Fiona Broome's offbeat ideas about ghosts and ghost hunting

Are you interested in super-speculative, “fringe” ideas about ghost hunting?

If so, get ready for some of my more extreme “what if…?” theories.

Where These Ideas Came From

Since the 1990s, friends and I have discussed some extreme ideas about ghosts.

For example, what if they’re not dead?  What if EMF isn’t ghostly energy, but something far more interesting?

I kept those theories separate from my other research. I was sure that many readers – who don’t know me in real life – might think I take these ideas 100% seriously.  (I don’t.)

So, I created a small website called The Broome Theory.  I shared the link with just a few people I figured might want to share their thoughts, as well.

(Origins of that name: Back in the late 1990s and early 2000s, among fellow ghost hunters, I’d regularly offer zany, “what if…?” ideas. It was fun. We’d build on each other’s ideas, and some of them actually seemed credible. Soon, when I’d start describing my latest speculation, a couple of friends would joke, “Uh-oh, it’s another Broome theory.” And we’d all laugh.)

But – oops – almost immediately after I launched The Broome Theory site, snarks and troll-like comments flooded it. Wow, so much for keeping a low profile, right?

(This was before they shifted gears and decided to guffaw at our equally speculative Mandela Effect conversations, instead.)

I removed the Broome Theory site and quietly placed some of the articles here at Hollow Hill.

Taking Risks…

Now – late in 2020 – I’m seeing some of these concepts more widely accepted. So, I’m going out on a limb and restoring the articles so they’re easier to find.

I’ve also added a few related, “what if…?” articles, as I’ve researched these topics. (Those articles have asterisks [*] before each link.)

These convey the same “what if…?” ideas my friends and I have discussed for decades. And we still don’t have reliable answers.

EMF Reality Check – Are EMF Spikes Really Ghosts? (2008)

*What if EMF is Leaking Into Our Universe? (2008)

*EMF – Stronger than Gravity? (2011)

Ghost Hunting, Portals, and EMF Surges (2015)

Ghosts, Parallel Realities, and Time-Slips (2015)

Even older (2006), Ghosts and Molecules, about “shadow people”

And, less relevant (maybe) to ghost hunting:  Tinnitus as a Marker (2015)

(I’ll continue to add more articles like this, as I find them on my hard drive or in dusty corners of this site.)

And, since I’m testing some new video software, here’s a sort-of TL;DR version of what the articles suggest.

  1. Thanks for putting these back. I like the Broome Theory site. Speaking of theories, I heard about an interesting one, recently. Luis Elizondo, former point man for the AATIP government UFO conspiracy, recently recommended a short story, with the implication that some of the ideas in the short story might be real. Sorry, I forget the name, but I remember the idea. Basically, the idea is that ghost-like creatures are the ones who are really in control of planet Earth. When aliens come to Earth they don’t seem to be interested in communicating with humans, much to the surprise of the humans. Instead, the aliens seem to be more interested in communicating with the ghost-like creatures who are the ones that are really in control of the planet. Unlike us humans, who can’t communicate with the ghosts under most circumstances, the aliens, presumably, have much better technology that allows them to communicate with the ghosts in a more reliable way. Ever heard of that short story? I think that I remember that it came out in 1973. I remember all of that, but I can’t remember the name. I’m terrible with names. If I ever remember the name I’ll post it.

    1. Hi, Mark! Thanks for the comment. I always love hearing from you.

      And that concept – ghost-like creatures who are influencing (if not controlling) events here – is new to me.

      Wow! SO many layers to this idea, and now I definitely want to research it. (The 1973 context makes so much sense, on so many levels.)

      Sure, it’s very sci-fi and speculative, but the pieces fit together in astonishing ways.

      Thanks again, Mark! Your contributions to our conversations are always appreciated… a lot!

      Cheerfully, Fiona

      1. I found it, Fiona! Someone mentioned it on Twitter with respect to Elizondo’s recommendation. It is a novella called, “Chains Of The Sea,” by Gardner R. Dozois, and it seems to be getting sold in one book along with two other novellas. The full title of the book seems to be: “Chains Of The Sea: Three Original Novellas Of Science Fiction.” I never actually read it, myself, so I may have gotten some of the details wrong. I also found another article about it, and about Elizondo and TTSA with respect to it, but I suggest that you read the story before you read the article, unless you don’t care about spoilers.

        1. How very cool, thanks, Mark! I’m not sure I’m ready to read that. The concept sounds really creepy. (I know… it’s kind of ridiculous that I’m a ghost hunter but I’m also creeped-out by sci-fi stories. Especially if they seem relevant. lol )
