The following Investigator Notes focus on paranormal studies from a scientific standpoint.  It is our hope to supply the general public with a more intimate knowledge of existing scientific theories and principles through which to filter possible evidence of paranormal activity.  Please note that never in the following Investigator Notes will you hear an absolute explanation for every possible situation. We believe that when it comes to the supernatural, anything is possible.

LOCATION: Mililani, Oʻahu, Hawaiʻi
EXPERIENCE: This ghostly image of a woman's face appeared on an actresses mirror during the filming of the movie OBAKE NEKO, written by Edward Sakamoto and directed by Denny Hironaga.

INVESTIGATOR NOTES: When I first looked at this picture I wasn't sure what I was supposed to be looking at, let alone what paranormal anomaly was supposed to be present. When it was suggested that there was a face I thought to myself, "Well I guess I see it." However, to me this just looks like a dusty mirror that was hastily wiped down. It's important to notice how blurry the rest of the photo is. Because of this, it's impossible to tell what was being reflected off of the mirror and those smudges and light reflections become distorted.
In many cases such as this, 'faces' can be explained as simple pareidolia, which is a psychological phenomenon where random stimuli is perceived as significant. Some other examples would be seeing shapes in clouds or the man on the moon. ~ Matthew

TAKEN ON: February 2010 @ 7:00 - 7:30 am
LOCATION: Saddle City Road, Waimānalo, Oʻahu, Hawaiʻi
EXPERIENCE: This picture was taken on Saddle City Road in Waimānalo between 7:00 - 730 am. The truck driver had stopped and gotten out to take this picture to show his boss that the truck barely cleared the width of the bridge.
It wasn't until he got home and downloaded this picture from his cell phone that he saw what appeared to be a woman in white standing below the bridge. The driver states that he is certain nobody was around this bridge at the time he took this picture. He has also stated that since noticing the anomaly, he has been having a difficult time sleeping.

INVESTIGATOR NOTES: The woman in this picture is far too distinct for me to consider this a case of visual pareidolia. What might have occurred here could be something known as inattentional blindness. The driver's attention might have been so focused on what he had been doing at the time (taking a picture of the truck and bridge) that he simply failed to notice a slightly obscured woman standing on the rocks below. It might sound silly, but sometimes we just miss obvious things due to our attention being focused on other things. ~ Wayne
