Yeah, due to sleep paralysis.

:rofl: :rofl: You mean you think God is like that or you mean if you see a ghost, you can prove God?







What if it would happen to an atheist? :uhh:

I think you actually meant: What would you think if you woke up in the middle of night and saw someone who would be nude and approaching to you?

But after a while and after sleeping these two hours you have decided to rearrange your question. :biggrin:

I'm sure it's the Canterville ghost; just lend him your crayons (the red ones, preferably).

It would probably freak me out a bit but in the end I would have thought it was an interesting experience, or wound up hurting someone that was trying to play a practical joke on me.

Not-tah-prah-blem! I always keep a loaded Reminger under my pillow.

The strongest visual hallucination I've had, oh I just thought of another one.

I was mortally ill a few years ago, and I had some terrible hallucinations. Not of things. But everything in my bedroom was changing sizes. Sometimes I was small, laying in my bed at the foot of the dresser. Sometimes the ceiling was so close to my body I could reach out and touch it. Things that moved, seemed to move faster, as if a videotape had be fast-forwarded 4x. But it was all in my head... well of course it was, but I mean in a mind over matter sort of sense. When someone was perceived to be moving quickly, I was very scared, and I told them to slow down. They looked at me kind of funny and stayed at the same agility. Though not to me. After they looked at me strange, I saw them as moving naturally.

It just occurred to me that I would like to learn more about this. I'll check Wikipedia soon.

The first one I was going to type in, was when I thought a ceiling fan was a bowling pin.

I used to listen to the same Mozart CD, all night, every night. For years. It was common (several times a week) that I would hallucinate the CD playing. I would hear it, from song to song, in the same order as on the CD, even if the CD wasn't playing.

I'm still waiting for an atheist's reply. :shy:
By the way, I wanted to know what you would think about this situation if it would ever happen. I didn't ask you it happened to me and what you would think it was. :devil:

No smarty! I am trying to find out why some people can't sleep anything at night and they have headaches during the day. :wink: You know it's important to know what they think of this situation. So we can find out waht they do during the day(mainly night) how prevent them from falling to sleep. :uhh:
More clarification?

Look up macropsia and micropsia.

I have no idea what this is called, but I have read accounts of it before. I would be very interested if anyone knows more about it. It's opposite also occurs: everything can seem slowed down to a person.

I hate sleep paralysis. I've had it four times, two of those with hallucinations, two without.

You called? Since the Horsemen relieved me of my firearms pending my trial, I guess that I would resort to my less conventional weapons. Whoever it is would either 'fess up to playing a prank, or not leave the room alive. I almost killed my own mother when I was about 18 because she came into my room without knocking and woke me up, much like your situation except a bit more oriented to my way of doing things. It's not a good idea to sneak up on someone who keeps a .44 magnum under the 'guest' pillow (well, when I had guests it was on the night-stand).

And after the brief struggle Danger had with me and my colleagues , in which he relieved me of my head, I have been so embarassed about this, that I only go out covered in linen.
It is such a hassle being headless; my sense of orientation (no; not THAT sense!) is completely warped, so I'm sorry if I happen to stumble into your bedroom night-times.

Don't feel too bad about it, Danger; you just removed the least essential part of me.

I thought all PF'er could meet each other in the other world, but it seems you're 1 of those PF'r whom I'd never meet! :devil:
