Whenever I think about this, one example always comes to mind. There was an episode of Ghost Hunters or GHI where the crew was investigating the ruins of an old, cursed mansion in Ireland. Apparently, some old lady a long time ago cursed the mansion because it was being built on a layline and/or faerie settlement. Anywho, the place was supposed heavily inhabited by faeries/elementals. Well, Jason and Grant caught (via heat-sensing camera) a group of three small entities following another pair of investigators. I remember asking myself "Why are they appearing when they are clearly stalking the pair of investigators?". The only two conclusions I could find were: A- They knew that Jason and Grant were watching them, or B- They couldn't help but give off energy.
If option A is correct, then so ends the conversation. If B is correct, then more questions appear. Do entities always give off energy? If so, couldn't you fill a haunted location with all sorts of sensors and potentially monitor a ghost's behavior for multiple days, weeks, months, or years? If not, and ghosts only have to give off bursts or short periods of energy, how do they exist when they aren't giving off energy? Are they still a detectable energy that we have yet to discover (i.e. psychic energy)? Of course, you could pull many more questions off of these questions, but I want to keep this on-topic.
So, what do you think?
