    I lost my damned glasses. I keep them in maybe two places, mostly one. Not far apart. Monday I got home at about 3:30 in the afternoon, , took out my contacts .... and couldn't find my glasses. I turned the house inside out, so did my wife. Been driving me nuts.

    There are two small cabinets and a table behind me here at Command Central where I sit at my desk.
    I had the top of the two drawer file cabinet EMPTY. Yes, there is normally stuff on there - but today was Verizon Fios installation day. I cleared all this away this morning BEFORE the tech showed up.

    After Verizon left I fiddled around tidying up cables,putting things back together and THERE THEY WERE upload_2020-6-10_16-56-1.png

    Jesus Christ on a crutch, I'm not kidding !!!!!! We both looked, and looked, and looked through here and they were NOT just sitting there. To be 100% honest, I put them back down, took that pic, then picked them up. I couldn't believe it and that pic was to show my wife. We're both a little flummoxed - she's not interested in paranormal anything and doesn't know what to think. Neither do I. all I can say is they were dusty and maybe had been dropped on their lenses. I just blew the dust off an am wearing them now.

    So how about them apples?

    LOL, it's a case of that 'getting old' again PF. :p ...No seriously, things like this has been happening to me [and everyone else] for as long as I can remember. Darn frustratingly strange occurrence it is too!
    … But reading your experience that made you riled enough to actually share on here made me smile, and recall 'the Professor' devoting a whole blog to just such a spectacle-anomaly as this, that also infuriated him enough [great and wise man that he is] to take to his keyboard and declare it the work of some kind of ethereal cosmic trickster. .. And he seemed to mean it too! :laugh8:
    … I don't know if you are familiar with 'the great sage of anomalistic knowledge' … Michael Swords … but I think that you might find his long running and unbeatably brilliant Blog-site interesting if not. … The Big Study: 2009

    Cheers Buddy.

    I've had some real doozies of UFO encounters only to figure out that they weren't what they appeared to be. Grew up in a 'haunted house' that really wasn't haunted but was the cause for recurring nightmares that I was later able to eliminate by carefully researching that old house and getting to know the purported ghost. I love stuff like that and always like to listen to what someone has to say - what do you do when someone perfectly credible says something that's absolutely incredible?

    Here's the thing - something very minor yet totally inexplicable just happened directly to me in a very personal way and my wife and had a good laugh over it - but we aren't really laughing all that hard. Yeah, yeah, getting older and all that. It's like hearing a UFO report or Bigfoot sighting and immediately asking 'what were you drinking?'

    No, this was just damned peculiar. I always leave my glasses in one spot specifically so they don't get lost. It's just my wife and I in a relatively small house and I can safely say she isn't playing tricks. True I could have just misplaced them but I thoroughly searched the area around and under my desk more than once with a flashlight. I had all of the furniture moved out of the way. I had everything off of that file cabinet - everything! I wiped the dust off of it with a rag, disconnected and wiped down the phone and power strip before putting them back. I moved the file cabinet around several times. There was absolutely nothing on it whatsoever. There are shelves nearby and yes, I suppose they could've somehow dropped off of one of them - but I had already thought of that and had been through ALL of them multiple times. My wife too. The area just isn't that big.

    Out of the blue as I was standing there dressing in wires yesterday I looked down and saw exactly what you see in the picture. And out of complete honesty it's staged - I grabbed my very dusty glasses and showed them to my wife who couldn't believe it - she'd been through it all too. I put them there to show her how I found them and took that pic.

    If they had fallen from a shelf it would seem like that I would have heard them hit but no, I had just put the stuff back on the cabinet and there they were.

    So, how does something vanish and then pop back into existence silently virtually under my nose? What the hell just happened?

    The skeptic in me is quite disturbed by this. Minor event but one I can unequivocally say is a true occurrence.

    Hi PF, ….
    … the simple truth is that nobody really knows mate. … and if forced to hazard a wildly speculative and uninformed explanation, then I would say that " I would postulate that the spectacles never really vanished and were always there , but what ever causes this 'mind-anomaly' wouldn't let you process the fact".
    I personally of course have experienced DOP/JOTT just like everyone else, but unlike you am not really willing to spend much thought-time in actually analysing the possibilities of this so-called phenomena being something more than a mind malfunction … caused by the mischievous sprite that is present within all of our minds … 'yeah that sprite!' .. the one that causes me to all of a sudden do or say something that is so spontaneous and so far out of character from my own perception of what It was previously capable of me to do!
    ...Well, that's my can't-really-be-bothered-to-delve-deeper answer. lol … but here are a few links to some people that can be bothered...

    Thanks for the links. I had done a little googling myself and didn't know there were terms for it. Like a lot of other weird things more anecdotes only add up to more anecdotes. When it happens to someone else, someone you don't know the logical part of me says the same thing you do - blip, mind malfunction, s**t happens. The lost object was always there and you failed to see it. Had there been a camera it probably would've caught me putting my glasses in a weird place.

    But it did happen to me, and my wife. This wasn't a blip or mistake, it really happened as described. I'm not sure that I conveyed how irritated I was to lose something I need and use every day and how thoroughly we had both searched for them. She isn't into any of this stuff and is completely baffled by it, same as me.

    From the first link:

    …..inexplicable happenings that are brushed aside as false perceptions, failures of observation, mistaken memories, or just things that could not happen and therefore did not happen (and are best forgotten). Many such incidents do indeed merit that disposal. But some, on fair appraisal, appear to have indisputable reality and significant implications for our concepts of environmental stability and the relationship of mind to matter

    Can't say I am looking for anything - acceptance, closure, explanation. I suppose I posted it here for acknowledgement and because this is very much the stuff we talk about. Reading more on it just means more anecdotes and wild speculation; I have no idea what the f**k that was. Faeries, Aliens, Reality Shift, the CIA activating me, who knows. Thing is, it really happened and I know it wasn't just absentmindedness. Something like 'you only need one white crow to prove not all crows are black.' Well, there was my white crow. It sort of shook my consensus reality - something very small and insignificant that absolutely couldn't have happened but did.

    Very interesting event indeed, is there any history of paranormal activity in the house?...I used to live in a 3 bedroom house a few years ago that had all sorts of activity, however there was one incident I cannot explain...I had roomies living with me in the house one year and one afternoon on a Saturday I was alone in the house with my dog, a jack russell...He was in the living room and chewing on Jennifer's shoe, one of my roomies, so I took the shoes from the living room away from the dog and place of them in her bedroom at the end of the hallway and closed the door...Turning around and walking back into the living room I couldn't believe what I saw, those shoes sitting right there on the floor near where they were before...WTF...I quickly go back to the bedroom and check, nope, no shoes were in there, so how the frak did this happen?...I took the shoes once again and put them in her bedroom and closed the door, this time they remained in there...Never did figure that one out, but like i said we had many other activities occur in that house...

    Nothing paranormal in that house to date and I’ve been there since ‘97.

    Yesterday a small fitting that I had been looking for showed up on my work bench. That’s just a simple oooos.

    The thing with my glasses, that’s no ooops. Really got my attention. Suddenly I feel like maybe someone is paying attention. Freaky

    Couldn't resist, sorry. lol

    You know, it has been said that poltergeist are attracted to negative energy. You were having a difficult time and pretty much hating the world for a bit last week, I think it was last week. Maybe one latched onto you. You may have even picked it up from your job? xxxx2

    The skeptic in me has been staring at that corner of my den wondering what the hell happened. I was thinking maybe they fell off a shelf. Why I would put them there in the first place is another question. Assuming I did there isn't any real spot to put them that they would have wound up where they did if they fell, plus I was standing next to the cabinet when they showed up and I would've heard them fall. To boot, the Verizon tech had been in there maybe an hour earlier and had been looking at and commenting on the tchotchke I've collected, so I took a pretty good look at that area immediately prior to their reappearance. And I had searched though it all, as did my wife, several times before.

    No, this is damned peculiar and as insignificant as it is what it implies is much more.

    Poltergeist? Frank and Louie our two stinkin' (well not really) tomcats are the only noisy manifestations around here. True, I've been bitching about my job but there's a whole list of things going on right now that I never comment on that would probably make for better fodder for a 'attracted to negativity' entity.

    Dunno. I got to see something that gave me pause and while I'm not making a great deal of hay of it - because you can't really - I'm in no particular hurry to just blow it off and say 's**t happens.'

    the nature of reality is odd when you really start looking at it.
    when looking into the observer effect in physics you might find out that shaman have been using this to alter reality for a long time.
    the fact this is possible shows us that most people assume reality is something it is not.
    the work of shaman may be under dispute, but the observer effect in physics is not. (and it is basically the same thing anyway)

    I`ve had paranormal stuff happen in my house before, mostly ghost only a bit of poltergeist once, a cup flew of a shelf when i started to watch a bit about wives of the generals of concentration camps making lampshades out of skins of the holocaust victims, i apoligized and turned it off, its been good since. but a pair of swimming goggles on a bookcase come up missing, and we did the same , we looked all over tearing up the house, never found them till winter time, on the bookcase like they were there the whole time.

    OK. Nothing to say here except it happened again. This morning. Same exact spot.

    Last time it was my eyeglasses and that really surprised me because I am extremely careful with them and have never lost a pair in my adult life. When they went missing and popped up mysteriously two days later that definitely got my attention.

    Today there were several items on that little crappy file cabinet top. I had just plugged in one bluetooth speaker and stepped out for one minute to go get another charger. All occupants of the house accounted for. Came back in and found this goddamned cable drooped right over top of the things I had just been handling.
    upload_2020-11-13_18-11-50.png

    This picture is from a few minutes later after I yelled to Mrs.Pigfarmer and then jabbered strangely at her for a minute.
    Nevermind Louie. My shadow has spots and he follows me around the house constantly. He watched me plug in one gadget and followed me into the other room when I left to go out and get the second charger. The room didn't have anybody or any pets in it when this happened, period. I had just been noodling around with the stuff right on that cabinet top and know for a fact that this stupid cable wasn't there. Sixty seconds later it was. Yes, it probably is mine but where it came from is anybody's guess. If I thought I needed one of those I'd be rooting around up in the attic in boxes or crap I have up there.

    So I say put up or shut up. I've mentioned to other members that there are a lot of inexpensive cameras out there that have amazing capabilities. This is a $40 Wyze 1080p WiFi Indoor Camera.
    upload_2020-11-13_18-19-1.png

    I have removed that mysterious cable wrapped around the bluetooth speaker and shoved it in a drawer. You don't have thumbs you don't get that cable. It works in the dark, records and I can view motion events on my phone. I haven't really figured it all out yet but it's on duty doing its job. So I put up and I don't want to shut up about this.

    I am dead serious about this. Not making it up for a joke, I'm not simply mistaken, this is real. Very minor, very mundane but there's that old saw about you only need one white crow to prove not all crows are black. This seems apropos of absolutely nothing. If there's a message it's not making it to me.

    John B Alexander talked about a couple of incidents exactly like these in Reality Denied. To my ear they sounded as mundane and petty as this does. But the physical appearance of an object that can't be explained is one big goddamned mystery to me. Bigfoot stepping through a portal, yeah we'll talk about that. This makes me think that maybe extraordinary things happen right in front of us all the time and we absolutely fail to recognize them for what they are.

    One mystery solved. The cable I found belongs to the charger on the cabinet top
    upload_2020-11-13_19-19-21.png

    So it had to have been nearby because I charged up some batteries with it. But you can see the dust on it. Been several weeks since it's been used and the verdammit cable certainly wasn't on top of those two speakers I had just put there for charging.

    I am loving this. Makes me feel not so alone because this/that kind of shit happens to me all the time.

    I used to feel the way you are right now. Now, I ignore it. For example, a bag just flew across the kitchen and then it sounded like some kind of pick or hook was getting stuck in the living room carpet all the way around the room. Like when a cat sharpens it's claws on the carpet.

    Don't even want to start listing the things I have lost and found like you have recently. I'd be here all night.

    Can't wait to see the video recordings you get. :D Is it the same principle as the doorbell cameras I have been seeing a lot of on youtube?
