Okay /x/, please hear me out here. I'm not 100% sure if this is the right board to write this in, but I don't know where else this would fit.
For a long while now, I've been noticing things. Strange coincidences that happen a bit too often, leading me to believe that they're not just coincidences.
Here's an example. Let's say I'm multitasking. I'm reading something or doing something on my phone, while listening to a Youtube video in the background. As I'm reading, I read a word, and directly after reading that word, I hear it in the Youtube video that I'm listening to in the background. This is just one example.
If anyone is actually interested in this, I'll get more into it. Thanks, /x/.
Most of the time it's just words or phrases that match each other, but are from two completely different sources. I guess another one would be me thinking to myself while listening to something in the background. Again, the coincidence is two words or a phrase matching each other. The topic I'm thinking of also has nothing to do with the video that's going on in the background.

>have to make him think being a gay fairy boy is normal
>keep making him subliminally hear "I am pretty gay" in whatever he's reading or listening to.
>He freaks out and goes on alium secrets containment board x on 4-alium chan
>I have to deploy tinfoil cover story 8 before he gets wise and stops being a faggot.
Life is hard.
I honestly think you're just pattern-matching. You've begun to consciously look out for repeating phrases and picking up on them more simply because you're alert for it.
It might mean something, but do you spot a common refrain with all the repeating phrases or is it utterly random?
That's what my friend told me too, and I'm starting to think so too. Maybe I'm just subconsciously trying to find it. But yea, it's pretty random. Right after i realize it, i just think, "Oh shit, it happened again."
Pretty much coincidental. Oddly enough this reminds me of when I was 8 and first learned the word "bastard" lol. All of a sudden I started hearing it everywhere. It's not that people were saying it more than usual, I was just noticing it more commonly.
Also, how are you able to read something and listen to speaking at the same time? There's no way you can be paying attention to both things at the same time.
it happens to me alot anon
just blow it off, take it with a grain of salt.
once, for the life of me i dont know why, i was reading the back of a pill bottle and stopped for a moment, waiting to hear the last word i read (death) almost expecting it and the podcast i was listening to (TESD) repeated the word.
its strange, definitely. but i would draw similarities akin to pausing a movie at 1 hour and 11 minutes to do something and noticing the time 11:11am.
context is important, ya know.
sure the words are the same, and mean the same, but two completely different stories behind it.
