    Each has a video camera and records it happening from different angles, then makes them available for scientific study, which the results will then be presented to the United Nations. And the ghost shows up there.

    Mass hallucinate? Never heard of that before. Got any links to support this claim?

    I suppose that, as with most things, each individual circumstance would need to be verified by any person wishing to be certain of the relative validity, and even then results can be faulty because they could, themselves, misinterpret what they are perceiving.

    I understand what a hallucination is. I was referring to mass hallucinating, implying that multiple people are seeing the same hallucination. I have never heard about this in my life. It is kinda freaky even thinking about it.

    I would think it is similar to mass hysteria, or other large groups experiencing similar things, kinda like a spiritual level of connectivity that ends up with people reaching out to each other's energy and transmitting even partial pieces of information.

    It is also called Mass Hysteria and typically revolves around an "illness" that a group seems to contract. However, it also includes mass hallucinations, an example of which many people claim is the miracle at Fatima in Portugal in which thousands of people reported seeing a miracle appearance by Mary. Here is a link:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mass_hysteria

    If scientists were also on the scene of the video taping and were able to verify that no CGI or trickery was involved with the devices, that would be pretty good. Of course, if the spirit showed up at the UN in front of live TV cameras, that might do it.

    Call me cynical but when it comes to religion, the credibility of the stories has to come into question. Also consider the fact these accounts came from children.

    I would like to see accounts of "mass hallucinations" from adults and larger groups of people.

    May be these events are one of those things for which you "just have to be there"

    That is what I am trying to explore: do you have to be there and see it for yourself or can it be proved in a way for nonparticipants to accept the evidence?

    I think there are so many conspiracy theorists because in this day and age it's so easy to fake evidence.

    Oftentimes even something seemingly unreal has a foundation in either truth, or what was perceived to be fully true, and this certainly leaves one to wonder about what* the definition of "actual and undeniable" proof even would be, ya dig?
