Stumbled across this article on the Public Parapsychology website and thought it was worth sharing with our PPI forum family members:

Hey Brian,
How much do you think that this article claims is valid?
Sounds interesting...Go on.

Hi Tim,

I'm not exactly sure. Some of the information appears to be legit, while the rest appears to be pure speculation. Of course, in this field, speculation is often quoted as fact.  :)

Just how every person is different, I think the same holds true for apparitions and how various individuals actually visually see them, feel them and just observe them in general.  Make sense?

How funny.  This is the exact site and exact article I got my recent "Apparitions" thread postings from.

I've always wondered if the degree of manifestation of an apparition (solid, see-through, filmy, etc) is directly proportional to the amount of "fuel" or "battery power" (EMF, emotion, etc) that it has to draw off of.

Me too, Lillie.  Absolutely.

Lillie, I think that's a good working theory...especially if you're of the mind that an entity is energy.

Damian, I find I can understand things easier by equating them to mechanics or something nutsy and boltsy or battery-ie.   ;D

So, if an entity IS energy, I wonder if entities are different from one another in how much energy an individual entity needs to manifest itself (i.e. one can manifest itself where there is no power sources but only the environment like a cemetary or old castle, etc...as opposed to a house with electricity, water, etc.)

I like it!  I'm of the same mind.
