Top Ten Mysterious Phenomena in Science

in Education

Science is powerful, but it doesn't mean it can explain everything. Ghosts, Near-Death Experiences and Life after Death or UFOs are some mysterious phenomena that science can not make satisfactory explanation. Moreover, many other phenomena still exist in the lives of people, but no one knows the cause. Here is the list of 10 typical phenomena.



Many people have said that they saw apparitions of both shadowy strangers and departed loved ones. Some people reported that they saw, photographed, and even communicated with ghosts.


The Taos Hum, New Mexico

In the small city of Taos, some residents and visitors have been annoyed and puzzled by a mysterious and faint low-frequency hum in the desert air for years. Only about 2 percent of Taos residents can hear this sound. It was believed that this phenomenon was caused by unusual acoustics.



For decades, it is reported that large, hairy, manlike beasts called Bigfoot have occasionally been discovered across America.



In fact, we have all experienced intuition (or sixth sense) at one time or another. People subconsciously get information about the world, leading us to seemingly sense or know information without knowing exactly how or why we know it.


Mysterious Disappearances

Déjà vu

Deja vu is a French phrase meaning 'already seen,' It refers to the mysterious feeling of having experienced a specific set of circumstances before.



There is no doubt that UFOs (Unidentified Flying Objects) exist - many people see things in the skies that they cannot identify, ranging from aircraft to meteors. Whether or not any of those objects and lights is alien spacecraft is another matter entirely; given the fantastic distances and effort involved in just getting to Earth from across the universe.


Near-Death Experiences and Life After Death


There is no way to know with certainty what causes near-death experiences, or if they truly are visions of "the other side." Skeptics think that the experiences are rooted from a shocked brain. People who were once near death have talked about various mystical experiences such as going into a tunnel and emerging in a light.


Psychic powers and ESP


Intuition is believed to be a form of psychic power, a way of accessing arcane or special knowledge about the world or the future. Researchers have tested people who claim to have psychic powers, though the results under controlled scientific conditions have so far been negative or ambiguous.


The Body/Mind Connection


The body's ability to heal itself is far more amazing than anything modern medicine could create.
