Scary Paranormal Encounters That Can’t Be Explained Rationally By Those Who Escaped Them

What is something scary that has happened to you that you cannot explain rationally? Some people might assume that their ability to sense, or have a hunch, or “feeling” about a certain situation that ends up being right is simply their intuition or a coincidence. However, when people experience extreme negative emotions and then someone they love dies unexpectedly, are they really still supposed to believe that it’s just a coincidence?

There is a fine line between “odd timing” and the paranormal. There are some instances, where the paranormal can’t be explained rationally anymore. The following stories were shared by real people on Reddit, and they’re quite chilling.

“I live in a condominium and we own two apartments on the 7th and 8th floor. One night, we ran out of ice cream upstairs and my mom told me to go get some from the downstairs freezer, so I took the keys to the 7th floor’s apartment and since it was dinner time, no one was there. I walked into the pitch dark and realized that someone was sitting on the sofa so I flipped the switch to see my dad just sitting there.

It was kinda weird, but I just went to get the ice cream and asked if he had a key to lock up. No answer. I shrugged, went back upstairs and my dad was sitting there eating dinner. I freaked out and asked how the heck did he get up here so fast and everyone told me that he’s been here all this time…” – ZayYarHtun

Could it be possible that the continuum between time and space overlapped for a moment?
