  • The argument that temporal lobe epilepsy is the cause of hallucinations mistakenly viewed as paranormal, is not a new one having being announced and concluded a great many times over the last decade, closing the book on ghostly apparitions, UFO s and their abductees, Near-Death and Out-of- body experiences dismissed as quirks in neurology producing mere fantasy.
