David Avery is a psychiatrist from the city of Seattle, USA. One day a man came to him whose illness was very strange.
He was an engineer with whom David Avery had also met in 2005. He was a victim of strange thoughts. Sometimes he thought of happiness, sometimes he would go to the moon. The sleep of that engineer was also disturbed. He could never sleep through the night. And sometimes he used to sleep for twelve hours a day. Since that person was also an engineer, he used to keep an equal account of the ups and downs of his life.
When David Avery looked closely at that record, it was found that the engineer’s sleep and mood were directly related to the ups and downs in the ocean. He was being affected by the tides. When the tide came, he could not sleep at night.
At first, David Avery dismissed that person’s words. And saved his record.
Effect of the moon on human life
12 years later, the famous psychiatrist Thomas Wehr published a research paper about 17 such patients.
These people had such a disease, due to which they used to become victims of depression and sometimes overdose at regular intervals.
The cycle of their normal living and being victims of depression was found to be directly related to the increase and decrease of the moon. The man was greatly been influenced by the moon since ancient times.
In such a situation, if the behavior of some humans was being affected by this, then it was not a very surprising thing for psychologists.
The English word Lunacy means madness. It is derived from the Latin word lunatics, which means one who is attacked by the moon.
Because of the moon…
The Greek philosopher Aristotle and the Roman naturalist Pliny the Elder also believed that insanity and epileptic seizures were caused by the moon.
It was also believed that pregnant women often gave birth to babies on the full moon. However, no scientific records exist about this.
Research has also not been done on the fact that Poornamasi suffers more during the course of insanity in patients suffering from mental illness.
However, according to research, the number of crimes committed outside the homes increases on the full moon.
A lot of research has been done on the fact that the movement of the moon has an effect on sleep.
People take more time to sleep around the full moon, and they sleep less.
New moon night
However, sleep experts such as Wadys aw Vyazovsky of Oxford University do not believe these figures to be solid.
He believes that this requires long research. American psychiatrist William Wehr did research about this.
And he kept an eye on the behavior of the patients for a long time and found that their behavior is related to the rise and fall of the moon.
The moon has an effect on the earth in many ways. The biggest effect we see is in the form of moonlight.
Amavasya night is the darkest, while the full moon has bright moonlight. Apart from this, the tides in the sea also come according to the increase or decrease of the moon.
The tides come on the full moon, while the ebb comes on the new moon. Wehr also found that the number of seizures in his patients increased as the size of the moon increased.
The interesting thing is that the behavior of these patients also changes after 206 days. Because ‘Supermoon’ happens every 206 days.
Ann Wirz-Justice, an expert in the psychology department of the University of Basel in Switzerland, was also convinced of these figures.
But she failed to understand the reason behind it.
Ann Wirz-Justice believes that people do not sleep well on bright moonlit nights and become irritable.
The fluctuations of the Moon have a profound effect on our body’s biological clock and its 24-hour cycle is affected.
Many people can also suffer from depression due to lack of sleep.
Although Wehr believes that in today’s era, there is so much artificial light that it is not natural for moonlight to have a lot of effects.
