Hey back again...
First of all, i had a hassle persuading my girlfriend to even let me do any sort of recording :S She was all "don't play with this sort of thing"
and so on. Anyways, I tried two nights to see if anything could be caught.
I set my canon on the tripod in the living room filming out in wide angle.The as I woke during the nigth I went into the living room and turned it on.
All I got was 12 min of... well, room
(the 5d can't record continiously for more than 12 min....)
I also set my dictaphone to record from the time I went to sleep till I woke up. I listened roughly through a couple of hours, but I couldn't detect
anything that would justify calling it speech or something similar.
But... here's where the "fun" begins again.
Two nights ago, our daughter had am experience. Now we've been careful not to talk about my girlfriends "sightings" around her as to not scare her
The other morning she comes in (5 years old by the way) my room and says good morning. After a few brief sentences between us she just started...
(recreated from memory... not accurate)
"I thought I heard you and mom last night, but it wasn't you at all. I heard someone saying uuuhuh. So I went to the window and looked out behind
the curtain and outside there was something white ( she actually called it that.. something white... not a ghost, not a blob or a vampire or anything
like that... "somthing white"). The white thing came towards the window and then through it and as I walked back to my bed it pulled me on the
shoulder and I grabbed a teddy bear and started swinging it around till the white thing went away. It said it wanted me to go home with it..."
I guess I dont have to tell you how I looked in the face while she was telling me this.
The first thing that popped into my mind was to ask her if it wasnt just a bad dream she had had, that sometimes dreams can feel very real. She said
that she was sure it wasnt... that she had been up and out.
Another way we can usually catch her in a lie, is asking her to show us what she had been explaining. During a lie, she would spend a lot of time
creating as she goes along, but this time, she acknowledged straight away, headed for her room, and showed me exactly would she had just told me with
words. I didnt ask into it a single time.
Now, I know our kid well enough to judge when she's recalling something rather than creating something. She's a cute kid, not the brightest star in
the sky and this was clearly not made up in her mind. So either she had an extremely vivid dream, which is possible since I have some occasionally
myself, or she actually had an experience.
I'd like to clearly state that we dont allow her to watch scary movies or "grown-up" tv in general for that matter. She does watch a lot of
cartoons, but the way she described this certainly doesn't remind me of any cartoon I ever saw hehe.
If this was a true experience it would give merit to another experience she had a year ago, but that's besides the point at the moment.
Just thought it was interesting to note.
Im contemplating putting the dictaphone in her room for a night just for the fun of it. But then again, it doesnt seem like what ever that could be
here is connected to any specific room.
