First of all I'd like to recommend a book by Stan Gooch: "The


This is a wonderful book for those who are searching for an
answer to a "mystery so impenetrable that it eludes vocabulary
itself, our very sense of the assumed relationship of event to

I found that quote and your other flamboyance a little over the
top. What of those who don't believe in the paranormal, or
ghosts, little fairies or elaborate reading of the future and
think it's all just BS?

There is dejvu, of course, which I find self validating. Is
that an "experience anomaly"?

Stan Gooch writes that folks were waiting for a lecturer on the
paranormal to show up. He was very late so they asked the "I
Ching" for the possible reasons for his tardiness.

It gave them a reading: "the mule is stubborn, the mule will not
go". A short time later the lecturer burst through the door:
"That damned mule of a motor bike let me down". (Stan Gooch) Is
that an experience anomaly?

Possible spontaneous combustion: "Thomas' entire body was
incinerated, leaving only his skull and a portion of each leg
below the knee. The feet and legs were clothed in socks and
trouser legs. The fire had also destroyed half of the chair in
which he had been sitting and melted the control knobs on a TV
set some yards away.

The victim's spectacles were sitting neatly folded in the grate
of his open fire, within arm's reach of the position of the
chair. The victim's slippers were on the carpet just beyond his
unburned feet, suggesting that Thomas had eased his slippers off
and settled back to watch television before being burned.
(Thomas was farsighted.")

And finally this underreported sighting:

"The incident began as Francovich was walking two large "attack-
trained" dogs on leashes through a deserted grove of dying,
leafless lime trees in southern Florida. She heard a loud noise,
as if someone were cutting down a tree with an ax. Turning
toward the noise, she says, she saw a humanoid being standing by
a tree. The being had "grayish pink" skin, non-porous and
"almost plastic" looking. She estimates the being stood four
feet nine inches tall. It was wearing snug-fitting, metallic-
looking clothing that clearly showed the shaped of its body.

"The most alarming thing that caught my attention immediately
was the head," Francovich said. The upper part of the skull was
disproportionately wide, the eyes were huge, black and almond-
shaped, with no whites or pupils visible. It had "two tiny
nostrils where we would think of a nose being, and the lips were
very small and not well-defined at all, just a tiny slit in the
face. Its ears seemed to be dropped down a little bit and were
very much smaller than ours, pressed flat against the head,"
Francovich said."


Is this an "Experience Anomaly?
