Karma Police

You know your life is sorry when your mantra or theme song is "Karma Police" by Radiohead. Part of the chorus goes something like this: "I lost myself, I lost myself. Yeah, just wait a second now, I lost", and so on and so forth.

Unfortunately, this probably rings home with people who have some kind of chronic mental fugue, and other dissociative disorders such as depersonalization (often accompanied by derealization). I belong to the latter group. I've been in a chronic state of depersonalization since December 14, 1990. I had just barely turned 17.

I'm so inspired by "Karma Police" that I've vowed to write a short story whose title is aptly, "Karma Police". Most likely, it will be time-travel or alternate reality based.

BTW, I'm a huge Radiohead fan.

Philip K. Dick, Who?

Every now and then, I'll mosy on over to the official PKD website and then link from there to the site that was formerly known as the unofficial home of PKD on the web, or the next best thing. The current official homepage has the web URL that the fan site used to have. So J.K. has moved his site to I realize I don't look at site as often as I would like to. However, there really is not much happening, except spam. Where does this spam come from? Half-life?

There we go, a new name for spammers, at least for Friends of Phil. We'll call those spammers- Half-lifers or even non-entities. Isn't there anything that they could do to redirect the traffic of those half-lifers. They're tearing up the place, man. At this rate it's all going to kipple. Let's bring Phil back into our existense, break open the lines of communication over at the Official Site and also at the Fan Site.

Ha! And you thought I was going to talk about the music of Police. Although I do like the song and other music by "Police" I'd like to direct your attention to the synchronicity that was coined and described by the Swiss Psychiatrist Carl Gustav Jung. A "synchronous" situation is one in which at least two events occur acausally (not by cause and effect) but are nevertheless, invariably linked. They hold significant meaning for the "perceiver" of the events, and can not be explained as happenstance.

From Wikipedia:

"A well-known example of synchronicity is the true story of the French writer Émile Deschamps who in 1805 was treated to some plum pudding by the stranger Monsieur de Fortgibu. Ten years later, he encountered plum pudding on the menu of a Paris restaurant, and wanted to order some, but the waiter told him the last dish had already been served to another customer, who turned out to be de Fortgibu. Many years later in 1832 Émile Deschamps was at a diner, and was once again offered plum pudding. He recalled the earlier incident and told his friends that only de Fortgibu was missing to make the setting complete — and in the same instant the now senile de Fortgibu entered the room."

I bet you know what' s coming next, right. Yes, I do have my own stories of personal experiences with Synchronicity that I would like to share. Precognition and Deja-vu were also experiences that were plentiful during my "Anamnestic" period. Unfortuneately, the experiences have lessened if frequency, at the same time, allowing me to at least function again, unlike the time of the "Anamnesis".

Greetings fellow Explorers,

Welcome to my Blog. Revealing my thoughts to others is something very new to me (be it in the physical realm or the cyber realm). I'm a very private individual who usually keeps to himself. It doesn't mean that I don't like people; on the contrary, I'm very compassionate. I just find that I'm different than most, as I'm sure you will ascertain if you care to follow my posts.

At times, I will post fictionalized accounts of some very real experiences. Other times, I will post real experiences that one could not interpret as anything but fictional. So does that mean "fiction is reality" or "reality is fiction"? Either way it does - for me.
