'Psychic attack' reported at Japanese school

The strange series of events saw 18 schoolgirls end up in hospital after experiencing trouble breathing.

In a classic case of mass hysteria, troubles at the all-girls Kamigōri High school in Japan started when one girl complained of a "bad feeling" and started to hyperventilate. The mysterious symptoms soon began to spread as word got around that the girls were actually under "psychic attack", leading to several hospitalizations and calls from some of the students to bring in an exorcist.

The incident is the latest in a number of high profile mass hysteria cases that seem to predominantly involve all-girl schools in Japan and other countries where tales of ghosts, spirits and demons are commonplace.

"In a fantastically strange bit of news from the Land of the Rising Sun, a “psychic attack” straight out of a Stephen King novel was reported at an all-girls school, sending over a dozen to the hospital and shaking up the student body."

There must be a selection process for something to evolve. If the meme is to live inside the minds of people people will select those traits that allow it to continue and reproduce. Though on its natural level those selected traits are unconscious. Although a case could be made as in certain kinds of memes that are consciously selected. Advertising programs, slogans, jingles are consciously designed to reproduce themselves. The other day I heard my boys singing the theme song for bonanza. They have never seen an episode in their lives. I racked my brain to figure out where they heard it from... [More]

Sheldrake has coined this as morphic resonance. There is some data suggesting that once something is known it becomes easier to know it world wide.

The [u]delivery[/u] and I suppose the [u]receptiveness [/u]of individuals plays a part in the selection process. Delivery as in Quality, false Authority, Energy.. (Am sure there's more). Receptiveness as in Openness, Conditioning, Belief & Cultural context.. (actually I think that Social and Cultural context plays a really big part) They operate at various levels, Infecting the mind, and using the individual to broadcast it's purpose, overriding the individuals own purpose. On or at it's own level it I think it has purpose and agenda, but no real consciousness, that it gains ... [More]

I like these ideas. I have longed viewed business and relationships as an ecology of sorts. Parasites, preditors, and all. When I look at a businesses or relationships I start to relate it to what I know about nature. It's very effective because its easier to identify something's mode of operations and how to deal with it. Indeed I view banks and certain professions like creatures, religions as well. I try to see where I fit in. This was very helpful for me when I had a drinking problem. I view alcohol as an old parasite. The bacteria that make it have discovered a niche in human bio... [More]

A living idea rubbish, joking of course , considering teenagers have been known to cause poltergeist activity it's plausible. The placebo effect can also be considered in this instance too, the human mind is a powerful thing. Thirdly I would be interested if there was any connection to Ouija boards before these things happened. And as stated above construction work could also be to blame, it could be any of these things or a mixture of them.

I would say no one here knows many young Japanese girls .... They're the most hysterical bunch you've ever,and I do mean ever ,seen . Go to a concert for a male idol there. Dozens of them faint and have to be Brown bagged from hyperventilating . They carry them out and lie them in the hallways with people trying to revive them . A guy breaks up with them ,they hyperventilate into unconsciousness ,and declare they will now commit suicide when they wake up ,and then faint again . They are absolute masses of hysteria way into their twenties . Women with half a brain,cannot stand i... [More]
