Re: “Myth of the Invisible Ships

By the way, I also like the explanation where the person says they wood question their sanity, because no one else was looking, and therefore stay silent. There was a famous sociological perception experiment with Confederates where the Confederates stated that two lines were different in size when they were really the same, and most people agreed with them!
This would be another more consistent hypothesis than humans not noticing the ships!

Re: “Myth of the Invisible Ships

Well, my comment is that ignoring and survival mode are contradictory , so therefore, one can't have it both ways:
To begin with, Humans are one of the most curious species on the planet.
If they were on "survival mode", it's inherent hyper-focus triggered by the brain's amygdala would actually add to curiosity to the point of hyper-vigilance. The possibility that is brought up in the other post regarding them being aboriginals who is phenomenology include seeing spirits all the time is also a good point. But you can trust that under those circumstances they would have been very aware. Maybe not help early responsive, but very aware. Their survival depends on that awareness in a wild environment.
Of course, the truth is we bring confirmatory bias from our own belief systems to any situation, so I don't know that my analysis is anymore correct.
ButIMO, the natural state of the human - especially spiritually - at that in history, combines with survival brain physiology, to conclude that the invisible hypothesis, or the "they are spirits, and we just hope they will keep moving on" are the more likely explanations.
