ghost photoI already know that ghosts are scientifically not proven to exist, but there’s been millions of stories about encounters with beings of the third dimension. I believe ghosts are real because of the way people say things like, “my dead mother visited me last night.” I believe they exist because I have always felt as though something was with me in certain moments. For example a friend who unexpectedly passed away visits me when I’m playing soccer. I think that if a spirit hasn’t accomplished their purpose in life by the time they pass away, they don’t go on to heaven and stay until they consider the job done.

Do other people feel the same way as I do? I know lots of people who do, but they’re apart of my community. I want to know if there’s a common belief that ghosts exist on a global scale. I also want to know if it could be related to extraterrestrials, because there are also many accounts of an otherworldly being.


Live Science – Are Ghosts Real?

“2013 Harris Poll found that 43 percent of Americans believe in ghosts.”

“Ghost experiencers, “did not see something that approximated the conventional image of a ‘ghost.’ Instead, many of [the] respondents were simply convinced that they had experienced something uncanny — something inexplicable, extraordinary, mysterious, or eerie.”

“Albert Einstein suggested a scientific basis for the reality of ghosts, based on the First Law of Thermodynamics: if energy cannot be created or destroyed but only change form, so what happens to our body’s energy when we die?”


UFOs, Cryptids & Ghosts: Branches of the Same Tree?

“Trans-personal psychology and theoretical physics, most of today’s experts are still married to the same assumptions in their respective fields.” 

“Quantum mechanics all pointed to a single explanation: multiple parallel worlds, an open system with relatively free exchanges of energy and, at times, inhabitants.”

“‘Ghosts’ weren’t dead people but actual people living in parallel worlds that happened to intersect ours at certain times, places and states.”

After research, I’ve concluded that ghosts are in fact real, but only if you choose to believe so. Since there is no physical proof that ghosts or aliens exist, we can not scientifically prove anything about them. But, by using logical thinking, it gives us strong “hopes” that they do in fact exist. They may not exist in the traditional view of them being a white mystifying being, but maybe they’re an exchange of energy between particles that exist in different parallel universes. Many people who have lost loved ones swear on the presence of that loved one as a “ghost” or being. I like to think that ghosts are real, because then maybe I won’t be as scared of them.

Rachel, This has always crossed my mind and I do believe ghost are real. Though I have never seen one with my own eyes I do watch Ghost Adventures. They gather a lot of evidence that prove ghost are real ,which makes me believe even more. There are many things that have to do with ghost that just can’t be debunked or explained. Rachel, Do you ever get scared when seeing a ghost?

Dear Rachel,
I was bored and typed in stories about ghost and although your title is very basic your story is very interesting.I too believe in ghost the same reason you do basically,just from all the stories i’ve heard.I always watch tv shows about ghost and things like that and people who can talk to ghost(medians) are mad dope.

I love that you put quotes into your story as well its makes me more intrigued because now it’s your opinion but also you have facts too.For example this quote you put is my favorite,”Albert Einstein suggested a scientific basis for the reality of ghosts, based on the First Law of Thermodynamics: if energy cannot be created or destroyed but only change form, so what happens to our body’s energy when we die?”That quote really makes you think,at least me.I personally would be scared if i had an actual encounter with a ghost but it would be a dope experience if the spirit was a good one.

Rachel, I think about this question all the time. I have never experienced anything with the paranormal, but I watch tv shows about peoples experiences. Also my aunt has weird experinces and she says its from the supernatural. How often do you experince paranormal activity alot? I found this website by a paranormal investigator. This article talks about theories on time dimensions. Hope this helps! (Article:
