Nexus Points (Ley Lines)

Nexus points are most often discussed in conjunction with Ley Lines. Ley Lines are said to be invisible lines across the surface of the Earth which possess or enhance magical or paranormal properties at their intersecting points. While much has been made of them in certain circles and amongst certain enthusiasts, nothing conclusive has come to light.

While there are some interesting coincidences as to how certain landmarks and features seem to line-up (particularly in Europe), my personal theory is that this was a practical matter for ancient peoples who used these landmarks as exactly that: travel guides, later (and once upon a time) connected by roads. Of course, they may very well have felt that there were some mystical properties to these features and/or the way they lined-up, but we may never know.

I generally tend to discount anything having to do with Ley Lines.

On quite the other hand, I believe there is some kind of evidence for "nexus points" -- places, locations, and areas which, for whatever reason, lay at the center of, or form a bridge between, our corporeal world (the Prime Material Plane, in many cases) and The Other Side (Spirit World, Dead World, even sometimes the Astral Plane -- though this latter term is incorrectly used). In particular, there are places, such as the Borley Rectory, which do not seem to fit into any preconceived notions of your typical haunted house.

We've all heard the concepts of how, if a house is built on consecrated, holy, or "haunted" land, the structure itself will play host to the spirits there. True to form, when the Borley Rectory was destroyed, the remains of a young woman were reportedly found buried beneath the basement.

But there is a question as to "Veridical Imagery," or "Afterimage" -- a term with which even experienced investigators might not be aware, though they all know the concept: Great distress, pain, or emotional hardship can leave what is basically an emotional photograph on an area that becomes visible or active (as emotional motion pictures) at times and/or to different people (often called "Sensitives," "psychics," or "mediums").
