Has anyone else had a similar experience?
Before I start replying to some of the individual posts, (which may take some, ehm, time ) I'd just like to give a big THANK YOU to all who have posted their experiences and thoughts so far - and to all those who may still do so.
You may be (or maybe not) interested in knowing that I have opened a (non-commercial) blog dedicated exclusively to "time slips".
Because it's a subject that fascinates me - and with good reason...
Also, I don't think there is enough (web) space dedicated exclusively to FIRST-HAND accounts of this specific type of experience:
i.e. to (more or less) sudden and/or brief 'distortions' in the perception of time / space - preferably without the intervention of any PERCEIVABLE external forces (unless they are 'forces' - e.g. geomagnetism - from the environment itself).
(Many of you have given 'perfect' examples of this type of experience - some of them almost shockingly reminiscent of my own, but more on that later -; another example - a very famous one - would be the 1901 Versailles incident that has been discussed on this website before.)
The blog is not visible to the wider public yet, because I am still collecting experiences (AND because I am involved in managing a small constellation of loosely related blogs set up by a small group of interesting individuals ; ), but I do hope it can go public soon.
So, if you feel inclined to do so, please send in your account - just copy and paste it - to the email address listed at the bottom of this post.
Your "testimony" can be either totally anonymous or "all-inclusive".
If you'd rather remain anonymous, I would just ask you to include a name or initials, the date (at least approximate) AND the place where the experience happened (this is rather important).
Time fascinates me deeply. The whole "what is time any way" issue. As far as I understand, time and space are interlinked in a 4-dimensional tissue dat can be ripped, stretched and pressed together. And since the Universe is expanding, this means that space and time are also expanding. I read somewhere that time has it's own speed, the speed of light. But I think it is strange that only the time component would be affected, yet not the space components (in case of space-time distortion).
Does anybody know of experiments involving changing (the flow) of time?
I am sorry about starting every sentence with an I.
I used to think that somehow we were "shown" what was going to happen. Now I wonder whether there might have been some sort of time warping going on. I really do not know. Maybe it was an echo from the future.
Numerous times through my life I have recalled memories in detail in conversation with family members, and they will often say "how do you remember that, you weren't born yet." This happened more often as a child, but it still happens once and a while as an adult but much less frequently. They are never the same memories, and I've never heard anyone talk about them before, at least to my knowledge.
