Coping: With Another “Reality Shift”

We don’t get too deeply into woo-woo reports here lately for a number of reasons.  When a person begins talking about “jumping timelines” and such, heads cock and people look askance…

Sadly, when the genuinely inexplicable events happen, people tend to write the website off as “Naw, that Ure dude’s fulla crap…”  Which may be true, but let’s not rule out the improbable.  Second point is that good – easy to document – woo-woo doesn’t happen every day.

But when is does?  OMG!   Do I have a story for you!

(continues below)


It started Sunday morning.

I’d gotten up at the crack of dawn for coffee and to get ready to “take on the projects.

One of them involved running a 240 volt line to an outdoor box for my new plasma cutter, a Lotos LTP4000D from Amazon.  (Everything but Elaine and Zeus the Cat are from Amazon or the ‘Fat Dog’ package store….but I digress.)

Before nailing down the box wiring I wanted to to have one more look at the wiring for the Lotos LTP4000D.  There were several online references and the unit can be wired 120 or 240 volt.

As I do with most tools, I had already downloaded the manual prior to buying and saved it in the regular download directory. Plus, a copy was put on the desktop because I wasn’t done with the installation.

Easy to follow, right?

But, then a strange thing happened:  The .PDF of the manual was nowhere to be found.  It’s like it never existed. 

I spent about 10-minutes trying to find the manual necause event now I’m certain it was downloaded. I’d read it!

That’s pretty damn strange… One of the other computers, perhaps?” said the little voice in my head. No.

Maybe I’m just slightly nuts.  My age…well, let’s say an occasional mental error is not out of the realm possibilities….if you know what I mean!

The next step was logical.  I hit the Lotos website and went looking for the LTP4000D manual.

Nothing was found.

BUT!  What I DID find was there was a LT3500 model!  It didn’t have the pilot arc feature, though.

With no sign of the 4000D models, I noticed the LTP5000D.

The LTP5000D has slightly better specs than the LTP4000D I swear to you that I purchased.  The difference was in duty cycle:  60% for the LTP5000D and the one I bought I remember distinctly as a 40% duty cycle.

Up to this point, the jumping from one of the Many Worlds Interpretations of quantum mechanics had not occurred to me yet. The notion that we have jumped to a different time-line is NOT the first thing you go-to when a slightly odd thing happens.

Instead, I was already plotting how to return how to return the LTP4000D to Amazon (since I hadn’t used it) and upgrade to the 5000D.

Just to compare the differences, having just looked at the 5000D manual, wandered into the shop to look at the LTP4000D.  I wanted to take another look at the front panel. it was different.

Again, I swear the 4000D had a small 3-inch LCD display on it.

“Had” because as I lifted the plastic cover off the plasma cutter, you could have pushed me over with a feather:  There sat a Lotos LTP5000D – and it did NOT have the LCD display!

“Oh, no, not more woo-woo!”  By now, slow as I am, I was reluctantly led to the idea that somewhere in the past couple of weeks, we’ve had a “time slip.

I don’t know how it works, but it’s likely behind the Mandela Effect and a lot of other strangeness reported by readers of the web all over the world..

I wanted to begin this morning by describing the experience which is one of the weirder in my life.

We run across this kind of thing all the time…you may remember the case reported by a reader recently who had a friend’s car (pickup) changed color from what he remembered for a very long time.

Not only that, but all his (the reader’s) friends had the same memory of the other color vehicle, as well.

All of which builds the case that something, undocumented is going on with the clockworks of reality.

The rest of the day proceeded a bit oddly.  Things Sunday seemed to take twice as long for some reason I can’t pin that on this particular Many World jumping the time track. If you’re used to one working speed and suddenly things are happening in “half-time” it does come to your attention.

If it’s a practical joke, I’d like to thank the Universe for the upgrade to the 5000D but please, add an LCD on the next reality jump, please?

Then Things Got Strange

Like this wasn’t?

No, indeed.  This is the classic “But wait! There’s more!” part.

I called it quits about 4 PM and went over to the house to have the afternoon toddy with Elaine.

I told her the story, just as recounted above.  By the time I was through, her eyes were wide.

“Why the odd look?”

Because I just had a similar event yesterday!

She then proceeded to tell me the details of her encounter with whatever-it-was that happened late last week:

You remember that square clear plastic box that I keep Q-Tips and cotton pads in?”

Sure.  About 3-1/2-inch cube with a square chrome looking top to it?  Yeah, of course.  Why?”

Well, I found it in a weird place.  I lives in my bathroom on the counter, right?

I just nodded…

Well, it was in a different room…which I thought was odd.  But here’s the REALLY weird part:  It was full of water!”

“It was WHAT????”

Yeah.  I had to through out about 2-dozen Q-Tips and a half0dozen cotton pads because they were wet – ruined ’em.”

“Well, I’ll be damned.”

The rest of an hour was spent going over every detail of each of our run-ins with this “reality jump” we could think of.  Disconcerting as hell.

A couple of good “sciencely” questions did come out of our discussion that are worth sharing.

The first is that when such “divisions to a different multiverse” happen (under the Many World’s Interpretation of quantum mechanics) they seem to be subtle.  Elaine noticed the odd placement of the Q-Tip box…and that it was full of water.  But because of her flow of work and such, she didn’t bring it to my attention at the time.

Nor, did I mention my experience with the plasma rig.

So, whatever the phenomenon is that causes this, it is subtle and right down in the noise around the perception threshold.

Second thing is she didn’t bother testing or tasting the water.  I’m intrigued by whether it was salt water or fresh?  We’ll never know.

Third item is that this took place just about the time the volcano was popping off in Hawaii.  As I documented in my book Dimensions Next Door: Hacking Space-time, there are many phenomena that seem to cluster along fault lines.  Seneca Guns, also known as skyquakes, for example.

The fourth, and final point, is that we speculated a while on how something like an MWI reality-jump might be inclined to occur between major population areas.

This is a subtle phenomenon, so the fewer people that notice, the better it stays hidden.  In big, busy, noise, distracting urban settings, people are not as likely to see occasional oddities as meaningful.  They get buried in “local noise.”

Out here in the woods?  If something isn’t precisely where we left it, we go looking for the culprit.  Maybe a pack rat or raccoon…  Pack rats are notorious for being attracted to shiny objects, like the smaller chrome-plated tools.  Our late neighbor across the road found several small wrenches in a pack rat nest.

The temporal adjacency to the Hawaii event raises the idea that massive magma movement may generate “earth electricity” to high-enough potentials that an expectation-driven reality-jump might take place.

Or, not.

Local observations suggest to us that this about be an auspicious time to wonder if anyone else has had a run-in with woo-woo of the bent-reality sort in the past week, or so?

  1. Tax I had a weird thing happen yesterday. I returned something and the money I got back was $43.99. Soni gave the guy a penny and got $44.00 back. I drove down 3 blocks to the smoke shop and pulled the money out of my wallet and I had $64. Now I know there was no extra $20 in there. So I went back to the place to give them back the extra $20 and they were closed. But the manger was checking the till. I said, you guys have me an extra $20. And I waved the money. He said, give us a min and we are counting the till.

    He came back and said, no our till counted exact. We didnt give you an extra $20. I said that is odd. So I showed him the money they gave me. I just left here less than 5 min ago. I said see three $20 bills and 4 $1.00 bills. Except now I had $24 the other two $20’s were gone. I had just counted them in front of the store and the money never left my hand. I was like what the heck. So we looked around to see if I dropped the other two $20 bills. Nope. No where to be seen. He said if they find them they will call me.

    So I get back to the smoke shop and I go in same $24 still in my hand. Never left my hand. I get 2 packs of smoked and guess what when I give the man the money at the smoke shop he says, you gave me $64, that’s $40 too much. I thinking what the hell?

    So bbn I get out to my pick up, but the extra $40 in my wallet and secure it in the secret compartment. Hit he gym and on the way home when I get to my house grab my wallet lol in side and now there is just a single $20 bill and the change from the smoke shop..

    So I ended up with the exact amount of money I was supposed to have. Lol

  2. Now Ure Talking…Don’t U have to admit U feel So much better when U write about this stuff, than when U get Ure panties all in a bunch, lashing out at them Lefties and Climanator Fakers

  3. Oh s—t yes! And bothering the h—l out of me.

    Saturday afternoon left new home in rural area subdivision to go shopping with housemate. Left new books of checks (3) with my new bank on top of desk wrapped in blue plastic checkbook holder all held with a rubber band.

    Came back in less than two hours. Did other things for awhile when I got back. Went to write a utility bill check. Undid the rubber band and pulled out the books of checks and register. Dog barked at something and I went to quiet him down, then attended to something in the kitchen.

    When I got back to my desk 20 minutes or so later THERE WERE ONLY TWO BOOKS OF CHECKS.

    The first book in the series was nowhere to be found.

    I looked all over the room, the desk drawers, and retraced my steps. Multiple times. Looked all over the kitchen, bathroom, any room I had been in.

    Finally had the thought they could have been stolen while we were out. (But on a Saturday afternoon with lots of neighbors out and about right across the street?) Well, we have not yet changed the locks on the place, maybe someone with a key walked right in.

    Finally told housemate, and he said he had had funny feeling about break-in before we left. I also had funny feeling about leaving checks out in plain sight. Not something I commonly do.

    Let go of the situation allowing intuition to work on Sunday. Checks still did not turn up. Reported missing checks to bank Monday and put stop payment on the series.

    Earlier in the week was weird as well. Post Office in this rural area was notifying sender on multiple packages that they attempted delivery and left a notice. Not so. No notice, and no attempted delivery – I was home. They also quit delivering all mail.

    Finally went to Post Office where they were expecting us. Said the carrier had gotten confused about who lived there so they just did what they did and figured we would be in eventually to straighten it out (What the …!)

    We had received mail and packages normally for a few weeks AND I had been to that Post Office and filled out a card defining who lived at our address about three weeks ago.

    So, I had several days of what seemed like bad Mercury retrograde experiences —but it is not MercRx. In fact, I don’t usually have much problem with Merc Rx.

    • Let us know when the checks show up. M y intuition is they will, but in some unexpected place. Check the dog house.

      • I have been associated with woo-woo groups for years. I have heard/read lots of missing items stories. If the item ever turns up again it is usually in one of two ways: In an unexpected place where it should not be; or, in an obvious place that has been searched a dozen times.

        Missing stuff is an extreme personal rarity. Just does not happen with me. I don’t lose things.

        If nothing else, the incident put us on notice to get the locks changed.

        [There is no outside dog house. Cute little ankle biter lives inside].

      • A study from the University of Adelaide, in which researchers found that taking vitamin B6 helped people recall their dreams.

        The randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study included 100 participants who took 240mg of vitamin B6 immediately before bed for five consecutive nights.

        “Our results show that taking vitamin B6 improved people’s ability to recall dreams compared to a placebo,” says research author Dr. Denholm Aspy, from the University’s School of Psychology.

  4. Similar event last Sunday. I play Powerball weekly and record the next jackpot size and cash payout each time on a spread sheet. On Sunday I checked for winning numbers, none of course. But when I went to record the next payout, the amount was slightly less than the last one. Either Powerball had a time shift, or I did. Could not have been a typo.

  5. Mr. G.Ure, Certainly a strange (weird) situation with the plasma cutter. One missing part of the story: what did your Amazon order say you purchase and what was shipped? Inquiring Minds want to know,
    I know I would to myself in a similar situation, “What the h*ll is going on here”
    Thank you


  6. George,

    I have to tell you that whatever you experienced may have been more widespread than you realized.

    Last week, I mean the WHOLE week, seemed somehow ‘off’. I mean like time was behaving strangely. I couldn’t pin it down, exactly, but I did mention the strange feeling to my wife and to a couple of coworkers. Oddly enough everyone that I mentioned it to also confirmed this odd ‘something-is-not-right feeling’ last week.

    So, right there with ya’, buddy. You ain’t crazy…or least not any crazier than the rest of us.


    • Things have felt off a while here too. Seeming to improve But 1 incident 2 days ago still happening. Have a tracker placed under gold-digger-new-Stepmom’s car to document her misbehavior. Must be charged. After couple weeks of installation, software says Tracker registering low 30% charge but as I sent employee to check it I had to log out. Couple seconds later log in showed 100% & continues at 100%. Maybe woo involves Numbers as other commentators lost/found money, checks, lottery tickets & info.

  7. Had the same thing happen to me….I found a 1/2 gallon of whole milk in the fridge where my Almond milk should have been. I do not buy normal milk and have never bought it, since I am allergic to the protein. How it got there is still a mystery.

  8. A couple of months ago we had to buy a new washing machine. I had the idea of spending $400. Since there are only 2 of us, we don’t need all the bells & whistles. I passed on the machine with the stainless steel tub, fabric softener dispenser, & high efficiency agitator & spent $408 with tax, hoses & delivery. The wife didn’t seem to mind & she does the laundry.

    When the washer was delivered, the guy checked it over & there was a small dent on the lower front, but the paint wasn’t chipped. He asked me if I wanted another one. I said forget it because the grandkids will probably add matching dents since the laundry room is off the kitchen & by the back door.

    After he installed it, my wife started a load of wash since we had been out of a washer & it piled up. She called me over & asked, is this the model we bought? It had the stainless steel tub, fabric softener dispenser, & high efficiency agitator.

    I chalked it off to good fortune, or the red neck saying “s__t happens”. Good things happen to people who are oblivious.

  9. I worked on Sunday, but was really looking forward to the Warriors game..I looked at my phone and went to the CBS sports app to check the start time of the game. It said the game started at 3:30. The game was in New Orleans, so it made sense that it would be 5:30 New Orleans time. My time settings on my apps are all on PST, so i planned my day around it. About 1:30, I went to check on the score of the Giants baseball game on the same CBS app and the Warriors game was in the 2nd quarter. It started at 12:30.

    The 3:30 game time I saw would have been a east coast start time, which makes no sense. Even if the app was defaulting to the New Orleans start time, the time would have said 2:30, not 3:30. I checked my settings in the CBS sports app and every game was on PST time. Could have been a glitch in the app…but given your experience on Sunday..I had to mention.

  10. Friday around noon (Eastern) I bought a Powerball ticket for the next day’s drawing. Came home, placed the ticket in a glass candleholder on the center of my coffee table. Saturday evening I was amused to see the cat delicately sniffing the edge of the ticket, as he prowled the coffee table. Didn’t remember till this morning to check the numbers. You guessed it: the ticket is just — not there. Not in candleholder, nor on coffeetable, nor on floor, nor in any other room. Waiting to see if/when/where it may show up again.

  11. Yeah, hit me about your taste Sunni or testing your water yesterday I went shopping and bought a tester kit and try the water that comes from the spring and it’s low on the pH added and then tried it and it changed it so I took three different readings on the pH scale.

    So now when I drink water from my Berkey Water Filter I add a Eyedropper load into the glass proportionally and now the water does not hurt my esophagus as it did before

  12. And about the woo thing I follow a whole bunch of Psychics and and remote viewers and mediums and there was one I got into and I was following and all the sudden she changed mid-course she went to like and then he says I knew that she had entered into the dark rim of spirits and souls and then belief systems.

    I have been able to see things that scare me and when it does I counteract by saying out loud or this thinking may all beings be lovingly for Phil’s so be it and the thing that’s there keeping me from going to sleep is the most evilest thing you can think of and then when I say that it turns into something more recognizable in a good way and then eventually it becomes a white cloud with peace and come serenity and then a white light

    • But remember when you die and you go to the white light it wipes your memory out your spirit Soul memory and then you’re reincarnated as a baby but if you’re lucky to not get all of it wiped out you wake up and you’re like a genius at 2-3 years old you know

      • meditation (and lucid dreaming) are (in part) practice for the moment of death so that you are able to move thru that experience skillfully rather than reactive confusion!

  13. The 60″ cloth measuring tape had been missing for two weeks. Looked everywhere for it and discovered it yesterday nestled inside the vacuum canister. Still shaking my head over it.

  14. Sooooo, next step as the author of ones own phenomenal world is to shape the next present moment (or day) to the specification you lay down as an “intention” in the then present moment, not as can act of will, but as a consequence of perception! Something like that anyway. You can’t create a Q-tip as an act of will, but you can perceive the assemblage of dense energy as Q-tip. The dense energy is fungible as perceived, because it was never a Q-tip (per se) to begin with.

  15. Two instances of similar woo-woo:

    1. Daughter and I are looking for her favorite matchbox car. Over the course of an hour the entire apartment was turned upside down. A very thorough investigation, to be sure. The next day I walk into my living room to find the car obviously visible on an empty shelf under my coffee table. That part of the living room had been ground zero for the search the previous day.

    2. My daughter and I visited Disney World. A liquid filled souvenir was purchased. One of those things that is filled with an oil/water solution. The oil creates small, colored “balls” within the water that float down and make wheels spin. Due to the amount of liquid in the souvenir, it was not suitable for plane travel. We had to leave it at my grandparents house to be shipped to us at a later date.

    Upon later receipt of the souvenir that had been mailed to us, daughter and I both immediately remarked that the color of the oil “balls” had changed from blue to purple. Maybe something happened during shipping that changed the color of the oil? It remains a mystery.

  16. I’ve felt for a while that we’re living in the world(s) of Fringe, with an overactive Adjustment Bureau.

    I suspect that things will continue to get less stable. Perhaps that’s the really big secret that TPTB are trying to hide from us.

    Most woo-woo things that happen are on the edge of perception and easily denied. Stay aware!

    • It is true, it has something to do with where our planet is moving through the solar system.

  17. George, I bought a Lotos 5000D to replace a much higher priced name brand. You will love it. Cuts circles no pun around the other unit. BJ.

  18. We’ve been noticing an increase in synchronicity events here, and we’re 20 miles from the San Andreas; the 4.5 this morning woke us up. I think 9/11 set us on an alternate timeline.

  19. Multiple sources suggest that 12 AM local sidereal time is maybe the peak time for woo events. Less interference is the theory. Things seemed a bit odd to me late last week, so perhaps Friday, I went to the Naval Observatory site to see when that was, to do some personal movie changing stuff. It was around 12 PM as I recall. Very convenient. Did my thing and wondered whether having sidereal time in the middle of our days in Western Hemisphere would result in more anomalies, since almost everyone is awake. Apparently so.

    And don’t forget the Miracle Money Technique. I hope George uttered the magic words when he noticed the miracle. If not, it’s not too late. It works.

  20. Hmmm… With all the odd “woo-woo” crap being reported from this weekend, I wonder, Mr. Ure, if it isn’t time to consider a project similar to the Dream Center. Since you already have a million other things going on, perhaps Zeus can step up and take charge of this one.

    For The Record, I also experienced some woo-woo related incidents on Sunday. First, was a case of an oddly out of place item. Second, some back/hip pain that has bothered me for MONTHS is suddenly almost completely GONE (not that I’m complaining). On top of this, there was a vague sense that something much larger is either out of place, or put back the way it should be.
    Speaking as a Java developer, it almost seems like “reality” got a bug fix or a patch.

    Just My $0.02

  21. “Not only that, but all his (the reader’s) friends had the same memory of the other color vehicle, as well”

    Woo Woo…

    Hmm.. now I am curious.. during times when I have had woo woo experiences.. all seem to happen on days that the CERN collider is working.. there are also reports of strange clouds above the collider as well as other odd anomalies..I know I have mentioned that my theory is everything is a frequency.. time space and matter.. and a lot of odd woo woo experiences that seem to happen on days when the collider is working hard..

    an interesting old video that I enjoy that kind of sort of deals with the possibility LOL oh heck I just like the old sci fy videos….

  22. Somebody in your house has dementia. Classic dementia. A friend’s mother picks up things all the time and then they are never found again. Or if they are, in weird places. Like spatulas in the bathroom drawers. Or car keys in the back of the crisper drawer in the fridge.

    I’d go see a neurologist. Or at least both of you do the peanut butter test. Google it.

  23. Hmmm. About that time, my wife and I were astonished to see actor Wallace Shawn, who played Vizzini in the movie, “Princess Bride,” appear in a guest role in the new series “Young Sheldon.”
    We both remember reading that he had died, and had a conversation about it several years ago…
