Stephen Wagner, host of the weekly newsletter, Paranormal Phenomena, recently reported an experience that involves lost time. Stuart’s spacetime slip would be catalogued as Fast Forward. (See original posting at http://paranormal.about.com/b/2013/03/25/reader-report-elevator-time-warp.htm?nl=1.)
“It was the summer of 2009, and I went to Edinburgh to get a present for my girlfriend (who doesn’t believe this story). I entered the clothing shop and went to the elevator to get to the women’s clothing section. When I was in the elevator, I was listening to my iPod and not really paying attention to the time, but it was about 2 in the afternoon.
“When I got to the women’s clothing section on the third floor, I left the elevator and a shop worker told me the shop would be closing soon. I thought this weird as it was only about lunchtime, but as I looked outside the shop windows it was nighttime. The song on my iPod hadn’t even finished. When I got home, my girlfriend was annoyed because I missed dinner. I tried to explain what happened, but she just called me an idiot and didn’t believe me. It was a strange experience and I still wonder what happened in that elevator… and where the time went.”
