Scientists Create ‘Ghosts’ in a Laboratory

E.S.P, Ghosts, Paranormal, Science

A 2005 Gallup poll found that 37 percent of Americans believe in haunted houses — and nearly half believe in ghosts. Believers in paranormal activity–especially those who believe they have been personally contacted by ghosts–frequently report a series of specific feelings that accompany the experience. The most common feeling on this list is the overwhelming […]

Wolfgang Pauli and the “Macro-Psychokinetic” Phenomenon

E.S.P

Excerpted from Jake Anderson’s article on Oddee.com Wolfgang Pauli was a theoretical physicist and an early pioneer in quantum mechanics. He was also an adherent to Jung’s concept of synchronicity. Pauli became the namesake behind an eerie phenomenon called the “Pauli effect,” which supposed that humans could disrupt electronics through some kind of “macro-psychokinetic” phenomena. […]

Old Mysterious Photos of Shamans, Mystics and Medicine Men

E.S.P

Throughout prehistoric times and even in some of today’s remote tribal cultures, shamans and ‘medicine men’ have sought to uncover the mysteries of consciousness and the universe. They did so by appealing to spirits in a practice called animism. In many languages, the word for spirit is the same word used for breath. The shaman […]

Memories Are Passed On Through DNA: How Is this Not ‘Paranormal’?

E.S.P, Paranormal, Science

Scientists recently announced the discovery that memories seem to be passed down through the generations through DNA. “The experiences of a parent, before even conceiving offspring, markedly influence both structure and function in the nervous system of subsequent generations.” At first mention, one may think to oneself: okay, this makes sense, big deal. But actually […]

By Finding Aliens, Will We Find Demons?

Aliens, E.S.P, Paranormal, Unexplained

There are few entities that dominate our society more than aliens and demons. Whether you’re talking about science fiction, SETI, or religion, either the search for extraterrestrial beings or ghouls from Hell will be present somewhere. Both so close and so far, humanity as a whole can’t quite figure out where these entities live or […]

How To Make Money With Psychic Powers

E.S.P

ESP skeptics often ask: if there are people out there who have psychic abilities, why don’t they use those powers to make money at casinos or on the stock market, or to win the lottery? There are several problems with this question. One, it is assuming that financial gain would necessarily be the top priority […]

Would You Take a One-Way Trip to Another Star System?

E.S.P

In a recent post for our friends, the Immortalists (they’re going to live forever), GD writer Jake Anderson speculated as to whether we’ll need life extension and augmentation in order to travel to the nearest star Alpha Centauri. Short of developing a wormhole or faster than light speed travel, we determined that a trip to […]

Mickey Mouse Gas Masks from WWII Era

E.S.P

The fear of chemical warfare caused mass hysteria across the globe during War World II. In England, for instance, citizens (including infants) were given government-issued gas masks in case the Germans dropped poison gas bombs. Schools and offices ran gas mask training courses and people were instructed to keep their masks with them day and […]

Adam Lanza’s Eerie Voice – One Year Before Newtown

E.S.P, Entertainment

In our morbidity, we find few things more engrossing than the minds of killers. We’ll probably never know what precise neurochemical demon haunted Adam Lanza before he killed 26 people in Newtown. But a new audio recording has surfaced that sheds some light on his state of mind, the kinds of things he thought about, […]

The Dark Web: Assassination Markets and Murder Networks

E.S.P, Entertainment

We live in future times, always have. With the rise of the Dark Web, it’s stranger than ever–sinister alliances and transactions are forged over the worldwide web every waking moment. The Silk Road was just the beginning, the tip of the iceberg, our first dalliance with an illegal online network on the Tor browser. Now […]

10 Stunning Occult Photos!

E.S.P, Entertainment, Paranormal

During the Victorian era and the early 20th century, occultism swept across America and Europe. The movement centered on the belief that life continues after death, and that spirits can be contacted via mediums.

Did Philip K. Dick Discover the Matrix?

E.S.P, Entertainment, Paranormal

Towards the end of his life, sci-fi master Philip K. Dick suffered from mental health ailments. Dick himself had always believed in a plurality of realities (‘pluriform pseudo worlds’), and didn’t necessarily consider schizophrenic visions to be insane. To delve into these issues would be to take on the entire 20th century psychiatric empire, which […]

Confessions of a Paranormal Researcher Pt. 1

E.S.P, Paranormal, Unexplained

– Guest Post by the Banshee Anyone who tells you that he or she is a “paranormal expert” should probably not be trusted. This might be a strange way to start a series of posts on The Ghost Diaries about my own paranormal work and research. Call me way too traditional, but I do not […]

Reincarnated Children and Past Life Memories

E.S.P, Paranormal, Unexplained

The concept of reincarnation has grown from its roots in ancient mysticism to a vibrant cultural meme, recycled and reinvented from generation to generation. Reincarnation, at the very least, suggests a collective human memory bank and powerful cosmic synchronicity. Contemporary views on reincarnation are beginning to transcend stale religious platitudes, which is refreshing for those […]

Taking Back ‘Paranormal’

E.S.P

The Ghost Diaries was created under a fairly simple driving mantra: 96% of the universe is unknown, and that’s pretty cool. As citizens of the free world, most of us have grown up in a consumer vacuum, brainwashed from birth to think monsters aren’t real and the world is largely understood. The news from the […]

The Mysterious History of the Ouija Board

E.S.P, Entertainment, Paranormal

The origins of the Ouija board are shrouded in mystery, but there is evidence to suggest they may have arisen from ancient civilizations. According to occult historians, the first historical mention of something resembling a Ouija board was found in China around 1200 B.C. The Chinese would guide a stick around a tray filled with […]

Psychic Predicted the Death of John Lennon

E.S.P

Since the dawn of civilization, humans have attempted to predict the future. Can we predict the future or do we have the power to create our own?  Are we creating it right now?  The future appears to be a precarious place that is constantly changing. Yet, we have all experienced deja vu or seen a future event […]

ESP, Out-of-Body, and the Margins of Reality

E.S.P, Unexplained

By Jake Anderson In the 1990s researchers at Princeton launched the PEAR (The Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research ) program to investigate ESP and the role of consciousness in the physical universe.
