​​Inspired by Science  -  Transformed by Experience

From our work, we know for a fact that there are intelligent creatures who can see us and they can hear us.  However, we cannot see nor hear them except under very specific circumstances.  Usually, it's not with the unaided eye or ear.  Cameras with night vision, infrared and thermal processing can sometimes see them.  Most often we can hear them with the aid of any electronic device with a speaker output - radio, telephone, fax machine, computer speakers, tape recorder, dictation machine, and a scanning radio usually called a spirit box.  This list is not complete.  The point is that they are there all the time watching us and we are none the wiser.  They can be invisible when they are "On Earth" meaning they are standing next to you in our space/time dimension, or they can be monitoring and communicating from their dimension which has no concept of space or time.  Probably a more accurate description of them is to say they are:  

              "Disembodied Entities"  

But that is a very cumbersome name.  "Spirit" is the word most often used, as in "Spirit Box" even though that is probably not what they are.  A Spirit is defined as:

The nonphysical part of a person that is the seat of emotions and character; the soul. "we seek 
a harmony between body and spirit"

synonyms: soul, psyche, (inner) self, inner being, inner man/woman, mind, ego, id; pneuma

If spirits are the nice people that died and went into that invisible world, what would we call humans that were monsters?
     Evil Spirits 

On these pages, we will most often refer to entities as 
spirits or evil spirits.  Really bad ones I might call a Demon.   Demons are an evil spirit or devil, especially one thought to possess a person 
or act as a tormentor in hell.  Elementals are just little gremlins that like to play practical jokes - hide your car keys for example. 
Poltergeists like to make a lot of noise and toss things about.  All the knocking in episode one of our series was done by Poltergeists.  How do I know?  "Poltergeist" is simply German for "Noisy Ghost".  You see, for practical purposes, it doesn't really matter because we can never know for certain what we are dealing with anyway.  The theologian Swedenborg said that there are good and bad creatures in the spirit world and their job is to influence us while we are still in the body.  The Scole Experiment confirmed this when a spirit explained what her job was.

 Paranormal Investigation 

Confusing matters further, there are a lot of myths and urban legends passed around in the Paranormal world that people take for granted.  Myths that have no proof, no basis in fact.

Paranormal - Demon - Spirit

Elemental - Entity - Ghost - Apparition

What should we call these paranormal creatures?

And what can I say to our skeptical readers, or people new to the Paranormal?

Here's a great example.  The popular Ghost Hunting shows have said the same thing for years regarding “draining batteries.”  The legend was that spirits need energyto help them manifest, so they drain electricity from batteries and other electronics and use that energy.   Most paranormal channels on YouTube repeat this false claim until it is universally accepted by the majority of sites.

  But I could find NO evidence to prove that ghosts manifest this way.

In many cases where scientists were in communication with discarnate entities, the scientists were told that the entities use a form of energy that our scientists have not yet discovered.  In other recordings the spirits said that they use the energy they bring with them, the energy they find in the natural earth and rock formations, bodies of water, and the energy from human beings themselves.  A spirit's energy is similar to but not exactly the same as electricity.    In another body of work, the spirits said that they have absolutely no use for our electricity, that it vibrates too slowly. (1.) In my Haunted Lake House, I managed to record several incidents of spirits planning an attack on my gear.  The reason is that they are under strict orders to NOT be videotaped under any circumstance.  EVP after EVP has the bosses yelling at everyone to “HIDE” when I come in the room and they announce loudly any camera equipment I am carrying.  They then discuss how to disarm it.  In every case, the best way is to drain the batteries.  So they have discussed this attack very directly and not once in five years has there been even one EVP referring to them needing to use that energy.  The reason is to kill the recording.  It is very popular for gear to be messed up, but the conclusions these ghostbusters draw in paranormal work is often quite wrong.

(1)From: Hans Bender FEG (Felix Experimental Group) Session 3, 25 August 2013 Séance
We are sometimes asked what makes a good medium and usually, we like to answer two things. First, what is the meaning you are usually expecting? This is what he or she wants. Getting knowledge from a higher organized plane of existence; maybe the plane you call the afterlife or the spiritual plane? The problem is that we on other organized lands cannot directly communicate with you. We must grade down [our energy] to do that, but we can communicate with you.

The problem is that we are talking about the level from which psychic structures emerge. It has to do with the problem that a higher organized reality and a parallel-organized physical plane can’t be described with the terminology of your plane. That means every idea you make about the prefield [etheric energy field representing the physical?], every image you make for the pre-field, even if it is an image of the afterlife; these are earthly images. These are earthly ideas. They follow the laws of psychical structure. You are hindering yourself by projecting such ideas within your mediumistic world. You will only receive what you project when you project these physical ideas into where you want to get higher organized information this can happen.

So, get rid of those ideas and open yourself freely and be ready to receive what valuable information might come from these planes and don’t follow institutionalized dogma as long as you want to evolve personally. If you want to be part of an institutionalized church, yes then follow their dogma. If you want to evolve, then open your mind. Forget everything that was told to you. Make yourself empty. Make yourself a vessel so that whatever might come from there will be of value. So, get rid of all these earthly ideas. They cannot fit a higher organized plane of existence. They can never be described in earthly terms.

The second thing we like to answer is [to say] what the medium is actually learning when he encounters the cornucopia of creation that is in the different lands of existence. He becomes humble, humble towards creation, humble towards every creature of creation.

When people ask me what shall I be, a Spiritualist or a Buddhist, we tell him, it makes no matter if you are a Spiritualist or a Buddhist. Just be a good man. Just be a good person. Don’t be involved in politics or these different belief systems. Only gain true compassion between men. Make yourself a free spirit with true compassion because the true compassion gives you the key of (sic) happiness on the plane you are living on. True compassion; just be a good man.

This is my message.  

We follow this general flowchart for conducting paranormal investigations (ghost hunt) of Haunted sites.  We never add anything artificially to the evidence, such as reverb and echo.  Those are the signs of a paranormal entertainer and not of a scientist.
