What if what we percieve as being the real world is nothing more than some metaphysical manifestation and what we believe to be the supernatural world i.e ghosts etc is actually the real world transposed onto ours through sone kind of inter dimentional glitch....or maybe not

 

 

I assume that there was a good crop of mushrooms this year? ;)

 

 

Actually this accords with buddhist philosophy and also with certain elements of quantum physics

If you're referring to the grow your own portabello kit I got for me birthday yes the mushies were lovely :D

Im not sure if it can be classed as paranormal but I've had a number of instances of really vivid deja vue and Deja Visite.

some closed minds on this thread methinks. there is actually a difference between explaining something and explaining it away.


Why is not accepting what people say uncritically being close-minded? Surely that is the opposite.



This guy says it better than I ever could. My favourite line being, 'there are others that seem to think being open-minded is accepting the unreliable testimony of anyone with a spooky story.'

My mother used to claim that the house we grew up in was in some way haunted.

 

Anyway, 20 odd years ago after a night out I got into an argument with my Mrs and she got home first and locked me out. After much banging and shouting and bawling I decided to call at my Mums, where at the time only her and my youngest brother lived. I threw a stone at his window to let me in and I crashed out there. I woke up quite early and feeling a bit sheepish and still half p`ssed, I sneaked off out and went home (legging it through the nearby gardens to save time)

 

A few years later, on a car journey, she was telling us tales of why she thought the house was haunted and then came out with the time she heard someone getting up and walking down the stairs and leaving the house but when she looked for someone there was nobody there.....'and to this day I still don't know what it was'. Cue me and my brother with shaking shoulders trying not to pee ourselves laughing.

 

I never owned up. My mother is Mrs Doyle from Father Ted.

Well I'm converted. When I started reading this thread I was a sceptic, now I've had my own experience.........
The night before last me and the missus were sitting in our front room watch in tv.
My wife said " did you hear that?"
"No, what was it?" I replied.
"It sounds like there is someone at the front door, go and check"
So I went. Through the frosted glass I could see there was indeed a shape on the doorstep.
I slowly opened the door to peep out and I couldn't believe my eyes. I swear that on my doorstep there was a zombie clearly dead by the pallor of its skin, there was what looked like a witch with broomstick with the "thing"
I slammed the door and quickly bolted it.
So, I've now seen it with my own eyes and I defy any of the clever dick nay sayers to give me a rational explanation to this frightening thing THAT I SAW.

I've experienced hypnagogia ...in very simple terms it's a cross between being awake and asleep.  In this state I've experienced hallucinations and sleep paralysis.  If you know nothing abut hypnagogia and experience it I wouldn't be surprised if you thought you had a paranormal experience.

I hate that and it's sort of lucid dreaming but then you can take control of your dream a bit but you know soon that you get hit by the paralysis state….but the only thing I find out about them sometimes and many many people have also reported the dark figure in the corner in your room when you have one.

it's the stuff of nightmares.

I've had this for years, it was really scary when I was a teenager and would keep me awake after I'd had it.
