I don’t believe that ghosts are “just energy.”
If they have energy, we may be measuring that ghostly energy as EMF. We may be photographing it as anomalies.
At the moment, I don’t think anyone has reliable evidence of that.
I believe that if ghosts are real — actual spirits — they have a consciousness. They’re unique individuals, and each one finds unique ways to communicate with us.
If you’ve seen the Patrick Swayze movie, “Ghost,” you’ve seen how — as a ghost — he had to learn to interact with the world he’d left behind. It wasn’t easy. He had to channel his energy.
Is that an accurate portrayal of what ghosts deal with, trying to cross the gap between the living and those who’ve passed on?
I’m not sure.
At the moment, we’re following any paths that ghosts are able to use.
- Sometimes it’s through EVP.
- At other times, they make noise or get a flashlight to turn on and off.
- Some have learned to communicate with talking devices such as the Ovilus, Frank’s Box, Ghost Radar, and so on.
Others are able to share impressions with psychics, mediums, and sensitives.
However, as communications devices, many of those range from tedious to unreliable. The tools are far too primitive.
And, whether it’s a recording, photograph, or someone’s impression, skeptical critics can debunk them. Sometimes, effortlessly.
Now, I’m about to sound like the geek that I am.
Can we use computers?
First, remember that computers are based on binary activity. That is, something is on. Then it’s off. It’s all zeroes (nothing) and ones (something).
Maybe the on/off flickering of a flashlight or EMF surges with K-II device could be filtered into zeros and ones.
Anything that can produce zeros and ones can convey complex data with the right interpretive tools.
At this point, the issue is speeding up the data transfer. And how do we explain this to a ghost, even one from the 20th century?
(That was a rhetorical question. This is exactly what several researchers and engineers are working on. The question is: Are we making this too complex? Are talking devices worth the effort? For now, no one knows.)
Ghosts… energy or something else?
Something is creating the anomalies. We’re not sure what.
Energy seems to be involved. We can measure it with a variety of devices, from EMF meters to thermometers.
However, is that energy connected to consciousness? And, is it what we call a ghost?
For now, we don’t know, but something is interacting with us. That’s all I can say with confidence.
