Shadow people (also known as shadow ghosts, shadow figures, shadow beings, shadow men, or shadow folk ) are supernatural shadow-like humanoid figures that, according to believers, are seen mostly in peripheral vision and move quickly. They are sometimes known in modern folklore and paranormal popular culture as dark entities with malevolent intentions.
Several scientific principles can be used to explain reports of shadow people, including optical illusions or hallucinations brought on by physiological/psychological circumstances, drug use or side effects of medication, and the interaction of external agents on the human body.
An illusion of a shadow person can be created when the left temporoparietal junction, a specific region of the brain, is stimulated.
Figures seen in peripheral areas of vision can sometimes be explained as pareidolia, a phenomenon in which the brain incorrectly interprets random patterns of light/shadow or texture as familiar patterns such as faces and human forms.
Hypnagogia (also known as “waking-sleep”), a physiological condition in which one is partially between sleep and awakeness, could also account for such perceptions. During hypnagogia, one can be conscious and aware of their environment, but also in a dream-like state where they can perceive images from their subconscious. People experiencing hypnagogia commonly report seeing or sensing lights or shadows moving around them, as well as other visual hallucinations and even a (subtle or powerful) feeling of dread. Hypnagogia is sometimes known as ‘the faces-in-the-dark phenomenon’ because these people commonly report seeing faces while experiencing hypnagogia.
Fake or not, they’re so interesting.
I still see them. I think they’re legit, but that’s just me.
this kind of stuff makes me wonder if spirits can project or manipulate energy that affects certain parts of our brains, to make us perceive things that aren’t really there in order to make a statement or something..
I think this happened to me recently? 0.o
I honestly think that’s the most common ways spirits ‘manifest’. They aren’t really solid, they’re just energy, no physicality. so when the ‘manifest’… I think they’re projecting an image of themselves, and our brain interprets it a bit differently because of the frequency mix-up. And it’s probably in their best interest, because then everyone who ‘thinks’ that they’ve seen these shadow people, haven’t actually seen anything, which reduces credibility among people. I can totally see poltergeists and other obnoxious spirits manipulating this theory.
THE WEEPING WOMAN - SANTA FE, NEW MEXICO
New Mexico is a favorite haunt of La Llorona, and she is often sighted along the Rio Grand. In Santa Fe, the skeletally thin wailing woman has been repeatedly sighted in and around the Public Employees Retirement Association (PERA) building. The five-story structure, near a tributary of the Rio Grande, is built over an old Spanish graveyard. The two bottom floors are underground, deep in the graveyard. Employees report hearing sobbing echoes through the corridors and sometimes feel unseen hands push them on the stairs. Many locals refuse to go anywhere near the building.
The timeless legend of the Weeping Woman, La Llorona, originated in South America and traveled to the American Southwest via Mexico. La Llorona is always said to be tall and thin, with long dark hair and a flowing white gown. She is the ghost of a mother who drowned her own children in a creek and now eternally sobs as she searches for them along creeks and rivers.
The finer details vary, but while the Weeping Woman is most often thought of as a tragic figure, she is also portrayed by parents of disobedient children as a banshee who will come for them if they don’t behave. In fact, the California Milk Advisory Board sometimes runs a “got milk?” ad that features La Llorona.
La Llorona is also a prominent figure in Taos and Taos Pueblo, Guadalupta, and Colfax, a ghost town near Cimarron, New mexico.
EMPRESS THEATRE - FORT MACLEOD, ALBERTA - CANADA
Located on Main St. in Fort Macleod, Alberta, the Empress Theatre opened in 1912. Although it was the fourth theater in town when it was constructed, it is the only one that remains in town. In 1982, it was purchased by the Fort Macleod Provincial Historic Area Society, after which it benefited from a million-dollar rennovation. It is still in operation with stage shows, concerts and first-run movies.
This theater’s resident ghost is thought to be either former manager Dan Boyle or, more popularly, a former janitor referred to as Ed. “He worked a second job at the local auction market and was known to enjoy a drink and a smoke now and then,” according to the Empress website. “This helps lead to the belief that the ghost is in fact this man, as often sightings or experiences are accompanied by the scent of alcohol, tobacco and manure.”
- Lights that go off and on by themselves.
- Popcorn buckets that reappear after being tossed in the garbage.
- Footsteps up and down the stairs.
- A man’s face appearing in the mirrors of the washrooms.
