I think mankind in general is drawn to the mysterious and the unknown. There is a certain desire to seek out things we don't understand in an effort to explain them.

I became interested in the unexplained originally because I had a considerable interest in the UFO Phenomenon, and later discovered the sheer number of other strange things that go on in the world that nobody can really explain.

After looking up the Internet for web sites on the subject, I found so many different phenomena, that I decided I needed to find a site with them all listed so that I could look them up like an Encyclopaedia.

Funnily enough that gave me an idea for making a web site of my own.  ;)

A lot of it is to do with humankind's innate curiousity too.

I've always been curious on how things work or why some things happen. But I have a list of what got me interested,
being told ghost stories as a child
Dr Who
the early Frankenstien and Draclua movies
seeing the film version of Dennis Wheatlys 'the Devil rides out'
Dickens 'Christmas Carol' (my favourite ghost story)

We do what we do because of who we are. If we did otherwise, we would not be ourselves.

I've always been interested in the unexplained and paranormal ever since I can remember. I remember when I was about four I would always watch any TV Specials and Shows about the unexplained (particularly Sightings and Unsolved Mysteries).

[blue]I love a good mystery, you may have noticed. I saw (actually more rather heard and felt) a ghost when I was young, which naturally grabbed my attention. It all spiralled from there.

[blue]I was in a hotel when I was around about eight in North Wales with my family. It wasn't a particularly old building or anything (100 years or so) and I had been down to reception to ask for something. On the way back up, alone, something passed me on a dogleg staircase: I heard the sound of footsteps (although the treads were carpeted) and what felt like something brush by my arm.

As I was young I didn't fully realise what had happened until I told my parents. They said I must have 'felt' a ghost, laughing. I wouldn't go down alone again after that.

We checked with reception and they told us that they didn't tell the guests, but a few others had noticed something on those stairs...
