There are some examples of completely mundane events engendering
Oz-like features. A few times in relation to reports of what
turned out to be Chinese lanterns I have seen comments alonfg the
lines of:

"I felt an overwhelming sense of peace and goodwill"

"I thought that the lights were trying to communicate with me"

Indeed, some of these types of comment were used as
justifications to deny that what that particular witness saw was
just lanterns.

I think this kind of phenomena is best studied by university
psychology departments, where the skills and resources to reach
valid conclusions are already in place. Then again, I can't see
the likes of Jerry accepting what professor Chris French, Dr.
Susan Blackmore, or Dr. Michael Persinger uncovers, should any
of them choose to take on such a project. Unless of course they
concluded that all witnesses are perfect in every way.
