A supernatural event mentioned by Dr. Richard Strand at a gathering of The Institute of Paranormal Research in Saint Louis four years prior to episode 101. Strand describes it as an experiment that neither proves or disproves the validity of a unreferenced phenomenon, likely related to life after death. The experiment includes a number of witnesses and their claims. When challenged, Strand denies that the burden of proof is on him to disprove the experiment but rather on his colleagues to effectively prove that life exists after death. He refers to their attempt at proof as "bad science". He also refers to belief in the afterlife as similar to drug addiction, as a form of escape for the "addict".
