Ghosts Exist: Electrical Impulse Wave Theory

There are many theories as to why ghosts exist and one interesting theory, now accepted by many serious researchers in the subject, is that of 'Electrical Impulse Wave Theory'. It is known that during a period of extreme emotional stress, brain waves (which can be recorded on an electroencephalograph) become more active. When these brain waves reach a certain pitch it is further believed that ordinary fabrics of buildings, bricks, mortar, furniture and so on electrically record them. Some time late, often years hence, certain people of a sensitive nature are able to briefly glimpse these often tragic recordings from the past. (Ghosts of Derby, Preface by Wayne Anthony)


The energy expelled or expounded from a person in the trauma just before death is absorbed into the building, and at certain times the events immediately prior to their death can be recalled or replayed, just as today the button on a video recorder can be switched to play and we can watch someone long dead appear on a screen. Buildings, of course, change, and when a ghost is reported to be 'legless' it is often because the floor became higher; if they are headless, unless, of course, their head is seen tucked under their arm, it is because ceiling is now lower than at the time of their death. Many people have seen ghosts 'walk through the wall' - are they really going through the wall or was there a door there? Has it now been bricked up and plastered over and wall paper put over it? Is the ghost simply going through a door as it once knew it? (Ghosts of Derby, Introduction by Richard Felix)


Derby is the 'Ghost Capital of England', and this wonderful book 'Ghost of Derby' joint authored by Wayne Anthony, a specialist in matters supernatural, and Richard Felix,  the local historian with a particular interest in the subject. This book will appeal to anyone interested in the history of Derby and of course, to anyone who believes in ghosts.

I believe ghosts are souls, they left human body after people die. They are intelligent, so they even try to intervene the worldly affairs sometimes by speaking to the living, playing ghostly tricks, or other things to warn people.

Hello, this 'Electrical Impulse Wave Theory' sounds interesting. I am wondering if the emotional imprinting on the environment is not related to the psychometric quantum field. What I mean to say is that perhaps the electromagnetic structure of the physical matter in the environment is actually acting like a data storage device in the particles that make up the physical objects in the place that is said to be haunted.

But that only explains some cases of haunting activity. Those apparitions and haunting like phenomena could very well be environmental recordings acting like nonlocal echoes that our mind is able to pick up on. But what about those interactive phantoms that seem to look at or even try to speak to the living? How do you account for them?
