There is an area where one can almost believe the above, and that's where you're working on something, say a lawnmower, and you walk away from it for a minute or so and when you come back a nut or bolt or wrench has vanished into thin air, and you begin to believe that there are creatures in a higher dimension who are out to torture you.
