THE HAUNT THEORY

We've been told by every made-for-television investigator and countless supposed "credible" paranormal groups that certain levels of EMF can cause ordinary individuals to experience everything from dizziness to hallucinations. Sounds like a sound enough theory, but has anyone bothered explaining to us why???

"Dr. Michael Persinger gives me the lowdown on the haunt theory. Why would a certain type of electromagnetic field make one hear things or sense a presence? What's the mechanism? The answer hinges on the fact that exposure to electromagnetic fields lowers melatonin levels. Melatonin, he explains, is an anti-convulsive; if you have less of it in your system, your brain - in particular, your right temporal lobe - will be more prone to tiny epileptic-esque micro-seizures and the subtle hallucinations these seizures can cause." - Roach, Mary.

SPOOKY KINE SPOTS Q&A WITH WAYNE TAKABAYASHI

Q: Spooky Kine Spots, what is it?

A: Spooky Kine Spots is our list of places located throughout our home state of Hawaii with reported paranormal activity.

Q: How is Spooky Kine’s list different from the other haunted Hawaii listings found on other websites?

A: During our initial planning for Spooky Kine Spots we spent a lot of hours looking at other websites and even some books. We noticed that a lot of them would offer the name of a location they knew little to nothing about and a brief description of paranormal activity that may possibly have happened there. What does this place look like? Where did this information come from? A lot of what we saw seemed to have been cut n’ pasted off other websites. That wasn’t good enough for Spooky Company. Our goal is to give people the most accurately researched information and put together a top quality listing like they’ve never seen before.

Q: What are some of the features that people have to look forward to?

A: First, living right here in the islands, we will provide pictures showing these places we’re speaking about. Our team is dedicated to researching and learning more about these places and reported activities. Where did this information come from? You’ll know if we found it in a book, newspaper, magazine, or website because we will be providing you with all the source information. The most exciting part to me is that as we get to sit down and document more accounts of personal first hand supernatural experiences with island residents we’ll be adding it to the listing!

Q: That sounds awesome! When can we expect to see Spooky Kine Spots?

A: Our team is currently hard at work on the first two locations which will post on both our Facebook and official website www.spookykine.com sometime in the last week of March. From there we hope to have another location, and updates to existing locations every month. We also hope to be hearing from our fans with suggestions and personal experiences that they may have had. STAY SPOOKY!

EVP?

"The human mind is also adept at turning nothing at all into intelligible sounds. C. Maxwell Cede, described an experiment in which a group of people were asked to help transcribe what they were told was a faint, poor-quality recording of a lecture. Subjects offered dozens of phrases and even whole sentences they'd managed to make out - though the tape contained nothing but white noise." - Roach, Mary. Spook. USA: W W Norton & Co Inc, 2006. 186.
