I have been researching the relationship of static and ghosts. As with most topics in the paranormal field, there are some conflicting ideas. We will delve into the different ideas in this post.
What is Static?
Static or static electricity is defined as a stationary electric charge built up on an insulating material. In other words static electricity is the imbalance of positive and negative charges. According to assap.ac.uk (Association for the Scientific Study of Anomalous Phenomena), ghosts or spirits do not cause static electricity.
Are Ghosts to Blame?
According to assap.ac.uk (Association for the Scientific Study of Anomalous Phenomena), ghosts or spirits do not cause static electricity. The A.S.S.A.P. website states that there is no scientific evidence of a link between ghosts and static electricity.
Medium, Amanda Linette Meder, has said: “in the moments just before a spirit visually appears, static-like energy appears in the space…it’s one of the ways that Spirit manifests visually.” (2015, Meder, Seeing Static? The Spiritual Meaning Behind Visual Snow) The visual snow type of static that Amanda makes reference to is similar in appearance to the snow that used to happen to television sets. Or as below.
Have you experienced visual static? What are your thoughts on the subject? Let us know.
