I knew my uncle had died.

My mom had called me and told me the news. It was very sad. She told me in the middle of work and I told one of my coworkers. He expressed his condolences on my loss.

A couple weeks later, my sister mentioned my aunt and uncle doing something. I said “but…he’s dead.” And my sister said no, he wasn’t.

I called my mom. No, he wasn’t dead.

To this day I’m still not sure how much of it my brain imagined and how much was real. Did I really talk to my coworker? Was I even on the phone with my mom at all that day?

It still freaks me out knowing that my mind could fabricate so complete and real a memory like that.

Several years ago I woke up in bed next to my (now ex) girlfriend and we had a conversation in fluent French. I got up and got in the shower, and as the water started running I realized, neither of us spoke French. When I got out I asked her about it. She remembered it happening but was as confused as I was. I can’t even remember what we talked about because I don’t fucking speak French. Brains are weird.

My dad has epilepsy and says that he’ll experience this when he doesn’t take his meds. Sort of like a fugue state. He went to Aspen on a business trip to design a ski lodge and he forgot his meds at home. He was supposed to do a big presentation but he never showed up. His coworkers looked for him for hours until they finally found him walking down the highway in the snow, 8 miles from their hotel. Apparently he had completely forgot who he was, where he was, and why he was there. He figured if he just started walking he could piece things together and figure things out. He snapped out of it when he saw the familiar faces of his coworkers.

One day I was walking to work and all of a sudden had an urge to walk a different path than usual. I work downtown in a big city. It was a strange spur of the moment urge to walk a different way that changed my life forever.

I turned into an alley I had never seen before. As I remember it, I made it about fifteen feet or so when an actual “glitch” happened. Everything in my mind scrambled. I felt like I didn’t have a body anymore, just that I was a semi-conscious entity floating through some weird dimension. All of a sudden in the array of different colors and shapes a vision came to me. It was a bunch of strange looking people that in my mind resembled businessmen in suits. They looked startled and panicked that I could see them. One of the “people” made a quick movement and everything turned to black.

When I regained normality, I was on a completely different street. It was the same street that I always use to walk to work. I felt sick, and severely disturbed/depressed.

I’ve never done any hard drugs, never experienced any hallucinations, never have had anything like this happen to me. The weird thing is, when the glitch was correcting itself and I could see those “people” watching me like a caged animal I had the feeling that I knew I was being controlled. It still bothers me very much to this day.

When I was like 10 or 11 I was going to the beach with my aunt and her friends. There were two cars of us. To get there we had to go through a very large industrial area. We didn’t know the direction, so our car was following the other. Suddenly, they did an unexpected turn and so our driver had to take a sharp bend.

In that moment we heard a very clear, loud voice inside the car saying laughing “Sharp bend, hm?!”. The driver immediately hit the brakes. We looked at each other, puzzled: we all recognized it as a voice not belonging to any of us.

In the very same time, we noticed that the other car has stopped as well. The other driver got out of the car with a scared face and shouted to us: “Did… did you hear that as well?”.

They heard the very same thing inside their car. The area around was full deserted.

When I was a teenager I had two really intense dreams one night. The first one was about an online friend of mine calling me to say she’d broken up with her boyfriend, and I sang a few lines of Seal’s “Don’t Cry” to her over the phone. The second dream was finding a (real life) friend dead body floating in her bathtub.

I didn’t think anything of it up until I logged online that evening and the online friend came online to tell me her boyfriend broke up with her. I immediately asked if I could call her, and she said no. I remember thinking that it meant something, like I could change it. Not long after, my phone rang, and it was Real Life friend from the dream calling me. I was completely freaked at this point, but talked to her normally… she was just talking about school and shit… up until I realized I heard a splash in the background. I asked her, “Are you in the tub?” and when she said yes I felt like my heart had stopped. I asked her, “What did you do?”. She didn’t answer me right away, and then after a very long pause she told me she’d taken an entire bottle of pills and chased it with mushrooms and vodka. She’d gotten scared waiting for it to hit her… so she called me so she’d hear someone’s voice. I hung up and called 911. By the time they got there she was unconscious, but alive. Today she’s a mom to a beautiful little girl, and she’s ok.

Was monkeying on the hand rails of a balcony on the 4th floor of my building and fell off, as 2 of my buddies watched in horror.

I remember seeing the concrete floor approaching as I fell head first and thinking “oh fuck – I’m going to break my wrist” (Why my wrist? dunno)

Next recollection is seeing my buddies yelling, from up there, “Are you OK!? ARE YOU OK!?”.

I look up, I say: “What happened?”.

They did not see my actually hit the floor, they just ran outside and saw me already standing looking up.

Not a scratch, not a bruise, nothing hurted. I don’t remember hitting the floor, standing up, nothing. No memories exist for those 1 or 2 seconds.

None of us 3 ever understood what happened. But we all saw it and agree on what happened.

About 15 years ago my friends parents, Steve and Julie, were woken up at 1am to a very loud THUD that rattled the house. Worried that one of the kids had fallen out of the bunk bed Steve went downstairs to check on them but all three kids were sound asleep and safe in their beds. Julie told Steve to check the house in case of intruders so Steve checked the doors and windows before going outside to take a look.

After ten minutes of investigating the noise Steve came across nothing unusual and went back inside to go to bed. He found his wife absolutely worried sick and she demanded to know where the hell he had gone and what happened. Confused and tired Steve told her he found nothing and tried to calm her down before Julie pointed out that it was now 4am and that he had been missing for 3 hours. Julie had even gone outside to check on him and he was nowhere to be found and didn’t respond to her calling his name. Unable to figure out what happened they returned to bed and slept until Steve had to get up for work in a few hours.

Steve owns a painting business and a couple hours after working on a house he noticed his eyes started to feel itchy, then his eyes started to burn, then after a couple hours his eyes burned so badly that he was holding his eyelids open as to not blink because it felt like his lids were sandpaper against his eyes. His employees rushed him to the hospital and Steve was treated for second degree flash burns on his eyes. He was told his burns were equivalent to staring at a welders torch without eye protection for an extended period of time. His eyes were treated and he was lucky to have his vision fully restored.

  1. I actually seen a CLITCH in the fabric of life as if for a split sec. of a sec. ( If possible ) life was off just for that sec. or half of a sec. Strange in deed. As if someone was fixing a malfunction in the fabric of life.

  2. On a tricycle going home with other 5 passengers 2 of them are a 4 year old girl and a 3 year old boy with there mom and the driver, heard of a child voice shouting “Stop, just here!” We all heard that but there its not our co-passengers voice. The driver stop the tricycle, asks everyone if we really heard that, and we all say yes, no children on the road as well. The driver try to start the engine but takes five minutes before it turns on, also the power supply blacks out. The driver says it always happen to him when he passes to that part of road.

  3. I was sunning on the roof of my house, something I do frequently in order to maintain my health (Vitamin B), lying on my back, with my eyes closed. Suddently a shadow, over my closed eyes, jolted me upright. I saw a large black hauk about 4 meters above my head, flying away in a circular motion. I’ve never seen a haux this close. The haux kept rising, flying in circles, and crossed one of several chemtrails which that afternoon crisscrossed at low altitude over the valley. However the haux did not come out the other side, as I expected. I watched the sky for an endless time, looking for the hauk. To no avail.

  4. What about watching a program on TV, then turning that program off to watch something else. Without knowing anything about if that program will ever come on again, you switch through channels another day. And come back to the same program again, without planning it out. Come to the same place, you left off last time.

  5. I was driving home after picking up my daughter from a basketball game a few nights ago. I had an ‘overwhelming urge’ to pull inside a gas station but I fought it with all my might since I didn’t need gas. As I passed the gas station, a buck ran across the road and collided with my car. My daughter and I were fine, I drove home with a smashed fender and headlights and thought nothing of it, until I read these other stories.

    • If we were in a simulation(which i for one am not convinced)I don’t think you could tell very easily and pain would be just as real as pleasure.It would be very persistent,In the same way Einstein described the illusion of time.

  6. okay, so do you ever feel like you’re being followed? I drive at night on dark highways, and I will have a car travelling about four lengths behind with headlights on… then… nothing. No One there, no headlights, no streets to turn on…no reason for the other car to have disappeared. this happens quite a lot especially on one of the roads I go home on.

  7. Had a few.about 15 years ago I put something down on the counter.When I reached for it a bit later it moved before I touched it as if I pushed it.never happened again tho.These days it’s no big deal that I have saw some ufos.twice hovering just over my head.not lights but saw the body of the craft just hovering there.Once it wax like a movie scene with red light coming on and it made the woods beside my house glow.then descended disappearing behind the trees.that was many years ago as well.Saw a black cat once and got a bad feeling that’s unlike me, That very night got a call that my ex(who I was dating then) had an accident paralyzed from the waist down and just lucky to have survived.The cat thing is what made it weird.To many to post them all.

  8. Hearing something said… then 5 seconds later, hearing it all over again, with exact background sounds and all. also, dreaming of an event, then doing it, within the week. Knowing how it will turn out, their names, knowing it all. It freaks the other people out when you know their name!

  9. Wow man, I’ve had several. The creepiest, was one night I was star gazing, And I seen what looked like a star just like the rest of the stars in the sky, make a very significant change in position across the sky. Weirdest thing I’ve ever seen..

    • Yes, It is good to know. I’ve never told anyone. I was actually sitting right next to someone when I seen it. I never bothered to say anything, because I knew it would be too unbelievable. As far as I’m concerned, Stars have the ability to change their position in the sky, Or it’s something else designed to look exactly like a star, Because it looked just like every other star in the sky. It just decided to move itself, what would probably be the equivalent of thousands of miles in an instant. Providing, Stars are as far away as astronomers claim..
