The phenomenon of ET contact is both vast and complex, and can lead to many different types of experiences. While many of the aspects of contact seem to be repeated across many different cases, occasionally someone can experience something either extremely rare or even completely unique. When such experiences occur it is often people’s tendency to ignore them, or jump to conclusions and assume that the individual involved is fabricating their experiences. But just because these experiences are unusual does not mean that they haven’t taken place. Gavin has had lots of very interesting experiences over many years, many of which have also involved other witnesses. This report covers some of these incidents in detail.
Gavin’s unusual experiences began when he was only 3 years old. He remembers numerous occasions at night where he would see something very strange in his bedroom. After reading him a bedtime story, his mum would leave the room and nearly close the door. The landing light would be left on, but there would be very little light in his room. He’d then sometimes see what appeared to be sparkling dust floating slowly around him in the air. The dust appeared in large quantities, and Gavin is sure that it was not just caused by the landing light reflecting off dust particles in the room. He was able to reach out with both hands, take handfuls and examine the sparkling dust. When he opened his hands it floated back to the particles in the circle and continued revolving around him.
For an unknown reason, Gavin felt that this was not something he should talk about with his family, so he never mentioned it to them. These experiences continued for at least a year, possibly longer, but he cannot remember exactly when they stopped. He was not frightened by the dust; he used to find it fascinating and was happy when it appeared.
I have not yet come across any other cases where the same thing has been reported, so at present there is no further information available on what this sparkling dust could have been.
Soon after his experiences with the dust, Gavin began to feel frightened in his room at night. He’d feel that there was a presence there in the room with him. It is unknown whether these feelings were linked with the dust or not.
On a number of occasions he’d awake to find that he couldn’t move or shout out. He’d try to fight this and after a short while would be able to start moving again and his voice would return. On other occasions when he’d just fallen asleep, he’d be woken by a loud and intense buzzing sound, which seemed to penetrate his whole body. These experiences with the sound continued into his 30’s, but he still regularly gets the feeling of a presence in the room at night. These experiences sound like they may have been down to what is commonly termed “sleep paralysis”, although they are also known aspects of the ET contact phenomenon.
Changing Roads Dream
Another thing Gavin remembers from his childhood is that he used to have a recurring nightmare where he’d be walking home from school when suddenly the roads would change. They looked the same but the connecting roads at the junctions were different. He’d become lost and unable to find his way home, which was terrifying.
This could of course have been nothing more than a dream, but as you will see it has bizarre links with some of his later experiences which suggest otherwise.
As you have already heard, Gavin quite regularly sensed some kind of presence in his bedroom during the night. In his teenage years on a number of occasions and always in the evening while upstairs in his bedroom, he’d sense the arrival of a negative presence / entity on the landing. It was always in exactly the same place – between his bedroom and the staircase. Whether it wanted something or whether it was harmful Gavin wasn’t sure, but it un-nerved him and made him go cold, so much so that he’d have to go downstairs to his parents.
As he walked downstairs, he always gripped the banister tightly, feeling that whatever was there might push him down the stairs. He cannot explain why he had these feelings, as he never saw anything on the landing. He never told his parents, as he thought they would not believe him.
Pressure On The Legs
In 1994 Gavin was travelling through Eastern Europe. He’d arrived in Poland in the city of Poznan, close to the German border, and checked into a hotel. During the night he was woken by something pressing down on his lower legs. He found it unusual that he’d been sleeping on his back, as normally he slept on his side or stomach. Thinking that someone had entered the room he lay still keeping his eyes closed wondering what to do. The pressure slowly moved up his legs towards his thighs. Gavin opened his eyes slightly to take a look, and saw an unusual form / entity of some kind on the bed. He shouted out “No!” The form shot up into the air and then disappeared. Gavin cannot describe exactly what it looked like – just a shape. He turned on the light and lay awake for a while.
In the morning when he awoke, Gavin saw what he describes as small, puffy white clouds floating just below the ceiling. These remained a while before fading away. Gavin feels sure he was completely awake when viewing these.
Again it should be noted that some of what Gavin has described here is often reported during sleep paralysis experiences. However this does not necessarily explain what was seen, and there may well be another explanation.
The “small clouds” which Gavin reported seeing the following morning are very unusual, and do not sound like they were related to what happened during the night. Even more so because Gavin informed me that this was not the first time he had seen these, there had been other occasions in his life where he had seen similar things, always just below the ceiling. It does not sound like this was down to condensation in the room, and there is no definite explanation for what was seen. I have not heard anyone else report the same thing to me, at least so far.
We will next look at a number of experiences Gavin has had in his adult years. These experiences have seemed to involve people who act in abnormal ways, unexplained shifts in time, and places that seem somehow strange or different. These incidents are far from typical, and it is clear that Gavin is not a contactee in the usual sense of the word. However, as you will see, there are aspects which may suggest an extra-terrestrial connection.
Man On The Street
In 1986 when Gavin was 21 years old, he left home, moved to Guildford and took a job at Next clothing store. Soon after starting work, a man began appearing outside the shop almost every day. His eyes were astute, he was possibly in his thirties and possibly homeless, and would at times watch Gavin or dance around making fun of particular passersby. Work colleagues said that the man was crazy and began speculating that his appearance was related to Gavin starting work in the shop. Gavin denied it because the man was strange, but knew his colleagues were right. He felt scared. On occasions when there were no customers and Gavin’s colleagues were in the stockroom, the man would come into the shop. “Why are you doing this job, it’s not really you,” he’d ask. Gavin began to observe the man, noticing that when he was making fun of passersby, his choice was not indiscriminate, he choose people who seemed arrogant. As soon Gavin’s colleagues returned, the man would leave the shop.
One evening around midnight while he was on his way home from visiting a friend, Gavin saw the man on the street. The man approached him and began to speak to him. It was immediately obvious to Gavin that the man somehow knew everything which was on his mind at the time. It was like the man was reading his mind. He spoke of Gavin’s concerns for his future. Gavin was overwhelmed by what the man was saying and just stood there listening for about five minutes.
In the end he just said ok and took his leave, he did not ask the man any questions or try to establish how he knew these things about him. This was mostly due to the fact that he didn’t want to be seen speaking with this unusual man, but he was also quite frightened. The situation was really bizarre, and Gavin got the sense that this man was not a normal human being. Ever since he has wondered whether the man could have even been an ET in human form.
Missing Journey Time
In 1987 Gavin was living in London. One evening after work he went out to Tottenham to meet up with some friends who had travelled down from Hull. They’d only spent a short amount of time in the bar, when Gavin suddenly started to feel extremely tired. This was not something which would normally happen to him, and he began to wonder if someone had put something in his drink. He decided to leave his friends and head for home. As he walked along the road he began to feel frightened, but did not really know why. He reached Tottenham Hale underground station and can remember standing on the platform, seeing a train arrive (destination Brixton) but cannot remember boarding. The journey from Tottenham to Brixton is 16 stops with a change at Stockwell.
The next thing Gavin knew, a woman was gently shaking him. In a daze, he opened his eyes and saw what he thinks was Victoria Underground Station. The woman asked where he was going, to which Gavin replied, “Brixton” Gavin realised that this was incorrect, but could not remember where he was travelling to. He informed the woman.
After this Gavin again experienced a missing period of time. The next thing he was aware of, he was waking up at Balham station. He was confused. Once again he had no memory of the journey or changing lines at Stockwell. To this day he has no idea of what had taken place. He has never experienced the same thing again.

While this is an odd experience, I feel it is unlikely to have anything to do with contact. Contactees regularly report having missing periods of time, which often later on turn out to be abduction experiences which have somehow been blocked out from their mind. However it is extremely unlikely that anything like that took place here due to the fact that Gavin was in a very public location at the time, with other people around at all stages. The extreme tiredness Gavin felt could well have been what he suspected – perhaps someone did spike his drink at the bar for an unknown reason. Or perhaps there was a medical explanation which was causing him to black out. It is certainly possible that Gavin wandered off the first train and onto one heading for Balham by himself in a dazed state of mind. There is also the possibility that the lady he remembers speaking with helped him get on the right train. We are unlikely to ever know for sure.
On another occasion while he lived in London, Gavin was on his way to work. He got off at Oxford Circus and began walking along Oxford Street towards Tottenham Court Road. A few minutes later he looked up and suddenly found he was in different surroundings to where he should have been. He then realised he was walking in completely the opposite direction. He thought to himself “Oh my God, how did I do this?” He turned back around and decided to cut through some side streets to get back to where he should be.
Gavin walked along thinking about what had happened. He looked ahead and suddenly realised the streets looked completely different to how they should look, even though he had walked down them many times before. He wasn’t seeing what he should be seeing. He stopped and looked back. Behind him everything looked normal how he remembered it. But ahead of him everything seemed completely different. He thought to himself “Shit! What am I going to do?” He kept walking onwards, trying to remain calm. This lasted a while. Then suddenly there was some kind of shift and everything looked normal again as it should. He continued his journey and finally reached his workplace.
In 1989 Gavin was now living in Munich, Germany. On one of his return trips to England he was in Paris and in a rush to reach the ferry from Calais. He had to get to Gare Du Nord so got onto a metro, but as he was in such a rush he did not really check whether the destination was correct. There was a man sitting to his right and Gavin decided to check with him whether the metro was headed in the right direction. As he turned and looked at the man, he suddenly got a strange feeling that the man had known for thousands of years that this moment in time would come. The man confirmed that the metro was heading to Gare Du Nord, and then began talking about star signs, and about how different cities were linked with different star signs. He also discussed other esoteric topics.
While this was going on, Gavin noticed that everyone else on the metro appeared to be staring at him like he was completely mad. At that moment he thought to himself “No-one else can see this man, only I can.” He has no idea why he felt this was the case. It was an extremely unusual situation. Similar to the man he had met while living in Gilford, Gavin felt that the man was not a normal human being, and could have been an ET or other evolved being.
Gavin feels that on these occasions, beings in human form have interacted with him on purpose in order to pass on certain information to him.
In 1997 Gavin went to visit friends in the USA. He flew to Alburquerque and was picked up by Ben and Lindsey. The following day they drove to Boulder, Colorado (a 7 hour drive), where Ben was going to be attending a breathing course. They planned to stay with Keria, a friend of Gavin’s.
By the time they arrived at Boulder it was late afternoon. After dropping off some equipment for Ben’s workshop they drove to Keira’s house to meet up with her and Lindsey. While chatting Keira mentioned that an acquaintance of hers was having a party in Golden, a small town to the South of Boulder. She said that Sandra and her partner could sometimes be a little strange but were always very interesting to chat with, and that Sandra’s husband claimed to have created a machine which could alter people’s DNA. Gavin didn’t any questions at this time, but secretly thought to himself “I wonder what sort of party this is going to be?”
After being at Keira’s house for about half an hour, something very unusual happened to Gavin and Lindsey. They felt they’d completely lost track of time, and time wasn’t passing at a normal speed. Even though they were aware of this, neither of them looked at their watches. However they did check the time shortly before they set off to drive to the party. It was around 7pm, later than they had initially planned.
Aerial map with Boulder and Golden circled:
They set off on the drive to Golden, leaving Boulder and heading out into the countryside. Gavin was in a car with Keira. Ben and Lindsey followed behind in a second car. There were no other vehicles on the road and it was dark. As they drove they noticed a low mist floating just above the road. It was only about 2 feet high, so it was possible to see over the top of it from the car window. As soon as they entered the mist Gavin felt very uncomfortable and could feel that something was not right. He wanted to tell Keira who was driving to stop the car. But he felt that she would think he was crazy so he decided to keep it to himself.
They continued to drive. Keira knew the route to the party as she had been to the house numerous times before and Gavin had a map. She told Gavin that they had to take the next turning on the left. But for some reason the road turning did not seem to appear. After a short while Keira decided they must have accidentally gone past the turning, although Gavin couldn’t remember seeing it. She did a U-turn and they headed back down the road. This time they found the turning. Both Gavin and Keira were confused that they had not seen it the first time. They turned onto the road and carried on driving. At the next turning they had to go right. But again the road didn’t seem to be there. Like before Keira turned the car around and there it was! It was as though the roads were all mixed up for some reason and turnings weren’t appearing where they should be.
Gavin thought back to the dream he used to have when he was young. What was happening seemed to be spookily similar. Keira could not understand what was going on. She said to Gavin “I’ve been to this place before, I know where I am, but for some reason all the roads seem different tonight”.
Due to the constant missing of turns, they eventually arrived at Golden about 90 minutes later than planned. They got out of their cars and went to the house where the party was taking place. As soon as Gavin saw the other party guests he immediately thought “They’re not human”. He didn’t know why he had this feeling, as the guests did not look different in any way; it was more a strong sense. He looked at his friends and they were all acting like there was nothing wrong, so he thought maybe it was just him. He did not say anything to the others. They all went into the kitchen to get something to eat.
While they were in the kitchen, Sandra’s daughter entered the room. Gavin looked down at the girl, who appeared to be around 11. He immediately thought to himself “Fuck, it’s a demon!” The girl looked normal, other than the fact she was wearing a lot of make-up. However she was behaving oddly. She walked up to Gavin and said to him “It’s become un-naturally cold hasn’t it.” Gavin got the distinct feeling that the girl knew that he was aware she was not normal. Once again he looked back at his friends, and like before they were acting like nothing was wrong. He just responded to the girl saying “Yes, it’s really strange.”
For some reason Gavin then decided to go for a walk through the house on his own, despite feeling uneasy. He entered a room and remembers seeing a group of people sitting in a circle discussing the occult and witchcraft. Gavin was a little disturbed by this but sat and listened a short while. He then saw Keira walk past with Ben and Lindsey. He thought to himself “Maybe Keira’s going to show them the machine”. He was interested to see this himself so he went and joined them. Sure enough Keira confirmed she was going to show them the machine.
They reached a smoked-glass door, through which flickering lights could be seen. Keira slid back the door, Gavin felt a strong sense of evil coming from the room, so much so that he felt quite nauseous. Around the edges of the room were computer screens with scrolling information on them. Hanging from the ceiling was what appeared to be a huge glowing pink-coloured crystal. Underneath this was a wooden bench, which had a naked person lying on it screaming and writhing around. Gavin could not make out whether it was a man or a woman. Without any explanation Keira then walked off, leaving him, Ben and Lindsey standing there at the doorway.
Sandra’s husband approached them, and asked Ben if he would like to go on the machine. Inexpiably Ben agreed saying that he would love to! Gavin was completely confused as to what was happening. He could not understand everyone’s reactions to the situation. He walked off with Lindsey. As soon as they were out of earshot Lindsey said to him “Thank God I had a good night’s sleep last night as I have no idea what’s going on here. The people in this house are just not human!” Gavin was relieved to see it wasn’t just him who was having these thoughts and replied “I know, I think that as well!”
They sat down together and started discussing how they were going to get out of the situation. Keira was also in the room but talking to other people she knew. Ben and Sandra’s husband entered the room and for some reason when Gavin looked at him he sensed that he was somehow going to lose him, almost like he was a lost soul. Gavin informed Lindsey that he was going to tell Keira that he wasn’t feeling well and that he and Lindsey wanted to leave. Much to Gavin’s surprise Keira also wanted to leave. They all got ready to leave, but Ben wanted to stay, saying “I have to go on this machine”. Gavin calmly started trying to persuade him that it was best to go. At this moment it was as if the other guests realised that Gavin and his friends were not part of what was taking place, and they all began staring at them. Gavin says it was something like out of a horror film!
In the end he managed to persuade Ben to leave. They all got back in their cars and began to drive home. As they drove, the low mist once again appeared over the road. Just like before the roads seemed wrong and they got hopelessly lost. They pulled over at a petrol station so Keira could ask for directions back to Boulder. A minute later she emerged from the station store and said to them “I don’t understand this. The woman behind the counter has never head of Boulder or Golden. They can’t be far away!”
They got back on the road and for what seemed like an hour drove around completely lost. Turnings did not seem to be where they should have been. Then suddenly things seemed to go back to normal, like there was some kind of shift. They all stopped at a nearby cafe to discuss what had just happened. As they talked, Gavin realised that both Lindsey and Keira had the same experience as he had done at the party. They felt that the other guests there were odd in some way or not human, and there was something very wrong with the girl who had come into the kitchen. None of them had spoken of their experience at the party, thinking that they were alone. The only person who didn’t seem to have had the same experience was Ben.
When Gavin spoke to Keira about what had taken place, Keira said she had been to the house numerous times before and been shown the machine also. She said treated the machine as a big joke, but the events of that evening had left her feeling very frightened.
Once safely back at Keira’s house Gavin felt that nothing else strange would take place and relaxed. However the following day something similar took place! Gavin and Lindsey had gone for a walk round Boulder during the day. They came across a cafe advertising apple strudel. They entered the cafe. The street outside was busy but the cafe was empty apart from them and the waiter. They ordered two portions of apple strudel and two coffees. The waiter responded in a very strange way, saying “Sorry, we don’t do apple strudel, we never have”.
Gavin replied “But there’s a sign in the window”. The waiter said “I’m sorry, we just don’t do it”. The way in which the waiter was acting was cold, just like the people at the party the previous evening. Both Gavin and Lindsey felt uneasy so got up and left the cafe. As soon as they stepped outside everything went back to normal.
Gavin remains completely baffled by what took place at the party and during the following day. Looking back at the experience he wonders whether they had been transported into an alternative dimension.
These experiences are certainly odd, and while it seems possible that something very unusual took place, there may possibly have been mundane explanations for at least some of what was experienced. Rather than look at the experience as a whole, it should be broken down into its different components.
First of all the low mist which was seen over the road could well have been nothing more than this. And perhaps the fact that it was partially obscuring the road meant it was harder to see the junctions, which could possibly have accounted for the fact that they were initially missed but then seemed to reappear. Also it is possible that Keira was not as familiar with the area as she thought she was. After missing the first junction she could have lost her bearings and sense of direction, which could then have influenced the rest of the journey. That said, it is strange that both Gavin and Keira seemed to be missing the turnings, at no point did Gavin see a junction which Keira then subsequently missed, whatever was happening appeared to be happening to them both.
Due to what had seemingly taken place on the journey, Gavin and his friends would have been in uneasy frame of mind. Perhaps this feeling of unease remained with them, and played a part in their feelings towards the other party guests. According to Gavin the girl who came into the kitchen was wearing lots of makeup. This may have given her an odd appearance, heightening the feelings that Gavin and some of his friends were experiencing.
The “DNA changing machine” is obviously an extremely strange aspect of the experience. Clearly at least Sandra and her husband believed that it did something, although the details of exactly what are unknown. The reactions of the other party guests during the party suggest that they too believed it was real. Gavin still has many questions about the machine – How had it been built? Exactly how did it change DNA? Why would anyone want it to change their DNA in the first place?
Could the party guests have been part of a cult of some kind? If so this could explain why they were acting strangely, were discussing unusual subjects linked with witchcraft and the occult, and why Sandra’s husband was trying to persuade Ben to have a go on the machine. The fact that Gavin’s feelings were shared by Lindsey, Keira and Ben shows that what took place was not just down to his own imagination.
Once again on the road home the same thing occurred as before. This could well have been for the same reasons already discussed. The fact that the lady at the petrol station was not aware of Boulder or Golden does sound odd, but could well have had a rational explanation. Perhaps she had only just moved to the area, or was standing in for someone else that evening and had travelled there specially. Or there is even the possibility that she was playing a joke on Keira and just pretending not to have heard of Boulder or Golden.
The incident which happened at the cafe the following day could possibly have been down to Gavin and Lindsey’s frame of mind at the time. They were still quite shook up by what had taken place the previous evening so would have been on edge and almost expecting something odd to occur. Perhaps someone else had put the sign in the window about the apple strudel, and the waiter was not aware that they were supposed to be selling it at the time. Or maybe the sign had been left in the window for a long time and was no longer relevant.
While there are possible mundane explanations for some of what was experienced by Gavin and his friends on this occasion, it does seem very odd that all of this would occur on the same evening and following day. Could it all have just been a long series of coincidences which when viewed together made the witnesses feel something very strange was taking place? Or did they really enter an alternative dimension of reality - A dimension where places changed of their own accord, and beings disguised as humans carried out bizarre experiments involving the manipulation of DNA? We may never know for certain.
Time Slip In Alburquerque
The bizarre incidents which took place at Golden and Boulder were not the only experiences Gavin had in the USA. The following year he visited a friend, Evan, in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Due to an extremely late train, Gavin arrived 8 hours later than expected at around 10pm. He phoned Evan, who suggested that as he lived on the outskirts of Albuquerque he should stop over at the house of another friend of his, Peter, and then finish his journey in the morning. Gavin agreed and gave Peter a call.
Peter said it would be fine for him to stop over and informed Gavin it would take him about 10 minutes in a taxi to reach the house. Gavin said that it may take longer due to the fact that there were no taxi’s around so he would have to wait for one to turn up.
Gavin put the phone down, and at that moment a taxi cab pulled up near to him. Gavin was pleased that one had shown up so quickly. He then noticed that there was a second man sitting alongside the driver in the front of the car. Both men got out of the cab to help him with his luggage. It was clear that they were friends. For a brief moment Gavin thought to himself that it might be dangerous due to the fact that there were two of them. But he soon settled down as he began to speak with the men.
Gavin got into the back of the taxi and it set off, but as he looked out of the window everything became blurred, as if they were travelling at hundreds of miles an hour. Although finding it strange, Gavin was not scared and it somehow felt quite normal as well. The men started asking him where he had been previously on his travels. Gavin told them that he had been staying out in the desert with some friends. At this the men asked “How is it when you’re walking through the desert, how do you feel?” Gavin thought to himself “That’s an odd question to ask”, but he responded saying “Well I like the heat and the wind”. The men asked again “But how do you really feel? What do you sense?” Gavin wondered what was going on and why the men were asking him such strange questions.
The taxi pulled up outside Peter’s house. As Gavin got out of the cab, all he wanted to do was stay and continue talking to the driver and his friend. Gavin felt like he and the two men were from the same spiritual family. However Gavin ignored this, paid the men and walked up to the front door with his luggage. He rang the door, and Peter answered. Gavin said “Hi, my name’s Gavin, I rang about ten minutes ago.” Peter looked puzzled and replied “Is this a joke?” “No what do you mean?” Gavin asked. “How come you’re already here, I just put down the phone after talking to you. You were at the station weren’t you, when you called?”
Somehow Gavin had arrived a moment after finishing his call with Peter. Gavin felt certain it had something to do with the two men in the taxi cab, and the way in which everything had looked blurred outside while he was travelling in the vehicle. Gavin told Peter what had happened, but doesn’t know whether Peter really believed him or thought he was making it all up.
Looking back on the experience, just as on previous occasions, Gavin believes that the two men were ETs or other beings of some kind that wanted to show him that time is not lineal as many believe. Just as with some of Gavin’s other strange encounters, there were other people involved with this experience. It was Peter who verified that Gavin had showed up at the house almost instantly after the phone call had taken place, and Gavin is absolutely certain that he made this call from a phone box at Albuquerque train station before he got into the taxi. We are left with a perplexing mystery, one that has some aspects which are extremely hard to explain using mainstream science.
Shortly after the incident in Albuquerque, Gavin was once again in Colorado, this time at Keira’s wedding with his boyfriend, Steven. On their way back to New Mexico they decided to stop off at Crestone (renowned for UFO sightings) to watch a sunset. They turned off the highway and took the Crestone road – which zigzags just before ending in the town. As soon as they arrived Gavin sensed that something wasn’t right. They stopped a local store to buy some wine, where a man came and stood in close proximity behind them, almost causing body contact. As Gavin and Steve wandered around the store looking at the wine selection, the man followed, always in close proximity. Neither Gavin nor Steve mentioned it until they left the store.
As they walked round the town, Gavin remarked that most people were acting almost like zombies. Both Gavin and Steve were hungry so decided to quickly get something to eat, then leave Crestone. They entered a small cafe. Nobody glanced in their direction. This again seemed very odd and different to normal behaviour, apart from the waiter. While they waited for their food, not a single person acknowledged their presence in any way whatsoever. They both felt uneasy, especially Steven. After eating they quickly left the cafe.
As they walked back to the car Steven stopped briefly to look in a shop window. Gavin continued on. A car pulled up alongside and slowly followed him. The driver stared intensely at Gavin. Once again Gavin felt they were in an alternative reality. It seemed as though some people were somehow not aware of them, whereas others noticed straight away that they Gavin and Steve did not belong.
On the road out of Crestone as they drove through the zigzag, they both felt that the zigzag had changed, and was now the other way round. They reached the main road and the rest of the journey went without incident.
Once again Gavin feels that this was some kind of shift in reality like had occurred on previous occasions. People seemed to act in unusual ways. Clearly something felt very strange to both Gavin and Steven, so it cannot simply be put down to paranoia. However it is possible that because they were both visitors to the town perhaps some other people picked up on this and this led to them being treated differently. Also it is possible that they had simply not remembered the correct layout for the road, though it is interesting that both Gavin and Steven felt it was different to before.
Alien Dimensions – Witness Statement
You have just read details of seven of the many unusual incidents which Gavin has experienced which have involved people or places which have seemingly changed from the norm. Below are Gavin’s own thoughts on what has taken place.
“It’s like this shift in reality somehow. Whether it’s a different aspect of humanity that you suddenly see, I don’t know. Each time it happens there’s a sudden feeling of anxiety that comes, sometimes minutes before, sometimes hours before. I could be going to a friend’s place or something and suddenly I feel anxious but I don’t know why. And usually I’m either with someone or there’s somebody else wherever I am, and I notice that they also look disturbed by what they are experiencing. I don’t know why it happens, and what I’m seeing, or what we are all seeing when I am with other people, but we all have the same experience.”
Due to the high strangeness of the incidents which Gavin has experienced you may feel a little wary of them. However I do not feel these experiences should be easily dismissed. I have spoke with Gavin for an extended period of time via both Skype with webcam and E-Mail. He appears both level headed and truthful, and I certainly believe that the incidents have taken place as he has reported them. While it is possible that some of what has happened could have been down to personal interpretation of events, in most cases there have been other witnesses present who have backed up what Gavin has seen or felt, either at the time or later on. This suggests that they have certainly happened, although the reasons behind them are far from clear.
Most of the experiences that Gavin has described, both in his childhood and later on, are not typical of ET contact. He does not appear to have been abducted, nor has he seen any entities which have been physically different to human. While fears of going to sleep at night are common, and unusual paranormal activity is regularly reported, I have not heard anyone speak of the glowing dust or small wispy clouds that he has experienced on numerous occasions. And the experiences which Gavin believes may be some kind of dimensional shift involving people who behave abnormally, and places that seem to temporarily change, are very unusual indeed.
I cannot think of any comparable case which I have directly investigated. Gavin has not had any experiences of this type in quite a number of years, so perhaps whatever took place is now over.
Whatever the reasons for the experiences you have read about in this report, it is certainly one of the most intriguing cases I have looked into in quite some time. I would like to close by thanking Gavin for coming forward with this fascinating information and allowing it to be published.
