I wanted to put this one out to the ATS community as I have no explanation for this one. As the thread title says, this one disturbs me the more I think about it.

I am a long time lurker/poster here, if you've seen my previous posts then you will know I am not seeking attention.
For privacy reasons I do not wish to reveal my current location. I am not sure which details are even relevant to this story, please feel free to ask for more info and I will do my best to respond promptly.

Last night, at about 8pm local time, I was driving alone about to join a multilane freeway that runs the length of my home city. I had just come onto the freeway and ran straight into some slow moving traffic.
I proceeded to make my way across to the second lane (first lane being the fast lane), and continued down the road.
Soon I reached the point at which the road dips slightly. On overpass runs across the freeway at this point. At about the same time another driver cuts dangerously into my lane, which I wasn't exactly happy about.
That was the full extent of that, the traffic then continued to move onward.

I write the above to highlight the fact that I was well aware of my present physical position at the time.

A few seconds after the driver had cut in, I literally blink my eyes, and find myself, by my estimates, at least 100 to 200m further back on the same road, still travelling in the same direction with the overpass ahead of me. I was instantly aware that something was wrong. I was not at all hesitant or unsure of my bearings, I was absolutely sure that I was not in the right place. As I continued down this same stretch of tarmac (for the second time), I noticed that the congestion seemed less dense this time.

Being a long time member of ATS, I've picked up on a few things that one should note down in ....such cases?

The time: from what I could tell there was no missing time. Maybe a minute or two since I wasn't 100 percent sure of the time prior to the incident, but no more than that.
Surrounding vehicles: Nothing special, and surround vehicles were not the same the second time around
Lights in the sky: This being an urban area, light pollution is heavy so I cannot be sure
Anything else unusual: There seemed to be an elevated level of police activity on the other side of the freeway, but its quite normal as accidents and collisions are normal.

I had not been drinking, and I do not consume any drugs. I did not feel any physical difference at the time and this quite literally happened in the blink of an eye.

I would appreciate any light anyone could shed on this.

You do see the conflict there? Memory is subjective.

If you had said, I was looking right at my watch when it blinked "backwards" , I would say you were either having an 'episode' or fibbing.

Don't take that personal you did ask for others impressions.

Thanks, I appreciate the response and understand where you are coming from. Perhaps I should have chosen my words more carefully.

By missing time I mean to say that during this "incident" there wasnt an unexpected loss or gain of time.
Some people lose hours, or 5- 10 minutes when they have unexplained experiences. If i did lose or gain time, it could not have been more than a minute or two. I was in a rush at the time, so was watching the clock.

Okay, look at it this way. If you had physically dematerialized and reappearing again on the road you and your cars atoms would have occupied the same space time as other atoms, resulting in an unusually large "fusion" event with associative blast destroying everything for miles, depending.

Sounds like a tiny Time Slip, where you were jolted back in Time/Space. People visit ancient/medieval sites all the time, and hope for such an experience, so consider yourself lucky for the unasked-for experience.

I've read of Time Slips in vehicles, where someone reaches a Stop sign, and suddenly realize they are miles ahead or behind where they thought they should be. Some have even dipped into an alternate reality, and their vehicle is suddenly a different color!

I've researched Time Slips, and the only common detail is that it is usually stormy, with the air feeling heavy or "syrupy."

CASES OF TIME SLIPS

Besides the weather, do you remember if there were any major electronic structures along the freeway, like aerial towers or cell phone towers?

Hope this helps.

Maybe we live in a simulated reality like a video game, and your avatar got wasted by the car that cut you off just prior to the "reset".

This is an extremely important experience... for you. Do not write it off, explain it away, or forget it.

Best wishes.

You failed to mention anything about where, on your "recovery" you saw the car that had just irritated you by cutting in front of you. Would it not have been fairly close to you and have given you some indication of your perceived strange experience? You did mention "surrounding vehicles," but there was no evidence that you were REALLY disturbed by the mentioned driver was not in your visual field, to have virtually disappeared. Now, that should have made a terrific impression upon you and I think the lack of that awareness (or mention to us) tends to not support your case in general.

Apparently your experience is not uncommon. Here's a good book....

I have had a similar experience that landed myself and a passenger several miles and at least an hour off our course.
Apparently this sort thing happens on occasion. Glitch in the simulation?

I am starting to think possibly experiments by CERN or some other factor is causing periodic incursions into alternate universes.
The first of your drive could have been the alternate or you were for a time seeing, after the instant... the alternate. My recent time lapse problem which I posted was entirely different yet they are all explainable if I look at it this way. We learned recently that when we had our strange time problem, some of the guards who work at the local prison also noted some time oddity, I never did get the details of.

The only thing I can be fairly certain of is we (none of us) will get any answer as to what happened.

Really? You would have been thinking of a prior car cutting you off when you suddenly find yourself back where you had just come from?


and find myself, by my estimates, at least 100 to 200m further back on the same road

At this moment you think he should have been looking for the car that had cut him off? Personally I would have forgotten that incident completely in my awe of what just happened.

I have read that many people have had this experience. While I have had some fairly strange occurrences in my life, I am not aware of having this particular type of experience, but I believe that you experienced something unique.

I have seen things that I didn't understand and could never explain. I know those moments of doubt and fear, when you aren't sure if you are losing your, sight or your mind. The fear of speaking of the incident to anyone, and even more afraid of not telling at least one person, just for the record.

We live in a society where normal is the soup du jour, and only the rich, the elite and the powerful are allowed to change the menu. You either eat from the prescribed menu, go hungry or set yourself up as a target where you become fair game.

I am blessed that I have been granted enough days on this Earth that I can utilize my ‘Get Out of Jail Free’ cards on occasion. I can fall back on my kooky, humorous, but highly interesting Auntie status. My crazy, funny, but wise old broad status, or my favorite, intellectually challenging and witty with a strange sense of humor status.

For what it is worth, I believe you, and I think we are idiots for even thinking we know everything that is happening on, in, around and outside of our planet. Everything we have been taught is nothing more than information we obtained from someone else and we have chosen to accept as fact. What we have learned from instinct and experience are the things that we doubt the most. Perhaps it should be the other way around.

Just want to add that I have heard of similar experiences from sane, honest people ...so, despite input to the contrary from those comfy in our current paradigm, I believe it could have happened.

Now... what it really was or meant is a very interesting question... assuming we know enough to even ask relevant questions... which we (mostly) don't.

I believe you experienced quantum jumping. Whether or not it is influenced by a universal time slip, or manipulation by our spirit guides/angels is the question.

I've witnessed this "jumping from point A to point B" with my own eyes involving a friend of mine, and I have another friend that has experienced it.

I "feel" that if you had continued down the highway, you may have been involved in a fatal accident that this "jump" prevented. It could have had something to do with whatever the police were doing on the other side of the road.
We never know when our angels/guides are stepping in to save us.

I am sorry so many of the answers you are getting seem to imply that you have a problem. I can honestly say the same type of incident has happened to both my husband and myself. I can not tell you what you should think but this is what I believe, you changed time lines. I think the accident you so narrowly missed continued on a little further down the road and you died. Your soul was not ready to leave this earthly plane so it shifted dimensions and perhaps joined up or replaced the alternate you. Maybe there was a suicidal "you" that traded places with you. I don't know how it works but I believe what it says in the Bible about a man having a long life span, we just change realities and keep on living. I also think our souls are having multiple experiences at the same time. You were not ready to go. Enjoy life.

Interesting experience. Sounds like a time slip glitch

It seems the car cutting you off was something important. Perhaps you did die and get a restart

I have no explanation or creative ideas to explain your experience, but the sunday before christmas I was driving down a bypass that I know well as did my passenger who has back seat driving tendencies. We needed to come off at a slip road that is well signposted but easy to miss, when I miss it I come off at the next junction on the roundabout. We see the signpost for the slip road, continue driving in the left hand lane ready to turn off but the slip road didn't appear. Then we found ourselves about 3 miles further down the road without any memory of going past the roundabout that is the second option for coming off the bypass.

If I had been in the car alone I would have felt that perhaps I just hadn't noticed going passed the slip road and the roundabout but for two of us to miss two turn offs seems very unusual to me, especially given my passenger knows the road as well as I do and has driven it herself many times.

we were both confused by this experience, but given there was no logical explanation we put it down to being one of those things.

Your experience seems a little more freaky given you travelled the same ground twice rather than lost memory of travelling on a particular stretch as we did.

This in Your comment here grabbed My attention. " I also think our souls are having multiple experiences at the same time."
I was just talking to someone the other day about this. I believe it explains Deja-Vu!? Perhaps in another dimension we are having a VERY similar life, or the same really,(sharing souls) and at certain times, the other us does something we are about to do here in this universe at close enough to the same time, (or at the same time) that we cross brain waves, for lack of a better way to put it. Afterall, what are our brain waves but electricity and have patterns, right? So when these cross, or connect somehow, we have our Deja-Vu.(?)
Or all this could be happening here on this planet, now, with another who is sharing our soul. Not another us, but someone completely different.(?) Could this be what having a true soul mate means?
Just some thoughts I wanted to share with You...... Syx.

edit on 28-12-2014 by SyxPak because: (no reason given)

Hehe you said it, not me. But...If I did happen to dematerialize/rematerialize (without wiping out half the city of course) there must surely be some scared drivers out there, since they would have seen a car disappear in front of their eyes.
