Mind Fuck Tuesday: Women, Periods and Poltergeists
**Bob Saget has a weird new show on A&E tonight called "Strange Days" and in this one he hangs with a group of Bigfoot hunters. Definitely worth a look-see and a laugh.**
One of the most popularly observed explanations for poltergeist activity is women, especially adolescent women just getting their menses. So, is this just another misogynist male fear of women and their "magical abilities" from childbirth to periods? Another Curse of Eve scenario and blame it on women syndrome? Seriously, in folklore tradition, that would make the most sense.
In a book I'm reviewing later this week on this blog, a discussion was made of poltergeists and women's menstrual cycles. The author of "The Physics of the Paranormal" postulates that the female's bodily anti mass field radiations must converge on stones to manipulate them and make them fall from the ceiling. Basically the explanation is along the lines of our bodies being able to change things on a molecular level. Well, if that were true, I suppose my ninth grade Algebra teacher, Mr. Osborne at Robinson Secondary School, would have gone up in flames after the first lecture and those girls in the cafeteria who hated when I got attention from football players, might have made me combust with theirs stares alone, especially if like most girlfriends they ended up menstruating the same time of the month!
Kidding aside, one thing I learned as a psychic reading abandoned locations for Julie and I's book is that locations where hormones (teens) combined with alcohol, emotions and drugs makes for an insane residual. I know of many times in which people in strongly emotional times and the aid of mental illness or drug/alcohol influences can seriously leave residual emotion and even patterns on an environment. What is it about strong hormones in menstruating women? Perhaps the same thing that causes us to be weepy or angry around our period times, those wonderful hormones, play part in psychokinesis.
So, do you think there's anything to this theory of women causing poltergeists with their scary female hormones? I'm curious to hear your input.
**Tomorrow Julie and I are hitting the road to finish our abandoned book by seeking out yet more abandoned sites and no doubt some insane videos that I take along the way. Expect to see the results of our insanity during the next few days. (You also might wish the people in the town of Superior, AZ to just pull the shutters closed and wait out the rampage)**
