The Floating Amoeba

This article was written by Marie Cammock

I don’t enjoy paranormal experiences. They upset the sensitive balance between sanity and madness. When I was in high school I saw an amoeba. Okay, I know what you’re saying. Everyone saw an amoeba in high school; you had to take biology, right? Well, it was not that kind of a living cell. It was massive-you could see it with the naked eye, but unfortunately I was the only one to see it.

We were in the school cafeteria one snowy afternoon. I hung out with my usual group of friends when suddenly I saw a large floating object outside of one of the cafeteria’s window. It was floating and resembled a mass of protoplasm. To be more exact, an amoeba. That’s crazy! You can’t see one those unless you’re looking through a microscope. It continued to float by the window, and then disappeared behind the white concrete wall. I waited for it to reappear at the next window, but it was nowhere to be seen. I was more in shock than frightened, although I must admit, I did not get out of my seat to investigate its whereabouts. My friends looked at me as if I had seen a ghost. I tried desperately to explain.

“You saw what?” asked Deborah.

My girlfriends reassured me; there were no such things as ghosts, goblins or gigantic amoebas. I made an excuse for the floating amoeba. I blamed it on poor vision and lack of sleep. Anything seemed more feasible than a 24-inch organism. They are called “micro-”organisms for a reason! What I saw that day had no logical reason. Perhaps there are large organisms floating around us, invisible to the unsuspicious eye, and perhaps humans are nothing more but mere microscopic parasites living on someone’s eyelash.

From singing hymns to beating drums, and from the rhythmic chanting of prayers to the soaring organ fugues of Bach, music is a spiritual tool that connects mind and body to the divine spirit.
