I searched ATS and coulnt find much. From what I understand Kirlian photography is basically al technique used to get a camera to capture the
invisible energy field or aura that all living things supposedly give off.
This is a good example of Kirlian photo I found on google:
Wikipedia has a good description of what it is here if you are interested:
Here is a skeptical description of it which I tend to side with as I am pretty skeptical about stuff like this.
This explanation makes the most sense to me as I personally think its BS.
"Living things...are moist. When the electricity enters the living object, it produces an area of gas ionization around the photographed object,
assuming moisture is present on the object. This moisture is transferred from the subject to the emulsion surface of the photographic film and causes
an alternation of the electric charge pattern on the film. If a photograph is taken in a vacuum, where no ionized gas is present, no Kirlian image
appears. If the Kirlian image were due to some paranormal fundamental living energy field, it should not disappear in a simple vacuum "
Anyway I would like to know what others here think of it? Is it real or just a hoax so to speak.
