Having had paranormal experiences myself, and having heard many stories over the years from family members and people I trust completely, I am
convinced these things exist. With that said, when I was younger I saw a person that no one else could see, and I have heard similar things within my
own family with other small children. Plus this seems to be reported by people around the world. It is my opinion that children are more "in tune"
or apt to see things like this mainly because they have not been told these things do not exist. That is sort of a poor reason, but it may be part of
what is going on.
I am convinced however that it has something to do with the brain, obviously. I think that these events show that our brains are somehow connected to
some sort of spirit world, or afterlife, and only after we begin to grow up and our brain chemistry changes do we stop seeing these things. Well not
all children can see these things, but there are still many adults who can as well. Some people can even turn the ability on and off. And I would be
the first person to say that this is just the brain doing something wonky, but this is not the case when it is realized that often times the dead
people the children are seeing can be proven to have lived, and often times died tragically. I say tragically because that does seem to often times
have some bearing on whether a haunting occurs, although this is not necessarily the case.
Aside from seeing dead people, or spirits, it also seems that children have more of an ability to "feel" things. This can extend to just knowing
that something is going to happen to someone, or whatever. What I find the most fascinating about all of these things, aside from the fact that this
would prove an afterlife of some kind, is that physics has got a lot of explaining to do, since it cannot explain how people are connected in time and
space. Well it does offer an explanation, but this is obviously not correct, otherwise how would these things be possible? How would someone be able
to KNOW something is going to happen if the future has not been seen or played out already? It is not possible. There are many who would rather
dismiss these claims than attempt to rectify the situation by looking for a solution, and I can understand this to an extent, but seriously these
people lack trust in their fellow man.
With all of the accounts given over the years, do these people honestly think every single one of these people are lying or misinterpreting events? If
only ONE of those people was telling the truth the skeptic's argument falls apart. Plus there are other phenomena that defy physical explanation. Our
sciences really do not understand these things because they do not welcome them. They say they do not exist and do not happen, and then ignore them
altogether. I think part of this is because these things are difficult to study, but there are ways it could be done. Science has a bad track record
of correcting past mistakes. For instance, I believe our current system of understand quantum mechanics and Newtonian mechanics is wrong. What I mean
is that science missed something long ago. The sad part is that there are many people who published contrary ideas to what became the official stance
of science, but no one paid any attention to them. So the answers to many of the scientific questions that cannot be directly proven, but only proven
mathematically at this point, are likely to be found in decades old papers that were published and then forgotten.
