I don’t want to, lol! But I kind of do…not that I’ve had any real, actual experiences, thankfully. My grandmother, my aunt, and my cousin had a few very strange things happen, and I’ve always been nervous that the sensitivity could run in the family. Nope, nope, nope…no thank you!
If this turns into a scary story thread, just know y’all aren’t helping allay my fears.
I have jolted awake and hallucinated some things. Because of “blinking” on back to back shifts/jobs. Sleep deprivation.
I am mostly immunized against noises in the dark. Cause the cats are now always fucking with something. They are an extremely random white noise generator. And I sure they would be able to see ghosts. Cause cats. Of course.
Sleep paralysis is really the worst where something wakes you up, you don’t have the sleep out of your eyes so you can’t really see yet, and your brain hasn’t reconnected your body yet so you can’t move. Just think you might see something. That can be… Slightly terrifying.
I don’t believe ghost exist. The human brain has to translate/interpret “external”(from the brain) sensor inputs and how it does it varies. And so do the sensors. And how it translates them varies based on stress/current situation/subconscious/belief. None of us technically get the exact same input. And even when we think we do the brain is just trying to make sense of the input and fllls in things.
@unksol now, bringing cats into the scenario, yeah that changes things. especially when a cat will fixate on some random point where you can’t figure out what is possibly of interest. pretty sure the cat has detected something paranormal. or else is meditating.
