Theory of Relative Time Structure, and How This Could Affect
Okay, this is a bit of a tricky
It is widely believed that young and adolescent children are
more susceptible to the paranormal, and therefore tend to
experience more in the way of paranormal events than more
This is believed to be because they 'do not know any better.'
In other words, they do not have the blinkered life experience
that tells us to dismiss such events as figments of the imagination.
We are all taught to rationalise what we see from a very young
As a paranormal investigator,
I have found that the majority of 'spirit people' who try
to communicate during a vigil are the young. Again, maybe
this is because older 'spirit people' do not wish to communicate
with someone they do not understand. This became apparent
on a recent investigation where a young girl came through
and said that she was with her mother and grandparents. She
stated that they were all there in the house with us and she
could easily communicate with them as well as being able to
see them. Throughout the investigation she was the only one
to come forward, which made me wonder why. Maybe she came
forward because she didn't know any better, maybe it was curiosity,
or maybe I’m way off with this theory!
This leads me onto the second
part of the theory.... I asked myself the question:
If this girl is here, and can see and speak with her mother
and grandparents, are they still 'living' here?
If you think about it, in a great number of investigations
communication among spirits becomes apparent, as does limitation
of movement; i.e.; if an area wasn't built during their time,
they do not seem able to go there.
This makes a lot of sense when you look at it in a logical
and physical sense, but not when you think of the stereotypical
'ghost' who follows you around. I must point out at this time
that the young girl I have mentioned did not venture to the
newly added third floor of the vigil location, but seemed
to follow us around the lower floors quite happily.
The most interesting part of
this theory is, unfortunately, the most open to scepticism.
We have proved on many occasions that people in the spirit
world are able to communicate freely, but tend not to make
themselves known to us very often. There are contradictions
to this of course. It sometimes seems like we are the outsiders
trying to look into their world, so what if that was actually
What if.... You hold an investigation in a house, and instantly
a young child comes through to you, who claim to be there
with her family, but you are unable to communicate with them.
The girl stays with you all night, constantly referring to
her family, and their movements. Is it her innocence or ignorance
that allows her to communicate with us without realising that
what she is doing is wrong, just as with a living child communicating,
or seeing, a deceased person. Which leads me to the BIG question.......
Does the 'spirit world' exist
in much the same way as our own? In the sense that they still
live their lives alongside us, and we are the intruders who
occasionally appear to them, as much as ghosts occasionally
appear to us? Those of you who have seen the film "The
Others" will dismiss this instantly, but please take
some time to consider it... It's not quite as crazy as it
