Vanishing Into Another Dimension?

Posted on May 2, 2009

There are many strange stories of mysterious disappearances. Everybody knows about Amelia Earhart, the Mary Celeste, Jimmy Hoffa and maybe even Ambrose Bierce, and hot zones of strange activity like the Bermuda Triangle and similar locations like the Bass Strait Triangle, The Michigan Triangle and the Devil’s Sea but I wanted to investigate the more mysterious and strange disappearances. All of these stories are true and can be found on the internet for further investigation.

In 1815, a prisoner in a Prussian gulag, named Diderici was in a chain gang walking in the prison yard for the day’s exercise. As Diderici walked with his prison inmates, he slowly began to fade in and out of view. His body became more and more transparent until Diderici disappeared altogether, and his manacles and leg irons fell empty to the ground.

On September 23, 1880, David Lang was walking across the grounds of his farm to meet Judge August Peck, and Lang’s brother-in-law, who was approaching his farm in a horse and buggy.u00a0 His wife and two children were watching their father walk across the field. When suddenly Lang vanished in mid-step and in full view of the judge and his family. The ground around where Lang had been walking was searched in case he had fallen into a concealed hole, but no trace was found. The story further states that Lang’s children later called out to him, and heard a disembodied voice calling as if from a great distance.

On December 1, 1949, a Mr. Tetford was on his way home to Bennington Vermont from a trip to St. Albans. Tetford was sitting on the bus with 14 other passengers. They all testified to seeing him there, sleeping in his seat. When the bus reached its destination, however, Tetford was gone, although his belongings were still on the luggage rack and a bus timetable lay open on his empty seat.

In 1975, Jackson Wright and his wife Martha was driving from New Jersey to New York City. According to Wright, he pulled the car over to wipe the windshield of condensation. Martha went to clean off the back window. When he was finished, Wright turned around to discover his wife was missing.

In 1873, James Worson of Leamington Spa, England, was a simple shoemaker who was known to brag about his running abilities. One day, James made a bet with a few of his friends that he could run non-stop from Leamington Spa to Coventry. James began to jog with his friends following in a horse-drawn cart. James did well for the first few miles. Then his friends saw him trip on something and fall forward – but never hit the ground. Instead, James completely vanished. A thorough search was conducted in the area, with hopes he had fallen into a concealed hole but he was never found.

On November 25, 1809 Benjamin Bathurst, a British diplomat, was in the town of Perleberg Germany, while traveling to Hamburg from Berlin. Initially, Bathurst considered staying the night in Perleberg, but eventually decided to continue on to Hamburg. After ordering horses for their coach at a post house, he and his German courier, Herr Krause, had dinner at the White Swan Inn. Several hours later when the coach and fresh horses were ready, Bathurst left the inn, followed seconds after by Herr Krause. When Krause reached the coach he was surprised to find Bathurst was not in the coach and was nowhere to be found. It was thought that he had returned to the inn for some reason before entering the coach, but no trace of him was ever found, despite a thorough search of the area and the town and an extensive investigation and he was never found.

In November 1878, 16 year old Charles Ashmore left his house to fetch water from the well for his family in Quincy, Illinois. After many minutes of waiting, his father and sister went in search, fearing he had slipped in the snow or fallen down the well but he was nowhere to be found. The only sign of him was his footprints in the snow that led halfway to the well, then abruptly stopped. Then his voice pierced the night screaming “Help, help, they have me!” from overhead.

Multiple Disappearances

In November 1930, a fur trapper named Joe Labelle made his way on snow shoes to an Eskimo village, with over 2,000 residents, on the shores of Lake Anjikuni in northern Canada. When he arrived he discovered the village was deserted. All he found a pot of charred stew on a fireplace of cinders. An investigation was initiated. No footprints of any of the residents were found,u00a0 all of the Eskimos’ sled dogs were found buried under a 12-foot-high snow drift starved to death, all of the food and provisions were found undisturbed in their huts. And the Eskimos’ ancestral graves had been emptied.

On February 5, 1923, six hundred inhabitants of the settlement Hoer-Verde in Brazil disappeared. The police thoroughly examined the small town. At the town school, they found a gun, which was apparently used the day before, lying on the floor and the words “there is no salvation” written on a blackboard.

In 1945, a train carrying hundreds of passengers traveling from Guandun, China, to Shanghai was lost halfway to its destination. The track was examined from Guandun to Shanghai with nothing found. There were no survivors or witnesses to explain it’s disappearance.

Almost disappeared

On December 8th Mr. and Mrs. Thomas B Cumpston arrived at the Victoria hotel in Bristol England for a short trip. Early in the evening they began to hear strange, loud sounds in their room. The sounds soon stopped so they returned to bed for the night but were awoken at approx. 3.00am by the same loud noises. The walls and floor appeared to start melting around them. They shouted out for help and could not help but notice how strange their shouts sounded, echoing weirdly and being repeated by unseen presences. Mr. Cumpston then told of how the floor suddenly opened up and how it felt as if he were being pulled into it. Mrs. Cumpston managed to pull him out and the two of them fled out a nearby window. They were panicked beyond belief and were under the impression that criminals had somehow attempted to kidnap them. They were arrested at a nearby railroad station by police for disorderly conduct.

In the past these disappearances might be explained by mermaids, fairies, werewolves and sea creatures, while today more stranger explanations are given like momentary black holes, alien abduction, tears in the fabric of reality, teleportation and being pulled into the fourth dimension. A more recent, and widely accepted, explanation is Reality Shifts. A reality shift is the sudden manifestation of objects appearing, disappearing, transforming and transporting. They supposedly happen all the time around us unnoticed, until one of the few shifts that happen that makes something noticeable disappear like a person or a train. But this is only the newest hypothesis, what do you think?

    I’m the author of this and would like to add that i had bullet points on each of these stories but that doesn’t bother me. This was also an experiment for me on writing an article and i’d like to know what you guys think.

    • lizzy Godding says:

      Perhaps You should watch ” THE FOURTH KIND” This recent release DVD certainly has left me wondering ! and is supposedly based on actual events that took place in NOME ALASKA 2000!

      • Teri says:

        Although a very scary movie, The Fourth Kind is in no way true at all. Not even a single part of it. My husband wanted to research it after I finally sucked it up & we watched it. Nothing in it is true. Not that I don’t believe in it but it would have been nice if it had some truth to it. There was no such doctor etc. Love the movie though, it scared the crap out of me.

    • Alphonzo says:

      one time i was at the hospital for eye surgery when i was called in i put on the hospital gound a layed on the hospital bed i looked straight up and suddenly i saw hands reach up into the air the (size of refrigrators) then slam down on my bodie i couldnt move or feel any thing . i started seeing red walls of flame raise , or i thought , i noticed that walls of flame werent raising but i was being pulled down until i saw nothing but red and white fire . i heard lafter and deep voices next thing i knew i was in a wheel chair getting rolled to the car i arrived in feelling nothing but pain sorround my whole body . i heard voices voices thru the night but the next day i felt revived and energized . when i told everyone what happend they laffed.

      • Kegan says:

        That could be from the drugs they had to put you on. A side effect could be hallucinations. I remember once when I was in the hospital to remove a hernia and I had the strangest, yet so realistic dreams and when I awoke from the medicine I was to wait a few minute to finally realize those dreams were only dreams.

  2. The Caretaker says:

    Hey Brackette. Nice job researching and putting all this together!

    I added some bullets, hope it is to your liking.

  3. Brackette says:

    The Caretaker

    Thanks. You didn’t have to do that. As i was writing it i put bullets but as soon as i put it on here they disappeared so thanks for adding them again.

    • Chii says:

      The bullet’s dissapeared into the fourth dimension…

      • ce says:

        yeah the bullets are in the fourth dimension

        • Andrew says:

          Don’t be mean i belive this and if youre a skeptic we don’t care

          • Caretaker says:

            EVERYONE should be a skeptic. That only means that you dont just automatically believe stuff without having some sort of proof. Some may think that you cant be a skeptic and believe in things like the paranormal but that isnt true. Basically if you are not a skeptic then you will believe anything that anyone tells you. I think most of us are skeptics whether we realize it or not.

  4. rebecca says:

    i hope this doesnt sound stupid but.. after reading this hell instantly came to my head. Do you think its possible?

    • Pat says:

      I can see that… everything slipping away and you are virtually in a zone that you neither recognize or want to be in! VERY SCARY! And I thought spontaneous combustion was scary!

    • Annie says:

      Maby it is possible. It might be that or your imagination going wild. if you really thought that is what you say then i wll not augru with you. it is a senseibul thing to think.

  5. Brackette says:

    rebecca

    Anything’s possible at this point, especially with the story from Hoer-Verde, Brazil.

  6. L. M. S. says:

    Yikers. Creepy. I’ve never heard of people and things disappearing like that.

  7. Blue jay says:

    Sounds creepy…I’m new to this site, hello everybody.
    Vanishing into thin air?
    Anything is possible, I guess.
    Nothing was found on the spot most of them disappeared on?
    Sounds very, very spooky…maybe they were chosen by a higher entity for something.
    Maybe God decided it was time for a talk…
    There are millions of possibilities.
    AN ENTIRE FLIPPING TRAIN DISAPPEARING WITHOUT A TRACE ON THE TRACKS?! NOW, THAT IS FREAKY!
    How can an entire train disappear, with no trace on the tracks, without the paranormal researchers (What are we called again?) getting involved?
    Surely the entity ( if there was one) that did that knew that somebody would find out?
    Forgive me if I’m hyping you up, but why did they take a risk as to being discovered just to take a train off of the tracks?
    Do they not care, did they have to take the risk for some obscure reason?
    Is it even true?

    • Jessica says:

      Hello welcome :) guess your right. hmmm the whole train disappered huh? I wonder where they go…. :/

  8. rebecca says:

    im new too, hello to you.

  9. Alpha says:

    Wow…
    I’ve heard of some of the ones you listed in this article before and didn’t know what to think of it.
    It’s just so incredible that stuff like this is happening and people continue to ignore it, simply dismissing it as fiction. This truly goes to show there is more to this world then we honestly know or maybe will ever know.
    There could be so many explanations for this sort of phenomenon.
    Scary stuff for sure!!

    P.S. Nicely constructed article Brackette!!! It was an excellent read!!!
    Caretaker, you should recommend this article to subscribers and add it onto the popular paranormal blog entries on the homepage. This article will truly be a hit!!
    I’m currently at my school library and the lady next to me read it and asked me for the site

  10. Jackie says:

    Brackette, that was very interesting and well written.

    When i used to meditate, i used to feel very strange sometimes, like i was almost reaching another dimension, then one evening right in front of about 7 people, whilst 4 of us were playing Backgammon, i involuntarily dropped my head down and was in another place. I was watching people walk on a very dusty ground, which hadn’t seen a drop of water for ages. It felt like i was in this place for ages, but when i came round my friend at the side of me said it had only been seconds. Everyone was looking at me a bit weird, and i was a bit freaked by this sudden experience, especially as it was in front of people.

    Nothing like that has ever happened since, but i’ll always remember it.

    I totally believe the stories you wrote and i think one of the freakiest is the eskimo one, what the hell happened there????

      • Shadeydave says:

        Sounds like sleep paralysis with a little hypnagogia thrown in for good measure. These things can be quite alarming and very real to the one who experiences the phenomena. But it’s very well documented in sleep clinics and by neurologists and psychologists. Oddly, it doesn’t take a lot to make us hallucinate. Sleep deprivation, strong EM fields, seizures, you name it. From your extreme pain and lack of taking pain killers, you could also be suffering from some severe sleep deprivation… I know I’ve fallen prey to such hallucinations. I was convinced that I was getting abducted by aliens, but a little further investigation gave me a much better, and well researched answer, that’s backed up by mainstream science. No fairy-tales needed.

        • dukeman says:

          sleep paralysis is common at your age, im 17 and my family in many cases has had this problem. even myself. last year, i was asleep, or i thought i was. it felt like i was half awake. suddenly it felt like something was dragging me off of my bed, i tried to scream but nothing came out. its weird because when i came out of it i was on the opposite side of my bed. its not possible for me to slide across my bed on my own?
          This could be sleep paralysis or night terrors. i do not believe it is paranormal, i think it is brought on by stress, or not enough sleep because of perscription drugs or lack of sleep.

  11. Blue jay says:

    I have something I feel is related to this, or atleast partly:
    I see colors.
    Not just those things you see on objects, I mean floating around, in different shapes.
    Kind of what you get when you close your eyes, then press down on them, minus the pain and explosions, and I see it all the time.
    There is a jagged red streak next to the screen right now, and now it’s half blue, half red.
    When I look at someone, say my teacher, I can see an extra layer of some kind of material surrounding them…kind of like a dim white light.
    The colors correspond to the moods people are in. Say my mom’s ticked off at me for something taht I don’t know about, I see red when I’m about to go in her room.
    If somebody’s about to punch me, I get the urge to duck, even if I can’t see them.
    Sometimes they gather in one spot, as if trying to show me something.
    Right now I’m looking at the dresser, and they’re all gathered around it.
    Am I nuts?!

    • Chii says:

      I wouldn’t say your nuts
      Maybe you can see aura’s, most people think that’s a load of ~Censor~ but I believe it’s possible, you probably should maybe check it out at the doctors to see if it’s explainable though, ’cause it’s probably kinda scary for you… even though your probably used to it by now

    • DrW says:

      Possibly synesthesia. Some people have this.

    • Anonymous says:

      Aura’s are real, they have to be. I have done some electronic training and ANYTHING that has any kind of a running circuit HAS an electro magnetic field around it. We have a heart beat with blood rushing through our bodies and so it is logical and obvious that we would have a field around us or an aura as it’s better known. A lot of people can see them if they concentrate on someone or something. You seem to have a special gift for it so use it as you need to.

      • Alphonzo says:

        i can see auras one time i looked at one of my teachers and her aura was black the next day she was in the hospital and a couple hours later she died

    • jettblack says:

      Um.. Blue Jay I posted what should have been a reply to you at the bottom of this page as a comment on the article just a few minutes ago please look at it. Thanks!

    • selene says:

      I wouldn’t stop seeing this bacteria looking thing everywhere I look. Eyes closed or opened.
      I also see a random pair of eyes( the same type of transparent you see after opening your eyes) and I see thousands of tiny dots everywhere I look! are they atoms? No way! I can’t even read the back of a car withing 20 meters! besides. the dots are dim lights. It makes me feel like I’m in the second book of darren shan- the demonata…
      Another wierd thing is that I can see through my left eyelid ever since I was shot there with a BBgun. my eye has to look at the sunrise everytime I sleep! It’s more of annoying than cool. anyways- I can see shadows everywhere through my eyelid. It is not veins! and I can’t see through my eyelids well. I can only make out shapes enough to tell how many fingers you hold.

      • selene says:

        I even feel things before touching them.
        Even wierd( I bet you won’t believe this) I can hear motion all around me.
        I hear everything I see
        I even hear the motion inside a plants.
        Everything I see whether they move or not has a sound and I can hear them.
        I even hear my friends backstab me 50 meters away from me EVERY SINGLE WORD.

      • Anonymous says:

        I read those books and that is exactly what i thought of when you said that!

      • tyra says:

        Hey selene i see the weird bacterium thing too. everywhere. closed eyes or open ones,i see it all the time. even in the sky. its kinda weird butim kinda used to it.

      • Alphonzo says:

        hey selene i can also do all those things too and i can also see auras i can tell if someones sick,happy,sad,angry,guilty,etc . all emotions and health related issues . cancer is red dots on black aura

        • Hippogriff says:

          Whoa. I wish I could do all that stuff.

          • Selene says:

            you wouldn’t, It’ll make you feel guilty, and if you said a word, after an hour you’d be wearing a snow white straight jacket.

        • Shadeydave says:

          Synesthesia. What happens is your senses get crosswired. Some people can taste sound, some people see colours when they read, some people see sound, or hear color.

          My mother considers herself to be a very good judge of character. She also claims to be able to see auras. I don’t think she’s a liar, but if synesthesia can extend to senses, perhaps it can also extend to emotions like empathy or judgement. It is, afterall just another way of experiencing data. Like looking at an array of numbers, or a graph that shows the exact same data set.

          Sometimes when you are able to see a complex set of data in a simple visual way, you can process the information a lot quicker. So, what she reads as posture, skin complexion, facial expression, and perceives as attitude, might translate into an accurate colour set superimposed u0096 by her brain u0096 over the person she’s studying. Allowing her to ‘sense’ an underlying problem that would take a lot longer to discern from someone who doesn’t have this gift. Something to think about.

    • rockypercynico says:

      No, I think you see auras. Many people see them but don’t know how to react. I don’t though I do see ghosts often. I see a white figure following my math teacher along, it looks like a man of about 23. Her older brother died when she was six, she doesn’t remember him too well but he remembers her obviously as he’s following her around her classroom, overprotective much?

  12. Blue jay says:

    For all those wondering, I haven’t been known to get hallucinations, illusions, and am not mentally ill, according to my birth record.

  13. Blue jay says:

    Back to the subject:
    There is no salvation.
    It could mean many things.
    Maybe the inhabitants were forced to leave in a hurry.
    The only real explanation I can think of is aliens, or some kind of illness.
    Illness theory:
    …ever noticed how the capital i looks like lowercase L?
    I l….BAck to the subject.
    Perhaps they were forced to leave because of an illness that threatened to wipe them all out.
    When they left, they found that some of them still carried the disease or sickness.
    They couldn’t get rid of it in time, and perhaps in about a week, they were all sick.
    Maybe they thought that if they ever went back to civilization, they knew that they could start an epidemic, so, they sacrificed themselves. Perhaps they knew people would come searching, so they hid themselves underground, or in a tree, where the search party wouldn’t get sick. Seems like a logical explanation, no? It would explain the ‘There is no salvation’ on the board, would it not?
    But the odds…
    I have just invented another theory: bandits, perhaps?
    A group of bandits chased them wherever they went, and slaughtered an entire village…Highly unlikely, but, as has been proven many times over on this site, NOTHING is impossible. There, also an explanation for the ‘There is no salvation’.
    Alien theory:
    Perhaps they were abducted by creatures from another planet.
    This would not explain the writing on the chalkboard.
    So that’s all that I will describe about it.
    Zombies, maybe?
    HIGHLY unlikely, but has anyone ever seen this completely corny and crappy movie called resident evil? It SUCKS, but it has a point. If a type of creatures could exist, and were called zombies, couldn’t they wipe out a village?
    There is a scene in this ‘future’ world, where the hunters go into a classroom, and see abandoned desks, blackboards, everything.
    I find the resemblance to this thing in brazil uncanny.
    It would explain the ‘there is no salvation’ thing, too.
    Anybody care to add anything?

    • courtney says:

      wow, i wish i could do the same, i love being able to see spirits but i also want to see my own aura……

    • Davie D says:

      Interesting breakdown. I tend to go with the infinite dimension theory. Our brains hold the secret to getting there, too bad we can’t use the whole thing!?

    • john green says:

      ok look we have to think i meen where do we go when we pass on are we gone for ever just gone no more what about loved ones babys mothers fathers brothers sisters all them feelings gone the love for eachother what kind of god could do such a thing we live in a big unavirse ..and who knows whats beond that what if our god has a god ans so on and on where were we before we came to earth were we nowhere did we not exsist at all if you can amagine a living creature smaller than the smallest thing even smaller .it looks at the world and says my this is big it only sees as far as your back garden the rest of the world is so big it cant understand and yet it lives along side us every day we dont even know its there lets say that we live in a billion places at one time .yes right now you could be living on a different world living a life that has no wars no sickness no money problms all is very nice in this world and in another your doing something different you might be female or male we are only starting to learn that there is lots and lots of dimentions billions criss croing all the time …and when i say time i meen no time because time does not matter ..its all a bit weard but if we could travle at the speed of light we might find that time is only our blanket ..if a spirt is seen iwalking down a street on a summers day that surly tells us that time does not exsist ..a man was working in a celler in a pub in london one day ..when a full army from roman times walked past him in full battle gear they were in their own time zone so if their in one zone and we are in another who is in the wright one ..no one if we xcould travle at the speed of light we would see our selfs living many lifes ..we could go back to the big bang you could go back and watch your mum as a child …and the great thing is you could go faword as well time is like a ripple in the sea it goes in many different directions…when people are in a life or death cinarieo they say time stands still …whatsthe point of putting us here for only 60 70 years when the cosmos is so large …think of it this way look at a long plank that plank is time from one end to the other we exsist on one part of it if you look at the end of it you will see our past look ahead to our fuature if we could use the speed of light we could go to any part of the plank we wanted ohh and while your on the plank look up and out and side ways we live on the plank thats our plane we are so small to understand that the plank is part of a bigger exsistance ..the plank in only in your back yeard now look beond over the wall over the fence ……ps sorry for the bad spelling

  14. Brackette says:

    Blue jay

    Some people might say you see auras or you may have the same thing as me which is synesthesia which is basically a screw up in the wiring of the senses, for instance i see colors when i hear sounds. There are different kinds, for me it’s a crossing of the wires with sight and sound but it can be with any of the senses like smell, touch or taste.

  15. Jackie says:

    Bluejay,

    I used to be able to see my aura around my hands if I put them against a dark background and then just looked slightly away from them. After a while a faint light used to appear all around the edges of my hands, if i kept my gaze fixed in a certain way. Then i’d lose it when i had to blink. It was amazing the first time i did this.

    I haven’t done this in ages though.

    • Hal says:

      It’s called blurry vision.

    • Shadeydave says:

      This is actually a chemical process of your eyes. Your eyes have evolved to constantly be in motion. If you fixate on one location for too long you will notice some crazy effects. Like staring at black text on a white background. If you look away from that text your eyes will retain the image of the text for a while.

      It’s like getting phosphor burn on an old Tube TV. Your retina behaves in the same way, though chemically. If you stare at a single, high contrast image for a long time the chemicals that your rods and cones use to react to the light they receive will deplete and you will need more and more light to react, leaving dark patches in your vision. Fortunately they are always replenishing these photo receptor chemicals, so taking a quick break will allow them to adjust back.

    Blue Jay,
    how about write yoyr own story i this website? XD i’m interested in the color you see!

    Back to the story, wow it’s really wierd. maybe all of them suddenly enter a door or someting that lead to another dimension or even the other world? like the spirit world or the dimension where the death spirit live in?
    i think that the one that about 16 year old Charles Ashmore and the other sudden disappearance might enter a unseen door to another world/dimension

  17. Jennifer says:

    Your story reminded me of the disappearance of Ambrose Small from Toronto, Canada.
    I read a book about haunted places, etc in Toronto that I bought while visiting Canada and they mentioned Ambrose Bierce in the story about Ambrose Small and quoted someone as saying, “Somebody is collecting Ambroses.”
    Maybe there is some sort of connection that is being overlooked between all of these cases?? Who knows?? Maybe someday we will know!

    • Kegan says:

      I have to agree with Jennifer. With all the those mysterious vanishings and no explanation, perhaps there is some connection that we have yet to find. All we know about those people is the facts. Their D.O.B, their sex, their education, and everything that has been documented. Everyone has secrets. Everyone has something that no one else knows about. If there is a connection between these people, it’s a connection that we will NEVER know. It’s a connection that only they have knowledge of. Our world is mind blowing. And for those who do not believe it, were you there? Did you witness what happened? Chances are, no. So you have no room to talk. There is no right or wrong answer, only pure beliefs. I believe this stuff happened. I don’t know if it’s true or not, but until we know for sure, I believe it.

  18. trolldoll1681 says:

    these happenings are documented and i believe in alternate realities and anything is possible in this weird wonderful world we live in oh and by the way what is a bullet?

    • Davie D says:

      There is only one reality, the one that exists for each individual. However, there are an infinite number of dimensions. I believe that we do ‘something’ to open portals to another dimension. Reading these stories leads me to believe that something beyond a state of total relaxation opens these portals. Something in the realm of being mind numb, totally shut down. The human brain is a mystery, we only use a fraction of its capacity, who knows what lurks in the unused depths of our minds?

    They are simply always there.
    Thanks for replying, though.
    Nice article, too.

    Thank you all for replying.

    Time stopping theory?
    Think about this: If somebody stopped time, then restarted it, you wouldn’t know because you weren’t active during that nonexistent space of time created between the nanoseconds.
    Doesm’t make much sense, does it?
    Think about it though.
    Got it?
    Well, if an object were to have moved while time was frozen, then wouldn’t it appear to you as if it had ‘moved’? Teleported?
    This may have happened to some people in this article…

    • alan hunt says:

      You know, my math teacher says that he is psychic. he keeps reading people’s minds like crazy. On time, we all gathered in class, and he read a few selected minds, each one successfully, but he said the minds had to be willing. you can in fact hide stuff from him, but he finished my sentence in class for me, and he didn’t even know where I was going with the conversation. I must say, this is the weirdest thing I have seen in a long time.

      • jettblack says:

        I think that is sooo cool! I would LOVE to meet your teacher!

      • Speed says:

        Who’s this teacher?! I also had a teacher who used to say he was psychic and that whole mind has to be willing thing, it might be the same person? I used to be so embarrased cause I had a crush on the teacher ( who hasn’t?) and I used to think he would find out by reading my mind lol I was in high school!!

    maybees

    maybe watever happend at bermuda triangle, has happend at those points as well for some fraction of moment
    maybe there wer really invisible aliens wch have selectively taken away ppl bcoz they dint attack the witness.
    maybe there was some intense energy in the form of heat that it just could burn the body into tiny ashes very quickly
    maybe there wer some radiations comming from some other galaxy wch have caused this effect
    maybe all these things are made up on internet for publicity. after all u can`t just believe stuff on internet
    and so on……….. as u keep thinkin
    there has to be some expalantion. the explanation depends on the series of events the witness will observe wen he or she is not in the state of shock. after all are all these incidents real? if they are then there is some theory which can explain these events bcoz matter can neigther be created nor destroyed. so just dont worry

  25. Suzana Ahmad says:

    For Asian we believe and respect paranormal. The cases mention in our term means that they have been taken to another dimension where the Bunian lives. 1 day their live is 1 year our time. Most of the people abducted are nice,sincerely and good persons,

  26. Arthur Borges says:

    Wikipedia has an entry on Bathurst. Bones were found not that long ago when workers tore down a house near the inn he left. It is likely the diplomat was mugged and killed.

  28. motomoto says:

    fascinating. a couple of the stories i’ve heard of, i find it sad because where did they go? could it be that they are somewhere foreign to them and stuck there until God knows when. Its involuntary most of the time. I like this kind of stuff.

  29. chris says:

    welcome we should explore the 4th dimension the same exact placea of these disapearances but ware we would go no one knows but Y was it them Y not someone else but wen god comes will we stiil c them or are they stuck in a disappearance 4 ever or will we c them in dreams or reality

  30. bracket says:

    So the majority of you guys seem to think they went to heaven or hell.

  31. duddledeedo says:

    I believe they were shifted to another time or place, but i think that if they were indeed shifted into the past we would have known abt it, especially for the train.
    What is really freaky though is when he 16 yr old boy who went to get water from the well screamed : Help, help, they’ve got me ! now what is THAT about ??

  32. Karen M. says:

    I always thought it was the third dimension, where people disappear out of no where.

  33. Bracket says:

    Karen M.

    We are in the third dimension.

  34. Karen M. says:

    What about the twilight zone, that was the third dimension

  35. Bracket says:

    Do you believe everything Rod Serling says?

  36. CMF says:

    lol, that was the 5th dimension.
    There are 11 dimensions, google string theory or m theory and hold onto your brain its deep. Parallel universes and all that. Which makes sense when you think in the context of the paranormal. Could just be shadows from a parallel universe.

  37. CMF says:

    then there is:

    you owe it to yourself to at least should know of this story, as it was on Oprah, Unsolved Mysteries, America’s Most Wanted, KTLA, and in various newspapers even a congressman urged the FBI to look into his vanishing

    Philip ‘Taylor’ Kramer rock star bassist & mathematical genius/aerospace engineer worked at Northrop on the MX missile project. A student of theoretical physics, he pursued particles and equations that he believed would someday permit objects to move faster than the speed of light “warp speed” making possible travel to the stars.

    He vanished on February 12th, 1996. The circumstances surrounding it has been the subject of many tv shows. Just days before he disappeared, Kramer and his father believed they had worked out a mathematical breakthrough, says Iron Butterfly band co-founder Ron Bushy, “We’re talking ‘Beam me up Scotty’ time.”

    This may be the key to cracking the light-speed problem. It could make possible instantaneous transmission of matter
    and data to any point in the universe.

    The Equation, his father Ray Kramer says, combines the work of science’s greatest minds: Newton, Einstein, Planck and Fermi. Relativity, quantum mechanics, quarks: It’s all here, but no one else has put it all together

    In May 1999, two hikers discovered Kramers 1993 Ford Aerostar van at the bottom of a Malibu, Calif., ravine. Skeletal remains found inside and near the vehicle were confirmed through dental records to be those of Kramer.

    • tyra says:

      i think they tried to move faster than warp speed themselves….

    • Alphonzo says:

      i think someone already knew about lightspeed and all that good stuff and wanted it all to him or her self so they killed kramer because they found out that he was on a scientific breakthrough and killed him to keep the secret

  38. Bracket says:

    CMF

    Well, it sounds like he drove off the cliff.

  39. Karen M. says:

    Bracket so then I’m right,people disappear in the third dimension, if we’re in it!

  40. Bracket says:

    Karen M.

    Well…. Yeah.

  41. vanessa87 says:

    this information was interesting and creeped me out as well..i dont think these people went to hell and or heaven.i think they simply vanished to another world..i guess yeah another dimension..why? who knows..how? no idea..was there a unexplainable energy thing going on at that time and place when each of them vanished then causing them to enter this whole diff world? absolutley no clue..but i would like to learn more and read more stories like this. im fascinated by it.at the same time weirded out..

  42. Daniela says:

    wow! i just got done reading this and i find it rather fascinating, but also very confusing s well. i ask how does this happen? and why? i honestly believe that it could be alien abtuction, or maybe there are “chosen’” ones to slip into the fourth dimension?? i dont know but i do believe this could happen, questions is how? how does one just dissapear just like that?? very creepy.

  43. Alexis says:

    I just don’t believe it.
    None of it sounds possible,
    and there are no recent cases
    only from way back when with people who
    are long gone and can’t tell their side of the story.
    Nicely written. Sorry for the negativity.

  44. Bracket says:

    Alexis

    The reason why they’re stories from a long time ago is because there has to be time for them to be gone to make it a mystery. If somebody mysteriously disappears today then turns up tomorrow, it’s not so mysterious is it. There has to be time for the mystery to deepen.

  45. William P. says:

    The first thing that comes to mind for me is the heaven or hell theory. But my simple mind is limited to this, the “third” dimension.

  46. Leo says:

    What I believe is not relavant. What I observe is. This combined with the observations and studies of others suggest the following to me:

    In most cases of people “disappearing” there is no witness to the actual event; only a person(people) that isn’t(aren’t) where they are expected to be. This doesn’t mean that they did not vanish, but it leaves to much room for other malicious yet explainable circumstances.

    The cases that are interesting are when someone dematerializes or simply vanishes while someone that remain with us is observing. I’m sorry but I can’t take the word of a gang of prisoners or guards that this guy didn’t just escape and disappearing is the cover story. Again, that doesn’t prove that this account or others are invalid.

    Overall you have to wonder if the current direction of some Theoretical Quantum Physicist are thinking in was spurred by trying to explain these vanishings or dematerializations; which again suggests that there is truth to the possibility of this phenomenom or there would be no money to pull from to support research in other dimensions.

    It is curious, however, that there are not current open cases world wide of someone or something “dematerializing” in front of witnesses unexpectedly. If this is something that just “happens” there should be something going on right now even, or at least in the past 30 years, something that there are witnesses to the actually moment of disappearance. There can always be cover up stories though.

    So until something vanishes right before my eyes (and Ideally another person of sound mind to confirm what I observe) I remain sceptical but open minded to the possibilities of our mysterious Universe.

  47. CMF says:

    Bracket

    After I submitted the dang article I read the ending.. lol.. your right, but for a looong time there was mystery surrounding that guy not the least of which was him time traveling away!

  48. Leo says:

    Perhaps Kramer didn’t reach the required 88 MPH in order for his Flux Capacitor to work.

  49. Lori says:

    Has anyone considered the legend of the Native American spirit, the wendigo, in relation to the boy and the water? It’s said that the wendigo grabs its victims while they’re walking, pulling them along so that they have to run across the ground just to keep from being dragged. Their feet get hotter and hotter as they move faster, until they just burn away, and then the wendigo lifts its victim up into the air, screaming. The only thing they ever find of the victim is their footprints.

    I think it’s something valid to look into.

  50. Serenity says:

    Here’s my theory:

    I think they DID pass into the 4th dimension. It is said that if you skydive from the right height, and right angle, you can pass into another dimension. But think about ghosts and vampires, and all of this Paranormal stuff? Maybe once we die, we go INTO the 4th dimension, and once we’re there, we can travel between the worlds, but we show up as ghosts when we’re in our dimension.

    • Kind Skeptic says:

      the skydiving statement is bunk. between my husband and I, we have about 6,000 jumps from all altitudes. Nope — you don’t go into another dimension. you just have FUN! LOL

    • Davie D says:

      You’re getting there!

  51. Disaffected Intelligence says:

    Blue Jay: It’s called Synesthesia. Look it up.

  52. Envy says:

    I also think theres a 4th dimension.I agree with Serenity.Maybe its possible to go to 4th dimension at the exact time and place.But the next question that pops into my head ,whats the 4th dimension like?

  53. Flames says:

    Hey, i saw this movie a few months ago called The Girl Who Lept Through Time. It’s an anime movie made in japan or somthing. Anyway, it’s about this girl who can leap through time by running, then jumping really high into the air. then time pretty much rewinds back to whatever time in history you want. In the movie though, the first time that she ” time leaps” it was by accident. Maybe that’s what is happening to these people! (In case you were wondering, the movie is NOT a true story…but it could happen. You never know.)

  54. Alexa says:

    blue jay, welcome! do u like this place?

    i would never want to ee things like u blue jay . i’ll get scared.

  56. Patricia says:

    I live in Brazil and I NEVER heard about this Hoer-Verde settlement here in Brazil. We have many stories and urban legends and this is not part of them! Can you give me sites or books which talk about this fact? I tried to search in internet and thereu00b4s no site with additional information, only the same text I found out here. This is really strange…

  57. CMF says:

    haha I love when these things get busted…

  58. bracket says:

    It did happen, but there never really is much info on it. I actually first heard about it when i visited a museum in Brazil maybe 8 years ago. But i agree there is never enough info on it.

    • Patru00edcia says:

      I would like to know more about Hoer-Verde. Can you tell me the name of the museum? So maybe I could search for information with someone there…

  59. uh says:

    this could be fake you know, since no info shows up on the internet

  60. Bracket says:

    Patru00edcia

    I’m sorry, i can’t remember. I’m not trying to make this hard for you but info on it is hard to find.

    @uh

    There is info for it on the internet, there just isn’t much.

  61. Kei says:

    THAT IS SO COOL. ITS AWESOME… AWESOME THAT YOU WROTE A BOOK ON THIS.
    It’s not awesome that people get taken away from their families to an unknown place of course but… ]: It’s just so interesting… Going to different worlds is so amazing… Do you think some of them might be going to good places? This is so cool btw. Love this stuff. YAY FOR YOU! :D DDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD im excited now.

  62. CMF says:

    No more sugar for Kei…

  63. Silly-Bear says:

    lol’d at kei (:
    but wow. thats amazing that these THINGS can have enough power to do that. i can see why they took the brazil. even though that could mean anything im a strong believer of god and heaven, though hell i dont believe would be able to do that. nothing i know of would even be close.
    i think that maybe they never really got taken or disappeared…. cuz why? theyre obviously is no special thing that theyve done. or any reason. that could easily just happen to me at the same chances as anyone else. it could just be the way you are looking at them or possibly blackout. i do that sometimes and ill miss an entire minute and it appears thet the person disappeared, but theyve just moved ahead and ive missed it. or it could be something thats in your mind that noone really knows about.
    something we do not know

  64. nix says:

    this is so creepy..i had read of these before but i still wonder! how is it possible!!

  65. Falin says:

    I like your theory Serenity it sounds nice and safe, not scary at all.

    Lori thanks for your Wendigo I will now probably have nightmares as I’m a bit of a wimp and things like that stay on my mind for months.

    And Bracket, if someone vanishes and there are people watching why should it take years to become a mystery? The article is quite interesting but looking into each individual ‘happening’ on the Internet it looks like most of the disappearances have already been discounted as hoaxes!

    Something I am happy about because if they aren’t, this would be one terrifying article.

  66. chunk up the deuce says:

    i wish i knew were those people went 2

  67. Tommy says:

    I’ve read about these and other’s. Have you read about the people who camped on the ground’s at Stonehenge? The entire camp was gone except for smoldering pins from their tent’s. I’m only concerned about those people who were taken and their well being. I pray that none of them are suffering in any way, and their ordeal was not to traumatic. I have no guess as to what is taken place, nor do I know who is behind these abduction’s. The fact that some are heard in the spot above where they were taken might be some clue as to where they are. And people must understand there is so much the American Government know’s but is so set on not telling us. I do Remember an event in which a town in Brazil was terrorized by some unknown craft. It kept attacking people and withdrawing blood with some sort of light beam. Curfews were set and people would actually not leave their home’s for anything.

    The United States is more powerful then one would wish to think, I myself am an American and I really distrust my own government. Who are they to decide if people are able to cope with the infromation that Humanity isn’t alone. HAARP, Echelon, Area 51 and extraterrestrials are just the bottom of that list. One day it will become impossible to keep this from the world. In the mean time I hope people will continue to do their own investigation and seek the impossible, one day we may just find out what happened to these people and why.

    • tyra says:

      I would like to know the truth our government probably isnt telling us too. However think about it: how do you tell SO MUCH men, women and children that aliens (and that type of stuff) are actually real and we might have no way at all to defend ourselves from them? Most of the people would get scared/panicked.

    • Camila says:

      I totally agree. It must be the US GOvernment who’s behind all these things !! They can just make people dissapear lol

    “A reality shift is the sudden manifestation of objects appearing, disappearing, transforming and transporting. ” Most likely from eating to many magic mushrooms

  70. ... says:

    Wow,when i done read whole this story.Honestly, i was little surprise with disappearance,and wonder if where i disappear into 4th Dimension?

    I thinking this is could be supernatural doing thing or making prank happen to fool.Possible god make it fun of us….could be?

  71. Megan says:

    The stories of a single person disappearing are not that shocking, to be honest, as there are a vast number of things that could have happened to them. Anyone can add a ‘disembodied voice’ to a story to increase the shock value.

    But the stories about entire villages disappearing.. quite disturbing, to say the least. I just can’t seem to wrap my mind around it. There doesn’t seem to be any way you can logically, rationally explain that. Alien abduction popped into my mind at first, but that doesn’t quite seem to fit. The idea of slipping into a 4th dimension is so eerie. None of us can even begin to imagine it, as our minds are programmed to operate in this dimension. I’d like to think that it’s just some neat alternate world, but my instinct is that it is something much more sinister. And the fact that there doesn’t seem to be any rhyme or reason to it, that these events just happen at random.. let’s just say that I am thoroughly creeped out now.

  72. raven says:

    curioser and curioser. i have read about these dissapperances and i always wondered as to where they went whether it is to a different dimesion or a different reality we might nver know. i think that these people went in to a different world that is so unlike our own that mabe they just did not want to come back to a world that is full of evil and unspeakable horror. I don’t however think that the dissapperences are entirly random. they may have had something that only they counld offer whatever that is i don’t know.

  73. ComradeJim says:

    If there is info, post links on here, this sounds far to fake. Isn’t the 4rth dimension time space anyway IIRC?

  74. looking for a good ghost story says:

    WOW! That sounds wierd how can a whole person just vanish like FREAKY!!!!

  75. Grey Wolf says:

  77. SmexiiSteve says:

    “The fact that some are heard in the spot above where they were taken might be some clue as to where they are. ” – Tommy

    Tommy: Yeah like in the article, or story, the evidence states that the children of the father or whatever that dissapeared from going to the well heard him say they have me and all that stuff, it makes me think that maybe he dissapeared in like a different dimension that is parallel to this one but its all relatively the same so they could hear him, or it hasn’t manifested him enough for him to be completely blocked out by this dimension you know?

    “HAARP, Echelon, Area 51 and extraterrestrials are just the bottom of that list.” – Tommy

    To Any Whom It Concerns: What IS HAARP, Echelon, and Area 51? i’ve never really understood any of that.

  78. Tony L. says:

    I’ve read about stuff like that my whole life. I’ve always found it interesting. It’s kind of like reading a novel with the last chapter removed, there’s never an ending, just people throwing ideas into a hat. I’ll probably keep reading about it as long as it happens though.

  79. Dave says:

    This may soundcrazy but I believe that these people were abducted by demons, aka UFOs

  80. Leo says:

    Dave:

    Crazy as that may sound I have considered the possibilities of that line of thinking. There is a certain amount of logic to Demons being an explaination for “UFO/Alien” or “Ghost/Paranormal” events. Of course this would not occur to someone if they do not have a fundamental belief in the existance of Demons or are at least open minded enough to consider the possibility.

  81. Tony L. says:

    I have my doubts about the “demon” theory. Otherwise people would be dissappearing before my eyes all the time. And if it was ufo’s, then they didn’t think it out very well. It would be much easier to take people when they’re by themselves or asleep, you know, indiscreetly. If they wanted people to see them take someone on the other hand, there’s also better places to do that. Like in the middle of a crowded mall, or a running back during monday night football, or a congressman addressing congress while on c-span. I do find an interest in reading about things like this though and it makes for good copy. Maybe it’s a publicist

    • jettblack says:

      Maybe “aliens” if they do exist want us to fear them – if they are responsible for this.

  88. MZ.A says:

    I agree with Tommy.I am from the United States , I Love my country very much ,but our government is not very nice in many aspects especially when it comes to cover-ups if you were from here you would understand.
    Here is a short story that was not mentioned and I’m not sure of it’s validity but I read it a long time ago.A family in spain had guest visiting for the holidays they all had a wonderful time and when the evening was over two of the families got into their cars to go home ,as the car in front was driving a deep fog came from out of nowhere and suddenly engulfed the car which was unusual since it was clear everywhere else, and as it went through the fog the car in back also passed through it and when it came through they saw that the first car was gone just that quick and all was clear again no one could understand what was going on or knew what to do about it (there were no cell phones at the time this story took place.)however the second car did phone the host of the party once they reached their destination to let them know what had happened. A few days later the people in the first car telephoned to say they didn’t know how or why it happened but they were driving along a sudden fog came down,they couldn’t see but the next thing they knew they were driving along a road in Mexico! This is suppose to be a true story.Thanks for letting me share it with you.

    as the comments keep going they get more and more wayward. this story is a schism between two universes.

    lets just set the record straight, we are not even talking about the “fourth dimension” here at all, comrade is right the fourth demention is time and the first three dementions are space. dimensions can only be used to better describe one point, if you have two points the same dimensions would be used to describe point A and B of these people’s travels. but crazy happens all the time i wouldnt be suprrised if the ground gave out under me

    I think all of this stuff is fake. The Bermuda Triangle, fake. All this stuff is made up to make money. How many books are there by how many different authors are there about the Bermuda Triangle alone? Yes, people have never been found, but so what. The ocean is to vast and deep for most search teams to find anything. People go missing all the time. Probably due to the drug war kidnappings on our boarders. There is no proof that all these “missing people” are due to aliens and goblins coming for us in the night. Show me a real picture or video that wasnt a hoax, good luck with that, and Ill go along with yall quietly. Until then, have fun making authors of bogus with no actual evidence, as you would need in court, rich and prosperous.

    i’ve always figured that dimensions were like the plates in the earth, that they just sort of brushed by each other and bumped into each other, and that was when something wierd happened, such as disappearances.
    this subject, with the idea that people can just randomly slip into another dimension or time, has always fascinated me. i don’t know if the stories above are true, (i have yet to look them up) but i do know of several others. like one where my older cousin was walking out in the field behind her house (she lived in Oscoda, Michigan- near Lake Huron) with her two dogs. She was just walking when she looked up to see someone in the distance who appeared to be reaching up at something. one of her dogs broke into a run, followed by the other to greet this stranger. apparently the stranger was completely unaware of the dogs as they neared closer. the dogs had stopped within feet of him and were curiously sniffing around him or something like that, and he just kept playing around with something that my cousin couldn’t see. she kept calling off the dogs, but of course they didn’t listen. then one of the dogs got spooked for some reason, although nothing else had happened, and started barking at this guy, who still wasn’t paying any attention or showed any sign of even noticing their prescence. my cousin kept coming closer, apologizing about the dogs, and when she pulled away the frightened dog, the other jumped at him and i guess he just vanished right there in front of her and her dogs. just the way he was- reaching at something above his head, something that wasn’t there.
    i still get freaked out when she tells the story. this is similar to others i’ve heard. they tell stories about some people and some objects that just show up out of nowhere. and the people and objects seem out of place with everything going on around them. like they’re from another dimension or time, and they’re just going about their business like nothing’s happened. it’s creepy, but cool.

    its true that people can vanish, i unknowingly went through it i share a few details I i went out side into our back yard to do some things to my vehicle i had been out there for a while when suddenly my friend kept hollering out my name,i answered him and asked him what was wrong he asked me why I had not answer him when he first called me,and he also said that he sent my 13 year old daughter outside to find me he said that she went all the way around the vehicle but did not see me.so I left then to go inside to find out why my daughter would say such a thing about me when I knew that I was right there and had not left to go any where.she told me she did not see me and I told her that I did not see her either.or heard her calling for me.I was in doubt about the whole thing until I realized that my friend had not seen me either,that was why he sent my daughter out to look for me (that is some thing unusual for him to do.he does things for him self.then my oldest son came down stairs and asked me where did I go to and I told him no where he also looked all the way around the vehicle for me and did not see me. I told him that I did not see or hear him either.when I went out side every thing seemed normal to me I continued to do what I was doing and dont under stand why we didnt hear or see each other every thing remained the same for me .the trees did not change I was still doing the same thing that I went to do.IS THERE ANY ONE OUT THERE THAT CAN HELP ME WITH THIS? I ALSO CAN SEE THROUGH CLOSED EYES..SOMETIME BEFORE SOME ONE PASSES I CAN SMELL SWEET SPICY ODOR,THAT SMELL LIKE A BLACK BERRY CIGAR ORE SOMETHING.

  99. Rose says:

    Time is the 4th dimension.

    Think of it this way:
    A straight line is the 1st dimension.
    Turn the line into a box: It’s now a 2-dimensional world.
    Turn the box into a cube: Depth is the 3rd dimension.
    Time pinpoints when you were on the “cube.” Was I in the cube, yesterday? an hour ago? a minute ago? Will I be there tomorrow?

    We perceive 4 dimensions: Length, height, depth and time.

    Mathematics/physics predicts more dimensions: 11 is a popular theory. I have heard of one theory that predicts 37, and some off-shoots of super-string theory predicts hundreds or even thousands (some of which are very tiny, and curled up within other dimensions). Fascinating stuff.

    It all does remind one of the “Little Girl Lost” episode of the Twilight Zone, doesn’t it?

    • Caretaker says:

      Rose – that is a very good explanation of the 4th dimension and you are right on, however I dont think the original author really meant “4th” dimension but rather “another” dimension

  100. NimNod ...The She Goat. says:

    Rose….Thats right on! I think all paranormal can be explained through string theory and M theory!

  101. Rose says:

    I think you are right, Caretaker. My explanation was more for the many comments who didn’t seemed to be debating the whole issue, and were seriously confused. :)

    Thanks for clarifying, though.

    • Caretaker says:

      Rose – no problem at all. A lot of that confusion was because the story was originally title Vanising into the Fourth Dimension – I changed it from “fourth” to “other” but only after a lot of people had already commented.

  102. jane says:

    oh wow thats an awesome article i mean awesome yay

  103. Beck says:

    I have heard of two, maybe three other vanishing acts, all recorded in history so to speak…

    Moses, Deuteronomy 34. Now it DOES say that he died, however only he and God know where he is buried, and only he and God were present at his death. For all that his family and friends knew, he merely vanished. This is called the “Delightful Death”, when God in fact takes your last breath and hides your body until the end of days.

    Fun fact: Moses reappeared at the Mount of Transfiguration with Jesus. He is said to be one of the “Two Witnesses” mentioned in the book of Revelation.

    Enoch, Hebrews 11:5. Enoch was brought to God without death, disappearing from the face of the Earth into the embrace of God. He was said to have “Walked with God” in life, which may be literal, as God still at that point showed himself to his people.

    Elijah, 2 Kings 2:11. Elijah was taken into the unknown in a chariot of fire, witnessed by Elisha, his successor. It is unclear if he was taken to Heaven or elsewhere.

    LOL Well I guess this might not apply the same way, but just another theory to toss out there. Maybe God decided to move them elsewhere.

  105. STS says:

    Maybe those people saw something they were not supposed to see. What that something is I am not sure. But because they saw it they were taken away.

    Example: Alien is chilling above earth in mother ship, other aliens go out in little ships, a few have some sort of malfunction and crash, as they are crashing a train is going by full of people watching them crash, Alien says “oops!!!! sorry buds!” and zap whole train gets taken away.

    this example doesnt have to be with aliens it was just the easiest thing i could think of.

    i read of a story about 2 women who were walking along the road in 18Th century and suddenly walked through bending light light a portal, they didn’t think much of it at the time but later as they walked the same road came across a man who was wearing weird clothes, they had time travelled 100 years into the future, they ran back to their house and came through the portal again again to find themselves back in their own time.
    No one believed their story but 100 years later a man walked down the same road and saw 2 women wearing clothes from the last century who ran back and disappeared.

  107. DrW says:

    Particles are the illusion of reality based in waves. Wave constellations participate objects, and objects can manifest or disappear as their wave basis changes. The paper disappears as it burns, but within a repeatable causality order. Ripples in this order can occur on rare occasion to produce time slips, ghost manifestations, disappearances, etc. All perfectly abnormal, or normal depending on how you understand it.

    • trolldoll1681 says:

      drw what you said does make sense, even tho i don’t pretend to fully understand what you said! i’m sure there is a more scientific way to say it which i would understand even less. so when you see a ghost or time seems time in a word trips up and misses a beat. you know what i’m sayin sorta.

      • DrW says:

        The material present is a pulse of waves that interact. Some of these waves are from the past, existing from each past material present. These meet with waves from the future, as computed in all possible futures in superposition, from God, as the quantum computer.

        Everything plays a role in this quantum computing, particularly humans and other animals – God is the total of all computing or thought at a quantum level.

        The possible futures are constantly being computed from the past as stored in quantum memory. The pulse of a present materializes from interference of the past and possible futures through the lens of causality. Sometimes there are local ripples so that something from the non-material comes through (communications from deceased), even from the distant past or event the future. The material is like a digital movie – the past or future can be brought into the present, or things can leave materially and go into a non-material dimension. Computation and energy can materialize on a localized basis in the material present – ghosts can appear, or monsters, etc., we can de-materialize, etc. Flying saucers may appear in this way. Teleportation is real.

        See material by David Bohm, physicist who was a friend of Einstein.

  108. Krysta says:

    Oook, so think about this one. What if we are in this said “fourth dimension” and we just didnt know it because maybe we have no recolection of the third.

    …woah…

    or any of the other dimensions, not just the fourth.

  109. DrW says:

    The material world is defined by a frequency range of waves referenced to the speed of light. Incarnate personalities focus on this range and tend to filter out alternate realities.
    Non-fake mediums can sometimes focus on non-material events. Disincarnate personalities as ghosts, etc., can sometimes focus on the material and interact with the incarnate.

    As living, we usually are not aware of the non-material. We usually block it out while simultaneously participating in it – as alive we are both dead in being rooted in quantum computing in the non-material and alive in being focused in the material. As dead we are both alive in being rooted in memories of past lives and dead in being focused in quantum computing in the non-material. Quantum computing merges the past with all potential futures to intermittently pulse out a new material present that conforms to the frequencies and filters of the material world. The succession of these frozen but changed presents gives the illusion of movement through time and space.

    On very rare occasion, something that should be in a present is not there, and is not in subsequent presents – it vanishes from the material. Now sometimes such vanished things are gone only for awhile but re-appear later (often in another place). Local (specific to a space-time position) anomalies in merging past and future waves are the cause.

  110. trolldoll1681 says:

    DrW i appreciate your explanation but unfortunately i just don’t understand all the wording. is there anyway you could simplify the explanation so we all can get some idea of what you mean?

    • DrW says:

      We live in a world of particles and our everyday understanding of the world is based on particle interactions. Trying to understand wave interactions is very difficult from a frame of reference of particle experience. We think of thought and experience as particle-based (in neurons) but is is wave based. The world is wave based.

      Think of all waves, underlying particles, as pulsing together then subsiding, in regulat beats. Each pulsation is a quantum leap by which waves mesh, and some of these interactions produce particles as a constellation of waves. Here the universe blinks on and a new material present manifests, much like a 3-D hologram that is still – frozen in space. Then this universe turns off as the waves retract and there is a void. This void lasts less than we could meaure time, or could last a billion years – wouldn’t matter. During this void the waves of the past meet with the waves of possible futures and somehow those that conform to causality laws are the ones that join to produce a new wave pulsation and a new material present. However things are in a slightly different position than in the previous present, though still frozen in space. We come back in the pulsations like everything else, and likewise disappear in the voids between the presents. We only experience a succession of frozen presents but we perceive these as continuous – as moving. The world, like the movie, is a succession of still pictures we see as moving objects.

      Now, when the waves interact to produce a new present, odd things can happen in small places even though the universe a whole is usual. A person may disappear in one frame and never reappear in subsequent frames. Flying saucers million of light years away may dissapear from one part of the universe only to reappear instantly in another part, as a result of a controlled way of energy communications to influence wave interactions in the material present pulsation. A past life personality may emerge in the present as a ghost, in controlling wave interactions. These are examples of teleportation over space or over time or both.

      When we describe quantum computing this refers to thinking as well as the control of energy to manifest a new present in the universe. Initiating a response from a thought is no different than producing a new material present in the universe except for the scope of manifestation. Mind over matter, telekinesis or psychokinesis, extends the influence of thought, from one’s response to external objects.

        DrW (In reference to your 3/4/10 comment………..

        When you wrote,…”thinking as well as the control of energy to manifest a new present in the universe except for the scope of manifestation.” Where you saying for instance that someone or something in another dimension can enter our reality if they know how to influence energy? Simply…teleportation? What do you mean by “….except for the scope of manifestation”?
        When I read your comment (which is extremely interesting), I instantly thought of Genesis, wherein God created the heavens and the earth with just a word (a thought) and his spirit (his energy?).

          I was equating thinking and the Word or Logos in quantum computing. All particles and spirits participate in the quantum computing (or God), underlying causality.

          Everything is linked to a universal quantum computing underlying and governing matter. This quantum computing, as you (Dody) pointed out, is the Logos of the bible. It existed prior to the big bang or beginning of materialization, and will exist after the universes freezes and disintegrates.

          In saying the Logos was first, then matter issued forth, the Bible asserts thought or computation underlies materialization. This is a rare instance of validity of the Bible. However, the idea of the Bible that morality is sourced in God or the Logos or universal quantum computing, where morality is embedded in ontology, is delusional. God is amoral – causality in the universe is not directed by morality or any universal moral purpose. If their is any purpose in the universe it is creative expression in continuous change and development. The purpose of life is living and its continuance. Our purpose is to learn and develop, and experience pleasure with minimal pain, based on wisdom we accrue. Morality exists purely from individual evaluation of reward and punishment contingenies, and from group agreement therein.

    There is one major, major thing that disturbs me about this article– that would be the line “All of these stories are true and can be found on the internet for further investigation.”

    Since when is the internet a great source of information for research? Let’s face it– it isn’t.

    The internet is the wonderful world of “Telephone” (the game)… where one person copies what another person said or wrote and they may or may not get the details correct. I’ve come across this in my own research– I’ve been using the internet as a source to find DATES (Month, year) for events that allegedly happened so I can attempt to look events up in newspapers from the area and time period. In most cases, the information takes a long time to track down even with approximate dates provided by the internet because someone wrote about it having happened in the wrong year. Then, when I do find that information, the details are strikingly DIFFERENT than the regurgitation of various sites.

    So… if you’re looking for fun, the internet might be a great place to read these types of stories. If you’re looking for FACTS– don’t even think of it!

    These stories may or may not be true… but if you really want to know what happened– go to the source and NOT the internet for information!

    Blue Jay, I know you posted the comment I am talking about more thatn a year ago, but it reminded me of something. What it reminded me of is a book series I read before called The Demonata by Daren Shan. Although his books are fiction, I think this is possible. One of the main charecters named Kernel Fleck sees strange patches of light that he can move with his mind or by moving his hand. These patches of light can be moved piece by piece into a larger shape which the charecters travel through into another world – The demonata universe – a world of demons. But then Kernel discovers that there are many other universes – more like billions – with creatures like us, but look nothing like us. Auras are different but are still odd patches of light. So I thought I would say this, to point out that this may be another reasonable explanation.

    one time there was this old woman that went to my church and during a field trip for the whole day, we went to a tiny island with water all around. afterwards we looked for everybody but the old lady was gone, we searched for her along with the police. We even searched the waters. but nothing…

        Sure it is – FTL or faster than the speed of light occurs with light in a cesium medium, and particles in other situations, and non-locality of entangled objects in FTL causal communications.

          If something can travel faster than light how does that break a law of physics? No laws of physics say that faster than light travel is impossible.

              the 4th dimension is actually time.. in order to vanish in time (a series of events placed in chronological order by the temporal lobe in the brain) an object or person must cease to exist in space as well as in the variables (the memories of the people). It would be more accurate to say that these people dissappeared into space rather than time.. an object may exist in time and not in space.

              To dissapear into space IS entirely possible and has been proven to work on many repeatable experiments with inanimate objects, although I am not sure if any live objects have ever been tested.

              This works by reconfiguration of the harmonics in the electromagnetic spectrum density of the object-or erm… person. when you change the vibration rate of matter, it changes the density and if the density is changed toooo much, it starts to fall out of the spectrum of what our physical/biological senses are able to percieve.

              We know objects can dissapear by electromagnetic anomolies (either natural or created by man).. I guess it stands to reason that if an in-animate object can dissapear, so can an animate living one.. since all matter is composed of the same basic building blocks.

    Excerpts from an article by NPR staff:

    “Quantum entanglement” may sound like an awful sci-fi romance flick, but it’s actually a phenomenon that physicists say may someday lead to the ability to teleport an object all the way across the galaxy instantly…… it “entangles” two different atoms so that one atom inherits the properties of another.

    “According to the quantum theory, everything vibrates,” theoretical physicist Michio Kaku tells NPR’s Guy Raz. Kaku,.”When two electrons are placed close together, they vibrate in unison. When you separate them, that’s when all the fireworks start.”

    This is where quantum entanglement u0097 sometimes described as “teleportation” u0097 begins. “An invisible umbilical cord emerges connecting these two electrons. And you can separate them by as much as a galaxy if you want. Then, if you vibrate one of them, somehow on the other end of the galaxy the other electron knows that its partner is being jiggled.”

    This process happens even faster than the speed of light, physicists say.

    It could one day lead to new types of computers, and some even think entanglement may explain things like telepathy. Scientists aren’t quite ready to beam up Scotty yet, but this is the technology that one day may lead to such a feat.

    The work is being pioneered at places like the Joint Quantum Institute at the University of Maryland. In a basement lab, scientist Christopher Monroe has successfully managed to “entangle” two atoms approximately one meter away from each other.

    But Monroe’s work is a long way from being able to teleport a living being. The problem with such an act, Kaku says, is that “you have to be destroyed in order to have your body teleported to the other side of the room. So if you’ve been destroyed and teleported, then who is that person there? They have the same memory, the same jokes, the same everything, except the original was destroyed in the process of being teleported.”

    This story was reported by NPR’s Brent Baughman.

    • Simulacrum says:

      Of course, this also raises the question of how to reconstruct the person “teleported”. More precisely, out of what materials?
      Another question is, is it even viable to use this method? After all, it is likely that incredible amounts of energy would be expended on both ends to first destroy, then rebuild the matter transported in this way. I have doubts as to whether this will work on anything other than inanimate objects, due to the uncertainty surrounding the presence of a “soul” or spiritual centre, if you will. Besides, this kind of teleportation (breaking down, then rebuilding) is absolutely useless for inanimate objects – if you have the materials and the schematics, why not just build a copy on the other end?

      • DrW says:

        Teleportation is the way to travel many light years instantaneously – through a worm hole if you wish. Making a copy of an inanimate object, at you destination, assumes you have arrived at your destination, which can only be done over millions of light years away using teleportation. So you are saying you must teleport in order to avoid teleportation.

  139. Gregory Brown says:

    Christopher Monroe mentioned that in a situation where the “original” is teleported across a room, who is that other person across the room? The original must be destroyed for this kind of transport to work. I’d like to know who does the killing, and is it a moral dilemma.

    Funny thing, I saw an episode of the “Outer Limits” when aliens far across space and time had helped humanity to build their own transporters, and part of the process on the human end failed, and the truth that only few other humans knew about was brought out into the open, raising all kinds of questions. The aliens knew this all too well, and insisted the “equation” must be balanced, otherwise known as destroying the original. It was a very provocative story. The operator on the human end had a moral dilemma about killing the original.

    I see this show as reducing people to a collection of atoms…, and nothing more. No soul or spirit is ever mentioned. I could accept teleportation of inanimate objects. Life forms are all together another matter. I hope I never live long enough to see that fiction become a reality, as if it was even possible.

    Gregory

    • Anonymous says:

      Disintegrating and reintegrating in another place at the same time is transporting (teleportation). Transportation is not killing – taking paper and converting from a solid to a gas by burning it is not killing the paper. The universe is an unfolding of killing and birthing – all things change form in living, dying, then rebirth. Morality is not embedded in the universe – God as the process of causality is immoral. We falsely attribute morality to the causality but morality is an individual evaluation, and sometimes collectively agreed on. Any person killed benefits some others somewhere – moral for the others that benefit but immoral to the victim and loved ones. Killing is moral as much as immoral over the long haul. In war, killing the enemy is moral for the side that kills and immoral for the other side. Might makes right always, and a moral principle can have might if agreed upon and enforced by the group. So is teleportation moral? It is bad for loved ones of a missing person and thus immoral for them. Since God as causality is the cause of teleportation, earthquakes, floods, disease, etc., then is God evil? Sure, half the time over the long haul. Many benefit from such acts of God, and human population control from natural disasters is necessary.

    people these stories of other dimensions,sudden disappearances,and the ‘fourth kind’ are all true! In the western world uve become athiesticised over the decades or centuries,hence only believing what the eyes see,hence when u see what u deem odd behaviour it frightens the hell out of u,come to the islamic world,and see first hand how we deal with this,no fear,nothing,the ‘fourth kind’ are the JINN,its stated in the quran,they are another being who are invinsible to us,they live in ‘another dimension’ while some live here too,they can imigrate to our dimension,cause problems,illnesses etc…. i myself have been posessed by some of them,no joke,i hear voices,real voices,its nothing,i dont get scared,they can shapeshift in the form of basically anything they want,we believe and i think science has basically agreed there r 7 dimensions,different timezones and different lives,maybe in other dimensions spiders may be bigger than us etc… its not too far fetched to believe in this,i mean people have experiences with them,all this ufo stuff its them! they shapeshifters! The elites from within the governments know this and worship them,bermuda triangle could very well be a stargate to another dimensions,many a stories of disappearances have occured from there.yes they exist,so what,dont be afraid,believe in god,pray to him,and whatever happens happens!!!

    Well I am interested in this “aura” thing you guys are talking about, I have heard it before, and I guess it could be possible but it just doesn’t make sense to me. I know things can have electromagnetic fields around them but what makes some people able to see it more than others? and wouldn’t that mean that your vision would be flooded with auras since you could get it from bacteria, insects, inanimate objects (maybe? I don’t know). And why do the colors relfect emotions, or the future in some cases? I am very open-minded about this stuff don’t get me wrong I just don’t see how this is all connected in some way.

  143. DrW says:

    Emotion is directly tied to energy, and thus to wave emanation. Emotion is basic to all human expression, including thought. Emotion most directly connects to external waves of things outside the body. A physical particle is actually a junction point of waves that participate energy into a focal point of the particle. Reality is waves not particles, though we perceive and think in terms of particles (Maya, or the facade of reality.

    Anything is possible. Some peculiar events are dreamed or hallucinated but others are like “dreams of the universe” that play out physically in a localized portion of the universe while outside the universe goes on as usual. Such events are real, however atypical.

    I believe that particles represent a constellation of waves that interact to produce a unity of wave events. Past waves, from past events , merge with future waves from future possibilities, in any instance of a present particle. Presents unfold in steps where one step replaces a prior step where causality (God) is a configuration of energy from past and future wave interactions that occur in pulses of the present. Thus, each new present replaces a past present in successive unfolding of material events. Both the past and the future possibilities play a role in causality and this is an amoral process (God destroys as well as creates, without any regard to moral consequences). Only personality calculates events in terms of a personal morality (sometimes consensually shared) – God could care less as causality produces good and bad in parity over time, just like the positive and negative polarity of the universe is maintained in parity. Although human perception and thought normally orders the world’s causality in a present produced by the past, there are time slip phenomena, well documented, whereby ghosts appear from the past and future events are perceived. These are rare, but well documented. Skeptics reject these phenomena in conformance to the strong tendency of perception to order the world in a typical fashion and reject any deviance from this restriction on reality.

  148. Phill says:

    I have read some of these examples (and more) when I was a little kid.
    There were several I remember well, such as a man and wife walking in a park in the middle of a large city and suddenly the man says he noticed yellow flowers on the ground, he looked up and the city had vanished and all he saw was green hills with yellow flowers! He felt he must have walked into a ‘doorway’ so he placed some flowers where he was to find his way back and started walking, he went over several hills and he said the landscape went on and on looking the same, He suddenly panicked as he was afraid the opening may close so he turned around following his feet print in the grass till he came to the small pile of flowers, he waked over them and suddenly everything looked normal again, he said his wife was about 20 feet away looking the other way, he called out to her and she jumped and asked where he had been as she called out to him and he didn’t answer!
    He told her what happened and they traced his tracks to where the just stopped, he walked further and the doorway has apparently closed.
    One other thing, someone mentioned seeing ‘bacterium’ looking things, this is explainable, I suffer from that too. It is caused by micro-sized ‘debris’ that is in the eye fluid…. in the medical profession they are called ‘floaters’ and this happens when some of us were still in the developing stages before birth. There is even a cure for those with a lot of floaters, they remove the eye fluid and replace it with a synthetic eye fluid.
    It only bothers me when I look at stuff like the sky, but more or less am used to it.
    Just thought I would give my experience on what you may be seeing.

  149. DrW says:

    What is the nature of God? God is causality – the process by which the universe continually unfolds in changing. God is amoral, which means God is neither good nor bad and has no regard to either good or bad. Morality is what we impose on events by our evaluation of the pain and pleasure properties of events, and the bottom line always is that might makes right.

    What is the purpose of life? The purpose of any living thing is to continue its genetic survival. We are simply carriers of our genes and all our motivations and personality processing is aimed at keeping our genes alive in ourselves and in our kin. What does this do? It continues the living process. The goal is in the process of continuance in change. Living is the purpose of life.

    Do we survive after death? We change and continue in the eternal process of change. Our personalities after death continue to draw on memory and process this. Sometimes enough energy is drawn to this processing to enable it to manifest in the physical world, but this is rare.

    Is there a heaven or hell? Human personality tends to abstract from events in inductive thinking, to make inferences from events, but in an overgeneralized way. This is thought disorder (prevalent in human personality). Universal or unconditional love is an example. Heaven is an overgeneralized abstraction from instances of pleasure in our lives while hell is abstracted from instances of pain in our lives. Heaven and hell is not a place but a state of pleasure or pain.

    We always make more of life than what is really there, while remaining ignorant of most of what is really there.

    • Caretaker says:

      “The Mary Celeste (often incorrectly referred to as Marie Celeste) was a brigantine merchant ship famous for having been discovered on 4 December, 1872 in the Atlantic Ocean unmanned and apparently abandoned, despite the fact that the weather was fine and her crew had been experienced and able seamen. The Mary Celeste was in seaworthy condition and still under sail heading towards the Strait of Gibraltar. She had been at sea for a month and had over six months’ worth of food and water on board. Her cargo was virtually untouched and the personal belongings of passengers and crew were still in place, including valuables. The crew was never seen or heard from again. Their disappearance is often cited as the greatest maritime mystery of all time….”

      But, what if there is no God? What if I don’t share your beliefs at all? Then I can refer to Him as casually as I refer to leprechauns. I wouldn’t have to fear any repercussions due to this behavior, since my lack of belief is just as valid as your claim of belief.

      Besides, these are just stories, concocted by the people of the time, not understanding how the physical world works, given to fall prey to superstition and fantasy. Don’t confuse urban legend with fact. A lot of these stories are based upon earlier works of fiction created to sell books. These stories were then later recycled with a new spin as ‘fact’ to sell newspapers and magazines. What you have here is an early sample of pulp fiction.

      These filler articles are not based in reality. Isn’t it suspicious that there are no stories more recent than 1949? People just lost interest in writing for this demographic because more and more people failed to believe them. So when these articles get dredged up, it’s important to view them from our own time, in our own understanding. Would the “alternate dimension” explanation for a disappearance be a valid claim in a court of law today? There may be some truth to these stories, but the actual happenings have been since washed away by weak-minded dreamers who would fill-in-the-blanks with nonsense rather than report responsibility.

  153. DrW says:

    Love is not an entity. It is abstracted inductively from all instances of loving acts and being loved (rewarded in being fulfilled, provided for, protected, and assisted).

    To reify an abstract concept, such as saying god is love or the devil is evil. is inductive over-generalization – which is a form of thought disorder. Human thought is full of thought disorder, particularly in religion, moral ideas, and political beliefs.

    We have a process of causality by which everything occurs in an unfolding process of materialization, in all of the universe. We also have a communicative link between all events, past, present or future. Future possibilities play a role, just like the past, in causing present events. This process of causality is not love, nor is it hate, it is an amoral god if you wish. It destroys as readily as it creates, as each is necessary for the other, and is neither good nor bad. God could care less if we kill each other or love each other. This is irrelevant and of importance only to ourselves.

    The idea the God is love and is the source of morality in the universe is delusional, and this idea is mutually exclusive with the idea that God is the source of all things that happen. You can’t have it both ways. Either god is not the cause of everything or god is not love, otherwise how could a god of love cause so much tragedy in the world.

    • Simulacrum says:

      Particularly well said. For those of you who require this put in a catchier form, I present this quote from Epicurus:

      “Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then He is not omnipotent. Is He able, but not willing? Then He is malevolent. Is He both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil? Is He neither able nor willing? Then why call Him God?”

      This refers specifically to the Christian concept of God. The quasi-scientific (and I say this because a large portion of it is not yet covered by science as practiced by us) concept of causality that DrW just mentioned is essentially a functioning combination of entropy and randomness which, to simplify, drives the continuing existence of the universe.

      This website exists to sell advertising space, and the multitude of gullible fools who actually believe in this ‘things dissappear into another dimension on a regular basis, but nothing ever happens in front of eyewitnesses or media or sane people and nothing ever ever comes back’ are only serving to boost the income the websites owners recieve from exploiting your fantasies.

      Causality is a redundant theory, Dr W, as there is no evidence of the ‘waves’ you talk about, the ‘energy’ you say is being drawn from peoples personalities after death (which makes no sense – the population of Earth is so great, and humans have been around for so long, if every person’s personality that had existed, ever, absorbed even the tiniest peice of energy from earth then there would be no energy currently in motion in the entire planet and we would be in some kind of perpetual inertia) and, even if these waves did exist, ‘ripples’ would not – they would need an event to cause these ripples, a physical object or movement of objects as dictated by even the simplest theories of Newtonian physics.

This one night i remember clear as day, i woke up to an orange glowing light in my room, i looked to see where it was coming from and my floor had openings,kinda looked like swiss cheese there would be my floor then an opening so on and so forth, when i looked into this glowing opening i could see a dessert-like setting with what looked like maybe a pyramid(could have been a mountain) i know i was young but i remember thinking i wanted to know this was real so i reached down to this opening and put my hand in it and it was warm, i was scared at this point because i didnt want to fall in so i walked very carefully around the openings to get out of my room. This is the only time in my life so far that i had this happen, i know it sounds crazy but i did happen. Any opinions??

    Read about Time slips by Jenny Randles. Dimensional leak throughs of another time-space can come into our own time-space reality and blend into a unified reality on an encapsulated time-space basis, unaware to those outside this bubble that we are in. The world goes on around us but we are cut off from it inside the dimensional leak through, without realizing we are in isolation from the larger world, while we are in the real world of an interdimensional bubble.

    Never happened to me, but cases are reported throughout history.

    The fact is that people and things do vanish at times, however rarely. No trace is found of the aircraft missing over the Bermuda triangle. Teleportation has been experimentally shown in the physics lab – subatomic particles can disappear in one place and simultaneously appear in another place over vast space. This is possible also with large molecular objects but not experimentally feasible. Read Randles’ books to see a collection of such facts.
