    There’s no such thing as Time

    Time, what is it? One foot after the other, the clock ticking. Turning the pages on the calendar.

    A Meaningless Life

    A Meaningless Life

    I remember my mind dipping into existential thoughts as far back as 2001. By that time, I was eight years old.

    My Claircognizant Insights

    My Claircognizant Insights

    Claircognizance is my highest talent, because I get random insights about everything and anything. I get massive insights all the time that I wonder if this can be taught. I can put two and two together, that would serve me well as a psychic private investigator. My claircognizant said go get a sandwich, so I did. Then it said, go vote, and I did, but at another library branch outside of mine. I voted in the primary, because I strongly felt I had to. I have many an insight into problems, such as why I'm not getting a new job right now although I'm trying to find online writing content mills to work for like Textbroker.

    Don’t Believe Me? Just Watch!

    Don’t Believe Me? Just Watch!

    Grammy Award winner Bruno Mars has a great line in his hit song “Uptown Funk.” The line is “Don’t Believe Me? Just Watch!” This line makes me think of all the people who have been counted out, disregarded or marginalized because they didn’t follow the “established set of rules.” They have been called names like strange, odd, different, or a little off. A kinder statement is they are a free spirit.

    Galaxies, and Beyond.

    Galaxies, and Beyond.

    How beautiful the stars, different colors, of seeping darkness. Where does it all lead to? It is there in sight by a picture, or starlight. But how do we know this about this mass of intelligent, speculations?

    What Is the Hidden Significance Behind the March of Time?

    What Is the Hidden Significance Behind the March of Time?

    When observing the march of time, it is usually noted that time has a complex and thoroughly integrated scientific method which involves space-time. Ordinarily, it may simply tick away and eventually mark the closing numbers at the end of a phase, whatever that instance may be. We in the United States have a constant fixation on the continuously updating position of the clock. Rather than thinking primarily about a busy lifestyle that relies on keeping track of events and how they can fit in with each other, we can also become accustomed to a less standard mode of viewing time. While having our consciousness tuned into linear events, I think that we can tune into a new linear paradigm when observing the progression of the day.

    Creating a Link

    Creating a Link

    As a person with no particular background in science or math I've always been interested in Quantum Mechanics. The only problem was every time I tried do research or watch a video on it, I honestly couldn't even grasp the most basic concepts. Not because it was impossibly hard, but because anyone with a degree tends to dive straight into the mathematics of how they "believe" this sub atomic realm operates. I'm no expert but I think I may be able to break the basics down in a way that doesn't require you to be a particle physicist.

    Why My Clairvoyance Drives Me Crazy

    Why My Clairvoyance Drives Me Crazy

    Being a psychic has its perks in that you will never, ever, be surprised by a surprise party. It is very hard to surprise me because it takes me very little time to figure out who is doing that. Clairvoyants receive visions, symbols, and pictures. I get visions of stuff happening to the living, such as when somebody is busy attempting suicide. Oh, that power is just scary because I once saw somebody I knew stepping in front of a car. Let’s not go there, because the issue with this person is pretty crazy-making and this article is not about them, it is about how a clairvoyant perceives things.

    My Psychic Brain Didn’t Shut Up in the Past

    My Psychic Brain Didn’t Shut Up in the Past

    My brain confused me back when I didn’t know I had schizophrenia, much less was educated on what it was. If I could Quantum Leap-style time travel, I would go back to high school and get myself medication. Back then, I had a hard time with the off-switch. Not being on any medication whatsoever can cause brain damage. Alcohol can also cause brain damage. With schizophrenia, you are already born with structural differences in your anatomy because of the design of your brain since conception. Schizophrenia causes a loss of gray matter in the brain, as well as in the temporal and frontal lobes.
