According to P.S. Perkins (2008), “Human communication is socialization, the primary tool of enculturation. It is the framework under which we experience one another and the reality in which we individually and collectively live” (p.14). Communication is consequently vital to human interaction, whereby we are inevitably and compulsively drawn to communicate with one another (Rayudu, 2010).
If you believe in ghosts, you aren’t alone. A YouGov survey of about 1,000 people says that 45% of people believe that ghosts or spirits of the dead can come back and interact with us. It kind of sounds crazy to believe that people can stick around after they die and even interact with objects in our world, but so many people swear they have encountered something that they can’t explain. I’ve always grew up really skeptical of these things. The Idea that spirits stick around with us after death is an ancient one, and is incorporated into countless literature, from the Bible to “Macbeth”. It has inspired so many different kinds of media like horror movies, ghost stories, and tv shows. I grew up watching some of these things, and the question always remained in my head: Are ghosts real? I really wanted to answer that in this senior project. I think I finally have a good answer that I’m going to stick with.
Social – Talking out loud helps children to work through ideas, feelings and frustrations. In doing this children start to empathise and see other peoples point of view, and gradually become able to think about other people’s needs and feelings. This helps children to develop socially acceptable behaviour and build their confidence. Communicating with other children or adults in social situations helps children to understand what is expected of them and to enjoy participating. Children that have difficulties with speech, language and communication may find that their social development is impaired and they become awkward in social situations.
Ghosts have been a controversial debate for a while now and there is no scientific proof to their existence. However many people so seem to have the belief they are out there. People have retold several stories and personal experiences proving that ghosts are a living thing. If it is proven in the future that the existence of ghosts are not real, it could be a good thing knowing that there is nothing harmful out after us. Although if ghosts do exist it would be cool to be able to communicate with the dead and have their spirits in our presence. Do you believe in
This shows that people thought it was super entertaining to hear some of these stories of people communicating with the dead. In the article "The Haunted House" by Valerie Worth it talks about some people go in and explore a old, earey haunted house, but they are not scared. I the article it says “Its echoes, Its aching stairs, Its doors gone stiff at the hinges, Remind us of its Owners, who Grew old, who Died, but Who are still Here: learning In the closet like That curtain rod, Sleeping on the cellar Shelf like this empty jelly jar.” (Worth 9). This shows that people there going out of there way to in some way get to interact with ghost, because it entantering to people to be scared. In conclusion, people are addicted to being scared, and hearing these stories of people talking to the dead which simply can not be understudied, or even scientifically
There are many mysteries throughout everywhere. They have scared for centuries or maybe only years. Although some become legends. They spook reads. Although it's up to you to believe or call them myths, but some things cannot be explained. No scientists can explain ghosts completely, there is too much evidence and only not enough. Would you believe in ghosts after an encounter? mostly likely. If you believe or not believe something can't be proved so ill let you be the judge if its myth or mystery.
Ghosts, as with any other misunderstood group or people, have been preyed upon by others without understanding. The lack of knowledge about ghosts and haunting activity has led people astray as to what they really are. What Hollywood and television portrays is very inaccurate and cannot be relied upon as truthful. They show these spirits of the dead as being evil in nature, filled with malice and harmful intent. But that this is not the case. The field of paranormal activity is amazing. It has caught the imagination of people from every walk of life. It has always interested me and has influenced me to pick this as the topic for my research. Through this research I wish to uncover the truth about the existence of ghosts.
There have been appearances and hearings of ghosts in the Cavalier Hotel in VA beach on June 5th,1929.

Now, whether or not you have or haven’t changed your mind about theses ghosts, 42% of Americans believe in ghosts or have experience being visited by a ghost.
Ghosts can be created through several methods from mentality to death. The narrator in the story Woman Warrior by Maxine Hong Kingston has her own ghosts, as do I. Her ghosts are generated through the past before and after her birth, while my ghosts are simply people from my past, such as Andrew and Jordan. Maxine's and my ghosts share numerous similarities and differences, such as mysteriousness, regrets, and broken hearts/dreams, but they are ours to conquer. "I am telling on her...." (pg. 16) as Maxine and I can agree, we are revealing the ghosts to the world.

What makes tv shows popular. Everyone has heard of “Grey's Anatomy’, “The Walking Dead” and “Gossip Girl” even if they have never personally seen the show. As an adamant fan of Grey's Anatomy or “Greys” according to Mr. Wilden because “That is what the cool kids say”, I am personally guilty of binge watching 12 seasons over the course of 6 months. In case you didn't know that is 279 episodes that are each 45 min long so 12,555 min in the last 183 days were consumed with by one TV show. But what is it that makes a tv series so widely popular? What makes someone bing watch 12 season? What do producers to their show to gain a constantly increasing fan base? Dedicated viewers, those who watch each new episode every week, are the product of a well
A ghost, according to the article “History of Ghosts” on History.com, is a person's spirit once it has separated itself from the body after death. Also known as specters, ghosts continue existing even after the heart stops and the corpse is cold, and they fall under the category of paranormal phenomena. When something is considered paranormal, it simply means that science has no explanation for it. So if science can't explain it, it can't be real, right? Not necessarily. It just means that it hasn't been proven a fact, it's all in theory. But Jack Porter makes a valid point in his article, “The Study of Paranormal Phenomenon is a Legitimate Science”, when he says, “It is important to remember the Big Bang is a theory, but that is still
There are many important and significant factors in a human being’s life. Without those elements, life stays incomplete. For instance, food, recreation, hobby, fun, and emotions are fundamentals of a normal life. One of those elements is every day talk. Everyday talk is the process in which people interact with each other and communicate their points of views (Tedpower, n.d.). This is a way for them to stay in contact with each other. This is important because human beings cannot live alone. They are social animals by the nature, which means at every point of their lives they need someone to talk to or communicate. If a person stays alone for a long time, he starts being depressed and frustrated which can lead to many odd behavioral traits. People who talk to each other or have a decent conversation with each other can be friends, family, colleagues, siblings, sub-ordinates, employers, or strangers.
