Seeing And Hearing The Dead On Your Television

Keep a keen watch on your television screen. You might just see a real ghost or a glimpse of the afterlife. On television, a ghost is an image on the screen which doesn't belong there, appearing superimposed on the desired image. In a more specific sense, a ghost is a replica of the desired image appearing fainter and offset in position with respect to the primary image. Just a glitch in signal reception? But what many report is actual images of dead recognizable family members ghost or spirits Live on the screen. Has This Happened To You?

Story by Mark Goldberg, Artwork by Ricardo Pustanio

Spirits talking through the TV

Many people around the world have claimed to see images of the dead on television. I don't mean old movies or sitcoms of those that have died being played in reruns. But actual images of their own dear departed popping on the screen unexpectedly. Some people watch Ghost cams, just recently the Scifi Cannel set of a panic button for viewers to report live ghost images from the Stanley Hotel.

People watching actually believed they saw live ghost images and would report them as they happened. similar to watching ghost cams on the internet.

Ghost Hunters Live Scares Up Big Ratings For SCI FI Channel Ghost Hunters Live (October 31/November 1, 11pm-5am), a never-before-attempted, live, 6-hour Ghost Hunters investigation delivered impressive Halloween-night. The startling evidence gathered from Ghost Hunters Live will be presented in a brand-new episode airing on Wednesday, November 8 at 9pm, "Best of the Stanley Hotel." Ghost Hunters Live wrapped SCI FI's 13 Days of Halloween marathon, featuring over 100-hours of horror and sci-fi movies, miniseries and originals. The marathon of chills began on Thursday, October 19 and averaged a 1.0 HH rating, 667,000 P18-49 and 690,000 P25-54 in primetime throughout its run. This year's marathon grew +34% in the coveted P18-34 demo, compared to 2005's 13 Days of Halloween.

Ghost Hunters Live revisited the notoriously haunted Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, Colorado for a real-time Halloween-night investigation. As the legend goes, Stephen King took up residence at the Stanley while writing his best-selling novel The Shining and the spooky goings on at the hotel reportedly served as the inspiration for his best-selling tome. Also joining the investigation was special guest from ECW (Extreme Championship Wrestling) - ghost hunting novice CM Punk! According to C.M. Punk, quite a few of the ECW guys have Ghost Stories. Punk believes he may have a Ghost in his house which he calls "Skeleton Bob".

Some claim they have also see Jesus, The devil and what the afterworld looks like. Still others say they have seen glimpses of heaven, hell, and even the future. Belief in the paranormal television broadcast is more complicated than it might seem. Television viewing was not found to be an influence for people who reported real life experience with paranormal phenomena. However, for those who had no such experiences, belief in supernatural beings was related to the viewing of paranormal programming.

People tend to rely on their own personal experiences rather than the media -- when they have those experiences to rely on. When they don't, then the media may become a more important source of information and may become more influential,"Glenn Sparks, professor of communication says.


Common causes of normal ghosts pictures (in the more specific sense) are:

Mismatched impedance along the communication channel, which causes unwanted reflections.

Ghost image captured on Television

"I recognized it right away, this is my mother!" Image of ghost captured on TV sent to us by Michael B.

Multipath distortion, due to the fact that radio frequency waves may take paths of different length (by reflecting from building, clouds, etc.) to reach the receiver. In addition RF leaks may allow a signal to enter the set by a different path, this is most common in a large building such as a tower block or hotel where one TV antenna feeds many different rooms each fitted with a TV aerial socket (this is known as pre-echo). By getting a better antenna or cable system it can be eliminated or mitigated.

Transcommunication (ITC) and Electronic Voice Phenomena (EVP) are considered as part of the physical mediumship, as the spirit's actions also affect the objects, the equipment. Moreover, we can notice these physical effects.

Instrumental TransCommunication, also known as ITC, is the description of a process used to communicate with the dead using a recording device or other electronic sensory system. The best known type of ITC is Electronic voice phenomenon where voices believed to be the dead are recorded through an audio recorder.

"Ghost Image of my Uncle Martin captured from television." Image sent to us by ITC EVP investigator Richard Case.

Other types of ITC have been used including a video camera and television. This form of ITC involves placing a camera at a television. Usually the television is hooked to the video camera looping the signal. Another form of ITC is using television static and recording it for future playback. This was featured in the movie White Noise (film).

When telephones were first used in the late 1870s, many people reported hearing voices from the dead. Many say with Cell Phones the same thing is happening. Many people hear Ghostly messages on their answer phone message playbacks.

It was only a matter of time before researchers began to apply modern technology to the investigation of spirits. Instrumental Transcommunication (ITC) uses televisions to capture images from those who have passed away. Users of ITC believe they are capturing evidence from the other side.

German ITC researcher Klaus Schreiber gathered images of alleged spirits by using a video camera aimed at a television and fed the output of the video camera back into the TV. The continual loop would often show faces emerging from the mist. During one session an image of Austrian actress Romy Schneider appeared several years after her death.

Another strange example from Sweden occurred during the burial of Friedrich Juergenson, when ITC researcher saw an image of a man appear on his TV. He photographed it and discovered after intensive research it was in fact Juergenson.

Strange ITC image captured while video was targeted on television on a blank Uhf Station. Photo sent to us by Greg Meyer." I can actually see skulls and other strange things in the static." Says Meyer.

ITC is not limited to using the television alone; researchers are now using radios, computers, telephones and even fax machines. The application of technology is purely to obtain meaningful information such as voices, images and text. After a decade of research into the evidence, scientists are finding it hard to simply dismiss this phenomenon.

Although noise is a random signal, it can have characteristic statistical properties. Spectral density (power distribution in the frequency spectrum) is such a property, which can be used to distinguish different types of noise. This classification by spectral density is given "color" terminology, with different types named after different colors, and is common in different disciplines where noise is an important factor (like acoustics, electrical engineering and physics).


White Noise

White noise is a random signal (or process) with a flat power spectral density. In other words, the signal's power spectral density has equal power in any band, at any centre frequency, having a given bandwidth. White noise is considered analogous to white light which contains all frequencies.

An infinite-bandwidth white noise signal is purely a theoretical construct. By having power at all frequencies, the total power of such a signal is infinite. In practice, a signal can be "white" with a flat spectrum over a defined frequency band.

The term white noise is also commonly applied to a noise signal in the spatial domain which has zero autocorrelation over the relevant space dimensions. The signal is then "white" in the spatial frequency domain (this is equally true for signals in the angular frequency domain, e.g. the distribution of a signal across all angles in the night sky). The image to the right displays a finite length, discrete time realization of a white noise process generated from a computer.

Being uncorrelated in time does not, however, restrict the values a signal can take. Any distribution of values is possible (although it must have zero DC component). For example, a binary signal which can only take on the values 1 or 0 will be white if the sequence of zeros and ones is statistically uncorrelated. Noise having a continuous distribution, such as a normal distribution, can of course be white.

It is often incorrectly assumed that Gaussian noise (i.e. noise with a Gaussian amplitude distribution — see normal distribution) is necessarily white noise. However, neither property implies the other. Gaussianity refers to the way signal values are distributed, while the term 'white' refers to correlations at two distinct times, which are independent of the noise amplitude distribution.

Pink noise (left) and white noise (right) on a FFT spectrogram with linear frequency axis (vertical)We can therefore find Gaussian white noise, but also Poisson, Cauchy, etc. white noises. Note that the distribution must have infinite variance. Thus, the two words "Gaussian" and "white" are often both specified in mathematical models of systems. Gaussian white noise is a good approximation of many real-world situations and generates mathematically tractable models. These models are used so frequently that the term additive white Gaussian noise has a standard abbreviation: AWGN. Gaussian white noise has the useful statistical property that its values are independent.

White noise is the generalized mean-square derivative of the Wiener process or Brownian motion.

One use for white noise is in the field of architectural acoustics. In order to mask distracting, undesirable noises in interior spaces, a constant low level of white noise is generated.

It is used by some emergency vehicle sirens due to its ability to cut through background noise and its lack of echo, which makes it easier to locate.

White noise has also been used in electronic music, where it is used either directly or as an input for a filter to create other types of noise signal. It is used extensively in audio synthesis, typically to recreate percussive instruments such as cymbals which have high noise content in their frequency domain.

It is also used to generate impulse responses. To set up the EQ for a concert or other performance in a venue, a short burst of white or pink noise is sent through the PA system and monitored from various points in the venue so that the engineer can tell if the acoustics of the building naturally boost or cut any frequencies. He or she can then adjust the overall EQ to ensure a balanced mix.

White noise can be used for frequency response testing of amplifiers and electronic filters. It is sometimes used with a flat response microphone and an automatic equalizer. The idea is that the system will generate white noise and the microphone will pick up the white noise produced by the speakers. It will then automatically equalize each frequency band to get a flat response. That system is used in professional level equipment, some high-end home stereo and some high-end car radios.

White noise is used as the basis of some random number generators.

White noise can be used to disorient individuals prior to interrogation and may be used as part of sensory deprivation techniques. White noise machines are sold as privacy enhancers and sleep aids and to mask tinnitus. White noise CDs, when used with headphones, can aid concentration by blocking out irritating or distracting noises in a person's environment.

Pink Noise
The frequency spectrum of pink noise is flat in logarithmic space, it has equal power in bands that are proportionally wide. This means that pink noise would have equal power in the frequency range from 40 to 60 Hz as in the band from 4000 to 6000 Hz. Since humans hear in such a proportional space, where a doubling of frequency is seen as the same size regardless of actual frequency (40–60 Hz is heard as the same interval and distance as 4000–6000 Hz), every octave contains the same amount of energy and thus pink noise is often used as a reference signal in audio engineering. That is, the human auditory system perceives approximately equal magnitude on all frequencies. The power density, compared with white noise, decreases by 3 dB per octave (density proportional to 1/f).

Brown (or red) noise
Brown noise is similar to pink noise, but with a power density decrease of 6 dB per octave with increasing frequency (density proportional to 1/f2) over a frequency range which does not include DC. It can be generated by an algorithm which simulates Brownian motion or by integrating white noise. Brown noise is not named for a power spectrum that suggests the color brown; rather, the name is a corruption of Brownian motion. Also known as "random walk" or "drunkard's walk" noise.

Blue (or azure) noise
Blue noise's (FS-1037C) power density increases 3 dB per octave with increasing frequency (density proportional to f) over a finite frequency range. In computer graphics, the term "blue noise" is sometimes used more loosely as any noise with minimal low frequency components and no concentrated spikes in energy. This can be good noise for dithering (Mitchell, 1987); retinal cells are arranged in a blue-noise-like pattern for this reason (Yellot, 1983).

Purple (or violet) noise
Purple noise's power density increases 6 dB per octave with increasing frequency (density proportional to f2) over a finite frequency range. It is also known as differentiated white noise or violet noise.

Grey noise
Grey noise is noise subjected to a psychoacoustic equal loudness curve (such as an inverted A-weighting curve) over a given range of frequencies, so that it sounds like it is equally loud at all frequencies. Some people say that this would be a better definition of "white noise" than the "equal power at all frequencies" definition, since white light never has an equal power spectrum, but rather can have a range of spectra, for example that of a 5400K black body.

Noise Generator

The Noise Generator should work on any W98, Win2K, or WinXP box equipped with a Soundblaster compatible sound card. To run the generator, first download and extract the noise generator zip file "NoiseGenerator.zip" to a file, and then run the file "Noise Generator.exe" [i.e. use the Run button on the start menu and specify "Noise Generator.exe" (in the appropriate directory.)

Excerpted from iHalloween: Turn your iPod into a Ouija board CNET Networks http://crave.cnet.co.uk/digitalmusic/0,39029432,49284801,00.htm

When we first heard that occultists were using the new iPod to channel spirits, we had our doubts. Why would ancient spirits choose to manifest themselves in consumer electronics?

The introduction of the Click Wheel alphabet-search system in the new iPod range has opened the floodgates to a new breed of occultist. Not only can the Click Wheel emulate the traditional Ouija board and planchette, but it does so in a small, portable format. Leading Ouija boardists have discovered that the iPod can not only provide the traditional letters and numbers of the board, but spirits are now able to pick songs, or playlists, to convey their messages.

It being Halloween today, we decided to give it a go. Our iOuija board is a new electric pink iPod nano. We placed our fingers on the iPod and our PC Editor invoked ancient chants to open a gate to the world beyond. Once we were fairly sure a spirit had possessed the iPod, we asked it, "What is your name?"

This first effort was unexpectedly successful. It took a while for our fingers to move around the Click Wheel, and the iPod shifted about a bit on the desk (to be expected when it's channelling other worlds). The spirit's name appeared to be 'brad'. We asked brad, "When did you die?"

The results of this question were rather less impressive. Perhaps Brad had become petulant, perhaps Brad didn't want us summoning him and asking bothersome questions. Alternatively, Brad was bad at spelling:

We asked Brad, "How did you die?" Our fingers slipped on the Click Wheel and transitioned to a different menu. Clearly Brad wanted to communicate with us using the medium of song. Our fingers scrolled slowly though the tracks, as it neared the 'M' section it slowed to almost a stop before settling, chillingly, on Murder Incorporated. This was a shock few of us were ready for -- the ghost liked Bruce Springsteen.

We asked Brad some more questions, which he refused to answer in any coherent manner. After a long pause, our fingers shot down the track listing again, spinning the Click Wheel like a demonic merry-go-round. The Wheel settled on Better Be Home Soon.

Brad was telling us he wanted to go. We all took our fingers off the iPod planchette and let Brad return to the spirit world.

The iPod iOuija board works far better than the traditional Ouija board. During future sessions we intend to plug it into a loud stereo system to increase the scary quotient when a spirit picks a track. Let us know how you got on with channelling spirits with your own iPods. Owners of an iPod prior to the latest versions won't be able to use the search feature as a planchette, but they can still let spirits pick tracks.


The Dead Do Speak...

Michael Firman New York

And Michael Firman listens!

On our journey of all that goes bump in the dark of night and the light of day... We are prepared for anything to happen as we explore the world of ghosts, haunting's, and the spine tingling proof offered in EVP (electronic voice phenomena).

I am ghost hunter, a paranormal investigator I live in Dunkirk, New York, I have been a Evp investigator for four years, and what I plan to do with the info I have gathered is to share it with people. I work with two other wonderfully dedicated investigates on the team, Kenny Narducci, and Tim Carrow, both paranormal researchers dedicated to finding new technology to enhance and better understand EVP's.
