Each week, I'll answer a question about the paranormal, whether a general question, or one about human or animal ghosts (Earthbound) or spirits (crossed over). Here's this week's question:
A: Since the dawn of time, ghosts and spirits have been trying to contact the living. Since I'm unsure what myths you're referring to (there are many) I'll just say that there have always been people who have the gift to sense them. In ancient times, and depending upon the location or the culture, those people were either revered as gifted or executed as sorcerers.
Cave paintings by indigenous Australians date back 28,000 years, some depicting skulls, bones, spirits and the afterlife. Other cave paintings in Indonesia date back a further 10,000 years!
Of course, today, we know that mediums are gifted and use their abilities to help others.
