 "Belief in ghosts or spirits is part of human culture, and the telling of ghost stories has been traced back to ancient times. Today, according to the George H. Gallup International Institute, more than half the world's population believes in ghosts and at least a third of that group have actually seen one. Whether we like it or not, ghosts and spirits are still part of modern civilization, and most of us believe there is a lot more going on in the universe than our practical scientists and social leaders would admit. This rejected part of human experience, which is another side of reality, will not go away simply by closing our eyes to it. As we enter the new millennium, more and more people are opening their eyes to the Other Side. The number of paranormal experiences being reported has quadrupled in the last decade, and most organizations and researchers are swamped with new cases. Witnesses are much more willing to talk about such things, and they are actively looking for answers about what is really going on. The media and entertainment industries recognize this trend and have responded with an avalanche of articles and films on the subject. The surge of interest in the paranormal coupled with the growing emphasis on the global economy and emerging cultures makes this a truly planetary phenomenon. For the first time, local folklore is giving way to an international perspective that emphasizes the similarities and belief-altering components of these experiences."  Dennis William Hauck, author of Haunted Places: the National Directory and the International Directory of Haunted Places.
