A week ago, I read a factual article regarding the mysterious happenings, which happens in many lives. But these happenings doesn't have any concrete evidences to prove them. It provoked me to write this article. Stories of scores of breakthroughs made in science and technology cannot take away from the fact that there exists some phenomenon that we still cannot explain. Here are few mysteries which science cannot explain till date.
Spirits of the dead have long made an appearance in our folklore. People have reported seeing partitions of both strangers and departed loved ones. Though proof of the existence of ghosts remains elusive, eyewitnesses report seeing and even communicating with ghosts. In Minnesota, Taunton Cemetery a 12 year old girl was seen sitting in the rocking chair, rocking it back and forth next to her grave. In another incident, An old man who loved reading books was seen in a photo (After his death), taken by his family members in his library. Weird na?
There is no doubt that UFOs (Unidentified Flying Objects) exist — people see things in the skies that they cannot identify, ranging from aircraft to meteors. Whether or not any of those objects are alien spacecraft is a different matter. Investigation has found known causes for most sightings, but some UFO incidents will remain unexplained. From where they are coming and where do they go?
Call it gut feelings, or a ‘sixth sense’, we have all experienced and we term it as intuition. Psychologists note that people subconsciously pick up information, leading us to sense or know information without knowing exactly how or why we know it. But cases of intuition are difficult to prove or study. Many say, it is the recorded information present in the sub-conscious mind, which results in the Intuition. But doctors say, it is not so. Intuition is beyond the reach of sub-conscious mind.
BIGFOOT/ LOCH NESS
For decades, large, hairy, manlike beasts called Bigfoot have been reported by many eyewitnesses across America and Tibet. In the absence of evidence like teeth or bones, support comes down to sightings and ambiguous photos. Hence solid proofs regarding their existence. Since it is logically impossible to prove a universal negative, science will never be able to prove that creatures like the Loch Ness monster do exist in this world.
Déjà vu is a French phrase meaning ‘already seen’, referring to the distinct, puzzling, and mysterious feeling of having experienced a specific set of circumstances before. Cause and nature of the phenomenon itself remains a mystery. It has been subject to serious psychological and neuro-physiological research. Scientifically speaking, it is an act of "precognition" or "prophecy". Memory trace may lead to the sensation of matching the real life characters with the persons resembling their characteristics and this may be called as Déjà vu. Again, there are no solid proof for these.
People who were once near death have sometimes reported various orphic experiences (such as going into a dark room and emerging in a well-lit place) While such experiences are profound, no one has returned with proof or verifiable information from ‘beyond the grave’. Skeptics suggest that the experiences are explainable as hallucinations of a traumatized brain, yet there is no way to know with certainty what causes near-death experiences.
PSYCHIC POWERS & ESP
Psychic powers and extra-sensory perception (ESP) rank among the top unexplained phenomena if for no other reason than that belief in them is so widespread. Many people believe that intuition is a form of psychic power. Researchers have tested people who claim to have psychic powers, though the results under controlled scientific conditions have so far been negative or ambiguous. Some have argued that psychic powers cannot be tested, or for some reason diminish in the presence of skeptics or scientists. If this is true, science will never be able to prove or disprove the existence of psychic powers. ESP involves reception of information's not from recognized senses. A scientific methodology that shows statistically significant grounds for ESP has not been authenticated.
THE BODY-MIND CONNECTION
Medical science is only beginning to understand the ways in which the mind influences the body. Emotions of people can at times cause a relief in medical symptoms or suffering by believing the cures to be effective, whether they actually are or not. Using processes only poorly understood, the body’s ability to heal itself is far more amazing than anything modern medicine could create. Without medicines, diseases get cured just because of our mind-set. Isn't this something? No solid evidences are available for this one too!
All these are mysteries or questions which remain unanswerable for a long time. What does this mean? Who is the reason behind all these? Can we prejudice that some extraordinary power is acting along with the laws of nature? Again, all these are left behind as the points to ponder.
