Paranormal activities have been a mystery. And the resounding question that has been asked for years but never had a definitive answer is whether they are real? We ask that because we are intrigued and we want to pierce the veil into the unknown. We also ask because we are scared of that which we don’t understand. Nevertheless, it is difficult to come to a conclusion on whether the paranormal is evidence of the mystical realm or confusion of reality.
The scientific opinion
Over the years, the scientific interest in the paranormal has increased. Thanks to that, there has been plenty of research that has been done on the topic. However, even with the numerous YouTube videos of supposed evidence of the paranormal, science still holds that the paranormal is an abnormal psychological condition. There have been many names and conditions that have been used to describe the paranormal with one of the most popular being mass hysteria. However, is this really what the paranormal is or is there something more to it?
The unpopular opinion
There are thousands out there that believe in the paranormal for various reasons. Some claim that the have experienced it, others claim to be beneficiaries. Obviously, these are the people that are seen as outliers and are often considered “insane”. Nevertheless, they can also be seen as the dreamers and can be said to have a better hold of their imaginations than most. For such people, it is not so much about whether the paranormal is real, but rather how much of it they can experience. Put another way, it is not so much about whether ghosts are real, but rather the kinds of ghosts that exist.
What is real and what is fake?
My take on the paranormal is much like Schrödinger’s cat. It can be both real and fake for as long as you don’t experience or explain it. However, that explanation may not bode well with everyone. Does the sudden chill in your room on a hot summer evening mean nothing?
However, it is difficult to prove the existence of the paranormal, even with the numerous videos. The reason being that the paranormal world is an existence that exists between the mystical and reality. If I would be so daring, I’d say that it is not meant to be explored yet. Nevertheless, that doesn’t mean that exploring the paranormal is necessarily a good thing since we might find out that science was right all along. And who would want to live in a boring world where science is always right?
Daily, more and more people start to believe in paranormal things, but why? Stress make up more vulnerable, and it destroys our health and brain, and we become more scared of death than any other time of this world.
Another thing that makes people believing in paranormal is the TV and network because they make accessible this kind of stories and stuff and weak people tend to believe them.
But, what means paranormal? Paranormal are phenomena that can’t be explained by science. From 20th century scientist tried to explain this kind of things, and because of the technology many branched of science were able to explain some paranormal stuff.
Charles Fort that was born in the 19th century collected a lot of paranormal stories. He announced that he had more than 40,000 stories with paranormal experiences. His stories are about everything: teleportation, levitation, unidentified flying objects, noises, appearances and disappearances that cannot be explained. His stories appeared in newspapers, and very much people read them. So, even if in their time internet and TV didn’t exist, they have the possibility to make their stories popular.
There are novels based on paranormal stories, movies, series and also events.
A paranormal fest is an event where people that believe in paranormal stuff come to make new friends, to found new stories and to have fun.
They will participate in conferences where experienced people will speak: the ones who believe in paranormal and the ones who tries to prove that these facts have a scientific explanation.
Paranormal Fest is known in the entire world, and it has the different organisation in each country. If you want to go to an event like this, you have to dress suitable for the event, eventually, dress up in a ghost. People that believe in paranormal phenomena doesn’t have a healthy mind. Most of them suffer from schizophrenia, and that makes them believe all these scary facts.
People found in these stories a way to earn money, for example, the one who create the Paranormal Activity series or Paranormal Activity movies and they had a lot of success if we think what type of things these stories are.
Some people don’t believe in paranormal, but when they see a movie like that or when they hear some stories, will become scared and will start to seriously think of paranormal events.
You will find on the internet different events that are about paranormal phenomena, and you will find a lot of groups made from people that truly believe in these stories.
But, just for fun in some countries exists a Paranormal Fest for children and those that are under 10-12 years old have free entrance. Isn’t it weird? Well, it is, but just we said: people tries to make money from paranormal things and they got success with that.
