I have noticed a development that is freaking me out lately. Certain shades of red, when in certain patterns, or situations are scaring me.

For example: When I see a little animation, such as my system tray icon for my WiFi adapter, I freeze and I get chills down my spine. In pictures where there is some kind of representation but no movement, and when they seem conjure up silence in my head, I get very scared.

Certain shapes have always scared me (Very abstract, straight out of a dream like shapes), such as the way my vacuum cleaner handle looks in the dark (That dates back to an old dream I had about sharks with black fins when I was three. The dream still scares me to this day), but lately the color red has been scaring me more, and more, and more, day by day. Bright red makes me freeze in my tracks.

Another example is Shurikane's avatar. It's not the person on it that looks scary, it's because it is combined with that distinct shade of red. If it were bright blue, or green, I would think that it would look rather cool, but the red makes me freeze in my seat.

I have uploaded a few images that scare me...can I get a little feedback? I was wondering if anyone here could help me out and help me uncover this memory.

The color red is determined to have emotional effects on your brain chemistry, you may be more susceptible to this than others. it promotes anger and violence. this has been proven in psychiatric hospitals, that is why you do not see reds in psych wards, just whites and blues.

My theory: stop playing so many violent games and seek medical attentions.

Yeah, I knew that, but I didn't really think that's why...

None whatsoever. This is the part that really freaks me out.

I find injuries disgusting, but hell, they don't scare me...The stuff on rotten.com I actually find fascinating, it's just little scrapes that gross me out.

Kind of ironic.

EDIT: I JUST UPDATED MY SITE. I HAVE INFO ABOUT ANOTHER DREAM I HAD...IT MAY HELP LINK THE COLORS TOGETHER.

Are you afraid of the direction west? Do you fear California or L.A. in general? Is blue your favorite color? Do you typically wear blue clothes, espescially bandanas?

Most importantly, do you find yourself crip walking with regularity?

If so, you may find that you have "West Side" complex. I suggest prison.

i never said injuries disgust me...it's just the "sight of blood" that nauseates me
I believe it's called..Hematophobia

Did something 'red' ever disturb you then....i'm trying to think really hard right now to figure out some possible logic explaination for this because it seems interesting that you would freeze up on this color

The only thing i completely freeze up on is when i'm holding a knife to my chest...scares the shit outta me everytime and my reasons for holding back are quite simple, though I don't discuss these details to public either, gots'ta know me first
.......suicide isn't the answer, just find something worth living for and focus on that.......

now i'm thinking, red=evil & hunger from my knowledge.....maybe i can build off that

Ugh...I get memories of something completely red. Kind of like the bright red you see in paint.

But then the fear mounts...

What fucking creeps me out is that this supressed memory bears every single mark of alien abduction...read it up online. It shows all the signs, athough it is highly unlikely. More likely, it is just a dream I had, but never remembered.

I kind of remember seeing all red...with total silence. When I focus real hard, I hear all kinds of people screaming...Kind of like chaos, like Doomsday.

I used to have these dreams where I would see chicks (baby chickens) chirping, and all of a sudden a monster would pop up and roar at the top of it's lungs...

...Holy shit, I think I'm getting somewhere. When I played Descent when I was little, I was always killed by the level seven boss...I would frequently have dreams about level eight and beyond...at the end of some of the weirder dreams, that monster dream would pop up. In Descent, when your ship gets badly damaged, your screen flashes that EXACT same color of red.

The funny thing is, all the Descent dreams I had were the best dreams of my life...except for the one where the worst "Screaming Monster" dream ever was. It it, I was in a never ending tunnel maze filled with green and golden robots and monsters, and lots of invulnerability and shield power ups. After that, I emerged in an apartment with my mom's friend Mary...very creepy.

Now that a few minutes have passed, the screaming with the redness has vanished...This is fucking creeping me out. I must know more...

UPDATE: THE SCREAMING RETURNED. I REMEMBER SITTING IN THE CAFETERIA LAST YEAR, I LOOKED AT MY WATCH, AND IT WAS 11:52. I LOOKED AT MY WATCH AGAIN, ABOUT TWO SECONDS LATER, AND IT WAS 11:57, AND THE WHOLE CAFETERIA WAS INACTIVE AND QUIET. IF YOU READ UP ONLINE, THE APPARENT LOSS OF TIME, THAT MEANS AN ALIEN ABDUCTION, WHICH I AM NOW FINDING TO BE MORE AND MORE TRUE.

resisting... urge to post... in bold red font....

Dude take it easy. It's very doubtful that repressed memories are real, no serious psychologist or health professional gives them any credence. As for remembering something trivial like looking at your watch a year ago, dude, if you can remember useless shit like that then there really is something wrong with you. That's superhuman.

In all seriousness memory is very unreliable. If you want some advice try searching for some serious information about memory and stay away from whatever geocities shit you're reading now. There's a good article on memory here (note the 'accuracy of memory' section).

ahh fuck it...

hmmm..ok, the whole alien abduction is kinda going off to something else, though it does seem somewhat understandable...i always believed in aliens, but i dont make a big deal out of it.

and hey maybe it was a dream..still locked in your subconscious where you don't realize it...in my...dream i don't speak of...there's lots of red, all blood..and alotta crying....and hell maybe that's why im so nauseated at the sight of blood because that dream is too vivid

also maybe u should lay off the video games;), they do have warnings and such saying it can hurt ur mind or what not, jus read the warnings..it's funny the things it can cause and i bet no one ever payed attention to them

maybe if you stare at red so much it'll go away
...or go see a therapist who does hypnotism, maybe he can find the 'repressed memory'

EDIT: oh yea, i've had those "time lapses" before too, i lose 10 minutes at times, literatly have no idea how it happens

you have not been abducted by aliens.

the mind can switch its consciousness on or off depending on all kinds of factors, and an alien abduction theory fails occam's razor miserably.

moreover, the more you think about it, the more intensified it will become. that's natural also.

Yeah, I overcame the fear somewhat. It just creeps me out, and now barely gives me a chill. I must have a had a real shitty dream...Man, I have got to see a hypnotist. I really want to know what was in that dream.

Anyway, I took a test to see if I was abducted by aliens...I wasn't. I didn't have enough "yes" answers...stupid ass fear, anyway.

*Looks up Occam's Razor on Google*

Wow, that shit really does fail Occam's Razor horribly...just like religion. Clearly both are bullshit.
