Meeting Sasquatches While Camping

Our Primal Need To Explain Wet Dreams May Have Started The Whole Idea of Ghosts.






An early hunter-gatherer (caveman) has left the safety of the cave.  He is in search of food, anything that him and his female counterpart and off-spring can eat, a bison, a dug up root, anything. While he is gone, a Saber Toothed Tiger crawls into the cave, attacks his wife and children, kills them, then eats most of her and the little children then leaves.


The young Caveman returns hungry and empty handed and finds what remains of his group—this was before they had a name for a family—a leg, a head, a toe here and there. He realizes she and the kids have been killed. He picks up a bone. Smells it, takes a taste, finishes pickin at the rest of the bones until he can't eat anymore. 



"Why waste all this good meat?" he says.


Hunting is hard work. Remember this is a time of no rights or wrongs and no language, just a few grunts and groans, emotions haven't evolved yet.


A few weeks later, one night in the cave he beds down alone and goes into a Deep sleep (REM). He has a lucid dream of that female he ate the other day. In this dream he has sex with her and ejaculates exactly where he wakes up. Now-a-days we have a name for it. It's called a Wet Dream (Nocturnal emission).



"Where is she hiding," he grunts the next time he's horny? 


Then he remembered eating her. He goes to bed and dreams about her again and wouldn't you know it, he has another Nocturnal emission.



"What the hell," he says, when he wakes, "where is she?" 


He's left baffled. She's nowhere to be seen.

Years pass and it happens again, exactly as it did years before. He has a wet dream and wakes but she has disappeared.


I'm sure this scenario has been carried out countless times throughout the early beginnings of man. What must they have thought?  


There might have been a primal need for us to explain Wet Dreams. It may have started the whole idea of ghosts.
