Today I will discuss the four biggest threats to the paranormal field and how together they have caused a situation where outsiders laugh at those of us in the field and that integrity has for all intents and purposes been severely damaged due to a lack of self-education and people focusing more on chasing either personal notoriety or social media likes on the internet.
So you have an interest in the paranormal and either there isn’t a ghosthunting or paranormal investigation team in your area for you to join or you don’t agree with the philosophy of a local group and wish to start your own. You are toying with the idea of starting your own team and don’t know where to start or wish to make sure that your bases are covered. You may also wish to improve your current team or your personal career in the paranormal investigation field. If any of what I just said applies to you, even in a small way then today’s blog post is geared towards you.
Vibroacoustic phenomenon is a term that refers to when audible and or non-audible frequencies combine with vibration and the result influences human physiology or inanimate objects. This is not paranormal theory, and is a subject of science that has had controlled scientific method based experiments by scientists with advanced college degrees. In many cases you will find vibroacoustic phenomenon is being incorrectly misinterpreted as paranormal activity. Today we discuss infrasound, ultrasound, Schumann Resonances, and Helmholtz Resonances and how they should be investigated for at every paranormal investigation, why this is so, and how to do so.
What is delegation? Delegation is the act of entrusting a task or responsibility to another person. This blog entry is geared towards anyone on a paranormal investigation team that has any level of authority and could be somewhat relevant to someone who leads a ghost hunting group.
Did you know that negativity most often starts out as a very tiny seed and with each following instance of negativity that original seed gets watered, and in a serious enough happenstance may receive a heavy dose of miracle grow. Let’s say hypothetically that leading a paranormal investigation team is synonymous to tending to a garden. It doesn’t take very long for a seed of negativity to quickly grow into a big weed and without taking care of that weed it will continue to spread and eventually will overwhelm your beautiful garden.
nvestigations or ghost hunts are completed at night. Have you ever wondered why this is so? Today’s blog entry is part one of a two part series where we will discuss this phenomenon. Today we will discuss the human component of why we investigate at night.
Seeing Shadows, Hearing Noises, and Feeling Choked or Being Unable to Move Upon Waking Up Is Not Paranormal
Whether you are like myself, a die hard paranormal investigator that leans primarily on a wide variety of real world science subjects before considering the paranormal, a seasoned paranormal investigator who is only familiar with the commonly known science involved with a paranormal investigation, a newer paranormal investigator, a recreational ghost hunter, or a paranormal […]
The Mandela Effect is a name used to describe a false memory, also referred to as illusory memory; paramnesia; and pseudomemory. How does this play a role in paranormal investigations?
During their lifetime most people have heard about and most likely experienced déjà vu at some point. Have you ever heard of or experienced jamais vu or presque vu? Presque vu is more common than déjà vu (and when I explain it you will agree it has happened to you countless times), however jamais vu is much less common than the other two. Today we will discuss what these three situations, whose names originated from the French language, what they are and how they can come into play during a science based paranormal investigation.
Also known as the “Semmelweis Effect”, the Semmelweis Reflex is a behavioral tendency for a person to hold on to their preexisting beliefs about a subject and to summarily reject new knowledge or evidence that contradicts the person’s preexisting belief even if said knowledge or evidence is strong or unequivocal.
A month ago I posted a blog entry entitled “Misperceived As Paranormal Activity”. I thought that it would be beneficial to expand on that post and discuss more situations where activity can be misperceived as paranormal when it is xenonormal. Xenonormal means it’s normal in nature, but unfamiliar.
This is the second post in a series of posts regarding human behavioral tendencies that you will contend with during your paranormal investigative career. During a science based investigation it is imperative to be cognizant of human behavioral tendencies including yours as the investigator, your colleagues, and the clients. Today we discuss the Dunning-Kruger Effect In Paranormal Investigations.
In recreational ghost hunting activities are simplified to grabbing a piece of technology or two, running into the location, and find yourself some paranormal activity so you can have an enjoyable experience. However to conduct a thorough science based paranormal investigation there is so much more to take into account. Subjects such as property and client history, client personality and mental state, property geology, technology in close proximity to the property, electromagnetic sources within a few blocks or even miles away if within line of sight, meteorology including solar weather, and applicable client quantum entanglement just to name a few of the slew of subjects that can affect paranormal activity whether perceived or empirical.
It is theorized by some scientists familiar with the topic that quantum entanglement is also a phenomenon that can occur between people.
