I saw a YouTube video today titled, Ghosts, Spirits, and Demons. It’s a compilation of videos from various sources, some allegedly dating back to the 1970's, others I recognized as being fairly recently made. I can’t vouch for the authenticity of any of it. Some of it could have been faked fairly easily, but I have no grounds for saying that it was. Most of it appeared to be real footage of real unexplained events. It’s definitely worth a look – I’d love to hear about it if anyone has concrete information either supporting these videos, or establishing them as hoaxes.
The most interesting clip, to my mind, is the last one. It’s titled, Demon Child in the Mirror, so I was prepared for one of those joke endings where some horrifying scary face from some movie suddenly jumps out at you. Thankfully, that didn’t happen. (I hate those, not only because they’re fake – they always scare the *&# out of me, lol.) What this video did show, was a lovely little girl combing her hair in front of an old-fashioned three-way mirror. Due to the camera angle, we can see the little girl and two of the mirror panels, showing her reflection. She finishes combing, puts down her comb and turns around to face the camera; then she turns back to the mirror for a moment, then back to the camera again. The second time she turns back to the camera, ONE of the reflections doesn’t change...her face appears in the camera and also in the mirror behind her. The reflection in the other mirror panel shows the back of her head, as it should.
I watched this segment several times, pausing repeatedly to study the individual frames, and I haven’t been able to detect any tampering. Admittedly, I’m not an expert, and I know that a lot can be done these days with computer graphics; but the overall quality of this video is simply not that high. It’s good, but it really doesn’t look like it’s been “fixed” at all.
I was especially interested in this segment because of an experience I had several months ago. I walked into the bathroom one night to brush my teeth before bed, and as I turned to look into the mirror, I saw my own face reflected – in profile. Startled, I turned to look at another mirror that hung on the wall next to me – that reflection was normal, and when I turned back to the first one, my own shocked, white face stared back at me.
I am sure of what I saw, but I can’t understand how it could be possible. A hiccup in time? An error in The Matrix, like the black cat that appeared twice in the movie? I have no idea. I only know that I saw my own face in the mirror, from an angle that was impossible according to conventional physics. I saw it for several seconds, and I immediately told my husband about it. I was visibly shaken when we talked about it, and he remembered it right away when I showed him the little girl in the video today.
Has anyone else had an experience similar to this? I’d love to hear about it, if so. Obviously, there’s more to physics (and to life itself) than we currently understand. Please feel free to write to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
