According to science, ghosts shouldn't exists

July 29, 2021

Every night, amateur ghost-hunting groups across the country head out into abandoned warehouses, old buildings, and cemeteries to look for ghosts. They often bring along electronic equipment that they believe helps them locate ghostly energy.

Here is a surprising fact about ghosts: Votes have found that 42 percent of Americans and 52 percent of people in the UK believe in ghosts.

There are countless conspiracy theories surrounding ghosts and paranormal activity, and while it shouldn't need explaining to anyone who has a scientific mind, Brian Cox has stressed why such apparitions are "inconceivable."

According to the second law of thermodynamics, ghosts should not exist!

You may ask, what is the 2nd law of thermodynamics?

The simple answer is that the total entropy (a measure of disorder, although it is not it’s the best definition) of an isolated system always increases over time, no matter what! Cleaning your room also increases the entropy of the Universe, since, clean and dirty rooms are two states of the system, so a dirty room has equal entropy as that of a clean one. But when you clean your room, you do some work, disorder the ordered food, you sweat etc. resulting in a total increase of the entropy of the universe! No matter what you do, the entropy will always increase!

Do you want more technical definition? Here is it: Entropy is a scientific concept, as well as a measurable physical property that is most commonly associated with a state of disorder, randomness, or uncertainty. The term and the concept are used in diverse fields, from classical thermodynamics, where it was first recognized, to the microscopic description of nature in statistical physics, and to the principles of information theory. It has found far-ranging applications in chemistry and physics, in biological systems and their relation to life, in cosmology, economics, sociology, weather science, climate change, and information systems including the transmission of information in telecommunication.

So, why ghosts shouldn’t exist?

The answer isn’t so complicated: Because even if ghosts exist we can't touch and interact with them, ghosts can't be made of matter, but instead of energy. And if energy is necessarily lost within every system - particularly if they're doing anything that requires using more of it, such as moving, emitting light, or making spooky sounds - it would be impossible for them to maintain their existence for any significant time.

If we accept that the energy that continues apparitions isn't an altogether new substance or medium, yet carries on from when we were living, at that point this puzzling power controlling the particles that make up our cells would have been identified in the Large Hadron Collider (The large Hadron Collider is the world's largest and highest-energy particle collider and the largest machine in the world) at this point.


I am not concluding that it is simply impossible for ghosts to exist as the universe is in a sense ‘infinite’, although we know it had a start 13.8 billion years ago so it isn't infinite, there is a strong possibility that there are many particles and different versions of energy out there in our enormous magnificent Universe, that we haven't discovered yet even with the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). As we know till now, according to the laws of physics ghosts shouldn’t exist! So, from now you don’t have to check under your bed before sleeping!
