Someone ignored me for that?

Anyways, I've had a depressing few days.

I was caught out in the quad expounding on world history.

I believe that human emotional states wander from person to person. That this world is far more strange and alien than any of us are willing to admit.
wah... waall-eee

By "any of us" do you mean "many"? Countless people have remarked on the fact that our own world is a strange, alien place. There's nothing new in that.

Yes, emotional states "wander". We influence each other, that's what people do in a society.

Talking about hallucinations:

Sometimes, especially when I am in the forest during night time (stargazing treks, you know...), I can swear I see things out of the corner of my eye. They are usually dark, small, humanoid shapes, moving as if floating in the air, just outside my field of vision. There is never anything there once I turn my head to investigate, though. When it is really quiet as well, I can barely perceive the sound of whispering around me, laughter even. It sounds child like, as if uttered by a high pitched voice, yet still very low and kind of distant, coming out from the trees. I can never make out actual words, probably because there is none. I know for a fact that I am all alone; at least, I doubt anyone else is up at 04:00, certainly not in the middle of a deep forest some half-way up to the summit of a mountain, yet, there are times I feel like someone or something is there, hiding in the dark, watching me.

It was rather unsettling in the beginning, but I have gotten used to it over the years. These phantasms (for the lack of a better word) have never caused me any harm - after all; how could they? It is all in my head, so I have no reason to fear them.

The leading hypothesis, at least, is that it is my own fantasy, filling the blanks caused by the darkness and silence of the night. The human brain has an affection for patterns; and it will seek out a pattern even in circumstances when there is none. There is nothing to worry about - you are not going insane, your brain is just over-reacting once in a while.

You could also be near a higher than normal electromagnetic field, they have been known to cause hallucinations and so on. If you're near a naturally occuring field, it could be the cause too. I'd actually go with that, because you claim to hear voices too Gazer, it's probably likely that you're near one.

Is this thread buzzing the serious out of anybody else? I'm completely baffled. And what is with Dean's sudden expose on his life?

Well, the thread title doesn't seem to encourage seriusness.

Great, because with all the stuff you've been doing lately, I was thinking that we've been getting along WAY TOO MUCH lately...
