An Urgent Update: Friday’s “Time Slip”

I wasn’t going to post this on the ‘free side’ as it was part of today’s double-issue of  Peoplenomics.  But, now that three people have also noticed that “time wasn’t working like usual” on Friday afternoon, this is one you maybe want to poll your friends about:  Did they notice any ‘time oddities’ Friday?

Here’s what I put on the subscriber Peoplenomics site Saturday morning:


Friday Afternoon’s Time Warp

Since 4 PM Friday, I’ve been walking around in utter, jaw-dropping shock.

Like the scene from the Rocky Picture Horror Show, we’ve just “Done the Time Warp, Again…

Enough adjectizing… here’s what happened.

Friday afternoon was like any other.

I finished work in the office (writing the Focus section for this morning) a bit earlier than usual.  I figured to be done around 3:30 PM Central, but instead, I was done at 10-minutes to 3 PM.

No big deal.  I just shut down the computer and went over to the house.  Elaine was in the master bathroom working on something, or other.

“Want me to bring you a glass of wine, dear?”

“Sure… just leave it on the table for me…”

I fixed her the wine (6-0z. in stemware) and fixed myself a double-shot of vodka over ice with lots of water.

So far, it was all routine.

I went out to what we call “The 180-room” (*where we can see more than 180-degrees of the property).

Elaine had gotten distracted on her way to join me – nothing unusual there…so far.

As I sat there, immersed in the view of trees and enjoying some down-time, I sipped on my vodka.  Made a few notes on a yellow pad on a clipboard.  We know enough to keep note-taking gear in reach so ideas don’t ride off without us.

Finally, after what felt like 10-minutes, or so, Elaine came in, sat down, sampled her wine…

Then, just as we were beginning our daily chit-chat, I held up my hand…

Hear that?  Justin’s coming…”

Justin’s our UPS driver.  Usually, he gets here around 4 PM, sometimes 5…it depends on his package count.

I left Elaine to relax, walked down through the kitchen to the back door.  There, I slipped on my loafers and headed down the steps from the screen porch to meet Justin, just as he killed the engine on the UPS truck.

We chatted for maybe 5-minutes.  We covered  quite a few things while he was in the back of the truck sorting the rest of his run.

He was really enjoying his new F-150 pick-up truck he’d purchased.  Told me Ford has a website app to where new owners could “name their truck” online.  He picked Big Blue.

A few Paul Bunyan  remarks and so chit-chat around other drivers who’d been on our route (“say Hi to Chicago for me,” for example).

He handed me my packages – a new video card driver for one of the SFF computers.

Then I remembered I had two small packages that were Amazon returns.  Could I walk up to the shop and ask him to drop them in the machinery back in Palestine?  It’d save us a trip to town…

“Sure, no problem…not done sorting yet…

I walked up to the shop – maybe 150 feet, got the packages…came back.  Justin took them, we talked for maybe another minute or two and he was off to finish his run.

Yeah, I figured it was after four by now…and a single guy doesn’t want a long weekend to get started without him…

He drove out the driveway, turned right and headed down the one-lane oil-sand road that leads to the larger (also one-lane) road that leads to a two-lane road and back to town.

I reversed my previous track, up the stairs, Kicked off the loafers at the back door (we don’t wear shoes in the house – keeps dirt down) and rejoined Elaine in the 180 Room.

She was almost done with her wine and my drink was low.

We talked for what seemed like 10-minutes, or so.  Elaine at one point got down on her knees to pick up a dried-out gardenia bloom she had used to brush Zeus the cat with,  the other night.  She’d tossed it by the door to kick it outside and just hadn’t gotten to that part.

We laughed about that.

“Want me to get you another one?”

Elaine had noticed that my drink was down in the “refill zone” and since her wine was gone…

“Sure – holiday weekend…living dangerously,” I laughed.

A few minutes later she was back…second round of drinks in hand.  We started discussing plans for the fall, yard work, and I brought up the topic of a certain tree in the front yard whose future was dim because Mr. Chainsaw didn’t want it getting big enough to send runners into the septic drain field.

Elaine argued the tree’s case convincingly.

About here, the wife of my neighbor up the hill drove home.  We both recognized her sharp-looking mid-size rice-burner.

We covered most of the days events and even talked about the weather a fair bit.  Would the hurricane jump into the Gulf?  Friday afternoon, that was still on the table, though it’s off this morning.

The weather was odd – it kept going to gray and overcast to brilliant blue and then back again.  Eventually, it sort of settled on gray and as we got worked our way down  toward the bottom of our second round of drinks by now, I asked Elaine.

“Want me to go start the noodle water?”

Friday at lunchtime, I had browned up a bunch of stew meat and a pot of real spaghetti had been simmering all day on the stove.  We generally like to eat around 5:30 or 6:00 and it felt clos to that.

“Sure, if you want to…or I can,”” she volunteered.

“Naw, I want to throw some more ice and water in my glass.”

At that, I arose and headed into the kitchen.  A large pot was filled and set on the stove on high.  It would be ready for the pasta in 15-minutes…

Then I glanced at the clock:

3:48 PM.

My jaw dropped. ,

No way in hell could it 3:48 PM.  I stood there reeling.

Then I recounted all that had happened in the last 48-minutes just as I laid them out here.

“Alexa:  Time?”

“The time is three-forty-nine PM.”


Somehow, Elaine and I had just lived 2+ hours in less than half that time.

I went back to the 180 Room.

“What time do you think it is?”

“Oh, I dunno…5:30, maybe 6:00.  Why?”

“It’s not even four-o’clock yet.”

She was shocked.



Major shifts in time-perception like this only happen a few times in a person’s life.

The last one of this magnitude happened in  the first week or August, or so, in 2001.

For a long time, I thought might be related to events at  Lawrence e Livermore Labs because the 2001 time-warp happened  when experiments in high-density magnetic fields were underway.

I’d thought that those might have something to do with the misperception of time.

Now, I’m pretty sure something else – bigger and much more worrisome is in play.

Our South San Francisco time warp experience happened about a month prior to 9/11.

My concern should be obvious now:  Since this was a time warp large enough to be noticed, is there something else big, ugly, scary, and shocking to the global consciousness just ahead?  Like in the next 30-60 days?>

When something shocking to people’s core happens, does it warp time, in advance of events?

Or, is it an artifact of symmetry around the .arrow of time that we don’t understand?

Maybe the point of maximal emotional impact of 9/11 was several weeks after the event.  Would symmetry or Reality require a “mirror” in the past on the opposite side of the time arrow?

Stay tuned.  All I can tell you as an aging watcher is that when a warp like this happened in the past, shocking events weren’t long following.

I hope that’s not the case this time, but since we have been keeping tabs on India-Kashmir and the prospects for Global Collapse, we don’t know exactly what to expect.

We do expect something massively impacting could be ahead.

Would anyone else, but the two of us notice.

If you noticed anything odd about how “time functioned” Friday, please send it along.

Thank you.

On the hard science note:  KI think it’s likely that Arthur Eddington’s view on operation of the Arrow of Time may over-state the asymmetry aspect.

It seems possible to me that time asymmetry may arise only because humans are trained (acculturation) to remembering the past and they don’t spend much time thinking about the future.

But that doesn’t prevent a kind of “print-through” into (as the Moody Blues might hint) Days of Future Past.

After considerable thought, I decided to go ahead and post this on Saturday afternoon – to see how many other people noticed something wrong with “How Time Worked” on Friday.

Does it mean a big even is very nearly here?  Well, like I said, for me, last time, late summer 2001 was about a month ahead of 9/11.  Sure hope nothing that big is pending.

In the British Express “India vs Pakistan: Modi’s hypersonic missile push risks World War 3 – ‘Deep crisis’” and on The Hill here in the US we read “Pakistan’s PM warns country getting closer to ‘military confrontation’ with India.”  All this as CBS headlines “”Pakistan leader Imran Khan warns of “genocide” as is India accused of torture in Kashmir.”

It doesn’t take an overly-active imagination to see the odds of war rising quickly.  And based on how regional nuclear conflict might play out (single device, everyone steps back aghast and worries about fallout) could this be what Friday’s “time slip” was hinting at?

Or something much larger?

We should have an answer around October first is the “arrow of time” print-through is what some of us experienced Friday afternoon.  This is serious enough to “copy the dream team” and look for data in people’s dream reports as they’re collected:

  1. Chugging double vodka’s can have that very effect. Are you sure about exactly how many you put down during the, er uh, outage?

    • lol
      Read Mark’s or our man in Houstons experiences out in the south bay – similar effect
      Bent time
      Scroll down from here

      And from another subscriber:

      “i was driving from las vegas to San Diego yesterday, i did alot of things in two towns along the way and was sure that around 2 1/2 hours had gone by and was shocked when it was only around 1 hour. Really an interesting situation, had to busy myself for another hour as i got to San Diego too early for my appointment. Thanks for bringing this subject up.

    • l picked up 5 prescriptions for me and my husband at the pharmacy on Aug. 30th, as they were closing on Saturday for the holiday weekend. They put each bottle in its own bag, with instruction sheets, invoices stapled to the top of bags. And all 5 smaller bags were put into 1 large one. I got home, took all 5 bottles out of their packaging ,read the labels, and placed them on the kitchen counter. I then threw the massive amount of bags and paper stuff in the (large)pantry trash can, as there was so much of it. l left the kitchen for about 10 minutes. l came back, and was going to put the pill bottles in the bathroom drawer. l noticed that there were only 4 bottles on the counter, so I opened the pantry door to get the paper bags out of the trash, thinking l had thrown a bottle away. But the large wad of white paper was gone! l looked in the other trash can, under the counter- everywhere. But still no bags or bottle of pills. I called the pharmacy to make sure that l had picked up 5 prescriptions, and they confirmed that l had done so. Now a missing bottle is one thing, but missing packaging and paperwork too?? When my husband got home he emptied ALL the downstairs trash cans, looking for the bags- found nothing. ????

      • Yes dear, YOU experienced the Time Slip I was referring to. Manifests different ways./ For some, time expands. I got 2-1/2 hours of activity done in 44 minutes. For others, there is a time contraction. You can’t get anything done – it’s like the clock is spinning twice as fast. For others, keys disappear – only to reappear a week or two later in a totally impossible place.
        Only question for you is what time zone are you in? That would be interesting for reasons that will be revealed in Peoplenomics this weekend in Time Machine Engineering Notes…

  2. I can’t say we had a “time-stretch” yesterday, but I’m guessing you’re on Central time, so your 3 PM would be our 1PM and the wife likes to watch “Days of our lives” (I call it “Dazed & confused” to irk her) and as I recall yesterday she waited until about 1:30 to watch on DVR and skip the commercials. As I remember it didn’t seem like it took that long for her to finish watching, because by about 2 she had completed watching the show, which is a good 42 mins sans spot breaks.

  3. Same here. Got a cell phone call from the wife at 3:15 pm Friday asking if I could go over to the daughter’s house and watch the grandkids for a while until the son-in-law gets home from work while they go to a Baseball game. Be there by 6 she said. It’s a 10-minute drive.

    I am known to get phased in on a project and lose track of time but not this time. I directly started walking over the shop to close the doors and lock the tools up. 50 feet from where I was when the call came in. I had not even gotten there yet when the phone text message alert starts beeping from my daughter and wife. Where are you? It could not have even been a minute in my mind anyway since the original call. It was 5:45 pm.

    Where in the hell did the last 2 1/2 hours go?

    • Since you are in Missouri – you are same time zone as us



  4. I can confirm that. Left work around 1400, ran a few errands in the rain and got home around 1500. Did a whole bunch of stuff around the house and figured it was after 1800 easy. Clock said 1630.

    I was “off” the rest of the evening. Strange…

    • I had my normal workout start at 0800 and yesterdays workout is usually 90 minutes with a 30 minute cool down swim. I left the gym around 0900-0915. I don’t know how because I followed my workout to the t. It kinda made my day weird. Following that, I went to a winery with some friends and we left our meet up spot at 2000. Time of travel is usually 10-15 minutes drive time. We ordered our wine and food at 2007. We didn’t speed or anything as our driver always adheres to speed limits. The day was definitely messed up and felt very off. I also felt insanely exhausted too.

  5. I cannot add anything to Friday about time shift, but I seem to have them often and until George brought up the subject, I thought that I was alone having time problems. Hope this is not a prelude to a biggie.

  6. Are you aware a geomagnetic storm was happening at the time you noted and still is. Any influence on us all in the dream time???????

  7. I didn’t notice a time slip.. but for the past few days I have had a lot of woo woo things going on.. like missing stuff looking everywhere for it.. the dust pan.. it clips to the broom .. it is always clipped to the broom.. It wasn’t there.. looked everywhere.. I thought the wife used it someplace.. nope.. went out to the garage brought mine in from there.. went to sweep the dirt into the dust pan.. the dust pan was fixed on the broom where it always is..
    and other small things.. similar.. drove me nuts the past couple of days..
    interesting enough though….

    A new seismic device developed by CERN and JINR is now being tested at the Advanced Virgo detector

    30 AUGUST, 2019

    guess what time…..and they just installed a bunch of new magnets… hmm.. makes you wonder huh…

    I read a paper once.. about a group that was able to transfer a molecule to a remote spot..

    • Happy new year to you as well..

      You use the word infidel do realize that depending on your religious beliefs each and every one of us can be labeled infidels lol lol..

      Rig Veda is I believe the oldest texts that are the base of all religions.. ( highly debatable)
      And the Quran ( just like the bible depending on translation you are using ) is I believe based on the Torah lol lol lol
      I am not allowed to talk debated subjects here at home. I save those conversations…

  8. I experienced something like I have never before. It wasn’t a time warp but like waves of energy passing through me. I was standing barefoot on my kitchen floor looking out balcony door. I don’t know what earthquake feels like, so my first thought was that this might be one. I checked the floor, walls, road outside for any movement , but there was none. I wasn’t hungry or under influence of any kind. It lasted less than a minute, but it was weird enough for me to look at the clock. 2:18 pm. est.

  9. George, not sure about energy waves or temporal displacements they may affect perceptions, but I have felt a timeline shifts in recent months. I was not sure exactly happened, I just knew I was in a different place than I should be. As if time travel had caused a different future.

  10. Wow. Glad I read your site this morning. I can certainly relate. My husband and I had a time slip or whatever you call it last week. We were certain it was around 1:30 pm. However, clock read 3:30 pm. We discussed how weird it was and where did the time go?

    Had a woo woo on Thursday. My husband got the mail and brought a piece of mail I was expecting. He handed me the envelope. I brought the envelope outside on the back porch. Opened the envelope, read the single page letter and put it back in the envelope. Went back in house into the kitchen with envelope in hand and said to hubby about the letter and placed the envelope on the kitchen counter. Hubby saw me do this.

    About 10 minutes later hubby wants to read the letter and its not on kitchen counter. He asked where did I put the letter? I said it was on the counter. He saw me put it there. We looked around. No letter? I looked in garbage which had one napkin in it. Finally I went back outside to porch and there is the letter inside envelope. I know I brought it in. My husband saw me bring it in. What the heck? Woo woo.

    That same night went up to bed. Hubby downstairs watching t.v I shut three curtains in my room as I do every night. Turn lights off in room and lay there. It took me a long time to fall to sleep and two of the windows are directly in front of me. I remember staring at both windows that night before dosing off. All window curtains were closed. When I woke up in morning one of the window curtains in front of my bed was OPEN. Hubby slept on couch downstairs so he didn’t open. Those curtains were all shut when I fell to sleep. Woo woo again!

    All week didn’t sleep well either. Strange week for sure.

  11. George, this is not exactly like your time woo-woo, but Fri afternoon Aug 30 an “electronic cone of silence” inexplicably surrounded me. Multiple people failed to reach me via multiple channels, regarding a family medical emergency. Emails from two different people — timestamped 3:38pm & 4:24pm (EDT) — failed to load in my inbox until the next day’s computer startup. One landline phone call, approx. 4pm, went to the all-in-one printer as if it were an inbound fax….a subsequent call to a different landline went straight to voicemail and I neither heard the inbound message nor saw the message light. Oddly, nobody attempted to dial my cellphone– which normally would be the first choice. The “cone of silence” lifted around 7:48 pm, after which calls and texts were flying fast & furious…all emails/phones/texts since then have continued to arrive in real time, no delays. Also worth noting: from maybe 3:30 to 4:30/5pm, my brain was just…checked out/totally unfocused. So whatever strangeness happened Friday aft, I do not know, but the whole time everything just felt really “off.”.

  12. George,

    I experienced similar strangeness on Friday in the 1500 time block. I am south of Houston for the time working.

    I was on the phone with an HVAC wholesaler trying to get a quote together for a system I need for a couple of projects underway. I know that I was on the phone for well over an hour… I had a parts run I had to make before 1700 for a family member. That said, there was a massive email “hiccup” in this window. Nothing was coming through. My sales rep even confirmed his quotes left!

    A good 20 minutes passed and I spoke with my wife and kids and a client and then email was working again… looked at the clock 1551! This communication stuff was over an hour, more like hour and a half. The kicker for me was the part run… 15 min drive in 7 mins.
    Tl;dr: finally got stuff done and was wiped out for the entire next day. Still a bit out of sorts.
    Thanks for sharing. Thoughts on relation to Dorian’s progression amongst others things?

  13. It has to do with the weathercock.
    Yes time manipulation for the purpose of changing the weather.
    We are missing the collapse.
    So that the universal agenda can take place where Trump can be re-elected.
    There was a premium paid that’s inconsiderable.
    so more than a mouthful is wild and semi-domesticated .there is an island ,do you remember or have you forgotten that once the evil is exposed permeated that Island then a new island will come where no money no crime no hatred no evil and if you skulk you’ll miss it.

    May all beings be lovingly fulfilled. May all beings be financially fulfilled. May all beings be readily fulfilled. Sounds a little like heaven on Earth instead of having to die to experience it

    • All of which verges of Utopian unless you can explain who and precisely how the weather is manipulated by time. Although, in fairness, it was within 24-hours that the track of dorian changes.
      So, the question must be answered, is the time-wonk and the wind shift related, but if yes, then by whom and by howm?

      • With the few at the top of the pyramid ,how’s the world works,
        we look at the few at the top of the pyramid at every corporate structure,
        Whether it’s dogs or whether its ownership real estate or ownership of money,
        Weather its ownership of churches countries water waterways planets and other spheres and fears,
        I’m a break-up paranormal, fills the holes of present cosmology.
        There is more out there then that most would admit.
        I do not want to come back to another prison body I want the ability to remove myself from this Perpetual amnesia.

  14. Now that you mention time anomalies, we’ll all second guess the time.

    Like the Simpson’s, but different.

  15. George, if memory serves, Andy made a prediction about a big quake in So Cal on or about Oct 17. Fits your window.

    • But, because of language and how it is “pictorial” on the one hand and “emotional” on the other, it could be a “quake of sensibilities” or a Richter GROUND SHAKING EVENT. Recall 9/11 was a “ground changer” as well…

      • The Christian apocalyptic seers are worrying about financial quakes over at the
        Ray Dalio has made public comments regarding an upcoming economic transition from boom to bust along the lines of the 1930’s period. The reporter commenting on Dalio’s statements didn’t appear to understand the real gist of what Dalio was saying. Dalio’s discussion reminded me of commentary by Martin Weiss’s father Irving on the depression era economic collapse sequence of events, and the transition to what is now called credit deflation.
        I’m thinking that all the weirdness being reported could be consistent with a gathering large-scale social mood reversal.
        I saw a report that a mass shooter in Odessa this weekend had just lost his job. Massive insider equity sell-offs in August are being reported, and mass lay-offs are back in the news.
        I’m still mulling over the temporal anomaly meme. But emotional quakes in October, yeah, I’ll buy that one. Is this weekend the first notable foreshock?

      • No argument here, George. I am just pointing to a possible ‘when’ for whatever the event could be. Again, if I recall correctly, Andy also talked about the Indy-Pak War kicking off late December. Could be a time slip earlier because the impact is bigger.

  16. George,

    4:15PM PST, Aug 30. Tucson, AZ.
    Seemed like 15 minutes of normal activity stretched out 2 hours. Kept looking at the clock and wondering why is this taking so long. Very strange. My spidey sense agress with “l—–” above.

    “I’m thinking that all the weirdness being reported could be consistent with a gathering large-scale social mood reversal.”

    My woo-woo of August 20 came in a dream. Got up wrote it down. I’m not sure I have the correct language but it’s a collapse of social restraints. They go to zero and all manner of negative, fear-based processes leap into full view. My note was”90 days to implosion” which would make T’day Day Zero.

    But definite time warp.

  17. was warned of a major psyche shift for aug.30 by an astrologer.said it was to be the most important day of 2019

    • I came to terms with some serious stuff regarding potential relationships and overall life organization on Friday. Sick as a dog until I made the decisions and took steps forward.

  18. Sat, Mar 23, 9:08 AM

    The most important day of the year in 2019. New moon in Virgo August 2019. This is the date of a psychological shift of MAJOR proportions.

  19. Charting time slips

    You seem to have a fair range of reports with, if I’m understanding them correctly, time speeding up as well as slowing down.
    My question is, can you chart them as to affect observed and location?
    Maybe map out an epicenter?

  20. George,

    Yes there was a time “slowdown” as I call them. I felt it from shortly before noon to 1 on the west coast. I kept watching the clock, working the while, and amazed it was moving so slow. There are also time “speedups” like lost time, but it’s really just time moving fast. They tend to be in balance.

    • Had a friend just tell me that on Friday afternoon the weather channel had a two hour void in satallite transmission of Dorian. The announcers made a big deal of how they had to reconstruct the missing imaging and how that has never occurred before. Recall a previous piece of fiction you wrote several years back describing a similar time slip cause by a secret space vehicle entering hyperdrive on its way to destroy a dangerous comet! Best buckle up!

  21. Friday, Aug 30th was a bit odd in Columbia, Missouri. I decided to leave the office at 3:00 PM since things were eerily quiet, and the holiday weekend was at hand. But on the way home, I stopped at the Post Office, the Bank, and the grocery store–three stops that would normally take about 50 minutes. Finally arriving at the house and looked at the clock–3:25 PM!! I thought that’s strange, but didn’t think much more about it–until I read your experience.

  22. Interesting. Can’t add anything to the subject for now except to say that this sort of thing is not at all unusual for me. (Doesn’t it happen to everyone?)
    Either time slows or speeds. Will have to start making notes.

    Now will the gremlins, or whoever, please put that ring of antique keys back where they found it? This is getting old.
