I'd love to help you, but I just don't know how. I've seen about twenty ghosts in my life, but never the same one. But well, here's the thing.
We had old outdated wiring and a carbon monoxide leak in the house at one point. So, I'm thinking EMF and CM build up. Well guess what? The CM leak
was repaired and then the wiring was rewired. So, never seen anymore ghosts after that. Tada! Well seen being the key word here. But I did still see
ghosts while the wiring was out of date even though no CM leak anymore.
Why do people always think old houses are haunted? Well which houses have the oldest wiring? EMF fields anyone?
However in later years, off in a grave yard both me and a friend heard the horse hoofs that people talk about. I think they may have described these
on Ghost Hunters, but this was long before that show. I do like that show though, but in the end I guess this is something a lot of people have
experienced and not just us.
Anyway, all that happened is we heard these weird horse hoofs in the middle of the night. So we started chasing after them. After all, we were ghost
hunting. What else would you be doing in a grave yard in the middle of the night?
But it was impossible to catch up to them. I guess ghosts don't like being chased. Probably used to having people run away from them, but that's not
really our style.
It sounded like a horse that was just hoofing along very very slowly, but every time we tried to take a step towards where it was coming from (and we
were running) the sound would move about 20 to 40 feet down the road. The faster we went, the faster they went, but the actual colpity clop never got
any faster. It was like the thing was teleporting down the road or something.
By the time we got to the road where it started, it was gone. On basically a dead end grave yard road? Where did it go? Who knows?
Later we got out the notebook though and took note of all the stuff that was around us, did some maths, did some geometry, and some stuff.
Basically we realized the horse could have been on the road behind us instead of in front of us where a small building was between us and the horse.
It could have produced a similar effect. It was a country road after all. This is where people still ride horses BTW lol. Fun Fun.
Anyway. we realized the sound could have come around the right side of the building that was behind us, echoed off stuff that was in front us, and
then when it hit our ears it would have sounded like it was in front of us, not behind us.
After it had walked far enough towards the other side of the building the sound could have echoed out from the other side instead producing the
teleportation effect making it sound like the sound had moved father down the road.
Because when the horse was dead center most of the sound would have simply been blocked by the building itself. Hence the horse never sped up, but the
sound seemed to move when it started coming around the other side of the building.
However, in the end, we never seen a horse on either road. So it was still a bit freaky!
The point is, there are sightings and paranormal experiences that happen to people even in groups. Sometimes two or more people sees the same thing
and they have their eye (ear) witness accounts. Just like me and my friend will still tell you today.
But you still just never know. There's so many things that could be the actual cause you can just never know for sure if it was a trick of nature or
a real ghost. After all, it's hard to do scientific tests on ghosts when they run away from you.
The best evidence we really have for ghosts is eye witness testimony which we have a lot of, video, and thermal. Maybe EVPs . But none of that is good
enough to prove anything conclusively because you can't retest it and confirm the results.
Also, eye witnesses aren't reliable. Digital cameras and digital compression such as YouTube compress stuff so badly that you see things in the
picture even if they weren't there. Even worse is people that don't know how to use digital anything and not compress it eight times before they
upload it to YouTube where it gets compressed again.
Also, if someone could please explain to me why people can email me full resolution bitmaps of their diabetic cat, but when they see a UFO I get
320X200 jpeg shots? Why does everyone's camera turn to crap as soon as the ghost shows up? Anybody? Can Ben Stein answer that question? I don't
On the video and the thermal it's the same things. You can see things, but it's usually hard enough to make it out that you can never really say
conclusively if it was really a ghost or it was some unknown cause like an IR reflection from your retarded friend off the bathroom wall.
EVPs haven't really been debunked. We know they're there. We know they exist, we just don't know what they are. However, I've seen on the net a
few times where even though we know they're there, we've pretty much debunked the idea that anyone can tell what they're actually saying. Let 100
people listen to an EVP and you get 100 different translations.
So the evidence is always inconclusive because you can't catch the stupid ghost and test it all again to see if the evidence holds up. All you can
say is if you personally believe it or not.
However, if you wanted to do real scientific testing my best bet would probably be to focus on EMFs like other researchers are doing. CM exposure is
too dangerous to try, but exposing people to EMFs doesn't seem to bother them too much except they feel like they're being watched mostly.
If we want to explain ghosts, from my experience, understanding the effects of EMF fields on people's brains is probably the best place to start.
