Ok so once a day, every day, for ~2 months now, I look at the clock and it's 13:37. No, I don't see a minute or two before and wait, I just grab my cell phone, look at the time and it's 13:37, every single day. What's even more weird is that when I was younger (10 years ago or so) I had the same thing happening to me as well, although it wasn't 13:37. It was XX:59, I mean, almost every single time it was XX:59.
I'm not sure when and why but I stopped seeing XX:59 that much and never had anything similar happening to me for 10 years... Until now :-O
Does anyone else ever experience this, maybe with another time?
The body has an internal clock, it lets you know when you should feel drowsy/when to wake up even if you are in a cave.
However... what you are describing is PEERING at the clock at 1:37. You look at it all the time, you just don't make a conscious note to yourself as to the time on the clock. The first few times you were in front of your clock, and peered at it cause its' alignment was intriguing to your subconscious, you trained yourself to always PEER at the clock then, even tho you had been glancing or taking note of the time some other way.
I've had the ability to wake up at any time of day, and know to within 5 minutes what time it is. And that's because when I was a kid, I'd wake up look at the clock. Then I used that knowledge to guess and guess til I was able to synchronize my internal clock with time itself.
That birthday thing is very familiar to me. Very often, when I grab my iPhone to see what time it is, it show 13.12 (01.12 PM) which is my birthday (December 13th). But it´s not only when I check what time it is. Often, when I watch icehockey games, i check how much time is left to be played, what do I see? 13 minutes 12 seconds. Same on soccer games. How long have they played? 13 minutes and 12 seconds.
