Those who’ve been following me for a long time, probably remember my last hot summer in the desert was spent researching 50 haunted places to come up with a haunted formula. I want to expand that formula further with some studies of leylines and geomagnetic activity.
I will be studying ancient astronomical sites and why so many ancient civilizations all around the globe simultaneously looked to the heavens and made stone monuments to track the movement of planets and the alignment of stars. Speculation abounds about the location of these stone observatories and if they were centered over leylines where earth’s lines of energy crisscrossed. This ancient knowledge about the Earth and the use of stone structures, along with proper geology might have actually had the potential to make these structures more than just observatories, but perhaps also spiritual power centers. Are haunted sites atop of leylines that amplify events that occur there? Empower them to be able to record information?
I discussed in my haunted formula studies http://autumnforestghosthunter.blogspot.com/2010/04/examining-haunted-formulas-statistics.html last summer that the conditions for a good haunting appeared to include;
A history older than 50 years
A history of repeated and long-term anguish and death
A structure made of stone
A geology that is rich with sandstone, granite, limestone and shale
A running waterway nearby
OPTIONAL: Often times for some mysterious reason, a nearby railroad track which I could not verify one way or the other was relevant, so I considered it to be an incidental finding, perhaps pertaining more to the location of older home sites and towns near their major transportation in the past.
Interestingly, when I was growing up at Aspen Grove, the structure of the house and the the land and wellsprings that ran through it often had me wondering if the stones had a power like Stonehenge. It was a rather fanciful thought, but much later as an adult I came across a movie called “The Stone Tape” made in 1972. This movie’s premise was a team of scientists rent an old building in England to have a lab to work on electronics advancements in recording that would make old fashioned magnetic tape a thing of the past. When they realize the place is haunted they also come to realize the stones of the building itself were a recording device. I was stunned when I saw this movie, as if a lot of things clicked for me. This scene (you can find all the scenes on YouTube if you type in “The Stone Tape”) if you go to about the 3 minute mark (if you don’t want to sit through it all) shows you how they come to this conclusion.
I have no idea this summer where my research will take me on enhancing the haunted formula, but I do hope to find some very strong correlations with geomagnetic activity and then delve into research of earth leylines. I am also studying why mining town with frame structured buildings are haunted, as well. Hopefully, the formula can be enhanced so as to make it possible to not only know if a location is ideal for a haunting but what exact day is best to study it.
Ghost hunting is not an efficient sort of hobby. It takes hours of studying, sometimes several days and even more time reviewing evidence. But, if I can find a way to make it more efficacious, I’m all for that. So, expect this summer to hear updates on how this is going.
