'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."

Religions, yes.. Politics, yes.. Phylosophy, yes.. Even corporations, organisations and our local socal clubs are rife with them as far as I can tell, and their purpose like any basic life form seldom goes beyond self preservation at their lowest short lived levels. The stonger ones at higher levels are all vying for control over us and each other. As for being conscious, i really don't know, I tend to think of them more like ideas who experience consciousness though people, but never of themselves.. I guess experiencing any form of consciousness is their drug.. I don't know it it's a case of ... [More]

Here's the latest one in the Philippines School officials suspend classes over ‘evil spirits’ The church worker said that several balete trees were cut down at the school only recently to give way to the construction of a covered court. This may have angered some spirits, the worker added.

And also the 100th monkey effect and the 'tipping point' http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hundredth_monkey_effect http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tipping_point_%28sociology%29 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.

There must be a selection process for something to evolve. *shortened* We are apart of its consciousness both a host and an actor. In some respects I think a thing like a religion can truly be alive and conscious but it views people about how we view a brain cell. The delivery and I suppose the receptiveness 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 opera... [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.

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 it . They use thi... [More]
