    Examples of Multiverse/Parallel Universe Experiences? - Terrified Woman From Another Universe Wakes Up Here

    What do you all think about these?

    Terrified Woman From Another Universe Wakes Up Here

    What would you do if you found yourself in a strange bed, your workplace had changed, and you discovered your lover no longer existed? A woman named Lerina García claims this is exactly what's happened to her. Could you be next…?


    Lerina discovered she was in another universe: ours



    What started as an ordinary daywaking in bed one morningevolved into a series of fearful shocks and haunting horror for a desperate woman lost in an alien world: our world.



    As Lerina García left her bed she noticed the sheets and bedclothes were strange. She didn't recognize them. Still shaking off the last vestiges of sleep, however, she simply shrugged away the eerie discovery and began her morning routine.



    Everything most precious to her was gone

    But García would soon learn that once she'd left that slightly alien bed she entered another reality. Her life, her pasteverything most precious to herwas gone.

    As she went through the routines of her first day in another universe she noticed small incongruities: things out of place, items missing or items she hadn't purchased.

    How many of you are there? Perhaps an infinite number

    As she later wrote on the Internet seeking someone to offer an explanation for her nightmarish dilemma and maybe offering help: "One day I woke up and found that everything was differentnothing spectacular or having to do with time travel and such things. I simply woke up in the same year and day on which I went to bed, but many things were different. They were small things, but sufficiently important to know that there was a point at which everything was different."

    Lerina's writings on the Internet relating her story are recounted in the Spanish language site revistadigitalavalon. The English translation is here.

    Not everything was small. Although her car seemed the same and she still worked at the same company she had for 20 years, in the same building, she was shocked to learn her department no longer listed her. Her office was now in another department in a completely different part of the building.

    There may be inifinite Earths being infinitely created


    As the level of strangeness escalated, she dealt with her hesitancy and surprise by telling co-workers she wasn't feeling well. She shares her first day on an alien Earth:

    Four months ago I awoke on a normal morning. I was in my rented home where I’d been living for seven years. Everything was the same, except that my bed linen was different, and I paid no attention at the time.

    "So I went to work in my car, which was parked where I’d always parked, and it was the same office I’d worked in for the last 20 years. But when I got to my department, it wasn’t my department. It has names on the door and mine wasn’t on it. I thought I was on the wrong floor, but no, it was my own floor. I went over to the office’s wireless section and looked myself up. I still worked there, but in another department, reporting to a superior I didn’t even know.

    "So I went to the department indicated in the directory, said I was feeling ill, and left. All the contents of my handbag were the same: my credit cards, my ID, everything, but I didn’t recall having changed departments at any time.

    Lover disappears, old beau remains

    I’ve been separated from my partner of seven years for some six months. We broke up and I started a relationship with a fellow from my neighborhood. I know him perfectly well, having been with him for four months. I know his name, surname, address, where he works, his son from another relationship, and where he studies.

    "Well, that fellow no longer exists. He appeared to have existed before my 'jump' but there is no trace of him now

    "I’ve hired a detective to find him and he does not exist.

    "I’ve visited a psychiatrist and its all been put down to stress. He thinks they’re hallucinations, but I know this isn’t the case. My former boyfriend is with me as though nothing had happenedapparently we never broke it off [in this world]and Agustín (my current boyfriend) appears to have never existed. He doesn’t live in the apartment he used to live at and I cannot find his son.

    "I swear to you that it's true and that I’m very sane. My own family doesn’t remember things like surgery performed on my sister’s shoulder a few months ago: she says she's never been operated on. Small things to that effect."

    Yes, just small things. Things like a different job, a loved one that's vanished forever, and another life in another universe that can never be returned to again.

    "I went to the doctor and underwent drug and alcohol testingall clean.

    "I returned to work the next day and was able to make my way by asking questions and saying that I wasn’t feeling well."

    A plaintive plea

    As can be imagined, Lerina's traumatic life on this new Earth with a boyfriend she'd broken up with in the other world is causing her bouts of stress and depression. She ends her story with a plea for help:

    "Please, if someone has had a similar experience, please contact me to see what may have happened.

    "I cannot find any pathology that matches my experience. For five months I’ve been reading all of the theories I’ve come across and am convinced that it has been a jump between planes or something, a decision or action taken that has caused things to change.

    "What upsets me is that that I’m in the same year, not in a different time, and I’m exactly the same. Let me explain: it’s as though I had lost my memory five months ago and woke up having dreamed those five months, with the exception that everyone remembers me during that time, and I’ve done things that I’m not aware of having done.

    "Has anyone had a similar experience? Pranksters and people with a grasp on 'the truth' can refrain from commenting. This is very serious to me. Thank you Luz.”

    Could Lerinaa highly educated womanbe simply hallucinating everything? Perhaps she is suffering from a form of rare spatial time-related mental illness?

    Perhaps not, for she's not alone in her experience.

    An impossible visitor arrives in Toyko

    A curious incident took place in Tokyo, Japan during the early 1990s: a man arrived on a flight with a passport from a non-existent country.

    The man expressed anger and shock when Japanese customs officials detained him. Although the officials checked their records carefully, the passport had been issued by a country that did not exist. No record showed the country had ever existed.

    Although passports exist issued by non-existent countries (known as camouflage passports), this passport was real and had custom officials' stamps on various pages including stamps by Japanese customs officials from previous visits.

    The man was well-traveled, caucasian, said the country was in Europe and had existed for almost 1,000 years. He carried legal currency from several European countries, an international drivers license and spoke several languages.

    Finally, indignant, he demanded a meeting with higher government authorities. He was convinced some massive practical joke was being played on him.

    After being detained for almost 14 hours in a small security room at the airport terminal, some government officials took pity on him and transported him to a hotel. They ordered the mystery visitor to wait there until they decided what to do about the matter. From the reports, the Japanese were just as confused and flustered as the mysterious man without a country.

    Although two immigration officials were posted with instructions not to permit the man to leave his room, the next morning the guards discovered he was gone. The only exit was the door they watched and the only window had no outside ledge and was 15 stories above a busy downtown street.
    The authorities launched an intensive manhunt throughout Tokyo for the mysterious traveler, but finally gave up the hunt.

    The man was never seen again.

    The professor's drive into oblivion

    Inexplicata relates a story that is like Lerina's, except from the opposite point of view.

    The original account was written by journalist Segundo Peña and published in one of Venezuela’s biggest newspapers, El Tiempo.

    Peña relates a strange tale that smacks heavily of a multiverse shift. The incident occurred on the campus of ULA (the University of the Andes) and involved a well-known faculty member.

    This is what happened in full daylight, according to dozens of witnesses: the professor left one of the university's buildings, crossed a parking lot to his parked car, and entered it. Many saw him as he walked to his car, some even called out to him and waved.

    The professor opened his car door, climbed in, sat down, and closed the door. The car sat there unmoving. Eventually, a few curious students went to the car and found it empty.

    The professor had vanished, presumably for good, as the incident occurred more than 40 years ago.

    Can such things be explained?

    There is no orthodox scientific explanation for any of the incidents described, unless one looks at the leading edge of scientific speculation.

    Exploring that dimly lit boundary between knowledge and mythbetween the known and the unknownthe answer may be found.

    People who appear and disappear may not be snatched up by rogue ripples of time, but by anomalies in the fabric of the shifting, living multiverse.

    Some quantum physicists theorize that existence is populated by infinite universes infinitely created. Each universe is like an infinite bubble birthing new universesnew limitless bubbles. Time does not exist. Instead everything is an eternity of now.

    In the world of the quantawhich encompases all that isthe multiverses are vibrating at different rates and some parallel worlds literally overlap ours.

    Physicists also have had glimpses into these other realties during experiments where sub-atomic particles have winked out of existence and then reappeared. Whether they're jumping dimensions, or actually traveling between multiverses, no one knows.

    Finally, quantum theory and string theory recognize a symbiotic relationship between cognitive awareness and the universe. In essence, a universe cannot really exist unless a mind perceives it. The mind influences the quanta and the quanta influences (perhaps even programs) the mind. It's a two way street.

    So now what would happen if that quantum link between the quantum universe and the quantum mind were brokeneven briefly?

    Would the person become like a ship that lost its anchor—in this case an anchor to the universe? Could a person slip from this reality into one right "next door" to our universe? If so, would there be an exchange trading one version of a person for another, sort of a universal-multiverse swap? Or, as in the case of the hapless lost professor, would a person simply vanish with no counterweight replacing him or her from an adjoining reality?

    Time would be unaffected, and the two parallel universes would be so symmetrical that only minor things may be different.

    Yes, minor things like a lover that no longer exists or a sister who never had surgery

    These stories are real and perplexing to most of us ... so there has to be a rip in the fabric of time.

    Hmmm....maybe

    Guess it might go back to the question of:

    What is Time? ....among a bunch of other questions, such as what is reality....etc

    I know most of you folks, and of course I don't know nuthing about nuthing. HOWEVER:

    This is a whole pile of fear-mongering deluxe B.S. I know you guys think I am naive (even stupid) to the max, but this a a giant pile of crap! You all have so much intelligence, surely you don't believe this baloney. A woman from some other dimension? That is about as real as that I'm going to win the lotto and take you all with me to our own paradise island in the South Pacific and start our own civilization. Come on, guys, gimme a break. I am surprised to even see this garbage on IW,

    I disagree. This idea is mainstream quantum mechanics, not to mention parascience.

    You can read this http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Many-worlds_interpretation but it is pretty complex. It boils down to this : "In lay terms, there is a very large—perhaps infinite number of universes, and everything that could possibly have happened in our past, but did not, has occurred in the past of some other universe or universes."

    4. to propose, contemplate, or plan.

    Yikes, reading my comment back--I was kinda overboard. Sorry. Guess I am just too old to ever wrap my brain around that stuff. One thing tho', it might explain déjà vu!

    ...and ghosts, and a lot of other "paranormal" activity! That is one reason why it is so interesting to the mystery-seekers.

    I just love these stories....I'm sure there are more of them out there, however few and far between to find.

    Strange Man From Alternate Reality Arrives In Tokyo

    The man who arrived in Japan that day in 1954 was certainly a stranger in a strange land. A Westerner in the land of the East, he towered above most of the Japanese people milling about the Tokyo airport complex. But soon, amazed customs officials found the man was more than just a stranger in their midst. The impossible man was a stranger from a stranger worlda world that existed in another universe entirely!


    An incident smacking of very high strangeness occured almost 60 years ago in Japan. Parts of the story were related in several books about the weird and strange published during the 1950s. A brief reference to the incident appears online at Dark Stories.



    Gathering together as many of the details as possible (some may be forever lost in history), the tale takes on an eerie aspect and certainly qualifies as one more possible glimpse into the infinite worlds of the multiverse.

    Japan Airlines - Haneda (Tokyo International) Airport, 1954



    Flight from nowhere

    The day started like any other for the men and women of the Japanese customs. They bowed to their superiors and took their places behind the counters of the facility located near the staging area of the international arrivals terminal.


    As the airliners from other nations arrived and passengers deplaned, the new arrivals queued as they always didwaiting for the interviews, inspections and the anticipation of having their passports and visas stamped so they could embark on their way towards the hustle and bustle of a Toyko now back to normal nine years after the end of World War Two.



    But what started out normally soon devolved into puzzlement, and then amazement, when one of the arrivals that had flown from Europe presented his passport.


    The travel document claimed he was from a country none had heard of in their careers. Even the most senior customs officials were stymied by the passport that, in every other respect, looked authentic.
    According to the passport, the man was from a country named Taured.

    They pulled the traveler aside and escorted him to an interrogation room for an interview while they conducted a background check.

    The mystery man appeared caucasian, said his country was in Europe and carried legal currency from several European countries in a well-made, oversized billfold.


    Haneda Airport waiting area 1950s

    Confusion and anger

    While the customs officials were confused, the subject of their bewilderment grew increasingly angry. He claimed he was in Japan on business, the third such trip that year. He'd been traveling to Japan for more than five years and his company was a subsidiary of a growing international conglomerate.

    While it was true that the man's passport corroborated his storythe document had many previous custom's and visa stampsno record of his country existed. And when the company he claimed to have pending meetings with was contacted they stated categorically they never heard of him, nor of the company he said he represented.

    Equally puzzling were the man's other documents: he carried a drivers license issued by his countrybut the country didn't exist. He also had an international drivers license, but that too was invalid. A checkbook contained checks for an account with an unknown bank.
    The hotel he insisted he had reservations with had no record whatsoever of him.


    How did the strange visitor appear on the wrong Earth?

    Truly a stranger in a strange world.

    The man spoke several languages including Japanese. He said his native language was French and when shown a map of the world expressed what seemed to be genuine shock that his country wasn't on it.

    He told officials that Taured was located where the Principality of Andorra, part of Spain, and part of France was shown on the map. He was adamant that no such country as Andorra existed and his country had existed for almost 1,000 years.

    Had the entire world gone mad? he must have wondered. The Japanese wondered themselves as they stared back at the impossible man who certainly appeared well-traveled.


    Right airport, wrong world

    Hours passed and instead of gleaning answers, the puzzle only deepened.

    Finally, the man demanded to see higher government authorities. By then he thought a massive and cruel practical joke was being played on him.

    After being detained in the airport's cramped security room for almost eight hours, the customs officials took pity on him. They sent him to a nearby hotel with orders that the mystery visitor wait until a decision was reached on the matter.


    Vanishing act



    At the hotel, two immigration officials were given orders not to permit the man to leave his room. After eating a small supper provided by the hotels' room service, the man without a country retired for the evening.

    The guards maintained their post in the hallway outside the hotel room throughout the wee morning hours. At no time did they hear any sounds coming from within the room.

    The next morning the guards discovered the odd European had vanished. The only exit from the room was the door they watched and the only window had no outside ledge and was located far above a busy street.


    Customs and immigration officials, and the Tokyo police, mounted an intensive search for the incredible traveler, but finally gave it up.



    The man from the country that didn't exist was not seen again.



    Hopefully, he found his way back home.

    I used to wonder why dejavu happens and now I'm beginning to lean toward multiple universe existing in the same plain as ours just under different conditions that allows us to live together and not realize it.
