You know, regarding this story, one can almost make a clear analogy to a belief in Santa Claus.
I'm sure many will miss the point entirely but if you think about it, both Santa and the beam of light in this story are not real,
...why are we now forced to quickly discount things that make people feel good about themselves and about life?
These naturally happy and feel good feelings are now the equivalent to an endangered species in the world of human emotion.
Actually it's worse because it seems we are at a point now where expressing feelings like these almost offends others.
It's like "how dare you feel good about life when my life sucks!"
Maybe it's an insult to ones intelligence to suggest in a belief of Santa or this beam of light.
I think it's a form of selfish guilt because feel good stories like this tend to make people do things for others. The people that scoff are the
selfish, guilty ones that refuse to do anything for anyone, ever.
It's that ever present me, me, me mindset again.
