This idea is going pretty far out there, and I dont necessarily believe it; just saying...

I always enjoyed the idea that time is a construct and we have/had the ability to slip in and out of moments at any point in the time line of our lives, we are free to move forward and backwards.
Basically, nostagia I suppose. You smell something and it takes you to another time.

I'm sure a lot of people have read Slaughter House 5;
How the Tralfamadorians had static lives, and they could choose what point of their lives they wanted to be living, they could go from their 5 yo self to their 60 yo self at any given point.
So it goes...

This sounds familiar!Like I smell honeysuckle and I get a calming affect because it reminds me of the comfort I felt as a child at my grandmother's home.Call me nuts but I believe microdoses of hallucinogens have opened up old memories of an old life.I used to have night terrors as a child and knocked down the front door thinking the house was going to blow up and this continued until I got help.But I was just a child.Maybe saying that it is a past life is far fetched.But who knows..

I've never served in the military but can easily ignore the politics and old school views.Just to be around the people at VFW's.Just because I know that they have hold some morals and values that I have stood strong to most of my life.Comes back to question of past life's?But I'm stoned and thee village idiot...

Anything is possible.I found out once I was fishing on Mike Pence's brothers property.

Sure is.
Years ago I was island hopping in the Caribbean and ended up camping on Lenny Kravitz's property on Eleuthera for 2 nights.

And since we're name dropping; when I was a kid I saw Andrea the Giant at the airport once. Highlight of my childhood.

All the time.
*on the phone w loved one*
"hey! I'm in...... Uh... Oh yeah! Springfield, Missouri!"
And telling stories sometimes it takes a hot minute to remember where it took place.
Or like when u see a shopping plaza that looks identical to one you've seen before in another place and think you're there for a second.

I forget what state im in alot when im on the road. I like it though, cuz i find it amusing and fun to retrace my steps from the last few days.
One thing i dont like is when i get sleep paralysis on the road. Ill be sleeping and ill think i woke up to people walking around me and hearing noises that arent there. It seems totally real except i cant move cuz im still in REM sleep and when youre in REM your muscles paralyze. It takes me a min to calm myself down and realize its a dream...

Imagine being a child and having a similar type of affect and you think the house is going to blow up...

All the time. Ive woken up in a train yard before that I didnt recognize (pre smart phone era) and had to ask someone where I was. "Columbus." ...."Ummm, Ohio?" I really wasnt sure! The look on his face was priceless.

which reminds me of a funny joke, go up to someone and ask them what year it is. when they tell you make your eyes go real wide and start running away screaming "it worked! great scott, it worked!"
