A glitch in the matrix is an experience that proves something isn’t right in the world or sometimes your brain.
Here are some creepy experiences that are supposedly true as reported by these users.
- DEAD BUT NOT DEAD
by reddit user 3clipse
I knew my uncle had died.
My mom had called me and told me the news. It was very sad. She told me in the middle of work and I told one of my coworkers. He expressed his condolences on my loss.
A couple weeks later, my sister mentioned my aunt and uncle doing something. I said “but…he’s dead.” And my sister said no, he wasn’t.
I called my mom. No, he wasn’t dead.
To this day I’m still not sure how much of it my brain imagined and how much was real. Did I really talk to my coworker? Was I even on the phone with my mom at all that day?
It still freaks me out knowing that my mind could fabricate so complete and real a memory like that.
- WHY DID WE TALK LIKE THAT
by reddit user WittyRepost
Several years ago I woke up in bed next to my (now ex) girlfriend and we had a conversation in fluent French. I got up and got in the shower, and as the water started running I realized, neither of us spoke French. When I got out I asked her about it. She remembered it happening but was as confused as I was. I can’t even remember what we talked about because I don’t fucking speak French. Brains are weird.

My dad has epilepsy and says that he’ll experience this when he doesn’t take his meds. Sort of like a fugue state. He went to Aspen on a business trip to design a ski lodge and he forgot his meds at home. He was supposed to do a big presentation but he never showed up. His coworkers looked for him for hours until they finally found him walking down the highway in the snow, 8 miles from their hotel. Apparently he had completely forgot who he was, where he was, and why he was there. He figured if he just started walking he could piece things together and figure things out. He snapped out of it when he saw the familiar faces of his coworkers.
- A DIFFERENT PATH
by reddit user A_lot_of_italics
One day I was walking to work and all of a sudden had an urge to walk a different path than usual. I work downtown in a big city. It was a strange spur of the moment urge to walk a different way that changed my life forever.
I turned into an alley I had never seen before. As I remember it, I made it about fifteen feet or so when an actual “glitch” happened. Everything in my mind scrambled. I felt like I didn’t have a body anymore, just that I was a semi-conscious entity floating through some weird dimension. All of a sudden in the array of different colors and shapes a vision came to me. It was a bunch of strange looking people that in my mind resembled businessmen in suits. They looked startled and panicked that I could see them. One of the “people” made a quick movement and everything turned to black.
When I regained normality, I was on a completely different street. It was the same street that I always use to walk to work. I felt sick, and severely disturbed/depressed.
I’ve never done any hard drugs, never experienced any hallucinations, never have had anything like this happen to me. The weird thing is, when the glitch was correcting itself and I could see those “people” watching me like a caged animal I had the feeling that I knew I was being controlled. It still bothers me very much to this day.
- A SHARP BEND
by reddit user pistacchio
When I was like 10 or 11 I was going to the beach with my aunt and her friends. There were two cars of us. To get there we had to go through a very large industrial area. We didn’t know the direction, so our car was following the other. Suddenly, they did an unexpected turn and so our driver had to take a sharp bend.
In that moment we heard a very clear, loud voice inside the car saying laughing “Sharp bend, hm?!”. The driver immediately hit the brakes. We looked at each other, puzzled: we all recognized it as a voice not belonging to any of us.
In the very same time, we noticed that the other car has stopped as well. The other driver got out of the car with a scared face and shouted to us: “Did… did you hear that as well?”.
They heard the very same thing inside their car. The area around was full deserted.
- THE SUICIDE DREAM
by reddit user 47attemptslater
When I was a teenager I had two really intense dreams one night. The first one was about an online friend of mine calling me to say she’d broken up with her boyfriend, and I sang a few lines of Seal’s “Don’t Cry” to her over the phone. The second dream was finding a (real life) friend dead body floating in her bathtub.
I didn’t think anything of it up until I logged online that evening and the online friend came online to tell me her boyfriend broke up with her. I immediately asked if I could call her, and she said no. I remember thinking that it meant something, like I could change it. Not long after, my phone rang, and it was Real Life friend from the dream calling me. I was completely freaked at this point, but talked to her normally… she was just talking about school and shit… up until I realized I heard a splash in the background. I asked her, “Are you in the tub?” and when she said yes I felt like my heart had stopped. I asked her, “What did you do?”. She didn’t answer me right away, and then after a very long pause she told me she’d taken an entire bottle of pills and chased it with mushrooms and vodka. She’d gotten scared waiting for it to hit her… so she called me so she’d hear someone’s voice. I hung up and called 911. By the time they got there she was unconscious, but alive. Today she’s a mom to a beautiful little girl, and she’s ok.
- NO BRUISES OR SCRATCHES
by reddit user mbalsevich
Was monkeying on the hand rails of a balcony on the 4th floor of my building and fell off, as 2 of my buddies watched in horror.
I remember seeing the concrete floor approaching as I fell head first and thinking “oh fuck - I’m going to break my wrist” (Why my wrist? dunno)
Next recollection is seeing my buddies yelling, from up there, “Are you OK!? ARE YOU OK!?”.
I look up, I say: “What happened?”.
They did not see my actually hit the floor, they just ran outside and saw me already standing looking up.
Not a scratch, not a bruise, nothing hurted. I don’t remember hitting the floor, standing up, nothing. No memories exist for those 1 or 2 seconds.
None of us 3 ever understood what happened. But we all saw it and agree on what happened.
- MY EYES ARE BURNING
by reddit user ClassicJenny
About 15 years ago my friends parents, Steve and Julie, were woken up at 1am to a very loud THUD that rattled the house. Worried that one of the kids had fallen out of the bunk bed Steve went downstairs to check on them but all three kids were sound asleep and safe in their beds. Julie told Steve to check the house in case of intruders so Steve checked the doors and windows before going outside to take a look.
After ten minutes of investigating the noise Steve came across nothing unusual and went back inside to go to bed. He found his wife absolutely worried sick and she demanded to know where the hell he had gone and what happened. Confused and tired Steve told her he found nothing and tried to calm her down before Julie pointed out that it was now 4am and that he had been missing for 3 hours. Julie had even gone outside to check on him and he was nowhere to be found and didn’t respond to her calling his name. Unable to figure out what happened they returned to bed and slept until Steve had to get up for work in a few hours.
Steve owns a painting business and a couple hours after working on a house he noticed his eyes started to feel itchy, then his eyes started to burn, then after a couple hours his eyes burned so badly that he was holding his eyelids open as to not blink because it felt like his lids were sandpaper against his eyes. His employees rushed him to the hospital and Steve was treated for second degree flash burns on his eyes. He was told his burns were equivalent to staring at a welders torch without eye protection for an extended period of time. His eyes were treated and he was lucky to have his vision fully restored.
So that’s all I got for now. You can view the full thread here
So do any of you have experiences like this? A glitch in the system experience?
Make a post and tag “sixpenceee”! I would love to read them and will be reblogging the ones that really make me go “woah”
You may have heard of automatic writing before, it’s when people claim to have spirits controlling their hand to get a message across by writing it down. Examples include the pictures above.
For more information on this and how to actually do it yourself, check this out: X
But that’s not the point of this post. Recently, there’s been an analysis behind this topic.
Andrew Newberg and Julio F. P. Peres have collaborated together to test mediums that specialized in automatic writing.
They tested ten mediums, five who were less experienced and five with more experience. They injected a tracer to measure brain activity, and found that the ones with more experience showed less activity in the frontal lobe. The ones with less experience showed more activity in the frontal lobe.
The frontal lobe is the area associated with consciousness, movement, emotion and problem solving.
One theory is that the ones with less experience showed more of a forced attempt to create something, while the ones with more experience kind of let loose, and allowed their hand to freely move around without conscious control.
Ironically, the ones with more experience had more complex depictions than the ones with less experience. More complex depictions should require increased activity in the frontal lobe. In reality, quite the opposite occurred
Words of advice: no matter how much of a skeptic you are, don’t mess with these things for giggles.
probably the most dangerous method. It’s when you have a planchette and a board like this
You ask a question and a spirit moves the planchette for you, directing to certain letters to tell you information. The reason it’s dangerous, is because you don’t know who you are opening up to. It could be a hideous demon pretending to be your long gone grandma.
It’s when you clear your mind, and kind of open up your arm to be controlled by sprits. The writing is not your own but the spirits.
Instructions to do it here
Examples of automatic writing:
Get a couple friends that want to contact ghosts.
With this you are getting a group of like-minded people together and when several people get together for a common purpose, it makes communication more easier.
People often hold hands during a seance and this is just to help focus the energy. You don’t have to hold hands but it seems to help people concentrate better.
Focused concentration and a common goal is what makes seances work.
Before you use your device make sure you’ve got the proper mindset.
Make it clear you are hoping to communicate with the spirit world, invite the contact, open your mind to allowing it to happen.
Don’t let negative thoughts ruin it.
Ask questions and let the recorder, record for awhile. The idea behind this is that it can pick up voices and frequencies we can’t hear.
While yes, most people use it to clear their mind and relax it can also be used for spirit communication.
I’ve heard many, many theories about how our own sub-conscious is the greatest link for spirit communication. We’re just so bothered with everyday activities that we can’t hear what the other side says to us in a daily basis.
Here you can read about how to meditate
Master it first and clear your mind and allow communication. Be patient. According to someone who tried it this way “their thoughts enter hers and she feels a warm and buzzing sensation”
This one I got from a book by Raymond Moody, the guy who coined the term near death experience.
Those who tried it the correct way had an 80% chance of actually seeing the full fledged version of the dead person they wanted to talk to.
I think it’s pretty safe too, if you don’t have any negative thoughts (example: oh no what if I accidentally conjure up a demon)
You can read more about it and how to do it here
You take a small crystal attach it to a necklace chain, and swing it. You ask a question and the direction of the swing, how fast it swings, which way it is swinging is supposed to tell you the answer to your question.
Here are some sites with people who have actually tried it and are speaking from experience
Ok, that’s all I got so far.
Be cautious with these things!
Write a post about your experience and tag me in them! :)
So I know how sixpenceee is in the Graveyard Fandom, so I went out and took some pics! All of them are from Sleepy Hollow Cemetery in Sleepy Hollow, NY, where Washington Irving, Walter Chrysler, William Rockefeller, and Leo Baekeland are buried. None are them are edited. They’re from October 2013. Hope you like them!:)
These are wonderful! Thank you!
Another oddity museum for all the bizarre lovers!
The Musée Fragonard d’Alfort is a museum of anatomical oddities.
It opened to the public in 1991, and today consists of three rooms containing a large collection of anatomical oddities and dissections, most of which date from the 19th and early 20th centuries.
In addition to animal skeleton and dissections such as a piglet displayed in cross-section, the museum contains a substantial collection of monstrosities Siamese twin lambs, a two-headed calf, a 10-legged sheep, and a colt with one huge eye.
The museum’s most astonishing items are the famous “écorchés” (flayed figures) prepared by Honoré Fragonard.
His speciality was the preparation and preservation of skinned cadavers, of which he prepared some 700 examples. Only 21 remain; all are on display in the museum’s final room

SPIDER GATE CEMETERY
This was suggested to me by a follower.You can suggest topics by sending me a message.
This is also known as Quaker cemetery; it is located in Leicester, Massachusetts.
There have been rumors that the Spider Gates are the eighth gate to hell or that as you move closer to the centre of the cemetery the closer you get to hell. Although paranormal investigations are not permitted by the Worcester Friends Meeting, professional ones have taken place on the grounds as well as numerous amateurs trying to find the source of the haunting.
Theories regarding this source range from the alleged hanging of a boy from a tree near the front of the cemetery, the brutal murder of a young girl on the cemetery grounds, and even that the centre of the cemetery, known as “the Altar” due to it being raised and surrounded by trees, is used for Satanic rituals.
If one is there after dark, banned by the Worcester Friends Meeting, you can supposedly hear roars and voices coming from the woods that surround the area. A mysterious white ooze seeps up from the ground.
There are strips of land where no grass grows. There are stones with ancient runes etched into them. And that there is a second, smaller cemetery nearby, that can be found only once, then vanishes.
While some, if not all, of these seem like tall tales, they have nonetheless led to a series of investigations. The only claim that has any evidence is that there was a girl murdered in the area, however she was not mutilated and left in a nearby cave as the stories suggest.
Another popular tale is the Legend of Marmaduke’s Grave. This myth focuses on the grave of Marmaduke Earle, a member of the Earle family buried here. The legend goes that if you walk around Marmaduke’s headstone ten times at midnight, then say, “Marmaduke speak to me” and kneel putting your head on his grave and listening, he will begin to talk to you.
