Ephemeral Uncertainty evokes the split second when rational thinking is challenged by a seemingly inexplicable occurrence of sensation, either visual or auditory. Such an occurrence can produce an uncanny effect, one which Freud describes as at once frightening, yet familiar. The ordinary or the known suddenly appears supernatural and inexplicable, a perception which is heightened when our own sense of mortality is invoked.
