Seeing the number 44, phenomenon or evolution?

        Over the years I have studied many strange phenomenon. Like UFOs many of the things that occur in this world can be explained. But there's always that small percentage that continue to this day, as being unexplained. Through most of these occurrences there seems to be a common thread. The most frequent of these is that people for the most part, do not pay attention to what's going on around them. It would seem modern society has created a breed of drones that only see what governments and corporations want them to see. And people that point out these phenomenon are generally labeled as malcontents, mentally ill and considered disruptive to society. They do not fit into society’s little square box and as a consequence are shunned, treated as outcasts or worse. But if you look at the various phenomenon, a thread of commonality becomes quite apparent.
     For example, people who see UFOs  generally spend more time looking up. People who see ghosts pay more attention to their peripheral vision and pay more attention to their surroundings. With that said, you can see that a great deal depends on where our attention is focused. As a kid growing up we were told that we only use 10% of our brain and that the majority of our brain was not used. We now know that the majority of the brain is dedicated to vision. What is interesting is that only a small percentage of our brain is actually conscious of what the brain records and the eyes see. We can stand in a room full of people and see everyone in the room but only remember one or two people. I have seen people recall detailed information from crime scenes when put under hypnosis, that otherwise could not remember anything. As we see these numbers occur, it is quite possible that what we are witnessing is an evolution in our consciousness. It is possible our bodies and minds are simply trying to adapt to a technological society that is bombarded with information. The amount of information that our minds consume is thousand times more than our ancestors of only 50 years ago. In addition, the information that our grandparents were presented with was mostly honest and straightforward. In today's society we must deal with dishonest information, subliminal and psychological (such as that found in advertising) government propaganda and the mass dissemination of misinformation that is either intentional or unintentional distributed through the media and Internet. Is it possible that these numbers such as 44 are simply our subconscious trying to tell us what to trust and what not to trust? That our subconscious has not quite yet figured out how to digest the information that is being presented? As most of us seem to be introverts it is also possible that our subconscious is trying to compensate for a lack of interaction with other people.    As an experiment in observation try sitting in a shopping mall and simply people watch. Take note of what people observe and what they don't observe. I think you will be surprised how much we as a people, do not see each other, much less inanimate objects.
