Miscellaneous Articles - EMF (electro-magnetic field)
Written by Bob
A paranormal presence is thought to generate an EMF which can be detected by a hand-held meter. One theory put forward as to why this could be the case is - at the point of death, the brain's electrical activity (the personality and memory or, depending on your beliefs, the "soul or spirit") departs the physical body as electrical energy.
Some laboratory research has
offered up an alternative explanation for why "hauntings"
are often associated with EMFs by showing that certain EMFs can, in
some cases, affect the human mind and produce paranormal-type hallucinations.
From a scientific standpoint, detection of EMFs by a hand-held meter is far from an indication of a paranormal presence. There are too many other possible origins of EMFs which, to eliminate, would require large amounts of sophisticated and expensive monitoring equipment, even then the proof would be far from conclusive.
