Marsh’s quest began while in his early 20s as a doctor traveling to Pakistan for “Doctors without Borders.”


He has studied the neuro-physiological impact of curses using FMRI and other cutting edge tools, slipping these studies in on regular research as well as buying time with the equipment using his own funds.


While in Pakistan, Marsh had an experience with a cursed individual that has forever changed his outlook on the subject and his approach to studying the human mind.


To date, his studies have been largely “underground,” as publishing his findings would have drawn scorn from the academic community. Now, for the first time, he wants to share his findings with the world.
