Unconventional Forms of Ghost Hunting

Tuesday, September 1, 2009

Throughout my years of investigating the paranormal, there seems to be a common thread when it comes to convention; there is no convention! How do we collect and record EMF data? Where does one look for residual resonance? Should we investigate with the lights on or off? Day or night? To all of that, I must answer with a question. Does it matter? In the process of gathering scientific data, we must try methods no one else has. We need a way to break out of ruts without data, and to cross verify information. We need unconventional forms of ghost hunting.

My cousin, Francis was telling me about an encounter he had last week. When he got to the part about the ghost, he said, "it was unbelievable! I saw it out of the corner of my eye and when I turned to look, it was gone." There may be a scientific explanation for the out-of-the-corner syndrome.

The retina of your eye consists of light sensitive rods and cones. Rods see definition, and cones see color. The cones are concentrated mostly in the center of the eye. The further an object is in your peripheral vision, the less colorful it will seem. Therefore, given that people seem to see ghosts more often with there peripheral vision, it may be safe to hypothesize that ghosts can be seen more clearly when the color spectrum is removed from the image.

My team has recently taken this notion one step further. We have digitally removed color from various test video and photographs with shocking results! Try it! Let me know what you find!

Thanks for reading,
