In the beginning of things men were animals and animals men. ~ Algonquin saying

"For instance, on the planet Earth, man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much — the wheel, New York, wars and so on — whilst all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time. But conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they were far more intelligent than man — for precisely the same reasons." ~ The Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy

Nick Redfern: "Monsters and Proof"

On Lair of the Beasts, Nick Redfern writes about the fact cryptids (Bigfoot, chupacabras, etc.) are elusive:Lair of the Beasts: Monsters and Proof -
"It is issues like this that, probably 15 or more years ago now, made me utterly give up on the idea that the monsters of our world are simply animals that science has yet to identify, classify, and confirm in terms of their existence. The stark reality of the situation is that there is something very strange about all the sundry strange beasts out there. Their elusiveness is taken to ridiculous levels."

An excellent article. And one that takes a surprising turn. I'm not sure what to think of the direction Redfern goes, but it's interesting, possible (anything's possible) and food for thought. In fact, if Redfern is correct, that's damn amazing. You'll know what I mean when you read the article -- can we be capable of such things? My personal experience tells me we can. And yet there are problems for me with this theory; if true, why can't we manifest other things?
