WuJo, as everyone knows, is the nondenominational version of “that signpost up ahead” from Twilight Zone. It’s where the real runs head-on into the world of unreal and things get all tangled up in ways that confront our sense of logic.
Case in point, reader Summer, who’s just encountered a paid of self-repairing pajamas…
“Dear Mr. Ure,
It finally happened to me! I read the wujo stories with skepticism, but it really hits home when it happens to you!
Last year I bought my son a pair of PJ’s at a consignment shop. He only wore them once when the toe split. I didn’t think it mattered much and knew the little Mom and Pop store probably couldn’t afford to refund stuff like that, so we just kept them.
Tonight they came out of the closet for the first time in months since they are heavy and the cool weather just started here in California. I saw the rip in the toe and decided to put a different set of pajamas on him but they had been out-grown. So on went the torn pair.
Only by chance did I notice, maybe 10 minutes later, that there was no longer a hole in the toe!
I must have spent another 20 minutes carefully checking and rechecking pajama feet and soles, closet, checking them in the light, etc. But there’s simply no tear and no logical explanation – I saw the rip TONIGHT and tried another outfit
Because of it! Please add this to your extensive files and keep up the great work…
No Longer Doubting in California”
I’m not kidding when I say the incidence of Wujo events is on the increase. Here’s one from reader Renee which is pretty strange, too:
“9/29/2012 Full Harvest moon
Since childhood, I am now 61yrs of age, I have had numerous “prophetic” and strange dreams. BUT I have never had what I would refer to as an Apocolyptic Dream, until early this morning. Here we go.
My Husband and I were in a huge group of people, I knew no one except him. Somehow and I think it was via the Tornado Alarm system, we were told, “The End was here.
The USA could no longer fight off the coming apocolypse. Now was the time to get our things in order, to await the rescue Ships that were coming. Once we boarded these Ships, we would all die together. No way out for us.”
We all became very calm, very purposeful, gathered ourThings of importance and said our Good byes and I love yous to all. It was such a feeling of relief, almost serenity. Soon The Ships came for us. They were HUGE ocean liners.
Our ship let down a huge ramp and were told, ” Hold onto each other, join arms and move on to the Ships orderly and as tightly as we could get.” So like Happy sheep we did this.
My overall feeling was ” Cult- like. At least we are going to die together. All of us, everyone that we loved and evryone on Earth at the same time.” I held onto my Husband happily and tightly as the ramp closed. We slid down the ramp like the scene in Titanic when the ship up ended. It was all very calm, very surreal. We all ended up on the deck of the ship. Then the ramp became a Compacting Wall!
It scrunched evryone together as the Loud speakers told us that “This is it”. Once again this incredible peace came over me, “Ahh, finally it’s over.” As the ramp/wall compacted us tighter and tighter. Then the bottom of the floor OPENED up and dropped all of us to the belly of the SHip. We were still alive, they lied to us.
How many more times was this Serenity then Crash was going to happen??? Then it occurred to me that this was Hell. This was going to go on and on forever! Suddenly in my dream I heard 3 bells–ding ding ding! Ship bells! Representing the warning on a ship, Danger ahead! Danger ahead! Then my husband woke me as he does daily at 8am. So end of dream.
One thing that was very very strange was that when I told him about the Distinct 3 bell warning he said he had just put several bowls into the dishwasher before he came to wake me. In my dream I heard the 3 bells but he said it was no doubt the sound of the bowls dinging.
Strange, very strange, even for someone like me who has frequent strange dreams. Jus sayin.
Serious Fan for years, Renee”
This is marginally WuJo-type material, but it gives us a chance to reflect on that odd in-between land, between the full waking state and sleep. In that place, there are times when one sensory input in particular can pick out some oddity (in this case the clanging of the bowls) and weave them into a dream.
What you don’t want to have is the sound of running water while dreaming of having a full bladder, of course.
Next? Another “dream” report from reader Penny…somewhat delayed…but still interesting:
“In 1965, when my son was 2, I dreamed we were near a 3 story apartment building [grey] and he looked as he looks now: nice looking, greying hair, owning the very wool overcoat as in the dream. Until last year we did live in a 3 story grey condo.
In the dream I looked at the sky, seemed about 11-12 in the am: the sky was overcast with faint cloud cover [uniform] and it was burning off. The sun was just short of overhead, yellowish as always. To its left, not very far, through the misty cloud cover was a blue-ish colored orb, only slightly less bright than the sun. Hence, my bet.
I have had another dream of the sun looking odd: orange-ish with what looked like a rusty core, the way an apple looks when you have taken the core out. No one seemed to know what it meant. That was probably 15 years ago.
I have also dreamed the earth was hit, and I thought it was a comet, but whatever, it sort of glanced off and tipped the earth. That’s one dream.
Also 15 years +/-. On July 5, 1995 dreamed of a Grecian woman with cloud cover over her face, very tall,slender,graceful, suspended in space, who shook her finger at me and said, Pay attention! I was shown 4 smaller events [perhaps peripheral debris causing melting where it landed] and then a map in blue and white tipping upwards about 30 degrees [possibly slightly less], and to the NE maybe 22-30 degrees.
My grandsons have had meteor?/comet/asteroid dreams as well since early childhood. I used to look at their drawings and ask if it was from a dream and listening to what they wanted to tell. Sometimes they were told in the dreams not to tell everything.
In Feb, 2005, while recovering from a severe cold, I dreamed many members of my family were up in the mountains [Oregon I think, though am currently in CO] and were were scanning the stars to figure out where we were, as the earth had been hit by a comet and knocked into a different orientation to the sun.
On March 15, 1999 or 2000 [can't remember which and journal is in another state in storage] I saw some sort of astronaut with copper colored helmet and amber visor against the dark of space and was told the earth was going to be hit by I think it was comet as opposed to meteor, and we would be told what to do and where to go.
To this day I don’t know if that’s in a guidance dream or by FEMA, etc.. I am assuming FEMA. Next night I dreamed it was someplace high and cold.Why the cold? As I am getting old and for various other reasons I think it won’t be too long,
I have started looking for tidbits re comets..and here we are. The comet scenario as opposed to just a rock might explain the 3 days of darkness prophecies I’ve come across: The gases which would become volatile might act as a freeze agent which would explain why people should seal the windows, bring animals inside, etc.
I’d heard it was from Padre Pio, last week read it was Hopi. So it’s out there.”
Oh, it’s out there for sure…but there for sure, but the real issue for all of us to consider is whether this is a legitimate “arising/knowing from within mass consciousness” or, equally possible is that it’s a power-tripping mind-screw in order for one group of people asset primacy over another. There’s very little different in behavior between a people claiming to be “chosen ones” on the one hand, or aspiring to “racial purity” on the other.
To make it a trifecta (3-way race) we also have the “inputs before sleeping” problem described in the previous dream report. Obviously, there has been so much talk about things hitting earth that even a small dram of precociousness COULD pick out comet or meteor impact and assume it to be real.
This is the same problem Clif runs into in his data: People are prone to think and speak and therefore also write stuff which may, or may not reflect the objective future’s characteristics when it arrives.
It’s like last night, Elaine and I are planning another one of our trips (short one, Branson maybe in November to see the Christmas shows and such) and while I was “asleep” she had a nice conversation with her newly-fathered son up in the Seattle area.
So what did the “blender-between-the-ears” come up with for a dream context: Elaine and I on a trip, but not in the airplane because there was too much baby gear, so we were driving. The baby was the focus of attention, we couldn’t seem to go 10-minutes without stopping and hence didn’t seem to get anywhere, yet Elaine was talking about a different trip – without the baby in tow.
You see how it works? In some way, our senses get amplified even if only to pick up a keyword like “baby” or “trip” – the rest is oftentimes just stubs of thought – those single items that pass through your mind during the day but tha5t you can’t follow several steps to lead where they would…so they act as starting points for the mental blender.
Except, of course, one role of sleep is to resolve (and dispose) of such thought-stubs so we can focus on an overall direction to life and work our primary goals and such. My point is that by the time the alarm clock goes off, the function of dream states has usually been to go from blender of big concepts to puree in a food processor to garbage disposal.
And then we wake up, but a lotto ticket, and hope for a better world than the one we awoke from.
Around the Ranch: Computers are Out to Get Me
For some reason this week, computers have not been my friends. More properly, most weeks they live in mortal fear of me lest I smite them with an update or some outrage to their registries. But this week was different.
The final straw was yesterday’s tracking of two plus hours of work with a single glitch. While moving a graphic from one position to another, unseen work at the top of the page was overwritten. The result was a less than ideal column.
Still, some of the columns this week were OK. In fact, Peoplenomics Wednesday had a gem in it that readers are still talking about like this fellow who wrote about my skeptical view of how Hillary’s State Department has been performing lately:
[religious expletive deleted] George that was funny ” I once thought that Mitt Romney would defeat Barack Obama…but I’m going to have to shave that bet a bit and put a buck or two on Hillary defeating Obama. “ They just shaved off part of my jaw during a tooth extraction earlier today and I was laughing so hard after I read that I just about passed a monkey out of my butt! Ahh gees that’s one of your best ones yet!”
It is never my intention to let your monkeys out of the corral. Instead, I’d prefer a smile and a good attitude. Still, if computers don’t get back to fearing me and acting obediently, I may be trying to borrow some of that nitrous, myself. With any luck, Elaine won’t notice on the grocery list my addition of 12 cans of whipping cream.
Times have changed – and I’ve changed with them. In my youth, computers could literally drive one to drink. But, as I’ve aged, other forms of self-medication have arisen. But since clear-headed is one of the requirements of airplane flying, these options, too, are off the table.
You know it’s been a tough week when you look forward to calling the dentist as a backup plan should the wife notice my sudden interest in whipping cream.
Our reader in the Philippines has sent us a list titled “Confucius Did NOT Say” which is a lighthearted way to leave things for the weekend.
“Please note that this is very tongue in cheek. I only have a smattering of Numerology and some of the stuff, when coerced, has a way of hitting nail on head. I guess it’s like the linguistics side of things but numbers have meanings attached.
We are having national and local elections next year, May 13, 2013. Sounds ominous doesn’t it especially the 05 13 13 =5 part of it. All elections are a strange distraction as I see your Tuesday, Nov 06, 2012, 06 11 12=11. Numerology says 11 is a power number, we will see what will happen…ominous indeed for we might see a rise in power of some unexpected person and events as well.
The Philippine election with a 5 just means another round of beer and food, as the usual jocular thing that elections are here. It is important to note what Confucius did not say so that there will be no Confusion. Terisita in Philippines
CONFUCIUS DID NOT SAY…
Man who wants pretty nurse, must be patient.
Passionate kiss, like spider web, leads to undoing of fly.
Lady who goes camping must beware of evil intent.
Squirrel who runs up woman’s leg will not find nuts.
Man who leaps off cliff jumps to conclusion.
Man who runs in front of car gets tired, man who runs behind car gets exhausted.
Man who eats many prunes get good run for money.
Wars not determine who is right, determines who is left.
Man who fight with wife all day get no piece at night.
It takes many nails to build a crib but only one screw to fill it.
Man who drives like hell bound to get there.
Man who stands on toilet is high on pot.
Man who live in glass house should change clothes in basement.
Man who fish in other man’s well often catch crabs.
Finally CONFUCIUS DID SAY. . …
“A lion will not cheat on his wife, but a tiger would!”…

Broader View of the Bots – Part 2
Reslicing 2013 In our discussion
Wednesday, we looked at a number of issues that pop up regarding this “predicting future” stuff including bias of interpreter, lack of previous templates for events and so forth. All of which is terribly interesting, and all, but still leaves us with an ugly prepping problem: What’s the right thing to prep for? Damned difficult problem. But that’s why I’ve been up since 3 AM thinking about today, when a more rational person would have the good sense to just roll over and go back to sleep. First, a few news items to get the old noggin rolling. Then we’ll look again at what’s coming…if anything….in 2013.
