Wonderer’s thoughts—Exploring Cultures

I’ve always wondered what it would be like to travel another or multiple parts of the world to see what their culture would be like and explore the historical places or events that defines that part of the world.

I so wish I could go those places. But it’s bad when you don’t have the funds to do so.


Lost Time Forgotten

It seems as time goes on we sometimes forget about what we leave behind. Somethings we remember as well as somethings well forgetful. How can that be?

Somethings we remember because it maybe traumatic that may affected so many lives. Examples of remembrance would be like some extreme acts of Mother Nature and wars9-11,  Berlin Wall, Pearl Harbor, Chernobyl and the Concentration Camps.

    Some things we tend to forget or leave behind. What about the abandoned land, property, businesses, homes, and other types of property and could it become in use? What about the events throughout history? What about the asylums? What about those who live in poverty? What about those who don’t have access to everyday needs? Did (insert event/promise/help/etc here) ever happen or is going to happen? It seems like we tend to forget those things that may have a dark history to it. A dark history when there was experimentations going on, maybe some inhuman things, or even the turn-of-the-century was changing.

The questions are:
How can we bring back what is forgotten?
Is the forgotten gone for a purpose or accidental reasoning?
Is the forgotten gone because we just “forgotten” about it?
How could we just “forget” what is just forgotten?
Could we have done things differently?
Should we just leave history be history?
Could we change the future history for the better?
And so many more to ask…………………………………………..

Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum, Weston, West Virginia

The Asylum is second largest hand carved stone structure in the world compared to the largest is the Kremlin in Moscow, Russia.

You may wonder what types of history belongs inside. You may imagine back when it was in use, it may have had a dark past. From various treatments and medications to overpopulation of patients and other variables.

Something tells me you can still feel the history of this place

The Encountress

Throughout time, there are just things that are just unexplainable. People may combined all the oddities to the subject of the paranormal or the strange and unusual.

Sometimes, people are more attracted to the paranormal or strange and unusual. But, how much can one person be attracted to this? Is it one or up to a few chances to experience these happenings?

Some people don’t have experience anything at all while others may experience a lot. From talking to people or reading/seeing vlogs/ blogs, and etc., people just may experience things once to a lot.

For me, I’ve noticed a lot ever since I was young. Just things like the unexplained. From the 3 dark monk figures, “Distraught Mediterranean Man” which is a Mediterranean looking male in his mid 20’s-30’s with caramel skin/black short rough hair covered in mud, blood, and dirt with full black eyes, the Central-Asian man with all black eyes, multiple accounts with the “hat man”, snickering ghost children, old man with the top hat (experienced at an old gothic-styled asylum), long-vailed nun or nurse (experienced at an old gothic-styled asylum),  bathtub dummy with eyelids shut with “eyes” showing (experienced at an old gothic-styled asylum), “Jason” (from the horror movie) figure in the field, living dreams, de ja vu and of course the white shadow/cloud following.

These are the some of the more strangest things that are listed in the paragraph above. Some are re-occurring a lot compared to others.

Can anyone help me explain to me these occurrences and odd behaviors of the unknown?

Is it some sort of riddle of sorts? Is it something that I should be worried about?

Unknown Presences

In the world there’s some things that cannot be explained at all. Some may have theories or science behind it but not a definite answer while others say something along the lines of the paranormal or superstition.

Can it all be explained? Could it be a blend of sorts? That is a mystery within itself.

Within the past few days, I’ve been able to go revisit two historical places in the home state of mine.

During the walk around, in a couple to few spots, I felt a weird sense of not being welcomed in one facility and in the other facility I felt like a presence made me feel like I belonged there which made feel all shaken and rejuvenated. That, I was not expecting at that particular location with it’s history not exactly being the best and being filled with people that may not have been sane. Everyone may have other weird happenings to them like cold chills, eery presence, goose bumps, and so on and so forth.

Some may believe it’s about the spirits that may remain on Earth and haven’t passed through fully to the other side. Others may think that the Earth may be balancing itself out in that particular point or area or that it has some sort of other scientific explanation.

So, can this all be explained? Can this still go on to be a mystery?
