Is this empirical? Is it always three? I've killed before, and it never involved sets of three. Of course, if i went out of my way to count the threes, that'll happen.
I kind of have a problem with this superstition probably because the one time I brought it to one of my mentors, it was ripped out of my mind and I got slapped repeatedly for bringing something so 'foolish' to them. I'd say that logical theory and foresight aren't quite as naturally connected as we feel they may be?
I'm making assumptions here, your quite right that the act of observing is a factor it's-self,
the topic of Karma is a dodgy one at he best of times, because it's interpreted in a multitude of ways, which is why i gave three different perspectives on it, i don't know.
I have personally observed with hindsight the effect of three's as prominent, but i have observed plenty of times when it wasn't, or it came as a single polar opposite.
I sometimes refer to karma when i should refer to 'Unintended effects'
Your mentors might well have been justifyed in what they did as the 'karma' that you brought with you could well have been a one of the many very silly versions that permeate our society
Draw? Don't take the stuff I say personally, I just don't quite get stuff a lot of the time
Don't be silly, it's better to argue an then understand than agree and never get it (both ways), i do talk some crap sometimes anyway!
It worry's me that their are probably a lot of people out their that could be unintentionally killing with magic, the mental health system is not prepared for cases like this,
I remember seeing a new's report of a man who worked in a nursing home who was witnessed saying 'i hate the night shifts, someone always dies at 2:30 when i do a night shift'
and that night an old lady died at 2:30 and the man was arrested for murder, it struck me as a paranormal phenomenon for many reasons, but primarily because he blamed it on a demon.
One day our society will have to tackle the problem of spiritual crime, clearly a hard crime to prove, an even harder crime to punish.This post has been edited by Draw: Nov 22 2010, 03:26 PM
