The Bridge Between Two School Camps

 

I had a very bizarre and at the time, very unsettling experience happen to me when I was 12 years old. I have decided to share this experience on YGS for two reasons really, one is that it was just totally baffling, and the second is in the hope that someone else may have experienced the same kind of thing, and therefore can share with others (and I won't feel like such a freak! Lol!)

I have NEVER mentioned this to anyone before now. Mainly because I just had no idea how to process it in my then juvenile mind.

This experience is not in the "an evil shadow person appeared by my bed at 3:00 am" type account, so apologies in advance to anyone wanting to be frightened or thrilled. I don't even know if this will be published because whilst it's not technically a "ghost" story, it does have an element of spirituality to it, and is possible linked to the NDE category. Anyway, enough rambling, here it is:

When I was 11 I attended a school camp. I don't remember where it was, or even the time of year. It was a non-eventful camp, and there was only one moment that I remember, that was incredibly mundane, but was very important to the story. It was the evening, it was dark and I was walking through the camp, alone, along a concrete path through some buildings to my cabin. Pretty exciting, right? It gets more interesting, trust me...

I then went on another school camp the following year when I was 12. Different camp, again I can't remember where it was, but it doesn't really matter to the story. It was during this camp that I found myself walking back to my cabin one evening, along a concrete path, through some buildings, alone. It was at that point that I thought to myself; "This reminds me almost exactly of that time during last years camp" or words to that effect. And it was at THAT point when BANG / SWOOSH / ZIP! (take your pick) I was suddenly back on that path at my 11 year old camp, walking to my cabin. Now this wasn't just a memory, in my mind I was COMPLETELY there; it was as if I had literally traveled back in time and was walking the path. This lasted for a couple of seconds, the I was "back" on my 12 year old self camp ground.

I knew instinctively that I hadn't physically traveled back to the previous years campsite, that's impossible, but it was if I had somehow revisited that memory in its entirety, if that makes sense. It's very hard to explain. I was TOTALLY immersed in the memory and it didn't feel like it was a memory, or I was somehow observing myself in a disconnected way, watching myself. I was actually 'there', on that path again, completely reliving that moment in all it's 3 dimensional real-ness; all my senses active.

So, naturally I was very freaked out by that. I had never experienced anything like it, nor have I since. I remember that as soon as I 'returned' I just kept walking back to my cabin (heart rate slightly elevated), and knowing that I had somehow "morphed" back to that memory. At the time I couldn't explain why, or how it happened. I was only 12 after all.

In terms of what trying to understand what I experienced, in the subsequent years, whilst reading a lot about NDE's (Near Death Experiences) one of the recurring themes was what is known as a "life review". This is where the person who has "died" is shown their entire live in a vivid three-dimensional panorama. In some cases, it's EVERYTHING, including how they affected others, positively and negatively.

This is the only explanation that I have that could explain how it was possible to experience what I did back then. It would appear that everything we do in our lives is somehow stored and we can access it when we need to. My theory is that for some reason, I was able to suddenly access the path walking, maybe because they were such similar events. I really don't know why it happened; it was such a mundane, boring moment, but I would love to hear other people's theories, opinions on it, and I would also be very interested to hear about anyone who has experienced the same thing.

Thanks for reading.

Greetings, Mack.

I should apologize that I'm only halfway through reading the comments and replies, but this idea was nagging at me, so I'm typing it now before it escapes.

I know that you have had one horrific-sounding episode of attack *similar* to sleep-paralysis, but that narrative clearly implicates your freaky roommate and his magical practices. However, there are several sleep disorders and events that can occur that are similar to the sleep-paralysis phenomenon.

Now, as your parents sent you to a summer camp, you were familiar with the sort of routines and activities that are available. Obviously, some camps are organized around very specific activities, such as kayaking trips or tennis camps, while others present a variety of activities within a clear boundary. The key element for every one of these camps is that the campers must be kept busy and enjoy the activities. In teaching, we call this "tire the little b*st*rds out" or "Physical Education." If you were returning to your cabin in the evening, then there's a good chance you may have been pretty tired; that's the mental condition necessary fof a "hypnagogic hallucination" to occur. You've done research on sleep paralysis, so I'll presume that you know what this is, and that anyone else who is curious will look it up for themselves. (Spent the day clearing dead wood from overgrown fir trees, and typing with blisters is surprisingly awkward, despite having applied lotion and adhesive bandages.) This is one potential cause as you were immersed in a memory with sensory data, but you were certain that you had *not* been transported to the other camp.

Ok, I'm now going to post this before I read your exchange with Randy about Genetic Memories. Before I do, I'll just mention that Jung considered the possibility that all human minds were able to draw from the "collective unconscious."

Best,
Biblio.

Wreck72--Genetic memory is indeed a fascinating thing and your Monarch butterfly example shows how incredible it is. I am aware of the ongoing research into this but genetic memory is not what Randy was suggesting. Genetic memory, "is a memory present at birth that exists in the absence of sensory experience, and is incorporated into the genome over long spans of time. It is based on the idea that common experience of a species become incorporated into its genetic code, not by a Lamarckian process (which is closer to what you seem to be suggesting) that encodes specific memories but a by a much vaguer tendency to encode a readiness to respond in certain ways to certain stimuli."

This "vague tendency to encode a readiness to respond in certain ways" is not the same thing as having every single memory of our lives and those of our ancestors stored on our DNA. Check out Lamarckian theory to see something closer to what came up earlier in the comments to this account. That theory has been widely discredited in the scientific community but does still have its followers.

So, I am with you on Genetic Memory. It just doesn't have any bearing on Mack's account that I can see.

Manafon1 - So I wrote this up once then didn't post it because I didn't feel it was that relative to the story but I saw that you mentioned on the other story you couldn't find any info about it so I thought I would mention Genetic Memory is a long standing theory at this point and is still researched to this day. It started based on Monarch butterfly migration patterns because they migrate the bird where groups fly back and forth from the same locations each year unlike birds though the die off each migration so generation 1 flies from point A to point B then reproduces and dies but Gen. 2 still flies back to point A and Gen. 3 back to point B. This is how research into genetic memory became a thing. The more recent theories do in fact believe that these memories can stretch back thousands of years. These theories are put forward by actual Doctors not just the internet if anyone wants to look into them just search "genetic memory".

Hello Argette, no worries at all. I'm sincerely greatful though to hear your comments.

As for my experience, I now wonder if what we experienced could have been a 'stored life memory' as Randy alluded to. In fact it was one thought my ex had expressed to me as we had always felt 'drawn' to each other despite our quite different backgrounds.

Another thought expressed here has me thinking could we have been in some way been hypnotized... Having been lulled into a 'sleep' or 'dream state' that we actually didn't wake from until morning.

It is all though something very hard to make sense of and perhaps never will have an answer for.

Hi Tweed

Thanks for the feedback, glad you enjoyed it. It certainly was an incredibly weird experience.

Your self-hypnosis with smells is very interesting and shows the potential to hold all sorts of previously irretrievable / forgotten memories within our minds, in this physical manifestation.

It makes sense to me that we should be able to re-visit, recall, or "know" all that we have done and said and how our actions have impacted. Otherwise, what's the point of us having consciousness if it's not meaningful? Nature doesn't have any thing that is unwanted or unnecessary - it's the epitome of efficiency.

I honestly believe it DOES matter what we say and do and our actions DO effect everything else. I often think we are all at once both totally insignificant specks yet utterly important and meaningful.

I agree that no, this experience definitely was not an NDE, but possibly I tapped / was enabled a glimpse into of the the workings of the apparent 3-D full-blown life-review, total immersion panorama that people have reportedly experienced during their NDE's.

Randy set my mind thinking about how memories / life-times are stored, and my theory / belief is that our bodies exist only because of spirit. The body is the husk, or shell expressing itself on this material plane, and is the physical counterpart to the spirit body.

My point is that then theoretically, the physical parts of our brains that contain memory only exist because there is a spiritual equivalent. So therefore, that would suggest that all our experiences are recorded in our spirit memory area of our spirit minds.

That's where, I believe, our NDE life-review memories are held and accessed, and that's where, possibly, I managed to access for a couple of seconds that evening on the path.

Intriguing stuff indeed... Smile

Regards

Mack

Jetson, after reading and rereading your account, I don't know what to think.

Time slip is the only explanation.

I'm totally befuddled. My experience about 30-40 minutes above Toulouse only felt like a time slip.

Thank you, Jetson, for the link! As I read through your account, I began remembering reading it before our last trip to France in 2012. I scrolled through the comments and found mine.

I'm sorry I didn't think to look your account up here, but for some reason, I didn't think you had shared it. I am sorry. My mind is on a family crisis, which is why I'm around here more often, and I'm not functioning on all cylinders.

Thank you again for providing the link.

Hi Mack, far out! Would LOVE to experience something as vivid as this!

Well, I guess this is in the same ballpark so I'll ramble on a bit. Laugh
I don't think you had a NDE, I think you might have slipped into 'there', not in the physical sense, in the virtual sense.
A few years back I started practicing self hypnosis with smell. The short of it is I 'unlocked' the ability to remember/experience scents at will and experience them as vividly as if they're really there. I cannot stress enough how real this sensation is. (!) It's hella cool. The hard part is not being shocked by the realism, as it tends to break the trance and the scent. Over time memories in all their vivid clarity come flooding back with the smells. This is also exceptionally real and hella cool if I do say so myself. Kidding
Thing is I do all this laid back in an armchair and not going about my day! Can only suspect you unwittingly induced the same process by the simple reminder of the previous camp, which is SO COOL! Some kind of perfect storm for an almighty experience.

LOVE THIS, adding it to faves! Happy

Deja vu is awesome, God I love it, but I think what happened on your camp stroll was a super memory transportation. I just made that term up by the way, but it sounds cool. Deja vu is when you can't quite place something but the other half makes sense and you don't know why. Sounds like you had deja vu's sister déjà vécu (memory/recollection) In your camp stroll the entire bit made sense to you specifically. Not some random idiot's memory, yours!
I'm a hippy at heart so I'm going to suggest the nature surrounding you played a part in influencing that moment. Being at one with yourself and all that. But mostly, I believe it came from you, which is even more impressive in my opinion. I believe we humans have but scratched the surface of our potential where consciousness and memory is concerned. All out awesome stuff.

Hi Mack,

Totally understand you... I believe it was the right circumstance at the right time that triggered the memory and "transported" you back to that moment 1 year prior. This is really na amazing topic! Smile

By no means I am trying to detract from your incredible experience, so I am sorry for the following appreciation but really have to say this:

To all the posters commenting- Extraordinary insights. They made me realise why I might be so scared of fire even though I never got burnt or had a bad experience with it.
I could never understand why, so you helped me trying to make sense of it. Thank you!

Blessings.

RANDY--I truly appreciate the perspective you bring which has been informed by the research group you are involved in. We have also had some extremely interesting and thought provoking discussions off of YGS on the topic of reincarnation that has definitely made me consider possibilities I wouldn't have earlier considered.

That being said, you don't give any evidence, besides your belief that we retain all the info of our past lives along with that of our ancestors as a sort of data bank of life lessons as to why why or how our DNA records everything. While that is intriguing, I see no reason whatsoever for the spirit, whose true home is the spirit realm, to need a physical recording device.

It is true that there are fascinating cases of, for example, people suddenly being able to play a musical instrument. The case of Derek Amato is a good one. He hit his head while jumping into a pool and received a concussion. He then, at 40, suddenly started playing the piano and soon afterwards seven other instruments. He claims he sees black and white keys in his head which direct him. He plays masterfully and now is a full time musician who records albums. His condition is called Acquired Savant Syndrome. "Many researchers believe the underlying cause of savant syndrome occurs when the right brain compensates for an injury on the left brain."

Mysterious and remarkable as Amato's case is, it is possible that there is a medical explanation. My point here is that as much as I enjoy your comments, by the very secretive nature of your research it is hard for me to take what you state as fact to the exclusion of my own experiences and all of the books I have read by learned men and woman writing on the theory of things like apparitions. There work can be analyzed, peer reviewed and debated, which then, often, opens up fresh avenues of exploration. Your group is seemingly doing fascinating, even groundbreaking stuff but with nothing the public can access it remains tantalizing but vague.

It's important for you to know that I wasn't asking, in my prior comment, if you believe all of our life info is recorded onto DNA. I know you believe this but what exactly leads you to believe it? That's also why in my last comment I referenced two men who have a bold DNA theory that can be looked up by the YGS community if they want more info. You stated that you read an article on DNA storage. I couldn't find anything beyond the work of the two guys I mentioned in my last comment. Providing these links are really helpful and important for a person to have a balanced view.

That's why I often quote from books and articles that a person can easily look up or purchase so they can do further research and reach their own conclusions. As interesting as your group sounds, it is a stretch for someone like me who is not involved in it to simply say, "I am going to throw out all my own years of reading watershed theoretical psychical research books and buy hook, line and sinker what this guy postulates". I have to stick to the path I am on and unless you can be be a bit more specific I will continue to enjoy reading your insights but will also continue my own studies, with an open mind.

Sorry for digressing Mack but I hope this does pertain in some way to your account. RANDY, if we continue this conversation let's do it on one of our accounts!

When it comes to the paranormal there are no dunces and there are no experts
There may be some people who have had more experiences or have been involved with the subject more but that's about it.
It's one of those subjects that we are just trying to learn more about.
For me the goal is truth. The truth about what happens to us after we die

And for the record
I always read your comments to stories. I think you
Treat others well, show concern, and try and help people with good advice. I'm certainly glad your in the class as we all try and learn together

Have a great day

Greetings. Long time. Been busy but very good to hear from you

The simple answer is yes. Everything is recorded and passed along. Ancestors included. I don't want to go open a debate about reincarnation but if you consider the idea you could maybe then see how the 2 ideas can go hand in hand.

Let us consider the following;
If we are truly spirit that keeps returning to earth living human lives until we reach a point of moving forward then it makes perfect sense that the info keeps getting recorded. To leave any out would be leaving out part of our learning and growing
Also. I have seen stories of people who had surgery or a brain injury and suddenly woke up speaking another language or had a foreign accent or the sudden ability to do something such as play a musical instrument. Those abilities HAD to come from somewhere. Most likely somewhere within. Somehow that data bank within each of us gets tapped into

It may have been connected to what you mentioned but about a year ago I read an article about DNA memory storage. Of course we started with magnetic tape, then went to CD, s then DVD,s. Each able to store so much more than the one before. The article stated that the scientist working on the research had concluded that the amount of data that could be stored on a single DNA Strand would be mind boggling

One last thing
If we agree that our consciousness is who we are and doesn't come from our biological brain
Then our brain is just really a receiver that helps our consciousness work with and interact with our physical bodies and the 3D world our bodies live on. Much like a TV isn't the source of a movie. Just something to receive and descramble a signal to give us information.

One last thing (Version1.1)

The hardest part for me and a lot of people I would think is when we try to understand a lot of this it's only natural to work it out in a frame
Of reference we understand as living people.
That simply won't work but it's all we can do
For now. The spirit world, our TRUE HOME works on a completely different set of rules which for the most part, we as humans simply cannot comprehend. At least for me anyway
I think that Quantum Therory may hold some answers as to how some things could work
But not all

One Last Thing (Version 1.2)
Mack
If you consider how our minds can go into a type of self hypnosis at times. Such as when we drive the same route to work each morning
We get there safely because a autopilot of sorts kicks in but we don't always remember each stop light, other cars, pedestrians etc
It could have been something like this that allowed your mind to relax enough and let you re experience the first camp because you weren't really remembering it with your normal brain memory but re experiencing it with your true consciousness
Also Mack thank you for sharing your experience which has now opened a thread for people to share some real learning ideas
As you showed in this story. It doesn't always have to be a ghost story that we can learn from
I'm of the mindset that MOST paranormal experiences shouldn't be scary. Most of the interactions stem from contacts with loved ones who would never hurt or scare us in life and they wouldn't do it afterwards. After all
They are just the people we knew and loved without the worn out body they had at one time
Plus I can only handle so many
Red Eyed, 3 scratches, growling demonic entities.

Thanks for the podium for a bit

Argette and Randy--I always enjoy the ideas that present themselves through the comments here on YGS. Randy, I always look forward to the unique perspective you share from the research you are involved in. I wanted to know if the information you have gleaned from your research suggests that DNA records our life experiences? As you put it, "Everything we experience while alive is recorded correctly on our DNA."

There is a recent theory postulated by neurologist Michael Meaney and biologist and geneticist Moshe Szyf that suggests DNA can indeed pass on generalized aspects of our personalities. For instance, as the just mentioned guys suggest, "According to new insights of behavioral epigenetics, traumatic experiences in our past, or in our recent ancestors past, leave molecular scars adhering to our DNA. Jews whose great-grandparents were chased from their Russian shtetls; Chinese whose grandparents lived through the ravages of the Cultural Revolution; young immigrants from Africa whose parents survived massacres; adults who grew up with alcoholic or abusive parents--all carry more with them than just memories.

They become a part of us, a molecular residue holding fast to our genetic scaffolding. The DNA remains the same, but psychological and behavioral tendencies are inherited. You might have inherited not just your grandmothers knobby knees but, also her predisposition toward depression caused by the neglect she suffered as a newborn."

The above theory is fascinating and highly controversial stuff, but even the two guys who postulate this idea are given the cold shoulder by the scientific community. Not that that's anything new to parapsychologists. However, to state it clearly, my question is where do you get the idea that our complete lives are somehow recorded onto our DNA?

I believe the soul, that intangible, eternal thing, could do that but human DNA seems to be such a flesh and blood, mortal reality. I always enjoy throwing ideas into the YGS cauldron and this is in no way meant to be confrontational--merely grist for the YGS mill.

I have no answers for this one. It doesn't seem to be a 'flashback' (which generally has some type of trigger, sometimes very mundane), nor a case of déjà vu. However, Randy may be on to something with the DNA theory.

Hi Jetson

I never believed in physical time-travel, and still don't but I now believe "time" exists in other dimensions which are still not fully understood (possibly never will be)

I read your experience and I found it fascinating, and not the first type of that kind of experience that I have read about.

After my experience, I have a much more open (and to be honest, baffled) mind about where our consciousness resides and what our perceived "reality" actually is.

However, had there been someone else with me at that time, and we both were "transported" to that first camp path, that would would be a WHOLE other thing. I wouldn't even know where to start with a shared consciousness time slip / travel experience. I think my brain would have literally exploded.

In terms of any feeling of foreboding, dread or heaviness, no there was nothing like that. It truly was an incredibly mundane moment, so ordinary. From memory I wasn't tense, afraid, joyous, or bored. The surrounds were normal; I was just walking to my cabin.

I didn't feel trapped as the event was literally only a couple of seconds. And because my conscious mind was completely immersed in the experience, I was simply just suddenly walking on another path. I wasn't even really aware that I had "left" the 12 year old path, until I had "popped" back onto it.

I guess a way of describing it in a way that people can elate to would be how real our dreams appear to be, until you wake up. Our dreams are 100% actually happening when we are having them; it's reality until you awaken and then you realize "oh that was only a dream". The return to the first path felt entirely real, until I returned to the actual path then I realised I had just "morphed" off somewhere in my mind. And no, I wasn't sleepwalking in case anyone is now wondering... Laugh

Hi Beautinside

Thanks for your kind and positive feedback. Yes, I agree it was absolutely the very close similarities between the two experiences, not spaced too far apart, that appeared to have triggered the event.

I should add too, in order to eliminate causes; I wasn't yearning to be back at that first camp, nor was I unhappy at that second camp. Something just clicked together, "pinged" and off "I" went!

Hi Melda

I agree that it wasn't deja vu. Deja vu is something I have experienced two or three times and that felt like, for me, what ever I was doing at that point; had already happened before. During my deja vu experiences I was still conscious of where I was and what I was doing, and my consciousness wasn't transported into another point in time and space.

I've heard theories that deja vu is simply when all the sensory information coming into your brain is slightly delayed, so you are experiencing a time and place, but because there's a "lag" on the sensory input data, it feels like you've already experienced it. Not 100% sure on the mechanics of how that works but I like it as an explanation.

I'm not sure on what a "time slip" is, I'm not even sure what "time" is, but for all intents and purposes, I guess I traveled "back" in "time" but that place I traveled to was somehow stored in my mind (which, by the way is starting to ache trying to understand this Laugh )

Cheers

Hi Randy

I hadn't considered the DNA theory as how and where everything is recorded, thanks. Maybe I somehow tapped into that storage bank.

I think you're on to something there in terms of a shift in consciousness. It's hard to explain what it was like other than; as far as I was concerned, I had literally traveled back in time and was 100% walking on that path again. I was THERE, it felt completely and utterly as real as the walk my 12 year old self had just been taking a few seconds before.

The "flashback", for want of a better word, didn't feel like a memory, a dream or even deja vu. It didn't even feel like a vivid recollection. In my mind, I was ACTUALLY entirely, consciously and physically, back on the path.

It felt SO real, that if I hadn't "returned" to 12 year old self, I could have carried on walking the 11 year old self path quite happily, such was the totality of the shift.

Cheers

Hi Argette

It was evening on both instances, and both events were extremely similar, I believe that had a LOT to do with why it happened. I was able to "slip" back into that first memory easily. As to 'how' it happened, well that's baffling.

Hello Mack,

Thanks very much for sharing your story. It really intrigued me as I experienced something very strange many years ago in France which could best be described as a 'time slip'. Reading your account, I wanted to ask you, in addition to being 'freaked out' were you overcome in any way by a sense of dread or heaviness while this occured to you?

And, did you have any sensation as if you were 'trapped' and might not be able to leave what you were experiencing.

Thanks again!
