do you ever get the sense that under some prescribed but occulted protocol you perform 'karma swaps' with friends and associates?

i dont mean do you think that definitely is real and happens, i mean, have you ever had that sense that some transaction has taken place

i think i'm going trough something like this at the moment actually, to the point that i feel i'm reliving this friend's past experiences.

No actually, not even a little. Friends will relate certain social experiences they have with me and I can never imagine anything similar happening to me because it hasnt. Same with coworkers, Ill hear about the in the workplace and its like we work at different shops

What is a karma swap exactly, in this context? That you are being punished for their sins? Or rewarded for their good deeds?

one true story i can use to illustrate the phenomenon. i know an experimental musician from Burnley. Burnley is not the sort of place which typically breeds experimental musicians, but here he is, in London, and he's doing well. he's released various records on labels he admires, he's playing gigs all over the world, he's networking furiously, he's attending shows and clubs and bars and meeting hundreds of like-minded people. then one day another boy from Burnley shows up in London. and he meets **** and they realise they are not just from the same town but from the same cul-de-sac. and they end up taking 5 tabs of acid together and since that day my friend has never released another album. and moreover the other boy has subsequently released albums on all the same labels that my friend did. taken over his entire friendship group and stolen his life. karma swap (of the hostile variant)

that sounds like 90s thriller single white female.

If you mean you feel like you're carrying the cross for some other smug fucker's sins...sure, every day, lol.

But do you mean people who swoop in with a cheap imitation of something you've spent years doing, and then win all the prizes? Like, how Frankie Boyle made it by doing a lousy, third-rate impersonation of Jerry Sadowitz?

Plutarch's scientific explanation stated that the eyes were the chief, if not sole, source of the deadly rays that were supposed to spring up like poisoned darts from the inner recesses of a person possessing the evil eye. Plutarch treated the phenomenon of the evil eye as something seemingly inexplicable that is a source of wonder and cause of incredulity.[a] Pliny the Elder described the ability of certain African enchanters to have the "power of fascination with the eyes and can even kill those on whom they fix their gaze".https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Evil_eye#cite_note-13

The idea of the evil eye appears in the poetry of Virgil in a conversation between the shepherds Menalcas and Damoetas.[c] In the passage, Menalcas is lamenting the poor health of his stock: "What eye is it that has fascinated my tender lambs?".
