As a thanks for what I hope will encourage you to be taught extra in regards to the Stone Tape Theory, I’m providing the primary two chapters at no cost as a viewing obtain. Find the hyperlink right here.”


This month on Paranormal Insights I’m specializing in the historical past and related materials that pertains to this intriguing concept. Frequently I’ll submit a short article enlightening you on this and different associated topics. I really do hope you take pleasure in!

Status Quo

There are many, many paranormal teams which have surfaced everywhere in the world in gentle of the most recent paranormal craze. In reality, investigating could have change into the latest pattern in hobbies. There are, like with something, some good and unhealthy factors about this social phenomenon. 

One of one of the best factors, in my view, is the truth that since so many individuals do expertise supernatural happenings, then this verifies that the spirit world does certainly exist. For all the atheists and skeptics on the market, you’ve gotten fairly a bit of recent data to course of with the intention to additional uphold your beliefs. But, to every their very own. I definitely respect everybody’s standpoint, it doesn’t matter what my ideas could also be about it. 

Perhaps one of many much less nice issues about having hundreds of investigators combing each spooky constructing all through the world for any knock, disembodied voice or chilly spot, is that a number of the “evidence” actually isn’t respected. I mentioned final month within the article “The Orb Dilemma” (Paranormal Enlightenment Magazine), the difficulty of investigators capturing photographs of a web site after which later discovering white balls within the evaluation. Inexperienced or overly excited investigators will shortly assert that they’ve captured orbs, which in flip counsel the presence of a spirit. This over-exaggeration to search out one thing paranormal can mislead crew members to misread what may truly be mud particles, rain drops, moisture within the air, particles on the digital digital camera lens or another overseas materials. When this occurs, our craft is criticized for being bogus and written off because the musings of paredolia.

A Common Belief   

Since I started nurturing my curiosity within the paranormal a number of years in the past, I seen that there was a prevalent perception that if an investigation web site possessed limestone on it, then a blanket clarification was assumed. This assumption was constant in implying that by some means rocks like limestone and granite are in a position to gas paranormal exercise. 

I by no means as soon as heard anybody clarify why that is, though practically each investigation crew that might make this assertion, the members would all nod their heads in settlement. For some purpose I too joined on this bizarre social contagion and went together with the concept, utilizing this assumption in my very own paranormal investigations. And then in the future I finished and started to marvel – what’s the story behind this unstated rule amongst paranormal professionals?


Surprisingly, for as frequent as this concept is among the many paranormal neighborhood, there actually is not an abundance of knowledge to analysis on the subject. I did discover some good sources, which I’ll share with you. First off, from a fictional perspective, there’s a film named “Stone Tape”. It is a BBC tv play that aired in 1972 and it’s written by Nigel Kneale. I’ve but to observe the manufacturing and it definitely does sound attention-grabbing:


“A research team from an electronics company move into an old Victorian house to start work on finding a new recording medium. When team member Jill Greeley witnesses a ghost, team director Peter Brock decides not only to analyze the apparition, which he believes is a psychic impression trapped in a stone wall (dubbed a ‘stone tape’), but to exorcise it too – with terrifying results…”   (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0069316/plotsummary?ref_=tt_ov_pl)


I encourage you to take a look at the film and extract from it the essential perception that limestone and related rocks are in a position to take up psychic energies. It is from this premise that we soar into the time machine and head again to the roots of this perception.


A Stone’s Throw Back in Time

The origins of this concept takes us again to the 1800’s with a person named Sir William Barrett, who was a physicist and the founding father of the Association for Psychical Research. He was one of many first skilled scientists to start bridging science and the paranormal and he was well-known for learning what occurs on the level of loss of life. His proposal that inanimate objects had been in a position to by some means take up psychic vitality naturally acquired a lot criticism. Barrett absolutely understood the tangibly of psychic energies, as his work is a direct reflection of this controversial topic.


Back in Barrett’s day recording tapes clearly didn’t exist. However, he was nicely forward of his time within the paranormal world. He first turned keen on supernatural phenomenon when he claims to have skilled mesmerism, the transference of ideas from one individual to a different. From right here his pursuits skyrocketed into exploring the world of poltergeists after which the founding of his society for these of his like thoughts. Not surprisingly, he was being harshly criticized for his beliefs.



Barrett can be recognized for exploring the realms of telepathy, clairvoyance, and a number of comparable topics. He experimented with the usage of dowsing rods and finally wrote two papers on the topic in 1897 and 1900. He is likely one of the unstated and unknown pioneers in our paranormal craft and his work started to set the stage for the Stone Tape Theory.


In my subsequent article on this fascinating topic, due for publishing September 25, I’ll stroll you thru the fashionable pursuits of this concept and introduce you to the paranormal explorers behind the motion. 


I hope you’ll be a part of me every weekend as we lead as much as the ultimate launch of Limestone and Its Paranormal Properties: A Comprehensive Approach to the Possibilities…. on September 30, 2015.
