First, like Bruce I want to thank all readers and writers who are responding in these first days of The C Influence. Indeed, the `seed post' of this week by Regan Lee was posted today in The Anomalist. And, that is the purpose of my essay today.
I will first respond to the questions I said on Sunday were suggested by Lee's post (just my gut feel on each) - then, later this week, I will respond to points raised by other authors already and by comments from our readers.
1) Are paranormal events coming `from' the otherside or are projections made by ourselves? --------- You know, I used to worry-think more about this than I do now - as I think the events `into our reality' come from a non-local area (that may be responding to our intentionality's).
2)Investigated in location with ectoplasm and psychokinesis - ------ I have seen psychokinesis once for sure and had the manisfistion of my grandfathers footsteps in the attic after his sudden death - I would be interested in hearing other authors psychokinesis events too --- I would love to hear Regan tell about ectoplasm - details please?
3)Regan's family history of ghosts ---------- Personally, I think it runs thru humanity and nearly all families to some degree.
4)Electric feeling on stairs -- No comment.
5)the Trickster ----------- To me, it is what I call `beckoning the unknown'. And, since it is wrapped up in intentionality's, the net effect is being a Trickster to events.
6)"I suspect “they” on the other side are more aware of us than we are of them and are better at manipulating energies." -------------- I slightly agree with part one - I slightly disagree with part two.
7)"what we call ghosts, or spirits, exist. It's more complex than just dead people showing themselves occasionally as flimsy, vague shapes" ----------------- Agree, with caveots.
Do other authors have viewpoints on these 7 issues? Do you see other issues in Lee's piece?
