Bryan, Danvers, Massachusetts - 2006

I will never forget this. I'm 35, and I now live in Oregon. Several years ago I was visiting my Uncle in Danvers, Massachusetts with my brother. We were in the family room downstairs. My bother fell asleep in a recliner on the opposite side of the room and I was lying on the couch watching TV. It was about 2 AM and I had turned off the television, getting ready to crash. I looked in the direction of the recliner where my brother was sleeping and on the opposite side of the chair where my brother slept, was a bright, white person. It was like looking at a negative photograph. Its eyes were too big, it had shoulder length hair, sunken cheeks, and a tiny slit for a mouth. Its neck was too thin and it was wearing tattered, shredded clothes, a shirt ripped above the elbows, and a vest. Its arms were bone thin. Its hands were also extremely thin and its fingers were too long. Its hands and fingers were resting over my brother's head.

The second I (and I mean the second) I looked at this thing, its eyes met mine, instantly. I've never seen a stare like this. I can't describe it other than it knew what it was, it knew what I was, and it had a purpose. Very very slowly, it raised its hands from the top of my brother's head and moved them up to its chest. It started to move slowly from behind the chair. I saw that it had pants that were shredded at the ankles. But it did not have feet... no feet. It felt like 60 seconds had passed for this thing to move or rather float seven feet from the chair to the wall. It slowly passed into the wall. It never stopped looking at me. The last thing I saw was its eyes looking right into me, disappearing into the wall.

I can't describe exactly what it was that I felt. What I did not feel was fear, awe, anxiety, or shock, or anything that I would have expected. It was like being in a void or vacuum and I can't find the words to describe it other than: It was nothing. There is no way to put nothing into words. I laid there for a few seconds and rushed toward my brother. He was white as a sheet and did not look like he was breathing. Now I was freaked out. I shook my brother at his shoulder and called his name. He took an immediate deep breath like he was suffocating. He woke up and had a hard time snapping out of it. I told him what I saw. He said that he was completely awake but paralyzed from head to toe. He said that he could see everything around him all at once and saw me watching him. But his eyes were closed. He said he couldn't breathe. He said it felt like he had to fight with all his will to move or he would have been lost or dead. He said that he felt an intense pressure from the top of his head and this pressure was moving down his neck and pushing out of his chest. This is where his description sounded really strange, but I think he said that he saw many geometric shapes streaming from his chest, geometric shapes that he never saw before, and they were crashing into the ceiling. He said that it felt like he was being pushed out. When I talk to my brother about this now, he says he remembers that I woke him up, and that he was paralyzed, and that he could not breathe. But he doesn't remember what he said or what I just described. I'll remember this for the rest of my life. It was one of the most amazing things that I have ever witnessed.
