Have you ever driven down a street and had the streetlights go out as you go by or near them? One after the other?
Is it just the sensor, or is there something more?
This is one new aspect of research that parapsychologists are begining to study. Commonly known as the SLIder effect, theorists believe that certain individuals subconsciously create a form of bio-energy, or electromagnetic energy. This energy interferes with the functioning of electronic devices, from street lamps to wrist watches, computers to television sets.
The range of SLIder-ism varies. Some, such as myself, notice an increase in activity in group situations or during stressful periods. Others report consistent activity.
Lately, I have seen an increase in my abilities. This comes after a year of working in an art studio and writing about the arts as a freelance reporter. Often, my "abilities" seem to peak around the time I have completed many projects.
I have noticed that several others who have reported SLIder phenomena around them are also in creative fields, or are creative individuals. So, of course, I have a theory:
I am wondering if artists, and other creative individuals, would be more likely to be SLIders. If, in creating, we expend a positive energy to make our creations, could it be that to balance out, a form of negative "interference" energy is created? In effect, it's the Yin and Yang, a balancing of creative and destructive forces.
What do you think?
