I saw the hat man. This is not a lie or fabrication. I really saw this. As a child I was laying in the lower bunk of a bed I shared with my younger brother. I was about seven years old. I was looking across my room toward a foyer where the entrance to the New York apartment was located. Just beyond and down the hall was my parents' room. Across from the entrance door which had all sorts of security devices including a dead bolt various key locks, a chain, and even a steel rod that slid into a socket in the floor, was the kitchen area.
I sat there one night staring in front of the entrance,which was lit very brightly by a small night light. I stared at some tiny mice that jumped around a small bag of garbage next to the kitchen entrance or threshold.
Suddenly, it appeared. It was not a man, but some kind of entity. I mean it was totally black like a two-dimensional figure, but it did have the outline of a man wearing a derby. It carried a briefcase and a cane. It simply traversed the metal door and stood there for a moment, in plain sight. It was so black that it literally "popped-out." Then it looked around both ways. I was frozen with absolute fear. Then it walked into the kitchen and that was all.
I have been traumatized ever since.
There is something going on that no one knows about. Some claim to know, but I think they are lying. What is really remarkable is that many years went by then one day I decided to Google images and I typed "hat" and "man." I could not believe that others had witnessed similar things. I even saw a picture of it on the net.
Whatever it is, it is indeed a phenomenon. My intuition tells me that these beings are slaves of some sort, and that they work for an evil source.
I also had another experience , but with an invisible one. This other experience has led me to believe that there are some beings out there that do not have our best interest at heart. This particular one laughed at me with a very arrogant , diabolical, and condescending manner. It literally held me in a state of fear, and it seemed to feed of this fear. It had the ability to move in my dimension as an invisible force.
So as you can imagine, except for my feeble faith in God, I am perpetually afraid.
