You’ve seen the television shows where an investigator is lit up by a night vision camera and something insane happens that makes the investigator crawl right out of their skin, and this is what most people know to be a paranormal investigation. But, there is so much more than what television can avail.
To first know what a paranormal investigation is, we must understand what the paranormal is. According to the dictionary, paranormal is; “denoting events or phenomena that are beyond the scope of normal scientific understanding.” Therefore, paranormal investigating is searching for the answers that do not yet exist. People can find many different purposes for the need or want to investigate those unknown answers. Some are searching to know what is beyond human existence. Some are trying to go beyond the understanding of the existence of one universe.
There are so many answers that are yet to be found, and this is why we investigate. Paranormal investigators use many different methods of trying to communicate with the unknown. As natural communicators, most of our methods revolve around talk or responses.
We try to receive these interactions through technology, sensation, and record keeping. Paranormal investigating is bound to move beyond these methods, but currently, this is what we have to work with and this is what we understand the most.
There has been evidence of the existence of something beyond flesh and bone or the rock of this earth. The goal now is to find out what that is. The chase for the unknown is out there, and if you have the motivation and calling to find that, you may very well be a paranormal investigator. Happy hunting, and may the unknown find you!
