Xtranormal: What Does it Mean?

I find Xtranormal fascinating.  It occurred to me that the power to set up fantasy conversations says something about humanity.  I’m not sure yet what that is, but there seems to be something psychologically powerful about the way that Xtranormal allows people to express their opinion through a hypothetical conversation between two authority figures (like, say, GENs McCrystal and Petraeus) with one side debunking the other’s points or through a reasonable everyman’s humorous critique of a political caricature (as in the Tea Party video).  When else would one get the chance to have such a conversation or illuminate their point in such a way?  What does it say about us that we have taken so quickly to using Xtranormal in this way?
