Power of Suggestion.

After reading this article, I thought it was an interesting idea to keep members of investigations in the dark about the background on places. However, I have run into several issues, including: 1) people are unwilling to go to an unknown destination 2) by providing people with a name, everything is very google-able unless it is an original investigation.

The article basically says that by only having a few members of your team with knowledge of a location, that you are getting a better and more fair feel for a place. When everyone knows the location, they are going to see what they should see - hence the power of suggestion.

How has suggestion played a part in your investigations? I can remember going out with a group once (a long time ago), and somebody passed wind. Everyone in the group started talking about how they were smelling sulfur and that there must be a demon present. The power of suggestion, especially in the paranormal world, is really influential. Considering that the paranormal world thrives on faith, everyone is ready to believe in something.

Well Jax, you are what you eat. Tell someone a place is haunted and they will never look at the same again. Of course just being an investigator creates suggestion. Sometimes the suggestion is so strong it manifests itself from the mind of the observer. Hitler was good at suggestion.

could the disappearances in the Bermuda Triangle be due to large methane bubbles being released ["white water"] ?

that is false
atlantis is in abyss -the sea under the sea
if you draw a line from PILLARS OF HERK to bimini
it is in the triangle
the bimini road is fractured beach rock pushed up from atlantis
starting to surface
the crust on crust rubbing opens vortex's and worm holes to other places.
from 2015-2020 it will rise
with it 10 billion gals of OIL

That's horrible! I wouldn't suggest that if I were you. I'd get general Tso's chicken instead.

Panda say, No MSG. Who knows what you are getting at some of these other Chinese restaurants. I'm a bigger fan of Japanese, if you can find a place that deals in it.
