I had a very disturbing time loss experience back in 79 or 80. I was with four other people in the living room of a house I was renting. It was a sunny afternoon and were were having a few brews and bs-ing. Then it was dark with the street lights shining into the dark room and everyone was like what just happened. I remember being rather stiff and some what cold everyone was stretching as if we just woke up. At the time there was a guy named Tim there and we all knew it was his fault that this had happened. He was very apologetic about it "I'am sorry it just happens sometimes" and then quite suddenly everyone decided to go home. It was only 10:30 at night on a weekend, we usually stayed up much later.

But there is still more weirdness to my story, I had always remembered Tim as one of the gang until a few years ago when I was talking about this with my wife. Upon retelling of the story I realized that I had no other memories of Tim before or after that day!

We lost at least 4 hrs maybe as many as 7 hrs and each of us knew something happened that focused around Tim he also knew it was because of him.

The next morning I talked with my roommate about it, we could not explain what happened nor why we had beers left from the 12 pack.

I have always had this nagging feeling that Tim was abducted that afternoon and the rest of us lost time because of it, though I have no conclusive memories to substantiate this feeling.

Around the time period you are talking about something very strange happened to my English class in high school. I have been tempted many times to recount it here on ATS but it's hard to talk about such an old and strange and traumatic event in an environment that can sometimes quickly turn hostile.

In brief, lightning supposedly struck our school, and most of the class and the teacher afterwards said they experienced it as a momentary flicker of the lights. But about a fifth of us experienced that same "moment" as a long drawn out event of possibly a century in which we all saw and experienced mostly the same sights and experience, with some variation due to persepctive, then went through having the classroom rematerialze around us. The teacher had to hold an emergency discussion about it to calm us down because we were so freaked out. His conclusion was we were suffering from group hysteria and he made us stop further discussion.

The "event" we thought we experienced was a nuclear blast that killed all of us and left the school in ruins. We all told the teacher we experienced the blast, then a void, then "waking up" in the destroyed classroom with the dust of probably a century on everything. We couldn't see each other there. Some of the kids saw and heard things the rest of us didn't. I don't remember what that was, machines of some sort, I think. Our stories were pouring out too fast and I was too rattled to remember them all.

I remember being there in that ruined classroom and gradually realizing I must be dead. I freaked out because I was wondering why wasn't I in heaven or somewhere else and worried I'd be stuck in that rubble for eternity. So even though I can't say I remember having a body I sank down where I was, thinking "I don't want to be here" over and over again. And like Dorothy saying "There's no place like home" I heard a kind of wind sound and the class rematerialzed around me and I had my head down on my desk, my hands clutching my head and my concerned teacher asking if I was okay. Then I blurted out my story and the teacher noticed other shellshocked looking kids and suddenly got their accounts, too.

He told us all that had happened was that lightning had struck the school and the lights flickered for a moment. Most of my friends in that class agreed that was all that had happened. I didn't know the other kids very well who shared my account of it. I really only knew one by name, Andre, and he turned to me as we were leaving the class and said "I believe you. I saw it, too". I said to him, "what was that?" and he shrugged and said he didn't know.

I bumped into him once in college but we didn't mention it. In fact, I never spoke of it myself until a couple of years ago. I finally told my husband and parents. I guess when the lightning hit the school some of us freaked out and hallucinated the same experience somehow. It was the cold war and the movie "The Day After" had already aired by then and made quite an impression on us kids at the time.

Anyway it's weird how people can go through something as a group and still have no clue what happened.

That is really an interesting situation you went through, and I know what you mean about not wanting to talk about it. Years went by before I told others about my loss of time and I told very few until recently, ie the internet. I was glad to see your reply as it shows me there are others that have experienced mysteries that confused their realty.

Lightning is amazing who knows what portals it may open!

My English teacher told us it was group hysteria. He was quite rattled, himself, to have not just one student, but several freak out about what to him was a simple act of nature, and he was very keen on shutting us up and getting order restored and getting us back to the lesson. Amazingly, I found out he still teaches English at the same high school. I wish I could work up the nerve to contact him and ask him what he remembers, but after thirty years and goodness knows how many students, I doubt he would remember even wacked out me and my tale of nuclear devastation. He was in a hurry to put it to rest then and I'm sure he doesn't dwell on it now. Even I usually don't.

I have found one old friend who was with me in the class that day. She is one of the kids who just experienced the flicker of the lights. So, it's hardly worth bothering her about and not something I care to discuss with her after thirty years, either. Andre would be the one to talk to, but I've lost track of him. Maybe if I see him at the next high school reunion, it would make a hell of an ice-breaker!
I never really knew the other kids by name. It was a big impersonal school and a lot of us were bussed in for the special college prep program.

I don't think we were actually physically or temporally anyplace different from the rest of the class. It has to have been some weird sort of shared hallucination triggered by the boom of the lightning strike and brief blackout. But I don't know enough about psychology or neuroscience to even begin to figure out how it happened and seemed so convincing and caused such a shared distorted perception of time.

We remembered and recounted the explosion with its searing whiteness and then a void and then ruin. I guess we all came to our senses roughly the same time. I remember my last thought but it has profanity in it so I can't say what it was, lol. Beyond that, I do have difficulties being certain of the other details.

There is an account here on ATS by another member who had a dream of dying in a nuclear blast. His dream was very much like my waking memory. At any rate, it is all rather strange. Thank you for reading my post and responding with a sympathetic tone. I wonder if we will ever know the truth behind our respective experiences.

I found that thread here It was actually Killuminarti's description of dying that was more like the one I remember giving my teacher and that the other students agreed with. We all remember seeing and feeling us all burn/melt to skeletons as we died. Of course that makes no sense, as our eyeballs would have been vaporized first and we wouldn't be seeing anything, now would we? That is the part that makes me question the whole experience, it is way too much like the scene in the miniseries "The Day After". So I don't think we were really killed in an alternate reality, but that still doesn't solve the shared craziness part.

I was about to start a thread about time slips and time anomalies but I searched first and found this. Great stories here! I am fascinated by things like this! I have had a few time slips myself but to be honest I think they are nothing more than my mind wandering.

Once while driving to pick up my child from the sitter a few years ago I lost a full 20 minutes at least. I was sitting at a red light and then suddenly I was driving down the road at least 15 miles PAST where I needed to go and I have no idea how I got there. I have never told anyone about it cause, well, it is too strange and kinda embarrassing! Was i that zoned out? I wasn't drinking or doing drugs and I hadn't even taking anything as simple as cold medicine, so what happened??? after silently obsessing over it for ever I came to the conclusion that I just simply brain farted and should be happy I didn't kill anyone on the road or hurt myself whilst driving blind so to speak. After reading some of the posts on here, now I'm not so sure...

Another strange thing related to time that happens to me is, I seem to wake up every few days at exactly 3:33 am now, I am a skeptic ok about most things paranormal or conspiracy ect. But this is just too coincidental. I'm talking about 3 times a week this happens to me and its never off by even a minute its always 3:33am

anyway I have no idea what these things are about but I'd love to find out, I'm also glad im not alone is having uber-creepy stuff happen!

I have another theory to present, though I don't like to demonize the government (not out of patriotism, just cause I don't really think they would be "out to get us" like many people attest, as its not in the interests of governments to destroy their people, but maintain hold on them, because if they killed everyone off except for a class of "elites" who would they have to rule? And I know many people say they are trying to get a tighter grip on us through a mass of proposed techniques, but I just find it unlikely, personally, for one, because I don't believe in "chemtrails" because they are a label for contrails, or condensation trails, for people who do not understand things like how the intense heat of a jet might cause such effects as the alleged "chemtrail" in the bitter cold of higher altitudes, and if I have reason to doubt chemtrails, I have reason to doubt a lot more) but anyway, IF the government is actually doing something to "chemically lobotomize" the world, the first thing to go would be our perception of time, in the effect that a traditional lobotomy of the temporal lobe, the perception of time goes bye bye. That is to say, such people are only aware of the here and now, have little idea of how to deal with past memories and the like, and can't envision the future, even when asked about concepts like "what are you going to do tomorrow?" Anyhow, I know it sounds more doomish than the idea of us crossing into a new dimension and all, but I do think it is more realistic, IMO. The idea that we are crossing into another dimension is just a positive spin on the 2012 prophecies, and while there may be some truth to even those, which I do not know, I tend to think that this is just another year to get through and whatever happens, happens. I will deal with it as it comes. Just a thought for those seeking some sort of "evidence" to back up their claims...
