I cannot claim this to be an original idea. I got it from Chuck Wendig’s Terrible Minds blog, and he got it from a Reddit thread. But I really liked it (not to mention was spooked by some of the responses) and decided hmm, I have a pretty wide range of readers. I bet they have some interesting stories to tell.
Have you ever had something happen that made you pause, like a spooky deja vu moment, or a weird occurrence that made you stop and wonder if some temporal or spacial “glitch” had happened? Like maybe the “program” has a bug in it, and what you’re living in isn’t the reality? (Or even something spooky you can’t explain.)
Note: If you’re a fan of the Matrix movies, apparently this is a theme in them, although I only remember a little of the first one and it was years ago when I saw it.
I know personally, I’ve had a bunch of deja vu experiences, all very benign. That’s not uncommon for me at all. So let’s hear your stories, share them so we can all be spooked by them. 🙂
