..... Something very strange happened right in front of my eyes, and being a person who does not believe in anything that can not be explained scientifically, I hope the following occurrence has a scientific or at least a reasonable explanation….
My friends from New York have a daughter who 2 years ago was accepted to UC Berkeley. My friends asked me to keep an eye on her and to chaperon her a bit, so I do..
Her name is Anna, she is now 21 years old, very intelligent, decent, dynamic girl, who also does not believe in “supernatural”.
First year on campus she met the guy of her dreams - Dmitry; not her first love, she had boyfriends before, but her first Big Love. They dated for 7-8 months, and then decided to live together in an apartment. For Anna, besides her school, Dmitry was the main subject in her life.
Dmitry is 8 years older than Anna, in graduate school, and all his friends are much older, late 20’s/early 30’s. I spent time with both of them together, and was left with an impression that he is a very nice intelligent fellow, but Anna is very young, and he is much more mature and it shows, and he lets Anna feel it….. Anna does feel like a “little girl” in his presence who needs to prove herself. She was quite insecure about the “maturity difference”, and not being smart enough around him and his friends.
Eventually the “maturity issue” did take a tall on their relationship; Anna started to feel he is loosing interest and spending less time with her, and instead of “shaping up knowledge wise” and letting him “miss her” by making her self less available, became more demanding and whiny about spending more time together and bugging him “what’s wrong honey”…
Two weeks ago Anna and Dmitry decided to move apart. Anna said she could no longer handle the indifference and could not stand living "like room-mates" with a man whom she loves so much.
When moving out Anna was under the impression that they are not ending it, but taking time apart to see how things will go in the future.
She packed her bags, moved in with friends, and 2 days later went back East to stay with her parents for 4 days. During that time she had no contact with Dmitry, but her parents called me several times, saying she is crying all the time, and thinks of nothing but Dmitry.
Her girlfriend was supposed to pick her up from the airport upon Anna’s return, but could not, so she asked me if I can pick her up instead instead. I agreed.
The girlfriend also told me “I don’t know how to tell Anna, but I saw Dmitry on campus, and he told me that he is dating a new girl….. that girl is a smash, beautiful, smart, really nice….. I hope Anna does not expect to reconcile with Dmitry, he sounds freshly in-love and total bewitched by this new girl.. Maybe you (she meant me) can break it to Anna gently”.
I was not thrilled about such a role, but when I met Anna, while we were driving to her new residence, did tell her that Dmitry has a new girlfriend.
Anna’s new residence is right next to UC Berkeley Campus. I had to park my car in the campus, under the Student Union Building garage to walk with Anna to her apartment with her luggage. We took the elevator from parking into the Student Union foyer and Anna had to use a rest-room.
We walk into the rest-room, it’s empty except for 1 girl standing over a sink, brushing her hair…. I immediately notice the girl, she was special! she is a pretty, elegant, charming being with a great figure, looking like a European movie star….Rachel Weisz’s look-alike, so I thought.
Anna, in a matter of less than a second, abruptly turns to the girl and asks her straight on: Are you the girl who is now dating Dmitry S.?
The girl turns around and replies, surprised, reluctantly but pleasantly: Yes….. and who are you?...... I don’t think we met…. How do you know I am dating Dmitry? We met only one week ago and I have not met any of this friends….
Anna replies “I am Anna”…… The Girl replies… “I am not sure who you are, he did not mention anyone named Anna….. I know he has a sister, but she is older, married and lives in Dallas”….
Anna’s head starts spinning (apparently), she is close to fainting, and I help her and take her out of the bathroom…. She is silent all the way home, asks me to leave her alone when we reach her door. I leave at that time, and learn the next day from her room-mates that she slept for 20 hours straight, and her hair turned a little gray….
Now I am wondering…… how the heck was she able to identify that the girl in the bathroom is Dmitry’s new girlfriend?
I don’t believe in supernatural or telepathy or vibes or any hokus-pokus stuff…… There must be something scientific in all of this……
I know in extreme situations people can exhibit intensified physical strength when facing danger, like a mother holding up a 200 kg tree to prevent it from falling on her child…. But this situation is not about physical strength…
Is there a scientific name for what happened with Anna? I so hope there is…..
Opinions and information would be greatly appreciated!
