Cryptozoology and Strange Creatures: Is it all in the Mind? Yes, Literally!

How and why is it that so many people are fascinated by reports of lake monsters, sea serpents, Cthulhu-like beasts, mermaids and more? Jonathan Downes, of the Center for Fortean Zoology, believes there may very well be an answer to this question. It’s a question that may also have a bearing on our beliefs on other unknown animals, too, such as Bigfoot, Mothman, and the Abominable Snowman. Downes is keen to stress that his theory does not explain every aspect of the overall “mystery animal” controversy. He does, however, suspect that it explains at least a portion of it. With that said, I will now hand you over to Downes: “Researchers Albert Budden and Paul Devereux have both written extensively about ‘energies’ which can have certain effects on the human mind. Devereux suggests consciousness-affecting energy can originate via natural radioactivity and electro-magnetic fields. His books list numerous examples of anomalous experiences he believes have occurred after an encounter with these energies. Budden contends that modern electro-magnetic pollution as well as natural electro-magnetism can have a radical and often deleterious effect on people.”
