So all the governments are in on this? I still find it funny how the only footage that always comes up is grainy, distorted, far out. Why does nobody ever get nice HD close ups?

I think it is grainy and distorted because the spirit realm is a little different than ours and some information, visual or audiodative, is bound to get lost in the process of conversion.

Your theory about harvesting and feeding of fear is quite interesting.
Personally, I've thought of it as spirits operating on a different frequencey (dimension really) and our emotions emit vibrations (good or bad "vibes") that make it possible for them to manifest in our realm. Fear, as you say, is a mighty emotion, able to cripple a grown person (sometimes premanently- even lethal) and since "ghosts" are for some reason or another fundamently connected with horror in most of the world's lore, we bring on those feelings in the presence of the spirits. If one would be able to bring on some other emotion, say love for instance, I guess they could manifest very well in that frequency as well. I've never had the chance to really try this out but I've had some occurances that has made me wonder about it...
Anyway, that some entities "prey" on fear and emotions alike is not such a wild idea. I think one major thing is to realize that the afterlife might not be all peaches and cream- there are rules for survival on that side as well but in a whole 'nother ball game.
Might that be so that such "predators" could be avoided if you do not fear them?
I've been of the idea that all spirits are of the same essence and that no angel, demon or soul is made from a substance more or less powerful than the other. Only the perception of them gives them more or less power. The energy held within the soul is charged with immense energy and it is readily available as long as you are able to realize it (this is where the tethered human mind sets the limits through generations of culural imprint).
Of course, such a predator would know how to get its fill so it might not be easy to fend them off all the time...
Is it in place to add the old proverb: you are what you eat? If the entity feeds of a specific kind of emotion, it becomes synonymous with it? Are we still not obliged to regard some emotions as "bad" and some as "good" despite this being true (if it is)? Is an entity of hate to be regarded equal as one of love?
*brain bursting alert*
A challenge to the theories above:
My younger sister currently lives in an appartment that is "haunted". I think it is a portal to "the other side".
She has constant electrical problems, such as light bulbs bursting all the time, she's got EVP over the phone (both parties can hear them) and about every night she has "someone" standing by her bed looking at her.
Now, she's not bothered with it (she says) but she still sleeps with the light on (lol).
What I am going for here is however, how can the spirits manifest if there is no emotion to feed them? I am aware that this might also be a case of my sister not telling me the truth about how she feels about all this...
The thing is: she clearly has the gift. This is far for the first time she's had contact (sometimes it has been phsical even) but she still won't believe any of it! At least she keeps all options open- that includes her personal favourite: her own "wild imagination" I tried preaching but she won't have it (we're all much too alike sometimes).
So she won't recognize them fully, still they are attracted to her. How is that?
Sorry for being so very totally OT, I ask for the tolerance of OP and Mods, but these subjects is what occupies me most of my spare time nowadays and there is litterarily no end to all my inquiries into this field.
I will look at the Monroe Institute and return with some input maybe.
