This forum is so dead so I thought I'd better start an interesting thread so as to hopefully get a bit more activity here... so this forum doesn't just start dying like so many before it. What events have you encountered that, with today's science, would be considered paranormal? Or, for that matter, if you have great faith in someone else's or some other people's story or stories - preferredly that of people you know - then tell that, as well. I have encountered what might have been ghosts, as well as prophetic dreams. In regards to ghosts, I have experienced quite a few events, but the most convincing was when, in my parents' house, I heard a loud sound in a hall, that sounded exactly like "haoia-sh-sh-sh"... it was like the sound was in the whole hall and there was no logical source to the sound. In the same house, my analogue wristwatch once had gotten its date moved by a lot. It's of high quality and isn't broken, so that isn't it. The watch had been just a few meters from where I heard that sound at another time. And in the same room where that happened to the watch, I once was trying to sleep when I suddenly felt like someone pushed me with decent force in my back. Suddenly I heard ticking behind me and it proved to be an analogue clock whose battery had run out years ago, but now had power, again. No one had changed its battery and it went out soon. During this same time, there were a lot of very heavy knocks in the walls of that room. I kept thinking if it might be birds but I never saw them leaving their "nests", and the knocks were just too heavy for birds, anyway, and there isn't room for birds to nest there, either. And in regards to room, rats are even more ruled out, and why would they live in the roof area, in that case? Also, it just stopped after a couple days when I hit back in the wall as hard as I could and shouted to whatever it was to be silent. At another time in the house, I was in the kitchen in the night and suddenly heard a loud "clonging" sound in a fruit bowl. I examined what might have caused the sound but found no reasonable source. A badly placed fruit that ends up moving would not make such a hard sound; it sounded like a hard object hitting the bowl. As I by this time was convinced of the presence of ghosts (or at least "a" ghost) in the house, I asked if it wanted me to help it, somehow... I'd help it as long as it wouldn't start touching my stuff, as I told it. I went to bed and was woken up by something falling to the floor. I kept sleeping but when I got up, I noticed that a game disc had been pushed down from a location that held it firmly in place. The friction under it was too great for mere vibrations to have caused it, and I definitely didn't hear any vibrations when I was woken up by it, anyway. Also, at a later time, when there was roadwork just outside the house, I had game discs placed on each other at that very same place. As they were placed on top of each other, their blank surfaces meant the friction was much lesser than the time when there was only that single disc that fell down. Yet, despite that the roadwork made such heavy vibrations that I wondered if the windows might crack - and that for several days - the discs hadn't moved AT ALL. As such, this definitely rules out vibrations as the cause of the disc falling down. And electromagnetism cannot have caused it either as data discs mainly consist of just plastic and aluminium, and never iron. I can only assume that when I told "it" not to touch my stuff, it didn't like me telling what it can and cannot do. I could tell even more stories but these are some of the more interesting and convincing ones. I have another very interesting ghost story that I haven't experienced myself, but that many others from the staff have at a company in the town where I live, and this for many, many years... although actually me too, to a degree, when I was there, once. I'll post it later... I'm getting tired of writing, now. I'll post about my predictive dreams, later, as well.... my predictive dreams basically have been like in that series "Flashforward"... except I unfortunately only remember having had the dreams when the events actually happen. Extremely creepy, anyway, though, and I only started remembering dreams I've had in November last year, and I've kept remembering new dreams until this date. I've never remembered having had such dreams before November last year.... maybe this time in my life is important to me, somehow. I keep thinking that maybe I will finally find my true love during this time of my life.... there must be a reason why I've had dreams of the future for this particular time of my life. Also, for those that are sceptical and are wondering, I hadn't watched that series when I started remembering those dreams. Only even heard of the series when a channel started showing it about two weeks back. For that matter... if I'm not mistaken, that series is newer than when I started remembering the dreams in November last year. Then again, those who just want to view this sceptically could just point to any other, similar stories, anyway, and argue that I've created false memories... but this is wrong and I just know I've really had those dreams at a time before.... anyway.... I might tell about some of my rememberings of my dreams in a later post. Not as interesting as the ghost stories, though, maybe... but for myself... for myself, the remembering of these dreams are beyond intriguing and I kind of have to assume there is a meaning behind me having them... it's just too odd to mean nothing. :l So, anyone else with some good paranormal stories, then? Hopefully there are many others with interests in this stuff, here... this forum is so dead... hopefully this thread will make a bit of a difference. EDIT: Hmm... I forgot telling about one of the even more interesting ghost stories... not an event I've experienced myself but I know it's happened... I'll take it up later.
