What is Supernatural?

The term “supernatural” refers to things or people that aren’t subject to the rules of nature. This word is used to describe things that aren’t real, like angels, demons, gods, and spirits. Magic, telekinesis, levitation, precognition, extrasensory perception, and other abilities that are said to be in or provided by these beings are also included. Nature, on the other hand, has had many different meanings since the ancient world. The term “supernatural” came into use in the mediaeval period and didn’t exist in the ancient world. Folklore and religion often use the supernatural as an explanation, but it can also be used in more secular situations, like when people believe in superstitions or believe in the paranormal. Naturalism is a philosophy that says there is nothing outside of the natural world. As a result, it is sceptical of supernatural claims.
