Author Jeff Danelek presented his research into ghosts and reincarnation from an objective perspective. Defining ghosts as the "disembodied consciousness of a human being," he suggested that they take their form through ambient energy, such as static electricity or ionized particles. Some orbs seen in photographs could represent primitive ghost states, he added.
Everything puts out an electromagnetic signature and when there is a dramatic rise at a particular location (such as at an abandoned theatre he investigated), it could indicate ghostly or paranormal activity. Ghosts have a variety of purposes or missions-- some might be here because they refuse to let go, others are curious, mischievous or malevolent, Danelek stated.
The cycle of reincarnation allows souls to gather a myriad of experiences, but the accrued knowledge is retained on the soul level rather than in the conscious mind, he reported. Past lives could be responsible for phobias and affinities in one's current life and may also contribute to a person's love of a particular country or profession, he said.
First hour guest, remote viewer Paul H. Smith commented that there could be some truth to a Pravda article that claimed Soviet intelligence used remote viewing to spy on U.S. presidents. He also spoke about his recent efforts to teach dowsing methods which were employed by the US government and military as a way of locating targets.
