    I really wish there was a credible source of research into phenomenon like this, parapsychology, cryptozoology, all those fields have been rendered the territory of kooks and charlatans in the popular mind.
    All for ourselves, and nothing for other people, seems, in every age of the world, to have been the vile maxim of the masters of mankind.

    whether or not you credit psychoanalysis itself, the fact remains that we all must, to the greatest extent possible, understand one another's minds as our own; the very survival of humanity has always depended on it. - Open Culture

    Thumbs down Misdirection

    The sense of the weird or the uncanny can be produced at will.

    It is possible to design a trance that produces the sense of the uncanny or weird.

    So the sense of the uncanny or weird is an entirely natural phenomenon.

    Of course those who wish to manipulate and control us tell us that the weird and uncanny has a mystical source.

    This is known in the business as misdirection.
