I have a very weird talent for seeing correlations. It's a gift and it's a curse. In my reader's case, probably a curse because I'm going to make you think some more. I never let your minds rest.
I’ve talked before about my abilities in psychometry. That talent started at a very young age when I dug up relics around the grounds of our estate. But, later in life when I picked the talent up again after shunning it, I found a definite difference in how easy it was to read metals and jewelry, but how hard it was to read things like fabric and paper.
Now that I’m doing my study on physical properties of haunted sites, I’m looking at this again. Could it be that the ability to record information in an object is dependent upon the properties of that object?
Thusly, is a haunting dependent upon the materials it must imprint itself upon?
Could it be that a recorded haunting is easier to imprint in the right environment of perhaps a stone building atop of a limestone bed? Could other places be haunted, just harder to spit out their information because of poor “recording” conditions? For example, a frame house atop of a volcanic land might not seem haunted, but could it be just harder to come across the information embedded there? I can and have read paper before but it is a very hard thing to do. With only my self-taught skills I can extract it, but it’s one hellacious deed.
Taking this a bit further, could a team such as TAPS go into a location and have a totally lame night when the fact is the conditions weren’t strong enough to get the haunting to show itself in a way they could perceive or their equipment detect?
This is yet another baffling piece of the puzzle, but I can say this with great assurance. My abilities to read objects is greatly influenced by what the object is made of and when I go into a haunted site and touch the walls and floors to read, there are some surfaces I avoid because they are hard reads.
Is is possible that the average Joe in a house with the perfect conditions and history be able to see and hear the haunting because of the ideal materials just like I can read a ring better than a Dixie cup?
Just another thought to ponder.
