This morning, when I was thinking about quantum physics and developments that started with string theory.
(Yes, some of us are admittedly geeky about ghost hunting.)
Physics has vast applications to ghost hunting. Today, I’m thinking about molecules and the ways some ghosts interact with our world.
In a nutshell, what if apparitions (including “shadow people”) have physical bodies, but there are far larger spaces between the molecules… if we can even describe them as ‘molecules’?
This could explain why they can pass through walls without slowing down.
(I’ve seen a ghost walk through a wall at Bradford College, in Massachusetts. I’ve seen other apparitions “vanish” but maybe they also escaped through walls.)
Maybe that’s how space clearing works. Perhaps the sound, incense, or whatever invades the spaces that the ghost considers part of his or her body. So, the entity leaves to protect his or her new form.
Maybe this is why we find more ghostly manifestations around water. Maybe the moisture fills the spaces with a conductive material, and — since we can measure them with EMF — it enables them to function better in our physical world. After all, at least 50% of our bodies are made up of water.
The fact is, in ghost hunting, we’re often making this up as we go along. We’re starting with anomalies, and trying to imagine explanations that fit and (sort of) make sense.
There are days when those explanations resonate as real possibilities.
The next day, in a different light, it seems like speculation piled on top of fantasy.
I think speculation is important. We must ask the “what if” questions.
However, remember this: When we take fantastic theories too seriously, we’ve lost the our focus and our integrity as researchers.
Go ahead. Ask the “what if” questions. They’re important.
Then, keep looking for better answers.
