Road Suddenly Under Construction
Edinburgh, Scotland, UK
I HAD to share this with you, this is unbelievable! It has just literally
happened within the last hour.
I went to pick up a friend to go for a bite to eat. They live just outside
of Edinburgh, so I took one of the main roads to get there. The road was
fairly clear & not too busy. I left the flat around 6.15, it would have
been around 6.30 by the time I drove down this road. I got to my friends
at approximately 6.45.
I picked up my friend and headed back into town, taking the same route. We
left his place just after 7, stopped at a shop to get a couple of things
then headed back into Edinburgh. We hit the same road 20 mins
ago—less than an hour from my journey out—and guess
what? The road had road works & construction workers on it. And the work
that has been done on the road looks like the road works have been there
for weeks! I SWEAR TO GOD!
Part of the road had been closed off & temporary traffic lights have been
put in place, as the traffic has to share part of the same road now. The
whole road was lined with traffic cones and large metal railings lined one
side of the road. The part of the road that is closed off is all dug up.
and there was a worker van, with two or three guys still working on the
It would have been around 7.30 pm by the time we reached this road and
bizarrely, these road works appeared that weren't there at 6.30 when I
first drove down this road—an hour earlier!
I even said to my friend (in a joking way, in case he thought I was nuts)
that I didn't remember these road works on the way out to get him. I
expected him to say, “don't be daft, Allison!” or
something along those lines. But he didn't. He said “Neither
do I.” It turned out he had been down this very same road
We both just looked at each other completely mystified & dumbfounded by
these roadworks that have literally appeared out of nowhere!
I swear Cynthia that they weren't there when I first drove down this road
not even an hour ago. And there's no way that the lights/machinery/dug up
road and the amount of construction work that was done, could possibly have
been done within the space of an hour! No way at all!
I am in total shock, that was almost a reality shift in real time! I still
can't believe it!
I wish you could have experienced it too.... I am now completely, 100%
convinced that reality shifts are REAL! After driving off this particular
road, I got a really strong feeling that some part of reality has shifted
around me. And that the path of my life has just taken a massive change or
maneuver. I don't know where to, but I get the feeling it will reveal
itself in time.
I'm really glad that my friend witnessed this too, it reassured me that I'm
definitely not going nuts! He was really mystified by it as well.
It's just not feasibly possible that all of this could have been done in
the space of an hour. Not only that, rush hour traffic on a Friday starts
around 4pm & starts to tail off at around 6pm so it wouldn't have been set
up during that time either. A set up like that is normally done during the
night when the roads are quiet, especially on a main road. Plus my friend
was on the very same road earlier today and he swore the road works weren't
there at that time either. He was just as mystified as me!
Unfortunately, the voice of 'reasoning' started to take over in his head &
he started saying 'they must have been there, it must have been his
imagination' etc. The same way I used to react to these weird shifts in
reality. Before I came across yourself & started learning about this
Note from Cynthia: Thank you so much for sharing your experience
of seeing construction workers and roadwork on a road in real time! How
marvelous that you and your friend both saw the road without road
construction and with road workers and signs of ongoing roadwork on the
same day, as it's easier to recognize when you've definitely encountered a
reality shift of such magnitude with validation from another trusted
I Saw Darkness Out the Airplane Window Where Frankfurt
Should Have Been
Wellington, New Zealand
I was flying to Frankfurt in 2010 and got a window seat on the right, which
isn't usually what I request, but my new travel agent didn't know my aisle
preference. We were approaching Frankfurt in the late evening by this
stage, judging by the map and the time, and I could see the odd light in
the distance. But it was a pretty dull view, so I glanced back inside the
cabin for no more than a second and a half. I then looked out again and
there were two cities, each with bright, night lights shining, where the
darkness was just before.
Only a second before I had a good look outside and knew there were no
cities coming up. I also looked as far back as I could through the tiny
window, to see if there was darkness there, but there were lights as well,
just not as concentrated.
I've gone through explanations in my head: maybe my eyes hadn't adjusted
to the darkness outside, or maybe the plane changed direction or angle
suddenly to bring the cities into view. The former doesn't sound likely,
otherwise how could I have seen the cities on my second view? As to the
latter, I didn't turn completely away and if the plane had straightened up
(it would need to have been a very sudden manœuvre with the brief
time), I would have seen the cities come into view in my peripheral vision.
(This wouldn't explain the light I saw in the distance on my first view,
and I'm sure I didn't just see part of the plane's wing—this was
definitely something beneath us.) It really seemed like those cities had a
massive blackout one second (including every single vehicle) and the lights
came on the next!
Less conventional explanations might be reality "switched on" because we
were getting near our destination (this is what it felt like at the time),
or this was some sort of time shift. The passengers sitting next to me
didn't speak English, so I wasn't able to ask if they experienced anything
Note from Cynthia: Wow, thank you so very much for providing so
much detail from your experience of looking out the airplane window to
first see darkness, and moments later to see very clear light clusters
around two cities! I was just recently looking out an airplane window last
week while flying from San Francisco to New York, so I know that even when
a plane is flying very fast--such as at around 550 mph while flying over a
city like Detroit (I took a photo of both the city lights and the JetBlue
screen showing our location, altitude and speed), a person has time for
several minutes to see close to the same city lights down below. Your
experience is thus quite remarkable, in that aside from the explanation of
a reality shift--a move from one possible universe to another--there really
aren't many other good contenders.
Roaming Yellow Hawk Soccer Ball
Wellington, New Zealand
I used to live in a house where I always felt there was a presence in the
corridor. My toys would occasionally be found outside but I was very much
an indoors kid, but we never really thought too much about any of it: we
just accepted that things got moved.
There was one particular yellow soccer ball, with the Hawk brand, that I
used to play with. I can't recall how I got it, but I don't believe it was
bought for me. It's likely that it was found on our property and, as there
were no kids in my immediate neighbourhood, we kept it. We weren't a
well-off family at this stage so everything was a bit of a treasure. I even
put my name on it at one point.
For a while, this soccer ball went missing. I was sure it was at a
certain location in the corridor, by a shoe stand, but it was never to be
found. As I mentioned, I was an indoors kid so this ball was usually kicked
around this very long corridor at home.
A while later, my grandmother, on her way to work, said she spotted it
in a window of a neighbouring house. Sure enough, there it was. We had no
idea how it got there, but it didn't seem that important at the time. A few
more years passed and it was found on top of the trash cans at the back of
the house! It was the same ball—my name was still on it! This
would have been around 1982.
In 1983, we moved, and the ball came with us. It was last spotted in our
basement. After that, it wasn't seen again. I'm hoping some child is
enjoying it now and that it travels around to different homes!
Note from Cynthia: Thanks so much for sharing your experiences
with the roaming soccer ball. Wow, how amazing to see what sounds like a
rather distinctive soccer ball missing one day--but visible in a neighbor's
window for a while, and then years later showing up atop the trash cans at
the back of your house! I especially appreciate the detail that your
signature was on this bright yellow soccer ball, making it unmistakably
Sir David Attenborough Alive Again
Brisbane, Queensland, Australia
Listening to the car radio one day about five or six years ago, I heard the
death announcement of David Attenborough. I mentioned it to my colleagues,
and they just looked at me blankly. As far as I am aware, I was the only
one that heard the announcement of his death on the radio, and there were
no other obituaries—this was just before Steve
Note from Cynthia: Thanks so much for sharing your experience
with having heard a radio report of Sir David Attenborough’s
death. Steve Irwin passed away in 2006, according to current versions of
historical reports, so that clears up the possibility you might have heard
the flurry of confused and mistaken reports of Sir David Attenborough
passing away in 2014, when his brother Richard died in August of that year.
I’m curious to find out if anyone else recalls having heard of
Sir David Attenborough having died back around 2006.
