So yesterday I got talking to someone about their experiences with the paranormal. Now, i'm pretty skeptical about the whole ghosts, demons, spirits, precognition etc. thing due mainly to the fact that i've had literally one thing happen to me that I couldn't explain away. However, after sitting and listening to this person tell me about the things they had seen and felt before, things that had driven them from a house and lingered around them since early adolescence and seeing their conviction when they were when telling me this, I won't say that it has turned me into a believer, but it has maybe made me more open to peoples stories and more open to the possibility that there is more than meets the eye in this world.
So, what i'm looking for now is peoples stories about the unexplained. I want to hear whatever you guys have to tell me, be it in nope format or however you want to do it.
tl;dr - Lets hear dem weird stories.

I don't want to die. That is, I don't want to die ever. I have such a huge fear of death it's pathetic.
The thought of not being able to think, see or feel, of the fact that my life will one day be done and all that I've achieved and created will be given an ending, that this curve of bettering myself and becoming wiser will end. I feel like it's going to cut everything short, that if I was given more time I could reach something that I can't within one human life, this is really hard to describe but that's how I feel. Thinking of myself as an old man witnessing my own body slowly breaking down, noticing my own mind starting to falter, knowing that my life will be over within a few years sounds so scary it hurts.
What are the chances that within the next 60 or so years the technology to transfer our consciousness or repairing our body indefinitely will be available? If not, how soon would it, if ever? I'm seriously considering cryogenetic storage or whatever it is called to try cheat death.

What does /x/ think of Billy Meiers?
For those who don't know, Meiers claims that he has been regularly visited by aliens called "plejarens" and has produced enormous amounts of photos, videos, physical evidence, and also many predictions on future events and discoveries.
Unlike all other UFO contactees I have seen, whom are basically blatant hoaxes, the Meiers case interests me because 38 years after he went public in 1975, researchers are still analyzing his evidence and experts still seem to be stumped in debunking Meiers.
The evidence I personally have found to be most compelling:
-complete failure in reproducing fake photos and movies as good as Meier's using 1970s technology (ie no digital photo editing)
-Meier's great number of accurate predictions: in 1958 he predicted cell phones, global warming, AIDS, and other modern ideas/objects. He also, in 1976, predicted that mars had water, and claimed jupiter's rings to have a composition different than what was believed at the time.
and this is literally just the tip of the iceberg. It fascinates me the sheer volume of transcripts and photos Meier has produced, in comparison to the evidence suggesting Meier is a fraud.
Obviously skeptics have found a few specific photos to latch on to as proof of Meier's hoax, but until someone explains to me how a 1 armed swedish farmer with no technical no-how or tools made an immense amount of high quality evidence in a short amount of time with no help (or at least, 38 years later no one has claimed to be a "co-conspirator"), I simply cannot help myself from accepting what this man has said as true.

Sup /x/!, first of all excuse my poor english (not a first language for me).
Well I'm currently studying visual arts, and in order to pass this specific drawing course I need to create an artist's book (basicly a work of art with a book format).
So, tired as I am of drawing nude models, fruits, landscapes, and other random cliche shit, I thought, HEY, fuck this, I'm making a bestiarium.
Something like an illustrated recopilation of paranormal, magic, ghostlike creatures, etc ... pretty much anything that would be fun to interpretate and draw (things like big-foot, chupacabras, etc, won't do, we have a very defined image of how the look, and I'm trying to let my imagination shit rainbows here).
The idea is to have a worldmap as an intro for the book, where I would tag the different creatures (according to its sightings), and then create individual files for each one of them, with sketches of how they supposedly look like, and a small version of the legend where it comes from that specifies where does it lives, why or where do they appear, what it does to humans, etc.
I already have a couple of local folklore legends in mind, (will dump them later if the thread gets replies) but I would really like to hear yours.
In case you guys like the idea and reply with interesting stuff I guess I could post results later to get suggestions, critics and just for the fun of getting trashed online.
Oh, I've also been thinking I could add like a little section of "advices" on the book, with tips to repel certain creatures, what to offer them get favors, symbols, elements or items that represent them, etc.
If the story you're sharing specifies this type of data would be awesome and very welcome. If not just dump what you know and I'll investigate the rest.
I AM AWARE OF SEARCH ENGINES, I just thought this collab thing would make the process much more interesting.
So that's it, share share share. (and again, sorry if this was poorly translated and difficult to read.)
