Want to Meet a Ghost?

GhostlyDramas

Nowadays there are paranormal investigators in just about every town!  There seems to be a wide-spread growing fascination for “the other side”.  It’s not so strange that so many of us are intrigued by such a thing…why wouldn’t we be interested in a “place” (more a sphere of existence than a place) where every single one of us will eventually end up?  Honestly, I don’t understand why there hasn’t been more widespread interest before now.  Interacting with the spirit world should be a NORMAL thing to do, not a PARAnormal freak thing!!  What better comfort are we going to get when we lose a loved one to “death” than to speak to them once they’ve “crossed over” (a common term used to describe the transition from physical to spiritual existence)?  What else is going to ease the pain of loss than KNOWING that our departed loved ones are “alive” and…

Ghosts exist…what now?

Paranormal & Society

This week I came across the Sir Noface documentary currently touring America. Led by Chad Calek, a well-known paranormal investigator and filmmaker, the documentary claims to provide definitive proof of ghosts – in the form of a full apparition appearing on camera. As always I remain sceptical of this claim, particularly following the commercialised manner in which it appears to be being presented to the public – sell out tours including a range of ticket packages, a documentary film which I am sure will come with a price tag, merchandise etc. Surely, one would assume, if you had dedicated your life to paranormal research and you truly believe you have finally found proof of ghosts you would share far and wide? Open up the footage to further analysis? Invite other researchers and scientists along to discuss the merit and implications of such a find? Furthermore, the recent claim by Most Haunted…

What The Heck is a Haunting Anyway?

That Conversation About Haunted Objects and Places!

A while ago I had a little online conversation with Jayne Harris regarding haunted objects and places. In which we discussed the concept of how haunted objects and places maybe the same or different. This was generally based on the fact that there appears to be a general understanding that some see the two as being different and others see them as the same.

Initially I believe my position was that both objects and places must be the same as they carried the same attributes in regards to being haunted. There were similarities between them that made me see the haunting of an object to be pretty much be the same in principle as the haunting of a building say.

However as I continued to think about it I looked deeper into the actual understanding of a haunting! Oddly this is where the…

“Yes, and imagine a world where there were no hypothetical situations” ― Jasper Fforde, First Among Sequels

time_travel I’m ready to march.

I have a bone to pick with the science fiction genre.  Well, two bones really.  The first is that they cancelled Farscape and Firefly.  The second is that the entire oeuvre makes us believe anything is possible, and we are sadly disappointed when this turns out to be existentially untrue.  For generations we have been steeped in the notion that time travel is possible.  It’s a trope that has spawned many a popular book or movie and has led the rest of us to presume that it’s just a matter of applying enough brain power to the problem, and eventually we’ll be vacationing on dinosaur safaris or having Christmas dinner with Henry II and Eleanor of Aquitaine.

One of my favorite pastimes is envisioning worst-case scenarios, which makes…

Meta-Analysis in Parapsychology

Parapsychology

Carlos S. Alvarado, PhD, Research Fellow, Parapsychology Foundation

Several meta-analyses have beeen published about parapsychological experiments in recent years (click here and here). If you want to get a short overview of this see Lance Storm’s recent introductory online article on the topic (Meta-analysis in parapsychology. In R. McLuhan (Ed.), Psi Encyclopedia. London: Society for Psychical Research). The article opens explaining the topic:

“Meta-analysis is a statistical procedure that combines the results of a number of studies in a particular area of research in order to provide a more robust finding. The method has been embraced by parapsychologists since the 1980s, since the results of meta-analyses tend overwhelmingly to confirm the statistically significant findings of individual psi studies, underscoring the existence of psi as a genuine phenomenon. However, this apparent success has contributed to doubts about the value of meta-analysis among those who question the…

The Consciousness – Are We Looking in the Right Place?

Consciousness and the Paranormal

The concept of consciousness and its relation to the paranormal is far from a new one, in fact its a concept that one of the founding fathers of the Society for Psychical Research raised in his book ‘Human Personality and its Survival of Bodily Death’ back in the early 1900’s. Frederick Myers wrote a considerable amount on the subject, which wasn’t published until after he’s death.

The question of whether consciousness survives death is actually one of the ‘hard questions’ out there. Although the question itself is slightly flawed by the fact that a definitive explanation of consciousness is still to be found. Thus without that how we will truly define it as surviving death will always be just beyond our reach.

So, if you’re searching for spirits or ghosts, interested in the afterlife, then you are already looking…

Inter-Dimensional Hypothesis.

 “We are dealing with a multidimensional paraphysical phenomenon which is largely indigenous to planet earth”.
The Inter-dimensional Hypothesis (IDH) is an alternative theory to the extra-terrestrial hypothesis (ETH) It seeks to explain the origins of mysterious UFO spacecraft and visitations from other separate realities or dimensions that coexist separately alongside our own. The idea encompasses existentialism as well as quantum physics and parallel universes. 
Albert Einstein spoke of theories supporting inter-dimensionalism to the degree that the cosmos could contain many versions of “you” and many of “me”, and both of us might not be contained in all of them. This idea of other realities and inter-dimensions is also advanced by renowned ufologist Jacques Vallée.
Some UFO proponents accepted the Inter-Dimensional Hypothesis (IDH) because interstellar  distances between the stars would make  travel impractical using conventional means. and nobody had demonstrated an antigravity or faster-than-light travel hypothesis that could explain extra-terrestrial machines. The IDH eliminates the  necessity  to…
