        Yes, my wife and I both have.  We have also both had other interesting paranormal experiences both together and apart.  We both believe.  There ar too many variables when it comes to the natural world and the science of the nature of energies not to believe.

      Those who believe in such things usually have no understanding of why those things can't exist. They just believe they do exist because they want to believe they exist.  smile

      I've had many paranormal experiences.
      The ONLY BAD ONE I've had was with the only Shadow person I've ever seen.

      These are not tricks of the mind. I not only see, but also interact with these entities.

      There are even Ghosts in scripture

                    Duality would be a single entity that exhibits two different characteristics.

                    For example, photons have a duality of being a wave and a particle, depending on what reference frame is applied. If a photon is traveling, it is observed as a wave while on the other hand when the photon comes to rest and is absorbed, it is observed as a particle.

      Yes. I was living in Wyoming at the time and very young. I wanted to sneak upstairs to get some candy late at night.

      I saw them to my right before I went up the stairs. He was 'swimming' in the air and I told him he was scaring me and I wanted him to leave. He just sat there swaying in the middle of the living room. I froze, I was too scared to go up stairs or go back to my room. I backed up until I was on my couch and I put my head in between the cushions the rest of the night.

      I was probably 6-7 at the time and remember it vividly.

      My wife always knew the man in the 'tophat' lived in her closet. Both her and her siblings grew up knowing the 'tophat' man and he had red eyes.

      Yup.

    I personally have never seen a Shadow Person, at least not in memory. But I do believe that they exist. There are far too many strange occurrences that happen in our world for us to easily discount their existence. I would caution anyone who spots them, however, as most sources point them as being, if not malicious, then malignant. Also, I've heard that they are very common in graveyards.

      It's safer to make a joke about it.

      ...It makes it that much more unreal and becomes something to laugh off, instead of take seriously. Which could be a good thing. "What you don't know can't hurt you" as the old saying goes.

    It is willful ignorance to conclude that any sensation you cannot explain is a shadow person, ghost, demon, etc.

    Is science to be totally disregarded?

    I have had many "paranormal" experiences, but the first thing I do is to try to find a scientific explanation.

    And usually I have to conclude that there was some type of chemical imbalance in my body at the time--such as in Incubus nightmares.  A chemical imbalance is the only thing that makes sense.

      One time I accidentally made someone think I was a ghost. It was at a historic site, and I was in period clothing, and it was early in the morning. I came around the corner of the building, and there she was. I said, "Good morning," and she screamed blue murder and jumped about three feet back.

      Then she realized that I was a reenactor.

      I had to explain the blood curdling scream to the other reenactors when I got back to the guardhouse.

      In 1850, the German physiologist Johannes Muller stated that science would never discover the speed of the nervous impulse;  two years later Hermann von Helmholtz did.

      When Ernest Rutherford, the physicist who split the atom, was an undergraduate, his tutor told him not to bother taking up physics because scientists had a complete picture of the nature of matter and only the final details remained to be settled! 

      It is interesting to speculate on the consequences for science if Rutherford had accepted that advice.

      Examples of imperfections and about-turns in science could be multiplied over and over again.

      Quantum theory (in particular the uncertainty principle) seems to confirm that human knowledge must always be imperfect.

      This means that not only is our present scientific knowledge incomplete, but also that we are incapable of ever fully understanding the universe.

      1. Beelzedad profile image56
        Beelzedadposted 7 years agoin reply to this

        Quantum field theory does not in any way confirm, deny or even suggest that human knowledge must always be imperfect, nor does it lead us to conclude we are incapable of understanding the universe. It describes matter and energy on atomic and subatomic scales and their relationships to one another. smile

          luvpassionposted 7 years agoin reply to this

          So you reject Heisenberg's formulation,(one of the most eminent laws of quantum theory,) the Uncertainty Principle, which is occasionally also referred to as the principle of indeterminacy?

          The notion that science is a dynamic and powerful tool for investigating the Universe is not wrong, but like all human enterprises science is capable of many mistakes and biases which may persist for lengthy periods of time. 

          In particular, science does not deal well with genuine anomalies that challenge established views.

              Sorry I wasn't debating quantum theory as I don't understand it myself, only saying that there are scientist who don't always agree on what is and what isn't.

              Just like in any other scientific discipline, those involved in paranormal research try to keep an open mind to all sorts of possibilities, or even none at all. 

              A slight bias towards skepticism or belief would prove to be a hindrance in their investigation.

                    I think the point is that it does not deserve any attention at all. Paranormal "researchers" are not really researchers. If they were, they would have researched the fact that ghosts and goblins can't exist, no matter how much they want them to exist. smile

                  This unfortunate mindset is often presented as 'skepticism'. 

                  It is anything but. 

                  Skepticism is the attitude of the researcher who, faced with an anomaly (such as ESP appears to be), says: "Well, what's going on here?  Let's take a look at it!" 

                  It is not the attitude of the armchair critic who simply 'knows' it's all nonsense and can't be bothered to address the evidence offered to him.

                  In other words its okay to be skeptical, but dismissing something outright even though thousands of people have reported experiences is not scientific.

                    The concepts of the paranormal (let's use your example of ESP) have been presented to scientists who will look at it and say: "Well, that violates a number of physical laws, it has no evidence whatsoever to support it other than the claims of believers. It is dismissed until believers can explain the violation of physics as well as producing some evidence. Until then, why should anyone look at it?"



                    What evidence?



                    No, what is not scientific is chasing around claims of experiences with not a shred of evidence to support them.

                    Scientists are far to busy observing reality, which does not appear to be just based on empty claims and spurious experiences. smile

    The thing about the consciousness is that plays tricks on the senses. If you see something that's not there, it is actually your consciousness representing something it has sensed to be present that is like a person. But it is not a person. It is just like it. Your mind sensed a presence, an intelligent presence that it cannot really see.

    Was it present in the mind alone or out there in that space you saw it.

    More that the Uncertainty Principle. The Study of Ghosts and Demons and such things should begin by studying human consciousness.

    we construct reality with what we know.

    As much as I respect the process of science, I have an equal, if not greater, respect for the paranormal. There are many inexplicable things in the universe, many things that at our current level, we have no hope of understanding, breaking down, studying. It is never wise to dismiss something out of hand because you don't understand it.

    And to those people who claim that the metaphysical is not real because it cannot be proven, I offer this comment: Lack of evidence does not prove non-existence.

    On a more personal note, if you don't believe in these things, why are you reading posts in the Paranormal Beliefs forum?

    I'm drug free, mentally sane, and not a holy roller but i've seen shadow people and other ghostly haunts in my home and in every day place. It's hard to deny something when it's staring you in the face or touching you when you least expect it. Those of you who haven't experienced ghostly encounters are probably so closed minded you'd even deny the existence of farts.
