Electro Magnetic Fields (EMF) 'Ghostly Magnetism Theory'
Below is my comprised paranormal theory to Electro Magnetic Fields or EMF as its commonly known.
It wont just be EMF as a whole subject i will be addressing EMF Meters too and having a critical think about their credibility in paranormal research.
Looking at any “Evidence” linking EMF to the Paranormal or if EMF’s only link to the paranormal is people
having paranormal type symptoms around high levels of electro magnetism.
Prior paranormal research EMF meter’s had and still do have a purpose scientifically within engineering, company’s like BT use EMF meters to diagnose issues within electrical wiring, they are used on power-lines and also to measure the levels of EMF from electronic appliances.
Paranormal investigators & Ghost hunters use them for different reasons, the “theory” commonly known to all/most is that “When Ghosts Communicate or Manifest there is changes in the electro magnetic field” or there is “you draw energy out of the environment and get fluctuations on the meter” there is many, so with that said every paranormal investigator carries a EMF meter.
There are lots of EMF results from paranormal teams, often its put down to being paranormal results just because they are in a claimed “Haunted” location and feel a bit strange with a few odd bangs and linking quiet unlinked events into 1 paranormal event, There is different sources of EMF that exist and they produce different kinds of EMF hence why some meters pick up readings from only certain EMF.
Most of the EMF Meters used for paranormal research have been designed to detect EMF-Wave Radiation, They are able to detect different levels of EMF Radiation from sources such as AC – Anything that is powered by AC can manipulate the EMF meter in producing false results.
(EMF meters were designed to detect fields emitted by electrical charged objects)
K-II EMF Meter is a great example of a piece of equipment that has no validation in paranormal research (I spent a lot of time researching these) they only use a single axis.
Single Axis : 1 piece of material inside the meter that reacts to EMF and measures it’s strength, the issue with it only being a single axis is EMF is directional and upon getting a reading you would have to rotate the EMF meter 3 times in order to measure the true value of the EMF.
What Is EMF
EMF is created by using “Alternating Current & Direct Current”.
There is different results for the different currents, for Alternating current (I.e..Microwaves/TVs..) which has a “BACK/FORWARD” motion at 50 to 60 X 1 Second.
The earth’s magnetic field which is a field that most EMF meters are not capable of reading, it is generally considered as “Back-Ground Signal”.
There is many different frequncys of Electro Magnetic Radiation including Radio waves/Microwave/X-Ray and gamma, with them all when the frequency’s increase so does the energy so some of the paranormal theory’s that are used on paranormal reality TV shows and by most paranormal groups does make an ounce of sense.
When something with an Electrical field moves or changes its reaction is to create a Magnetic field and it has the same reaction for Magnetic fields once it moves or changes it creates an Electric field, Hence why Generators can produce electricity and electricity can move electronic motors.
There is EMF all around us everywhere so when paranormal groups say….
“There was no electric in the location and got EMF results – explain that Mr sceptic???!!!”
There is EMF in the walls, under the floors, through the roof … any aeroplanes or helicopters or satellites all can release EMF at any time and no investigator has control of all of them possibilities making it impossible to say it is paranormal, also you can get EMF readings from your own equipment – the human body has EMF, anything conductive could posses a risk for getting a build up of energy over time and can get random changes on your meter, even radio signals and WIFI signals can produce false readings.
EMF & The Paranormal
There is lots of paranormal type experiences being documented through EMF Wave-Radiation (not ghosts creating the EMF or made of it but EMF is manipulating your brain into thinking its paranormal) Lots of people who have been in a high-level EMF zones have reported experiences such as ….
Paranoia, feeling sick, the feeling of being watched, hearing voices, seeing “ghostly” figures, There has been research conducted where EMF that has been positioned around the top and back of the ear and the paranormal experiences were very common.
The above seems to be the only strong link to the paranormal, lots of money is being spent on EMF meters daily by ghost hunters and researchers but even manufactures have confirmed that there is no actual evidence that ghost emit EMF or they can change the Electro Magnetic Field….its all been drafted from yet again shows like Ghost Hunters and Ghost Adventures that have put theory’s in peoples heads then made products on that basis and the rest is history.
Of course the link between EMF and the paranormal pre-dates reality TV, the late Mr price was also investigating a possible link between them but he also found no evidence, so with that noted I don’t think any evidence is likely to pop up soon.
My only use for EMF meters on paranormal investigations now is to measure any fields around my equipment setup to try and illuminate any EMF contaminates to the video or audio.
I would only using a EMF meter on the actual investigation is the location was claimed to have strange feelings, feeling sick, being watched etc….
Often EMF meter is there but its pointless because the only claimed event is hearing footsteps, but spend the whole night with the EMF meter and any readings you get you will have to spend more time trying to debunk the readings from the endless amount of sources or get nothing all night and waste hours investigating and then hours reviewing the video of nothing.
My theory to Electro Magnetic Fields or EMF is that ghosts have nothing to do with EMF, ive spent years researching meters on well over 40 investigations and had lots of explainable readings which I was able to debunk often without much trouble at all, but there was some random times where I thought possibly paranormal often if they were accompanied by EVPs , But now with all the research conduct and what can
give out EMF signals I find that none of it can possibly be linked to paranormal.
The only link to paranormal is the symptoms of paranormal experiences commonly known as hallucinations caused by EMF-Wave Radiation.
My EMF meters now are collecting dust and not to be used other than equipment setup and if any claimed experiences are present at the location im due to investigate.
