4-2-6-2-10-5-1

Would you like to visit another world? Then the numbers 4-2-6-2-10-5-1 are the combination to take you there. It is said that if you step inside an elevator and enter those floor numbers in that sequence you can enter another world. The ritual originated from Korea. You will need to find a building with at least 10 floors as the 10th floor is where you will step out into another world. If you enter the numbers in the correct order a woman will apparently enter on the 5th floor who you should never ever look at nor speak to. As the elevator arrives at the 10th floor, the woman will ask “where are you going?” but again you should never ever answer her. After you have been and explored the other world you can return by entering the same combination into the elevator floor buttons and when you step […] Read More

A Wailing Ghost In Brooklyn

XAVIER ORTEGA Sr. Editor at GhostTheory A cold darkness permeated Brooklyn’s east side one night in 1894. Under a bright moonlight, the cobblestone streets glistened as a thick fog poured over them. A fog that made its way down the hills surrounding Brooklyn’s Ward 27. An area surrounded by cemeteries that were almost as old as the dark, wet dirt that fills them. On these empty streets, five young women found themselves ankle-deep in a coiling fog. In a hurry, they decided to cut across an empty lot near Knickerbocker Avenue. As the ladies made their way through the lot, something made them stop dead in their tracks. Something white up ahead. The wafting fog grew more and more as the women shivered together. Just then, a hysterical cry ripped through the fog, sending a bolt of lightning down their chilled spines. Before any of them could move, much less utter a […] Read More

Hundreds of Experienced Hunters Vanish In U.S. National Parks Without Any Proof

What would you say if I told you that over 1,100 people have “vanished” from this country’s national parks and forests in the past 100 years. Furthermore, what if I told you a large percentage of those people who “vanished” are innocent young children, many younger than the age of 10? That would seem strange right? Then, what if I told you the National Park Service claims their agency does not keep records of people who have gone missing within National Parks or Forests, not even children. Does that make ANY sense to you? Children are “vanishing,” and yet the government keeps no record? Further adding to the mystery, what if I told you dozens and dozens of the over 1,100 victims who have simply “vanished” from Federal National Parks and National Forests over the years were experienced hunters? Often, hunters are considered some of the best and most […] Read More

Edison Worked on a Spirit Phone to Record Voices of the Dead

A long-lost chapter of the memoir of Thomas Edison has been found and published in France and it contains details of the great inventor’s plans to build a device to record the voices of the newly departed. Edison’s original memoir is called “Diary And Sundry Observations” and was published in 1948, 16 years after his death. The first edition of the book contained a last chapter called “Spiritualism,” a collection of essays in which Edison talks about his beliefs in an afterlife and a way to communicate with the dead. I believe, rightly or wrongly, that life is undestructable … I am inclined to believe that our personality hereafter will be able to affect matter. If this reasoning be correct, then, if we can evolve an instrument so delicate as to be affected, or moved, or manipulated – whichever term you want to use – by our personality as […] Read More

The Strange Case Of Karin Catherine Waldegrave

In 2011 something strange happened on Facebook. People were made aware of the hundreds of unnerving messages that were posted by a Canadian woman named Karin Catherine Waldegrave. Her messages read like the ramblings of a deranged conspiracy theory kook, however it wasn’t what she said that unnerved many. It was the fact that she was having a conversation with her own self. Five hundred to seven hundred cryptic replies within a twelve hour period. Soon after the messages stopped and were removed. And with it went Karin’s Facebook account.

2014: The Enigma of Demonic Possession

Anneliese Michel Probably one of the more famous modern cases is the sad tale of Anneliese Michel. Born on September 21, 1952, Michel was diagnosed with having temporal lobe epilepsy at the age of 16. Michel was a German Catholic who lived in Leiblfing, Bavaria, West Germany. Her family is said to have been very religious and apparently attended Mass at least twice a week. Not having familiarity with Catholicism I can’t say whether that represents a normal amount or an “extreme” amount. I do think it’s worth noting her and her family’s deeply held religious convictions. I believe these beliefs may have played a part in the events which would unfold in her life. Around the time that Michel had gone off to college, in the ’70s, she suffered a third seizure while at a hospital where she was being treated for tuberculosis. The picture gets a little […] Read More

Charles Fort’s X-Men

One of Charles Fort’s books which I haven’t spent a lot of time within the past is his final one; Wild Talents. In this work, Fort collects reports and accounts of human beings with occult or paranormal gifts or powers. If he had been so inclined, Fort might have collected these individuals together and formed his own ‘School for Gifted Youngsters’. For those not aware, the school is the headquarters and training grounds of Marvel’s X-Men. At this school, Charles Xavier (Professor X) recruits mutants, beings with incredible powers, and teaches them to harness and control their powers so that they can live in harmony with human beings. Though Professor X and his school may be fictional, Fort documents case after case of people in the real world who exhibit similar kinds of amazing feats. OK, so you don’t have a guy with claws coming out of his hands […] Read More

2014: Thoughtography

Probably because I’m a huge fan of Spiderman, I was interested in photography from an early age. At one point I had even considered a career in photography, until I realized how bad I am at composition and how much talent is required to be a photographer. In high school I took a photography class and really enjoyed it, but it was obvious that it was not for me. Coincidentally within the realm of the paranormal there is a different kind of photography which I was recently reminded of; (real talk it was because I spent the weekend marathoning The X-Files) Psychic Photography or ‘Thoughtography’. The origins of this particular psychic expression seems to be with a Japanese Psychologist named Tomokichi Fukurai. Fukurai was an assistant professor of psychology at Tokyo University around the turn of the 20th century, around 1910 or so. He was the first to recognize […] Read More
