Default How and why do things fall with nothing touching them?

Iím in bed - itís around 410am and I hear my daughters step stool thing fall.
I know itís that because itís plastic and when you grab the handle it collapses flat.
And I know the sound

It was laying against the wall by my fish tank and she helped me feed the fish around 830 or so.

My daughter is asleep, as am I
And goddamn that thing fell.

Why ?
How ?

Anything like that ever happen to you ?
Annoying and .... I donít care ... scary as chit sometimes.

You need to rent a SB7 spirit box, a tape recorder, night vision cameras(3) and at least 4 LED sound detection devices.....wait till night time, turn off all of the lights and make statements that sound factual and ask questions. Ask ďdid you hear that?Ē a lot.

In the morning, be very serious and review the tape recording. It will require perseverance, you might have to slow the recording down and play it backwards. Ultimately, you will hear in the static what sounds like an entity saying..............







ďgravityĒ

We call him Justin. Even the dog stares at something in the dark when everyone else is asleep. No need to worry as long as no one has been hurt. We have had things move, we've all seen things.

the earth rotates, gravity, the earth's plates shift and tremble,volcanoes, wind blows, trucks and trains cause vibration, and sometimes ghosts push stuff around to show us that there is an afterlife

My folks had a house where the bedroom light switch would flip up on it's own.
My mother went screaming the first time it happened.
LOL.

Here in CA, if things aren't moving, the big one already happened and we are floating off towards Hawaii.

The magnetic field of earth is in a state of flux.

The north and south poles are switching as happened in the past.

Or it could be it just fell.
