The content of this website is the copyright of World Nexus Publications © 2008-2011 To call an entity a ‘ghost’ demands first a definition by which to identify it as a ghost. This type of apparitions is the most rare, yet first thought of, when identifying this phenomena. Ghost apparitions are almost always appear as a mist (usually white), a vapor or have a definitive human form, characteristics, and appearance (very often with discernible ‘clothing’ of a consanguineous (recognized) apparition or ‘period clothing’ of a Chronicled (period) apparition. In this type of ghost sighting, a witness can usually describe the ghost's facial features, style of clothing and other details, that can possibly be used to identify the spirit, if it is unknown to the witness. The one detail most often noted features of this type apparition, is they are rarely a ‘full’ apparition - meaning the full body from head to toe appears. In most cases, it’s only a partial appearance and usually for a short period of time. ‘Shadows’ are probably the most common sighting of an entity. Which can often can be explained as a natural event, and accounts as the most widely reported type of sightings. Many of the encounters cannot be definitively explained as a spirit with a soul. Exactly why this type of apparition appears as dark shadows is still unknown but there are two very possible, logical explanations. The first is that light since light does not reflect off them is that the entity lacks enough energy to form a compete ‘ghostly’ apparition. This form has often been called or mistaken as a demon,  due to the fact that they always appear as an all black figure or shadow (thus the name). There is no concrete proof that ‘shadow’ apparitions are anymore ‘malevolent’ then any other form of apparition. The second is that they are from another dimension, possibly travelers passing through our earthly dimension, or somehow opening a window into another. Without ruling out the possibility of a visible parallel universe or extra-terrestrial visitor. Those who are experiencing and studying the shadow people phenomenon say that these entities almost always used to be seen out of the corner of the eye and only for a few moments Although more and more people report seeing them for longer periods of time. Another phenomena often experienced when capturing a shadow person on film or video, is that when they appear in frame, the film seem to have a very grainy appearance, possibly denoting the camera sensors are affected by whatever energy these beings are. This type of haunting is the most terrifying, because it has the greatest ability to affect our physical world. Poltergeists are blamed for unexplained noises, such as wall-banging, rapping, footsteps and even music. They take our possessions and hide them, only to return them later. They turn on faucets, slam doors, turn lights on and off, and flush toilets. They throw things across rooms. They have been known to pull on people's clothing or hair. The malevolent ones have even been known to slap and scratch the living. It is because of these sometimes "mean-spirited" manifestations that poltergeists are considered by some some people call them ‘demonic,’ at time their malevolent nature goes to an overdrive extreme. Many investigators are beginning to believe more and more that poltergeist activity is not caused by a spirit or entity at all, because when the haunting occurs, it’s almost always seems to be centered around certain people acting as ‘agents’ during extreme stress. Research through the Rhine Research Center Institute for Parapsychology, poltergeist activity is often commonly associated with a child agent in very close proximity to the paranormal activity. Known as Psycho Kinesis (PK); and Recurring Spontaneous Psycho Kinesis (RSPK). During a poltergeist manifestation, the agent therefore makes an subconscious attempt to relieve their emotional stress, unwittingly causing the physical disturbances experienced by their own mental forces known as PK. However, many paranormal researches don’t always agree. But many do not rule out the possibility that the ‘agent’ is being used as a tool by an unknown entity to go on the rampage. Usually starting our mildly, until it gains the confidence of agent, before releasing its full wrath.. So together, the entity becomes much more powerful, while putting the agent in extreme danger, possibly possession (manifesting as schizophrenia or psychosis). Deeming that professionals on the subject of PK and/or poltergeist activity should ALWAYS be consulted! Although the term ‘ectoplasm’ was first coined during the mid to late nineteenth century during the spiritualist period, today it refers to a white misty cloud of energy that normally does not take on the form of any recognizable shapes, yet often appears as a mist, cloud, or smoke in photographic evidence and is rarely seen by human beings with the naked eye. Although a ghostly apparition may materialize by first forming this mist before appearing to the witness.
