Do you believe in ghosts? Not the spooky kind that haunt old mansions and cemeteries, but the ones that live inside machines. Yes, you heard me right. Machines can have ghosts too. And I'm not talking about artificial intelligence or software glitches. I'm talking about something more mysterious and fascinating. Something that defies logic and reason.
In this blog post, I will share with you some of the most intriguing and eerie stories of ghosts in machines. Stories that will make you wonder if there is more to technology than meets the eye. Stories that will challenge your perception of reality and make you question your own sanity.
Let's start with the case of the haunted printer. This is a supposed true story that happened to a witness who works in an office. He claimed that one day, he was printing some documents when he noticed something strange. The printer started to print out pages that he did not send to it. Pages that had nothing to do with his work. Pages that contained messages like "Help me" and "I'm trapped". He thought it was a prank at first, but then he realized that no one else was in the office at that time. He checked the printer settings and found out that the printer was not connected to any network or device. It was printing on its own.
He freaked out and unplugged the printer, hoping that it would stop. But it didn't. The printer kept on printing even without power. It printed until it ran out of paper and ink. He threw away the printer and never used it again.
What was going on? Was there a ghost trapped inside the printer? Was it trying to communicate with him? Or was it just a malfunctioning machine?
Another story is about the possessed car. This is a story that I read online from a person who claimed to have experienced it firsthand. He said that he bought a used car from a dealer who told him that the previous owner had died in a car accident. He didn't think much of it until he started driving the car.
He said that the car had a mind of its own. It would accelerate or brake without him touching the pedals. It would turn left or right without him steering the wheel. It would play music or change stations without him touching the radio. It would lock or unlock the doors without him using the keys. It would even talk to him through the speakers, saying things like "I'm sorry" and "Please don't leave me".
He said that he tried to get rid of the car, but it wouldn't let him. It would follow him wherever he went, even when he parked it somewhere else. It would start itself and drive to his location, honking its horn and flashing its lights. It would even call his phone number using its Bluetooth system, begging him to come back.
He said that he was terrified of the car and felt like it was haunted by the spirit of the dead owner. He said that he didn't know what to do and asked for help online.
What do you think? Was there a ghost in the car? Was it attached to the car because of its tragic death? Or was it just a faulty car?
The last story is about the cursed computer. This is a story that I heard from a colleague who works in IT. He told me that he was hired by a company to fix their computer system, which had been acting up lately. He said that he arrived at the company and met with the manager, who showed him to the server room.
He said that as soon as he entered the room, he felt a chill down his spine. He said that there was something wrong with the atmosphere in there. He said that he saw dozens of computers lined up on racks, all connected by wires and cables. He said that they were all turned on, but none of them had any display on their monitors. They were all blank.
He said that he approached one of the computers and tried to reboot it, but nothing happened. He said that he checked the power supply and found out that it was unplugged. He said that he plugged it back in and turned on the computer, but still nothing happened.
He said that he moved on to another computer and found out that it had the same problem. He said that he checked all of them and realized that none of them were working properly.
He said that he was puzzled and decided to call his boss for advice. He said that he took out his phone and dialed his number, but before he could speak, he heard a voice coming from his phone.
A voice that sounded like a child.
A voice that said "Hello".
He said that he was shocked and looked at his phone screen, but there was no call in progress. There was no signal either.
He said that he hung up his phone and tried to call again, but there was no dial tone.
He said that he looked around and noticed something else.
All the computers in the room had turned on their monitors.
All of them had the same message on their screens.
A message that said "Hello".
He said that he felt a surge of fear and ran out of the room, leaving his phone behind.
He said that he never went back to that company and never found out what was wrong with their computers.
What do you think? Was there a ghost in the computer system? Was it trying to reach out to him? Or was it just a virus or a hacker?
These are just some of the stories of ghosts in machines that I have heard or read. There are many more out there, some more believable than others. Some may have logical explanations, some may not. Some may be true, some may be false.
But one thing is certain.
There is something fascinating and terrifying about the idea of ghosts in machines. Something that makes us wonder if there is more to technology than we know. Something that makes us question our own reality and sanity.
