Roadside Figure



Two people were driving on a country road in rural Indiana...it was a gray day with a light rain falling as they drove through the countryside…one woman was just gazing out the passenger window…really not thinking about anything at all…then something caught their attention on the right side of the road, maybe ten or fifteen feet off the old road in a field…it seemed to be some indistinct dark form that looked like it could have been an old scarecrow…the driver stopped the car on the side of the road and they stared at this ‘thing’...they slowly got out of the car and as they approached it, …it was wearing a hooded black robe that hung lazily to the ground...the face wasn’t visible...the arms were down at its sides and the hands were not visible either…the rain began to intensify and they heard lightning and thunder in the distance…the figure gave them a feeling that filled them with terror…they weren’t scared that it would do something to them, it was just appeared to give off a feeling of impending doom...after looking at it for a few minutes, they got back in the car and began driving again…not more than a few minutes passed when they came upon a gruesome head on collision in which both cars involved were engulfed in flames and a few people had stopped to help, but there was nothing they could do…she wondered if this ‘figure’ had somehow manifested itself to delay them briefly…if it hadn’t, could they have been involved in the accident?...could they have been killed?...one wonders...oh by the way, the police had them turn around because the road was blocked…when they passed by the spot where the mysterious figure had been…it was no longer there.

False Awakening


'False Awakening'

False awakening is when a person has a very convincing dream about awakening from their sleep while in reality, the dreamer continues to sleep…after experiencing a false awakening, people dream a variety of things…they may dream they are going about their daily routines such as having breakfast, eating and getting ready to go to work…these false awakenings, namely those in which one dreams that one has awoken from sleep that featured dreams, take on the aspects of a double dream or a dream within a dream…perhaps you’ve heard the story of Chaung-Tzu who though he was dreaming that he was a butterfly…after he woke up, he didn’t know if he was a man dreaming he was a butterfly, or a butterfly now dreaming that he was a man…these powerful dreams have been studied and no one knows why they occur or how, but they do occur…certain aspects of life during these false awakenings may be overdramatic or out of place…things may just seem odd such as a painting on a wall seemingly moving, or not being able to walk or move in certain ways…one’s legs may often seem to be like lead and difficult to move…the experts have said there are two types of false awakenings; type 1 is where the dreamer seems to wake up, but not necessarily in realistic surroundings, type 2 which is less common they say is when the dreamer seems to wake up realistically enough but there is a type of suspense or disquiet…maybe our entire lives are one large dream…or a dream inside of a dream…who can say for sure?

Psychokinesis


'Psychokinesis'

What about those who can perform the moving or bending of objects by mind power, a type of psychokinetic power?... Perhaps it can be used to hide the car keys or to bend a spoon…there have been instances where this has taken place…granted, some have been fraudulent while others seemed pure…whether you believe that or not is up to you…but it is undoubtable that the mind is an extremely powerful thing…so much more than we can comprehend…can it move mountains?...maybe…we never tap into the deepest realms of the mind…who knows what potential there could be if we could?...some have seemed to control others by concentrating their powers to make others think as the sender wants them to think…this can be very dangerous...we think we know ourselves but given certain circumstances, our mind or perhaps psychokinetic powers from others can cause us to do things we wouldn’t ordinarily do…maybe even go beyond legalities…certainly, our own minds can bend the rules to fit around what we what to accomplish…what would our fathers think?
