They were born in the minds of great thinkers and live in the scientific and philosophical literature. They have helped make what used to be fantasy a reality and continue to motivate the search for what has not been found until now.

Some have even crept into everyday life and show no signs of wanting to leave.

These are the demons of science, creatures that occupy the space of laws, theories, or concepts that we have not yet managed to understand.

They are a very particular type of thought experiment and “part of scientific language,” Mexican-American physicist Jimena Canales, author of “Possessed: a gloomy history of demons in science,” tells BBC Mundo.

“I am a historian of science and I loved seeing how scientists used that word because it is paradoxical since we generally think that they are secular and not superstitious.”
