[QUOTE=return_to_hades] Well, there is always a rational explanation. Paranormal activity is basically activity that is currently beyond scientific scope. Eerie, bizarre, inexplicable, absurd, irrational - occurrences that make no logical sense. The only thing is we have not found plausible or logical explanations yet.
One of the primary reason why such occurring remain 'unexplained', 'unsolved', or 'unanswered' is because most of the time such incidences go unnoticed by the masses and unchecked by scientific methodology. Agreed with the underlined statement - currently unexplained, but not necessarily unexplainable.

This is based on my own experience from people I've known, that a particular section of people simply love and adore mysteries. More than the happening, they love the smoke that surrounds it. This is why they don't want such occurrences to go under routinely scientific examinations or known by the public. They simply love the mystery for mystery's sake. LOL

Definitely mysteries can be fun. That is why ghost stories and paranormal stuff is so popular - people enjoy that eerie creepy feeling of it. As kids it was cool and fun to do stuff like Ouija boards - go somewhere haunted. My dad would get very angry if he found out we had done Ouija, he thought it inauspicious.

Anyway, there is still that group of scientists who study paranormal scientifically to find explanations or debunk myths. James Randi is one of the most prominent such scientists He has been very harsh on some people who claim supernatural skills.

Are you sure about that?
Or so I am told. In his mind I am sure he believed that. God knows what he saw and hunted. LOL

I did Ouija (or planchit) as we called it a whole bunch of times with friends as a teen. It was usually during camps or something where we would do it in the dead of the night. It always had the creepy airy feeling to it. However, I was sure the coin movement was faked.


There was this one time when I was 13 or so when I had my finger on the coin. We decided to call some recent murder victim we saw in the papers. I would swear to you that the coin really moved on its own. Bizarre things happened to me over the next two years. Things going missing, things moved around. My lab journal went missing from my bag the day of submission. My mom said she had packed it in the night before so I don't forget and said I must have lost it in school. I lost my lucky pen. I started having recurring dreams of an island in the sea, and about a bizarre cult of Ram worshippers on the island – bizarre because Ram has never really been associated with occult. It was not scary really – just bizarre that something was with me always messing things up for me for the next few years. I'd feel a presence randomly with me – even in broad daylight. It was not all the time – just every now and then.


Then one day during a tenth standard school trip, I saw the island of my recurring dreams. I never went to the island – just saw it from the shore. When I saw it my jaw dropped and I stood staring for a few minutes. But since that day bizarre things stopped. I have never had that recurring dream ever since. Even though I have tried to think of it before going to bed to recreate it.


On the day of SSC results we were sitting in a classroom waiting for teacher to come and hand out our official mark sheets. One of the kids started going through the teachers cupboard there. She found my lost lab journal and bizarrely a compass box I had lost way back when I was in third standard – I had scratched my name on it – and my lucky pen was in there.


It sounds far-fetched but its true. As a teen I found it freaky. However now, the skeptic in me refuses to believe that its paranormal. I think I was a nave idiot. I am pretty sure there is a rational explanation through coincidence and subliminal psychology.
