Ghosts and the filming of.

12 posts in this topic

We've had the ability to record video for more then a century now. There must be millions of hours worth of video since that time.

Cameras are literally everywhere you go, many of which are recording 24/7.

With that said, no definitive proof of ghosts, demons or leprechauns has come from it.

This could leave one to believe that either ghosts simply do not exist or capturing them on video just isn't possible.

By now there should be thousands of hours of head scratching footage, yet we have so very little.

Just something to ponder...

I think it's pondered a lot by both sides.

Oh, no doubt about it.

The question could also be raised as to the validity of any and all existing footage.

Maybe there is something about the way the eye is set up that allows it to see ghosts, and we just haven't invented a camera that mimics the eye correctly yet.

The nature of light and the function of the eye are both very well understood.

We've actually captured lots of ghosts on cameras in the past few years. A bug lands on the lens of a security camera and it looks just like a ghost. The headlights from a moving car shine through a window causing a light to pass through a room and it looks just like a ghost. Something that looks something like a human form in a room is reflected in a window when someone take a picture and it looks just like a ghost.

The abundance of cameras and video cameras really is giving us a better understanding of the phenomena.

I completely agree with you Scowl... But I meant more like the actual physical setup to the eye- we haven't made a camera that is a globe of goo backed with rods and cones, and maybe there is something about that physical setup that could allow seeing ghosts. I could be totally wrong too.

Yes, our brains are hooked up to it. So, many possibilites for our eyes to see things that are not there. Hallucinations, movement, etc.

Cameras do not have these issues.

If our eyes see it, and it is really there, a camera would capture it.

If we thought we saw something, and a camera did not capture it, then it is very fair to see we had a " glitch " somewhere from our eye to our brain, or vise versa, and it was not there at all.

IMO, as with religion, the only thing keeping these types of beliefs alive is the fact that they are unfalsifiable.

The thing is, mates, is that with the advancement of technology, there can always be an excuse as to what things were. A white apparition in a photo can be scratched in with a paperclip, and then re-photoed again. Everything can always be explained by something else, and yet those explanations may not necessarily be true. So, no, you cannot prove the existence of the paranormal. Even if they see them with their own eyes, they can blame it on psychological disorders, new high tech holograms ("that government has been hiding from us") and what not.

The knowledge we've accumulated about how the eye functions and how human vision works could fill a hundred books. We have all the parameters of what forms of energy the eye can and can't perceive. Human vision is one of the best understood functions of the human body. Several industries rely on understanding it. It's extremely unlikely that a hundred years of studies have overlooked something.
