The May edition of Phenomena Magazine is ready for download and is as cracking as ever. Particularly appealing to me are the three separate articles all of which in their own way explore the (super)nature of the ghostly phenomenon. Robert Young in ‘What is a Ghost?’ discusses the various theories made to account for ghosts and John Pyrtz, in ‘Things That Go Bump In The Night’, particularly focuses on the biological possibilities – hallucinations, brain malfunctions, eyesight issues etc – and raises the interesting point that our almost phobic fear of ghosts is a pointer to their genuine existence. Peter McCue completes the trio by highlighting the peculiarity of apparitions of non-living things, especially planes, trains and automobiles, and the problem this poses for those who believe ghosts are returning spirits of the dead.
In addition there are articles on the Moon-landing conspiracy theory, and personal account of a Bigfoot sighting and several excellent articles on UFOs by Nick Pope, Andy Roberts, Steve Mera etc. If you haven’t already done so, download your free copy of the May edition of Phenomena now: http://www.phenomenamagazine.co.uk
