WHAT IS A GHOST ?
In traditional belief and fiction, a ghost
(sometimes known as a spectre (British English)
or specter (American English), phantom,
apparition or spook) is the soul or spirit of a
dead person or animal that can appear, in
visible form or other manifestation, to the
Branch of science which deals with the study of
spiritual or ghostly phenomenan is called
“ METAPHYSICS ”
TYPES OF GHOSTS
Poltergeists are troublesome spirits or ghosts which cause
disorder by moving inanimate objects, producing noises
such as knocking, pounding, or banging, and launching
physical attacks on human beings.
Tuyul or toyol is a spirit in the mythology of South-East
Asia. A tuyul is a small child spirit invoked by a shaman or
witch doctor from a dead human foetus. A person who
practices black magic can become rich using a tuyul to
steal things from other people, but in exchange, the tuyul
must breastfeed from a female family member, sucking
blood instead of milk.
Psychic mediums are persons who claim to be able communicate with
the spirits of dead people. There are people who actually believe that
they have powers to perceive paranormal phenomena, but none have
been able to demonstrate such powers when tested under controlled
The Holy Ghost or Holy Spirit is the third person of the Holy
Trinity: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.. As one of the three
persons of the Trinity, the Holy Ghost (Holy Spirit) is
understood to be equal with God the Father (Jehovah), and God
the Son (Jesus Christ). Christian art often depicts the Holy
Spirit as a dove.
FEELINGS WHEN GHOSTS ARE AROUND

for his second son Madhoo Singh.
The structure is said to have been abandoned in 1783 amidst a
One story involves an arrogant king and an offended sadhu, while
the other is a tale of obsession involving a tantrik and a beautiful
princess. Whichever version visitors choose to believe, many agree
that the ‘no entry after dark’ sign put up by the Archaeological
Survey of India is justified by the unsettling presence of an
otherworldly force, bizarre sounds and accompanying anxiety.

ABANDONED ARMY CANTONMENT, MEERUT, UTTAR PRADESH
The Meerut Army Cantonment was the site of the Mangal
Pandey uprising in 1857. The British cracked down on Indian
revolutionaries and crushed rebellion. Over 150 soldiers
were killed here. This is where history leaves off and legend
begins. It is believed that the spirits of the soldiers who
died here still wander the abandoned cantonment, although
their activities are less regimented nowadays. Visitors have
reported seeing headless apparitions, spooky shadows,
hearing mysterious sounds of dripping water and sensing a

Castle of Good Hope – Cape Town, South Africa
The Castle of Good Hope in Cape Town, South Africa was built in the 17th century
by the Dutch East India Company. It’s the country’s oldest colonial building,
originally serving as a replenishment station for ships passing the treacherous
waters of the Cape.
The first reported paranormal occurrence was when the apparition of a tall
gentleman was seen in 1915 on one of the castles’ ramparts. The man wasn’t seen
again until 1947, when he was seen on a regular basis over a two week period. He
would be seen jumping off the side of one of the castle walls, and walking
between the bastions Leerdam and Oranje.
One of the most popular stories associated with the Castle is of the former
governor Pieter Gysbert van Noodt. He died on 23 April 1728, the same day he had
sentenced to death seven soldiers who were caught attempting to desert the
military. It’s believed one of the soldiers placed a curse on him and demanded he
came to watch the execution, which he didn’t. Later that day, Van Noodt was
found dead slouched over his desk with a look of terror on his face.
Another famous haunting is of the Lady in Grey. She has been witnessed running
through the castle holding her face and crying hysterically. However, since a
woman’s body was found during recent excavations her ghost hasn’t been

The Curse of Tutankhamun
When Lord Carnarvon died on 5 April 1923, seven weeks after the official opening of
pharaoh Tutankhamun's burial chamber, rumours were rife about a curse.
The lights of Cairo were said to have gone out at the moment of his death, while back
at Carnarvon's English estate his dog, Susie, was supposed to have howled and died at
the same time.
One newspaper even printed a curse supposed to have been written at the entrance
of the tomb, the translation being: "They who enter this sacred tomb shall swift be
visited by wings of death."
One inscription, found at the entrance of the tomb, did say: "It is I who hinder the
sand from choking the secret chamber. I am for the protection of the deceased."
According to one list, of the 26 individuals present at the official opening of the
tomb, six had died within a decade. The deaths continued apparently for another
10 years with 20 other people involved in the opening of the tomb collapsing and
dying from heart attacks or other illnesses, including madness. Apparently there
have been over more than 20 deaths linked to King Tutankhamun! This number is
more than just a coincidence.
A curse perhaps?
NOW RELATING SCIENCE
Even if we have not spotted a ghost ourselves or felt the presence of one, we would surely
know people who claim to have experienced a ghostly encounter. People usually attribute
their paranormal experiences to their imagination.
What is the law of thermodynamics? A careful study of it reveals the fact that science has
already proved that ghosts do exist. According to this law "Energy can neither be created
nor destroyed; it can only change form.“ Let us now analyze this law carefully. Energy never
dies, according to this important law; instead, energy shifts from one form to the other.
Accordingly, the energy that we are is not destroyed by death; it just changes form.
Skeptics would say that our bodies would be decomposed by the action of the
microorganisms, and this is how human energy would change form. But, what about the
intelligence that gives us an identity? Just consider the amazing nature of our minds and
bodies. Would all this just end up as being fodder for the microbes? Does this sound like a
fair exchange? The more one questions, the more one feels that there is more to life than
what meets the scientific eye.
In late June 2010, such scientific research was published in the
Journal of the Society for Psychical Research. Dr. Barrie Colvin,
who does not believe in life after death, has been studying
ghostly knocks and noises emanating from various cases of
poltergeist-type haunting for five long years. His findings are
set to convince a few skeptics that some paranormal activity,
specifically odd noises created by ghosts, is real.
Using advanced scientific equipment to analyze sound waves
believed to be made by ghosts during haunting, Dr. Colvin has
found that these sounds are strikingly different wave forms when
compared to known noises created by people, animals, or anything
else found within our world. The paranormal acoustic wave forms
have no conventional explanation by Dr. Colvin or his fellow
scientists. Being skeptics, the results of the experiments have
left them dumbfounded. In short, these findings were not
expected. Colvin's publication about ghosts within a well-

Borley Rectory(An Amazing Story…)
Borley Rectory was a Victorian mansion that gained fame as "the most haunted house in
England". Built in 1862 to house the rector of the parish of Borley, Essex and his family,
it was badly damaged by fire in 1939 and demolished in 1944.
Harry Price, a paranormal researcher, to make his first visit to the house that would
ultimately make him famous. He arrived on 12 June and immediately objective
"phenomena" of a new kind appeared, such as the throwing of stones, a vase and
other objects. "Spirit messages" were tapped out from the frame of a mirror. As
soon as Harry Price left, these ceased.
After Price's death in 1948 Eric Dingwall, Kathleen M. Goldney, and Trevor H. Hall, three
members of the Society for Psychical Research (SPR) investigated his claims about
The "Borley Report", as the SPR study has become known, stated that many of the
phenomena were either faked or due to natural causes such as rats and the strange
acoustics attributed to the odd shape of the house.
Later the owner admitted that she had seen no apparitions and that the alleged ghostly
noises were caused by the wind, friends she invited to the house and in other cases by
herself playing practical jokes on her husband.
Lets Enjoy These facts About Ghosts……
Ghosts just happen to be nocturnal, preferring night-time to „do their thing‟. So
when you die you suddenly become adverse to daylight – right?
Like the popular bug-eyed Aliens, modern ghosts are all stereotypical, with the
same looks and characteristics.
Purportedly ghosts have the „magical‟ capabilities to travel through walls,
levitate etc. Powers they didn‟t have when they were alive. They move objects all
the time – but never get behind the wheels of a car and drive, type a letter on a
computer or light-up a Bensons and Hedges. When it comes to interacting with
humans all ghosts want to do is scare the shit out of the living in the dead of
night or flash their tits at us in photos. Aimless activity, no-one has been able to
detect with any surety.
Seeing that potentially we living-humans share the planet with 60 billion spirits,
comprising all of humanities dead – where do these hordes of living-dead spend
their time? I mean where do they live? Caves? The bottom of the ocean? The
stratosphere? Six to a house?
Last but not least – there is not a shred of evidence . . . . .
Why do we encounter ghosts???
Unfortunately, real ghost hunters don‟t carry proton packs. However, they do use
tools such as the ion counter. The ion counter, well, counts ions. An ion is an atom
with an uneven amount of protons and electrons.
Ghost hunters go crazy over ions because they supposedly show a paranormal
presence. Some say a spirit‟s presence interferes with the normal ion count in
the atmosphere while others say ghosts draw upon ionic energy when they want
to appear and scare people to death. Ions are caused by all kinds of natural
phenomena like weather, solar radiation, and radon gas. So it basically comes
down to how someone interprets the evidence. Scientists see ions and think,
“Natural.” Ghost hunters see ions and think, “Paranormal!
Carbon Monoxide Poisoning
Carbon monoxide (CO) is an odorless, colorless gas, which makes it really hard to
detect. It‟s dangerous because our red blood cells absorb CO much easier than
they do oxygen, and this oxygen deprivation leads to symptoms such as weakness,
nausea, confusion, and eventually death.
For example, in 2005, a woman called the authorities after seeing a
spirit in her bathroom. It turned out the paranormal activity was
due to her leaky water heater which was filling the house with CO.
Stay away from carbon monoxide, because one way or another, it‟ll
have you seeing ghosts.
Ghost hunters have a love-hate relationship with orbs. These
glowing balls of light are supposedly the spirits of people who‟ve
passed away, but haven‟t quite passed on. Invisible to the eye, orbs
can only be seen in photographs, and that‟s where things get tricky.
Skeptic says when a dust speck or bug is too close to the camera, it
will show up in the photo as a blurry, out-of-focus circle. And
thanks to the camera flash, the orb will appear to be glowing and is
thus mistaken for a ghost. Perfectly reasonable mistake.
Electric Stimulation Of The Brain
When Swiss scientists electrically stimulated an epileptic patient‟s brain,things
got really spooky. The patient reported a shadow person sitting behind her,
copying her every move.
When she bent forward and grabbed her knees, it reached around her body and
held her. The doctors then told her to read a card, but the shadow person tried
to take it out of her hand.
What happened was the scientists had stimulated the left temporoparietal
junction, the part of the brain that defines the idea of self. By interfering with
the area that helps us tell the difference between ourselves and others, the
doctors screwed up the brain‟s ability to understand its own body, thus leading to
the creation of a copycat shadow person.
Researchers are hoping this is the key to understanding why so many people, both
schizophrenic and healthy, encounter shadow beings and other creatures like
Bipolar disorder (also known as bipolar affective disorder, manic-
depressive disorder, or manic depression) is a mental illness.
Individuals with bipolar disorder experience episodes of an
elevated or agitated mood known as mania, alternating with
episodes of depression.
There are widespread problems with social stigma, stereotypes, and
prejudice against individuals with bipolar disorder.
A person suffering from bipolar disorder starts hallucinating. The
patient‟s brain starts creating a virtual environment as real world,
the extent of its effects progresses with time.
For example: A bipolar positive person can interact, see and feel
the presence of a person about whom he has heard a lot or thought
a lot. The patient can even behave like the same.
The Final Conclusion
The story of ghost is that of an alien, those who have
experienced any encounter with them, they believe and
those who haven’t, they don’t believe.
There are a lots of theory supporting there existence
but none can satisfy every one. Every theory has some
limitations where is fails to prove its worth.
We can’t even say they don’t exist because there are
many events and evidences which can make you believe
that they are wandering around you.
ITS YOUR TIME TO DECIDE.
