What, is that supposed to be a real photograph of an apparition? It looks like an image of a plastic statue, superimposed on the photograph.

And I suppose you think these paper cutouts aren't real fairies and that many, many people, including Arthur Conan-Doyle--were just seeing what they wanted to see and believing what they wanted to believe... ("Elsie and Frances" Hoax)

Interesting link. As to how Doyle could have created the brilliant Holmes, when his mentality was obviously closer to that of Watson, I can suggest one possibility: In order to depict Holmes, he channeled the spirit of a far superior intellect.
