In the aftermath of our appearance on Coast to Coast AM, we received a number of fascinating emails – and a few phone calls. We’ll be posting about some of these stories periodically.
I’d like to preface this by saying that I’m always surprised when someone who is a complete stranger tracks down our phone number and calls. We have caller ID and usually don’t answer calls from numbers we don’t recognize. Our feeling is that if you have something to say that necessitates a call, then please leave a message and we’ll get back to you.
Not too long ago, a call from an unrecognized number came through and because the area code was from the city in Florida where our daughter, Megan, went to college, I answered it. I figured maybe she had lost her cell phone! But it wasn’t Megan calling.
The woman on the other end had written a book that involved synchronicity and wanted us to review it. Usually, we’re happy to help out other writers. But I was irritated by the call, by this woman’s pushiness, by her intrusion into that time of day when I enjoy my coffee and drop by other blogs. In the end, I sent her book to a friend to review and it got lost in the shuffle of daily life and was never reviewed.
One of the emails we received after Coast to Coast was from a guy named Tom, who has filmed a documentary called 933 skills that involves synchronicity/ETs, UFOs. Before you click on the link, please read the rest of the post.
We received three emails from Tom within a 24-hour period, asking if we had watched his film. I explained that we were recovering from sleep deprivation – the show was from 2-5 AM EST – and no, we hadn’t watched it yet, but would. So yesterday, I did.
There are three segments to this film, which add up to about half an hour. First, the numbers intrigued me – 933. A new one. What could it possibly address? I wondered, and clicked on part one- the clip to the far right on the You Tube link. I nearly stopped watching within the first minute or so because of the way Obama is depicted, but hey, okay, a difference of opinion and all that. I’m glad I kept watching.
Tom’s documentary involves a sighting on October 12, 1992, of a “a green ball of fire” that was witnessed by thousands of people in the northeastern U.S. He delves into this event and the number 933 in the same way our Australian blogging friend, Daz, dives into synchronicities. Both men drill through layers of stuff, of connections within connections, labyrinths within labyrinths, until your head spins. But the bottom line is always satisfying and provides insights into synchronicity.
I sent the You Tube link to mathaddict (Connie Cannon in Aliens in the Backyard). She’s the best numerologist I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing and I figured she would have something to say about it. She did: Here I go again….the 933 on this guy’s moniker is 9+3+3 = 15 = 6. Any questions, Bueller? This is the number, as we all know by now, of anything relative to UFOs/ETs and such.
When I sent her remark to Tom, he asked, “Who’s Bueller?”
I think Bueller refers to a line in the 1986 movie Ferris Bueller’s Day Off , a comedy starring Matthew Broderick. The important thing here, though, is that Connie identified, numerologically, the substance of Tom’s documentary.
After I watched part one, I was interested enough to click on part two. I happened to glance at the numbers of views it had received and yes, there it was, the number 933. Not 930 or 9,300 or 93. But 933, the very number Tom talks about in the film. At this point, I asked myself what I usually do when confronted with this sort of thing, Who’s orchestrating this stuff, anyway?
There are no easy answers to that question. The WHO seems to depend on our individual belief systems – philosophical, spiritual, scientific, academic, medical, whatever. But for me, it usually goes back to physicist David Bohm. He believed in an underlying order in the universe that he called the implicate or enfolded order. It’s a kind of primal soup that births everything – even time. The explicate order is our external reality – i.e. , for instance, Tom’s film. Synchronicity is what lives and breathes at the border between the implicate and the explicate, the internal and the external realities.
The 933 views was an obvious synchro, a confirmation that I should watch parts 2 and 3. So I did. And Tom may be on to something here.
Each of us has a different way of experiencing, interpreting, using and living with synchronicity. I couldn’t do a film like Tom’s; I can’t write about synchros in the way that Daz does. After a certain level of drilling, frustration sets in and I walk away. Yet I’m grateful for people like Tom and Daz who possess the patience and perseverance to go for the absolute bottom line: what is this this thing called synchronicity, anyway? Who are we in the greater scheme of things? And hey, hello, what’s going on? So take a look at Tom’s film. It provides much fodder for thought.
