Legend-Tripping Online

University Press of Mississippi

A legend-trip culminates in contact with the supernatural. In the case of the Incunabula Papers, this contact occurs when participants perform the belief, or literally believe, that the documents have some supernatural or initiatory quality and when they start to interpret events or perceptions as supranormal. Personal experience reports offer a glimpse into what happens during this stage. This chapter examines supernatural experiences that reportedly arise from legend-tripping by locating personal experiences within the domain of the creative imagination. It also considers how dreams and dreaming are linked to supernatural experiences and how experiences occurring within the province of sleep are tied to supernatural legends.
