spheres of what ??

Postby brett » 13 Aug 2009, 04:03

right then kiddies - for your further amusement - the final tale of paranormal daring do as promised - and the final one of where i GENUINLY believe there was something paranormal - like i have said - been on many investigations - found little that would even stand up to being taken seriously by us "believers" - let alone skeptics ( so you see i am actually quite sceptical ( please note spelling ) about a lot of whats presented as evidence myself ;)

any ways this ones quite involved soooooo - please try to keep up :lol:

firstly a couple of photos - to explain WHAT you are looking at here - these are a scanned original and a close up sorry if the second one is on its side - but you can copy it to your photos and have a better look if you wish :

Image


these where taken during random photo shoots in my house ( i do this because it is active ) - now at the time i took the first one ( the original ) i did not see this object ( and again its NOT photo shop before any of you start ) - however my late wife who was on the loo at the time came into the bedroom a little later as i was having one of those WTF ?? moments and said "you will not guess what i have just seen ?? - to which i replied "this " showing her the screen of the digital camera - she claimed that the object came through the door , which was behind me and traveled along the wall disappearing trough it - WELL < i was a tad encredulus about even my late wifes claim untill we visited DARTMOUTH CASTLE - DEVON with a "paranormal group " ( that i have no longer an association with - as they proved to be fakers of the worst kind - another story and absolutly nothing to do with this - thats just for info ) )

darmoth castle - is surprisingly situated at dartmouth on the river dart - commisioned origionally by henery the eighth to protect the port - it is a massive stone structure with gun ports etc : link here : http://www.castlexplorer.co.uk/england/ ... tmouth.php

anyways , to cut a fairly boring evenings events short , my wife and i had packed up our gear and where sat in the mid lower floor connecting area when we BOTH witnessed one of these "sphears " of light ( about the size of a beach ball ) exit a solid stone wall - travel along the ceiling and disapeared through it -( it was also captured on photo by a team upstairs , although sadly i dont have access to that photo ) - well you could have knocked me over with a feather and i stupidly asked "did you see THAT ?? - duh oh well of course she did - and i had to appologise somewhat profusely for doupting her account of the one in our house

intrestingly , i had , during part of the evening tracked "something" ( a patch of radio frequency energy ) about a meter square with a 3 ghz frequency counter i always carry whilst researching - and it was moving !! - rf signals dont DO that !! and there where NO transmitters on the frequency found and locked on tooo within 20 miles of the place lierally ( i do my research )

any ways - again - anacdotal evidence of the best kind - two witnesses at least and a very puzzled me - what ever it was ( no not ball ightning either ) - it was one of the most facinating things i have seen in my whole time researching the paranormal

well thats the last one ( for now ) if nothing else it will be amusing the the PsKeptics - but may also show that even in sleepy devon - we have our share of odd stuff - as always make of this what you will -

Very cool.

I have taken some photos where a good 'orb' appears but never anything like THAT or even close to it.

Not knowing a darned thing about ball lightning, I decided to look it up.

http://www.straightdope.com/columns/rea ... ally-exist

I find it amusing that the article is titled, "does ball lightning really exist?" and the bottom line seems to be that it doesn't. So then what the heck is the proper terminology for what people see that looks like ball lightning? I mean, it's something. It's been claimed to been seen by people, what is it?

excellent :D - these are more like a sort of "plasma " ball type affair - and if you look at the enlargement you may be able to see that it has a solidi sh core and a fibrous sheath - this was only a small one - the one i saw at Dartmouth was much bigger - though what the heck they are - i don't know , but of course have had every skeptic explanation from lens flare to reflection( plainly evident it ain't that ) -to fakery with photo shop ( i don't HAVE photo shop btw ) - and beyond of course ( including moths - yea moths ) :lol: :roll: - and if what i observed and my late wife said is any guide actually seem to be "aware " as they seem to avoid people

oh boy i bet the PsKetics are having a field day :lol: :lol:

well there are plenty of people that would disagree with that - indeed it is a rare phenomenon - but why could lightning NOT manifest as a ball ?? - after all the "experts " did not even know about "sprites " till a few years ago :

hope you find the above interesting :D

But isn't that their job??? If they didn't try to explain it away to the best of their ability, I'd call them slackers.

"Sprites", another thing that I knew nothing about. It seems to be a perfect example of something that obviously always existed yet only recently noticed and proved to really exist in more than someone's imagination or personal experience. Imagine that!

yes imagine that there are things in the world that "science " knows nothing about - quell horror !! - they took the mick out of the guy who first discovered them - until i think it was one of the shuttle missions saw them also - course then they had to listen :o - so what ELSE is out there that science has yet to catch up with ;)

Homeopathy is yet still another topic that I am not aquainted with here. So naturally, I looked it up. Exactly how does 'homeopathy', 'water' or 'blank' fit in with this topic 'spheres of what?'. Not to come off like I'm part of the topic police or anything but unless your comment is referring to these 'spheres' as 'curve balls' to derail a conversation, I'm afraid I don't get it.

Brett, isn't that photo what it looks like when you use a flash on an object close up? That's what it looks like to me. I've used the flash on close up objects and that's what appears when I do.

Oh and Ninjapuppy, the straight dope website is a site that is 100 percent against the paranormal. You know that don't you?

I got some interesting ghost orb photos from Nevada. I will post them here soon.

There are many unexplained orbs in photos. One theory is "fire elementals", a life form described by the ancient Greeks.

oh yea - i have had that one thrown at me - its the flash - its this its that - its the other - so to disprove them i took several shots with the same camera of the same scene and at the same spot - and guess what not one showed the effect - , as i have said before , i have even been accused of "photoshopping it " - but as analysis of the original digital image proved ( exif data ) the shot was genuine and unaltered

one thing is for sure what i saw at Dartmouth with the old Mk1 eyeballs - needed no flash or camera ;) - could be a unknown "life form " i suppose - anything is possible - but i simply don't know - and that's the honest answer - whatever it was - i have not seen any since - and doubt i will - but who knows ??

i just consider my self privileged to have seen it at all - makes all the hours of sitting round in supposedly "haunted " buildings which are as haunted as my left foot and all the BS that has invaded this whole field , worth while ;)

I don't have a clue as to pro or con websites pertaining to the paranormal. It was the opening information that made me use that article as an example-

We don't know jack, though not for lack of trying. The first systematic survey of mysterious glowing globules was published in 1838, and countless papers have appeared since. Despite that . . . well, let's say we have yet to deal with some basic issues.

Actually finding a 'scientific' source that admits they 'don't know jack' about everything was refreshing. It seemed to fit the topic at hand (ball lightning) as well as contain a very similar personal experience to Brett's experience stated in his post.

I have some pretty nice 'orb' pictures as well. I guess I will have to make some time to find the carton that contains my old floppys with my 'ghost pic' as well. I look forward to seeing your NV pics.
