      People Itch At The Same Time?

      So this is one of my TOP QUESTIONS. It happens in 3 different ways. First way. Me & some people itch at the SAME time! It's like synchronicity but faster. Sometimes people notice it, sometimes they don't & sometimes only I notice. It seems as the itch travels around to get someones attention then they'll look around or blow it off no matter if they're indoors or outdoors. It seems like the itch is almost telling "us" to be aware of something sudden. Any Ideas? Or links in regards to the post?

      Or it could just be allergies.

      We actually have a team here on DV devoted to researching that very phenomena. For some reason not many studies have been done on this occurrence, and typically we only have anecdotal evidence to support the notion that the itch is contagious or some type of synchronistic force.

      We've related this itch to shared dreaming through our studies. PM me if you're interested in learning more or becoming a part of our team.

      Yeah I thought maybe I was over analyzing, although it's interesting because there's always a source the itch will lead to or link back to. When I witness this, I trace the itch that moving through people. And when i pinpoint it to someone they will drop something, or that persons phone will go off (ring).

      Wahaha I think this is very interesting though, well like Jigga_justin said it maybe linked to shared dreaming. I believe that "itch" is somehow stimulated by some kind 'connected' thought by someone or maybe it's physical connection with everyone. I've heard that your thinking actually moves the electronic particles in the physical world, like stimulating itchy thingy on your skin. (and thats how levitation works) I might try this with my family member + dream partner! thanks for interesting and funny thought

      I've heard that yawns are not contagious, but I've witnessed the phenomenon you describe with yawns instead of itches, even over a distance of 50 feet.

      I have yet to find any tangible proof for these actions as they seem to follow no rules, but being an observational person, it seems more prevalent when people are not aware they are being watched for a response or action.

      I feel there must be some connection somehow, but damned if my intellectual side doesn't tell me that it's mere coincidence, and people are just itchy and breathing too shallow most of the time.
