Shadows Within Shadows

August 7, 2013 in communityblog, Featured, ghost, paranormal, Weird Science

There are a number of ways in which an entity might present itself. They might appear as an apparition, or be heard as an EVP/DVP. They might cause a drop in temperature or touch an investigator. They might even communicate through EMF. However, compelling evidence is extremely scarce despite all the methods that paranormal investigators have used in attempting to … More


Research on the Fringe

August 1, 2013 in communityblog, ghost, mystery

I really get a kick out of the strange twists and turns that research on the fringe can provide. A few days ago, I noted that Silent Hill: Revelation 3D featured the Lakeside Amusement Park. Years ago, there was both a Lakeside and a Lakewood Amusement park in Barnesville, PA. Given that the first Silent Hill movie featured other PA … More


Tech Quick Tip: EMF Probe Part 2

July 23, 2013 in communityblog, ghost, paranormal, Weird Science

If you thought the EMF probe we talked about in the previous Tech Quick Tip was a one trick pony, you’re in for a surprise. The pickup coil used in the last article was designed to pick up the varying magnetic fields of a telephone speaker and record them. So it stands to reason that if you want to listen … More


Tech Quick Tip: EMF Probe

July 20, 2013 in communityblog, ghost, Weird Science

Let’s say you’ve found an EMF hotspot that you simply can’t account for. You can’t find any wiring and by all rights there should be no power in the area. Before declaring it paranormal, you can run a quick test to see if it’s likely man made. To do so, you’ll need a laptop and a ‘telephone pickup coil.’ The … More


Magnetic Field Sensory Augmentation (or ‘How to Give Yourself Spidey Sense’)

July 19, 2013 in communityblog, Featured, Weird Science

There are a whole host of senses beyond the typical five, including heat, pain, and balance. But sometimes that just isn’t enough. Perhaps you want to enhance your own perceptions to take in more of your environment and interact with it in a unique way. Or you have some vision of the future that you would like to see today … More


EMF in Theory and Practice: Part II

July 10, 2013 in communityblog, ghost

In the first part of this series of articles, I posited the ‘why’ of bringing along an EMF meter on an investigation. To concisely summarize the previous results: because they measure electromagnetic fields, of course. What I neglected to mention was the ‘how’ of the matter. Now I plan to take some of the mystery out of the magnetic field—or … More


EMF in Theory and Practice: Part I

July 10, 2013 in communityblog, ghost

In the palms of paranormal enthusiasts worldwide lies a small, unassuming, handheld device. Innocuous as it appears, still the apparatus is able to render the invisible into a physical form. In
a typical scenario, this tool is affixed to an investigator for hours
on end while the individual walks the ground of a haunted locale. At some point, the needle … More

Since the Asylum episode aired, the forums have
been flooded with posts enquiring about Frank’s Box, the (alleged)
‘telephone to the dead.’ How does it work? Does it actually work? Why does it sound like a bad radio? What about the suggestibility of the listener? Read on for all this and more.

Thankfully Frank Sumption has the plans for the More
