I think what I have to share with you all today could be considered psychic phenomena.
This doesn't have anything to do with 11s necessarily, just something I've been experiencing lately.
OK, here goes. I play a lot of online backgammon and for months now when I'm playing and my turn to roll the dice comes up sometimes I think to myself, " I sure could use a 2-3." And I get it !
Now I'm not going to try to convince you that this happens every time I roll the dice or I'd be in Las Vegas cleaning house, not posting here.
The thing is that just like seeing 11 after the hour repeatedly, there comes a point where it can no longer be considered coincidence because it happens way too frequently. And this is where I am today, playing backgammon.
Two days ago I was playing a game and I was in a bad position and I thought to myself "I need a 4, then a big double." So I rolled the dice and got the 4 that I needed. My opponent rolled and moved then I rolled double 6's ! And that's why I'm writing today. When this happened the other day it was the straw that broke the camels back. I asked for a 4 then a large double and I got it ! This has now happened so many times over the months that it can no longer be considered a coincidence.
Am I psychic? Not in the least, because I have no control over the dice and I probably lose as many games as I win. I only know that sometimes, more than could be considered coincidence, I get what I "think" about. I think this falls into the Law of Attraction.
And to take things a step further, since I've been experiencing this phenomenon for months now, I've noticed this too ! Sometimes when I project a thought, like "I need a 6-1, my next roll is a 5-3. But a roll or two later I get the 6-1 I needed and it is still a valid roll. So, what I'm getting at is that sometimes when you project a thought and you don't get what you wanted or expected, try waiting a moment. Don't give up, don't give in, don't despair and deflect what you desire, just wait a moment. Just give it some time.
Quickly I want to say hello and thanks to Gene for the new boards and for his time posting to what people write. Going to say hello to all the other top tier 11es here. Big thanks to Dred for all of the constant posting. It's always great to hear from you, and Lin, and all of the others.
K ! Bye now ! 11erSteve
