This is the first time the public has heard Cosby’s voice since his imprisonment.
“What I’m about to tell you is not something that I think is something in the cosmos, or spiritual or something,” he said. “For the first time ever in my life, I was sitting and I was relaxed.”

“I am unsighted,” he continued. “So, I took my hand and I was about to pick something up and my index finger went across — and I’m telling you the truth, this is not a joke and I’m very proud to tell you this at this time. My finger went across my navel.”
He seems to be aware of the absurdity of his story as he links it to his deceased mother: “When it went across, there was a throbbing, and that I think we’ve all had them in the muscle, some muscle will go ‘TICK TICK’ something like that,” he said. “‘TICK TICK.’ I put my finger back there to it — now, this is all subjective, I’m saying to myself, my mother, who is dead. Not that she was contacting me, my mother [was] calling me or trying to reach me.”
