Maybe I'm just an asshole. Maybe I just drink too much.
But hear me out.
I never bought the "switching universe" shit with Berenstain Bears. I just wrote it off as a bunch of idiot children who couldn't spell.
This fucking dress.
If anything made me think we were in some sort of flux, it's this fucking dress.
This morning I saw it on the news. It was CLEARLY white and gold. Like no question. Didn't even look a little blue.
Got to work, did work (and dicking around on 4chan) for a few hours, then saw someone here post it and DAMN. All of a sudden it was black and blue. I couldn't see any white OR gold in the picture at all. I thought anon was playing a trick with the white balance and stuff, so I looked it up on google. Every single one looked black and blue.
Then I went on a walk to grab a snack down the street (live and work in the city). Went out of the building via the stairs, and back up via the elevator. I noticed that the elevator was clearly smaller than it was even this morning.
Did I jump, or am I just crazy?
Awaking from sleepwalking

Greetings, /x/. Fellow lurker who hasn't been back to this board in quite some time.
Long story short, last night crossing into today, I've been watching excerpts from some pretty heavy "conspiracy" shit. Killuminati being one of the videos, tying a lot of things that aren't exactly understood by a vast majority of people over the years.
The point I want to make isn't from me watching this, but the overwhelming shock following some highlighted facts in the video which you have to filter through of course. Lately my sleep has been declining, from 7 to 6 to 5 hours of rest over a few weeks. It's entirely my choice though, not from insomnia or absolute depression or something. I've found it odd how I sometimes find out that I sleepwalk, rarely, and also hold conversations while I'm asleep sometimes as reported by my family. Whether it is my unconscious or subconscious as we know those two separately, I cannot say that matters, however I jumped to my bed after I felt paralysis for a moment. My feet were still numb and for a minute I had to check why my foot was cut with skin missing, due to me kicking the shit out of a plastic bin a few feet away from my bed. Therefore, I could tell I was sleepwalking, and I recall standing upward upon waking up. Shock overcame me once again but from pure shock of waking from such an event. I knew I was a sleepwalker at very rare instances, but I never knew to what cause.
Still, I'm uncertain if what I encountered was sleep paralysis, or if there really was a demon in front of me. Uncertainty is a common response to something very frightening or shocking, as the state of uncertainty allows for us to remain confused until further evidence or facts appear before us. My certainty is that I felt something shocking. I was screaming out the top of my lungs for over 10 seconds upon waking up.
I don't have spooky shit or whatever pleases you guys nowadays, so here's some image about H.W. Bush's best coined term yet or whathaveyou.
Monastic Life of Benedictine Monks

Since this is religious and therefore metaphysical as far as philosophy goes, I figured it belongs here. I'm someone who is lost in his life at 26 with no higher education, vocational training, or job. My interests other than music though, have been the occult (going to OTO Gnostic Masses was the only social manifestation) such as Golden Dawn style Magick, Tarot, 'Astrotheology', Manly Hall and Aleister Crowley's works, and even stumbling upon occult works of natural science of the 1500's.
However, I was raised and confirmed Roman Catholic, and while I weigh out whether I can swear an allegiance to that faith , contemplate Hindu or Indian philosophy I learn like Vedanta and figuring out the history of religions through mostly reading whatever I can find, as long as it's decently sourced. This leads to a confusion in belief systems, as I said I weigh out 'should I go back to Synagogue, is that reflective of my beliefs? Or maybe Islam, or heck Hindu or Buddhist monastic life?' But that's the thing of it, being schizotypal and obsessive as I am, I have figured out that I must become either a Priest or a Monk. So does anyone know much about the Roman Catholic Church's process in joining a monestary as a monk? Here is one that is nearby http://www.communityofsaintbenedict.com/our-monastic-life/ And from what I can tell the only male communal Catholic living entity in the state of Connecticut. I'm feeling the calling is more to monastic life than being a Priest, as Priesthood comes with a huge amount of responsibility. So yeah, there's my question really - what do you all know about becoming a Benedictine (or any other Catholic order) Monk, and can one join and take a vow for 3 years, but perhaps relocate to another Monestary like Pluscarden in Scotland within that time, or even leave the grounds of the Monestary, or must others come visit me only? That wouldn't be a problem, I just can't seem to find much about this.
