Overtoun Bridge – Why Are Dogs Jumping

At Overtoun Bridge, Milton, West Dunbartonshire we have a very peculiar case of dogs allegedly jumping from a set point upon the bridge. We were there to ask the question: Why are they doing this?.

There are a varying degree of suggestions from a host of experts in their chosen field, these must be respected fully and placed in front of us as possibilities. Some favour a natural explanation, while others take the route towards possible unexplained phenomena.

Paranormal Research Top Tips!

If there is one thing – I’ve learned – during my time dealing with paranormal activity, it is that experiences had by the general public – or researchers –  might not be captured by the recording equipment.

Actually, to go a step further, we could even be actively Investigating, and not experience anything at all.

Does this mean the place is not haunted or the witnesses have suffered some type of mass hallucination?

Experiencing Death: An Insider’s Perspective

For millennia, human beings have wondered what happens when we die. What is the first-person experience of dying and being brought back to life?

Technological advances in resuscitation science have now added an intriguing new chapter to the literature of “out of body” or “near death experiences” by eliciting detailed and vivid accounts of those who have approached the threshold of death. However we might seek to explain such phenomena, it is no longer tenable to simply dismiss this accumulating body of first-hand experiences. Can these experiences be explained through the lens of biology and neuroscience? Continue reading

Protect Your Paranormal Research & Observations

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.

Keeping in mind, I am not speaking of true scepticism and those great flexible minded individuals, who help drive forward real information. Here we talk about:

Echovox Base-Station Created

We are always looking for ways to improve paranormal observational sessions here at Haunted Scotland. Not all improving reflects in better paranormal evidence or ability to gain any contact from the non-physical, but it can help those members of a team or research group have an easier time while experimenting.

It is no secret that over the past few days, we have embarked on some additional testing of devices, such as the Echovox App, via the Samsung Galaxy S3….

Echovox – Spirit-Box Application

Tonight I took the plunge, I am looking to test this application for the next 12/18 months both personally in the office here and on location, where I will dedicate a good 15 minutes per visit if conditions are suitable.

Echovox is a phone application that works in a similar way to the Spirit-box, possibly allowing non-physical energies to manipulate the sounds and words loaded on the application.

I will be looking out for relevant words but not one off’s, more in-depth sentences or specific phrases will be what interests me or bang on, without doubt, interaction.
