Sasquatches all seem to have the ability to instill dread in humans that find themselves around these nocturnal giants of the night. At first, I used to think that the dread was simply because I had a fair idea of how big and powerful the sasquatches were, in conjunction with how close that I knew I was to them. Now, I think more is going on during such episodes.
When one is alone at night in a remote location, or with a friend, particularly a woman, sasquatches are not terribly shy about making their presence known. To accomplish this task, they might walk louder than necessary, break brush or tree limbs, throw rocks, knock trees, knock rocks, and especially vocalize with chatter, language, or screams.
After spending a great deal of time around sasquatches (which remained visually hidden for the most part), I came to the conclusion that they possess a unique ability to instill dread upon a person. In other words, they can literally trigger a fearful reaction if they wish to do so. And so, I came up with the term "dread response" to describe this strange phenomenon.
The response has a different effect on different people. Normally, it triggers the "fight-flight" portion of the reptilian complex in the human brain and causes the victim to feel the urge to flee the scene. If the victim is armed with a weapon, he (or she) will keep it near just in case it is needed. And, of course, the dread response triggers a boost of adrenaline.
Ghosts (or what I term non-human spirits that were NEVER human) often trigger the same response, stimulating the victim's adrenals. This coincidence has not been lost on me, and I don't think it is a coincidence entirely. It is certainly possible that sasquatches share a propensity with spirits to feed upon the psychological energy that is generated by extreme cases of terror, or, to put it simply, terrorism. This, too, will be explored in a later blog entry.
Suffice it to say there that sasquatches often fall under the category of being terrorists because they quite literally, through some diabolical gift, possess the ability to trigger a dread response seemingly upon command. Various armies and governments around the world must have taken notice of this skill set because it would definitely come in handy as a weapon of war. When the dread response reaches a fever pitch, all the victim can think about is running. In this way, the "fight flight" portion of the reptilian complex, when overloaded, becomes merely the "flight" portion of the brain.
Sasquatch researchers have been debating just how this form of terrorism is facilitated by forest giants. Is it infrasound similar to what large heavy mammals possess? Is it a chemical reaction to some sort of spray or scent gland that is introduced into the atmosphere? I used to fall into the "infrasound" camp, but now I'm not so sure.
The dread response occasionally triggered by sasquatches turns on like a switchj
One thing is certain: the dread response is very real and it can be dangerous to people with heart conditions and other physical handicaps. I feel it can even be dangerous for healthy people that are exposed to the stimulae too often.
If your home borders a sasquatch "hot spot," and you are exposed to the dread response with some regularity, consider moving. It's a form of environmental pollution to be taken seriously--such as living too close to a power relay station or a microwave cell tower--and the health risks it poses are no joking matter. I offer the same advice to those who go "squatching" regularly. Please take care out there. Your long term physical and mental health might well depend upon your it.
