" Synchromysticism:
The art of realizing meaningful coincidence in the seemingly mundane with mystical or esoteric significance."

The X-Files is Just One Big Stephen King Carney Sideshow Nightmare, Right Mike Clelland?-)

Opening scenes of 'The X-Files' episode 'Invocation'
Stephen King was born on September 21st:-)
I couldn't help but think of
Mike Clelland (and Chris Knowles) when I was watching 'The X-Files' episode 'Invocation' starring
Billie Eilish's mum Maggie Baird as a psychic named Sharon Pearl.
Remember, Remember ... the Synchromysticism Surrounding Robert Patrick?
Billie Eilish was born in 2001, and 9/11 happened roughly 9 months after the above X-Files episode starring her mother aired:-)
Mike Clelland's (and Chris Knowles') obsession with the schlocky X-Files series was how a 'Blair Witch' type symbol appears on Sharon Pearl's head when she goes into a epileptic trance.

You can listen to Mike rave on like a fan boy about 'The X-Files' in the You Tube below:-)
But the irony here is that the Blair Witch writer/director
Daniel Myrick ended up making the film 'Skyman', which Dan admits in a interview with Mike's mate Ryan Sprauge on Ryan's podcast show 'Somewhere in the Skies' that he had read Mike's book 'The Messengers' and loosely based the character Carl on Mike:-)
And we know that Chris Carter was inspired to make the season 7
X-Files episode 'X-Cops' with a hand held camera technique after watching 'The Blair Witch Project', if you read the trivia section at episode's IMDB page.
Personally I think 'The X-Files' TV show is just a pile of owl shit, and if I hadn't have bought the Chris Knowles co-authored book
'The Complete X-Files' years ago and come across it this year in my bookshelf while doing a clean-out, I wouldn't have even bothered making it up to season 8 and this 'Invocation' episode.
This particular episode of 'The X-Files' was nothing much more than a fan boy mash-up of Stephen King's stories 'The Shining' and 'IT', which makes me think that Chris Carter could have just mashed those King titles together and called the episode 'SHIT';-)

I also noticed that the director of that episode of 'The X-Files' passed away on August 11th -
