"Not necessarily, but for our own egocentric purposes it would have to be somewhat human-looking; otherwise we wouldn't take it seriously. And though it doesn't have to be human, it would have to be something that would communicate with humans -- a talking raccoon or a deer maybe, hopefully not during deer season.

That's what I envision: a spirit without form but communicating its powers intuitively."
