Last week Seriah started to release a series of ‘videocasts’ on the show’s Youtube channel, in which he’ll invite run-of-the-mill, ordinary folks to share their own extra-ordinary experiences. The first one starts with a guy named Dave, who shares a couple of rather odd encounters, including seeing a full-front apparition of his brother –who was at the time in a coma after suffering a terrible accident.
One of the reasons I personally loathe the term ‘paranormal’ is that it gives a (false) impression of extreme rarity an infrequent occurrence, which then skeptics use to claim that only ‘cranks & weirdos’ report things like UFO sightings or ghosts apparitions. Yet the fact of the matter is MANY folks have had an unusual experience at least *once* in their life, and most would opt to keep quiet (or share them only with their closest friends) for fear of ridicule.
With this initiative, Seriah is trying to prove to anyone who might be hesitant to come out of the ‘Fortean closet’, that they’re more people who have had a brush with the Unknown than they probably realize, and I for one wholeheartedly support that goal.
