Paranormal State – Dead Legends

During this season, the show, Paranormal State, had an episode titled, Dead Legends.  In this episode, the team was investigating reports of hauntings in the Hotel Conneaut in Northern Pennsylvania.  The reason that I am writing about this episode is because it brought up an interesting theory regarding hauntings.  The Paranormal State team could not verify any of the stories related to the haunting.  Therefore, they concluded that the mere fact that over many years, people have been told these stories about specific ghosts that allegedly haunt the Hotel, has created the expectations of the people visiting the hotel that they would experience these phenomena, which in turn actually created the activity of the hauntings by these specific spirits.

This is a very interesting and somewhat unusual explanation for a haunting but it may have some support for the theory that a person’s “Intent” may create paranormal phenomena.  The idea that paranormal activity may not be related to the spirits of those that have passed, but actually are created by the “Intent” or the Psychic ability of the living, has been an idea that has existed within the paranormal community for some time.   While there is no proof that this is the case, there are books that  address this issue.

In the book, The Resonance Key, by Marie D. Jones and Larry Flaxman, on page 158 they refer to Stan Gooch’s book, The Origins of Psychic Phenomena, whereby they list the following quote, “We should probably never finally close the door on the possibility of discarnate or spirit beings existing independently of ourselves…however, with the cautionary note and despite the dramatic evidence of apparently discarnate entities or forces noisily breaking up rooms, starting fires, attacking and severely bruising human beings, and causing some of them to burst into flames, we have, nevertheless…seen persuasive evidence that these entities or forces are directly associated with, and indeed directly produced by, certain individuals.”

I am not endorsing this theory as fact, but it is an interesting area for future research to determine the actual cause of paranormal activity, whether it is the result of the spirits of the deceased or the psychic abilities or “Intent”, even at the subconscious level, of the living.

Digital Audio Recorder – Panasonic RR-DR60

While there are many types of audio recorders, analog and digital, the one that seems to be considered the most prolific at capturing EVPs is the Panasonic RR-DR60.  While this recorder captures a large quantity of EVPs, the quality is low.  Haunted Truth Paranormal has two of these recorders and has captured some very interesting EVPs with them. 

While at Fort Mifflin, I was using an Olympus digital recorder and John was using the Panasonic RR-DR60.  We were in the Casemate where Grant, from Ghost Hunters, saw the face of a man through the window.  This Casemate had been hidden for decades and was only recently uncovered soon before the Ghost Hunter Team did their investigation. 

There is a story that the spirit of a man that was held in this Casemate was a political prisoner. At the time that John and I were investigating, we were the ONLY people in the Casemate and I asked this spirit, “now that the Casemate had people walking through it, do you like the company or do the people annoy you?”  I then asked, “How were you treated?”  Neither John nor I heard any response to these questions with our ears.  On review of the recorders, my Olympus recorder did not have any responses to the questions, but John’s Panasonic RR-DR60 had the following responses:

1) Me – “now that the Casemate had people walking through it, do you like the company or do the people annoy you?” 

     Response – “I Like The Company.”

2) Me – “How were you treated?”

     Response – “Good.”

These specific responses to my questions that were captured on the Panasonic RR-DR60 seem to be too compelling to be a coincidence or  electro-magnetic interference.

Digital Audio Recorders

There are a few new digital audio recorders that paranormal investigators may want to consider testing in the field. The first is the Edirol R-09hr Digital Audio Recorder seen on Ghost Hunters International (Brandy’s new recorder). The following is a link to Brandy’s MySpace page where she describes the recorder in more detail:

The second new recorder is the RT-EVP Real Time EVP Recorder to be released in June 2010. This recorder is made by DAS Distribution Inc., and is designed exclusively for the paranormal market. This recorder is designed by Gary Galka, the inventor behind the Mel Meter series of EMF Detectors. This recorder will have simultaneous record and playback as well as a Frequency Sweep Interface which will allow the RT-EVP to scan the entire FM range of 88.0MHz to 108.0 MHz in about 12 seconds, or 60msec/step. The device can also record while sweeping the FM band. For more information on the RT-EVP recorder, please follow this link:

These new digital audio recorders are the next wave of technology that hopefully enables the paranormal investigation field to be able to advance ITC research.
