Two paranormal investigators experience the creepy effect of the Ganzfeld Experiment at a haunted location!
The Ganzfeld Experiment uses sensory deprivation to elicit the Ganzfeld Effect: an altered state of consciousness that includes hallucinations, telepathy, and extrasensory perception (ESP). Test subjects are blinded by a red light and deafened by white noise for a half hour. I first learned about the Ganzfeld Experiment at the Grey Ghost Paracon 2013 from The G.H.O.S.T. Files. Later that year I joined them in Ashville, North Carolina to document the experiment. Two paranormal researchers, Matt and Ciara, volunteered to take Ganzfeld experiment at a haunted location. By using the experiment in a paranormal investigation we hoped it could help capture paranormal activity. The experiment started slow, but about twenty minutes into the test it appeared that the activity picked up. This video documents that activity.
The Ganzfeld Effect
Both investigators seemed to experience the same things during the test. They both claimed they saw the outlines of figures walk across them. In addition, they both heard disembodied voices. Most shocking of all, they both felt that they were touched by a spirit. Matt felt cold chills on his leg twice and like a ghost touched his shoulder. Ciara claimed that a spirit moved her wristband and grabbed her by the wrist. Unfortunately, review of the video neither confirmed or denied that the wristband actually moved. The camera angle made it hard to get a clear look at her wrist, but for Ciara the personal experience was definitely real. For me, it left me to wonder if that experience was the side effect of sensory deprivation or real paranormal activity.
