Physicists are claiming that Ball Lightning is simply a trick of the mind. They are suggesting that Lightning might stimulate the brain to hallucinate, and see bright balls of light within the eye itself. Let me tell you of my experience.
When I left college I bought a large run-down granite-built house in Wales, just over the border from North Shropshire. This ancient house had once been a pub, and it came complete with cellars and stories of missing people. None of which has anything to do with my tale.
It was a rather spooky house, and one night I awoke to see a large football-size ball of light, suspended in one corner of the bedroom. The ball was blueish and very bright, but gave off no surrounding light. I remember turning to Lady Magnon to see if she was awake, and the light certainly did NOT follow my eye (sorry physicists; you're wrong). I continued to look at this strange phenomenon for some while until I simply returned to my sleep.
I've spoken to several people about my experience, and have been assured that Ball Lightning is quite a common occurrence. Personally I'd never before heard of such things, nor have I experienced it since. I'm convinced that our physicists with their hallucination theories will have to think again.
Busy - Mr Pudding Sent me this update on the book today which I will accept with a wry smile. There may only be one or two here that will understand just how ...
