I enjoyed reading issue FT240 as I am a strong believer in time slips, De ja vu and parallel universes, for example the loch ness monster is a dinosaur from 63 million years ago but is only seen when a time slip occurs in the ness area, mothman is a creature from a parallel universe which doesnt exist in this universe normally and of course some UFOs are human craft from another (future) time. The story about the flying platforms reminded me of a famous case in Papua New Guinea in 1959, a father Gill saw a flying platform with figures standing upon it who replied to him when he waved to them. I thought the case featured in Issue 240 from Aldeburgh 1916 or 1917 was suspicious when the alledged witness wrote "Ordinary men just like us" which given it occurred before an era of aliens and little green men of the 1960s, seems rather superfluous. This leads me onto a case which happened to my mothers second husband (Bob) around 1987 when they lived in a lincolnshire village of claypole. Bob was working on his car outside their very old house on the main street on a summers day when he went inside to fetch some tools. Upon entering the house he immediately noticed it was very different. The furniture was old fashioned especially the kitchen which now contained a fire for cooking, there was no electrics instead gas lamps. He exited the house and then returned shortly afterwards only to find the house as expected with all mod cons. After some reasearch he found an old man in his nineties who lived in the house during his childhood and is reported to of confirmed bobs descriptions of the decor. Perhaps it was a hot day and his mind created an illusion based on a photograph of a house from the turn of the 19th century he may of saw in the past? or perhaps he stumbled into (and out of) a time slip?
