Why are ghosts usually associated with sleep paralysis in cultures globally? On average, I experience them once a week with nothing of the sort appearing. Though the one I woke up last night from (15 mins after sleeping) immediately resulted in a mild hallucination.

Well, the sensation of a presence its quite a common sympton with sleep paralysis. I have myself experienced it several times. It can be understandable superstitious people would give a mystique explanation to such fenomenon. We tend to believe what we see plus what we want to believe.

Lol you canīt have it all!

That must have had a huge role in the development and history of almost all religions.
