Could there ever be agreement between groups?
Posted 28 July 2004 - 05:43 AM
When thinking about all of the different theories out there on ghosts and the paranormal, It makes me wonder if we as a community of completely separate entities (investigative groups, enthusiasts, and individual investigators and hunters) could ever come to some sort of an agreement or at least to a point where we can have say, three or four workable (seemingly so) theories that everyone works off of. Or is the paranormal like religion? Is it stuck in the stubbornness that has tainted the views of it? Could we ever work on a theory or a couple of theories as a community, then if they don't work out on to the next one? I know everyone has their personal opinions and perceptions on this, but maybe we could attempt to start finding if some of these have valid reasoning or not.
Perhaps it's a bit early to think we can all get along and work together on a set of theories. Relatively speaking, we're on the first stages of starting to try and discover answers to something that has no formal outlaying of proof.
My gosh, I dunno... Perhaps it's kind of silly to think about. Speak your mind!

I don't believe that most theories are all that different except between believers and skeptics. I think that if someone believes enough to do paranormal research, they are going to have at least vaguely similar ideas of what it is we are looking at.
I think that the biggest difference comes in because we all have had our own experiences that we know are real. The experiences we have do quite often differ thus making each of us have a different opinion about what is out there. It all depends on experience.

Anything is possible. I really couldnít say if they will ever come to an agreement because then I would get caught biting my tongue, lol. The question is defiantly great and it should spark up a little peace. Everyone has different opinions on what they think is spooky or what they think is haunted. Each person has an individual feeling not ever the same. I guess it all depends on how experienced each group really is and how devoted they are to there work.
Some groups could take a certain situation and investigate it all night. Other groups don't feel the energy or the vibe so they move on. Ghosts/Spirits seem to choose who they want around. If you notice one person would say how they feel a negative energy around and then all of the sudden they are getting challenged in every direction. Itís really hard to say.

Our group has received many offers to join up with other groups.
I only group I do not think I could get along with was one I read about on the web that firmly believed orbs were extra dimensional aliens trying to invade our world, the scary thing is they were deadly serious.

If you stop and think about it. All religions are saying the same thing pretty much. What is different mostly is the cerimony. Things may be called different things what ever but the basic jist is pretty much the same. Things really aren't that far apart for ghost hunters either.

This was also my initial thought when I read your question, Akthra.
I can't think of a defining situation that makes one person right and the other wrong. We all have different takes on any given situation. Actually, I love reading other people's opinions. Sometimes certain responses make me think "Now, why are they seeing it that way?" and so I'll ask them to elaborate. Everyone has a basis for their opinion and they're always interesting to me.
I guess what it comes down to is respect for one another.
