Most ghost hunters are familiar with EMF. It has to do with magnetic forces.
That’s not news.
But… today, I saw a video that might explain our “must get out of here” reactions at some haunted sites.
The video showed a floating disk. It was cool.
I also saw a connection to paranormal research.
After reading about the floating disk, I dug deeper. I looked up the Meissner effect.
That’s where I saw a description of a familiar physical reaction, described as a pushing away effect.
Skipping past the confusing technical information, it means this:
Your body is creating a low-level magnetic field, and your body also responds to the magnetic energy of the earth.
Some people are more sensitive to that than others.
So, here’s what I’m pondering today:
What if something paranormal is generating an unseen physical field that has a Meissner effect?
What if our bodies are responding on a such a low level, we sense that we’re being pushed away, but we interpret it as something psychic?
Or, what if spirits (or whatever “ghosts” really are) are deliberately creating fields that repel us?
Maybe the Meissner concept has nothing to do with that “let’s get out of here” (or, “Dude, run!”) reaction.
But, when we feel that impulse at a haunted site, maybe something physical is going on… whether it’s deliberately created by unseen forces, or not.
If you have some thoughts about this, I hope you’ll share them in comments, below.
Here’s what I was looking at, that started this line of thinking:
