Mystery Of The Black-Eyed People
– Why Are They So Different From The Rest Of Us?
They have been encountered world-wide. Their eyes are solid black, with no white showing…Who are they and why are they so different from the rest of us?
There are many stories of encounters with strange beings who appear to be inhuman because of their unusual eye color and odd behavior. People who met these individuals had a weird sense of dread. Are there rational explanations for these remarkable encounters or do perhaps aliens walk among us?
Can you judge a person by looking in his eyes?
Some say that your eyes are the window to your soul. Have you ever met anyone whose eyes are nothing but complete darkness? Those who encountered black-eyed people say not only are their eyes dark, but their whole beings as well. It is, as if the their souls are enveloped in darkness. In the world of paranormal, we often hear of people who had encounters with the most remarkable beings.
Perhaps the most bizarre and uncanny stories involve the mysterious black-eyed people.
There are of course many people who have dark eyes. We often meet people who have dark brown eyes and we certainly do not find these persons strange.
However, black is not a natural eye coloration. The white part of a human eye is called the sclera and it comprises 5/6 of the outer surface of the eye. Every healthy person, regardless of race has a white sclera. Animals, on the other hand can have a very dark sclera. Dogs, horses and lizards for example often have a black sclera. Health problems can sometimes cause the sclera to become yellow. Certain medication like eye drops can result in that the sclera becomes transparent. When the appropriate administration of medication form has been completed the sclera returns to white again.
People who met black-eyed beings claim these individuals had solid black eyes with no sclera at all! In other words, these beings’ sclera, pupils and iris are completely black! What is most interesting is that people are not only affected by the black color of the eyes, but also these beings’ peculiar attitude and behavior. They are different…
Based on eyewitnesses’ descriptions we learn that the black-eyed beings share some common characteristics: People who had encounters with black-eyed beings were overwhelmed with a sense of intense fear. It was as if these beings should be avoided at all cost.
Another common characteristics often reported by witnesses is a sense of evil.
In some cases, people reported that the black-eyed individual had olive colored skin.
It seems difficult to determine a pattern in their clothes. Sometimes they are dressed in black, and on other occasions they wear various colors. In some reported incidents, the black-eyed people were dressed in clothes that appeared old-fashioned.
Let us examine what some who met the black-eyed people had to say. One of the eye-witnesses, Chris and her husband were traveling on I-75 in Michigan when they decided to make a stop at a rest area. Coming out of the women’s room, Chris came face to face with a thin, dark-haired woman with black eyes staring directly at her.
“My husband and I were on our way up north on I-75 during the afternoon. Luckily, it was not at our normal time in the evening. We have a little place in northern lower Michigan, and often go up there for the weekends. As was our custom, we pulled in at our usual rest stop, and I went into the women’s restroom.
As I was preparing to leave the room, I suddenly noticed a thin, dark-haired woman standing alone and starring directly at me. I instantly felt a terrible sense of dread, as though there was something deeply unnatural about her. I then noticed the eyes which had been staring coldly at me, and they were completely black. I saw no color whatsoever, and no pupils. I felt an extremely strong need to get away from her as quickly as possible, as there was something quietly threatening about her. Her stare was devoid of any emotion other than something very cold and disconnected.
My instant and unwavering feeling during this whole experience was that she was not human. I don’t know what me made feel this so strongly, but it was my most singular, strongest sense while looking at her. There also was something almost predatory about her, as though she was homing in on prey while she stood there so still. I also had a strange sense of her feeling superior or stronger in some way. Again, the sense of a predator watching its prey.
I left as quickly as possible, showing as little reaction to her as possible. It seemed important, for some unknown reason, for me to act unaffected by her while in her presence. I felt a huge sense of relief as I got back into the car and left. I have to say that this was one of the most memorable brief experiences I’ve ever had around a person, especially a stranger. I have never been able to shake the inexplicable feeling that she wasn’t human,” said Chris.
Another curious account comes from Tee, a 47-year-old apartment manager in Portland, Oregon.
Tee who worked for 20 years is used to meet people of all races and ages, and yet when he encountered a young black-eyed man, she simply could not come to terms with the stranger’s eyes…
“He was young boy of about 17 or 18, approximately. He asked me about an open apartment for rent. I remember feeling very scared and shaken by his appearance.
He did not look weird by his dress or such. It was his eyes.
I remember feeling the hair on my neck stand up, and I was shaking just from looking in his eyes.” Like Chris, Tee also felt that deep sense of malevolence. “I could not look him straight in the eyes. I felt like I was about to die. Now, some people may think that I was just over- reacting or something, but the eyes were completely black like there was no real pupil. He spoke normally to me, but I had to just shut the door in his face and get as far from him as I could. I felt like I was in extreme danger,” Tee. explained.
A very interesting case comes from Australia. This story is about a strange man seen in an elevator in a bank building, as told by the bank executive who worked late that evening:
“I found to my surprise that a few people have had similar experiences regarding people with pitch-black eyes. Unlike some, though, I didn’t feel a sense of dread or a feeling that I was about to die. I felt more an awareness and discomfort, like when you see someone advance angrily toward you only to walk past you.
Anyway, it was September 2, 2000, and one of the roles as an executive is you sometimes have to put in really late nights. My office was on the fifth floor and it was coming up to 12 in the morning. I was the only employee, as far as I know, on the first five floors apart from Ben, another fellow banker on my floor and Stan, who is a security officer.
The elevator stops at floor 2 and in comes a tall man with more or less a black crew-cut. The first thing I did was open my mouth to ask what sector he was from and who gave him permission, but as I looked into his eyes they where entirely black. The pupils, the retinas everything. I remember not really being spooked about his eyes. To be honest, I just thought he might’ve had a disability in his eyes. As the elevator slowly starts up moving back on route, he asked me where I was going, and I simply replied, “home.” He then asked why, and I more or less laughed and just said I want to go to sleep and see my wife. He then just mummered very softly, like he was talking to himself, “It must be nice to have a home.”
I figured he was just being friendly and that he must be renting. As we got to B1, I realized he hadn’t pushed the button on where he was going, so I asked, “Where are you going?” to which he replied rather angrily looking at me with his creepy eyes, “Nowhere.”
At this point, the eyewitness stated he ran to his car. When he looked behind him, he noticed the strange man in the elevator did not get out. He continues on with his account:
“Now the real freaky part. As I drove down the street, all the lights were out – and this is in Sydney (city of NSW). Then I turn… and guess who is walking just ahead of the car – our favorite black-eyed man! No need to say, I sped home, probably breaking five road laws. How could he have left the building and be ahead of me when he had no car, and went up to floor 6?
It gets weirder. On the videotapes and records, there shows no one using the elevator at that time apart from me.”
In many cases people who encountered black-eyed children feel an almost indescribable sense of fear. These children appear to be different from other normal kids.
This incident took place in Abilene, Texas. A journalist was sitting in his parked car late at night writing a check to pay an internet bill. Suddenly, two children approached him for help, knocking on his car window. They were asking for a ride home to retrieve money from their mother to see a popular movie, at the movie theater close to the parked vehicle. Only one of the boys spoke to the journalist.
But why were the children asking for a ride home when the final showing of the film was already half over?
According to the eye-witnesses statement:
“C’mon, mister. Let us in. We can’t get in your car until you do, you know.
Just let us in, and we’ll be gone before you know it. We’ll go to our mother’s house.” We locked eyes. To my horror, I realized my hand had strayed toward the door lock (which was engaged) and was in the process of opening it. I pulled it away, probably a bit too violently. But it did force me to look away from the children. I turned back. “Er … Um …,”
I offered weakly and then my mind snapped into sharp focus.
For the first time I noticed their eyes. They were coal black. No pupil. No iris, just two staring orbs reflecting the red and white light of the marquee. At that point, I know my expression betrayed me. The silent one had a look of horror on his face in a combination that seemed to indicate: A) The impossible had just happened and we’ve been found out!” The spokesman, on the other hand, wore a mask of anger. His eyes glittered brightly in the half- light. “Cmon, mister,” he said. “We won’t hurt you. You have to LET US IN. We don’t have a gun.”
That last statement scared the living hell out of me, because at that point by his tone he was plainly saying, “We don’t NEED a gun.” He noticed my hand shooting down toward the gear shift. The spokesman’s final words contained an anger that was complete and whole, and yet contained in some respects a tone of panic:
“WE CAN’T COME IN UNLESS YOU TELL US IT’S OKAY. LET … US …. IN!”
I ripped the car into reverse (thank goodness no one was coming up behind me) and tore out of the parking lot,” recalled the man from Texas.
