Visual disturbances are something common we experience during investigations. When we get tired, our brain does some strange things. One of these can be altering our visual perception where things can seem smaller, larger, closer or further away than they actually are. This is called Alice in Wonderland syndrome.
In this instalment we head into the Dining Room and ask the question, 'what is up with that mirror?'
When roaming the halls of what was once a gaol, it is not uncommon for there to be displays and stories of former inmates. What is particularly un nerving, is when they have on display a death mask. The Old Melbourne Gaol in Victoria is full of them. So what is a death mask and why would you cast a mask of someone who was executed? What has it got to do with phrenology?
Normal means what is considered to be typical or standard. Para means beyond or alongside. Paranormal is obviously beyond what we consider to be normal. So then, what is Xenonormal?
There are a lot of accounts written centuries ago of encounters with ghosts and poltergeists such as the Drummer of Tedworth and the Devil of Glenluce from the 1600's. It is thought however the first written account of a ghost was written sometime before 113 AD by Pliny the Younger in one of his famous letters.
The witching hour, dead time and the devil’s hour are just some of the terms used to describe a time in the dead of night. Between 3-4am is considered by some as the time most likely for all things that go bump in the night to come out and play. What is the origins behind this and is there any truth to it?
You glance down at your watch, and there it is. The same time it always seems to be. For some people it is 11:11. For other people it is another time. What is the meaning behind this phenomena? Is it synchronicity or is it just a case of co-incidence?
What exactly is a ghost? Is it the spirit of a person that once lived, is it a shift in time or even an alternative dimension? What if a ghost is really just us? Maybe its psychology or our body reacting to the environment around us. Here are some of the theories as to what a ghost actually is. What are your thoughts? What do you think a ghost is?
We talk about the paranormal sometimes with certainty because we believe within ourselves that there is some sort of afterlife. The fact is that it is unproven by Science. The question is though, is the world actually ready for it to be proven as fact?
We talk about using things like the 'Singapore Theory' and Sound to experiment and communicate with the paranormal. What cannot be 'recreated' however is emotion. What is Emotional Transference? Does an emotional connection play a part in our interactions? Is emotional projection a factor and how can we use all of this to our advantage?
