Welcome to the homepage of the supernatural research society. We are a San Antonio, TX based team of paranormal investigators that are purely science before speculation, our main goal is to give homeowners peace of mind while keeping people educated on this particular subject with any documented evidence being reviewed carefully from a scientific point of view.
Orb artifacts are captured during low-light instances where the camera's flash is used, such as at night or underwater—or where a bright light source is near the camera. The artifacts are especially common with compact or ultra-compact cameras, where the short distance between the lens and the built-in flash decreases the angle of light reflection to the lens, directly illuminating the aspect of the particles facing the lens and increasing the camera's ability to capture the light reflected off normally sub-visible particles. Consistent with paraphernilia, Orb backscatter has been broadly interpreted as a highly variable range of supernatural paranormal phenomenon without verifiability—including invisible spirits, unxecpected lights, auras, angels, ghosts, energy fields, psycho-energetic artifacts, energy balls, etc.
Electronic voice phenomena (EVP) are electronically generated noises that resemble speech, but are supposedly not the result of intentional voice recordings or renderings. Common sources of EVP include static, stray radio transmissions, and background noise. Recordings of EVP are often created from background sound by increasing the gain (i.e. sensitivity) of the recording equipment.
Interest in EVP surrounds claims that it is of paranormal origin, although many occurrences have had natural explanations including apophenia (finding significance in insignificant phenomena), auditory pareidolia (interpreting random sounds as voices in one's own language), equipment artifacts, and hoaxes. Believers regard electronic voice phenomena as an easy way to communicate with the spirit world. Although some voices are random, others seem to answer questions, thereby suggesting that there is some kind of intelligence involved. TV shows like Ghost Hunters,Ghosts Hunters International, and Ghost Adventures offer great examples of EVP.
A widespread belief concerning ghosts is that they are composed of a misty, airy, or subtle material. Anthropologists speculate that this may also stem from early beliefs that ghosts were the person within the person, most noticeable in ancient cultures as a person's breath, which upon exhaling in colder climates appears visibly as a white mist. This belief may have also fostered the metaphorical meaning of "breath" in certain languages, such as the Latin spiritus and the Greek pneuma, which by analogy became extended to mean the soul. In the Bible, God is depicted as animating Adam with a breath.
Numerous theories have been proposed by scientists to provide normal explanations for ghost sightings. Although the evidence for ghosts is largely anecdotal, the belief in ghosts throughout history has remained widespread and persistent.
