Rarity#bestpony → Rarity!.4PK7yxdII

If you want a tripcode containing specific words, you can download a program designed to search for tripcodes, such as Tripcode Explorer.

Email?

Entering an e-mail is optional.

There are also code words you can enter here which perform certain actions when you submit your post.

  • sage — lets you post without bumping a thread.
  • nonoko — uses the original post behavior to redirect to the board index.

These can be used at the same time as an e-mail address by typing ‹email›#‹action›.

You can also use Skype names in place of an e-mail. The notation is the same as a link to a username on skype itself, which is skype:‹username›

Does anyone here believe in the paranormal?

Have any weird or explainable experiences or encounters?

Like spooky scary aesthetics in movies/games/books?

One time in fourth grade, I swung a bat at a baseball that was coming at me, and actually properly hit it.

Yeah, I use cards to tell peoples' fortunes, and they pay me.
I believe that I help people, but I don't believe I'm doing it by being psychic. They always say I get it right, but honestly, I think they just relate the story the cards tell me to their life and draw their own conclusions on how they can now help themselves.

I don't.

No. Most I hear from others can be chocked up to problems in human perception or can't be proven or disproven like established dogma. Believing human senses and perception are infallible is for dumbs.

Yes i do actually. The most interesting parts of scary stories is the evaluation of priorities. Whether you would save yourself or try to help others, etc.

Nowadays I mainly just have intuitions where something will just sorta pop in my head. idk, I try not to make strong decisions on non-rational basis' but I find that intuitions can help guide your fact finding or how you want to proceed in a conversation.

Examples would be stuff like I had a patient recently who had just gotten back from jail and she sorta shuddered with this look in her eye while saying "I really hate jail" It kinda flashed in my head that something sexual happened to her in jail.

A stronger example would be I had a patient who was stroked out and alzheimered so the only words she could say was repeating "No, no, no, no, no, no." I was helping her in her bed on the first night in the nursing home and she had seemed sorta agitated. She started up with the nos and idk, her tone of voice just flashed into my head "She doesn't know where she is and she's scared." upon which I explained where she is, she lives closer to her daughter now who can visit her and that we're here to help her, etc. Lady seemed to be a lot calmer after that and she managed to sleep through the night.

But intuition isn't paranormal. Unless you're dumb. Then everything can be paranormal, thanks to the twin magic of the two great goddesses of human gullibility : Confer Meishun Byas and Saians Ofdegaps.

I was referring to the tendency of the human mind to fill the gaps in our knowledge with...uh...whatever the fuck we want, actually, that's the beauty of it. Anything we can put in there, we will, and have.

The problem being that, if we don't know...we don't know. We can't just make shit up. Yet we do. This is why our sun is drawn by a guy in a carriage, because why not, I guess ?

Well my aunt thinks I have some kind of psychic ability but I feel like there must be a more rational explanation.

Indeed true, you certainly don't say for sure.
Why do you seem so unsure ? Intuition is...a very simple concept to understand. There's no reason to introduce the paranormal into the mix. Yes it's a bit difficult to describe, but then again, what brain process isn't difficult to talk about ?
How could "psychic powers" make more sense than a very simple, and humble, "Subconscious thought processes" ?

No, I don't believe in them.

NOPE

>Like spooky scary aesthetics in movies/games/books?


I think unnerving things and atmospheres can be done really well. But I don't like the negativity and cruelty usually associated with horror.

Nothing really sticks out.

Not as deeply as when I was a kid, but yes.

>Have any weird or explainable experiences or encounters?


Nah. But I'm the only one in the family that doesn't have at least one ghost or UFO encounter story, so maybe it's just a matter of time.

>Like spooky scary aesthetics in movies/games/books?


As with any aesthetic, I really like it when it's done well.

The Shaft alley of every Ship is haunted. DC2 on last boat said that the USS Shiloh was haunted as fuck. Some of the Enginemen and old MPA claim that current boat is haunted, and that they see stuff near switchboard 1.
