hi all! wonder if anybody checks in here anymore. it's been just crickets for a long time. i would love to see if we could reinvigorate this forum some time. i find that the facebook page is good for reach and for sharing ideas, but not so good for deep discussions. or maybe forums are just a thing of the past, like newspapers and shortwave radio.

anyway, i had a curious experience recently - well, several - but this one was particularly odd, and i thought i'd share it here.

it was a lazy sunday morning and Tashi (my gf who lives with me) has just gotten up to make coffee. i was still in bed, snoozing and just waking up. i noticed that at my feet the blanket was pulsating again my toes, rhythmically, like once per second. i know that it wasn't from wind because it was too rhythmic and it would have taken a really strong wind to move the blanket like that in any case. there was no one else in the room. i assumed that she must have left her phone on the bed and that an incoming call and resulting vibration of the phone was causing the disturbance - it was about the right frequency. after a bit, i moved my foot and it stopped. she comes back into the room. Me: "where's your phone?" Her: "in the other room." Me: "Well that's really strange because i was feeling blanket pulsating against my feet and i assumed it was caused by your phone on the bed." Her: "Oh my God, i felt the same thing before i got up to make coffee! it was really weird. at first i thought it was your foot moving, but it wasn't. then i thought one of the cats must have gotten into the bedroom (we never let them in) and was laying at the end of the bed, but the cats were in the living room."

in the end, there was no possible "normal" explanation for this. which only left... a paranormal one.

thoughts?

It wasn't some kind of muscle spasm?
But unlikely because odds of both you and your girlfriend experiencing them at the same time make this unlikely.
I've had things like that happen -- not necessarily a pulse -- but strange, small almost reminders. In my case, there were possible natural explanations, but the possibility of those natural explanations were almost as hard to believe as any paranormal one. For instance, I had every internal door in my apartment shut while I slept. Possibly I was sleep-walking. I never sleepwalked before or since. But it's a natural explanation.

Dunno what to make of this, Jim. Very odd. Let us know if it happens again.

Also, what were your other experiences, Jim?

Ooh, that's a good one! Maybe set up a camera for next time?

I guess we always try to find the "conventional" explanations first, right? But if you consider that "conventional" is just an interpretation of our belief systems, maybe we should be more open to those unconventional explanations.

Does anybody have any theories on what it was? My first thought was a spirit. Remember how Patrick Swayze in "Ghost" learned to manipulate matter in the "real world" despite being a ghost? So many times, art reflects reality. But who, and why? Or, was it just an intelligent component of ATTI messing with me?

Mark, mostly many odd coincidences. Like, one evening while she was preparing dinner, Tashi and I were talking about how some American medical students go to Grenada to get their degrees, and the pros and cons of such a decision. First time we ever explored that topic. Then we sat down to watch the latest episode of X-Files, "The Lost Art of Forehead Sweat" (the one about the Mandela effect - highly recommended if you haven't seen it!) and the main character, Reggie, proceeds to describe how, when he was a medical student in Grenada, a UFO crashed... As you know, I've written a great deal about the Mandela effect, had my own UFO sighting, and then this unlikely coincidence!

YEP! That is the type of profound coincidence I get from time to time too. But with me, I sometimes get to see 111 at the same time. For example, I was telling my brother about a month ago (via FB PMs) that I had emailed my local COUNCILLOR regarding the new crematorium facility that will be built opposite our house. Now, I'd mentioned the word "COUNCILLOR" several times to my brother. A few minutes later I log onto Yahoo to check my emails. However, I notice on the home page it read, "Britain's Youngest COUNCILLOR Dies Aged 21". Wow, what a coincidence, and not a story you see in the news every day! A young lady dying so young, how bizarre, I thought to myself. However, it did not end there...

Underneath the main headline it read, "111 people reacting". Golly, it sent shivers down my spine, that anomalous incident. Of course, I grabbed my digital camera and took several photos, as I always do when something like this happens.
