Ghost Hunting And White Noise

What the heck is "White Noise"  and what does it have to do with ghost???

Using White Noise while conducting a
paranormal investigation.

By: Dennis Batchelor / Founder MVPs

I recently received several emails regarding "White Noise" and how it can come into play during a paranormal investigation. If your also one who wishes to learn more about the recently discover technique...read on !
 
So then what is White noise ?

White noise is a type of noise that is produced by combining sounds of all different frequencies together. If you took all of the imaginable tones that a human can hear and combined them together, you would have white noise.

The adjective "white" is used to describe this type of noise because of the way white light works. White light is light that is made up of all of the different colors (frequencies) of light combined together (a prism or a rainbow separates white light back into its component colors).

In the same way, white noise is a
combination of all of the different frequencies of sound. You can think of white noise as 20,000 tones all playing at the same time.

Because white noise contains all frequencies, it is frequently used to mask other sounds. If you are in a hotel and voices from the room next-door are leaking into your room, you might turn on a fan to drown out the voices. The fan produces a good approximation of white noise. Why does that work? Why does white noise drown out voices?

Here is one way to think about it. Let's say two people are talking at the same time. Your brain can normally "pick out" one of the two voices and actually listen to it and understand it. If three people are talking simultaneously, your brain can probably still pick out one voice.

However, if 1,000 people are talking simultaneously, there is no way that your brain can pick out one voice. It turns out that 1,000 people talking together sounds a lot like white noise. So when you turn on a fan to create white noise, you are essentially creating a source of 1,000 voices. The voice next-door makes it 1,001 voices, and your brain can't pick it out any more.


Though experimentation:


Study's have found that a background of white noise is conducive and may enhance the end results. Much of the research is aimed at attaining the right choice of background noise, or vibration. This alters from tuning in to special radio frequencies or as simple as allowing tap water to run in the room.

In this respect it is remarkable that from an independent source enhancing of a signal by non-linear or independent variables systems noise has been reported.

The discovery was made in 1982 by three Italian scientists: Roberto Benzi, Alfonso Sutera and Angelo Vulpiani.

In the August 1995 issue of the Scientific American the phenomenon has been described. It is called stochastic resonance. Best results are obtained by establishing the exact level of white noise. EVP experimenters would benefit from their taking notice of their conclusions.

Bored Yet? - hang with me....
 

Basically...

It boils down to this, by introducing "White Noise" to an area in which you will be doing EVP sweeps  will neutralize majority of all the inherit or "on location" sounds so that the possibly paranormal sounds you pick up while conducting an EVP investigation will come though cleaner and much clearer...in theory.

Not only does it make for a better recording atmosphere it is also said to actually attract and draw in the paranormal spirits. There have been reports that while White Noise recordings are being played that often EMF detectors will peg out and Thermo gauges will show huge fluctuations in static base temperature readings.

Not only does the electronic equipment react but it's also said investigators reported seeing and photographing some incredible orbs, shapes, shadows they felt may had been other wise missed had they not been using white noise recordings in the background.

What this would indicate is that for one reason or another ghost become very curious and all gather to that specific location and become very active. In the words of one investigator...

" The energies swirled around us, and we could almost imagine a strange party of ghosts flocking towards the source of the sound."

Over all the investigators whom have use this technique had nothing but shining remarks as to how well the introduction of White Noise works...EXCEPT

The volume plays a very important key role in the success of this sounds use.

It will take time... to get the volume levels worked out as too low a volume you will get little to no noticeable change.

Too much volume can have several unwanted effects. White noise can be very soothing within a particular (db) Decibel range, but just the opposite if the volume is to loud.

Investigator have reported feeling ill and actually throwing up. They also report overwhelming feelings of uneasiness, sadness and dread. In many cases they described the desire to run out of a location as they were feeling surrounded by spirits.

To a paranormal spirit perhaps it would be the same as piping in over a loud speaker AC-DC in a nursing home...They ain't gunna like it !!!

So you need to make adjustments to the volume that best fit each investigation keeping in mind that low volume is not good, soft volume is better, and loud, Dude Run !!!
 

Ok so how do I incorporate White Noise in my investigations ???

Simple, to start off with you'll want to begin taking base EMF (Electro Magnetic Field) readings.

Carry along a "Boom Box" that can play CD's and has replay. You'll want to place it in a room that is centrally located in the home or structure and then on the CD player press the loop or re-play button so that at the end of the CD it automatically starts over.

Place the CD in containing White Noise and push play. Once it begins set the volume so that at 10 feet away you can barely hear it...This would be a starting point.

Begin taking static EMF readings again, this time noting if there are any changes and or fluctuations from the base readings taken prior to the introduction of White Noise.

If you see noticeable changes in a relative short period of time, say 5 minutes you may want to leave it set or you may want to increase it  slightly.

You may want to do this several times but beware and DO NOT raise the volume too loud as to create negative effects on you or your team members.

If nothing seems to happen it may be there is nothing paranormal at that location, but don't give up try it again at the next location by all indications I've found this technique works.
 

*** Also Worth Noting ***

The use of White noise has been used with success in outdoor locations as well. Set it up just like described above and see if it works for you...

 

So Where Do I Get White Noise Recordings...

Glad you ask... : )

I happen to have White Noise you can download.

This is a great download you can burn to CD and use to record clear, clean EVP's (Electronic Voice Phenomenon).

White Noise is a signal (or process) with a flat frequency spectrum. In other words, normal background noises can be neutralized so that any suspected paranormal voices or sounds will  then have a higher bandwidth and they become the centre frequency.

EVP's is today one of the most fascinating areas of paranormal research.

Human-sounding voices from unknown origin are recorded on such electronic media as analog tape recorders, digital voice recorders, video recorders and other devices. Strangely, the voices are not heard at the time of the recording; it is only when the recording is played back that the voices are heard.

With the help of the White Noise CD you will be able to hear on your digital recorder the spirits respond, answer questions, even ask questions of their own.

Numerous ghost hunters, paranormal investigators and ghost enthusiasts have used White Noise like this to aid them on their paranormal investigations. This White Noise is a must have for paranormal investigations. The White Noise runs approximately 60 minutes.

This recording contains 100% genuine white noise, the best quality white noise you can get. There are "white noise generators", which sell for a lot more, that are usually frequency-biased in their attempt to simulate white noise.

60 minutes of frequency-neutral and non-repetitive white noise. Don't take any chances!
Get the "cleanest" white noise there is. Sound frequency  that contains every frequency from 0 Hz to 22,050 Hz (22.05 kHz) at equal power, with absolutely no distortion or repetitiveness, in stereo. This is as good as white noise gets!
 

 

So Here's the deal,

If you want to begin introducing White Noise into your next investigation
 I have a 60 minute recording here that you can download to your computer,
 burn to a CD and play it on sight at your next investigation.
