Answers to Paranormal Questions

Q. I bet it's scary doing what you do  isn't it?

A. Not really, it's far too interesting to get scared. If something seems to be happening we won't run away as that would go against what we are there for. It's much more frightening getting the quarterly gas and electric bills! You can sometimes get the odd 'tingle' up the spine but not if you dress warm. It can also get pretty boring when nothing at all happens - which is mainly the case.

Q. OK, so why investigate the paranormal?

A. Good question and so many people have ask.  It's an interesting subject and one of the few mysteries left in life. A lot of people over the centuries have reported seeing strange things so it's only fair that people do try and look into the subject for themselves...why not?

Q. You must be a bunch of weirdoes to do this surely?

A. Yeah maybe but there's weirder things to be doing isn't there? 

Q. Have any of your members been possessed?

A. By what? No, none of us have taken to frothing at the mouth and behaving any weirder than we normally yet.

Q. Everyone knows that ghosts don't exist so you're wasting your time aren't you?

A. Are we? Something is going on so we're not wasting our time if we can help get to the bottom of it all. Can you prove beyond all doubt that 'ghosts' don't exist? We're trying to find out what is really happening to people who experience these 'strange' things.



Q. What is an Orb and where do they come from?

A.  I will simply direct you to this page link which should explain this phenomena     Click here.

Q. What is the S.S.P.R.?

A.   Investigators of alleged paranormal activity as reported by various people in various locations. If a place is deemed to be interesting enough we will seek to go back in there as many times as possible to collate as much information as we can.

Q. Do you charge for your services?

A. No we don't, we are not in this to gain anything financially. Neither will we usually pay anything to places that ask us to go in either. If places have genuine activity going on they wouldn't need to charge for our services, we are very wary of places that do try this. We will however sometimes donate small amounts from our own pockets for the upkeep of historical places and encourage all to do this.

Q. Do you use Ouija boards  or hold sťances?

A.  No we don't, anything that has peoples hands or fingers on them can be open to fakery or unconscious movements. As for sťances, not since my high school days, have I sat in circle holding hands in the old Victorian parlor - but we young and it was not really a paranormal experience -sorry. We have tried to get some response from anything that may be there but we don't use the amateur dramatic route, we have found that it doesn't really add anything to the research to shout at spontaneous phenomena anyway...and why should it if we don't know why these things are happening?

Q. Isn't what you do dangerous? I've seen on other sites that they say you can let bad spirits out and you need to be protected.

A. Why is it dangerous? Yes some people do say it's dangerous etc and go off on flights of fantasy about guardian spirits etc but where's the proof of this really? I'll hazard a guess that these sites also told you that it should be left to 'professionals' too didn't they? Between you and me, there aren't any professionals in this field really - these people want you to think they have all the answers when in reality they only think they do. It can be dangerous if people believe all the nonsense they're told by these 'all knowing spiritual guides to the Universe' without thinking practically. For instance, how many people get possessed walking round their supermarket every day by these 'bad spirits'? Next, look at how many alleged 'mediums' get 'possessed' while in a so called haunted location - makes you wonder doesn't it? Also 'mediums' are supposed to be tuned in more with their own spirit guides to protect them, so surely it would be expected that us mere 'ungifted' poor scoundrels would be an easier target for the bad spirit gangs to have a go at...wouldn't it? Instead we're told we don't understand if we ask questions and raise rational points like the above. Imagination is a very powerful thing isn't it? As for protection, we wear boots! We also make sure we are aware of any Health & Safety Issues.

Q. I have taken photographs with orbs on them, would you like to see them?

A. No thank you, we have plenty ourselves but they don't interest us in the slightest to be honest. Despite some protestations from people that they are the 'first stage of spirit manifestation' there's no proof at all that they aren't just airborne particles of some form or another, camera faults or light refraction etc etc. There's plenty of articles about them on the net both for and against them being of paranormal origin so please do a web search and see what you make of it all.
