Magnetic field measurements for power frequencies were measured continuously over two 24-hr. periods for a small house in which two adults who exhibited above normal occurrences of complex partial epileptic-like experiences had reported “waves of fear”, tactile sensations, nightmares, apparitions, and a sensed presence. The experiences occurred within an area in which irregular amplitude modulations between 1 microT and 5 microT (50 mG) from 60-Hz sources, with durations of a few seconds to… 
Magnetic variances associated with haunt-type experiences:a comparison using time-synchronised baseline measurements
Recent laboratory studies have revealed that human exposure to low-frequency complex electromagnetic fields (EMFs) can induce strange and exceptional hallucinatory experiences under controlled
Things That Go Bump in the Literature: An Environmental Appraisal of “Haunted Houses”
A narrative overview of the past 20-years of environmental research on anomalous experiences attributed to “haunted house” revealed a relative paucity of studies on environmental factors that ostensibly stimulate haunt-type experiences and a recurring focus on six ambient variables.
Mystical experience is a phenomenon that has influenced and continues to influence the development of culture and civilization. Mystical experiences in particular places are known to all cultures.
The Paranormal is (Still) Normal: The Sociological Implications of a Survey of Paranormal Experiences in Great Britain
Historically, there has been limited sociological interest in the paranormal and no systematic study of reported paranormal experiences. There are also few medium-to-large-scale survey results with

The issue of epileptic personality still lingers in neuropsychology, and biological reductionist trends in medical-psychological thinking are traced, and attention is drawn to questions that arise due to changing cultural and medical representations.
Advent Era of Soul Possessing Machines: Future Is Now
Consciousness is the mysterious aspect our of lives. There are so many theories and mathematical models which had tried to explain the phenomenon but they are not up to mark. We had found that all
Autism and the Panoply of Religious Belief, Disbelief and Experience
While the cognitive mechanisms that incline us towards theistic belief in superhuman agents have been well documented over the past twenty-five years, unbelief has not received nearly so much atten

Experimental Simulation of a Haunt Experience and Elicitation of Paroxysmal Electroencephalographic Activity by Transcerebral Complex Magnetic Fields: Induction of a Synthetic “Ghost”?
The results of this experiment suggest that controlled simulation of these pervasive phenomena within the laboratory is possible and that this experimental protocol may help discern the physical stimuli that evoke their occurrence in nature.
