ORBS, SPIRITS, AND GHOST
LIGHTS -- TWO NEW THEORIES

wrote about orbs two years ago, and now I
have a theory as to what orbs might be. Before first I must distinguish
true "orbs" from ghost lights, and discard natural or technical occurring
Ghost lights are often confused
with orbs. A ghost light is a light that you can see with the naked
eye. An orb is an anomaly that is caught by a film or video camera. Most orb photos submitted to us have been taken by digital cameras, a technology
which can mislead. Unfortunately, many of these "orbs" have the characteristics
of dust or humidity particles. Some are even a dot of dust on the

come from dust particles, humidity, pixel distortions, or even bugs.
true orbs actually be? I don't think anyone will ever prove what
true orbs, these balls of energy and light, really are. But I've
on TV shows that orbs are an indication, or a beginning, if you will, of
ghostly activity. We've visited homes where there are no other indications
of other possible activity, nor a history that would explain "ghost" activity.
is an entity that is trapped on earth; "bound" to a place, land, or even
an object. Possibly because they don't know they are dead, or they
loved the place so much, or they don't want to leave, or they can't get
over a horrible incident. One theory is that some ghosts, who may
be very religious, are scared to cross over, for they are scared of what
may be awaiting them on the other side.

can travel between dimensions, heaven, the other side -- wherever we go
after we pass.
our investigations, we caught many orbs in one particular home, on film
and video camera. We had the homeowner sit down and concentrate on
an image. I took pictures of her, and beside her head was a basketball-sized
orb, bright and in flight. She said she'd been thinking of her father,
who had passed.
overnight. When she went to bed, the orb activity slowed, but when
she was up, we caught the best and brightest orbs on camera. Curiously,
the orbs in her home appeared brightest when she or her husband were undergoing
major health problems. The last one appeared before she was rushed
to a hospital.

curiosity, the orbs first showed up around the time the lady learned that
her father might have lied about his name, and that her maiden name might
not be what she'd thought it was. (It is believed that he lied about
his age and name so he could enlist during World War One.) This upset
her and many family members. But it upset her more, because she loved
her father. Could this orb be his spirit coming to apologize, and
to comfort her? I like to think so.
places we've investigated have had no history of ghost, poltergeist, or
other activity, yet orbs were caught on film and video camera.
self-proclaimed experts say that orbs are aliens. I find this outrageous. There is no reason for aliens to visit the above couple, who are in their
70's, live in the country, and lead a regular life. Logic dictates
that if aliens visit us, with all the problems in the world today, they'd
visit a Prime Minister, President, or someone in power.
is that orbs might be energies that we are projecting. Might we be
capable of projecting our energies outwards, thus causing this anomaly? I hope that as our investigations proceed, we will zero in on a more substantial
keep an open mind in studying orbs. But we must also be logical and
scientific. Once all natural and equipment explanations have been
ruled out, then we can hopefully find out what orbs might be.
