What percentage of the world population is affected by ghosts (demons, devils, negative energies, etc.)?
1. Percentage of the world population affected by ghosts
The world population in the year 2006 is estimated to be over 6.5 billion (Ref: census.gov).
The population of ghosts (demons, devils, negative energies, etc.) in the current era is ten times more than humans, i.e. they are over 60 billion in number. With the ghosts (demons, devils, negative energies, etc.) population out-numbering the human population to such a large extent, they adversely affect 100% of the world population in the current era. This percentage fluctuates over the years. Being affected by ghosts on this massive scale is easier to comprehend when understood in the context of the effect of pollution, erosion of ozone layer or global warming on mankind. All of mankind is affected, some suffer to greater degrees than others. Only we have to understand that the menace of being affected by ghosts is far subtler and hence infinitely more dangerous than the environmental pollution we are so concerned about.
Please refer to the article on the difference between being affected and possessed by a ghost (demon, devil, negative energy, etc.).
In the subsequent sections, we have presented statistics for the entire mankind, on being affected and possessed.
2. Type of ghosts affecting mankind
Out of the entire human race in the current era, 70% are tormented by inferior level ghosts and 30% by higher order ghosts, that is, those with more power.
3. Affected versus possessed by ghosts (demons, devils, negative energies, etc.)
In 2006, 30% (+/-5%) of the entire population is possessed. This is one of the reasons the world is in a state of flux with wars and rampant terrorism. This percentage is not static and changes over time.
These figures are alarming, however the truth is that we are all affected to varying degrees but we cannot perceive or understand it. Some may think, “I certainly don’t feel like I am possessed”. The word ‘possessed’ may conjure up Hollywood images of possession in movies such as ‘The Exorcist’ and ‘The Exorcism of Emily Rose’. In fact, in almost all cases the possessed person does not know that he is possessed until it manifests in a dramatic way as it did in Emily Rose’s case. This is because in most cases the process of possession happens gradually over a period of many years. Also with progressive possession the ghost destroys the mind and intellect of the possessed person so completely that he begins to identify himself with the thoughts and instincts of the possessing ghost (demon, devil, negative energy, etc.).
4. Population by level of possession
Please read the article on the levels of possession.
Out of the 30% people possessed as shown in the diagram above:
14% of the possessed population (category of mild possession) can easily be identified as possessed just by the intellect itself. This is due to obvious inexplicable changes at a physical, psychological, intellectual and spiritual level that these possessed people display. In these cases the spiritual strength of the possessing ghost and its control on the possessed person is minimal as compared to the other levels.
The 8% of people that fall in the category of ‘severe’ are the most dangerous to mankind as the controlling ghost is of a very high spiritual level and is mainly interested in harming society at large. It therefore possesses people who have similar basic natures.
5. Spiritual level and the ability to diagnose people affected or possessed by ghosts (demons, devils, negative energies, etc.)
It is impossible for a person without an active sixth sense, who is uneducated about affliction or possession by ghosts to diagnose the root cause of an adverse event and whether it was physical, psychological or spiritual in nature.
Moreover with the increasing spiritual strength of the possessing ghost (demon, devil, negative energy, etc.), it becomes harder to perceive its role behind the event. Higher level ghosts control lower level ghosts just as mafia bosses control the common thief. It is relatively easier to catch the common thief but very difficult to connect the event to and catch the mafia boss. So also, depending on one’s spiritual level and the corresponding sixth sense ability alone, can one identify whether it is a case of being affected or possessed by a ghost and the region of the attacking ghosts (demons, devils, negative energies, etc.). As a rule of thumb, one can only identify an attack by a ghost of the same spiritual level. For example if a person is at the 50% spiritual level and has an active sixth sense he can only identify a ghost of the 50% spiritual level.

6. Percentage of the world population affected over the eras
The following bar chart shows how mankind has been affected by ghosts (demons, devils, negative energies, etc.) since the beginning of the Universe.
The reason for the increasing effect of ghosts (demons, devils, negative energies, etc.) on the world population is because the average spiritual level has decreased over time. As you can see, the mode spiritual level in the era of Truth was 70% giving them the requisite protection from ghosts (demons, devils, negative energies, etc.). On the other hand in the current era the mode spiritual level is 20% which means most of the population does not have the adequate spiritual strength to be protected against being affected by ghosts (demons, devils, negative energies etc.).
Please note that while we have said that 100% of people in the Era of Strife (Kaliyuga) are affected by ghosts, the figures fluctuate. The power of ghosts (demons, devils, negative energies, etc.) ebb and rise during the course of an era. Accordingly their effect on mankind fluctuates. However, if we look at the Era of Strife (Kaliyuga) in its entirety, the effect of ghosts (demons, devils, negative energies, etc.) is 100% on mankind. In the year 2006, the power of ghosts (demons, devils, negative energies, etc.) is at its peak.
