What Constitutes Paranormal Activity?

You are probably seeing shows on television claiming to show evidence of paranormal activity. There are many components of what paranormal activity actually represents. If someone is living in a house that purportedly has ghosts, ones that are able to move objects, visually appear, or make noises, these poltergeists are considered paranormal activity. If a person has claimed that they have been abducted by supernatural beings such as aliens into a spaceship where experiments are performed on them, this is another representation of things that fall into the category of being paranormal. In this article, we will address three of the top paranormal activities that occur on a regular basis, and though not having very much scientific proof of their existence, the sheer volume of these occurrences has made them very prominent in today’s modern day lore of what we call paranormal.

What Is Paranormal Activity?

By definition, the word of paranormal is representative of any type of activity that cannot be explained by modern science. If there is not an instrument that can measure something that is repeatable, it is not scientific, and cannot be explained. Most of these paranormal events are written off as the fanciful longings of people searching for something different in life. Unfortunately, for those that are not believers in the paranormal, too many prominent witnesses, and a huge body of evidence, clearly shows that much of what is called paranormal is simply a part of the normal world that cannot be measured by scientific equipment. This can include telekinesis, clairvoyance, and the ability to heal another person. Very famous people that have claimed to have paranormal powers such as Uri Geller, known for his ability to bend spoons on command, or the late Ingo Swann that was recruited by SRI back in the 70s to create the now defunct remote viewing program of the military was actually able to stop their nuclear accelerator with his mind. Of all of the paranormal events in the world, there are three that stand out.

Alien Abductions

This is a very controversial topic that was brought to the forefront at first through the Roswell crash in New Mexico in 1947. This was subsequently followed by many reports of UFOs flying overhead, some of which were seen over LA and also Washington DC. The term flying saucer was actually coined by the media when Kenneth Arnold saw what appeared to be “flying saucers” flying near Mount Rainier. Since that time the Betty and Barney Hill case, the prolific “Communion” book by Whitney Strieber, and the work of the late Dr. John Mack of Harvard University have made a very strong case for the existence of extraterrestrial life.


a-ghostThere are many different ghost stories that have been presented over the last several hundred years, some of which have been found in the writings and journal entries of pioneers in America, and all throughout Europe and Asia. The idea that loved ones have passed over to the other side, and can communicate with us, has been portrayed by very prominent psychics including Sylvia Browne, John Edward and Psychic Abigail. Famous hauntings have been made into memorable movies such as the Amityville horror that have received national attention. Many documentary type shows that going to haunted houses have shown a variety of objects moving, apparitions appearing, and physical scratches on it even the camera crew that have occurred as a result of these poltergeists. They seem to be very real, but in the absence of scientific documentation or instrumentation that can measure their existence, they remain more of an enigma than a real phenomena that can be measured. If you want to make up your mind, or if you suspect that your home is haunted by a demon, its best to ask a psychic medium about it.


The idea that a large 8 foot tall hairy apelike creature is parading around the forests of North America has been around since the times of the Native Americans. Many other oral traditions referred to these creatures as hairy men as wild men are more commonly Sasquatch. So much evidence has been presented in regard to their existence including thousands of plaster casts of varying sizes of footprints made by these creatures, many of which have the same indentations on their feet. Pictures have been shown, along with video including the famous Patterson-Gimlin film that has been analyzed by top professionals and shown to be absolutely authentic. Unfortunately, nobody has ever been found, and some witnesses actually have stated that these creatures can dematerialize at will. If they are paranormal creature, one that can move from one reality to the other, this would explain why bodies have never been found.

Although there are many other types of paranormal topics that have been bantered about for centuries, the topic of aliens, ghosts, and Bigfoot have dominated the minds of millions across the world, but despite all of the evidence that has been presented, they are still considered an anomaly, nothing more than a fanciful and unprovable paranormal activity.
