On Friday, I laid down for a quick nap before going out. After about 10-15 minutes, my computer emitted a loud beep that I first thought was my smoke detector.
When I investigated the sound, I found it had come from my computer. I was alerted that my hard drive encountered an error and had to shut down. When I restarted, it entered a “Repairing PC” process that failed. All successive efforts involving system restores, drive data transfers, and image reversions proved just as fruitless.
I really have no idea what happened. I had two security services installed, and my computer itself was not giving me any signs of any problems lately. I had some freezes a couple months back, but nothing that would lead me to believe the hard drive was corrupted.
The one thing I’ll point out is this – in the week leading up to the crash, I was losing Internet 2-3 times per day, and I would have to unplug the modem and router in order to restore connectivity. I had not experienced any Internet problems like this dating back to the beginning of the year, when I changed my router password and channel. At the time, I was losing Internet once per day on a fairly consistent basis.
So, am I just an unfortunate computer user? Or was I the target of something a little more sinister? I have some pretty bizarre stories about possible surveillance of my computer, the freakiest being last October when my entire block lost power, literally the very second I began dragging my completed Las Vegas Shooting video into YouTube to upload it.
Several months back, I began noticing a buzzing noise that would seem to hang over my house for several minutes, but then go fade out and go away in just a few seconds. After several occurrences of this, I finally typed a message to a friend saying “I think some kinda aircraft might be hanging out over my house.” Within 5 seconds, I got a pop-up asking me to enable Remote Desktop Connectivity. I was like WTF! I clicked no and the sound faded out and went away within a minute.
I don’t want to sit here and claim the government’s watching me like some sort of crazy person. On one hand, given what I’m exposing, it’s logical to think some forces may keep an extra eye on me over others. But I myself am not a physical threat, nor am I planning any sort of uprising, so to waste resources like that on me doesn’t stand to reason.
Ultimately, I don’t know what’s going on. I have the strong notion these electronics around us are, in essence, connected to other dimensions. The same underlying dimensions that the reality we experience is projected from. Because I assure you, the suspicions I’ve had about surveillance aren’t limited to physical objects, but there have been other instances in which it truly felt as if my thoughts were being read. And I’m just not convinced that type of technology has been made possible by humans.
I do want to point out a couple things – my computer went down the day before Zach’s birthday, which fell on Tisha B’Av this year.
It was also on a date with 47 numerology, a span of 47 days after my birthday. This is a number that dominated my Blog last week.
Remember, the 47th prime number is 211
Maybe it’s also worth mentioning I was in my 12100th day alive.
The date had a life lesson number of 38
