Incubus and Succubus

Incubus and Succubus
Medieval legend claims that demons, both male and female, sexually prey on human beings. The male demon is known as an incubus and the female is the succubus. They generally prey upon the victim when they are sleeping, though it has been reporte
d that females have been attacked while fully lucid. One such event was covered in the book and subsequent movie, The Entity.
There are variations of this sexual demonic legend. In Zanzibar, what is known as the "Popo Bawa" generally preys on men and only in their own beds. In the Chilo‚ Province of Chile, a wretched little dwarf, known as El Trauco, woos young naive women and then seduces them. Ịn Hungary, a Liderc is a demonic sexual predator that flies under the cover of darkness and will appear as a wispy apparition or a fiery light.
Any one of the above succubus' can be blamed for unexpected or unwanted pregnancies, especially in unmarried women, though one can imagine this might be a convenient fabrication to get out of unsavory rumors!
Some confuse the incubus with the legendary "Old Hag" syndrome but it is not. The Old Hag episode is usually restricted to a feeling of great pressure on the chest and not a ghostly sexual encounter. Another difference between the incubus/succubus encounter from the Old Hag is that the former is not always unpleasant while the Old Hag is mostly accompanied by a feeling of death, suffocation and just trying to survive.
Because the incubus and succubus are generally experienced during the sleep state or coming in and out of it, experts feel that it is an imaginary experience and not a real one, however, telling this to the person who has just gone through it, they find that hard to believe as it feels as real as intercourse itself. Who can say for certain if these events are real or imagined but until you've experienced yourself it's hard to determine or judge.

Unsolved Mysteries

Probably one of the most famous, most widely renowned unsolved mysteries of all time is that of the Bermuda Triangle, situated in the Atlantic Ocean, where so many planes and boats have just literary disappeared, no wreckage, or parts or bodies ever being found? A mystery as big as this, remains unsolved to date, and yet planes and ship continue to disappear in the area.
An unsolved mystery in literal terms is a series of events that occurred, or, in the case of the Bermuda triangle, continues to occur, and one for which there is no feasible or scientific explanation. The city of Machhu Pichu lay undiscovered for centuries, famously known as the lost city of the Incas. But who actually built it, and in what date? The same as Stone Henge in the United Kingdom, who constructed such a stone circle, and with what equipment were stones of such a size moved to create the formation of a ring?.
Although there are many hoaxes, and even evidence to people who dedicate their life to hoaxing mysteries, we must ask ourselves, is this work of the supernatural, or who is behind such a set of circumstances.
The most famous crime related unsolved mystery of all time has to be that of Jack the Ripper, who stalked the streets in London, his reign of terror in 1888, ending as abruptly as it begun, but even with the finding of a body floating in the river Thames, no one knows, and never will, who actually was Jack the Ripper, what possessed an individual to rape, torture and mutilate so many young woman, and then, stop.
Another great mystery in history is that of the shroud of Turin, believed to be the death shroud for the body of Jesus Christ, though to date, even with extensive scientific research, and carbon dating techniques, no one is able to give a satisfactory explanation for the outlining of a body on the shroud. The shroud is currently at St john the Baptists church in Turin, and scientists continue to find an explanation..
The Mary Celeste was a ship that set sail from Nova Scotia, Canada, in 1860, later to be bought in a New York auction. Its new owner and family set sail, never to be seen again, though, the ship itself, with no markings or signs of struggle was later found floating in the straights of Gibraltar.
What forces are we working with here? Is the an upper body that we are unaware of that is in control of these events, events that will remain a mystery for ever, as scientists come up with theory upon theory, but never the necessary, essential proof needed to close any of the above such mysterious cases. As much as scientists would like to find a cold and calculated explanation for everything, and strongly disbelieve in supernatural powers at work, they find themselves unable to give explanation for many events. So, who, or what force are these events the work of?

Are UFO's real?

Sooner or later almost everyone sees a so-called UFO (unidentified flying object) in the sky and some people claim to have even seen them on the ground. But if you ask them what they think it was, most will say that it wasn’t an alien craft. Still there are a small percentage of witnesses that believe they have seen something not of this world. So whom to believe: the majority or a little group of potential lunatics? The answer may be both. As we see with most unexplained mysteries there are opinions for and against, but what one comes off top?
Let us examine which type of sightings occurs and how they can be explained. But first it is important to take a look at the person who witnessed a UFO. Many people tend to overreact when they see something they cannot explain. Emotions vary from elation to panic. Hence such witnesses have to be considered as potentially prejudiced and subjective and their statements tend to be exaggerated, inventive and abstruse. In order to come to useful conclusions we have to focus on rational and objective witness statements leaving aside obviously faked and invented reports.
There is a huge number of sightings that have a mundane explanation. Planet Venus is a very good example. There are times in the year when our planetary ’twin sister’ shines extremely bright in the evening/ morning sky. Especially when it is close to the horizon and when you are driving in your car you get the impression that the ‘object’ moves because it seems to pass trees, hills and houses as you drive along the road. Finally it will vanish behind some terrestrial object and you wonder where it has gone. The only way to find out if it is Venus is by either knowing it or by stopping the car and checking if the object is still moving. If it is stationary then it is most likely Venus (or another bright planet/ star). Other objects that are quite often mistaken for ET are satellites and among those so-called Iridium flares in particular. Such satellites reflect the sun light during a couple of seconds up to several minutes which is visible to the observer. As they move quite fast along the sky without making any sound, unlike airplanes or helicopters, they can easily be misinterpreted as UFOs. If you have seen such an object and wonder what is was note its approximate position and the time when you saw it and compare your data with online websites that provide information about the flight paths of most of the Earth orbiting satellites. If you have a match you can be almost certain that what you saw was a satellite.
There are many more objects that can be mistaken for UFOs, e.g. meteors, meteorites, northern lights, lenticular clouds, airplanes, ignited swamp gas, burning rockets etc. Thus the possibility of your UFO being an alien spaceship is very low. However, there is a certain amount of sightings that remains unexplained. In those cases it is important to find commonalities which include the shape and movement of the object. If those commonalities do not meet any criteria for a positive identification as a terrestrial object or a celestial body then you have possibly witnessed something out of this world. If you find no commonality to other unexplained mysteries it was probably a hallucination or a prank played on you with some new type of ‘flying saucer’ dummy.
