We certainly live in a technological age. Paranormal investigation in the modern day is overcome with different gadgets reading all sorts of things that we assume can help us detect the presence of a spirit. So why is it then paranormal researchers are turning back to the old school methodology? Why haven't we made any ground breaking discoveries along with the advancement of equipment? Perhaps it is because modern day investigators aren't looking for the same things researchers once were and are more motivated by an experience than validation?
To provoke or not to provoke. It can become a really heated topic amongst investigators. Just because we don't see them, a lot of people believe that spirits were once people and so should be treated with respect. While this is true, how do you then deal with the negative nasties that weren't so nice in life either. It's all about picking your moments.
What is the Butterfly Effect/Chaos Theory and where did it come from? Does it have a connection with parallel universe? Does paranormal activity have a connection with parallel universes? Just some musings of my own.
An open mind works both ways. We need to be open to the fact that not everything is paranormal, but at the same time acknowledge that sometimes there are things we can't explain. Especially if we are participating in group discussions on social media.
Before K2 meters were invented, old school investigators would use a compass to detect disturbances within the electromagnetic field. Here is how you make your very own compass for the next Old School Challenge.

In the early 1930's, J.B Rhine experimented with subjects to test if it was possible to telepathically send an image from person to person. Here is all you need to know about Zener cards and how to conduct your own ESP experiment with Zener cards.
One would think a car orbiting in space with a mannequin dressed as an astronaut called 'Starman' as a tribute to David Bowie is the stuff a great science fiction parody movie was made of. As ridiculous as it sounds, it actually happened, all the while proving that the Earth is in fact round!
We all love old school. It takes away the bells and whistles and gets to the core of what you are looking for. In the 'spirit' of this, I am setting you an old school challenge. Build your own electroscope and do some tests and experiments in the field. Here is all you need to know about electroscopes and some instructions to get you started.
It is a common theory often talked about by paranormal investigators. We don't know for sure it is speculation so lets look at how and more importantly why would renovations amp up activity (and if it even does at all)
Old school investigators swear by their analog recorders and magnetic tape while new school investigators like the convenience of a digital recorder. So which is better for paranormal investigating? I look at the pros and cons
Doppelgängers 21st January 2018 Sarah Chumacero 1262 views. 2 comments. Famous Paranormal Cases, General.
Do one of your friends or family ever tell you “I saw your exact double today. They looked just like you!” Have you seen someone's double while out investigating? What is the doppelgänger phenomenon and what are the theories surrounding it?
When most people go out on their own to do a paranormal investigation, one of the first places they tend to go is a cemetery. The thing is, there usually isn't much going on and sometimes it is something that should be left alone.
When reviewing photos, we are always telling people to look at the EXIF data because it is a valuable tool to understanding the conditions in which a photo was taken. I explain what the EXIF Data is, how to access it and what things you should be looking at when reviewing photos for 'paranormal evidence'.
