It's true, fear is the anchor that binds us in this plane, every day our subconscious is exposed by thousands of images and words and symbols that
either distract us, or create fear and irrational paranoia...
So when in the near state of OOBe'ing, I suppose the fear of stepping into the unknown is what causes us to hold back, and that's why we get the
Then, in the half awake, half asleep paralysed state of semidreaming, our minds then bombard us with a terrifying sensory overload, and I've never
seen anything or heard anything stranger in my life, except in this state.
I suppose my rational mind believes its the manifestations of our fear, that in our lucid state, create the shadow beings and figures and strange
sounds... a combination of relaxative hormones and adrenaline, and a touch of the imagination.
But i cannot shake the creepy feeling that other entities 'feed' or observe us when in these unnusual states.
Just too many similarities.
Also, the sounds... I've heard chatter, noises, undescribable sounds that feel like i'm tuning into elsewhere....
On a side note, I'm also into the idea that stages of consciousness can take your mind elsewhere and maybe activate various parts of the brain, like
remote viewing etc... A story I read somewhere about a kid playing wrestling with his pal, unfortunately he got into too tight a headlock or something
and passed out...
Then spent the next few years of his life in a bizarre world, where humans lived in strange circular stone buildings and everything was not quite
right, yet strangely familiar... a feeling of nostalgia or melancholy overwhelmed him....
But in actual fact he was out cold for about six seconds, but he swore it felt like forever.... and felt terribly sad to come back here...
and another story of a bloke, who shall we say experimented with a certain illegal substance and reported many times that he often visited a strange
place of humanoids in purple hoods, in a bizarre realm.
Fair enough, a typical story of somebody taking chemicals you may say...
But years later he went to a car boot sale and spotted a hauntingly familiar sight in a painting... he studied it and saw in fascination that
everything in it was like the place he had visited, purple hooded figures and strange alien environment
He then asked the bloke where he got the inspiration for the painting and was told in a hushed tone, that it was on the exact same substance and it
was what he himself had experienced on that trip, many times....
Incidentally, the two blokes also agreed that when they visited this place, they felt very unwelcome and intrusive.
So basically what I'm getting at, is maybe it's just all coincidence that OOBe'rs and sleep paralysis victims experience similar journeys and
witness the dark figures, or maybe... just maybe something far more interesting is out there and we are only just getting to it.
Just food for thought anyhow.
