Understanding UV/IR & Its Use in the Field

  In the field of paranormal investigating infrared lights, cameras, etc. are commonly used to try and capture a photo or video of entities ….referred to by most as ghost. However, in the past two years and in particular the past year the focus has been on the UV light spectrum. This has occurred for several reasons, and as an investigator and student of the field I’m glad to see the wheels spinning and results happening as the scientist and technical engineers, etc. are diligently tackling the exploration of the UV spectrum and its uses as well as the development of UV devices. Full spectrum cameras have become available but are still very expensive and do not truly reach the highest frequency of the UV range we need to see in. It has become a breakthrough technology that has open yet another window for us human to see through into the unknown.

As I have gathered solid evidence, mostly of EVP (electronic voice phenomena) rather than many questionable photos I have, and study the data and information of the cases I’ve worked on I began to form some theories on how to improve the “capture” of whatever it is on “the other side” that occasionally makes itself known to me. One of these theories formed a couple of years ago was that they move and speak in not a lower, but a higher frequency than we do as human. However, until recently, that technology wasn’t available to the general public and most definitely was not affordable to the average paranormal investigator and ghost hunter.

Thus far, there has been a higher success rate of the capture of anomalies in the UV range versus the infrared range. We are now seeing many more photo and video anomalies, than we were able to see in just the IR range. It has opened a window to a world previously unknown to our human eyes. It all looks to be a very promising path that we still need to move on to reach the true and highest UV spectrum that more than likely holds the key to unlocking so many mysteries.

Almost everything emits, reflects, or transmits some kind of light. The Electromagnetic (EM) Spectrum is the measurement of the frequency range of EM radiation of an object. The frequency is measured in wavelengths.

The long wavelengths/low frequency is: the Radio, Microwave, and Infrared waves.

The short wavelengths/high frequency is: Ultraviolet, X-ray and Gamma Rays.

The Visible Spectrum is the range of the Electromagnetic Spectrum that is visible by the human eye

The simplest way to explain the light spectrum in its application of trying to view “the other side” is this:

UV (UltraViolet) equates to high frequency in short wavelength

IR (infraRed) equates to low frequency in long wavelength

We don’t see the entities with our eyes because the capability of our eyes to brain speed is only capable of seeing in a very limited range. Essentially the entities move at a faster speed than we can process with our eyes/brain. We may occasionally catch a glimpse of a “ghost” and then they are gone. Why? Think of viewing someone moving around in a strobe lighted room. You see them in that particular corner and than they are gone right before your eyes and within a blink seemed to have moved all the way across the room elsewhere before your eyes can even catch up with them. Now take that same scenario but now the person is moving around at even a faster pace.

This same theory would explain why they see us.  I’ve verified this several times with EVPs in which I asked: Can you see us/hear us? With responses that have stated “yes”.

They see us because we are moving like turtles to them.

There are so many more pieces to this puzzle that is connected to the whys and hows of this all. For instance, the movement of cells/atoms in extreme temperature ranges, like absolute zero and the documented cold spots, etc. or external factors like solar flares, etc., but I’ll save that for another entry at another time. For now I will try to just focus on the specifics of UV/IR.

Visable light waves are the only electromagnetic waves we can see. We see these waves as the colors of the rainbow. Each color has a different wavelength. Red has the longest wavelength and violet has the shortest wavelength. When all the waves are seen together, they make white light.

When white light shines through a prism, the white light is broken apart into the colors of the visible light spectrum. Water vapor in the atmosphere can also break apart wavelengths creating a rainbow.

Scientists are searching for, and finding life in unlikely places, by mimicking the way certain animals see the world.

In the same way that dogs can hear sounds outside the range of audible sounds to humans, bees can see things in the world that we cannot. Scientists would like to have better vision outside the range of visible light, for a variety of reasons, one of which is to look for signs of life on other planets

 Light travels in waves called photons, with varying speeds and sizes. Ultraviolet (UV) waves are shorter than the light waves we can see, but other living thing can see UV light. While UV waves are shorter than what we can see, infrared waves are just a bit longer than the red waves we can detect with our eyes, and therefore are invisible to humans. But snakes can see them. In another example of scientists seeing the world like animals do, Paul Falkowski and colleagues at Rutgers University in New Jersey used infrared cameras to discover a new marine life form. They now can see what the ocean "looks" like when examined with eyes that see what our eyes cannot.
