One of the beauties of Statcounter is that it shows you the search terms that people use to find your blog. I sometimes view these search terms as fodder for fiction. Other times, I see them as symbolic of the collective mind. I pay close attention because in the past, the terms have yielded some stunning synchros.
Two years ago, for instance, we noticed that the word phoenix was prevalent in the search terms and eventually a woman wrote us about an amazing synchro involving her daughter. Earlier this year, we noticed a number of searches for Wolfgang Pauli and these searches always came from Toronto. Several weeks later, we got an email from William Shatner’s Weird or What Show and subsequently appeared on it to talk about – Pauli!
In the last month, the most common search terms that have appeared on our blog – other than the terms coincidence or synchronicity are:
Desperate housewives logo
Nicholas cage, time traveler
co-existence bumper sticker
The Quebec encounter posts generated a lot of interest on our blog, including interest from: the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, the FBI Criminal Justice Information Systems, the FCC, Navy Network Information Center (nnic), the Department of Defense Network Information Center, the Canadian Air Defence, various Air Force Bases, and from Gunter Annex, the home of the Headquarters 754th Electronic Systems Group (HQ 754th ELSG). The 754th Electronic Systems Group provides and supports secure combat information systems and networks that increase the capabilities of our commanders and leaders of the United States Air Force (USAF), the Department of Defense and other Federal Government Agencies.
And that’s just the tip. My question is simple: why are all these American and Canadian government agencies so interested in anything having to do with UFO encounters, a phenomenon they claim does not exist and has never existed?
The Desperate Housewives logo is kind of funny. It’s an apple. What does the apple represent in certain religions? Well, the apple was the forbidden fruit in Eden, and when Adam and Even partook, they were cast out of paradise. On a synchro note, Apple’s logo is, of course, an apple with a bite taken out of it. Steve Jobs got tempted in paradise!
Cage, the time traveler. This post came about as a result of the similarity between two photos – one of a soldier in some long ago war and the other of Cage today.
Then there’s the orange centipede. The first post we put up that involved an orange centipede came from Renee Prince. Here’s a bit about their life cycle.
The co-existence bumper sticker may be a collective hope.
Now, I can understand the interest in UFO encounters. I can understand the interest in Desperate Housewives, the show, but why the logo?? I can understand the interest in Cage as a possible time traveler. But I mean, really, orange centipedes? If I were using these phrases as a launchpad for a possible idea for a novel, it would go something like this:
Protagonist has encounter with UFO/aliens, possible abduction. He is a religious conservative for whom sin (the apple metaphor) is real. As a result of his encounter/abduction, he discovers that he can time travel. He travels back in time to the time of his encounter, the parts he can’t remember, and is confronted with aliens who are orange centipedes. Okay, so it’s not the most original idea. But maybe it’s a place to start. However, why do the bad guy aliens usually resemble giant insects or worms/snakes with no redeeming qualities?
The larger question is what do these terms tell us, if anything, about the collective mind? You might argue that with 7 billion people on the planet, the terms aren’t that unusual. All right, I’ll buy that – until the terms show up so often, from so many different geographic locations that you sense something is going on.
Sometimes it’s personal – and sometimes it isn’t. Not too long ago, we had a number of hits for the term, empath symptoms and shortly afterward, northern Florida experienced some of its worst floods in decades, wildfires in Colorado destroyed homes and hundreds or thousands of acres of land, and the heat index in northeastern states hit triple digits. Before the Haitian earthquake in 2010, the most common search terms indicated that a massive quake was going to occur somewhere in the Caribbean or in North America.
In fact, an outfit called Half Past Human supposedly scans the Internet for these linguistic patterns, interprets them, and offers their reports – for a price, of course. Essentially, this company is using the internet as a giant oracle. Their predictions – particularly around the time of the economic meltdown in 2008 – were very accurate. Other times, not so much. You’ll find some interesting predictions here, where the site owner, George Ure, is connected, in some way, to half past human.
They aren’t the only ones using the Internet as an oracle, a prognosticator of what’s coming up. Bloggers do this daily. They sit down to write something and suddenly find themselves in the synchronicity zone, connecting seeming disparate bits of info into a larger picture. The bloggers listed here are people we’ve been following for quite a while. They each address the changing paradigms in unique ways, according to their talents and interests:
These blogs are just a fraction of the ones we follow, where we learn something with every visit about the nature of life in all its permutations and wonders and secrets. Bloggers may very well be the collective voice of what’s here – and what’s headed our way. I’m sure I’ve neglected to include some blogs and sites: my apologies.But the bottom line is this:
Fellow bloggers, what are the most popular search terms that bring people to your blog? Maybe if we put our collective heads together, the picture will get much clearer. And is there an app in here somewhere? Some synchro enthusiasts have already created an app were you can report your synchronicity and find out …well, something.
What can we divine from the search terms that bring people to our blogs?
