A paranormal phenomenon is a different theoretical concept which has to do with things, such as dark energy and dark matter. There terms are used to talk about the subject but are based on empirical observations and data that is gathered through scientific means.

Many religions of the ancient times are based on the study paranormal things, while the metaphysics of some of these old cultures include demons, fairies, ghosts, gods and other types of supernatural phenomenon. Popular paranormal beliefs include extraterrestrial life, unidentified flying objects, extrasensory perception, cryptids, psychic abilities, and ghosts.

However, one of the earliest references to a ghost is found in the Old Testament of the Bible. In Samuel (The First book), where it was said that King Saul meats the ghost of the dead prophet and priest Samuel. An ancient Greek, Homer, wrote many books and some contained the idea, such as the Iliad and the Odyssey held various references to spectres and ghosts talking and giving advice to Greek heroes.

In Tibet, Buddhist monk wrote Bardo Thodol as a way of helping human soul reach Nirvana after death and also to prevent the process of rebirth.

In Medieval Europe, there is a book called Malleus Maleficarum, written in the 1400’s offers ideas on how to find and eliminate witches. The writer of the book wrote it to refute people who do not believe that witches indeed exists. With these examples, it is not reasonable to say that paranormal activity is somewhat new. The fact is that it has been an idea since the beginning of civilization.

Throughout the years, paranormal activities studied in different ways. Most ideas used in paranormal studies originated from the 19th century and early 20th century. People like Helena Blavatsky and Edgar Cayce both claimed to have unique methods that have allowed them to talk with other beings and to take a look into the future. Such claims have sparked the spiritual movement in Europe and America, and these formed the basis of the studies of paranormal activities.
