Nothing is more intriguing that a good mystery story. Ever since the earliest apes crawled out of the primordial soup and grew legs, mankind has been witness to incredible and frightening phenomena which defy explanation. Imagine how the earliest Human or Neanderthals felt when the Sun suddenly “went out” during the day? He must have been terrified, thinking the gods were angry and that the world was ending. We now understand Solar Eclipse’s but there are still hundreds, no thousands, of phenomena that still defy explanation despite rigorous scientific examination.
