It was invisible, but there. Stories like this have been reported countless times by mountaineers, explorers, and survivors, as well as by people who have been widowed, but also by patients suffering from neurological or psychiatric disorders. They commonly describe a presence that is felt but unseen, akin to a guardian angel or a demon. Inexplicable, illusory, and persistent.
They showed that the "feeling of a presence" actually results from an alteration of sensorimotor brain signals, which are involved in generating self-awareness by integrating information from our movements and our body's position in space.
It bugs me how people who never had it happen to them say that those who have had it happen are either liars or crazy. It's like being a virgin and saying that anyone who finds pleasure in sex is either a liar or crazy. You can't judge because you haven't experienced it.
what the healthy person experiences is a small aspect of what, incorrectly diagnosed...people with disorders get.

Well the article is based on research conducted on persons with psychological or neurological disorders. Not the average healthy person who experiences a paranormal presence, but good find!
