Ghosts Ghost Hunting and Quantum Physics
By Robbin Renee Bridges
of the benefits of a lifetime of afterlife communication is that I know a
lot about ghosts … what they are and what they’re not.
For instance, they’re not “caught between worlds.” And they
don’t need us to help them “move on.” They’re exactly where
they’re supposed to be. You don’t honestly think that God, the Creator
of the Universe, would leave their eternal fate in your and my hands, do
CAN say that they are “earthbound,” but that’s because their
consciousness never left the earth. And when you die, yours won’t
either. We’re all right here together forever. That’s just the nature
of the afterlife. Yes, knowing the laws of the afterlife can make these
things a lot clearer.
I’ve been researching what folks believe about ghosts and hauntings.
I’ve investigated the investigations. Repeatedly I’ve read, “We
don’t use ouija boards, séances, mediums or occult methods.” Yet
it’s common for ghost researchers to accept, as an underlying condition
of their investigations, the erroneous claims of psychics, mediums, and
referring to such concepts as “caught between worlds,” “unfinished
business,” “earthbound souls,” and ghost children in distress.
At the same time ominous warnings urge vigilant caution in case
non-human demons and malevolent entities are encountered. Oh, and don't
forget the Hollywood expression, "Go to the light." Scientific
research can’t be conducted properly on a foundation of superstition.
me tell you some things that are true about ghosts. Actually there are
only two kinds of ghosts: real and not-real.
real ghosts are everywhere. They’re in your home, in your car, in your
school, and in your dreams. Ghost researchers call these interactive
ghosts. I call them soul-ghosts, or disincarnate souls. I don’t care for
the term, disembodied because they do have a body. We just can’t see it
for the same reason that we can’t see sound waves and ultraviolet light.
They’re outside the range of our sentient boundary.
are interactive. They reach out to you, and you feel no fear …
absolutely none. They envelop you in a blanket of warm fuzzies. Real
ghosts can be mistaken for angels. This isn’t a paranormal experience.
It’s a supernatural and spiritual experience.
not-real ghosts seem to be everywhere too, but only for people that
believe they exist, or at least believe that they might exist. They rarely
bother unbelievers. Ghost researchers call the not-real ghosts …
residual ghosts. These ghosts
seem to defy the Law of Conservation of Matter and Energy because they pop
in and out of existence like virtual particles. The appearance of this
type of ghost can be explained by quantum physics. From the Copenhagen
Interpretation, which states that nothing is real until you look at it, to
the holographic theory of the universe, all ghosts abide by the laws of
that experience residual ghosts say that they seem to be caught in a
time-loop replaying the same scene over and over. The above mentioned
physics also apply to residual ghosts but with the addition of
Schrodinger’s equations. For every “now” that we experience, a
positive wave flows into the future and a negative wave flows into the
past like concentric ripples created by a rock thrown into a pond.
fact that some people experience residual ghosts is due to normal
functions of human consciousness. Although some might rather think of it
as a “glitch.” Residual ghosts are unusual and fascinating experiences
with natural causes.
a few more types of not-real ghosts are poltergeists, demons, and shadow
people. Abnormal psychology applies to poltergeists and demons. The
physiology of the eye accounts for shadow people.
what’s the truth about ghosts? Do they exist? Yes, of course they do.
Can the scientific method be used to investigate them? Yes, they use
measurable amounts of energy. Can you record their voices and photograph
ghosts? Yes, but one needs to be alert to pattern recognition tendencies.
science of ghost investigation has the potential to make a huge difference
in a society still tormented by superstition and fear. You have the
equipment. You have the rationale. And you have the compassionate desire
to help others.
