If you are watching television and the signal cuts out to static, turn it off immediately. If you watch this static long enough, it will suddenly pause. All sound in the room will drown out; even the white noise will disappear. If this happens you must not look away from the screen. You will probably not have noticed at the time, but before you lose your gaze on the TV, your body will have frozen. The time around you has paused completely. Specks of the black and white dots slowly come back to life, creeping in random directions, organizing themselves into a moving picture in front of you. As the static returns to normal and the white noise arrives again, only then will you regain control of your body.
It is rumored that if one continues to watch the static again, or during their prior experience, looks away, the white and black specks will slowly start to move again, but you, however, will not. Your eyes will then be permanently fixated on the screen as you watch what appears to be the return of the signal. You will soon learn that this is not the case, as all sounds are still absent and the picture on the TV shows a familiar surrounding: the room in which you sit.
