The Fifth Dimension
Way back in time, when I was just a small boy i remember walking outside into the back yard of the family house and looking up into the sky on a dark clear night.
the stars looked amazing [back then there was a lot less light pollution] I was taking in all the awesome beauty of it all when all of a sudden 'BANG' i fell to the floor landing on my knees, it felt like a massive electric shock went straight through my brain!
I felt bewildered and in shock, for the first time in my short life I realized how huge and gigantic the universe was and how small and insignificant I was!
Many things flashed before me [ this was a year or so after my fathers death] my own mortality, how short life was and that life was not for evermore, maybe not things a small boy should be worrying about!
A few year later i remember having an out of body experience, I'd been watching TV with my brothers and sister.
I went to the kitchen for a drink and all of a sudden i felt a massive tug upwards, for a split second i seemed to rise up to the ceiling, I remember looking down on myself standing in the kitchen before i fell back through my own body!
Once more I felt bewildered with what had happened!
Maybe the best way to describe the feeling would be to say it felt a bit like when your in a lift in a hotel and it stops after going up several floors!
But for that split second of my out of body experience it felt like I was in another dimension in a different plane looking in!
I wonder has anyone ever experienced any of the above feelings in there lives?
Gravitational Anarchy RADIO LAB PodcastA MUST LISTEN
In this podcast, we revisit some ideas from our recent episode on Falling. We begin with a story excerpted from an essay by Berton Roueché, which first appeared in the New Yorker in 1958 and was later published by Dutton in a book called "The Medical Detectives." Read for us by the actress Hope Davis, it tells the true tale of a woman named Rosemary Morton, who had a little, um, trouble with gravity. After that, we return to a segment from the Falling episode that has troubled some of our listeners: the mystery of falling cats. Neil deGrasse Tyson, astrophysicist extraordinaire and Director of the Hayden Planetarium in New York, takes us to task for using "bad data." We call on science writer David Quammen to help us fight back and, in the end, we wonder how we can ever know the mind of a fallin
