The supernatural. What is it exactly? The best definition I have come across it that it is anything that is perceived or sensed by us that does not fall into the category of something that can be clearly recognized by our own five senses of taste, smell, touch, sight, or sound. Given some time of quiet reflection on the subject most people can and do begin to realize just how limited a perception of the world our five senses give us. We can only perceive the absolute outer manifestation of the finer forces around us with them.
Why is it that we do not naturally have the ability to see or perceive the atoms, the electrical, and even finer magnetic forces all around us? We do perceive and make use of them every day with our electronic devices and other machinery, and yet we only in a limited way.
As time goes on and mankind progresses in his understanding at a more and more rapid pace, it seems that perception of what is now considered the supernatural will and must become common knowledge. Things like telepathy, clairvoyance, and other subjects thought by many to be taboo in this day and age will become generally accepted abilities and used by many people in their every day life.
When the telephone was first becoming popular in the earlier part of the 1900′s there was the feeling by many people that this type of thing was of the devil. People were stubborn and slow to accept the facts presented by science that the unseen and little understood forces of nature could and would improve life in many ways.
These days the supernatural is considered as a separate part of our natural world, but more and more it is beginning to be accepted that it is just as much and maybe even more of who we really are than what we think we are. There are many things science has yet to understand or even begin to perceive, but slowly people are starting to experience a major shift in their thinking regarding things of this nature.
Many folks are beginning to get the idea that a human is really not a physical entity with a soul or spirit nature, but actually a soul with a physical body. The proven abilities of psychics as shown on TV and other types of television shows like ghost hunters and celebrity ghost stories shows just how much a part of the human consciousness this subject and subjects like it are becoming.
