Renowned author of books on the paranormal, Brad Steiger shared his research about a 'Shadow World' and its inhabitants, who may appear as normal to us, only to disappear without a trace. These beings, who can be thought of as "cosmic tricksters," may actually inhabit a parallel dimension to ours, and cross over into our realm from time to time, he theorized. One case example cited by Steiger, involved a man who met a woman at a church picnic. The man later discovered that the church had burned down a number of years ago and there was no trace of the woman. Later, he ran into two men he saw at the picnic, who warned him not to try and contact the woman.
Steiger also touched on various types of spirit beings. Spirit guides are typically apart from humanity, and have not had a human incarnation. Spirit parasites have also never been human, and attempt to attack the human soul in a demonic manner.
Steiger discussed what he calls "deiform spirits," -- nature or earth beings that inhabit sacred places. There've been instances when humans didn't show respect in these locations, and subsequently, these people may have become haunted or suffered misfortune, he noted.
Brad Steiger is the author/coauthor of 170 books with over 17 million copies in print.His first published articles on the unexplained appeared in 1956, and he has now written more than 2,000 articles with paranormal themes.

He was born in Fort Dodge, Iowa, on February 19,1936. He is married to Sherry Hansen Steiger, a licensed and ordained minister, herself the author or coauthor of over 22 books.

Shadow people are supernatural shadow-like humanoid figures that, according to believers, are seen flickering on walls and ceilings in the viewer's peripheral vision. They are often reported moving with quick, jerky movements, and quickly disintegrate into walls or mirrors. They are believed to be evil and aggressive in nature, although a few people consider them to be a form of guardian angel.
In 2010, the apparitions were described as one of the most regularly reported paranormal phenomena in the United States. This is attributed to occasional reports on a radio show, where paranormal researcher Heidi Hollis has been interviewed several times on the subject of shadow people. Hollis believes that shadow people have always existed, that they feed upon emotions of fear, and that they can be repelled by thinking positively. Others believe that shadow people may be the extra-dimensional inhabitants of another universe.
The stories of shadow people have been compared to those of the Raven Mocker, a witch from Cherokee Indian mythology who sometimes appears as a shadowy phantom, and the Islamic Jinn.
Several scientific principles can be used to explain reports of apparitional experiences such as shadow people. These include optical illusions or hallucinations brought on by physiological or psychological circumstances, drug use or side effects of medication, and the interaction of external agents on the human body. Another reason that could be behind the illusion is sleep deprivation, which may lead to hallucinations.
