The Strangest Strangers
By Chris Holly
Over the years of writing about the unknown there has been one story I kept putting off writing as it is by far one of the strangest things I have ever encountered. It is the story of the oddest being I have ever met. I would have continued to pass over this story due to its high strangeness if it were not for a conversation I had with a paranormal researcher I know who told me of a string of strange events he had with a similar odd being. I decided the time was right to write about both of our odd encounters with two very strange beings
As the title states I think of the man I met as a very strange stranger. My fellow paranormal investigator friend described the person he told me about in the same way.
Let me start by telling you what my friend told me about his odd encounters with the man he felt was the strangest person he ever encountered
It was a few years ago and my friend was running a chat room for those interested in the UFO.s and space. He would often notice the name ID of Professor Star joining his chat group however the person did not join in with the others in the chat room.
One night when the chat room was empty this man entered the room. My friend engaged the man to see if he could draw him in to a conversation. The two of them started talking. . The man who called himself Professor Star was a soft spoken man who was extremely intelligent and well educated in the areas of science and space. My friend talked to him for a long time convincing him to return and join in with the others when the chat room was full of people
The man did return but only when the chat room had only one of two other people in it
The man would talk to the people explaining many things to them about the universe . His knowledge was vast and those who spoke with him were always impressed
Soon the man would visit my friends chat room specifically when only my friend and two other people he came to know were there. He would not show up when the chat room was full. Over a few weeks time the three people he choose to talk to decided to form a smaller chat room where they could use their web cams as to see and hear each other in a better environment allowing for a more personal conversation
These private sessions were the strangest conversations my friend and the other two chatters ever encountered with anyone on the internet
Not only were the conversations odd the group of people soon learned via web cam video the appearance of this man was also very strange.
He was a big man with broad shoulders . He did not seem to have much if any neck making his head look like it was sitting directly on his shoulders. He was bald with very small ears and extremely white. His eyes were very large and light colored. He was an extremely odd looking man.
He told the people he had chosen to talk to that he needed them to listen to him as he was going to tell them something hard to believe. He told them that he was one of the last star babies born who were developed in see if it were possible to create hybrid humans who would be better able to travel in space. He told them that he was an experiment as were the other children born to see if they would be better suited to deal with the physical trauma of space travel.
He talked to this group of people about worm holes being a mode of transport through space. He also told them that dimensional travel did happen however humans were not well suited for it
This strange man was very bright but mainly wanted to talk to them about being one of the last of his kind. This strange man was as white as an albino but was not one. He was very smart however also very strange. His voice could have passed for either male or female .His tone was always moderate and with little or no emotion.
He did not want to become involved in any conversation past what he wanted to discuss and would leave as soon as the group tried to question him about his odd appearance or odd message.
Shortly after telling them what he wanted to say he disappeared into the internet wilderness never to be heard or seen again
Of course this could have been an hoax on this group however the makeup and time to make this man appear as he did for only three people seems a bit extreme.
The fact he was extremely educated concerning our universe makes his being a fraud a bit of a strange thing to do for only three people to witness . Why would a highly educated man want to waste his time with only a handful of people ? Once he told the three UFO/space room people what he wanted to say this strange man was never seen or heard from again.
This is an odd story and one that could be passed over with a shrug with those involved or told about it left wondering what he was all about.
I would think it a questionable encounter however I too met someone very similar to the man described to me by my paranormal investigator friend
About 10 years ago chat rooms were far more civil bringing in people who actually wanted to use the chat room systems to discuss topics that interested them . I frequented a few different science topic chat rooms during that time
At the time voice chat and web cams were first being used in the chat rooms. The rooms would draw people who were interested in the subjects and topics of the room titles. If a room was listed as a science room that discussed space or physics that is what you would find the people talking about in the room.
I enjoyed the science rooms as at that time they were filled with intelligent people who understood what they were discussing and offered a great deal of knowledge to those who wanted to understand the newest topics in the field that the chat room represented.
You could sit and listen to scientists from all over the world talk about the newest theories or explain the complex workings of space , time and dimensions to list a few of the subjects that were covered
While visiting the science rooms you would get to know the people who frequented them. I enjoyed the rooms and told a few of my friends who work in science about them. We would all visit the rooms to listen to the debates or views of the interesting people who took part in them
During this time two of my friends and I noticed that a man using the ID Siriusbound would come in almost nightly and sit and listen without taking part in the conversation. Now and then he would text a remark in to the chat room that would always stump the other scientists in the room. This man would not use the voice option and for a very long time was very low key
Finally one night when only a few chatters were in the science room the topic of space travel came up. The man speaking on the voice option in the room was talking about his opinion of space travel discussing rather old views without much modern thinking or science involved
Siriusbound did not agree at all with the man speaking and tried in text to disagree with him. Since most people used the voice option his points written in the room were going unnoticed
For the first time Siriusbound used his voice option and talked to the small room of chatters. The man had a androgynous voice making it difficult to determine if he was a man or woman. He was extremely smart and could discuss every point the other scientists brought up often correcting their facts or thinking. He was impressive and by far one of the smartest if not the smartest participate in the science room
Both of my friends who were highly educated working scientists were very curious about this man and would try to engage him in conversation often .
It was soon realized that Siriusbound would only talk in the room when there were limited people there. As soon as the room filled with people he would simply sit in the background and listen
My friends wanted to talk to this man so I came up with the idea of forming a private chat room with invited speakers only. About 5 to 7 people including Siriusbound were invited to our private room and our trip to high strangeness began
Siriusbound became the most sort after speaker in the private room. The other scientists would wait in line to ask him questions and test his knowledge. Soon it became apparent they were not dealing with any ordinary person. No matter what question he was asked on any subject this man had an immediate factual sometimes incredible answer. That however was not the strangest part of this strange man
While in the small private room Siriusbound would use his webcam to communicate with the small group of people he now felt comfortable with. He would turn on his webcam and talk to the small group of people gathered so we could visually see him as well as talk to him.
We were all rather shocked when we got our first look at this man. Siriusbound was extremely odd in appearance. The only other people I have ever seen who were similar to this man were the unexplained tall albino family with large blue eyes I wrote about who once lived on the Atlantic Ocean coastal area of Long Island New York in the 1960's
Siriusbound was very thin and lanky. He appeared to be about 6 feet tall but could have been taller. He was completely hairless. He did not have a hair on his body. Not a eyelash or eyebrow much less hair on his head. He was completely utterly hairless
Sirusibound had overly large eyes that were brown. The most striking thing about this odd being was that he did not have any pigmentation at all leaving his body as white as fresh snow. At first we thought he was an albino but he quickly told us he was not.
We tried to keep him on the subject of his strange appearance however he would avoid it or give us a nonsense answer like being in a tragic accident that removed all his hair and skin pigment.
He was thin to the point of it being disturbing. He would appear nearly flat when standing sideways. His ears were close to his head and if you watched him long enough his neck would at times seem to sink into his shoulders making him look a human snake. The man was the strangest most alien looking person I had ever seen. This was the opinion of everyone who was able to view him in the private room. His appearance was upsetting
I asked two medical doctors I know to visit the room and look at this man on his web cam. Both doctors were annoyed that I wanted them to do this however both were fascinated by this man once they sat and carefully looked at him
Neither doctor knew of any disease or condition that would present itself with the strange appearance this man displayed
I understand that there may be explanations for this man's appearance however the scientists who were part of this private room , the doctors who viewed him nor I could find one
Siriusbound told us he was not able to go outside during the day as he could not tolerate the sun at all. He spent most of his life indoors
The strangest thing about this man occurred when the small private chat group discussed books or science journals. It did not matter what book was mentioned Siriusbound would quickly turn to the bookcase behind him or reach beyond the web cam view and return holding the book we were discussing up to the camera.
At first we all thought he simply had a extensive library of popular books but soon learned something far stranger was going on. No matter what title we would mention this man would display the book. Soon the scientists in the room would make great efforts in mentioning titles of journals or books that were extremely rare or unknown and still this man would step away returning with that journal or book in his hand
This strange man had a incredible science background and could talk about every subject brought up by the other scientists . During one of the private chat room gatherings one of the people brought up the subject of chimera's. At the time I did not know the meaning of this term but that did not last long. The moment it was mentioned Siriusbound jumped on the voice option and explained it fully
He did not hesitate or even blink an eye he simply went directly in to the subject explaining it in full as a mix of two different DNA's mixed to become one person or creature. It is why a handful of people in the world have one blue and one brown eye. They were to be two different people or twins when developing and one fetus absorbed the other instead forming one baby with two sets of DNA
Of course this is a simplistic description of the subject of chimera's but it gives you the idea. The fact is that at the time years ago this was not a known subject yet this man was fully versed about what it was and how it worked
It was like this all the time with Siriusbound. He was incredibly smart with what seemed to be the largest library of books owned by anyone we had ever known.
The book situation gave way to long discussions when Siriusbound was not around concerning how he was pulling off showing every book we mentioned on his web cam.
The scientists involved thought he may either be in an office in an actual library however that was decided against since he would show us immediately whatever title we talked about discounting the library theory. This idea was decided against as he was never gone off of the web cam view more than a few seconds which did not allow enough time to retrieve each book we discussed from a large library. This man would walk off from the web cam view and return immediately with the book we mentioned in his hand
A great deal of thought and discussion was given to the idea that he somehow was able to group hypnotize those in the chat room in to thinking they were seeing the books when in fact he did not actually have the books.
The small group of people who took part in this private chat room knew they were dealing with a very strange being . His actions, knowledge and appearance was unlike anything we had ever seen before
The encounters with this man ended abruptly one day when my friend and I were alone in the chat room with this man
He told us it would be the last time we would be seeing him as it was his time to leave. When we questioned him to where it was he was going he stunned us with his bizarre answer
He told us he was returning to his home far away as his mission was over here and it was time for him to return to his own kind , his family and his home. He told us it was his mission to live here and watch our culture but his mission, which had lasted many years ,was now over and he could finally go home.
While he talked to us at this last meeting we both were shocked as we watched this man on his web cam . His neck would seem to lose length and form and his head would slide down onto his shoulders giving him a very snake like appearance. Frankly this frightened me and I sent a private message to my friend who was also watching this man on the web cam at the same time
My friend is a scientist , a physicist, and told me not to panic or turn off my web cam connection. . He told me to keep watching in fact to not take my eyes off of him and to try to remember everything we were seeing.
I did what he said and listened with care as this strange stranger talked about how he was leaving and watched as his body melted into different forms and how he would become aware of it and pull himself back together again to only start to melt down again. It was the strangest most bizarre thing I have ever seen
This odd man said good bye to us , turned off his web cam and left the chat room. That was the last any of us who belonged to that private chat room ever saw of him
Of course we talked about the encounters we had with this stranger for a few weeks after his last appearance in the room.
Those who saw him and spoke with him all agreed he was the oddest being they had ever had contact with. His knowledge on all things was astounding. The oddity of his displaying every book or Journal we mentioned was incredulous
The appearance of this man will stay with me forever. He was so white, so hairless, with large dark eyes and a long thin body. I do not know how he was able to walk around in public without a great deal of attention. I assume he wore clothes that covered him along with hats and sunglasses. He would appear to be an albino if he covered his large dark eyes. The fact he was hairless including the absence of eye brows and eyelashes would only be noticed if he removed his hat and sunglasses.
I do think his time walking about out in the world was limited however the people who lived around him had to be curious about this odd mans appearance. . I discussed this with my friend the physicist . He thought it was possible we were somehow mind controlled or shown a hologram and never were seeing this man as he actually appeared in the first place. He also thought it was possible he was not a human and could have been some other type of life form. who simply wanted contact with a group of humans
I know all of this sounds really strange and hard to believe. All I can tell you is that this did happen and he did appear to us as I described and did do the things I have told you
I have no idea what or who this stranger was. I have no idea how or why he looked as he did or knew what he knew. For years after our encounter with this strange stranger we talked about him and the possibilities of what and who he could have been and how he did the things he did
He disappeared after that last visit. One of the members of the private chat room claimed he had the address of this strange man which was located in the southern part of the United States. The chatter claimed he sent him an article and that the strange man displayed via web cam that the mail did arrive by showing him the article he has sent him. This is where the strangeness of this man goes beyond strange to high strangeness
Once this man told us he was leaving the man who sent him the article sent him a note in the mail. The note was returned stamped no such address. The man then tried to locate the address he has sent the article to on Google Earth. What he found was a large open field with nothing around it. He tired reverse look ups with no luck at all. Finally he called the Post Office that belonged to the zip code to be told no such address existed. The man was truly confused as how the strange man could have received and shown him the article he mailed to an address that did not exist!
I admit this is a very strange story. I may not have believed it if it had not happened to me. I think many strange strangers are walking around with us daily all over this world. Maybe it is time we all pay close attention to who and what surrounds us so one day we will all understand who or what these strange strangers are
Be careful out there . You never know when you will be the next to find you are looking straight in to the eyes of the unknown! Know if there are two strange strangers out there - there must be many more of them seeking the attention of many more of us!
