It all kind of makes sense now!

Maybe you know someone who claims they experienced something paranormal, whether that was apparent ghost sighting, or a demonic-like experience, or maybe you’ve had an experience yourself that you can’t explain. The belief in ghosts and spirits goes way back, and even the most hard-boiled skeptic might get a chill while walking through a graveyard during the dark hours of the night.

Just what does science have to say about these paranormal experiences? Ghosts? Demons? Spirits? Is there a scientific explanation after all?

You might be surprised by what Greg from Brit Lab has to say in the video below. He discusses the science behind what we might deem as paranormal activity and goes on to explain where these experiences stems from: mainly ourselves, our minds, our ears, our eyes, tricking our perception of the world around us.

We would love to hear what you have say about paranormal activity. Let us know in the comments below whether you have ever experienced something that you could not explain.
