Some people say that the street lights go out when they beneath them

Some people say that the street lights go out when they beneath them 86

(SLI) is a term coined by paranormal author Hilary Evans to denote the supposed ability of people to turn on or off the safety lights of streets or buildings when they pass near them. Believers in SLI claim that they experience it on a regular basis with specific lamps and more often than chance might explain about the demand.

According to Evans, the SLI is a phenomenon “based on the claims of many people that involuntarily, and usually spontaneously, they turn off the street lamps.” The 1993 Evans book The SLI Effect proposes that the phenomenon “is not consistent with our current knowledge of how people interact with the physical world.” Evans coined the term “SLIder” to refer to someone who supposedly causes this effect, and cites SLIders’ claims of being able to “turn off a row of sodium vapor lamps in sequence, each of them turning off as the witnesses approach ”

Some advocates believe that static electricity or “some kind of” energy “emitted by the human body” is responsible for the SLI. Others claim that the supposed phenomenon is caused by individuals with psychic or psychokinetic ability.

The author Massimo Polidoro, who writes in Skeptical Inquirer, has considered the SLI’s claims as examples of correlation that do not imply causation, or of confirmation bias: people are much more likely to realize when one turns on or off light from a nearby street that when a remote light is turned on or off, or when a street light is turned on or off in a stable state at any distance. To this is added a lamp failure mode, known as “cycling,” in which high-pressure sodium lamps turn off and on more frequently at the end of their life cycle. A high pressure sodium engineer from General Electric, cited by Cecil Adams, summarizes the SLI as “a combination of coincidence and illusions.”

“Street light interference (SLI) is a term coined by paranormal author Hilary Evans to denote the supposed ability of people to turn on or off street or building security lights when they pass near them “

SLIders and the public lighting phenomenon

The phenomenon known as streetlight interference, or SLI, is possibly a psychic event that is just beginning to be recognized and studied. Like most phenomena of this type, the evidence is almost exclusively anecdotal.

Typically, a person who has this effect in street lighting, known as SLIder, realizes that the light turns on or off when walking or driving under it. Obviously, this could happen occasionally by chance with a defective lantern (you’ve probably noticed that it has happened to you from time to time), but SLIders claim that it happens to them on a regular basis. It doesn’t happen every time with all the street lights, but it happens often enough to make these people suspect that something unusual is happening.

Very often, SLIders also report that they tend to have a strange effect on other electronic devices. In the letters I have received, these people claim that the effects are as follows:

Devices such as lamps and televisions turn on and off without being touched.
The bulbs light constantly when the SLIder tries to turn them off or on.

Volume levels change on TVs, radios and CD players.
The clocks stop working.
Children’s electronic toys start on their own when the SLIder is present.

Credit cards and other magnetically encoded cards are damaged or deleted when they are in your possession.

What causes this phenomenon?

Any attempt to identify a cause for the SLI at this point would be mere speculation without thorough scientific investigation. The problem with such investigations, as with many forms of psychic phenomena, is that they are very difficult to reproduce in a laboratory. It seems to occur spontaneously without the deliberate intention of the SLIder. In fact, the SLIder, according to some informal evidence, is generally unable to create the effect on demand.

Reasonable speculation for the effect, if real, could have something to do with the brain’s electronic impulses. All our thoughts and movements are the result of the electrical impulses that the brain generates. At present, it is known that these measurable impulses only have an effect on the body of an individual, but is it possible that they can have an effect outside the body, a kind of remote control?

Research in the Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research (PEAR) laboratory suggested that the subconscious can effectively affect electronic devices. The subjects are able to influence the random generations of a computer much more than it would simply happen by chance. This research – and that which is being carried out in other laboratories around the world – is beginning to reveal, in scientific terms, the reality of psychic phenomena such as extrasensory perception, telekinesis and, soon, perhaps, the SLI. (Note: the PEAR laboratory did not specifically investigate the SLI, and since then the research center has been closed.)

Although the SLI effect is not conscious, some SLIders report that when it occurs, they are often in an extreme emotional state. A state of anger or stress is often cited as the “cause.” Debbie Wolf, a British waitress, told CNN: “When this happens is when I’m stressed by something. Not very maniacally stressed, just when I’m quilting something, chewing something on my head, and then it happens. ”

However, could it be just a coincidence? David Barlow, a graduate student in physics and astrophysics, suspects that the phenomenon could be attributed to people seeing patterns in “random noise.” It is unlikely that a light will come on by itself when you pass it, ”he says,“ so it is a shock when it occurs. ” If this happened a few times in a row, then it seems that some mechanism is working. ”

SLI Research

Dr. Richard Wiseman, from the University of Hertfordshire (England), carried out a research project on SLI. In 2000, Wiseman published in the newspapers a project to test the ESP with a kiosk-type machine – called The Mind Machine – that he installed in several places in England to collect a large amount of data on the possible psychic abilities of the general public .

Hillary Evans, author and paranormal researcher of The Association for the Scientific Study of Anomalous Phenomena (ASSAP), also studied the phenomenon. He established the Interchange of Street Lamp Interference Data as a place where SLIders can report their experiences and share those of other SLIders. The existence of this exchange cannot be verified at this time.

“It’s quite obvious from the letters I receive,” Evans told CNN, “that these people are perfectly healthy and normal people. It’s just that they have some kind of ability … just a gift they have. It may not be a gift they would like to have. ”



Spirited Away Nation: Magic in Indonesia is everywhere

Spirited Away Nation: Magic in Indonesia is everywhere 87

Indonesia is not one of those countries that fascinates at first sight. Too much poverty and disorder. One Indonesian pantun, an edifying quatrain, says: just as a worm from a stream falls into a river, so love sinks into the heart from the eyes, that is, it depends on external attractiveness. However, appearance, surface, visibility are not a priority for the Indonesians. You need to feel this country with your heart.

Perhaps this is the influence of difficult climatic conditions: it is rather difficult to think in a permanent sauna. American government structures even impose restrictions on access to posts of a certain level for persons who have spent more than three years in tropical Asia. It is believed that cognitive abilities undergo irreversible changes in such conditions.

The principles of formal logic cease to operate in this corner of the planet, which is literally between the worlds: underwater – a constantly approaching ocean, air – in the form of hurricanes, and fiery – a chain of active volcanoes encircles the country in a ring.

During the eruption of Mount Agung in Bali in 2017, Indonesians were looking for an explanation for what happened not in the information of geological exploration and the history of climate observations. They thought the eruption was caused by the spiritual fall of the Balinese. 

“Why is this happening now? It depends on the sincerity of the Indonesian people. Balinese people need to reconsider their spiritual aspirations and mentality, “- quoted the local socio-political publication of the Governor of Bali, Mangku Pastika.

Yet the atmosphere in Indonesia is so dense that it seems more real than real objects. Noises, sounds, colors – everything is refracted in this thickened air. Without exception, all Indonesians with whom I am familiar have personal experience of meeting, communicating and other contacts with various spirits and ghosts, according to beliefs, inhabiting these islands. 

Talking about ghosts is not shameful; this is a completely understandable and socially accepted explanation of events. The concentration of events, which is not easy to explain by the laws of physics, is for some reason really increased here.

There is a big list of spirits inhabiting Indonesia. The most famous of these is, of course, Kuntilanak, the ghost of a pregnant woman. It can be detected by the smell of plumeria – flowers common in Indonesia that resemble jasmine, but with denser petals of a noble white and delicate yellow. 

These flowers grow there like weeds everywhere. They line the roads, bloom on the trees planted around the beaches, garlands of these flowers are worn around the necks of the newlyweds. In general, almost everything and always smells there with plumeria, which means that the demon is always nearby.

Kuntilanak appears as a beautiful dark-haired woman with red eyes. In addition, a spirit can be identified by a hole in the neck, a hole in the back, and bleeding. She marks her presence with a high-pitched female laugh. It is believed that she is attracted by the smell of drying clothes, which is why many Indonesians and Malaysians are afraid to leave their clothes outside. 

The spirit is especially cruel to men, one of whom, apparently, became the cause of the posthumous wanderings of a ghostly woman. The ghost kills the victim with nails, eats the intestines, and sucks the eyes directly from the sockets.

Sometimes Kuntilanak is identified with another spirit – Sundel Bolong, personifying a woman of easy virtue. Like Kuntilanak, Sundel Bolong died carrying a child conceived out of wedlock. For this reason, the spirit takes revenge on men and steals babies to replace their unborn baby. However, sometimes both infernal entities can harm young women out of envy. In this case, they turn into a bird, cause the woman to bleed and drink her blood.

Besides Kuntilanak, Indonesia is believed to be inhabited by countless other demons. One of the first texts in my Indonesian textbook was a clipping from the local press in the 1960s, which reported how an entire class in a small rural school turned into a “kerasukan”, that is, the children were possessed by spirits and robbed of their will. In addition to Kuntilanak, who deprives people of their will, does all sorts of horrors with them and is loved for this by the authors of numerous Indonesian horror films, many local ghosts do not harm a person.

A nation that massively believes in ghosts lives in a special atmosphere on the verge of dream and reality. In addition, sometimes it is not so important what really exists, how important is what your interlocutors and partners believe in, especially if there are many of them: collective beliefs and the irrational behavior dictated by them is the social reality in which you have to live.

People of the shadow: what do the mysterious shadow creatures want from us

People of the shadow: what do the mysterious shadow creatures want from us 88

Shadow creatures are neither ghosts nor people, and we know these creatures as shadow people. It seems that the “shadow” know about our location and want us to feel fear or even panic in their presence.

People-shadows or shadow people are paranormal dark barely visible silhouettes known to mystics for a long time. They look like dark humanoid creatures or barely noticeable ghosts, often seen only with peripheral vision. Witnesses claim that shadow people only catch a few seconds, eyewitnesses also say that they looked into the eyes of shadow people and their eyes shone with a red light, like demons.

Shadow people can take different shapes and sizes: look like full-fledged people or even like animals. But most often these are thin tall strange figures. Be that as it may, they appear only for a moment, quickly evaporating into the air. Unfortunately, they can harm humans, which was proven in 2013.

The video posted on the web had confirmation of the existence of a shadow man who was visible for over a minute! An unknown silhouette knocks down a man walking down the corridor and drags him across the floor for several seconds. After some time, it also suddenly disappears, releasing the person. As it became known, the building where the striking phenomenon was filmed has complaints from tenants who more than once meet paranormal events in their home.

There are very few known cases though of adverse events caused by shadow people. In most cases, they appear or disappear as soon as they are found.

Shadow creatures can be spotted out of the corner of your eye. Some people who saw them or knew about their presence say that they are alien creatures, slipping in and out of our field of vision. In the eyewitness accounts, the observation of the recurrence of shadow manifestations is especially often mentioned.

Whether they are an elusive race that has always coexisted with us is an interesting theory suggesting that these creatures are frequent guests in our lives.

Paranormal researchers consider shadow people to be malevolent supernatural entities. Perhaps shadow people will not cause physical pain, but they can affect you emotionally, for example, cause fear – this gives them energy.

Skeptics and scientists believe that shadow people are optical illusions or hallucinations that appear under the influence of drugs or physiological changes in the body. When the left temporo-parietal brain is stimulated, these strange images are created.

Often the appearance of these shadows is inextricably linked with sleep paralysis, when a person is, as it were, between sleep and reality. Scientifically, this is called hypnogogy. Hypnogogia is called “the phenomenon of the face in the dark” for such hallucinations.

All eyewitnesses, regardless of where they live, talk about the same sensations in the presence of shadow creatures. Fear is a cold feeling that overcomes a person at this moment.

Some people say they even saw the eerie red eyes of these dark personalities that momentarily appear anywhere and demonstrate the ability to walk on the walls of enclosed spaces, which defies the general laws of physics.

Whoever they are, they feed on human energy, emit bad vibrations and give negative emotions. We do not know how they got into our dimension, about the purpose of their mission and how they affect the human essence. The main thing is to stop feeling fear in their presence and not to “feed” anyone with your precious energy.

Ghost hunter told how to summon spirits

Ghost hunter told how to summon spirits 89

A ghost hunter explained how to summon ghosts and when is the best time to do it according to The Daily Star.

Jade Capasso explores hotels, inns, historical places to allegedly reveal the spirits and ghosts that are present in them. She shares her discoveries on the YouTube channel Ghost Club Paranormal. The girl is sure that you can also talk with spirits.

The 28-year-old ghost hunter is confident that you can talk to ghosts and spirits using a voice recorder. A particularly good time for this, according to her, is the eve of All Saints’ Day – Halloween.

 “I think there is more activity during Halloween. More people believe in the other world, ”she said.

She recalled that Halloween pumpkin is an invariable attribute and symbol of the holiday. People decorate their home with funny, scary, and sometimes even terrifying faces.

 “I’m sure there will be more sessions and many will use Ouija boards,” she says.

To connect with the “other world”, you can go to a famous haunted place, says Kapassa. She also recommends checking your home for ghosts.

To hear a ghost, the girl recommends using special equipment. 

After all, ghosts, she said, emit sounds at ultra-low frequencies that are not perceived by the human ear. You can hear them, as she notes, only on audio recordings.

The girl says that you need to leave the digital voice recorder in a room where paranormal activity is observed all night, or ask questions and wait for an answer.

“Ask questions, and who knows, you might hear a disembodied voice answering you,” says Jade.

According to her, there is no need to rush, because the spirits must be given enough time to respond.

“You probably won’t hear them in real time. But if you listen to the recording, you might hear someone from the underworld, ”she said.
