I did but its nothing like ghosts or anything like that. It was just a medical thing that no one could explain why it happened. It is sort of what you asked.

Care to elaborate a little? If you'r not sensitive about it of course.


Chondrosarcoma. Unlike most types this has no known cause. Just luck of the draw. About 3 in every million. I should do the lottery.

Oh, that's hardcore. How did everything turn out? I guess they removed it, right?

Yeah left proximal humerus is now titanium :)

I have woke up from a dream that made me cry... even though I know it was a dream....

that experience was so surreal for me....

I didn't even know why I was so emotional about the dream....

Yup.

Out of body experiences/Astral travelling: About 25 times over a span of 4 years. Whilst practicing celibacy. Always during the early morning hours - before the sun rises.

Saw strange beings 3 times during these adventures.

Went outside the earth globe and space looked way different to what science explained.

This is what I experienced. I'm a science man and I usually call BS most of the time when people start talking about things like this, but I was sober as sober can be, celibate and very clear headed when all this happened.

So let me get this straight.

1) Nothing you saw had any basis in reality (space looked different, saw strange beings, etc)

2) Why is celibacy relevant?

3) Man of science, yet takes personal experience as evidence despite having no verification outside of self.

Yep, it's clear you'll never be a scientist in any sense of the word.

Astral Projection is hilariously conceptualized. If these out of body experiences were real, then the countless experiments (ONGOING ad infinitum) would turn up ONE single example of verification.

I'll cite just one example.

"...they will also be testing the validity of out of body experiences and claims of being able to see and hear during cardiac arrest through the use of randomly generated hidden images that are not visible unless viewed from specific vantage points above."

So far, exactly as one might expect - jack shit. 

Time to begin skepticism with self...

I have two degrees in physics and lived in a monastary where I studied eastern mysticism for almost 3 years.

Take you first post ever and shove it up your ass.

The problem is when people circumvent their mental faculties in order to justify their insane belief systems. Most of these experiences happen when you're tired, so you're already in a compromised state - couple that with darkness, drugs, booze, etc and it's almost trivial to infer why they happen.

They are fun hallucinations and nothing more. Anyone arguing to the contrary has a long road of establishing it.


Some people caught paranormal activities in cameras so is the cameras have hallucinations too ?! 



Oh my god there is a spec of dust on the lens of the camera, it's an orb a ghost! You are either joking or extremely gullible.

Why would he be joking or extremely gullible?

Really? That's a serious question?

Do some skeptical analysis, instead of simply gathering any fragment of hope you can possibly muster. Lol

I find it interesting that you are avoiding the question.

is the poltergeist activity is a dust in the camera too ? i know now you will tell me they move the objects with wires like all the skeptical analysis in the internet claim when they dont understat something they pull some facts from their .... , i told you come and see yourself its happen always inside the cemetery am not the only one who witness this strange activities in some cemeteries its all over the world or is the cemeteries is a place to get hallucinations from a skeptical view ?!

And still as dimwitted as ever at basic reasoning. I'd demand a refund for your degrees if this is how you were taught to think scientifically. LOL

Unfortunately it's not his first (nor will it be his last I'm afraid) post. Just an Alt ID of an Alt ID (The user YouKnow) of DSGrue3, a user who can't take a hint that he's not wanted on this site anymore (but hey, bonus points for persistence? ).

While I'm here I might as well contribute. ^_^

So we all know about the game "Bloody Mary" correct? Where you (whether alone or with friends) go into a room with a large mirror (usually a bathroom), turn off all the lights, spin around 3 times while chanting "Bloody Marry" and then see what happens. Well my friend, my sister, and myself did this when I was around 11/12 years old. We all went into the bathroom, turned off the lights, spun around 3 times while chanting "Bloody Mary" and then peered into the mirror. What I saw I'll never forget: my sister's face (who was 12/13 at that time) was old and wrinkled, with grey spindly hair. I screamed and ran out of the bathroom.

I really can't explain what I saw, but I'll never forget. @_@

You can't explain it because of one of two reasons.

1) You haven't even bothered to look.

2) You're too stupid to understand the science

Poltergeist fables are exactly that - anecdotal.

There is no objective evidence for them.
