Scanned by an Anomalous Light

Rick in North Carolina talks about a scary experience he had when he was five:

“I can understand why everybody wants to see something, you know. Curiosity and all that. Myself, I don't. I don't want to see anything. This thing happened to me when I was a little kid. I mean I had to live with it my whole life. It has affected my personality. It has affected how I deal with people. I've been alone my whole life. I think it was because of this. I'm 56 now. Still alone. I do have a daughter but, you know, the relationship didn't last long.

Any how, I was five years old living with my mom. No brothers or sisters, living alone in an apartment building in Cleveland, Ohio. Basically on the top floor with a balcony – about 4 stories high. We were right behind Case Western University. You look out the window, there was an alley and there was the frat building from Case University, basically the back of the frat building. Not a whole lot of students in there. It was dark. Around 9 o'clock. 10 o'clock at night. Just me and my mom was in there washing dishes. I think I was in there aggravating her or something. I was about 5 years old. When you walk from the kitchen into the living room there's this big window on your right. I can remember it like it was yesterday. The curtains were open. It was dark out there. And, like I said, there was a frat building there and alley between us.

As I'm walking by, something caught my eye. I turned and looked and I see this big round white light just sitting out there. Between me and the building out there. Basically just a little bit lower than the window which is like I said 3 or 4 stories high. I turned and looked at it. I mean I'm five years old but it was like your guest said when you see something like that you try to go back and compare it, you know. I couldn't figure out what it was. I mean this was happening in a couple of milliseconds right. As I was trying to figure out, what is this thing I'm looking at. All of a sudden, I realize I'm standing in front of this window, the lights are on and I could feel it looking back at me. About the time I got that feeling, I questioned myself, am I really feeling this because... yes, I was really feeling it because bam, here it comes, right directly towards the window. I mean, whoosh, right up, you know. I mean it was probably 60 foot out there and bam blink of an eye it was right there at the window. I'm standing there and I guess it stopped maybe a couple of foot from the window and then it more or less pressed itself up against the window. This big round bright light. I'm thinking, this thing's coming through the window. All of a sudden I felt I was facing the window and all of a sudden I felt this warm feeling in my feet and it started going up. It went up my legs and it was I guess scanning me, I don't know. It went through my groin area, through my chest and all the way up to my head. When it got to my head, bam it was inside my head. I could feel it. It was still in the window but it was inside my head too. It didn't communicate. All it was doing was... I got two feelings like it was looking for a threat and it was like it was... a chance to, how do you say, I don't want to say dissect... like you want to look at something like on a table. Like, wow, I'm gonna check this out. (host Jimmy Church asks if it happened again later.) I was five years old. Yeah. No. No. No. I never wanted it after... I had to go to school. I had to live with this thing.

Any how, when it came out of my head it went all the way back and then it came forward and then bam it was out. It was at the top of the window now. I remember saying, Just leave! You can see I’m not a threat, just leave! It stayed there a minute. It went straight up and left. It went to the side of the building and went straight up. And I... I felt hollow, you know. It was totally negative. I had to live with this thing. I don't want to see anything again. People talk about I saw this, I want to see that. I mean if they had something like that happen to them and they had to live with it for 30 years... for their whole life. I had to go to school and who am I going to tell? I blocked most of it for 40 years. For 40 years I thought it just come up to the window and left and then after 40 years and then somebody said something and then I thought about it for a few weeks and then bam I got the memory. It moved from one side of my head to the other and I remembered the whole thing. (the guest, Steve Murillo asks if he experienced any missing time) I don't know. I don't know. I went in to my mom who was still washing the dishes. I went in there and I screamed and she didn't move. She kept washing dishes. I kept screaming. I was standing there watching her, screaming, and then I realized my vocal chords were paralyzed. They wouldn't even work. I went up there and I reached up and I grabbed her arm and she started panicking because I was pure white, I guess. We called the Air Force. I mean after I was able to talk. They said, how old is he? Well, he probably saw a car headlights. I want to know why it happened to me. Was it accident or on purpose?”

NOTE: I have read similar accounts of the witness being 'scanned' by an anomalous light. For the most part, they seem to believe it's part of an abduction, with lost time. Since this witness was so young, he may not realize anymore than what he detailed. Interesting account. Lon
