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.
