Re: “Ghost Adventurer

I am Carol Smith, the Organizer of the Richmond Paranormal Society. I disagree strongly with Robert Bess on several points.

First, let us look at the science of physics: the Law of Conservation of Energy. It states that the total amount of energy in an isolated system remains constant over time. The total energy is said to be conserved over time. A consequence of this law is that energy can neither be created nor be destroyed: it can be transformed from one form to another or transferred from one place to another. In an isolated system, energy can change its location within the system, and it can change from within the system: for instance chemical energy can become kinetic energy (Wikipedia: Conservation of Energy).

We ARE bio-electric energy. When our bodies die, all that energy is transformed but remains in existence.

I have Electronic Voice Phenomena from a spirit person replying directly to a statement of mine during an investigation. It occurred in the Byrd Theatre. Spirits don't need physical vocal cords. They communicate by the manipulation of energy.

There are two types of haunts: residual and active. Residual haunts occur when the energy of an event is so powerful that it is "recorded" on the surroundings. It "plays back" regardless of who is present. The active haunt is a spirit person who, for whatever reason, is still around a specific location or who drops in for a visit. My EVP, from the Byrd, is in line with the active haunt. I can provide the recording if you want.

Poltergeists are often associated with the energy of a living child. This, however, can and should be investigated per individual case.

Ghosts or spirits are people. They just don't have a physical body. They have an "energy" body.

I don't understand how Mr. Bess has studied spirits for 30 years and come up with his conclusions. Perhaps, the spirit people are so offended by him, they just ignore him and hope he goes away.
