The Watcher of Corroboree Rock- Paranormal Photos - Corroboree rock is an unusual rock formation found approximately 50km east of Alice Springs, Northern Territory, Australia. The rock itself is a dolomite outcropping, which holds great significance to the Arrernte Aboriginal people. Although the cultural significance is a tightly held secret of the lands senior male traditional owners, it is known that the area was considered spiritually dangerous for Aboriginal women, children and uninitiated men. It is also considered taboo to climb the rock itself. In 1959 (sometimes noted as 1956), Adelaide Presbyterian minister R.S. Blance was visiting the sacred site when he took a photo of the seemingly empty scene. When the photo was developed, he was shocked to find the image of a person standing amongst the scrub, surrounding the open clearing. People see different things in this photo. An aboriginal woman in traditional clothing, a woman wearing night dress and cap and some people have described it as looking like a ancient south American priest. What do you see?

There’s a Paranormal Activity Lab at University of Virginia

The market for stories of paranormal academe is a rich one. There’s Heidi Julavits’s widely acclaimed 2012 novel The Vanishers, which takes place at a New England college for aspiring Sylvia Brownes. And, of course, there’s Professor X’s School for Gifted Youngsters—Marvel’s take on Andover or Choate—where teachers read minds and students pass like ghosts through ivy-covered walls.
The Division of Perceptual Studies (DOPS) at the University of Virginia’s School of Medicine is decidedly less fantastic than either Julavits’s or Marvel’s creations, but it’s nevertheless a fascinating place. Founded in 1967 by Dr. Ian Stevenson—originally as the Division of Personality Studies—its mission is “the scientific empirical investigation of phenomena that suggest that currently accepted scientific assumptions and theories about the nature of mind or consciousness, and its relation to matter, may be incomplete.”
