Is the internet haunted? An investigation 25/02/2019

"Ghost Hunters on Crack..."

Is the internet haunted? An investigation The internet is full of death. Not just in its news cycles or its serial killer documentaries, but also in the hidden corners – in the content that preys on humanity’s natural morbid curiosity, asking if you want to know which celebrity might’ve predicted their own death. It’s in the allure ...

Ghostology: The Art of the Ghost Hunter by Steven T. Parsons | White Crow Books | Books 21/11/2017

Thoughts turn to Christmas and gift buying. Looking for something for that ghost hunting friend or family member or even as a treat for yourself. May I recommend Ghostology, The Art of the Ghost Hunter.

It's a lot cheaper than an online ghost hunting course and contains more useful information. NB: You won't get a certificate or a signed Xmas card and you definitely won't be a qualified demonologist after reading it.

Ghostology: The Art of the Ghost Hunter by Steven T. Parsons | White Crow Books | Books The study of ghosts - Ghostology, is not trying to capture apparitions on camera, although that is sometimes a part of it. It is not trying to record the sounds and the voices of the deceased or of spirits, although that too is a part of it. Ghostology is the holistic study of a fascinating aspect o...

The long winter nights approach. The perfect time some might think for hunting down phantasmagoric visitors. But it is also the perfect time to settle down with a book and a digestive. May I recommend Ghostology, The Art of the Ghost Hunter.

NB: It contains no actual art by Ghost Hunters but you may find something of interest within the gaudy covers.

Orbs have been making a bit of a comeback lately despite the concerted efforts of rational investigators & the camera makers to kill them off.

So, it might be worthwhile reiterating this research article from several years ago.

Anyone going to the SPR conference next weekend, or the ASSAP conference the following weekend, I'll have my PhD study with me so YOU can take part!

Help Needed.... Please

24/07/2016

If you are aged over 18 I would like to invite you to take part in a research project which I am currently undertaking as part of a Psychology PhD at the University of Central Lancashire.

The study will investigate what people report hearing when listening to sound clips where it is unclear what is being heard. It will look at connections between a number of different personality measures and characteristics and see if these affect what people report hearing.

The questionnaires used in the study cover a broad range of topics, which include attitudes and belief in the paranormal and life after death, religion, loneliness, mood, drug use, and other possibly sensitive subjects.

You should be aware that this study does focus on themes concerning the paranormal and life after death, and if you think this may upset you, you may not wish to participate.

If you are interested in taking part, or would just like to know more, please email [email protected] for further information.

I wonder if we should celebrate 10 years of presenting papers at the SPR Conference by having a small slice of cake in September. 🍰
