Probably the freakiest thing I know of happened to a close friend. He and his girlfriend both woke up at the same time in the middle of the night.
Before they had time to say anything to each other, both their mobiles rang, which freaked them right out as you'd imagine. They also said
they felt a presence in the room.
It turned out when they checked the last number dialled, the mobiles had called each other and logged the same time. There was also a message which
he played to me, and thinking about it still gives me chills. You couldn't make anything out clearly, but it sounded like a little girl saying
something. Ow ow ow... I don't even like thinking about it. I asked him to try and download the message somehow, but it disappeared - and he
didn't delete it. It only came up on his voicemail, not his girlfriends's.
I have seen something that doesn't fit into anything at all - not a ufo or weird weather effect. I posted a thread about it ages ago but got no
useful responses. I was with some friends on top of Mt. Haleakala in Maui and we all saw this really weird white line, quite faint, probably about
third magnitude, stretching from horizon to horizon. You couldn't really focus on it properly - I said it looked as if it was made of sparks, one of
my friends said it looked like a vibrating guitar string.
What made it odder was that it was traversing the sky slowly but evenly. Then it faded out after about 10 minutes... then a few minutes later it was
back again doing the same thing. The only thing I can think of is that it might have been a test of a Star Wars weapons system. It wasn't any of
the following, all of which I have seen: a meteorite, a bolide, a vapour trail.
The other weird thing that happened to me was a really formative experience. I'd been doing t'ai chi for a few years and was working on a cruise
ship. One night after the disco ended I wound up hanging with the DJ and his cabin mate in their cabin. We were all pretty drunk and they asked me
what it was I'd been doing on the beach. I told them it was t'ai chi... to cut a long story short, I tried an experiment. Darren, the DJ, was
lying on the top bunk (the cabins were pretty small). I went up to him and assumed a standing posture, extended my arm, and put my right forefinger
resting on the "third eye" position on his forehead. (There are reasons for this but they're trivial so I won't bother going through it.)
I said, "look, I don't know if anything's going to happen... let's just see if it does..." and settled myself to relax as much as possible with
After maybe a minute I felt something very strange: a kind of squirting sensation in the middle of the tip of my forefinger, a couple of mm under the
skin - right where the bone is: and the same feeling at the same time in the middle of the first (top) joint of that finger.
Now I'm sure I didn't move at all, but Darren immediately jerked his head back and said, "***king hell!" Myself and the other guy kept
asking him what had happened... and the thing is, people don't really have a vocabulary to describe this stuff, but he just kept saying, "it felt
like the back of my head came off".
I never tried to repeat the experiment, but up until then I'd been an agnostic about whether to full-on accept that chi was a real thing or
some sort of Chinese metaphor. After that time I accepted it as being "real", somehow, whatever that means. I know I didn't move, I know that
what I felt was inside my finger, and yet it clearly affected Darren. I puzzled that one over for a long time, I can tell you.
Since then I've studied with people who can use their chi to affect others in a similarly "supernatural" way, but I don't think anything of it,
now - it's just an ability that like any other comes as a mixture of talent and training.
