Where Do Our Thoughts Physically Exist?

Philosophers have wondered for ages how mind and matter relate to each other, and modern physics is chiming in on the debate. Here’s a look at a few theories about where or in what way our thoughts physically exist.
 
Noosphere, Related to the Internet

Teilhard de Chardin, a Jesuit priest and paleontologist, wrote of a conceptual “noosphere” in the first half of the 20th century. He predicted that at a future stage of humanity’s development a membrane containing our collective thoughts and experiences would envelope the world.

In “The Phenomenon of Man,” he wrote: “Is this not like some great body which is being born—with its limbs, its nervous system, its perceptive organs, its memory—the body in fact of that great living Thing which had to come to fulfill the ambitions aroused in the reflective being by the newly acquired consciousness?”

Many have made a connection between De Chardin’s noosphere and the Internet. Could the Internet be considered a realm in which our collective consciousness exists?

Thoughts Exist in Other Physical Dimensions

Bernard Carr, a professor of mathematics and astronomy at Queen Mary University of London, says our consciousness interacts with another dimension. Albert Einstein stated that there are at least four dimensions. The fourth dimension is time, or spacetime, since Einstein said space and time cannot be separated.

Carr reasons that our physical sensors only show us a 3-dimensional universe, though there are actually at least four dimensions. What exists in the higher dimensions are entities we cannot touch with our physical sensors. He said that such entities must still have a type of space in which to exist.

“The only non-physical entities in the universe of which we have any experience are mental ones, and … the existence of paranormal phenomena suggests that mental entities have to exist in some sort of space,” Carr wrote.

Our Thoughts Transcend Time?

Dean Radin, PhD, has done studies to show our thoughts may have an effect on physical reality, but it may not be in the present or future as we expect. It is possible that our thoughts in the future affect our past reality, he says.

Radin is the chief scientist at the Institute of Noetic Sciences, a non-profit organization founded by Apollo 14 astronaut Edgar Mitchell and dedicated to consciousness research. Radin is also adjunct faculty in the department of psychology at Sonoma State University and he has held appointments at Princeton University and several Silicon Valley think-tanks among other institutions.

He has tested the ability of human intention to affect physical reality using a random number generator (RNG). He is not the only scientist who has used an RNG to test mind-matter interaction, but he is unique in his focus on the ability of future intentions to affect the past.

Most RNG tests focus on a forward-in-time, standard cause-effect model. A person has an intention and it is expected to affect the future result, or number generated. Radin opened his experiment to the idea that a future intention may affect past results and found “the observed results may be better modeled as a process running backwards in time from a future ‘target,’ rather than as a more complex process running forward in time trying to hit that target,” according to his study published in the Journal of Scientific Exploration in 2006.

“Some forms of apparent MMI [mind-matter interaction] may involve processes that are more consistent with retrocausal ‘pulls’ from the future than with causal ‘pushes’ from the present.”
 
Vast Realm Between Particles

Stanford University Professor Emeritus William A. Tiller hypothesizes that our thoughts have a physical effect on a “new level of substance … which appears to function in the physical vacuum (the empty space between the fundamental electric particles that make up our normal electric atoms and molecules).”

He says he has been able to measure this hitherto invisible substance, but only when it interacts with the substances we can conventionally measure. This interaction seems to occur when spurred by human intention, suggesting our thoughts physically exist in this realm.

Flying Triangles in 1965
By Nick Redfern

As many students of Ufology will be aware, the last couple of decades or so have seen a rise in reports of one particular type of UFO. It has become known as the Flying Triangle. The FTs are triangular in shape and very often black in color, hence the name, of course! They often emit a low humming noise, and have a trio of lights on their underside. They usually have rounded corners too, rather than sharply angled edges. And, in some ways, they are not unlike the Northrop Grumman B-2 Spirit (otherwise known as the Stealth Bomber) in design. This has, quite naturally, given rise to the possibility that the FTs are next-generation Stealth planes, rather than true UFOs. It’s not an unreasonable assumption. But there’s a problem with that scenario: the FTs are actually not new, or even recent, at all.

While digging through a whole host of formerly classified files on UFOs at the National Archives at Kew, England in 1996, I came across a one-page report dated 28 March 1965 that, I confess, I almost overlooked. On closer inspection, however, I realized that it was potentially one of the most important UFO-related documents that I had ever come across. According to the MoD paperwork, on the night in question a witness saw at approximately 9.30 p.m. over moor-land near Richmond, North Yorkshire, England: “Nine or ten objects – in close triangular formation each about 100ft long – orange illumination below – each triangular in shape with rounded corners, making low humming noise.”

Interestingly, as noted in the first paragraph of this article, the “rounded corners” and “low humming noise” are precisely what many witnesses to Flying Triangle-style UFO encounters are reporting today – in a world-wide capacity, no less.

Recognizing the significance of this, I made a photocopy of the document and set about locating the witness, who is named in the files, I should stress. This did not prove to be a difficult task. I introduced myself and explained that I had located at the National Archives a copy of the original report that dealt with his sighting all those years ago. It is fair to say that the man was shocked, to say the least, to find that details of his long-gone encounter had been kept on file by the MoD for more than thirty years.

“Yes, I did send in a report all those years ago, but I didn’t think they would have kept it all this time,” he told me, with astonishment in his voice. As he explained, on 28 March 1965 at approximately 9.30 p.m., he had been driving through the North Yorkshire moors. On approaching the village of Skeeby, near Richmond, however, the engine of his car began to splutter and die.

“It was a 1951 Ford,” he states, adding with some humor, “and it was a good car but a bit unpredictable at times. I didn’t want to break down on the moor because it was icy cold and the nights were still dark. I got out of the car to have a look at the engine and that’s when I saw this light.”

He continued: “At first, because it was so dark, I wondered if it might be a weather balloon. But then I had a good look at it over the hedge and realized how big it was and how low down it was. It was about one hundred feet from end-to-end, about one hundred feet above the moors and shaped like a huge triangle and white, milky-white in colour.

“It kept coming towards me and then stopped about two hundred yards from me over the moors. It hovered for a while – nothing came out of it, but there was a light below it that just pulsated like a light bulb. There could have been quite a few lights on it but from a distance the light just looked like a glow. Then without a warning, it just took off at a speed that isn’t recognised. Good gracious, I thought, it must be a UFO!

“As it shot up, not vertically but at an angle, it joined a group of others that were identical and that were in a triangular or V-formation. The others were very, very high; a whole fleet of them. They all then headed south, I think, at a tremendous speed and disappeared over the horizon. I saw the main one for no more than a couple of minutes,” he recalls, “but after they had gone I was still stood by the moor watching this fleet disappear. I waited in case something else exciting happened, but of course it didn’t.”

triangle-ufo-above-carCuriously, shortly after the encounter, and after having reported the incident to the Ministry of Defence at Whitehall, the witness began to notice “awful red marks on my skin which were like a stretch mark, but they were like a deep salmon red and they kept coming and going. But I didn’t have them before.”

The most bizarre angle of the entire episode was still to come, however, as the man now graphically illustrates: “For about eighteen months after the sighting, I would get strange telephone calls from people. These would be every two or three months. They just phoned out of the blue but didn’t introduce themselves. They just said they were from some bureau or other. They didn’t mention the name of the bureau but kept mentioning ‘sightings’ and asked whether I had seen anything else strange. Had any men come to interview me?”

The witness was never visited by anyone with regard to his Flying Triangle encounter, nor did the MoD ever offer an explanation as to what it was that he saw on that fateful night in March 1965. He was, however, unnerved by those mysterious telephone calls – primarily because aside from informing the MoD of what had occurred, he made no other report (either official or unofficial) with anyone and kept the details to himself: “The only report I ever made was the one I sent to the MoD. It was so exciting that I had to tell someone.”

This important testimony raises a number of vital questions. Why was someone so determined to find out if the witness had received any strange visits with regard to his encounter? Why the interest in knowing if he had had any other unusual encounters of a UFO nature? And most important of all: who was his mysterious caller?

Finally, if as some researchers contend, the Flying Triangles are a relatively modern day creation of the military, how is that an entire squadron of them – right down to the triangular shape, the underside-illumination, and the low humming sound – could have been seen flying over England almost 50 years ago?

Discovering the True Nature of UFOs and the Jinn - Part 1
By Timothy Green Beckley

UFO researchers are just beginning to understand what independent movie makers in several countries have recently capitalized on – that there exists a mostly invisible race of beings who live beside us undetected that are said to be nefarious for their trickster-like pranks, who can create mental and physical havoc in our lives and can shape-shift to take on many disguises and forms.

These beings have been said to have been created out of fireless smoke at the same time mankind was made out of clay (the Earth) and angels were produced from light (energy). They are most widely known in the Islamic culture, but their calculating and often wickedly abusive behavior is felt throughout the world, even if we are not familiar with them.

Some say they could even be flying the unknown objects we commonly believe to be UFOs or extraterrestrial vehicles.

THEY ARE BEST KNOWN AS THE JINN (or DJINN) and we should be mighty leery – perhaps even afraid – of them!

Those in the UFO field who have begun to treat these “creatures of the night” seriously include the “First Lady of UFOlogy” Ann Druffel and the “Queen of the Paranormal,” Rosemary Ellen Guiley. John – “Mothman Prophecies” – Keel also spoke about them but referred to them as beguiling “demons,” while New England-based science teacher Philip Imbrogno lost a certain degree of academic credibility due, at least partially, to his investigation into these denizens of darkness. 

In my book, ROUND TRIP TO HELL IN A FLYING SAUCER – UFO PARASITES, ALIEN “SOUL SUCKERS,” INVADERS FROM DEMONIC REALMS, I rightfully credited Briton Gordon Creighton, a past editor of the legendary “Flying Saucer Review,” as having drawn the conclusion – now gaining  popularity among rank-and-file UFO folks – that these pesky, shadowy figures of the Islamic faith could be behind some of the close encounters reportedly made with humanoid creatures and may even be the key to the UFO abduction phenomenon.

In a 1990 edition of the “Flying Saucer Review,” Creighton pulled out all the stops when the magazine published what was certainly a very controversial article for that era.

The piece was called “The True Nature of the UFO Entities.” 

CHIEF CHARACTERISTICS OF THE JINN

As one would expect, Creighton begins by giving some background information on the Jinn that might not be familiar to those who have not studied the Koran or are familiar with Islamic religious tradition. In Christian terms, we might think of Jinn as demons or goblins, but deeper study shows that these elementals are a bit more complex.

The chief characteristics of the Jinn are:                                                                     

1. In the normal state, they are not visible to ordinary human sight.

2. They are, however, capable of materializing and appearing in the physical world. And they can alternately make themselves visible or invisible at will.

3. They can change shape and appear in any sort of guise, large or small.

4. They are also able to appear in the guise of animals.

5. They are inveterate liars and deceivers and delight in bamboozling and misleading mankind with all manner of nonsense. (See the average Spiritualist séance for examples of their activities, and also the usual “communications” from UFO entities in close encounter cases.).

6. They are addicted to the abduction or kidnapping of humans. (The Scotsman Robert Kirk, who wrote “The Secret Commonwealth” in 1691, evidently “knew more than was good for his health,” and was killed by them.)

7. They delight in tempting humans into sexual intercourse and liaisons with them, and Arabic literature abounds with accounts of this kind of contact by mankind with both the “goodies” and the “baddies” among the Jinn. There are even a considerable number of accounts of encounters between the “goodies” and famous Muslim saints.  

8. The Jinn are wont to snatch up humans and teleport or transport them, setting them down again – if indeed they ever do set them down again – miles away from where they were picked up, and all this is the “twinkling of an eye.” (See my first article on Teleportations, about the Spanish soldier who, on October 25, 1593, was suddenly taken from Manila in the Philippine Islands across the Pacific to Mexico City. In FSR Vol. 11, No. 2, 1965).                                                                                                       

9. The Arabian tradition asserts that, throughout all known history, there have been a few particular human beings who, through some strange favor, have “been in league with the Jinn” or “had a compact with the Jinn” – to such a degree that the Jinn have endowed them with what we regard as “preternatural powers” – i.e., psychic powers. These humans have consequently become known as wonder-workers, soothsayers, and magicians . . . Either “white magicians” or “black magicians,” depending of course upon what sort of Jinn they were in league with.                                                              

10. Along with all these displays of prowess by the Jinn there goes, finally, a tremendous telepathic power and the ability (to use an age-old term) to cast a glamour over their human victims. Our UFO records are already full of evidence of this.

THE TRUE NATURE OF THE UFO ENTITIES

The very credible and astute “Flying Saucer Review” editor, now deceased, states his opinion that, “One of the more curious features of the followers of the various religions is that, being so dogmatically certain that in their own particular little faith they already possess the whole truth about all things in Heaven and Earth, it almost never occurs to any of them to look elsewhere and find out what the followers of other religions may know or may have discovered. This is certainly a pity, for study of all the great world religions – and notably Islam, one of the world's great religions – yields valuable clues as to the true nature of the “UFO Phenomenon.” Islam knows, in fact, of the existence of three entirely separate and distinct species of intelligent beings in the Universe, and indeed can furnish surprisingly precise details regarding their natures and roles and activities. Angels, Men, and Jinn.”

Creighton says he cannot say for certain where the Jinn might be hiding, but in his opinion it might not be too far away. “The source of the Jinn is not very distant from us, yet at the same time somehow very far from us. In other words, on some other dimension, or in some other Space/Time framework, ‘right here,’ some other Universe that is here, behind Alice's mirror: ‘a mirror-universe on the other side of the Space-Time Continuum,’ as it has been neatly put by some investigators.”

This entire matter can be seen as pretty much a head-scratcher, admits the editorial director of the famed UK pub. “Although the Koran is not clear on this, it looks as though some of the Jinn could be fully physical and what we call extraterrestrials, while other species of them are of an altogether finer sort of matter, corresponding to what various UFO investigators have tried to indicate by such terms as ‘ultra-terrestrial’ or ‘meta-terrestrial.’ In thinking about these ideas, we might bear in mind the theory of the Russian philosopher P. D. Ouspensky regarding the possible existence of other, more subtle, levels of matter on which the elements of the Periodic Table of our own chemical world are repeated – and, if I understand him aright, repeated more than once, on more than one level. The early writings of Dr. Meade Layne in the USA about the ‘Dense Etheric World,’ from which he maintained that the UFO entities and their craft originated, should also be borne in mind. His book, ‘The Coming of the Guardians,’ was published in 1958 and may prove to have been very important as certain of the benevolent Jinn may well be our ‘Guardians.’”


- REMOTE-CONTROL MADNESS DEPARTMENT -

Airliner Nearly Collided With Drone Above Florida

An American Airlines Group Inc aircraft almost collided with a drone above Florida earlier this year, a near-accident that highlights the growing risk from rising use of unmanned aircraft, the U.S. air safety regulator said.

The pilot reported seeing a small, remote-control aircraft very close to his plane while preparing to land at Tallahassee Regional Airport, said Jim Williams, manager of the Federal Aviation Administration's Unmanned Aircraft System Integration Office.

"The airplane pilot said that the UAS was so close to his jet that he was sure he had collided with it," Williams said at an industry conference on Thursday, referring to an unmanned aircraft system.

The aircraft, operated by an American subsidiary, did not appear to be damaged when it was inspected after the March 22 incident, Williams said.

But the incident served to highlight the risk of remote-control aircraft, he said.

"The risk for a small UAS to be ingested into a passenger airline engine is very real," Williams said. "The results could be catastrophic."

The FAA currently bans the commercial use of drones in the United States and is under growing pressure to set rules that would permit their broader use. Hobby and many law-enforcement uses are permitted.

Last year, the agency began establishing test sites where businesses can try out commercial uses. Two of the centers have started working ahead of schedule.

"The FAA is working aggressively to ensure the safe integration of unmanned aircraft systems into the national airspace," the agency said in a statement.

The March incident was reported to the Tallahassee control tower by the pilot for Bluestreak Airlines, a US Airways commuter carrier. US Airways is part of American Airlines.

The plane, a Bombardier CRJ-200, was a traveling from Charlotte, North Carolina, to Tallahassee.

It was at 2,300 feet and about five miles from the airport when it encountered the remote controlled jet. The FAA investigated but could not identify the pilot of the drone.

American said it is "aware of the published report alleging an incident with one of our express flights and we are investigating."

The airline said it would share any information with the FAA and would not comment further.

The incident was first reported by The Wall Street Journal.

In his address to the Small Unmanned Systems Business Expo in San Francisco, Williams also showed videos of several drone accidents, including one in which a drone crashed into a crowd during the running of the bulls in Richmond, Virginia, last fall.

The crash was caused by a battery failure and resulted in minor injuries, he said.

Williams also noted the "Miracle on the Hudson," in which birds hit the engine of a flight leaving New York, prompting an emergency landing on the river.

"Imagine a metal-and-plastic object, especially that big lithium battery, going into a high-speed turbine engine," he said.

- FROM THE DARK DEPTHS IT CAME DEPARTMENT -

The Green-Clawed Beast of Evansville
By Kyle Germann

Indiana, often called the Crossroads of America, isn't exactly a state known for its monsters or much in the way of paranormal activity. However, something truly strange and terrifying happened along the banks the Ohio River in late summer during the mid-1950s. To this very day, people are still unable to explain exactly what happened. But all that they know is that a local woman nearly lost her life to a vicious aquatic monster. That monster has come to be known as the Green-Clawed Beast of Evansville.

August 21st, 1955 was a typical hot summer's day in Dogtown, Indiana (near Evansville). Both locals and tourists alike were headed for the local lakes and rivers to take a swim and cool down. Among them was Mrs. Naomi Johnson, her children Sandra, Darwin, and Darrell, and her good friend Mrs. Chris Lamble. Mrs. Johnson told her children to stay put while she and Chris went out for a swim.  Mrs. Lamble went out with a big, black rubber inner tube, as she couldn't swim. Naomi and Chris talked while they were leisurely swimming, but little did they know that something was closely watching the two women underneath the water...

Mrs. Johnson was only fifteen feet from the shore when she felt a "large, hairy, claw-like hand" grab her around the left knee and pull her under. Naomi struggled to free herself from the unseen attacker as Mrs. Lamble looked on in horror above the water's surface. Mrs. Johnson was finally able to kick herself free from the creature's clutches and made it back to the surface, taking in a huge breath of air as she did so. But almost immediately, Naomi was seized again from behind. Mrs. Lamble shrieked and screamed loudly as the Johnson children watched helplessly from the shore...

Naomi wrestled with her unseen attacker in the murky water, desperately trying to free herself and get back to the surface for air. She managed to get herself free and made for Mrs. Lamble's inner tube. She gasped for air and screamed at the top of her lungs for help, but at that instant, the creature seized her by the leg and pulled her down once more. Kicking and screaming, Mrs. Johnson was able to break away for the final time and lunged for her friend Chris's inner tube. She made a thump upon contact with the tube, and this apparently frightened the attacker enough to drive it away.

With the aid of Mrs. Lamble, Naomi managed to make it ashore in a state of shock, crying and screaming all the while. To their horror, it was discovered that her leg was covered in deep, bloody scratches and bruises. But what troubled Naomi, her children, and their friend Chris the most was that her leg was covered in green palm stains where the beast had seized her. Somebody had called an ambulance, and Mrs. Johnson then received medical treatment for her cuts and bruises. Naomi was hysterical after the attack, and her husband was called home from work. He then called a doctor, who administered sedatives to help calm the poor lady's nerves. But although the attack was over, Naomi's ordeal was far from finished...

The next day, a local newspaper ran Mrs. Johnson's story. Several eyewitnesses allegedly reported seeing a silver oval disk floating a few hundred feet above the water that same day. The Johnson family themselves reported that they were visited by a man who claimed to be a Colonel in the U.S. Air Force. The Colonel seemed to be very interested in Mrs. Johnson's story, and he took extensive notes on the case as he interviewed and questioned her. Before he left, the Colonel told Naomi that she could never repeat her story to another person ever again (which, strangely enough, reeks of an attempted government cover-up and bears some similarities to Men in Black encounters). The man then left the house and didn't bother the Johnsons again.

Mrs. Johnson later found out that the strange green palm stains on her leg wouldn't wash off, and the stains didn't disappear for several days (suggesting that the stains were more akin to bruises rather than being mere stains). Naomi later said that "Whatever this thing was, it had a strong grip and was very furry. All I know is that I will never go swimming in that river again." And for the rest of her life, Naomi never did so again. And to this day, these strange evens are still as yet unexplained, and the case itself remains unsolved. And yet, there are questions that still remain...

This bizarre encounter begs the question: what did Mrs. Johnson encounter on that day in the river? Although shocking, this may be one of the only monster encounters where the creature wasn't actually seen by the eyewitness, but was rather felt instead. But what is clear is that the beast had great strength, was quite possibly both reptilian and amphibious in nature, and was extremely aggressive towards humans, possibly to the point of viewing people as a food source.

This evidence  has led some researchers to believe that the Green-Clawed Beast is an amphibious reptilian monster of some kind, while others think that this creature may have been extraterrestrial in nature. However, the evidence in this case seems to point to a more terrestrial, possibly even supernatural sort of creature.

The native tribes of North America have legends of reptilian humanoid creatures going back several hundred years. The Creek Indians of the Carolinas, for example, speak of the Inzignanin. According to Lyle Blackburn's incredible book Lizard Man: The True Story of the Bishopville Monster, the Inzignanin are a race of amphibious, lizardlike humanoid creatures with a distinctive three-foot tail that is described as being "as thick as a man's arm" and "as hard as bone." They had long fingers and rough, scaly skin.

These reptilian creatures lived entirely on a diet of raw fish, and thus when the local fish population could no longer support their numbers, the Inzignanin died out...or so it is said. Could a small number of these creatures have survived and managed to find new territories? Possibly. If these creatures followed the major waterways, one of them could have easily ended up in that section of the Ohio River alongside Evansville. But if this is not the case, then where else could the Green-Clawed Beast have come from?

According to paranormal researcher Chris McDaniel, a type of strange blue mud was found on Mrs. Johnson's leg right after the attack. This mud was sent to a lab and analyzed, and it was discovered that this blue mud came from the deepest reaches of rivers. In fact, it was only found in deep underwater caves.

Is it possible that some form of unknown aquatic reptilian monster dwells deep within these underwater caves? Most of the world's oceans, lakes, and rivers remain unexplored by man, so it is a distinctive possibility that an unknown species or unnatural beasts do dwell within the deep places of the world. Furthermore, Mrs. Johnson noticed that her attacker's hand had large claws and felt furry.

In his excellent book Mothman and Other Curious Encounters (2002), leading cryptozoologist Loren Coleman noted that the creature's hand might have actually been scaly instead, for there are no known species of aquatic mammals or primates with furry, dexterous hands (Coleman 93-94). It remains a leading theory that the Green-Clawed Beast was an aquatic reptilian humanoid of some sort.

It is interesting to note that in 1954, a year before Mrs. Johnson had her encounter with the Green-Clawed Beast, Hollywood's Universal Pictures released the now-classic science fiction/horror film, The Creature from the Black Lagoon. This film tells the story of a team of scientists who travel up the Amazon River to the "Black Lagoon," a place that is dreaded by the locals and from which none ever return. These men and women are searching for the fossilized remains of a Devonian "fish-man," only to encounter a living specimen of this creature. But after the film was released, there was an explosion of sightings of these reptilian "lizardmen". Could this be a coincidence? After Jaws was released in 1975, there was a similar outbreak of shark attacks. However, when it comes to things like monsters, there is really no such thing as coincidence.

To this very day, the case of the Green-Clawed Beast of Evansville remains unsolved and a fascinating mystery. Even world-renowned cryptozoologists like Loren Coleman and Lyle Blackburn don't have all of the answers. Perhaps there are mysteries best left unsolved in this world, and mayhap that this is one of them. Strange reptilian monsters continue to be seen by ordinary people to this day. One has to ask: what are these people seeing? Perhaps that is a question best left unanswered, for the truth may be far too disturbing to be heard...

(I would like to take this opportunity to thank Loren Coleman, Lyle Blackburn, Jerome Clark, Michael Newton, Bart Nunnelly, and Brad Steiger for all of their help and allowing me to use their books and other materials in my research. Without their help, this entry would've been very short. Thank you all, and I hope that you are very pleased with my work!)

What's Behind Reports of Ghost Sex?
By Benjamin Radford

Last year it was pop superstar Kesha; now it’s actress Natasha Blasick — star of “Paranormal Activity 2? — coming forward to talk about her sexual experiences.

With ghosts.

In an interview on UK’s “This Morning” show and quoted in the “New York Daily News,” Blasick described her paranormal paramour: “I could feel that somebody was touching me and the hands were pushing me against my will and I could feel the weight of the body on top of me. I couldn’t see anybody but I could feel the pressure, the energy, the warmth pushing in different directions.”

While many might consider this sort of experience terrifying, Blasick described it as “really pleasurable” and was delighted when the unseen entity made a return visit a month later.

Claiming to have sexytime with ghosts is rare but not unheard of. In his book “The Terror that Comes in the Night,” folklorist David J. Hufford estimates that about 15 percent of people experience being assaulted in their sleep by an unknown entity at some point in their lives, often with a sexual element. In a 2012 radio interview with Ryan Seacrest, pop star Kesha talked about the inspiration for her song “Supernatural,” which involved “having sexy time with a ghost.”

Reports of supernatural lovers can be found in folklore dating back thousands of years. In his book “Satanism Today,” James R. Lewis, professor of religious studies at the University of Wisconsin, notes that “While condemned to hell, [Catholic saint] Thomas Aquinas asserted that demons would float in the air until the day of judgment in the form of incubi (male demons) and succubi (female demons)… Aquinas believed that demons could seduce human beings, particularly in the dream state. He further speculated that should a succubi conceive after having intercourse with a man, the result would be a giant, like the Nephilim mentioned in Genesis 6:4.”

Others believe that the succubus is neither ghost nor demon but instead a fairy. Folklorist Carole Silver, writing in “Strange and Secret Peoples: Fairies in Victorian Consciousness,” writes of a particularly evil type of fairy, the “Lhiannon-shee of Ireland and the Isle of Man, a figure that fascinated William Butler Yeats among others… that  simultaneously embodies the male fear of the female as dominating and anarchic and the widespread anxiety about women as parasites. Best known of the Manx fairies… she is really a succubus, draining the life and energy of the man to whom she attaches herself.”

For many this is not merely myth but instead a very real experience; Silver describes one supposedly real-life account of “one brazen lhiannon-shee, in 1898, followed a farmer right into his house and was thought, by the man, to be his wife. Puzzled when she did not answer his questions, he asked his actual wife if she saw the fairy woman, at which, with a hideous grin, the shee walked through the door and vanished.”

While it’s impossible to know what, exactly, Kesha, Blasick, and others experienced, some psychological phenomena can give the impression of a sexual ghostly lover. These experiences—sometimes scary, sometimes sexy, but always realistic to the person experiencing them—are the result of normal brain misperceptions and illusions.

Often the sexual feeling happens late at night in bed (instead of, for example, while commuting or raking leaves). Many people feel these sensations either while sleeping, or going into or out of sleep. Psychologists know that this is a time when people are vulnerable to common (and harmless) hallucinations—including sexual experiences. Few people who are visited by these seductive specters complain about it, so if you experience it, there’s little to fear.

- GIVING A VOICE TO THE ELF COMMUNITY DEPARTMENT -

The Elf Whisperer of Iceland
By Kevin Fallon

Ragnhildur Jónsdóttir wants you to know that she’s not crazy. She’s gone to a doctor, two actually, to make sure. She just wants to save the elves. After all, they’re her friends.

“Of course lots of people look at you a certain way, like they’re wondering, ‘Are you crazy?’” Since she was a little girl, Jónsdóttir has had the ability to see and speak with elves. That means that, since she was a little girl, Jónsdóttir has been dealing with our side-eyed judgement.

Draped and wrapped in a series of scarves and sweaters with a loose braid of graying hair cascading down her shoulder, Jónsdóttir looks every bit the part of “The Elf Lady.” She’s sipping coffee while glancing out the window at the Elf Garden just outside of Reykjavik, Iceland, where she and her best friend Pulta, an elf woman, give tours of the hidden people’s community of houses, which are rocks. “You know what they say, if everyone else thinks you’re crazy, then maybe you should look inside yourself and see what’s happening,” she says. “So twice I went to see a doctor. I had to be sure myself, to make sure I wasn’t crazy.”

After a lifetime of speaking with the huldufólk (hidden people), it’s been years since Jónsdóttir has questioned the sanity of her eyebrow-raising gift. But after recent headlines spotlighting the lengths to which she’ll go to save the elves, strangers from all over the world once again are questioning it for her.

Last December, Jónsdóttir was among roughly 25 people arrested for protesting the building of a road through the ancient Gálgahraun lava field, about 10 minutes outside Reykjavik. The road would provide a more direct route from the country’s capital to a semi-remote suburb on a nearby peninsula that houses, among other things, the president’s residence. The road would also mean bulldozing Ófeigskirkja, a large lava rock that is one of Iceland’s holiest elf churches.

“When the elves came to me and said, ‘Are you ready to be a kind of spokesperson for us,’ and I said, ‘Yeah, sure,’” Jónsdóttir starts, before hushing into a whisper, “They didn’t mention police!”

“It was a story to tell to the grandchildren,” she continues, laughing as she recalls the day she was arrested. But it’s with pride. Later that afternoon, she’s back at Ófeigskirkja, this time she’s not in a stand-off with the bulldozer, but walking right past it as she shows me the site where the rock will be moved. Yep—Jónsdóttir and her fellow protestors, named “Friends of the Lava,” succeeded. The government will, later in May, pay to move the rock out of the path of the road, a compromise that will both preserve the elf church and allow the road to be built as planned.

The whole affair, from the cause célèbre behind the protest (Save the Elves?!) to the government’s eventual acquiescence, is indicative of the unusual and complicated relationship Iceland has with elves and other hidden people. Jónsdóttir was advocating for the lives of invisible tiny beings that most of us associate with building Santa’s toys…and the government listened.

Yet she’s not crazy. And neither, apparently, is her country.

Take, for example, a 2007 poll that revealed that 54 percent of Icelanders don’t deny the existence of elves. The kicker, though, is that only eight percent said they believe in them outright. The results belie the nuance that is locals’ relationship with elves. It's not that the entire country believes they are real and tip-toes around in a constant state of anxiety, should they accidentally step on an unseen elf. But they, overwhelmingly, respect the idea that they may be real, and certainly respect the people who believe that they are.

Spend enough time in Iceland and you may even grow tired of hearing the same story, said with the same wink, of how roads in the country are often rerouted around one rock because it is believed that elves live there—were the stories not so charming. Icelanders attributing lost car keys to mischievous elves is as common as the rest of the world crediting a prayer to St. Anthony with finding those keys, and said in the same half-sincere, half-in-jest tone. A 2009 Vanity Fair article made waves when it revealed that an aluminum company named Alcoa had to wait for the government to scour land that a smelting factory was about to be built on for the presence of elves before construction could begin.

Then there’s the famous case in 2010 when then-Icelandic Parliament member Árni Johnsen got to into a brutal car crash but survived without major injuries. He suspected the elves that were said to live in a nearby boulder with saving his life, and when a road was later planned that would mean destroying the rock and the three generations of elves that called it home, Johnsen had the rock moved to a safer location—his own property.

Jónsdóttir herself cited a 2011 study conducted by the University of Iceland that showed that 37 percent of Icelanders said elves possibly exist. What does that mean? “There’s no way that 37 percent of the nation is crazy!” she says.

The rest of the world, however, may disagree. And even if they don’t find the belief crazy, they do find it incredibly curious, near to the point of obsessive fascination. That’s at least part of what brings hordes of tourists each year to Jónsdóttir’s Elf Garden for tours and explainers on the huldofólk. It’s also what gets them to purchase copies of the book sold there, What Does It Take to See an Elf?, which is by an elf named Fróði—he dictated it to Jónsdóttir and she transcribed his story.

But even if the tourists are snickering at the start, there’s something about being in Iceland, or even just listening to Jónsdóttir talk, that makes you not exactly believe that elves are real, but at the very least believe in the people who say that they believe they are. It may sound a tad convoluted, but it’s an important distinction.

“I’ve never met anyone here, at least, who really laughs out loud,” Jónsdóttir says. “And people come from all over the world. I’m not trying to convince anyone to see things the way I do. I ask them to open up their heart and let their inner child out while listening to these stories. It’s much more fun. They don’t have to think, ‘How can an elf live in a rock?’ Then when they go back to their hotel they can use their grown up logic.”

But even in a land where a large portion of people believe in the existence of elves, there are still only a very small number who claim to actually be able to see and speak with them. Ragnhildur Jónsdóttir is one of them. But why her and not anybody else?

 “I have often thought about this,” she says. “You know, we can all do different things. Some people can sing, dance, or build houses. And some people see elves. We are all different.”

It was early on when Jónsdóttir’s family began to realize just how different she was.

When Jónsdóttir was just 2 years old and was beginning to talk, her mother put her in the car and closed the door, causing Jónsdóttir to burst into tears. “No, no! Pulta! Pulta’s outside!” her mother told her she cried. When her mom opened the door to let Pulta in, she stopped crying.

“My mom says there are so many stories and so many incidents that a 2 year old doesn’t have the imagination or the skill to make up,” Jónsdóttir says. “And now, all these years later, Pulta and I are still friends. Now we work together.”

Don’t be fooled by Jónsdóttir’s exuberance, though. There was a time when she wasn’t so pleased to be burdened with her not-so-normal lot in life. “You know, as a teenager, I really tried not to see them,” she says. “It’s not cool! But thank goodness I couldn’t stop seeing them." Now she's negotiating the rescue of their holy buildings, protecting their communities from destruction, and, in turn, saving their lives. She's not hiding her talents anymore, she's trumpeting them. She's sort of like an Icelandic Lorax. Ragnhildur speaks for the elves.

But again, why her? Why choose Jónsdóttir to be the spokesperson? “I never asked about that!” she says. “Maybe because I’m crazy enough to say yes!”

There it is again, that word “crazy.” Even after all this, it’s still a huge leap to get on board with the fact that everything she says it true: that these things that we cannot see are real, and need to be saved. But perhaps we shouldn’t be selective in the things that are invisible to us but that we still believe in.

“When you go into a church, you don’t see God or Jesus or Muhammed or Buddha,” Jónsdóttir says. “And you don’t see love. But most of us, at least, believe in love. Or, if you’re anxious, you get physical pain. But it’s just a feeling. You don’t see it.”

So maybe Ragnhildur Jónsdóttir is a little crazy. But maybe, then, we all are, too.
