Did I Die...and Then Enter Into Another Reality?

“When I was 10 years old I experienced something extremely abnormal, strange, weird, all of those things put together. I don't know if this is a 'Mandela Effect.' I don't know if this is just a time slip, but I'm hoping that by sharing my experience maybe you could shed some light for me because again I'm ignorant to the 'Mandela Effect.' The really good thing is I actually have my best friend who witnessed this as well, so it kind of validates the fact that I'm not crazy. Here we go. Please help me.

I think I died. I don't know exactly what happened. My best friend lived directly behind me. We met when she was playing the recorder and I was playing my record in the backyard and then we kind of like, 'Hey, let's be best friends' because it's really easy to make friends when you're kid; not so much now. So we were jumping on her trampoline and I'd never really jumped on a trampoline before, you know. I was that kid that kind of always got hurt really easily, so I didn't really do a lot of active things. As I was jumping, I went really high, so high in fact, that I could see over her rooftop. It was amazing. And by the second jump where I could see over the roof, I realized I'm really, really up high. So I came back down a bit. I was going with such a force I couldn't quite slow down, you know, it takes a few jumps to kind of slow down. So I went up and somehow I accidentally flipped forward so I'm now hurtling towards the ground. Bum up, feet up in the air, head down and my hands like out in front of me. So during that flip, I had kind of moved to the side so I was falling towards the ground, like I wasn't going to land on the trampoline, I was gonna go to the ground. Literally, my feet were up in the air, my hands were like in front, so I had that moment of absolute horror and I just knew that was it. I thought I was gonna be paralyzed from the neck down or I was gonna die because I would have broken my neck. So I closed my eyes really tight and I screamed and then there was just silence.

I got goosebumps because this is really weird. There was just silence. I felt nothing. Suddenly I was kind of bouncing like really slowly, you know, when, you're just kind of resting on a trampoline and you're bouncing so I open my eyes...and I'm standing upright looking at my best friend and I'm just bouncing. Okay, this is me falling (upside down). This is me, suddenly, boom (standing straight up). I time-traveled. I'm Marty McFly, maybe? Maybe not? There's no logical explanation how I can be this far from the ground (mere inches). I kid you not, my hands with this far from the ground (inches) and then I am suddenly on the trampoline, upright, bouncing, like nothing had happened. And that my friend saw me, just appear and I looked around and I was really confused because I felt like this whole moment in time had just disappeared. And she just stares at me and she says, 'Whoa, you okay? And I said, 'What did you see?' and she said, 'I don't know,' she said, 'You were falling and then,' she said, 'And then within like a split second, I was standing upright.' Now that doesn't make sense to me.

Oh please if you're a skeptic please try and debunk this. Also, if you know a lot about time slips and the Mandela Effect please enlighten me, like, I am happy for an explanation either way. But it doesn't add up. Part of me goes, 'What if I somehow went into a different reality?' 'What if something happened to me that day and I slipped into another reality where I am okay?' 'Is that what death really is?' Holy crap, what if that's what death is? Maybe no one dies. They just slip into a different reality.” - Tyrolin Puxty (from a video titled, 'Was it a time slip or Mandela Effect?' published on 23 Apr 2018)

Daily 2 Cents: Unknown Wales Creature -- FBI Investigating Mysterious 'Booms' in Pennsylvania -- Woman in Black Walking Her Dog

Unknown Wales Creature

“I have heard some rumors of a similar being to mothman appearing near to where I'm from in Wales, UK. My mother have claimed to have seen a similar being while she was in a car with her sister. She claimed to have seen a "shimmering cloaked like creature" when she told me this, it immediately made me think of the grim reaper. She said it came out of the darkness and followed besides the car on the passenger side and then went over to the drivers side, then finally it goes above the car and stopping in its trails. Without knowing about my mother and her sister's sighting, there have been about 4 more people to have seen a similar being at the same area. I thought I saw something similar on the same road but I may have just seen something like a kite or a black bag stuck on wiring...I was on my way to college, on a bus, otherwise I'd have took more notice. I want to believe the supernatural...but reported sightings aren't enough for me. Also, there have been few deaths on these roads, one was a cousin's girlfriend and her friend who drove their way on to scaffolding pipes and was impaled, the driver behind them said they just swerved off the road straight into the pipes, but the car didn't seem to lose control, it was if it was did makes me think if they saw it. I honestly don't know.” - TheRonamon

NOTE: I have received a few reports of winged humanoids from south Wales over the years, including 2 very credible accounts in Drefach & just outside of Carmarthen. Of course, the earlier Owlman of Mawnan reports occurred south of Wales, across the Severn Estuary into Cornwall. Lon

FBI Investigating Mysterious 'Booms' in Pennsylvania

SPRINGFIELD TOWNSHIP, Pa. (CBS) — Federal and local authorities are investigating mysterious booms being reported in Upper Bucks and Lehigh Counties.

Springfield Township police say there have been multiple reports of loud explosions, with the most recent one happening shortly after 4 a.m. on Tuesday.

Humans Have Wiped Out 85 Percent Of Mammals On Earth, Study Says

No one seems to know the source of the mysterious booms.

“I thought that somebody was making a tunnel or space junk fell out of the sky,” said Susan Crompton, who lives in Haycock Township.

“From poachers, gunfire, to explosions to a sonic boom,” said Jerry Hertz of the mysterious sound.

There have been no shortages of theories, but still no answer as to why so many residents have been jolted by mysterious and near-deafening sounds. Read more at Mysterious Booms, House-Rattling Sounds In Pennsylvania Under Investigation By FBI


Woman in Black Walking Her Dog

“In the late 1990's I had a paper route in a small town I Oregon. For one delivery I had to deliver to a set of mail boxes. I pulled left, started to put papers in. I was paranoid about traffic, so I constantly checked my rear-view mirror. It was a rainy day. I saw a woman in a long black coat with a hood walking a small black dog. I physically turned in my seat to see the woman. No one there. I checked the mirrors, there she was!!! I turned again. Still no one there. I drove off like a bat out of Hell. I delivered the rest of the papers there when it was brighter! Creepy.” - Therese Van Vleet

'They' Changed Me

“I will share my story for the first and now. When I was 10, I had the most traumatic experience of my life. I will never forget it. I was living in a suburb of Minneapolis at the time. It was an extremely hot summer day in August. I was running around with friends in the neighborhood playing tag when I noticed a HUGE grasshopper or locust clinging to the side of my house. I was an odd child. I used to capture insects and do experiments on them so you can understand how excited I was to see such a big insect within my grasp. I captured the thing and remember thinking it strange how it didn't struggle in my hands. It was super chill even when I threw it in the bathroom sink I had filled with water. I grabbed my notepad to take notes and a bunch of household cleaners we had stored in the cupboard below the kitchen sink. I added a bit of bleach or something and thing started going crazy. (Noted. I added several more chemicals over the next 10 minutes or so until the creature was dead, at which point I threw it in the toilet, flushed, and watched it swirl down the drain until it disappeared.)

After I had put the chemicals back in their place, I went into my bedroom to place the notepad back in the drawer of my night stand. The second I entered the room I saw that damn thing I had just tortured and flushed down the toilet chilling on my little nightstand! I did a double take and sure enough it was there. I approached slowly to examine the insect. When I grabbed the thing between my index finger and thumb the weirdest thing happened. Imagine there is a piece of fabric on the palm of your left hand. It represents the fabric of space and time. Now take your right hand and pinch of piece of that fabric between said fingers and then invert it or pull it inside out so that the bottom of the fabric is now on top. When I grabbed that thing it was as if all of reality had flipped inside out, though. I was a part of that fabric. The fact that I was an observer only created the illusion that I was separate or outside of what I was perceiving around me.

Instantly, I was on my back and paralyzed. Standing over me, one to my left and one to my right, were two very white and tall(er) aliens. Keep in mind, at that point in my life I had never seen the classic, stereotypical image of an alien. It wasn't until I was 13 when I saw the cover of a book titled 'Communion' that I realized that what had tormented me that day were aliens. They had the same big head and huge black eyes as the creature on the cover of that book, except that they were tall and very white, and not the little grey aliens most people describe under hypnosis.

Anyway, the two ETs or demons or whatever they were placed the palm of their hands over my rib cage and what I experienced at that moment I can only describe as raw terror. It was absolute terror. Electric terror. I couldn't breathe or move or even blink. I couldn't tell you how long it lasted or what happened after. I have no recollection of it ending. I didn't come to in my bedroom or anywhere for that matter. That was it. What I did later that day or who I talked with about the experience is unknown to me. All I know is that from that moment on I have been a different person. It was the defining moment of my life.

A year or so ago, I got a little buzzed and called my dad to talk. I asked him something I had wanted to ask him for years but never had the courage to do so because I didn't really want to know. I asked him if he or mom ever noticed anything strange about me when I was a child, if I had said anything about what I was going through, as I had always suffered from what I can only describe as being severe night terrors. I was afraid to go to bed. In fact, it had a severe impact on my youth. What my dad said actually caused me to start hyperventilating and I had to end the phone call. He reluctantly said that, yes, they had noticed something very strange and had even had me exorcised, even though neither my mom or dad are religious....AT ALL. I was also the subject of extensive neuro-psyche testing at the University of Minnesota. In hindsight, it all made sense. I remember the doctors and scientists. They even came to visit me at my elementary school on a daily and then weekly basis. My dad simply said that he would describe what he was witnessing as being almost.....alien. That was the word that brought on my panic during that phone call. I had to hang up.

What makes this so compelling to me is that fact that I had never been into science fiction or aliens or mythology. In fact, I thought it was downright stupid. I became a hardcore materialist reductionist scientist later in life. I rejected everything I had had personal experience with for many years. It was as if I was in denial? I was in denial. I am just now trying to reconcile this experience and others of a more supernatural nature. The experience I described here was the first and last experience I had involving ETs (as far as I know).

I am now 38. I have severe PTSD and had undergone multiple series of electro convulsive therapy. I have been hospitalized numerous times over the years for major depression and PTSD. I cannot for the life of me understand why I have PTSD but I am considering the possibility that there is more going on than I am conscious of. There is something anomalous about me, a quality or ability if you will, that I have never shared nor will I ever share. I know better than to share such things with psychiatrists or therapists. The eyes cannot see what the mind does not know.” - WizardofCause Hoc
