Things that Go Bump in the Night

For more than 40 years, Edgar Cayce, also known as “The Sleeping Prophet,” would enter sleep-like states and experience a variety of psychic phenomena. While in these unconscious states, he was reportedly able to diagnose illnesses, recall past lives, and even foretell of events to come. This ability helped him to become the most documented psychic of the 20th century. Fascinated by all aspects of human spiritism, UWG Assistant Professor of Psychology Dr. Christine Simmonds-Moore used Cayce as an example of exceptional experiences (ExE) during her lecture, “Things that Go Bump in the Night (And Day).” If real, Dr. Simmonds-Moore stated, ExEs could challenge the way society views the mind and the capacity of consciousness. There may well be something about human consciousness that appears to be separable from the physical body, even for just a few moments.
