In the Shadows Paranormal Project is an international collective of like-minded individuals and paranormal organizations that studies and documents paranormal phenomenon throughout the world. The series of processes and procedure developed over many years of combined experiences has created a methodology designed to create a single mind in the field of anomalous research and investigation. When you become a member of 'The Paranormal Project,' you agree to follow these few simple guidelines. They are the foundation for a quintessential unified process for collaborating information that may one day define what we do as an 'anomalous' science. We enjoy what we do and we all do it well. However, we still maintain our objectivity by understanding, it's not a game. Although we find it can at times find it to be quite exciting, we are not weekend thrill seeking 'ghost hunters.' There guidelines are designed to define how we operate.
