OMAHA, Neb. — A man in Omaha claims he saw a “strange young man with weird eyes changing shape” Wednesday in plain daylight.
R. Green, 56, told Cryptozoology News he was taking a package to the post office when the event took place.
“I parked the car two blocks away from the post office. I come out of the car, grab the package and start walking toward the building,” he said.
Green reportedly noticed a young man walking in front of him. “He just showed up there, I didn’t see him coming. It’s like he came out of nowhere. A young guy, probably about 18 or 19, long black hair, very tall and skinny, he was wearing one of those long black coats. He came at me and as he got closer he stopped and asked me for a dollar. I told him I had no money.”
But the witness says the stranger became persistent and started asking for something else.
“He kind of began arguing with me, kind of violent. He asks me if I am married…and other stuff, I thought he had mental problems, so I tried to ignore him, I said ‘sorry I gotta go now’, but he insisted. He’d cut me off and wouldn’t let me walk through.”
That’s when Green says things turned “ugly”.
“Then as I try to pass through the guy, his eyes start turning black, completely, kind of like a layer of skin, but it was completely black. You know like the crocodiles eyes? Only they were black, solid black. My first reaction was that he had contact lenses or something. His voice turned deeper and I freaked the hell out. He began asking about my family, and my wife, and he asked about my mom, who died a few years ago. His hair was long, but it grew back and became short all of a sudden, maybe he had a wig, I don’t know. It went from his shoulders to behind the ears. He kind of became an adult man, old looking. I looked around and I saw an old lady staring at him too, and as soon as I looked back at the kid, he began walking toward the building wall on my right, and he disappeared. I asked the lady ‘ma’m did you see that?’ She was as surprised as I was, we waited there for a while, looking at the wall, talking about it.”
Green believed the young man had entered the building through the door, “but there was no door”, he said. “The guy walked right through the wall. I know it is crazy, but I saw it. I can’t explain it. It was like an illusion.”
The ability to transform into another form is known as “shapeshifting.” The concept appears to be universal and, according to folklore, it has been present for as long as humans have inhabited this planet.
“It’s one of those archetypes. Most cultures have made use of it at one point or another,” says Amit Chandrasekar, anthropology professor at an Indian University. “Sometimes you have to go back in time in order to understand what we are looking at here today. Most of these unexplained sightings are simply brain memories. They are so embedded within the human psyche that they are basically impossible to get rid off. A lot of this began happening in the sixties and seventies when people experimented with drugs without any restriction. It was worse in the United States, it became the norm.”
Remarkably, Green pointed out that he doesn’t do drugs or alcohol and that the last time he took any “sort of prescription medicine” was ten years ago.
“Why would I lie about this? I know it sounds crazy, but I saw what I saw.”
A paranormal school of thought proposes the interdimensional hypothesis, which suggests these visitations could be part of entities traveling through different layers of reality –dimensions–.
