So, this thing happened at work that I still can’t comprehend.
One morning at 7.50-ish am I was walking to the building where I work. The ground floor reception has large glass windows that span almost the length of the wall.
Each morning I have a habit of looking through these glass windows to check what floor the elevators are on. We have 3 elevators, it’s not relevant to the story but I thought I would chuck that information in.
One morning, I habitually checked what floor they were on. One of the elevators was already waiting on the ground floor, ‘perfect’ I thought to myself. I walked around the side of the building, through the revolving doors and pushed the elevator button. (Keeping in mind that all this takes about 10 – 15 seconds, depending on how leisurely I’m walking.)
The doors for that ground floor elevator opens. And out walks a person, A PERSON.
We greet, and as step into the elevator I just think to myself, ‘whhaaaa?’ Was that person just standing in the elevator for no reason? Waiting for the doors to open? What were they doing there? How long have they been stood in there?
The same thing happened again about 2 weeks later with a different person! I just don’t understand.
The only logical explanation is that the elevators are magical in some sense, a portal maybe, or maybe this is proof that we are living in a simulation and not all humans are real (i.e. these people are just ‘extras’) and just wait for us ‘real’ humans to come across its path? Because you know, these ‘extra’ human simulation characters are only activated when a ‘real’ active, human character crosses its path.
But yeah, coming back to reality, I still have no idea what I witnessed and what to make of it. And it’s way too awkward to just ask these people what they were doing in the elevator.
