Nearly a decade of intensive ghost vigils have not produced compelling evidence on the true nature of ghosts or hauntings (see yesterday). So could they be improved to become more useful?
One reason for the nonappearance of compelling new scientific evidence about ghosts from all those vigils (that I didn’t mention yesterday) is that such experiences may be purely subjective. We know that ghost sightings caused by misperception and hallucination, which form a large proportion of those carefully investigated, are certainly subjective. Even those ghost sightings that may be caused by something paranormal could be subjective too. It has been proposed, for instance, that ghost sightings may be caused by telepathy or retrocognition.
So we need to consider the possibility that the nonappearance of unambiguous ghost recordings from all those ghost vigils might simply be because they are not actually possible! In that case, we will have to wait until it is possible to display and record what people are thinking, a technology which is not far away, to finally record ghosts….
