The Science of Ghost Hunting and Paranormal Investigation Part IV: Science and Technology
Written on December 02, 2012, 10:18:34 AM by Brian Parsons

"…when you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth". –Sherlock Holmes “The Sign of Four” (and variations in several other books)

Sir Arthur Conan DoyleSir Arthur Conan Doyle’s character Sherlock Holmes was definitely ahead of his time when it came to science. His methods predated those used in real forensic science and his way of solving crimes was based on simple logic and observation. Ironically, this quote is typically used to qualify a paranormal group as "scientific" as well as to “verify” a photo, video, or personal event as “paranormal” since no definitive explanation was immediately found, however this search may not include...

Science v/s Paranormal Investigation
Written on May 24, 2012, 12:06:29 AM by Gaurav Tiwari

Science v/s Pseudo Science

 

Since the day I started investigating the paranormal phenomena, many have asked me if Science supports paranormal existence, or if Science has proven the existence of the spiritual realm. They are usually the same people who can die for their Religion and God, but can quickly turn a disbeliever when it comes to Paranormal. Many people also think that God and Ghosts are two opposit things. When it comes to the rationalists in India, I have personally felt that they are only interested in ridiculing new ideas, or the experiences that millions of people generally have, all across the globe. These Experiences even happens when Science and education are so developed that it has elevated the sense of superiority among human beings that We know almost everything...

EVP Experiments: Upping the ante for evidence
Written on March 28, 2012, 12:55:37 PM by Brian Parsons

Audio recording technology has come a long way since I started out in 1996. My first recorder was a small radio sized recorder (sometimes called a shoebox recorder) shoebox recorderthat used regular cassette tapes. One tape could record 30 or 45 minutes per side with two sides, but the rule was to not record on both sides as “bleeding” of voices or noises could potentially occur. The tapes produced their own white noise in the form of a mild hiss along with any mechanical sounds of the recorder which were usually recorded unless a separate microphone was used and the recorder hidden.    One learned quickly how to lubricate the device to keep these noises to a minimum or buy an external microphone. Working a case would usually mean buying a handful of tapes, although I...

The Science of Ghost Hunting and Paranormal Investigation Part II: Advancement of Technology
Written on April 26, 2010, 12:34:27 PM by Brian Parsons

"Technology has advanced so quickly that it's just a matter of time until the truth of ghosts are unveiled."

Not my words folks and that's why they're in quotes. I agree that technology has advanced in the field of paranormal investigation even since I have been a part of it, but does that mean we are really closer to finding answers? Some seem to think so, but personally I think it actually has set us back a bit.

In my last blog in this series, "The Science of Ghost Hunting and Paranormal Investigation Part I: The Basics of the Scientfic Approach", I discussed the scientific process and how it ties in to our field. While technology plays a part it's not the headliner that many make it out to be, it's merely the supporting cast to a symphony of processes,...

Director of Research - Defining the Role
Written on April 14, 2010, 06:19:39 PM by Brian Parsons

I have always been analytical and have survived on logic since I was a child. To many this may sound like a strength, but I was the quiet kid who sat alone and watched how others interacted. I have relied more on analysis and experience to guide me through life rather than using my gut or taking a leap of faith. I have always searched for an outlet for my analytical and logical ways other than devouring any book I could get my hands on. I never had much in the way of belief for the anomalous fields, since I had learned Parapsychology, UFOlogy, and Cryptozoology were based on guess work and random spontaneous experiences and were nothing short of junk science (with the word science used loosely).

Then, in 1996, I got my first taste of...

The Science of Ghost Hunting and Paranormal Investigation: Part I
Written on March 12, 2010, 10:55:18 PM by Brian Parsons

I orginally wrote part of this article for the Handbook used for my group, Ohio Paranormal Investigation Network, a few years later I added some more detail and put it on a blog. I felt it was important that my investigators realized what the bottom line was, besides helping clients, and I wanted to share the scientific philosophy with the field that seems to use the word "science" and "scientific" very loosely at times. Last year I shared the link of the blog with the members of ParaNexus and the article was included in the September-October, 2009 edition of The Journal of Anomalous Sciences. This was a big moment for me and made me realize that I owed it to the field to share as much as I knew about the process of science. The earlier version of this article made it into my first book, "Handbook for the Amateur Paranormal Investigator or Ghost Hunter: How to Become a Successful Paranormal Group". I am in the process of finishing a Part II to the series and will...
