>>>Question therefore should be WHAT fortifies this wall of denial?
XXX I should think various factors would collaborate here. For a person with vested interest, it would be in his own interest to subscribe to the view. But for the otherwise well meaning people, there would be many factors, but predominantly his world-outlook that explains things to him. Anything not falling within the matrix would not be acceptable for quite a while, unless something really shakes him up. Suppose someone says that ghosts do exist. I may listen to him to humor him, but it would really take "something" to change my views on ghosts especially so late in my life :-)
