The final word, Ghosts don’t exist?
This according to an article by Ross Pomeroy of Real Clear Science from February 6, 2017
Physicist Brian Cox, an Advanced Fellow of particle physics at the University of Manchester stated that ghosts do not exist. This was his conclusion after working at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).
Cox is quoted as saying:
“I would say if there’s some kind of substance that’s driving our bodies, making my arms move and legs move, then it must interact with the particles out of which our bodies are made. And seeing as we’ve made high precision measurements of the ways that particles interact, then my assertion is there can be no such thing as an energy source that’s driving our bodies.”

In essence, ghosts can not exist
What a relief, after 40 years of study and investigation into life after death the revelation that ghosts don’t exist allows me to move on, maybe taking up ballroom dancing or possibly axe throwing… NOT.
Hold on, when you have been researching the paranormal for as long as I have you tend to see these claims every so often. Normally it’s a college or University academic looking for funding or some attention, or a narcissist who just likes to hear themselves talk, or in this case this scientist who is most likely linked to a group of scientists who believe there is nothing new out there and everything has already been discovered, they just know everything there is to know.
According to the article ghosts can’t exist because they can not detect energy that would account for them. Hmmm, they can’t detect dark matter either but its okay to believe that exists. No, ghosts aren’t real, we have to just dismiss the 1.2 billion (give or take) encounters with the spirit world globally over the last 150 years. But if you want to have fun ask him to explain how the brain works and human consciousness, or my favorite explain love, I can hear the gears grinding to a stop now.
Aliens vs Spirits
Our last line of defence?
When looking at the phenomena of alien abduction I have to ask what is the complexity that requires extraterrestrials the need to study and abduct humans for countless eons?
To study human physiology surely shouldn’t take an advanced civilization thousands of years to discover what a human medical student can do in six years. If it were to change the human population into human/alien hybrids and understanding what we already know of genetics surely they know more than us and should take no longer than 100 years or so to meet that objective if that were the goal.
So what is it then?
I believe there is a greater mystery, something so complex that it not only perplexes them but also frightens them, the mystery of the human soul.
Over centuries of them exploring our world, materializing in and out of our homes they must have encountered the spirits of our dead. Could it be that ET has no soul and the entire concept causes them great tribulation? It could be possible that they are terrorized by the souls of the dead. Unwanted encounters that frighten them because they cannot be controlled or even collected and can move with ease around their advanced technology.
Is it a Ghost? Or just Mold?
The further frustrations of a paranormal investigator…
Well here we go again. I read with bemusement an article published on April 02, by Levi Winchester regarding researchers found haunted houses were linked to hallucinogenic mold. The story would have been more befitting to have been published April 1.
Mold causes Ghosts? The researchers equated old buildings, ghostly apparitions and hauntings to toxic mold hidden in floor and walls.
This article takes me back to Michael Persinger’s “God Helmet” stating in his research that ghostly apparitions were explained by weak electromagnetic fields
Or Vic Tandy who found that ghosts were nothing more than extremely low frequencies or infrasound causing us to perceive ghosts in our mind.
Apparently there is no end to the money and resources available for those who wish to investigate that ghosts or spirits do not exist.

In several paranormal investigations of haunted locations both members of my team and myself have experienced ghostly activity after we departed the haunted site and went home for the evening. This activity continued at our places of residence. The activity occurred randomly, taking turns at one of our houses then another, over a period of several weeks it would visit different team members.
This I found very interesting, the big question is how did the spirit locate each of us at our private homes?
At first I thought that possibly they hitched a ride in the car, although that would explain them coming to one of our houses it didn’t explain them being at everyone’s house. Five cars all leave at the same time, all go in widely different directions, all ending at different destinations and yet all five were found by the spirit.
Then I thought well could there have been a spirit, which accompanied each of us separately, possibly. But then it didn’t make sense that some would come home with us and do nothing until a few days later or even a week later, we all reported the activity on different days and times, spanning a couple of weeks. Matter of fact no one reported activity occurring at his or her home on the same date as another member.
A Note About EVPs
While conducting investigations involving EVPs and the review of those recorded voices. I find it somewhat funny how the human ego works.
I watch as most investigators quickly assume that whatever is recorded has everything to do with them. It is true that sometimes the spirit has a message to impart to the investigator, however more often that not the message or part of the conversation, I find, is between the spirits and not intended for you at all. The investigator has forgotten or may have never considered that they have deliberately brought in a piece of equipment to be used to eavesdrop on the other side.
Many times it is clear that the message in the EVPs is not for the investigator, I find sometimes this leads the investigator to automatically jump to the conclusion that the haunting is residual and not that of an intelligent spirit. Remember that spirits within a haunted building are not standing around waiting for you to show up, they are actually interacting with each other and doing things regardless if you are there or not, they don’t simply exist for your convenience.
So the next time you label a spirit residual instead of intelligent consider the fact that it is not all about you.
A Brief History on EVP’s
Electronic Voice Phenomena or EVP is the supposed recordings of the dead, voices that are not heard by the naked ear at the time of recording.
Thomas Edison 1920
Scientist and inventor, Thomas Edison, worked on a project to build a device to communicate with the dead. In an interview with Scientific American, October 1920, Edison stated, “If our personality survives, then it is strictly logical or scientific to assume that it retains memory, intellect, other faculties, and knowledge that we acquire on this Earth. Therefore … if we can evolve an instrument so delicate as to be affected by our personality as it survives in the next life, such an instrument, when made available, ought to record something”.
Scientists vs paranormal researchers why are they at odds with each other?
At times I pause and wonder what all the bickering is between paranormal researchers and the scientific community when it comes to the study of survival of the soul and life after death. As a paranormal investigator with more than 35 years of field work I have seen a lot of this arguing and posturing take place, which is okay, at least people are talking. It is when personal objectives come into play that the waters of research become muddied and this allows people to push personal agendas with little regard for the subject. It leaves room for people to fudge the data and place personal gain ahead of everything else and this is what causes the most damage. Everyone has seen some paranormal researchers lie and bring forward false information as evidence in hopes of becoming famous or to make some money. Even science and academia will occasionally toss out junk, making wild claims of finding the perfect answer to ghosts, usually for grant money to keep them employed.
The continuing investigations of Meeting Place of the Dead led me to believe the power of the mind can create monsters.
Your child has an imaginary friend during the day, someone they have created from their vivid imagination, someone that they can play with and share secrets with, it’s just make believe right?
But then something changes, they don’t want to sleep in their bedroom anymore, they explain the monsters are under the bed and in the closet, there’s that imagination again. Or could something else be going on?
Many years ago I developed a new theory on ghosts that I named the memory matrix, within the memory matrix was a plain of existence for spirits called the memory bubble. This is where spirits dwelled. The bubble was developed by the individual from their personal memories thus building a reality for them to exist which would seem not only real but also physical. These memories could create places, people and events from that person’s life long memories, making their existence in the afterlife seem so real that they have no recollection of dying.
A Spirits Reality
It has become clear to me through 35 years of investigating life after death that a very real reality exists just beyond our perception. A reality where the dead live, love, work and fight depending on their situation. A place that is filled with conflicted and sometimes twisted views, where in one moment to them life never stopped and seems to continue with all of its mundane routines, and the next it is full of high strangeness. Some are aware that they are dead and some are not. To explain my theory on this hidden reality I had to create a name for it, to help describe it. Collectively the subject would be known as the Memory Matrix; individually it would be known as the Memory Bubble.
How these realities are formed – Memory
Within the memory matrix the spirit will create a very real and complex reality in which they exist. This reality would include the place they lived as it was when they were alive and would also include all the people they were used to seeing on a daily basis regardless of being living or dead, it wouldn’t matter as the spirit’s own mind would create from memory very real interactions and scenarios giving the spirit the impression that they were very much alive and existing in the physical.

What is it about mirrors that can fascinate and frighten us?
They have been around for thousands of years in one form or another, and over time so many folktales and superstitions have been developed around them. Going back to ancient times mirrors were used to scry, this was a mystics way of seeing distant places, people and the future. The Romans believed that to break a mirror would bring bad luck for 7 years. There were also beliefs that the reflection bore the soul of the individual and by studying the person’s reflection could gain insight into their true nature. It is possible that this belief gave rise to vampires not having a reflection as they would have no soul. In the Jewish faith, it is important to cover all mirrors in a house where someone has died. If they are not covered the deceased may enter a mirror and become trapped, unable to move on. Monks would place tiny mirrors on a small slender stick which they could slide up beside their nose so they could see spirits in the reflection using their peripheral vision. Then we move into newer urban legends like standing in front of a mirror and calling for Bloody Mary three times.
Are mirrors a portal for ghost?
The problems with clearing a haunted house
There are two major problems when it comes to investigators and/or mediums who tell you they are going to clear your home or business of ghosts.
The first problem is they don’t seem to understand the dynamics of a haunting. The majority of haunted locations rarely have one spirit, but rather many. These many spirits, some good, some bad, maintain a balance. The balance can be slightly off thus the reason the owner has called in a paranormal group or medium in the first place. Imagine you are out for the evening and your teenagers are having a party which is getting out of control. You come home, walk in, shut the music off and demand everyone leaves. The first to head for the door are the polite respectful ones who don’t want any trouble. Then the ones who couldn’t care either way depart. You are relieved, except you didn’t notice that really bad one hiding in the shadows brooding. The team or medium tells you job well done and they go home. Now the real trouble is about to begin, the balance is gone and this leftover bad guy has nothing to stand in his way. Your house is now his playground. Good luck trying to get some good spirits to return, it is not going to happen.
Talking Board | Ouija Board
Can a sheet of cardboard be a doorway to the other side?
Four teens gather around the kitchen table, the parents are out and the lights have been dimmed. They huddle around an Ouija board two of them touching the planchette lightly while the other two look on with delight. It moves around the board seemingly answering yes and no questions and spelling out others. Then an answer to one of their questions causes a twinge of fear, they accuse each other of manipulating the planchette, the lights go on and the game is over.
It’s only a game after all…isn’t it?
What is the difference between past, present and future states? Are we, the living more solid than a ghost?
Something to think about…
Before we consider what ghosts might be we have to consider what we are as living breathing humans living in the physical world.
Most people feel through perception of our reality that they have a firm grasp of what we are, not so. This makes it more difficult for us to understand ghosts.
Because of our perceptions we believe we are solid physical beings in a solid physical world; however this is a basic illusion.
If examining the human body, which is made up of cells and the cells are made from atoms and atoms are 99.99999999% empty space, then you are only .00000001% physical.
Albert Einstein’s E=mc2 shows the dense parts of the atom come from nowhere into particle matter and then disappear into nowhere as an energy field. This means you are constantly changing from an energy field to a partial physical form, which hardly exists as dense matter.
The guy on TV that goes around solving people’s haunting experiences has me rolling on the floor laughing. First of all, what is the likelihood that every episode results in him being able to add something to his collection AND solving his client’s issues?
I have yet to find a physics answer to residual hauntings. I “could” be made to believe that an object holds special meaning to a soul that moved on.
If we follow this through, while there is an intersection between universes, the person or spirit could indeed be active, influenced by the fact that the item that holds special meaning. However, for this type of haunting to persist/exist, the intersection would have to follow the object. I do not see an intersection existing simple because an object exists. I find that a physical relationship between an object and an intersection to be unsupported.
I welcome rebuttal over this point. Please feel free to use the comments to do so.
Sèances? Sure. Why not?
We mentioned in an earlier post that clairvoyants and mediums are individuals with sensitivity to the influences of other universes. If such a person were to hold a séance they are quite likely to be able to relate to us information from the “beyond”.
I have to admit there are more folks out there claiming to be able to communicate as such than there are those that are truly able to. But I am confident that, no matter what the ratio, that the legitimate ones do exist.
Since we have determined that loved ones (indeed the spirit of any passing individual) can move on to another universe close in frequency to our own, there is no reason our talented clairvoyants and mediums cannot communicate with them. However, it would be dependent on which frequencies that they are sensitive to.
