Our scientific approach
The scientific PI approaches an investigation with an open mind, collects and examines as much relevant evidence as is reasonable for the claim being investigated, develops hypotheses, and tries to falsify them. Yes, a scientist tries to falsify, not verify, his hypothesis. If you set out to verify your hypothesis you are very likely to be misdirected by confirmation bias. You will look only for those things that confirm what you believe and you will systematically ignore those things that might disconfirm your belief. To keep an open mind, the scientist, like a good detective, must not form hypotheses too early in the investigation, as the tendency of all of us is to confirm, not disconfirm, our hypotheses. Unless you are lucky, and your first guess happens to be the right one, you run the risk of building up a convincing case for a false claim. (The study of criminal profiling offers examples of the dangers of forming hypotheses too early in an investigation.) The importance of trying to collect data that is relevant to the investigation in such a way that one's biases don't lead one to ignore important avenues of investigation cannot be overemphasized.
A scientific PI also knows the purpose and limits of the technology he or she uses in the investigation. The main tools in the PI's toolkit should be critical thinking and a healthy skepticism. If he brings a camera or tape recorder to the scene, he uses them for documentation, not as tools for identifying "spirits" or "demons". If you're collecting data from measuring devices, you have to take multiple samples at different times on different days. The good scientist works first at ruling out natural and obvious sources of phenomena. When a gate closes behind him, he doesn't think 'the ghost of grandma', he thinks wind or gravity. When a rapid thumping or scratching noise is heard above the room, he doesn't think 'the ghost of a murdered guest'; he thinks squirrels or rats, or tree branches scraping the roof. When a temperature change occurs, he does not think 'Satan is here'; he thinks wind draft or an architectural feature that needs exploring. When he feels a presence, he might think infrasound rather than a ghost. When he sees something that looks like a light or a human form moving without visible cause, he might ask 'is my brain tricking me? Is there a physical source for these perceptions?'
A scientific PI does all the necessary groundwork before actually setting out to a location, including historical research and interviewing people. One example should suffice to illustrate this point.
Be your own skeptic, Don’t believe it until you see it, hear it or smell it.
Collecting your evidence could be the most important part of your research.
Most common evidence collected are photographs, videos, and recorders, or EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena)
Otherwise known as EVP, electronic voice phenomena is the recording of mysterious voices from "beyond." Mankind has long believed that it is possible to communicate with the dead. Attempts to do so have been made over the centuries through oracles, séances, mediums, and psychics.
Today, with a variety of electronic equipment at our disposal, there might be an easier, more effective way.
When taking pictures, We all know to make sure it’s not raining, no dust in the air, no camera straps, no smoking on the premises and watch for cold weather. You want to catch as much evidence as you can, set the shutter speed at a fast speed. Make sure you focus on the room size and not too many objects. You night vision camera I see in the dark and can pick up things we cant see. Below are examples.
Using other tools in conjunction with your photographs.
For instance, you could use an EMF gauge in conjunction with your photography.
Most people do this anyway, but a lot of researchers don’t and most new investigators don’t know any better.
This way you could present your evidence as, “Every time my EMF gauge spikes a reading that supports paranormal phenomena, I have captured smoke like mist on the film”.
That is a much better way to present evidence then, “Look at the strange mist in these pictures”.
The EMF gauge offers a scientific backing for your evidence.
The same would work with thermal probes or any of the paranormal adapted technology we use. As seen below.

EMF (Electronic Magnetic Field)
Paranormal investigators must be skilled at evaluating sensory data and be well trained in evaluating data based on observation or testimony. They should also know the nature and limits of their technological equipment.
Many PIs use an EMF (Electro Magnetic Field) measuring device. EMF meters detect electromagnetic radiation. You can get a pretty sophisticated one for about $150, although you can get a standard ghost hunting kit for under $50. Any hand-held EMF meter has a limited range. It can only detect objects in the physical world that produce an electric or a magnetic field within its range. If ghosts produced an electric or magnetic field, they'd be indistinguishable from non-ghosts. So, unless the ghost you are looking for is also something like a cellular phone, a microwave oven, a police radio, or a light bulb, you are not going to detect it with an EMF device. And if the ghost is like those things, how are you able to distinguish it from one of those things? If you wear a white lab coat while carrying an EMF device in a haunted hotel, you might impress some people that you are indistinguishable from a real scientist, though you'd probably be more impressive if you just used the tools every investigator should rely on: critical thinking and logic.
Spirits and Technology
The belief that spirits manifest themselves in physical ways is rooted in superstition from time immemorial. The idea that scientific instruments can detect spirits is a recent development, of course. One of the earliest such devices was invented in 1854 by the American chemist Robert Hare (1781-1858). He developed an apparatus he called the Spiritoscope, designed to detect mediumistic fraud. Hare's design was to test Michael Faraday's claim that unconscious muscular movements (ideomotor action) of séance participants made tables tilt. In the process of testing his machine, he became a spiritualist convert.
Hare's machine was not designed to detect spirits directly, however. He seems to have assumed that if he couldn't detect unconscious muscular movements of someone trying to contact a spirit to move something, then the spirit was actually present. (For more on similar attempts by scientists to detect spirits, see my "Short History of Psi Research.") Hare's technique is still used by some TV PIs. They place an object in the "haunted" place and ask the "ghost" to move it or do something with it to prove to those present that the ghost is there. If this technique sounds rather inane, that may be because it is.
A ghost box is a communication tool used by investigators to speak to the other side. Typically, a ghost box is a modified portable AM/FM radio that continuously scans the band. When on, it is believed to create white noise and audio remnants from broadcast stations that entities are able to manipulate to create words and even entire sentences.
Imagine being able to pick up a phone or a device like it and dial-up The Other Side. Answering on the other end is someone who is no longer of this world — they're dead. This is the ET “call home” technology, which I nicknamed DigCom for Digital Communicator. Yes, imagine having a two-way conversation with someone on the Other Side. Have you ever wanted to speak to a deceased family member, now is your chance with the Digital Communicator.
Now it is possible with the Digital Communicator, but who is on the other end of the call? Are they ghosts of the dearly departed or perhaps interdimensional beings, or perhaps aliens who are communicating with us via the audio frequencies from UFOs.
Can you really telephone the dead? Will the dead talk to you? The answer is yes! Just like EVP, the spirits are not always around to speak to, but near the full and new moons, they seem to be most active. They could be the dead speaking, they could be interdimensional beings, they could be aliens, no one knows for sure.
The Radio Shack device when modified becomes the Digital Communicator and is a controversial new tool that evolved from research in the field of ITC, or Instrumental TransCommunication, which is dedicated to real-time, two-way bridges for voice and image by the use of electronic devices. The previous Radio Shack radio, P-SB7, has the capability to speak back, we now have this new Radio Shack radio that can be modified so ghost voices can be heard. Examples below.
No one knows why this technology can pick up ghost voices. Many theories exist, but none are proven. The sweeping of radio frequencies allows the reception of ghost voices. The ghost voices are heard in between radio stations so the ghosts are NOT using exiting audio voices to form words. This is a totally new science and is yet to be explained, but it does work?
Parallel dimensions, Magic Dimensions: Personal Transformation Through Magic, Miracles and Quantum Mechanics. When we talk about parallel dimensions we are not speaking of an exact duplicate, but of near duplicate dimensions. For example, I have red hair in this dimension so in other parallel dimensions, my hair might be brown, black, or blond. If I am right handed here, other dimensions I may be left-handed. Near-duplicate, but not exactly the same. These dimensions may overlap into our dimensions much the same way as the spirit
While this is speculation, dimensions will overlap into this dimension at peak geomagnetic conditions. Scientists have now confirmed the existence of at least eleven other dimensions. We have taught that the spirits of the dead exist within their own dimension that is the nearest to ours. Accounts of spirits or ghosts walking through walls instead of the doorway perhaps in their dimension, the wall is a hallway or doorway, but in our dimension, it is a wall. Spirits tend to create the reality they live within which often overlaps into our dimension.
Can we speak to spirits using ghost boxes and apps? science has given us an opportunity to communicate to the dead or otherworldly phenomenon. Here are some of or all the equipment we use to communicate.
Other tools and equipment
The Rem Pod utilizes a mini telescopic antenna to radiate an independent EM field around the device. It is believed that spiritual energy can manipulate, distort, and influence such an EM field. To activate the REM feature, one must simply extend the antenna and press the white power button located on the bottom next to the 9v battery. The four LEDs will blink twice as they go through their diagnostic routine which verifies the system is working correctly. When another energy source or spirit comes into close proximity to this unit and its emanating power, an audible sound and LED lights will illuminate indicating that a generated field of energy has been detected. The bear gives the same effect but just as much fun for the children spirits.
Thermal energy is the energy of motion of the atoms or molecules within a Thermal energy is the energy of motion of the atoms or molecules within a matter.
The matter is made up of particles or molecules. These molecules move (or vibrate) constantly. A rise in the temperature of matter makes the particles vibrate faster. Thermal energy is what we call energy that comes from the temperature of matter. The hotter the substance, the more its molecules vibrate, and therefore the higher it's thermal energy.
For example, a cup of hot tea has thermal energy in the form of kinetic energy from its vibrating particles. When you pour some milk into your hot tea, some of this energy is transferred from the hot tea to the particles in the cold milk. What happens next? The cup of tea is cooler because it lost thermal energy to the milk. The amount of thermal energy in an object is measured in Joules (J)
We cannot discuss thermal energy without touching on Temperature. Heat and Temperature do not mean the same thing.
The temperature of an object is to do with how hot or cold it is, measured in degrees Celsius (°C). Temperature can also be measured on a Fahrenheit scale, named after the German physicist called Daniel Gabriel Fahrenheit (1686 – 1736). It is denoted by the symbol 'F'. In Fahrenheit scale, water freezes at 32 °F and boils at 212 °F. In Celsius scale, water freezes at 0°C and boil at 100°C. Examples of equipment we may use are below.
