    Mystery and beliefs

    Its dubious reputation in the pasttimes the moon received due to some factors:

    • its shape and color is constantly changing;
    • on the surface of the Moon from time to time there are different spots;
    • its light changes the outlines of objects, which, naturally, seem more creepy.

    People understood that the sun shines and it's nice, light and warm, but why the moon shines at night was not clear to them, so they considered it a source of evil and black power. Wizards and witches of many nations used the night light actively, they filmed and imposed curses and spoils, guessed for the future, performed rituals of love-turns and so on. And ordinary people in every way hid from the moonlight, so that its light does not fall on their sleepers, they even tried not to go out on the street, especially on the full moon.

    Our ancestors believed that the light of the moon changes the world and badly damages health:

    • from the depths of reservoirs, mermaids come out to the surface;
    • in the forest are activated;
    • werewolves turn into animals in the moonlight;
    • The moon pushes people to show aggression and commit crazy acts.

    The traditional church also did not like the heavenly body, because it considered it the property of the forces of otherworlds, which together with light can penetrate into the human consciousness.

    Scientific rationale

    The modern man of the Moon is not afraid, because he knows well what the satellite is like, why it changes shape and color. By its influence, this heavenly body not only causes ebbs and tides, it can affect mental health, but it concerns people with a weak nervous system.

    People without any mental aberrations can safely enjoy the moon, but its transition to the full phase contributes to the overexcitement of the nervous system, which in turn can play a cruel joke on people who are prone to fits of hysteria, easily suggestable and weak psyche orexperience a lot of stress. Such figures among the entire population of the planet are approximately 25%.

    Scientists claim that moonlight really activates the simplest bacteria and viruses, multiplying, they can cause stomach diseases or food poisoning. During this period, doctors note frequent manifestations of side effects of drugs and reducing their impact on the human body. Hence the superstition that the moon contributes to disease.

    Sleepwalking - somnambulism is a disease that manifests itself in the unconscious waking of a person during a dreaming period. This ailment is not connected with the Moon in any way, since it can manifest at any time of the day. People who are especially sensitive to this disease are exposed. The brain of the patient does not rest as expected, when he sleeps. Such a person can walk around the room, dress and even say something, but if he is awakened he will not remember what is happening, as his consciousness was asleep at that moment.

    The light of the moon leads to madness

    The moon really has some influence on the person, and this is due to the gravitational forces that are present between it and the Earth. Usually the strange impact of the celestial body is felt by particularly sensitive individuals, easily excitable and nervous people. But this feeling does not depend on whether a person will look into the sky or not, everything else is self-suggestion against the background of bad thoughts.

    There is no logical evidence that the Moon can cause madness.
