This actual question was posed to me lately during a meeting, where I was asked what this whole thing entails. In other-words, what is Haunted Scotland’s Raison D’être – ‘reason for being’ – and what is the thrust of the forward movement to be here.
Some seem to think it’s a company, much like the fantastic tour companies that operate in places such as Edinburgh or our friends at History & Horror Tours in Perth. I’m afraid that is rather wide of the mark, and I have no skills in such areas either.
Lately, we have looked at ways to aid people who are using the Echovox System, on their hand-held devices. We have looked at the crucial areas to focus on, and the majority are satisfied that the software is gaining results worth looking into.
The feedback I’m receiving internationally, here at Haunted Scotland, would suggest the device is used by three main groups of people.
So you have the application on your Smart-Phone or PC Tablet and you are ready to rock and roll on location. However, how do you begin you may wonder, and what is the best way to conduct such sessions to get maximum possibility of results.
Like anything in the paranormal world, results are never guaranteed and when they are forthcoming, people rarely agree that such are significant enough.
In yesterdays short article named Does Echovox Work, we spoke about how this application was different from the ghostly fun on android or Iphone applications, that may be purchased through places such as Google Play.
I reassured everyone that we have a good working device that may be used by any researcher or member of the public, with an interest in this type of study.
Members of the paranormal research field get a hard time from many quarters, whether it be about finding extraordinary evidence, which I have shown to be irrational, or due to individuals who are using the field to propel media careers, while they attack all and sundry to reach that goal.
I have also discovered that location owners, or curators, may in fact be playing games also, to boost their own work and place teams against each other with behind-back whispers, or even trying to catch out mediumistic researchers with false information.
It’s simply the cry from the sidelines involving those who prefer theories, in-favour of actions or results. It really is very simple to sit in the armchair and proclaim a whole manner of hypothesises, debunking everything in your path without so much as movement, to take action, so as to experience directly.
Usually such ways of operation are preferred by a whole host of members from what I term, Pseudo-Sceptical groups and organisations.
