Do you believe that the ghost exists?
In my experience I canít move my body when I woke up at the middle of the night.
I was terrified.
But are there actually ghost?
Is it only physical fatigue?
I donít believe ghost because I never see ghost.
But someone see ghost.
I hope the ghost isnít existing.
Do you have any own strange story?

That is a very normal experience called Sleep Paralysis. Basically, when you go into deep sleep, your motor function of your brain turns off. That way, when you dream that you are running, you don't actually get up and start running. Then as you gradually wake up, the movement parts of your brain turn on again. But if you wake suddenly from deep sleep, your motor functions may not be turned on yet. You will not be able to move. And because you are still sleepy, your imagination will conjure up frightful images that you maybe are being attacked by ghosts, demons, or aliens (whatever your belief system will most allow you to believe).
Your best defense against these nighttime "visitors" is to just to back to sleep. Afterall, it could be worse, you could really be getting visited!

I haven't seen anyone but i know some person who believe in ghosts

For example my grandmother had seen a ghost when she was young.
One day she had gone to our pantry which was out of our house. Normally door of pantry had been locked but that day not. She had been anxious despite she had been gone to pantry. She had seen a ghost in pantry so she had fainted. When she had sobered up, ghost hadn't been there.
Finally my grandmother find a golden stone under stairs.

Do i believe in ghost? I don't know because my grandmother is too old

There are 24,000 living creatures by God and we know some of them.

Question Question Question
If 24,000 are by God, who made the other 1,399,976,000 species?
