SLIders: "Electric People" That Can't Be Explained

Street Light Interference Phenomenon

Now this is a new phenomenon that has been reported by many people including me… Well ill start with my experience, Every night when I drive home the same street light always turns off soon as I’m next to it and even when I park my car in the driveway the other light magically turns off.. It happens too often to be labeled as a coincidence. So i decided to do some research on this subject and I found that it’s not just me; it happens to a lot of different people across the web… Even the mainstream media has reported some of the people’s experiences.. Wikipedia also has a page on it… Below ill include more information about this phenomenon..

Some people dismiss this theory by stating that the street lights cycle on and off when they’re about to burn-out.. But many people say it happens way too often to be claimed as a “dead lamp.” The theory is that little electrical impulses in the brain are causing interference with the control box. They have done tests on many of these people that claim this ability, and they found out they couldn’t recreate the effects. (They state that it’s not in their ability to control this phenomenon.)

You wont read about this phenomenon in scientific journals because people can’t purposely trigger these weird effects.. This affects women and men of all ages and backgrounds, But the most common thing between these people is that they have a lot of psychic energy. Now during research they found out that when these people are extremely angry, or happy (Extreme Emotions Only) is the only time when they can trigger street lights to go out, or make electronic devices freak-out… Now this might seem cool to the average person but in reality it’s an expensive pattern that won’t stop! (Think of all the things they have to replace)


They call these people: SLIders…. They are people who have no particular interest in the paranormal events and are unwilling to tell others due to being ridiculed in the past. They are often relieved to find that others share their ability. This phenomenon doesn’t occur with all street lights but it seems more are susceptible than others. The general rule of thumb is about 20 meters away from street lamps and electrical devices.. Many skeptics claim that this is a normal process of lights to cycle on and on.. Another idea is that the light sensors are being triggered by on-coming cars.. Scientists believe that many of these occurrences are nothing but a coincidence but the believers of this phenomenon believe that something is happening that cannot be explained by our incomplete science!

A List of Unexplained Occurrences

  • Appliances such as lamps and TVs go on and off without being touched.
  • Lightbulbs constantly blow when the SLIder tries to turn them off or on.
  • Volume levels change on TVs, radios, and CD players.
  • Watches stop working.
  • Children’s toys start by themselves
  • Credit cards and other magnetically encoded cards are damaged or erased when in their possession

  • Research

    A research project into SLI was conducted by Dr. Richard Wiseman at the University of Hertfordshire in England. In 2000, Wiseman made the newspapers with a project to test ESP with a kiosk-type machine – called The Mind Machine – that he set up in various locations around England to collect a large amount of data about the possible psychic abilities of the general public.

    Hillary Evans, an author and paranormal investigator with The Association for the Scientific Study of Anomalous Phenomena (ASSAP), also studied the phenomenon. (You can download the original SLI Effect book in PDF format by Hilary Evans completely free from their website.) She established the Street Lamp Interference Data Exchange as a place where SLIders can report their experiences and share those of other SLIders. [The existence of this exchange cannot be verified at this time.] “It’s quite obvious from the letters I get,” Evans told CNN, “that these people are perfectly healthy, normal people. It’s just that they have some kind of ability… just a gift they’ve got. It may not be a gift they would like to have.”


    Stories From External Websites


    I’m a streetlamp person myself and so is my partner. I tend to turn them off in sequence, more than one at a time, when I’m driving or out for a walk and I’m kind of in a trance or daydreaming. (I don’t daydream when I’m driving, but often my mind will automate the task and my reflexes and I’ll be in a state of contemplation of something else while my body takes care of the gas pedal and wheel. It’s sort of meditative.) This is when the streetlights go off the most.

    I once delivered some bad news to my boyfriend at work. After about ten seconds of extreme emotion, the fire and burglar alarms in the building we were in went off spontaneously and the monitoring system claimed that the fire was directly above the room that we had been sitting in. Obviously there was no fire. It took hours for the relevant authorities to get the systems back to normal because they kept going off until we left the building. This was a problem since we were there to lock up and couldn’t leave until the alarms were settled.

    I can always sense other “electric” people. I had a theory that it had to do with auras after I saw photographs of plant auras and a description of them as being simply electriv fields that everything possesses. I started learning how to see auras and became quite good at it.

    I also can’t keep a watch running for more than a few months. Mine never start working again once dead.

    I seem to have an affinity for certain electrical devices. I can almost always predict accurately what the next song will be on the radio as the current song is ending. I tend to pick up the phone to call someone and find them on the line about to dial my number. How we connect without either of us dialing is a mystery to me. I’m also quite intuitive when it comes to computers, although this is hard to explain. If there’s a problem with my machine I just sit and think about it for a second and the answer, however obscure, will pop into my head.

    I’m fascinated by these accounts of alien implants that I read about on this page. I’m interested in taking the test for implants and I have to wonder if that’s why I have such an intense aversion to shows about those grey alien critters. Hmm.

    Well, I’m notorious for blowing light bulbs. I can’t even tell you how many, but we can never keep stocked up. But my real problem is, when I’m mad or REALLY MAD I not only blow bulbs, but I zapp any electrical thing I’m around. The tv will shut off, or change channels or volume, depending on the level of “mad” I’m in.My computer will freeze and refuse to let me even pull up the log in page. But my friends, especially my best friend, really hates being around me when Im angry, I zapp them and, well, they’re getting angry back at me now, but if it goes up a notch between us, I zapp them and it comes back and zapps me. That’s usually when I go off by myself to calm down. I go thru spurts where lampposts will go off when I go under them and come on when

    I move away.My pets hide, not that I’d do anything to them, but you can feel the energy around me intensify and animals are sensitive to things like that. I’ve made my computer lock up three times in the 6 months i’ve had it. It’s really been active since I got married 14 years ago. I zapp the phone and pick it up and start talking to someone. Now that one freaks my husband out still. I’m not “allowed” to do it, but sometimes, without thinking I just reach for the phone and my husband goes for a ride.I hope this is the kind of stuff you were asking for . But I saw a chance to tell someone about this and read about others in the same kind of boat. How weird.

    For some reason I destroy electronics. If I touch a computer it crashes, especially if I’m frustrated. Modems, Zips, Cd players. When visiting my friend in Az he said “Well you’ve been here five minutes and every light in the house blew”. I think it involes my emotional state most of the time. If I’m angry or anxious, things detinate around me. It is strange.

    Unlike most of the reports I’ve read here where people encounter negative effects I have an unusual ability that is quite positive for me. I am an electric lift truck mechanic and many times when I arrive at a vehicle breakdown I find nothing wrong and the vehicle operates flawlessly, even when three or four other operators verify that the lift won’t run all I do is try the controls and it runs.When there is an actual burned up componentI can usually locate it immediately without the manual or running any tests, I just open the access doors and I am just drawn to the trouble spot like a magnet. Also when I get an indescribable caution feeling when driving I know to slow down and look around because there is a radar setup somewhere. I never have any problems operating any kind of electrical devices when nearly everyone I know has certain problems now and then. I feel blessed and never try to use it or figure it out I just let it happen and follow along.
