A mystical creature with hooves and his marks hooves

A mystical creature with hooves and his marks

There are a huge number of different tracks, which for various reasons are attributed to the unexplained. To this phenomenon we consider only copytophone traces, as in all cases of their appearance stand out common features, distinct from other phenomena, which involve the appearance of unusual marks.

Copytophone traces in many cultures, traditionally associated with evil spirits. Different people consider their source of devils, demons, the devil, and witches with hooves instead of feet, the damned, etc.

Thus, the phenomenon of "traces of the devil" will be considered copytophone signs that have appeared on a variety of surfaces that have certain signs of deviation from the norm (the rate of occurrence, the distance between the prints, etc.)

Stories about the "devil's footprints" is rooted in a remote antiquity. The first mention can be considered the 929 year. In Japan, the territory of the Imperial Palace were "the devil's footprints."
The earliest written reference that we could find dates back to the year 1205. According to Ralph Coggeshall (which also describes the strange phenomenon of his era), writer of the 13th century, 19 Jul 1205, strange hoof prints after a strong storm.

The most famous case is the incident called "traces of the Devil in Devon", which may have occurred in February 1855 around the axe estuary in South Devon. A brief description of this fact: on the night of 7 to 8 February 1855, at 1.00 or 2.00, after a heavy snowfall on the snow appeared copytophone signs. These footprints, most of which had a size of about 4 inches in length and about three inches in width, located at a distance of from eight to sixteen inches apart and following approximately on one straight direction (albeit with small deviations), was discovered in more than thirty places throughout Devon and part of Dorset. It has been estimated that the total length of the route, during which they met was from 40 to 100 miles. Houses, rivers, haystacks, fences and other obstacles did not stop the person who left these footprints: they were found on roofs of houses, their walls up to 14 feet and even the inlet and outlet of the small pipe diameter of four inches. The footprints were so called because some people believed that the traces of Satan, as they supposedly were made with cloven hooves. Many theories have been put forward to explain this incident, and many of its aspects as the accuracy, even at the time have been a doubt; however, this event caused a fairly serious (albeit short-lived and quickly zabyvshiesya) mass hysteria.

There are very few primary sources describing this event. Known only documents found after the publication in 1950 of the article about the incident Devon County historical society, which requested help in finding additional information. After this was discovered, a collection of articles and letters 1850-ies, vicar Elcombe, among which is a letter to him from his friend the vicar Makhrova, containing a letter to the newspaper The Illustrated London News marked "Not for printing" and print traces, allegedly made from nature, and there were found indications of other newspaper articles about this event; it was established the identity of the first who discoursed about the traces correspondent: it was the future curator of one of the museums of Exeter, who at that time was 19 years old.

Only relatively reliable source about an event time close to it spaced, four: letters Ellacombe, letter Makhrova, reporting from Exeter and a letter of the anonymous author to a newspaper in which he suggests that the traces left otter. All subsequent articles, including those mentioned above, and article 1890, the Busk, where he cited the testimony of witnesses, reprinted in 1922, appeared much later, so they should be treated with caution.

There is information about several such incidents in other parts of the world, although none of them had the same scale, as is the case in Devon.

James Clark Ross, wrote that during the Antarctic expedition 1839-1843 years on the island of Kerguelen in 1840 it was discovered a strange horseshoe-shaped traces - first on the ground, in the snow, then on rock where there was no snow. The footprints were similar to the traces of a horse or a donkey, but such animals of the expedition, nor on the island was not.

Fifteen years before the events of the Devonian, in 1840, The Times wrote about that in Scotland, in Glen Orci, March 14, were found strange footprints, like the prints of cloven hooves, at a distance of 12 miles. The one who left them, was if to proceed from the depth of footprints, large size (approximately from large foal) and it was lame.

In The Illustrated London News in March 1855 was published the article of correspondent of the newspaper in Heidelberg, which, citing "authoritative Polish doctor of medicine," reported that on a Sandy Hill in the Kingdom of Poland, on the border with Galicia, such traces are found in the snow (and sometimes in the sand) every year, and the locals believe that leaves them a supernatural being.

1909: new Jersey, USA, beaches near Gloucester.

1945: Belgium.

1950: back to the Devon (beach).

In the autumn of 1957 in the journal Tomorrow ("Tomorrow") appeared an article by paranormal investigator Eric Dingwall, entitled "the Devil walks again." In it, in particular, cited the story of 26-year-old Colin Wilson (later famous writer) about how in the summer of 1950 in one of the deserted beaches of Devonshire, he saw the smooth and dense surface of wet sand, rammed the sea waves, weird prints like hoof prints.
1974: the slopes of mount Etna, Sicily.

1976: the Alps in the heart of nice and near lake Siljan (Norway).

2000 (January 23): Cleveland (Ohio).

12 Mar 2009 in press reports emerged that night in Devon appeared again the same traces, was even published photographs, but the official science did not give any comments about it.

This can be attributed to various urban legends and little stories about a woman with hooves. They do not have a specific geographic location. Very similar references to people with hooves are almost the entire territory of modern Russia and neighboring countries. Vaguely urban legends have been known to almost all parts of the world.

For example, in the Voronezh region the emergence of "women with hooves" is famous for Verkhnyaya Khava and Kashirsky area. The cases and little stories Upper Chava no longer describe the appearance of the footprints and the "baby". Same case occurred in Kashira district in 1997, rather similar to the Devonian.

Hypothesis of the origin of the "devil's footprints" similar to the hypotheses to explain the traces of incident in Devon.

For many years collecting materials about the event researcher Mike dash has put together all they found primary and secondary sources in the article, "The Devil's Hoofmarks: Source Material on the Great Devon Mystery of 1855" ("traces of the Devil: materials for the study of the great Devon Mystery of 1855"), first published in Fortean Studies in 1994. He, while not denying the reality of the facts, came to the conclusion that it was not and could not be any one "source" of origin of traces: some of them were almost certainly a hoax, some were left quite an ordinary four-legged animals such as donkeys or horses, and some mice. However, he admitted that it cannot explain all reports of tracks (especially those that seem to be found in the cities), and that "a mystery remains".

Conditionally they can be divided into a mystical, natural and a hoax.


  • Balloon. Author Jeffrey Kaushal suggested that the traces left of the pilot balloon, released by mistake from Devonport, through the links at the end of its mooring ropes. The source version was a local resident, major Carter, whose grandfather worked in Devonport at the time. Carter said that the incident was hushed up because the balloon destroyed several conservatories, greenhouses, and Windows before fell to the ground in Hantone. Although this version may explain the trace amounts, it is highly doubtful that the ball could follow such a strict path for a long time and not to be hooked with ropes over a tree or other object.
  • The jumping mouse. Referred to Mike dash in his article indicates that at least some marks, especially found on the roofs of homes, could be left in forest mice, which due to the unusually cold weather rushed into the city. Trace remaining in the snow after a jump of the mouse, similar to cloven hoof due to mouse movement during a jump. Dash argues that the theory of the "mouse factor" appeared in The Illustrated London News in March 1855 (because as the article about the event, despite the request of the vicar, were still printed, for the first time - Feb 13). It was noticed that in some places the traces as if all has been interrupted due to an attack on the mice, birds of prey (e.g., owls), and supposedly next to the tracks and sometimes even have found the bodies of mice. The mouse could also climb along walls and climb through the pipe. Thus, to date, the version of forest mice is the only one that could at least partially explain this event from the point of view of science.
  • Mass hysteria. Moreover, it was assumed that the whole story is the result of a sudden mass hysteria caused by the comparison of various different traces of the same origin (which could be left by cattle, badgers, otters and so on) and their wydawania for a single unit. This includes the version of the origin of traces of known living beings.
  • Kangaroo. In his letter to The Illustrated London News the vicar Makhrov wrote that there were rumors, though from a private menagerie in Sidmouth's seafront escaped kangaroo. However, any sources of information on authenticity of this event is not, how could the kangaroo to cross the estuary - is unclear, and indeed Makhrov wrote then that he made up the story about the kangaroo to calm and distract his congregation that believed that their land was visited by the Devil.


  • The one-legged. According to one version, made by someone unknown, the footprints were left by the animals called the one-legged - it, as reported, first seen in the year 1001 on the island of Labrador a Viking Barf Herealso; the animal had only one leg, but moved with extraordinary speed. However, in the newspaper printed this version, it was said that you can probably believe that the traces left by the Devil than believe in the existence of one-legged.
  • Jack the jumper. The history of Traces of the Devil was also associated with Jack the jumper, the character of the English urban legend of those times. But even if we assume that Jack the jumper actually existed, but this version seems to be very questionable. First, in Devon at the time of the appearance of Jack was not fixed. Second, the description of the traces of the "real" Jack there and they are unlike any found in Devon.

Jack-jumper or Jack-springs-on-heels (Engl. Spring-Heeled Jack), is a character in English folklore of the Victorian era, humanoid creature, notable primarily for its ability to jump amazing heights. The first reports about the appearance of Jack-jumper in London, dated 1837. Later its occurrence was recorded in many places of England, especially in London, its suburbs, Liverpool, Sheffield, Midlands (Central England) and even Scotland. The "peak" was published in the 1850s-1880's years; despite the fact that a number of reports of encounters with Jack from England and even from other countries did in the twentieth century, the last date of its appearance is considered to be 1904.

There are many theories about the nature and identity of Jack the jumper, but none of them is scientifically proven and does not provide affirmative answers to all questions related to the "activity" of Jack. Thus, its history remains unexplained so far, science does not know about the device with which people could commit such Jack jumps, and the fact of his actual existence is disputed by a significant number of historians. The urban legend about Jack the jumper was incredibly popular in England in the second half of the nineteenth century primarily because of its unusual appearance, bizarre aggressive behavior (Jack often attacked people) and the ability to make the incredible height of the jumps, to the point that Jack became the hero of several works of art of European "pulp literature" of the XIX-XX centuries.

The story of Jack the jumper is significant because of two things. First, he has had a huge impact on "comic book culture" of the twentieth century, and that his dress became the prototype of the "superhero (or super villain) costume." Secondly, it is the only one in the history of mankind "reasonable mystical creature", "thing" which was discussed at the level of state institutions, came to the recognition of its reality.


  • There are many versions of the ways of mystification. For example, traces could be left by some "unknown hot metal object".

A nachzehrer anthropomorphic creature hurting people living dead the bare bones of the skeleton

A nachzehrer

A mythical creature from the North German medieval folklore, often associated with vampires.

Unlike vampires, a nachzehrer, as they say in the legends, does not drink the blood of living people, and eat their own dead body, by which the distance is infecting people with a fatal disease (particularly plague) and drains their life force.

The more they eat, the weaker becomes their family members dying one after another from disease and exhaustion. To identify it can be turned to large fingers and open the left eye.

They may be died an unusual death (e.g., suicide or accident) or the first cases of a large group of people who died from some illness (usually the plague), and they supposedly could become drowned or children who died at birth.

A vampire

Vampire is a word of unknown, though rather late, origin, found in German, romance, and most Slavic languages; but it is not found in Church Slavonic, nor in medieval Latin, nor even in old and middle German. To the West of Europe, it came from Germany, where, in turn, it was adopted from the Slavs. It means a dead man who has risen from the grave, who sucks the blood of sleeping people.

Below we will describe a brief history of vampire beliefs.

Stories of the dead shedding blood are found in almost all cultures around the world, including the oldest. Vampire-like spirits called Lilu are mentioned in early Babylonian demonology, and blood-sucking akshars are mentioned in even earlier Sumerian mythology. In India, stories of vetals, vampire-like creatures that inhabit corpses, were common in Sanskrit short stories.

The vampire myth as we know it originated in Eastern Europe from Slavic folklore, where vampires were creatures that killed people by drinking their blood or by strangling them (this is discussed in more detail in the next section).

In the eighteenth century, the threat of vampires was taken very seriously in Eastern Europe. Even civil servants were involved in the hunt for them.

It all started with an outbreak of complaints about vampire attacks in East Prussia in 1721 and in the Habsburg monarchy from 1725 to 1734. Two well-known (and for the first time fully documented by the authorities) cases involved Peter Blagojevic (Peter Plogojowitz) and Arnold Paole (Arnold Paole) from Serbia. According to the story, Blagojevich died at the age of 62, but returned a couple of times after his death, asking for food from his son. The son refused and was found dead the next day. Blagojevich soon returned and attacked some of the neighbors, who bled to death.

In another famous case, Arnold paole, a former soldier turned farmer who was allegedly attacked by a vampire a few years ago, died while haying. After his death, people began to die and everyone believed that it was paole who preyed on the neighbors.

In the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, the belief in vampires reached not only the ears of the king of England, but also spread throughout New England, particularly to Rhode island and Eastern Connecticut. In these areas, there are many documented cases of families digging up those they once loved and removing the hearts from the corpses, believing that the deceased was a vampire responsible for illness and death in the family (although the word "vampire" was never used to describe him or her).

The belief in vampires still exists. Although some cultures have retained their original beliefs in the undead, most modern believers are influenced by the artistic image of the vampire as it appears in films and literature.

In the 1970s, there were rumors (spread by the local press) of a vampire hunting at Highgate cemetery in London. Adult vampire hunters crowded the cemetery in large numbers. Among the several books describing this case are those of Sean Manchester, a local resident who was one of the first to suggest the existence of a "Highgate Vampire" and who claimed to have exorcised and destroyed every vampire nest in the area.

In modern folklore in Puerto Rico and Mexico, the Chupacabra is considered a creature that feeds on the flesh or drinks the blood of domestic animals. This gives reason to consider it another type of vampire.

In late 2002 and early 2003, hysteria over so-called vampire attacks spread across the African country of Malawi. The mob stoned one to death and attacked at least four others, including Governor Eric Chiwaya, based on the belief that the government was in cahoots with the vampires.


In Romania in February 2004, some relatives of the late Toma Petre feared that He had become a vampire. They pulled out his corpse, tore out his heart, burned it, and mixed the ashes with water to drink it later.

In January 2005, rumors surfaced that someone had bitten several people in Birmingham, England. Then there were rumors of a vampire roaming the area. However, local police claimed that such crimes were not reported. Apparently, this case was an urban legend.

In 2006, the American mathematical physicist Costas J. Efthimiou (Ph. D. in mathematical physics, associate Professor at the University of Central Florida), along with his student Sohang Gandhi, published an article that used geometric progression to try to expose the features of vampire nutrition, arguing that if each feeding of a vampire generates another vampire, it is only a matter of time before the entire population of the Earth will consist of vampires, or when they will die out. However, the idea that the victim of a vampire becomes a vampire itself does not appear in all vampire folklore, and is not generally accepted among modern people who believe in vampires.

Some types of vampires (for example, East Slavic), not only drink blood, but also have a sexual and erotic interest, thus feeding on vital energy. From such love, a woman loses weight, turns pale, pines, gets sick, loses vitality, becomes withdrawn, silent, and dies.

It is difficult to make a General description of the folklore vampire, since its features vary greatly among different cultures. Here are a few common features of vampires:

  • A vampire is a relatively immortal creature, you can kill it, but it doesn't age.

  • This is a supernatural being, and it has physical strength that is many times greater than that of a human, not to mention supernatural abilities.

  • The appearance of a European vampire consists largely of features that can distinguish it from an ordinary corpse, once you open the grave of a suspected vampire. The vampire has a healthy appearance and ruddy skin (possibly pale), it is often plump, it has regrown hair and nails, and everything else it is completely decomposed.

  • The most common ways to destroy a vampire are to drive an aspen stake through their heart, decapitate them, and completely incinerate their body.

  • Chinese vampire stories also state that if a vampire stumbles across a bag of rice on his way, he/she will count all the grains. Similar myths are recorded on the Indian Peninsula, in South America

  • Items that protect against vampires (as well as other supernatural creatures) were garlic (this is more typical of European legends), sunlight, wild rose stalk, hawthorn and all sacred things (cross, Holy water, crucifix, rosary, star of David, etc.), as well as aloe, hung behind the door or near it, according to South American superstitions. In Eastern legends, sacred items such as the Shinto seal were often protected from vampires. In the Christian tradition, vampires cannot enter a Church or other sacred place, as they are servants of the devil.

  • Sometimes it is believed that vampires can change shape. They could turn into wolves, rats, moths, spiders, snakes, owls, crows, and many others.

  • Vampires from European legends do not cast shadows and do not have reflections. Perhaps this is due to the vampire's lack of soul.

  • Some peoples have a belief that a vampire can't enter a house without an invitation.

Despite this, the phenomenon is not vampirism itself as such, since bloodlust, as a type of food, is inherent in creatures known to science.
Although it is now the 21st century, myths and legends are firmly embedded in human society. The myth of the vampire phenomenon is no exception. If earlier the image of a vampire evoked horror on a person, now it is romanticized. This image has imitators, ranging from harmless teenagers walking through cemeteries at night, to violent maniacs who actually drink the blood of their victims.

In the modern world, in addition to the established image of the vampire as a person who rose from the grave and drinks blood, new variations have appeared. Since blood was considered a receptacle of vital energy, now food for vampires in human form is considered simply energy. Hence the belief in energy vampires. Bloodlust, as a type of food, mostly remained only for animals of unknown origin (for example, Chupacabra).

It is believed that the first mention of them can be found in the papyrus of Pharaoh Thutmose III, who is in the collection of the Director of the Egyptian Department of the Vatican Museum and describes the following phenomenon:

"In the twenty-second year in the third month of winter at 6 o'clock the House of Life scribes saw in the sky moving fire circle. Its dimensions were elbow to elbow length and in width. They prostrated themselves and reported to Pharaoh, and he thought about this event. After a few days the objects in the sky were numerous and shone brighter than the sun. And Pharaoh with the army looked at them. By the evening fire circles ascended higher and moved in the direction of the South... From the sky fell volatile substance... this has not happened since the Foundation of the Earth... And the Pharaoh had offered incense to the gods, and commanded to put the incident in the annals of the House of Life."

Later references include the supervision of 16 Nov 1857, Charleston, USA. A night on the town scurried bright "comet", and in the morning everywhere was full of cobwebs, but no spiders. And in 1881 in Milwaukee, USA the sky was entirely overcast angel's hair that made a lasting impression on the locals. Data were captured in the magazine "scientific American".

"Angel hair" under the microscope

To associate with a UFO directly they began in October 1954. October 27, Gennaro and Pietro Luchetti of Lastrucci sat on the balcony of St. Mark's square in Venice, Italy. At the same time they noticed two spindle-shaped object that rotates and sailed across the sky. Behind them stretched traces, like the white flame. Objects at a high speed went across the sky, made a smooth 180-degree turn and disappeared over the horizon. A few minutes later a UFO could observe the participants and spectators of a football match in Florence. Besides the teams and the referees at the stadium was attended by about 10 thousand spectators, and journalists. The match had to be interrupted because everyone's attention was riveted on the flying "cigars". But even then resume the game failed – it turned out that a football field is covered with a transparent sticky web.

By their appearance the angel hair is similar to ectoplasm.

Among attempts to explain the phenomenon we can distinguish the following hypotheses:

  • American ufologist Charles Maini suggested that "angel hair" is a tangible result of the work of the engines of the UFO emitted to the outside such as exhaust gases of internal combustion engines. Rapid evaporation residues he explains that this substance is very unstable in our reality and disappears, moving to more familiar space-time.
  • Other UFOlogy suggested that the celestial web is a materialization of some spiritual powers, like ectoplasm, appearing at seances.
  • In 2001, Nikolai Subbotin, Director of the Russian UFO research station RUFORS coined the term "chemtrails", which was a literal translation of the same foreign concept "chemtrail". He suggested that this substance is formed after the openings in the atmosphere of aircraft of a certain design in the spraying them with some chemicals.
  • Entomologists declare that no mystery exists, and it is a fibrous substance – just a lot of broken web carried by the wind. In confirmation of their theory they cite the example of a tiny lenify, though having wings, but is able to be transported by air in a very original way. The spider just turns her torso to the wind and releases from the back of a long thin thread. As soon as the wind picks up the thread in the air, a spider fast to it takes a hold and thus overcomes a pretty decent distance.

However, none of these hypotheses can not be considered strictly scientific: the first two explain the phenomenon using not scientifically proven things, the existence of "dimitras", described N. Subbotin also not proven. Entomological hypothesis still has not found practical evidence.

Anomalous zone makes you wander the distortion of time the transition to another world

Anomalous zone

In the usual sense of the term "Anomalous zone" means the region has abnormal physical characteristics, where the observed phenomena are beyond the concept of "norm".

Thus we can give the following definition of this term:

The "anomalous area" is a geographically fixed location, having different, but fixed, in each case, the area in which there is a regular manifestation of one or more phenomena.

The concept of anomalous zones should be distinguished from the place of occurrence of the fact. The scene of the fact is a geographically fixed place with specific coordinates of observations or manifestations of the phenomenon, the phenomenon occurs once.

Ie if in a place once seen a UFO, it is a scene of fact, if the observations occur on a regular basis, then it is "anomalous zone".

After analyzing the testimonies of manifestations of the phenomena around the world over the last 50 years, their frequency, regularity, location and content, we got a classification that can be used for ease of notation and statistics as well as to develop methods of studying.

To classify the abnormal area can be different characteristics:

  • manifested in the phenomenon;
  • on effects on living organisms;
  • the impact on technology;
  • the frequency of manifestations of the phenomenon;
  • in connection with the subject;
  • area distribution;
  • by the degree of activity.

Consider each type of classification in more detail.
manifested in the phenomenon:

  • the appearance of unidentified objects;
  • the appearance of unknown beings;
  • the appearance of unknown entities;
  • altering the flow of time or the curvature of space;
  • a strange manifestation of physical processes;
  • the emergence of various sound and visual phenomena from an unknown source.

on effects on living organisms:

  • no effect;
  • reversible causes physiological changes in the living body at the time spent in the anomalous zone;
  • causes irreversible physiological changes in a living organism;
  • affects the psychological state of a person or animal;
  • having a sharply negative impact on the health of a person or animal until death.

impact on technology:

  • denies exposure;
  • the manifestation of anomalies through the use of technical devices;
  • has a reversible effect on the operation of technical devices;
  • has an irreversible impact on the operation of technical devices.

the frequency of manifestations of the phenomenon:

  • is constant;
  • appears often (at least 20 times a year);
  • is rarely seen (at least 20 times a year);
  • manifested calendar (days or hours).

on the subject of:

  • the manifestation of the phenomenon is associated with a specific object located in the anomalous zone;
  • the manifestation of the phenomenon is associated with a specific subject, not located in the anomalous zone;
  • the manifestation of the phenomenon is not related to a particular subject.

area of distribution:

  • itself on the same geographical coordinates;
  • appears in a fixed area;
  • manifests itself in small fixed areas (glade, etc.);
  • manifested in extensive grounds.

by the degree of activity:

  • the current (phenomena regularly observed in the present).
  • sleeping (the phenomena were regularly observed in the past, but contemporary evidence is not available).

This prior classification of anomalous zones. It may not be complete or require correction upon receipt of information during the investigation of the unexplained facts in the "anomalous zone," or study of the phenomena themselves, for which this place is considered abnormal.

Aquatic creatures water creature

Aquatic creatures

In addition to beings that are considered reasonable (e.g. mermaids), humanity for many centuries, holds legends of water monsters. These terrible monsters inhabit all water bodies, from oceans to small lakes.

These creatures are usually described as giant snakes, lizards and squid.


The most famous being, perhaps, live in the lake, is Nessie. According to legend, it inhabits the Loch ness in Scotland. The researchers (who are referred to as "cryptozoology") believe that the first of the Loch ness monster is mentioned by Roman legionaries. The legend of the creature (Calpi), living in lakes, is also present in Scottish folklore. However, the worldwide fame it acquired after the publication of the so-called "surgeon's photograph" (Surgeon photo), made by the London physician R. Kenneth Wilson in 1934, which turned out to be a hoax. However, in the Wake of the popularity of the monster was made many other pictures.

The seas and oceans

Monster of the deep sea have long been known to sailors and become part of their legends. Stories about the monsters that inhabited the seas appeared almost before the Maritime and successfully survived until our days.

One of the well-known marine life according to these legends is the Kraken. It's a mythical sea monster looks like a cephalopod mollusc of gigantic proportions. He became known by the descriptions of Icelandic sailors. One of the most famous documented descriptions of this creature was given by captain Robert Jameson and the sailors of his vessel, under oath in court and published in "St. James Chronicle" at the end of the 1770-ies. A description of what they saw in 1774: a huge body of up to 1.5 miles in length and 30 feet in height that it appeared from the water, then sank and finally disappeared "under extraordinary agitation of the waters." After that they found this place so many fish that it filled almost the entire ship.

Second in popularity after the giant squid creatures mentioned in ancient legends, is a giant snake. For Example, Cadborosaurus. This hypothetical marine reptile supposedly lives off the coast of North America. It is very similar to the sea serpent with a long body and a head like a horse.


Mythical creatures spotted in the rivers, significantly less than in the oceans, seas and lakes. Famous enough to find their individual name and worldwide fame, not at all. Typically, they are described as giant fish with huge teeth or snakes unnatural sizes.


The basic version, trying to explain the existence of the above beings, the following:

  • Relict of the cryptids, as yet unknown to science animals (a huge fish, long-necked seal, giant clam, etc.) that were able to survive to the present day, undetected.
  • Known creatures accidentally been taken over by monsters.
  • Inanimate objects are taken for monsters: logs, debris, waves, etc.
  • A deliberate hoax.

In addition to descriptions of eyewitnesses, photos and video evidence, find the bodies of creatures that fit the description above. This is not surprising because it is rare, but these creatures are real and recognized by official science. For example, a giant squid oceanographers found in 2004.

Aswang afraid of the light changes form hurting people turns into a human turns into an animal unusual sounds


A generic term for various shape-shifting evil creatures in Filipino folklore, such as vampires, ghouls, witches, suckers of entrails, and werewolf beasts (usually dogs, cats, pigs). Despite the absence of any particular motive other than harming others, their behavior can be interpreted as an inversion of traditional Filipino values. Aswang is especially popular in the Visayas, southern parts of Luzon, and parts of Mindanao, including Capiz.

Aswangs usually live at night in cemeteries and forests, as their strength in the daytime is significantly reduced, and sometimes completely disappear. Although they are described as wild monsters that often live in the wilderness and on the fringes of society, Aswangs are also described as creatures capable of living in the immediate vicinity or even within a village, leading to several reports of Aswan attacks in major population centers. Their ability to adapt and live in urban and rural environments populated by humans, while maintaining their wild monstrous nature, is cited as a feature that sets Aswangs apart from most other monsters. 

They are also usually afraid of the light (which is why the wake was often brightly lit so that aswan would not come to the funeral to steal and devour the corpse). They are also dismissive of noise, but in rare cases they are called vangs, who attend noisy parties.

Aswangs are traditionally described as one-dimensional monsters and evil in nature, with no explicable motive other than harming and devouring other creatures. Their openly evil behavior can be described as an inversion of traditional Filipino values (strong kinship and family closeness): Aswangs have no bias when choosing their prey and do not hesitate to target their own relatives. 

Aswangs are considered unclean and prefer raw human meat to contrast the value with the purity of the cooked, seasoned, and flavorful food characteristic of traditional Filipino culture. Aswangs are also often described as indecent in behavior, and female aswangs often expose their genitals, which is contrary to the values of traditional modesty.

There are several ways to banish or kill aswang. The various countermeasures used to defend against the creatures often differ depending on the cultural and symbolic meaning of each tool: holy objects, spices, salt, ash, stingray tail, large crustaceans, vinegar, chewing betel nuts and urine, and turning over the stairs leading to the house.

Since aswan was believed to be the cause of miscarriages, countermeasures were developed to ward off aswan and prevent them from wandering during childbirth. One way is for the husband of a pregnant wife to remain naked under the house while furiously brandishing a sword.

There is also a special oil against aswang. To make this oil, select a specific coconut and watch it grow. Collect it at dusk at the full moon, when it is wet and cloudy, the breeze should also be cool. The coconut should be grated and the juice squeezed out of it. Cook the mixture until it becomes butter. Say secret prayers and throw all the waste into the ocean so that aswan can't trace who made the oil. After completion, the oil should be hung at the door of the house: it will boil when aswan is near.

There are other methods of detecting aswan without using a special oil: creaking sounds coming from the ceiling of a house are often a sign of the presence of an ashwang nearby, and reincarnated aswangs can be detected by looking at whether your reflection is inverted in the creature's eyes. In addition, they can be dogs, cats, and pigs without tails.

To kill the creature, you can use the bolo knife to stab the witch in the middle of the back: if this area is not affected, he can lick the wounds to heal them. It is not recommended to use firearms

In Slavic folklore Baba Yaga has several sustainable attributes: she is able to cast spells, fly in a mortar, lives on the edge of the forest in a hut on chicken legs (or backed pancakes), surrounded by a fence of human bones with skulls. It attracts to itself people. His victims it pursues in the mortar, driving with her pestle and sweeping broom (broom).

Baca (Dominican folklore) hurting people pass the device or knowledge turns into an animal

Baca (Dominican folklore)

In Dominican folklore, there are creatures called Baka.

This devilish creature is called when they want to get wealth, fame and any other tangible benefits. It also protects the newly acquired goods and the interests of the owner from the hands of outsiders. The legends say that "a flower that a person asks for from baki will wither in someone else's garden," i.e. everything that the new owner receives will be taken away from someone else, no matter whether it is about land and house, or power and fame.

In a short time, prosperity wants to receive considerable sacrifices. The lucky ones will get off by returning him more than they received earlier. But, if you are not lucky, the whole family and even friends of the one who called Baku are waiting for misfortunes, serious illnesses, sudden death and even suicide. And most importantly - you will have to say goodbye to your soul forever. The fee that he will demand for his services and the time when it will have to be paid are unpredictable.

In the Dominican rural areas, and often in cities, it is still believed that every rich person has a baku helping him in business. And the tragedies that often accompany such people are associated with the fee that must be paid for owning tanks.

Dominicans believe that baka can appear in the guise of a black cat, a dog, a bull or an ox, a chicken or a big rooster, a cow or another animal, as well as a doll to hide his true identity and appear harmless. However, he has incredible strength, and his eyes glow with a devilish light.

You can summon Baku in various ways, but it is better to resort to the help of a witch (preferably of Haitian origin) or an expert from among those who possess voodoo magic. One of the options for the independent and inquisitive: take one egg laid on Good Friday and seven Fridays after that, warm it under your arms. A chicken that manages to survive and hatch after such a ritual will become a baka chicken.

Bodmin beast

The "Bodmin beast" is a creature from English folklore. This is a large cat-like animal that has been seen more than 60 times in the Bodmin moor area (Cornwall, England) since 1983. In some versions of the story, he is referred to as "the Ghostly wildcat of Bodmin moor" or even "The monster of Bodmin moor".

It is believed that the beast from Bodmin may be a large cat (Panther or Cougar) that escaped from a zoo or private collection. An investigation conducted by the government in 1995 did not reveal any evidence of the presence of such animals, but meetings with the animal continued, there are even videos. In addition, several cases of slaughter of livestock by some animal were recorded.

In 1995, the skull of a large cat was found in Bodmin moor. Staff at the natural history Museum, who examined the skull, determined that it really belonged to a young male leopard, but it was determined that the animal was not killed in England, and that most likely the skull came to the country along with a carpet of leopard skin.

Scientists point out that usually reports of the discovery of such animals are unreliable, because to maintain their numbers, it is necessary to have an improbably large number of individuals in the population, in addition, the survival of escaped animals makes it unlikely that the unsuitable climate and difficulties with food production.

Brownie anthropomorphic creature changes form choking victim hairy creature helps helps to find the lost thing hurting people predicts the future turns into an animal


The family of the Slavic peoples called the mythological spirit - owner and patron of the house. The image of a house in the views of the Slavs is known primarily in folk tales and true stories, recorded in the XVIII-XX centuries, but a similar spirit is found in the mythologies of different peoples, regardless of their place of habitation, and General beliefs.

Generally, it is believed that the patron Saint of the house is the spirit of a deceased ancestor. This is true for many people: for the ancient Greeks, where the keepers of home and hearth were called geniuses, and for the Romans, who called the patron gods of the hearth hearth and home, for the Chinese, Slavs, etc.

There are different versions of the origin of the belief in the brownie. There is speculation that it originates from the time when the Foundation of the new building was laid "construction sacrifice". Initially, it was people later, the victim began to bring animals. According to another theory, the notion of spirit - the patron of the house was the result of pagan worship ancestors.

On the territory of Russia with the advent of Christianity the house was considered a demon, as well as other pagan deities. To get rid of it, it was necessary to bless the house. On the territory of Ukraine and Belarus, on the contrary, the house eventually was considered a good spirit, sent by God to protect the house. This is confirmed by the presentation of possible clashes brownie with a swab, the demon and other "evil" spirits.

Not hard to guess that most residence house is the hearth, but it can also dwell in the red corner, the cellar, the attic and even under the threshold.

The appearance of a house, judging by the descriptions of eyewitnesses, can also be different. Usually it seems the furry creature of small stature. Sometimes it is bestial features, but more similar to ordinary little man. Also, it can make the appearance of any member of the family (especially absent), animals (often snakes, weasels, cats, rooster, rat).

The house usually is considered being male, but along with men's way house exists, and women. Usually it's the wife (domovina) and the daughter (domovina) brownie.

Domovoy often appears in the stories of eyewitnesses in various forms:

A noisy spirit. Poltergeist phenomena is often associated with houses. For some ideas he may slam doors, squeaking floorboards, to shout, to groan, to talk and even hitting and pinching people. It may be associated with a bad personality of a house, and that, usually, a good brownie is not happy with something (cursing, confusion, poor relations to children or animals, etc.). Less popular version explains a similar phenomenon brownie struggle against the evil spirit trying to get into the house.

Predictor. It is believed that the house is able to predict the future owners of the house: it usually comes to a sleeping man, and leans on his chest so that he can neither breathe, nor move, and if at this point ask brownie "for better or for worse?", he will answer. Scientists explain this as sleep paralysis.

Hides things. Another effect, closely associated with the family - the loss of things. If people can't find something, lying usually in a prominent place, it is considered that it took the house. To find the thing, decided to say: "brownie is a brownie, play and give!". Another way is to turn over the stool and tie on the bed scarf. After these manipulations, the thing should be.

The image of a house, described in this article, refers not only to the patron of the house, but also to the spirits-the patrons of the other buildings. In the views of some (mostly living in the North) peoples house "crushed" on the characters-twins, separate owners each building or even each functional area of the house (zamecnik, podrecznik, galesnik - a Ghost that lives behind the stove or under it; podolnick - spirit living in the underground; etc.).

Described here, the image is deformed under the influence of changes in the life of people. So, in private homes, the house moves not only within the home, but can look in the barn, the chicken coop, backyard. Estates in the manor house hosted all the houses of a farmstead. According to modern views, the house can not dwell only in the house (each apartment has its own), but in the garage, shed and even in the office.

Cat Bayun hairy creature hurting people large creature the manipulation of the thoughts of the victim

Cat Bayun

Kot Bayun (Bayun cat, cat Bahari) - a character in Russian fairy tales, a huge man-eating cat with a magical voice.

He speaks and lulls with his talk and singing approaching travelers and those of them who do not have enough strength to resist his magic and who are not prepared for a fight with him, the sorcerer cat kills with iron claws. But the one who can catch a cat will find salvation from all diseases and ailments-Bayun's fairy tales are healing.

According to researcher Kirill Korolev, the image of the learned cat-storyteller (Bahar) came from popular Russian legends about the wonders of the fabulous "Indian Kingdom". The features of the cat-monster, which can enchant a person to death with its voice, could also be borrowed from medieval texts like "Physiologist" and ABC books.

The oldest known record of a cat is the text of A. Pushkin's nanny. Further spread of the image was promoted by popular prints that illustrated the prologue to "Ruslan and Lyudmila", and largely thanks to them, the learned cat as the personification of storytelling became a well-known character.

In the fairy tales from the collection of A. N. Afanasiev, most likely, the cat-Bayun replaced the devil.

Chronorally sounds without visible sources the distortion of time vision from another time


Temporal anomaly of some of the most rare phenomena, but they are in the top five most discussed.

The time – conditional comparative measure of the movement (leakage) of physical and mental processes that are the condition of possibility of change.

From this definition follow two conclusions important for understanding the nature of time and temporal anomalies:

  1. Time is a measure of comparison, the speed (or duration) of occurrence of some phenomena (processes) with the speed of course other. Thus, time is always relative: the speed of any process is always defined in comparison with the flow rate to a reference process. Time does not affect our senses you see, hear, touch, and hence cannot be measured directly. Moreover, the standards of time also until recently was inaccessible to most people: an atomic clock somewhere, and wrist can malfunction and show the wrong time. People are used to the subjectivity of time and don't trust your own feelings a little more than not trusted wrist watch. With the development of the Internet and mobile devices, providing the ability to periodically synchronize (lock) hours with the standard, the relativity of time is greatly reduced, but still not used to it.
  2. Time is the condition of possibility of change. All processes in the Universe happen in time. If it were not time, the universe would have remained in the same condition in which it originated. If time suddenly disappeared, we would simply not noticed – all processes in the Universe would stop and we would not be able to understand what happened, because thinking is also a process and it happens in time.

There are a number of facts, telling about the various anomalies of the current time. Conditionally they can be divided into three types:

  1. time travel;
  2. speed change its flow until it stops;
  3. messages from another time.

Time travel

As travel into the past or the future here refers to the movement at a considerable temporal distance, as any man moving forward along the arrow of time, not making any effort to do so. This category included facts describing:

  • time travel people from the present;
  • guests from another time at present.

Facts in this category are mostly kind of story without reinforcement material evidence.

This category includes the bulk of facts. As example the following case:

I walked across the field home. It was getting dark already – from work went. I see on the road is someone. I looked closer – some woman are not local, and dressed strangely, as the king was dressed again. Tells me something unintelligible. Like moving his lips and no sound. He wanted to approach, to ask again Yes and she happened to get lost. At first I thought the grass roadside leaped. Looked even, and she vanished.

Ivan G. K. (Voronezh oblast)

Change the speed of the flow of time

This category of facts is often associated with different geographic coordinates or objects. As example is the "prodigal" in the woods, where the lost person feel like went lesser or greater period of time than those who in this place was.

Sometimes this is due to some special condition, in which flows of people and the subjective perception of time differs from the perception of others.

Message from another time

Message from another time can look quite different, however, for the most part, they leave behind material evidence. Below we give examples of possible messages to modern people from different times.

  • Messages from different times, obtained or preserved through modern technology. It can be phone calls, SMS, etc.
  • The scenes replay from the past or the future in the present through an unknown mechanism. For example,chronometrage where the Mirage reflects the scene, not what is happening at the moment.
  • Artifacts that do not correspond to its time.

Facts in this category are unrecognizable fairly easy, with the participation of a specialist in the history of a certain region and period.

Some facts often described the phenomenon of the anomalies associated with time. Often it is mentioned together with such phenomena as UFOs, crimson fog, Ghost, etc.

Also touching chronorally often mention various atmospheric phenomena.

Kronoberg unexplained phenomenon, in which you can see or hear events that occurred in the past (according to some in the future). They can be divided into:

  • Picture without sound
  • The image is accompanied by the sounds
  • Different sounds without the image

Should distinguish it from simple a Mirage is an atmospheric phenomenon that enables the use of optical reflections to see shifted in the space of events occurring in the present.

A distinctive feature of Kronoberg is that many of those who watched, trying to capture on photo, audio and video equipment, but instead of the image they were either white spots or nothing at all, and instead of sound – the usual noise.

Chupacabra bloodless victim drinking the blood fastest thing glowing eyes jumps high superpowered creature


The legend of the mysterious creature "the Chupacabra" originates from the state of Puerto Rico, located mostly on the same island. The word "chupacabras" is derived from the Spanish words "chupar" "to suck" and "cabra" — "goat", literally translates as "sucking goat", "goat vampire".

It is believed that the urban legend of the Chupacabra originates in the 1950-ies, when in Puerto Rico found a few dead goats, which were supposedly drained of blood. However, the first attack of this mysterious beast was indeed recorded in the fifties of the last century (more precisely in 1956), but in North America, in Arizona. Similar cases were also registered in Arizona, Oregon, Michigan, Illinois, new Jersey, new Mexico, Florida, and in some parts of Chile, Brazil and Mexico. However, most activities of this creature had in Puerto Rico (1995, hundreds of victims), so it is considered the birthplace of the legendary Chupacabra.

Over time, similar cases began to occur outside of Puerto Rico in close regions and very remote. Dominican Republic, Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, El Salvador, Panama, Peru, Brazil, the United States – in these countries have been victims of Chupacabra – the bloodless corpses of animals with small wounds on her neck. Since 2005, recorded similar cases in Russia. Eyewitness accounts alike as two drops of water: the creature sneaks into the village, depletes chickens, sheep, and silently disappears.

All the attacks the monster from urban legends share one trait – the round the wound is not great depth on the victim's neck, and partial or complete absence of blood in the body of the victim and the scene.

Also, in some cases, to the antics of Chupacabra include, in addition to these wounds on the body, neat "cuts" and holes. Moreover, specialists had missed any organs, most likely learned through the wounds with surgical precision. Noted another oddity in the corpses of victims. Body not numb. All the joints remain for a long period of time, mobility, and tissue softness. The blood that remains in the bodies of the victims of the Chupacabra, does not clot and even freeze for weeks.

Description of the animal vary: he is credited with the presence of swine Piglet (sometimes the muzzle of a coyote), wings, spikes, clawed paws, glowing eyes (sometimes black without protein). It jumps high fences, runs fast, and in some cases even fly. Sizes range from several tens of centimeters to several meters, and different head shape (from oval to elongated sharpened), color from coal black to bright green to dark green mottled. The presence of spines, scales, wool also varies from case to case.

In addition to the explanations of the antics of the creatures of the living organisms, there are versions about the unknown science creature. Versions of the origin Chupacabra quite a lot, ranging from the simple to absolutely incredible. We list the most famous:

  • unknown to science form of life extant;
  • a natural mutation of a known animal or modification under the action of the disease;
  • the result of a genetic experiment;
  • being of alien origin (this includes version - a being from another world).

As we can see, the history of this mysterious being emerged relatively recently and rapidly spread around the world. The attack and its consequences, as eyewitness accounts differ in many respects which may give rise to separate causes. It is therefore necessary to consider each fact individually, identifying unexplained moments.

Ectoplasm an unknown substance changes form destroyed by touching white gelatinous mass


It is believed that in 1848 there was a spiritualism. This belief in the reality of the afterlife and communication with spirits of the dead through mediums quickly gained popularity and grew into religioso-philosophical current. One of the important psychic abilities of those times, along with psychokinesis and levitation, was considered as materialization, that is, the manifestation of his presence outside of living matter, formed of ectoplasm.

It was believed that ectoplasm (from the ancient Greek. ἐκτός "outside" and πλάσμα, "something formed") is a viscous substance of mysterious origin, which stands out through the nose, ears and other parts of the body of the medium. This concentration of psychic energy medium, which is the basis for the materialization of the spirit.

According to witnesses, this energy-rich substance is a liquid or even a pair of milky white color with a pungent smell of ozone, dense doughy mass or even something like a thin cloth or cheesecloth.

According to mediums, the ectoplasm absolutely can not stand bright light and any contacts. Therefore, to conduct the session necessary only in a darkened room. If someone tries to touch her, to light or make a sudden movement, she immediately retracts back into the body of the medium.

It is assumed that the ectoplasm is capable of repeating the texture materializuesh things - the suit fabric, metal helmet etc.

The external signs of ectoplasm has a lot of similarities with angel hair.

In the scientific world of that time opinions were divided. Supporters of spiritualism believed that materialization is real and is a mental energy that appears due to the influence of spirits on the mind and nervous system of the medium.

Skeptics point to the fact that a significant portion of the allegations related to the appearance of this substance, refers to the sessions of the XIX century carried out without compliance with minimum monitoring by independent observers. Later, when methods of control were tightened, began to appear reports of numerous spiritualist hoaxes, including those associated with the appearance of ectoplasm.

For example, in the Encyclopedia of ghosts and spirits rosemary Ellen Guily stated:

Analyses of pieces of ectoplasm aroused suspicion. Several critics have declared that the substance was either chewed paper, gauze or other fabric, probably srygnula, or even animal tissues. Bero ectoplasm was most likely paper. And biologists from Harvard found that pseudopod Crandon was easy animal, carved so that it looked like a hand.

The magician Harry Houdini tried to expose spiritualists Scam, once remarked that he could not imagine that the Lord would allow the emergence of such disgusting substances from a human body.

In the twentieth century, the ectoplasm was investigated in detail by specialists for the observation of psychic phenomena. It is known that psychics are fraudsters singled out the ectoplasm, is made of strips of muslin, of a mixture of soap, gelatin and egg whites.

In fact, don't believe the skeptics word for it. Just look at the pictures of the alleged ectoplasm and make your own conclusions.

El Cuco anthropomorphic creature hairy creature hurting people restless spirit the manipulation of the actions of the victim the unusual shape of the eyes

El Cuco

El cuco (cucuy or, Coca, cuca, Coco) was a mysterious monster, a Ghost, who is mentioned in scary stories for children in many Hispanic and Lusophone countries. For its cultural value it is similar to the American Bogeyman, and the Bogeyman from Slavic folklore.

El cuco has a gender, though to distinguish it in appearance of the monster is impossible. While the folk names of beings of different sexes are different: cuco is a monster of a male cook and female .

The myth of El cuco originated in the countries of Portugal and Spain. The Spanish word "cuco" ("coco") comes from the Portuguese "Coco" ("côco") – the so-called Ghost with a pumpkin for a head. The word "Coco" is used colloquially to refer to a human head in Portuguese and Spanish. Also "Coco" means "skull". The word "cocuruto" in Portuguese means "crown" (and "top", if we are talking about a hill or mountain). With the Basque language "gogo" is translated as "spirit." In Spanish mythology "Crouga" is the name of an obscure deity who gave gifts.

In many countries of Latin America monster often called the Cuckoo ale. In Northern new Mexico and southern Colorado, where the predominant Hispanic population, being called "the Coco Man".

El cuco kidnaps and devours children. He can swallow the child immediately, leaving no trace, and can, as a Ghost, to dwell in him and to lead nowhere. Monster comes to the naughty children, climbs on the roof and watching them.

This creature is often compared with the devil, opposing guardian angel. There is a version that originally El cuco was the spirit of a deceased person.

The generally accepted description of El cuco does not exist, because in different countries he is depicted in different ways. All descriptions of the creatures agree that it is very scary to watch. It is described as a shapeless figure or a hairy monster that hides in closets or under beds. In the middle ages at festivals being portrayed as a woman-dragon. In Brazilian folklore, the monster is depicted as a humanoid female alligator called cuca.

In Portugal, the head of El cuco is traditionally depicted as a carved vegetable lantern made from a pumpkin with two eyes and a mouth and a candle inside. Also it is presented in the form of a warrior carrying its own severed head.

Interestingly, in 1498, a sailor, Vasco da Gama called the fruit of the Polynesian palm tree, "Coco", thinking about the mythical creature. The word "coconut" comes from here.

The image of this monster many times been used in different cultures, ranging from the work of Francisco Goya, 1799, entitled "the Coming El cucuy" to the contemporary novel of Stephen king's "the Stranger" ("The Outsider", 2018).

Extrasensory perception circumstance perception

Extrasensory perception

In the modern world psychics in a narrow sense of the word we call people with psychic abilities.

Usually the term "psychic ability" combines such phenomena as:

  • Clairvoyance (or the ability to obtain information in addition to the mechanisms of perception and channels known to science and that modern scientific tools, including information about past events and future);
  • Telepathy (the brain's ability to transmit thoughts and images to another brain at a distance directly, without the use of any known means of communication);

Since ancient times, there were shamans and mystics who tried to predict the future or unravel the mysteries of the past and present. In order that others implicitly believe in the truth of these predictions, they surrounded themselves with an aura of mystery. So now it is traditionally believed that psychics get their knowledge from the "astral", "ghosts world", etc. which, according to the logic of the majority themselves as psychics, it is impossible to identify, not having the same gift. Mainly thanks to such allegations now ESP default include into the category of pseudoscience. For example, Wikipedia gives this definition:

Extrasensory perception (ESP, ESP) (lat. extra — "above and beyond", "outside"; sensus "feeling") is a term used for many alleged paranormal forms of perception or abilities.

That is, modern science denies the existence of "astral", "world of ghosts" and "sources of information" for the psychic, and for some reason, on the basis of this denies the possibility in principle circumstance perception.

But it was not always so. And to understand how you came to such conclusions, it is necessary to consider the history of studies of extrasensory perception.

The first society of "psychic research" of these phenomena were created by scientists between 1880 and 1890. They included such famous scientists as richer and Flammarion of France, Myers and Gurney from England, and James from the USA. First used techniques taken from the practice of spiritualism. Resorted to the "abilities" spiritualistic mediums, which produce mental effects and "communicate" with the spirits of the dead. But despite the use of instruments and the ingenious methods of control, the results remained highly controversial. In fact, it was very difficult to distinguish the true effects from dexterous manipulation. In the end, had to leave this approach and go to more severe methods. The study of paranormal phenomena began in the laboratory.

To study these phenomena was based Parapsychological Association. Her task was not to "prove" the reality of psi-phenomena, but rather to contribute to the study of phenomena called "anomalous". In 1969, the seriousness of the work of the experimenters and their energy led to the fact that the Parapsychological Association was accepted into the American Association of scientific progress.

This area is newly recognized as a scientific discipline, had many names: in Germany and the United States - parapsychology in France - meta-psyche, in the USSR, bioinformatics, etc. recently it was proposed a new name - Pelagia. It allows you to integrate all information related to the so-called psi-phenomena.

Pioneers in laboratory research of psi-phenomena were L. L. Vasiliev at Moscow University and Ryan at Duke University (USA). L. Vasiliev tried mainly to establish the existence of a link between hypnosis and extrasensory perception, his staff also collected a number of observations relating to the telekinesis. Ryan gave a scientific approach, laying in its basis the use of the devices and exposing the results of a systematic statistical analysis.

Since the first experiments in the late 20-ies of the rein, studies in this and related areas made it possible to gather large amounts of data. The results of the statistical analysis obtained in many experiments, no one can remain indifferent. For example, research by Pearce-Pratt (Pearce-Pratt, 1934) on telepathy included four series of experiments in which the subjects were located from each other at a distance of from 90 to 230 metres. A series of 25 Zener cards were presented 74 times, i.e. a total of 1850 was presented. The result: 558 correct answers that 188 cases more than would be expected according to the theory of probability. Statistical analysis of this result shows that the probability that the number of correct answers is less than 10-22.

In the experiment aimed at the study of foresight, Schmidt (Schmidt, 1969 ) used an apparatus, which provide full automation experience. Of the four possible light signals the device is chosen randomly a single. He was recorded as their choice, and the answer of the test, which was offered before the advent of the light signal to guess what it will be the signal. During the first series of experiments three of the subjects carried out a total of 63066 attempts, and then another 20000 in the second series. The results were such that the probability p was less than 10-9 for the first series and less than 10-10 for the second one.

Other studies dealt with dreams and the ability to modify their contents by the action of the agent on the sleeping percipient. Most of these experiments were carried out in the new York Medical center Maimonides (Krippner, Ullman, 1964). The subject is located in a soundproof room, asked to lie down, relax and sleep. Previously to his head were attached to the electrodes to determine the time of onset of paradoxical sleep. As soon as the phase of this sleep agent, concentrating all his attention on a random manner, tried to "pass" it to the sleeping percipient. Then was awakened and asked to tell what the dream or what dreams he saw. In 9 of the 12 studies were obtained statistically significant results.

One of the most important places in parapsychological research is the experiments carried out under hypnosis. French scientists Jean and richer, even with the 80-ies of the last century tried to identify the relationship between extrasensory perception and hypnosis, but only in 50-ies of our century research in this region became systematic, thanks to L. Vasiliev of the USSR, Falero in Finland, Rizla in Czechoslovakia, Kakeru and Honorton in the United States. Different methods have been used to compare the results obtained by the subjects during hypnosis without it. About 50 years ago (Van de Castle, 1963) was consolidated the results of 14 studies with Zener cards conducted eleven groups. Under hypnosis from 44400 answers panned out, 9785 (i.e. 905 is more than could be expected due to accidental coincidences).

As in dreams, in hypnosis, the more frequent the psi-phenomena is explained, apparently, by the fact that a lowering of the level of barriers that exist during wakefulness. Thus, falling under the influence of the hypnotist, the subject becomes more receptive.

The results of studies and main hypotheses

One explanation of the possibility of psychic abilities each person belongs to brand (Brand, 1975) and Honorton (Honorton, 1978 ). According to their theory, anyone can optimally implement unicestwienie the perception by one or more of the following conditions: you need to relax, to disconnect, as far as possible, from all influences (images and impressions) and external activity, to try to come to a state of receptivity “to open” towards certain attitude and at least for a moment want to feel a psi-condition. It is through such tools that help to focus on your inner world in a state of openness, and can supposedly manifest the human ability to psi-phenomenon.

Stanford, by developing a similar idea, believes that the psi-function is one of the elements of normal human nature. Therefore, spontaneous manifestations of extrasensory perception is only the tip of the iceberg. Under the visible portion hides a lot of actions and events, which can also be attributed to the use of psi-abilities. Stanford calls them instrumental responses with the participation of psi-abilities. We are talking about "happy cases", which could be mistaken for coincidence: for example, you missed the bus, so stayed at home, waiting for the next bus do you remember one of my friends who have not seen, and then, sitting in the next bus, suddenly meet face to face with the friend who, as it turns out, decided this day to go by bus, which I never did. What is this, a happy accident? According to Stanford, our body constantly as if scouring his surroundings, trying to find means to meet their needs. In this sweep can be used as psi abilities, and normal sensory and cognitive processes.
Once a person finds the right tool, it includes a mechanism of behavior that begins to operate to meet identified need. For example, in the above example, the person who wants to meet his friend, unconsciously did what needed to he got his wish.

Although research in the field of parapsychology has received the official status and many of the results point to the existence of psi-phenomena, skeptics continue to Express various critical considerations.
First of all, the questioned experiments allegedly gave statistically significant results. Indeed, in the history of parapsychology, there are many questionable cases. Some subjects were found to be cheating, others after several years of experience admitted in the tricks to which they resorted. Sometimes the scientists themselves falsified the results of their experiments.
It was later discovered errors in the methodology of the experiments. Poorly implemented touchscreen control signals; the subjects were not isolated from each other; the material had defects that allowed incorrect to evaluate the results; a selection of paintings-targets produced a non-random manner; the researchers made errors in records, etc.

The most common reproach to the skeptics was the fact that for a sufficiently large number of data, even small differences between obtained and expected results become significant. But most often raises the question of the reproducibility of the experiments. The experimenter, repeating the experience with the same subjects and under the same conditions, not confident in getting the same results. Comes in a set of factors related to subjects, with the material with the experimenter and by the psi-phenomena.

Finally, many critics point to the lack of theory and practical applications, and even to consider the existence of psi-phenomena is impossible owing to their incompatibility with accepted scientific theories.


As a result, scientists do not deny that sometimes individuals exhibit the phenomenon of extrasensory perception, is not confirmed just a mystical way of getting information to these people.
Of course, now most people who call themselves "psychics" are actors working for the public, which may present as a group of people and one person who asked for help. Their activities are based on well-known laws of psychology, described the technique of "extrasensory perception" has little in common. In its activities, these "psychics" use to the human tendency to interpret the General and ambiguous descriptions of personality as applicable only to themselves, not realizing that the same description fits to almost any person. This effect is called forera, also known as the Barnum effect (both effects are also called subjective or personal confirmation). This term was proposed by the psychologist Paul Miles out of respect for the circus entrepreneur p. T. to p. T. Barnum, who was a great master of psychological manipulation and other techniques based on the characteristics of the human psyche.
A "real" circumstance the perception of appears in people in ordinary life or stressful situations. It used to be called intuition. In the psychological conceptions of Jung's intuition is considered as one of the possible top features of the personality which determines the relation of man to himself and the world around them, making them vitally important decisions. That is intuition — the ability to direct the attainment of truth, without the prior logical reasoning and without evidence. I.e. our intuition as a sixth sense, and as a way of processing the information received from the "aggravation" of one or more of the available senses.
Therefore, ESP can be studied in a strictly scientific methods. And to study extrasensory perception can be:

  • the study of the peculiarities of the psyche of the studied individual to understand "aggravation" of the senses which leads to an increased perception of the world, subject to the results of this perception;
  • the identification and study of new channel information, provided that the transfer is not possible by known methods.

Fairy anthropomorphic creature flying creature hurting people makes you wander the distortion of time the little creature the transition to another world turns into an animal


Fairy in Celtic and Germanic folklore is a mythical creature metaphysical nature with inexplicable, supernatural powers, leading secretive way of life, but sometimes intervening in everyday life and often causing harm.

Fairies are also called wig (witch), peri, fairy, pixie, etc. it is believed that the word "fairy" was borrowed from old French "faerie", covering everything that is somehow related to the residence and activities of the groups of the mythological "little people" (faie; late — fee). The source of the French term is Latin fata, as used in the feminine gender in most romance languages, which was derived from fatum ("predicted", "prophetic").

According to the encyclopedia of Celtic mythology and folk beliefs about fairies that existed among the Irish and Welsh, almost indistinguishable from each other. Here and there the abodes of the fairies was considered as the hills, although in Wales the place of "fairy hill" was often occupied by lakes. In Ireland, the Welsh fairies, though they fought and intermarried with each other, was considered polyestertape. Those and other kidnapped children from people by stealing them right from the cradle, and their offspring, on the contrary, threw up in the family of ordinary mortals. Here and there fairies could cast spells on men and women. And the Irish and the Welsh fairies loved music and dancing, spending life in incredible luxury and splendor. Another significant feature of their similarities - tiny growth, but this may not be more than the result of literary tradition, started by none other than Shakespeare. In the true folk tradition and the gaels, and Britons have the growth of the fairies, at least not below human.

In the second half of the nineteenth century fairies have acquired not only anthropomorphic traits of appearance, but also wings. Also the fairies began to attributed various magical abilities, from turning themselves into animals to restore the darkness and the manifestations of uncommon strength.

Regarding the origin of fairies in the folklore of various peoples, there are significant discrepancies at different times and in different places they believed the souls of the dead, demons, angels, creatures of an intermediate or separate steps of evolution, the aliens from other worlds, spirits of nature, etc.

Fairies firmly in the culture of different peoples was reflected in literature, music, movies and games. Now the fairies clearly described as small, good creatures, spirits of nature, with magical properties. These views are ingrained in people through the promotion of the image of fairies in fairy tales and cartoons. This image has become largely mythical. Various phenomena, which previously was associated with the fairies, now called "poltergeist" (throwing rocks, blowing the candles, dropping utensils from the shelves, blow the house smoke), "aliens" (kidnapping and joining with him in an intimate relationship), "anomalous zone" (death, entering the Kingdom of fairies, may be here for up to 900 years that seem to them only one night), etc. Thus, the native fairies and their antics in the past, they were replaced by representatives of modern mythology. However, in Germany and the UK is still possible to find people who met the fairies (and even photographed and videotaped). In addition, from time to time, there are tangible evidence of the existence of fairies in the form of dead (often mummified) bodies along with the bodies of Chupacabra, mermaids and aliens.

Familiar drinking the blood hurting people turns into an animal


A familiar is a supernatural being from legends of England in the 1500's and the 1600-ies. They were referred to as small animal-witch's assistant.

This animal was used for spying or intimidation. This was considered a demonic entity in the guise of an animal. For the medieval European witch-familiar standard was black cats, black dogs, hedgehogs, rabbits, owls and mice. In very rare cases the familiar is not an animal, and in human form, but it is easily identifiable with very pale skin, black clothes, and malicious behavior.

Fire poltergeist burn marks fire with no apparent source spontaneous combustion thermal effects on the body

Fire poltergeist

To the fire phenomena can be attributed to three main types:

In this article we will describe the phenomenon of a fiery poltergeist.

Poltergeist (from it. poltern — "to make noise", "knock" and Geist — "spirit") is a term used to denote phenomena of unknown nature associated with noise and knocks, spontaneous movement of objects, spontaneous combustion, etc. it is believed that the poltergeist (unlike other ghosts) is tied not to a place but to a person — usually a child enters the stage of puberty (in the case of the latter, referred to as "agent" or "focal person"). It is believed that the poltergeist does not cause significant harm to the person: it can hurt, but not kill.
In addition to the other ways it can manifest itself thermally (temperature change items up to icing or fire).
Victims of the fire poltergeist sometimes become residents of individual apartments, sometimes entire cities. The flame flares up instantly, without any reasons and in the strangest places.


Incidents that can be classified as a poltergeist, has happened throughout recent history. During this time there was no strong changes in the manifestations of the phenomenon. Fire poltergeist were studied in conjunction with other types of poltergeist.
For all time of existence of the phenomenon was proposed many hypotheses explaining this phenomenon.

  • At things and people, one way or another, affected by various entities not of our world (the souls of the dead, essence of the subtle world, the devil, demons, etc.).
  • Any manifestation of poltergeist – a household accident (short transactions, etc.)
  • The presence on the surface of the flammable chemicals are prone to spontaneous combustion.
  • To the accommodation or its owners put the evil eye.
  • At things and people, one way or another, affects the person with the ability of pyrokinesis.
  • Through hypnosis someone affects residents and visitors of the home, suggesting their invisibility and impunity creating unrest.
  • A scientific approach to the study of the phenomenon was applied only in the first half of the XX century, when the work was started the Nandor Fodor and Harry Price. In the 30-ies of XX century psychologist and parapsychologist Nandor Fodor advanced the theory that the poltergeist is not caused by "spirits," but the human mind where suppressed feelings (anger, annoyance, anger). Fodor's was the first to formulate the idea of a poltergeist as "mental projection" painful (or a developing adolescent) psyche that outputs to the outside of the inner aggression.
  • Physicist David Turner suggested that poltergeists and ball lightning — a phenomenon of nature and will cause similar physical effects.
  • Parapsychologist William J. Roll and physicist Hal Puthoff from Duke University believe that the movement of objects without apparent reason can be caused by abnormalities in the so-called the zero point field.

The features of the phenomenon, making it unexplained:

  1. Ignition occurs suddenly and without apparent source.
  2. Frequent eruptions of flame retardant items.
  3. Often the surrounding objects is damaged slightly, even if they are highly flammable.
  4. On the body to burns of different degrees.
  5. Often the fire does not just burn items, and burns on them symbols, letters, words.

"Scattered sparks" over the pipe, he (through the pipe) appears in the hut in the guise of a handsome guy or a friend of the husband of the mistress of the house (sometimes in the form of a recently deceased husband, if a widow yearns for him).

Women begin to dry, wither (the serpent like "sucks" them of their power, and sometimes even crushes, eats them).

It is indicated that the Transbaikalian peasants said:

"Gestated her [woman] of snakes, having grown up, is living with her. At night he flies, swinging from itself sparks of fire, and brings home mistress gold. But it is not necessary to leave the snake alive for a long time, otherwise it will suck from a housewife all of her blood, so when a dragon trained enough wealth to its owner, she needs to leave him sleepy in the fiery furnace and burn" <Loginovsky, 1903>

And Zabaykalsky believed that the fire dragon is a negative aspect of a house/yard of the spirit: he brings home the wealth, but wealth is fragile, dangerous (Kursk, Vologda):

"If a man wants to get rich, he needs to obtain an egg from the rooster and carry it around six weeks under his left arm, after which the eggs hatch snakes. The night here must lie in uninhabited hut, where there are no icons, for example in the bath. In the dream, the devil is inferior to serpent for a certain period, on certain conditions. The fiery serpent is the man the money, they are going on drinking... When the time comes, you can still be saved, cut the "snake" vein under the neck. And the man and the serpent, knowing this, are hanging in there, but rarely the person overcomes the serpent. More often he dies, pierced through the flames of hell snake"

Often the appearance of the fiery serpent means a quick death on the roof he lands.

*you can find references from historians that sparkling fiery snakes often called comets and meteors.

Ghost anthropomorphic creature changes form goes through walls predicts the future restless spirit translucent


To the phenomenon of ghosts usually carry the souls of dead people or mythical beings (in traditional representations), and, according to some versions priseltsev from space or from a parallel world, "energetic substances", etc., manifested in visible form or other in real life. It is assumed that the responses are real, not supernatural, objects, the nature of which is unknown to science, or images of real people, animals, objects in a parallel reality, in the past or in the future.

Testimonies about encounters with ghosts known since ancient times. In this article we review the history of the concept of "Ghost", highlight the main features of the phenomenon and look at the most famous hypotheses to explain it.

In the dictionary of Ephraim, the meaning of the word "Ghost" is defined as:

  • What seems, dreaming; vision, figment of the imagination. // Perrin. Accel. Someone or something just resembling anyone, anything.
  • Unclear, vague outlines, contours. // Image of someone, something, seemingly in the imagination.
  • Something unreal; a Mirage, an illusion.

In the traditional conceptions of many peoples "Ghost" or "Ghost" – the soul or spirit of a deceased person, manifested in visible form or other in real life (from the invisible and intangible presence until almost realistic observations).

It is not known when the first mention of ghosts in the legends and oral retellings.

It is believed that the first documented mention of seeing ghosts belong to the times of Ancient Egypt and Assyria. Cuneiform tablets of the Assyrians tell of the spirits Utukku, bringing terror to the Assyrian city. As the ancients used to think, these ghosts appeared when the man had died a painful death. Because many Utukku were stripped of limbs, had traces of wounds or torture and screamed in pain. The Egyptians, like ghosts called Boo. In order to get rid of them, it was necessary to offer restless spirit fresh meat.

In Europe, the legends of ghosts are known for more than two millennia. As the ancient Assyrians, Europeans believed that the Ghost becomes a man, died a painful death. For example, the Irish feared Tasha spirits of people tortured in the torture chambers, and executed on the gallows or the chopping block.

Since there were many witnesses of this phenomenon.

The phenomenon is found everywhere. Almost every country has its abode of ghosts from the locks to the rooms in the hostel.

The concept of "Ghost" summarizes the entire class of phenomena having apparently different origins.

It is used in cases of observing the following phenomena:

  • The human figure, perhaps reminiscent of the deceased, is able to fly, pass through walls, suddenly appear and disappear in the eyes of the beholder (shadow people)
  • Some unidentified creatures that have similarities with man, but on the anatomy or the features from it is great (Jack the jumper, Mothman).
  • Observed in the air of human faces or other parts of the body (the phenomenon of black hands).
  • Ghostly animals (mongoose, Jeff, Ghost dog) or phantom vehicles (buses, planes, trains, "the flying Dutchman").
  • A small unidentified flying objects in the form of small lights or clouds observed in the vicinity of the witness.

Sometimes the appearance of a Ghost accompanied by a sharp change in temperature (sudden unexplained cold), bad smells (sulfur, miasma), anxiety of animals, disruption of electronic equipment. However, it is believed that more explicitly affect the person (e.g., bruise) or surrounding objects (e.g., moving) Ghost can not, therefore, with this effect connects two phenomena: the "Ghost" and "poltergeist". It is worth noting that the Ghost is credited with the property to scare to death some people (for example, to pursue his murderer until, until he dies).

The emergence of the phenomenon may be linked:

  • geographically (e.g. the haunted house);
  • calendar (for example, a full moon or a certain calendar date);
  • to a particular case (for example, warns of the dangers);
  • to a particular person (for example, a relative of the deceased).

In terms of fixing phenomenon can be identified:

  • witness hears sounds from an unknown source;
  • the witness feels the presence of someone;
  • the witness sees the silhouette with implicit shapes or a completely clear image.

Sometimes ghosts can be recorded on video, photo and audio equipment at the time of direct observations, but often they only appear on the record.

Among the hypotheses to explain the phenomenon, we can distinguish the scientific and the mystical.

Scientific version:

  • A figment of the imagination. This version includes mirages, hallucinations, illusions, etc. regardless of the reason.
  • Natural causes. Close to the previous version. This includes, for example, the sounds of wind, accepted as the howls of the Ghost.
  • Technical features of the equipment. To this version are defects in the photographic film, instruments, glare, and similar artifacts.
  • A figment of the imagination of narrators (i.e. intentional deception).
  • The structural features of the haunted houses (for example, the presence of secret rooms).
  • The hoax (i.e. the artificial creation of circumstances perceived by others as abnormal).

Mystical version:

  • Soul. According to the beliefs of many religious and mystical directions, man is composed of material body and immortal soul and spirit (some fittings). And the Ghost is either a soul that is not able to calm down and go to another world, or the spirit ("astral shell"), which normally "breaks" on the fortieth day after death, but if there is "energy" from some source, then the spirit can exist for many years. This also applies to the version that the appearance of a Ghost is a kind of "message" of the deceased, which can carry a warning or other information about the future.
  • Aliens from parallel worlds. This includes demons, space aliens, "energy of nature" images of the future or the past, etc.
  • Images. It is believed that if you imagine any image is very bright, it may partially or fully materialise, i.e. a Ghost is a partial materialization of images. According to different versions, it is capable as a small group of people (e.g. the mentally ill in a special state of consciousness – hence the terrible fact, the appearance of which uncontrolled; or "enlightened" they like having the gift to materialize desired objects), and any representative of mankind. A small manifestation of these abilities is the projection on the film different images with my mind.
  • Astral double. This version is slightly similar to the previous one. She says that, by strong impressions and emotions, you may receive "double" the person who is experiencing these emotions.
  • It/Id (in the terminology of Groddeck and Freud respectively). A fragment of the psyche, finding identity, escaping outside the shell, and punished for something of its bearer. Ghost-It often takes the form of an animal (particularly a tiger, as in repeatedly opisyvaetsya the case of Mrs. Forbes), sometimes causes on the victim scratches, wounds and the stigmata; may push the victim either for murder (the person responsible for the original trauma), or to suicide.
  • The element of heredity (Family Gestalt). A Ghost generated by a generic or family-hypnosis: the mental formation built by many generations, separates from the main body and, finding a life, settles in a mansion or castle. The older the family, the "telesne" Ghost. The latter requires constant attention, feeding them, otherwise, it withers and disappears.
  • Historical film or "memory space". A kind of collective memory, part of what was called in the middle ages, the Planetary Mind. Historical visions arise on battlefields (and sometimes individual misdeeds) and remind voiced by three-dimensional film. Characters of representations of this kind are automatically, although, oddly enough, react to the material world.

Scientific version try to approach each manifestation of the phenomenon separately, and mystical version – to explain all cases. But none of the hypotheses could not fully cover all known cases.
In any case, the phenomenon of ghosts has a huge variety of evidence and can be considered one of the most common anomalous phenomena.

Ghoul bloodless victim drinking the blood hurting people living dead turns into an animal


The word "ghoul" in Ushakov's Explanatory dictionary has a value of "werewolf, browbeating people, vampire." In many works, the word "vampire" is synonymous with the term "werewolf", and in the sense of "vampire" and "vampire" began to be used not so long ago.

The word itself appeared in the Russian language in the first half of the nineteenth century can be attributed to a number of the neologisms coined by writers and poets. His appearance in the Russian language this word has the duty to A. S. Pushkin. He used distorted the basis of the word "werewolf" (a man turning into a wolf, werewolf) in the poem 1835 from the cycle "Songs of the Western Slavs".

Glowing people the glowing areas of the body

Glowing people

To the fire phenomena can be attributed to three main types:

In this article we will describe the phenomenon of glowing people.

The phenomenon of glowing people considered those cases, when a healthy person or part of the body, and from wounds comes the light. Sometimes the glow comes from the corpses. Often from contact with such a person can start to smolder or ignite objects. To attribute it to spontaneous combustion is possible only indirectly.
The earliest mention of glow a person can be found in the religious sources. As an example I may quote a fragment from the biography of St. Lidwina written by Thomas a Kempis (C. 1380 - 1471 in the German religious writer, monk Augustine): "And though she always lay in the dark and the light material was unbearable for her eyes, a divine light was pleasant to her; that's why her cell often wonderfully lit up and it seemed that it is full of material, lamps or torches. And it was not strange that even her body overwhelmed with God's brightness".

But if then the glow was attributed only to the elite, but now the phenomenon has changed in its manifestations and effects in humans.
There are several types of manifestations of the phenomenon:

  • The glow and heat from the wound. Flammable items, presentation to the wound, can illuminate. An example is a case told by a resident of Chita Valery Sukharev. In 60 years of hunting he met a man who had a broken arm. In low light in the room was seen as the right hand of this man glowed in the dark, and with the fingertips dripping glow, like the flame of the acetylene torch. Hardly has he put his hand on the newspaper, ustilovsky table, paper in this place turned yellow and became brittle, as if it had been exposed to high temperature or acid. In complete darkness it became evident that the strange spots on the face, which under normal lighting has a grey shade, also glow only very weakly.
  • Man begins to glow after exposure to radiation. The glow of cold, harm to others is not. An example can be considered the case, told Troitskii customs. Placing the documents on the car, found that the passenger - resident of Kazakhstan - fonit and glows in the dark: the level of ionizing radiation women exceeded the natural level of background radiation up to 40 times. Further investigation revealed that the passenger was undergoing treatment for thyroid in one of the resorts of the Chelyabinsk region, where in her body injected radioactive iodine-131.
  • Glow a person's acquired after some disease or manipulation of doctors. The glow of cold, harm to others is not. An example would be the following case: in 1913, in the Taganrog circus acrobats rehearsing unsuccessfully jumped and broke his leg. After recovery I noticed that from both hands, shoulders and head began to radiate an intense yellowish-bluish light.
    You can also bring the case mentioned in the study by Gould and Pyle, “Anomalies and curiosities in medicine”, published in 1937, when women suffering from breast cancer, from the patient's chest area went light. It was so bright that even covered the clock face at a distance of meters.
  • People emits light at will. Often the glow of cold, harm to others is not, but sometimes a person can so something to burn. An example can be considered the known case of St. Petersburg, when people not only could wish to emit light, but also knew how to acquire this ability. The ability of the allocation of light, according to Mr. S., affects everybody who drinks an infusion of the herb Herba damiani, exported them out of India. Drink the infusion should be performed within two weeks and is associated with a particular regime, abstinence from wine, meat, and sour all. Two weeks later, the results seem required: the body of the subject during sleep start to run the lights.


  • Glow people – a special case of spontaneous combustion or pyrokinesis.
  • The cause of luminescence is microbe Photorhabdus asymbiotica, causing a disease similar in its symptoms to bubonic plague: the body of the patient covered with large ulcers. Doctors say that insects died from the new diseases began to glow in the dark. According to doctors, most likely, will start to glow and ulcers on the bodies of patients, if time does not begin treatment.
  • The man glows too bright aura.
  • This phenomenon is associated with the phenomenon of bioluminescence - a special case of the well-known luminescence. A faint glow (the second type of bioluminescence) are common to all living organisms - plants and animals.

In many textbooks and scientific papers on toxicology describes the wound, emitting radiance. The reason is, as a rule, the presence of stripes of luminescent bacteria or secretions that contain the biochemical substances, luciferin and luciferase and ATP (adenosine-phosphate), which are usually not connected, and if they connect, they begin to emit light.

  • The cause of luminescence is self-hypnosis. The principle is the same as stigmatic.
  • Dr. Protti, who made a lengthy statement regarding his observations over a lady Monaro, suggested that her poor health together with fasting and piety increased the amount of sulphides in the blood. Human blood emits rays in the ultraviolet range, and the sulphides can be made to luminesce with ultraviolet radiation— this explains the splendor of the chest ladies Monaro (the times, 5 may 1934).

Gnome anthropomorphic creature hurting people pass the device or knowledge the little creature


According to the mythological dictionary, dwarves in the lower mythology of the peoples of Europe are called small anthropomorphic creatures that live most often in the mountains (less often-underground or in the forest, and sometimes it is believed that their homes are hidden in a parallel world connected with ours). The origin of this word is disputed: it is taken from the Latin language from "gēnomos" – "underground dweller", or from the ancient Greek "ΓνώΣη" - knowledge.

Gnomes were popularized (according to another version – invented) by the alchemist Paracelsus in the XVI century, although they were found much earlier in the folklore of European peoples. Paracelsus describes the dwarves as being two spans tall (about 40 cm), extremely reluctant to make contact with people and able to move through the earth's firmament with the same ease as people move in space.

Ideas about such creatures exist in many cultures, but not in all languages they have the name "gnome". For example, the Germans call them "zwerg" ("zwerg"), the British - "dwarf" ("dwarf" in the sense of "dwarf"). From the Old Norse "dvergr" came the old High German "twerg". According to Vladimir Orel, both of these names are derived from the Proto-Germanic "đwerȝaz". In French, dwarves are called "nain", in Italy - "nano", both words from the Greek "vᾶνος" — "tiny". Other European languages have their own words that are not related to any of these roots – Polish "krasnolud", Finnish" kääpiö", Czech" trpaslík " and others. Philological studies also indicate that in the Russian literature of the early XIX century, along with the" gnome", the variant"Karl" was often found.

According to ancient legends, dwarves were originally lower magical creatures, but they were not physically small in stature. The idea of dwarves as creatures of small stature appeared after the spread of Christianity.

The first literary sources where dwarves are mentioned were the Icelandic heroic songs of the 13th century from the collection "The Elder Edda", as well as the text of the “Younger Edda”, compiled by the skald poet Snorri Sturluson, who lived at the turn of the 12th and 13th centuries. Both literary works contain mythological tales of the 8th-10th centuries, as well as elements of the German heroic epic of the early 13th century.

Dwarves are usually considered spirits of the earth and mountains, guarding underground treasures. In alchemy and occultism, they are considered the spirits of the earth as the primary element, and, accordingly, the elementals of the earth. Because of these beliefs, dwarves are often given various supernatural powers, including supernatural skill and wealth.

They describe dwarves in different ways. Their height varies from the size of a finger to the height of a small child. Male dwarves usually wear long beards, and are sometimes endowed with goat legs or crow's feet. Men, dwarves are not very beauty, unlike the dwarf women (called "gnomey").

Description of gnomes in the Book of Fictional Creatures by Jorge Luis Borges:

"Popular imagination imagines them as bearded dwarfs with coarse and comical features; they are dressed in narrow brown caftans and monastic hoods."

According to ancient legends, dwarves, like fairies, love to tease people, but at the same time do them more good than evil. They can present some magical artifact, indicate the place where the treasure is hidden, or fulfill some small request or errand.

In modern culture, dwarves are remembered and loved. They are found in large numbers in fantasy stories of literature, movies, and computer games, and on the lawns of Europeans and Americans you can find figures of garden gnomes installed there as guardians of the earth. At the same time, pop culture has gone far from the original ideas about dwarves and is based rather on the images described in famous science fiction works (which, for example, often contain jokes about female dwarves, giving them a beard, mustache, or simply indistinguishable from the male body structure). These gnomes do not differ much in their behavior from fairies, brownies and other mystical creatures. They are rarely distinguished by any characteristic features other than their height or a caricatured "dwarf" appearance, reminiscent of the aforementioned garden figurine.

Golem animated object anthropomorphic creature helps large creature


Golem (ft. גולם) - a character of Jewish mythology, a being of one of the main elements, or a combination of them, enlivened by Kabbalistic magicians with the help of secret knowledge. The name comes from the word gel (Hebrew :ללם), meaning "raw, raw material" or simply clay.

This is a clay giant, which, according to legend, was created by the righteous Rabbi Leo to protect the Jewish people. By the most common one that occurred in According to the Jewish folk legend of the artificial man ("golem"), the creature is created from clay to perform various" black " jobs, difficult assignments that are important to the Jewish community, and mainly to prevent blood libel by timely intervention and exposure. After completing its task, the golem turns into dust. Escaping from the control of a person, the creature shows blind self-will (it can trample its creator, etc.).

It is indicated that the old chronicles give a fairly detailed recipe for creating a Golem. But it is indicated that one or more details are omitted, as well as the full text required for the animation:

To perform the magic ritual, it was necessary to wait for a certain position of the stars, then wait another seven days and find a suitable clay. The creation must necessarily involve four elements: earth (clay), water (in which the clay was soaked), air (to drain the clay) and fire (to burn).
The exact date and time of the creation of the Golem is indicated: according to the Jewish calendar, it was the 20th day of the month of Adar 5340, 4 hours after midnight (March 1580). The creation of the Golem took place in the districts of Huhle, Branik, or Koshirze, i.e. on the bank of the Vltava River, not far from the city gates of the then Prague.
Having fashioned the Golem out of clay, Rabbi Levi walked around it seven times counterclockwise and read the formula from the 2nd verse of the 7th chapter of the book of Genesis, which refers to the creation of man, then said the same thing, but in the opposite direction. In order to breathe life into the dead matter, at the beginning of dawn, the rabbi put into the Golem's mouth the so — called shem-shem-ha-m-forash (The Name of the Unnamed, or Tetragrammaton), which can be calculated with high wisdom. Rabbi Levi's Shem consisted, as it should, of exactly 72 words.

Gremlin breaks technique hurting people the little creature


Gremlin (eng. The Gremlin) is a mythical creature from English folklore, which he hates, and breaks equipment. It is believed that the word "gremlin" comes from the Irish gruaimin - "evil little Joker," or beer Fremlin's, which allegedly liked to drink pilots.

It is believed that the gremlins have been told the fighter pilots a Spitfire participating in the battle of Britain in 1940; some sources claim that the stories about these pests technology began to spread during the first world war. However documentary evidence of this available. The earliest printed mention of these creatures can be found in the article of the Royal air magazine "Royal AirForce Journal" of April 18, 1942, written by Hubert Griffith.

A year later, in 1943, the former RAF pilot Roald Dahl, after retirement, published a piece called "Gremlins". The book tells that one day during the battle over the English channel by a British pilot named Gus saw on the wing of his plane a little man with horns on his head, hard Swarovski wing. That is Roald Dahl is the author of the term "gremlin".

With this began the popularization of the myth of gremlins, which soon went beyond the internal tales of the pilots. The book fell into the hands of Walt disney, and he immediately decided to remove the cartoon. The PR Department of his company began to actively promote the rumors about airplane gremlins throughout the country. The film never saw light, but invented by disney characters were often found in the promotional materials of the forties.

The appearance of the gremlin in the contemporary view is quite peculiar. Usually it is described as a small creature growth of only about 20 inches (50 cm) with hairy legs that it walks very quietly, almost inaudibly.

It is believed that gremlins like to stay in the engines of cars, planes and other equipment. For their appeasement, it is customary to pour a mixture of beer and motor oil in cans of canned food, which is put close to the technological unit. Bikers sometimes tied bells to your vehicle, because it is believed that gremlins don't like the sound of bells and lose their strength (in some versions of the bells are dragging them into themselves). It is believed that gremlins not only to break motorcycles and other vehicles, but also deform the asphalt.

Currently, the gremlins often serve as characters of movies, cartoons, books and computer games, but in real cases, encounters with the unexplained, described by eyewitnesses, almost not mentioned.

Gremlins are reflected in psychology. "Gremlin effect" is a situation in which theoretically an efficient technique mysteriously crashes. Currently this term applies not only in technology but also in programming, and even occasionally in the description of the collective psychology.

Guije or Guije are creatures from Cuban folklore. Cuba is known all over the world for its impressive cave systems. These creatures are also thought to have shared space with primitive humans, competing for resources, until finally being driven out by Homo Sapiens, but are still found today. 

They are described as rather short: three to four feet (0.9-1.2 m) tall. They are black, hairy and gifted with amazing strength. They were also associated with ponds and pools of still water, and their presence was considered a bad omen.

In the legends of the city of Sagua La Grande, compiled by Gomez de Avellaneda, there is such a colorful description of the behavior of Guye:

"It is said that there is a pool near the Barrio de Guata, where the river is at its deepest level. This place has become the habitat of a monster that devours anyone who dares to bathe in its waters, leaving no traces other than blood splatters on the surface.

 What might this monster look like? For those who have seen it, it is a mix of a human and an APE with powerful claws and sharp teeth." 

The mention of bathers who were apparently killed in the water is reminiscent of reports from Oklahoma Salier lake that involved swimmers and boaters apparently captured by a water snowman.

Incubus anthropomorphic creature hooves induces pregnancy it feeds on life energy sexual relations with the victim turns into a human turns into an animal


In the medieval European tradition, the demon is a male tempter. Incubus, from Latin incubare — "to lie on".

He usually attacks women and rapes them in their sleep. During the day, they are disembodied shadows, since these creatures do not have their own body, but can materialize in the body of a dead person, or use human flesh to create their own body from it, or even incarnate into the body of a real living person.

In most cases, the Incubus is described as an ugly creature, often resembling a goat (one of the images of the devil), although this appearance was attributed to most demons during the middle ages.

Thus the Compendium Maleficarum (1608) says:

"An Incubus can take on both male and female forms, sometimes appearing as a man in the Prime of life, sometimes as a Satyr; before a woman who is known as a witch, it usually takes the form of a lustful goat."

Other images include incubi in the form of a dog, cat, deer, bull, ROE, bird, especially a crow or stork, and also in the form of a snake. However, even the animal appearance did not prevent the Incubus from having a carnal relationship with a woman.

Some believed that it was possible to get pregnant from an Incubus, since the demon collects the semen of corpses or the semen emitted during night eruptions or Masturbation, and " thanks to speed and knowledge of physical laws, preserves this seed in its natural warmth."

In the medieval treatise "Hammer of witches" it is stated that demons as succubi collect male seed, store it in their body, and then as incubi fertilize women, according to the position of the stars, in order to produce offspring, initially predisposed to evil under the influence of the planets.

Thus, children could be born from it (half people, half animals). Sometimes children of incubi are described as no less ugly than their parents (such descriptions coincide with descriptions of parasites, such as worms and tapeworms).

Others, on the contrary, believed that it was impossible to get pregnant from an Incubus, since its seed was nothing more than a fake.

Kaleuche restless spirit water body


Caleuche(Caleuche) this is a mythical Ghost ship from mythology and local folklore on the island of Chiloe, in Chile . This is one of the most important myths about the culture of Chile.

According to Chilean legend, it is a large Ghost ship that sails the seas around Chiloe (a small island off the coast of Chile) at night. 

According to one version, the ship is endowed with magical powers and has its own consciousness and mind. It became the permanent residence of the souls of all the dead in the sea.

The ship looks like a beautiful and bright white sailboat with 3 masts of 5 sails each, always full of lights and with the sounds of a party on Board, but quickly disappears again, leaving no trace of its presence. 

The Ghost ship is also known for its ability to move underwater, as is another famous Ghost ship, the flying Dutchman.

There are different versions of the legend:

  • A popular version says that this ship collects the dead from the water and gives them a new life on Board as crew members who will spend eternity at parties and celebrations.
  • Another version says that a mythical ship will also appear in the seas of Chiloe to charm fishermen with wonderful music and thus attract them to turn them into slaves-crew members who will be cursed for all eternity, carrying one leg bent on their back.
  • Just as the idea is widespread that it is a ship of the dead and slave sailors, there is a version that it will also be a magic ship on which the Chiloe sorcerers hold their parties and transport goods after this journey. sorcerers return from a journey they make every 3 months to improve their magical abilities. However, it is said that only sorcerers can approach it and only use the Chilote seahorse as a means of transportation, since by order of Millalobo (the equivalent of the sea king in Chilean mythology), other creatures are forbidden to Board it or access the ship by other means.
  • Another theory is that the Ghost ship's crew makes magical contracts with certain merchants, guaranteeing them prosperity in exchange for services such as using their homes for parties or other illegal or dark purposes. 

Because of this version of the legend, when a man in Chiloe quickly becomes rich, it is often attributed to him making a contract with the Kaleuche team. 

Similar rumors spread after the 1960 Valdivia earthquake, because some homes were not affected by the fires that later engulfed Chiloe. 

In the same decade, it was said that the sound of a ship dropping anchor could be heard around the homes of many successful merchants in the Chiloe archipelago. Supposedly it was the sound Clausentum delivering the goods and treasures to those with whom the contract was made. However, most people rejected this supernatural explanation and instead placed the responsibility for the merchant's prosperity on mortals rather than supernatural smugglers.

Later term projected thermography (projection thermography) - A neologism derived from the 2002 American film The Bell, a remake of the 1998 Japanese horror film of the same name.

Thoughtography appeared at the end of the XIX century under the influence of spiritualistic photography. But unlike the latter, it has no connection with spiritualism.

One of the first books to mention "psychic photography" was Arthur Brunel Chatwood's The New Photography (1896). In his book, Chatwood described experiments in which"images of objects on the retina of the human eye can so affect it that a photograph can be obtained by looking at a sensitive plate." The book was criticized in a review published in the journal "Nature".

The parapsychologist Hiward Carrington wrote in his book "Modern Psychological Phenomena" (1919) that after studying many psychic photographs are created fraudulently through substitution and manipulation of photographic plates, double printing, double exposure and chemical screens. But Carrington also said that he believes some of the photos are authentic.

Skeptics and professional photographers consider psychic photos to be fakes or the result of camera or film flaws, exposure, film processing errors, glare, flash reflection, or chemical reactions

Mermaid anthropomorphic creature fish tail hurting people scales water creature


From ancient times to the present day there are stories about humanoid beings that live on water. Description and situation of the meetings differ in particulars, but General features can merge them into a single phenomenon of "mermaid".

It is believed that the roots of the legends of mermaids date back to the mighty Babylonian deities associated with the sun and the Moon. The Babylonians believed that the Sun and the Moon, ending its daily journey across the vault of the sky plunged into the sea. The God of the Sun Oannes was the body of a person, his crown was made from fish head, and the robe of fish scales. Oannes gradually supplanted the God EA, is already half fish-half human, and we can assume that the origin in Greek mythology myths about mermen, causing winds and storms associated with it. And the moon goddess Atargatis, half woman-half fish, was the forerunner of the mermaids.

In Greek mythology there were also sea creatures, polariy-polozheniy. They were called Serena. They represented the charming but deceptive sea surface, under which hides sharp rocks or shoals.

In addition, in Greek mythology described the sea deity, daughter of Nereus and the oceanid Doris, in appearance resembling the Slavic mermaids.

It is impossible to give an exact historical period when Slavic Nations came ideas about mermaids. It is believed that the word "mermaid" is derived from the name of the feast of the commemoration of the ancestors – the Mermaids (lat. rosalia), the first mention of which is contained in the Laurentian chronicle (under 1068). It was thought that in these days of a mermaid out of the water and they can get in contact.

Later, in the 16th century, in Russia there are characters that differ from the traditional humanoid Slavic mermaids. Spirits of water, who "from the head to the waist of a person, from waist to feet somany splash" and are descended from the Egyptians who drowned in the red sea in pursuit of the troops of the "Pharaoh's fierce" for Moses and the Jews during the Exodus. Their horses turned into palakona of Polaris. It's the damn dead people with a dull and husky magical voice, destined to stay in this form until the end of the world. They were called "Faraoni".

In Japanese mythology there is a description of the immortal beings such as fish Ning. In ancient times it was described as a creature with a human face, a monkey with a mouth full of small teeth, a fish tail and a shiny Golden scales. The training session had a quiet voice similar to the singing lark or the sound of the flute. His meat had a pleasant taste, and those who tasted it, reached extraordinary longevity. However, catching a Ningyo are believed to bring storms and bad, so fishermen who caught these creatures, let them back into the sea. The ning, beached, was an omen of war or disaster.

In Western Europe it was widely believed that Maritime maidens have no souls, and that they want to acquire it, but can't find the strength to leave the sea. There is a legend Dating from the V century, in which the mermaid, wishing to gain a soul, daily visited the monk on a small island near Scotland, and prayed with him. But the virgin of the sea was not able to leave the sea, and tears has gone into it.

Also in Scottish and Irish mythology there are creatures called Selkies, a human — like seals that have some similarities with the sea maidens.

In various sources from ancient times, there were reports about a meeting with sea virgins or similar creatures, prepodnosyaschy as true stories.

XII century
In the Icelandic annals Speculum Regale (XII century) there is mention of the beast "margin" that lives off the coast of Greenland. The description is typical of the virgin of the sea — to the waist looks like a woman with long hands and soft hair, from the waist down she has the tail of a fish, scales and fins.

In an English chronicle, there is mention of a "sea person" ugly appearance, caught in 1187 on the coast of Suffolk.

XV century
A well known story has lived for some time on land a sea maiden. It is reported that in the early fifteenth century in Holland, a storm destroyed the dam and the sea flooded the land. Local residents found stuck in the shallow waters of the sea the virgin and took her to his own. They taught her to wear clothes, eat human food, knitting, bow to the cross, but failed to teach to speak. The mermaid lived on land for fifteen years. When she died, she was buried according to Christian tradition. This story is retold in the book of Sigo de La Background "Wonders of nature, or a Collection of unusual and note worthy events and adventures in the world of bodies, alphabetic order located".

Christopher Columbus during his first voyage (1492-1493) wrote that he saw off the coast of Guiana three sea maidens.

XVII century
In the ship's log Henry Hudson, who he was, floating near the shores of the New world, there is a record of what his two sailors, Thomas hills and Robert Rayner, 15 Jun 1608 saw a Sea maiden. They told the captain that from the navel up her chest and back were as a woman, she had very white skin and long black hair, and her tail was like a Dolphin tail. There is a record in the logbook of Henry Hudson:

Today one of the members of the expedition noticed aboard the mermaid, and called his comrades to look at her. All the while the mermaid swam close to the ship, it is strictly looked at the people. Then we swam into the open sea and somersault several times. When the mermaid dived, the men examined her tail. It resembled the tail of a Dolphin, but was speckled like a mackerel.

The captain of the English Navy Richard Wilburn wrote in his memoirs that in 1610 he first met a strange creature in the Harbor of St. John in Newfoundland. The creature had a proportional and beautiful female face, on his head were many blue stripes, like hair. The upper part of the creature was human, the lower Whitburn not seen. The creature has behaved quite friendly. When it tried to climb into the boat by the sailors, he was hit on the head with an oar, since it was watching people from afar.

There is a legend about Francisco dela VEGA Casar, who lived allegedly in Lierganes (Cantabria) and from childhood showed the ability to swim better than others. In 1674 he during bathing were carried away in the strong currents and went missing. In February 1679 near the Bay of Cadiz fishermen caught the humanoid observed for several days in water. The creature looked like a tall man with pale skin and red hair. It had scales down its back and along the belly. Between the toes was brown membrane. It was noted that he roared and growled; twelve men were required to hold it. Three weeks being spent in the monastery of the Franciscans, where it produced the rite of exorcism. In January 1680 he was taken to the Asturias, where the mother of the missing Francisco and his brothers recognized the merits of his son and brother. When he lived in the village, we ate raw meat or fish, almost never spoke. In 1682, fled back to the sea.

In 1682, near the town of Sestri (Italy), was caught by a "marine man". "He lived only a few days, crying and emitting plaintive cries, and all this time there was nothing to eat or drink".

XVIII century
In some edition of 1717 was a depiction of the creature that resembles the sea maiden, of whom it is written that it was caught on the coast of Borneo, in the administrative district Amboyna. In length the creature was 1.5 meters, "a body like eel." Lived on the land a little more than four days in a barrel of water from food refused. Periodically produced squeaking sounds.

In 1737 in the journal the Gentleman's Magazine was written that near the English city of Exter fishermen pulling ashore the network, found that it confused an unknown creature with a length of 1.2 m with a tail "like a salmon" and beat him with sticks. "This creature, dying, moaning like a man. Eyes, nose and mouth it was too like a man. The nose, however, was slightly flattened". The body was exhibited at Exeter.
Journal Scot''s magazine for 1739 reported that the crew of Halifax was caught on the coast of the island of Mauritius a few humanoid sea maidens, fried and ate them. They their meat compared with beef.

XIX century
8 September 1809, in the newspaper the Times was printed the message a school teacher that twelve years ago, on the way from the city of Sorso County (Caithness) in the direction in Sensig head (North Scotland) he saw in the sea a mermaid. Reminiscent of a naked woman, she sat on the hard, jutting out of the sea cliff brushed by her light brown hair, and then dived into the sea and was seen no more. An eyewitness described her indistinguishable from a human being and expressed the hope that his message will help science.

In 1819, in Ireland, in the surf, near the shore, I noticed a sea maiden. On the shore began to gather many people, until one of them shot at the creature "with piercing cry and went under water".

In 1830, on the island of Benbecula in the Hebrides (UK) locals collecting seaweed, noticed in the water near the shore, the creature, "representing a kind woman, only in miniature." After unsuccessful attempts to catch him, someone launched a stone at him. Few days to the shore at a distance of 3 km from the scene nailed the corpse of an unknown creature. A local resident so he was described: "the Upper part of this creature was as well well-fed child of three or four years, but with abnormally developed Breasts. Hair - long, dark and shiny, skin white and soft. The lower part of the body was a tail, like a salmon, but without scales". Many people witnessed the presence of this corpse, the local Sheriff Duncan Shaw was ordered to sew for him a shroud and make the coffin. This story is described in the Carmina Gadelica by Alexander Carmichael (1900).

31 Oct 1881 in American Newspapers wrote that on the shore was found an unknown creature. A reporter for Boston Newspapers, he observed the corpse, described it as "Above the waist it is a complete likeness of a woman. Below the waist the body of this being is totally the same as mullet," but in the hands of the creatures were not nails, and claws like an eagle.

In 1890 the mermaids noticed the three near the Orkney Islands near Scotland. In one of the bays of a mermaid seen by hundreds of witnesses. In the words of one of them passed a newspaper reporter, " was six or seven feet tall, black, white body, two arms, and when she is in the water, you might think that this floating man. Several times she was located, obviously, on a submerged rock, and then it was possible to see the movement of her hands and as she waved her hand".

Mermaids are found not only in ancient myths and Chronicles, but also in the contemporary true stories and eyewitness accounts.

Several times noticed the mermaids in 1913 in Lyman Portland, near the island of hoy, Orkney Islands, too.

Another mermaid had been observed in 1926 in the United States, in a Creek that emptied into the Mississippi. In any case, sir, under the Windows who proceeded the brook, complained to the newspaper on anxiety, which was causing this person not only him but also the drivers driving along the coast highway.

In 1978, 15 July, the Australian newspaper "Melbourne sun" printed a note on the fisherman, the Filipino, who, when he pulled the chain, suddenly became to help mermaid, emerging from the water.

Now stories about the meeting with the mysterious mermaids had become more infrequent, but still exist to this day.

The phenomenon has two different manifestations: a humanoid creature and a humanoid creature with a fish tail. As mentioned above, each of these species originates from the mythology of certain peoples. For example, in Slavic and Greek folklore, they had the appearance of humanoid creatures, mostly female, living in the pond. Often this was considered the spirit taking a form. The peoples of Europe, Japan, and in the Greek and Slavic folklore there was a description of people with a fish tail that lives in the pond.

The behavior of both types of creatures completely diverse from complete indifference to man to the action, which could lead to a threat to life and health. However, if you do a certain ritual, or simply to help such a creature, it can repay in the response after completing the request.

Beings of both kinds are ordinary "human" life. For example, in one of the true stories indicated that mermaid on the shore of the washed cloth, and seeing that she was being watched, dived into the water and disappeared.

Often witnesses determine that they face an unknown creature, only by circumstantial evidence, often seeing glimpses of him. For example:

I was fishing on the boat. The corner of my eye see in the water the shadow of the big one. Thought the fish and looked hair flashed. Decided – girl dives. Was waiting for that to pop up next to someone, but never came. Still don't know what it was.
Constantine, Voronezh oblast

It is evident that the ground on which the creature was alleged to be unknown – "women's hair, but did not come up to breathe," which is an unnatural behavior. Sometimes being able to see, and then, in addition to unnatural behaviour, there is a strange appearance, such as excessive paleness or other abnormal color of the body.

She sits, white as a sheet, I have her hand grabbed and she was cold. I hand straightened, and she jumped and disappeared.

Suwestvuet a number of hypothesesthat attempt to explain this phenomenon. They vary by type of evidence.

Hoaxes and fakes
These include mainly pictures of the mummy, the living entities and similar tangible evidence.

Hallucinations and errors of perception
These include testimony without material evidence. This category can be attributed to ordinary beings living on our planet, who were mistakenly taken for unknown. For example, it is widely believed that the stories about the sea maidens is inspired by the observation of animals such as sirens (dugongs, sea cows, and manatees), dolphins and pinnipeds, allegedly from a distance indistinguishable from humans. In particular, it is believed that sea cow eating kelp, may be similar to the grey of the man-foxy fish with green hair.

There are also a number of mystical hypotheses that attempt to explain this phenomenon:

  • Alien beings who settled in the pond.
  • A parallel race of people that went with us in the evolution, having adapted to life in water.
  • The spirits that protect the water and living in it – embodied the souls of the dead with their boots on.
  • Werewolves that turn into creatures.

Also there is a hypothesis, not related to any of the above categories and apply to all types of evidence. According to her, there are some living organisms (animals), similar to the mythical mermaids that live near us, but scientists have not yet discovered them, and not described for any reason (for example, due to the small number of individuals).

The theme of water residents – one of the few in which you can find not only the eyewitnesses, but also a variety of material evidence suitable for research. Despite this, scientists still have not discovered evidence of the existence of living creatures that could be compared with the mythological mermaids. Severely hampered calm perception of eyewitness accounts of a large number of fakes and hoaxes, but this is all about the "unexplained" and "mermaids" in this sense is not original.

Mothman flying creature glowing eyes missing head wings


"Mothman," or in English "Mothman" (Mothman) has been known since the sixties of the twentieth century. It is found in the list of famous urban legends of America, but beyond the story goes.

He looks like a winged creature with a height of approximately 2 meters with a cylindrical torso. Wingspan is about three meters, but eyewitnesses say that they don't look like a bird, and resemble the membranous wings of a bat. According to most witnesses, the creature is not the head, but there are two burning bright red eyes, which are located at shoulder level.

It all began on November 12 1966, when five men digging a grave in the churchyard Clendenin (West Virginia), saw a flying humanoid figure. The next message was from 15 November 1966. Two young couples from point Pleasant, Roger and Linda Scarberry and Steve and Mary mallet told the police that he saw a large white creature with glowing red eyes. They described it as a large flying man with wings about 3 meters, which were chasing their car.

In the next few days began to receive similar statements. For example, two firefighter described what he saw as a "huge bird with red eyes".

The most famous case, describing a meeting with moth man, occurred at point pleasant on the eve of the collapse of the Silver bridge which killed 46 people. It is believed that the appearance of the Man-moth is associated with this accident and he was the harbinger of the tragedy.

In the USA there are more than a hundred messages about this creature.

Was evidence in Russia. For example, in 1908 a traveler Arsenyev saw a huge dark creature with wings emerged from the mist swept over the river. But some of Inessa Grigorieva, came to the village Anisimovka in 1997, saw a huge bird with feet like a human.

What phenomena can be attributed to the man-moth? From the point of view of mysticism, the researchers believe that this creature is crypted (real animal, whose existence is not proven, or considered impossible in this area), similar to Bigfoot, Chupacabra or Nessie. Reports on the observation of this creature is very small, so the identity to prove difficult. This creature is almost never caught on film, and did not leave obvious traces. On these grounds it can be attributed to ghosts or aliens. Thus, it makes sense to emphasize the person-moth to a separate phenomenon.

Skeptics point out that from the point of view of aerodynamics is a creature not fit to fly and, most likely, is a fiction. Among other versions include hallucinations (or affective illusions), observations of real birds (for example, the family owl, or a kind of crane).

Reports of the appearance of the man-moth continue to be still, although it happens not as often as in the beginning, at the birth of a legend, so the researchers will have the opportunity to study this phenomenon.

NGOs geometrically regular or complex patterns technical device the glow on the water unusual sounds water body


The term NGO (unidentified floating object or unidentified submerged object) was established by analogy with the term UFO (unidentified flying object). In this regard, we will consider in this article the objects, the ideas of a technical nature and not related to the category of unidentified living organisms.

In the descriptions there are different kinds of objects flying out of the water or plunging into it, and a strange glow. This subspecies occurs from the hypotheses, determine the source of the UFO under water.

In the second half of 1940-ies from Scandinavia, Sweden and other Northern European countries began to receive reports of so-called "launch ghosts" (cigar-shaped UFOs leaving traces of fire), which went under the water.

For example, it was reported that on 19 July 1946 Ghost rocket disappeared in the lake of Colmar (Northern Sweden). Authorities a few days examined the lake but had found nothing.

In the book by A. Sanderson, "Invisible residents" brought more than 30 cases, when the captains of the ships, the sailors working for them, employees of the coast guard, fishermen and local residents reported a decrease in unidentified flying objects and immersing them in rivers, lakes, seas and oceans. These UFOs could be several. Sometimes before you enter the water, the UFOs performed maneuvers over the ships.

In March 1966, the witnesses on the Bay of St. George's (Argentina) saw the height of 12 meters from the water cigar-shaped object 20 meters in length, otvlekavshie, such as metal. A few minutes, the object was hanging motionless, and then flew towards the ocean, leaving the water.

In July 1969, the watch and the captain of the ship "Sparrow" observed in the Atlantic ocean, as at the height of 200 meters above the ship slowly flew an unidentified object in the shape of an ellipse with a diameter of 25 meters, the appearance of which lost radio contact. Accelerating an object is dropped and entered the water at a distance of 5 miles from the ship, and then for a few minutes in the water was observed the glowing circle in the place where the UFO fell into.

In 1972, on the Mediterranean coast near Savona (Italy) many people observed a disc-shaped object with a diameter of about 100 meters, flying in a circle. It was noted that occasionally came from it rays of light in the direction of the sea. After some time under water at a distance of 200 meters from the shore the lights come on, and the object disappeared in the water.

There is evidence of UFO sightings from the water. It was reported that, taking off from the water, the UFO made maneuvers with the ships before you leave. There are cases when, rising, unidentified flying objects took place through a 3-meter layer of ice. The ice remained large fragments, some of them then falling with UFOs, located at an altitude of tens of meters.

"The Diary of Andrew Blackgama" (1824) it appears that on 12 August 1824 the watch ship of Bachama floating in the Atlantic ocean, I noticed that out of the water at an angle of 7° off round, highly luminous object and disappeared in the clouds. After some time, precisely also flew another similar object.

In the course of "operation High jump" in 1946, the squadron of Admiral Byrd's United States came under attack UFOs taking off from the water.

In August 1965, command of the Soviet ship "rainbow" was in the Red sea, watched 2 miles from the ship out of the water flew a fireball with a diameter of 60 meters and stopped at an altitude of 100-150 meters from the water surface. The ball went up the water column, which then fell into the sea. After a few minutes the object flew towards the center of the red sea.

In August 1970 a group of 4 people under the leadership of oceanographer Agarkova, conducting hydrological exploration on the Kronotsky lake (Kamchatka), was moving across the lake in a motor boat, when the city had formed a "dome" of the rising water. Out of it flew a gray oval object with a diameter of 40-50 meters, which slowly rose to a height of 200-250 meters at an angle of 70-80° to the horizon and staying for some time, with great speed flew towards the ocean. While the object was hanging in the air, the boat engine was not working.

3 Aug 1977 in 27 miles from the North-East coast of Cuba, the crew of the tuna boat "Hermes" in twilight watched under water appeared first in front, then the right, left and back of the ship the light bar. Captain Valentino Peyrat: "what was Happening was so terrible, we feel so helpless far away from the shore and in the face of obvious danger, which is completely confused. Young men wept and prayed. Suddenly, at two cables ' lengths from the water with the sound of the opened bottles of champagne flew glowing teardrop-shaped object and quickly approached the ship, hovering at a height of 50-100 meters. Making a circle, he fell meters to 20 and poured us a soft green light. Then also, lightning jumped up and, flying away for 2-3 cables, abruptly went under water... I radioed the base and told to take a course home."

"Quaker" (or "wah", or bio-duck) – suspected source unknown underwater sound vibrations of low frequency range, sometimes fixed sonar installations of marine vessels. Recorded different sounds, but a large number of some of the recorded signals does not seem to croaking frogs.

The first cases refer to 1970-th years. The peak of the message accounts for the years 1975-1980. After 1990, not a single officially registered if no, what caused, most likely, the reduction of tensions with the conduct of marine exploration and military duty submarines.


The assumption about the global direction finding of ships

Since this phenomenon was first noted naval forces of the USSR during the cold war confrontation, an assumption was made about the deployment of the adversary system of global direction finding of ships. As a result, the Navy of the USSR was organized the program "Quaker" in this issue until the eighties of the XX-th century, after which the program was closed and all materials were sent to the naval archives classified as "Secret". However, this version did not receive its confirmation in the fact that the deployment of such systems would be extremely expensive and ineffective.

The source of the sounds – animal

According to one of the basic assumptions regarding causes of phenomena, the source of these sounds — sea animals neglected or perhaps unknown species. Some researchers suggest that Quakers can be some of the cetaceans is known to be excellent using gidroakustiki. In the Quakers "recorded" killer whales, and even extinct by now basilosaurus. According to other opinions, Quaker can be a giant squid of the family Architeuthidae, that would explain a number of peculiarities of the behavior and complexities of discovery, as on a number of assumptions giant squid can hunt large marine mammals (for which, probably, take submarines), and boneless body type makes them difficult to detect by regular surveillance devices.

In 2014 research Denise Rish and groups of scientists have confirmed this hypothesis. The source of mysterious sounds were whales having the name "southern small whale" (Balaenoptera bonaerensis). Scientists attached to the bodies of several whales sensors with hydrophones operating in a wide frequency range and recorded sounds. Then analyzed the records and concluded that they are identical to the previously recorded marine biologists and teams of submarines strange "quakenet".

Attempts to contact other civilizations

This hypothesis involves the assumption of the existence of underwater civilization, or the underwater base of an alien civilization trying to make contact.

It is believed that none of the above hypotheses have not found enough evidence to clearly explain all cases.

The appearance of "Quaker" is connected with change in structure

Depending on the temperature (and it can vary due to solar radiation, weather conditions, currents), the water acquires different properties. Including changing its volume, and this causes the same croaking sounds and glow. On a small scale the process is transparent, but in a gigantic water expanse he manifested clearly. Some analogy to the sound of "Quaker" is the sound blown through a hole in the balloon, in this moment, too, there is a change in volume.

Passing by the ship disturbs the water and stimulates its transition from one state to another. Glow water can be explained from the point of view of physics, but if you don't go into details - it is noticeable when there is a concentration of the energy of a large number of excited molecules. The process can begin at one point and gradually spread, so luminous spiral formed rotating wheels, circles, etc.

New swimming facilities

There is a hypothesis, according to which NGOs represent a new top-secret swimming facilities undergoing test.

Underwater civilization

Ideas about the existence of underwater civilizations known since ancient times and also developed science-fiction writers.

Professor Ivan T. Sanderson developed the hypothesis of an underwater civilization attempting to communicate with humanity.

Interference of waves in the water column

The researcher of the phenomenon Kurt Kalle found that site, where he often watched the underwater glow, to coincide with seismic zones in the World ocean. Calle hypothesis is that when weak earthquakes any one point on the bottom of the sea or ocean gives rise to a conical wave with a top at this point. When the wave reaches the surface of the water, part of the wave is reflected back, then from the bottom, etc. Being coherent with the source wave, they form the interference pattern.

Kalle can't explain how a wave can trigger the illumination of what relationship may be between intensity and wave characteristics, but believes that this process creates the effect of running light.

Based on the described cases, their subtypes vary greatly and, apparently, have a different origin.

Of all hypotheses the most plausible, that is easy to check the illumination of the biological organisms forming circles on the water. For its verification it is necessary to organize research expedition to one of the areas often of their appearance.

About the "Quakers" and some of the objects flying or fly into the water, accurate conclusions can be done according to the results of the investigation of each fact separately.

Night crawlers long limbs missing head the little creature

Night crawlers

Night crawlers (also called the Fresno alien, "skin crawler", or just Fresno Nightcrawler "nightcrawler"), usually referred to as cryptids (an animal or plant whose existence is possible, but not proven by academic science). Other examples of cryptid – yettie and Mothman.

It is believed that for the first time these strange creatures were videotaped in California Fresno County (hence the name) in March 2011, and then a year later in Yosemite national Park. However, in the web you can find videos of these creatures, and Dating back to ninety years. Since then, they quite often got into the lens of the cameras. At the moment not aware of any case when they shot someone in person.

Night crawlers look like low (about 1.2 meters) whitish creatures with tiny (or no) heads, small bodies and disproportionately long legs. According to the records, they are completely devoid of hands. They are usually noticed near the marshes.

Opinions about the origin of these creatures diverge. Most researchers believe that this unknown species, but there are those who consider them aliens who settled on our planet.

Of rational hypotheses that attempt to explain the entries with these creatures, it is necessary to highlight the deliberate falsification, as many researchers and observers have noted that some of the recorded creatures like jumping people with his head and hands in the pants, some people on stilts.

Night Morsi

Fictional characters from books G. Lovecraft (1890-1937).

And then they threw me and when I, like Icarus, he started to fall, it would Wake up so terrified that I was terrible the idea to go to sleep again.

"Night Morsi" were black, thin and rubber like creatures with horns, tails as spikes, wings like bats, and all without faces.

They were voiceless, and their only real torture was used to tickle my stomach, before he grabbed me and away away. Somehow, I vaguely knew that they live in black holes, esperada peak of some incredibly high mountains.

They were in flocks of about twenty-five or fifty creatures, and sometimes transferred me between themselves. Night after night I dreamed the same nightmare, only with minor differences — but before awakening, I've never managed to reach those horrible peaks".

Olga-Horhay hurting people large creature


Mythological headless fat worm that live in the desolate deserts of Mongolia and killing cattle and people at a distance, presumably by poison or discharge electricity. The Mongolian name, literally translated as "the worm, similar to the colon of a cow". In English literature and film, known under the name of eng. The Mongolian death worm.

It is believed that the worm inhabits Western or southern Gobi. In the book of 1987, "Altyn Saadah city police Department" Ivan Mackerle described it as moving under the ground, creating a wave of sand on the surface that enable it to detect.

The worm becomes active in June and July. He often comes to the surface when it rains and the ground is wet.

In Mongolia believe that touching any part of the worm will cause almost instant death and severe pain. It is said that the worm is often to hunt camels and otkladke eggs in their intestines, and eventually acquires its reddish skin.

Its venom supposedly corrodes metal, and local folklore tells of the passion for yellow. The worm also, as they say, prefers local parasitic plants such as Goya.

In 1922 in Mongolia went to the Central Asian scientific expedition by the American Museum of natural history. It was headed by American Professor and paleontologist Roy Chapman Andrews. In 1926 he published a book called "On the trail of ancient man" (eng. On the Trail of Ancient Man), which contained the first report by Olga-horoe. Impressed books Andrews, Soviet paleontologist and science fiction writer Ivan Antonovich Efremov wrote a story about a deadly worm that was first published under the title "Allegory-horhay" in the author's collection "5 compass points" in 1944.

After publishing articles in the Czech automotive engineer and cryptozoology enthusiast Ivan Mackerle in the early 1990-ies, Olga-horhay has become a popular subject of cryptozoology.

Zoologist Yuri K. Gorelov in 1983 found that the prototype Olga-horhay is Eastern boa (lat. Eryx tataricus).

The famous researcher of Mongolia A. D. Simukov wrote:

"Olga horhay in Csag the sujin Gobi is quite ordinary. Talking about it a lot, very afraid. If it appears in a Yurt – skachivat. On the surface it appears most often after rains when the ground is damp. In yurts Olga horhay appears for the most part under the buckets, where it is often damp. Hard to say about its toxicity. Color is defined as “a white brocade”. In addition to Olga horhay residents Csag the Gobi sujin spoke about the "dark Sul horhay" defining it as tailless lizard" (Simukov, 2008, p. 280). Given that "thameen soul" is the Mongolian name for the Eastern boa (Eryx tataricus), we can assume that Olga-horhay in this case – or some other animal, or a young boa.

Its main function is to ensure the well-being of all the inhabitants of the house and livestock. For example, there was a belief that if a widow with young children was not cow the spirit of the house-owner brought her to the barn and milk for the children was provided. But to see the cow could only be the mistress, for others it was invisible. According to another legend, if the cattle were starving for lack of food, he sent her a bundle of hay, which itself was rolling down the street and was in the barn, although its doors were closed.

If there was something hurt, then it is night, "pressed" sleepers: they had nightmares, in the chest after the dream was heavy, or he wore them in her sleep hair and licked his forehead. Unloved horses spirit nights confused mane and drove them to the stables.

A clear idea about the appearance of this house of the spirit did not exist, usually it was invisible, but could appear in anthropomorphic form: the grandfather or women, in the form of a grey cat or dog in a furry lump, etc.

Parallel world the transition to another world

Parallel world

Among the paranormal researchers often referred to the concept of "parallel world". It is used as explanation for sudden appearances and disappearances of UFOs, the sudden emergence in some areas of the unexplained creatures (from the Chupacabra and the Yeti up the Ghost), as well as in the description of the places that get people in anomalous zones or special state of consciousness. Thanks to the latest this concept can be attributed to unexplained phenomena.

According to modern scientific predstavleniyam, our world can be a multiverse, that is the hypothetical set of all possible real parallel universes, where parallel universe is a world that exists simultaneously with ours, but independently of him. The hypothesis of the existence of such "polyhedral" of the universe expressed by cosmologists, physicists, philosophers, religious figures and, of course, science fiction.

Even Democritus in the V century BC put forward the idea of multiple worlds. She met in religious texts (the idea of the world of the dead, where they live like us), and also in the myths of ancient times (Olympus, Asgard, etc.). Such theories are often found in modern scientific articles on theoretical physics (superstring theory), and - in all its diversity - on the pages of science fiction books and scripts.

Schitaetsya that the very concept of the existence of other worlds, different from ours, arose in the literature in the XVIII century in the story of Voltaire's "Candide", where one of the characters claims that "all is for the best in this best of all possible worlds". This is a controversial statement, since the phrase was used in a work rather for sarcastic ridicule of the philosophical concept of many worlds, where we considered the best. Probably the first was H. G. wells, published in 1895 story "the door in the wall", which tells about how the author has found a door which led to a strange place, with gardens, palaces and even people.

The idea of "doors" between worlds, in one form or another has existed since the ancient times to the present. The transition between the worlds is through portals, rituals, as well as using innate or acquired human abilities.

Described by scientists, science fiction writers and eyewitnesses to unexplained phenomena, parallel universes can be similar to our world, and be a region with its physical laws and logic of existence. In space they can be infinite, occupying an entire universe, or is concentrated in a relatively small area (e.g., room clearing, etc.).

Consider the methods of classification of parallel worlds.

Cosmologist Max Tegmark suggested, called the mathematical universe hypothesis, that any mathematically consistent set of physical laws correspond to an independent, but a really existing universe. And proposed the following classification of the worlds:

  • Level 1: worlds beyond our cosmological horizon (nemetallicheskie objects).
  • Level 2: worlds with other physical constants (for example, on other worlds Brany in M-theory).
  • Level 3: the worlds that arise in the framework of the "many-worlds" interpretation of quantum mechanics.
  • Level 4: ultimate ensemble (includes all the universes that implement these or other mathematical structure).

For worlds found in the literature can result in different classification:

  • Worlds beyond three-dimensional space.
  • Separate worlds, not tied to our universe.
  • Worlds as the implementation of multiple events.

Separately allocate Virtual world (simulated reality).

According to the esoteric, the multiverse is a system of "subtle States of consciousness", which go beyond the known physical universe. Such States are achieved through certain meditations, different spiritual and psychological practices or the adoption of some psychoactive substances, but sometimes appear spontaneously in ordinary life.

It is to the esoteric concept of the closest eyewitnesses, considering that they were in a parallel world. Next, we present a few such stories to illustrate typical descriptions of such worlds.

Not different from the normal environment

Was walking through the forest. Somehow whirled me that lost his way. See: glade. Stepped out there, he realized that the sounds all gone. I'm back to running. I then searched for that field specifically, but not found. Not in our world was.

Ivan Matveevich. Voronezh oblast

Such a description is usually typical for anomalous zones and the "lost places". Sometimes accompanied by a description of goblins, fairies and even mermaids. The environment (forest clearing, road, etc.).

White/black room

I then went home by car. Has long been dark. The lights we have on this site has never, so when the primer moving out in the darkness sinking. And here I'm going, how I feel some oppressive came. I stopped and decided to leave. As soon as the door opened and stepped outside, enveloped me, the light from all sides. Now nothing nebylo seen - only light. That comfort I had in that moment, he did not expect. From the sounds of just some humming was heard. I can't say in what kind of world I was and how much time passed but I woke up next to her car all in the same darkness.

Alexander, 2002

Such description is usually the case in cases of alien abduction, but occasionally found as evidence of the visit of a "light" of the world.

Moving through the fog

It was in the morning. I went to pick berries in the forest. We agreed with friends on povolena the tree to meet at the edge. I went down to the bridge our. Then there is the hill to climb up to the edge of the hand. Close, in General. So I go across the bridge, and there the fog is like milk. I'm still thinking about the bridge not to fall down. Passed the bridge go, but it's not up. When the fog is over, look at the village. Wasn't there srodu village ever! But here again - home. I was scared, my heart stabbed, and returned to the bridge.

Zinaida Tikhonovna

This is a classic description of the transition to a parallel world through the fog and the bridge. Emerging characteristic attributes are often present in esoteric practice.

The "gray" world

It happened when I was young. The street was hot summer days. I went to school with practices. When I rounded the corner towards home, I realized vnezapno that nature seemed to have lost paint. the world has become dull, almost gray. That I was quite scared in the yard does anybody nebylo. I sat on a bench and covered his eyes with his hands. Suddenly realized that I hear the noise of cars, birds singing. When I opened my eyes, the world was full of color, at the door sat grandmother, and there were people.


The transition into an alternate reality or a different time

One of the clients known in the capital of Peru – Lima doctor of medicine Raul Santana, suffered an unusual paralysis of the body. The disease came after the strange event with her and her friend. They went to the stone forest, take a walk. Walking through the forest, they noticed a brightly lit cabin and dancing people there. Girlfriend fun came to lit the hut, from whence abruptly pulled cold. Bold the patient opened the door and saw people dancing in costumes of the 17th century. Fun people introduced to the sultry Peruvian courage, she opened the door and tried to enter. But, dude, heard about the mysterious cases in this area, had to withdraw her from the door. So the girl was in the clinic Raul Sentano. Palsy was injured that part of the body, which was in the open door.

I could not sleep. Suddenly I saw through the bedroom window a strange glow over the station. I went out to the staircase. It was a very dim bulb and very quiet sound of the radio. The street was fresh. Yellow lights were also very dim. When I reached station, we found some strange old trains. People were quite small. I went to the platform without any hindrance. Went into the car and looked around. It turned out that it's just a train. Suddenly she started. I jumped it and went home. But when they came to my street, I realized that she looks completely different - there's our two-storey buildings and the street consists entirely of the private sector. I was a little scared. He returned to the station and again found the same train to go through her vestibule. After that I was able to get back on the street and go to sleep. Maybe it was just a dream, but it was very unusual.

Jan, 2005

Here are only the most common descriptions of such worlds. Certainly there are eyewitness accounts that differ from that presented above.

In addition to evidence of contact with parallel worlds of humans, as well as the penetration creatures of them in our universe, there are many stories about the disappearance of entire settlements. Some researchers believe that many of the missing people disappeared at the hands of a serial killer or mafia, and was lost in parallel worlds.

Is there a way to get into these worlds? There are many hypotheses, we will explain the most common.

Through spontaneously opening doors to a parallel world. According to this hypothesis, there are special places, which opens up the portals of the transition. The portal itself can be of different size depending on some factors, it can be fixed or to change the size depending on the time of day, year, or other factors. Researchers call these mesta anomalous zones, and in a life their called just "godforsaken places".

Through portals, opened by using a special ritual. This version is closer to the fascination with magic. it may imply that as the special reading of the text and require more complex conditions (full moon, certain objects, etc.)

Through the portal opened only for the spiritual sheath. This version adhere to esotericism. As a rule, travel to a parallel world happens in a certain state of consciousness (e.g., sleep).

The theme of parallel worlds is very large. Her develop not only researchers of the paranormal and esotericism, but also representatives of official science. We will update the article as new information becomes available.

Pishtako anthropomorphic creature hurting people the harbinger of death


A mythological figure in the Andes region of South America, particularly in Peru and Bolivia. In some parts of the Andes, pishtako is called harisiri, or nakak, or likichiri in the Aymara language. Pishtaco is derived from the local Quechua word "pishtai", which means "to behead, cut the throat, or cut into slices".

This is an evil man who looks like a monster, often a stranger, and often a white man, who seeks out unsuspecting Indians to kill them and insult them in various ways (primarily by stealing their body fat for various cannibalistic purposes or selling their meat).

Concern about body fat in the Andes region has a long tradition. The natives of pre-Hispanic origin so valued fat that there was a deity for it Viracocha (meaning sea of fat). It is also natural for the peasant rural poor to look upon flesh and excess fat as the very sign of life, good health, strength, and beauty. It is believed that the cause of many diseases is the loss of fat in the body, and the thinness of the skeleton is disgusting. Thus, the practice of the conquistadors to treat their wounds with the fat of the corpses of their enemies terrified the Indians. It was also believed that the Spaniards killed the Indians and boiled their corpses to get fat to lubricate their metal muskets and cannons, which quickly rusted in the wet Amazon.

The Andean natives feared the Spanish missionaries as pishtaks, believing that the missionaries killed people for the sake of fat, and then smeared the church bells with oil to make them particularly resounding. In modern times, similar beliefs held that sugar factory machinery needed human fat as a lubricant, or that jet engines could not be started without a drop of human fat.

Thus, the pishtako can be described as a creature that is found by the Indians mainly at night. It looks like a white man or a half-breed. He is well dressed, can be on horseback or in a car. He can speak kindly to the Indian or attract him in some way, but then somehow stupefy him, and then extract the fat from the Indian's body with unknown tools or just a knife. Traces of this operation are often invisible, but after meeting with pishtako, a person begins to lose weight, lose vitality and soon dies.​‌​​​‌ ​​‌‌​‌ ​​‌‌‌‌ ​​‌‌​‌ ​‌​​​‌ ​​‌‌​‌ ​​‌​​‌ ​‌​​​‌ ​​‌‌‌​ ​​‌‌‌​ ​​​‌‌​ ​‌​​‌‌ ​‌​‌​‌​ ​‌‌​‌‌​ ​‌‌‌​‌‌ ​​‌‌‌‌

The word "poltergeist" comes from nemeckih poltern — "to rumble", "to knock" and geist — "spirit". Literally, it translates as "noisy Ghost."

This phenomenon expresses itself in different actions: the noise, the sound, the sound of footsteps, spontaneous movement of objects, their spontaneous combustion, and such actions, emphasizing the presence of some invisible entity.

It is believed that this entity is not tied to a particular place, and to person. It is possible to poach (for example, in another apartment), the modern researchers such a person is called the "focal person". Most often, his role is a teenager or a child, but many contemporary and earlier cases such a strict relationship is not confirmed.

Researcher of paranormal phenomena of Gilan Sherwood believes that they are on the contrary required and allocates them to five successive stages of "aging" of the poltergeist:

  • touch
  • communication
  • physical
  • meaningful
  • aggressive

Upon reaching the fifth stage of poltergeist activity peaking suddenly fades and after some time there is again, starting the cycle from the first stage.

Servodata the manipulation of objects at a distance the manipulation of the actions of the victim the manipulation of the thoughts of the victim


Unlike extra-sensory perception, implying increased sensitivity to the environment and awareness of the information received, servodata involves conscious or unconscious manipulation of living organisms or objects without direct communication and without the use of special materials and devices. These phenomena often used the phrase "at a distance".
It can be attributed:

  • Telepathy (from al-Greek. τῆλε – "far away" and πάθος "feeling") –the hypothetical ability of the brain to communicate thoughts, images, feelings and the unconscious state of the brain or other body directly at a distance without the use of any known means of communication or manipulation.
  • Materialization – the ability to cause the appearance of the outside of the living matter of different degrees of consistency and level of organization, able to take forms of faces, limbs and human figures and objects, both complete and inchoate.
  • Telekinesis (Greek. τῆλε and κίνησις, literally "motion at a distance"), or psychokinesis (Greek. ψυχή — "soul", "heart", "breath"; κίνησις) is a term used in parapsychology to denote the ability of a person with one only the effort of thought to influence physical objects.

This can be attributed to:

  • pyrokinesis – the ability to cause a fire or a significant increase in temperature at a distance by thought, and the ability by the power of thought to control the fire.
  • levitation – a phenomenon in which the subject without visible support "floating" in space (i.e., levitated) is not attracted to the surface (earth, water, etc.).
  • teleportation of objects moving from one place to another instantly without existing in the intermediate points between them.

The above phenomena do not involve direct contact with the object or person, so the driving force of these phenomena is unknown.

Let us consider these phenomena in more detail.


Telepathy told in ancient times. According To N. Fodora itself "prayer may be considered as an attempt of telepathic communication with the Supreme being." In the same way proposed the idea that telepathy is the basis of intuition (e.g., intuitive likes and dislikes). The result of receiving and processing the brain's telepathic signal was considered to be the feeling of "look" or getting close.

Some researchers of the paranormal believe telepathy and suggestion, in cases when hypnosis is carried out at a distance, close phenomena. Myers called this phenomenon "telepathic hypnotism".

Still, some researchers believe that the phenomenon of telepathy not only exists in the human community, but also as the principle of information transmission between animals or between animal and man.

Attempts to explain the phenomenon

Since the XIX century there have been several theories that attempt to explain this phenomenon. One of the most popular theories was the so-called "wave theory". One of her supporters was sir William Crookes, the alleged existence of some "ether" waves of small amplitude and greater than the gamma radiation frequency, which, "penetrating" the human brain can cause in the brain of the recipient image, similar to the original.

Several hypotheses regarding the possibility of direct transmission of thought from one person to another developed by Sigmund Freud. He considered telepathy a rudimentary means of communication between people and possible "physical process, which was mental at the two ends of the communication chain." Freud's attitude towards telepathy was ambivalent. On the one hand, he saw it as a direct path leading to the depths of the subconscious, on the other – belonged to the phenomenon carefully for fear that experimenting with it analysts run the risk of being put on a level with the occultists.

Issues related to telepathy he was also interested in Carl Jung and Sandor Ferenczi.

Despite the interest in this phenomenon, scientists and researchers developed many theories of varying degrees of scientific, but convincing evidence for the existence of telepathy does not exist yet.


Psychokinesis is a term that combines any (macro and micro) phenomena connected with the impact of thought on matter, including: telekinesis, pyro - and creatines, Aero - and gerakines, biochemicals, teleportation, "milligray" (thoughtography), levitation, etc.

The term "telekinesis" was first used in the 1890 Russian paranormal investigator Alexander N. Aksakov. The author of the term "psychokinesis" is an American author and publisher of Henry Holt ("On the Cosmic Relations", 1914); it was popularized by American parapsychologist J. Ryan in 1934. Both concepts are at various times described and other terms: "remote influence" (eng. distant influencing), "remote influence thought" (eng. remote mental influence), "direct conscious intent" (eng. direct conscious intention), "thought to control matter" (eng. mind over matter), etc.

Supporters of the reality of telekinesis argue that this phenomenon has been known since antiquity and is mentioned in the Bible, particularly in Acts (release of SV. Paul and Silas, 16:19-40). Subsequently, in parapsychology it has been assumed that the elements of psychokinesis way or another could be present in the methods of imposition of curses, casting of magic spells and predicting the weather. In the same category a include the evil eye.

Attempts to study the phenomenon

In the thirties of the study of psychokinesis has become the fastest growing area of parapsychology. The first consistent study of psychokinesis began in 1934, Joseph B. Ryan of Duke University in North Carolina. First, in the observation got a player who claimed that able you to stack the dice so that they were given the right amount and combination.

Before 1940, the phenomenon of psychokinesis, mainly "observed" in séances in darkened rooms, where it was almost impossible to provide strict scientific control. After Rayna experiments moved into the lab. The studied phenomena are divided into two categories: macropsoides and microbicides (weak, do not register to the naked eye, the effects that require statistical processing), and the second of them turned out to be the center of attention.

After experimenting rein for half a century he has published more than 150 reports of the independent studies of the phenomenon. The vast majority of cases, the authors argued that did observe an effect that could be interpreted as psychokinesis, but quantitatively deviations from the norm seemed very small.

In 1989 psychologists Diane Ferrari and Dean Radin of Princeton University developed a technique of applying meta-analysis in relation to the obtained results of the experiments to eliminate the element of chance and to reveal the General for all cases trend.

Approval Radin and Ferrari results in the total processing of data obtained after 2.5 million throw of the dice (with participation of 2,5 thousand people) indicated a slight (less than 1% ), but statistically confirmed the variation in the impact of the object thought. This result, according to the researchers, pointed to the reality of the phenomenon of psychokinesis.

We see that in the majority laboratory experiments have yielded conflicting results and the reality of the existence of this phenomenon is still not proven.


The majority of the term "materialization" can be found at the mention of mediums in séances, but sometimes it is used in other cases.

According to "the Encyclopedia of parapsychology and the occult", the term "materialization" was first used in 1873 in the United States; that in relation to the phenomenon uses the expression "spiritual forms".

Considered to be the earliest mention of the phenomenon in the book "Recherches psychologique ou correspondence sur le magnetisme vital entre un Solitaire et M. Deleuze," where Dr. John. P. Bello described the incident that occurred on March 5, 1819, when in the presence of the "three sleepwalkers and one blind woman" in a locked room came an envelope with "messages from the saints", allegedly brought by a white dove.

Attempts to study the phenomenon

The first famous representative of the science, taking up the study of the phenomenon of materialization, became at the beginning of 1880-x years sir William Crookes. Being a witness of unusual phenomena occurring in the sessions, Florence cook, he offered her to stay in the London house on Mornington road and began to hold regular sessions here (at first in the dim twilight, and then in natural light), inviting their friends from the academic world and regularly publishing reports on their observations in the "Quarterly scientific journal".

In 1874, a scientist published a report about working with cook (and also with two other famous mediums Kate Fox, and D. D. Hume), in which he stated that he witnessed a genuine materialization phenomenon in its different manifestations. The publication caused a scandal in the scientific world. Crooks almost lost the title of honorary member of the Royal society, but did not renounce their claims, remaining faithful to them until the end of his life.

It was believed that to materialize, you can not only small inanimate objects, but also plants, animals and even humans.

On the nature of apporte (and indirectly the phenomena of materialization), it was proposed two main theories:

  • "the fourth dimension" (it was first advanced by the German Professor Zollner in an attempt to explain the phenomenon of the "interpenetration of matter", which, it was argued, was observed at the sessions of the medium Henry Slade);
  • "the disintegration of matter" (rend Sudre suggested that the brain of the medium has the ability at the molecular level to dematerializing physical objects and then produce "reverse Assembly").

In 1920-years in parapsychology there was a third theory, designed to explain the phenomenon of physical mediumship and relevant to the concept of "thought forms" (borrowed from the occult). According to this hypothesis, physical mediumship a certain predefined process, enabling the medium to objectify (taking in space) thoughts and images — both own and borrowed from others. One of the first this explanation was suggested by sir William Barrett.

Representatives of science in the vast majority deny reality and the very possibility of the phenomenon of materialization and believe that the only explanation for this phenomenon could serve as a good level of proficiency in the subjects the technique of illusionism.

There are relatively well-studied developing skills of influencing people, involving verbal or non-verbal interaction:

  • Suggestion (lat. suggestio - suggestion) — psychological impact on human consciousness, in which there is an uncritical perception of beliefs and attitudes. Is a specially formed verbal (and sometimes emotional) design. Often confused with telepathy when the human influence is not apparent.
  • Hypnosis (al-Greek. ὕπνος sleep) – an altered state of consciousness, simultaneously combining signs of waking, sleeping and dreaming. Hypnosis allows you to simultaneously exist in mutually exclusive States of consciousness. In the state of hypnosis the subject can hear addressed to his words without criticism, i.e., it increases suggestibility. Here he is listed as a method of influence on the individual.
  • Illusionism is an art form, which is characterized by the use of sleight of hand, gimmicks or special equipment to create the illusion of breaking the normal physical properties of the well-known items. The name comes from the French word "Illusionner" — "to mislead".

These abilities are quite common, but in the perfection of their own units, and masterly they can be mistaken for super powers. Causes, methods and results of such influences are known and relatively well documented.

Siguapa anthropomorphic creature hurting people sexual relations with the victim the manipulation of the thoughts of the victim turns into a human


A mythological creature from Dominican folklore. This is a woman with brown or dark blue skin, legs twisted back and long, smooth hair that covers her naked body.

They say that these creatures live in the mountains of the Dominican Republic.

Ciguapa is nocturnal. Due to the fact that her legs are twisted backwards, it is never possible to determine exactly where Siguapa was moving, if we consider her tracks.

Some people believe that Siguapa brings death, and that one should not look into her piercing hypnotic eyes. Otherwise, the person who dares to look them in the eye will be immediately bewitched. She paralyzes her victim and attacks.

They say that she can drag her victim into the forest or into a cave and eat there. The sounds produced by Ciguapa resemble whining or chirping. They move through the forest at night, and their hair glistens under the light of the moon, making a completely creepy impression.

They are considered magical creatures that can appear in front of some people in a beautiful way, and seem completely ugly to others. But all sources agree that these are evil creatures. They are very cunning and are always ready to lure a traveler who has lost his vigilance into their nets. They say that they can take on such a beautiful image that it will not be difficult for them to lure a man into the forest. But after getting sex from him, they immediately kill him and hide. This legend is so popular that there are still people who claim to have seen Ciguapa.

It is believed that the only way to catch a Ciguapa is to hunt it down on a full moon with the help of a black and white dog with polydactyly (which is called the "cinqueno dog").

Although many believe that the myth of the Ciguape originates from the Taino (an indigenous people of the Caribbean Sea), it has been suggested that this is probably a later invention, since the myth of the Ciguape has many similarities with ancient European mermaids. None of the known artifacts or legends of Taino mentions any creature even remotely similar to him. In addition, the legend may have originated from other myths as far away as guarani kurupi or the Hindu churel, which were described by Rudyard Kipling. The hypothesis of Hinduism may be far-fetched, since it is impossible to establish how this story got to the Dominican Republic in the nineteenth century, when there was no cultural exchange between these peoples.

Slendermen anthropomorphic creature excessive thinness high being long limbs stretches limbs superpowered creature


Slender man (Slenderman, Slender, Skinny (Tall) person), or in English The Slender Man, Slenderman, Slender is a mythical character that appeared in mass culture less than a decade ago. He is notable because of its artificial origin is precisely known, in contrast to other phenomena (such as Chupacabra and UFOs) that originated the least 60-70 years ago. However, this did not prevent a thin man firmly take root in popular culture and even to confirm its existence in the witnesses. To understand how is it possible last, you need to refer to the history of the character.

Modern Slenderman was created by a member of the Internet forum Something Awful under the alias Victor Surge (Victor Surge) in 2009, in imitation of the characters of urban legends. Victor handled in a graphical editor, two black-and-white picture with the children and given the photos a new character in the form of a tall faceless man. Since the image of this "creature" is virtually unchanged: a sharp black suit, a head without a face (sometimes only the mouth), long arms and legs, very high growth, and the ability to stretch the already long limbs to almost any size and even turn them into tentacles.

Victor Surge and emphasized that the image of a Thin person is completely fictional, and noted that used for photo montages image of the Tall man from "Phantasm" (1979), as well as the pictures of men in stern suits. Now, however, in some articles, and encyclopedias already stated that Slender man is a generalized character of German, Japanese, Russian, and Romanian folklore, and is just a "restart" of the legend.

Indeed, in these mythologies, you can find a number of similar characters. For example, fat bastard is a character of Slavic mythology, evil spirits, very long and a bad spirit roaming in the streets at night, peering into the window, warming his hands in the pipe, and intimidating people. Noperapon (English pronunciation of Noppara of be) - this is a character of Japanese mythology, is a humanoid creature without a face. On the forums, imageboard and other Internet sites remember also the Romanian tale about Stella and Sorin - two girls, one who has seen many-armed man dressed in all black, the limbs of which were long and boneless, izvivatsya like snakes (at the same time to find itself a story or a mention of it apart from the legend of Slenderman has failed). There is also a reference to the German myth of Der Großmann ("the Tall man") on tall thin creature with the face of two white spheres for eyes. In different sources it is mentioned that he is depicted on the engraving of the 16th century ("Depicted here is “Der Ritter” (The Knight) fighting to the left of “Der Grossman” (The Tall Man))". The source of this myth also has been found. It is believed that it was invented to reinforce the legend of the Slenderman.

In order for the legend is alive again, was invented not only Der Grossman and Romanian tale. It is believed that Surge, and other friends continued to surround his hero with legends, to fabricate several police reports and children's drawings with images of slender man. So Slender man quickly left the confines of the forum Something Awful.

After that the character became not only to meet creepypasta, but gained the Central role in movies, games and songs of varying degrees of popularity. It seems that the Slender man has gained his life and fifty years is likely to be perceived to be a real creature (along with Bigfoot and Chupacabra), dwelling not only on the screen and in nightmares.

Spontaneous human combustion fire with no apparent source spontaneous combustion thermal effects on the body

Spontaneous human combustion

To the fire phenomena can be attributed to three main types:

In this article we will describe the phenomenon of spontaneous combustion of the man.

Spontaneous human combustion is a phenomenon in which people allegedly can ignite with no apparent external source of ignition.

The legend of spontaneous human combustion came to us from antiquity, but only since the early eighteenth century, when such cases began to be recorded in the official documents, including police records, they were considered quite reliable.

For example, it is believed that the first mention of the phenomenon of spontaneous human combustion was in the Bible: "the People began to murmur aloud to the Lord; and the Lord heard and His anger was kindled, and kindled them a fire of the Lord, and started to destroy the edge of the camp. (Num.11:1)"

In the old days, the cases of spontaneous combustion were told that the man burned the "devil's fire" incinerated Satan. People believed that the victim was sold to the Prince of darkness his soul, but then violated their secret agreement, for her and caught up with wages.

Later, in the XVII century, there was a more rational explanation: that the victims of spontaneous combustion become chronic alcoholics, whose bodies soaked with alcohol and therefore flare up from a spark, especially if the deceased was a smoker.

Medieval literature also records cases of human spontaneous combustion: for example, during the reign of Queen Bona Sforza (between 1515 and 1557) in Milan in front of their parents, and sons killed knight Polonia Worthy: after two buckets of drinking wine, he suddenly began to spew flames from his mouth and burned.

More detailed evidence about human spontaneous combustion appear since the eighteenth century.

The first documentedstory of spontaneous human combustion is the case, remaining in the records of the Danish anatomist Thomas Bartolina. In 1663 he investigated and described the case as a woman in Paris "turned into ashes and smoke" while she was sleeping, but a straw mattress on which she lay, remained unharmed.

In 1731 under mysterious circumstances in the Italian city of Cesena died, the Countess Cornelia di Bandi: in the bedroom, found her legs, clad in stockings, and part of the skull.

In April 1744 in Ipswich (England) daughter of 60-year-old alcoholic Griess Pet found his father dead on the floor of the house: in her words, "it burned without fire, like a bundle of firewood". Clothing on the man was almost not damaged as was made out of asbestos.

The first reliable evidence about the case of human combustion refers to 1763 when Frenchman John DuPont has published a book with a collection of cases of human spontaneous combustion under the name "De Incendiis Corporis Humani Spontaneis". In it, among other things, he mentions the case of Nicolas millet, who was acquitted from charges of murdering his wife, when the court is satisfied that she died as a result of spontaneous combustion. The wife of Millais, heavy drinkers Parisian, was discovered at home, when she was just a pile of ashes, a skull and finger bones. A straw mattress on which she was found, was only slightly damaged, as was impregnated with a non-flammable composition (obviously, this description of the case, considered the first. see above).

About 1853 in Columbus (Ohio) caught fire and was devoured by flames guts a liquor store owner, a German by nationality. This case was invented by Charles Dickens in the Preface to the second edition of his novel "bleak house", which described a fictional case of human spontaneous combustion.

In 1861, literary critic and philosopher George Henry Lewes published his correspondence with Dickens, in which he accused the writer in the spread of fables:

"In these notes, usually written, that the human body is oily soot, Yes, some remains of bones. We all know that this can not be".

In 1870, the Professor of forensic medicine of the University of Aberdeen has published an article On "spontaneous Combustion". In it he wrote that he had found 54 contemporary scientists who have ever written about human spontaneous combustion, 35 of them clearly expressed their opinions about this phenomenon.

Five (including the Justus Liebig) argued that spontaneous combustion is impossible, and that all documented cases are a hoax.
Three (including Guillaume Dupuytren) believed that cases of spontaneous combustion were real, however, have a different nature, namely: there was some external source of fire.
Twenty-seven researchers (Including Patient and Orfila) insisted that spontaneous combustion of the human body is possible.

In the twentieth century recorded 19 phenomena of spontaneous combustion of person.

Known to the coroner of London, doctor of medicine Kevin Thurston, in 1961, published in "Health law journal" article that "there are a number of completely reliable evidence of the combustion of a human without the participation of any combustible materials. However, as a rule, there is no damage to nearby flammable materials."

For all time of existence of the phenomenon was proposed many hypotheses explaining this phenomenon.

  • On the human body, one way or another, affected by various entities not of our world.
  • Alcohol body of an alcoholic can be ignited by careless Smoking.
  • Spontaneous combustion is a well-disguised murder.
  • Household accident. When clothes accidentally caught and combustibles to ignite the slightest spark or a gas leak. For example, we can distinguish the hypothesis of Alan Baird and Dougal of Drysdale: suppose a person works in a garage and usually cleans your clothes from detritus with a compressed air jet, but this time cleared jumpsuit with a stream of pure oxygen for a while, but very significantly increased the Flammability of clothing. Enough a lit cigarette to the man was enveloped in flames. Or the story is originally from New Zealand, where in the 30 years of the twentieth century the explosive spontaneous combustion killed or wounded farmers. Presumably, the reason was sodium chlorate (used as a herbicide against the harmful weed ambrosia), which was snowshovels of the friction; the blows he was especially sensitive.
  • The effect of the human candle. The Human candle effect is the phenomenon when the victim's clothing is soaked with melted human fat and begins to act as wick candles. Such a phenomenon can indeed occur under certain conditions. Theory suggests an external source of ignition: after he runs out, combustion will continue because of the decay of fat. In judicial practice there are several cases that demonstrate this effect.
  • The hypothesis of ignition from static electricity, based on the fact that under certain conditions the human body can accumulate an electrostatic charge such that when the discharge can ignite clothing.
  • In 1996, John Heimer, after analyzing a number of cases of spontaneous combustion, suggested that a psychosomatic disorder in people suffering from depression, can lead to release of hydrogen and oxygen from the human body and the beginning of a chain reaction of implosions mitochondrions.
  • Russian researcher, doctor of physical and mathematical Sciences Gennady Shipov agrees with his British counterpart in the fact that pyrokinesis is a particular manifestation of poltergeist, when you are in an altered state of consciousness the human brain is the physical referent spontaneous fluctuations of the quantum vacuum.
  • Larry Arnold (chair of the organization of ParaScience International) in his book "Ablaze!" (1995) suggested that the cause of spontaneous combustion may be as yet unknown subatomic particle called dirotonom emitted by cosmic rays. Typically, the particle freely passes through the human body without causing harm (like neutrinos), but sometimes it can hurt the cell nucleus and cause a chain reaction that can completely destroy a human body. This hypothesis was not supported. In the magazine Fortean Times Ian Simmons reacted on this hypothesis: "evidence of the existence of such a particle is not, and to invent her only in order to explain human spontaneous combustion is a stupid idea".
  • Cases of human spontaneous combustion caused by the discharge of the ball lightning.
  • The age hypothesis proposes that in old age the body start to occur unknown to science processes, which can lead to spontaneous combustion.
  • Some scientists suggest that the unknown metabolism in the stomach and intestine can lead to the creation of flammable biological compounds.
  • The Japanese Haruki ito has put forward a rather original version: the cause of spontaneous combustion of the human in changing the flow of time, when owing to any circumstances within the body is slowing sharply physical processes (including the movement of atoms), and on the skin's surface, their velocity remains constant. In this case, the heat generated is not enough to transmitted in space and incinerates the man.
  • English chemist John Ronald from Boston University announced that the culprit can be a special bacteria that eat the sugars in the human body, and produces volatile combustibles. Calms only that this bacterium has not been discovered, it exists only in the form of a computer model.
  • Today among researchers of the phenomenon of pyrokinesis is gaining popularity very new, original hypothesis. According to her, in addition to the well-known types of fields, perople with the ability to heat the protein matter.
  • Candidate of technical Sciences Anatoly Stekhin, senior researcher, research Institute of human ecology and environmental health Russian Academy of medical Sciences believes that the cause of spontaneous human combustion can be considered cold-plasma burning. "Man on three quarters consists of liquid formations, the scholar maintains. - Roughly speaking, from the water. Free radicals in its molecules are able to "pick up" energy. This can be either solar energy, or biological. In exceptional cases, it is the flow of photons breaks out. This is the cold-plasma burning. When it is external body temperature does not exceed 36 degrees, and the inner reaches 2000 degrees. Almost twice higher than in furnaces of the crematorium!"
  • Swiss scientist Ludwig Schumacher came to the conclusion that supposedly exist in nature, but unknown to the science of radiation and "energy beams", interacting with the human biofield, able to spontaneously call heavy duty flash, which leads to spontaneous combustion. {"AustrealAsia" 2001, N 14, p.108-109}[9]
  • The fire comes from "short circuit" of energy Qi in the man.
  • Cause of spontaneous combustion is self-hypnosis. The principle is the same as stigmatic.

The features of the phenomenon, making it unexplained:

  1. Human combustion is happening inside. Internal organs more damaged than the outside.
  2. Ignition occurs without apparent source.
  3. Surrounding objects slightly damaged, even if they are highly flammable.
  4. The human body is when spontaneous combustion burns much more thoroughly than with conventional ignition. Damage, however, distributed unevenly throughout the body: sometimes there is a skull, and, less frequently, limbs (sometimes partly ash and partly intact parts of the body). In order for the human bones turned to ash, the necessary temperature above 1700 °C, while in crematoriums use temperatures of about 1100 °C, and for complete combustion of the corpse is required to split the bone.

Star jelly an unknown substance white gelatinous mass

Star jelly

We already have a description of the phenomenon of "angel Hair". The so-called spider mass, which sometimes fall to the ground, and a few hours later evaporates. In the hands of such "hair" melt or turn into stinking lumps. A subspecies of this phenomenon believe (and sometimes they did not share) "Star jelly", a drop-down on the ground (branches, grass, etc.), but having a form not web, down or wool and jelly or slime. According to folklore, this substance has been accumulated on the earth during meteor showers, and the combination of legends about the origin of the appearance gave it the name.

The Oxford English dictionary lists several names for this phenomenon: star-fallen, star-falling, star-jelly, star-shot, star-slime, star-slough, star-slubber, and star-slutch. In the Russian language can also be found the names of "astral jelly", "space slime", "space jelly", "space snot", etc.

"Star jelly" is described as a translucent or grayish-white gelatinous mass, which may evaporate soon after "loss".

About gelatinous precipitation was mentioned by Charles Fort in his book "The Book of the Damned" in 1919. Description "a certain mucilaginous substance lying on the ground", can be found in the medical writings of the famous English physician of the fourteenth century John Gaddesden.

Currently, the best known are Oakville clots (Oakville Blobs)supposedly fell from the sky during the rain in the us city of Oakville, Washington, 7 August 1994.

It is interesting that, in contrast to the "angel hair", "star jelly" is almost never observed in the process of hair loss.


Hypotheses of the origin of these lumps of mucus can be divided into natural, artificial, and "conditionally supernatural."

Artificial origin:

  • human waste discharged from toilets of the aircraft; however, such discharges are specifically not made as a result of the accidental release of liquid has a different color (blue), and consistency;
  • polluting emissions of factories, laboratories and stations, unfortunately, did not specify what substances give such effect;
  • deliberate dumping of substances into the atmosphere; this hypothesis is upheld by followers of the conspiracy theory of dimitrescu.

Natural origin:

  • mushrooms (for example, Tubifera rusty or Drozhali focusevent);
  • microorganisms (colony Cyanobacteria);
  • mold (for example, Enteridium lycoperdon or Epyndrum Lycogala);
  • the eggs of frogs or toads, not delayed by natural means, and removed from the body in the attack of a predator; such eggs do not have protective film, rapidly absorb moisture from the environment and turn into a homogeneous gelatinous mass.

"Conditionally surjection" the origin:

  • condensed exhaust UFO;
  • eggs, slime and other fragments of aliens;
  • sign the witch's curse;
  • place the appearance of a Ghost;
  • etc.

Starsense monster animal body parts scales water creature

Starsense monster

Starsense monster (the Swede. Storsjöodjuret) — lake monster, supposedly living in the Swedish lake Storsjön, in the province of Jämtland.

Starsense monster described as a serpent or marine reptile with fins on the back and a dog's head. At length the monster of about six meters, and some sources say that it has multiple humps.

Legends about him is known since 1635.

The first time the beast is mentioned in the tale, written by the local priest Morgenson Pedersen in 1635.

It says that once two trolls gathered to boil water on the lake. They lit a fire and hung over it the kettle. Although the water has long been boiled, they remove the kettle and decimetre water from the kettle jumped a hideous creature with a cat's head and a snake body. It quickly looked around and ran into the lake. Like the monster in the lake, and it remained to live there, and eventually reached an enormous size.

"Ketil Runske bound the mighty monster with a strong spell, carved in stone and raised on the island of Prison. The serpent was depicted on the stone. Thus, the spell should be bound to the day when someone will come who can read and understand the inscription on the stone."

Another legend was recorded by the Prosecutor by Andreas Platinum in 1685.

"They say that [rune] stone lies a dreadfully large serpent's head, and that the body extends above Sturtianum to Knitty and hill Sand, where the buried tail.

Due to the fact that nobody could peacefully cross [Storsjön], the ferryman and his wife declare, along with many others, in recent turbulent times, this stone was destroyed and broken in two. While the stone was lying on the ground, many strange things happened in the water until the stone was raised and assembled again."

* Runic stone, which is referred to both texts is the rune stone Freso, the world's northernmost rune stone.

However, despite the fact that the stone really shows the great serpent, there is not a single mention of it. Instead, there is information about Austere, the baptism of the son Goodpaster in Jämtland. Although he was really broken into two parts.

In the 1890-ies of the monster for the first time aroused General interest. People tried to catch a monster, they helped even the king of Sweden Oscar II. In the end no one found any signs of the monster's existence, but believes in the monster haven't lost your interest in him and hope in his existence.

In August 2008, the crew filmed at the lake, a documentary film about a monster who reported that their infrared cameras picked up the presence of some endothermic mass.

Succubus choking victim it feeds on life energy sexual relations with the victim


In medieval European tradition, a female demon who enters into intimate relationships with people. Succubus, from Latin succubare — "to lie under".

For early demonologists, succubi were a kind of dream demons, real beings of the non-human world. In the middle Ages, their reality was not questioned, only the interpretation changed. Now they were either messengers of the devil, or he himself in female form. Later, when it will be noticed that the phenomenon of such mysterious lovers often occurs in a special "borderline" state of consciousness-between sleep and wakefulness.

The idea of the Strangler demon goes back to the image of a nocturnal creature present in the mythology of many peoples, sitting on the chest and causing suffocation and immobilization.

Often outwardly, the succubus is drawn as an ugly witch or demoness, slowly drinking the life forces of her lovers-victims, which is why they are sometimes inaccurately identified with vampires. Or Vice versa: a young attractive woman, however, with clawed feet and, sometimes, webbed wings.

Interestingly, in early reports, the succubus appears to be a desirable creature, not a terrible one. The most interesting of these stories is the legend told by Walter Mapes in De Nugis Curialium (circa 1185) about Pope Sylvester II (C. 950-may 12, 1003). According to this legend, the future Pope once met a girl of amazing beauty named Meridiana, who promised the young man wealth and help if he agreed to be with her. The young man agreed. Every night he spent with a mysterious mistress, while his career took off: the young man became Archbishop of Reims, cardinal, Archbishop Ravenna and finally the Pope.

Telekinesis the manipulation of objects at a distance


A term used in parapsychology to denote the ability of a person with one only the effort of thought to influence physical objects.

The term "telekinesis" was first used in the 1890 Russian paranormal investigator Alexander N. Aksakov. The author of the term "psychokinesis" is an American author and publisher, Henry Holt (Henry Holt. On the Cosmic Relations. — 1914); popularized by American parapsychologist J. Ryan (J. B. Rhine) in 1934.

Both concepts are at various times described in different terms: "remote influence" (eng. distant influencing), "the influence of thought at a distance" (eng. remote mental influence), "direct conscious intent" (eng. direct conscious intention), "thought to control matter" (eng. mind over matter), and others.

Originally, the term tele - and psychokinesis were considered synonymous, but gradually, as there is evidence that the impact of human consciousness on material objects may not be limited to the kinetic component, there was a division.

Psychokinesis — a more General term combining any (macro and micro) phenomena connected with the impact of thought on matter, including: telekinesis, pyro - and creatines, Aero - and gerakines, biochemicals, teleportation, "milligray" (thoughtography), levitation, etc.

In its report on the study of the phenomenon of teleportation (Teleportation Physics Study, 2004), commissioned by the command of the U.S. air force (and Air Force conducted in the laboratory on the basis of the Edwards US air force), physicist Eric Davis describes the psychic as "a special case of psychokinesis". In popular culture, on the contrary, the term telekinesis is most prevalent.

Telepathy the manipulation of the actions of the victim the manipulation of the thoughts of the victim


The term is derived from ancient Greek. τῆλε — "far away" and πάθος "feeling". This hypothetical ability of the brain to transmit thoughts, images, feelings and the unconscious state of another brain or body at a distance, or take them from him without the use of any known means of communication or manipulation.

The term "telepathy" was first coined in 1882 by Frederick W. H. Myers, one of the founders of the British Society for psychical research, after experiments trying to transmit thoughts at a distance, which he conducted together with three other researchers — GURNEE, Seguiram and Barrett.

Experiments associated with trying to prove the existence of telepathy, was conducted in Europe, the USA and the Soviet Union, but, despite reports of a number of preliminary positive results, attempts to reproduce them in a more rigorous experimental conditions lead to negative results, making the reality of the phenomenon remains unproven.

Given the lack of biological preconditions for telepathy, most scientists believe it is impossible in principle, and psychic study relate to the pseudo-scientific activities.

Telepathic abilities are described in Homer's "Odyssey" — the story of the Phaeacians, the people of Sherii that to "deliver on the seas accidentally placed on Scheria travellers", used by ships without a rudder and helmsman: each ship knew the thoughts of sailors.

Teleportation sounds without visible sources the transition to another world


Teleportation (al-Greek. τῆλε "far" + Latin. portare "to carry") is a hypothetical change of the object's coordinates (moving), in which the trajectory of the object can be described mathematically as a continuous function of time.

A term introduced in 1931 by American writer Charles Fort to describe the strange "disappearance" and "appearances" — paranormal phenomena, which, in his opinion, had something in common.

The Alien anthropomorphic creature disproportionate body high being induces pregnancy out of the landed object pass the device or knowledge the distortion of time the little creature the surgical precision of the wound the transition to another world the unusual shape of the eyes

The Alien

The alien is a hypothetical representative of an intelligent extraterrestrial civilization. It is considered a passenger of the "flying saucer", so it is closely associated with the UFO phenomenon, although it appeared in the mass consciousness much earlier.

As with the origin of the unidentified objects, the true origin of the aliens is unknown. According to various versions, they can be aliens from other planets (aliens), and from other worlds ("parallel Earth"), and even representatives of the future population of the Earth.

This category can include any "hidden people" from folklore, because there are common features:

  • they come from another world (sometimes kidnapping a person and taking them to it)
  • they differ in the level of development from a person
  • share knowledge or devices
  • time in their world lasts differently from that on earth
  • they look very similar to people, but with some obvious differences (strange facial features, unusual clothing, etc.).)
  • at the place of appearance, traces of crushed or burnt grass can be left
  • they may have sexual relations with the abducted person
  • their appearance is often accompanied by blinding light

Now all such meetings are associated with extraterrestrials.

According to the versions of the explanations, the aliens look like ghosts. Usually, it is customary to refer to the aliens as anthropomorphic entities, but there are exceptions. Until recently, they were also related to the ghosts by the circumstances of the meetings, after which there were no obvious traces left. However, in the last few decades, the usual observations and contacts have been supplemented by evidence of implants left by aliens in the human body, as well as reports of the discovery of the corpses of unknown creatures similar in description to the aliens.

It is believed that the aliens are not only intelligent, but also far ahead of earthlings in technological and cultural development.

The aliens represent something unknown, bringing with them new experiences, new opportunities and, at the same time, potential danger. The image of an alien, most often a humanoid alien, is actively exploited by modern mass culture.

It even has five "classic" images.:

  • Humanoid. These are aliens who look exactly like humans. Their height varies from small (gnome-like), to tall (see Nords). They differ in gender, age, and appearance. The clothes of W on a human, but more reminiscent of the suits or diving suits.
  • Greys, or "greys". They look like short humanoid creatures with gray or light green skin, without hair. The descriptions also usually feature a disproportionately large head with huge slanted black eyes.
  • The Nords. Outwardly, they look like people of high stature with geometrically perfect facial features and physique.
  • Reptilians. They are usually described as giant humanoid lizards.
  • Insectoids. In the descriptions of eyewitnesses, they are distinguished by an obvious comparison with terrestrial insects.

As you can see, these descriptions also fit many representatives of the "hidden people".

The circles and other formations burn marks flattened plants geometrically regular or complex patterns

The circles and other formations

Crop circles — a term denoting the drawings in the form of rings, circles and other geometric shapes formed on the margins of flattened plants. These drawings can be small or to have so big size that they can be seen entirely only from the plane.

In addition to the classic flattened ears on the field to this phenomenon include burned grass, geometric traces on the ground, snow, and other surfaces, including on the water.

This phenomenon relates to the fact if the scene were found traces of the above regardless of the existence of other phenomena (the place of landing of UFOs, observation, fairies, etc.).

The first known mention of circles in England refers specifically to 1618 (in Chronicles referred to the miracle of the appearing circles in the grain fields) in the Netherlands – for to 1503. The earliest documentary pominaniem considered English brochure 1678 called the "Mowing-Devil" (devil-mower).

References to sections of flattened wheat are found in the legends of different peoples, for example, in Russian folk tales, Mongolian folk tales, and many others with very similar storylines. Individual episodes of these stories Ershov merged a rich adventure story "the little humpbacked Horse", written in 1834. Although in all these works no mention of clear geometric shapes and speaks only of flattened crops, often lead to the confirmation of the antiquity of this phenomenon.

The first scientific study was published in the 22nd issue of the journal Nature, July 29, 1880.

However, the phenomenon was marginal until the end of the twentieth century, and has dramatically gained popularity in the early 90-ies. Only in 1990 was found about 500 pieces, and in subsequent years their number exceeded a few thousand. Being first just with circles, the figures are all complicated with time.

Modern "circles" are often very complicated structures, for example, discovered August 14, 2001 in Wiltshire figure has a diameter of about 450 meters and consists of 409 circles. Today, recorded a few pieces a week, sometimes several a day.

To date registered more than 5000 pieces in 40 countries. However, most of them recorded in the vicinity of Avebury, UK.

The phenomenon is found in almost all countries. The most frequent references are found in England, but they can be found in Japan, Australia, America, South Africa, Spain, Germany, France, Bulgaria, Russia. In other countries somewhat less.

The classic manifestation of the phenomenon are considered the figures on cereals – rye, wheat, etc. Many researchers are of the opinion that the appearance of the figures on other underlying surfaces is impossible, however, it is possible to result following examples:

  • Italy, Brazil, Australia and other parts of the world: icons appear among the bushes;
  • Afghanistan: a group of geologists in the mountains found more than 30 circles-pictograms in deep snow;
  • Egypt, Red sea: Charlotte Wusthoff aboard passenger aircraft found clear pictograms on the sand in a desert area of Egypt;
  • Kharkov: in the ice of a frozen river MZA discovered the imprint of a ring with a diameter of 20.7 meters;
  • Samara: two circles with a diameter of about 20 meters discovered in a snowy field near the airport Kurumoch. The observation that was made on Board of an airplane taking off at low altitude. No trace of a person or equipment on a nearby snow-covered space was not, and it completely eliminates the artificial nature of origin of the detected circles.

As signs of authenticity applies only to formations on the cereal box, and for other cases such signs have not yet been developed, this article will address the phenomenon of "crop circles" in its classical manifestation, that is, on the cereal box, as the underlying surface.

Until 1990 he met, as a rule, only very simple, mostly circular form. Since 1990, there was an increase in the complexity of the circles - there were huge complexes of circles with various branches. They have been given the name "icon". Since then, pictograms have become more and more complex, more and more away from simple geometric shapes.

There are many hypotheses of the origin of the circles. Details are described in the article by Richard Taylor, devoted for the most part the history of the study circles, and considering many theories from the 19th century to the present day. All these hypotheses can be divided into several categories.


  • In September 1991, the population of great Britain David Carley and Douglas bower confessed to creating the circles. According to them, the first pattern they did in 1978, inspired by photographs of the tracks left in the grain fields of agricultural machinery.
  • A group of creators of crop circles, founded by John Landberg demonstrated that it is possible to manufacture almost all circles, including those analogs which are recognized by cereology authentic.
  • Joe Nickel, senior research fellow of the Committee for the scientific study of allegedly paranormal phenomena, argues that the circles are all signs of counterfeits: They are concentrated in the South of the UK, they are becoming more complex with time (the skill of the creators is growing), the creators of hide and remain anonymous. Objections to this hypothesis are constructed in particular on the fact that a careful study of the figures shows complex changes in the structure of plants that cannot be reproduced in the field. It also points to the complexity and large portion sizes of formations that does not fit well with the short time interval (one night) required to create them.
  • Lights selhoznauk assure that if you fall on the field of winter crops, within a circle, to make a “loading dose” of ammonium nitrate, it is perekopki nitrogen plants within the circle will grow faster and achieve such growth, thin stems die from the slightest breeze. You can stack them with a rope in a spiral (this picture is observed in “crop circles”). That was demonstrated by the journalists of “Komsomolskaya Pravda” in one of the private farms in the Moscow region in 2001 year. However, it is not clear how with this method it is possible to create shapes with clear boundaries and a few mixed layers of the substrate.
  • Richard Taylor believes that manufacturers of field ornaments are cutting the grass using microwave radiation. The basic tools of "artists", apparently, are torn from microwave ovens magnetrons are powered from a powerful portable battery. And reconcile steps helps GPS navigation. However, if you find the original article by Richard Taylor referenced, ndwiga this theory, it turns out that she is more dedicated to the history of study circles than to study. At the end is a link to research group BLT Research Team, whose members allegedly were able to reproduce changes in the structure of plants by microwave radiation of the magnetron from a conventional microwave. And scientists Haselhoff and Levengood even built a model that describes these processes. However, all this remains a theory, to repeat the reality on the field is not yet possible. In addition, the use of radiation gives a clear edges of the formation, and this is one of the signs of the truth. The author of the article did not even insist on such origin of the circles, the article is just a review, just mention the possibility of using the modern equipment (microwaves and GPS) scams when creating circles.

Natural causes

  • One theory suggests that the circles are created by small vortexes that send to the ground a strong flow of air, primina plants. Such vortices are often found in the hilly regions of the UK.
  • Dr. Terrence copper from the organization for the study of tornadoes and storms (TORRO, Wiltshire) believes that such vortices are the energy charge (the theory of plasma turbulence). Dust particles caught in the spinning charged air, can emit light, which explains the glowing lights reported by eyewitnesses. But still the question remains — how air vortices can produce such a complex icon?
  • As reported by the Washington post, recently a California researcher don Scott observed the appearance of a mysterious circles on the fields of rye in southern England. Among his equipment was a radiation detector, the infrared vision devices, cameras and movie cameras. Don Scott came from a well-known fact that lying on the grass circles indicate the presence of radioactive isotopes. Therefore, before to install monitoring equipment, he determined with the help of a radiation detector areas of a rye field exceeding the normal radiation level. After two weeks of searching, he found such an anomaly, and the waiting began. A few days later in 1 hour 57 minutes in the morning included automatic infrared camera. The night-vision goggles, Scott watched as the ears of rye begin to bend, forming a circle. Increasing the image, the researcher saw little creatures scurrying between the ears. It was not aliens from outer space, not mystical creatures of ancient Celtic legends. The builders of the circles were ants, one of the insect species possessing primitive social organization. What makes ants walk in a circle? By assumption, Scott, the direction of movement of ants determines the magnetic field of the Earth. This theory does not fit with the history of the development of the phenomenon and doesn't explain centers of the circles, though it is considered the most plausible, "because the ants are everywhere". We also failed to find the source of where describes in detail this theory and its research.
  • One of the latest theories explaining rectangular, square and other simple formations is uneven evaporation of the moisture in the ground ancient buildings. A study conducted aerial archaeologists from the Royal Commission dealing with issues related to ancient and historical monuments of Wales:

    The figures, discovered in the fields, they argue, testify to the diverse human activities in the region. Rather, this study has also helped hot weather. Grass for her faded, and the landscape began to emerge figures that can be seen only from the air. In other cases, drought would play a different role.

    The fact is that moisture in a large quantity has accumulated in underground trenches created in ancient times artificially. Over them the grass grows better and around the burn. This was the cause of manifestation of signs. Resemble the figures of the mysterious crop circles. However, scientists also taped square and rectangular structures.

    In their opinion, the marks are the remains of fortresses and castles, prehistoric farms and houses.

    Because of the heat, the plants wither completely if they have grown right over the ancient Foundation — it prevents to accumulate moisture in the soil. Or water, in contrast, accumulates in the artificial ditches — in this case, the grass grows longer and thicker. Anyway, notice the difference only during long periods of drought.


  • One of the assumptions is that the crop circle is the trace of a different mind. For example, traces of landing UFOs. Or on the contrary — specifically sent to the earthlings messages to other planets. However, this theory lies in the same plane as the question of the existence of UFOs and other anomalous phenomena — scientific evidence of the existence of alien intelligence is still not received, despite the fact that from a scientific point of view, its existence is highly likely. Perhaps the reason for this is that the scientific works on search of extraterrestrial civilizations at the moment concentrated only on the narrow area of the search signal of a certain frequency, similar to artificial.

The devil anthropomorphic creature changes form hairy creature helps you find your way high being hurting people makes you wander predicts the future sounds without visible sources superpowered creature the distortion of time the manipulation of the actions of the victim

The devil

The devil – spirit master of the forest in the mythology of Eastern Slavs. It belongs to the same class of beings that house perfumes, perfume water areas and field spirits.

Belief in such spirits is inherent to many people, change only their names and a description of the appearance. Somewhere he looks like a man (old man in simple clothes), somewhere is a huge hairy creature possessing great power. The last description makes it from a snow man.

There is a popular belief that the devil can alter its growth, to become invisible, to publish different sounds (including talking). In some descriptions it is accompanied by a strong wind. It is believed that the devil no shadow. Some legends says that in order to see the true face of the devil, you need to look through the right ear of the horse or through the clip sitting between three harrows

The devil cares about the forest as his master, guarding him is the protector of forest animals and plants. He can take revenge on the people who litter in the woods, in vain to kill a lot of animals or plants, noise or otherwise behave properly. On the other hand, with the demon you can agree to, for example, showed best berry or mushroom picking terrain, could provide luck in hunting and safe grazing. For successful hunting we can conclude with the demon contract: to bring him a gift of "pervorodnoe" Easter egg, bread with salt or first production.

The influence of the devil was considered the cause of wandering of a man in the woods, tying him to the beliefs about "the prodigal places," or as it's more modern name, including places and with such properties, anomalous zones. He could be seen ahead at a distance and do not let yourself to catch up, setting the stage for a man in a swamp or thicket. For these purposes he could just bring the Wraith to man to get lost even in very familiar place. As a result, with the demon tied the loss of people and livestock in the forest. The cause of his behavior usually are not known.

It was believed that to get rid of the attention of a Goblin you can use prayer, foul, charms, and other means. To remove these charms, you need to wear your clothes inside out.

The devil, like other mystical beings living between our and other worlds, attributed the ability to predict the future.

Despite the technological advances and the almost complete development of territories, the belief in the devil still exists. Mention of it is infrequent, but still occur in modern unexplained facts and true stories.

The man with the black eyes anthropomorphic creature asks to log in unusual eye color

The man with the black eyes

Relatively recently (about 20 years ago), the legend of people with black eyes began to gain popularity. Usually they are referred to as ghosts, but due to the frequency of their appearance, they can be brought into a separate phenomenon.

These creatures look exactly like humans, only their eyes (sometimes only the iris, and sometimes the entire white) are filled with black. Visual age, according to eyewitnesses, is most often children's, but there are also adults.

It should be noted that the color of the eyes can be not only black. They say that similar creatures are found with completely white, red, and even glowing eyes.

The very first story about encounters with these creatures is considered to be the description of a meeting with them by journalist Brian Bettler:

On January 16, 1998, at about 10 p.m., he stopped in the well-lit parking lot of a movie theater to fill out an Internet bill. Suddenly, someone knocked on the window of his car. They were two boys about 13 years old. One of them turned to the journalist, explaining that they wanted to watch the film, but forgot the money at home. Would he do them a favor and drive them home?

The boys seemed perfectly normal, but Bettler was beginning to feel a terrible, inexplicable fear. Something in their behavior, in their speech (only one boy spoke, and he spoke not as a teenager, but as an adult, confidently and without embarrassment), in their movements was very strange and alarming. Brian suddenly realized that the movie they were supposed to be watching had started about an hour ago and was about to end. He didn't want to let the children in the car, but he realized that the hand, not obeying him, was reaching out to open the door.

When their eyes met, Brian froze in horror: the children's eyes were coal-black. The pupils and white iris were absent. All black eyeballs. For just a moment, Brian looked away. But it was enough to bring him back to his senses. The reporter pulled his hand back. And the boys started talking again: "Come on, mister, we won't do anything to you, we don't have any weapons, let us in. We can't go in until you tell us we can. With an incredible effort, Bettler shook himself out of his stupor and stepped on the gas. The car started moving. Brian looked around, and there wasn't a soul in the parking lot.

"I believe that I was in danger, and I believe that it came from something extraordinary. What I went through then was one of the most terrible events in my life, and I have no desire to face such a thing again," Brian repeated more than once.

In the same 1998, Brian Bettler created a list of paranormal phenomena associated with such creatures. People from Texas, Portland, and Oregon sent him their impressions of sudden encounters with "black-eyed children"by mail. However, by 2013, the network began to believe that the legend of people with black eyes was based on one of the series of the show Weekly Strange (exploiting interesting, shocking and strange topics), in which reports of cases of such children were published.

Unfortunately, we could not find any official evidence, photos or videos of such meetings, although there are quite a lot of eyewitness accounts.

Let's highlight the common features in the reports of these eyewitnesses:

  • unusual eye color;
  • almost all meetings take place either at night or late at night;
  • creatures usually interact with an eyewitness, and most often they want to be sure to let them into a house or vehicle.

Descriptions of these creatures and their behavior overlap with stories about vampires rather than ghosts. But who are they? Creatures from a parallel world? Aliens? Demons?

From rational explanations, in addition to errors of perception and deliberate falsification, which can explain any phenomenon, we can distinguish the following:

Body modifications. Now tattoos are available not only on the body, but also on the eyes. In this case, people paint the iris or the entire visible eyeball in some color.

Colored lenses. They can also have any pattern and color, and occupy almost the entire visible part of the eye.

Diseases of the eye. The eyes may have an unusual appearance due to some disease. Examples include aniridia or cataracts, as well as other diseases (including drug intoxication and intoxication) and injuries that lead to changes in the shape or color of the eyes. So, with burst blood vessels, the eye protein can take on a red hue, and because of Adi's syndrome, at least one of the pupils is abnormally dilated.

Separately, you can select just an unusual eye color, given to a person from birth. For example, albinos often have red or purple-tinted eyes.

Those who deliberately distort their features often do not stop at changing the color of their eyes. They can insert implants, deform limbs, etc., which makes them even more like representatives of another world.

Now this topic is already fueling itself. Over time, from urban legends and descriptions of eyewitnesses, creatures with black eyes appeared on movie theater screens and book pages. These images were used in the TV series "The X-Files" and "Supernatural", and in 2012 the film "Children with Black Eyes" was released, which helped to popularize them.

The mystical fog makes you wander

The mystical fog

Fog is found in many certificates of unexplained facts, from chronorally and ending with stories about the meeting with UFOs.

Fog – atmospheric phenomenon, the accumulation of water in the air when formed the smallest products of the condensation of water vapor. This is quite a common phenomenon, known around the globe, but many witnesses of unexplained phenomena associated with the appearance of fog phenomena, eyewitnesses or participants which they have become. Such phenomena are rare and largely specific to a particular area, but distributed worldwide.

Below we will briefly discuss the phenomena that, according to eyewitnesses closely associated with the appearance of fog.

Description of the phenomena associated with the appearance of fog

All phenomena, compounded by fog, can be divided into the following groups:

  • Meeting with the ghosts;
  • Movement in space (sometimes in conjunction with the following);
  • Move in time (sometimes in conjunction with the previous);
  • Encounter with a UFO;
  • An unusual view of the fog without an accompanying phenomenon.

Below we will describe these phenomena.

Meeting with the ghosts

The appearance of fog when meeting with the ghosts is a fairly common detail in the eyewitness accounts. In addition to meetings with vague shapes, the witnesses describe the appearance of a certain fog or haze when the ghostly silhouettes in the indoor or outdoor space. This can be attributed to the emergence of a variety of buildings and equipment, which disappear when the dissipation of the fog. This image is often exploited by various authors in books or movies.

Movement in space (sometimes in conjunction with the following)

This group describes the phenomenon occurring in legends, true stories and eyewitness accounts quite often. It lies in the fact that people (one or more) fall in the dense fog, and then appear somewhere else (sometimes this distance can reach tens of kilometers). Sometimes this phenomenon is compatible with the following, i.e. the time during which a person overcomes this distance does not correspond to the usual time required for this purpose in the big or smaller party.

The most famous reference to this phenomenon is considered to be the Philadelphia experiment allegedly conducted by the Navy 28 October 1943. During this experiment allegedly disappeared, and then instantly shifted in space by several tens of kilometers of the destroyer "Aldridge" (U. S. S. Eldridge (eng.)) with a team of 181 people. Just possibly, this includes the disappearance of the Norfolk regiment.

Move in time (sometimes in conjunction with previous)

Phenomena of this group are found in the descriptions of eyewitnesses are very rare. They talk about moving the witness in time (past or future) from several seconds to several hundreds of years or the occurrence of fog of a person or group of people from the past or the future (the witnesses is calculated by the characteristic detail – the suit, the car, etc.).

This phenomenon associated with the appearance of chronometrage, as well as various disappearance of people and technology. A vivid example is the legend of the Bermuda triangle.

Encounter with a UFO

This group of phenomena can be divided into two subgroups:

  • The appearance of the UFO
  • The Appearance Of Nonauto

Description of eyewitnesses similar to the descriptions from the first group with the only difference in the form and identification of emerging objects. In the first case there is a clear outline of dead relatives, acquaintances or just people and animals, in this subgroup describe unknown creatures, different "ethereal" parts. It is also known a lot of evidence, when in the mist (or fog) appeared glowing spheres of different sizes and colors, which are usually associated with the UFO phenomenon.

An unusual view of the fog without an accompanying phenomenon

The group "an unusual form of fog" included facts in which the eyewitness does not describe any particular phenomenon or unusual, in his view, the phenomenon, except for the fog. It may seem unusual in form, colour or place of occurrence.

The most famous type of fog is "the crimson fog" or "fire mist". It is usually described as the wall or "rain of fire". Sometimes it is described by those who had been inside it. It is usually harakterizuyut as "cold fire". Description inherent in most posts:"Cold, not scorching fire flows down from the ledges and corners of objects spread along walls and ceilings. "Going away", the fiery mist gets the usual white shade".

Known as the mists with the "inner glow", green fogs, fogs with clear edges and regular shape, etc.

This division is rather conditional, since the phenomena often overlap or coincide with each other, therefore, we next consider hypotheses without divisions on the phenomena.


For a start we will understand more what the fog is an atmospheric phenomenon.

Fog appears when moisture in the air when formed the smallest products of the condensation of water vapor. That is, the relative humidity of the air when fog is usually close to 100 % (exceeds 85-90 % ). However, in extreme cold (-30° and below) in the settlements, railway stations and airfields fogs can occur at any relative humidity of air (even less than 50 % ) — due to condensation of water vapour formed by the combustion of fuel (in engines, furnaces, etc.) and emitted into the atmosphere through exhaust pipes and chimneys.

  • From this definition it follows the first hypothesis: if the air temperature is above -10° it is tiny droplets of water at -10...-15° – a mixture of water droplets and ice crystals at temperatures below -15° C to ice crystals, glittering in the sunlight or in the light of the moon and lights.
  • Phenomena associated with fog are known atmospheric phenomena or objects of natural origin, taken in a certain situation abnormal (for example, the cloud of pollen, Brokensky Ghost). This can be attributed to such mists as a suspension of the chemical substances content in the air of different fluorescent microorganisms etc as an example be the situation - fogs occur frequently in ventilated swampy lowlands, which can accumulate toxic fumes, leading to poisoning (marsh gas or vapours of essential oils of some plants, e.g., rosemary).
  • Vision fog occur at the level of physiology of perception and are simple, not folding in a substantive way by the deceptions of vision along with flashes of light, sparkles, smoke, spots, stripes, dots. Their causes can be different.
  • The image of fog is often used in psychology (for example, when autotreninga) and hypnosis to mark the boundary of transition from one situation to another. The same image is used by a man in a dream. This hypothesis suggests that people naturally or artificially flows into the trance state and sees some of the images, thus can travel long distances, but not remember. It is worth noting that the feelings of the person during the trance by its brightness and naturalness are virtually indistinguishable from the real thing.
  • V. Readers believes that the red mist can be a rare form known auroras, which occurs directly to the ground.
  • According to the scientific consultant of "Solaris" Professor Alexey Labutina to blame the so-called criteri. It was a "fantastic" living creatures consisting of very rarefied matter, so the human eye does not see them. But in the air, saturated with moisture, they become visible. This version resonates with the observations of the "classical" humanoid ghosts. It is believed that energy is free from the body of the human soul in certain moments is able to ionize the air.
  • The employee of the Siberian branch of RAS Vasily Kropachev sure fire mist appears because of the powerful geomagnetic emission from the depths of our planets, which, in turn, cause shifts in the tectonic plates.


To give a precise description of this phenomenon is not depending on the fact that the options descriptions vary. The only unifying feature is their very existence of the fog, its color, glow, shape, density, and other characteristics can change, so the Association of these phenomena in one rather arbitrary.

The material for analysis at this point can only serve as testimony of witnesses and the inspection of the scene of the fact, as authentic photographs and videomaterials while this phenomenon could not be found.

The Rumbling Of The Earth sounds without visible sources unusual sounds

The Rumbling Of The Earth

"Sounds of the Apocalypse" and "creaking of the earth", "the groan of the earth", "ground hum", "ground noise" etc. are terms designating the kind of sound anomalies recorded in different parts of the Earth. These sounds records audio and hear most people.

Sometimes those who hear a strange hum, feel the attacks of causeless panic, headaches, nausea, weakness, dizziness, mood swings, they become irritable, can't sleep, depressed.

It is believed that reports of strange sounds from the sky, described as similar to a pipe, metal, whistling, cracking, buzzing and rustling, began to appear a very long time. Some Christian fundamentalists equate these sounds with "Jericho trumpets", because in the history of Jericho (from the Old Testament) refers to the mystical event, accompanied by loud sounds from the sky. Modern scientists believed that electronicAsia sounds caused by a meteorite, could stay in people's memory as "the trumpet sounds", and the subsequent destruction of the walls of the city in the earthquake and fires caused by cometary bombardment, it could eventually be transformed into the biblical legend of the attack of the army of the Israelites.

A similar phenomenon was described in the "Revelations" of St. John the Evangelist (Chapter 8: "And I saw the seven Angels which stood before God; and to them were given seven trumpets..."), Homer's Iliad (Canto XXI: "Rushed with a noisy alarm; deep earth groaned; Round, like the trumpet, resounded the great heaven."). Antique historical evidence also linked the honking horns and trumpets of mass destruction.

The first wave of modern evidence was only in the 70-ies of the twentieth century, when reports of strange sounds began to come from different countries. Following a surge in such messages was in the middle of the 90s. the Third wave in the beginning of the two thousandth acquired really mass character. In connection with the abundance of recording devices, the message was reinforced by video and audio.

A resident of British Columbia (province of Canada), Glen MacPherson has created a website dedicated to this unexplained phenomenon, which collects testimonies of people from different countries, and registers them in a database.

Scientists offer several possible explanations for this phenomenon.

In the eighties of the last century, the Australian physicist Colin K. (Colin Keay) demonstrated that meteorites can produce electronicAsia sounds (more precisely, to generate ultra-long waves in the atmosphere may be converted into audible sounds). They are usually described as a hissing or crackling.

In addition to meteorites, sources electronicAsia sounds also think the natural geological processes (volcanoes, earthquakes, soil failures, etc.)

Researchers from the USArray Earthscope have discovered a series of infrasonic noise arising from the collision of two ocean waves. In principle, occur so the sound can spread around the globe.

You should pay attention to the theory of Professor Elchin Khalilov. He believes that the strange sounds associated with the disasters occurring in the Sun.

With regard to particular theories, the sound recorded on the coast of California, it may be the mating call of fish-the Midshipman (Porichthys genus). Her song, coming from the sea in the night, reminiscent of the roar of aircraft engines or noise of sewage pumps. There were cases when these strange sounds were mistaken for alien invasion.

There are also a number of unscientific theories that try to explain the record and evidence the emergence of this phenomenon:

  • strange sounds like the alien ships
  • the video superimposed the sounds of an unusual musical instruments (for example, waterphone)
  • error, a hoax or an advertising company

It should be noted that in each case observation of this phenomenon is the explanation could be his.

The shadow man anthropomorphic creature tanypodinae creature

The shadow man

Among the creatures found in the stories of eyewitnesses, it is possible to allocate such kinds of ghosts as shadow people. They have been described as "teppodama figure", often in human form, but not only (in our practice there were, for example, medetomodine creatures, and a creature similar to a horse). Usually see them on the periphery of vision. Usually they don't do anything wrong, but the observer there is a clear feeling of someone's third-party presence. Rarely the presence of Taepodong beings is accompanied by an asthma attack that resembles ideas about the house or the evil witch that comes in the night to take in human energy.

It should be noted that the shadow people often appear in the night, but this is, again, not necessarily much less, but still there are descriptions of similar cases that occurred in daylight hours.

As described by witnesses:

So read the newspaper, when suddenly you notice that someone is standing in the corner. translate the look and nobody's there!

Woke up at night somehow. I had a nightmare. Suddenly I see: somewhere not far away from the bed is a dark translucent people. Before I start examining him as he disappeared.

Left as something sensitive to me. In my sleep I feel like someone is watching me. His eyes open and he stands. People do not see, but I understand that looks. And disappeared.

Standing in the kitchen waiting for the kettle to boil. I caught myself thinking that the far wall someone dark moves. I look translated, but I can't. Although I quite clearly saw a shadow.

We gave the typical description of this phenomenon, which occur in almost all parts of the world.

By itself, the shadow in the myths quite often. In the mythology of many peoples shadow is the part of man, his soul. Here goes an ancient belief that if you hit the witch or impure in the body, the pain they feel, to hurt them, you need to hit the shadow. In some countries it was believed that if the enemy steps on the shadow and whisper the curse, the person will die. So detached from the person the shadow often represents a Ghost or spirit of a deceased, but it is not the only option. For example, in the beliefs of the Serbs, there are ideas that the shadow may leave its owner and roam the world itself.

What are shadow people?

From the point of view of esoterics and parapsychology it can be the soul of man, his astral double, the energy entity, a visitor from a parallel world and even an alien from outer space or another time.

From the point of view of science there are the following hypotheses:

  1. Illusion. The human brain perceives the heterogeneity of light and shadow on the surrounding objects as separate entities.
  2. People-the shadow is a real shadow whose appearance is provoked by the glare of car headlights, the flashes of light or something like that.
  3. Hypnagogia is a physical condition in which the human mind is between sleep and wakefulness. In this state the person is conscious, but his brain can "lift" images from the subconscious, as it occurs during sleep.
  4. Floater - change mesh structure of the vitreous body of the eye due to the fact that the individual fibers thicken and lose their transparency.

Separately possible to allocate a illness mental or physical. Of the latter, as example, Charles bonnet syndrome, which occurs in mentally healthy people with serious disorders of the visual system. It manifests itself as hallucinations of different levels of complexity: from geometric shapes to silhouettes and faces.

Supernatural shadow silhouettes became popular in urban folklore and contemporary culture. They meet in books, TV shows, movies and games as the main or secondary characters.
