Thought I would tell you all about something that happened to me while I was driving to see my girlfriend on wednesday evening:
It was a perfectly normal wednesday at around 8 in the evening when I left my house to drive to the next town where my girlfriend lives, about 17
miles away. It was raining quite hard so not the best driving conditions. Just over half way there I suddenly had this feeling that something
wasn't quite right, a bit like has been mentioned in various other threads here recently. I slowed down a bit and had a look round, and thats when I
realised that the surrounding countryside had somehow faded and lost its depth. Its quite hard for me to think of a good way to describe it. I think
the closest comparison would be to image a landscape made completely out of cardboard cutouts, so instead of the scenery blending in, it had distinct
layers, like it had somehow been flattened and lost its depth. Everything seemed to have also lost any vividness it may have had, and as such looked
very dull. I continued on my journey, all be it with probably a quite confused look on my face, until I reached a section of road that required more
concentration. By the time I had a chance to look around again everything seemed to have returned to normal.
I've definately had the same feeling in the past but never has anything actually looked out of the ordinary. Just to get rid of a few of the obvious
responses, I have never done any drugs, had not drunk alcohol since the friday before, and there is nothing wrong with my eye sight.
I've read here in the past that the world looking flat and dull is sometimes reported by people who were experiencing time slips, but I did not see
anything that would have been out of place here, so if that was the case it was a pretty boring one.
Anyone experienced similar?
