Diver almost lost his head - to a Great White
#1
“Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water...”

- Jaws



This diver almost lost his head when a Great White shark came up behind him and headbutted him from behind.





If the shark would have been up for a little snack he would just had to open its jaws a little bit more and it could have taken this guys head clean off, and he wouldn't have known what hit him.
And look at the size of it!! Horror


Quote:The clip was recorded off the coast of South Africa. The video, which was posted to the SA Spearfishing Facebook page, shows the moment the diver almost ended up becoming an easy meal as the shark passed within mere inches of his head.


“And then I would of had a brown mark in my wetsuit,” the caption reads.

Great Whites are obviously the ones you have to look out for, along with Mako Sharks & Tiger Sharks. But sharks don't generally like the taste of humans so if they do bite, it's more to see what the human is! So the theory goes anyway.

I actually had a sort of ESP experience underwater funnily enough. I was diving at a place called 'Manta Point' in Nusa Penida, Bali. This was a location where the famed Manta Rays are commonly found, as it is a cleaning station for them, where little fish can clean their gills and what not. 

The dive was about to end as our air reserves were getting low and we were getting close to our 'No Decompression Limit'. So we headed back to the entry point, where our dive boat was waiting for us to surface. The visibility wasn't great that day, say about 5-8 meters which is not typical for that site, so that meant it was a little darker than usual. As we were nearing our exit point, I was thinking that it was pretty disapointing to not have seen the Manta's on that day, when I got the distinct impression that I was communicating with something in my head. It felt playful and over the course of 5 minutes as we were heading back, I got 'impulses' of impressions from this 'thought form'. It's quite hard to describe this stuff as it was quite subtle, yet distinct too. Almost like you weren't sure if it was just your mind being all creative, or a genuine experience.

I then remember feeling very clearly, that something was behind me. I turned around and out of the dark water, came SEVEN Manta Rays, who started to swim around our group in an ascending circle. 

I was genuinely amazed in the true sense of the word, though the subtle 'communication' with them before they appeared, if that is what truly was going on, didn't come until later after I was out the water, as realised what was going on.

They swam around us in this amazing ascending circle and we were literally hovering there neutrally buoyant in sheer amazement. Then they split off and decided to play a game of chicken with us! One would swim at you until he/she broke off at the last minute and played with the other Manta's. They were apparently very aware of their positioning and our body space as they never brushed us or bumped into us. Finally they left us to be, and we ascended to the surface and to the waiting dive boat, where we couldn't get the words out fast enough to the others on the surface  Big Grin 

I'll never forget that dive.

Just to give an idea of the size of them. 





Just imagine 7 of them, swimming around you in a circle. Such an amazing interaction with another life-form that it was almost like a 'first contact' so to speak!!

Actually, with the recent 'semi-disclosure' thing going on, which has coincided with a 'change' in the way I perceive things quite a bit - I'm not sure, but this video may be a candidate for a shared synchronicity, if such a thing exists? At least one that other people can follow?

I'll explain.

In the video she mentions that the Manta Rays look like 'Alien Spacecraft' as they go overhead and block out the sun. Now the recent NYT article really allowed a part of me to truly accept the reality of these things, whereas previously I was more skeptical. This led to a 'flurry' of thoughts internally and examinations of my life with things that had happened to me such as the ESP experience with the Manta's. So a couple of weeks after the NYT article, I'm reading what Pollux posted and I think "Hey, I Scuba Dive! I'd love to share my cool experience with the forum about my Manta Ray experience!'

I look around Youtube to find an example of Manta Ray's, as not everyone  is aware of their size and majestic nature. I find this video and it is one of the first to pop up when you do a search admittedly. But I find it interesting that she mentions that in the video, given the timing! Reason why I say it perhaps a shared synchronicity, is that others can verify for themselves, the correlation between the UFO confirmation from the DoD recently and this little hint.

On the other hand, I could just be bonkers  LOL
