THE SPIRIT WATCHES

IN SMALL VILLAGES OF THAILAND, IT IS BELIEVED THAT THE SPIRIT
OF SOME NATIVE OF THAT TOWN WHO HAD DIED LONG AGO STILL WATCHES OVER
THE TOWN, PROTECTING IT FROM EVIL. THE SPIRIT OF THIS PERSON MAKES
HIMSELF KNOWN BY APPEARING TO A FEW OF THE VILLAGERS, PROVING HIS
AUTHENTICITY BY TELLING PEOPLE
THEIR LIFE HISTORY IN ITS ENTIRETY.
THIS HAS ACTUALLY HAPPENED IN MANY CASES, AND NO EXPLANATION
CAN BE GIVEN OF A NATURAL SORT.
