It is theorized
that paranormal entities (ghosts, spirits etc) are at least in part based on
or composed of energy. This theory is strongly supported as many encounters
with the paranormal coincide with measurements of relatively high or unusual
energy levels (electrical, magnetic, thermal etc) at the same time and
location. It is
theorized that entities somehow tap into available ambient sources of energy, drawing
on them to help constitute and manifest themselves.
think of energy in the form of electricity. Our modern world is full of high
electric sources. But there are other sources of energy that are similarly
potent and occur naturally. Two such sources are solar and geomagnetic.
Solar energy is most commonly thought of as simply
light. While light is a component of solar energy, the sun also emits a constant
stream of highly charged particles that shower the Earth everyday: X-Rays, Gamma
Rays, Cosmic Rays, Alpha radiation etc. It is these high energy particles that
interact with the atmosphere and the Earth's natural magnetic field that cause
the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights).
us better than 99% of these particles are blocked by the Earth's magnetic
field and filtered by the atmosphere (see the movie "The Core" for a fictional
example of what would happen if the magnetic field stopped). It is theorized
that ghosts and spirits might be able to use this constant shower of high
energy particles as an energy source to manifest themselves.
isn't constant. The sun has periods of higher intensity emissions at certain times than
"Sun spots" and "solar flares" are periods of higher, more intense energy
emissions. Scientists have been determined the sun goes through a 20 year
period of generally high solar activity, then 20 years of relatively
lower/lesser activity, then the cycle starts again (as of writing this article
in 2006 we are in the middle of a 20 year up cycle in solar activity).
For these reasons
Long Island Paranormal Investigators tracks and notes solar activity during
our investigations. This information is provided by NASA (the National
Aeronautics and Space Administration) by satellites (at the time of writing
this article the GOES 8 and GOES 10 satellites are used) in orbit. The different
NASA solar activity classifications. The following is from the
The X-ray Solar status monitor downloads data periodically from the NOAA Space Environment Center FTP server. The
previous 24 hours of 5 minute Long-wavelength X-ray data
from each satellite (GOES 8 and GOES 10) is analyzed, and an appropriate level
of activity for the past 24 hours is assigned as follows:
||Solar X-ray flux is quiet (< 1.00e-6 W/m^2)
||Active: Solar X-ray flux is active (>= 1.00e-6 W/m^2)
||M Class Flare: An M Class flare has occurred (X-ray flux >= 1.00e-5 W/m^2)
||X Class Flare: An X Class flare has occurred (X-ray flux >= 1.00e-4 W/m^2)
||Mega Flare: An unprecedented X-ray event has occurred (X-ray flux >= 1.00e-3
The designation "Mega Flare" was chosen by Kevin Loch when the status
monitor was created on March 4, 1999. There is no "official" designation for
flares in this range.
By noting solar
activity during periods of our investigations we hope to determine whether or
not there is in fact a clear correlation between increases in paranormal
activity and solar activity.
above, the Earth has it's own naturally occurring magnetic field. This
magnetic field is generated deep inside the Earth. Scientists theorize (no one
has been the thousands of miles to the Earth's core to know for certain) that
molten metal flowing and swirling around itself under intense heat and
pressure (and probably high natural radiation) form a massive electromagnetic
field. This is the field that causes compasses to point North.
paranormal investigator it is theorized that paranormal entities might be able
to tap into the Earths magnetic field as a constant energy source. As with
solar activity, geomagnetic activity isn't constant. There are periods of
greater electromagnetic emissions that others. NASA also monitors and tracks
this data. The following is from the
|Quiet: the Geomagnetic Field is quiet (Kp < 4)
|Active: the Geomagnetic Field has been unsettled (Kp=4)
|Storm: A Geomagnetic Storm has occurred (Kp>4)
As with solar
activity by noting geomagnetic activity during our investigations we hope to
determine whether or not there is in fact a clear correlation between
increases in paranormal activity and geomagnetic activity.
As of writing
this article the early analysis of solar and geomagnetic activity during LIPI
investigations does show some correlation to paranormal activity. That is, it
does appear there is frequently an increase in paranormal activity observed
and paranormal readings on instruments collected during periods of higher
solar and/or geomagnetic activity. Not all the time, but often enough. However, much
more data needs to be collected and analyzed before any formal conclusions can
be published. Long Island Paranormal Investigators is continuing our research
on this subject.
