lighten up :)

just a little bit of light reading before bed, 🙂 plus its been a long day and the kids all took a long time to settle tonight my youngest also has night terrors so sleep may not be on my agenda for tonight 🙂 but my travels through the tinternet have brought me these snippets :_

The Cave Children

Greengirl

Two children appeared from a cave near Banjos, Spain, in August 1887. Their skin was green and their clothes were of an unfamiliar material. They could not speak Spanish, and their eyes appeared Oriental. At first they would not eat, and because of this the boy didn’t survive, but the girl survived long enough to explain that she had come from a ‘sunless land’ and that one day a whirlwind had swept her and her companion up and deposited them into the cave. Understandably, this did little to dispel the wonder surrounding her. She died in 1892, her origins still unknown.

i have come across a vague mention of this before and it fascinates me i may look for more info on this tomorrow

and these next 2 are just brilliant!

The Philip Experiment

Seance

The Phillip Experiment was conducted in the early 1970’s by The Toronto Society of Psychical Research. The purpose of the experiment was to see if a fictitious historical character could manifest itself through the group’s efforts of concentration. They named the ghost Phillip and gave the ghost a personality and a complete background, even drawing a portrait to make him seem more real. The 8 members in the group also memorized the fictional biography and studied the period in which Phillip was supposed to have lived. The séances proved nothing for many months until 1973 when Phillip began to communicate. He first came through as a solid rap on the table. In the months that followed, the group discovered that when they asked questions and using 1 knock as “yes” and 2 as “no”, they could actually have an intelligent conversation with their ghost.
Interesting Fact: The experiment came to a strange end when one member of the group broke ranks and stated aloud in a reply to Phillip that “we only made you up, you know.” All communications stopped. Once denied that Phillip was real, he ceased to exist.

Dead Weight Experiment

Gravesoul

This is not the official name of this experiment but I thought it had a nice ring to it. In 1907 Dr. Duncan MacDougall of Haverhill, MA placed six terminal patients on a specially designed bed built on a scale and weighed them as they took their last breath. Based on results from the experiment, the patients lost approximately 3/4 ounces which equals 21.3 grams. MacDougall also measured fifteen dogs in similar circumstances and reported the results as negative with no perceived change in weight. He took these results as confirmation that the human soul has weight and that dogs do not have souls. MacDougall’s experiments were published in the New York Times and some medical journals.

Interesting Fact: MacDougall’s complaints in his journal about not being able to find dogs dying of the natural causes led to the suspicion that he was poisoning dogs to conduct his experiments. Also: These experiments inspired a film called “21 Grams” starring Sean Penn.

see now i am going to have to find this film!

ok i feel much better now have a restful night everyone and i hope some of you have sleep involved in it somewhere 🙂

    1. hiya lovely it is isnt it i shall find some more soon as i walked the dogs 🙂 have a great day xx

  2. Interesting – I had never heard of the two children. What an odd and terrible thing to happen? How in the world do you find all of this stuff? Makes for interesting reading. Thank you Kizzy.

    1. that story always fascinated me it was such an isoalted incident i first heard about it years ago i read some odd books 🙂 i am a voracious reader i will read anything! i am well known for not being able to sleep until i have found a book to read ! but that story it took ages to find anything about it and even then not much the town where it happened was not involved in any other out of the ordinary experience and by all accounts doesn’t want to be associated with this, but i am astounded because i would have wanted to have known everything, and it broke my heart when the boy wouldn’t eat, i would have searched high and low for something he would have tried to eat, i would have kept on trying til i i could have made them comfortable, eating and well, i know that’s the mother in me but also basic compassion for another soul you know? well i know you do, you are a lot in my frame of mind and it breaks my heart that no one could help them, the girl managed to communicate a little so it begs the question why did the people not manage to get out of her what they could eat? at least then they would have had some comfort i would have left all questions about who and where til they had been fed and made comfortable, but i guess i wasn’t there and the one big thing i have in my life is i wont judge anyone or any circumstance if i wasn’t there to witness what happened, so if i wasn’t there i cant say what happened, which is why i use the word ‘apparently’ a lot because i wont say it is fact if i cant prove it , anyways i do find anything unexplained interesting 🙂 i read a huge amount of books and my tinternet travels are always along the lines of being distracted by some bizarre or unusual happening 🙂 i hope you have an excellent day my friend xx:)
