Where Did this Ghost Equipment Come From?

Mostly from the presumption that there are electrical and magnetic forces that make up our lives and this planet.

Most of the more popular pieces are/were originally made for other professions, electrician takes a lot of them.  EMF ElectroMagnetic Field detectors (K2 meters et al.), Gauss meters, and the like.  Plumbers have temperature sensors as do window and insulation installers.  Infrared, once relegated to spy and military uses, is not only commonplace, but many know how to rough shod a camera or electronic binoculars at home.

Our cameras are only getting more intelligent, computer programs and depixelization is more commonplace and face recognition software, streaming video from phones.  Ghost investigation was not the original intent, but then again, Viagra was a mistake too.

On occasion you will find something more specialized... a dowsing rod for instance, originally believed to detect metals and then water for those 'sensitive' to a pointer; and there may be something to it.   Although Martin Luther in 1518 denounced it as witchcraft, some still practiced it and it became popular again.  Who is to say one person is or is not sensitive to the magnetics or even the static electrical influences of the earth and can feel when there is a change around them?  Just as some people are more susceptible to migraines or pain in their joints when the weather changes.

 There is also the newer “but not really” telephone to the dead.  Originally Francis Grierson (Jessie Shepherd ) and Thomas Edison had a patent on a phone that might talk to the dead.  It never worked.  Several years ago someone said they perfected it, and many variations of deciphering “white noise” has come up.  Whether there is any basis, the jury is still out.

 EVP (electronic voice phenomena) is a similar functioning white noise decipherer.  So how do we know we are right?  How do we know it means anything?  The same way all science (and that includes medicine) is proven or disproven, time and research.  Writing everything down or filming it to document what works, what doesn’t, can it be repeated consistently, can there be other factors at work? Or is it all a mistake?

For those who believe, no explanation is necessary, for those who do not, none will suffice.
