Paranormal events are purported phenomena described in ancient books and culture as other non-scientific bodies of knowledge, whose existence within these contexts is described as beyond the scope of normal scientific understanding. paranormal beliefs include those that pertain to extrasensory perception like telepathy, spiritualism and the pseudosciences of ghost hunting, cryptozoology, and ufology.
The paranormal can best be thought of as a subset of pseudoscience. What sets the paranormal apart from other pseudosciences is a reliance on explanations for alleged phenomena that are well outside the bounds of established science. Thus, paranormal phenomena include extrasensory perception (ESP), telekinesis, ghosts, poltergeists, life after death, reincarnation, faith healing, human auras, and so forth. The explanations for these allied phenomena are phrased in vague terms of "psychic forces", "human energy fields", and so on. This is in contrast to many pseudoscientific explanations for other nonparanormal phenomena, which, although very bad science, are still couched in acceptable scientific terms.
Ghost hunting is also a part of paranormal activities.
Ghost hunting is the investigation of locations that are reportedly haunted by ghosts. Typically, a ghost-hunting team will attempt to collect evidence supporting the existence of paranormal activity.
In traditional ghostlore, and fiction featuring ghosts, a ghost is a manifestation of the spirit or soul of a person.Alternative theories expand on that idea and include belief in the ghosts of deceased animals. Sometimes the term "ghost" is used synonymously with any spirit or demon; however, in popular usage the term typically refers to the spirit of a deceased person.
The belief in ghosts as souls of the departed is closely tied to the concept of animism, an ancient belief that attributed souls to everything in nature.As the 19th-century anthropologist George Frazer explained in his classic work, The Golden Bough (1890), souls were seen as the 'creature within' which animated the body.Although the human soul was sometimes symbolically or literally depicted in ancient cultures as a bird or other animal, it was widely held that the soul was an exact reproduction of the body in every feature, even down to the clothing worn by the person. This is depicted in artwork from various ancient cultures, including such works as the ancient indian Vedic and Egyptian Book of the Dead which shows deceased people in the afterlife appearing much as they did before death.including the style of dress.(according to Egyptian theory of after death life.)
Sometimes an individual or a residence or any object and place can get possessed by some unsatisfied soul or who wants to be in earth with their own past belongings very much. paranormal activities can ruin life of people. Para psychologist mostly get the supernatural power from nature to become a medium and a projector and receiver and can be connected with the spirit of other world and also can make them understand that this earth is not their home anymore.
