So it was today, i was over at a friend's place, and my phone was switched off. I turned it back on, and kept it in my pocket. After almost half an hour, I left for home. When I reached, I just checked my phone for time, and damn! a 'Terminal emulator' window was minimized, although I hadn't touched my phone all that time since it turned on. I switched to that window, and then I saw this:

what's vexing is that it couldn't have registered a touch without physical contact to the screen, and i don't remember typing anything, for as long as i remember. and what is even more uncanny is that it typed something that makes complete sense...well, at least a part of it does..."he would glad if you left" oh, come on...my thigh can't type that...besides the phone was flipped over. I cannot attribute it to anything that makes sense. It couldn't have been a virus, which I am sure of. Any opinions, anyone??


P.S. I don't do drugs, or drink, or smoke. so I couldn't possibly have drunk-texed that.

Peace.

The only possibly reassuring explanation I could give, and I grant you its not a very good one is that a predictive texting function is to blame.

Auto-correct or predictive text. I have created entire conversations with people as a joke by simply mashing the buttons.

One of my friends and I do it sometimes as a joke to see what it will come up with.

"Dinosaurs in the Andies you found my raven necklace Jones wants to give him crabs in the moonlight."

That kind of thing...

You win. It must be ghost-aliens with an urge to write poetry.

We call it a RAT and the scenario you experienced is what is generally done to just piss you off by the guy who victimized you. That isn't some TPTB but just some nerd in his basement trying to have some fun.

No idea then. Ghost in the machine.

Are you sure this is not a virus or your phone was not hacked?

Just throwing it out there - it seems especially suspicious if it opened up in a terminal window like that

have you contacted your phone carrier? there may be some function in the phone or the system that sends out these messages. perhaps they do it all the time "behind the scenes" in sub-programs. only for some reason this time it popped open for you to see.

it's just a guess, i really don't know much about phone technology.
good luck.

Let get really paranormal hypothetical here. Details, it's in the details.

Where were you exactly, retrace all the places you were that this could have happened at. It kind of seems like ghost speak to me. But, in order to make more sense of it, I would think that every bit of your surroundings during the phone hijack occurrence will matter to the explanation.

It really comes down to your preconceived notions about ghosts and what they have the ability to do. Seems like the message is pretty clear to me, "you've invaded my space, I would like it if you left now" -Mr. Ghost

I see your location says India. By chance were you in India when this happened. If the answer is yes, I'd surmise that it probably was a ghost. There are plenty of souls that get caught in limbo. Being Hindu doesn't excuse you from actually failing and being cut from the cycle of life. I think India with its very large population is actually one of the hotspots on the planet for ghost stories.

Ghosts exist, in my opinion. Fun thread.

You'll never make logical sense of the experience.. just saying!!

Hi sticky,may I ask,what do you mean by "failing and being cut from the cycle of life" please? I don't understand what you're trying to put across with that phrase,and the reference to the Hindu faith.

Chalk it off to phone weirdness .
I get calls from the phone number 200, 1 Texts about my having texted someone I didn't .Sometimes apps do this too btw .
I once installed an alleged security app ,and I'm pretty sure it began sending me weird stuff , so I would upgrade to the paid version .
I removed it,and it all stopped .
App can access everything in your phone usually .

I used to get weirder out by it,and now I just delete it .

I am sure this is a case of predictive text.

What do you use terminal for on your phone?

Is this remote shh to a linux box?

So are you saying that ghosts now have cell phones? Wait until the undead find out that the NSA has been spying on them for years too!

A soul in limbo, is a soul that is tormented by its own state of consciousness. It cannot rest, therefore it gets stuck in between dimensions. I believe this is the definition of a ghost.

Hindu faith believes that your karma factor during this life will define the fate of your next life's dharma (path). I mean that I don't believe that reincarnation is guaranteed.

This is my personal opinions about life and death. I've taken all the spiritual studies I have done, and mashed them together to create my own beliefs about the afterlife.
