|Is it us or are there hotspots for paranormal activity?|
I guess it's a mixture of the two.
For a lot of years I wondered if believing that ghosts and other things that go bump in the night exist made me a good candidate for the loony bin. I mean, more that being a writer does (everyone knows that to be a writer you need to be 1-a bit schizophrenic; 2- a glutton for punishment; 3- 1+2= you're a bit nuts! ). Anyway, add to that the belief that paranormal exists and some more esoteric and eccentric beliefs about how the world really works and I've got on my hands a real explosive combo. I guess the majority of people having different from the norm beliefs know to keep their mouth shut. Mmm, I never learned that skill. I'm glad too, because while I get some weird looks thrown my way when I open my mouth, I noticed something else. There are a lot of us, believers, out there. Most of us either have interesting stories to tell or just are open minded and really logical about it. So, not a delusion if science can be called into it?
To judge that, let start with a interesting definition :
Adj. 1. paranormal - seemingly outside normal sensory channels
paranormal - not in accordance with scientific laws; "what seemed to be paranormal manifestations"
2. paranormal - not in accordance with scientific laws; "what seemed to be paranormal manifestations"
unnatural - not in accordance with or determined by nature; contrary to nature;"
extrasensory, paranormal - seemingly outside normal sensory channels
normal - in accordance with scientific laws
