Have you been to a football-field sized enclosed space with no discernable boundaries?... I call it the Grey Room, even though the light was so bright
it wasn't quite white, but almost.... I took a step into grey nothingness with someone who I couldn't see. I took another step and suddenly I was
in the grey room.
How peculiar that you ask this question.
I've been to a chamber
that was uniformly illuminated by no apparent means. When I first arrived therein, I thought the chamber was
; however, as my eyes adjusted, I realized that the floor, ceiling and walls were all composed of a very dull greenish
No doors, no windows, no portals of any kind.
There were no other people nor anything else in the chamber with me, but I felt
a presence nearby, behind me. Every time I tried to turn and
see the presence
, it wasn't there — but it was still
I kept feeling this insistent urge
to approach the wall. I fought the urge, and I remained stationary. Just as the urge
picked me up and hurled me
toward the far end of the chamber.
Instead of impacting
the wall, I passed though it
, like smoke.
On the other side was blackness
, a very disagreeable blackness
. I remained there for I don't know how long
— I had no sense
of the passage of time. I just knew that I wanted to be elsewhere
Whereupon, I was instantly
surrounded by the most incredible, three-dimensional starscape
I've ever even imagined
. I've never
seen anything in any
movie that even came near
this incredible starscape, It surrounded me entirely
What happened thereafter was the most incredible journey
I've ever experienced. In retrospect, I can only say that it was a journey that must
have far, far exceeded the speed of light. You don't see whole starsystems go flashing past without traveling at thousands of times light
I say "in retrospect" because I wasn't asking any questions at the time this was happening. I was totally awestruck and completely dumbfounded.
The only thing I can add to that is that this entire vision
took place as part of a near death experience
. It happened when I was in
intensive care with a broken neck back in 1980.
