Okay, so I was at my friend’s house with 4 other friends. Jessica’s mother had a friend come over who claims to be a "claro-sentient", a term I believe he coined himself. He feels energies and basically can tell what is wrong with your body and somewhat what you’re thinking.
He read me, Jessica, Destry (Jessica’s boyfriend) and Evan like a book. He right off the bat asked me what was wrong with my leg. I first thought "there’s nothing wrong with my leg" and I just told him that the knee pops occasionally. He said "No, its something else." I told him that I’ve been having a nerve pain and I think I pinched a nerve.
He then stared at my torso, and said "boy you need to lay off the meat." I thought he was saying I was fat, which makes no sense. He said "you’re not fat, I’m looking at your colon. You need to eat less fatty foods." Coincidentally, my stomach gives me a lot of problems.
He also mentioned I should lay off the heroics, which I think means I need to stop trying to do so many situps for the "ladies" as he put it.
Finally he told me that I need to lay off the caffeine, which I am trying to do. The 10 years of drinking pop has left an imprint he said…
And that’s nothing compared to my friends.
He looked at Destry and pretty much laid out his entire personality, and said that next week you had better show up to whatever legal thing you have to go to… He has a court hearing next week!
Jessica, he looked at her, once again laid out her personality then pointed out that she had a nerve pinched in her shoulders, which she had been complaining about to her mom before-hand. He had no prior knowledge…
Then Evan… He looked right at him when we said that he should look at Evan next and said "No no no, no way. Too many skeletons in the closet, too much pain. I’m not going there."
Evan has severe depression and an ex that has really screwed him up mentally, and the night before he was very depressed about it.
I felt like the man was looking into my soul… I drove 10 miles home and took 15 minutes typing this and my heart is still pounding!
Have you had anything like this happen?
How is it possible to look right through someone?
I’ve been able to have moments like that with myself, but they’re fairly fleeting and usually happen while I’m on the border between awake and asleep. I’ve never actually been able to see other people that way. As cool as it would be, I’m not sure I’d ever really want to. Too much pain and suffering in the world. My own pain, and the knowledge of my future pain, is enough to make me not want to see others too clearly.
It’s really cool that this guy was able to do that though. He has a great ability, and it’s effect seems to be more or less lost on most of the human race, which is a pity.
Also guys, Sasho may be a dick, but he’s our dick. Not everything he says is irrelevant, even when it is attention seeking. Besides, is it really so terrible to be reminded that we are not perfect and have flaws? It helps to learn to laugh at yourself, so if he laughs at you, just laugh with him. Letting yourselves get hurt or offended by little things like this is completely pointless.
:) maybe we can get him to change his @ name….
heh, whatcha think? Whenever we want to say something to him it will be: @ourdick
Hahaha, seriously though, @sasho @poefan2490, sasho says says some witty stuff, cant take that from him.
Cheers @vizznou, interesting vid
People can get good at reading external cues, and cold reading, and doing their homework, all which can appear to be supernatural abilities. Evidence that supports someone being able to do something like look at a colon is purely anecdotal and very weak.
My reputation grows like my dick. <- It doesn’t.
By the way I just woke up and I was having this interesting dream. It wasn’t a dream at all. I was just thinking about almost everything that ever happened to me lately about the discussions I had on HE – in peace. You know, nothing fantastical with my sleeping – just deep thoughts. Or you don’t know…wait. And I feel refreshed. It’s good knowing yourself in depth, based on observation of the experiences with sensing them differently if you just imagine. It helps you know better other people as well.
But right now absolutely nothing stressful happens in my life and that’s why it’s easy for me to do it.
@luigi made a thread about recognizing strangers and it has a lot to do with “mind reading” if you like to call it that way.
Basically you’re reading people’s emotions – the feelings part, combined with their gestures and mimics – their habitual way of expression. The stronger these emotions are, the more easy it is to understand what the hell. You listen to their voices like it’s a melody – the intonation. And don’t just listen to the words they’re saying, but also – make eye contact, listen to their voice, recognize if they’re playing a role or they’re sincere. Know their “language”. Shit like that. Famous seducers had done it to get what they want. Cleopatra. Shit that you don’t really care about, but if you’re interested and care about this person on an emotional level – then it starts to get weird and often a bad interference with a paranoid android. Because mind-reading is not really a good thing. You know all the fucking bad shit that this person experienced and if you haven’t already lived through the same thing, you’ll just be fucking shocking to them and you’ll hurt yourself. And that’s why I try to make fun of everything considered “bad” and all I get is usually attention which is mutual after all.
Too bad the only word you could come up with is dick. I’m shocked. Idiots. Love ya. :)
I have only skimmed through the comments on this thread, and I would just like to say that Sasho is being Sasho as he presents himself on this site. There is nothing on this thread that is any different than his normal posts, and frankly if it was all flowers and sunshine coming from him, I would be concerned. Kind of like if Tits suddenly advocated we all get together for a hippie drum circle.
Personally I enjoy his off colour sarcasm cause I can tell its all tongue in cheek. Even if its not from your POV, its still funny as hell from mine.
@ Sasho – Are you saying your dick does not grow? Are you suffering from ED? I am confused….
“Most people don’t really know themselves, so it’s real arrogant to assume you’ve ‘figured out’ people you’ve never even met. Map is not the territory and all that jazz”
Most people are blind to how they present themselves to the world. Eye contact, microexpressions and all that other nitpicking psychobabble are just ways of discerning beyond how people want to appear and the underlying reasons for it.
