Seeing how there are and have been contacts that make it possible for even the most mundane of people to transform into a Black-Eyed person.... or better yet pull a prank using their kids... how would it be possible to tell the differnence between a genuine Black-Eyed kid/person and a prankster? One might argue that it is the sense of uneasiness that is felt upon an encounter with one... though i would counter that you are already predisposed to fear/be leary of anything with all black eyes due to that fact that 1. they look far different or 2. you have heard of the urban legend of BEK's.. ... and if you do not have a way to distinguish the differnce... you can not just pick and choose which you want them to be..... encounters are either all real or all fake....... and seeing how all we have is anectdoatal evidence (and we know how reliable that is) for the existance of BEK/BE people... i am going to wadger that encounters are from individuals that have decided to give a good scare by wearing contact lenses (someting concrete that we do know exists).... just my opinong though.. take it for what it is worth
I wrote my post before I read your post. We must have been on the same wavelength. BTW, you made great points about the impact of expectations and preconceptions. They create the prisms through which we see these phenomena.
