I am looking for some help or information on peoples experiences in time slips/shifts. I am asking this as i recently experienced "something" i
cannot quite explain.
It was roughly threeish in the afternoon a couple of weeks ago, i was walking down a popular, busy, well known street in Liverpool called Bold
Street en route to meet the missus. I remember looking at some designer shops to my right, a car horn to my left attracts my attention but as i look
over my vision becomes glazed, to put it best. I instinctively rub my eyes and as i open them the light seemed to be much heavier/darker/hazy. I keep
walking straight a few more more steps when the general bustle of people and bags becomes slightly muffled, at this point i think im about to feint
and grab my phone to ring the missus as she was waiting at the bottom of the road. It was as i squinted at my screen and called her the sun seemed to
come out, the street got louder and everyting around me sharpened up. I spoke to her and she came to meet me, proceeded to get food as we believed
that would help. We then started our shopping and everything was forgotten about.
Now i only started looking into this as i remebered a case in one of Tom Slemens books about time slips in Bold Street.
The policeman turned around and saw that the people were wearing clothes that would have been worn in the Forties and Fifties, and this really
unnerved him. He realised that he had somehow walked into the Bold Street of forty-odd years ago
When looking into it there seems to be some common traits that people experience in the lead up to a shift/slip:
1) Surroundings take on an oddly flat, underlit and lifeless appearance.
2) Feelings of depression, unease, uncertainty.
3) Normal sounds become muffled.
As she sat down, she noticed that the sun did not seem as bright as it had been moments before, in fact looking back in later years she described the
light as similar to when the area had a partial solar eclipse.
Now, did i inadvertently prevent myself from "slipping" by interacting in the real world? I didn't see anything out of my time frame nor feel any
diference in time. Or did i simply just have a funny moment and need a good fill up!
Share and discuss any experiences you may have heard, or have first hand account of with reagrds to time slips and shifts, i would like to discuss
similar rich places of interest on this topic and see whether they have any common traits.
