    Some uncertainty due to being confined to 6-second glimpses...

    But everything in the scene looks static except for the one vehicle flashing by. The latter could be edited in over repeat frames of the still image used as a background. Or like dancers who freeze themselves, she might have been capable of that, if the video isn't a fabricated product.

    Insufficient data on which to base an opinion.

    Video is not reality. Video has glitches. 'nuff said.

    (Frankly, I can't even see any video on that page. I see a still shot of a woman on a sidewalk. No video clip. Still, until someone can explain why it's not just a video artifact, it's not worth chasing down.)

    Scroll down to the video in the article.

    Finally found it on YouTube. Might want to turn the sound off beforehand if there are kids around, or you're in a public place.

    If the video embed doesn't work, just click the link above it. (EDIT: the "explanations" video also included now.)

    Thanks, CC! It's not opening for some of you, in the article? Hmm...

    I don't get it. What is "freezing time"? The woman is walking as if she has cerebral palsy. The video is jerky but I don't even get what they are trying to convey with "freezing time"?

    Medical conditions are yet another possible explanation. Oliver Sacks wrote about patients who would freeze in motion or move like time had dramatically slowed down.

    Oliver Sacks: I would often see my patient Miron V. sitting in the hallway outside my office. He would appear motionless, with his right arm often lifted, sometimes an inch or two above his knee, sometimes near his face.

    When I questioned him about these frozen poses, he asked indignantly, “What do you mean, ‘frozen poses’? I was just wiping my nose.” I wondered if he was putting me on.

    One morning, over a period of hours, I took a series of twenty or so photographs and stapled them together to make a flick-book, like the ones I used to make to show the unfurling of fiddleheads. With this, I could see that Miron actually was wiping his nose -- but was doing so a thousand times more slowly than normal.

    [...] These standstills were especially severe with Hester Y. Once I was called to the ward because Mrs. Y. had started a bath, and there was now water overflowing in the bathroom. I found her standing completely motionless in the middle of the flood.

    She jumped when I touched her and asked, “What happened?”

    “You tell me,” I answered.

    She said that she had started to run a bath for herself, and there was an inch of water in the tub…and then I touched her and she suddenly realized that the tub must have run over and caused a flood.

    She had been stuck, transfixed, at that perceptual moment when there was just an inch of water in the bath.

    Such standstills showed that consciousness could be brought to a halt for substantial periods while automatic, nonconscious function—maintenance of posture or breathing, for example—continued as before.

    Oh, thanks.

    I'd like to change my answer. That's not a video glitch.

    It's totally staged.

    Give-aways:
    1. The overly-theatrical wiggly-waggling of the camera is a ploy to make it look like this is a real, candid video.

    2. Her "frozen" state has both feet on the ground. In other words, there is nothing inexplicable about her simply posing like that for this shot.

    3. One thing she cannot fake is the inertia of accelerating her arms from motionless to motion. It does not happen instantly because that would be impossible.
    Ergo, this is staged by the cameraman and the actor.

    On the one hand it's a pretty subtle thing to stage although I agree the video is an attempt to convey something that isn't really there.

    The biggest clue that it's "staged" is that it's shot by someone in a car taking a picture of a woman walking down the street (why?), in a direction that is away from him and then saying "WTF" thus over exaggerating his reaction. He is looking through a phone camera at a women who is several blocks way.

    In reality you would barely be able to see her and why would you be looking with all that interest in the first place and how could you be so surprised at anything you thought you saw from several blocks away? In addition, your first reaction would be "I think she froze in time"?

    Not a glitch or video effect, just someone pausing on the street like they forgot something or got a rock in their shoe, maybe saw something in a shop window.

    Agree with all of these “interpretations” of the video.

    Seattle - exactly! What’s so unusual about a woman walking down the street, pausing for a couple of seconds, and then continuing to walk? Why would anyone care to record that moment? It’s most likely staged. I don’t believe in “alternate universes,” “time travelers,”and “glitches in the Matrix,” in general.

    My cat actually does this..a lot. He’ll stop in the middle of the room as though he’s frozen, and then after 20 or so seconds, he’ll start walking again. Maybe my cat is from another dimension.

    A video that shows a women standing still and then walking... employing Occam's razor, the only explanation is the supernatural.

    So, this is still going on?

    I would refer to my prior remarks, ca. December, 2021↗.

    Or, here's an excerpt, just because:

    "Glitches in the Matrix" is a pop-culture extrapolation of a twentieth-century science-fiction film about being transgender. That is, the Wachovski sisters borrowed an old philosophical bit, called The Cave, and created a commercial monster. If you're hearing about it only more recently, it's because a new episode just arrived, and you're experiencing a market effect. It would be like someone saying they only recently heard of flying saucers, and if we tried to figure out how that works, it turns out they knew of ufos in general, but thought they were all triangular, or something. Post-cinematic parlor philosophy built around The Matrix enterprise was always pretty weak, but I also find myself recalling what a "meme" was supposed to be, once upon a time, compared to its sordid, post-chezburger installation as an international lowest common denominator in a pop-art race to the bottom. Comparatively, it is ironic, but also worth noting in its own context, that the most persistent legacy of the Matrix philosophical implication turns out to be manpilling, the comparative bickering between masculinists who have taken their figurative blue, red, or black pill.

    In the past, these "glitches" have been attributed to divinity, extraterrestrials, communications satellites, and even a form of lucid dreaming a person could actively invoke and control. The question of "glitches in the Matrix" is, to the one, nothing more than what Barker reminds, that each age will tell the tale as if of their own making. To the other, though, is a subtlety having to with infliction by an apparently sinister cause; it's kind of like observing that neither Jews nor atheists speak so poorly of God.

    The video you mean?

    Did you even ...

    No, you didn't bother to watch the video in the OP, did you?

    Do you ever not complain?

    No, really, Dave, what the fuck is wrong, this time?

    I suspect you're more comfortable with me in the role of enemy?


    I feel like the only one ruing not only the passage of the 'Sci' in SciFo but now the imminent death of the 'Forums' in SciForums.

    I am still raw from the zany ramblimgs Write4u and Axesperia and you're doing this ^

    It's just becoming a daily blog for those who like to write their thoughts out in long form, damn the guidelines about topicality and a semblance of dialogue.

    I submit we rename it to blog.com
