Paranormal: Imprint Theory
Human beings are a mass of energy. Humans release energy everyday, and when energy is released, it leaves an imprint in the universe. The stronger the energy, the longer it will stay.
Let’s take a thermal imaging camera and imagine your pushing a key code to a door. Let’s say there are 4 numbers that are needed for that door code. Once you have entered the code and take a thermal imaging camera and look at the key pad, you’ll see heat signatures on the numbers that were pushed. The hottest spot would be the last number on the key pad that was pushed. The coldest one would be the first number that was pushed. This would be an example of imprint theory. However, when you’re dealing with human emotions, an imprint will stick around much longer.
The universe stores everything on a repository field. It’s very similar to how you save something on your computer, store music onto your Ipod, save a video game on your XBOX 360, etc. The stronger the emotions, the longer that energy sticks around. Gettysburg is always a prime example to use for this theory. Over 51,000 were killed, wounded, or went missing. That’s why it’s one of the most haunted places in the United States. Also, think about hospitals that have had many deaths, prisons that have had many beatings, stabbings, and murders, or hotels that have had incidents.
This is a great theory for getting to the core of residual energy. Unfortunately, it does not explain intelligent responses from spirits. In residual hauntings, spirits are non-responsive. Their energy is just reliving the event. How do intelligent spirits show up then? The research on the mysteries of the paranormal continue.
