of its rear window, such that it "struck" me/"invaded" the direct piece of space I was looking at at the time, and 100% invisible beforehand, 100% precise ...

> On the evening of the 20th, at the very end of the day's long drive, a collectively notable uptick of "active" traffic-plate type incidents emerged, after a period of general silence/only scattered low-key plates, with a succession of probably 6-8 at least of the classical "active"/highly conspicuous kind coming nearly back to back, from reckless turn-in-fronts to passing tail-gaters and pretty much every sort of other

> Lunchtime reading on the 20th saw the return of the super-subtle "rapid-fire/back-to-back" whirlwind start back up, and these too also gaining that distinctly fuzzy and often highly oblique or bizarre quality that characterizes many of these, beginning literally right off the bat as soon as I sat down to read, when something had made me smile conspicuously just before I opened the book, on which the first page was the start of a new chapter entitled "The Chief Smiles," as to echo the partial/"fuzzy" basic sentiment of "smile," with there following a succession of probably a dozen or so patternistically identical ones just within the space of a half-hour or so, including the 100% personal/super-complicated thematics as well (and some of these those impossibly profound, surreal, absolutely unspeakably accurate and bizarre kind that I've seen before, too).

> One good example of the huge number of super-subtle/small/partial "stream of consciousness" echoes from this time: when I had taken out my to-do list to write down the note of the activity returning at lunchtime reading and thus saw how I had the note on there to "schedule colonic," seconds before I came to a mention of a "high colonic" in the 'Wild Boys' book, which was not only pretty notable in itself due to timing and precision, then moreso given its identical behavior with all the others at this time, but also the rarity/obscurity of reference to a colonic in such a book, since it's not a hugely common practice these days but the book was published in 1969, when they were still very obscure

> And another standout reading echo from lunch, this one another of those "small but much bigger when experienced"-type ones. It happened later on during lunch, when I was inside and reading, and a random man walked directly past me and where I was looking peripherally while reading, such that all I saw was his feet, which were in sandals, thus causing me to absently/automatically register their "invasion" into my peripheral vision with a vague thought of "sandals/sandaled feet" -- perfectly synchronistic with my randomly coming to "sandals" in the book, and again so perfectly intertwined that I'd be apt to write it off as subconscious suggestion or selective perception, *except that it hinged entirely on the fully random, fully objective event of this sandal-wearing man walking past me at that precise instant, and at the precise angle/spacing/other logistics such that his feet would pass before my eyes when at the downcast, reading angle* ...

> After lunch on the 20th, it was again just a full-out onslaught more or less, again overwhelming me before I'd even gotten on the highway and experienced the peak of it all, again probably upwards of several dozen more-coherent/notable ones across the board, at least, not counting as many or more super-subtles, plus the extreme personal thematics and parallels and recurrences and the like, of which the same could be said of the first part of the afternoon on the 21st though this one didn't last as long, tapering off to just cyclical little periods of it by mid-afternoon before silencing by evening (and this again patternistically/reflectively corresponding perfectly with periods of bad health/headsickness/toxicity, etc)

> Morning of 21st was largely silent except for a little cluster of those "cartoons echoing recent thoughts/events just prior to my sitting down to clip them"-type ones that I've seen many times now, with two good standouts: the first one began immediately before I went for the cartoons when I'd finished my morning shake and had the vague-but-distinct thought, first, of how creamy and frothy it was with the blended almond milk and whey, like a milkshake, and also I distinctly thought about how many calories might've been in it with the several ingredients in it -- and then, either the very first or one of the cartoons I looked at on the fresh page, was of a woman at a bar who orders a fancy blended frappaccino-like milk drink (echoing "milkshake"/"blended milk") and then asks the barista "How many calories are in this?," as to be another of those multidimensional, perfect echoes of what I'd been thinking seconds previously yet 100% objective, etc. And then, a minute later when I'd sat down in the dark room and consequently had trouble making out the small print on some of the cartoons, thus causing me to automatically think something like "too dark/can't see," the very next cartoon I came to, on its very first panel, had a dog squinting trying to read something and saying "I can't read" or see or something like that -- another perfect, and perfectly synchronistic, echo

> The rest of the day's activity started only at lunchtime reading today, but it was nearly identical to yesterday, with the exact same big cluster of super-subtle/fuzzy/partial/"fast" reading/event/radio-type one-word echoes at the coffee shop, again probably a dozen at least just within the first ~15 minutes of reading, and all of the exact same feel/behavior, etc, with these eventually being joined by the incredibly personal and profound/"BOOK ECHOING EXACTLY WHAT I'M EXPERIENCING GENERALLY IN MY LIFE!!!"-type thematics and the like, right back to yesterday's crazy, overwhelming whirlwind, such that I almost didn't even try to note them today. Two standoutish examples of the echoes I got down before surrendering: first, a somewhat standoutish one-word echo, of "suddenly" between the book and the radio, with this one being a little more notable because the word in the book was just a random one that I'd "flashed" directly/absently/automatically in my line of sight when I'd shifted the book around and thus accidentally turned a page somehow, with this one word being the only I registered yet perfectly synchronistic with "suddenly" singing randomly from the radio. And then, later on, also a "small" one-word but made more objectively notable by its context: I came to "stood" precisely as man sitting directly across from me/directly in my peripheral vision, stood quickly and suddenly and super-conspicuously from his seat, "springing" is more like it, with him making way for an employee that had come around cleaning, as if he was startled from his phone or something I think -- in any case, a sort of "shouted" version of it, and made all the more surreal when witnessed by me precisely as I randomly/singularly came to that in the book ...

> One standoutish traffic-plate incident on the way to lunch, the first of the day and only one then if I remember right: when I was stopped at a light that had just changed to green, thus causing me to be quickly/conspicuously passed by two cars that didn't have to stop upon reaching the light, such that they blew past me and rocked my car and, consequently, "invaded" my vision patternistically with first a 373-plate and then, from the next car immediately behind the first, a 73-plate, again in 1-2/wham-bam fashion (which of course would end up being just like the many traffic-plate incidents that would go unlogged during the afternoon highway-driving whirlwind cluster)

> Another good standoutish example of the super-subtle/vague/fuzzy/indirect echoes of these kinds: at the coffee shop today, on the 21st, when I parked and absently noticed, directly in front of me, a big exposed construction trench where the sidewalk would be, which was in effect a big conspicuous strip of bright-brown dirt interrupting the paved parking lot and the paved street, etc, thus causing me to absently/patternistically register it with a thought of something like "dirt/dirt-brown trench/dirt in the middle of pavement" -- precisely as the radio randomly sang out "dirty"

7/22/18

Today was another carryover of the exact same activity I've been seeing this last week or so, except much quieter than other days, which seems to be following that "wind-down" part of these cycles of the phenomenon.

First activity I noted today was a sudden though brief-and-super-subtle return of the "salad" mix of small echoes/thematics/parallels/recurrences, this time beginning just before church and here and there through the service. Though, interestingly: none of these were of that explicit "church-time-echo"-type of activity, instead just a showing of those same fuzzy/indirect/bizarre super-subtle incidents that seemed to just happen to occur during church, and these too with no coherent-enough standouts despite being pretty notable subjectively.

Lunchtime saw more of this same activity, albeit a little more and slightly more coherent, not as much as yesterday, more scattered and subtle but definitely there, and still with that exact same feel and behavior.

Lunch started with another of those singular, standout echoes, and this coming literally immediately as I sat down and opened the book to begin reading and eating, just like quite a few others of this nature. It started when I had another of those patternistically sudden and random but distinct and fully objective thoughts, this time of how, just seconds earlier on my way out of the restaurant on my way to the patio, I'd told the lady in there how her trainee cashier had done a good job, and I suddenly thought of this upon sitting down, as to automatically and absently cause me to think of the words "good job" particularly -- about .5 seconds (in that patternistic "inconsequentially delayed" fashion) before a nearby stranger who'd just gotten out of a car that had pulled up randomly said, "Good job!"

Also, a good, standoutish example of those same subtle reading/event echoes and the like peppering lunch: when I randomly/singularly came to "wash off" in the book, precisely as an employee appeared beside me and began to wipe off a nearby table, perfectly timed and highly precise.

After lunch, activity went pretty much silent, and would stay so for the rest of the day as of writing. Did have some traffic-plate and parking-lot numbers after lunch, including another of those "immediately after getting back in the car and driving, the first plate I encountered being a 37-plate," this time a little more notable/conspicuous, with it being another of those "perfectly timed/other perfect logistics"-type of "random 37-plate car conspicuously turning in front of me as to 'flash' its plate directly into my line of sight," just seconds after I'd started driving through the restaurant parking lot to leave, and with this followed by another brief, maybe 4-5-strong little succession of parking-lot plates "staring" at me as I made my way through the lot, though from there it about all went silent even of low-key scattered plates.

Did have a slight but present showing of "everywhere" 37s here and there through the day, with the best/most-standoutish example being at the gym, when I put my MP3 player on and it resumed playing on the song I'd left off from the last time, such that when its display popped on and I went to change songs/adjust volume before working out, I was "flashed" with the song's name and its "remaining time" readout -- precisely as it ticked from 3:08 to 3:07 minutes left, again in 100% patternistic "clock-tick" manner, and with the added notability of being "animated"/"striking" with the clock-tick coinciding perfectly with the screen lighting up and my looking at it, just so damn surreal when experienced, however "small-sounding" it comes off in writing.

7/23/18

Today was basically just like yesterday, same type of incidents and same low, "quiet" volume.

Morning was another that went from total silence early on to a brief but present period of quiet activity on the morning drive to the appointment:

> First incident came when I was at an intersection and first one truck passed by directly into my line of sight/patternistically such that its 37-plate "invaded" my area of focus in that logistically perfect way, and then, a split second later, a second, similar "space-invader" car pulled up, this one with both a "7/30/18" temp tag and a "3.7L" emblem just beside that

> Next, had another slow, gradual appearance of those exact same super-subtle/fast/fuzzy/indirect echoes as lately, probably 4-5 over the course of the drive, with the best example being when I caught myself slumping my shoulders and thus thought something like "shoulders/slumping shoulders" and then corrected them back, a split second before "shoulder" came randomly/singularly over the radio, that exact same behavior/"feel" of many of these

> Then, equally patternistic: another "37 greeter-plate" upon getting to the appointment and pulling into the parking lot, with a 370-plate sitting right at the edge of the lot, the first car visible there and directly/patternistically in my line of sight/logistically placed such that the plate was "staring" at me again, ha ha, and this followed up by three other 37-plates nearby in the same lot that I passed on the way to a free space

Had a handful of parallels/recurrences through morning here and there too, most notably when I was reading through the cooking magazine and, upon browsing the cooking techniques and the like, I had the thought of how I was attracted to cooking books and the like for the underlying concepts evident in cooking techniques and taste combinations and such, and how they are all applicable to life at large in the way that all things are unified, etc -- and then, minutes later, I came to a big article in the magazine profiling an Asian Buddhist chef, with a big quoted caption beneath him saying how his Buddhist principles apply as much to his cooking as anything else due to all things being connected/universal concepts, etc, as to echo more or less exactly what I'd just been thinking, and even in the same terms of "food concepts applying to life at large," etc.

Lunchtime reading saw another scattered, subtle cluster of those exact same inclusive "salad" super-subtle incidents as seems to be the present lunchtime trend, same sudden, immediate onset of the striking and fuzzy one-word reading/radio/random-thought echoes, more "everyday little thing" parallels and recurrences (though no thematics today, I noticed). Few standoutish examples:

> A cool "resumed reading"-type one, starting when I put my arm around the metal chair beside me and clinked my ring on the back, thus producing a tinny, metalic "tink!" and thus causing me to automatically/absently register it with a thought of "metal noise/metal chair" while simtultaneously raising my book up to resume reading it -- and then, again while the "metal" thought was still crossing my mind, the very first, random word to "arrive" automatically in my eyes was "metal"

> An identical "objective random thought" one, beginning when I felt the back of the chair digging into my back and disrupting circulation, thus causing me to automatically register it with a thought of "my back/digging into my spine" -- a split second before I came to "my spine" in the book, another of those that I'd easily chalk up to subconscious reading-ahead if not for the stark objectivity/independence/singularness/traceability of the thought and its hinging on an objective event, etc

> Another random-thought one later, another of those "long random chain of thought"-type ones where I absently had the thought about taking a trip up north, thus causing me to think about its feasbility and the logistics of it, thus causing me to absently think of how I'd go about packing for it specifically, and even visualizing myself doing so -- a split second before I came to "packing to leave" in the book, and in that same context of preparing to depart on a trip, etc, and even more notable considering that this text occurred at the most random and even awkward time in the book, arising spontaneously during a part that had nothing to do with travel or anything related that might have subconsciously cued me in any way, being about war and two men in a battlefield

From there, the rest of the day was more or less silent, with only some more scattered super-subtle echoes and recurrences and the like here and there, and even a proportionately small and low-key showing of traffic plates and the like, probably the quietest overall traffic-number days in some time. Only two standouts I remember in this regard:

> 100% patternistic "first after-lunch plate being a 37," and this time a bit more conspicuous and notable given that it was on the trailer of a big truck that was pulled over alongside the road, not quite off of it as to block the lane I was driving on and thus causing me to swerve around it and take particular notice of it, etc, all of which drew my attention patternistically to its plate

> Another of those 100% patternistic "immediately upon leaving a store and stepping into the parking lot and thus being 'greeted' by a patternistically 'staring' 37-plate," this time a 370 at the market, a classical textbook one in every way, first I encountered upon leaving the place, and "staring" at me in that logistically perfect way, etc.

Did have some random/everywhere/semi-conspicuous 37s and minority repeats today, also much like yesterday, enough to be there and present but neither too numerous nor loud. Had another couple receipt-type ones, such as when I went to buy the beets and felt Compelled to get just so many, and just such ones, again sort of lingering there and hesitating and being distinctly but illogically urged to get some specific ones from the many in the bin, only to end up having them weigh in at exactly "0.73 lbs" on the receipt, plus a couple other, lesser ones.

7/24/18

Today was much like the last couple days except with more overall activity, though largely silent still.

Morning was totally silent from what I remember, with the exception of one single incident, a small and vague but standoutish recurrence, and this one of the "old" kind, not the "everday little thing" "fuzzy" ones but just a plain old "seeing some particular, relatively uncommon thing for the first time in a while, then encountering it again soon after"-type one. It started yesterday in that magazine with the same article of the Buddhist chef that echoed how I'd been thinking about "cooking as life" concepts, in which it also mentioned how many Buddhist monks have as their only possession their meal bowl -- and then, in another magazine this morning, it mentioned, totally offhand and super-randomly, "a monk's meal bowl," and made a bit more notable by the fact that this was not only a totally different magazine and on the very next day after the last, but in a home-design magazine of all things, in which it mentioned the bowl only because it was a random decoration in a room it was describing.

From there, everything was totally silent until lunchtime reading, when I again saw pretty much an exact repeat of yesterday's "immediate big cluster of super-subtle one-word reading/thought/event incidents, followed by some more-coherent ones as lunch went on, then coming to an abrupt silence by the end of hte meal" pattern/format, right down the same feel and volume, etc, and all reflect of the identically headsick mental state I was in at the time. Had a number of pretty strong standouts here:

> Having that weird, random appendix-area pain flare up suddenly, thus causing me to suddenly and involuntarily shift my legs and twist around in my seat to try to relieve it, precisely as I randomly came to "commuters shift in their seats" in the book

> A highly notable and ridiculously surreal one, for any number of reasons: it started just after I'd laid down the book facedown on the table without checking it first, only to find I'd laid it in a puddle of water that couldn't easily be seen, thus wetting the page I was reading to the point that half of it was see-through and the text was jumbled together with the text from the opposite leaf, as to blur it all together, thus causing me to randomly think exactly "can't see, blurred words, hard to read," with "blurred" the specific word I mentally vocalized -- a split second before I came to "the words blur in front of my eyes," which in itself was in the blurry wet section of the page, and again patternistically corresponded perfectly/intertwined with the thought of "blurred words" crossing my mind, so ridiculously surreal and notable

> Randomly getting up and changing my seating on the patio table in order to face toward the sun, just seconds before a family pulled up just behind me and unloaded and entered the door at my back, thus causing me to feel oddly and vaguely uncomfortable with all these seen-but-not-heard people walking just past my back, thus causing me to think "my back's turned to them just now, wish I'd not changed positions" or something like that -- precisely as I came to "backs turned" in the book, and in the same context

It bears mention here that those three, plus I think two or three other, subtler/less-coherent ones, occurred within the first few pages/~10 minutes of sitting down to eat, both immediately, within the first paragraph, and in fast, rapid-fire, near-back-to-back fashion.

> Then a little later, an involuntary bodily function-type one, beginning when I suddenly had a fully random and fully involuntary evacuation of that terrible bloatedness in the spleen area that I'd had all day, thus causing my stomach to visibly and audibly deflate and just altogether shift back into place, precisely as I came to "that twist in the pit of my stomach" in the book, not a perfect echo in the sense that it wasn't quite a "twist" I'd felt, but definitely precise as far as a simple echo of the "movement in pit of stomach" sentiment, and absolutely perfectly timed of course

> On the "nearby stranger" front: precisely as a man both walked directly past me and put a phone to his ear and answered it, I came to "answered his phone" in the book, another that's notable in itself but far moreso when experienced subjectively, due to the logistical, patternistic perfection of it all, the timing of both his walking past and answering the phone just then, plus his doing so *just such* that he was directly in front of me and visible over my book and thus demanding my attention at the time. Plus an equally notable footnote/second part of the incident here: as I wrote the note for this incident, which finished with "man putting phone to his ear as he passed," the overhead TV randomly said "passed," 100% perfectly synchronistic/intertwined with my writing the word

Thought-wise, the rest of the day saw maybe the slightest scattering of the slightest, subtlest little echoes and parallels/recurrences/vague thematics here and there, of that "inclusive background static" feel and behavior but an extremely quiet, scattered version of it, exactly as I've been seeing the last couple days or so, before total silence by early evening.

Numbers: they were there, but beginning strictly after lunch only (and distinctly *without* that "immediately after lunch semi-big cluster" that I was seeing about regularly there for a while), and with a slow build-up even then, though they did eventually peak, for a half-hour or so just before heading home, with some moderately steady low-key traffic plates, more than lately but still not much overall.

Best standout today came about an hour after lunch just before I got to the chiropractor's, with what was not only a sudden cluster of activity after only a few plates beforehand, but was also reasonably active and "intelligent," etc. It started with there just suddenly being more 37-plates around in general, and then, as I stopped at the light just before turning into the plaza with the chiropractor's office, I first stopped directly behind a 537-plate car such that its plate was patternistically "staring" at me, and then, as I sat waiting, watched as probably 3-4 other 37-plates on passing cars in the next immediate lane not only came directly into my line of sight, but also "aligned" perfectly with the 537-plate, pretty much one after another, in wham-bam fashion. And then from there, just on the less-than-a-minute drive through the lot to park, I came into semi-conspicuous/patternistic contact with I think about 5 or 6 "staring" plates on parked cars, and then finally, after another Compelled and illogical and inconvenient parking space, this time beside a gigantic truck that would block my view when I had to back out later, I ended up pulling directly alongside the "1307" on a big phone number stenciled over the entire, previously invisible side of the big truck (and, if I remember right, this same space also put me directly/patternistically behind another 37-plate directly across from me, though I honestly can't remember, being so overwhelmed by sudden crush of numbers and the alignments and parking-lot sequence, etc.)

And then, interestingly, after I'd finished with the chiropractor and then gotten back on the road, about an hour later, I experienced yet another 37-plate alignment, again of two random 37-plate cars that I followed for a couple miles and which very slowly, gradually eventually hit that patternistic brief-and-perfect-and-logistically-precise alignment that's so patternistic of these. And I couldn't help but not the obvious literal parallel here with this all happening centered around my visit to the chiropractor, who would "align" my spine ...

Had two other standout 37-plate incidents, too, and these were also of that same kind of seen before where the plates aren't on actual cars but just pictured in magazines. The first was in the chiropractor's, when I picked the random car magazine out to read from a big stack, only to be greeted, on the very first page, by a full-page ad of a car with a 734-plate dead center in it, as to "greet" me/"strike" me with it. And then, even more notable given its timing only hours later this evening: when I opened up a new magazine, one of my own back at home in the sauna, almost the exact same thing happened, just on the second page in instead of the first, with the picture of a columnist in which, super-randomly and immaterially to the article, there was, as a random prop or decoration or whatever, an antique Maine license plate reading, simply "31137," ha ha.

Then had another of those "late" dinnertime-reading resurgences of the exact same lunchtime-reading-type activity, primarily in the form of probably 6-8 "reading exactly what I was just objectively thinking"-type echoes. Best examples: hearing the rain suddenly start up and begin pounding the roof, thus causing me to automatically register it with the thought of something like "raining/I can hear the rain/noisey rain," and then, maybe 1-2 seconds later, coming to something like "I could hear the rain hitting the window," different in that I heard it on the roof instead of the window but again 100% echoing the "hearing the rain" sentiment, and again pretty much perfectly timed and 100% patternistic and 100% objective, very notable. Then, a little later, slightly less notable but still 100% objective and patternistic: when I had another of those fully random and fully involuntary sudden heart palpitations that I get here and there through the day, the first that I'd had in some hours if I remember right, perfectly synchronistic with my coming to "racing heart" in the book, and again with it visible to me beforehand but the whole thing hinging on these 100% objective, random palpitations which come whether I'm reading or not and are never subconsciously cued, etc.

7/25/18

Another very quiet day, and today something of a deviation from the type and format of activity I've been seeing, still with some of those same super-subtle echoes and thematics and the like but only a scarce few today, and this too again corresponding explicitly and "reflectively" with an equal shift in health/consciousness/state/perception, very distinct again.

Really the only of this sort of activity I saw today was here and there through morning, in the form of those same extremely subtle and faint "threshold"-type echoes that I tend to see this time of day, and with a total lack of them by lunchtime, and this too corresponding with the exact same timing of improved health, change of state, etc.

First coherent activity of the day was a very notable and striking and singular/"normal"/non-super-subtle clock-tick-type incident. It started when I again sincerely and genuinely checked the time on my watch, when it had previously been facing away 100% such that I had to shoot my wrist out and rotate the watch, and seeing the time was 12:36. Except, as I looked, I saw that the display was blinking from one of the buttons being pressed again, so I went to press the button and make sure it was displaying the actual time instead of the alarm time or date or whatever like had happened the last time a button got pressed and the display was blinking (just yesterday) -- all of this causing me to keep the watch in view for just one more little split second, long enough to reach up and hit the button to ensure that it was displaying the time, after which the time (which was being displayed correctly) ticked to 12:37, and again all just so logistically perfect and patternistic and "synchronistic," it was just surreal beyond description.

From there, however, the day was almost 100% silent even of super-subtle activity and low-key traffic plates. I remember maybe a dozen or less 37-plates in traffic (and with few if any of the minority repeats), plus an equal amount of very subtle little echoes and parallels/recurrences/thematics and the like, and that was it, with an absolute silence even before I'd started home.

Did have one very notable, singular standout radio/thought just after lunch. It started when I had that sudden rush of energy and clarity/health improvement come on while driving and listening to that good song on the radio upon stopping at the intersection, thus causing me to really get into a groove and lower my head and close my eyes, bordering on losing myself/getting a little too distracted with it all while driving, thus causing me to think something like "sit up straight/pay attention/lift your head" -- perfectly synchronistic with "hold your head up" randomly/singularly singing from the radio, ha ha.

7/26/18

Today was a sudden throwback to the same pattern/format/incident types I was seeing there steadily for a while, and this corresponding 100% with a return of that same headsickness and its attendant general state/condition/conscious state, notably so again.

Morning was totally silent, as was the morning drive and stuff, with the first activity appearing right after starting lunchtime reading, and though it was the exact same kind of inclusive super-subtle reading echoes and thematics and recurrences/parallels, and with the exact same signature pattern and behavior as I've been seeing, etc, today they started up very slowly and very very subtly, even as lunch went on, barely ever elevating above that totally unconveyable/super-subjective "threshold" level of extreme subtly and fuzziness/obscurity/indirectness, as well as just being simply few in number, with big silent gaps in between, as to have zero coherent-enough examples.

Numbers were silent until after lunch today, but they too reverted to that express "beginning immediately after lunch with a sudden, notable cluster of many quietly conspicuous plates in sequence," this time beginning with another of those 100% patternistic and now-classical "leaving the coffee shop and having the very first thing I see be a 37-plate" incidents, when I left the coffee shop and, through the door before I'd even stepped outside, there was a 2375 plate on a parked car, directly in my line of sight and logistically perfect/patternistic as to be "staring" at me in that distinct way. Then from there, another of those same quick successions of several semi-conspicuous "staring" 37-plates on parked cars and then more in traffic, again probably upwards of a dozen total, before again patternistically dropping off to just very scattered low-key plates soon after, just like these other cluster -> near-silence incidents.

From there, afternoon entered another slow, gradual build-up that eventually plateaued with a near-steady background static of low-key and semi-conspicuous 37-plates (plus a return of that 777 variant today, 100% patternistic, with a distinct and sudden uptick/reapperance exactly like other times, with probably upwards of a dozen of these alone today, after seeing few to none over the last few days that I remember). Did have several coherent/conspicuous classical "active" traffic ones mixed in again, all just so exactly like other days, nothing less than deja vu it felt. Standouts I got down, among quite a few I didn't:

> A classical "illogically Compelled to do something that led directly to my encountering a 37-plate," this time when I was on my way to the appointment in Calabash and was suddenly Compelled to turn over through Carolina Shores by that shopping plaza rather than take the hospital turn-off like I've done again perhaps literally every single time I've headed to Calabash -- only to find myself stopping directly behind a 3737-plate car at the red light there. And another notable contextual detail: I'd been Compelled to take this turn on the way past it earlier on, on the way to the tag office, rather than when I'd actually gone to make the turn an hour later, such that there's zero question of subconsciously seeing the 37-plate car and deciding to stop/selective perception, etc.

> Equally classical "tail-gating car forcing me to turn off and take particular notice, only to be greeted with a 37-plate as it passed," this time a car that was tail-gating all through the drive toward Little River and with me unable to change lanes due to there being traffic in the other lane, such that it all again just drew my attention for an inordinately long amount of time, and again just making it all the more dramatic/climactic when the tail-gater finally drifted past and "flashed" its 7355-plate directly into my line of sight

> Another 100% patternistic "non-car 37-plates" one, at that random thrift store I went to donate the books to, not only a 73-plate on the wall there but a 737 too, and this all the more notable due to the patternistically random and conspicuous circumstances of my even being there at all, due to my originally having planned to donate the books to a Goodwill, then being Compelled to donate them to that other thrift store over in Calabash, but, due to not having time to do it before the appointment, I had to wait until afterward, when, on the way, I was again Compelled to donate them somewhere else, to this random thrift store I approached on the way -- all 100% patternistic of the "random/conspicuous Compellings and circumstances leading to some fashion of conspicuous 37 object," ha ha.

Afternoon saw that same inclusive background static of mixed, unconveyable super-subtle echoes/thematics/recurrences, but very scattered and with big silent gaps in between, more incidents overall than I've been seeing on the "quiet" days of late but far from a "loud" day either. Had a few little coherent standouts:

> Looking to back out at the parking lot of the library, thus looking directly at this distinctly old-looking pickup truck, an early-nineties model with peeled paint and a general air of age which led me to immediately register it with a thought of "old truck," I think specifically these words rather than just vaguely -- precisely as "old truck" came as randomly/singularly over the radio

> Same for a classical "passing roadside sign"-type one, when the radio randomly said "Ocean Isle" precisely as I passed a random highway side for "Ocean Isle Beach," and with both of these in the same context of the town I was passing by. And two notable contextual elements here, too: that, first, this was I think the only sign for the little town along this whole stretch of road, and, second, the station was a Spanish one, with "Ocean Isle" coming amidst a solid block of Spanish words, the only two English words in the whole call-sign/station announcement, ha ha

> A classical and pretty notable "nearby stranger" echo, starting when I set out the little flower arrangement with the note on it reading "there is hope" and then turned away, with the words on the note flashing into my line of sight as to be the last thing I saw before starting off and thus to leave them lingering absently/automatically in my mind -- at the precise, perfect instant some random nearby man said to another "I hope so"

And more "late" dinnertime-reading activity, exactly like last night's brief but significant resurgence of reading/random-thought echoes and the like, though tonight subtler and without any overly coherent standouts. Did have a standout recurrence, however, beginning this afternoon when I came across a woman pushing one of those enormous double-baby-strollers, I think in the market or somewhere where the aisle was narrow and so I had to scoot around her and again take patternistically particular notice of the stroller, as to think about how it was the first I'd encountered such a thing in months or years or longer -- and then in the book tonight, sure enough it randomly/offhand mentioned a "double buggy," that exact thing, classically patternistic in every way.

7/27/18

Same basic deal as lately but a generally quiet day, and this too reflective of increased headsickness/internal deadening per the prevailing pattern.

Morning was totally silent with the exception of several of those super-subtle but now-expressly-patternistic "cartoon echoes" when I went to clip the day's cartoons, with several echoing more or less exactly what I'd been thinking, with one being even coherent/standout-quality, when I'd been sitting for a while and my circulation started suffering, thus causing me to think absently but distinctly "need to get up/walk/get moving," a split second before I flipped open a new leaf of newspaper with cartoons and the very first one, directly/automatically/patternistically in my area of focus, was a cartoon with a turtling saying "I need to stretch my legs," in that exact same context of my thought, and not only perfectly timed but again 100% invisible to me beforehand, and all 100% patternistic of the "page-turn" echo.

Lunchtime reading was another of those now-patternistic "immediately big cluster of super-subtle one-word thought/reading echoes, followed by scattered ones plus thematics and parallels through the rest of the meal," again so distinct and recursive in the underlying pattern as to be highly notable in itself. Then, after about 10 minutes consisting of probably a half-dozen 100% objective one-word echoes between the book and my thoughts and nearby strangers and the like, had a more-notable one, a classical "involuntary bodily function"-type echo, beginning when that ugly pressure I'd had in the spleen/stomach area all last night and morning finally and spontaneously opened up and released, audibly so and with great relief, thus causing me to instantly/automatically think something like "relief/let go/evacuation/release" -- precisely as I came to "release" in the book.

Then, a little later on, once I'd gone inside and started the second course of the meal, another of those 100% patternistic three-way "radio/random thought/random song on the radio" longwinded-thematic-type incidents, of the exact same feel and behavior that I've seen in these quasi-rare ones, this time reasonably coherently so and a little more tightly timed. It started when I resumed reading the book from where I'd left off outside, which had stopped at a paragraph where the woman was talking about how much she missed her ex-husband and how much she'd wanted to see him, etc, and then, over the next page, went into a big dream sequence -- all the while, a song had begun playing exactly as I sat down and started reading, not quite perfectly synchronistic but at the time same give or take a couple seconds, in which its first lines mentioned "an ex," in that same context of an ex-lover, and then, in the chorus, mentioned "dreams," both literally and as a general theme, plus other patternistic thematic elements through the different threads of reading and thought and the music. Highly notable when experienced, and just ridiculously/living-dream surreal ...

From there, again saw a largely silent afternoon, with maybe only the slightest little brief clusters of inclusive super-subtle activity here and there.

Did have one reasonably coherent one-word echo, which was somewhat upgraded to standout-level notability by the fact that I've experienced this exact same incident several different times now, always when I either think of whey protein, which I think/mentally verbalize simply as "whey," or look at "whey" on my shopping list or something, precisely as some phoenetic of it sounds from somewhere, usually simply "way," like it was today, when I came to "whey" on my shopping list and distinctly noticed it having forgotten it earlier, thus causing me to think "oh yeah, need whey," perfectly synchronistic with "Way!" singing from the radio, and again as a louder, emphatic single-word verse, as to just make it all the more dramatic/"there"/striking/surreal.

Oddly, numbers were largely silent today, even during afternoon, I think only a scattered handful of 37-plates in traffic and such, all low-key and with zero "active" ones from what I remember. In fact, the only standouts at all were, first, a classical "37-plate greeting conspicuously upon my pulling into a parking lot," 100% patternistic but also made a bit more notable by the fact that my turning into this lot was 100% random and Compelled, with my simply needing to turn around by having gone way down the road and passed several possible lots before suddenly being Urged to pull into this one, thus bringing directly into contact with a 4733-plate car, ha ha.

Also, a classical 37-containing receipt-total one, and this one notable, first, because the market had been out of the blueberries I'd come for, thus causing me to get some blackberries, at a different price, plus they didn't have some of the other stuff I'd wanted and so I had to make other substitutions -- thus bringing the total to exactly $7.77, not only a 37-variant but continuing that distinct patternistic uptick of that one in particular I've been seeing the last couple days (seems like I saw a couple more 777 plates here and there today too, but memory is not reliable here).

Had a cool classical and extra-notable clock-tick-type one. It started when I was driving to the gym and was suddenly and urgently and again illogically/inconveniently Compelled to turn on my phone and go to Amazon and leave that feedback for the almonds I got the other day, not make a note to do it later or whatever but do it *then,* despite it being about the lowest-priority thing to do, etc -- and then, once I turned on the phone and the home screen came up, it was a perfect, instantaneous clock-tick from 3:16 to 3:17 on the big clock-time displayed dead center in the screen, with that patternistic perfect logistics/timing as well as the patternistic "animated" effect from the screen coming up at just that precise instant that the time clicked to that, again in that 100% patternistic fashion of there being *just enough* time for me to register the original number before it changed, etc.

And yet another of the brief, "late" resurgences of the exact same super-subtle reading echoes and such in both evening readings, in the sauna/magazine and then at dinnertime/the 'Girl on the Train' book. Had a standout in the sauna, another of those exact same "reasonably precise/direct reading echo of something about heat/sweating at the precise instant that I reach that critical mass after being in the sauna for some time and go from simply hot to sweating," this time again with the very first drops of sweat coming out precisely as I came to "overheat" in the magazine, ha ha. Dinnertime echoes were all either only subjectively notable or too complex to get down, and only a few of them, but still exactly like those at lunch, and following the same pattern/timing I've been seeing the last few days at dinner.

7/28/18

Today was another that kept to the same basic pattern/variety/feel/format of the last several days, but just a very quiet version of it, again seeming to follow that overarching pattern/cyclical high/low cycle of activity.

Morning was absolutely silent, save for a minor but 100% patternistic "first noticeable improvement in day's health after a night and morning of abnormally bad health/condition corresponding with the first reading of an offhand 37-mention during after-chore reading," this time when the night's/early-morning's headsickness finally lifted for the first meaningful amount, as to hit that tipping point from "bad" to "stable" as is always the case with these, exactly as I reached for the magazine to resume reading it and there, on the cover (and previously unseen by me, after reading half the magazine already and looking at the cover several times before and during), were two 37s I'd missed, and again with these "jumping out"/my Just Happening to raise the magazine up at the precise instant that the involuntary improvement arrived.

Lunchtime reading was almost silent as well, save for the slightest, scattered super-subtle echoes and parallels/recurrences (no thematics that I remember) here and there, again of that distinct "threshold" level of activity that's established itself so firmly recently, and with the rest of the afternoon being totally silent even of these from what I remember, overall the quietest in some time.

Only exception was another of those now-patternistic "single, notable, coherent standout" one coming out of the blue and with none following. It happened when I was scratching off that lotto ticket I was Compelled, again uncharacteristically and illogically, to buy today, when I scratched off the one space and revealed the little "bag of money" picture instead of a number, after scratching off only numbers before, and with the bag meaning that I won and so of course being relatively rare/uncommon -- precisely as the radio sang out as randomly/singularly "it's not my bag," with the "bag" again corresponding 100% perfectly synchronistic/intertwined with my scratching off the top half of the square and thus registering the little bag icon and so absently/automatically thinking something like "money bag."

Even numbers today were just barely there, only probably a dozen or so very scattered and very low-key plates over the course of the entire afternoon despite my running around quite a bit, plus a few minor standouts:

> Had a classical "randomly finishing reading on a 37-variant page" at lunch, again 100% contingent on my randomly finishing eating my ~1.5 hour lunch at that precise time and precisely on page #307, and made more notable by the fact that I didn't even catch it until tonight when I went to read it again at dinnertime.

> Had a back-to-back pair of classical "random car passing me close by as I walked through a parking lot, only to have its 37-plate 'invade' my vision/my immediate and absent area of focus, etc," at the market, literally one after another and both in the same quietly conspicuous and patternistic manner. These were made a little more notable by the fact that it again involved the patternistic Compelling to go grab a shopping cart someone had left inconsiderately in the middle of the parking lot and then return it to a specific carrel, thus causing me to be there walking down that particular lane where the cars passed when I wouldn't have otherwise been doing so, with it having led me temporarily away from my car, etc.

> A similar "Compelled random action leading me to a 37-plate encounter" one at the other market, a bit more notable. It started when I was again Compelled to park in a certain space so that I could pick up some litter that Jumped Out at me and return a conspicuous "RETURN ME" cart there too, and then, similarly, when I came back out, I was Compelled to leave the day's flowers at a neaby ATM kiosk, thus requiring me to walk a ways from the car and the space -- and then, upon returning, I saw that the car I'd parked beside had a 7305-plate, again 100% invisible to me when I'd parked, and likewise only visible after I'd followed the Compelling to walk the flowers to the kiosk and thus get enough distance/at the right angle to see the parked car's plate -- exactly like all of these "Compelled to a 37-plate" ones, to a T.

7/29/18

A change-up somewhat today, another of those that saw a sudden big cluster of morning activity and then comparably less through afternoon, and it was just like others of this kind where I had an equally abnormally active morning/going out to church/different routine, etc.

Early morning was totally silent even of slight echoes, and then, immediately upon leaving the house for church, had a loose cluster of subtle-but-present "fuzzy" echoes start up, probably 4-5 just in the space of the few minutes drive out of the park. Couple standoutish examples:

> A sort of loose, longwinded-thematic-type one involving the "Slow Hands" song coming on the radio and passing pedestrians and such that all waved at me, with several of those loose, slight-delayed and super-literal echoes throughout, such as the "slow hands" chorus coming up precise as I performed a conspicuously slow, single wave to someone (a "slow hand," 100% patternistic of these fuzzy/literal-only-type echoes), and mentions of "fingertips" corresponding with several of the waves (when the "fingertips" were waved, etc).

> Cool standout when I turned onto the road from the park and was struck suddenly and strikingly by the conspicuous red LED tailight of a motorcycle that had just passed, with the light/motorcycle being "revealed" upon my turning diagonally onto the road/rounding the bend, thus causing me to absently/automatically register the light's "animated" appearance with a thought of something like "red/red light/bright red light" -- precisely as "seeing red" sang from the radio, perfectly synchronistic, etc

From there, had a few more of these super-subtle/fuzzy echoes through the drive to church, along with the quietly conspicuous appearance of low-key plates, ultimately a moderate cluster of these, plus a couple standoutish "active" ones even, such as a classical "37-plate car turning suddenly and conspicuously and patternistically in front of me in a notable way," a 3176-plate truck that pulled from a side road and directly into the middle lane of the highway precisely as I'd turned into the middle lane and then sped up some, as to just have that conspiucously logistically perfect "flow"/"animation" to it, etc.

Then, another, more notable little cluster immediately upon arriving at church, most coherently when I turned in and was struck by the overcrowded parking lot, which I'd seen many times during the week when there was no service but was seeing for the first time on a Sunday morning, with cars and pedestrians all over the place, thus causing me to register it with another automatic thought of something like "crowded/lots of cars and people" -- precisely as the radio randomly/singularly sang out "there's people everywhere," and followed by a couple other, subtler echoes of other random things/feelings/thoughts I had upon turning into the lot and driving around in search of a space.

The church service saw activity too, and this was again just a continuance of the super-subtle/fast/fleeting/thematic/parallels-and-recurrences-type of stuff seen over the drive there, rather than those distinct "church sermon"-type of echoes and the like that used to so conspicuously characterize church services (why none of this anymore?). Ultimately ended up being quite a bit of activity overall here, a few more-coherent echoes (such as the pastor randomly/singularly saying "phone" almost exactly as an audience member's phone "dinged!" with the arrival of a text message, pretty notable considering it was that distinct sound of an *arriving* text message, not one being sent or some other voluntary activity of the owner, just them randomly receiving a text message precisely as the pastor said "phone" for the only time before or after that ...). Had lots of super-subtle and super-personal thematics here too, most notably one involving a theme of "heart trouble" and my literal heart upset at the time, when I suddenly had one of those super-random nightmarish heart-upset spells where my heart slows and struggles to beat and feels alternately labored and with palpitations/speeding up, etc, when it hadn't done that all morning or last night but then it coincided almost perfectly with the pastor repeatedly mentioning "you need a heart check" and "you need to get to Dr. Jesus and have your heart fixed," and even a couple times when he said "your heart is slow" or something almost literally like what I was experiencing at that precise instant -- just hugely notable and surreal, if highly subjective, etc.

Lunchtime reading saw activity, but it was comparably small compared to that morning drive/church cluster, with only the slightest few little patternistic/characteristically lunchtime-type of super-subtle reading/thought/environmental one-word echoes and parallels and the like, again just those almost nonexistent "threshold"-type ones. These did however increase and graduate slightly but noticeably the end of the meal, as these sometimes do, best exemplified with a "resumed reading" one where I opened the book and the first word to be automatically/directly where I was looking was "feel," precisely as the radio randomly/singularly said "feel."

From there, thought/perceptual activity again cut off instantly and patternistically like lately, almost exactly like yesterday in fact, again with just the slightest bare threshold echoes and such here and there, followed by one sudden, singular standoutish one, this one coming when I pulled into the park on the way home and then, precisely as I signaled and began turning off to stop at the mailbox, the radio randomly/singularly sang out "pull up to the box," which is exactly what I was doing, ha ha (and it even went on to say "pull up at the box at 7:30," as to sort of have a minor little 37-mention tacked onto it).

Numbers were there, and overall more present and coherent than yesterday, with a moderate series of low-key traffic- and parking-lot plates through mid-afternoon and such, with some periods of silence in between. Few standouts:

> Classical "first plate seen after lunch being a 37," a 537-plate on a truck in the parking lot I came across when going to the car, and this one coming not in that "immediately after" fashion, being maybe a minute or so after I'd left the coffee shop, but pretty close, and still the very first plate I encountered after

> After a period of near silence for about an hour after lunch, had a sudden cluster of low-key plates at the market, probably 4-5 on the way in, followed by as many on the way out, plus even two of those "Compelled to pick up a random and inconvenient piece of litter, only to be led to 'staring' 37-plates I wouldn't have seen otherwise"-type ones, as to just be a collectively notable and surreal cluster

> Had several semi-conspicuous "everywhere" 37s today too, after something of an absence or downturn of these the last couple days, including several "37-covered random receipt"-type ones, though no overly notable ones, just a collectively notable uptick really

> Cool little 777-variant back-to-back combo, beginning with a classical "car passing me *just enough* so that its 37-plate 'peeks' into my line of sight," this one a truck with a 2777-plate this time, and then, seconds later, I Just Happened to pass a big roadside sign with a 7777-ending phone number on it -- a subtle and "fuzzy" sort of combo, but definitely in line with the recent feel/behavior of most recent incidents

Actually did have one single, standout echo this morning that I just now found the note for, an especially coherent "reading exactly what I was just thinking"-type one. It started when I had a big long random chain of thought that ended with thinking about traveling and how I'd have ot stop taking the mushroom supplements if I did, due to their seeming to bring illness/fallout/die-off-type stuff, but I felt some resistance to this since they seemed to be helping me and I didn't want to lose any progress I might be making, thus causing me to think something like "I'm attached to these mushroom supplements/a little too attached to the mushroom supplements" -- and then, on the very next line in the morning's freebie magazine, it mentioned, totally out of the blue and with nothing about it beforehand, how the chef being profiled was "obsessed with mushrooms," not only a perfect echo of more or less exactly what I'd been thinking about exactly then, but also, the line was at the top of a new paragraph the next column over, as to be out of direct view as I was reading, just making it that much more objective and surprising, etc.

7/30/18

Today was another of those that carried over the same basic pattern of late, but a very quiet version of it, and again seemingly in that "cooldown" period of a greater cycle as I've observed before.

Morning was absolutely silent, and this corresponding with some especially mind-numbing headsickness and depersonalization, very reflective in this regard. Same for morning drive. The first activity came at lunchtime reading, and though it came in that "immediately upon sitting down and opening the book and eating" fashion, it never really amounted to much, just a few scattered, mostly fuzzy/subjectively-notable-only one-word reading-type echoes as I tend to see at lunch, probably less than a dozen throughout the course of the entire meal, and again going 100% silent upon finishing. Did have two standoutish examples:

> It started with another long, random, 100% objectively traceable chain of absent thought, this one ending with my thinking of how long I'd been out in the sun and when I should stop and get in the shade, thus causing me to think something like "how much time in sun/can't stay out here too much longer/have to keep an eye on the time" -- a split second before I came to "the clock continued to tick" in the book, echoing again fuzzily but reasonably precisely the underlying sentiment of "time passing," etc, and made a little more notable by the fact that the sentence was spread across two lines, with the "con-" in "continued" hyphenated, as to make it that much less likely to be read ahead/peripherally (which didn't really matter anyhow, considering how accurately I could trace back my original thought to the objective circumstance of my having been out in the sun for some time, etc)

> Classical nearby stranger-type thought echo, beginning when I was inside towards the end of the meal and the woman sat next to me and I cleared half the table off for her and she put the phone on it, thus causing me to absently register its presence with a thought of something like "phone on the table I'd just cleared" -- perfectly synchronistic with a woman across the room saying loudly, "The table!" and again corresponding explicitly/intertwined with my specific mental vocalization of "the table," another that was just so damn surreal for all its "smallness"

And once again, the afternoon was pretty much entirely silent of thought/perceptual activity, even super-subtle stuff today from what I remember, and again corresponding with my generally braindead state then. But, again, had one standout exception:

It was another of those bizarre, somewhat unique, yet distinctly "synchronistic" echoes, beginning a couple minutes before I stopped at the market and there was that "Cry Pretty" song on the radio, which stuck in my head afterward, such that it was again looping through my head all through my time in the market and then still afterward, a half-hour or so later, when I came out to the parking lot and got back in the car and cut it on -- only to be met with that same song on the radio when I keyed the car, and not just that song, but it was playing at *exactly* the same part as the one looping through my mind, right at the chorus and the same notes -- *everything,* and with absolutely no way I could've been cued to it beforehand, with the car being off and the parking lot not having any radio or anything, totally silent and without even the noise of any passing cars or anything in which that radio station/song might've been playing at that time -- just utterly damn surreal/living-dream, etc.

Numbers were again more or less proportionally quiet, with these limited today exclusively to some very scattered, almost entirely low-key 37-plates in traffic and parking lots after lunch, and not even these by the time I'd started home. Couple standoutish ones:

> Another "immediately after lunch 37-plate" one, a 2375 on a parked truck that I passed on the way out, this one not quite as immediate as others, happening maybe a couple minutes after I'd left the shop, once I'd gotten in the car and started out from the parking lot, and it was the second plate I came in contact with rather than the first, but still patternistic and close enough to fit the pattern, unless it was just coincidence, etc

> Had a classical "random objective event causing me to come into contact with a 37-plate conspicuously" one at the market, when I was walking through the parking lot and yet another car started up directly beside me, thus causing me to alter my course as to stay visible and provide a buffer in case the driver didn't see me, thus causing me to turn a sharp right and thus come face-to-face with a "staring" 703-plate, and this coming in the midst of a loose little succession of other, fully passive low-key parked plates

> One sudden little active-leaning cluster right after leaving the other market toward the end of the day, beginning with one of those logistically perfect ones where the car in front of me slowed suddenly, and when I too slowed, the truck in the lane to my left passed me *just enough* so that its 3774-plate "peeked" directly into my line of sight, *just long enough* for me to register it -- and then, immediately on that one's heels, a 731-plate car came up behind the truck, with its plate also "invading" where I was already looking, replacing the first one -- and then, immediately after *that,* some other 37-plate car, two lanes over, "peeked" out from a crack that opened between the jockeying cars, also in that logistically perfect/*just far enough and just long enough for me to register it* fashion, ha ha

> Had another one today that I've seen several times lately and today have judged it enough to be an established pattern, another of those "seeing a quietly conspicuous 37-plate at the exact same place and placement multiple times" like several other of those "geographical" ones I've noted, this time at a restaurant that I pass when taking a certain route home, when there have probably been at least 5-6 times lately that a 37-plate on a car parked there has been patternistically "staring" at me at just the right angle, etc, to "flash" me as I turned past. At first I thought it might just be the same car, maybe from an employee at the place, but after seeing it happen repeatedly and paying attention, I can 100% say it's always different cars, simply parked conspicuously at that perfect angle, etc, and always with 37-plates of some manner -- another quasi-deja-vu-type thing

> And another classical "logistically perfect 37-plate 'peek'"-type one, when I was behind a group of two cars and the first stopped to turn off, thus "revealing" its previously invisible 307-plate as it did so, and again in that *just long enough for me to register it,* split-second-perfect manner

7/31/18

Today was even quieter than yesterday, and sort of erring from those super-subtle "fuzzy" incidents in what was there too, with just some scattered more-singular incidents and some number-repeat activity.

First activity came in the form of I think a little cluster of 2-3 subtle echoes at the end of the drive to lunch, with the only one I remember distinctly being when I approached an intersection and saw a man on a moped with the right blinker going, thus causing me to automatically register this with a thought of something like "Is he going to turn right and into my lane?" along with an accompanying visualization of him suddenly doing so and causing an accident -- precisely as "change direction" sang randomly/singularly from the radio, another subtle, fuzzy, one-dimensional echo of the basic sentiment crossing my mind at that precise instant, but still 100% patternistic all the same.

Lunchtime reading saw only a scattered few lunch-type "reading exactly what I was just objectively thinking"-type echoes and a few scattered parallels and recurrences only, and I think these only being maybe less than a dozen spread out through the whole meal, with pretty much a total silence for a long time after. Best example/standout of these from lunch: it happened just after I'd sat down and taken a couple bites and established myself on the patio table, thus causing me to relax fully and think distinctly about how I was now comfortable and enjoying myself -- a split second before I turned the page in the book and came to "I felt comfortable" at the top of the new page, another of those classical, 100% objective yet perfectly timed page-turn-type ones, where I expressly had that thought just before I'd turned the page, when the text was 100% invisible and without preamble/anything that would cue me to think that beforehand. Otherwise, about every other one was a super-subtle one-word one, if I remember right.

One other incident at lunch: a semi-standout classical "cashier quoting a 37-price"-type one, just before I finished up and left the cafe, when the cashier quoted a $7.34 price to a customer, though this one was made a little more notable by the fact that, in the entire hour that I'd been inside the place after coming in for my second course, this customer was the first and only, so that the meal counter and the cashier there had been totally silent beforehand, thus lending that "quietly conspicuous"/"intelligent" quality that's so common to the phenomenon.

From lunch, the only thought/perceptual activity was again just some extremely subtle, fuzzy, threshold-level echoes and parallels scattered here and there, before a total silence by the time I started home late afternoon. Best example here: when I pulled up at the corner on 27th and was struck by a sudden, new gap to my right there, due to the building that had been there as long as I can remember being torn down since I'd last been to this corner, thus causing me to think something like "looks so different/feels so different/that building had always been there and now it's now" -- precisely as "ain't it funny how life changes" sang from the radio, demonstrating perfectly the "fuzzy and subtle and subjective but perfectly timed/patternistic" nature that characterizes the super-subtle activity.

Numbers were a little more active today, but almost entirely in the form of a somewhat scattered low-key background static after-lunch plates while driving around, a decent number all total, and with a few semi-standout/"active" ones in the mix but none especially notable. Best standout was yet another "immediatley after lunch encountering a semi-conspicuous 37-plate after not seeing a single one previously," this one just a simple 375-plate on a parked truck that was angled conspicuously/perfectly/patternistically in my line of sight as I got in the car and left the market where I'd lunched, but still 100% consistent with the pattern of these (and why am I suddenly seeing these after-lunch plates now, after not having it at all that I remember for so long? symptomatic/indicative of some sort of underlying shift in the phenomenon?).
