Paranormal Phenomenon
Paranormal Phenomenon are occurances that are physically impossible given our current scientific knowledge. The word paranormal itself is an overall term for such things as telepathy, (extra sensory perception (ESP), reincarnation, psychokinesis, UFO’s and ghosts and haunting as well as other non physical subjects.

Paranormal phenomenon is a controversial subject simply because these phenomena exist outside of the normal physical realm, many people believe in them but there are just as many skeptics that will say there is no such thing.

Since it is human nature to always want an explanation for everything, there have been many studies done on the paranormal through the field of parapsychology. Since the 1930’s experiments on ESP using cards and dice, there have been numerous organizations formed towards the advancement of parapsychological research. Research really blossomed in the 1970’s but has scaled back a bit today.

Although paranormal phenomenon cannot be scientifically proven, polls show that 50 percent of Americans believe in it. Yet, there is still a propensity for many to talk about the paranormal in a negative way. While most of us want to believe that prayer can make you well and that your deceased loved ones are living happily as spirits on the “other side” guiding you in your life, no one really wants to talk too much about it!

But seeing ghosts and other paranormal activity is not new, in fact the Romain Philospher Pliny reported ghostly sightings as far back as 83 AD. Even Thomas Edison believed in life after death and one of his last inventions, a secret project, was an a machine that would help the living communicate with their dead loved ones, ironically he died before he could finish it!

Today paranormal phenomenon is still researched and there are many independent groups that go out to prove the existence of ghosts using tools no more unusual than cameras, audio recorders, video recorders, Electro-Magnetic Field Detectors, flashlights, thermometers and a compass.
