    Describe anything you have seen from weird to bizarre to completely unbelievable. I'll start.

    A long time ago when I was about 20 (sigh... a long time ago, ugh) Anyway when I was about 20 I was riding around with my cousin in the country. I seen before my very own eyes a HUGE pack of birds, I'm talking tens of thousands migrating together in the sky. I stopped the vehicle so we could watch. I never seen that many birds in my life and I live in the country.

    Then it happened.

    All of the birds began fling in circles and formed a perfect circle. I'm talking the circle looked black and you couldn't see through it. It was not only a circle it was a perfect sphere as big as say 5 large houses put together about 200 feet up. You couldn't even tell it was birds the sphere was so tight and compact. Not one was out of the sphere. Before this happened the sky from our eye sight was filled with birds. And then they just all came together to form this gigantic black ball.

    I couldn't believe what I was seeing. My cousin couldn't either.

    Then it happened again to a greater degree.

    For no less then 3 minutes they formed different shapes that blew our mind! I'm talking ovals, cones, squares, rectangles, and my favorite was the twisted diamond is how I can explain it best. And the shapes were all SOLID and one flowed into the other.

    Then they took off and separated covering our entire vision with birds and flew off.

    It was like they put on a show for us. It was the most beautiful thing I have ever seen in my life. Besides my daughter :)

    Yeah that would be scary! I live in a place where natural disasters are extremely rare. No earth quakes, tornadoes, no venomous snakes, alligators, lions, tigers, or bears. About the only thing you can hurt by around here is by entering a bar.

    What I seen was something like this. I'm surprised I never looked this up before but back then you didn't have youtube, barely the internet and I just really never thought of it much after that.

    It was close to this except from memory the shapes I seen were more compact and profound. It was absolutely amazing to say the least.

    It makes you wonder what force was guiding them. They without a SHADOW OF DOUBT was in communication with each other. Amazing.

    Well I guess I'll go again. I only have a few so I hope there are more people here at SWNN that have something unbelievable they have seen.(duel)

    Bare in mind I speak the complete truth. I wasn't drugged or hallucinating as a friend seen the exact same thing.

    I named my son ORION after the star constellation. So needless to say I like looking up at night. I was showing a friend of mine different star constellations. I was trying to point one out to him for a few min and...

    a star/what I thought was a star shot off across the sky at blazing speed. I followed it from the point it took off all the way across the sky till it disappeared. It lasted less than 2 seconds. My head turned from one side of the sky to the other. Look up and turn your head at an average speed. That's how fast it was from one side of the sky to the other. And it was stationary before it did that for like the 5 seconds I was looking towards it.

    I looked at my friend and before I could say anything he said, "I seen it!"

    I said did you see what I seen? He said yeah that star that shot off.

    I said it was there the whole time right?

    He said yeah I thought it was a star cause I was looking right at it when it happened.

    It was not a meteorite as it was stationary what could it have been?

    To sum things up. There was a white dot in the sky that I seen stationary for about 5 seconds (my friend said he was staring at it longer) and then it shot off at a speed that could have been no less than 100,000 mph.

    I'm not saying alien spacecraft. But it is what I seen and a friend seen the exact same. What could it have been?

    I've experienced and continue to experience many moments of synchronicity (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Synchronicity).

    Like thinking or mentioning something, then someone else, within moments, coming out of nowhere and saying nearly the same thing or something connecting to that.

    It's even happened on this forum a few times for me, wanting to post something only to see someone just posted it.

    Here's one example where I did post something right before someone else said the same thing at nearly the same exact time:
    post 1: https://thecantina.starwarsnewsnet....pisode-9-10-and-11-be-about.8659/#post-244817
    post 2: https://thecantina.starwarsnewsnet....pisode-9-10-and-11-be-about.8659/#post-244819
    post 3: https://thecantina.starwarsnewsnet....pisode-9-10-and-11-be-about.8659/#post-244825

    And this was on a not-so-popular / little known aspect of the Star Wars galaxy: the Unknown Regions. Yet, how appropriate!

    I even mention "synchronicity"
    and the Force at work in that third post. :)

    Sometimes it's something more along the lines of a retroactive recognition: realizing you were there at the right place and time and said or did something (which you did not even think was important at the time), which made some (or all the) positive difference in a situation.

    A Jedi might call that the Will of the Force. A Taoist might simply reference that as The Way. Often it can happen when you least try: "you do or do not" and that makes the difference.

    So, lots of seemingly inexplicable connections and coincidences which seem far too meaningful and related (despite one thing not directly seeming to cause the other) to be dismissed as merely coincidental.

    Over the years, this has lead me to consider some aspects of the Force, particularly the interconnectedness of things, are inspired by real life, even if it all comes down to more scientifically explainable things, such as quantum entanglements or simply "good timing."

    So, as you might imagine, when Han Solo had that "it's true" line in The Force Awakens, I could only smile.

    I also love that scene in The Empire Strikes Back when Yoda says
    It also resonated with me when Qui-Gon Jinn, in The Phantom Menace, told Anakin, "They continually speak to you, telling you the will of the Force.... When you learn to quiet your mind, you will hear them speaking to you." Them being the midi-chlorians link to the Force.

    I tend to believe all things in the universe are connected (at least physically at the quantum level), and it seems, if we allow ourselves to become more mindful and compassionate, we might stand a better chance of becoming more aware of and participating more harmoniously with that mode of interconnectivity:

    learning to acknowledge and finding a place within that complex flow of reality rather than always trying to exert too much of our own will, allowing life to happen, mysteries and beauties and truths to emerge when they are ready (even if we believe we are not).

    There was something the poet Keats called Negative Capability (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Negative_capability) that I sense is relevant within this understanding.

    The same could be said of the concept of Wu Wei (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wu_wei).

    Amazing that, even here, in this seemingly far-out matter, Star Wars could offer some kind of observation or hidden "life lesson," as in this line of dialogue between Ben and Luke in Episode IV: A New Hope:
    (obi-wan 4)(luke)(blue)

    For the first half of 2012, I was a long-haul truck driver. Bit of advice: Unless driving a truck is your lifelong ambition, do not get into the business. But I digress... I drove from one side of this country to the other and saw a lot of strange stuff, ;) but the strangest thing I saw was in Oklahoma. I was headed east on I-40 one night and I saw what looked like an airplane flying low over some trees next to the highway. I figured there must be an airport nearby so I didn't give it much thought at first. Then whatever it was flew down into the trees and disappeared. Maybe doing some late night crop dusting? Anyway, the next day I went into google maps to see if there was any kind of airport or orchard along that stretch of road, there wasn't. It was just woods. I couldn't tell you what it was, but all I really saw was a bright green light and a glimpse of a fuselage or something that it was attached to. I figure it was a UFO, because, you know, it was an object that was flying and I couldn't identify it... ;) It really could have been anything, but...you never know...
