www.MGCParanormal.org is a paranormal investigation team that takes on all things paranormal, with a deep affinity to the historical aspect of investigation and sites. Do they ghost hunt? With a passion! Hunt Bigfoot? Yes, they have! UFO sightings, Cryptozoic creatures, Urban Legends, Swamp Lights? They're also on their schedule! Involved in paranormal conventions, promoting the sites they investigate, and working on their book, MGCParanormal is THE well rounded paranormal group for you.
Our paranormal investigation group
has been handling some really interesting cases, so we thought we’d
share some investigative techniques with you, starting with the Fear Cage and
its typical detection tool.
We always try to reiterate
legitimate paranormal investigators are first and foremost debunkers.
It’s never a case of blind acceptance of seeming evidence. We go at any
suspected paranormal activity every way we can to disprove it. And usually we
do. Disprove it, that is. Only for approximately 2% of all documentable
evidence can we not find a physical reason for its occurring. Takes a
strong sense of humor when forced to admit we suffer a lot of self-inflicted
disappointment, and a lot of self defeat. But when we can’t
disprove something after subjecting it to every conceivable test . .
. that’s when the hundreds upon hundreds of work hours invested
In paranormal investigation what is
a Fear Cage? And how do we recognize it?
A bit of explanation first. One of
the tools we use is an EMF detector, a hand-held device that accurately
measures electrical flux in the environment, called Electro Magnetic Fields. We
sweep for and log static (constant) EMF’s where we find them. Only randomly occurring
or wildly spiking EMF’s are attributed to paranormal activity. To
scientifically explain the effect EMF’s can cause with the neurons of the
brain would take too long here, so suffice it to say people--as well as their pets--can be
susceptible to electromagnetic fields. Exposure for long periods of time can trigger psychological reactions such feelings of as anxiety and paranoia. For some it can trigger physical reactions such as headaches and nausea, with even pets affected to the point of illness. The constant bombardment of high EMF’s
can actually trigger brain activity, producing visual and audio hallucinations.
In a minute number of individuals, even mild EMF’s can trigger them.
actually been documented cases of EMF’s concentrated strongly enough to produce mass
hallucinations, such as those on a ranch in Arizona, where guests were jostled
from a dead sleep, woken nightly by loud repetitive booms. Yet audio recorders set
out recorded no such sounds; neither did seismographic equipment set up to
detect physical tremors register anything. So that means when most reported
paranormal activity repeatedly occurs in a single specific spot, we have to
consider the possibility we’re dealing with someone susceptible to
These fields can be naturally occurring, or created by many
things. Innocent seeming things. If someone experiences unsettling sights and
sounds only in bed, we meticulously examine that environment for high EMF’s before
going further. It’s possible for the bedside electric alarm clock on one
table, CD player on the other side of the bed, and ceiling fan overhead to
produce a distinct triangular electromagnetic field. The person in the bed is
in the middle. When this particular type of static field occurs, since the
person is literally “caged” by the electrical influence and it
produces frightening hallucinations, it’s referred to as a Fear Cage.
Quite often Fear Cages can be found in basements where the main electrical box,
heat/air conditioning unit, central vacuum, and large appliances create a high
concentration of EMF’s.
Is there another ghostly world
around us? We investigate because we want to find out.
