A few months back I ran into this website: http://www.thisman.org/ and it talks about how one psychiatrist's patient drew a man she kept dreaming of and soon enough, the other patients claimed to have seen him in their dreams.

There are so many comments on the website, I was wondering what you thought of it? Have you heard of this man before?

Through a tiny bit of digging long ago, it was found that the site was created by Andrea Natella, the director of guerrigliamarketing.it, an advertising agency that uses non-conventional communication techniques, like the creation of fictitious events or campaigns as a form of guerrilla marketing.

That tidbit of information aside, everyone is still left wondering what marketing was to be done, and if it was abandoned. There hasn't seemed to be any updating done,  and the site was eventually sold to Ghost House Pictures, a horror movie production company, in promotion for a new film called This Man, written and directed by Bryan Bertino.

My verdict: unconventional viral marketing.

"I think there may be "ghost phenomenon" that may be still not fully understood or dismissed, but that doesn't make it spirits of the dead, anymore than "UFO" means "spaceship" or even "UFO" or "spaceship" is directly related to aliens, or anything else. There is way too much assumption and a baseless reliance on anecdotal lore, like when people assert this or that about the spirit world or the astral plane or Ouija board demons, or religion. I say 'says WHO?'" - Paranormalcy

Yup it'a hoax. I came across this one about 6 months ago and investigated. Here's a link-  http://www.jawbone.t...boogeyman?.html

I remember seeing this absolute years ago, wow, brings back a bit of nostalgia.

As has already been mentioned viral marketing, pretty good though if you ask me.

You make a good point but I'm wondering what they were selling, the ads below the page? Unless it was intended to be subconscious advertising, but I still wonder what they'd sell. Apparently the movie follows the man in the photo and he has to figure out why so many people are having nightmares about him, I'm not sure if it's been released though.

Never seen him before... awake or asleep.

I think I read about this like 6 months ago. Maybe it was that thread Cup of Tea mentioned.

According to this theory this man is the image of the Creator, that is to say one of the forms in which God manifests himself today. This is the reason why his indications and the words he utters during the dreams should be decidedly followed by the dreamers.
Hahaha, wow... So this is the face of the creator...

Cool way to have everyone else write your screen play for you! I have seen this before I think right here on UM. The picture is creepy but I liked the "Dream Imitation Theory" myself. I will probably dream about this guy to night just because I have seen his picture. Makes me wonder if this would work with a different subject, and open the web site up and have the public write a book for me! Good idea, maybe I will.....

I've never dreamed of him myself, but I would be sort of scared if I did...I'm curious how someone could imitate someone else's dream if dreaming is done sub consciously. I don't know much about sleep cycles/dream analysis but whoever came up with this idea must be pretty rich since there's a movie being made about it

g'day DynamiteWithALaserBeam,

I sugest you visit the subject of Jung and his shared consiousness speculation.

Years ago I had some experiences where my wife and I, sleeping close to each other, seemed to have some kind of thought transference / shared dreaming. I put it down to our heads being pretty close. We're both pretty sceptical and analytical about this stuff and am convinced that, whatever it was, it was real.  B)

cheers, zedNuts
