Shifting Campus Flooring

While a college student at the Belton, Texas University of Mary Hardin-Baylor, Jean had a brief Forward to the Future TWIDDER.  (See

Roughly 10 years ago,  Jean was attending the Christian University of Mary Hardin-Baylor.  As she stood in the hallway [of one campus building], a light over her suddenly went out. It was then she realized she was standing on tile flooring rather than carpet. Screen shot 2014-06-24 at 6.51.10 AM

“When did we get tile?” she asked someone. They seemed incredulous that she didn’t recall the carpet recently being torn up and tile laid down. At the time of this conversation, Jean also noticed a male student talking to himself. She found that odd. She then went downstairs.

A while later she came back upstairs — and was stunned to find the hallway again carpeted and the light that had gone out was back on. She never told anyone this experience until years later.

[The carpeting was later ripped up and tile laid.  The campus building still sports tile.] Cell phones are common nowadays, which could explain the male student “talking to himself.” It definitely seems to have been a brief time slip into the future.

We live in a wondrous universe, and I love learning about it. Spacetime slips are one facet of existence that fascinate me. As a retired teacher I enjoy researching this topic and sharing the information I garner.
