Specifically, a "silent" exhaust fan was sending out low frequency vibrations that bounced back and forth on the lab's walls until they formed a powerful wave at... 18.9Hz. Right at the top of the panic range.
And, according to a NASA study, it was powerful enough to resonate with the average human eyeball, causing "smeared" vision. This is a phenomenon where the eye vibrates just enough to register something static -- say, the frame of your glasses or a speck of dust -- as large, moving shapes.

you mentioned that it could be how one's individual brain is wired... that's my guess too.
just like some people hear higher or lower frequencies than 'normal/average'
just like some people are color blind
so too, there are individuals that are sensitive to see/hear ghosts, even UFOs, there are some who see & journey to the shamanic upper and lower worlds, there are some who have deep insights & or visions, psychics, seers, clairvoyants, etc etc
genes, DNA, hard wiring in the brain may be one aspect...
then there is empathic sensitivity & other traits ones develops... leads to new and almost holographic neural networks created in ones brain which in turn opens more doorways in in ones psyche...
the trick is to be 'balanced' between these seperate Realitiesedit on 15-10-2011 by St Udio because: (no reason given)

I have always been curious as to why some people see and hear ghosts, and others do not ? why do you think this is so ? do you think it is to do with the way a persons brain is wired ? or is it totally unrelated to that. I have heard what I believe to have been a ghost, I was staying at a house about 3 years ago, I came out of the shower, and clearly heard a woman say, hello abbie, abbie being the family's dog, not recognizing the voice i went downstairs, and as you may expect no one is there, and had not been for several hours.
Maybe we will never know for sure until we ourselves pass over, but I would just be interested to get others opinions on this and similar things.
