I was asked did I investigate paranormal activities to write these series? If you mean ‘investigate’ along the line of such things as going to old spooky houses to talk to ghost? No, I didn’t. I feel real life is scary enough. But yes, I did investigate accounts of the paranormal activities. I also recounted many stories the elders told. Whether their experience was real or imaginary? I don’t know. I didn’t ask. I learned early on if you asked them too many questions they clammed up and you never learnt the rest of their story.
Although, I do believe in the world of science. But I also believe science has its’ limits. That science can not explain everything. Maybe one day science will be able to explain the great unknown but according to science: Matter can not be created nor destroyed. It can only change shape or form. So, if it can not be created means it is infinite. And even the infinite comes from somewhere. If life is an energy force meaning life is a form of matter that lives on or exist beyond death in some shape form or fashion. Because the energy force doesn’t cease even according to scientific definition. So, doesn’t it take on another form of existence? Religions says it does. Science has never out right said it does but admitted it isn’t destroyed for ‘it’ is matter. This theory is as old as humanity. I think there’s something to the existence of ghosts or people wouldn’t have kept talking about them for eons upon eons of years. Every culture, no matter where you go has their belief about ghost, demons and other spiritual entities. What did they encounter to make them say these things? I do not know. I have compared enough evident to events to learn there’s some truth to all legends. Was this their way of explaining the unknown? Maybe.
Science, philosophy, medicine or anything can become one’s religion. Religion can be anything one excessively admire and worship. It doesn’t have to be an otherworldly deity which is the most common definition. It can be knowledge, a celebrity, an object, an idea, a theory, science, or even a loved one. Anything can become your god. Therefore, the deep admiration and unshakeable faith and belief in; of an idea, a theory, a person or an object can become one’s religion.
People too often loosely use the term ‘religious belief’ without fully understanding the meaning of the words. Everyone has some form of religious belief whether the service is conducted in a lab, online, or in a church or temple. It’s still one’s religion.
