ESP and the new age

ESP has a predominance of attraction with people of the new age movement,  seemingly simply because it is something that is new and has a lot of questions to be answered. When he comes to science there are difficulties in understanding ESP, and all the particular actions because the practical side of science requires objective rather than subjective testing.  The brand of the data recorded by sides is of the object nature rather than subject nature. Therefore science needs to be able to prove or disprove ESP. This is something…

ESP and déjà vu

What is déjà vu and is it a real phenomena. There are a lot of people who think there is a link between ESP and déjà vu. Most people go out and about in a routine oblivious to how much information the brain is actually taking in and processing. Most of what we process consciously is noise and we aren’t really aware of the details associated with the perception of what we understand. Just because we experience what we perceive as real, it isn’t necessarily something that we are able to…

ESP and remote viewing

One of the many reported benefits of ESP is remote viewing. This is exactly what it sounds like, viewing an event or object from a remote location. This is an area where there has, and continues to be a lot of interest in by government intelligence agencies around the world. If it is possible, there would be a great way to be able to gain information from your enemies without having to physically be there. There have been many reports of tests being done during the Cold War and even…

ESP

ESP, or Extra Sensory Perception is one of the areas that has been researched again and again, without any absolute conclusion about weather it is real or not. The main thing that ESP represents is people being able to detect things with abilities other than the main 5 senses of sight, sound, vision, taste, and smell. This is why it is referred to as extra sensory. One of the main thoughts that enable this to happen is that people are believed have what is called the third eye, which enables…

Summing up ghosts

Summing up ghosts, is a very difficult thing to do in just a short entry, so I will just outline my personal understanding. Basically a ghost is a spirit that is no longer associated with a living body. This does lend some merit in the belief of an afterlife where we or at least our spirit, can last forever as is the seemingly common background of most religious practices. As the force or spirit of the body is a separate entity,  but part of life, is seem plausible that the…

Ghost ships, part 2

Another famous ghost ship is the Flying Dutchman. The Flying Dutchman is one of the legendary Ghost ships that can never make port and is doomed to sail the oceans forever. The myth is likely to have originated from 17th-century nautical folklore. The oldest extant version dates to the late 18th century. Sightings in the 19th and 20th centuries reported the ship to be glowing with ghostly light. If hailed by another ship, the crew of the Flying Dutchman will try to send messages to land, or to people long dead. In ocean lore, the…

Ghost Ship

There is a legend of a ship named the Mary Celeste that was found abandoned with full sails but no sign of anybody on board, which is possibly the best known Ghost ship.

Cartoon Ghost

One of the more unexpected places to come across ghosts is in cartoons. Probably the most popular and easily recognised character as a ghost is Casper the Friendly Ghost. The well known Cartoon ghost. Casper was created in the late 1930s by Seymour Reit and Joe Oriolo. Initially intended as the basis for a 1939 children’s storybook, there was little interest in their idea at first, but rights to the book was sold to the animation division at Paramount Pictures Famous Studios. The Friendly Ghost, the first Noveltoon to feature Casper, was released…

Haunted Locations

In several locations around the world there are tales of buildings being haunted. Many of these are no more than local lore, but over time some have become more well known and are reportedly referred to as being the most haunted location in the world. I believe this is because the local community would like to consider itself as being the best there is, but there can only be one most haunted place in the world. I have no doubt that there are many candidates with some being more well…

Ghost hunting

A very popular activity at present is ghost hunting. Interest in this activity has probably increased due to the popular Ghost Hunters series by SyFy Channel, promoting The Atlantic Paranormal Society, known as TAPS. While entertaining this program does provide some general information on equipment that may be useful in going ghost hunting, such as digital voice recorders to record any sounds, Thermal cameras, and even electromagnetic detectors to pick up stray EMF sources. While, as I said, this is mainly for entertainment, there has been some interesting studies, and…
