Basically, the Paranormal doesn’t exist but wait! If this is undoubtedly true, then history doesn’t exist either. The reason for this hypothesis is that history can only be believed through the practice of documentation or word-of-mouth. Yes, events in history have left clues, like artifacts, but others have no trail of evidence whatsoever. This is why the paranormal is likely to be just as real. Many scientists and atheists definitely believe in historical events, and they will stand firm in their beliefs. Basically, the paranormal can have just as much right of existence as history.

So, are spirits scientifically possible? Since the paranormal is pretty much impossible to prove, just like history, then substantial evidence is the only way to understand spirits. There is, however, a scientific reason that leaves doubt in the minds of skeptics. There may, in fact, be signs of the afterlife within the confines of the science lab. This information draws attention to the likelihood of the existence of ghosts. These clues are not pictures, recordings or sightings. The laboratory holds evidence that carries a bit more weight in theory. Yes, the paranormal could exist, and there are solid reasons to this idea.


Most people, who know anything at all about ghosts, will attest to the role of energy in the afterlife. Considering the body works by energy, traveling down your spine through the nervous system and moving throughout the brain, it can never truly be destroyed, only changed. The body does, in fact, decompose, but that only means it transfers into another form. The body transforms, passes away into the earth bonding with surrounding physical structures and animals. With this being said, where does the life-giving energy go when the vessel is destroyed?

According to the law of physics, yes a law and not a theory, energy never dies. Some say that the energy within the brain is the vehicle of our personalities. If this is the case, then energy must travel to another place, and like the body, change into another composition. Sometimes this energy will hover around the area, still filled with thoughts of the dead.

Contacting renegade energy

If energy cannot be destroyed, and by fact, it cannot, then energy can become something different. If thoughts, feelings and personalities of the dead are forms of energy, then these same attributes of the living can connect with the dead. Maybe, in fact, this is the reason why ghosts can be seen and heard by the living. If energy doesn’t know where to go, after the death of the body, then it can travel around the area that is familiar to it, thus haunting the living. Sometimes, ghosts will stay within the home they once lived, even if it is empty. Yes, energy, if indeed found as thoughts and emotions, can very likely be attached to a dwelling or a living person. Our energy and the energy of the dead is much the same. The only difference is the living have a shell called the body. Since the living function by energy, then contacting the dead, if they are only energy as we speculate, can easily be done.

Doubt and Belief

If you ask most scientists about the paranormal, they will say it does not exist. Over time, some of the skeptics in the field of science have started to change their minds. If ghosts are in the laboratory, then obviously there is doubt to this theory. As more and more witnesses confess about their sightings and encounters with the dead, it stands to reason that the paranormal, most likely in the case of the phantom, does, in fact, exist.

    Let us pretend we are scientists actively teaching future scientists. What is our primary objective?

    Most scientists would say our objective is to help students remain focused on activities which have the greatest probability of compounded success.

    It sounds like wonderful fun to grab a camera and rush off to study Pink Flying Elephants (PFE’s)in their native habitat. If you ask around you may find people who say they have seen this species. Ask more questions and you may notice that these observers seem to disagree on the colors of the polkadot tutus historically worn by this species.

    As educators, it is our job to tell our students to wait until someone, somewhere, has written down the precise directions on where to go, when, and what to take with you, to see PFE’s. Then when you follow these exact instructions you will, either see some PFE’s, which is great, or you will demonstrate that the other author printed bullshit, which is also great information.

    Reproducible observations are a wonderful idea because they keep us all focused on what is quickly and easily doable. They help us be productive. They help us ask the best questions. They help us to improve these same observations, and understand their causes.

    When we get old, reproducible observations allow us to look back at our lives and say, “I am so glad I didn’t run off looking for Pink Flying Elephants”.

      Yes, we should definitely teach future scientists to focus on objectives that are “realistic”, especially those which are so close to becoming facts with substantiating proof. YEs! I agree here with this. But! and that’s a big But indeed. I do think we have time to poke around the things that have a lesser probability of being true.

      And the truth is, there will always be discrepancies about the details of ghosts and other supernatural beings. This is simply because, there are many different types of ghosts, spectres, phantoms etc.

      Allow me to examine your sentence here,

      “As educators, it is our job to tell our students to wait until someone, somewhere, has written down the precise directions on where to go, when, and what to take with you, to see PFE’s. Then when you follow these exact instructions you will, either see some PFE’s, which is great, or you will demonstrate that the other author printed bullshit, which is also great information.”

      Okay, first off, have you ever been fishing? I have many times. Once someone told me to go to a small town, name unimportant, and I would find a lake filled with fish. I didn’t have to ask them if they were lying or seeing things, oh no. There were fish in that lake and many of them. When I went, however, I saw nothing. I didn’t even see one fish, and if I didn’t know any better, and had never seen a fish before, I would have supposed that they were not real and only a fabrication of my friend’s mind. hmmm I know it’s a long shot, but it’ba basically the same principles.

      Now, on the other hand, I would probably have eventually witnessed fish swimming around If I had returned to the lake a few times. It’s even possible that it would have taken me several times if I was just at the wrong place at the wrong time or whatever. So, suppose ghost hunters have to revisit sites until they witness something. Also, suppose they tell others who have trouble witnessing things at first. Suppose we have hilarious ghosts who love to see us question each other. By the way, I do find ghosts rather comedic.

      So, while many of us are glad that we didn’t run off looking for “pink elephants”, there are others of us who are quite happy that we did. So, just saying…

    Every second of every life is governed by a scientific algorithm which I call as absolute reality. This algorithm is the reason for everything to be the way it is in our World. This algorithm creates within it subsets which is experienced by people as multiple world eg Heaven, Hell, Human World. Also Vampire, Werewolf, Astrology, black magic, etc etc. This is out of my scientific work in this field.

      Wow, this is an interesting perspective on life works. In ways, it is far removed from spiritual aspects, but in other ways, it runs parallel with such beliefs. I find it also interesting that you included beings such as vampire, werewolves and the like. Thank you for this out-of-the-box and eye-opening theory.
