Well so far the science shows most psychics aren't psychic at all. They're just lying. I don't think they're all lying. But however much we'd like to
believe that ghosts are all over, we may have to accept that's just not the case.
Paranormal people even admit this implicitly without realizing it. They do it by selecting an old abandon building or old cemetery to ghost hunt in.
Because that's where the "ghosts" are right? But then they extrapolate from that, that ghosts are all over? That's not very fair.
If they're all over then why don't they just stay home and investigate? It shows deep down even they think that ghosts are not in fact all over. If
they have to chill in a cemetery to catch the ghost, then what basis are they telling me that they believe ghosts are all over?
But like I said, in my experience, ghosts that are only seen by one person have always turned out to be something that wasn't a ghost. Psychics may be
real, but it's foolish to think that every 3 year old that had a bad dream is psychic. That has never turned out to be the case in my experience.
Like I said, most psychics that see ghosts all the time, don't call for paranormal investigators. They're used to seeing ghosts all the time. They
already know ghosts are there. Why would they need us?
You have to understand there's a sample bias. From an investigators point of view, you're dealing with people that aren't psychic and have never seen
ghosts before. They're scared, and that's why they're calling you in the first place.
So due to that sample bias, somebody being psychic in the house is the least likely explanation. I know people would like to believe ghosts are all
over, but from my experience, what it actually turns out to be is that hallucinations caused by chemicals, drug addiction, or whatever actually is
In most cases you're just chasing someone's hallucination. When you remove that thing that's causing the hallucination from the home the "ghost" has
gone away in our experience.
When the ghost is actually real and manifesting, we found that everyone pretty much experiences the same thing, and at this point the camera also
picks them up just fine. But see, like I said, by the time we get called it's gone beyond your normal ghost story.
But that's why paranormal investigation is pointless and I got out of it. Nobody gives a crap about evidence. You'd think they would, but they don't.
They only care about backing up their own point of view and their psychic new age stuff. Just two examples I encountered.
Oh they had toxic chemicals stored under their bed with the lid off? Oh no, that couldn't be it! Our house must be haunted! Have you seen any ghosts
since you moved the cleaning chemicals to the garage? No, but it must be haunted!
Oh your teenager is on meth and hasn't slept in seven days! That's why he's hallucinating!
Oh no no no, my boy must be psychic! That's why he's seeing ghosts! I know my son!. Okay, well, how many ghosts does he see after a good night sleep?
Oh they only seem to appear after he hasn't slept for a week for some reason! But we know he's psychic!
It's like okay, fine, believe whatever you want people ya know.
