Hi, the following account may not seem like a big deal but it was very weird to me at the time and I am just curious to hear peoples' thoughts and opinions on it.

Not 100% sure this thread is in the right area, so feel free to move it.

This took place a few years ago when I was still living at my parent's house. I was sitting, fully-clothed, watching TV around 9 o' clock at night on the living room couch. The next thing I knew I woke up on the bathroom floor in my underwear. It seemed I had been sleeping in a fetal position on the bath mat. I was extremely disoriented, but once I got up and exited the bathroom I saw that it was 11:30 PM and my clothes were on the floor in front of the couch.

I have no history of sleepwalking, blacking out, mental illness, or unexplained nudity and have had not such experiences since. I have no memory of what happend other than I was sitting watching TV and the next thing I knew I woke up on the bathroom floor two and a half hours later.

The next day I went to see my older brother. He's three years older and lived about two hours away. He's actually my half-brother, we have the same mother, but we were raised believing we were full brothers. (That is a whole other story, but I thought this info might be important to someone. He's also my only sibling.)

Anyway, after my parents and I arrived at his house, my brother and I had a chance to talk privately and he desperately wanted to tell me something strange that had happened to him the night before. He had been watching TV at around 9 at night and the next thing he knew, he had woken up on his bathroom floor in his underwear at around eleven thirty very disoriented with no memory of past watching TV around nine.

Needless tosay, he was pretty freaked out when I told him the same thing occured to me, though I got the feeling he only half believed me. We did have a history of winding each other up. And as things like this go we each just kind of forgot about it and haven't talked about it since.

I am trying to anticipate some possible queries, and neither one of us was on drugs or other substances at the time, and neither one of us is a real pretty site in our underwear. Also, I was home alone as per my memory before and after the missing period so it is doubtful he could have known what had occured to me. And he was alone in his house as well.

I am very interested to hear what people think, but if you are just going to write a one line joke or dismissal, please refrain. I am looking for a possible explanation or general thoughts on what happened and am open to all ideas.

I know you are all very witty and there is probably a wealth of jokes to make, but please worthwhile responses only.

I don't think you'll get an explanation here (how could you?), but publicly recording such an experience is in itself a very useful thing to do: not only for you, to get it "off your chest", but to others who might have experienced something similar.

The only thing that I can think of is pretty sick but judging by the state of the world today I may as well throw it in here as a possibility.

My theory is that perhaps you fell victim to some form of date-rape drug? were you drinking/eating anything leading up to 9pm that could have been spiked prior? (obviously this theory has your half-brother as the prime suspect)

Aside from that I have no idea, for two different people to have this same experience at the same time makes it all the more peculiar.

Actually, I think that's a very good thought.

Obviously, I am not saying that's what happened; I am not even saying it's likely to have happened. (It's probably highly UN-likely, considering there were two people involved.)

But the thought alone deserves a star for its intelligence.

He was a two hour drive away at the time. I can't imagine who could have orchestrated drugging us both or for what purpose, but thanks for your thoughts.

That wasn't something I'd considered but is certainly a chilling, yet remote, possibility.

I am definitely open to any explanation at this point.

I think it might be a good idea to repost this in the thread called "What is the strangest thing you've experienced?" (or something like that), to get this story more exposure.

I'd really love to hear other people's explanations.

Thanks for the suggestion. I think I will post it somewhere else. I should have title this post something shocking to draw people in. Like all the folks that say "Real Alien Proof" and then the post is something like "Don't you think Obama is an alien. It all fits!"

Sometimes life and reality can seem to skip.

When we go to sleep or rather shut down our external perception devices,we are usually aware of whats going on.

Now at every second of your life your brain is working.Atleast i think so.Anyways many of us can percieve dreams when we are asleep.

Many scientists,doctors whatever,will come to say that these dreams are usually the result of our brains sorting out the information we have recently and sometimes not so recently gained.

Now on the other hand.There are those of us who are active within our perceptions.In many cases they call this sleepwalking.Which in itself doesnt explain very much about it.Some scientists say that this is due to a chemical imbalance,where as we are not producing enough of the chemical type neuro aesthetic that is used in sleep paralysis.

In retro-spect sleep paralysis is the name given to the effect of waking or going to sleep and not being able to move.

Alright so here we have a strange occurance,not noramla by any means.And in this i say unto your own experiences.

Couple this with a duo type phenomena within the same time period. What i would do at first is look at the two parts or more if you can break this thing down.Something happened a blackout of sorts where you have no idea what happened.

On the paranormal side of things.
There are many different fields one could look at in this perspective.

Spectral as in poltergeist type phenomena.Where as a high level poltergeist type specter,ghost,shade whatever can sometimes take control of animals, inanimate objects and even humans.Now whether one does not believe in this can sometimes matter on a large scale but anyways.

There are many other types of study one can look into,especially dealing with perspective,Such as dual realites or multiple realities,beings from another dimension can sometimes try to break through and this can happen in a form of self replacement.

Also one could look at it from a much grander perspective upon a nature aspect.In meaning that especially looking at the point of the fetal position and it happened to both you and your brother.Perhaps it was a moment of instinct or outside control in the sense of all creation.

On that side you could also think upon the fact it may have been a sign from god.I dunno this case is very interesting to say the least.

Upon mentioning the nature aspect of things,aswell as your half brother.Half brother,twin,full brother.Whatever you guys are still connected through blood,and mind dont forget.We work on frequencies,informatiopn and energy.

If you guys spent alot of time together as your post suggests.It would not be uncommon for you to share a special bond.In many studies it says that we can actually connect like this with anyone who we have met,even who we havent met.

It depends on how much you work on your send/intake capabilities.This can be with any kind of perceptual interaction with the world at large. at any rate

I am not saying any of this as a joke nor do i neccessarily believe in some or even all of what ive said.It just happens to be parts of things ive seen heard read and so on.I hope it has been atleast a bit helpful.

If any of these things peak your interest please let me know in this thread and ill try mty best to explain further.

Thanks for your reply. There is a lot to start with. I am especially interested in the connection/nature/instinct idea. Either that or simultaneous abductions maybe.

Sticking with the connection with my brother idea, the weird part is we are not very close. When I was a young child he used to beat me pretty severely. NOt in a brothers fighting sort of way, but in an abusive way. When he got a little older they realized, Oh, maybe he has mental problems. Then he tried to drown me in a swimming pool. He got hospitalized then. And then my parents split and I lived with my Dad while he lived with my Mom, in two different states.

When he came to live with my Dad and I, we got along okay for a few years, mostly becuase he was medicated and I could handle myself a bit better. But he ended up attacking me with a butcher knife and he was hosipitalized again.
It was after he got out that time, this is a few years ago now, and he was living on his own in another state that this incident happened. I love my brother, he has problems and sometimes I got the raw end of the deal, but I love him. However, we really aren't very close as a result.

(I don't want to get too into my brother's mental problems, but he doesn't have a hallucinatory or fantasy type thing. I mean to say he is grounded in reality. He doesn't belive in the paranormal. He is just a bit sociopathic sometimes.)

What do you make of this?

(Also, there is no way he could have engineered the incident in my first post. I am looking into paranormal explanations, please.)

Well id have to say that is a pretty big connection you have there.Remember now you are on this side of things while he is on that side of things,remember that i said we work on frequencies alot. Now as the results of his life being so traumatic and the huge events of the attacks/hospitalizations.

One could percieve that you perhaps experienced an episode on the recieveing end of his trauma,in this i mean perhaps even thopugh you dont feel close in the sense of perhaps brotherly love,you may be conneted through these traumatic experiences.

Some of the most powerful mind weilding individuals cannot or donnot have full control of their minds.And sometimes things can happen that are strange.

Many practitioners of the flow of chi,study the art of using ones bodily energy that we attain from our surroundings thoughts people and so forth,into energy that is usable in many different ways,this can be in a sense of channeling a thought to a person um trying to displace matter and energy such as floating or walking on water.The most common ly seen form of chi transfer through physical means is that of the brick breakers and wood breakers of martial arts.They channel theeir energy within their body through the material instead of at it.

That's really interesting. That makes me think, and this is just coming right off the top of my head from reading your post. Maybe he had some kind of mental episode and blacked out and I experienced it too. Complete conjecture on my part but I could see it as a possibility.

Connected by trauma. Man, that would suck fi it's the case. I haven't had another experience like this. In my memory there doesn't seem to be anyhting significant about that day. I am just trying to play out this train of thought out loud.

You seem to be a knowledgable fellow about some of this stuff. Have you ever had an experience like this or that you think relates.

P.S. It is interesting to me how sometimes the smartest people are the most eccentric. I mean to say, your avatar... it brings a smile to my face, because I can't help but imagining that if I was discussing this with you in person I would be a little wierded out by the no shirt thing. But here I am asking you questions. The internet is a funny place.

theres one of my sites if your interested,i actually also have a paranormal radio podcast show hosted on here (ats)you can find a link to a steram page of all the episodes on that site i linked you.But whats kinda funny,And im saying this cause you made me smile.Right now im wearing the same pants no shirt and a computer power chord around my waist for a belt(for reasons,mostly to self signify that im part of the electronica scene anyways.)

Hmmmmmm me personally.Ill tell you something,Once i had an event that envolved an outside agent comin g into my body which was basically poison.)okay i say this cause i cant say what it really was.And what hp[pened is,i lost about a third of my ability to process information.Now ive always been quite the individual,but it was like being here but not being there.I could do things but it was like i was inside watching the world around me and my body keopt doing the survival stuff like woprking.And slowly over time i have come back into myself.But my friend thats a whole other thread on a forum that is my life.But i will indulge you the best i can with whatever i can.

Sometimes our inner thoughts and feeliongs can take over those that are coming from our perceptions of ou r external devices,such as seeing.When most people look at a stomne wall or lets say brixck.Their minds usually go on auto and say to their core selves its a brick wall its this long its red and so on.

Now what if your mind didnt recieve that information neccessariyl.What if there is something wrong and you start overriding reality with your thoughts.Well what happens sometimes is a whole other reality can happen and take over your pe4rceptions.We can see this in retrospect through sleepwalking and what not. but yeah ive had quite a few well mabey more experiences with numerous paranormal events and things of sorts.

On another hand i have studied alot about energy flow and energy marking .Now in this i say,as we percieve the world around us,we connect with everything we see feel and hear and so forth,but the question is how much do we connect and how long does that connection last?Due to our very dismal understanding of the way we and the universve works we think that our brains store the information that we see,yet recent study shows us now that upon remembering or thinking about an object,will infact produce the exact same activity in the brain as if we were looking at it.

Now where was i.There are ways we can hold onto our memories or rather those who we know and love,many people base their interactions on our basic perceptive devices,while they do focus on their feelings alot many do not look into their connection between themselves their feelings and the person at hand.

Alot of it has to do with a minimal perceptive basis of time space flow.where as a person who is here is here and when they are gone they are gone. yet that person is still emittin g energy,thoughts,and feelings. its mainly our dissconnection with all things in our percieved reality that spearates us form eachothers feelings and thoughts eteernal,meaning feeling them at all times.

I can feel usually at all times in almost a strange way all the people i have met and connected with on a level; deeper then saying hi or hangin g out for a few hours. Basically my friends who are4 close to me.Now recently a guy i grew up with died and i couldnt really feel him anymore.i still get messed up abou t it.

But like my girlfriend and i have a strong connection.And she is quite the individual aswell.She has waking dreams where she will sit up and stgart talking in her sleep screaming sometimes,she can even wake up and start talking tom e about stuff thats happening in her dreams.But shes still dreaming .
