    Thank you, Chlodovech. A priest will be coming to bless my flat soon, and my Confessor told me to keep praying to St. Michael.

    All of this started in the 1990s when I started thinking seriously about converting to Catholicism and the events have happened in various places on two different continents. Two people were very opposed to me converting, and made no secret of it. A priest I know who is an exorcist thinks that one of these people actively wished for something very malevolent to befall me.

    Borderland Phenomena Volume One: Spontaneous Combustion, Poltergeistry and Anomalous Lights, by Louis Proud

    Reviewed by Robert A. Charman

    Louis Proud is an Australian writer specialising in Fortean literature recounting weird anomalous experiences and events that, if true, lie at the borderland of scientific understanding and often stretches credibility to its limits. Proud is the author of Dark Intrusions (2009), The Secret Influence of the Moon (2013) and Strange Electromagnetic Dimensions (2015). This account, written in the first person, carries enthusiastic endorsements from Whitley Strieber ‘sparkles with brilliance’, Mitch Horowitz ‘Proud is, hands down, one of today’s brightest and most gleaming intellects in the area of anomalous phenomena’ Gary Lachman ‘fascinating excursion into the not-yet-known’ and Jeffrey J. Kripal ‘Able and trustworthy guide through this strange, liminal realm where almost anything is possible and nothing quite adds up.’

    Fascinating though they are, cases of claimed spontaneous human combustion (SHC), a term coined in 1746 for bodies found almost completely incinerated without apparent cause, the baffling appearance and behaviour of strange atmospheric lights, and the often truly bizarre behaviour of ball lightning and glowing balls of ionised plasma (thought by some to exhibit intelligent behaviour) are well outside the investigative interests of the Society for Psychical Research. These interests are defined as ‘those faculties of man, real or supposed, which appear to be inexplicable on any generally recognised hypothesis’ manifesting themselves as instances of extrasensory perception and psychokinesis as in influencing by intention the physical behaviour of objects across space or the physiological processes of living systems as in distant healing. The modern term that brings all such proposed mental faculties together under one heading is psi. This being so, theories offering possible explanations for these Fortean non-psi topics as explored by Proud in Parts 1 and 3, can offer no clues as to the unsolved nature of psi, although according to Proud there may be a tenuous relationship centred upon being in the presence of poltergeistic activity.

    This brings us to Part 2, consisting of two chapters The Dark Night of the Soul and A Bundle of Projected Depressions respectively, concerning ‘poltergeisty’ phenomena such as chairs, chests of drawers and tables moving across floors, ornaments sliding around, small objects flying through the air in slow motion arabesques without apparent cause, stones falling onto the roof or falling from the ceiling, doors opening and shutting, loud thuds or knocks, bedclothes being pulled off and so on. It can also include the sudden appearance of puddles of water or small outbreaks of fire. Proud does not think that official explanations of SHC such as the wick effect of burning dresses or pyjamas soaking up the body fat adequately explain what is found and wonders whether in some cases there is a link with poltergeistic outbreaks of localised fires, described by Guy Lyon Playfair (2011) as ‘instances of paranormal spontaneous combustion’, or ball lightning travelling down chimneys as some victims have been in front of fireless fireplaces. He even considers the possibility of incineration from ionised plasma ball explosions.

    (...)
    Rest at the above link.
    The sense of honor is of so fine and delicate a nature that
    it is only to be met with in minds which are naturally noble or
    cultivated by good examples and a refined education.

I've experienced televisions turning on and off by themselves, new computers literally smoking and exploding, and a microwave that would turn itself on and off by itself (in the middle of the night, no less). Funnily enough, the day I took the microwave out of my flat, my dishwasher broke and flooded the kitchen. Oh, and also wrist watches; they usually malfunction and mysteriously stop working shortly after I put them on. Very bizarre!
    Maybe it could be some sort of magnetic field in your area or some manifestation of telekinesis or technopathy. What liquid was in the glass when you set it on the counter? Was the glass old or new? Almost all of it is related to technology so it can probably be explained by science.

    Btw technology is generally unreliable. I know this from experience. Sometimes I absolutely abhor it. Perhaps much of this shoddiness can be blamed on corporations deliberately sabotaging their own products to make a buck. Limited time warranties, terrible customer service and help communities (see Microsoft and their scripted responses), misleading reviews (almost all of them positive), experimental products (slim PC desktops which use laptop motherboards and are horribly sluggish with Win10 unless you do a LOT of customizing), bad design choices (i.e. the cylinder part of the cable of a wired Xbox 360 controller results in disconnect issues), etc. I would go so far as to suggest that they pay their scientists to falsify reports. The worst thing of all is the existence of Torx screws.

    So I wouldn't take every kind of technological mishap as a sign. New computers can be just as unreliable as used ones. Every computer ought to come with a 500W power supply and an above average CPU and graphics card, but they want people to spend money on the upgrades.

    Maybe it could have been your guardian angel trying to dissuade you from giving yourself over to an erroneous sect or get your attention.

    Were the two people atheists? How did they proceed in their attempts to deter you? Slander or persuasion?

    It wasn't a terribly new glass, and though I don't specifically remember if there was liquid in it, I don't believe there was.

    No, I don't take these mishaps as signs.

    Well, I respectfully disagree about the erroneous sect part, Terminus.

    It's a little difficult to describe. Both were baptized Protestants raised in, for the most part, non-practicing homes. One progressed from atheism to philosophical Satanism, which gradually grew into an obsession/preoccupation with the figure of Satan. The other was a secular humanist with leanings towards the left-hand path.

    Persuasion, definitely. Also ridicule and some insults and threats, especially with the philosophical Satanist.

    Huh that is odd.

    That doesn't sound healthy.

    The latter doesn't sound so bad. How would you define left-hand path?

    Looking at the number of devout Christians who are having these weird experiences and I'd say that it was due to them already believing in supernatural forces (eg. God, Satan, angels & whatnot...) so their minds will be more predisposed to this kind of stuff.

    Yes. My hubby posted a really good account of a supernatural event that happened in the new home we just moved into in this thread:

    It was a very creepy experience.
