Paranormal Network archive – Weather – Orb comparison. A case of mistaken identity

(Original article available at http://www.paranormalnetwork.co.uk)

Here are a number of example photographs taken in a variety of weather conditions. Which show evidently how natural conditions coupled with the camera  flash create on screen anomalies which have sparked the “spirit orb” conversations.

Orbs are created as a digital camera artifact, with the flash being so close to the lens anything in and around the lens becomes illuminated creating light balls, strange reflections, coloured lights – the multiple colours are generated much in the way a rainbow is created. And is a brilliant example of this, light is made up of different wavelengths each a different colour of the spectrum. As light is scattered through a droplet or moisture it splits into its colours.

 

 

 

A particularly heavy downpour in Autumn 2007, see how the light captures the raindrops thought to be the “teardrop” but are in fact spheres/globules

Moisture and water kicking out droplets caught here as “Orbs”

 

The act of waving incense photo captures wave of the smoke being generated.

Paranormal Network took this image a Mind, body and spirit festival a number of “psychics” and those with connections to information none of us living folks here, apparently a whole communication network of truth – they revealed this image to be that of a actor who had played Phantom of the opera, which is why there is the “theatre” mask. Another said great sadness as it is the lingering spirit of as girl who is on the verge of becoming an angel due to her pure nature. A third said angry and vengeful spirit who was following me and that i needed a clearing and a healing which would cost me just 25pounds. What this was really was a “sage jostick” being waved in woodland.

A trip to Matlock, looking under the bridge with the water flowing beneath and damp moist conditions seemed a great photos and low and behold “orbs”.

Finding resource references across the ages of strange vampires encounters, which echo UFO abduction reports.

Have found somes reports of what is termed a Ludverc from Hungary /Romanian lore. Which is usually bunched with the accounts of vampire mythology. However if viewed from a modern perspective could mean something quite different, when reviewing the accounts. Take a look at these examples

Where a ball of decending light, sometimes being described as a shaft of burning light from the sky. A being of light enters the house. Soon after the females becomes pregnant.

Similar reports of the phenomena, the being of light takes on the form of a dead spouse, deceased member of the community or those thought missing.

Report on an elder woman who sheds her skin to reveal a being of light, who causes people to pass out, one reference shows that blood was being taken from the “victim” and they woke during the procedure.

Children being born and didn’t look like a person, indeed looked like “the devils” who came at night. Children being taken from their beds at night.

Women who were pregnant suddenly despite being heavy, wake up in the woods not longer with baby, no mention of blood.

A report of a man, who woke up to find a strange short being cutting his kidney 0ut, but was unable to move.

A curious report of vampires from Mexico, Between July 1977 to Nov 1978. Over 40 reports of the same phenomena occurrence of people getting hit by red beams of light that burned their chests directed by what and I quote “Looked like a man in a diving suit carrying a pistol”. Blood tests conducted on the victims revealed abnormally low levels of hemoglobin. The chest area struck by the red light deteriorated over time.

In my opinion, these don’t sound much like vampire reports.  They read like modern day what is termed “alien abduction phenomena.”

Reflections of inspiration

Growing up, most influences come from the family and the people we interact with, friends, teachers, neighbours and those we see on the television. The late great Carl Sagan was an indirect inspiration. That is I kept hearing his words growing up, without realising who he was. As I came through into adolescence every boy dreams of going into space, I would read books, scan the newspapers for space and technology news to the bemusement of many others at school. While also paying increasing attention to books of archaeology. National Geographic, Readers Digest, Osbourne books and the like.

One particular book called Mystic Places Mysteries of the unknown published by Readers Digest in 1988 which my mother brought stands out in my memory. stonehenge_strasserMust have read that book a thousand times. Vivid images of the mysteries of Stonehenge, Mary Celeste, the flying Dutchman, close encounters – indeed a picture was an artists impression of a silver-suited humanoid figure with large eyes looking through the car window at a terrified elderly couple haunted me for years, Mystic Places was my first encounter with what is known as the Ancient Alien theory. Including a detailed graphic of the sarcophagus lid from Palenque in central America, which took many years to excavate the earth which filled a single staircase going into the pyramid. The lid depicts what appears to be a figure, sat inside of a flying apparatus, his hands and feet manipulating instruments and complete with fiery exhaust.

At primary school where I attended Highlees Primary in Peterborough, in Year 4 (I was 8-9) my teacher was a wonderful middle-aged well spoken woman called Mrs Green and the adjacent classroom run by Mrs Jewitt would get together on a Friday afternoon. Bringing together the students and tell us a mystery and allow active discussion with the students. Stories such as the Bermuda celesteTriangle, Mary Celeste, the U.S.S. Aldridge, Life on other planets and what it would be like, the pyramids of the Giza plateau. I am ever grateful for this time, can be certain that in todays education allows not room for critical thinking and open discussion of topics considered fringe – despite their place in the psyche, embedded into history and their yearning to be talked about.

As a child, prior to the discovery of books, the first source of an unusual encounter was from my mother, she would tell me of a vivid spectral visit she would experience regularly when she was around 12. My mother is the eldest of 4 children of Madge and Stanley Lander. My grandfather Stanley was in the forces as a young man, a chauffeur and driver to top brass. With the family growing up, he resigned during the late 60s. They moved to Turves, a village of only 16 houses of the time either side of a B road leading out of Peterborough towards Cambridge. They had made a swap with one of my Granddads friends in the Army, whose father was seeking a move. As his wife had recently passed away and the house too big, but perfect for Madge, Stanley and the 4 children. An ideal swap. Without going into a lot of detail. My mother would tell me, that during the night her door would open and being a light sleeper she would wake up to ask who it was, thinking it was her mother. This happened frequently. She also began to notice jewellery would disappear from her jewellery box on the mirrored dresser. One particular night, she woke up to find an elderly lady sitting on the bed. Mum said the lady said, “Don’t worry, I’m just doing the cleaning, just having a rest”. Mum described her vividly, was very keen to state she was as real as anyone else, and had touched her. She wore her grey hair in a bun, a polar jumper, a pinafore apron and a pair of checked slippers with fluffy pompoms on them. Upon telling the family in the morning, she was laughed at and no one believed her. It was noticed a handprint was left on the mirror of the dresser. Jewellery box open, and a number of jewellery were missing a St Christopher necklace, a mother of pearl necklace and a charm bracelet.  No-ones hand matched up to the print and no-one would own up to the jewellery. r5024_y

Stanleys friends father Albert Palmer, whom the house was owned by previously would come over for Sunday dinner every week. The topic came up at the dinner table. When asked to describe the elderly lady, the friend was unanimous that it was a perfect description of his late wife. The following weekend, Albert came over again – bringing with him something quite unexpected. In Mrs Palmer Jewellery box, it was discovered to be the missing items from my mothers jewellery box. Whether the visits were the result of an over active imagination of a 12 year old girl, a dream which the brothers, her mum and dad had neatly labelled the encounters under. Jewellery somehow was transported from a house in Whittlesey to a residence in Grantham, which is around 30 miles away.

Suitably programmed to be looking into the curious from a young age. However the story of the spectral elderly lady was a huge impression, it’s not necessarily in the way you may imagine. My first question once I had heard the story when around 6, was regarding the jewellery. “How did the jewellery leave the “house?” My mind as immature as it was at the time devoid of the greater wide view of the world, was looking at the solid object and considering how it passes through the walls of a house. In my mind, I was seeing the image of the jewellery passing through the walls and across the landscape. Was it teleported? The handprint on the mirror, how and why did a ghost leave something well… physical.

It is the questions of the hows and whys does it happen, that are the most interesting. Which these are questions that run through my mind, when someone tells of an occurrence. Take for an example of the 8 common phenomena of a phantom hitchhiker. Why would an apparition appear at the side of a road? Then there’s the physical impression they have, they physically interact with the door, the car light when the door is open is “on” the person this means the photons were being reflected off something physical,  how did they have mass as they sat down in the car, have a “solid” appearance, then a short way down the road they disappear from the seat.

Often I’m asked “How do i become a investigator?”, “What do I have to do to become a researcher?” of which the answer is, build your knowledge base. How can one give structured sound advice, if one does not know the information surrounding the questions being asked.

In the last couple of years, we’ve somewhat stepped away from active investigations. But have become more an observer and trying to gain insight into the actions of alleged investigators. For instance, why are they using “x” piece of equipment? What data do they hope to gather? Of the data gathered during an investigation whether, video, audio, photographic, device data and recorded information how is this analysed? Is it available for review by external professionals? What are the groups intentions for the recorded data. Why is where we are today with Projects like Project WIRGOOT aiming to survey how groups conduct investigations, and what is done with the information gathered.

Giving presentations and talks around the county. Focusing as well on other aspects of the unexplained, rather than just ghosts, because there is more to the paranormal than just ghostbusting.

Engima talk

Evening went very well, the goal of generating a lot of discussion across a wide spectrum was certainly realized.
Videos of Carnac, Mohenjo Daro and Darinkuju.

Psychical experiments of remote viewing and telepathic projection had interesting results.

Conducted a double blind telepathic experiment where 2 participants faced a non descript wall clear in mind to receive symbols from a zener card set, while the other attendees in the room focused on sending the symbol to only one of them. Of which the recievers didnt know, who was the “directed at” reciever.
Went through 3 randomly chosen cards.

Second experiment was remote viewing, where a sealed box with a object within was placed in an adjacent room. A guided mental exercise to go to the box and to “go inside” discover what the object is. Then come back to thr body and then describe what they saw. Yielded some interesting results!
With an agreement to get together to try some more at later date.

OFCOM set the rules for what “psychics” can do and can not do on TV.

After years of hokey and mary loving dick today OFCOM the official broadcast commission presents new rules on how so called psychics are presented  on television. Could this spell the end of the likes of Psychic TV and Sally Morgan?

Most advertising is regulated by the Advertising Standards Authority, but participation television – where viewers are
encouraged to call in, and pay, still falls to Ofcom. The rules remain the same, but are
subject to interpretation, particularly when it comes to what it’s acceptable to promise
viewers for their money.
The clarification ( PDF, surprisingly funny) makes it clear that Ofom doesn’t acknowledge the existence of any higher power, other than the Ministry of Fun. Anyone claiming to be in touch with such a power (other than a recognised deity) must be very clear that they’re doing so
“for entertainment purposes only” and not just with a banner at the bottom of the screen either, it has to be stated by the
presenters.
Even those who are worshiping one of the more-universally- recognised gods can’t go
around promising miracle cures , but those claiming psychic powers are also prohibited from predicting the future, offering personal (life- changing) advice or
claiming to be in any way accurate – and they can’t say they’re able
