  1. A natural explanation is always going to be more plausible than an unnatural one. That's just the definition of unnatural. Our brain is wired to constantly look for patterns when there are none, and to be vulnerable to suggestion. If not, we wouldn't be able to function in society. You would be surprised how realistic it can seem when we interpret something as something else when maybe it has no meaning. If you close your eyes and randomize your visual and hearing senses, it is proven you will start to hallucinate. Just like rubbing your eyes and closing them to see fireworks and other shapes.

  2. My cat Harlequin sometimes stares at the walls. She looks very intent on something but there's nothing there. No lint floating in the air or crawling along the wall or even light hitting it. It can be really creepy.

  3. As someone who can see, this is why we don't say these things easily cause ppl think we want attention and it's just hallucinations. Just remember that the universe is beyond our imagination and sometimes our willingness to understand

  4. Ghosts are not real! Religion is a belif meaning people 'think' it is real just like ghosts and if ghosts were real then were is the proof some kid and a mother dont have hard evidence and dont scare me any good video about ghosts is probably planned or its a prank
