Science in Seconds Know Everything RUMOURS - Ghostbusters Brit Trogen: If there's something strange in your neighborhood, who you gonna call? Well, you might want to call the fire department, because one common cause of perceived ghost sightings is carbon monoxide poisoning. We, humans, have a bit of an obsession with ghosts. 10% of the population is supposed to encounter a departed spirit at some point in their lives. But the science is finally beginning to catch up with the seance to explain exactly why otherwise sane people might think they see dead people. First up, is infrasound. Infrasound is sound that falls below the audible range of humans, created by earthquakes, certain animals and severe weather that causes us to experience anxiety, sorrow and paranoia. Another possibility is changes in the Earth's geomagnetic fields: experiments have shown that these can stimulate the temporal lobe of the brain, creating a sensation similar to that experienced during an alleged haunting. And other causes of supposed paranormal activity have turned out to be nothing more supernatural than accidentally ingesting ergot, a fungal precursor of LSD. In the end, there is yet to be a ghost that's gotten past the committee for skeptical inquiry, or claim the million dollar James Randi paranormal prize, offered if one can be unearthed. So there you have it, ghosts are nothing to fear. Carbon monoxide poisoning, on the other hand, can kill you. So the next time you think you see one, better crack a window, just to be safe.
