All across America there are mysterious places that seem to defy the laws of nature. Places that seem to bend light, defy gravity, scare away animals, twist and contort plant life and cause humans to feel very strange.
There are more than a few such places in America. Some are in the form of hills such as "Spook Hill" in Florida, where cars roll uphill and people and animals strain walking downhill. Others such as "The Mystery Spot" in California offer a little more strange phenomena such as trees being twisted and contorted and other wise deformed. Light seems to bend because objects appear taller in one area than in another. And further, birds and other animals avoid this place like the plague.
The most notable it seems is a place that I have visited myself. This place is known as "The Oregon Vortex". I can tell you first hand that trees are twisted and bent. Birds are afraid to go there, in fact, the place is utterly devoid of animal sounds. It has a strange ghostly quiet that surrounds it. I've seen myself balls rolling up steep inclines, people such as myself standing comfortably at a tilted angle of some thirty degrees
There was a physicist by the name of H. John Lister who performed more that 14,000 experiments spanning forty years. He was also in contact with Albert Einstein, who helped him with his hypothesis concerning the strange forces in the vortex. What's even more strange, is the fact that this scientist burned all of his notes regarding his experiments at the vortex and issued the statement: "The world is not ready for this knowledge."
Many others have guessed and theorized about the strange vortices. Explanations run from magnetic meteorites buried deep under the places to gravity wells or places where the earths gravitational field are distorted in much the same way as on asteroid 243 Ida.
