This is one topic that once again if you ask 100 paranormal investigators, you will get 100 different answers. What is an orb? Orbs are a semi-transparent ball of light that we find on video and in our photos from our paranormal investigation. Orbs may appear in different colors and shapes. However, most of the orbs will appear to be an off white color and round. So do they count as paranormal activity?
That's the million dollar questions and the most any one can give you is a .50 cent answer.
Some web sites will say yes the orbs are a form of energy and should be considered to be paranormal, while some sites post in bold letters, orbs are nothing more than dust and they have debunked orbs as being paranormal.
So who is right? Good question. I don't know. But here is some food for thought.
Some have come up with the theory that orbs are simply energy being transferred from a source (power line, batteries, and people) to the spirit so they can manifest. In the same theory they also said that it may not even be a conscious thing the spirit is doing, it's just a natural way they get their energy.
So even though the orb itself my only be a form of energy being transferred, its doing so to help a spirit manifest.
Some have claimed that people just fail to clean the camera lens and orbs are nothing more than dirt on the lens. I think I could agree with that statement if every picture they took had orbs in them. However, that is not the case.
For example when we were investigation St. Albans Hospital, in one are of the basement we took a series of photographs. Our first 10 pictures showed nothing at all and then we had an EMF reading and more photographs were taken and orbs appeared in almost every picture. Now we have had people say it was dust, but if that was the case, wouldn't the dust been in the pictures when we first walked in? Also as we were leaving the room there were more photographs taken and not a single orb was noted as we were leaving. Once again, I think if it was dust, they would have appeared more so when our group was moving around v/s setting still for 45 minutes.
One of our investigators was a sensitive and when he said to take a picture, we would and we would usually capture an orb in the photographs he said to take. Coincidence?
Some people claim that orbs are nothing more than a problem with having the film developed. However, that would mean that 10 different locations had the exact same error in processing the film from 10 different people that were using different cameras and film speed.
Then not to mention digital cameras, all my photos were taken using a digital camera. Some claim that orbs in photos online website
are nothing more than an error in the digital processing of the image. True these errors do occur, however, those errors tend so show up in the image as a square and they are not semi-transparent. If it was a digital processing error, the pixel behind would have to be corrupted as well.
Then of course we have some that claim orbs are just a rain drop or mist in the air. It does seem that most people agree not to take photographs or video during rain or bad weather to help rule out the environment as being a cause of an orb.
Another item of interest from the St. Albans Ghost Hunter Adventure was the fact that not every person captured an orb. We had several groups, all with several different cameras and one person in my group took photographs in the same area and close to the same time and had no orbs noted at all in his photos. If it was dust or dirt, we should have all had about the same results from the pictures we took during that investigation and at the same time he took pictures and had orbs and I took the same picture a minute later of the same spot and nothing at all.
Still confused, don't feel bad, so am I. LOL...
I just think the skeptics should think about some of these issues before they condemn an orb as being a fake or fraud and it's some thing for a paranormal investigator to consider when checking their pictures for positives.
Overall, I believe that an orb is energy being transferred from a source to the spirit so they can manifest.
That's my theory and I'm sticking with that.
