    Recently I had this awkward thing happen to me. I had a weird dream from which I woke up rapidly. I seemed to be aware and conscious but my body wasn't. I am pretty sure I wasn't dreaming at that time but my body was completely irresponsive. I tried to turn myself around to see if something is behind me but I could only move my eyes, I was conscious but paralyzed for a brief moment. I could move after about 40 seconds. Pretty strange isn't it?

    I thought the stars were grouping together and coming towards Earth to kill us all the night of the Millennium. It may or may not have had something to do with the amount of substances in my body at the time, perhaps we'll never know.

    Actually the body paralyzes you essentially during sleep, it's really common to wake up and still be paralyzed for a short amount of time.

    Years ago around the time that my mother and I left my father we moved into a homeless shelter and were there for approximately a month. I don't know so much if it is an important detail, but I've always felt it to be.

    This shelter was part of a former mental asylum (Eloise) where experiments were performed on the patients, etc. and after they died they were buried in unnamed graves marked only with a number.

    But anyways, I understand that being as young as I was seeing things after moving out of the home I lived in for 3 months and into a completely unfamiliar place would seem normal, but to me what I will be describing seemed so real (and I was NOT the only one who saw it.)

    I remember quite vividly lying in bed - cuddling in my blanket - staring up at the ceiling and then feeling very cold, not so much externally but it felt as if my insides were being frozen and then my spine got a major chill through it and this gaseous, black mist seemed to form above me at the very height of the room. I naturally became very scared and hid under my blanket until I fell asleep.

    I didn't want to say anything to my mother so I let it be, but it continued for the entire length of time I spent there. Every night the black mist would appear.

    Years later I finally discussed it with my mother and she told me she had seen the same thing, and said that after we got our own apartment that it had followed us and would do the same thing in her room.

    After she met my stepfather she mentioned it never came around, and it didn't follow us to our new home.

    Weeird.

    It's a fairly common phenomenon, Mort. I think it's called sleep paralysis: when you can't move a muscle, and there's this feeling of impending doom or some sort of danger pressuring you.
    I've had this happen numerous times to me as a kid when I went to bed feeling distraught/nervous about something, or being ill.
    Several times I experienced it as an adult as well: a few years ago, for instance. It's just a sign of prolonged anxiety.

    That mist was probably just your imagination making up phantom shapes in the dark.
    Besides, the mental asylum setting is creepy as it is already.


    I've had the strangest nightmares as a kid. Like, for example I dreamt that a runaway locomotive with eyes is gonna devour me. Or I had these strange dreams within dreams. I would often awaken in cold sweat only to realize that I'm still dreaming because as a kid I always retreated to the safety of my parents' bedroom when something spooked me at night, but sometimes the path was blocked with strange obstacles. Like, in one such layered dream I tripped on a huge carrot while running for the bedroom, and fell through the floor into darkness.

    I get sleep paralysis often. Well, if I sleep on my back then I'm basically guaranteed to get it.

    :erk: It really makes me sick. The paralysis is bad enough, but I'll get all those twisted hallucinations and experiences with it. I only get extreme nightmares with sleep paralysis, and dreams and reality will progressively start blending in together. Dreams will then feel more like reality, and reality will become more like a dream...if that makes sense. I've had dreams where I was convinced it was reality, in real time.

    It's all very hard to explain but my dreams will start off normally but over time I'll notice little insignificant things that will stand out to me, but in an very ominous way. They'll progressively get darker and stranger until my mind will clue in that it's one of those dreams. At which point it becomes unbearable. Sometimes I think my own mind is trying to harm myself and often things brought up are very personal.

    Eventually I'll open my eyes, lying there paralyzed while my mind is still dreaming. There's only the ability to move eyes/eyelids. Not being able to move my neck is just a sick feeling. Then I'll get this affect similar to going on a rollercoaster except instead of me feeling like I'm moving forward at high speeds, I'm stationary and everything around me is moving towards me incredibly fast. Sometimes I'll feel a chill sweep over me also, and sometimes headrushes follow...really not cool and that's not the worst part. Really awful things can occur here because even though I'm now partially conscious, my mind/body still reacts as if everything that's happening is real! So you can actually see and hear things that aren't really there but are being created by your mind, but it's nearly impossible to tell because we as people rely on vision/hearing so much. My level of fear then (involuntarily) skyrockets and it's best not to think about breathing because it will only become more difficult if with a sense of panic.

    At this point you can only hope that you wake up completely asap. The worst case scenario is when you're very tired and your eyelids are heavy, tempting you to fall back asleep again...and eventually repeat everything all over again.

    One time I was having a dream just talking to a friend and I was halfway through saying the words "sleep paralysis" before realizing the mistake I was about to make by mentioning it as would soon trigger sleep paralysis. Very strange how this sort of stuff works. :lol:

    I'm actually quite fascinated with this phenomenon and dreams, in general.

    All sorts of distortions of reality, deja vu-s, etc.

    I recall vividly one Saturday morning when I woke up and had this strange feeling of warped reality for several hours. I could feel like someone is watching me, had this strange gut sensation, and my perception of dimensions and sounds was distorted.For instance, when my father talked ro me on that day, he appeared to be standing farther than he was,as if his figure was awkwardly positioned in space(kinda hard to explain), and his voice came off echoing as if it was coming from the other end of some long hallway.
    I was terrified as fuck, needless to say.

    I know for sure it wasn't a dream because a few hours later the feeling passed.

    I am also certain I wasn't drinking the night before.

    I find this sort of stuff fascinating also.

    Recently had this dream where all I remember are these two heads, one was inside the other and it kept pushing through it's throat and eating the other head. It was like a cycle. It almost reminded me of the ending to terminator 2 where the one terminator falls into the fire. It was sort of like that only instead of metal and fire it was just gore. There was not much blood though, like two tissue-y manikin heads. The rest of the "body" as well as the surroundings is a blur to me. The thing that was strange is how it felt. It was like looking through a scope from my dream into what felt like reality. It was like my immediate surroundings felt hazy and prosthetic, while the main image was clear and felt like cold air coming through an open window.
    This is the third time I can remember actually feeling things in a dream.

    I lol'd at Perelman's statement about his peers. Partially because I agree with him, partially because he that rare combo of insanely good + just insane. I like him from the sound of that article though (I just wish he'd get a better bed and get rid of the roaches.

    @Darkbliss: That sounds awesome. I would love to have an experience like that.

    Anyone familiar with the Dyatlov Pass incident?

    This may not be the best or most accurate article, I don't know where I first read this so this was just the first article I found on google, and it seemed alright.

    I didn't see this earlier! That is weird.

    It reminded me of another mystery I'm fasincated by: Franklin's Lost Expedition.
