Signs and superstitions: why can not photograph sleeping people?
Why can not photograph sleeping people? To be honest, I didn't even know that. As soon as I was enlightened about this, I immediately shoved my curious nose into the relevant sections of the occult books. Something I found there, and I hasten to share this with you!
Do not click in vain!
- Ancient legends say that people personified the state of human sleep with mystical vulnerability. They believed that when they sleep, they become more vulnerable to otherworldly forces. In particular, it was believed that our spirit leaves our flesh at the time of sleep. If at this moment photographing sleeping people means capturing their "lifeless" bodies (without a soul) ... By the way, drawing a portrait of a sleeper also did not promise anything good!
- Another explanation why it is impossible to photograph sleeping, says that in the XIX century there appeared a European tradition to intentionally capture the dead.At first they were dressed in new clothes, making them not like the deceased, and then, as if nothing had happened, they were filmed in their familiar home environment. It was a kind of consolation for their relatives. Hence the ban on such photographs, so as not to draw associative parallels with the departed.
What will happen?
Both of these signs have already become obsolete and are not taken as seriously as the following, which I heard from a friend. So, what will happen if you photograph people who are sleeping:
- this is at least unethical;
- the person will not sleep enough;
- it is easiest to impair a “sleeping” photo or to jinx a person with it;
- there is a risk of frightening the guardian angel who belongs to the sleeper and can just leave him forever;
- in some religions, photographs and images of a sleeping person are simply prohibited.
- As I said, the spirit of the sleeper flies out of the flesh until it wakes up. The soul travels in new dimensions, returning to the body upon its awakening. If you suddenly wake a person up with shutter clicks and a flash, then she simply may not have time to return, hence the death of the body (that is, sudden death).
- The energy of a person who is in a dream is very similar to the biofield of the deceased. It is logical to assume that photographing at this moment to some extent asserts this state in real life. As a result, your subject for shooting can get very sick and even die suddenly.
- I found another mystical reason why you can not photograph sleeping people. She is a variation of the previous one. The fact is that in the photo the face of the sleeper resembles the face of the deceased (eyes closed, lack of facial expression). This is food for an unintended eye. In other words, such pictures can send different diseases to a person.
Modern scientists (in particular, psychologists) more rationally explain why it is impossible to photograph sleeping. The fact is that the camera, as we know, has a bright flash and a characteristic shutter sound. This has the following consequences:
- first, you can wake a person from whom you will know where you should go;
- secondly, you just scare him! This will adversely affect the cardiovascular system, in addition, you can make it stutter;
- thirdly, you are violating the law on the right of a person to his private life.He can sue you.
