The Ganzfeld Experiment
11th March 2018 Sarah Chumacero 2064 views. 0 comments. General, Paranormal Investigation.
The Ganzfeld experiment is a controversial experiment originally used by parapsychologists to test telepathy and clairvoyance. Over the years it has since been adapted by paranormal investigators with the thought that by depriving our senses, we are potentially opening up our minds for a spirit to deliver us some sort of message or have a paranormal experience. The question is, does it work? Depends who you ask.

Why hasn't the paranormal field advanced as technology has evolved?
7th March 2018 Sarah Chumacero 855 views. 0 comments. General, Paranormal Investigation.
We certainly live in a technological age. Paranormal investigation in the modern day is overcome with different gadgets reading all sorts of things that we assume can help us detect the presence of a spirit. So why is it then paranormal researchers are turning back to the old school methodology? Why haven't we made any ground breaking discoveries along with the advancement of equipment? Perhaps it is because modern day investigators aren't looking for the same things researchers once were and are more motivated by an experience than validation?

Politeness VS Provocation
3rd March 2018 Sarah Chumacero 544 views. 0 comments. General, Paranormal Investigation.
To provoke or not to provoke. It can become a really heated topic amongst investigators. Just because we don't see them, a lot of people believe that spirits were once people and so should be treated with respect. While this is true, how do you then deal with the negative nasties that weren't so nice in life either. It's all about picking your moments.
