Science can't explain everything. Things like déjà vu, the placebo effect and many other phenomena still make scientists scratch their heads and wonder what’s going on.

Your House Isn’t Haunted: Here’s What The Science Says: https://youtu.be/vheG7i-R7zk?list=PLwwOk5fvpuuIg5MD8vNm6HlqXIuTDqoDD
+ + + + + + + +
The Nature Of Deja Vu:
“The term déjà vu comes from the French and means, literally, "already seen." Those who have experienced the feeling describe it as an overwhelming sense of familiarity with something that shouldn't be familiar at all."
Placebos Work Even if You Know They’re Fake: But How?:
“Physicians have long believed that some form of deception is essential to the placebo effect: after all, if you tell people that you’re giving them a fake drug, why would they respond by getting better?"
The Dancing Plague of 1518:
“Perhaps the very first authentic rave, the Dancing Plague of 1518 is one of the most bizarre incidents you'll ever read about. It all started, well, back in the summer of 1518 in Strasbourg, France."
“Rapa Nui’s mysterious moai statues stand in silence but speak volumes about the achievements of their creators. The stone blocks, carved into head-and-torso figures, average 13 feet (4 meters) tall and 14 tons."
The World’s Biggest Mysteries Scientists Still Can’t Solve:
“While Harry Houdini prided himself on leaving audiences from around the world mystified at his illusions and escapes, modern science has revealed how he accomplished many of his spectacles of grandeur."
Why Real-life Ghost Hunters Hate “Ghost Hunters”:
“In butchered Italian, Nick Groff tells the ghosts of Poveglia, a creepy island off the coast of Venice, Italy, to “use his energy.” A faint rap is heard. Zak Bagans, his fellow ghost hunter, hunches over and grabs his stomach."
Do Scientists Fear the Paranormal?:
“The question has been asked for decades: why haven’t psychic powers been proven yet? Psychics have been studied for decades, both in and out of the laboratory, yet the scientific community (and the public at large) remains unconvinced."
What Skepticism Reveals About Science:
“The postmodernist belief in the relativism of truth, coupled to the clicker culture of mass media where attention spans are measured in New York minutes, leaves us with a bewildering array of truth claims packaged in infotainment units."
Freeman Dyson, Global Warming, ESP And The Fun Of Being “Bunkrapt":
“Should a scientist who believes in extrasensory perception—the ability to read minds, intuit the future and so on—be taken seriously?"
Lone Voices Special: Take Nobody’s Word For It:
“You don’t come across many Nobel prizewinners who believe in the paranormal, but Brian Josephson is one of them."

In researching the un-provable you will discover that you wasted a lot of time. When someone cane demonstrated that the paranormal is real then is the time to actually research and investigate it. For now these are just baseless claim nore often used as an excuse to justify why a religion can't prove any of its claims which is also a waste of time
I absolutely believe that the "Paranormal" warrants serious study and investigation. There are so many things that scientists can't explain and just tend to 'write off' instead of taking the time, energy, and yes money to fully look at the phenomena with an OPEN MIND, independent of any preconceived notions or opinions! Too often things in the realm of the "paranormal" when investigated, are approached with the idea of PROVING THEM FAKE OR NON-EXISTANT rather than seriously investigating the events so as to maintain their original ideas! We get nowhere with that type of attitude!
Sometimes I have dejavu because I read A LOT of fiction books. More often than I like, I feel like I have dejavu then have to think about whether it happened in my life or in a book. If u read a lot, you understand
Well think about the times you had dejavu but couldn’t stop trying to figure it out. Then eventually you realize that person you thought you’d met before was wearing the same perfume as you’re best friend was when u met her....or whatever example. Alternatively, you’re remembering a similar experience from one of ur past lives.
It happened a few times that I had a specific dream and I remember the dream after I wake up and then days or months pass and I happen to be in one of the scenes of the dream I had! Does that qualify as deja-vu? It’s not just a feeling I’ve experienced that scene, I actually remember the dream clearly before the scene actually happened in real life! How does science explain that?
Dancing zombies? Affected by a virus or fungus or microbe etc? An idea military idea? Weaponized it would have the enemy unable to stay down in their bunkers! They would all stand up dancing and then you just machine gun them all down ...war won
It's absolutely necessary for us to study the paranormal! Over man's entire history, he has been met with things that at first seemed "paranormal" or seemed like "magic". It was only when man put on his "thinking cap", that we began to pick things apart, delving into the realm of the unknown, in a bid to understand all of the incredible processes around him. Can u imagine giving Neanderthals one of our smartphones, or one of those INCREDIBLE massage chairs you'd be willing to refinance your house for? Neanderthals wouldn't have been capable of comprehending what they were looking at, let alone what it did or how to use it. And to us, they're such an integral and interwoven part of our daily lives, that we can't go back now. Point being, our phones would've appeared magical or paranormal to them. A final note, one of my most favorite quotes relating to all things paranormal is: "The absence of evidence, is not evidence of absence"
People have recently discovered that in the heads on Easter Island or not always just heads some of them contain entire bodies card from a solid piece of stone most people believe that the people inhabited the island before the European ice caps melted and Rose the ocean 500 feet so it was originally a mountain on a giant Island and the CIA used psychics in the 1980s who had a better accuracy percentage than the test Trials of aspirin somewhere between 60 and 90%
I get it a lot. I also get the other one. I can't remember the word. it's "something vu" lol. I get premonitions and visions occasionally too. I also attract spirits.
Before anyone calls me insane let me point out that I used to be a very logically minded person. My superstitions come from experience not because I was raised to believe in them. That said, at this point in my life I'd give you the benefit of the doubt if you told me you had socks that spoke Portuguese.
You should do a episode on split personality disorders and how one personality can be diabetic and need insulin but another personality and be fine and without diabetes and loves painting and be an exceptional artist then have another personality that is odc or thinks they're a child and all of those personalities has its own traits and health issues but no personality has overlapping health issues or the same knowledge in different areas kind of like the movie split
Deja vu - was already proven to be the work of the brain pulling a memory or group of memories related to the perceived event. Most significant even some traumatic events but some simple yet irrelevant events are possible triggers for this "feeling of familiarity". The feeling of familiar can occur when one or more memory/data are aligned to be "similar" or represent the current event. Simple: You saw a bus with certain specific colors moving to X direction... your brain does not only records this memory but also the background details etc. Thus when the same memory was triggered, thus it fires the "Feeling of familiarity". This occurs not only on events, things or places. It also occurs on meeting people. Have you ever experienced "I think I knew you somewhere"? Deja vu is one of the best aspects of implanted memories "in the future" as good or bad or even traumatic implanted memories can force/compel a person/organism/group of' to come up with a desired/expected reaction to such stimuli (in this case memory/data). The best example of which in this time planck is the movie “inception”.
Placebo Effect – When all is good, when all is abundant, what else can humans have problems with? One of them is “Stress”. The body handles stress in many ways not only destructive but sometimes deadly. When a person is ill/sick or just basically any situation/stimuli that causes stress, the body degenerates. Production of stress hormones etc will cause damage to the body, thus causing the illness to get worsen. Mental torture is one of the most effective torture method of all time and most are “cured” by placebo medicine/methods. One of which is giving the “assurance” that the person/patient is “getting cured”. The Placebo Cure Methodology does not only require taking “medications” but a very effective way which was discovered in the future is by leveling up the so called methodology by involving a “Doctor” to the scene. This “doctor” will provide feedback to the person/patient that he/she is getting “better” thus giving a “good” stimulus, thus lowering stress, thus the body “regeneration rate” over taking the “degenerative” effects of stress or any so called “disease”/condition. Guess what… “Faith healers” are known to be the best “Placebo Doctors” *wink*… in the past and future ofc.
Dancing Plague – “an idle/bored mind is the devils playground” and when everyone/most people around you dies, will you even fear death? Would you even care? Same events happened in the future after the wars, but ofc many events similar to this happened before. Certain colonies who experience a “disconnect” tend to go to the route of suicidal tendencies… one of “primitive human genome” faults.
Voynich manuscript – so it’s still not decoded… please tell people to grab a compass and an automatic clock and move letters one by one with spaces paused at “one full circle” and you will be able to decode it. Oh and please don`t mind the pictures… they are there as a distraction… and start decoding at the back. Well that’s how I remembered it being decoded… and the content is not what you think it is.
Big foot, loch ness, so called mystical/primitive species etc… doesn’t really matter… in the future it is “we” “humans” who decide who/which/what species will “live”… ofc many oppose to this, but when your crumbling stomach aches and the only “sustainable” way is to ELIMINATE “unproductive” and deemed “unnecessary” species… one if not the most disgusting human act that has ever occurred to so called “pre-colonizer humanity”. No worries though… as long as we have a “copy” of the specie DNA makeup, we can literally “resurrect/reanimate” them… a lot of which did in future colonies… some even go to these colonies just to see these so called “Primitive” animals/species… ofc some keep them as pets and pays a lot of credits hahaha mine is a dragon btw… not that fire breathing dragon though… it’s just a mixed DNA from an alligator + bat + other stuff… looks like a dragon… but can’t really fly… enough.
Ghost – Energy creates Matter, Matter creates Energy. Proven and tested. Does it matter though? Yes… especially when that energy carries memories! Ever experience an “out of body experience”? What if, a person died and he/she knows his/her cause of death? Best way to solve a murder case is to… ask the dead. Literally… or just suck the eye balls out and grab the VRC at the back of his/her eyes. Unless his/her eyes are closed at the time of death…oh well…
ESP or extra sensory perception – nothing more than a radiation/wave that is transferred/directed to one being to another. Best test subject are a mother and her daughter as they share the best mental wave compatibility. The study and experiments of the said subject helped, helps and will continue to prove “beneficial” especially to covert missions and explorations, deemed especially useful in exploration of new colonial sites.
Now for you question… is it worth studying the “paranormal” and if you can get that money what would you do with it?
Is it worth studying the “paranormal”? Not all of them. Some, few even, are.
If you can get that money what would you do with it? Protecting the lives that matters. Especially this generations future explorers.
please excuse my typos. ive also theorized that deja vu.. could be a pre-memory lapse of sort. but worth way more study if u ask me. the voynich manuscript? j.r.r. tolkien made 2 of his own languages in LOTR. it could be a created language by the artist or writer himself. also..many cultures and languages have gone extinct throught history. mabey its one of them? lol the dancing town? hypothetically, yes i would probably blame some kind of chemical, or biological influence. but who knows. and i, like dyson, thinks e.s.p. is worth more research. but i also, as well tend to shun anything that cant be reproduced or observed in a controlled manner, during scientific procedure, or expirament. this is great!! awesome vid id luv to learn more about where i cand find (scientific-real studies of the para super natural normal. thank u
i luv this. all my life ive studied super nat and para norm. as a science hobby-ist. i must remain skeptical until proven otherwise. its so hard to find actual 'scientific' mysteries. great job seeker post more on this subject..scientifically lol
i really like your use of common sense and not leaving info out whether its good or bad for today standard, tough i would wish you used some pictures at least to illustrate what your are saying but besides that very entertaining anyway!
Hmm.. Every single time I have experienced Deja Vu, I immediately feel an overwhelming nausea in the pit of my stomach, like i'm physically about to be sick. So very interesting to hear the notion of it being linked to the neuronal chemical model for disgust.
I think the paranormal people or shadow people as they are refered ( I actually have seen one, in broad daylight a human volumetric shadow scared my and i scared it, it moved and made a noise in the grass), I think it has to do with other dimensions. They are not ghosts or demons or whatever, I think that its either some sort of temporal dimensional conversion (diferent timelines/univeres) touch or barely touch in random places OR its some sort of quantum effect that happens in our brains and allow us to sense variations in space time that again relies on what i just described BUT the diference is that only we Human can percieve them!
Man, you could at least learn by heart your monologue! How many of these can we take? This guy is reading everything from his computer while he clearly does not have fundamental knowledge of the matter! God!
There’s so much in this life that science will never understand....and that’s ok, it’s part of life. Just accept not everything has an explanation, and you’ll have a lot less stress. I accept many things I can’t explain or control, along with the things I can.
i dreamt about having trouble splitting a piece of wood the day after that night i stacked firewood one of them was not copletley splitted, as i was trying to split the piece of wood i realised that it was the same scenario as in the dream.
Know exactly what you mean about these ghost hunter shows bringing the field into disrepute . Same as those prehistoric alien shows on the 'Nostradamus channel', you know, sister outfit to the 'Hitler channel'... my gorge wants to rise when I see that Nikos Constantinous, you know, the guy with the hair..! also that chancer with the breezeblock head and the Beard, the one with the Area 51 routine...
I remember this Scouse (Liverpool) medium called Derek Acorah, a real joker, being outed on TV by this punter, it was a thing to treasure; Derek- 'I see an old man..' punter 'does he have red hair?' Derek, 'yes'- punter, 'is it my grandad ? is it George ?', Derek- 'yes, yes, he says he wishes he had had more time with you.. .' punter 'oh crap! I just remembered my grandad's name is Baldy Dave and I play golf with him every Saturday... Derek- spluttering, furious backpedaling! It was exquisite !
I thought we know about yawning. It's your body needing more oxygen. The reason why you yawn when someone else does is because it's in our DNA and you see them yawn so your body thinks, "If they need oxygen then I must need oxygen too"
Yep about the book. I was thinking it was some whacky teenagers did it as a joke for the future but... I was just thinking after seeing this again, maybe it wasn't a hoax. Maybe it was some mentally ill person thought he heard voices and wrote down what he saw in his head.
I'm a devout atheist but I believe ESP is possible this way, emotional ESP, animals know when you're frightened, I live in the woods, they also know when you're not, they seem to also know when you're happy, and possibly whales have visited me because I was eager to see them, a personal accidental study, maybe ten out of thirteen attempts, they came! Best sightings ever!
Dude, doesn’t mean science is flawed that there is zero evidence that something is even a thing.... it doesn’t disprove anything but one can reasonably operate on the assumption that it doesn’t exist. That is not a flaw. As soon as actual evidence appears in reguards to a claim, than science defiantly can address it and come up with a scientific understanding regarding it. How can there be a scientific understanding of a non thing? Not a flaw partner
think you have 2 persons and imagine both have wifi over their heads, if other person psychology is very strong over the other he can hack your mind with a virus because brain is like a computer and asking interrogation or psycological questions.
if you imagine and believe in something stronly enough it will exist. just like someone have a new idea. most likely people will hack your brain and look into your fantasy if you believe it stong enough and have strong vision/story for it. like ghost for example
+Science Plus This was an awesome video, but there is an error in the underlying theme of the video; Science doesn't need to even address these claims. Positive assertions require evidence before belief is justified, the burden of proof lies with the claimant. Also, Science does not make proclamations of Truth, but rather methodically considers the best, most accurate evidence available and then demonstrates what is most likely true.
The reason Supernatural hypothesis are less valid than their Natural counter-parts in claims of causation, is that things that do not exist cannot effect those that do. *This is not a claim that Supernature does not exist,* it's a statement asserting that in order for anything, including Supernature, to be put forward as a valid cause, that thing must be at the very least, existent.
The things that are in the category of _Things that Might Exist_ are, at this point, no different as far as our capacity to gauge them than the things in the _Non-Existent_ category. Existence cannot be asserted without first being demonstrated. Nature is known to exist. If one wishes to posit Supernatural explanations, we then compound a problem, by putting forward an explanation that requires demonstration.
Until we can evaluate, or indeed determine the existence of, Supernature, it is not rational to assign attributes or capabilities to it. When one puts Supernature as the cause, one says that an effect we can't explain, was produced by a cause we know nothing about, and for all we know, doesn't exist. So, "Mysterious Event" "X," is caused by unknown, possibly non-existent "Cause" "Y," which isn't really saying much.
5 and 7 hours ago, two articles posted claiming Voynich Manuscript has been cracked - Never heard of either site, though the articles seem sound enough... anyone else know anything? Seems it's just a mundane collection, most likely a custom book for a single customer... - https://arstechnica.com/science/2017/09/the-mysterious-voynich-manuscript-has-finally-been-decoded/
I think a deja Vu is just a brain error, where what you see and hear is directly written into memory, so you think this exact thing happened while it just gets written.
This is the most logical explanation that I just came up with.
Steve Johnson how do you want to know if you had a dream about it after that deja Vu moment?
What makes you believe something "supernatural" happened?
Sorry to disappoint you, in reality is nothing, absolutely nothing supernatural, only our minds can trick us into believing that.
I tested my deja Vu theory on some friends, and asked them to describe their experience and I came to this conclusion too.
Actually I came to this theory while studying my last deja Vu, it was very recent back then, I tracked that feeling back to a part of my brain, where memory is written, that experience started by positive feedback loop and then corrupts the memory writing and accessing ability.
Since then I haven't had a deja Vu moment anymore, normally I had such an experience about every month.
I think by tracking this signal back by forcing this experience I either disconnected that process or just made it stable, only time will tell, if I won't get this deja Vu moment again I know for sure that I "cured" it for myself... I really don't hope so, because that experience is kinda fun sometimes and it feels weird.
Steve Johnson what's supernatural in this exact setting?
I can tell you that your brain missfired signals, most likely because you have been frightened of dropping her, I can't know that.
But that would be a reason to create that effect of writing the memory while experiencing a moment. (thinking about it is equal to experiencing)
I don't expect anyone to understand that phenomenon, but that's the most logical explanation.
Also I didn't want to attack you with missfired signals, that's natural, it happens to most of humanity at some point.
Steve Johnson you were thinking that you knew it before it happened, as I said your brain stored that information while you're thinking.
A bit of a positive feedback loop.
Nobody can really know what happens in the future, even if it feels like that, senses are not the best way to experience reality, but they aren't the worst either.
