Don't know if you'll read this after 4 years -- but I think the time you thought you saw a man in your room you experienceing "sleep paralysis" which many researchers believe is the phenomenon that people have when they see shadowy figures standing over them and at the same time they feel paralyzed. It is believed that this accounts for people believing they have been abducted by aliens. What's really going on is that the body and mind aren't in sync while waking. The mind is awake but the eyes aren't fully awake and see shadows and the motor cortex is still totally zonked and you can't move.View Thread
