Monsters etc.. Discussed by Steiger
Monsters & Creatures:
One of the first authors I favored in early readings is Brad Steiger.Here are some points he recently spoke of:
" Author Brad Steiger shared some of his research into purportedly true cases of encounters with monsters and creatures. "The monster has always been with us, always, since the earliest days of our human experience," Steiger said, pointing to the ancient Franco-Cambrian cave wall drawings of half-man, half-animal beings. Many of these monsters, or entities, are what he called paraphysical -- from another dimension and only here for a certain time.
Steiger believes bigfoot could be a paraphysical entity. This may explain why finding one in the wild has proven so difficult. Steiger himself claimed to have once had the ape-like creature cornered on an expedition, but never found the actual being. Nonetheless, he has recovered scat and hair that may be from the beast. According to Steiger, an analysis of the hair sample revealed it was humanoid in origin, but not fully human. He also suggested that what some perceive as bigfoot could be the ghost of a giant ape that once roamed the continent.
Steiger reported on a young boy's encounter with a seemingly benevolent bogey man that appeared as "the Walt Disney version of the wolf in the Three Little Pigs." Steiger thinks this entity may have simply been trying to show the young boy a reality beyond that of his day-to-day existence. Malignant entities interact with people as well. Demons, or spirit parasites, use human bodies to commit obscene acts and destroy the lives of their hosts, he continued. Many psychiatrists are beginning to take demon possession seriously, Steiger added, noting that some people in mental institutions may be legitimately possessed.
Steiger recounted the story of Laura Starr Latta, who died tragically in 1899, one month before her 20th birthday. According to legend, her tormented spirit can be seen walking a lonely stretch of Arkansas' Highway 64 on dark and rainy nights."
