A quick explanation of paranormal:

I won't document the various theories I have relating to the so called paranormal in this post - that'll come later - but I just wanted to put a few things straight.

First off I'm not some mad wacko who believes in every latest craze going so horoscopes, healing crystals, reading tea leaves and various other things that I can't think of right now are definitely best left to old ladies with time on their hands... ;)

Secondly I would like to point out that I don't know the answers although I've got some theories on it all (surprise, surprise) which I'll share with you in future posts.

Thirdly, I'm not here to try to convince anyone of anything and I won't try to preach the word of the paranormal. Everyone is entitled to their own beliefs as long as they don't harm others...


Ok, so the big question - what is paranormal?

Simply put, paranormal is stuff that we can't yet
scientifically measure or understand the mechanisms for.


Now I'm sure you've heard physiatrists & psychologists especially on TV stating that paranormal is basically a fantasy by lonely people who let their imagination run away with them and non of this stuff can exist...?

In case there are any physiatrists & psychologists reading this who think this my one question would be - do you believe that everything in the universe is fully understood? If not, isn't it breaking the fundamental rules of scientific investigation to state that you know this is all wrong?

By the way, I'm not trying to tarnish all physiatrists & psychologists with this same brush, actually mainly the ones that appear on the TV. :)


Ok, so now we've speculated that eventually no doubt everything will be explained by scientific means and pulled certain physiatrists & psychologists down a peg in the process. PS: Don't get me started on US style therapists! ;-)


New addition - 14th Feb 04

Just watching The Sixth Sense and the following idea came to me. For hundreds of years people still believed the Earth was flat even though scientists could show it was round. The problem wasn't that the Earth suddenly became round, but simply that it didn't fit with their logic and therefore they didn't want to believe.

Same thing with the so called paranormal - a lot of people don't believe that theres nothing that they can't see therefore according to that logic it doesn't exist.


From here, you might want to read "What does Trev believe exists" which is a sort of followon section...


Back to mad theories....
