YES, I know this post is embarrassing, but I'm still pretty astounded by what happened last night and need to get some kind of explanation or
A couple of months ago my Brother-in-Law, who loves high-tech gadgets came to visit. That evening he showed us his iphone with a 'Ghost Radar' App he
had purchased. It was kind of a fun 'ice breaker' for the evening...and for the most part really only spelled out a series of random words which
generally had no relevence to our questions. Still, we had fun...knowing full well that it was for entertainment purposes only and that it was NOT
some actual way to communicate with spirits...or so we thought.
I bought a new ipad very recently...and remembering the fun we had with my Brother-in-Law's Ghost Radar App, I also bought one for my new ipad.
Again...mostly irrelevent words continued to come out of it...so I eventually lost interest.
My daughter was over, saw my new ipad and App and began playing with it out on our deck with her cousin...As I opened the door to come out to join
them, my first name "Thomas" immediatly emitted from the machine.
We all had a laugh at this; naturally thinking that the timing alone was a pretty neat coincidence.
It was even a little more eerie, as she said she was trying to talk with my father who had passed away last september. His name was Tom also (I am a
junior)...and Dad was the only one in my family who called me "Thomas".
Still, based on the nature of this machine, I thought the name was a lucky hit...with even luckier timing.
We all came back into the living room still laughing and talking about my Dad...with the App still running...and IMMEDIATELY my LAST NAME came out of
the machine. My last name is relatively unique...and in the time I've had this App...a last name of any kind has NEVER came out of it (usually only
random dictionary words with occaisional first names).
We were all shocked and sat there in silence after hearing this...my hair stood on end and I felt goose bumps...We all did!
THEN, my FIRST NAME came out of the machine right after my last name! We ALL just freaked out...dropped the ipad on the couch and ran out of the
HOW is this possible? The odds of it randomly selecting mine and my Dad's first and last names...while trying to contact him with an App that is
supposed to be just a fun entertainment device...must be a billion to one!
Has anyone else experienced this?
How can this be explained?...It is beyond coincidence.
