Anomalies-Unlimited Ghosts

Anomalies-Unlimited Ghosts
I've always got a kick how people will fall reverently silent and consider you blessed if you say you saw an angel or some "vision", but if you tell those same people you saw a ghost they'd tell you how full of it you were. Is there a difference? I sat in the library for 9 solid hours one day (heaven!), looking at every ghost book they had; "psychic photography", famous hauntings, the haunted; the stupid-ass "ectoplasm" photos of long-ago Mediums, badly faked portraits of spirit photography, the psychology and physiology behind those who claim demonic possession, EVP, infrared ghost photos, Near Death experiences. Maybe not. But - I know better. Hopefully I can share some of the latter here, but those debunking stories make good reading, too. Any good ghost stuff, Emaill me.

La communauté de l’immortalité à Gavdos Sur une petite île rocheuse du sud de l’Europe, depuis une cabane en bois, un scientifique russe et barbu nous parle d’une mystérieuse congrégation religieuse. « Il n’y aura pas de nouvelles générations », nous dit-il, « nous sommes la dernière. Nous n’allons pas autoriser la naissance d’individus mortels. Ils ne sont pas nécessaires ». Avec sa clope roulée et son coupe-vent en loques, ce type a vraiment l’air d’un clodo. Mais il est, en réalité, un membre éminent de ce qu’il convient d’appeler une « communauté d’immortalité » formée sur l’île de Gavdos par sept scientifiques russes qui se sont établis là il y a plus de 15 ans. Tous ces scientifiques ont obtenu de prestigieux diplômes et certains d’entre eux ont même travaillé pour l’équivalent russe de la NASA. Après avoir passé du temps à s’installer, leurs expériences étranges et secrètes et leurs philosophies ésotériques sur l’immortalité ont rapidement jeté un voile opaque sur leurs projets.

Top 10 Best Ghost Photographs While trying to decide which ghost photos are the “best” is largely an exercise in subjectivity, it’s difficult to know which ones are the best with any degree of objectivity. These are the photos I consider the most authentic “captures” of ghosts ever caught on film, but I leave it to you to decide for yourself how real they may be. Of course, I realize that almost any photo can be hoaxed, but many of these were taken many years or even decades before digital cameras and the advent of Photoshop and other photo manipulation software came on the scene, making them somewhat more difficult to fake than it would be today. 10.
