Originally posted by zlnetworksThen I saw total blackness no lights and I could not scream for some reason , I just could not move. I
tried and tried for so long. Then the lights flashed on the entire room(Or Area) was filled with light.
This is called sleep paralysis, or back in the day, old-hag syndrome.
There are many people who confuse sleep paralysis attacks with UFO/ET abductions, religious/demonic experiences, etc.
It is common for someone who experiences sleep paralysis to be unable to move (hence paralysis), have auditory hallucinations (like hearling slams,
bangs, chains rattling, moaning, screaming, humming, static, voices, laughing, etc.), and visual hallucinations (like flashes of light, glowing orbs,
feeling and seeing ones self float out of their bed, often towards a door or window, see demons, shadowy or shady humanoid/deformed figures, people
you know (even yourself sometimes in 3rd person), etc). It is also common to feel like someone else is in the room watching you, or even sitting on
the bed with you, and sometimes even sitting on top of you.
Scientists have also been able to recreate such experiences by electromagnetically stimulating certain areas of the brain with electro-magnetic coils
placed outside the head. The study was to investigate why people who live near large power-lines and hub-stations (which give of strong, alternating
magnetic fields), and ley lines (the strong magnetic 'veins' of the earth) tend to have more poltergeist and abduction-type reports than others.
I don't think it was a real abduction, just a cool albeit scary non-drug induced hallucination.
Everyone is thought to have at least one case of sleep paralysis in their life, but some don't and some have more.
Hope this helps a bit.
