Default Paranormal

Just curious, has anyone here ever had a paranormal experience? One time, me and my friends were going on this hayride at night and we sware we saw a UFO, it was very close and made of about 6 lights rotating around it. I'm only asking this because more recently I was getting a ride home from swim practice and I saw a triangular object about 50 feet in the air hovering above us, so now i'm a little curious who else has seen these type of things.

if your looking for some thing, and you see a object and you don't know what it is you make yourself belive its a ufo, or ghost, etc. you see what your looking for, don't look and you don't see, thats just the way i look at it.

An owner of one of my local RC stores is into that. He saw several episodes of Ghost Hunters on Discovery Channel and tried to get into it by doing the same (cameras, temp guns, etc.). He even put out adds in the paper and on-line. That didnt last long though. More Americans are skeptics than belivers and he unfortunately never had anyone ask him to do a formal ghost hunt.

Also, since shows like Ghost Hunters feature guys running around with high tech equipemnt, his customers would be very disappointed to find out that he is chasing hosts with a Duratrax nitro engine temp gun and a Walmart hand held camera. Anyone who hires a ghost hunter would expect to see the same high dollar equipment on TV.

Maybe you should lay off the drugs for a while. Might be getting to your head. [sm=bananahead.gif]

lol, i seen people on tv talkin about they seen ufo's, its so fake how they will let their imagination run wild just to get on tv.
Beasley, i think the same thing, drinks and drugs will make your mind play tricks on you..

First off, i'm not on drugs or alcohol, never have been, never will. Second we werent looking for it, and it didnt occure to us afterword that we could have seen a UFO. Third The lights were rotating around it like a model of an atom, I dont know of any aircraft that does that. But I do beleve there is life out there and that one day we'll find it.

Carl Sagan presented a formula for calculating the probability of sentient life on other planets in the universe. Out of trillions and trillions of stars and planets, the possibility of a star system with planets to support hydro-carbon based life is a very small number, but the possibility is significant enough for these star systems to yield sentient hydrocarbon organisms.

I do not know if this formula even considered the possiblity of sentient live by some other elements other than hyro carbon based organism. Who is to say that silicon is not a viavle element to be a vehicle for intelligent life forms. Afterall, computer chips are silicone based (of course doped with other chemicals to conduct electrical currents). There could be lifeform that is essentially an living computer organism (of course, thousands of times more complex than moden PC or Mac computers).

Also, who is to saw that the intelligent living organism has to be composed of some sort of solid anwhere in its body? If gases somehow began to coalense into some ordered structure without solidifying but maintaing some mechanical order and structure, that structure can compute and a combination of billions of such structures can yield a sentient thinking "organism." A nebula, for example, can become a sentient being (although, this is extremely unlikely).
The same can be said about liquids that solidify and liquify aganin in an ordered and structured mechnical manner such that billions of such a mechanism could yoield a sentient being.
By modern thinking and current understanding of physics, such a gaseous or liquid being would be a very large organism. That is why an ocean on Earth (say, the Antarctic Ocean) would not become sentient unless it had a means of keeping some sort of orderend and mechanical structures ("organs") consistently operating.

On a very grand scale, galaxies could be sentient, its just that the thought processes of a galaxy would be extremely slow. Here is my reasoning. Stars have EM fields around them and so do planets and other large panetoid bodies. As a star has a stellar flar (a flare just like the Sun has), EM waves are emitted and the nature of the star's EM state changes. Just like a human's neurons (nerve cells) are electrically stimulated and in turn stimulate other neurons connected to them, a star's EM pulse (stellar flares), or a pulsar outburst have an effect on surroundiing stars (even though at a very slow degree and often very very very small). But in trillions of years, the EM pusles of the billions of stars, pulsars, etc. might actually be impulses that sum up to intelligent thought.

Also, gravity would have an effect on such a thought process. A black hole might be part of a logic circuit. The amount of photons and its current gravity state might be a state that defines "true" or "false" and if a pulsar is associated, it could be signaling a change of state. If Stephen Hawkins is correct about black holes emitting Hawkins radiation waves, the quantum sigularty could slowly be changing its logic state.

My imagination is going too far, even to the point of banter to those who dont understand and that I apologize for. But like the improbability drive in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Universe, the most improbable is still probable. It's just finding out which things are actually impossible.

well I still don't know for sure what it was, but I do remember one time about 2 yrs ago sitting in the park looking at the sky when I saw this flashing light. I just thought it was a plane, until it stopped flashing and 4 smaller lights detatched from it and went off in their own directions.

I figured it could be birds... then I remembered that birds don't have lights on them, so then I thought it was fireworks... untill I realized that I was watching the same lights for like 5 minutes. then they regrouped and disappeared. just so that I wouldn't over-think it and scare myself later I dismissed it as airplanes + imagination = [sm=spinnyeyes.gif]

dude, savagejim. i though my imagination was kinka crazy but thats one thing that i never could have imagined. hmm come to think of it something happened a few years ago that was kinda weird. me and my dad were driving dowm the intersate and we saw this really sweet ford cobra. it was jet black w 2 white racing stripes down the center w ohio plates. (i have a weird way of remembering stupid details) ne way. we passed it really slow so we could look at it then we kept going. we basically talked about it the entire time and when we got to our destination we see the exact same car w the same 2 guys in it(one of them had long red hair and the other dark short hair) coming from where we were going. i still cant figure it out bc we most definitly passed it and they never passed us. and there is only one way into the place we were going and they were coming out so there is no way they took another route to get there b4 we did. well my only explanation is ive breathed too many nitro fumes

Earth has an EM field. i think that's how compasses work. don't people have EM fields too?

Yes, people have EM fields also, but very small. The more significant EM fields caused by people (and other living organisms with a nervous system) have EM fields is the neral electrical impulses as neurons fire. As the electricity courses through the nerve pathways, electrical and magnetic fields are generated.

Now, heading back to the discussion of paranormal, alot of paranormal theorists have deas that EM fields and EM anomolies are indicative of supernatural presence.

Everything emits EM fields. There is a theory that the sun's energy source is actually magnetic fields that emit from our galaxy's center which make the atoms that compose the sun collide at high speeds and make energy and more atoms by continually producing fusion reactions. Basically the theory is that the sun turns energy into atoms rather than turn energy into atoms by way of fusion. It explain galaxy growth, black holes, planet core temperature, inability to create a stable fusion reaction, and a bunch of other stuff. I know this is wayyyy off-topic but I heard it the other day and it got me interested........just had to share

Blieve it or not, these theories are not off topic since they can actually be the source of some of the paranormal experiences. You look at the universe and it is such a wonderful thing, even paranormal in itself. Afterall, what is paranormal today will actually be part of empirical science tomorrow once we find out how to observe it and what it is.
