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

(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. ”



A photographer took a picture of an old house, but did not know that a woman lived there. No wonder – you can only see it in the photo

A Scottish resident took a photo of an abandoned building, and then could not believe his eyes when he looked at the finished photograph. From there the woman’s face was looking at him, but the man is sure: there was no one in the ruins of the house. Finding an explanation for what he saw was not easy.

A photographer from Scotland, who wished to remain anonymous, decided to arrange an unusual photo session, Unilad writes.

His choice fell on several abandoned buildings that are located in one of the parks in the North Ayrshire region. After taking a couple of pictures, he went to the studio to print them, and then looked at the finished result.


The negative of one of the photographs of the photographer

Mysticism often happens in abandoned buildings , and the case with a man was no exception. In one photo, the Scotsman saw the ghostly silhouette of a woman looking at him from a window. However, the man assures that there was no one in the building, and he was alone in the ruins.

During the shooting, I did not feel anything unusual or anything otherworldly.

Despite the fact that the woman’s face looks intimidating, he is glad that he managed to capture it. Moreover, the hero of the story shared the frame with all friends who adore mysticism and riddles.


Pay attention to the left window

I’m happy that I was able to capture something that looks like a ghost. I am even proud to be able to show photos to people who love riddles.

Many people, according to the photographer, are inclined to believe that this is a ghost, who love to talk to children so much, although the author of the picture himself is in no hurry to draw conclusions. He even looked at the frame under a microscope, but never came to the truth.

You can, of course, speculate, but the human brain makes us see familiar traits everywhere, especially if we look at them long enough.


Moreover, the photographer, according to him, does not really believe in ghosts and other mystical phenomena.

I don’t like the term paranormal. As for ghosts, I don’t know if they exist. I don’t even know how to define them. What is it? Energy?

Camera recorded an extraneous movement in Massachusetts. And this sight is not for the faint-hearted

A Redditt user with the nickname grandslammer0891 from Mansfield, Massachusetts, posted a video from security cameras at a friend’s house, which scared him and left users in disbelief.

The author of the video explained that his friend left home by the end of August, leaving four huskies in the care of a friend. He usually visited them during the daytime.

One day the owner of the apartment received a notification in the middle of the night that the camera recorded some kind of extraneous movement. At that time there were only dogs in the house.

The video captured the kitchen and part of the living room. A dog is lying on the sofa in the right corner, and you can trace the turns of the head by its ears. When her ears turn to the left, then in the dark you can see the transparent figure of a moving person.

The video puzzled users and caused a mixed reaction from them. Some could not find an explanation for what they saw and panicked slightly. The dog’s head turns towards the ghost, which suggests that it also noticed the apparition.

“What is it, I saw it … with my own eyes. Does anyone else see this? Because it seems to me that I definitely saw something wrong. No no”.

Others decided that a man had walked past the window on the right, and his shadow flashed on the left in the headlights. Some users even believe that a live person got into the frame.

“I hope your buddy has a gun. There was a real intruder. “

Some readers agreed that the ghost video is quite plausible, since Massachusetts is full of ghosts.

Paranormal researcher warns that Ouija boards can summon dangerous demons

Paranormal researcher Paul Marsters criticized British retailer Poundland for selling Ouija boards as part of Halloween decor. He warned that only professional mediums should use the boards, and ordinary people can summon deadly demons. 

Paul, who is a member of True Paranormal Events UK, was stunned when he saw a £ 1 ($ 1.29) Ouija board in a local budget store.

 “Ouija boards are definitely not toys and should not be available to children to buy in stores on Halloween, let alone adults who are not trained in how to use them. It doesn’t matter if they are plastic or wooden ”, – quotes the words of the ghost hunter Hull Live. 

Paul Marsters explained that people can accidentally summon dangerous spirits that will torment their victim in the future and may even lead to suicide. 

“On Halloween night, the veil on the spirit world is very thin, and people only buy these boards for Ouija sessions on Halloween, so I’m afraid to imagine what will happen when these boards are in the wrong hands,” the expert said. 

Poundland noted that Ouija boards can only be purchased by persons over 18 years of age. This item sold out quickly before Halloween due to its popularity.
