I've had a few seemingly bizarre experiences in my life... but, for the sake of time, I'll share one of the most recent.
It happened a couple of months ago... it began with a strange dream, which I should probably describe, as it more than likely ties in with the strange
experience. The dream unfolded as follows:
I was wandering around a mall... nothing out of the ordinary happening there... it was full of people doing what people do in malls. I decided to
leave, so I made my way to the nearest exit. There was a 'lost and found' box right by the doors (not the usual place for it, I know), but I walked
up to it and proceeded to pull out my winter coat and purse (both of which were the same ones I wear in real life). I put my coat on and walked out
the doors. As I exited the mall, I noticed it was night time... it wasn't a typical exit (probably a side exit, as opposed to a main exit/entrance),
as I didn't walk out into a parking lot... it was a grassy area with a couple of sidewalks... there was a big tree obscruing the view (it was about
10 feet away from the doors), and, as I could see, I was the only person there. It was very quiet.
I started to walk away from the doors, a couple of steps, maybe, when I glanced up at the night sky. As I looked up I saw a bunch of red lights
shooting across the sky. In the dream, I remember thinking 'fireflies' (I know they weren't, but that's what my dream thought)... they looked
about the size of tracer rounds, and they were bright red. There were hundreds of them flying in a line, but it wasn't a uniformly-straight line
(i.e. one after the other... they were jumbled... sorry, best I can describe it)... but they were all coming from the same spot, although I couldn't
see their point of origin, as the big tree was blocking my view. I couldn't see where they were going either, as the line headed behing me, above the
mall. I don't know how high up these lights actually were.
For whatever reason, my dream self wasn't phased in the slightest by this sight, so I proceeded to take a few more steps... as I did, the red
'dots' veered off their course and the line of them dipped down and started coming right towards me. As they came closer to me (a few feet in front
of me), the began to open up into giant red circles (actually, more like zeroes) and passed through my body. It was then I started panicking and
suddenly I was being 'pulled up' into the sky. There was a giant roaring sound as I was being pulled up. I began to scream "No, no, I don't want
to" and looked back at the ground. Now there were tonnes of people walking around, but none of them noticed me, or even heard me... they went about
their business even though I must have only been about 10 feet above their heads at that time. The roaring sound seemed to drown out my screams as it
pulled me up higher and higher. As I cleared the top of the big tree, I could see much better, but I still couldn't see the origin of the red dots
(now zeroes).... they seemed to go on forever. I remember thinking to myself that I didn't want to see where these red zeroes were taking me... then
the dream stopped.
I woke up in my bed, and it was a real awakening, not a 'false awakening...' I was 100% awake from my dream. I was lying on my back and my heart was
pounding. I just laid there for a minute, or two, trying to calm myself down. After my heart slowed a bit, I rolled over on to my right side. To my
right is my window. It is fairly big and is covered by white blinds. Anyone who has white blinds will know, they let in a fair bit of light...
especially in the winter when there is a lot of snow. So, I laid there on my right side, just looking at my window.
As I stared at my window, I started to notice what looked like writing on my blinds. I blinked a few times to try to focus my eyes, as the writing was
fairly faint. After a few blinks, the writing got a bit darker (but still faint)... it wasn't any kind of writing I have ever seen... I have searched
and searched and can't find anything that even comes close to what I saw. But, nonetheless, there it was... it was three, maybe four lines in length,
as I could see. But, here's the weirdest part... after a few seconds of looking at this strange writing, the writing began to change. As I blinked my
eyes a few more times, the strange writing turned into calculus. Yes, calculus. It was a formula/equation three lines in length. It wasn't anything I
recognized and all of my searches to try to find the equation have turned up nothing. The strange writing that turned into calculus stayed in my view
for about 15 seconds before it faded and disappeared. And that was that.
And no, I didn't write it down... I know, I am a HUGE idiot for not, but, honestly, it all happened so fast and I was so confused by it all that
grabbing a piece of paper and a pen to write it down was the furthest thing from my mind. I was also afraid that if I looked away for too long, it
would disappear. I just laid there, trying to take as much of it in as I could. I feel like I would recognize the equation if I were to see it again,
but I can't write it down from memory. Strange, I know.
I still don't know what to make of this experience... I know our brains are incredibly powerful... fully capable of creating a scene like this, but I
don't know... I still file it under my bizarre experiences
