This will be brief, because it’s far too easy for me to shift into geek mode when I’m talking about paranormal phenomena.
Many hard core skeptics demand “proof” of ghosts and hauntings.
Often, they’re the same ones clinging to outdated Newtonian physics, where everything can be documented in cause-and-effect terms.
If they use a trigger or deliberately provoke a ghost, they insist on a uniform result every time.
Otherwise, they seem certain it’s all a hoax. Or your imagination. Or some variation of pareidolia.
And that seems to put their minds at ease.
However, an increasing number of professionals in math and the sciences are now revisiting the hard evidence that something odd is going on at haunted sites.
Sure, it’s ever so easy to brush off orbs as “just dust” and ghostly phenomena as “just your imagination.”
But with enough experience – especially first-hand – and the extraordinary measurements and recordings by some ghost hunters, some skeptics are ready to revisit their former opinions.
As much as I advocate using low-tech ghost hunting tools (or no ghost hunting tools at all) and leaning into your personal experience at haunted sites… Well, yes, high-tech devices serve a purpose.
Oh, they’re not without controversy, even among their creators like Bill Chappell, developer of Ovilus ghost hunting equipment, the Paranormal Puck, and so on.
Whether you’re a skeptic or a believer, it’s time to take a closer look at the anomalous readings and recordings we get at haunted places.
Let’s bring maths and sciences into the conversation. They may contain even more evidence that what we’ve observed is indeed paranormal.
